The physical body is little more than a symbol, an operating convenience—the end product of energies oscillating within.
Soul is not a spirit with hazy contours appearing whimsically to people in a religious trance. This image belongs in Hollywood, in films such as “Ghostbusters”: great fun, but far from reality.
Soul is a biblical name for our Subconscious, or the sum-total of memories, which identify us from other “Entities”. And those Entities are, by definition inseparable Individualizations of the Omnipresent Universal Consciousness. Although we give It some esoteric names, this Universal Consciousness referred to by many as God, is beyond any definition. As Baruch Spinoza once said, “to define God is to deny God,” as the act of defining sets limits, and thus detracts from the Infinite. Spinoza paid dearly for daring to speak the truth. At human level we can think of the Universal Consciousness as the Unconscious, which is the Infinite Source of ideas. Then, depending on the evolutionary level we’ve achieved, we can attempt to convert those ideas into thoughts, ignite them with imagination and eventually bring them out, so to speak, into the transient, ephemeral, illusory phenomenal reality.
Now imagine Yeshûa attempting to explain this to Peter, the other apostles, and to a lesser degree the “Many”. Even speaking to the “Few Chosen Ones”, he often commiserated with “Why do you not understand my speech?!” (John 8:43 et alii: other references at http://tinyurl.com/q4x36wa ). The language Yeshûa spoke did not offer ‘modern’ terminology.
Today, thanks to Albert Einstein and Max Plank (Niels Bohr, Louis de Broglie and a few others), we are just beginning to grasp the consequences of the permeability of ‘matter’. This, in turn, leads to the creative process, which allows various energies to change their rate of vibration, and to slow down sufficiently to become detectible to our senses.
How Yeshûa learned the Universal Truth must, at least for now, remain a mystery. Yet, but some means or other, perhaps by direct thought transfer, he managed to inspire Peter sufficiently for him to grasp the essence of indestructible amorphous energy of Consciousness.
Paul did not enjoy this one-on-one educational advantage. All along he suspected that Peter was right, and that the journey that he, Paul, was not quite on the right track.
It took Peter an incredibly traumatic experience, a threefold denial of knowledge of his Master, teacher, and friend, before he managed to sublimate his ego. It's that difficult. Sublimation of ego means the loss of the sense of separation from the Whole.
It was even harder for Paul. Brought up in Jerusalem, schooled at the feet of Gamaliel in the law of the fathers, he fought any intrusion into tradition. Yeshûa’s teaching was anathema to him.
Until one day…
Until one day he had a vision. From that moment on he did the best he could to prepare people at large, the Many, for the “Good News”. Alas, he lacked the Master’s personal touch.
It wasn’t easy. Read on…
