A 'Blasphemous' Secret

"I AM THAT I AM!"
--YHWH, The Old Testament

"Blasphemy: 2. The act of claiming the attributes of God"
Funk and Wagnall's Standard College Dictionary

For those of you wisely following the order of my new blog posts--#1 The Spark and #2 Antique Road Show--for maximum literary effect, its time here in #3 A 'Blasphemous' Secret to talk about Monotheism and Modern Times. And yes, I am going to reveal The Secret of the Universe, so stand by for that.

Now each of the major monotheistic religions has a Secret Mystical Branch. In the Jewish tradition, into which I was born, its the study of the Kabbalah, about which you can easily get basic information these days, just like everything else, from books or online. On the Christian path its Esoteric Christianity (I was in a Gurdjieff/Ouspensky/Nicoll spiritual school for a while). For Moslems, its Sufi (I'm partial to the poetry of Rumi and Khayyam, the tale of Attar and the teaching stories of Mullah Nasruddin). They all come up with pretty much the same thing, just as the pantheists did all around the Earth, before them in an earlier age of the world.

Why is the mystic wisdom of the ages kept secret? Well, I think that in the pre-historic days of the Old Religion (I told you to read those previous posts), it wasn't. But stuck here in the Age of Monotheism as we are right now, which roughly started back towards the beginning of History ( defined as When Writing Was Invented, at least the last time) it is.

Because these days:

A) You can't handle The Truth. Only a personal spiritual Master can lead you safely on the path to it without severe psychological trauma, because you're a screwed up modern Ego Centered human. And hey, I survived the Sixties, so I know of what I speak.

B) You won't value the secret properly unless you find IT yourself through inner work.

C) If you just blab it out loud you'll be killed by fanatics. Of one sect or another. This has been true throughout the Age of Monotheism, and since 9/11, I think you get it.

Luckily, you only know me by my online handle here. And if you find my local space/time coordinates, unless you're a close personal friend, I'll cheerfully deny all knowledge of my actions, like on Mission Impossible).

"I Yam what I Yam and that's all that I Yam"
--Popeye the Sailor

Now THE DIVINE, however you conceive Him/Her/Them/It is a gamer. Isn't that nice? It shouldn't surprise you, since you're made in His image. Before Time Began (as you experience it), He was all alone, and was looking for a game to play. Its a drag being Alone, even if you're Perfect that way. So he blew on His thumb, which caused the Big Bang. Now in this singular Universe (one of many in the Multiverse, and I mean a lot of them) He's currently in pieces, which can only be partially sensed in the physically manifest Universe (aka Midgard; see those previous posts). Some of those fragments are sentient. You are one of them.

"Let's make a deal!"
--Monty Hall, game show host

Imagine what would happen if you went out in the street and said "I am God." Good luck with that. However, here in the privacy of my own blog, I now make the following statement. I am god. No, no, don't feel like you have to worship me. Because you are god too. Feel better? Let's make a deal, I'll tell you about it, and you keep it to yourself and your own close personal friends, okay?

"I'd know IT if I tasted IT."
--Stymie, Our Gang

So all the self aware pieces of God (the totality of them all, which lives in another dimension; perhaps of Inner World or Asgard), as opposed to god--no capital letter--which is what you and I are, are all yearning to merge back into the Totality of God. Sex is the hint you get about this. Have you figured it out yet? Remember, sex its a limited time offer.

"" So show your Union or Civil Service card at the door, and you're in!'
'And that's the story, Jerry?'
'That's the sto-ry!'"
--old TV buyers club commercial

So yep, that's the story. I hope you enjoy trying to fit your own piece of the puzzle back into the Whole, which is the journey of your life. In my family, when we were working on a jigsaw puzzle, we used to start by completing the outside frame and then work our way inward. And I wish you the best of luck this December, in the continuous evolution of making yourself into the most interesting creative Self you can manage, before time is called on you this time around.

Now its time for your next turn in the game, with the next turn of the seasons and the coming New Year. And as the Old Norse used to say, Good Yule!

I have always thought that angels possessed people briefly in order to affect and influence others. That chance meeting in the street that alters the way you look at life...

I have (Traveled) a lot in my time also. I was in the Navy for 13 years. While travelling thru many Countries and Cultures, I discovered somthing amazing, many people belive in the same thing, life after death, basic human needs, treating others with kindness and respect, chairity, love, hope, dreams and crimes against people are not tolerated. So here's to hopeing that we can all get along and to Beer, my strongest belief.
