True Independence

            The United States of America just celebrated Independence Day (2017).  This great country is set up to give men inalienable rights.  It has a Constitution stating these rights.  But, do men sometimes go too far in thinking they have a right to act in certain ways?  Are they misguided and misdirected?  Today there are groups on the left who call themselves anti-fascists.  What these people really are is pro-communism.  They have decided that it is okay to use violence against those they consider to be their enemies even though they may be fellow countrymen or neighbors.  So when they go out and protest (riot) they destroy property, hurt people, and they go up against the police.  Nor do they want to listen to the other’s viewpoint, because they are right (even though they are on the Left).  Some of them are even willing to spin the fable that their group has been infiltrated by their enemy and that it is their enemy who is doing all the damage and violence (but it is not so).  What they have really been infiltrated with are communist George Soros’ paid thugs.  This method (paying thugs to do violence) has been utilized since the Bolshevik riots in Russia (before communism took over the country).  It was the international (international means communism) bankers who paid the communists (Lenin and Trotsky) to hire the thugs and these international bankers paid for the communist revolution.  If the modern day thugs get arrested by the police (for doing wrong – breaking the law) they may find that their freedom is taken away from them, at least for a while.  I guess they are willing to loose their freedom.

THE FOUR HORSEMEN UPDATE

THE FOUR HORSEMEN RIDE AGAIN!  (some new insights)
            Once again, the Jehovah’s Witnesses, in The WATCHTOWER (No. 3 2017), have gotten it wrong about the four horsemen of Revelation 6.  The title of their article is “The Four Horsemen How Their Ride Affects You”.  Below is a graph I made that has to do with the divine infinite calculus, the four living creatures.  The four horsemen are located near the bottom of the second box.

THE CAPSTONE HEAD

Mother’s Consciousness
            While reading from the book building of The Mother Church, by Joseph Armstrong, on page 63, I came to his chapter “mother’s room”.  (I am not sure why he did not use capital letters when titling his chapters.)  He begins his chapter with two verses from the BIBLE.

Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all. — Galatians 4:26

Her children arise up, and call her blessed;…let her own works praise her in the gates. — Proverbs 31:28, 31

Seen below is the capstone that was placed upon the homestead of the Baker family in Box, New Hamphire.  An unenlightened board of directors, in Boston, destroyed it (with dynamite) because they claimed it led to idolatry of Mary Baker Eddy.  The capstone was built by a mason and it is supposed to be the same exact size as the missing capstone to the Great Pyramid of Giza.  The capstone of the original Boston Edifice, is Mother’s Room.

SPIRITUAL INSIGHTS

The following is at the very end of my post – “The Spiritual Idea” – pt. 2.  I wanted to add to it after seeing The Da Vinci Code again (on March 24, 2017).  I have added new material to the post.  I will not go into as great of detail as I could about The Da Vinci Code because I have eleven-part post on it elsewhere called – The Da Vinci Code Uncoded.  (If you have read SPIRITUAL INSIGHTS before April 9, 2017, there have been a few additions made.)

AS IT IS “Teaching must always be by symbols.”

CHAPTER XIII

            Chapter 8, from Alice Orgain’s book AS IT IS, is about symbols, something that I really like!  However, I am not sure I always agree with this author upon the topic of symbols, or what they mean.  And I find that she has a low understanding of symbology.  {Any interpolations I make will be in this type of bracket.}  I will make changes to any spelling mistakes I find, and add italics where necessary, etc.

THE THREE TABERNACLES – Part 4

            Alice Orgain continues on with this chapter, but basically she is finished with her main discussion of the symbols for the three tabernacle churches.

                        “THE CONCORD BRANCH CHURCH
                        “The Third Tabernacle—“Truth,” (S&H 517:9)

            “The Concord Branch Church, as a gift from Mrs. Eddy, illustrates every demand made on Branch Churches as detached from the Mother Vine.  In the front of this Church {on the East Side} is a large round window (similar in shape to the rose windows in The [little] Mother Church) with twelve white pillar divisions encompassing or surrounding a cross and crown as a center.” (p. 526)

concord-rose-window
            Actually, the window is a Rose Window, and there is also a Rose Window found on the Extension’s South Side (and I am guessing there is one on its North Side).  This means that all three “tabernacles” actually have the Unity Matrix found within them.

Shadowchurch

            In the drawing above of The First Church of Christ Scientist, in Boston, it stands alone without the Extension.  Notice that there is the dove of divine Science descending down with a detached branch in its beak.  This matches the dove seen in the second drawing for the eleventh Illustration in Christ and Christmas titled THE WAY (seen below is part of THE WAY, as the dove is hard to make out in the full view I have of the Illustration).

            “The (little) Mother Church is the best interpreter of the limitations of ‘Mother.’  It is lighted by {a star with seven points of light, in the skylight of the auditorium (a picture of this skylight is seen further on)} …and the vestibule leading to Mother’s Room (the latter closed in 1908, Nov. 21, 1908, Sentinel), is also lighted by a seven pointed star {which I do not have a picture of}.” (p. 474)

Bird's Eye View

            Above is a drawing I did, several years ago (even before I saw a satellite photo of the Church) of the original Edifice in Boston.  I am not sure I am accurate with the directions in it either (without actually going there and knowing where true North is located at).  The skylight window is oversized.  In the center of the skylight is the seven-pointed Star, like the one seen in the Vestry.  Below is a close up of what Assembly would look like if it had taken place in the Disney movie Earth*Star Voyager.

Assembly

Assembly

            To me the seven points of each star represents the seven synonymous terms for God:  Mind, Spirit, Soul, Principle, Life, Truth, and Love.  At this time I would like to insert a portion of a letter written by David Nolan in 2003 about Mother’s Room.

THE THREE TABERNACLES – Part 1

Chapter X

            Once more, I would like to quote from Alice Orgain’s book AS IT IS.  {All of my interpolations will be in this type of brackets.}   [All of Orgain’s interpolations will be in these brackets.]  I will capitalize the BIBLE and SCIENCE AND HEALTH WITH KEY TO THE SCRIPTURES.  I will make some grammatical corrections and change spelling mistakes.  I do not agree with everything that Alice Orgain writes on symbolism and Christian Science, and especially when it comes to America’s early 20th century government, but I wish to present it to you as she has, along side my comments.  I also have come to the conclusion that she is not a very great writer, in that she does not know how to get to the point, she seems to get sidetracked (a lot), so I do not think she gets her point across very well at times.  Either she is a bad writer as I think she is or I am just stupid and do not exactly comprehend what she is trying to say.  I really use to think it was me, but after all these years of study and reading her books, I have come to the conclusion that she just is not a great writer.  If you all tend to disagree with me on this point, let me know.  No hurt feelings.
            She gives many references in her book that are not given in her text.  Hopefully you have all the books that you need to look up these statements.  I have not added them to my posts unless I thought it necessary.
            I have included pictures that I have to try and help you understand what she is speaking about.  I do not have many pictures of the Extension, but you can see pictures of the Extension in the book Building of The Mother Church, by Joseph Armstrong and Margaret Williamson, published by the Christian Science Publishing Society, available on line or at Christian Science Reading Rooms.  I could not find pictures of some of the things that Orgain was speaking about in Building of The Mother Church.  I have a few pictures (not good color) of the Concord Branch.  Someone who is a member of the Branch sent me the copies I have about ten years ago.
            Orgain placed the order of the three tabernacles (churches) in a different order from the order in which they were built.  She chose to place them in her order as following a quote by Mary Baker Eddy:  “The ideal man corresponds to creation, to intelligence, and to Truth.” (S&H 517:8-9)  Her order is:  the original Edifice,  the Extension, and the Concord Branch (time wise, Concord was finished being built before the Extension).  She also correlates these three church tabernacles with the experience three disciples had on the Mount of Transfiguration with Jesus, when they also saw Moses and Elias.  “Let us make here three tabernacles; one for thee, one for Moses, and one for Elias.” (Matt. 17:4)
            I would like to put these Three Tabernacles in a different order altogether, in order to follow the order of the United Paramount Network, with the symbols of the circle, the triangle, and the square.  So I will begin with the Extension (in Boston) in Part 1, move on to the original Boston Edifice (because its triangular shape embraces the circular Extension, which Alice Orgain totally ignores or is unaware of) in Part 2, and then finally to the Concord Branch Church (square/network shape) in Part 3.

The Ten Birds in THE WAY

     In Rolf A. F. Witzsche’s book Discovering Infinity – Universal Divine Science – Spiritual Pedagogicals, of 2008, he speaks of the ten birds seen in the second Illustration for THE WAY, the eleventh Illustration of Christ and Christmas.

C&C-The Way (C)

     He explains how these birds relate to ten names defined in the “Glossary” in SCIENCE AND HEALTH WITH KEY TO THE SCRIPTURES, by Mary Baker Eddy.  I differ with him on one point, however, even though the name is not found in the “Glossary” I feel that all ten birds represent Jacob’s children.  Rolf feels that the white dove (“A symbol of divine Science; purity and peace; hope and faith.” S&H 584:26), which is actually descending downward with an olive branch of peace in its beak, represents Jacob, the father of seven sons (the darker birds).  I see this white dove representing womanhood, as she descends (she is not ascending as some of the male birds are).  Some of the birds, however, are going nowhere.
