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.)

THE THREE TABERNACLES – Part 2

CHAPTER 10 (Continued)

            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.

            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.

A Book Review on Christian Science Our Glorious Heritage – Where has it gone?

            A friend of mine ordered a copy of Christian Science Our Glorious Heritage – Where has it gone? My friend ordered it directly from Amazon, there was no packaging slip; so, I do not know what the price of the book is. It is written by Christeen Anderson, made in the USA, San Bernardino, California. The date is given as January 20, 2016. A good portion of the book has Xerox copies of letters, newspaper clippings and other printed material to substantiate her quotes.

THE FOUR GOSPELS – Part 2b

THE FOUR GOSPELS’ HOLY CITY MATRIX (Part 2b)

Continued from St. Mark – Part 2a

Christ as Christianity (continued)
            In chapter 11 Jesus enters Jerusalem, the city of peace, unto Bethphage (“house of figs; house of unripe figs” [Metaphysical Bible Dictionary]) and Bethany (house of figs; …place of crossings; place where crossings are made; place of fords” [Metaphysical Bible Dictionary]}, at the mount of Olives.
            “Jesus enters Jerusalem. ‘Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord,’ the people shout. But, from the spiritual point of view, their thought is as fruitless and sterile as a barren fig tree.   It is like the commercialism that pollutes the temple. The real house of God, ‘called of all nations the house of prayer,’ is the Christly body of mankind. The temple must therefore be cleansed of its material greed and corruption. So Jesus rides into Jerusalem upon a colt and then cleans out the Temple of the moneychangers. First the Christ is recognized to fulfill Bible prophecy and then the Christ drives out the materially minded from the Christian body.”[1]
            Jesus first cursed the fig tree and the following morning they passed by the same fig tree “dried up from the roots.” Peter brought the tree to the remembrance of the Master. Jesus replied, “Have faith in God. For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith. Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them. And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any; that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses. But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses.” (Mark 11:20-25)

The Star of Bethlehem Flower and the Ark Keystone

     On November 11, 2014 I noticed something that I had never seen before, even though it was right there in front of my eyes!  What I realized is that there are flowers in the painted windows of the original Boston Edifice and these flowers represent stars.  On November 12, 2014 I looked up white flowers and found the Star of Bethlehem (Hyacinthaceae Ornithogalum umbellatum) and knew that it was a match to the flowers in the windows, even though they only have six petals while the Star-Flowers in the windows have seven petals for the seven synonymous terms for God:  Mind, Spirit, Soul, Principle, Life, Truth, and Love.  It also occurred to me that these flowers were used in the Christ and Christmas matrix (which I call Sharon’s Rose Matrix) that was made by Ingeborg Tillisch Kelley in 1971 for “The New Story of Christ.”  Seen below is a picture showing part of this matrix.  The twelfth petal has, what I think to be, seven Star of Bethlehem flowers on it (each flower having seven petals).  Kelly says that this flower was “inspired by” a Rose Window in the Concord Branch church that was described in Alice L. Orgain’s pamphlet, The Tree of Life.  The following is from Kelly’s work and ‘quotes’ from Orgain’s work.

            “‘Over twenty-two years ago my book AS IT IS described on page 551 the central medallion placed above the two lateral transept windows in the Concord Branch Church….In the center of the Church medallion appears a large conventional symbol of a flower, conjoined with fruit – the flower symbolizing the prophecies of the Bible and the fruit, their fulfillment, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures.’  [I am not sure if the picture that is directly below is the actual flower she is speaking of as it only has four petals.  I found other California Star-flowers but they were white not yellow, as seen below the yellow flower.]

The New York State Seal and the Two Sentinels

     A question came to me after writing about the Christian Science Sentinel’s cover changes in my last post.  “Why did the two women have their eyes shut at first and then later on, that same year, have their eyes open?”  Certainly, to be a sentinel you must have your eyes open.  What was it that Mary Baker Eddy was symbolizing when she had their eyes shut?

Arrangement In Science

The following is from John Doorly’s Talks on Science of the Bible Vol. 1. However, I have added interpolations and new insights into his works. As his book was from a lecture he gave in 1947, and we have had some sixty-three years of spiritual progress.

THE DARK CRYSTAL is Translated Back to THE LIGHT CHRIST-ALL

     Even though Jim Henson was raised in Christian Scientist I am not sure that the movie was completely based upon Christian Science as another man worked with the script. This is not to say that Henson’s ideas did not prevail, I am just saying that I am not sure how much of the movie was based upon Christian Science. Jim Henson, I have been told, studied John W. Doorly’s works, so he would have been familiar with the matrix system.
