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)

                                                         SCIENCE
             THE PARAMOUNT MATRIX (1894) – EARTH*STAR VOYAGER
                                    “THE EDIFICE – MOTHER’S CHURCH
                        “The First Tabernacle—“creation,” (S&H 517:9)

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.

            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.

“Glossary”

            What follows is an order that Alice Orgain presents in her book AS IT IS, for Mary Baker Eddy’s 17th chapter in SCIENCE AND HEALTH KEY TO THE SCRIPTURE.  I have written it out a little bit different from how she presents it in her book, but the material is all the same.  All the words in bold are the words defined in the “Glossary” by Mary Baker Eddy.  I would also like to give you the definitions after each grouping is given.
            Some of the definitions have positive (spiritual) definitions and negative (material) definitions.  {All of my interpolations will be in these types of brackets.}

“The Spiritual Idea” Part 2

            The following excerpts are from Chapter 1 of AS IT IS, by Alice Orgain (beginning on page 17 and ending on page 90).  In this chapter she explains the difference between “a spiritual idea” and “the spiritual idea.”  She also speaks about Mary Baker Eddy’s illustrated poem Christ and Christmas.  This is a topic I have spoken a great deal upon, but I think that Alice Orgain has some interesting ideas upon the topic and this is the main reason for presenting this chapter to you.  I have made certain corrections in typing mistakes (misspelled words), punctuation, and when a magazine or book is mentioned I have used italics.  I will also capitalize all letters in BIBLE and SCIENCE AND HEALTH WITH KEY TO THE SCRIPTURES.  All of the words in capital letters, besides the titles of the BIBLE and SCIENCE AND HEALTH were originally in small caps in the book.  {All of my interpolations will be in grouping brackets.}  [When I am not quoting Orgain’s book my interpolations will be in regular brackets.]

THE TWO BEASTS

          As a Christian Scientist I am not supposed to get involved in politics and publicly support one candidate over another.  Mary Baker Eddy told us not to get involved in politics.  However, if I stand back and do not expose evil then how can it become destroyed?  Believe me, I do not want to get involved, nor do I like getting involved in political matters.  I will not tell you how you should vote, but I do believe that you must know some things before you do vote in this year’s election.  I have procrastinated telling you this information because I feel that I should not get involved in such a matter, but since this is the Ark of Truth, then I suppose that the truth needs to come out.

Submission Is Not LOVE

There were a lot of celebrities at this year’s Democratic Convention.  They sang a song from the 1960’s and after thinking about it I no longer like its message.  The words go, “What the world needs now is love, sweet love.  It’s the only thing that there’s just too little of.  What the world needs now is love, sweet love, no not just for some, but for everyone.  Lord, we don’t need another mountain….”  After this I sort of forget the worthless words.

STAR WARS Outline

     Recently a friend called up asking me if I had seen the latest Star Wars movie. I told her no. The reason I did not go see the movie, as I am a big fan of Star Wars, is because I just do not go to the movie theaters any more. After speaking to my friend, I did get to a bookstore to purchase a copy of the book (written by Alan Dean Foster).
     Because my friend was unfamiliar with the six previous movies I decided to write a basic outline of it for her. But it turned out to be more than I had originally intended. So what you read below is what it blossomed into.

STAR WARS Prejudiced?

     I believe it was on December 14, 2015 that a black woman college instructor was on a cable news channel stating that Star Wars was prejudiced. I assume she meant that the show was prejudiced against blacks. I am sure that Billy Dee Williams does not feel that way! Chewbacca may feel that way, after all, we all remember how Han Solo and, sometimes, Princess Leia would say mean things to him (insult him), but he did not seem to mind. I am sure that Kenny Baker and all actors who played Ewoks do not think that Star Wars was prejudiced against them. So what was this woman getting at? How does she think that Star Wars is prejudiced?
