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.

The Twelve Tribes – Part 2

The Oil Lamp Keystone

THE SIXTH SON – THE CHRIST AS THE CHRIST – NAPHTALI (“Science, Theology, Medicine”)
            “NAPHTALI, Jacob’s sixth son {Truth}, was again Rachel’s child by Bilhah her maid.  This time she wrestles and prevails over law (“My sister”), which is the meaning of Naphtali (wrestling).  {Jacob does not wrestle with the law until after Joseph is born.}  Love must wrestle from under law and embrace it.  Naphtali in Moses’ song must possess the west {Science} and the south {Christianity}.  The south (Christianity), in the city foursquare, is human suffering {permitting error}, ‘with its Southern Cross {of Calvary} in the skies {Levi},’ S&H 575, but the west is the ‘Golden shore of love and the peaceful sea of harmony {Judah},’ S&H 575:32-576:2.  Naphtali must rise out of wrestling (south) and go on to Love (west), Gen. 49:21, Jacob’s blessing—‘a hind let loose’ (I have wrestled with my sister and have prevailed—released [let loose]—my son).  This wrestling out from under law to the light of Love opens a door that can never be shut (Love “goes no more out,” Rev. 3:7-13) and it corresponds to the sixth Church—Philadelphia {Brotherly Love; Spirit}, Rev. 3:6-13.  ‘I have set before thee an open door {a Stargate}, and no man can shut it.’ Verses 11, 12 give promise for ‘overcoming.’” (p. 131-132)
            When Levi permits the error of sexual intercourse it leads to spiritualism (Judah).  But Judah, being rightfully interpreted, is the Word (the Bride) of Science.  This tone shows man that Christian Science reverses spiritualism.  It is through the woman’s leaven that Science, Theology, and Medicine are raised up to the point where the Christ consciousness reflects its own Christhood (its own virginity).  The five wise virgins had oil in their lamps so they were allowed to go into the wedding of the bridegroom Lamb and the Lamb’s bride.
            Orgain says that Naphtali’s struggle “corresponds to Rev. 6:12-17, the opening of the sixth seal and the struggle up {via the woman’s leavened bread} to true manhood {the Christ consciousness} and Womanhood {Christhood} above the animal sense, — the animal, and the male and female being the three steps {“Science, Theology, Medicine”} in the sixth day.  The sun, moon and stars are darkened and the earth quakes.  Mental values are all shaken up and changed, as the material sense of animal and man and woman, Gen. 1:24-27, are successively challenged by spiritual values.  ‘Isms’ and ‘ologies’ are forced to yield to their nothingness; Rev. 3:10 warns the Church of Philadelphia of this struggle.

CROWNED WITH TWELVE STARGATES

            “And upon her head a crown of twelve stars” Rev. 12:1.

            They [the Twelve Tribes] are the lamps in the spiritual heavens of the age,” S&H 562:18.

“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.]
