ALIVE IN THE LAND OF THE LIVING DEAD.
“The dead are not alive, and the living will not die.”
-The Gospel of Thomas
There are 2 main states:
The Dream State (Dead)
The Wake State (Alive).
The words: Dead, Dream, Wake, and Alive each have multidimensional meanings and can be applied to both Physical and Spiritual applications. We oscillate between these states just as we do with our conscious awareness.
We die twice, the spiritual then the physical.
We are born twice, the physical then the spiritual.
“Awake oh sleeper, and rise from the dead, and Christ will shine in you.”
We all know what the physical death is but what about the spiritual death/birth?
The spiritual death and the spiritual birth happen simultaneously.
When the ground (the mind) is fertile for the ‘seed of the soul’ to be imbued with life, that is when one will experience the spiritual death/birth. It is violent, in a way, the same way a physical birth is. It comes so suddenly that there is no way to prepare for it. It's a shocking internal/spiritual experience during the waking state. All is revealed so quickly that it can create much disturbance in the body of the being, a spiritual trauma so to speak.
“Father, I see the All, I see myself in Mind.
This is, my son, Rebirth—no more to look on things from body’s view-point (a thing three ways in space extended)”
The veil is lifted to reveal who one truly is, thus shattering many false beliefs and ideas in the blink of an eye. It reveals the dream to the dreamer and the dreamer to the dreamed. During the experience, one is ‘split into two’ to become ‘one’. It is the resurrection from the dead, it is when two halves (the inner & the outer) become whole. The trinity of soul evolution. This is what it means to be ‘born again’.
“Jesus said to them, "When you make the two into one, and when you make the inner like the outer and the outer like the inner, and the upper like the lower, and when you make male and female into a single one, so that the male will not be male nor the female be female, when you make eyes in place of an eye, a hand in place of a hand, a foot in place of a foot, an image in place of an image, then you will enter [the (Father's) domain]." - Gospel of Thomas
The evolution of the human being is Godly. One must pass from the ‘Dream’ state to the ‘Wake’ state spiritually in order to ‘transcend’ death and spiral up the great ladder to the ‘next level’ of the soul’s journey. If he continues to sleep and not (spiritually) wake up (transcend), he will remain like the Ouroboros in a constant repetitive circular path of life & death until the cycle is finally broken by the ‘rising’ of the spirit.
To dream is eternal such as death. One can’t remember the countless lives they’ve had prior to this incarnation. Just as nightly dreams are forgotten the moment one wakes up (usually). We die each day to be born anew. To ‘spiritually’ dream while ‘physically’ awake, is the life most people live. But after one wakes up in the dream, one will realize the countless souls that remain asleep. Such as this quote from Leonardo Da Vinci, “I awoke only to find that the rest of the world was still asleep.”
Jesus experienced the ‘CHRIST’ rise within him, the ‘resurrection’ from death to life. Purification of the mind leads to alchemy of the ‘soul’.
"The heavens and the earth will roll up in your presence, and whoever is living from the living one will not see death." Does not Jesus say, ‘Those who have found themselves, of them the world is not worthy’?"
-The Gospel of Thomas
To Dream is to be Dead | To be Dead is to Dream
To Wake is to be Alive | To be Alive is to Wake
2 sides of one coin, the MIRRORED/Reflected NUMBERS IN GEMATRIA:
It is no coincidence that the corresponding numbers of both ‘dead’ and ‘dream’ mirror/reflect each other:
(Gematria ENGLISH ordinal cipher):
DEAD (14) | (41) DREAM
(Gematria REVERSE full reduction cipher):
WAKE (23) | (32) ALIVE
** Note: SOUL also equals 23, Just like WAKE **
DEAD (14) + DREAM (41) = 55
WAKE (23) + ALIVE (32) = 55
Each SINGLE word reduction = 5.
Each ‘side of the coin’ adds up to 10.
DEAD (1+4) =5
DREAM (4+1) =5
WAKE (2+3) =5
Reduce 10 down further and you get 1. One, Neo
“the Ten [powers] is that which giveth birth to souls. And Life and Light are unified there, where the One hath being from the Spirit. According then to reason (logos) the One contains the Ten, the Ten the One.” -Corpus Hermeticum
(The 10 powers are: Knowledge of God, Joy, Continence, Endurance, Justice, Unselfishness, Truth, Good, Life, Light)
which leads to….
And the Lord will be king over all the earth. On that day the Lord will be one and his Name ONE.
~ Zecharia 14:9
Add up 55 + 55 = 110 ((DEAD + DREAM) + (WAKE + ALIVE))
Further reduced to master number 11.
Oh and Guess what?
ONE = 11 in Gematria (reverse full reduction)
“For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.”
~ Colossians 3:3
“Wherefore I praised the dead which are already dead more than the living which are yet alive.”
~ Ecclesiastes 4:2
“Man, even if he obtains occasionally a glimpse of divine truth, is only too prone to forget it again at the next moment, as the action of his terrestrial mind is stronger in him than that of his spirit, and it seems therefore necessary to be reminded over and over again that the faith [of which Paracelsus speaks] is not the illusory faith of the brain, the product of speculation, but a power belonging to those FEW LIVING SPIRITS walking within this sleeping world.
As physical powers belong to the physical and terrestrial man, so spiritual powers belong to the spiritual man who must be born before he can know and exercise these powers… “
~ Franz Hartman M.D
