While taking a stroll in the global and ever awake city of internet on the 29th day of March, 2020, I visited a Google Group called TheWay (https://esseneebionitenazirenesoftheway.groups.io/g/main). The group is run by Alan Cronshaw who is a retired Software Engineer and Corporate Manager for Verizon. He lives is North Carolina. Alan claims that he was the brother of Jesus in his previous life, known by the name of James and all that he preaches on his several websites and groups is not just an opinion or philosophy but facts which his eyes witnessed in the past life. He says his real name in the past life was Jacob but he was known by the name of James and he is sent by the Lord to guide in TheWay, as he mentions the below on one of his websites –http://www.brotherofyeshua.com/ . More about him can be read on http://cronshaw.nazirene.org/ and http://nazirene.org
Let’s see how he guides in his den – TheWay. When I went in there I created a thread titled ‘The Kingdom of God is Within You’ and made a post taking a couple of verses from the Gospels describing that the Truth lies which can be experienced through the process of meditation. I thought it would be good topic to initiate the discussions on spirituality as all genuine mystics have said the truth lies within. But Alan was not pleased and he greeted me by asking if I was preaching to the choir. For those of you who may not be aware, choir is an organized group of singers, especially one that takes part in church services or performs in public. They use a rather interesting salutation ‘Shalom’ meaning peace while addressing each other in the group. Below was my first interaction
Purpose of life is to Know your Self. As the saying goes Self-Realization before God realization. Truth is to be found inside – nowhere outside. No one realized the ultimate Truth by dogmas outside. Human birth is the only opportunity to realize the Truth, know the Self. If one continues to indulge in desires and outside rituals and wastes this precious opportunity – one may have to through the cycle of 8400000 species before getting this rarest of rare opportunity of human birth again.
Question remains how does one go within and know the self – answer lies in Meditation. Process is simple but not easy – closing your eyes & ears – withdrawing your attention from the extremities of the body and collecting it behind the eyes. And it is from behind the eyes (which is also called as the Third Eye or Single Eye) that the spiritual journey within begins and one sheds of the covers upon the Self one by one – the physical body, the astral body, the causal body which is the mind – before one gets awareness of the Self.
God can only be found within you. As Jesus, quietly clearly mentions in the Luke’s Gospel:
The kingdom of God cometh not with observation
Neither shall they say, “Lo here! Or, lo there!”
For, behold, thekingdom of God is withinyou.
This is the fundamental truth taught by all mystics – God in within.
New Testament says “The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light”. What is he trying to tell us? How can the eye be single? Same method – withdraw your attention from extremities of the body and collect it behind the eyes and you will see the light within. Your physical eyes are closed but the inner eye gets opened and you behold the vision of the realities within. So, if you want to see the light, single eye must be opened, and you will have to detach yourself from the world and desires as they pull us down and bring us back to this world through reincarnation.
Withdraw your attention and collect it at the eye center – behind the eyes. Open the door within. You will see the light. This is a verifiable truth, available to everyone. Anyone can try meditation, go within and find it out.
Are you preaching to the choir?
My little post triggered an intriguing debate on the thread on whether soul resides in the body and if humans can reincarnate to lower species. Most people on the forum are of the opinion that humans do not reincarnate as animals and Alan cheers them on when they support his own ideas. I thought maybe presenting a few Christian texts may help people look at it from a fresh perspective to better understand these things, so I made another post. This outraged Alan and he shared his links with me which is normally does – sharing several links, reading through which would take several lifetimes but a Sant Mat initiate is promised salvation in maximum four lifetimes. So, I did not have sufficient time to go through his several links which will uncover several other sublinks. Below is my second interaction with Alan –
I agree with all that Jim has been saying. I support the same through following texts –
Can humans reincarnate into animal kingdom? – Yes
When a body dies – desires of the mind lead the soul into another body where the desires can be fulfilled. With all the tampering of the gospels over hundreds of years reincarnation stuff has gone missing. But mention can be found in the letter of Jerome to Pope Damasus:
The doctrine of transmigration has been secretly taught from ancient times to small numbers of people, as a traditional truth which was not divulged.
Arnobius also wrote the below around 300 AD:
It is said in the more hidden mysteries, that the souls of the wicked go into cattle and other beasts after they have been removed from human bodies.
Also below on reincarnation – Josephus:
They say that all the souls are imperishable, but that the souls of good men only pass into other bodies, but the souls of bad men are subject to eternal punishment.
Does Soul reside in the body? – Yes
Alexandrian Jew – Philo Judaeus called the body a prison just like Jesus in the book On Dreams:
The air is the adobe of incorporeal souls, since it seemed good to their Maker to fill all parts of the universe with living beings… Some souls, such as have earthward tendencies and material tastes, descend to the fast bound in material bodies, while others ascend… Of these last, some, longing for the familiar and accustomed ways of mortal life, again retrace their steps, while others pronouncing that life great foolery called a body prison and a tomb….
In another book – On the Giants, he writes:
Some of the souls have descended into bodies, but others have never designed to be brought into union with any parts of earth… But the others, descending into the body as though into a stream, have sometimes been caught in the swirl of its rushing torrent and swallowed up thereby, at other times have been able to stem the current, have risen to the surface and then soared upwards back to the place from whence they came.
These last, then, are the souls of those who have given themselves to genuine philosophy, who from first ti last study to die to the life of the body, that a higher existence immortal and incorporeal in the presence of Him who is Himself immortal and uncreated, may be their portion.
Origen also mentions in Against Celsus –
The soul, which is immaterial and invisible in its nature, exists in no material place without having a body suited to the nature of that place. Accordingly, it at one time puts off one body which was necessary before, but which is no longer adequate in its changed state, and it exchanges it for a second.
In the below quotation also Origeon comments that Basilides credited apostle Paul with a belief in transmigration into forms lower than that of man –
The apostle (Paul) has said, “I was once alive apart from the law,” at some time or other. That is (Paul means), before I came into this body, I lived in the kind of body that is not subject to the law: the body of a domestic animal or bird.
Once again — because it appears that you know nothing about us — you appear to be preaching to the choir. Do you understand the meaning of that statement? Virtually everyone here is familiar with all the quotations that you list. Some are OK. Others not quite OK. If you want to understand many of the posts in this forum, there is a subject-matter index that I use all the time at Direct Hyperlinks To Subheadings http://MasterIndex.Nazirene.org#links .
Alan Writes Again:
What do you know about us? What drew you here to join this forum? I am curious.
xxxx (The group moderator) Writes:
Could you please take a minute to tell us what your interest is in joining the chat group? The purpose of the chat group is to help people learn and understand the core concepts of TheWay, and grow spiritually. If you’re here to debate and disagree, or just have a place to randomly chat, then you may have misunderstood the purpose of the chat group.
Let us know,
Dear Alan and Friends,
Please consider me as a co-traveller on the spiritual path. I have been reading Alan’s website and have been quite impressed, as I found Alan also talks about Going Within. So I thought of joining this forum to learn something new and also participate in some of the discussions. But I have limited time as I am a working Software Engineer and also participate in some of the other forums.
Given the limited time I have at hand per day, it would be really difficult to read through all the links that you share Alan, although I did try to read a few. So, I would request you to share the link where you’ve written about how does one go within? I haven’t come across any text you’ve written on any technique one can utilize for Going Within. Hope you can help with it.
Now that I am here – let me also contribute to the forum.
What does one find when they Go Within?
Anyone who goes within will encounter light and sound within. Lighting of candles in a Church is only symbolic to the light within and the ringing of a bell is only symbolic of the bell sound within. I did mention about the light in the previous post, let me also make a mention of the sound that can be heard within. The sounds that we hear in the physical world last only for a specific duration of time but the divine music within goes on forever and forever until the creation lasts.
The soul has two primary internal faculties – inner vision and inner vision. Jesus also talks about these two internal faculties when he says –
“Blessed are your eyes, for they see, and your ears, for they hear.
For verily I say unto you, that many prophets and righteous men have desire to see those thing which ye see, and have not seen them;
And to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them” [Matthew 13:16-17]
The same idea is conveyed in the Gospel of Thomas:
“I shall give you what no eye has seen,
and what no ear has heard,
and what no hand has touched,
and what had never occurred to the human mind”
These texts clearly prove that Jesus did teach about awakening of inner vision and inner listening. The Word of God is heard in the form of most beautiful music within. This divine music is the beginning of everything we see in the creation. This divine music is also the real music of spheres.
What does this divine music or the music of the spheres sounds like?
In the beginning anyone who goes within comes across the lower sounds at first which are similar of little bells tinkling or birds chirping or the sound of crickets, etc, but these sounds have no pull and are not capable to pulling your attention further up. But still a meditator must keep the focus on these sounds and try to catch the sound which is coming from far away, as these sounds are one behind the other. When one puts the attention of the sound which is coming from far away, it will come closer. Meditator must continue this practice until they catch the big bell sound which has the pull, so much that it can sweep you off your feet. The attention will get withdrawn from the extremities of the body instantly with the pull of the bell sound. Once one catches the bell sound within, all one has to do is keep their attention on sound and the sound will do the rest. Gradually as one makes more progress one will come across many other sounds of the higher planes of consciousness within like that thunder, trumpets, flute, harp and many other instruments. I say all of this with personal experience. This is not a work of fiction as some may think of it.
The Book of Revelation talks about some of these sounds-
“And I heard a Voice from heaven,
as the Voice of many waters,
and as the Voice of many waters,
and as the Voice of a great thunder:
And I heard the Voice of harpers,
harping with their harps.”
It was this divine music itself through which Jesus collected its marked sheep and it is this divine music only through which all other Masters who come to the earth collect their market elect. Following is mentioned in St Matthew’s apocalypse:
And he (the Son) shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other. [Matthew 24:31]
Anyone who wants to Go Within must seek for the sound within. But they will also have to seek for a spiritual master who already connected with the light and sound within and connect anyone who comes to them to the sound as well. Jesus said “As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.” Jesus was a Perfect Master of his time connected with light and sound within. But the seekers of today will have to seek for a Perfect Master of the present time.
Love & Regards,
One of the group members asked pertinent question on the necessity of a living master. I thought this was a good question and a topic which should be discussed on a spiritual forum such as this so I tried to answer the question as below –
That’s a very good question. This doubt certainly comes to a seekers mind- why would they need a living teacher? Can we not take on the inner spiritual journey all by ourselves? Let’s carefully examine this argument.
Haven’t we always required a teacher, a guide, a Master in our lives? When we were younger, it was our parents who guided us. When went for education it was our teachers who served as our guides. When we begin to work, it is our seniors who help us out. When we need a guide even for our ordinary crafts, how can we do without a guide for the spiritual journey within which is unknown to us? A teacher is necessary is every department of life. Spiritual journey within is the most difficult and most important of all human activities, as it is the sole purpose of human life. So certainly, we stand in need of a spiritual teacher, a spiritual guide, a spiritual master. Well, consider an analogy – if we are dying of thirst, shall we insist on digging the well ourselves and refuse water offered by a friend? Similarly, earnest seekers of God do not refuse help offered by the spiritual teachers of the time.
These Perfect Masters keep coming to this world from time to time. There is always at-least one Perfect Master in the world who is the light of the world. Jesus was a Perfect Master of his time and those who came in contact with him during his lifetime benefited from him. Jesus has been referred to us Son of God, but he is not the only Son of God who has come to his creation. The Word and the Master (Son of God) are one. All Perfect Masters are Word incarnates and that why it was said that Word was made flesh –
“And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us,
(and be beheld his glory, the glory as of the Only-Begotten of the Father),
full of grace and truth.” [John 1:14]
The mystery of all Perfect Masters is that they are Word made flesh. They are incarnations of the creative power of God. That is why the Christian concept of trinity came into being – God the Father, Word as the Holy Ghost and Master as the manifestation of the Word. Jesus made is clear that we can only hope to reach God through the Son of God (a living Master) at human level. John says –
“Of his fullness have all we received, and grace for grace.
For the law was given by Moses,
but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.
No man hath seen God at any time:
The Only-Begotten Son,
which is in the bosom of the Father,
he hath declared Him.” [John 1:16-18]
He says the law was given was Moses, a Saint in whom all Jews had faith, but since Moses is dead, it was important to go to living Son of God (living Master), in this case Jesus. Jesus also made it clear that no one can see God unless the Only-Begotten Son, that is a living Master, reveals him. Jesus says –
No man hath ascended up to heaven,
but he that came down from heaven,
even the Son of man which is in heaven…
For God so loved the world,
that He gave His Only-Begotten Son,
that whosoever believeth in him should not perish,
but have everlasting life.
For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world,
but that the world through him might be saved.
He that believeth on him is not condemned:
but he that believeth not is condemned already,
because he hath not believed
in the Name of the Only-Begotten Son of God. [John 3:13,15-18]
Read carefully what Jesus is saying. He says God lovingly sent His Son into the world to save the human beings from birth and death as he mentions they should not perish and have everlasting life. Saint John again makes it very clear that no man can come to the Father but through the Master in the following verse –
“I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life:
no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also:
and from henceforth ye know Him, and have seen Him.” [John 14:6-7]
Coming to the practical aspect of the inner journey. When we close our eyes – all we see is darkness. Then how do we connect with the light and sound these Masters are talking about? Although the light and sound is within each and every one of us but the key to the inner door resides with the living Master of the times. So it is essential of any individual who seeks to go within to find the living Son of God, the Word made flesh, a living Master.
Love and Regards,
Another group member then countered my opinion by bringing up the analogy of the cross. So I explained them what the true meaning of taking up your cross daily was.
Didn’t our brother Jesus command that those who wanted to walk in the way should pick up their own cross and follow him that way? In the end no person can walk The Way for you , this you must do with the guidance of your HSS, not another man. Jesus showed us the way, now we must emulate not mindlessly gain Oneness by proxy.
And do you understand what Jesus meant by taking up the cross daily?
I have already mentioned a few times before that the attention must be withdrawn from the body and collected at the single eye. Jesus described this withdrawal of attention to the Single Eye was described as ‘taking up the cross.’ It’s an analogy so is a little difficult to understand. Do remember, when Jesus said this, he was not crucified, so any relation to the death of Jesus on the cross would not be apt. Following can be found is Luke’s variant –
“If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.”
Taking up the cross daily means daily practice of meditation without which no one can claim to be a disciple. In Matthew, Jesus says –
“He that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, not worthy of me.” [Matthew 10:38]
You must be wondering how ‘taking up the cross’ refers to meditation? Now, crucifixion was a common form of execution in those days. Even mass execution was performed by this means. Therefore, crucifixion referred to slow and lingering death. Practice of meditation is similar, process of death while still alive. Jesus said ‘I die daily.’ The cross represented slow death of withdrawal from the body during meditation. When we meditate and slowly the attention begins to withdraw the body begins to numb just as it happens at the time of death. Peter also talks about the cross in Acts of Peter –
“What else is Christ, but the Word, the Sound of God?
For the Word is the upright beam whereon I am crucified.
And the Sound is that which crosses it, the nature of man.
And the nail which holds the cross tree to the upright,
in the midst thereof, is the conversion and repentance of man”
He says the real Christ is the Word, the Sound of God. Peters then tries to say that Word is the main trunk of the cross. It is the tree of life. Meditator is crucified, means loses his sense of individuality by dying while living and merging with the sound within. Branch of this tree of life which crosses it is the soul. Its reality is the divine sound. The nail represents the single eye. The cross and its different parts have deep symbolic meanings.
During my interactions with him and his group, when Alan found out that the conversation is not going his way, he got really mad at me and started attacking me. Some of the posts below-
Shalom Dear Pankaj:
You do not seem capable of entering into an interactive conversation with others — especially those not programmed into Eastern philosophy. If I state to you that I have a very different understanding of the Soul, instead of taking the time to acquire an understanding of what I am making reference to, you continue as if I had never said a word back to you. Thus far, attempting to communicate with you is like communicating with a wall that has been marred with graffiti — which can only repeat the words that have been imprinted on it by others. With regard to your quoting the scriptures to me, I just love it when you quote the words that my own Soul’s personality originally wrote. In my experience, those who have emerged out of the Eastern philosophies are generally incapable of comprehending the Gospels, because they interpret the scriptures from an Eastern perspective — which is not the same as the teachings of the New Covenant.
I have not seen any wisdom in support of why — based upon my understanding of the Soul as that part of us that is eternal and has always existed — dwells under the clutches of the mind. Wholeness requires the development of the Whole self — and is necessary in the process of mental-expansion and spiritual-deepening. What you are promoting is typical Eastern philosophy that attempts to get above the physical and mental, and gaze at the spiritual centers in the head. While it is true that the teachings of Jesus are for all of humanity, it is also true that only a few of humanity have progressed to the level where they are able to perceive and comprehend the spiritual meaning of these teachings. Each person can only understand in accord with their own level of Soul-Attainment. And this is true of all spiritual paths and philosophies. Which means that the understanding of these teachings among the multitudes, have virtually nothing in common with the actual teachings — and the same is true of both Eastern and Western teachings. You seem to have missed the point that no one here is against meditation. What we maintain is that there is a great deal more than meditation. In contradistinction to what you are stating with respect to getting above the mind and the Soul being in the clutches of mind, the Original Gospel teachings was a system that develops the mind. You are the embodiment of the Eastern system — and in all your posts, you do not seem to be able to comprehend anything outside of that system. And in view of the fact that your Soul has probably followed that path for lifetimes, it is serving you well. Others have not followed the Eastern path, and you do not appear able to interact with them. Just my observation.
Meanwhile, Jim’s friend Pankaj is here to teach us that parable have a deeper spiritual meaning.
Good thing that Pankaj came to teach is these things about the Gospels.
I am not sure that Pankaj can communicate with us in English. He has his preachings in his attempt to convert Christians to Sant Mat, and he can’t go beyond his talking points. My HSS taught me the Tree of Life — and at the time I had virtually no understanding of what it was. Spirit explained the 12 spheres of mind — and how they relate to the organs and mind of the body. As far as I know, I am the only Source. Pythagoras did not write down his esoteric teachings. Plato wrote in allegory and analogy. Whatever was written by Gurduieff, was only half baked. There is only one place you can get an understanding of the functioning of the Law of Octaves within the pattern of the Tree of Life — and basically all that I know. was taught to me from On High. And it is the core teaching to the growth and perfection of the mind of man.
Ah, so that’s how
TheWay and its members become Whole? Through sexuality?
Are you lying to us — or can you point out anywhere I have written that sex makes a person whole? When I use Whole, it is in the same context as the Gospels wherein Jesus said: “They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance” (Mark 2:17). Sex does not make the mind of a person Whole.
My question is whether you are outright lying to the forum? Or can you quote where I said that having sex makes a person whole. Since you lack the intellect to carry on an interactive conversation, I may have less patience with you than with Jim. Therefore, I am awaiting your reply.
Shalom Lying Pankaj:
I am awaiting the quotation where I said that having sex fulfills the teaching of Wholeness in the Gospels.
Did you read the post from xxx or are you pretending you didn’t notice it?
You were created as one half of the whole and if you do not embrace your other half, how can you expect to be made whole? Women have an abundance of an essence that is lacking in men and vice versa. By man uniting with his wife and becoming one, he opens up a whole new world of growth for himself.
I was making reference to the duality of what is personified as the Tree of Knowledge. Which means that from the perspective of the Soul, you are half of the opposite female polarity. Your own soul is neither male nor female — but is the perfect balance of all opposites. Physically, man and woman are of course opposite polarities. Sex does not fulfill the Gospel portrayal of Wholeness. Notice the words in the below: By man uniting with his wife and becoming one, he opens up a whole new world of growth for himself.. This is true — i.e., you open up many possibilities that is dependent upon your thinking and actions. Your statement was: And you seriously believe these were also the teachings of Jesus? Becoming whole by uniting with wife?
That is not only a dog-faced lie, but it is a total misrepresentation of what I have stated.
What about his buddy Pankaj. I don’t see him serving any purpose.
He serves as St. Ankle Biter IV, one of Jim’s appointed minions.
Do you realize you and your chaps are getting into name-calling? Does it
suit spiritual people?
By the way, no one serves any purpose here until they dance to your tunes. Am I right?
Without apologizing, you put forth a bold faced lie — stating that I said that having sex fulfills the requirement of Wholeness in the Gospel teachings. In the article on the Tree of Life I make the statement: “Because of self-ignorance, the vast majority of marriages between a man and woman are limited to the physical, the emotional and the forming of a family.” Thus, your assertion that sex in a marriage fulfills the teachings of Jesus on achieving Wholeness, is a total misrepresentation of what I have stated. So, since you lie and misrepresent the concepts set forth in this forum why should we continue your privileged of membership?
When Alan thought he is giving me some privilege by allowing me to be on his forum, I left the forum on my own accord. But below texts on the issue from Alan’s writings deserve close reading to understand his lies.
Allan in his writings: Thus, the Feminine-Intuitive is absolutely necessary for the development of the Male-Linear spheres of mind — and because the Linear always attempts to control and suppress the Intuitive, it is necessary for the separation of the gender-opposites in order to bring about the development of mind and spiritual evolution of the Soul. In many respects, it can be factually stated that the interaction of the opposites in the form of the insatiable appetite and necessity of sex, is the catalyst to bring about the development of mind and consciousness IN ACHIEVING A HIGHER PLANE OF WHOLENESS AND COMPLETION.
Sex as a Sacred Sacrament: When used properly within the form of a Divinely Ordained Marriage, sex is the Temple Sacrament that bridges the physical divide — the catalyst that enables the husband and wife to create new life within themselves in the endeavor to make and grow the two into a state of Oneness. But though the connection of thoughts and impressions is beyond the conscious awareness of the average person, in relation to the true depth and dimension of marriage, it is only the being. As a husband and wife begins to enter into a spiritual meditative sexual relationship, the raising up of the energies gives birth to Higher Consciousness.
The merger of minds during Sacred Sex: When a man and woman in a Genuine Spiritual Marriage equally purifies and cleanses their physical bodies so as to make them conducive to an environment of Higher Consciousness — eliminating all defilements and physical/mental pollutants which enables a higher vibratory frequency of vital life-force from God to flow through their bodies, which effectually saturates their minds with a spiritually vibrant flow of Illuming Light Energy — consecrating their minds to the seeking and living of Higher Truth — and both equally begin to explore the sexual relationship in a meditative manner where it is the energies that move and permeate their being in the endeavor to open the inner door of Higher Consciousness and the Kingdom — a totally unexpected thing begins to happen. Because the mind is not the brain, as medical science erroneously believes — but rather, is the field or etheric body which surrounds and animates the physical body, in meditative sex the mind of each not only begins to intermingle, but the mind of the woman is able to enter into that of her husband, and the mind of the male is able to enter into the body of the wife. Each will be able to perceive themselves from the perspective of their spouse and opposite sex. The result is a sacred connection not only between the husband and wife wherein the two physical forms become a common platform that each equally inhabit, but inner gender based suppressed polarities begin to manifest in the life of both husband and wife. Initially, the feminine nature of the male and the masculine nature of the female begins to manifest in the body of their respective spouse during these extended periods of meditative Sacred Sex. In time, the two begin to become complete within themselves as each becomes Whole as the polarity of male and female is merged and the consciousness is transformed through the emergence of a higher soul reality that is neither male nor female — but something greater thatn the two. This becomes a truly spiritually transforming experience which is multidimensional in a transcendent nature, that gives a totally new comprehension of the biblical reality where the husband knew his wife.
Therefore, it is only when we begin to perceive the higher spiritual reality of sex, that we can understand the grave warning of the Apostle when he wrote: “Or do you not know that he who is joined to a harlot is one body with her? For ‘the two,’ He says, ‘shall become one flesh’ …Flee sexual immorality. Every sin that a man does is outside the body, but he who commits sexual immorality sins against his own body” (1 Cor 6:15-20 NKJ).
Allan: The problem is that this cannot be accomplished through denial. While it is true that from a biblical perspective the commandment to “be fruitful and multiply… subdue it; have dominion over… every living thing that moves on the earth” does not apply to the outside world — but rather, the world of our physical body. What the quasi-Buddhist religious philosophy of Paul fails to realize is that because of the complexities and trials of the transmutation of the flesh into a truly spiritual being, it is far easier to change ourselves through the mirror of our reflected reality that we perceive and interact with in this world.
What this means is that because a man or a woman is half a polarity of the whole, it is far easier to interact with and perfect one’s own missing half through a spiritual interaction with one’s own spouse. Moreover, because of the dynamics of the sexual relationship where part of oneself becomes physically intermingled in the physical body of one’s wife or husband — and the fact that this exchange of sexual/spiritual essence opens the door to the mind of the opposite polarity as the two become One Flesh — all the elements to true spiritual development and manifestation are present within the construct of a Genuine Spiritual Marriage between a husband and wife who consecrate their lives to the Lord and living in the Commandments of the Royal Law of the Most High.
Once one begins to realize that all that exists is the manifestation of the Three Forces of Creation interacting within each other — i.e., Male, Female and the Offspring of the Divine Mind — and that these Three are manifest throughout all realms and worlds from the least to the greatest — then one also must recognize that sex is a spiritual sacrament that can only be a sin when misused — and only then when the individual possesses the knowledge to know better. In fact, once one begins to realize that because we are Created in the image of God, and we are imbued with the Divine Pattern of Creation, sex in the life of the individual become an absolute necessity.
