THE HOLIEST THE HOLIEST BOOK, HOLIEST ONE
"And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech." (Genesis 11:1)
<1>In the last chapter, the sentence, "every one after his language" (Genesis 10:5, 20, 31) shows that there had been many languages on earth. This verse here means that humans still had the telepathic ability to communicate with each other. Therefore all humans could understand each other easily by this way of communication (whenever they chose to use this method of communication).
"And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there." (Genesis 11:2)
<2>Humans found the best parts of the earth to live on. Some of them journeyed toward the west of the original land they were in after the flood.
"And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them throughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for morter." (Genesis 11:3)
<3>The human started to use his intelligence for replacing the resources of nature with his own discoveries.
"And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth." (Genesis 11:4)
<4>The human started to use his intelligence for gaining fame, name, and power, instead of using it to progress to perfection. By becoming involved in a luxurious life and thinking about their name and fame, they forgot that this intellect was given to them to further their progress to perfection. It was not given for gaining name, fame, or material wealth. This striving to gain these things is called the "great Babylon."
<5>Also they did not want to be scattered all over the world ("lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth") so they planned on building a tower in order to stay together. However, The Plan of God is that man should be scattered not only all over the earth, but all over the universe.
"And the Lord came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded." (Genesis 11:5)
<6>God was observing what they were doing.
"And the Lord said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do:and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do." (Genesis 11:6)
<7>With the good communication through having telepathic abilities, being united, and having the use of their intellect, men started again to manipulate nature towards their own selfish desires and for their lower natures. As had been seen before, this would again further the fall of man and destroy him.
<8>The purpose of man is to reach Pure Consciousness. Directing the intellect toward the satisfaction of the lower self is against the Laws of nature and will bring disaster to man, nature, and his society. God does not mind that man gains all the knowledge in the universe. Yet He will stop him if he starts to misuse it for his own selfish ends.
"Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another's speech." (Genesis 11:7)
<9>Therefore, another evolutionary process became necessary, which was to take the telepathic ability away from men so they would have many different languages and would not be able to communicate properly with each other. <10>With being different races, different nations, and different languages, and with having intelligence instead of direct power over the forces of nature, men now could be prevented from self-destruction through directing their powers and intelligence toward their lower selves.
<11>The human should have gone through a great struggle during the last six thousand years of history until he is able to come to the point that he has reached now:to understand that the only way to salvation is to follow the Universal Laws and Daharmas which have been set up by God (come to his higher nature). <12>Only then can he live happily, gain his powers back, and understand the real truth behind this universe.
"So the Lord scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth:and they left off to build the city." (Genesis 11:8)
<13>Only with this event were they prevented from self-destruction. Also, that is one of the desires of the Lord God -- to see man spread all over the earth and understand the Laws governing the earth. <14> Not only does He desire to see man understand the earth and spread over it, but also He desires to see man understand the Laws governing space and other planets in order to spread all over the universe!
<15>This event is the same as that of verse 25 in chapter 10, when God divided the earth. Both of them describe the same event which forced the inhabitants (the new generation) to leave and be scattered all over the earth.
"Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the Lord did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the Lord scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth." (Genesis 11:9)
<16>Babel refers to idle talk. When a person talks nonsense, we say he is "babbling" instead of communicating. This prevented them from building the city and making a name for themselves.
<17.We are still in this stage and most of what we do and say in the individual, societal, or even international level, is only "babbling." The real communication has been lost and life has become "Babel-like." <18>That is why it is so necessary for man to understand the lessons given by history and the evolutionary process, which is to show that the only way to happiness is to "follow the Laws, try to become Pure Consciousness, and help others to be(come) the same."
<19>By understanding this lesson, then humans should create a society with one language (for best communication, and of course very soon many people will gain their telepathic abilities to communicate as before, beside other powers), one race (with intermarriage between races), <20>and one religion (with understanding the existence of one God and the Laws of the universe -- Eternal Divine Path).
<21>Then and only then will the human be able to establish the earth as one country and the universe as his home, God as his Father and nature (creative force) as his Mother, the Universal Laws as his ideals, and the attainment of Pure Consciousness for himself and for others as his goals. <22> That is what the Bible teaches and what all the Messengers and Prophets came to tell humans.
