THE HOLIEST THE HOLIEST BOOK, HOLIEST THREE
"John to the seven churches which are in Asia: Grace be unto you, and peace, from him which is, and which was, and which is to come; and from the seven Spirits which are before his throne;" (Rev. 1:4)
<1>Why are the seven churches in Asia? It is because all the great Prophets of the seven churches have come from there. <2>At the same time, the mystery of the seven energy centers of the body (chakras) was revealed to humanity in this region (Asia), through the Far East Philosophies (Vedas, etc.).
<3>What are those seven spirits? They are the seven truths that lead a man to become a son of God. <4>They are the seven spheres of the universe. As the body of the man has seven chakras, also the universe has seven spheres which are called "Lokas."
<5>"Cloud" means confusion. He comes whenever confusion comes to humanity. "When righteousness is weak and faints, and unrighteousness exults in pride [confusion], then my Soul arises on earth" (Bhagavad-Gita 4:7). <6>"Every eye shall see him" means that those who have their eyes (third eyes) opened will see him. "They also which pierced him" means that those who pierced him will be reincarnated also and see his glory.
<7>Also when it is said he will come from the sky, the sky is the same as heaven, and heaven means Pure Consciousness. So he will come from Pure Consciousness to help those who need him. He comes as an Avatar.
"I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending,..." (Rev. 1:8)
"I was in the Spirit on the Lord's day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet." (Rev. 1:10)
<9>"I was in the Spirit" means "I was in a trance." The "voice of a trumpet" is the sound of many waterfalls (OM ) which can be heard in higher consciousness.
"...seven golden candlesticks;" (Rev. 1:12)
<10>The seven golden candlesticks are the seven chakras. When a human masters the chakras, they become a golden light for his guidance. <11>At the same time, the seven candlesticks represent the Light for each religion in The Greatest Sign, as do the seven churches, each church for one religion.
"...one like unto the Son of man,..." (Rev. 1:13)
<12>John was not sure that the being he saw was the Son of man, or Christ. He could have been anyone. That means each person has the potential to reach Christhood (Pure Consciousness). In fact, it was John's own Soul.
"And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword:..." (Rev. 1:16)
<13>The seven stars are the seven truths that have been revealed to humanity through Christ. We can say that each star refers to the Prophet of each seal, which symbolically represents each religion or truth in The Greatest Sign.
<14>"A sharp twoedged sword" is the truth which comes out of the mouth of a realized Soul (in Christ Consciousness) or from the mouth of Christ. This sword cuts through superstitions and ignorance, dispels the darkness, and brings light and truth to humanity.
"And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last:" (Rev. 1:17)
<15>What John really had seen was his own spirit of truth which is within all humans. The person who begins spiritual practices becomes fearful of meditating because seeing the truth within is hard. That is why when he saw who he was, "one like unto the Son of man" (which is his own Soul), he was afraid and "fell at his feet as dead."
<16>However, the Soul is kind and humble. That is why he (the Soul) "laid his right hand upon" John and comforted him by saying, "Fear not: I am the first and the last," which means, "I will be with you in your progress from the very beginning to the end."
<19>"And have the keys of hell and of death" means, "I have mastered the power of the tama guna, which brings man to hell and death (ignorance). I have the truth which can release you from this hell and death."
"Write the things which thou hast seen, and the things which are, and the things which shall be hereafter;" (Rev. 1:19)
<20>This verse means, "Write the things which have happened, are happening, and will happen." Therefore, The Revelation is a brief explanation of the Plan of the Lord God that will guide humans from ignorance to the state of Pure Consciousness (full realization of the reality behind this universe). It is an explanation of what happened in the beginning of the formation of the new race (generation) after Noah, and how the Lord God will bring the human to the realization that he should only utilize this body and all the gifts related to this body for reaching Pure Consciousness.
<21>This brief and most important book of the Bible (The Revelation) shows how following the false ego, being under the influence of the power of the tama guna, and being attracted to the power of Maya will lead the human to destruction and death (ignorance).
<22>We can say that this book is a miniature Bible. It reveals the real purpose of creation and shows how all things have happened so far in order to bring humanity to this point where everything seems so confusing. By understanding The Revelation and the truth underlying The Greatest Sign and history, we can see that really there is no confusion left. Only then can we realize the compassion and mercy of our Lord God, be able to appreciate all things in this universe, and find our way to the goal (Pure Consciousness, Christ Consciousness, God, etc.).Next
