<1>"And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne": The right hand is always considered to be positive and more spiritual than the left in the body. Or the right hand can symbolize the side that guides man to his higher nature.
<2>"A book written within and on the backside": "A book" refers to the words of God which will be revealed to the human through His Prophets. These words are the truths which underlie all the religions and their Scriptures. <3>"Written within" refers to the real meaning of the Scriptures which cannot be seen and realized by naked, unspiritual eyes, and "on the backside" is what most people read and take literally. They think that what they see is what it means.
<4>"Sealed with seven seals" means that the book (the words of God) is sealed. It reveals the mysteries of God and His Plan which will be unknown until "...the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished,..." (Rev. 10:7). These mysteries, with the meanings of the seals, are revealed in The Greatest Sign.
<5>The verse means that the way is open for all to reach that state where they will be able to open the seals. The opening of the seals was offered to all.
<6>At this point, God had the truth and had it ready to be known by man. But in this state, no one had reached Pure Consciousness to understand it. It was before the beginning of creation, even earlier than when the First Begotten Son of God had reached Pure Consciousness.
<7>John (the Soul of John) was very sad because he saw that no one was going to open the book. The book is going to be filed away and no human will know what is in it. Humans will not understand how to reach Pure Consciousness. They will not have any example to follow or to show them how to reach there. That is why John was so sad about seeing this vision.
<9>Suddenly he saw that the Lamb has overcome all the elders and is in the midst of the four beasts. He has overcome all the power of the senses, the tama guna, the objects of the senses, the elements, and everything in the universe. He has reached Pure Consciousness. <10>So he is in the midst of the four beasts. He has reached a place where he is beyond The Word in Pure Consciousness.
<11>"And in the midst of the elders": Elders are all around him, and he has been slain (symbol of crucifixion of the false ego) to reach higher consciousness. <12>Being slain and going to the cross is a symbol of overcoming the false ego (lower nature) and all the pitfalls of the spiritual progress described in chapters 3 and 4, by following the Eternal Divine Path.
<13>He has seven eyes, "which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth." He has overcome the seven spirits of the self, which symbolize the seven chakras or seven states of progress, and he has come to Pure Consciousness. <14>And these seven spirits have been "sent forth into all the earth," or each person has these seven spirits in himself.
<15>When he took the book from the hand of the One who sat on the throne, all the universe (four beasts and twenty-four Elders) became joyful. Now he could reveal to humanity the knowledge of the truth behind this universe and The Plan of God. All humans would know exactly what The Plan of God was, is, and will be, and why. It will be known what the purpose of life is, and why He created the universe and went through all this work to bring other consciousnesses to higher consciousness.
<16>Also, all the beauty of this universe is for the Saints, or Elected Ones. They are the salt and light of the world. They are why God is joyful to help the universe to reach higher consciousness, because they are the ones who God is very pleased with and who will inherit His Kingdom. They are the ones for whom His creation is working. God is tirelessly guiding all of humanity and the whole universe to the higher consciousness. However, it is the Saints with whom God is very pleased.
<17>It is the Christs (sons of God) who, through their struggles, bring the truth to humanity and try to redeem them to God. They will be persecuted and slain in their endeavors but they will save many in every kindred, tongue, people, and nation. <18> It is through their struggles, "by thy blood," that humans have even reached the state of consciousness they are in now, and it will be through their struggles (blood) that eventually the whole universe will reach Pure Consciousness.
<19>It is the Saints and the Elected Ones who should become Kings and Priests and guide humanity to higher consciousness and eventually to Pure Consciousness. <20>Again and again it is stated that it is the Saints who are going to inherit the earth and become the real leaders and rulers of humanity. <21>These are the Paravipras who will understand The Greatest Sign and become dynamic spiritual people. They will bring the Kingdom Of Heaven On Earth, and then they will become Kings and Priests and "shall reign on the earth."
<22>The number of these Saints and people who reach higher consciousness is going to be very many: "ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands." So these people are going to reach higher consciousness and eventually Pure Consciousness.
<23>The one begotten from the dead, and the Lord, will help the whole universe to reach higher consciousness and eventually Pure Consciousness. <24>Not only God and Christ (Anointed Ones) will help the whole universe to reach higher consciousness and eventually Pure Consciousness, but also the Saints, the twenty-four Elders, and the four beasts all were helping, are helping, and will help humanity to understand the realities behind this universe, and to reach the goal.
<25>That is The Plan of God for the creation of this universe. He created the four beasts and the twenty-four Elders. <26>The Saints have reached higher consciousness, and Christ (the First Begotten Son of God) was the first who reached Pure Consciousness. <27>He became the spirit of the truth (Pure Consciousness), and with his saints he will help the whole universe and humanity to reach higher consciousness and eventually Pure Consciousness.
