SHUTTING DOWN THE SERPENT
When one enters into meditation, the serpent is shut down.
There is no thought.
At that point the emotions are raised to the higher form of spirit.
But the world of religion does not know that the lesson is for one to raise the emotional nature to the higher mind,
and they settle for 'I'm saved' and a snake talking to a woman and everyone loses.
Children are taught that the snaked talked with the woman.
They are never taught that they must raise their consciousness to
a higher understanding.
Don't be like Adam man living in the flesh
or the LOWER MIND
naked = without knowledge
NAKED in the books of antiquity meant =
WITHOUT THE TORAH or Divine Law
IF you are without DIVINE LAW
you are living for the animal nature
Fall of Adam
it is a summary of all the books of antiquity
The cunning, accursed serpent seduced me with the tree of desire and lusts, yeahe seduced the wife of my bosom.
Legends -Book of Raziel
Then I was defiled in the thought of my heart.
I recognized a sweet desire for your mother.
Apoc of Adam 8-9
OUR GOAL is to GET BACK TO GEN 2:25
Adam and his wife were both naked, and they felt no shame.
It is our desires that fuel our rounds of births and deaths.
Our desires continue through death and demand another body to act as the instrument for the fulfillment of our desires.
Thus spiritual wisdom is often referred to as the end of desires
Life in this world is suffering
Desire is the cause of suffering
Ending desires brings an end to suffering
The Eightfold Path brings and end to desires
From the time I ate of the tree of knowledge of good and evil, wisdom departed from me,
and I am a fool that knows nothing, an ignorant man that understands not.
Legends of the Jews - The Book of Raziel
Man is ARROGANT....
by turning away from the Law and commands of the DIVINE
The opponent rules our minds
the result is chaos
the ways of the adversary, fleshly desires and ignorance
don't inherit the kingdom
There is no righteousness
without the LAWS
only ignorance, worldly desires = shame
The punishment of Adam was tenfold; he lost his celestial clothing
God stripped it off him; in sorrow he was to earn his daily bread; the food he ate was to be turned from good into bad; his children were to wander from land to land; his body to sweat; he was to have an evil inclination; in death his body was to be a prey of the worms; animals were to have power over him, in that they could slay him; his days were to be few and full of trouble; in the end he was to render account of all his doings on earth.
Legends of the Jews - The Punishment: 87
I knew at once that I was stripped of the righteousness in which
I had been clothed.
Legends of the Jews - The sickness of Adam
At that very moment my eyes were opened and I knew that
I was naked of the righteousness with which I had been clothed.
Life of Adam and Eve -20
But after the fall of Eve, Satan, in guise of the serpent approached her and the fruit of their union was Cain, the ancestor of all the impious generations that were
rebellious toward God, and rose up against Him.
Cain’s descent from Satan, who is the angel Samael, was reveled in his seraphic appearance.
At his birth, the exclamation was wrung from Eve, I have gotten a man through the angel of the Lord.
