racing events right back to ancient Egypt then, the question arises: Is there any substance to the concept that the power of the mind or thought as a magical tool (imagination) can invoke or materialize individual power? (god-self)
Firstly, as far as mental superiority is concerned, consider how the Great Pyramids and Sphinx were constructed and their precise astronomical/astrological alignments definite markers in time against the backdrop of the universe. A giant cosmic clock, created by a higher form of intelligence whose legacy was inherited by the ancient Egyptians ... and even used by the earliest recorded dynasties as a means of resurrecting deceased kings and transporting them (spiritually) into the cosmos for all eternity (eternal life after death). This is most vividly shown through the mythology of Osiris, Isis and Horus ... more cosmic truth concealed in full view the best place to hide anything. It was ultimately this truth of resurrection (or reincarnation as spiritual beings) that Moses once sought to obtain and which finally became embroidered around the life and resurrection of Jesus the "Christ" or anointed one .... "Messiah" in Hebrew ... from the ancient Egyptian word "Messah"... when pharaohs anointed themselves with the blood of the Nile Crocodile to endow themselves with its awesome power and to elicit fearful respect a state of mind then adopted by his subjects. Imagine that!
Secondly, one has only to look around at the plethora of modern day literature on the subject of mind over matter .....From The Power of Positive Thinking ...every conceivable title in this field of personal exploration and fulfillment covers the shelves of bookstores and libraries. More recently there has been a spiritual revival (Some call it the New Age Movement) that has, as its basis, personal responsibility, self-awareness and spiritual upliftment as its core foundation. "Know thyself"; "Physician, heal thyself"; "To thine own self be true". These are echoes from the past now reaching those "who have ears to hear".
God, as an omnipotent and omnipresent Supreme Being, could never require our presumptuous mortal protection or intervention. We humans, on the other hand, are left at the mercy of our own man-made superstitions and fears until eventually we may see the light and choose more wisely. "In the face of ignorance, even the gods are helpless".
Bruce Alexander Kilgour, 2001
Extract from William Kingsland, Professor of Astronomy and Theosophist:
"The study of Christian origins is a very large and controversial question ... but it is quite evident that the literalisation of these narratives (Gospels etc.) was due to the fact that those who ultimately obtained the ascendancy in the Church Councils, and were the framers of the Creeds which have been current for so many centuries, were not those who were instructed in the Gnosis. They were in fact miserably ignorant, not merely of that Gnosis, which lies at the heart of all the allegories, myths and fables in the Christian, as in other ancient and pre-Christian Scriptures, but also of geographical, astronomical and anthropological facts well known to other peoples for thousands of years prior to the Christian Era, and which when known as they were to the initiated Church Fathers, who were, however, declared to be heretics by these same creed-makers entirely alter the whole structure of the traditional Creeds."
Extract from The Book of Knowledge
man whispered, "God, speak to me"...
"Christians" pl. = "Little Christs"
a derogatory term applied by the Romans to the early followers of the new
religion when they were seen as politically troublesome and therefore persecuted
