Anatomy of the Body of God by Charles Stansfeld Jones (Frater Achad)

By Charles Stansfeld Jones (Frater Achad)

A variety from the Preface:
Although the name of this [book] could appear, to a couple who've no longer learn its contents, to be either presumptuous and unwarrantable, it really is was hoping that those will reserve their judgment till they've got given due cognizance and attention to the examine of such a big subject.
We live in unusual instances. Civilization turns out swiftly to be breaking apart, whereas but a few internal urge is at paintings in the direction of a greater and extra balanced development in may possibly departments of life.
One of the result of the good conflict has been to show the minds of many folks from many of the narrower conceptions of existence into wider channels. A spirit of enquiry has turn into obvious at the a part of those that had formerly been content material to simply accept statements in regard to life's deeper concerns on mere trust or rumour. Many new events have arisen lower than the assistance of people that have acquired a minimum of a partial glimpse of man's wider history, and there was a corresponding falling clear of what could be termed the orthodox or establishment of items within the church buildings and in different places. many nations were making experiments of varied varieties, such a lot of which, in spite of the fact that, being the result of "reform pursuits" of the narrowest type, are fast proving themselves to be unsatisfactory and insufficient. at this time, amid some of these symptoms, there turns out to were no whole resolution in sight, and, so it might probably look, little or no comprehension, even at the a part of those people who are truthfully doing their most sensible less than the conditions, of the underlying ideas concerned. those that should still fairly be capable of aid, are not able to take action successfully for a similar reason.
It could seem a miles cry from the current global- stipulations of a social and political nature to the Holy Qabalah, yet support occasionally comes from really unforeseen sources.
The Jews, and the Jewish challenge, symbolize vitally important features of the trouble and its resolution. an exceptional share of the wealth of the realm is this day within the arms of the Jews, but as a country they've got no position. because the "chosen humans" they have been an immense country, however the rejection of the instructor in who they anticipated to discover their Messiah, is generally thought of to were the reason for their turning into wanderers upon the face of the Earth. but the note "Jew" is derived from IU, the Ever-Coming Son, the Horus of the earliest Egyptian traditions, whose effect isn't really limited to the Christian period yet extends to every age, and of Whom all really common God-Men, corresponding to Jesus, were, and are, the representatives upon earth.
But the Jews have ignored the learn in their personal "Chokmah Nestorah," or mystery knowledge culture, as transmitted within the Holy Qabalah, hence wasting sight in their actual Will as a kingdom and their crucial objective within the nice artistic Plan. It has remained for the Gentile to rediscover a number of the deeper mysteries of this historic knowledge, and those are came across to be an analogous in essence as these of Catholicism, Freemasonry, Pythagorean Philosophy, Hermeticism, etc; in reality there has consistently been a common culture which while identified has led the international locations to the peak of civilization, and while misplaced has heralded their decline and downfall.
The current world-crisis and breaking apart of civilization is because of the need of a normal "clean-up" preparatory to a much broader and grander belief being offered to humanity than has been attainable for lots of hundreds of thousands of years. All pondering humans notice that issues are in a serious , and all may be ready to understand any moderate chance of acquiring an answer so that it will be of everlasting, instead of of transitority value.
Things can't be positioned correct with out attempt, and the query arises: "In what path is attempt so much necessary?"

Example text

The dreaming mind creates not only the scenery and people in the dream but also a sense of personal subjectivity. There is no real person or self there, as the self is just a projection of the mind. Likewise the person you think you are in waking life is also a projection of mind and is not real, no more than Santa Claus or the Easter Bunny. Both of these fictional characters take on great life in the minds of children. But no matter how deeply and sincerely a child believes in Santa Claus, it will never make this fictional character real.

We can also notice that quality of changeless observing when regard­ ing thoughts of the future. Awareness is always in this current moment; there is no other option. ” Within our embodied existence, we have five senses. What we don’t recognize is the nature of those five senses. 22 The N a tu ra l Bliss o f Being The experience of the five senses is always free from our con­ ditioning, thoughts, and stories. Direct perceptual experience, which always precedes our thoughts and labeling regarding those perceptions, is itself pure and innocent of description.

As the Buddha pointed out correctly two thousand five hun­ dred years ago, what we are is the result of our thoughts. Some have said we are the result of our experiences, but I would add that we are the result of what we think about our experiences. So that means that how we are feeling, our current emotional state, is dictated by our thoughts. If that’s true, then we need to find this out for ourselves. The best way to do that is to examine the nature of our thoughts. So that we are able to remain “on the same page” regarding the topic of thoughts, I suggest that we engage in the brief exercises that follow.
