WEDDING OF CANA AND THE DEEPER STORY
Within the pages of the Bible's New Testament, we find the story of the Virgin Birth of Jesus. This is an allegory and parallel of the world, and it's virgin birth from space. This shares the same starting point as all scriptural creators. Noah, Jacob, David, and now Jesus. This represents the very beginning of planetary substance.
In the story of turning water into wine, at the marriage in Cana, and it is written that Jesus' Mother Mary was at this celebration. So, on a deeper level, we must ask what is this third day? Most Theologians can't tell us because they simply do not know what this story means at the base of it's myth. This is the third day of creation, the Mother aspect that was there at the beginning. This marriage at Cana, represents the union of this event, and the idea from which all that is, came to be. It is here that the "son" makes fruitful the Mother. This is "involution." The geographic choice of Cana, is also representative of the OT Canaan, where yet another personification of the "Creator," Abraham got married and begat the world of the ancient Hebrews.
Notice that both Jesus and his 12 disciples were called to the wedding. This is representative of the Creator and the 12 Creative Forces. When they wanted wine, Mary (Mother) said to Jesus "they have no wine." Jesus replies with "Woman, what have I to do with thee? Mine hour is not yet come." And there were set there, SIX waterpots of stone. Jesus told them to fill the waterpots with water, which they did. This translates to about 60 gallons. A bit overboard for a wedding, no?
So then, why SIX waterpots? Because the deeper story is that there are six involuntary planes which Jesus, like Aquarius, fills with what is everywhere called WATERS. Those SAME waters in the Genesis story, represent the Spirit moving on the waters that turned them into matter. The WINE, is the same wine that Noah, made, drank, and got drunk on ... namely ... the wine of Life.
Back to the wedding. When the Ruler of the feast had tasted the water(s) that was made wine, and knew not from where it came, the Governor of the feast called the Bridegroom. And he said "every man at the beginning seth forth good wine, and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse, but thou hast kept the good wine until now." There is a powerful hidden message contained within this statement that the best part of Creation is the last part, Evolution. This is the difference between the Jesus (man) and the Christ (Spiritual).
There is yet another lesson to glean from this wedding feast scenario. Remember the lines "Woman, what have I to do with thee?" and "who is my Mother and who are my brethren?" How about this one: "If any man come to me and hate not his father, and Mother, and wife, and brothers and sisters, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple." This is a very difficult dilemma for a church system that considers the Bible to be literal and historic rather than allegory and metaphor. The church even revised later editions so as to soften the harshness of the statement. What we have here, is an example of the consequence of blindly accepting falsehood. In this case, a human Mother and a human Father. This is a hint of the Divine nature of the Christ. Surely no mythological Saviour figure could have human parents. We see even in the Superman Story that his real parents were from another place, and that his earth parents found him and raised him.
To millions of Christians, this Jesus the Christ came to show them them "the Way, the Truth, and the Life" ... a design for which to live your life, and yet ... they prefer to worship this myth, rather than learn the Inner Mysteries that have been taught to the initiated for centuries. The Old Testament Joshua, is the New Testament Jesus. Even the names are the same. In Hebrew, Joshua is Yehushua and in Greek it is Iesous (or Jesus in later translations). The names, locations, and people have all been revised but it is the same Saviour Myth. Even Moses followed the same pattern. Moses led his people for 40 years through the desert, Jesus spent 40 days in the wilderness, and for Noah it rained for 40 days and 40 nights. The ancient Hebrews developed their belief system, then revised it under Assyrian rule and Babylonian rule being sure to include the ancient myths of Egypt, Greece, Persia, and beyond to build an identity and a religious/law system for their people.
Jesus, and all the world's Saviour figures are allegory and myth. All with the original intent of using Astrotheology, Cosmology, Zodiacal patterns, and spiritual archetypes to weave a tale of how we are to discover the Divine spark of the Creator/Source/God within all people. The Universe is one giant organism (The Mind - Nous - of God) and everything in it is part of it. Collectively, Life itself, at the very lowest cellular level and the consciousness contained within is what we call God/Absolute.
Just a thought ...
