The Mountain of God
by Miles Gentry ~
The struggle begins with Awakening. As we come to realize the Utility of this world, and why it is that we Are Here, we come to Realize that we Must Change. Individually, we are all screwed up (though most of us generally believe the lies of our own irrational minds, and live in a world of denial) and we must change that simple fact. The following work is for everyone and it is for free, but in truth, it is dedicated to those whom are able to receive it. To Know One’s Self is the ultimate challenge, and few are ready to Accept that challenge.
The Mountain of God, also known as Jacob’s Ladder, the 7 Rung ladder, the 7 Stepped Pyramid, or just simply The Mountain. These all symbolize the “stepped” process by which Psyche ascends through the seven gates of the underworld.
The diagram above (Appendix C – The Mountain) is an extraordinarily revealing map of this “ladder.” As a working tool to better comprehend these spiritual truths, the frame size of the document viewer is intentionally cropped to display only three (3) centers (spheres) of consciousness at once. This is a most important fundamental detail, that psyche resides within a Trinity of force/function (vehicles) at any given “stage” of growth. (A link is provided on the viewer to see the diagram full size in a new window). Furthermore, the role of this Trinity must be noted. We make manifest in this world through the Lowest of the three Vehicles and should be led by the Highest of the Three.
Scroll to the bottom three spheres (mental, emotional, and physical) and consider what you see. That is us, you and me, and most everyone else in the world. This is where we are and this is where our work is to be found. The world of Thinking, Feeling, and Action found within the Generative Center of consciousness.
Born of Flesh
As Psyche is born into material Existence, she experiences the world through a very limited set of undeveloped tools.
Adam is the Analytical Mind.
Eve is the Emotional Desire.
Satan is Physicality – 5 sense body consciousness.
In simple terms, the Mind/Adam (not prone to desire) is not tempted by Physicality/Satan. The Emotions/Eve (desirous of gratification) however, are tempted by Physical gratification. Emotions have a Strong influence over the Mind, thus Adam ate the Fruit offered by Eve. Here is the much confused “manage a trio” of Biblical fame. Our “Conscious Being” is trapped within a perpetual feedback loop of mind, emotions, and 5 sense reality. This Is the Fall of Mankind.
Adam, the Analytical Mind – becomes Irrational because of the influence of Unreasonable Emotions (Eve), which are Tempted by the Serpent – the lusts of the flesh, which is desire for materiality and physical gratification. Hence the “Fall of Man” which is none other than the fall of Consciousness into the self centered existence known as Duality.
As it is, Psyche has Fallen All the way Down into Chaos – Elemental Matter. We Feel the world with our Physical Body (5 senses) – rather than Feel with our Emotional Body. We Think with our Emotional Body – rather than with our Minds. And we are most Active in our Mental Body, thus our three vehicles are mismanaged and therefore, we are easily Manipulated.
Our present society exemplifies this dysfunction, wherein our Physical Body/Function is driven by our Emotional Force, our Emotional Body/Function is driven by our Mental Force, and our Mental Body/Function is driven by our Physical Force. Thus our perpetual search for Physical Gratification to fulfill our Emotional Desires (The Scarlet Whore). The use of our Mental Function as an Active Force, replacing our Physical Body – ie. Industrial automation, robotics, remote-control and wireless technologies, Atomic energy! This is the Scientific Mind (The False Messiah) – always “promising” to “save us” and bring a “new tomorrow.” And lastly, our Mental Energy is focused through our Emotional Body (The False Prophet), causing all of the various hatreds, racism, segregation and especially all ignorance due to “superstitious” Religious beliefs. Once disillusioned with Religion altogether, The False Prophet will grasp for any promise of security and safety (to fill the Emotional Need not fulfilled by the religious system) thus latching onto to the promise of science and technology – “causing all to worship” the False Messiah (Scientific Mind) and receive his Mark (High-Tech Mind Control)!
The Trinity of Force and the Trinity of Function are misapplied, Causing Inability and Restriction of Growth. [ie., Seeking Physical Gratification to fulfill Emotional Desire.] Psyche has a very limited Sphere of Experience and Expression (as described by the circumference of the circle). Alignment of Force and Function enables Psyche to Experience and Express Life Naturally. Thinking with the Mind, Feeling with Emotion, and Taking Action with the Physical Body. Energies and Faculties in Synchronization enables a Greater Experience and Expression of Life.
We Must work All of this Out. Realign the Double Trinity (Star of David) of Force and Function within. We must relocate our centers of force within their appropriate Vehicles of Function. We have the necessary Tools but we are using them for the wrong operations. We are trying to paint with a screwdriver and drive a nail with a ruler, which as you know is not effective! It is for this very reason that we “cannot do anything” to change the state of the world – we are “powerless!” Realignment of these Principles precedes, and enables Progress. It is upon This Stone that you build your Temple – True Thinking, True Feeling, and True Action. This is the “Right” Triangle, the “cornerstone” rejected by “The Builders!”
The Female / Receptive – EMOTIONAL BODY – must be aligned with the Male / Active – MENTAL BODY. In this way the “Husband” seeks Gnosis and Re-Union with Divinity – and the “Wife” Desires nothing but the same. This union of Male and Female Energies Allows for Rebirth. As much as the Mind is Focused on the Goal (deep Will for), the Emotions must wantonly Accept (deep Desire to Receive) – A totally Unified Effort of the Sun and Moon. Acceptance is key and Love becomes the common ground – Truth the collective Goal. This Agreement works to tame the Beast – PHYSICAL BODY – and soon the Doubt of Instinct – FEAR – gives way to Courage, and the once burdensome animal becomes a Trusty Steed – A White Horse.
Born of Water
“For he shall be great in the sight of the Lord, and shall drink neither wine nor strong drink; and he shall be filled with the Holy Ghost, even from his mother’s womb.” – Luke 1:15
The first step in the Christian Mysteries, as described in the New Testament, is to be born of Water. This achievement is symbolized by John the Baptist. He represents the ascension of Psyche into the next sphere of consciousness, and a new Trinity of Force/Function. – Heart, Mind, Emotion. No longer led by the Flesh, John is led by the Spirit of Truth (Heart/Love/Truth) and he works on the Emotional plane – the Baptismal Waters.
These truths are explained in the Bible but they are hidden in symbol. For instance, we are told (Luke 1:20) that John’s father (Zacharias) was made “dumb” and unable to “speak.” In addition and even more revealing, we are told that the infant John – while only eight days old – was able to speak by the power of the Holy Spirit (Luke 1:64). If we refer to the diagram to the right (The Mountain of God b) we see that the Mind has been reduced in stature, while the Holy Spirit takes the keystone position. The father/mind is made dumb and mute (no longer active) as the Spirit becomes the Voice of Reason. He is said to be the forerunner – to prepare the way for he who is to come. Having purified the Emotional Waters and transcended Mind to Achieve Truth/Love, John epitomizes this stage of growth with the keynote of Humility.
“I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire:” – Matt 3:11
Born of Fire
Following the Biblical schematic for salvation, the next step of ascension is best symbolized by Moses. “…And she called his name Moses: and she said, Because I drew him out of the water.” – Exodus 2:10
That Moses was lifted out of the water signifies the growth of Psyche out of the Emotional center of consciousness. At this stage, we are Born of the Fire and Led by the Word. As John worked with the Water, Moses worked with the Fire (“And he took the calf which they had made, and burnt it in the fire.” – Exodus 32:20). As John was led by the Spirit, Moses was led by the Word (“Then the LORD said unto Moses…” – Exodus 6:1). The entire Old Testament narrative of Moses and his exploits is filled with this imagery. Moses was all about the “Burnt Offering,” which is none other than working with the Fire. The other stand out feature of his story is that he listened to and obeyed the Voice of the Lord – the Word. Moses represents the stage of growth termed the Son of man.
“And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up:” – John 3:14
Once understood, the symbolism of the Bible proves to be none other than a description of the process by which to save our souls. This is the process of Rebirth. Moses occupies the Center Sphere of consciousness, with his highest vehicle (Word) from the Spiritual Center and his lowest vehicle (Mind) from the Generative Center. Notice in the diagram that the trinity of think, feel, and act are inverted at this stage of growth. For Moses, the Mind (thinking) was the lowest Vehicle while the Word (action) was the highest, both centered around the Heart (feeling). In common man, thinking is the highest vehicle while action is the lowest, and both are centered around Emotions (feeling).
Born of Spirit
“Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.” – Matthew 1:23
Continuing on, the next step in the ascension process is perhaps the most misunderstood of all Biblical metaphors. Before I give any explanation, you may be able to glean the hidden truth for yourselves, simply by contemplating the diagram to the right (The Mountain of God d).
Consider the characters involved and the “roles” of each according to the Biblical story. We have the Virgin Mother, the Holy Spirit, and the Son. Notice there is no Father in this Trinity!! To realize the significance of this Trinity of Force/Function, is to rent the veil of the greatest mystery of the Christian tradition – The Immaculate Conception.
This step of the ascension process is represented by the Master Jesus. This is the Son of God, born of Spirit, free of the Mind, and led by Higher Intuition. At this state of consciousness, completely free of the Generative Center, Psyche has no Mind – no Earthly Father. So it is in the Christian Mysteries that the Son of God was born to a Virgin Mother.
“For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother.” – Matthew 12:50
The Christened Jesus declares to “speak” nothing of Himself, but only from his Father in Heaven. Likewise, he does nothing other than the Will of His Father in Heaven. He is the Ascended Man – with Psyche residing comfortably in the Spiritual Center of consciousness, and having a purified Trinity of Force/Function as detailed in the diagram to the right (The Mountain of God e). Thinking, Feeling, and Acting on the Highest level – completely free of elemental corruption as symbolized by the Crucifixion of the Flesh.
