Matthew 25 King James Version (KJV)
Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.
2 And five of them were wise, and five were foolish.
3 They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them:
4 But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.
5 While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.
6 And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.
7 Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.
8 And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out.
9 But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.
10 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.
11 Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us.
12 But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not.
What we need to do first is find out more about the Kingdom of Heaven or the Kingdom of God and where it is according to the Bible. Well, that’s pretty simple if we look to what Jesus said in that regard in Luke 17-21 “Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.”
Jesus just said that the Kingdom of God is within you. Not on some planet somewhere or “up there.” What it’s like inside of you. What your mind is like and how it operates. And he says it’s like ten virgins. So within your mind are the ten virgins, and what do they represent? They represent the negative and positive aspects of the five senses, meaning that it’s the duality within us all, good and evil, higher and lower, etc. The number ‘5’ in mysticism is a representation of the five senses (sight, taste, touch, smell and hearing). That’s what it means.
You don’t even remember all the dreams you had last night but dream you did. You went all over the place and did and experienced unbelievable things, and the five senses were a part of that, too. So it doesn’t make any difference whether you believe it or not. You were there and had dreams all night long and you don’t even remember being there but you were there.
What are we all doing here? We’re all working our way back up the pyramid and we’ll all meet at the top once we get it right, and each one of us has an opportunity in life to climb as many times as it takes to reach the top, but we have to be willing to have an open mind and question absolutely everything about this existence, even if it causes friction with family, friends, church, whatever, it doesn’t matter, you just have to commit to the process of finding out the truth no matter the consequences.
Some of you may scoff at the idea of karma, reincarnation or past lives, which I commented on above, but it’s in the Bible and Jesus answered the disciples when they brought it up; he didn’t say it didn’t exist.
John 9 King James Version (KJV)
And as Jesus passed by, he saw a man which was blind from his birth.
2 And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind?
3 Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him.
How can a guy sin before he was born? And where did they get the idea that somebody could sin before they were born? If that person sinned before he was born, he must have had a previous life experience in which he could have and that could have resulted in a negative aspect physically from karma, couldn’t it? And the disciples understood that. Jesus didn’t say ‘hey, you’re crazy.’ He just said that what they thought wasn’t the case.
Okay, back to these ten virgins.
So the Kingdom is likened unto ten virgins, which is interesting because if we take a quick look at the teachings of Shakyamuni Buddha, we see that he taught that there are ten aspects, ten worlds of the human mind, and we see them represented here in this same passage. Five higher and five lower. Heaven and Hell exist in two of those words as well, but still only as being states of mind and not actual destinations of the soul.
Astrologically speaking, it’s the planet Uranus moving to the meetup with the constellation Aquarius, and at that point, there will be a symbolic wedding and the bride is Gaia, the Earth, and Uranus is coming to claim the bride and that’s called the New Age, and it’s actually happening right now in the sky over your head. A new age is dawning which will be a metaphorical “Heaven on Earth.” Why is that? The Greek word for heaven is Ouranos, which is the planet Uranus, and all of this is zodiacal mythology and predates the Bible by thousands of years. My post on Aquarius sums this up on a deeper level.
11 And ye shall say unto the goodman of the house, The Master saith unto thee, Where is the guestchamber, where I shall eat the passover with my disciples?
12 And he shall shew you a large upper room furnished: there make ready.
In mysticism, city means “consciousness.” The man bearing a pitcher of water is the constellation Aquarius. And you are to meet him in the upper room of the house, which is the mind. Jesus is telling you to go within yourself now because this is happening now in the sky above.
We’ve identified the bridegroom astrologically. Now let’s identify the bridegroom biblically.
2 Corinthians 11-2 King James Version (KJV)2 For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ.
We have the virgin, and now we have the bridegroom, who is Christ. It does not mean Jesus, it means the Christ that is within you, Christ consciousness. Krishna was the Christ as well. Christ is within you. There’s no man inside of you your body, but a higher state of mind called “Christ.”
It has nothing to do with sex at this point. It has to do with the virginity of the mind. Only in the virgin-state can the Christ be born and it is the virginity of your mind when you reach nirvana when you have separated from the thoughts of the lower, you are no longer tainted or touched by that which is the carnal mind. You are a “virgin.”
Something has to be built or created inside of your brain that uses the name “Christ,” and there has to be something in there called the “Father.”
When Jesus said “it is not me who does it, it’s the Father within me” he was talking about the higher mind. In other words, there was something in him that did this. God has created in you a higher mind and it is called spiritually the “Father.” That’s the part of God in you. That is the Father, and when you activate it, the Father is alive within you, which means the higher mind is alive within you, and you cannot activate it unless you follow the instructions of Krishna, Buddha and Jesus. Jesus said, “no one can come to the Father but by me.” He’s saying that if you don’t do what I tell you to do, you’ll never find him. Practice what these “god-men” taught (“If thine eye be single, your body will be filled with light” “the kingdom of God is within you” “seek first the kingdom of God”) and you’ll find the Father within yourself during meditation.
Psalm 132-17 kjv “there will I make the Horn of David to bud I have ordained a lamp for my anointed.”
There’s your positive lamp. Do you see that that’s the lamp you want to take? And you can only take this through meditation. You can only take this when you’re willing to put down everything that you’ve ever used to try to light your way and go deep within yourself for that lamp which is the precious, eternal, godly lamp, that holy place within you.
“The light of the righteous rejoices but the lamp of the wicked shall be put out.”
How do you put out the lower lamp? How do you turn off that lower inferior light? Jesus said it in three words, “take no thought.” Meditation, the answer is really that simple.
The bridegroom we’re talking about is the Sun in the sky and the pineal gland of your brain. Why is this important? Look what the Bible says about this.
5 Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race.
When you meditate, the energy rises up the spinal column and impacts the pineal gland and releases a cascade of healing effects in the body. “If thine eye be single, your body will be filled with light.” The single eye is the pineal gland, and God is light, according to the Bible. Now that you know the truth, doesn’t that make more sense?
If you’ve read the Old Testament, you’ve heard about burnt offerings, right?
Astrologically speaking, a burnt offering happens every Spring. Every Spring, the Sun in the sky, the bridegroom, consumes Aries, the Ram or Lamb, and when the fire consumes the ram or lamb, the annual burnt offering has occurred in the sky. It has nothing to do with actually burning an animal. Do you see how religion turned this into such a blasphemous thing?
When spring comes, everything which has been dormant comes back to life. All that has been “dead” will burst forth in color, but it can’t happen unless there’s the burnt offering in the sky. Aries has to be consumed.
The sign Aries is associated with the head, primarily the pineal gland, the third eye, and when you allow that Sun within you to raise itself up and consume the Ram or pineal gland, Spring comes to your life, and you have performed a burnt offering inside of yourself. That’s why you have a part of your body called the “Solar Plexus,” because the nerves branch out like the rays of the Sun.
We also see in Matthew that there is oil in the lamps. What is the oil? The lamp oil is the Christ essence in your body, which is called “Chrism,” which means Christ. The ancients called it the Sacred Secretion or Raising the Chrism. This is the true meaning of anointing a person’s head with oil. It has nothing to do with actual oil. Another “gift” from religion.
The ancients said the Claustrum is the place where God’s gifts come from, the higher place, and so they called it the Holy Claustrum, and then it became the Saint Claustrum, and then it became Saint Claus, and then it became, you guessed it, Santa Claus. Not St. Nick or Nicholas. That was the Roman Catholic Church trying to take ownership of yet another piece of ancient wisdom and call it their own. But instead of understanding this gift of life, we put a guy in a red suit, gave him a bag of toys and sent him down a chimney. We had no idea whatsoever what these ancient people were telling us and teaching us of the claustrum and the gift of life.
When that Chrism spills out in abundance without discipline, there is no oil to light the lamp. If you’re going to meditate, abstain from intercourse before doing so and you will have oil in the lamp to light it. I’m not saying to be celibate, just intelligent.
Okay, moving on.
“While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.”
The human element in all of us will cause us to sleep. It doesn’t make any difference what religion you are. If you meditate, there are times when you’re going to stop doing this. You’re going to be too busy, you’re gonna have too much to do and you’re not going to be able to do this and you’re gonna fall asleep.
“And at midnight, there was a cry made behold the bridegroom comes go out and meet him.”
When did it happen? There is a reason that it happened at midnight. Because midnight is the number 12, which is ‘perfection’ in mysticism. This is the way the ancients came up with the number of perfection. You take the fourfold nature, the number 4, of yourself: physical, intellectual, spiritual and emotional. After that, you take the number 3, which is “new life” or “renewal” and multiply them together to get the number of perfection, which is 12.
What this is saying to you is that when you go deep within yourself in meditation, you come to the number 12, you come to the midnight hour, you are perfect, you are where you are supposed to be, you have achieved perfection. The bridegroom is there, your lamp has oil in it and it’s lit.
Psalm 119:62 King James Version (KJV)
62 At midnight I will rise to give thanks unto thee because of thy righteous judgments.
Jesus is saying that He is the bridegroom and you’re the bride. I’ve got to intercourse with you. I’ve got to join with you, but you’ve got to be willing to take me up into your chamber and expose yourself to me without any worldly attachments so that I can join with you and I will place inside of you the incorruptible seed, but first, you’ve got to become a virgin, and when you become a virgin, then the bridegroom will come into your chamber and you will consummate the marriage of the Lamb and I will join with you and I’ll place that incorruptible seed within you and you will become spiritually pregnant and you will give birth to the Christ within.
