David and Goliath’s battle rages on. Who wins is up to you…

I remember hearing this story as a child, awestruck at the bravery and courage that David displayed in taking on and defeating the imposing figure of Goliath with a single stone hurled from a slingshot.

The imagery from a literal perspective is the stuff of myth and legend, which is exactly where this story should be categorized as far as actual history is concerned. There isn’t any evidence that this happened outside of the Bible…none. There is a reason that, outside of the Bible, this story was not documented by any historian or any other source.

With the aid of modern archaeology, we now know that the historical King David of the Old Testament ruled over a tiny city-state in Judea, not the vast kingdom portrayed in the Bible. What appears to have happened is that the historical David has been mythicized and attached by the Biblical writers to a real-life empire that was ruled by King Jeroboam II from 788 to 747 BCE. King David’s “kingdom” has claimed to have been found over and over in the past and it seems like people are tired of the constant letdown that inevitably follows when it’s proven to be false. It isn’t there so let’s move on. Actual history makes more sense when not viewed through a theological lens.

Additionally, Moses Maimonides, the Jewish theologian and historian states:

“Every time you find in our books a tale, the reality of which seems impossible, a story which is repugnant to both reason and common sense, then be sure that the tale contains a profound allegory veiling a deeply mysterious truth; and the greater the absurdity of the letter, the deeper the wisdom of the spirit.”

Okay, now that we have hopefully moved away from the historical version of this story, how do we progress with our interpretation? Reading it literally doesn’t make any sense, especially when the Bible itself tells you not to do that.

2 Corinthians 3-6

Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life.

And

1 Corinthians 2-14

14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.

Little David taking down a nine-foot giant with a tiny stone slung from a sling? Um, no, I’m not buying that. I’m not saying it’s not possible, just highly unlikely given the evidence. The question that really needs to be answered is not “Did it happen?” but instead “Does it happen?” That will make more sense as we dive deeper.

Once again, and I dislike repeating this beating-a-dead-horse perspective but it needs to be covered if it’s your first time hearing this information; the Bible is not a history book, it’s a book of profound symbolism, allegory, parable, and Astrotheology that is not to be taken at face value. The literal interpretation was meant for those considered profane and outside of the mystery of the text. The Bible, as well as many other religious texts, contains deep spiritual truths that can only be uncovered if you understand the symbolism, the hidden code, what the words mean on a deeper spiritual level. “Christ be formed in you“, “wisdom is understanding the dark sayings“, etc. We want to be inside of the mystery, not outside. Do your own research into mystery schools and initiates to understand what I’m talking about.

By the way, what is a dark saying? It’s akin to me saying: “He let the cat out of the bag”. You and I both know that it has nothing to do with a cat or a bag, but that a secret was revealed before it was supposed to be. “Let’s go shoot the bull” is another fine example of a dark saying. Are we going to literally go shoot a bull? No, of course not. We are going to have a conversation. The Bible speaks in the same way if you learn to correct your mental conditioning, cultural expectations and traditions to learn the truth.

Most Christians are unaware that some early Church Fathers were against a literal interpretation of Scripture, that it needed to be spiritually interpreted or discerned, like St. Alexander Athanasius, 20th Bishop of Alexandria, who said:

“Should we understand sacred writ according to the letter, we should fall into the most enormous blasphemies.” Albert Pike, Morals and Dogma of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry (1871) p.266

Origin Adamantius, theologian and founder of the Christian School of Caesarea, had this contribution:

“The Scriptures were of little use to those who understood them literally, as they are written.” Higgins Anacalypsis II, Page 270

And to further cement the dubiousness of the early Church, Eusebius Pamphili, Bishop of Caesarea in 314 CE, said the following (parentheses are mine):

“It will sometimes be necessary to use falsehood (lie) for the benefit of those who need such a mode of treatment.” (Chp. 31, Book 12 of Prae Paratio Evangelica)

That last quote seems so relevant today with the current fundamental, evangelical movement. These people are happy with this mode of treatment and readily accept falsehood as truth over 2,000 years later. And that’s our current mess in all of it’s glory. God help us. These people need to be brave and question EVERYTHING to determine if it’s valid and true. Do your own research with published peer-reviewed scholars, without an agenda, as guides. The truth will reveal itself.

Time for some etymology!

First, let’s look at the word or name “Goliath”. Upon hearing this word, your mind, like most people’s, goes to a place of something immense, gigantic, giant-like, right? It doesn’t mean “giant” at all. When we look deeply at the root of this word, we actually come to the probable meaning of “conspicuous”, which means “obvious” or “standing out so as to be clearly visible”. Hmm, that fits in extremely well with the mental visual of the larger-than-life character of Goliath that David “fought”. I’ve said this before, but the meaning of the names of people and places in the Bible will always reveal a connection to the story being told. Goliath was definitely conspicuous, agreed?

How about the name “David”? The most accepted meaning is “beloved”, which comes from the noun “Dod”, “דוד” in Hebrew. David was certainly beloved by God, which is clearly reflected in the Old Testament stories about him. There’s that association again. The etymology always helps to reveal additional clues to the deeper meaning of the text. But what I find interesting is the name “Dod”. This name is actually associated with a Moabite and Phoenician sun-god called “Dod” or “Dodo” that was worshiped in ancient eastern Israel during David’s time. Is the myth of David linked to sun-god worship? That would not be out of the realm of possibility, especially with the seeming abundance of solar allegory in the Bible.

Interestingly enough, David is associated with the title of “Jewish sun-god“, which corresponds with the worship of the sun-god “Dod”, who was also known as “the beloved one“. Do you now see how all of this ties together? David means “beloved”, and the sun-god Dod was known as “the beloved one”. Sun-god worship that made the transition to a divine humanly manifestation on Earth in the form of myth. This all comes from the Old Testament, but it subsequently makes the transition to the New Testament in the supposed life of Jesus, the Son/Sun. His life parallels the Sun’s path through the twelve signs of the Zodiac, and it’s not hard to see the evidence if you know how to interpret the hidden code. The mystics that wrote the Bible, who were heavily influenced by the likes of Pythagoras and Plato, mystics of the highest order, have left you a “trail of bread crumbs” to follow. The question is, are you brave enough to leave fundamentalism, literalism, and the religious herd behind to follow them to the truth? I personally believe that Pythagoras and Plato are turning over in their graves because people are taking literally a mystical book that literally tells you not to take it literally.

Alright, let’s take a look at the actual passages in the Bible from spiritual, esoteric, and numerological perspectives and when doing so, let’s also see if the text gives us clues to a deeper meaning that is hidden in plain sight.

And when we do this, we will come across multiple references to the number “9”. The Biblical writers attached great importance to this number. Why? The answer to that question comes from ancient Egypt and the language known as Sanskrit, where the symbols that represented letters all had a numerical value. The code embedded is known in Hebrew Scripture as “gematria”, a Kabbalistic method of interpreting the Hebrew scriptures by computing the numerical value of words, based on those of their constituent letters.

Adam from the Old Testament Book of Genesis has his origins in the Egyptian creation story of Atum, the first man-god who self-created himself by mastubating. I’m not lying!

Male masturbation was an even more important image in ancient Egypt: when performed by a god it could be considered a creative or magical act: the god Atum was believed to have created the universe by masturbating to ejaculation.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_masturbation

“Atum was considered self-created, that is, he was able to reproduce himself by himself, thereby becoming father and mother to himself.” https://books.google.com/books?id=qb92DAAAQBAJ&pg=PA461&lpg=PA461&dq=did+atum+mastubate+and+create+himself&source=bl&ots=HLacxP7XtA&sig=ACfU3U1KohRW9Yl2CBSgbNz1EX5fUmqocA&hl=en&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwjHmc2l7e3pAhULMawKHV-6DSIQ6AEwAnoECAcQAQ#v=onepage&q=did%20atum%20mastubate%20and%20create%20himself&f=false

Ahem, anyway, the numerical value of the Sanskrit word for Atum/Adam (ऐडम in Sankrit) is “9”, which is symbolic of consciousness in mysticism, and is associated with the center of life, the center of all things. And it can be a higher or lower reference depending on the context of the myth. It’s why the disciples caught 153 fish and also why there are 144,000 saved in the Book of Revelation. The numbers add up to “9” for a reason.

1 Samuel 17 (King James Version)

And there went out a champion out of the camp of the Philistines, named Goliath, of Gath, whose height was six cubits and a span.

Our first clue is “six cubits.” A cubit is 18 inches. Multiply 6 x 18 to come to 108. Add up those digits to arrive at a single number, which is “9”. The next clue is “a span”. A span is 9 inches. So we add up our original numbers which are 108 and 9, which gives us 117. Add them up to once again arrive at the number “9”. So now we know Goliath was “nine feet nine inches tall”. It’s always nine and it repeats time and time again in the Bible. That’s the code left for you to decipher. Goliath is a lower representation of consciousness, the ego, the carnal mind.

Another example of why the number “9” was revered is found in the number of years in an Age of the Zodiac, which is 1,260, add them up to come to “9”. And a complete revolution through all Ages, all twelve signs of the Zodiac, is 25,920 years, which when added together come to “9” again

And he had an helmet of brass upon his head, and he was armed with a coat of mail; and the weight of the coat was five thousand shekels of brass.

5,000 shekels of brass is the weight of the coat. Who cares how heavy it was? It’s the numbers that are important. The number “5” in mysticism is associated with the five senses. So now we see that Goliath is associated with the lower aspects of the five senses. Stuck in the physical, material world without any awareness of the higher aspects of consciousness, which includes most of humanity today if we’re being honest.

And the staff of his spear was like a weaver’s beam; and his spear’s head weighed six hundred shekels of iron: and one bearing a shield went before him.

Again, the Biblical writers are totally focused on how much everything weighed. A fundamentalist will argue that the text is just trying to impart on you what an imposing figure Goliath is, how strong he must be to wield this heavy armor. How can David possibly prevail against such a giant beast of a man?! That’s where religion misses the mark and lands outside of the mystery which is revealed within you when you are still and silent in meditation, according to Gnostic thought.

The number “6” in mysticism is associated with “works”, “difficulty” or “toiling”. It falls just before the number “7”, which is completion. Now we see again that a number representing a lower aspect is associated with Goliath.

19 Now Saul, and they, and all the men of Israel, were in the valley of Elah, fighting with the Philistines.

The battle rages on between Saul’s forces and the Philistines “in the valley”. Remember, this is about levels of consciousness, not history. A valley is low in elevation, meaning that it’s a lower reference to consciousness, as a mountain is a higher reference. If you study the Bible stories with a discerning eye, you will notice that the various battles that take place never happen on a mountain because that is the “high place” within you. The Higher doesn’t have any need for conflict. It’s that place within you where you “hear” that small still voice that is your true guide to lasting peace within you. The negative aspects of your consciousness (Philistines, etc.) cannot and will not tread there.

One more thing before moving on, look with me at Verse 2 of this story to reveal some additional information:

And Saul and the men of Israel were gathered together, and pitched by the valley of Elah, and set the battle in array against the Philistines.

And the Philistines stood on a mountain on the one side, and Israel stood on a mountain on the other side: and there was a valley between them.

This seems, to me, to be pulled from the Indian epic called the “Mahabharata” where the “Sons of Pandu” (good and righteous aspects) are about to battle the “Sons of the Blind King” (evil, lower aspects). Both are on mountains with a valley inbetween them where the battle will take place. It bears a very strong resemblance to the story being told here, and again represents the eternal struggle between good and evil. Symbolic writing, myth, that a great many people take as actual history. The Bible follows the same pattern that fundamentalists discard as lunacy. Sad, because the Bible says to use spiritual discernment to understand the “Spirit of God”, and it labels those that don’t do this as “fools“.

The name or word “Philistine(s)” means “grievers”, “burrowers” and/or “weakeners”, which is a clear reference to something negative, a lower aspect of consciousness. Saul and the “men of Israel” symbolize the good-intentioned intellectual aspect of your mind because “David”, the child within you, the higher aspect, hasn’t entered the fray yet to bring balance, and, as previously stated, the Philistines symbolize the lower aspects of your mind. Your intellect (Saul and his armies) is always battling with the ego (Goliath), and the battle won’t end until you “birth” David within you. David symbolically becomes that “Child of Promise” that brings you into balance.

20 And David rose up early in the morning, and left the sheep with a keeper, and took, and went, as Jesse had commanded him; and he came to the trench, as the host was going forth to the fight, and shouted for the battle.

David “rose up early in the morning”. When does that child within manifest itself? When there is light. You have to come with all of your burdens, sicknesses, mental insanity that you have carried in the dark and give it to the light. That’s when the child David is birthed within you. The child cannot lift itself when you are going through the dark night of the soul. Only when you turn within, only when you find your center in meditation can the child manifest itself to bring you back into balance. That’s why the Bible speaks of the house built in silence.

Some people will say: “You keep talking about meditation which is darkness and not light. How can the child be born in darkness?” Let’s get some clarity from the Book of Amos.

Amos 5-18

18 Woe unto you that desire the day of the Lord! to what end is it for you? the day of the Lord is darkness, and not light.

In other words, it’s not the outer light that is important but the inner light. Another symbolic reference to a higher aspect of yourself, something that happens within you. Here’s one more:

Amos 5-20

20 Shall not the day of the Lord be darkness, and not light? even very dark, and no brightness in it?

The only place in the universe where light is darkness is in meditation. That’s what’s being said here.

Okay, so once again, David “rose up in the morning” meaning that when you go into meditation, you will come into the light of Nirvana and the child within you will rise up and slay the beast, which can be any number of things that are considered negative or destructive to you. “Rising up” is just there to clue you in to something higher within yourself, a higher aspect of consciousness.

We also see that David “left the sheep with a keeper”. What does that mean? Sheep, in the Bible, are symbolic of “Higher thoughts”. And what did Jesus say about thoughts? He said, “take no thought“. Fundamentalists will argue that those words mean “not to worry”. That is simply lazy apologetics or just a fallacy. Remember, the Bible tells you not to be a minster of the letter, meaning do not interpret this book literally. It literally says “the letter kills”.

“Take no thought” is a mystical reference to thoughtless meditation. You have to be willing to suspend the false teachings of fundamental religion to know the core truth that the Gnostics knew from the beginning of the Christian religion.

David “took no thought”, “left the sheep with a keeper”, it means the same thing. He is about to go “into battle” with the lower mind, so he says ‘keep these safe for me for they are precious’.

23 And as he talked with them, behold, there came up the champion, the Philistine of Gath, Goliath by name, out of the armies of the Philistines, and spake according to the same words: and David heard them.

The threat that looms large in your life is now officially on the scene. You are about to confront it head-on. But, luckily, David is ready to fight along side you in this fierce battle.

24 And all the men of Israel, when they saw the man, fled from him, and were sore afraid.

You fear this internal conflict so you try to run from it but that won’t eliminate Goliath from your life. You have to commit to this battle. Goliath has to be overcome, the lower mind has to be subdued.

25 And the men of Israel said, Have ye seen this man that is come up? surely to defy Israel is he come up: and it shall be, that the man who killeth him, the king will enrich him with great riches, and will give him his daughter, and make his father’s house free in Israel.

This passage has some very deep symbolism that needs to be broken down. Notice the change in wordage from “Saul” to “king”. That’s important and here’s why. The “king”, Higher Mind, will “enrich him with great riches, and will give him his daughter.” Daughter, when it’s a higher reference, is symbolic of “Spirit”, “emotions” when it’s lower. When you slay Goliath, the lower mind, you will be rich beyond measure and “receive Spirit from the king”, and your “father’s house”, your mind, will be free. You will be dwelling in a higher state of consciousness. But you can’t slay it with going to Church, you can’t slay it with whacking Liberals on the head with your Bible that you know nothing about, you can’t slay it with your traditions, you can’t slay it with your religions, and you can’t slay it by singing “Amazing Grace”. But slay it you must by allowing the Child, David, to rise up and do battle with the monstrous lower mind, Goliath. And it all happens inside of you when you meditate. Very hard to do but the reward is immeasurable.

As an additional reference, let’s take a brief look at Isaiah 45-3:

And I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that thou mayest know that I, the Lord, which call thee by thy name, am the God of Israel.

It’s just one of the many coded references to meditation in the Bible. “Hidden riches of secret places“.

26 And David spake to the men that stood by him, saying, What shall be done to the man that killeth this Philistine, and taketh away the reproach from Israel? for who is this uncircumcised Philistine, that he should defy the armies of the living God?

Here is the little child within you speaking. “Who is this uncircumcised Philistine”?

Romans 2 28-29

28 For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh:

29 But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God.

Circumcision was never supposed to be taken literally, so this has nothing to do with the “penis flesh” of Goliath. But, in fact, it has everything to do with “severing” yourself from the desire nature of the mind, the carnal mind to be more precise. So the Goliath aspect is one who has not risen above their lower nature, they have not “cutaway” the desire mind, they are an “uncircumcised Philistine”, and we learned earlier that the etymology of Philistines is symbolic of “grievers”, “burrowers” and/or “weakeners”.

Here is another reference as proof of a spiritual circumcision:

Jeremiah 6-10

10 To whom shall I speak, and give warning, that they may hear? behold, their ear is uncircumcised, and they cannot hearken: behold, the word of the Lord is unto them a reproach; they have no delight in it.

In other words, they are listening to the lower mind, literally, of the letter, not the Spirit. Listen to the inside not the outside.

28 And Eliab his eldest brother heard when he spake unto the men; and Eliab’s anger was kindled against David, and he said, Why camest thou down hither? and with whom hast thou left those few sheep in the wilderness? I know thy pride, and the naughtiness of thine heart; for thou art come down that thou mightest see the battle.

There are threads of Cain and Abel in this passage, and here’s how you know. Eliab is the “elder brother” of David just like Cain was the “elder brother” of Abel. The flesh (Eliab/Cain) is always born first and then the Spirit (David/Abel) in these stories. In other words, the flesh will always try to kill out the Spirit within you. Eliab will try to keep David from the battle. The lower mind will try to keep you from meditating. In the story of Cain and Abel, Abel was successful in killing Cain, the lower mind was victorious. We don’t want “history” to repeat itself, do we?

Interestingly enough, Cain means “tiller of the soil”, and Abel means “keeper of the sheep”. Clear references to the carnal mind and Higher Mind. We really want Abel to “keep our sheep”, yes?

In the story of the Prodigal Son, who was it that was angered at his return? The elder brother. It’s the same thing, the same story that’s been dressed up with different characters to secretly convey the same hidden meaning. Just like David and Eliab.

29 And David said, What have I now done? Is there not a cause?

The little Child within you is trying to assert dominion but it’s always a struggle, right? The “elder brother”, lower mind, is constantly trying keep you from ascending to that inner throne of higher consciousness.

30 And he turned from him toward another, and spake after the same manner: and the people answered him again after the former manner.

31 And when the words were heard which David spake, they rehearsed them before Saul: and he sent for him.

This parallels the part of the story in the New Testament where the Pharisees took counsel against Jesus.

32 And David said to Saul, Let no man’s heart fail because of him; thy servant will go and fight with this Philistine.

Remember, this is the Child inside of you, the one that we don’t pay any attention to, the one that we don’t let fight our battles for us. This little Child is volunteering to go into battle to slay that which keeps you from knowing and understanding your divinity. Big things come in small packages.

33 And Saul said to David, Thou art not able to go against this Philistine to fight with him: for thou art but a youth, and he a man of war from his youth.

Saul, the loser king, the false king within you, which is really just another representation of the lower mind in disguise, tries to discourage the Child. ‘Stick with me, kid, and let’s go to Church instead of meditating.’ ‘Let’s go sing Amazing Grace and everything will be just fine.’ You have to mentally subdue the false king to let the Child have dominion.

34 And David said unto Saul, Thy servant kept his father’s sheep, and there came a lion, and a bear, and took a lamb out of the flock:

This one sure sounds familiar. Let’s see if we can find another parallel in Scripture.

Isaiah 11-6

The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them.

In other words, all of that mental garbage that you have been carrying around for your entire life (wolf, lion, bear) is going to lay down with the lamb (the Christ within), and “a little Child shall lead them” to Nirvana.

One other relevant mention of this Child is found in Isaiah 9-6:

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

That passage refers to the same Child within you. It’s about you, not a literal, physical man, and if we can break away from our many years of mental, cultural, and traditional conditioning, we can begin to see that, too.

So, David (in Verse 34) is saying that: “Hey, I kept my father’s sheep. I tuned myself into the higher realms of consciousness, the thoughts of God. I listened within myself. I know what I am doing. I saw the lion come and take a sheep from the flock,” which means that the raviging nature of the lower mind has taken you away from the higher thoughts.

35 And I went out after him, and smote him, and delivered it out of his mouth: and when he arose against me, I caught him by his beard, and smote him, and slew him.

David “caught him (the lion) and smote him.” Hair that grows out of the higher realms of consciousness is divine (Samson). Hair that grows out of the lower realms is carnal (lion). Meaning ‘Let’s keep doing what we are doing’. ‘Let’s keep our religions and traditions’. That passage is, again, about the higher nature “slaying” the carnal nature.

38 And Saul armed David with his armour, and he put an helmet of brass upon his head; also he armed him with a coat of mail.

39 And David girded his sword upon his armour, and he assayed to go; for he had not proved it. And David said unto Saul, I cannot go with these; for I have not proved them. And David put them off him.

The armor that David puts on is an example of what religion gives you to fight with: doctrines, hymns, Bible studies that only focus on literal interpretations, etc., all external, exoteric. They give you all of these things that they lured you into this cult with but neglected to tell you that it has no effect on the carnal mind whatsoever. So, what does David do with these pieces of armor? He “put them off”. The Child within you knows that it has all it needs as long as you choose to set if free to fight this battle for you.

40 And he took his staff in his hand, and chose him five smooth stones out of the brook, and put them in a shepherd’s bag which he had, even in a scrip; and his sling was in his hand: and he drew near to the Philistine.

David took “five smooth stones”, and here is where we get back into some numerology. The number “5” in mysticism symbolizes the five senses. When you choose these five stones/senses, you are taking control of the them, you are transcending them to a higher level of consciousness. If David had only chosen four stones, then one of these senses would potentially be his undoing. Something he heard, something he saw could have distracted him from this battle with Goliath.

This is the same as Jesus “taking the five wounds” at the crucifixion (2 hands, 2 feet, and the spear in his side).

42 And when the Philistine looked about, and saw David, he disdained him: for he was but a youth, and ruddy, and of a fair countenance.

43 And the Philistine said unto David, Am I a dog, that thou comest to me with staves? And the Philistine cursed David by his gods.

44 And the Philistine said to David, Come to me, and I will give thy flesh unto the fowls of the air, and to the beasts of the field.

The carnal mind knows nothing of the power of the Child and that’s where it greatly errs.

45 Then said David to the Philistine, Thou comest to me with a sword, and with a spear, and with a shield: but I come to thee in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom thou hast defied.

46 This day will the Lord deliver thee into mine hand; and I will smite thee, and take thine head from thee; and I will give the carcases of the host of the Philistines this day unto the fowls of the air, and to the wild beasts of the earth; that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel.

47 And all this assembly shall know that the Lord saveth not with sword and spear: for the battle is the Lord’s, and he will give you into our hands.

48 And it came to pass, when the Philistine arose, and came, and drew nigh to meet David, that David hastened, and ran toward the army to meet the Philistine.

49 And David put his hand in his bag, and took thence a stone, and slang it, and smote the Philistine in his forehead, that the stone sunk into his forehead; and he fell upon his face to the earth.

50 So David prevailed over the Philistine with a sling and with a stone, and smote the Philistine, and slew him; but there was no sword in the hand of David.

51 Therefore David ran, and stood upon the Philistine, and took his sword, and drew it out of the sheath thereof, and slew him, and cut off his head therewith. And when the Philistines saw their champion was dead, they fled.

Inside of you is a Child that you know nothing about, waiting for you to give him/her permission to go forth and destroy Goliath, and all of them will laugh at you. The Baptists, Catholics, Methodists, Protestants, Mormons, Pentecostals, all of them will laugh at you, saying: “Don’t do that. Don’t meditate. You’ll open your mind to demons if you do that. You can’t stop Satan with meditation”. But the Child within takes the stone, that which is the Pineal Gland of the Brain, and flings it at and impacts the forehead, the place of consciousness, of Goliath, and slays the lower mind. The separation is complete. This stone is the same “stone that the builders rejected” in Psalm 118-22. You have to build your foundation upon that stone, not the sand of religion.

How many of you, before reading this article, have ever thought of fighting the problems of your life with this Child within you? And many of you that still have problems don’t trust that Child. When you trust it, the “slaying of Goliath” can commence and you can finally be free. And, once again, this never happened but it does happen within you.

  1. Very Good. I am anticipating part 2 for more depth on the armour of Goliath and the 5 smooth stones of David and why only one was needed to slay the giant. Thank you.

    1. Hi Michael,

      As far as my knowledgeable base goes, the description of Goliath’s armor (mail & helmet) and weapon (weaver’s beam) don’t appear to have any deeper meaning. I think it’s just used to convey the myth, tell the story.

      I also think this explanation can be attached to the single stone used to “slay Goliath”. A slingshot can literally only sling one stone at a time. But, the number one in mysticism, is representative of “God”. That could possibly tie in deeper. Maybe something like only God, or the Divine aspect of your being, can slay the carnal mind/Goliath. And as the article mentions, the five smooth stones simply symbolize the five senses that need to be transcended to bring you to a higher level of consciousness.

      I could be completely wrong about this, as esoteric symbolism can sometimes have multiple layers of interpretation.

      Great questions! Thanks for asking!
