Embedded within the Bible are key mystical principles designed to help souls reach their highest spiritual potential. From the metaphysical perspective, in addition to being a tool of faith, the Bible can be studied as a roadmap to enlightenment.
The study of the Bible is a life-long pursuit. It represents the spiritual and creative efforts of many people over many centuries. While it is true that the Bible was primarily written as a religious text, from my own work as a spiritual teacher and clairvoyant, the Bible is essential because it represents the foundation of the metaphysical work I have been teaching my entire career. These metaphysical principles are known as The Kingdom of Light Teachings and the Bible contains the first collected record of these teachings.
I am often asked, “Do religion and metaphysics mix?” My answer is a resounding yes. When rightly understood, religion and metaphysics are different aspects of the same spiritual process. Both play their part in your spiritual ascent.
The religious aspect of spiritual teachings introduces the aspiring soul to eternal truths through the key notes of faith and belief. This is an active faith that deeply involves the mind and reason as well as a strong intuitive nature. Through these keys, one builds his or her spiritual understanding and walks far on the spiritual path.
Yet faith is not an end unto itself. Faith must eventually give way to knowing. And here is where metaphysics comes in. Metaphysics helps the growing soul bridge the gap between faith and knowing through the process we call enlightenment. Through enlightenment, the soul breaks the veil of matter and can experience the divine directly.
It must be said that while the core teachings of the Bible were written by illumined souls who had direct contact with the divine, through the centuries, the Bible has been tampered with. As sad as it is to say, other less inspired hands have left their mark on the Bible. So your goal in understanding these esoteric teachings is not to try and make every word divine, but to find the divine jewels embedded within the Bible.
There is a unifying metaphysical principle that runs through both the Tanakh (Old Testament) and the New Testament. Of course, these two books were written at very different times and under very different conditions. Yet while they represent two differing world faiths, metaphysically they represent a unified spiritual principle.
The seeds of the divine teachings that were placed in the Tanakh took root in the New Testament. And The New Day that we are all looking forward to will represent yet a third phase of this work, which will be the full flowering of these teachings. So the Bible is very much a living teaching and a work in progress.
When reading any spiritual text, ask the Divine Light to illuminate what you are meant to understand from the reading. In these sacred writings, the Holy Ones have given us a wealth of information and knowledge to work with. From the first prototypal teachings of the early Hebrew mystics, to the mystic pioneers in the early Christian era and the spiritual renaissance unfolding today, The Kingdom of Light Teachings as revealed in the Bible has much to offer to the aspiring soul. I urge you to stay close to God and the Divine Light.
