The Mysteries of Christianity: Part I

“Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
~ John 8:32

Every religion of the past had an occult side which had custody of Mysteries and Initiations that were sought by eminent men of their time. Most of these ancient religions profess to be custodians of a Gnosis: Divine Knowledge per se.

Modern Christianity, in opposition of the other religions, professes to not have Gnosis, offering instead a simple profession of faith without offering profound knowledge. If this statement was to be the truth, it would be unfortunate as Christianity would be classified as only a one dimensional spiritual/religious practice, destined only to one class of individuals and not to be the real “Universal Church” intended by its creator.

In any school of Wisdom and knowledge it was customary to introduce to the disciples first the “Minor Mysteries” and then the “Major Mysteries”, where the emphasis was given around the authority of the teachings. Undoubtedly, modern Christianity has lost its mystical and esoteric teachings and its effects have been observed especially among more educated people. It is no surprise that many intelligent and highly ethical people have strayed from the churches because of the current teachings of the church, as they regard them as contrary to their sense of morals or an attempt against their intelligence.

We cannot say that that the actual expansion of agnosticism is due only by the conditioning and cultivation of a modern concrete mind, but also due to the amount of contradictions of teachings from the diverse authorities, especially in regards of the concept of God, Men, Universe and how all they relate to each other. The truth of Christianity was intended to liberate the minds of men, not to transform them into slaves of dogma and discrimination, and puppets of selected elites.

One cannot deny that there is something missing in today’s Christian religious vision that was prevalent and vivid in ancient times. Christianity was a doctrine that captured the attention and the spirit of men in that time, completely changing their lives. As a doctrine and practice it was regarded to be noble enough to die for and many in the early church accepted martyrdom. Where is this silver lining, what was that they had back then?

The rebellion against the Christian teachings came from the dishonored concepts about the anthropomorphic characteristics of God, and the degradation of all of the philosophical instructions given by the Master Jesus; inputting on them such a simplistic connotation that only the ignorant could really understand it.

The Protestants preached that nothing should be taught except the lessons that could be understand by the simple mind, because the power of the Gospel, they say, resides in its simplicity, therefore, the ignorant and the child would be able to understand it and apply it to their regular lives.

No doubt the Master understood this necessity to spread wide and beyond the teachings, but he did adopt a series of techniques that facilitated his way of disseminate the Divine word: Jesus used the resource of storytelling, the parables, to illustrate the moral teachings and prescriptions of healthy and conscious living. But it is also truth that the same Master, at the end of many stated wisdoms declared.

“He who has ears to hear, let him hear.”
~ Mark 4:9

This expression is frequently used by the Master Jesus Christ. It is a proverbial expression, implying that the highest attention should be given to what was spoken, but also reemphasize that the ones that have more faculty of understanding should gather the teaching in its deeper meaning.

“Man’s Unlimited Potential” with Joseph Selbie, co-author of “The Yugas”

Millions are wondering what the future holds for mankind, and if we are soon due for a world-changing global shift. Paramhansa Yogananda (author of the classic Autobiography of a Yogi) and his teacher, Sri Yukteswar, offered key insights into this subject. They presented a fascinating explanation of the rising and falling eras that our planet cycles through every 24,000 years. According to their teachings, we have recently passed through the low ebb in that cycle and are moving to a higher age — an Energy Age that will revolutionize the world.

Over one hundred years ago Yukteswar predicted that we would live in a time of extraordinary change, and that much that we believe to be fixed and true — our entire way of looking at the world — would be transformed and uplifted. In The Yugas, authors Selbie and Steinmetz present substantial and intriguing evidence from the findings of historians and scientists that demonstrate the truth of Yukteswar’s and Yogananda’s revelations.

Understanding Karma and Dharma


When individuals are facing challenging situations in their lives, nothing is less helpful than to try to rationalize with them the cause of their pain based on possible events that may have their roots anchored in a former life situation. This type of introspection, far from bringing relief and healing, may cause the adverse aspects of resentment, anger and denial, and can easily intensify the amount of pain of their life.

The Karma and the Dharma, at the same time the Cause and the Purpose of events in our lives, must be studied with care, and always with a stable state of mind, when the ability to analyze and understand is not impaired by pain and lower emotions. They are powerful concepts that may bring light into situations and how they weave themselves in the fabric of our lives.

One of the best influences from the eastern wisdom to our western minds is the notion of Karma as a chain of past events, people, and circumstances that are still present in our lives as challenges to be faced and overcome.

The word Karma is now a vernacular word incorporated in every single language and culture of our Western civilization, even for those that do not necessarily accept the concept as a philosophical reality of the Eastern thought process.This one-dimensional outlook accepts the concept as a simplified game of mathematical proportions, when in fact is much more than simple addition and subtraction: it is a complicated integral with a cluster of causes that interact with each other holographically, generating an effect.

The complete understanding of this concept is difficult because of how it is currently disseminated as a stand-alone concept. When it was originally taught, Karma was explained in context with other important concepts, such as its counterparts Dharma and Samskara.

For the beginning student, Dharma can easily turn out to be a much more complex concept than Karma. Its original meaning can be assumed to be something such as correct conduct, purpose, evolution, teaching, moral rectitude, spirituality and divine purpose. But still after all these definitions; the concept of Dharma is not easily definable, because all the translations are incomplete and partial in their meaningful descriptions.

As a complementary principal to the notion of Karma, Dharma could be well defined as a tendency or line of conduct we have to incorporate into our lives as a result of alignment with our Karma; the direction, or pathway we must trail during this lifetime.

In fact, our Karma is compounded by many different conflicts, diverse procedures and circumstances resultant of some harmonic and some dis-harmonic actions of our re-incarnation path. The tangent resulting of these multiple actions points towards a determined direction or course that is aligned with the Universal Divine Order and our lives. This is Dharma.Christianity regards Dharma as the “divine plan of our lives”.

Nevertheless, in order to achieve the Dharma in our lives, we need to first navigate the tormentous waters of the Karma until there is no longer dissonance and our internal world is aligned with our exterior world. When this alignment is achieved, there is no longer a difference between our Karma and our Dharma. The more we work towards a transmutation of the Karma, the more we manifest our Dharmic purpose in life.

When the complete strength of the Soul becomes awakened in the physical form, Karma and Dharma balance and they become the same.Even in the most painful moments of our lives, we are simultaneously working our Karma and our Dharma, because ultimately our Dharma is the entire purpose we came to unfold in this lifetime.

The comprehension of these two complementary concepts is the keystone for the building of a strong foundation of knowledge, which will facilitate the enduring of difficult situations in our existences. Both of these aggregate unknown and unseen casual forces that tend to shape our destinies, changing action by action, choice by choice, the overview of our lives through both nice and less than nice experiences. Pain and suffering seems to manifest a Dharmic purpose as well as the Karmic system of rewarding cause and effect.

Through human suffering lie the hard lessons or re-directive guidance that sows the seeds of tolerance, compassion, empathy and patience.

Deepak Chopra: 1. Scientific Understanding of Consciousness 2. The Universe evolves in consciousness 3.How Consciousness creates Multiple Worlds

Scientific Understanding of Consciousness


There is a reason why the scientific understanding of the brain will never solve of the issue of consciousness. The limitation is not technical, but it is in principal . We see neural networks of the brain by using medical imaging, but consciousness perceives that network and consciousness is not visible.

A physical system will never explain the sense of Self, an imagined future or a remembered past, an initiation of an action or free will. As we understand this, we should ask ourselves , what is the most primal experience of our lives. It is our subjective experience of our reality and that is experienced in our consciousness.

The Universe evolves in consciousness

Reality is different in different states of consciousness
