Aleph Bayt. ALL Love - Be it


Why did Jesus always call "God" Aleph Bayt ? אב (Father)

From 300 BC to 300 AD. ie: Dead Sea scrolls (Sons of Zadok/Essenes) - I'd love to see all writings since 0 AD through 300 AD - ALL LOVE. Be it.

Hebrew "Father" is Aleph-Bayt. And the numbers 1 and 2
I'd like to get my hands on book of Matthew written in Hebrew.
It's Hidden I guess... ALL LOVE = One. Aleph|en|כל

כל האהבה אוליב Be Love. That's what you are. - Be Love.

When you study letters - you realize that it's all about LOVE. Love your neighbor. Love your enemy. We are ALL ONE LOVE.
When you read the letters from left to right - it sounds like "Be it - ALL LOVE"
אב. Bayt -Aleph Be it. ALL Love. Jesus called "God" ABBA. ALL LOVE -BE IT BE IT - ALL LOVE.

Learn your Alphabet. Alpha-bet. Aleph-Bayt. All Leph Be it. All Love - Be it.
Be it - ALL Love. Aleph. Olive. bayt aleph.

Jesus spoke on the Mount of Olive. or was it the Mount of Aleph ... ALL-LOVE
The 1st 2 letters of the Hebrew Alpha-bet. (and all others) I just realized that. Aleph Bayt (A Love. Be it)

RT @TheQuietAnswer Only in each other can we find ourselves. #ACIM

A Love. Be it. (aleph bayt)

It's too bad more people don't know about Q or Thomas - it would end all the Wars. @MartijnLinssen

I'd like to get on a dig in Egypt or Qumran - where they'll most likely find the Logia (Q) later this year. (or next)

Earlier Logia ( sayings of Jesus) ...

Papias (c 60 - 130) Early Christian Bishop of Hierapolis,"Expositions of the Oracles of the Lord" states: "Matthew compiled the Logia in the Hebrew language, and each person interpreted them as he was able", survives only in quotations made by Irenaeus and Eusebius.

Let there be Light. Our Universe 13.7 Billion Years ago....

"The Hubble Space Telescope has captured the earliest image yet of the universe -- just 600 million years after the Big Bang, when the universe was just a toddler.
Scientists released the photo yesterday at a meeting of the American Astronomical Society. It's the most complete picture of the early universe so far, showing galaxies with stars that are already hundreds of millions of years old, along with the unmistakable primordial signs of the first cluster of stars." ....
Actually, you can see, after a fashion, farther back in the comfort of our own home, if you have a TV with the older picture tube (not an LCD or a plasma set). Cut the set on to an unused channel (you may have to disconnect the cable input), and look at the static on the screen. About 10% of that static is caused by radiation emitted about 379,000 years after Creation during a period called The Recombination (This is when God actually said "Let there be light!"). The radiation was originally an orange-colored light, but space has expanded by a factor of over a thousand over the 13.7 billion years since then, thus stretching the orange light wavelengths a thousand times, changing them into the microwaves that react with the old-style television tube."

Isha Upanishad - Everything is God

It moves and It moves not. It is far and also It is near. It is within and also It is without all this. - Isha Upanishad

All manifestation is merely a modification of the One Supreme Whole .... The Whole therefore remains unaltered. - Isha Upanishad

All existence is in the Absolute; and whatever exists, must exist in It; - Isha Upanishad

In the light of true wisdom the phenomenal and the Absolute are inseparable. - Isha Upanishad

The indefinite term “That” is used in the Upanishads to designate the Invisible–Absolute, because no word or name can fully define It. - Isha Upanishad

OM! That (the Invisible–Absolute) is whole; whole is this (the visible phenomenal); from the Invisible Whole comes forth the visible whole. - Isha Upanishad

... the One Cosmic Existence shines through all things - Isha Upanishad long as man believes himself to be separate from the Whole, he is helpless. - Isha Upanishad

That is the ocean, we are the drops. So long as the drop remains separate from the ocean, it is small and weak; - Isha Upanishad

That which comes out of the Infinite Whole must also be infinite; hence the Self is infinite. - Isha Upanishad

...there is no difference between the Self and God. They are one and the same. - Isha Upanishad

Transcending death means realizing the difference between body and Soul and identifying oneself with the Soul - Isha Upanishad

..when he sees all creatures within his true Self, then jealousy, grief and hatred vanish. He alone can love. - Isha Upanishad

He who sees all beings in his Self and his Self in all beings, he never suffers - Isha Upanishad

We must not divide our conception of the universe; for in dividing it, we have only fragmentary knowledge and we thus limit ourselves. -Isha Upanishad

.... behold the vast, radiant, subtle, ever–pure and spotless Self, the true basis of our existence. - Isha Upanishad

When a man sees God in all beings and all beings in God, and also God dwelling in his own Soul, how can he hate any living thing? - Isha Upanishad

He who perceives the Self everywhere never shrinks from anything, because through his higher consciousness he feels united with all life.

He who perceives all beings as the Self for him how can there be delusion or grief, when he sees this oneness (everywhere) ? Isha Upanishad

He who sees all beings in the Self and the Self in all beings, he never turns away from It - Isha Upanishad

It is the innermost Soul of all creatures & It is without as the essence of the whole external universe... Isha Upanishad

It is near to those who have the power to understand It, for It dwells in the heart of every one - Isha Upanishad

Albert Einstein and the Nazarene.


As a child I received instruction both in the Bible and in the Talmud. I am a Jew, but I am enthralled by the luminous figure of the Nazarene.... No one can read the Gospels without feeling the actual presence of Jesus. His personality pulsates in every word. No myth is filled with such life.

God according to Albert Einstein, Baruch Spinoza, Carl Sagan

Carl Sagan writes,

Some people think God is an outsized, light-skinned male with a long white beard, sitting on a throne somewhere up there in the sky, busily tallying the fall of every sparrow. Others—for example Baruch Spinoza and Albert Einstein—considered God to be essentially the sum total of the physical laws which describe the universe. I do not know of any compelling evidence for anthropomorphic patriarchs controlling human destiny from some hidden celestial vantage point, but it would be madness to deny the existence of physical laws.

And Einstein states:
I believe in Spinoza’s God who reveals himself in the orderly harmony of what exists, not in a God who concerns himself with the fates and actions of human beings. (Albert Einstein)

And Spinoza writes:
Whatsoever is, is in God, and without God nothing can be, or be conceived. – Baruch Spinoza

We feel and Know that we are eternal. – Baruch Spinoza

God is the indwelling …… Baruch Spinoza

Do not weep; do not wax indignant. Understand. – Baruch Spinoza

Einstein believed that “God” exists in everything. He is the same kind of atheist as Baruch Spinoza. One that believed “God/Nature” is all there is.

"I do not believe in a personal God and I have never denied this but have expressed it clearly. If something is in me which can be called religious then it is the unbounded admiration for the structure of the world so far as our science can reveal it." (Albert Einstein, 1954)

Whatsoever is, is in God, and without God nothing can be, or be conceived. – Baruch Spinoza

“I have repeatedly said that in my opinion the idea of a personal God is a childlike one. You may call me an agnostic, but I do not share the crusading spirit of the professional atheist whose fervor is mostly due to a painful act of liberation from the fetters of religious indoctrination received in youth. I prefer an attitude of humility corresponding to the weakness of our intellectual understanding of nature and of our own being.”
Albert Einstein – 1949

However, Einstein’s God was not the God of most other men. … Einstein’s God appears as the physical world itself, with its infinitely marvelous structure operating at atomic level with the beauty of a craftsman’s wristwatch, and at stellar level with the majesty of a massive cyclotron.
Ronald W. Clark, Einstein: The Life and Times, New York: World Publishing, 1971, pp. 19-20.

The Ad Herennium - Memory Technique (90 BC)

Why is it that some images are so strong and sharp and so suitable for awakening memory, whilst others are so weak and feeble that they hardly stimulate memory at all ? We must enquire into this so as to know which images to avoid and which to seek.

"Now nature herself teaches us what we should do. When we see in every day life things that are pretty, ordinary, and banal, we generally fail to remember them, because the mind is not being stirred by anything novel or marvellous. But if we see or hear something exceptionally base, dishonorable, unusual, great, unbelievable, or ridiculous, that we are likely to remember for a long time.... We ought then, to set up images of a kind that can adhere longest in memory. And we shall do so if we establish similitudes as striking as possible; if we set up images that are not many or vague but active (imagines agentes); if we assign to them exceptional beauty or singular ugliness; if we ornament some of them, as with crowns or purple cloaks, so as the similitude may be more distinct to us; or if we somehow disfigure them, as by introducing one stained with blood or soiled with mud or smeared with red paint, so that it's form is more striking, or by assigning certain comic effects to our images, for that too, will ensure our remembering them more readily. The things we easily remember when they are real we likewise remember them without difficulty when they are figments." (Ad Herennium - 90 BC)

Mark 15:17
They put a purple robe on him, then twisted together a crown of thorns and set it on him.

Isaiah 52:14
Just as there were many who were appalled at him — his appearance was so disfigured beyond that of any man and his form marred beyond human likeness—

John 19:34
Instead, one of the soldiers pierced Jesus' side with a spear, bringing a sudden flow of blood and water.

Are you implying there was no historical Jesus ?

My Response to Rationalists:

You asked,
Are you implying there was no historical Jesus?

Jesus exists before History. Because he understood that he was the same “I am” that exists in all things before time.

You are the same “I am” – everything is “that”

Why does evolution stop at the monkey, the fish, the Icthys, the algae, the bacteria, the single celled organism, the zygote ?

Where does the Universe come from ?

What does the best Science tell us ?

From a single point? – A Quark ? A fermion ? A Higgs Boson, something smaller ?

Infinitly smaller – that means that we have all evolved from “that”

We are all made of the same stuff. Carl Sagan called it Star Stuff – and he was correct,

Einstein was Correct.

Baruch Spinoza was Correct.

Yahshua (Esse) of Nazareth was Correct.

The Essenes, the Nazarenes were Correct.

Parable ? Yes .

Mythology ? Yes

Fiction ? Yes

Quantum Physics ? Yes

Truth ? What is Truth ?

Luke 17:21 Research by Ilaria Ramelli - Catholic University Milan

....In this study Ilaria Ramelli clearly demonstrates that in Luke 17:21 the right translation of Jesus’ words is not, “God’s Kingdom is among you,” or “in the midst of you,” as modern versions into English and other languages gener- ally render, but “God’s Kingdom is inside you.” Strong support for the latter comes from ancient Syriac versions of this and other Gospel
passages, from a systematic investigation of the meaning of e)nto/j in all of Greek literature anterior to, and contemporary with, Luke, and from a careful analysis of the expression e)nto/j + genitive in the New Testament and the Septuagint. Ramelli argues that, if the evangelist
had meant “The Kingdom of God is among you,” he would have used, not e)nto\j u(mw=n, but e)n me/sw| u(mw=n, which is widely at- tested in this meaning in the New Testament and especially in Luke.

Moreover, the translation that Ramelli advocates and that the Syriac versions support fits better in the immediate context of an address to the Pharisees and in Luke’s theology and conception of God’s Kingdom, and is also corroborated by a Kingdom logion in the Gospel of Thomas and by Greek and Syriac Patristic exegesis.
