Kens Project: The Experience of Pure Consciousness
Collecting exact expressions of pure consciousness from the greatest thinkers of the main steam from the east and west.
This includes the Veda of course, but also western intellectual cultural spiritual heritage such as the Greeks, Roman, Dekardt and went right through History of Philosophy right through to the 21st century. Jesus is just one of them.
The Sources of Jesus’ Teaching of Enlightenment
Which is expressed in two basic sources:
- The Bible - The teaching of enlightenment is included there. But if you don’t have a clear paradigm of what enlightenment is you don’t see it.
- 7-14 gospels written down by his disciples and then lost.
What is exciting is that these teachings are currently now being revealed. These scriptures such as the lost gospels have only recently been discovered, mostly in the twentieth century.
Jesus’ Teaching of Enlightenment
The experience of Transcending. Described in all traditions.
Transcending and Experiencing Pure Consciousness
What is transcending?
Deep settling of the activity of the mind which causes our attention to go deeper, subtler and quieter until we remain awake with clear restful alertness to experience pure consciousness which is unbounded, unchangeable, blissful and infinite.
The eternal Light of God - what Jesus called the all-pervading pure consciousness.
What is Enlightenment?
- A natural result of developing the full potential of human consciousness.
- The potential to attain enlightenment is a universal human capability inherent in the human nervous system. Thus, every human being has this capacity to attain enlightenment.
- Enlightenment is a state of consciousness that is far more knowing, more vital and more blissful than ordinary waking state.
- It provides an ability to act more effectively in the word and achieve excellence in all endeavours.
- As consciousness develops, one gains a kind of direct knowledge and expanded knowledge of the universal consciousness - the foundation of all life.
An Experience Based Approach vs Faith:
This needs to dominate in religion, then people of all religions will rise above conflict and dogma and live the supreme enlightenment Jesus taught is possible.
When established in the inner light, we know the inner Divine life of Jesus in our own experience.
Paul teachings was a faith approach.
The “Lost” or “Original” Gospels that have now been found.
Approximately 14 lost gospels record Jesus’ true teachings. Transcending and pure consciousness. These were written by Jesus’ own disciples, while Jesus was alive.
Some of them are:
- The Gospel of Mary - “how to rest in silence.”
- The Gospel of Thomas
- The (Secret) Gospel of Mark
- John - “The great unbounded one.”
- The Saviour.
- Gospel of Mathew
Common aspects and some of the exact same phrases of Jesus’ teachings from these gospels that are also in Vedic texts.
A major difference between the teaching of Jesus and the teaching of Paul (todays Christianity):
Heaven is On Earth. It is not something one acquires after dropping their body and leaving this earth.
“The kingdom come, thy will be done on earth, as it is in heaven.”
Enhancing the collective consciousness with the ability to bring heavenly light and coherence to everyone to eliminate all negative thinking, war, crime, corruption, sickness and all the problems of the modern man.
Jesus’ teaching of Yoga:
“Take my yoke upon you… and ye shall find rest to your souls.”
Yoke from the Greek yugos, which is closely related to the Sanskrit word yoga.
Jesus mentioning “AUM”:
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God.”
John 1: 1-4
Aum is the primordial sound of creation.
The (Secret) Gospel of Mark
St. Clement was well aware that the Secret Gospel of Mark was kept at the Church in Alexandria. Clement commanded in his letter to Alexandria that the priests there:
“deny even under oath [that Mark had written a secret gospel] for one does not have to speak the whole truth to everyone.”
However, Clement privately encouraged people to be initiated in the Mysteries of Christ, for he practiced them. He praised “our sacred mysteries:”
“O Truly sacred mysteries! O pure light! In the blaze of torches I have a vision of heaven and of God. I become holy by initiation. The Lord [Jesus] reveals the mysteries.”
~ Clement of the Greeks, Exhortation of Alexandria.
The reoccurring theme of the Church denying and hiding true principles and teachings in order to protect the Church movement from change.
The pattern of denying ancient gospels to protect the faith has become Vatican policy.
The Essene Gospel Of Peace
Jesus’ teaching to a group of spiritual men that were living in harmony with nature in a monastic environment. These men were worthy of high teachings, so Jesus taught some high end knowledge.
“Seek not the law in your scriptures, for the law is life, whereas the scripture is dead…The law is the living word of the living God to living prophets for living men. In everything that is life is the law written. You find it in the grass, in the tree, in the river, in the mountain, in the birds of heaven, in the fishes of the sea; but seek it chiefly in yourselves.”
“Do not wait for death to reveal the great mystery;
If you know not your Heavenly Father
While your feet treat the dusty soil,
There shall be naught but shadows for thee in the life to come.
Here and now is the mystery revelled.
Here and now is the curtain lifted.”
- Heaven is on earth.
“As the sheaf of golden wheat
Lieth hidden within the tiny kernel.
So is the kingdom of heaven
Hidden within our thoughts.”
- This is exactly the language in which the Vedic tradition describes the hiding power (chhandas) of thoughts that covers the subtler heaven within.
“you can then look upon the blinding light of the Heavenly Father, which is a thousand times brighter that the brightness of a thousand suns.”
- Practically the same as the Upanishads, which describe pure consciousness as brighter than a thousand suns.
Jesus’ Teaching of Transcending - The Greater Mystery
Jesus Initiating Disciples into a Transcendental Technique - in my language, he gave them mantras
“I have given them the words which thou gavest me, and that have received them…that they may be one, as we are one.”
John 17: 8-11
“that they may all be one; even as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they may also be in us…The glory which though hast given to them, that they may be one even as we are one.”
Primordial Sounds mentioned in the Pistis Sophia
The Gospels of Mark, Matthew and Luke depict Jesus as a “sower of words,” referring to the special sounds he gave his disciples.
Mantras - repeating a meaningless sound.
The Pistis Sophia refers to special sacred syllables that heal and lead the the fullness of light.
Book V of the Pistis Sophia begins with him standing together with his disciples in a circle. “turning towards the four corner of the world with his disciple, who were all clothes in [white] linen…he said out loud: “iao, iao, iao.”
Maharishi also spoke of the same three syllables as the three primordial sounds or vowels that contain all other sounds of cosmic intelligence.
- These three syllables were also recoded in the Gospel of Thomas.
- The Acts of St. John, another ancient document found in Egypt, describes Jesus standing in a circle with his disciples and delivering a “secret initiation.”
- The Secret Gospel of Mark affirms a similar initiation.
- The Gospel of Batholomew also speaks of certain teaching given to the Apostles in a secret by the Lord in the circle rite.
- Valntinius also mentions the three syllabules.
- Zostrainos manuscript (found at Nag Hamadi) speaks of “stilling the chaos in his mind,” through a practice which he calls “meditation.”
- The Gospel of Phillip refers to sacred syllables.
- Another ancient manuscript found at Nag Hamadi called the Discourse on the Eight and Ninth tells of a sequence of sacred sounds that initiates repeat in silence. Then after reacting the Divin syllables, the teacher exclaims “I see! I see indescribable depths…I see myself!…I have found the beginning of the power that is above all powers, the one that has no beginning…”
