In the Book of Judges, after Joshua’s death, the tribes of Israel continue their conquest of the southern regions of Canaan, but they are unable to cleanse the land thoroughly of its native inhabitants. God declares that these remaining people will be an impediment to Israel’s enjoyment of the promised land. Generations pass, and the younger Israelites turn away from God, intermarrying with the Canaanites and worshipping the local deities. God threatens to abandon Israel because of the disobedience of the youth, but he selects a series of judges, or rulers, to act as temporary leaders for the people.
Throughout the lives of these judges, the narrator tells us, Israel’s behavior follows a consistent pattern: the people of Israel fall into evil, God sends a leader to save them, and, once the judge dies, the people commit even greater evil. When the Israelites’ continued worship of the Canaanite gods leads to an invasion by the nation of Moab, God sends Israel a left-handed man named Ehud to be its deliverer. Ehud visits the Moabite king and offers to give the king a secret message from God. When the king dismisses his attendants, Ehud draws a sword strapped to his right thigh and plunges it into the obese king, killing him. Ehud escapes and leads the Israelites in regaining control of the Jordan River valley.
Truths of Sacred Books
Each book of the Bible is about the same subject but told in differing ways. Each story is an allegory, a symbolic way of explaining the workings of the body and how the body is intelligence made manifest. With each story, we must look within to understand, overstand and innerstand what the writers were trying to convey.
The truths of these sacred books have survived because they are in allegory. If they had been told plainly, the information would have been repressed. In fact, the truth has been repressed even in its allegorical form. The Bible warns us, “At that time if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Messiah!’ or, ‘There he is!’ do not believe it.” Matthew 24:23. The Christ is within each and every one of us. It is delusional to believe that the Christ who will save us is outside of ourselves. He is within. The savior you are looking for is yourself.
The locations mentioned in the scriptures are to be found in your body. The people are alchemical processes that are supremely important to our health and well being. The laws and holy days are also allegory functions within the body. The human body should be the destination of all pilgrimages. Reading the Bible and then meditating on how the scripture is explaining your own body to you should be the goal of any serious student.
Make the Scriptures Your Own
Look to God for Guidance. Make the scriptures your own. They are here for you. God has a personal message in the Bible for you. Meditation will unlock it.
As you study the texts and make it your own you must only look to your neighbor with the grace of love. Judgement of others or self-judgement is not allowed. Discernment is a necessity.
Align yourself with other loving individuals. If love is not found in a person than that is where discernment comes into play. Separate yourself from the unloving for God is not found in them. They have either not looked for God or have rejected Him/Her. Both parts of God (Him/Her) must be acknowledged and loved in order for a person to be made whole.
A person who is not whole cannot love because they do not know love because they do not love themselves. We are all a unique mix of feminine and masculine (Adam/Eve). Both sides must be acknowledged as Divine and loved as such.
As you go through each chapter ask God to guide your learning. You want to let go of all preconceived notions of what the Bible is saying. Your divine guides will guide you to have the understanding that will lead you to perfecting the being you are meant to be. It is God’s purpose.
Acceptance doesn’t mean giving in or resigning yourself to a life less than you desire. It means accepting things as they are right now and being okay with the present moment, knowing that everything is where it needs to be. Trust that anything is possible from this moment on and the best is yet to come.
Do your affirmation and meditation exercises before going into your Bible reading. For a fully experience, It is advisable that you do a Mindful Breathing Meditation and a Chakra Balancing Meditation also.
Bible over-standing is important. It is important for you to be properly prepared. It is important that you are vibrating at your highest level in love so that you can over-stand what God wants you to know.
Meditations and Affirmations
Choose an affirmation and repeat several times daily of during meditation:
- I accept myself as I am right now.
- I accept where I am in my life and trust everything if working out for me.
- I live each day with a calm acceptance of everyone and everything.
- I know that I am being Divinely guided in the best way for me.
1ST MINI MEDITATION
Get comfortable and close your eyes. Take several deep breaths. Feel your body in contact with the chair, bed or floor.
As you relax further, focus on any part of parts of your body you wish. Imagine this area bathed in healing light that is the color of your choice. Visualize the area being filled with love and acceptance. Say, “I love and accept you right now.”
You may wish to name the body part, or focus on your overall body, and say, “I love and accept myself right now.” Repeat this for as long as you life, on any areas of the body you feel the need to, then slowly open your eyes and continue with your study.
Open your favorite Bible to a scripture you have had your mind on or just ask for guidance and randomly open it to any scripture you are guided to read. After reading the scripture you are ready for the second meditation.
2ND MINI MEDITATION
1. To begin with, you can sit comfortably and relax. You don’t have to feel self-conscious, as though you are about to do something special or weird. Just be at ease. It helps if your back can be straight, without being strained or overarched. You can close your eyes or not, however you feel comfortable. Notice where the feeling of the breath is most predominant—at the nostrils, at the chest, or at the abdomen. Rest your attention lightly, in just
2. See if you can feel just one breath, from the beginning through the middle, to the end. If you’re with the breath at the nostrils, it may be tingling, vibration, warmth, coolness. If at the abdomen, it may be movement, pressure, stretching, release. You don’t have to name them, but feel them. It’s just one breath.
3. Notice what arises. Remember the reason for the meditation. What Bible text did you want further over-standing. Hold the thought clearly in your mind and then let it go with each breath.
Don’t Allow Distractions
4. Notice when you’re distracted. Be aware when something arises—sensations, emotions, thoughts, whatever it might be. If it’s strong enough to take your attention away from the feeling of the breath, or if you’ve fallen asleep, or if you get lost in some incredible fantasy, see if you can let go of the distraction and begin again. Bring your attention back to the breath. If you have to let go and begin again thousands of times, it’s fine, that’s the practice.
5. You may notice the rhythm of your breath changing in the course of this meditation session. You can just allow it to be however it is. Whatever arises, you can shepherd your attention back to the feeling of the breath.
6. Remember that in letting go of distra
