Speaks on "Symbolic Scriptures of Soul"
Sunday, October 1, 2017 at 11:00am
The various scriptures of mankind reveal to us in symbolic language our own spiritual journey and life purpose. These stories are guiding lights to assist us to gain a deeper understanding of our true nature and purpose as well as inspire us to fulfill our spiritual life mission. This Sunday we will meditate on three metaphoric stories, namely the life of King David in the Old Testament, the Dialogue between Arjuna and Krishna in the Srimad-Bhagavad-Gita and the life of Jesus of Christ Consciousness. In order to understand fully these stories, one must keep in mind their spiritual significance within the story. Each of the characters refer to the same reality under different aspects. So, for example, in the Old Testament account of King David, he, Samuel, King Saul, Goliath, and King Solomon refer to the same reality under different aspects. The same holds true for Krishna, Arjuna, Dhritarashtra and Sanjaya as well as the various characters in the birth, death and resurrection of Jesus of Christ Consciousness. There are other similarities which we will discover together as we learn that the same truths are conveyed in different forms in each story in their own unique manner. Please join us this coming Sunday at 11am for our worship service.
