One can also compare it to a beautiful
woman covered with many veils. That is the reason why the
exegesis of the past is not relevant for our time.
I was also shown that the Bible is not a religious book in
the accepted meaning of the word. Neither it is mainly
dealing with ethics, it is all that and more. It is rather a
book dealing with survival, not survival as an animal, but
as a human being. It is its core, the Torah, which kept the
Jewish people alive against all odds, without any of the
attributes which usually define a people or a nation. But it
is even more. As shown by its name, it is a document showing
us a way to become free.
Discovered? Shown? These are the only
words that fit, because most of the information included in
this book is not my own, it was dictated to me. When I
started to write this book, my hand suddenly became
independent and I could only look on and wonder at the words
and sentences which appeared on the paper in front of me.
What was it that my hand wrote: “This is a message of love
dealing with the all-encompassing love of God to all that
exists whether manifest or unmanifest, whether it has
existed in the past, is existing in our time or will exist
in the future; for there is neither time nor space in the
eyes of God the creator. All these are but the illusions man
has created to live by. This is a message which shows that
all is one and one is all, and that one and all are but
different aspects of God the Creator. Different aspects and
yet the same, for all is unity, all is but one. It is a
message which speaks of total love and understanding, of man
to man, of man to all that has been created, and of man to
God. For all is God and God is all.
It was in that part of the Bible called by the Christian
community the Old Testament that the message of God, the
message of love, was first enunciated. But this same book
has also been misused more than any other book; misused for
the oppression of man by man and for falling out from
harmony with all there is, which is the real state of grace.
Though done in the the name of God it was nothing but
‘taking the name of the Lord in vain’, as it caused mankind
to move away from the ways of love, which are the ways of
God. For how could the message God be one of cruelty and of
oppression-of oppression of man by man and of nature by man?
For is that not an oppression of God,of the God inside all
and everything? For are we not all but parts of God? No book
has been interpreted as much as the Bible in a way to suit
man in his quest for power. Nor has any book been translated
so often. But people do not realise that translation is
interpretation, which means creating a new version and
leaving the original behind. Thus each translation becomes a
message from man to man, a message in which God is forgotten
or His name is misused by the translator-interpreter.
Misused in order to foster his own aims, which are not
always consistent with those of God.
What were the real aims of the scriptures?
To help man grow in body, in mind and in spirit. To liberate
man from the darkness of paganism, from the fear of the
unknown, and show him the way to light and to love. For is
not fear the greatest enemy of love and of liberty? The
message of the Bible, the message of God, was never a demand
for blind obedience based on fear of punishment by a
vengeful God. It was exactly the opposite. The Bible is but
a guidebook which contains a series of signposts showing
mankind the way to freedom, at the same time warning us of
the pitfalls along this road. It also makes us aware of the
road back to slavery, so that we can avoid it. It is a book
about love and freedom, emphasising for the first time that
man is born to light, born to be free, and showing very
clearly that man’s birthright is freedom of choice, free
will. His is the power to choose the way he wants to go. The
Bible indicates the alternatives, but leaves the choice to
man, while emphasising that free will also entails the
maturity to take responsibility for the outcome of that
choice. This is a book that can ultimately lead man out of
infancy and show him the means to grow up. This is, however,
only the first step, as the Bible also shows us the way to
reclaim our divinity, reminding us that man is not just an
intelligent animal. We are not of earth but of God. We are
not created beings but the co-creators of our universe and
all it contains.
This was my personal revelation, and at
the same time a personal eye-opener. It enforced my personal
transformation and showed me the way I should go.
As I have said before, up to the moment of my God
exprerience I have been an atheist, or even worse. After my
experience I had no doubts as to the existence of God, but
now I was full of reproaches. How could the all knowing
Father have tolerated the horrors of the holocaust? How
could he have tolerated the expulsion of the Jews from Spain
500 years before . How could one love such a God? The same
applied to the Torah. Though now I realized the role it
played , I could not understand how that came to be.
After the second revelation I realized
that it was not God who was at fault, but we humans. We are
those who did not understand what God wanted to show us. The
same is true for the Torah, again we are those who
misinterpretated God’s words, his message.
So let me now take you on a journey of
adventure, back to the original Hebrew meaning of the Bible,
and let us explore together what the Bible really said. But
a word of caution. The voyage is fraught with dangers.
Beware, those who set out on it. You may end up a totally
different person from the one you started. I warn you
because that is what happened to me, your - guide. But you
who are courageous enough, fasten your seatbelts and ... off
