Finding Unity Amidst the Corona Pandemic and Making a Better Life

  • In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
  • The Sabbath the seventh day is called the day of peace.
  • Civilization is coming closer to the Sabbath.

Search to find the Unity of God on earth and don’t give up. Each person living in this world is worried about himself. He is worried about his family. He may also worry about his nation. The world is made up of nations which are divided. Each nations has its own land and its own constitution. The nation exists for the sake of the people. Sometimes the people exist for the sake of the nation.

Guru Janardan taught Yoga in the 1970’s to understand and experience the Unity of God and man. He emphasized that the secret of the Unity of God is hidden in the breath of life and man was created in the image of God.

Nations began with the unit of life called family. The people of the world divided into tribes. The Jewish people were one tribe on the face of the earth. Ishmael was another tribe. Esau the son of Jacob had red hair which the bible relates connected him to Edom which became Rome. Each of these tribes later adopted their own religion through which preserved their separate identity and lineage.

Each tribe has its mother and father. Abraham was the first father of the Jewish people. He was also the father of Ishmael which became the Arab nations. Isaac the son of Abraham had two sons Esau and Jacob. Jacob became the father of the twelve tribes of Israel. Esau was a hunter. Jacob was a scholar.

The Zohar esoteric Judaism which was revealed in the New Age about eight hundred years ago gave credence to these three families of Jacob, Esau, and Ishmael. They all became kings.  There was always a rivalry between them. Jacob was singled out for his intelligence. Jews are known to have high IQ.  Ishmael is singled out in the Bible “and he will be a wild man. His hand will be against every man. And every man’s hand against him.” The Zohar looks at the good that is in Ishmael, that he will not settle for peace which will not include in it belief in God. The people of Ishmael have strong blind faith in God.

These attributes of Ishmael described in the Bible may sometimes cause them to become religious fanatics. Jacob the more intelligent depends more on his intellect for survival less aggressive than Esau and Ishmael. Esau as a child is described in the bible as a “cunning hunter, a man of the field.”  Esau related to Rome the father of the Western nations is cunning which means intelligent which he uses in field work science, technology, and worldly pursuits. Civilization is divided primarily into these three families excluding Eastern civilization which some sources relate to a third marriage of Abraham later in his life where he had several children who he gave to them gifts and sent them away.

There is good in mankind who are the children of Adam and Eve. There is sometimes difficulty finding the good which is hidden in life. The Bible was primarily given to the Jewish people to be for them a guide in life. The Christians the family of Esau took a part of the bible called the New Testament and adapted it for their own family and nation. Ishmael adapted the bible into a new law Sharia written in the Koran by the prophet Mohammed. There is competition between these religions; each one desires to maintain its separate identities. Each one believes that they have a mission to spread their faith in their own way. The Jewish people are more selective concerned about lineage in spreading their faith. Christianity and Islam have more a purpose of being missionaries.

Yoga became known in the world in the last few hundred years. Some people relate to Yoga which is involved with the physical body called Hatha Yoga. The complete picture of Yoga is as a universal faith built upon the understanding of the source of man. According to the Bible man has three sources. The first source is in God the creator the unknown above nature. The second source is Adam the first man who was created alone. The third source is in the marriage of Adam and Eve.

Yoga divides up the body of man in three parts to understand these three sources. The body of man is divided up into the upper part of the body from the waist upward including the head, the lower part of the body from the sexual organs and below.  The lower part of the body which is the most physical and external includes in it male sex organ and female sex organ duality. The upper part of the body from the waist up is Adam before the sin of eating from the tree of knowledge where there is less of a difference between male and female except maybe the female has large breasts. These are the two parts of the body of man which are two worlds with two consciousness. The lower part is the consciousness of the world divided up into families and nations created through procreation. The upper part of the body is connected to the head and the soul within the mind and heart of man where is located the Garden of Eden when the Guru closes his eyes in meditation.

The Lubavitcher Rebbe taught the deepest secrets of life hidden in the Torah with the goal of revealing the essence of life and receiving the Messiah.

At the lower level which is known to every man, God is found by looking up to heaven, our father in heaven. On the higher level of consciousness God is identified as the source of life received through the breath of life. On the third level is included God in heaven and God the soul of man. The unity of mankind is that mankind has one source in God and in Adam and Eve. Mankind is divided into families which each have their own separate religion Judaism, Christianity, Islam. Yoga and progressive Jewish spirituality based upon esoteric teachings of the bible reveal the universal source of man and civilization.

The Bible reveals creation as the work of six days. The seventh day is called Sabbath like it says, In six days God created the heavens and the earth and in the seventh day he rested. The development of civilization is divided into three stages. The first two thousand years are called years of chaos without any unity. Civilization was united at Mount Sinai when the Jewish people received the Ten Commandments. The unification was not yet complete. The Jewish people separated from the rest of the world to become the first monotheistic religion the nation of Zion. The nation of Zion later divided into two separate nations Judah and Samaria shortly after was built the temple in Jerusalem by King Solomon. Christianity and Islam divided the world into two faiths and two empires the Byzantine Empire in Rome and the Ottoman Empire in Constantinople to complete the development of religion in the world.

The Jewish bible is called the Old Testament by Christians. It is the source of religion. Moses gave to the Jewish people the laws of the Jewish nation mostly orally and the written scripture called the Five Books of Moses describing the history of civilization and containing the secrets hidden within the creation revealed in esoteric Judaism called the Kabballa and also through Eastern mysticism called Yoga primarily Juana Yoga. Civilization now is divided into the Old Age and New Age. The New Age emerged from the Old Age. The Old Age focuses on religion and family life. The New Age focuses on realization of God. On the lower level of consciousness which is the world divided up into nations is needed science and technology to feed the world and keep mankind healthy. Corona is a setback but hopefully the Corona Pandemic will end with the new vaccines. Nations are united together by the United Nations in an attempt to prevent war. Already Russia brokered a ceasefire between Armenia and Azerbaijan which hopefully will last.

A deeper peace than can be brokered through the United Nations, is the work of spiritual healers and the clergy. Yoga, Baha”i, Progressive Jewish spirituality, and the Universal Faith are working to connect those that want a deeper peace and connection with God through meditation, prayer, religion, and bible study. This deeper level of peace is through finding the connection to Adam and the Garden of Eden before the sin. The Old Age which is religion is active in giving direction to mankind to live a moral righteous life. The physical world was given to build a dwelling place for God and his attributes which are kindness and peace. The world is the macrocosm and each individual is a world onto itself to be developed and to join with God whose name is Shalom, peace. Sabbath is called the day of peace which is divided up into two parts the eternal Sabbath and the Sabbath which is observed in Judaism the seventh day, Saturday.
