The Akashic Field

Two Levels of Divinity

The affirmation that the gods spoken of in the Bible are in fact super-human beings from other planets does leave a very important question unanswered. 

Namely, if those beings the Bible calls, gods, are only super-human beings they must admittedly be creatures.  If they are created, we come back to the problem, who is their creator.  Obviously, a created being, even the first, cannot be the creator of all things.

If one reads the Bible with an open mind, one comes to the same conclusion as the philosophers, Plato and Plotinus held, who taught that above the Gods of traditional belief was, "The One" also called God. "The One" is the impersonal unifying principle of divinity. 

The following quote is also from Wikipedia. To believe that there is “The One” seems necessary to the human mind, for without that belief we cannot imagine the origin of the universe.  However, to try to fit what the Bible says about Jehovah into what is “The One” is not at all possible.

When Moses met Jehovah at the burning bush Jehovah told him to go and tell the Israelites that the God of their forefathers had sent him, Moses said, they will ask me which God of our forefathers sent you.  Jehovah replied I am who I am.  Much has been written, and more has been preached, about this statement by Jehovah to Moses. 

We have always heard that it means, I am the self-existent, eternal God.  I was so surprised to learn that it does not mean this at all.  Karen Armstrong writes, He certainly did not mean, ... that he was self-subsistent Being. Hebrew did not have such a metaphysical dimension at this stage, and it would be nearly 2000 years before it acquired one. God may have meant ... "Never you mind who I am!"
Karen Armstrong. A History of God, Ballantine Books, New York.

For far too long we have, without thinking, believed what preachers and priests have told us.

The Akashic Field

The following two paragraphs are duplicates of part of a post I did in April 2012. 

Erwin Laszlo in Science and the Akashic Field: An Integral Theory of Everything writes: The akashic records (akasha is a Sanskrit word meaning "sky", "space" or "aether") is a term used in theosophy ... to describe a compendium of (mystical) knowledge encoded in a non-physical plane of existence. These records contain all knowledge of human experience and the history of the cosmos. They are metaphorically described as a library; other analogies commonly found in discourse on the subject include a "universal supercomputer" and the "Mind of God”.

Mystics and sages have long maintained that there exists an interconnecting cosmic field at the roots of reality that conserves and conveys information, a field known as the Akashic record. Recent discoveries in the new field of vacuum physics now show that this Akashic field is real and has its equivalent in the zero-point field that underlies space itself. This field consists of a subtle sea of fluctuating energies from which all things arise: atoms and galaxies, stars and planets, living beings, and even consciousness. This zero-point Akashic-field-or "A-field"- is not only the original source of all things that arise in time and space; it is also the constant and enduring memory of the universe. It holds the record of all that ever happened in life, on Earth, and in the cosmos and relates it to all that is yet to happen. 

To try and fit that creating force into the Bible narrative is, to say the very least, confining the nature of that force.   The church throughout history has faced the problem of reconciling the Bible with the teaching that there is only one God since the God written about in the Bible does not meet the criteria of the Omni everything God.  Conversely, the Omni everything Akashic Field cannot be made to fit into what the Bible says about Jehovah.

Concerning this same thought, Madam Blavatsky wrote, the English (word) God … may be said to represent the Creator of physical "Humanity," on the terrestrial plane; but surely it had nothing to do with the formation or "Creation" of Spirit, gods, or Kosmos.
The Secret Doctrine, H.P. Blavatsky. Vol. 1, Bk.2, ch. 4.

Earlier I wrote that the Bible is not without what seem to be contradictions; the following is another example of this. On the one hand, we have verses such as, No one has ever seen God. John 1:18.  Not that anyone has seen the Father. John 6:46.  You cannot see my face, for no man can see my face and live. Ex. 33:20.  

On the other hand, we have verses such as, I saw the Lord sitting upon a throne. Is. 6:1. After this I looked, a throne stood in heaven, with one seated on the throne, and he who sat there appeared like a jasper. Rev. 4:2-3.

The answer to this dilemma could be that the Akashic Field, that force which created the universe, which includes the saucerians of the Bible, is the God that is invisible.  However, the God of the Jews, whose name is Jehovah is physically visible.  It is Jehovah, not the Akashic Field, that was seen by Jacob, Isaiah, Moses, Daniel and John. 

In spite of the fact that Jacob said that he had seen the Lord and Moses, Isaiah, Ezekiel and Daniel later wrote that they had seen the Lord; Saint John, who must have known the Old Testament, wrote, No one has seen God at any time. 1 John 4:12.  If we believe that the Bible does not contradict itself, we are forced to believe that John was not writing about the same God that his ancestors claim to have seen.  Maybe John was writing about the Akashic Field and not about Jehovah.

The Epic of Gilgamesh was probably written before any part of the Bible was written, and makes some statements that are in total accord with the theories presented in my upcoming posts.  Therefore, I will quote from The Epic of Gilgamesh from time to time.  Considering that Moses probably copied, or at least borrowed from that epic, it seems incongruous to so completely reject that epic while accepting the writings of Moses as being completely without error.
