Favor and disgrace make one fearful
The greatest misfortune is the self
What does “favor and disgrace make one fearful” mean?
Favor is high; disgrace is low
Having it makes one fearful
Losing it makes one fearful
This is “favor and disgrace make one fearful”
What does “the greatest misfortune is the self” mean?
The reason I have great misfortune
Is that I have the self
If I have no self
What misfortune do I have?
So one who values the self as the world
Can be given the world
One who loves the self as the world
Can be entrusted with the world:
The Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia Hebraic script of Genesis 1:14-1:19:
Please click here, carefully scroll down to Genesis verses 1:14-1:19, and examine closely the differences and similarities between my script above and the Hebrew from an academic Hebrew bible website. Now, imagine how much of the original Revelation can be distorted by one single act of transmission.
Sitting meditation on this one single act of transmission (~67 bpm):
14 Said God, let there be Light in the expanse of the heavens to separate between the day and between the night so that they shall be for signs and for seasons and for days and years. 15 (Fall out, come to pass, and become) give lights for in the extended surface expanse (to for, in regard to, with reference to) the heavens to shine on the land and it was so (
4:30 pm) 16 and (subject) made God the two Lights the big, great the Light to the day for the dominion of the Light the small for the dominion of the night and the stars 17 and (subj.) put them God extended surface in the of the heavens to give Light the to wayiten on the land/earth birquiya 18 and to dominate in day and in night to divide between the Light and between the darkness and (subj) God saw that is was good 19 it was evening it was morning day fourth day ( 5:52 pm)
Today, I learned how to drop my heart rate from ~137 bpm to ~80 bpm during my month long withdrawal from Zyprexa (10 mg) and lithium (1200 mg). As a chemist, I found a heptagon in Zyprexa’s molecular structure. As a Christian, I found a heptagon in Genesis 1:14-1:19. This is an interesting synergy indicating the unified geometric structure of all Creation and Nature. It is absolutely essential that I continue my training in Science and Religion to advance my ability to employ Mindfulness in my life as I continue to suffer from what is called bipolar disorder I. I have faith in Reason. I have the reason to look to Faith for practical methods to help manage my own brain chemistry with diligent and rigorous Practice, Medication, and Prayer. Despite what Western Medicine says, I have faith that there is a cure to bipolar disorder I. This cure lies in the practical application of NO thought. Stop thinking, and all will be revealed.
The education to accomplish this “Simple” task of understanding the meaning of Genesis 1:14-1:19 (will cost me/cost me) at least ~$ 14,000.00 and 1/32 of my Life. Today, I feel the expense was more than worth it to eat from the Tree of Knowledge to begin to properly understand God’s Revelation. The meaning of which is that the Tree of Life is the proper tree to eat from. I believe it is essential to give students foundational training in the interpretation of texts to give them the ability to think for themselves about the truth or Truth of religious texts like the Torah, the Holy Bible, the Tao Te Ching, or the Holy Qu’ran.
My Hebrew teacher is Adam Stokes. I am grateful to him for his gifts to me in the form of Knowledge.
Praying meditation on the one single act of transmission (~81 bpm):
Thus, the Light of God encoded in Genesis 1:14-1:19 lowered my heart rate from ~137 bpm to ~67 bpm to ~81 bpm. Zazen and prayer both are more effective at reducing acute symptoms of manic episodes as a result of bipolar disorder I.
