THE MOMENT WE ENTER THIS WORLD WE ARE GIVEN A NAME, A SURNAME, A FAMILY, A COUNTRY TO LIVE IN, A PARTICULAR SCHOOL TO GO TO, CERTAIN TRADITIONS AND BELIEFS, ETC., AND NONE OF THESE ARE CHOSEN BY ANY OF US. IT USUALLY TAKES US THOUSANDS OF LIVES BEFORE WE´RE AWARE OF WHAT THIS LIFE IS ALL ABOUT, MAKING US SEE WE NEED TO FREE OUR CONSCIENCE OF PHYSICAL, EMOTIONAL AND MENTAL ELEMENTS SO THAT OUR CONSCIENCE BECOMES A PURE, VIRGINAL ONE, READY TO JOIN OUR SOUL, JESUS CHRIST HIMSELF.
EACH ONE OF US HAS GOT VALUABLE QUALITIES THAT NEED TO BE SHARED WITH ALL OUR BROTHERS OUT THERE. LET´S IMAGINE AT SOME POINT IN OUR LIFE WE FINALLY FOUND OUT WHAT THIS LIFE WAS ALL ABOUT, AND AT THE SAME TIME WE SAW MOST PEOPLE WERE CONFUSED, AS TO WHAT TO DO OR NOT TO DO WITH THEIR DAILY LIVES, NOT KNOWING WHAT MEANING LIES BEHIND THEIR STAY HERE. LET´S IMAGINE THAT PERSON WITH THAT VALUABLE KNOWLEDGE DECIDED TO USE IT JUST TO BECOME WELL-KNOWN AND RICH, NOT SHARING IT ON A DAILY BASIS WITH ALL OUR BROTHERS. AND LET´S IMAGINE GOD WAS NOT HAPPY AT ALL WITH THAT PERSON´S ATTITUDE, SO GOD LET THAT PERSON KNOW THROUGH DIFFERENT CIRCUMSTANCES THAT WASN´T THE WAY TO EVOLVE TOWARDS BEINGS OF LIGHT WHOSE PURE CONSCIENCE JOINS OUR SOUL TO LATER ON CONNECT WITH JESUS CHRIST ON A DAILY BASIS FROM HERE TO ETERNITY.
“THE PROBLEM WITH THE PEOPLE FROM THE TOWER OF BABEL WAS THAT THEY INSISTED ON MAKING A NAME FOR THEMSELVES, INSTEAD OF SPREADING THE WORD OF GOD, THE MYSTERY OF OUR CONSCIENCE, THE WHEEL OF ENCHANTED LIVES, BEFORE WE REACH OUR ORIGIN, WHICH IS THE UNION WITH OUR SOUL, JESUS CHRIST.. BABYLON WAS THE CRÉME DE LA CRÉME OF THE SPIRITUAL AND INTELLECTUAL JEWISH PEOPLE. THERE WERE THE KEEPERS OF THE MOST IMPORTANT ANCIENT ESOTERIC KNOWLEDGE WORLDWIDE. THAT CONVERGENCE TOOK PLACE UNDER THE HIDDEN GUIDANCE OF THE SPIRITUAL CENTER WHOSE MISSION WAS TO PROMOTE THE EVOLUTION OF THE HUMAN BEING AND MANKIND AS A WHOLE, AND WHICH IS MENTIONED AS THE KINGDOM OF GOD IN THE GOSPELS”” ( LA TORRE DE BABEL Y LA JARRA DE ALABASTRO BY JUAN LUIS LLÁCER AND JESÚS DE BETANIA). GOD´S PLAN WAS TO HAVE THE PEOPLE IN THE TOWER OF BABEL SHARING THAT VALUABLE KNOWLEDGE WITH ALL HUMAN BEINGS WORLDWIDE. ONCE GOD FOUND OUT THE OBJECTIVE OF THE TOWER WAS TO BECOME WELL-KNOWN HE DECIDED TO BLOCK THEIR ARROGANCE, CONFUSING THEIR LANGUAGE SO THAT THE TOWER COULDN´T BE FINISHED. THEY NEVER FINISHED IT OFF BECAUSE THEY COULDN´T UNDERSTAND EACH OTHER. FOR EXAMPLE THEY DIDN´T KNOW WHETHER THEY WERE ASKING FOR WATER OR FOR STRAW INSTEAD, OR WHEN THEY ASKED FOR A PICK THEY WOULD TAKE A SHOVEL, SO THERE WERE MANY ACCIDENTS FROM THE MOMENT THEY STARTED SPEAKING MULTIPLE LANGUAGES. IT WAS THEN WHEN THE TOWER OF BABEL WAS DOOMED AND WHEN THE PEOPLE, THE 10TH GENERATION AFTER THE FLOOD, STARTED CALLING THE CITY BABYLON. IN HEBREW “CONFUSE” IS TRANSLATED AS “BALBEL”. THIS WORD, WHEN IT´S VOCALIZED WITH AN “A” GIVES RISE TO “BLA-BLA” IN ORDER TO DESCRIBE VAIN, SENSELESS HOT AIR. BABYLON IS DEPICTED AS A BIG, STRONG AND CORRUPTED CITY WITH A LOT OF PROSTITUTION GOING ON, AS THE FOLLOWING 2 WELL-KNOWN PEOPLE DID:
1.”MARTIN LUTHER MENTIONS IT WHEN TALKING ABOUT ROME, PAPACY HEADQUARTERS, IN HIS COMMENTS ON GENESIS THIS WAY: “ROME, PAPACY HEADQUARTERS, ¿A NEW BABYLON?” ”.
2.”FYODOR DOSTOYEVSKY IN THE KARAMAZOV BROTHERS SAYS THE FOLLOWING: “BECAUSE SOCIALISM IS NOT JUST THE PROBLEM FOR UNEMPLOYMENT BUT ALSO A PROBLEM FOR ATEISM AND FOR THE TOWER OF BABEL, SINCE IT WAS BUILT WITHOUT A GOD, NOT TO REACH HEAVEN FROM HERE BUT TO BRING HEAVEN HERE”.
HISTORY AND FEAR GO HAND IN HAND THROUGHOUT TIME. THE MOST IMPORTANT HISTORICAL FACT RELATED TO FEAR IS WHEN THE THREE MARYS AT THE TOMB, MARY MAGDALEN, MARY OF COPLAS AND MARY SALOME BROKE THE PROMISE THEY MADE TO JESUS OF TELLING EVERYONE ABOUT JESUS´ RESURRECTION, ONCE THEY SAW HIM RESURRECTED, ALL DRESSED IN A WHITE TUNIC. ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF FEAR AND HISTORY IS THE ONE OF JOHN THE BAPTIST, WHO WAS BEHEADED, AND YET HE WAS A REALLY GOOD MAN WHOM JESUS LOVED. HE WAS A MAN WHO WAS BAPTIZING EVERYONE IN THE RIVER JORDAN AND JESUS WAS ONE OF THEM. “THE ACCOUNT DESCRIBES HOW; AS HE EMERGES FROM THE WATER, THE HEAVENS OPEN AND THE HOLY SPIRIT DESCENDS ON HIM “LIKE A DOVE”. A VOICE FROM HEAVEN THEN SAYS: ” YOU ARE MY SON, THE BELOVED; WITH YOU I AM WELL PLEASED” (JOHN THE BAPTIST. WIKIPEDIA) WHY THIS FEAR AND SECRECY? LET´S IMAGINE IT ALL HAD TO DO WITH THE FEAR POLITICIANS AND AUTHORITIES HAD EXPLAINING PEOPLE MESSAGES FROM THE SPIRITUAL WORLD, SINCE SACRED REALITIES CAN´T BE TRADITIONALLY DESCRIBED. AS MOST WORLDWIDE AUTHORITIES HAPPEN TO BE AGNOSTIC THEY ARE INCLINED TO OMIT ANYTHING RELATED TO THE ESOTERIC PANORAMA, SINCE THEY THEMSELVES REJECT IT, OR BECAUSE THEY CAN´T DESCRIBE IT, AND THEY FEAR THE UNKNOWN AND WHAT OTHERS MIGHT THINK OF THEM.
WHEN JESUS CHRIST TALKS ABOUT HIS JEWISH PEOPLE HE MEANS ANYONE – NOT JUST JEWISH PEOPLE – WHOSE “POWERFUL MINDS SAFEGUARD ONE OF THE GREATEST ENIGMAS OF OUR MANKIND” (LA TORRE DE BABEL Y LA JARRA DE ALABASTRO BY JUAN LUIS LLÁCER Y JESÚS DE BETANIA). JESUS CHRIST´S PEOPLE ARE ALL HIS FOLLOWERS, THAT IS, ALL OF YOU AND I ARE HIS JEWISH PEOPLE, SINCE WE FOLLOW HIS LAWS AND TALK ABOUT THEM TO OUR BROTHERS WHENEVER CHANCES COME. WE, JESUS´ FOLLOWERS, TALK ABOUT THE 7 MOST IMPORTANT MIRACLES PERFORMED BY HIM:
1.“THE CONVERSION OF WATER IN WINE IN THE WEDDING AT CANA,
2.THE HEALING OF A ROYAL OFFICER´S SON,
3.THE HEALING OF A PARALYTIC,
4.THE MULTIPLICATION OF BREAD AND FISH,
5.JESUS WALKING ON WATER.
6.THE HEALING OF SOMEONE BLIND SINCE BIRTH
7.AND THE RAISING OF LAZARUS” (LA TORRE DE BABEL Y LA JARRA DE ALABASTRO BY JUAN LUIS LLÁCER AND JESÚS DE BETANIA).
“UP UNTIL THIS POINT IN THE BIBLE, THE WHOLE WORLD HAD ONE LANGUAGE – ONE COMMON SPEECH FOR ALL PEOPLE. THE PEOPLE OF THE EARTH BECAME SKILLED IN CONSTRUCTION AND DECIDED TO BUILD A CITY WITH A TOWER THAT WOULD REACH TO HEAVEN. TO BUILD, THE PEOPLE USED BRICK INSTEAD OF STONE, AND TAR INSTEAD OF MORTAR. THEY USED “MAN-MADE” MATERIALS, INSTEAD OF MORE DURABLE “GOD-MADE” MATERIALS. THE PEOPLE WERE BUILDING A MONUMENT TO THEMSELVES, TO CALL ATTENTION TO THEIR OWN ABILITIES AND ACHIEVEMENTS, INSTEAD OF GIVING GLORY TO GOD. BY BUILDING THE TOWER THEY WANTED TO MAKE A NAME FOR THEMSELVES AND ALSO PREVENT THEIR CITY FROM BEING SCATTERED. GOD CAME TO SEE THEIR CITY AND THE TOWER THEY WERE BUILDING. HE PERCEIVED THEIR INTENCTIONS, AND IN HIS INFINITE WISDOM, HE KNEW THIS “STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN” WOULD ONLY LEAD THE PEOPLE AWAY FROM GOD. HE NOTED THE POWERFUL FORCE WITHIN THEIR UNITY OF PURPOSE. AS A RESULT, GOD CONFUSED THEIR LANGUAGE, CAUSING THEM TO SPEAK DIFFERENT LANGUAGES SO THAT THEY WOULD NOT UNDERSTAND EACH OTHER. BY DOING THIS, GOD THWARTED THEIR PLANS. HE ALSO SCATTERED THE PEOPLE OF THE CITY ALL OVER THE FACE OF THE EARTH. SOME SCHOLARS BELIEVE THAT THIS MARKS THE POINT IN HISTORY WHERE GOD DIVIDED THE EARTH INTO SEPARATE CONTINENTS. GOD SAYS IN GENESIS 11:6 THIS: “IF AS ONE PEOPLE SPEAKING THE SAME LANGUAGE THEY HAVE BEGUN TO DO THIS, THEN NOTHING THEY PLAN TO DO WILL BE IMPOSSIBLE FOR THEM”. GOD REALIZES THAT WHEN PEOPLE ARE UNIFIED IN PURPOSE THEY CAN ACCOMPLISH IMPOSSIBLE FEATS, BOTH NOBLE AND IGNOBLE. THIS IS WHY UNITY IN THE BODY OF CHRIST IS SO IMPORTANT” (THE TOWER OF BABEL-BIBLE STORY SUMMARY).
“ONCE THE BABYLONIANS WERE SCATTERED AROUND THE WORLD THEY STOPPED BUILDING THE CITY. THUS THE CITY WAS CALLED BABEL, AS IT APPEARS IN THE KING JAMES VERSION OF THE BIBLE. THE STORY OF THE TOWER OF BABEL EXPLAINS THE ORIGINS OF THE MULTIPLICITY OF LANGUAGES – ABOUT 5.000 TODAY. GOD WAS CONCERNED THAT HUMANS HAD BLASPHEMED BY BUILDING THE TOWER TO AVOID A 2ND FLOOD, SO GOD BROUGHT INTO EXISTENCE MULTIPLE LANGUAGES. THUS, HUMANS WERE DIVIDED INTO LINGUISTIC GROUPS, UNABLE TO UNDERSTAND EACH OTHER. GENESIS 10:10 STATES THAT BABEL FORMED PART OF NIMROD´S KINGDOM. THE BIBLE DOES NOT SPECIFICALLY MENTION THAT NIMROD ORDERED THE BUILDING OF THE TOWER, BUT MANY OTHER SOURCES HAVE ASSOCIATED ITS CONSTRUCTION WITH NIMROD. GENESIS 11:9 ATRIBUTES THE HEBREW VERSION OF THE NAME, BABEL, TO THE VERB BALAL, WHICH MEANS TO CONFUSE OR CONFOUND IN HEBREW. THE FIRST CENTURY ROMAN-JEWISH AUTHOR FLAVIUS JOSEPHUS SIMILARLY EXPLAINED THAT THE NAME WAS DERIVED FROM THE HEBREW WORD BABEL, MEANING “CONFUSION”. THE GREEK FORM OF THE NAME IN THE SEPTUAGINT, BABYLON, IS ULTIMATELY FROM THE NATIVE AKKADIAN BAB-ILIM, “GATE OF THE GODS” IN REFERENCE TO THE GREAT TEMPLE-TOWERS (THE ZIGGURATS) OF ANCIENT SUMER (BIBLICAL SHINAR). THE RUINS OF THE CITY OF BABYLON STAND NEAR HILLAH, BABIL GOVERNORATE, IRAQ. THE ACCOUNT IN GENESIS MAKES NO MENTION OF ANY DESTRUCTION OF THE TOWER. IN THE MIDRASH (IN JUDAISM IT´S THE BODY OF EXEGESIS OF TORAH TEXTS. IT´S A METHOD OF INTERPRETING BIBLICAL STORIES THAT GOES BEYOND SIMPLE DISTILLATION OF RELIGIOUS, LEGAL OR MORAL TEACHINGS. IT FILLS IN GAPS LEFT IN THE BIBLICAL NARRATIVE) IT´S SAID THAT THE TOP OF THE TOWER WAS BURNT, THE BOTTOM WAS SWALLOWED, AND THE MIDDLE WAS LEFT STANDING TO ERODE OVER TIME” (TOWER OF BABEL-WIKIPEDIA). THE DUTCH CORNELIS ANTONISZ DREW THIS ETCHING SHOWING US HIS VISION AS TO FLAVIO JOSEFO´S DESCRIPTION OF THE TOWER OF BABEL BEING KNOCKED DOWN”:
(LA TORRE DE BABEL BY JACQUES VICARI).
“the book of jubilees contains one of the most detailed accounts found anywhere of the tower: “and they began to build, and in the fourth week they made brick with fire, and the bricks served them for Stone, and the clay with which they cemented them together was asphalt which comes out of the sea, and out of the fountains of wAter in the land of shinar. And they built it: forty three years were they building it; its breadth was 203 bricks, and the height of a brick was the third of one; its height amounted to 5433 cubits and 2 palms, the extent of one Wall was thirteen stades (Jubilees 10:20-21, charles´ 1913 translation)” (the tower of babel-wikipedia).
“The jewish-roman historian flavius josephus, in his antiquities of the jews (c.94 ce), recounted history as found in the hebrew bible and mentioned the tower of babel. He wrote that it was nimrod who had the tower built and that nimrod was a tyrant who tried to turn the people away from god. In this account, god confused the people rather than destroying them because annihilation with a flood hadn´t taught them to be godly: “now it was nimrod who excited them to such an affront and contempt of god. He was the grandson of ham, the son of noah, a bold man, and of great strength of hand. He persuaded them not to ascribe it to god as if it were through his means they were happy, but to believe that it was their own courage which procured that happiness. He also gradually changed the government into tyranny, seeing no other way of turning men from the fear of god, but to bring them into a constant dependence on his power. now the multitude were ready to follow the determination of nimrod and to esteem it a piece of cowardice to submit to god; and they built a tower neither sparing any pains, nor being in any degree negligent about the work; and, by reason of the multitude of hands employed in it, it grew very high, sooner than any one could expect; but the thickness of it was so great, and it was so strongly built, that thereby its great height seemed, upon the view, to be less than it really was. It was built of burnt brick, cemented together with mortar, made of bitumen, that it might not be liable to admit wAter. When god saw that they acted so madly, he did not resolve to destroy them utterly, since they were not grown wiser by the destruction of the former sinners in the flood. “The flood took place 1656 years after the creation of this world. Therefore people feared the year 3312 to come since it meant 1656 years would have gone by after the flood, and that it would bring some kind of punishment together with it” (the tower of babel-wikipedia). That´s the reason why they started building the tower of babel so that they could be protected from any other floods or other kinds of punishments.
“There are several medieval historiographic accounts that attempt to make an enumeration of the languages scattered at the tower of babel. Because a count of all the descendants of noah listed by name in chapter 10 of génesis (lxx) provides 15 names of japheth´s descendants, 30 for ham´s, and 27 for shem´s, these figures became established as the 72 languages resulting from the confusion of the tower of babel” (the tower of babel-wikipedia).
Throughout history there HAVE always been people who were in charge of either hiding or distorting the truth. When it comes to the tower of babel, if we travel about “a hundred kms south of Bagdad we´ll SEe absolutely no piece left of such tower. However, there are facts backing up the existence of the tower of babel back then, and these are some of the well-known people´s texts and research regarding such tower:
1.“the text of Herodoto (460 bc) tells us about the measurements of the tower just as it was at the time. “in the middle of the temple there is a solid tower. On top of this one there is another tower, and on top of this a third one making 8 towers in all. The ramp which takes us to the 8 towers is built on the outside in a circle around all the towers, and towards the midst of the ramp there is a flat Area with seats to sit down and relax for a while, when going up to the top tower. In the last tower there´s a big temple” (the 9 books of history, book ii. Herodoto). “round the base of the tower of babel were small temples and chapels dedicated to the various gods of the babylonians. In the western chambers stood the couch of the god and the Golden throne mentioned by Herodoto, with other objects of great value. The couch was stated to have measured 9 cubits by 4 (15 ft. By 6 feet 8 inches)” (tower of babel-wikipedia).
2.In the 18th century, a general cOnsul from england in Bagdad, claudius james rich, drEW and describeD an overcrowding of bricks, made of clay and shred Straw. Every 5 or 6 courses cane mats were alternated with them at the joints. The length of each side is about 90 metres, and the width is 3 times bigger than its height. This base of the tower of babel left was stripped off of hundreds of thousands of baked bricks, which had fallen apart from the different levels and which were used to build cities and villages around there”:
(la torre de babel by Jacques vicari).
3.“ANDRÉ PARROT –ARCHAEOLOGIST AND CHIEF CURATOR OF THE NATIONAL MUSEUMS IN FRANCE – IN ZIGGURATS ET TOUR DE BABEL (1949) SAW THE RUINS OF THE TOWER OF BABEL, AND TELLS US “THE DEMOLITION OF THE TOWER WAS A MIRACULOUS OPERATION: THE EARTH OPENED UP AND SWALLOWED ONE THIRD OF THE TOWER, AND FIRE FALLING DOWN FROM HEAVEN DESTROYED ANOTHER THIRD OF IT. WHAT´S LEFT OF IT STILL IMPOSES RESPECT, SINCE ITS SHADOW TAKES THE SPACE OF A 3-DAY-HIKE PATH. IF YOU GO UP TO THE TOP THE TREES IN THE FOREST CAN BE SEEN AS IF THEY WERE GRASSHOPPERS”” (LA EPOPEYA DE LAS GRANDES CONSTRUCCIONES BY RENÉ POIRIER.1965)
4.“CHALDEAN HISTORIAN BÉROSE (3RD CENTURY BC) ALSO SAW THE RUINS OF THE TOWER OF BABEL. HE BACKS UP THE IDEA THAT DUE TO THE ARROGANCE OF BABYLONIANS VIOLENT WINDS DESTROYED THE TOWER. MÁSPERO MENTIONS BÉROSE IN HISTOIRE ANCIENNE DES PEUPLES DE LÓRIENT (1886)” (LA EPOPEYA DE LAS GRANDES CONSTRUCCIONES BY RENÉ POIRIER.1965)
5.“SIR ROBERT KER PORTER (1777-1842), MAN OF LETTERS, PAINTER AND BRITISH CONSUL IN BAGHDAD IN 1820, ALSO SAW THE RUINS OF THE TOWER OF BABEL” (LA EPOPEYA DE LAS GRANDES CONSTRUCCIONES BY RENÉ POIRIER.1965)
6.“Antiquity narrators such as diodoro SicULO and his predecesSor estrabon – GREEK HISTORIANS (1ST CENTURY B.C.). although NEITHER OF THEM SAW ANY remains of the tower of babel, Estrabon ALLOWS US to go back in time to when Alexander of macedon (356 B.C.- 323 B.C.) wanted to destroy the tower. Removing the debris meant having ten thousand men working for 2 months. However, Alexander THE GREAT could not finish it off because he soOn became ill and short after that died” (la torre de babel by Jacques vicari).
7.“FlaviUS JOSEPH’S the jewish historian at the end of the 1st century A.c. even contemplateD revenge AS A PLAUSIBLE REASON BEHIND THE TOWER OF BABEL: “Nemrod promiseD to protect the people against god´s second punishment, a second flood, and so he builT a tower so tall that wAter cOULDn´t reach it. Nemrod even tOOK revenge against his parents´ DEATH, AND All of a sudden terrible winds knocked over the tower of babel”. Seudo filon, another historian from that time, says “god caused significant trembling, and fire swirls cameo out of blast furnaces“: (la torre de babel by Jacques vicari).
8.In the talmud (=the basis for all codes of jewish law. It translates literally as “instruction” (talmud-wikipedia) ) we find this significant testimony: “a third of the tower of babel was destroyed, a third was knocked down and another third still exists today” (la torre de babel by Jacques vicari).
9.The english businessman John eldred rawwolf and, The rabbi benjamin of Tudela (xii century) thought they saw the remains of the tower of babel.
“THE TOWER OF BABEL WAS PROBABLY BUILT IN THE 1ST CENTURY BC, AND THE CITY OF BABYLON BECAME HUGE IN THE 3RD CENTURY BC. MANY ARTISTS PAINTED THE TOWER OF BABEL, LIKE ST. SABINO, DUKE BEDFORD (15TH CENTURY), PIETER BRUEGHEL THE ELDER (C. 1525-1569), GUSTAVO DORÉ ” (LA EPOPEYA DE LAS GRANDES CONSTRUCCIONES BY RENÉ POIRIER.1965)
changes the destiny of mankind according to our acts. Corruption was King in babylon and the tower was the result of babylon´s arrogance.
“According to the midrash tradition, the tower of babel can also be a war machine against heaven forces: “they never slow down their work pace and from those really tall floors they shot arrow against heaven, which came down all covered in blood. Right after this, they regained hope and yelled: “ we ´ve massacred all that is in heaven”: . Right after this confusion of languages and the destruction of the tower took place. “linguists count 5.000 languages, live and dead, and could even double the number” (la torre de babel by Jacques vicari).
Let´s imagine the 1st descent of god to the top of the tower and the city illustrates the state of pure conscience, of our soul. Let´s imagine the 2nd time god descended to the triple earthly world – physical, emotional and mental – creating multiple languages and spreading them out into their territories illustrates our multiple lives with our earthly ties before we´re finally aware of our pure conscience, so that it can join our soul. Let´s imagine the tower of babel was a symbol to help us understand the Wheel of enchained lIves before we reach awareness of what is pure and real, and what´s earthly and useless, in terms of reaching a pure conscience free of restraints to make it posible for us to meet our soul, that is, jesus christ. Let´s imagine the fact that the people spoke just one language meant that “they had reached some kind of connection between their mind sensitive to the external signs, and their abstract mind, sensitive to ideas” (LA TORRE DE BABEL Y LA JARRA DE ALABASTRO BY JUAN LUIS LLÁCER & JESÚS DE BETANIA). Let´s imagine those people wanted to use that valuable quality of unification as to what their will ordered. Let´s imagine that egoistic way of using that valuable quality of unification would deny them the opportunity of such quality and mystery being spread all over the world. The tower symbolizes an earthly personality. The gOspel of mark (7,6) puts into isaiah´s mouth one of jesus christ´s quotes, (29,13), which expresses clearly the way people from the tower of babel were right after they were scattered around: “these people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me”. The lips are the external sign whereas the heart is the inner sign of the honor given to god. When our mind is enlightened our mental conscience wakes up to a true reality, and our perception becomes observation of reality as it really is. The tower represents the existencial world where the evolution of mankind takes place. The people described in the tower of babel is the remote precedent of what we historically know as the jewish people (isaiah 6,5): “I am a man of impure lips and among impure lips I live””.
“THERE ARE OTHER TOWERS, EVEN OLDER ONES THAN THE TOWER OF BABEL THAT STILL EXIST. THIS IS THE CASE OF TCHOGHA ZANBIL, IN ELAM, EASTERN MESOPOTAMIA, WHICH DATES BACK TO ABOUT 7 CENTURIES BEFORE THE RESTORATION OF THE TOWER OF BABEL. It was built by untash gal, King of Anshan and susa in the 3rd century b.c.” (la torre de babel by jacques vicari).
Let´s imagine the reason why tchogha zanbil is one of the best kept towers in the near east is because there was no corruption there.
Throughout history all the countries who rejected god were punished. Only god´s laws can keep us in line with moderation. The tower of babel would have existed today if it had had a noble goal while it was being built. “The tower of babel suggests an ascetic trip to the center of each one of us. It´s a convergent path for all mankind that moves forward through levels towards the main unity tucci talks about” (la torre de babel by Jacques vicari).
The book la torre de babel by Jacques vicari WAS FINALLY PRINTED IN 2006 IN MEXICO. THE FACT THAT IT´S TAKEN THIS BOOK SO LONG TO BE PRINTED SHOULD MAKE US ALL WONDER WHY. IS IT MAYBE THAT THERE ARE SOME PEOPLE OUT THERE WHO REALLY TRY TO DO ANYTHING THEY CAN TO OBSTRUCT THE PRINTING OF BOOKS SUCH AS THIS ONE, SINCE THEY´VE GOT IMPORTANT INFORMATION AS TO WHAT GOD EXPECTS FROM US?
“JURIS DOCTORS WERE ONE OF THE 3 GROUPS WHO ADDRESSED THE FOLLOWING WORDS TO JESUS CHRIST WHILE HE WAS ON THE CROSS: “HE SAVED OTHERS. IF HE´S KING OF ISRAEL HE SHOULD COME DOWN FROM THE CROSS RIGHT NOW, AND THEN WE WOULD BELIEVE IN HIM”. LUKE REFERS TO THEM IN LUKE 11,52: “YOU´RE IN BIG TROUBLE, JURIS DOCTORS, WHO HAVE TAKEN CONTROL OF THE DOOR KEY OF KNOWLEDGE. YOU DIDN´T GET IN AND YOU DARED BLOCK ANYONE ELSE GETTING IN AS WELL”. THE DOOR KEY OF KNOWLEDGE IS THE SACRED KNOWLEDGE” (LA TORRE DE BABEL Y LA JARRA DE ALABASTRO BY JUAN LUIS LLÁCER & JESÚS DE BETANIA).
THE SAME AS PRIESTS, JURIS DOCTORS AND ELDERS BETRAYED JESUS CHRIST CONDEMNING HIM THE SAME MANY PRIESTS HAVE DONE ALREADY SINCE WE KNOW SOME PRIESTS BETRAY JESUS WHEN THEY BREAK OUR LORD´S LAWS, REQUESTING PROSTITUTION AND SEX-ABUSING CHILDREN. MANY TEXTS ABOUT JESUS CHRIST WRITTEN BY CORRUPT PRIESTS CHANGED JESUS´ LIBERATING MESSAGE FROM THE SACRED LEVEL TO THE EARTHLY ONE WHERE JESUS´ MESSAGE WAS LINKED TO POWER AND ALLIANCE.
MANY PEOPLE ARE LOST IN THEIR MILLION THOUGHTS, IN THEIR PILE OF WORK, IN THEIR GREED, ARROGANCE, LUST, ETC., NOT EVEN WONDERING WHETHER THAT KIND OF LIFE IS RIGHT OR NOT. HOW CAN ONE KNOW WHAT IS RIGHT AND WHAT IS NOT? WELL, EACH ONE OF US NEEDS TO GO BEYOND IT, SO THAT WE CAN “FEEL THE UPWARD ATTRACTION OF THE LIGHT CONSCIENCE OVER THE MOON CONSCIENCE” (LA TORRE DE BABEL Y LA JARRA DE ALABASTRO BY J.L. LLÁCER & J. DE BETANIA). HOW CAN THE INNER CHRIST CONSCIENCE ENLIGHTEN US? THERE IS ONLY 1 WAY AND IT´S THIS ONE: HAVING “A PURE CONSCIENCE, A CONSCIENCE NOT SUBJECTED TO ANYTHING, EQUALS A FLASHLIGHT” ( LA TORRE DE BABEL Y LA JARRA DE ALABASTRO BY J. L. LLÁCER & J. DE BETANIA).
JESUS TOLD HIS DISCIPLES TO SPREAD THE WORD OF OUR LORD LETTING ALL OUR BROTHERS KNOW ABOUT OUR LORD´S LAWS. Jesus´ disciples and we, jesus´ followers, are what jesus called “assembly of Israel” since we´re not afraid of giving testimony of the divine presence within us, and that presence together with the awareness of it is what gives us the real identity each of us should aim at during our time here. Having full mind enlightenment will only come from god. The ones granted with that enlightenment are the ones who can give testimony of jesus christ presence within us. Those are the ones who being part of the universal truth are the ones as well who enjoy being part of the universal freedom quite intensely TO SAY the least, because jesus christ is their spiritual identity. It´s time to talk about jesus christ in a universal way, it´s time to tell everyone that the real identity of each one of us is our true affinity for our lord, the divine essence inside us. We can “create within us the conditions which will let our lord, our soul, our real self appear and be healed once and for all. Only when our personality notices our soul, our source of life and of conscience can we heal our insatisfaction whose origin is the lack of sense in our own life”. Perceiving our soul will be our whole source of health and direction of life. Our soul is our pure conscience, able to act LUCIDLY AND powerfully. Our soul can reach that state of pure observation, and when that happens we´re able to hear the message our soul wants to share with us. “our soul´s goal here is learning to be in this world without belonging to this world”, that is, we´ve got to do something really good while we´re here in order “to get back that full conscience of our belonging to the spiritual kingdom” (la torre de babel y la jarra de alabastro by j.l. llácer & j. De Betania).
When we´re aware of the restraints our society places on us making us value material things, prestige, fame and status, and leading us into underestimating the spiritual world is when we can start helping our conscience become independent of all those restraints. It´s our duty to make it happen. Only then we´ll give our soul the necessary opportunity of having a personal history. We need to transcend this temporary evolution. We need to go beyond “the physical, emotionAL and mental worlds. These 3 inferior worlds are submitted to time, at birth and death. Only our soul being present in our life can put an end to the chaining of lives and submission to the time factor. Our conscience needs to identify itself with our soul, not with our changing moODs. Our true soul is pure conscience, which doesn´t listen to any restraints. Our priority needs to be our soul, not our physical body, our emotions nor our thoughts. “that pure light of the conscience of the soul can only be born into an illuminated and virginal mind. That is the condition to be fully free of all ties. It´s then when our mind is ready for receiving the spirit, as we´re told in the gospels (matthews & luke), which talk about jesus´ infancy” (la torre de babel y la jarra de alabastro by j.l. llácer & j. De Betania).
Each one of us needs to encounter consciously what is sacred inside us, our soul. That joy will take place once the process of getting rid of our false identities has been accomplished successfully. Rejecting all the false identities on us and going back to our spiritual origin, jesus christ, we´ll be on the right track to get where we most want to, our soul, our pure conscience, so that we can contact jesus christ, our inner divine presence. We need to go beyond our mind and connect with our abstract mind. God wants us to use the qualities we have to be shared with all our brothers. If the quality is having been granted the gift of knowing jesus christ god wants us to give testimony of our own soUL, through our words and acts on a daily basis. It´s not enougH if we, having been granted the gift of the holy spirit and of the love of jesus christ sit in our sofa, do our activities and keep the spiritual knowledge to ourselves, knowing most of our brothers out there are thristy for some kind of guidance, or are even unaware of their thirst and we need to remind them of it. We need to tell them our goal herE is to transcend our earthly mind in order to reach the abstract mind which will guide us to a higher level where we can meeT our peaceful true origin, our soul, jesus christ. It´s in jesus christ where we find ourselves, where we get to know our real identity, a pure soul full of love like jesus christ´s.
Our society today tends to idolize football players, actors, singers, millionaires, etc., ignoring those attitudes are typical of earthly beings who have not evolved into spiritual ones. We ignore our soul since our conscience is dependent on the physical, emotional and mental factors around US. ACCORDING TO ST. THOMAS AQUINAS (1225-1274) THE 5 SENSES FAIL, AND ONLY FAITH CAN WORK WONDERS HELPING US CONNECT WITH THE SPIRITUAL ORIGIN WITHIN US. We are unaware that we aren´t free but puppets of this earthly world, and so we don´t lay the groundwork for our soul to join our conscience, since our conscience is not pure but subjective. We are all descendants of the people of the tower of babel, of the black sheep of Israel who get stuck in our material world and don´t care about what´s going on inside ourselves, where the divine presence is waiting to find the right conditons of our evolution as to our conscience, so that the connection with the spiritual world can be carried out, and we can irradiate spiritual strength to our brothers. Once we know that endless source of life within us, because we travelled to the very center of ourselves, we need to tell the others all about it. This way we´ll be developing our humanity fully. Once we wake up to our pure conscience we´ll be using our third eye,”the speculative invisible eye which provides perception beyond ordinary sight” (third eye-Wikipedia). Then each of us will be god´s people who live here following jesus christ legacy.
The following two awsome 2015 movies sunset song by terence Davies, and the sense of wonder by Eric besnard show us two examples of two good people with a soul, the protagonists, chris guthrie (Agyness deyn), and Pierre (benjamín LAVERNE) RESPECTIVELY. CHRIS AND PIERRE DO A REALLY GOOD JOB TAKING ON THE ROLE OF PURE CONSCIENCES. HIGHLY RECOMMENDABLE!
The song innuendo by queen describes what we´re talking about as well:
While the sun hangs in the sky and the desert has sand,
While the waves crash in the sea and meet the land,
While there´s a wind & the stars & the rainbow,
´till the mountains crumble into the plain.
Oh yes, we´ll keep on trying,
Tread that fine line,
Oh, we´ll keep on trying,
Just passing our time.
While we live according to race,color or creed,
While we rule by blind madness & pure greed,
Our lives dictated by tradition,superstition,
THROUGH THE EONS AND ON AND ON.
Oh yes, we´ll keep on trying,yeah,
We´ll tread that fine line,
Oh, oh, we´ll keep on trying,
´till the end of time,
´till the end of time.
Through the sorrow all through our splendor,
Don´t take offence
At my innuendo…
In this great song FreddIE mercury is trying to tell us that we need to transcend thESE earthly ties, which prevent our conscience from being pure and therefore from connecting WITH our soul. We´re ready to fly now, but let´s fly high to CATCH A HIGH five when time comes from high christ. LET´S ALLOW JESUS CHRIST TO STEAL THE SHOW IN OUR HEARTS. Those two amazing movies, innuendo, the lord inside us, and so much, it all makes a total count of more grip to set about going for it!
