Beyond Good and Evil

How can there be evil in God’s world?

God is good. God is everything. God does everything. Everything proceeds from him. The inevitable conclusion: evil is an illusion. For God at least.

Jehovah Elohim is a consuming fire. (Deut. 4.24)

Jehovah Elohim is a merciful El. (Deut. 4.31)

Evil is part of our reality because we are caught in the matrix of existence that was established with the law of duality. Birth and death. Love and hate. Pleasure and pain. Success and failure. Good and bab. Without good, there’s no bad and without bad there’s no good. Daily, we are broken on the Catherine wheel of want and fulfillment. How to end the suffering? “Stop desiring,” Buddha said. How? You can become an ascetic. Or a rational-stoic person. Or go beyond good and evil.

The Spiritual Mother of Israel

When the question comes up who the mother of Israel is, many think of Deborah, who said of herself that she rose a mother in Israel (Judges 5:7). But the phrase is mother in Israel (AM B’YShRAL), not Mother of Israel, which should be AM YShRAL or AM H’YShRAL. The term AM YShRAL does appear in the Hebrew Testament, but it’s usually lost in translation. Why? Because the title Mother of Israel is assigned to a man – Jacob.

This is the verse in question: Genesis 32:28 And he said, thy name shall be called Jacob no more, but Israel instead: for as a prince hast thou power with God and with men, and hast prevailed.

That is the common translation. If you had a closer look at the original Hebrew wording, you would notice that seven words went missing. Moreover, the phrase for as a prince hast thou power is the translation of the single word saryth, ShRYTh, H8280, which means to have power.

The literal translation: And he told Jacob that his name ceased to be Jacob, and shall now be Mother of Israel, who has power over Elohim’s nation and has prevailed over the nation of males.

How can Jacob be the mother of Israel?

Spiritual Eve

Unlike commonly believed, the woman who was made from Adam‘s rib was Aisha, not Eve. According to the Genesis’ mechanical translation by Jeff Benner, Eve is a title given to Aisha after she was fused with Aish and the two were clothed in a tunic of skin (Gen 3.2).

Who on earth are Aisha and Aish? Read our post The Eden Threesome.

Genesis 3.20: And Adam named Aisha Eve, because she was the mother of all life. 

The second title is inspiring. Eve is the mother of all life, not just Homo sapiens, which must, logically, include plants, animals, and whatever else lives and breathes. How can that be?

Spiritual Adam

Gen 1.27 reveals spiritual Adam: So, Elohim created the human in His own image, in Elohim’s image created He him, male and female created He them.

First of all, Adam, Hebrew אדמ, means human, not man as commonly believed and has a neutral gender or, to be precise, embraces both genders (male and female created He him). Beyond doubt, Adam/humanity is divine and godlike. The inevitable conclusion: Adam isn’t the first male Homo sapiens, but rather spiritual mankind. Homo sapiens, on the other hand, is just the body, vehicle, or spacesuit that humans to have adventures on this and other planets in the physical universe.

So, who or what is spiritual Adam exactly?
