The Hidden Temple
What is hidden… is some day always revealed. I think there is not one soul on this planet that has not asked the question, “Who Am I?” Three little words with such complexity and ambitiousness. When something is hidden it simply means it lies deep beneath physical surfaces, requiring those who esteem to know, to make use of the valuable keys given, to seek and find what lies within.
What is hidden within ourselves, is our soul-spirit. Our soul and spirit are not the same. The soul (Nephesh) is our natural awareness of life, which goes through many formations, transformations, and rebirths, while our spirit (Ruach) is the spirit of divine authority for inspiration and understanding through Divine Mind.
That which is hidden must be sought after and discovered if you want to find your innermost truest self. Our soul-spirit is eternal, sacred, where we find our divine sovereignty hidden in that deeper space within us.
German writer Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749–1832), in his works wrote: “You give me space to belong to myself yet without separating me from your own life.” How beautifully stated. What is hidden must have space, for the search which is not near yet not far. God gives us room to stretch out, to roam, travel, discover ourselves while allowing us to have access to His many realms of Himself as above and so below. What is hidden, the realization of who we truly are, who we are once the biochemical shell of our being has been removed. “Follow the Path from Within!”
Nothing Real Can Be Threatened
Nothing real can be threatened. Nothing real can be separated. Nothing real will ever be without. You can never be alone for to be alone is to believe you are separated and apart from the realization of who you truly are… Spirit, your divine source. Your Spirit is the hidden temple that was built within the understanding of Divine Spirit, the only source of all life.
Our inner temple was built cell by cell, just like building a house brick by brick. Our inner temple is made of life-force energy, intelligence, power, and an ego. However, the ego must be clothed, because the circumference of our body is made up of thoughts, which are tailored to express divine mind perfectly.
Within the hidden temple can be found our hidden altar, the heart. If we develop ourselves according to our divine plan, there are certain processes and conditions to be observed. You cannot truly come before the altar without purification, without a mental cleansing, a change of mind, a relinquishment of our sense ways. From the lower consciousness when we create causes of separation, sin, lack, denial, unforgiveness, selfishness and mistrust. We must learn to open our eyes with the courage and boldness of absolute purity within the eternal temple of ourselves. Every person is a high priest in their own consciousness. We must stop visualizing the illusions of fear, realize what has already been placed within us and use it.
So, what becomes real to us can only be found within and what is found outwardly can only be determined by what lies within. What are we bringing to our inner altar, divine love, or disdain, feelings of fear, which can only be found within the lower realms of understanding.
Nothing real can be threatened, nothing real can be separated, and nothing real will ever be without.
