Genesis: Your Journey Home is a groundbreaking book that goes far beyond the usual levels of biblical interpretations, and the ideas taught by religion that are difficult to understand. It bypasses word definition, root studies, historical explanations, and the ideas taught by religion that are difficult to understand but are important.
This book examines the first twenty-five chapters, verse by verse, exploring and revealing the deeper metaphysical (beyond the literal) meaning of the text. Most people know that there are multiple levels of truth contained within the Bible, but until now none have brought forth the ultimate Truth hidden within the mundane, semi-historical writings. Rather than creating new doctrines, this book gently peels back ALL levels of dogmatic views to reveal the true core essence of God, humanity, and the nature of reality. Deep within the ancient biblical text is found the true story (record) of creation, the reason for our very existence, and the history of All That IS.
This book is for those that are searching for authenticity, purpose, and a sense that truth lies somewhere beyond religious teachings but who are reluctant to discard the inherent value of scripture. This book brings comfort, personal empowerment, a new understanding of God, and fosters a renewed sense of responsibility for life. It is a book whose time has come at last, as it brings humanity to a deeper understanding of God and a realization of their ultimate purpose.

Chapter OneGENESIS: 1
Who Is God?
Man has always pondered over the Bible for its historical value, its implications on life, and its wisdom in hopes that he could somehow find the understanding of God and why he is here on Earth. Religions explain the Bible as God's message to his people in what he expects from them. Religions teach that the Bible is God's word entrusted to them in handing down the written word that was taught by our prophets of long ago. Religions say, whatever was written in Scriptures it has been written for our instruction, how we should act, worship, pray, and follow to the letter the words of Jesus. We cannot ever understand the Bible, God, Satan, or why we are even here on earth unless it is studied from an open mind.
If you are one that follows the Bible religiously and have read the literal writings of Genesis, chapters one and two, you would find that these two chapters depict two different stories of creation, and yet both seem to relate to the same beginning. However, the sequence of these two chapters reveals to you the true nature of God as not being of a solitary white person sitting in heaven that judges and condemns you to hell forever because of sin.
What man and religion has overlooked for centuries is that the true nature of God is Absolute, Compassionate, Unchangeable, is in the form of Spirit, and his true make-up is of "infinite pure unadulterated neutral universal energy." Since we were created in His image and likeness, then your core essence is also of Absoluteness, Unchangeable, is in the form of Spirit, and we have a Consciousness that is infinite, pure, and neutral. Therefore, you are a God also.
Genesis, chapters one and two, reveals that every component of creation, including us humans, the air we breathe, and the ground we walk on is part of this "infinite pure unadulterated neutral universal energy" that is taken for God. All angels alike, including us humans, dwell within this absoluteness and unchangeable Spirit, thus we too occupy all space, all dimensions and all time. We, all angels (physical and non-physical), are part of the essence of the wholeness of God, which means we are part of everything that exists, for nothing can exists without Spirit, Consciousness, and this "infinite pure unadulterated neutral energy."
The whole concept of a God who is the sole Creator of man and all what surrounds him puts a tremendous fear within him because God is still an unknown. Religion teaches that God can be studied by anyone that has a thinking capacity to understand the embodiment of a supernatural being that controls all aspects of the universe, including man. Of course, because of our lack of understanding of God and the Universe, we carved out a statue and a likeness to God to worship because we came to fear His power and what he may do with it.
We look at God in hopes that he will forgive us of our sins. In fact, we actually fear we may not even be worthy or do enough in our life to please God, and therefore not reach the Promised Land. Through fear, and the idea of God as a mystery, it comes hard for us to find that safe place in our heart where we can begin to let go of our fear of God. Through religion, we, as man, have created the rules about how to serve this "one God," thus introducing us to heaven and hell. It was through religions that we came to fear God and the Devil. In fact, it is religion that perpetuates the belief in duality (the tree of knowledge of good and bad).
Dear friends, God is willing to become known to us all if we allow it. Look at all the rules about how we must live in accordance to God's will, and yet no matter how hard we try to get it right God still seems to be so far away. The reason we feel that God is beyond our reach is because there is actually no God that rules over you, wants to control you or that God has rules to follow. If you are one who has come to a point in life where God feels isolated to you, then perhaps the time is right to move forward in your study and expand your consciousness beyond the belief that you are only human.
I understand this book may push some buttons because we have been trained to fear the unknown. You only need to look around to see that we actually fear God more than we fear Satan. This is because it is easier to understand what Satan is after but a lot harder to understand what God wants of us. By reading my interpretations of Genesis, you will find God, the Goddess, the Son, Christ, Satan, and you are all one and the same. It is just we are asleep to it. My fellow Gods, it is you, and all souls alike, that embrace's the total energy of "all that was," is, and "ever will be," for all, in its principle form, "God is one" and always has been.
In Genesis 1, the "first six days" that is widely believed to be an actual time element that God created Earth and man, actually pertain to the Perfection of the "Six Attributes of Spirit." They do not relate to a time element at all. Genesis 1, not only introduces you to the "Six Attributes of Spirit," it introduces you to the whole meaning of who you are, for you are primarily Spirit, and you are the God that you have been seeking.
From my study of Genesis, you will discover the God you have always believed in as a being of a solitary personna is actually a false God and the churches are not willing to teach you this knowing because of power and control. In my study, God is more than what you have been taught by religion.
In Genesis 2, the second story of creation introduces you to the Son of God, as many recognize as Jesus because the word "Lord" appears before the name God. However, Genesis 2 will also reveal to you the Son of God is not just about Jesus, rather it is the origin of duality, positive and negative, because it was us souls that split our own Consciousness into a belief that exhibited an opposing energy of good and bad, light and dark, right and wrong as real.
Genesis 3 introduces you to the Satan principle that everyone fears. However, once you understand who the "serpent" really is you will cast out your fear of him for forever, never again afraid of a devil. In Genesis 3, you will learn the fall of man is actually the loss of one's awareness of a knowing that you, God, the Goddess, the Son, Christ, and Satan are all one and the same. You will learn that it was your ultra Ego consciousness, symbolized by the serpent in the Garden, rebelling against your "oneness" nature. This rebellious act of long ago led to you condensing your pure neutral energy into a more solid form that caused you to forget God's Kingdom (the Garden).
Through time and space playing in the field of duality (the tree of knowledge of good and bad), you lost your trust as a God because you isolated yourself in a mind of reasoning, perception, and logic that led to forgetting your royal status as a God too. When this happened, you began to place your trust in everything outside of you because it brought some understanding to what you were feeling and experiencing.
Genesis, chapter's one through four, represents the groundwork of the Creator of "all that was" and is today, including us humans in the flesh and the world we live. Genesis One reveals to you that mankind is not just a mortal being; he is a God as well. When you learn to study the Story of Creation through the perspective of the heart center and through memory rather than through the mind of logic and reason, you will discover who God really IS and how the Creator of "all that is," is actually you, all souls, becoming an active Energy Force in all things made.
The Book of Genesis has nothing to do with the material Earth and man as our religions, grandparents, and parents have taught us. Rather, it reveals what the Masters and Jesus have always proclaimed: You are a God also! When we read the verses from the Book of Genesis and their interpretations, they will reveal to you that God is no longer an unknown. Rather, God is very visible and full of life and clarity.
Genesis (1:1): "In the beginning when God created the heavens and the earth."
Creation assumes there is a Creator, and though Jesus referred to this Creator as "Father," you will discover from these interpretations that God is not, nor has He ever been, an old wise white bearded man sitting in heaven waiting to judge or punish you for your sins. Instead, you will find that the mystery of God is known as a "universal measureless mind field of pure unadulterated universal neutral energy" that is Infinite, having no beginning or end, and occupies all Space and all Time as an "unknown principle" until you or your spirit activates it into taking on some form.
Thus, God as you know him is nothing other than a "consciousness field of pure neutral universal energy" that we angels use to create what we experience in life. The wisdom of knowing who God is was hidden from us until we evolved enough in consciousness to discover that God is not a solitary entity sitting on a throne – for he is made up of a "universal measureless mind field of pure unadulterated neutral energy" that is infinite, having no beginning or end. It is us souls that are the Life-giving Spirit that brings the breath of life into God. This breath of life is actually the Divine Breath that comes from our true core identity.
For example: "God creating the heavens" is nothing more than a state of consciousness where we come to realize that this mysteries God is "infinite, universal, pure, unadulterated, and is of a "neutral energy" that your Spirit uses to create with, and therefore is the true essence of you. You could say your spirit is the wife portion for this "infinite universal unadulterated energy" that Jesus called Father.
"The earth" is made of form, therefore it pertains to bringing into existence a desire that caused the activation of a concept or a belief system that was expressed by us Souls, the true creators, thus fulfilling that desire. Therefore, the beginning was not earth, man, or heaven it was the desire of Spirit to manifest a movement in consciousness, thus producing within you a belief system so strong you ended up forgetting your true identity. This belief implanted a consciousness deep within you where you began to idealize two levels of awareness and consciousness, "the heavens and the earth."
"Heaven" is the realm of pure ideals, such as divine understanding, abundance, joy, healing, oneness, harmony, and absolute love without conditions, judgment, or rules, as in perfect and without time, space, good, or bad. "Earth" is the realm of form, duality, conditions, rules, and judgment. In other words, thought forms, lies, and illusions.
Genesis (1:2): "The earth was a formless wasteland, and darkness covered the abyss, while a mighty wind swept over the waters."
We all look at Earth solely from a material point of view because it feels so real, even though it is actually just a physical dimensional realm that we souls play. This is the result of one's choice of perception and how one believes that everything must be literal and complex, including the characters and stories in the Bible. However, when you look at "earth" from a spiritual position, the wisdom of God is revealed and understood as quite simple.
It is that you evolve as the authoritative power of God instead of God as an intellectual concept located somewhere outside of you in some heaven. Therefore, the metaphoric meaning of "earth" is in the form of a concept, a desire, a thought form, the beginning of an idea, a belief system, or a perception, and a dimensional realm that we souls created so as to feel and experience our creations. So why does earth symbolize this? It is because earth is of material substance. Earth did not just suddenly appear out of nowhere; it first had to be a desire, then an idea, or a thought pattern of the Creator(s).
Look at the word "formless:" It is a synonym for lacking a thought pattern or a formative desire. The word "wasteland" describes an abstract ideal or a concept of something, such as earth, which had no form in the beginning. Earth was manifested in form because it was the desire of the Creator(s) (us Souls) and it was through that desire that earth became a living planet.
The word "darkness" means – ignorant of the fact about no conscious desires, thoughts, or activities, as far as the Prime Creator (us Souls) was concerned. "The darkness covered the depths" in Gen. 1:2 tell you how deep, ignorant, and unaware you were from any desires, ideas, beliefs, or thoughts of activity coming from the Creators (you, me, and all souls). Though you have been taught that God has always existed and that there is no beginning or end to this Infinite Energy, it actually remains as a "universal measureless mind field of pure unadulterated neutral energy" until your Spirit activates a desire of some kind, thus giving life to your thought patterns in taking on form.
Many of us would say that the Infinite One, we call God, is the Source of all Energy and all that one sees, feels, taste, smells, and touches. What is not taught is this energy that everyone uses, is at first, in a "universal pure state of neutrality." This means energy at its core is not energy until your Spirit (all Souls) activates it to take shape. Yet, this "pure neutral energy" is always there, surrounding you, even though you cannot see it, and it is without form until activated by you, the creator. Therefore, the reference of the "Father-God" that Jesus submits to in the Bible is actually this "universal measureless mind field of pure unadulterated neutral energy" that is infinite, and it exists motionless and inactive, waiting for your spirit (Mother-Goddess part of self) to move upon it with a "desire."
Now, in order to condense the true meaning of who God is, I will use the metaphoric language of calling this "universal measureless mind field of pure unadulterated neutral energy" and your "Spirit" as the "father-mother God." This means your spirit is without limits because it has no beginning or end. To realize your full potential, you need to understand the wisdom of your Spirit (Mother-Goddess) is without limits, or bound to a beginning, or an end.
Considering "the mighty wind" as a movement of air, then air becomes the element that allows any created form, like your physical body, to express the purpose behind the creation. Therefore, the symbolism of "wind" is the expression of the "infinite creator of all that was," which is your spirit. In order to be infinite, your spirit has to be part of the "Father-God" that is pure and has no form until your spirit (Mother-Goddess) activates some type of form through "desire."
In other words, before any form or manifestation can take place, like a physical body, your spirit is required to breathe life into it as a desire. Thus, Spirit's first "desire" was not earth or man. It was the forming of your consciousness into an active principle that set the stage for the creating of your mind and ultra ego. It was not about earth or your physical body, rather your spirit coming into an awakening as infinite and creative.
By verse two ending with "sweeping over the waters," it signifies life because water symbolizes your spirit in motion as the source of life, giving life to your desires. We have all heard about the "water of life" given in John 4:14, Thus, "water" is representative of your spirit, which means your true essence is of Spirit and Consciousness first and foremost because without Spirit you would have no beingness or life. It is that "infinite life-giving spirit" within you that keeps the "father-mother God" alive and coherent, as one with you.
Genesis (1:3): Then God said, "Let there be light," and there was light."
This is not the physical light of the sun or the moon, rather the "illumination" and the "awakening" of your own spirit long ago in the activating of your consciousness into motion where you ended up creating a "desire" to expand your state of being. Hence, out of your own spirit, you made a movement in consciousness and gave rise to a "desire" that set the stage for your consciousness to become an active force in all things created by you and us souls.
When you look at God's Consciousness as a metaphor for "all that was" in the beginning and "is now," including man, then you can understand why Jesus called his fellow humans "brother" and "sister." It's not that you are part of a God that religions describe, you are a God where all souls together make-up the "Godhead" that everyone prays to.
Genesis (1:4): "God saw how good the light was. God then separated the light from the darkness."
The "light" in this verse is about us souls acknowledging our own spirit as the creative life giving force in bringing about our own consciousness to an active phase, thereby generating a desire within self to know self. This was the first movement, the first act of creation that was, as we souls became active in consciousness before earth ever was earth. Not only did we become active in consciousness long ago, we were once aware that we are part of the "father-mother God," and because of that awareness, our consciousness became the focus of our creativity.
