The Seven-Headed Dragon: World Commerce

 
It's time to see the Bible in a whole new light. It's time to shake up tired, sleeping JudeoChristian religion out of its materialistic stupor. This might just blow you away.
 
I started tracing this 7-headed dragon back to the very serpent in the Garden of Eden. This could be a whole book, but here's just a taste of the mysteries:
 

A Quick Summarizing Intro:

 
Taking out a loan is mistrust that everything you need is in the Present Moment. 
 
In the Hebrew text of the Bible, we can clearly see that the Serpent in the Garden of Eden is a Creditor (as in Banker).  We can see that most all the words for serpent in Hebrew refer to debt and lending.  The serpent lends at interest to the couple in the Garden of Eden.  This is taking the Fruit of the Tree of Knowledge of Credit and Debt.  And the son born of this loan is called Cain, which means "purchase". 
And Cain, "Purchase", is the very first Seed of Commerce and the very first Murderer.  The word Canaan is a pun outgrowth of the word CainCanaan means "Trade", or "Commerce" in the Hebrew Bible.   
This taking of forbidden Fruit is the beginning of a debt that keeps reproducing 7-fold (7-fold vengeance), as the Biblical Seven-Headed Leviathan, as the Canaanite Seven-Headed Lotan, as the Greek Nine- or Seven-Headed Hydra.  In the Hebrew, the Great Serpent Leviathan also clearly refers to Debt.  The root of Leviathan is Levi, which means "to bind" and "Debt".  Levi is the Israelite tribe that brought in the Levitical Law of Moses, the Law of Credit and Debt.  Leviathan is the Beast of Commerce.  Leviathan is threaded through the Bible from Genesis to Revelation, as the Seven-Headed Dragon. 
 

Serpent Coiled Around the Tree, Serpent Coiled Around the Pole

 
Now, let's see how the Serpent invading Eden is the Creditor, lending at interest (Click on the links to see for yourself the original Hebrew Masoretic texts with lexicons & their meanings, courtesy of Blue Letter Bible):
 
In *Genesis 3:13 Eve says, "The serpent *[נחש nahash] deceived [נשא nasha'] me."
 
 
The Hebrew Bible is filled with plays on words totally missed in translation. The word nasha means both 'deceive' and 'lend on interest,' or 'be creditor'.     
*[In Strong's Lexicon, 'deceive' is נשא (nasha'), {Srong's # 5377}, which also means 'lend on interest' {Strong's 5378} which is found in 1Sam 22:2, Neh 5:7, Psa 89:22, Isa 24:2, all of which, like the Koran, strongly denounce lending at interest}.]
 
Now look at the Hebrew word for snakebite, nashak [Strong's 5391], which also happens to mean both 'lend' and 'borrow on interest' (Num 21:6-9, Deut. 23:19, Prov. 23:32, Jer. 8:17, Amos 5:19, etc).
'The serpent bit me,' Eve says.
'The creditor charged me interest,' Eve says.
 

Lifting Up the Serpent in the Wilderness

 
 
Yes, we see that the word for 'serpent,' nahash, is also a wordplay with the word for 'deceive,' nasha.  Nahash also means 'divination,' and also 'copper' or 'bronze,' the basic currency *[Strong's 5174 & 5175], just like our English word 'cobra' is related to 'copper'. You can see this play on words taken into the story of Moses lifting up the Bronze Serpent in the wilderness:
 
 
So Moses made a bronze [nahashet] serpent [nahash], and put it on a pole; and so it was, if a serpent [nahash] had bitten [nashak] anyone, when he looked at the bronze [nahashet] serpent [nahash], he lived. (Numbers 21:9)  
 
If a serpent had bitten anyone can literally be translated, "if a serpent had become creditor to anyone..."! 
 
Now it gets even more intriguing.  A variant spelling of nasha [5375], pronounced the same, means 'to lift up, bear up, carry, be exalted, bear sins, atone for sins.' And the related word for 'debt' is nashi [5386].  Now you can see what Jesus is referring to when he says,
As Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of Man be lifted up. (John 3:14)
 
This word nasha is used first by Cain in Genesis 4:13,
This punishment is more than I can bear [nasha].'
 
And, as we have seen, the word 'Cain' itself is a pun on the word canah, which means 'purchase'! Again, the play on words:
And she conceived and bore Cain, and said, I have purchased [קנה (qanah)] a man from Yahweh." (Gen. 4:1)
Now we can see why there is a Jewish interpretation that Cain is actually the son of the Serpent! 
 
Cain is the son of purchase, of credit & debt,
while Abel is the son of Grace.
 
[Cain also means 'reed' or 'spear', and, in fact, shares the same ancient borrowed root as our English word, cane.  And Abel means 'emptiness.'  Clearly there is a
male-female, phallus-yoni allusion happening here of the spear and the empty hole, which can be demonstrated in the Hebrew scriptures.  And the symbology of the cane reed throughout the Bible is an immense, intriguing subject in its own, related to this, but deserving its own essay or book to come later.
Cain also means jealousy.  Jealousy, comparer of values, is the murderer of the just.]

Land of Canaan, Land of Commerce 

 
Ancient Canaan is the location of present-day Israel.  Leviathan is the Serpent of Canaan. We see how Canaan means "trade" or "commerce" in the Hebrew Torah. We have seen the play on the words for 'Cain' & 'purchase' in Genesis 4:1. The Hamitic land of Canaan, called Palestine and Israel today, was wedged between two great Hamitic superpowers, Babylon and Egypt, and two great continents. This made it the land of Trade - the land of war, oppression, and deceit - the products of Trade. And it was out of this that the rage of the Bible is born.
 
 
Now you can see, more and more, studying both the Bible and history, that the Canaanites were not a literal race of people, but were the Spirit of Commerce that possessed the people.  Indeed, scholars & archaeologists have generally been confused as to what culture "Canaan" actually refers to.   Now we begin to understand one of the very themes of the Torah which has been so troubling for thousands of years: to invade Canaan and wipe out every vestige of Canaanite from the land! The Canaanites were a tribe of seven clans descended from Canaan, a nation of seven heads (Deuteronomy 7:1, Genesis 10:15) , the Dragon of Seven Heads.
 
The later Jewish prophets confirm that Canaan refers to a mentality, a spirit, the System of Commerce, not to a physical race of humans:
 
Wail, you inhabitants of the market district!
For all the merchant people [canaanites] are cut down;
All those who handle money are cut off.
(Zephaniah 1:11) 
 
And there is no merchant [canaanite] any more in the temple of Yahweh of Hosts in that day!

The Canaanite: the Merchant: the Zealot  

 
And Jesus' clearing the merchants from the temple  is a direct act-out of the above Zechariah scripture. Wiping out the Canaanites!  Jesus' driving out the merchants from the temple, apparently on two different occasions, is so important it is mentioned in all four Gospels (Matthew 21:12, Mark 11:15, Luke 19:45, John 2:15) .
 
Indeed, we even see a play on words, referring to the Canaanite, in the above John passage (2:17), in which John quotes Psalm 69:9: "For zeal [qanat (קִנְאַת)] for your house has consumed me." Yes, the Hebrew word for zeal is qanat (קִנְאַת). The word meaning zealot is translated into Greek in other Gospel passages as kananaios, and translated into English as Canaanite in many English Bibles, as in Simon the Canaanite in the King James Version of Matthew 10:4.
 
 
Zeal is motivation is passion.  There are two types of zeal that motivate humans.  One is the zeal of self-credit (including money), and one is the zeal of love.  Because we humans want motivation, want life, the zeal of fanatical religion often fools us, because it is most often not the zeal of love but the zeal of self-credit.  The proof is quite obvious: zealous religion almost always goes hand-in-hand with big-money politics and corporations.  People are unhappy with "conservative" religion because its zeal is for money.  People are unhappy with "liberal" religion because it has no zeal at all, no life!  So people swing from one to another until they are sick of all religion.  Neither the conservative nor the liberal religion have the zeal of love, which is what all living things crave, because such zeal is the very Essence of Life.  Once in a while, somebody like George Fox, Mohandas Gandhi, or Martin Luther King arise, with the true Zeal of religion, a zeal that breaks out of sectarianism and appeals to people of all faiths and non-faiths: "having favor with both God and people.
 
Thus, Jesus' mission was to wipe out the false zeal (Canaanite) and replace it with the True Zeal.  Wipe out artificial life and replace it with Authentic Life.
 
Canaanite zeal persecutes anyone who questions it
 
According to the Markan account (Mark 11:18), this event was what began the conspiracy to kill Jesus. 
 
 
Hasn't this threat of conscience against commerce been the true cause of most, if not all, persecutions, assassinations and wars, from ancient times right up to the present?
 
The Jewish prophets Ezekiel and Hosea both  declare that their very own people, with their corrupt religion, given over to greed and world commerce, are Canaanites and the children of Canaan (the Amorites and the Hittites):
and say, 'Thus says the Lord GOD to Jerusalem:
"Your birth and your nativity are from the land of Canaan;
your father was an Amorite and your mother a Hittite.
The Lord also brings a charge against Judah,
and will punish Jacob according to his ways;
according to his deeds he will recompense him.  
He took his brother by the heel in the womb,
and in his strength he struggled with God. . .  .
A cunning Canaanite!
Deceitful scales are in his hand;
he loves to oppress. 
And Ephraim said,
"Surely I have become rich,
I have found wealth for myself"
 

Our Fight Is Not Against Flesh And Blood!

 
This contradicts the usual conventional Christian and Jewish interpretation that the Canaanites are some other race of people.  Those who think they are fighting Canaanites are fighting themselves.  Is the fight is against flesh and blood (like Palestinians or Arabs or Islam, or, conversely, against Europeans or Judaism or Christianity) or is the fight against principalities and powers (greed and world commerce, which hijack religion and culture)? 
 
This commercial mentality, this banker's mentality, found its highest development in the middle-eastern land of Canaan, and continues strong, more powerful than ever, to this day, spread over the entire world.  It has, so far, found its strongest power by masquerading itself as "Judaism" and "Christianity," and loves to boast about "God and country" as it conquers and sells out the world, destroying cultures and the environment.  Look around: who, indeed, are the great bankers and corporate CEOs of the world?  Who are the ones who give greatest support to bankers and corporations? 
 
But please, beware: Again, I'm not talking about race or even religion, but I'm talking about a mentality, a spirit, that hijacks religion and culture, that hijacks yours and my very own minds.  Never be a Fascist Nazi, never forget, Our fight is not against flesh and blood (Ephesians 6:12).  
   

I Am Who I Am, Come to Fulfill the Law    

 
The great religious mystery is that the Levitical law is to become fulfilled, to become obsolete, at the End of Time.  And how can the End of Time be anything but the Eternal Now, the Day of Jah?  If the End of Time were in the Future, then it would be part of time, no?  The End of Time is Now, and the fulfillment of all Time and all Law is Now.  The Hebrew word for God (יהוה) means the Eternal Present.  Money does not and cannot exist in the Present Moment, in Reality! This is not opinion.  This is simple observation, if we but look inside.  Nevertheless, if you are still having a hard time grasping this concept, see What Money Is and What Money Is Not.  When the mind is Now, Money/trade has served its purpose and becomes obsolete. All written law becomes fulfilled, obsolete, Now.  All that we think, all that we think is ourselves, all that we think is real, is anihilated, crucified, when we enter into Now, beyond thought.
 
 
Behold, Now is the accepted time; behold, Now is the day of salvation.
(2 Corinthians 6:2
 
Most assuredly, I say to you, the hour is coming,
and now is,
when the dead will hear
the voice of the Son of God;
and those who hear will live.

The Redeemer
Redeem: To buy back, repurchase
[Merriam Webster]
The Eternal Coin, the Eternal Redeemer, is the Coin that represents nothing else but itself.  It represents Now and purchases Now.  A Symbol is dead and represents something else.  The Eternal Word represents itself, Now, Here,
I Am
The Eternal Word represents itself, Here & Now, the Present (God) because it is the Present (God).
 
The word that can be spoken is not the Eternal Word (Tao Te Ching, verse # 1)
It is the Name above every name that can be uttered.
All symbol, all money, all words, are illusion. 
 
 

Noah's Son, Ham: Incestual Father of World Commerce  

 
If there is still doubt about the Eden serpent being the creditor, let's take another look at how the later Jewish prophets saw the serpent.   Compare the Hebrew texts of Eve's statement in Eden to the statements of the Jewish Prophets, Amos and Habakkuk (click on the links to see the full Hebrew text):
 
 
Yes, it becomes clear the Jewish prophets saw that the serpent as the banker and the snakebite as the loan, the oppression of the nations!  Check out the context of the Habakkuk passage above (2:4-15): 
"Behold the proud, File:Ksenophontov noah.jpg
His soul is not upright in him;
But the just shall live by his faith.
 
Woe to the Wicked
"Indeed, because he transgresses by wine,
["he transgresses by wealth", according to the Dead Sea Qumran text.  To the Jewish sages, booze and snake venom symbolize the toxic intoxication of wealth.]
He is a proud man,
And he does not stay at home.
Because he enlarges his greed as hell,
And he is like death, and cannot be satisfied,
He gathers to himself all nations
And heaps up for himself all peoples.
"Will not all these take up a proverb against him,
And a taunting riddle against him, and say,
'Woe to him who increases
What is not his--how long?
And to him who makes himself rich with loans?
Will not your creditors [נשך nashak, literally, those who bite you], rise up suddenly?
Will they not awaken who collect from you?
And you will become their booty. 
 Because you have plundered many nations,
All the remnant of the people shall plunder you,
Because of men's blood
And the violence of the land and the city,
And of all who dwell in it.
 'Woe to him who covets evil gain for his house,
That he may set his nest [קן qen, a play on words, the root of the name Cain and the word for purchase קנה (qanah)] on high,
That he may be delivered from the power of disaster!
. . . .
'Woe to him who builds a town with bloodshed,
Who establishes a city by iniquity!
Behold, is it not of the Lord of hosts
That the peoples labor to feed the fire,
And nations weary themselves in vain?
For the earth will be filled
With the knowledge of the Credit of the Lord,
As the waters cover the sea.
 
'Woe to him who gives drink to his neighbor,
Pressing him to your bottle,
Even to make him drunk,
That you may look on his nakedness!
 
Drunkenness, we now see, is the intoxication of wealth.  And the Book of Proverbs again confirms that the Hebrew sages saw this intoxication as the snakebite of interest:
 
 
Who has woe?
Who has sorrow?
Who has contentions?
Who has complaints?
Who has wounds without cause?
Who has redness of eyes? 
Those who linger long at the wine,
Those who go in search of mixed wine. 
Do not look on the wine when it is red,
When it sparkles in the cup,
When it swirls around smoothly;
At the last it bites
[
נשך nashak]
like a serpent
[נחש nahash]
,
And stings like a viper.
 
 
Remember the story of Noah and his son Ham, after the flood, how Noah got drunk and Ham "saw the nakedness of his father" (Genesis 9:18-27)?  Now we see the meaning of this story coming to light!  Recall how the Torah calls Ham the father of Canaan, Canaan who is Commerce:
And he drank of the wine, and was drunken [שָׁכַר shakar] and he was uncovered in his tent.
And Ham, the father of Canaan [Commerce], saw the nakedness of his father (Genesis 9:21-22)
To dispel any remaining doubt, check out the above Hebrew word for drunken, [שָׁכַר shakar], a pun homonym of  שָׂכַר (sakar), which means (1) to hire, (2) to hire oneself out, (3) to earn wages!
 
Ham, in fact, according to the Bible, is the father of all the commercial empires of the ancient world, such as Sumer, Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, Ethiopia, Sheba, the Hittite nation, etc. (Genesis 10:6-20).  Some of these empires included white Indo-Europeans (the Hittites), the darker middle eastern (the Egyptians, Babylonians, Assyrians, and Accadians), and black Africans (The Ethiopians and Nubians), showing, by the Bible's account, that Ham is the father of Commerce among all races, not the father of any single race.   
 
We now understand that booze represents intoxicating usury and commerce, the venom of the snakebite!  Noah becomes drunk on "wine," and
Ham looks upon his father's "nakedness", meaning that (all silly euphemisms aside), according to the Torah itself (Leviticus 20:11), Ham fucked his own mother.  Now we finally see the utter severity of Ham's transgression.  Ham continues to fuck the Earth.  I say this with total purity of heart and urgency.
 
 
The enigmas of the Hebrew Bible are coming clear, aren't they?  
 
Lending at interest to your neighbor is spiritual incest, spiritual intoxication, and spiritual snakebite poison. 
 
Usury gave birth to the great, impressive, oppressive empires of the world.  It is the source of debt, of the anxiety you likely feel right now. 
 
You know this, don't you?  This anxiety of debt is the moving force of civilizations all over the world, the children of Ham. 
 
It begins with the seed of faithlessness inside every person, faithlessness that things are not okay as they are, faithlessness that you have to take out a loan for something other than what you have. 
 
Whatever is not from faith is debt

 Leviathan, the Seven-Headed Serpent of the Old Testament (Tanach)  

 

Leviathan is the Hebrew rendition of Lotan, found in Ugaritic texts, where he is slain by Baal:

“When you smite Lotan, the fleeing serpent,
finish off the twisting serpent,
the close-coiling one with seven heads."
( KTU 1.5:I:1-3, D. Pardee in CS, 1.265.  See The International Standard Bible Encyclopedia, p. 109)
Yes, see for yourself how the Bible quotes this Ugaritic ("Canaanite") text, Yahweh being the Jewish renditon of Baal, who slays Lotan/Leviathan:  
 
IN that day Yahweh with His severe sword, great and strong,
Will punish Leviathan the fleeing serpent,
Leviathan that twisted serpent;
And He will slay the dragon that is in the sea.
(Isaiah 27:1)
 
You broke the heads of Leviathan in pieces,
And gave him as food to the people inhabiting the wilderness.
(Psalm 74:14)

Hercules battling the Hydra

Leviathan [לִוְיָתָן] shares the same Hebrew root [לָוָה]  as Levi, [לֵוִי] meaning "to twist, bind, join."  Again, notice the word-play in the passage that speaks of the birth of Levi, the father of law:

"'Now this time my husband will be bound [לָוָה] to me,...' therefore he was named Levi." (Gen. 29:34).

 
Levi was the father of the tribe of Levi, the Priestly Clan, the establishers of Levitical Law, starting with the three Levite siblings called Moses, Aaron, and Miriam (Numbers 26:59). Law is thought of Credit and Debt. Law is control of Credit and Debt. The Levitical Law, as all law, was given to manage people under Thought of Credit and Debt, a way of keeping disease in check until the cure comes called the cure of Grace, to keep the loan at bay until it can be totally forgiven.

Back to the story of Cain, we see allusion to the 7-headed Leviathan (Hydra, Beast) with the 7-fold vengeance (pay-back) of Cain (Genesis 4:15 & 24).

And the LORD said to him, "Therefore, whoever kills Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold." . . . .

If Cain shall be avenged sevenfold, Then Lamech seventy-sevenfold."

Now it becomes clear that this credit-and-debt 7-head Serpent is poking his heads up as the ouroboros Leviathan in Deuteronomy 28, particularly in these verses!

 "The LORD will cause you to be defeated before your enemies; you shall go out one way against them and flee seven ways before them; and you shall become troublesome to all the kingdoms of the earth. . . .  He shall lend to you, but you shall not lend to him; he shall be the head, and you shall be the tail.   (Deuteronomy 28:25, 44)

 
 

Money Is Law.  Law is Money Management.

Gratis is Anarchy.  Anarchy is Grace

  
The intrigue continues!  In the Epistles of Paul in the New Testament, the Greek word for money is nomisma and the word for law is nomos, sharing the same root meaning "to parcel out." There is no need for law when there is no money or barter, and there is no need for money when there is no law - for both are one and the same - control of credit and debt, reward and punishment. When you start trusting Nature again "to parcel out", then you see that vengeance, repayment, belongs to God, not human ego-mind, then Balance comes, as it already exists in the infinite Universe surrounding our little bubble of "civilization". And this is the very theme of Christian theology: freedom beyond written law, written scripture, and taking on the law of the heart, which is love. Crucifying the Ego, which is Thought of Credit and Debt.
 Because the law brings about wrath;
for where there is no law [nomos] 
there is no transgression
(Romans 4:15).
The more laws and restrictions there are,
the poorer people become. . . .
The more rules and regulations,
the more thieves and robbers.
 
We had no money,
and therefore a man’s worth couldn’t be measured by it.
We had no written law,
no attorney or politicians,
therefore we couldn’t cheat.
 --Lakota Sage Lame Deer (from John Lame Deer, Seeker of Visions)
 It is about giving up the ego to the cross, the Cross of Time and Space, dissolved into the Present, lifting up Moses' serpent on a pole in the wilderness, the Lamb breaking through the Seven Seals, Jah conquering the Seven-Headed Leviathan, Buddha no longer serving the Seven-Headed Naga Serpent, but the Naga serving Buddha, Inanna stripping off her Seven Possessions to enter the Underworld and to resurrect from it, the Kundalini to rise through the Seven Chakras to liberation, Elohim to be liberated from the Seven Days of Creation into Eternal Rest Now, Today (Hebrews 4:4, 7;  Genesis 2:2-3) . 
 
Yes, we ourselves break through the seven blinding veils, able to have 2 ears, 2 eyes, 2 nostrils, and 1 mouth which can actually hear, see, smell, and taste what is, without preconceived thoughts, without prejudices (Psalm 115:4-8).

Money is Law, The Law is a Schoolteacher

 
Money is a schoolteacher.  The Law is a schoolteacher (Galations 3:24-25).  School children earn grades and gold stars to get them to learn, until they begin learning on their own, out of the joy of their hearts, not for the sake of grades, not for the sake of credits.  Just as in the Bhagavad Gita, Krishna speaks of transcending the cycles of Credit and Debt, transcending the perpetual reincarnation of Karma, the old Hindu Law, through giving up working for rewards, so speaks the Buddha, so speaks the Christ (see Here's the One Point We Know the World's Religions Agree Upon (in Word) ).   Grace is doing for the sake of doing, and is joyful.  Law is doing to get something in return, and is forceful.  To give up working for reward, but to work for the sake of work, is to give up the ego, to give up delusion. 
 

The Seven-Headed Beast & the Prostitute of the New Testament

 
The Seven-Headed Leviathan metamorphoses into the Seven-Headed scarlet Beast of the book of Revelation (Starting in Chapter 17).  He is being ridden by the Prostitute of Babylon.  Reading about her, we clearly see that she represents Religion prostituting itself.  The Prostitute does not love for the sake of love, but "loves" for the sake of money: reward, converts, the praise of people.  She is organized religion.  Organized Religion is driven by lust for money (credit & praise)  not by ethics, not by hydra.jpg hydra image by hazzakanlove.  Like the prostitute, she makes a good act at love, but she is not real (see Love and Possession - Sex and Money).  She is nice & squeaky clean on the outside and conniving and violent and dirty on the inside.  She sits upon the Seven-headed Beast, the Money System, the Leviathan described above, beginning with the serpent in the garden.  She thinks she controls it, possesses it, but it controls her, possesses here.  There is great enmity between her and the Serpent (Genesis 3:15, Revelation 7:16).  She is the World's Oldest Profession, the Mother of all Professions.  This Prostitute is also spoken of in the Book of Mormon (1Nephi 14) .   
 
 
Akkadian Seal depicting the slaying of the Seven-Headed Beast
 
Now, check this out:
 
The beast that you saw was, and is not, and is about to come up out of the abyss and go to destruction. And those who dwell on the earth, whose names have not been written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, will wonder when they see the beast, that he was and is not and will come. 
 
Notice that this seven-headed beast exists everywhere but now!
 
Money, like all symbol, exists everywhere but now.  Money was (debt), and is not, and will come (credit).  There is no credit and no debt in the present.  Money does not exist, except in imagination!  The beast does not exist, except in imagination!  Imagination itself cannot dwell in the present moment.  Human thought is future and past, never present.  Human thought can never enter into now, into the Kingdom of God.  Forgiveness is Reality, and is the Present Moment.  All Credit and all debt and all time vanish into the Present Moment, the End of Time. 
 
Jah (the Hebrew word meaning the Eternal Present) does not and cannot exist in human imagination, in human thought.  Yahweh (the Eternal Present) can only be believed in the mind, but never known by the mind.  God can only be known when the mind gives itself up and dies, is completely annihilated on the cross of where the branches of opposites join into the Center, the Eternal Present. 
 
Even the word God is an idea, an attempted image of God, like the Hebrew Yahweh, which must ultimately be given up! 
The word Allah, in Arabic or English, has become no less an idol than an image of Baal or a picture of Muhammad, and must ultimately be given up!
All graven images, all engraven images, must decay! 
 
Think and believe in God.  Belief is law.  Belief, Law, comes and goes, succedes and fails. 
"Be still and know that I am God."  (Psalm 46:10)  Knowledge (gnosis) is grace.  Gnosis, beyond thought, is Eternal.
 
 
Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man comes at an Hour when you
do not think." 
 
This essay is a lot of thinking, huh?
 
My good friend Satya was a student under a Japanese Zen master who once said, after his Dharma talk:
 
Everything you have just heard is thought. 
Now forget everything I said!
