THE MYSTIC FOOD

Post by Admin on Mon Nov 12, 2007 6:23 pm

(Part 1 of 2 posts)

The Spiritual “FOOD” (or “DRINK”) of God is spoken of throughout the scriptures of all the great world religions. It may seem a strange thing, but it refers to the inner Spiritual sustenance, which is revealed by all genuine Masters, and universally experienced by Mystic initiates. In the Judaeo-Christian tradition it has been called “manna”, “bread from Heaven”, “milk and honey”, “living water”, “elixir”, etc; while in the east it has been referred to as “nectar”, “ambrosia”, “soma”, “amrita”, etc. – i.e. the Divine ‘food of the Gods’. Here follows a list of quotations from the Hebrew Scriptures, followed by some others from other religious traditions.

“I (the Lord) have come down to deliver them… and to raise them up out of this land, to a great and good place, a [Spiritual] land flowing with Milk and Honey.” Exod 3:8

“The Israelites called the Heavenly Food ‘Manna’… and the taste was like honey.” Exod 16:31

“The Israelites sang this song: ‘Well up, O spring of [Spiritual] Water! Greet it with song: the Holy Spring unearthed by [Divine] Princes, revealed by the Noble [Holy] Ones’.” Num 21:17-18

“He (the Lord) fed you (the Israelites) with Manna, which neither you nor your fathers had previously known, in order that you might know that [Spiritual] man does not live by [physical] bread.” Deut 8:3

“God then opened up a hollow place within his (Samson’s) jaw, and water began to flow out. Samson drank and immediately the Spirit revived him; thus he called this [inner] Spring: ‘the Well of the invoker’ (i.e. of those who invoke the living God).” Judges 15:19

“They (the initiated) feast on the bounty of Your (Yahweh’s) House; You give them drink from Your abundant River of [Spiritual] Pleasure.” Psalm 36:8

“He (the Lord) commanded the highest realms, and opened the doors of Heaven, He rained down Manna to feed them (the Israelites), He gave them the Bread of Heaven. So men ate the Immortal Food which satisfies the heart.” Psalm 78:23-25

“Whoever lacks [Divine] Knowledge, let him turn within; and to those who seek understanding, Wisdom says: ‘Come, eat of my [Spiritual] Bread, and drink the [Spiritual] Wine which I have prepared.” Prov 9:4-5

“Eat the [Spiritual] Honey, My son, for it is good; and let the sweetness be upon thy tongue: thus shall Wisdom be revealed in your soul.” Prov 24:13-14

“Come to the Water all you who are [Spiritually] thirsty; though you have no money, come! Buy Corn without money and eat, and, free of price, drink Wine and Milk. Why do you spend money on that which cannot truly satisfy?” Isaiah 55:1-2

“On that day a fountain will be opened to the house of David (i.e. the "beloved of God") and the inhabitants of Jerusalem (i.e. the "Spiritual Abode of Peace"), to cleanse them from sin and impurity.” Zec 13:1

“Whoever drinks of the Water that I (the Lord) give shall never thirst again; for the Water that I give is an inner Spring: the Well of Eternal Life.” John 4:14

“Jesus said to them: ‘I have food to eat that you know nothing about’.” John 4:32

“Strive not for food which perishes, but for the Food which lasts and gives Eternal Life, which the Son of Man will give you… My Father gives the true Bread from Heaven; for the Bread of God is that which comes down from Heaven and gives [Spiritual] Life to the world.” John 6:27-33

“From within you (initiated disciples) shall flow streams of Living Water.” John 7:38

“To those who are victorious I (the Lord) will give the hidden Manna.” Rev 2:17

“The Lamb who is at the heart of the [Heavenly] Throne will be their shepherd, and shall lead them to the Fountain of Life-giving Water.” Rev 7:17

“To those who thirst I (the Lord) will give of the Water of Life freely.” Rev 21:6

“My (an initiate’s) eyes have gazed on that which is Eternal, on Wisdom concealed from men… on a Spring of Glory hidden from carnal men.” (Dead Sea Scrolls: ‘Community Rule’ Col. XI).

“I thank Thee, O Lord, for Thou hast placed me (an initiate) beside the Fountain of Living Waters in this arid land… beside the Garden of Delight in this wilderness… trees of Life beside a Fountain of Mystery… No one shall approach that Well-Spring of Life or drink the Waters of Holiness… who seeing have not discerned, and considering have not believed in the Fountain of Life.” (Dead Sea Scrolls: ‘Hymn’ 14).

“May the Lord open for you from Heaven the Eternal Fountain which does not fail… May He unlock for you the everlasting Fountain; may He not withhold the Water of Life from them that thirst!” (Dead Sea Scrolls: ‘Liturgical Fragments’).

“From the Lord’s Spring came Enlightening Water in abundance to my (an initiate’s) lips. I drank and became intoxicated with the Living Water of Eternal Life; but my drunkenness was not that of ignorance, for I forsook vanity and turned to God Most High.” (Odes of Solomon 11:6-8 ).

“Fill yourselves with Water from the Living Spring of the Lord, for it has been opened to you (initiates). Come all you who thirst, and take the Drink, and rest by the Fountain of the Lord. For it is pleasing and pure, and gives rest to the soul. More pleasant is its Water than honey, and the honeycomb of bees is not to be compared with it. For it flows from the lips of the Lord, and from the heart of the Lord is it named. And it comes boundless and invisible, and until it is set in their midst they do not know it. Blessed are they who have drunk from it, and have found rest thereby.” (Odes of Solomon 30:1-7).

I think it means that it is not of this plane, while a metapor of this plane is used (because it is known our minds are trapped here, and can only think in terms of the physical world, so non-physical things must be described in physical contexts to be understood)i don't think it is like real food. Real food is dead things, and while it fills up temporarily, it turns to poo and you are left empty again. The spirit is not like that, once filled you never loose it (unless you choose to) and you don't need a continuous supply, and it is NOT comprised of plant or animal corpses. I think it has more to do with satisfying, food SEEMS to satisfy, but it is a transient satisfaction, while the mystic food WILL fill you up, and never leave you empty again later.

This Mystic sustenance has both Spiritual and physical elements. The Jews, with Moses, were apparently sustained physically in the desert for years on Manna. Jesus, we are told went into the desert for forty days and was obviously sustained on it. Yogis in India have been known to survive for prolonged periods (sometimes for years) on only the inner nectar of Life. It is mentioned in all the great Scriptures ~ being called Manna, Ambrosia, Nectar, Living Water, Food of Life.

I just wanted to add something Samael Aun Weor spoke about regrding the "manna" - He was reffering to different ethers created using alchemy that nurish the astral body, the mental body, and others, etc... if I find the exact quotes I'll post them.

Here is an interesting video describing (in a materialistic sense) some of the Spiritual Experiences of the Holy Place of Meeting ~ the Mystic Light, and the Manna.

This is known to me as "The River of Life", which waters "The Tree's of Life'-of which the fruit is the concentrated love of God.
The Tree's are of course the chakra's.
This is very advanced stuff and is not experienced until one has gone thru a number of purifying experiences. Each experience
increases the vibrational rate that is very necessary unless one wants to burn up, because the River of Life can also be called
Holy Fire. (See my username)




peace

Ambrosia, nectar, amrita etc can be experienced as a result of deep meditation, so I have read. It can also be experienced as a result of kundalini awakening. So I agree it is both a physical and spiritual experience.

I agree with new progress that this is the divine nectar that comes from the pineal gland if we are chosen to receive it .


The crown chakra is actually outside of the body. it anchors to the pineal gland in the head.

The pineal gland produces a essential oil that fascilitates a direct connection to our creator. This oil is considered to be a sacred essence given to us by God. When the oil flows freely it penetrates every cell of bodies.

When this drop of divine nectar drips down from the creator it is transformed in the brow through the pineal gland. This ambrosia is stored in the lalana chakra which is the forehead chakra at the hairline.

It then flows from the hairline chakra to the heart chakra.
