The Truth About Health, Nutrition, Big Pharma, Wellness, NDE, Spirituality

The harder we work to ever better understand the Gospel teachings of Jesus, the more we see that He did in fact come to us as literally God on earth. He knew things about how reality works that we are only now beginning to see, and He understood and could use facets of our minds that our religions are too stuck in the past to imagine. He was comfortable with phenomena that materialist scientists cannot conceive are even possible. He knew it all, and much more, two thousand years ago! And because all of this is true, if we hope to make sense of what Jesus was saying in light of what we are coming to see that He knew, we will need now to delve a little deeper into His use of a word that until recently I had thought we must have done to death. In fact, we have barely understood it at all.

 There is a common belief that the Eskimo-Inuit people have fifty words for snow. My research suggests this is an exaggeration, but it is true that many cultures will have different words for variations of some of their favorite phenomena. And so the ancient Greeks had a number of words for the emotions that English-speakers refer to all together as just “love.” In general, the ancient Greek words for “love” seem to boil down to these eight:

  • Agape – Love for everyone.
  • Eros – Erotic or romantic love.
  • Ludus – Playfully flirtatious love.
  • Mania – Possessive love.
  • Philautia – Self-love.
  • Philia – Intimate friendship.
  • Pragma – Longstanding and fully committed love.
  • Storge – Unconditional familial love.

The Gospels were first written in Greek several decades after the Lord’s death, and those earliest writers used “agape” for the transformational love that Jesus preached. The first authors of the written Gospels were trying to be faithful to His words, but their vocabulary was so limited. And their understanding was even a great deal more limited! They could have no glimmer of the monumental truth that God had entered a body and had come to earth in order to teach us. Nor did the later architects of Christianity understand more than had those first clueless authors. Nor, indeed, did any of us really begin to understand very much until the turn of this century, when the earliest pioneers in the field of non-material consciousness research followed the insights of the great quantum physicist Max Planck. Then they achieved the gigantic revelation, since confirmed in many different ways, that what we experience as human consciousness is in fact the base creative force, and that force is all that objectively exists.
