Abraham, Father of Nations ~ The true story of Abraham continues. In part 1 we examined historical and archaeological contexts that support the existence of Abraham, particularly in accord with Oahspe's revealed information. In Part 2 we discussed the religion of Abraham, which came through Zarathustra, established some 3000 years before Abraham. We also examined the effects that Abraham and his contemporaries had on the development of man through the renewal and re-establishment of the Zarathustrian religion among their followers, as well as effects on the broader culture of man. We also compared the original Zarathustrian religion, the mother of all religions, with Judaism and modern Zoroastrianism to demonstrate not only the sources of these later religions, but also to show instances where such later religions went off the rails. Now in Part 3 we look at the major religions still evident in our time, and notwithstanding their imperfections, we follow their roots back to the original Master Light, Ormazd thus revealing their common ancestry.
Symbols of the four major religions in their respective corner locations on the Wheel of Life.
Buddhism in the South East; Mohammedanism in the South West; Christianity in the North West; Brahmanism in the North East.
The modern English name Christ came from the Ahamic (Aramaic) name Kriste. The roots of the name Kriste are KR and it meant Knowledge. Let us see how.
The root sounds (today we would call them letters) of K and R, that is, Chi-Rho, arose etymologically through the Ebra language that preceded Hebrew; and before that at least in part back to the Abram language and before.
The K Sound's origin of KR was a variation on the X sound (as in Greek), the K being produced higher in the throat, at the back of the palate rather than from the depths of the throat as an X. In spelling letters we would say the X was replaced with a K. In linguistics one might be tempted to say a consonant shift occurred, although the K did not completely supplant the X sound, but rather supplemented it.
Yet, the shift from X to K was more than a mere shift in pronunciation. The sound of X (as in Ox or Axe) creates a rhythm and the K is the sound of only one of the beats of the X sound. Analogy-wise, running a finger across many teeth of a comb while saying the X in the word OX, produces a rhythm; but pluck just one comb tooth and that is the sound of a K. Thus the K sound is one iteration / instance / snapshot of the sound made by an X. Yet unlike the X sound, the K sound is explosive, propelling outward rapidly, powerfully, in a forward direction (e.g., King). Thus K is an active powerful going-forth agent (sound) compared to the more passive (but powerful) X; compare for example, the words Axe and Whack.
It would not be surprising, then, for a K-sounding word to take on a nuanced loftier meaning of its predecessor X-sounding word. Thus, while X in general refers to the four corners of the world and the (more or less continual) clash that comes from their interaction, so K, among other things, has kept the meaning "from the corners of the world" (in other words, from all places); but the result of that interaction has been cut short and is now with the K, going forward powerfully to all places.
Nevertheless, in the attempts of the ancients to find a form (glyph) that best described a situation (or sound), so the depiction of K is sometimes shown as an X glyph instead of a K. Such was the case with KR. In some languages X is still written and sounded as an X instead of K, as in Xristos in Greek and Slavic Cyrillic.
Man had long since known of Kings (for instance, in the Abram language Ra'ka meant king (as head and protector of his kingdom) or Father (as head and protector of his family) and that in the early days they were initially chosen by Ormazd to lead. For which reason, the K sound had long been identified with the Head. Thus, as we would say today regarding the Head, the decree (hard "c", i.e., decree compare as in cry, a loud exclamation going forth or crier one who proclaims) came from the mouth of the King. Accordingly, too, one would say that Ormazd (the Master of Light) is (at) the Head of all.
The second meaning of K is a later meaning and it also refers to head; but now in a more direct manner regarding Ormazd. This meaning of head actually originated in the Ebra language from a desire to differentiate that which is coming in from above, from that which was the same thing but having passed through and out from the human body. In other words, the light, knowledge, inspiration, thought, energy, etc., as it descends / comes from Ormazd through His heaven above, and so, enters man. And after man processes the information, he passes it on to another person. The Ebra speakers knew that man would modify / color / lose to some extent the clarity and purity of the incoming inspiration as he passed along the information. The question for the Ebrans was, how to differentiate the two different inspirations: that from Ormazd and His heaven and that which comes from man.
The solution was to identify man as being receptive to that which came down from Ormazd, and contrasted that with identifying man as sending forth that inspiration without losing the essential quality of the message that came to him (descended) from Ormazd.
Ebran speakers knew two things that at first seemed irreconcilable. First, that the Light / Inspiration, etc., from heaven came to the head of man. Second, that the sound K pertained to the head. The problem was that the K sound did not signify receptivity. Instead it was a going-forth sound. The solution rested in the realization that by slightly varying the sound of K, man could make the K sound receptive in its nature.
The key was to refine the K by moving the place of its pronunciation at the throat palate forward to the lips (labia) and including (mouthing) an O sound (the O sound is the mother of all receptivity) there (at the lips) when pronouncing the K. The resulting sound is identified in English as the Q sound. This receptive feminization of the sound is instanced in the English language as the feminine counterpart of King as Queen.
The Q sound gave the receptivity to the head, but receptive to what? The answer was that since, aside from being the Mother of all receptivity, the O sound also encompasses everything even as the sky (heaven) encompasses everything (i.e., the earth), so the O sound meaning sky or heaven was added to the Q sound. Now the result is Qo. But something is missing....Heaven or the sky is a huge place, and as well as higher grade angels dwelling in it so do lower grade spirits inhabit the lower regions of heaven. Accordingly, some sort of indication was necessary to specify the source of the inspiration / light, etc. Since the P sound embraces etherea (for instance, preceding Ebra was the Fonece word for Etherea Pe as in the Emp'agatu Tablet in Oahspe), so, accordingly, to Qo the P sound was added to anchor the Light /inspiration, etc., to that which is beyond the reach of evil. And finally, the H sound was added to stabilize and impart endurance, as it always does. The H sound was necessary because of the extremes involved, being man's head on earth and oppositely, the Light of Ormazd as it came from the purity and clarity of ethe(rea). The resulting word was Qoph.
Thus, the sound / word Qoph meant that which is received, namely Light, knowledge, inspiration, thought, energy, etc., through the head of man from Ormazd through the agency of the sky anchored in etherea and stabilized. Accordingly, man had successfully addressed the first half of the problem. Its opposite proved to be the answer to the second half of the problem.
Contrasted to the receptive Qoph was its opposite which was K (Kaph) meaning that (Light, knowledge, inspiration, etc.) which comes from the head (K) and descends (A) to flow out of the body, ideally as a blessing. To insure that what is given out is a blessing and not a curse, the P and H are again added as anchorage and stability. Finally, it was understood without having to say so, that the blessing flows out both through the palms of the hands and through the soles of the feet. Although, man with his free will can direct it; hence, for instance, the laying on of hands to effect a cure, or to lovingly caress a baby's face. And similarly as the holiness (exalted message) pours through the soles of the feet, the land is blessed.
Qoph / Kaph has many derivatives, for instances, in the German language, Kopf specifically means head; in English, one has words such as cap and cap- as in capitol.
In summary, the K sound historically had connection with Light and Knowledge as well as the Head.
The "R" sound of KR also means head and is derived no later than the Abram language from its word Resh, specifically meaning head, which sound and meaning also descended to Ebra then to both Greek and Hebrew. The R sound of Resh evidently derived from the Or of Ormazd.
The word "Or" as in Ormazd, means light. Etymologically, O refers to heaven, to the sky, that which causes one to look up. The written form of "R" shows the top of the letter embracing the realm of Fire (light, ethe, all-motion) and then streaming it downward to that which rests below. Hence, to the receiver, it is light or more technically, light from the highest source. The head is the symbolic receptacle of that light, in fact of any light, being the place where perception of light occurs, and hence where knowledge (the spoken word) comes forth. The head is also the place where knowledge is stored.
Hence the appearance of the R in KR (Chi-Rho). Since Ahamic is an amalgamated language, that is, because it assimilates words from other languages it is a language where a word may have more than one meaning, and it is also a language in which compound words occur. Accordingly Ahamic had the word KRiste meaning Knowledge (Aramaic is a later form / daughter language of the more ancient Ahamic language). In Greek the word was Krestos. In time, Kriste became known as the Person (heavenly source) of Knowledge. In other words, Kriste became worshipful. We can recognize, of course, that the true Source of Knowledge was none other than Ormazd, aka Jehovih, the Great Spirit, the I Am.
The Triunes supplant the Great Spirit with the Holy Ghost
Since the highest knowledge came to man when he was immersed in a feeling (a spirit) of holiness, so that condition became known as the Holy Ghost (as it was rendered back then) and today called the Holy Spirit.
Now, the I Am is a Person, the name of the Master of Light (Ormazd) being Jehovih. Although, Jehovih as Master of All Things Seen and Unseen including Light, Understanding and Knowledge, was not in the form and figure of a man (since He was / is within as well as beyond all things). Notwithstanding, this exalted conception of the Great Spirit Creator from Whom the creation owes its existence, form, purpose, etc., was beyond the comprehension of some of those who received the teachings. As a result, in the time after Moses, these latter types preferred a coarser representation of the Creator, and so they conceived of Him as being in the form and figure of a man, a heavenly man to be sure, but a man-God nonetheless. Hence, while the true Israelites worshipped the Everpresent Jehovih, the Great I Am in their secret rites and ceremonies, so others (who lived in the same regions, but who lived by the outer temple teachings) began to worship, as the name known to them, Jehova, but in the form and figure of a man-God in heaven (with long white hair and flowing beard) sitting on a throne.
Thus for hundreds of years the Jews, as they were called, remained as two, even as in the time of Moses being a) the true Israelites, as worshippers of the I Am, and b) those of imperfect understanding who also claimed to follow the teachings of Moses, but began to worship Jehova in the form and figure of a man.
But in time, amongst the true Israelites were those who sought an even holier level of living than the worldliness that seemed to be turning the heads of many Israelites toward the ways of the world and the king's people --- and away from the higher nuances of Es (the higher heavenly ways). Within and among the more worldly Israelites, the light of Es had been in slow descent. But those desiring to preserve the Es knowledge and Es communion, feared that the higher knowledge, light and teachings would become lost to man if he continued on such a downward course.
These higher-oriented individuals came together and formed communities, sharing all things in common --- save marriage, which they maintained as one man, one wife; or else as strict celibates. As exacting vegans who desired to live the life of Es while living as mortals, they thus called themselves Es'eans (meaning followers of Es). And they pledged themselves to Jehovih to have no king or earth ruler but their rab'bahs. Many people of the time evilly slandered and vilified them; the kings' scribes recorded these, and such libels entered history. Today these people are known as Essenes.
It was prophesied that from among their seed would come one who would restore the higher teachings that Moses had taught but had become lost or corrupted. After hundreds of years, the time came. Around 350 bce, one Joshu, a son of the devout Essene Faithists Joseph and Mara, set out to fulfill his destiny. Joshu was natural-born Iesu.
Now, Iesu (I = power of the All Holy; E = going forth on all levels; Su = enlightened man) was the ancient name for a sinless person. In other words, an Iesu was a close conception of what it meant to be a perfected man. It has a cognate in the name Yeshuah (Y = going toward; Es = highest spirit / light; Huah = man). That is, a Yeshuah was a person in ascension who went forth in and toward the highest light (the Light of Es, the Light of Ormazd). Yeshuah itself has a cognate in the Hebrew Joshua. An Iesu or Yeshuah (Joshua) was therefore a teacher of highest caliber among men (male or female), teaching and exhibiting comprehensively higher spiritual concepts, values and attainments.
In the disfigured history of the Ezra bible, the term Joshua as righteous leader-forth was replaced by a warrior type individual named Joshua. The Ezra bible tales of Joshua, the hero who conquered the Canaanites and their cities, is a myth which embodies a much later time --- some 400 years following Moses and the exodus when the apostate Israelites began to war and choose Kings, being under the influence of false gods and evil practices.
In other words, Joshu was only one of many spiritual leadersforth. Indeed, in the few hundreds of years prior to Joshu a plethora of spiritual leadersforth had appeared, seeking to establish the Holy Ghost. Included among them were Mithra, Krishna, Sam Sin, Prometheus, and Efrokin to name but a few. Most of them are familiar in some form or other, The story of Sam Sin (Samson), for instance, was told in the old stories of leadersforth, which apparently somehow made its way into the Ezra Bible. Efrokin of Egypt, on the other hand, later had the whole of the land of Arabin'ya attributed to him. That is, in after times, someone in Uropa or Heleste would ask of a stranger from Arabin'ya, where do you come from? And the response was from the land of Efrokin; which was the origin of the name Afrika (Africa).
And the teachings of that plethora of spiritual leadersforth generally taught the doctrine of a trinity, being the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost. By Father meant a Father in heaven; by Son was meant those on earth who follow the teachings of the Father. And those teachings were for the purpose of keeping the presence of the Holy Ghost within one's life.
Thus the Holy Ghost initially was not a reference to a Person but to a sensation---that of holiness. The Gnostics were initially lovers of Knowledge (notice the K in knowledge---recall K = head). And because of the wanton destruction occurring in their time, they would fight the barbarians to protect their knowledge, teachings and the libraries of their culture and civilization. These warriors would fight, as they said, for the Holy Ghost, that is, to ensure the conditions so that the sensibility of Holiness could be everpresent in their midst. In the Middle East and northern Africa, these warriors took the name Kriste'yans.
Note, then, that Kriste was not initially thought of as a person. That would come over the course of time. Meanwhile, across Persia, the Middle East and Egypt, many stories existed / circulated concerning the spiritual leadersforth, many of whom were said to be Iesu, but were actually more like what in later times would be called Saints and Martyrs.
Thus, the word Kriste had been used among Gnostics and Krist'yans for about 600 years when the Holy Roman Emperor Constantine desired a kingdom unified into one religion; so, Kriste would become the Father, and a template / archetype Iesu would be the Son, and of course there was the Holy Ghost. As the church worked to impress the identity of Iesu as equal to the Creator, Kriste also became conflated with the man Iesu and became Jesus Christ.
Which is to say, the stories of the Iesus were gathered up and woven into a story of the Iesu who was made out to be Kriste's Son. The stories were woven about a core consisting of the stories regarding the Essene Joshu and the prophet Zarathustra (which much of Mithraism had built around). But elements from stories of other spiritual leadersforth / saviors were also added as necessary, so as to satisfy their followers. And since most of those had taught the trinity of Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, so it too was adopted into the story. And this latter doctrine went a long way toward the acceptance of the form of Christianity that came out of the Council of Nicaea after 325 ce.
Now, since the idea was to create a monotheistic religion (one God), that trinity had to be made to seem as one person, even God. Thus, there was God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Ghost. And the Three were one in God; thus God was both One and Three, said the essence of the doctrine coming out of Nicaea.
But there had been a problem. The Holy Ghost as it was conceived to be, had historically not been considered to be a Person. But a way out of that was found through an ancient concept predating Christianity. That concept was called the Paraclete. In simple terms, Paraclete means revealer and keeper of destiny. Eventually man began to think of the Paraclete as a protector. And it was in that sense that the ancient Greek language had been using it. And since a protector is often thought of as being a person, so, too, was the Paraclete. The conflating of the Paraclete with the Holy Ghost brought about the desired component of person to the Holy Ghost. Now man could have God the Father with God the Son and God the Holy Ghost, which made Three persons as One.
Doctoring the Faith for the Many
The Trinity thus became a sort of salve to assist those in the Holy Roman Empire and its hegemonic sphere of influence to accept Christianity. After all, Christ / Kriste was simply another name for the Knowledge that man had been searching for. For, recall, most of the spiritual leadersforth, had been teaching this search for knowledge.
It was for that reason that Christianity as it came out of Nicaea was so readily accepted by different peoples. And it explains why, although it had ceased most arguments between the different traditions, it had yet to win over all. Still, the founders of the religion were aware that in a few generations at most, mainstream Christianity would reign triumphant as the one religion of the realm---save for the Jewish religion, for these, for the most part, would not accept the new doctrines / testament as it was called.
And since it was Christian clerics who would keep the records and copy and re-copy older works, so they could and would simply "correct" mistakes as they thought them to be. Accordingly, one can see "Jesus Christ" and other parts of the concocted Nicaea version of reality interjected into copies of manuscripts of early "Christian Fathers". These "doctored" manuscripts stand as evidence today of the effectiveness of that approach; for, those who believe that truth can only be found in corporeal evidence will say: "There is as yet no (physical) evidence of them being tampered with, and so we have no solid reason to doubt the record, though it may have falsehood in it."
Thus there are those who would prefer to deny that any change whatsoever occurred; and that the records should be taken at face value, or at least on faith. Yet the consensus of modern scholarship of the New Testament however, is that these scripts were not authored by any eyewitnesses to the stories told there-in.
Accordingly, the question for scholars will be, how much of the real story did the secretary for the 325 CE Council Nicaea, Eusebius, record and how much not? Perhaps corporeal clues could still be found. Yet it would prove a daunting task. Since the attendees to that Nicaea Council had agreed to accept the base of the new doctrines, even though some details remained to be worked out, they were not likely to upset the cart that they had helped craft. And the ancient Christian practice of destroying / burning documents and books that might prove their new bible to be fictitious, would make certain that the writings of any who defied the new religion would be destroyed.
Such a narrative is simply a portrayal of the lengths to which man would battle to become the alpha interpreter of reality. For, while the claim may be: laboring in the interests of the search for truth, yet the beast in man ever desires to be in the alpha position / the top of the field / the shot caller, and thus, man can not only labor in the interests of his own idea of truth, but in times of darkness he often seeks to impress those "truths" upon others.
As can be seen, such has happened in the realm of religion. And this character flaw can be found in all peoples (i.e., nations), regardless of religion professed. The point here is not whether or not certain people were wrong or right, but to discover the underlying truths within all religions and philosophies. And perceiving them, what, if any, are their unifying characteristics across religions?
The Quest for Knowledge
One unifying theme among the four mainstream religions that came to our present time (Christianity, Islam, Brahminism, Buddhism) was the quest for Knowledge, that is, to Know why and how man is more than a physical body. To this end, those four big religions have sought out answers and brought them forth to our own times. Their roots go back to Knowledge which comes to man from above, the Source of which man first learned to call Ormazd---the Master of Light, but known to them as Christ, Buddha, Brahma and Allah.
We have already spoken of Kriste with a foundation in, interpreting etymologically, Chi-Rho, as a compound word meaning: through light, knowledge enters the head. As used in the Ahamic (Aramaic) language of that time, Chi-Rho meant knowledge. Brahma was also previously mentioned as a word that signified Knowledge. Parsing Brahma we get Brah-ma. "Brah" means Life - Good Creation and "ma" means Great Soul. Thus the meaning of the name is "Someone who is representing the Great Soul of Life". Brahma was re-invigorating movement toward Knowledge which he gave forth through the original Vedas. The origins of both names, Brahma and Abram lie in an ancient "mantra" or prayer to the Everlastig Creator which came out of the Osiris cycle (some 12,000 years ago). It is a 5 part solution to life uttered in the ancient word "Abracadabra". Concisely, Ab = Life, the I AM self existent everywhere; ra = motion, things move to and from life, create and destroy; ca = thinking, knowledge that comes from the I AM; d'ab = lesser or evil creation; ra = evil creation. Thus Brahma and Abram are built on the first part of the Abracadabra mantra which signifies the Good Creation. So by around 750 bce, the word Brahma essentially meant the Source of Knowledge, or simply Knowledge. We now look briefly at Buddha, and finally, at the Mohammedans.
The word Budah (Buddha) also means Knowledge. "Bu" refers to the earth and technically to the fullness of the earth. And "da" means Light, but because its ending is truncated (the "da" normally has at least an "n" following it) the meaning refers to a specific light, that is, a light to a specific end, in this case the light is pouring downward from heaven to earth (as indicated by the "a"; a following "n" would normally distribute this light, but it is missing here). The final "h" is a stabilizer and adds endurance, and so, following the "a" the "h" refers to the earth. So that literally the message is the fullness of the earth depends upon Light / Knowledge descending from heaven and being available on earth. The way of the Buddha, then, is to show man not only how to keep the channel open for the descent of the light / knowledge but how to make beneficial or best use of this knowledge.
Now, with Mohammed and his followers, the word Alah came directly from Ebra, where it meant the Wheel, that is, the Wheel of Life. The wheel of life has many meanings but one is that the Creator is known by His wheel. Indeed, His written name includes the wheel. For, He is without beginning and without end. But for man's sake, He places markers on His wheel so that man may know his place. In the time of Zarathustra and afterward, the Faithists would place a wheel of the Creator at each crossroad. And there, a person passing by, upon seeing the wheel would remember his Creator (Ormazd) and so, turn the wheel once around in remembrance of Him.
Another meaning of the Wheel of Life is that it presents challenges to man as he traverses the wheel of life. But sometimes these tests become too much for man and he desires a release from the wheel. And he pleads to Ormazd, Who at times sets him free for a respite, and at other times, imparts knowledge as to how to change his behavior so that in the future he may not be bound by the same fetters.
These meanings were kept through the many millennia by the forebears of those who became followers of Mohammed. So that by the time of Mohammed, the wheel still meant two things: He (in other words, the Creator) who releases you from the wheel of life (i.e., from its trials) and second, by extension the Knowledge necessary to avoid trials (or knowledge necessary to release you from trials) on the wheel of life. Even as the Jews would refer to the Creator by more than one name, so by the time of Mohammed, the Wheel, that is, Alah (nowadays spelled as Allah) signified the Creator, that is, the One who releases you from the wheel. And as in olden times, Alah provides man with the Knowledge of how to avoid or get released from trials on the wheel of life. And as an extension of this, one can then enjoy life as the Creator has provided.
Interestingly, with the Mohammedans, because their genesis was as Arabs, so their language was derived mainly from Araba which stemmed out from Abram via those Listians who remained shepherds (thus continuing their inherited legacy of the Shepherd Kings).
Ara'ba comes from the word / office of Rab'bah (spiritual head) and Ara'ba signifies foundation of the order of Fathers, or Ground of Fathers, and in the case of Arabia, it means Land of the Fathers. So, even as Abraham was a father to the Israelites, and shepherd to many future tribes (nations) of Faithists, so those of Ara'ba kept to the notion of honoring rule by (Spiritual) Fathers (the foundation of Patriarchy). Accordingly, those who speak Arabic have a deep-seated connection with that lineage. Which is to say that all Mohammedans, whether or not they speak Arabic, have a system and order that has its roots deeply grounded in the cultural values of honoring the father as a loving, wise and humble head of one's extended family.
In the same way, then, Allah, as the All-loving Father of All, is looked upon and adored as the fount of All Order and Knowledge. (One gains knowledge by traveling the wheel of life (the life provided by Allah), and in doing so, appreciation grows for His wisdom in the order and system of His creation.
Interestingly, too, when Mohammed came with his message, he and his followers brought it to many regions and was chiefly successful in those which also had a strong heritage of the humble shepherd kings (especially along the swath running across North Africa, Middle East, Persia and Afghanistan).
Crescent and Star
A crescent is used to represent the Moon, and together with the Star can signify heaven---a truly meaningful symbol to shepherd families who for millennia used the moon and stars as their clock. Moreover, a crescent is composed of two wheels (a small wheel nesting within a larger wheel and intersecting at one point). The outer wheel is composed of light or heaven and the inner wheel, generally having the larger mass, is composed of earth or darkness.
The Crescent is two circles, one smaller within a larger, intersecting at one point. The star appears at the intersection
The resulting moon crescent thus signifies light from heaven to those in darkness, or protection for those innocents asleep. And the star signifies the light within the individual soul, being lesser than the larger (outer) wheel of Light. The starlight surrounded by darkness, thus the more brightly shines forth in contrast. Whereas, in full sunlight the star would become blended within the greater light of the Sun (symbolic of the Creator as All Light including His spiritual light). The Crescent Moon therefore signifies the Great Love that the Heavenly Father of All has for His creation, and for His children, for each is allowed to shine forth his or her light under the loving care of our Heavenly Father. Thus each man, male or female, is one of His own.
Finally, we take an etymological look at the sacred book of the Mohammedans, the Qoran. This is nowadays sometimes rendered among other variations as Koran, thus replacing the receptivity of Q with the going forth of K. But initially the Qoran signified receptivity (Q) to the Light of Heaven (Or) as it descended to the earth (A) for the purpose of uplifting (N). Hence etymologically the Qoran was identifying itself as light from heaven descending to man for the purpose of uplifting him; or as might be further said, to give him the necessary knowledge by which he might live a life free from the severity of earthly trials.
The Coming World
In summary, the four major religions of mankind in our times have their historical roots in the One Source, namely the Master of All Light and Knowledge, the Ormazd of the Ancients, being the All Highest, the Creator, Whose name Jehovih was given to Abraham and to Moses; He is the I Am Who has been with man from his very beginning, the Great Spirit of the Native Americans (Guatamans) and the All Highest, the Person of the Whole. Even as the Wheel of Life is as One Whole, so man was taught Ormazd as the All One. And just as there are four cardinal directions (East, West, North, South) on the wheel, so there are four fundamental outer-realm approaches to or perceptions of the All Person. For, as children begin life having only the relationship of child to father, and when the child becomes an adult he relates differently to his father, and differently still when he himself becomes a parent, and then as a grandparent with himself requiring care, even so, are there four main approaches to or perceptions of the All Person.
Accordingly, some 3000 years after Zarathustra, came four great Faithist leadersforth: Po of Jaffeth (which later became China); Abram -Abraham, for Arabin'ya (previously known as Ham, especially think of the fertile crescent; Brahma (the first and true) of Vind'yu (later known as India); and Eawahtah (later known as Hiawatha) of Guatama (later known as America). Each of these four great spiritual leadersforth taught one of the four approaches to the All One, that of: Child to Father (China); Adult child to Father (India); Partner / co-creator / co-responsibility / family (Guatama); and Independent Laborer (one who takes full responsibility) to Expert Consultant (Ham), that is, where all is one and one is all (the Elohim).
For those having difficulty traversing the wheel, Jehovih had created the corners for respite. But those who hearkened more to the beast than to the Great I Am, desired to remain in the corners rather than progress through the wheel. But since all must progress, the beast in each corner will push man forward. Hence, man ever has a choice of being called toward the highest good, and by positively responding in his behavior, man progresses in the wheel, rejoicing; or else upon choosing self / the beast instead of the All Highest, so such a one is pushed along amid pain in his progress.
From His great Compassion, Jehovih allows for those in humanity who are slower on the uptake, to thus follow a less rigorous course, being that set forth by one of the four major religions of the Beast. Thus, the Brahmins, Buddhists, Mohammedans and Christians each have a corner where they help those people stuck in that corner. Hence, the Brahmins in the NE help man to relate as a child to his Father; the Buddhists in the SE help man relate as an adult child to his Father; the Mohammedans in the SW help man relate as a partner; and the Christians in the NW help man relate as an independent contractor. --- At least, such is how it starts. But over the course of time, the concerns of the beast in the corners begins to begins to replace these helpers; and so the four major religions begin to practice and enforce the opposite.
Hence, the beast in the NE corner will try to keep man feeling and acting as an orphaned child; the beast in the SE corner will try to keep man feeling and acting as a petulant child, ever dissatisfied; the beast in the SW corner will try to keep man from feeling and acting as a full partner; while the beast in the NW corner will try to keep man dependent upon the beast for all things.
For which reason every 3000 years or so, the Almighty Great Spirit Jehovih re-inspires man on a grand scale with the original teachings, but ever more comprehensively. Accordingly, by 3000 years after Zarathustra the teachings had became sufficiently corrupted to require a grand re-inspiration, which came with Po, Abram, Brahma, and Eawahtah, as previously discussed. Three thousand years later came another grand re-inspiration through Capilya of Vind'yu (India), Moses of Arabin'ya (fertile crescent), and Chine of Chine'ya (literally, followers of Chine); the teachings in Guatama (America) had not degenerated much, and hence required no great leaderforth to re-teach them. But because the teachings in China, India, and the Fertile Crescent degenerated rather rapidly after Capilya, Moses and Chine, so, after some 800 to 1200 years the Great Spirit provided for three great leadersforth to re-teach and refine the messages of Chine, Capilya and Moses. Those great spiritual leaders were respectively, Ka'yu (later known as Confucius), Sakaya (subsumed later into the teachings of Buddha), and Joshu (whose life and teachings were subsumed, in part, into the teachings of Christ).
Today man finds himself 3000 years after Capilya, Moses, and Chine; and once again the time has come for the mistakes in inspiration to fall away, to be replaced by the truer, more comprehensive truths of our existence. This need not mean wholesale destruction of past doctrines, but as a man's clothes have become threadbare and overly-patched so that they no longer fulfill their function save in small measure, so he discards those garments for new garments --- but still clothes nonetheless, with sleeves and fasteners much like the discarded garments but cleaner and better suited to the needs of the wearer.
It has been prophesied that this new, cleaner, more comprehensive and suitable inspiration shall not come forth through great leadersforth, but through the souls of thousands. And is it not proving so?
