"Anyone who loves their life will lose it, while anyone who hates their life in this world will keep it for eternal life."-Jesus

I think He was wrong. He who loves his life will gain eternal life, because he will seek 'The Way' to extend it! He who hates his life, will end it himself, quickly through suicide, which is more damnable than simply enjoying life for what it is!

There has been some sort of shift in reality. I am so astounded that all the Old Testament was prophecy of a savior offering eternal life, The New Testament was the Good News that eternal life had come, this news was loved outwardly, for centuries, because life was still good enough for enough people! But now men seek death, as it was foretold. It is hard for them to believe or seek a God offering eternal life, when they don't even want the life they have now. How can we learn to love our lives in a holy manner and teach the simple life worth living to our fellow men, so they will seek even unto an eternal life?

Would it be better to just stop reading and go inward, since there are illiterate masters? I know I basically am looking for meaning outside of myself, but even within myself there are things outside my consciousness, that with effort I could become aware of easily. Is this the whole point?

“He that loves his “Psychē -Ψυχή,” shall lose it; and he that hates his “Psychē -Ψυχή,” in this world shall keep it unto eternal ζωή Zoe.”

The word in Greek “Psychē -Ψυχή” means: Soul. There are five types of souls, namely:

Nephesh: Animal soul, which in the physical body is the instinctual vital force which animates the body of animals including the intellectual animal, mistakenly called human being. Nephesh shows itself in the physical breathing during the sexual act.

Ruach: the thinking soul, the seat of thoughts, feelings, desires, affections, aversions.

Neshamah: Spiritual soul, the breath of spiritual life, that through which we experience spiritual life. The human soul, who is a living soul, a living being, in all of the sephiroth of the tree of life.

Chaiah: Divine soul, that which is constituted by the Holy Spirit of God, through it one can attain the highest level of blessedness, it is the soul regarded as a moral being designed for everlasting life.

Yehidah-ζωή Zoe: Christ soul, the army of the voice, the Logos, The Ain Soph Aur, that cannot be dissolved by death.

So, John 12: 25, is an alchemical statement that begins with Nephesh, continues with Ruach and ends in Neshamah, in order to continue through Chaiah into Yehidah.

the Root of David, has prevailed to open the book,
and to loose the seven seals thereof. - Revelation 5: 5

Is the Bible in vernacular languages basically useless? Is the vernacular in general useless? Is there some things we just won't be able to understand? Literally Hebrew and Greek are incomprehensible to me. I'm not saying I ever liked Latin at all, but it just makes sense. I can't comprehend these symbols and to me Latin is just like English, because the letters are literally the same. You just look up the word in a dictionary just like you would in English... No need to learn any new symbols or anything like that. Oh shucks. Also pronunciation is just natural to me for Latin, so this makes comprehending the words so much easier, whereas I can barely pronounce most of these transliterations of Hebrew or Greek? Why does it have to be like this for me? Makes me think something is wrong with me. It actually makes me laugh at myself being such a dumb-dumb with these other languages. I mean it's very humorous, but highly inconvenient for trying to grasp any of the deeper meanings offered here. :(

Pontius Pilate, Latin in full Marcus Pontius Pilatus, Roman prefect (governor) of Judaea under the emperor Tiberius who presided at the trial of Jesus and gave the order for his crucifixion.

And Pilate wrote a title, and put it on the cross. And the writing was, JESUS OF NAZARETH THE KING OF THE JEWS.
This title then read many of the Jews: for the place where Jesus was crucified was nigh to the city: and it was written in Hebrew, and Greek, and Latin.
Then said the chief priests of the Jews to Pilate, Write not, The King of the Jews; but that he said, I am King of the Jews.
Pilate answered, What I have written I have written." - John 19: 19-22

"We need to have the mind of a child in order to enter into the Major Mysteries. We need to be like children in our minds and hearts. We need to be perfect as our Father who is in heaven is perfect. The great mysteries are not achievable through vain intellectualisms; the Major Mysteries are achievable with the heart of a child. We have known great masters of the White Lodge who are totally illiterate... Those who know how to consciously project themselves in the Astral Body, those who know how to settle their negotia- tions in the tribunals of karma, those who directly receive the teachings within the temples of mystery, those who remember their past reincarnations, are the ones who really know esotericism, even if they have never read a book of occultism. Yes, these are the people who really know esotericism, even if in the world, they are nothing but wretched illiterates, even if they are nothing more than simple cooks, or uncivilized Indians. We knew two powerful enlightened beings who were absolutely illiterate. One was an uncivilized Indian (a Mama) of La Sierra Nevada of Santa Marta (Colombia). The other was the powerful Guru Litelantes, a great master of karmic justice. These two powerful initiates enjoy the privilege of possessing continuous cognizance. In similar privileged conditions, these two initiates possess teachings that could never be written down, because if they were to be written down, such knowledge would be profaned... Up until now, I have only known two people who are prepared for Gnosis: an illiterate Indian Mama (shaman) and a woman. Yes, those who want to know have to kill the great destroyer of reality: the mind."
