Essene Week 10: The Essene Way of Life as a Peace Teaching

walkers between worlds

The Essenes practiced an agricultural, community-based lifestyle away from the cities. There were no rich or poor among them because of the alignment of their economics, lifestyle, and society with Divine Law. The Essenes considered Divine Law to be the sum total of all the laws governing all manifestations of the forces of nature and the cosmos. This Divine Law is perhaps best summarized as the Living Law of Love and Harmony with All Creation. In accordance with their sense of Divine Law, the Essenes had no slaves and were said to be the first society to condemn slavery both […]

The Light of Live Foods

The Spiritual Nutrition diet is a special type of spiritual vegan diet aimed at helping us transcend body consciousness, clean the koshas, calm the vrittis of the mind, clear the nadis, and expand the prana. For this reason, Spiritual Nutrition is more disciplined than a regular vegetarian diet, generally lighter and includes Spiritual Fasting and the taking of primarily live foods (uncooked roots, leafy vegetables, fruits, nuts, and seeds). These are called the food of the rishis (sages) or ancient Yogis, as well as the probable diet of the Essenes. Five effects of green juice fasting are: cleansing, rebuilding, rehydrating, […]

Soul Connection

The Essenes taught soul power and becoming the depth of who we are.  When we follow current events, it appears that many have lost their root and their connection with their soul.  Within the last 50 years we can see that the divorce rates have doubled, teen suicides have tripled, crime has quadrupled, the amount of people in jail is 5 times higher, and depression is 10 times higher.  The United States is the biggest purveyor and exporter of pornography in the world.  Drug use in the United States is highest in the world, and so forth.  To me, this […]

The Essene Sevenfold Peace

There is so much disinformation in the media and online that this year’s Modern Essene Gathering will focus on how to strengthen our soul connection. Our world is being filled with a potentially overwhelming amount of dissonance, misinformation, and disinformation aimed at overwhelming our conscious mind in a way that deludes us into a subtle disconnection with our souls. At this year’s Modern Essene Gathering we’ll discuss questions such as, “Did the Israelite Exodus from Egypt, as many archeologists believe, never happen, undermining historical basis of the Torah?” and “As much of the western world is secularized and turns away from […]

May Peace Be With You

The Essenes historically said, “May peace be with you”, as the highest prayer or way of wishing well for people. For them it had a variety of meanings. The highest meaning was to dissolve into the Divine, knowing that you and the Divine are no longer separate and are eternally one. When one knows that it changes how one lives their life. Whatever is happening is the play of the Divine, which we are a part of. In essence, we become merged with the Divine will. When you merge with the Divine will, there is no you left. When there […]

Inner Peace

Peace is mysterious because so few people in the world are able to create inner peace. Inner peace is the pearl of great price. This inner peace is what life is about. When we talk about the Essene Seven-Fold Peace, we get a little more of a feeling for it. The seven-fold peace includes: Peace with the Body: health. A Peaceful Mind is a quiet mind, and is one of the great gifts of spiritual life. Peace with the Family, including all relationships. One of the great teachings is that when there is peace in the family, it spreads throughout […]

Peace with the Physical Body

PEACE WITH THE BODY IS THE FIRST LEVEL OF AWARENESS. From the Essene Gospel of Peace, Book 4: “First shall the Son of Man seek Peace with his own body, for his body is as a mountain pond that reflects the sun when it is still and clear; but when it is full of mud and stones, it reflects nothing.” There are three aspects of developing peace with the body: (1) the body as its own ecological unit; (2) the body as a planetary cell in our global organism; and (3) the cosmic body.We’ll look at all three in this chapter.

The Soul Power of the Unique Expression

Tonight’s communion is the angel of power. We see the world involved in a power-struggle. This is of course an illusory power-struggle for control and domination because in fact, we are never in control. This is a high level of delusion; however, as I’m sure we’ve all noticed, people are willing to kill each other over their delusions in the confusion of asserting power to dominate the world. This never has worked throughout history and never will work now or in the future. This is not how the world is set up on the divine level. There is only one […]

Peace is the One in front of the Zeros

There are different levels of understanding of how to go about achieving peace. Most important is quieting our mind in order to access this inner peace. It is the metaphorical One in front of the zeros. The Six Foundations and the Sevenfold Peace are about accessing this inner peace. The Six Foundations are as follows: Spiritual Nutrition and Spiritual Fasting Building Life Force Energy through Pranayama, Yoga Asana, Tai Chi, Chi Gong, jumping on a Rebounder (bringing the oxygen in), etc., Service and Charity, Working with a Spiritual Teacher; Tuning into the Ancient Scriptures to get a framework of the […]
