NTI Revelation, Chapter 4
(v 1 - 6) Looking too deeply for the meaning of symbolism is an activity of the thinking mind. Analyzing details and searching for meaning is asking the ego to explain images to you.
Step back from the images. Take your eyes off of the details, which are separate parts. Look at the whole picture as it is given in the mind. Notice the feelings that the picture evokes. What is the vision in this scripture telling you? As you look with the eyes of wholeness, you will see that this picture speaks of brilliance, joy, joining, holiness, clarity and light. That is the message of this vision. It is a vision that points to the reality of Heaven.
The lesson that is given by asking you to see this vision as a whole is an important lesson that you must learn. As you look on the world now, you see separate parts and you analyze them for meaning. Even in your process of letting go, you see separate parts and you analyze them for meaning. Although this process can seem effective and at times may be helpful to your learning, it is slow, as the separate parts seem to have no end. Step back, and look at the whole. When you look at the whole, what do you see? It is the whole that must be let go, because it is the whole that makes the illusion of parts.
(v 6 - 11) The four living creatures represent eternal sight. They are demonstrated as different to focus you on the fact that they are all the same. For what seems different is meaningless, and what is the same is all that is true. The four creatures are the embodiment of Eternal Sight, and so it is this song that they sing:
Holy, holy, holy are you, the Father and the Christ, who was and is, and is to come for always and eternally. Amen
With the same eternal sight, and with joy and gratitude in its Heart, the creation of the Father echoes its honor in glory to the Father forever.
This is a description of Heaven. This is a description of the recycling of joy and love.
NTI Revelation, Chapter 5
(v 1 - 5) The scroll with writing on both sides, sealed by seven seals, is not a secret scroll that cannot be opened. Every word written on the scroll is written on the Heart of the very creation of God. lt is all that is known to him and all that need be known. The scroll is but a symbol of the knowledge that already is. Jesus is a symbol of one who has discovered the contents of the scroll, but as I have already taught, Jesus is not different from you. Jesus is within your mind, so all that is in his mind is in your mind also. It is not a mystery to you. It is known. And what is known can be discovered when you lay the belief in your unworthiness aside.
(v 6 - 10) You are worthy of the knowledge of the scroll, and the knowledge of the scroll is yours. So what blocks this knowledge from your awareness?
It is the belief that you are what you are not, and that you have done what you could not do.
This is the belief that blocks the knowledge of the scroll. This is the belief that is held to within the mind. This is the belief that is symbolized by darkness that blocks out light. But just as darkness cannot block light, this belief does not hinder the fact that only the truth is true.
(v 11, 12) it is you that the angels sing of. They do not sing of your worth, for they cannot imagine anything but your glory. They do not whisper of sacrifice, because they cannot envision anything but Love. They look upon you now and see only the whiteness of an untouched lamb, because they see only that which is true, and they look directly at you.
(v 13, 14) All that is seen and unseen is of one heart and one glory. Nothing exists that is not a part of all that is, and that is glory. To say that it praises you is not correct, because there is no you separate from it that can be praised. It praises within Itself, in gratitude and love. And it is this praise that is extended within Itself without leaving Itself, so that it seems to move and yet it goes no where. This is the glory and joy of Heaven, and this is That Which you Are.
