The attention-faculty of the soul usually remains dormant in most people, what some call: "The Blind Eye." Mystics portray the typical materialistic society as being a place of sleeping souls unaware of their true identity as soul. Kabir says, "For millions of years you have slept, this morning, will you not wake?" -- Awakening from the Soul-Slumber of the Ages -- A Sant Mat Satsang Edition of Spiritual Awakening Radio With James Bean.

We explore the world of early Christian writings as well as scholarly texts. Some who know Greek and are affiliated with Eastern Orthodox Christianity believe that the mention of "locusts" in the New Testament actually refers to locust beans, also known as carob beans. Some describe "Saint John's bread" or "manna bread" as being made of locust bean flour turned into a kind of Middle-eastern flat bread. John the Baptist's Beans, Not Bugs Today on Spiritual Awakening Radio With James Bean!

Spiritual Awakening Radio

In Sant Mat spirituality, meditation is successfully practiced when we keep the proper meditation posture, leave behind all our burdens, thoughts, worries, and worldly distractions behind, and focus all of our undivided attention on going within by way of the third eye so that we may reach that Sacred Secret Place of the Most High where Divine Grace is flowing, a great way of describing the benefit of meditation as being a kind of inner baptism or letting the waters of Divine Grace flow over the soul.

When describing the story from the gospels about Jesus Feeding the Five Thousand, the Miraculous Feeding of the Multitude, the early church father Irenaeus, writing between 180 and 188 AD, doesn't mention anything about fish, only bread! The historian Eusebius, Arnobius, and some other early Christian writings also never mention "fishes with the loaves", only the loaves. Today, we examine the case of the missing fish, variations between different manuscripts of the New Testament, including the example of a vegetarian saying of Jesus present in the Old Syriac-Aramaic Evangelion Da-Mepharreshe Gospels (Curetonian manuscript) but nowhere to be found in the Greek. This is another installment in a series of podcasts documenting the vegetarianism of the original Jesus Movement (Ebionites, Nasoreans, Grandchildren of the Essenes, Hebrew Christians, The Apostles/Disciples, Christianity-Before-Paul).
