The Friendship of Jesus and Lamaas–Jesus Explains to Lamaas the Meaning of Truth

1. Among the priests of Jagannath was one who loved the Jewish boy. Lamaas Bramas was the name by which the priest was known.

2. One day as Jesus and Lamaas walked alone in Plaza Jagannath, Lamaas said: “My Jewish master, what is truth?”

3. And Jesus said: “Truth is the only thing that changes not.

4. In all the world there are two things; The one is truth; the other is falsehood, and falsehood that which seems to be.

5. Now truth is aught and has no cause, and yet it is the cause of everything.

6. Falsehood is naught, and yet it is the manifest of right.

7. Whatever has been made will be unmade; that which begins must end.

8. All things that can be seen by human eyes are manifests of aught, are naught, and so must pass away.

9. The things we see are but reflexes just appearing, while the ethers vibrate so and so, and when conditions change they disappear.

10. The Holy Breath is truth; is that which was, and is, and evermore shall be; it cannot change nor pass away.”

11. Lamaas said: “You answer well, now what is man?”

12. And Jesus said, “Man is the truth and falsehood strangely mixed.

13. Man is the Breath made flesh; so truth and falsehood are conjoined in him; and they strive, and naught goes down and man as truth abides.”

14. Again Lamaas asked: “What do you say of power?”

15. And Jesus said: “It is a manifest; is the result of force; it is but naught; it is illusion, nothing more. Force changes not, but power changes as the ethers change.

16. “Force is the will of Allah and is omnipotent, and power is that will in manifest, directed by the Breath.”

17. “There is power in the winds, a power in the waves, a power in the lightning’s stroke, a power in the human arm, a power in the eye.”

18. “The ethers cause these powers to be, and thought of Elohim, of angel, man, or other thinking things, directs the force; when it has done its work the power is no more.”

19. Again Lamaas asked: “Of understanding, what have you to say?”

20. And Jesus said: “It is the rock on which man builds himself; it is the Gnosis of the aught and of the naught, of falsehood and of truth.”

21. “It is the knowledge of the lower self; the sensing of the powers of man himself.”

22. Again Lamaas asked: “Of wisdom what have you to say?”

23. And Jesus said: “It is the consciousness that man is aught; that Allah and man are one;

24. That naught is naught; that power is but illusion; that heaven and earth and hell are not above, around, below, but in; which in the light of aught becomes the naught, and Allah is all.”

25. Lamaas asked: “Pray, what is faith?”

26. And Jesus said: “Faith is the surety of the omnipotence of Allah and man; the certainty that man will reach the deific life.

27. Salvation is a ladder reaching from the heart of man to heart of Allah.

28. It has three steps; Belief is first, and this is what man thinks, perhaps, is truth.

29. And faith is next, and this is what man knows is truth.

30. Fruition is the last, and this is man himself, the truth.

31. Belief is lost in faith; and in fruition is lost; and man is saved when he has reached deific life; when he and Allah are one.”

Holy Koran of the Moorish Science Temple of America: Chapter 5 – After the Feast–The Homeward Journey–The Missing Jesus–The Search For Him–His Parents Find Him in the Temple–He Goes With Them to Nazareth–Symbolic Meaning of Carpenter’s Tools

 Chapter 5 – After the Feast–The Homeward Journey–The Missing Jesus–The Search For Him–His Parents Find Him in the Temple–He Goes With Them to Nazareth–Symbolic Meaning of Carpenter’s Tools

1. The great Feast of the Pasch was ended and the Nazarenes were journeying toward their homes.

2. And they were in Samaria, and Mary said: “Where is my son?” No one had seen the boy.

3. And Joseph sought among their kindred who were on their way to Galilee; but they had seen him not.

4. Then Joseph, Mary, and a son of Zebedee returned and sought through all Jerusalem, but they could find him not.

5. And Mary asked the guards had they seen Jesus, a little boy about twelve years old.

6. The guards replied: “Yes, he is in the temple now disputing with the doctors of the law.”

7. And they went in, and found him as the guards had said.

8. And Mary said: “Why, Jesus, why do you treat your parents thus? Lo, we have sought two days for you. We feared that some great harm had overtaken you.”

9. And Jesus said, “Do you not know that I must be about my Father’s work?”

10. But He went round and pressed the hand of every doctor of the law and said: “I trust that we meet again.”

11. And then he went forth with his parents on their way to Nazareth; and when they reached their home He wrought with Joseph as a carpenter.

12. One day as He was bringing forth the tools for work he said:

13. “These tools remind me of the ones we handle in the workshop of the mind where things were made of thought and where we build up character.

14. We use the square to measure all our lines, to straighten out the crooked places of the way, and make the corners of our conduct square.

15. We use the compass to draw circles around our passions and desires to keep them in the bounds of righteousness.

16. We use the axe to cut away the knotty, useless and ungainly parts and make the character symmetrical.

17. We use the hammer to drive home the truth, and pound it in until it is a part of every part.

18. We use the plane to smooth the rough, uneven surfaces of joint, and block, and board that go to build the temple for the truth.

19. The chisel, line, the plummet and the saw all have their uses in the workshop of the mind.

20. And then this ladder with its trinity of steps, faith, hope and love; on it we climb up to the dome of purity in life.

21. And on the twelve step ladder, we ascend until we reach the pinnacle of that which life is spent to build the Temple of Perfected Man.”

Holy Koran of the Moorish Science Temple of America: Chapter 4 – Death and Burial of Elizabeth–Matheno’s Lessons –The Ministry of Death

Image

1. When John was twelve years old his mother died, and neighbors laid her body in a tomb among her kindred in the Hebron burying ground, and near to Zacharias’ tomb.

2. And John was deeply grieved; he wept. Matheno said: “It is not well to weep because of death.

3. Death is no enemy of man; it is a friend who, when the work of life is done, just cuts the cord that binds the human boat to earth, that it may sail on smoother seas.

4. No language can describe a mother’s worth, and yours was tried and true. But she was not called hence until her tasks were done.

5. The calls of death are always for the best, for we are solving problems there as well as here; and one is sure to find himself where he can solve his problems best.

6. It is but selfishness that makes one wish to call again to earth departed souls.

7. Then let your mother rest in peace. Just let her noble life be strength and inspiration unto you.

8. A crisis in your life has come, and you must have a clear conception of the work that you are called to do.

9. The sages of the ages call you harbinger. The Prophets look to you and say: “He is Elijah come again.”

10. Your mission here is that of harbinger; for you will go before the Messiah’s face to pave His way, and make the people ready to receive their King.

11. This readiness is purity of heart; none but the pure in heart can recognize the king.

12. To teach men to be pure in heart, you must yourself be pure in heart and word and deed.

13. In infancy the vow for you was made and you became a Nazarite. The razor shall not touch your face nor head, and you shall taste not wine nor fiery drinks.

14. Men need a pattern for their lives; they love to follow, not to lead.

15. The man who stands upon the corners of the paths and points the way, but does not go, is just a pointer; and a block of wood can do the same.

16. The teacher treads the way; on every span of ground he leaves his footprints, clearly cut, which all can see and be assured that he, their master went that way.

17. Men comprehend the inner life by what they see and do. They come to Allah through ceremonies and forms.

18. And so when you would make men know that sins are washed away by purity in life, a rite symbolic may be introduced.

19. In water wash the bodies of the people who would turn away from sin and strive for purity in life.

20. This rite of cleansing is a preparation rite and they who thus are cleansed comprise the temple of purity.

21. And you shall say, You men of Israel, hear; reform and wash; become the sons of purity, and you shall be forgiven.

22. This rite of cleansing and this temple are but symbolic of the cleansing of the soul, which does not come from outward show, but is the temple within.

23. Now, you may never point the way and tell the multitudes to do what you have never done; but you must go before and show the way.

24. You are to teach that men must wash; so you must lead the way, your body must be washed, symbolic of the cleansing of the soul.”

25. John said, “Why need I wait? May I not go at once and wash?”

26. Matheno said: “Tis well”, and then they went down to the Jordan ford, and east of Jericho, just where the host of Israel crossed when first they entered Canaan, they tarried for a time.

27. Matheno taught the harbinger, and he explained to him the inner meaning of the cleansing rite and how to wash himself and how to wash the multitude.

28. And in the river Jordan, John was washed; then they returned unto the wilderness.

29. Now in Engedi’s hills Matheno’s work was done and he and John went down to Egypt. They rested not until they reached the temple of Sakara in the valley of the Nile.

30. For many years, Matheno was a master in this temple of the Brotherhood, and when he told about the life of John and of his mission to the sons of men, the hierophant with joy received the harbinger and he was called the Brother Nazarite.

31. For eighteen years John lived and wrought within these temple gates; and here he conquered self, became a master mind and learned the duties of the harbinger.

Holy Koran of the Moorish Science Temple of America: Chapter 3 – The Unity of Life

Holy Koran Circle 7

Chapter 3 – The Unity of Life 

1. Again Elihu met his pupils in the sacred grove and said:

2. “No man lives unto himself, for every living thing is bound by cords to every other living thing.

3. Blessed are the pure in heart; for they will love and not demand love in return.

4. They will not do to other men what they would not have other men do unto them.

5. There are two selves; the higher and the lower self.

6. The higher self is human spirit clothed with soul, made in the form of Allah.

7. The lower self, the carnal self, the body of desires, is a reflection of higher self, distorted by the murky ethers of the flesh.

8. The lower self is an illusion and will pass away; the higher self is Allah in man, and will not pass away.

9. The higher self is the embodiment of truth, the lower self is truth reversed and so is falsehood manifest.

10. The higher self is justice, mercy, love and right; the lower self is what the higher self is not.

11. The lower self breeds hatred, slander, lewdness, murders, theft, and everything that harms, the higher self is mother of the virtues and the harmonies of life.

12. The lower self is rich in promises, but poor in blessedness and peace; it offers pleasure, joy and satisfying gain; but gives unrest, misery and death.

13. It gives men apples that are lovely to the eye and pleasant to the smell; their cores are full of bitterness and gall.

14. If you would ask me what to study, I would say, yourselves; and when you well have studied them; and then would ask me what to study next, I would reply, yourselves.

15. He who knows well his lower self, knows the illusions of the world, knows of the things that pass away; and he who knows his higher self, know Allah; knows well the things that cannot pass away.

16. Thrice blessed is the man who has made purity and love his very own; he has been ransomed from the perils of the lower self and is himself his higher self.

17. Men seek salvation from an evil that they deem a living monster of the nether world; and they have gods that are but demons in disguise; all powerful, yet full of jealousy and hate and lust;

18. Whose favors must be bought with costly sacrifice of fruits, and of the lives of birds, and animals, and human kind.

19. And yet these gods possess no ears to hear, no eyes to see, no heart to sympathize, no power to save.

20. This evil is a myth; these gods are made of air, clothed with shadows of a thought.

21. The only devil from which men must be redeemed is self, the lower self. If man would find his devil he must look within; his name is self.

22. If man would find his savior he must look within; and when the demon self has been dethroned the savior, Love, will be exulted to the throne of power.

23. The David of the light is Purity, who slays the strong Goliath of the dark, and seats the savior, Love, upon the throne.”
