The original sin November 29, 2017
“But the leader has to come. Somebody has to lead human beings. If you do not get the leader, they do not venture into it. Normally, they venture into all darkness, never onto the right side. This is what is the original sin, which also we should understand. In the Christian mythology they talk of the original sin.
The original sin was committed because of the schema, style the human beings are, that God created human beings like animals, that’s symbolic. Now He gave them freedom. But innocence was there, and He told them: “Keep in innocence. There is no need to destroy your innocence, and try to know something. If you are innocent, obedient and if you remain as you are, you’ll become the Spirit. But in freedom you must live. You must have freedom. Because without freedom, how can you get the supreme freedom? So you have freedom.” He gave them freedom. The animals are not. They are pashu. They are in the pash. Pash means they are in the bondage. They are not free. Human beings are free. If you want you can be a scorpion, you can be a lion, you can be an elephant, you can be anything. So this freedom was given, and was told that: “Don’t eat the fruit of knowledge.”
Now this fruit of knowledge was what? This knowledge is “avidya”, that we know of, like creating atomic bomb. We drifted onto this. There was no need for us to know. And this, when we started knowing, where are we? At the brink of destruction. By knowing how this world is made and what are the things and about the science and all that, we reached the point where we thought we can now use this, and we are using it for our destruction.
But the idea was different. First, it was to be innocent, to become the Spirit and then to know about these things so that you have the wisdom. So the whole thing failed at that point. That’s why it’s the original sin people talk of. That’s the original sin. If we had waited, we had become Spirits and then we had seen to what all knowledge is. You are different. Then you use it for the purpose of the betterment.”

Homosexuality is a possession November 20, 2017
“I had a boy in New York who came to me who was like a boy, he had mustaches and everything, but talking like a woman, you know. I said what’s wrong with your … First I didn’t understand, you know, then they told me, “Mother he is something like that it is that and that.” I said all right.
But actually he was possessed by a woman. He was possessed by a woman. I removed that possession and he said now I look like and feel like a man and he started walking in a different way all together. He changed his gait and everything, and he was walking in a different way. Just imagine it was just a possession of a woman on him! So he was behaving like a woman and he was seeking a company of a man, instead of a woman, which he should seek. That’s the normal thing to do and he became abnormal.”

The auspiciousness October 15, 2017
“And all the men gathered around Jesus, and their faces shone with the desire to hear the words which would come from his lips. And he lifted his face to the rising sun, and the radiance of its rays filled his eyes as he spoke: …”
“And the Communions are fourteen in number,
As the Angels of the Heavenly Father
And the Angels of the Earthly Mother
And just as the roots of the tree
Sink into the earth and are nourished,
And the branches of the tree
Raise their arms to heaven,
So is man like the trunk of the tree,
With his roots deep
In the breast of his Earthly Mother,
And his soul ascending
To the bright stars of his Heavenly Father.
And the roots of the tree
Are the Angels of the Earthly Mother,
And the branches of the tree
Are the angels of the Heavenly Father.
And this is the sacred Tree of Life
Which stands in the Sea of Eternity.”
From ‘Communions’ in the Gospel of the Essenes, translated from the original Hebrew and Aramaic texts by Edmond Bordeaux Szekely
