When we use the “Tree of Life” in our teachings, we mean the emotional feeling of love that all humans are capable of experiencing; where “love” is the value that each of us places on our individual experiences that cause us to feel joy, as well as our personal experiences with others. (One can temporarily and artificially experience this type of love by taking the illegal drug that is known as “Molly” [MDMA]. If our brain can produce the feeling, it is evidence that it has the potential. However, we do not recommend taking this drug on a regular basis as it is artificial and can inhibit the brain in other ways.)
A fulness of joy can only be experienced when we are acting and being acted upon by our own free will. In other words, when we are doing what we want to do without any outside pressure from or responsibility towards another, we feel joy.
Little children are the perfect examples of a human experiencing, or not, a fulness of joy without any outside pressure from or responsibility towards another. Little children do not act to please another. They do not eat to please another, dress to please another, put on makeup to please another, nor do they act [play] to please another. They act to please their own individual self. They are happiest when they are allowed to act as they want and are acted upon in support of what they want.
Little children are inculcated (taught) to be a person who feels responsible to another for the other person’s happiness. A little child cries when the child is uncomfortable because the child’s immediate [free will] needs for happiness are not being met in some way. Crying causes a reaction from those upon whom the child is dependent for life’s necessities [a frown, facial demeanor of disappointment, scolding, etc.]. Even when a little child cries and the parent is genuinely concerned for the child’s welfare and happiness, the feeling and look of concern on the parent’s face teaches the little human that the parent’s happiness is directly tied to how the little child chooses to act.
In our mortal world today, none of us can come into the experience with the ability to act and be acted upon solely according to what makes each of us have the best individual experience possible. From the moment we are born, we begin to learn how we need to act in order to get what we want. We soon learn that most of our actions are about pleasing someone else and fulfilling that person’s desires and needs of happiness instead of our own.
Our parents teach us lessons about how special we are to the world … or to them. Our parents are our world. Pleasing our parents gets us a reward, a smile, a piece of candy, a laugh, a sense that our parent is happy, which makes us happy. Unlike all other animal life forms, humans find joy in seeing other humans happy and fulfilled. We have created animals [pets] that give us joy when they act according to how we expect pets to act, and we reward them the same way we reward children.
The Real Truth about life upon Earth will teach us that humans are responsible for the creation of all life upon Earth. Every form of life, from the smallest virus to the largest sea animal, was created by a human at some point during Earth’s history to fulfill the needs of that human or that human’s immediate family. The ancestry of every animal upon Earth can be traced back to the exact moment it was envisioned and created by a human for some purpose to fulfill the need of its creator.
Just like a modern-day Pitbull, Rottweiler, or German Shepherd, a lion, for one of many examples, was created by one of our ancient ancestors to be a pet that would protect a that person’s home and possessions from other humans or other invented species that were specifically bred and trained to protect and kill.
Consider people who lived near larger bodies of waters and wanted to protect their home boundaries: They invented crocodiles.
Modern crocodiles are not easily trained by humans because they were invented to serve a specific need to attack and kill other humans or their pets who invaded the crocodile creator’s space, kind of like a biological attack submarine. Crocodile DNA did not include anything that would perpetuate a pet-like nature. Over many years of living without humans, Earth’s animals became what they are today.
If you would like to visualize what happened millions of years ago [even billions when the First Dispensation of human existence started upon Earth], view this short film that presents the concept according to the limited understanding and “wisdom of the world.” It gives one a pretty good idea about what happened to all the pets created by the ancient bioengineers responsible for all life upon Earth.
Also, as you watch the following short presentation, consider what we have explained about how great civilizations of far superior technology and knowledge than what is modern could have easily disappeared without a trace of evidence that they once existed:
Moreso than little children, animals were and are easily trained to fulfill human desire by providing for or neglecting an animal’s basic necessities. From the largest, modern land animal [Elephant] to a large sea animal [Orca], humans have trained animals by withholding food or giving food. Little advanced humans who enter the experience of mortal life are trained in the same way.
The “world” in all its pride and wisdom, trains a little child that the child must do certain things in order to have enough money to be respected and not looked down upon with condescension by others. “Condescension” means: voluntary assumption of equality with a person regarded as inferior.
In other words, although you might be a human being too, if you are not successful in business, educated in the world’s knowledge and wisdom [attended college], have a particular skill or talent that others like or need, do not dress or act like the world expects you to, you are allowed to live upon Earth but you are seen as inferior to those who are successful or talented and contribute to society.
How many children have heard that they need to become “a contributing member of society”? What does this mean exactly?
It means fulfilling the needs of others in spite of the developing child’s own needs. If the child wants to sit at home all day in the child’s room and listen to music, the child is not considered a contributing member of society. If the child wants to dress differently, travel around the world and meet people, if the child doesn’t do something that earns the money to buy their clothes and to travel, the child is not considered a contributing member of society.
“Take pride in yourself,” is often a parent’s condescending advice to the child. What part of what the child is doing according to the child’s free will is not taking pride in what the child wants out of life?
In the upcoming book, The Dream of Mortal Life, Understanding Human Reality–A Final Warning to the Human Race, we will explain how mortals began to create children sexually and through perceived natural ways that hardly provide an experience of joy, especially for a woman who goes through labor pains, or for parents who have to raise one who they consider to be a rebellious and out-of-control child. We will give details about how humans first appeared upon Earth as adult advanced humans, all equal, all with equal opportunity and ability to partake of the mortal experience for their own unique benefit, and how they eventually began to produce human bodies the way that bodies are produced today, which led Joseph to put the following part in his symbolic endowment of the Real Truth:
ELOHIM: Eve, because thou hast hearkened to the voice of Satan, and hast partaken of the forbidden fruit and given unto Adam, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception. In sorrow shalt thou bring forth children; nevertheless, thou mayest be preserved in childbearing. Thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee in righteousness.
(NOTE: the modern LDS/Mormon leaders corrupted the original endowment and changed this part.)
The “forbidden fruit” to which Joseph alluded above is the “Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil.” It is mortal life as we know it today. It is a lack of knowledge of the Real Truth of who we are and why we exist. It is the fact that, among many other things, the female body was created purposely to have children, in a very painful way, but still allows the woman to live in most cases, and be weaker than the male so that the male can control the female.
The earth was prepared so that humans could live upon it and “eat of every tree,” or in other words, find joy and happiness in the mortal experience as each person upon the earth pursues whatever it is that they desire according to their individual free will. This was the “Garden of Eden” provided with the perfect environment for human existence, where [for example] humans had dominion over the lions, tigers, and bears that now attack and kill humans.
ELOHIM: Adam (and) Eve, we have created for you this earth, and have placed upon it all kinds of vegetation and animal life. We have commanded all these to multiply in their own sphere and element. We give you dominion over all these things, and make you Adam, lord over the whole earth and all things on the face thereof. We now command you and Eve to multiply and replenish the earth, that you may have joy and rejoicing in your posterity. We have also planted for you this garden, wherein we have placed all manner of fruits, flowers, and vegetation. Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat, but of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil thou shalt not eat; nevertheless, thou mayest choose for thyself, for it is given unto thee. But remember that I forbid it; for in the day thou eatest thereof, thou shalt surely die.
Once we decided to do things contrary to our own advanced common sense (represented by the commands of Elohim), we began to experience what is considered the “fall of humankind.” We began to do things (eat of the tree that we knew we shouldn’t eat from) that were not supportive of our divine nature as advanced human beings. It was our choice. We began “eating the fruit.” Once we did, we fell into a state where we began to lose connection with our true humanity.
Once we started creating our own posterity (children) for our own selfish needs and not for the pure sake of the child, we began acting differently than we acted as advanced humans. Consider what we wrote about the reason for which mortals want children:
“Children are not consciously desired to guarantee the perpetuation of the species, but to give more credibility and support to the individuals who create them. A father and mother validate themselves by their children. Most family rules and expectations are set, not to allow the children to become individuals, but to further the selfish desires of the parents to maintain their own individuality. When a child eventually becomes aware that his or her existence is no longer dependent upon the parent, and that his or her self is more important than the whole of the family, a rebellion ensues. This ultimately brings heartache and instability to the family unit, which was instituted, not for the sake of the child, but for the parent.” (666, The Mark of America, page 7.)
“In sorrow thou shalt bring forth children.” How many people live in sorrow because their children do not turn out the way that the parent expected? How many children turn against their parents’ desires for them and pursue their own thing?
Once we lived long enough upon Earth as mortals, we soon forgot a lot about our divine nature as human beings and the true purpose for which the earth existed in the first place. Our human nature began to change. The value [love] that we once had for our self and for all other equal advanced humans soon changed. Having forgotten all, we began to consider our own existence as more important than the existence of other humans. We began to fear that as another became more “worldly,” our individual self-worth and purpose in life would diminish. This fear led to the demise of the advanced human race that lived during the First Dispensation of Human Time. Humans simply forgot who they actually were and why they existed.
In order for our mortal Self to learn about our mistakes, those who remained upon Earth who actually remembered who we are and why we exist, or rather, those who never forgot, didn’t explain the Real Truth to us. It wouldn’t have mattered if they did. We would have rejected the Real Truth anyway and killed those who tried to explain it to us. But for our own sakes, so that we could learn that what we chose to do as mortals in the “Garden of Eden” was not what we should have chosen for our mortal experience on Earth, “Cherubim and the flaming sword” was placed in front of the “Tree of Life.”
Here’s how this allegoric term was presented by Joseph:
SNS, page 95-96
So long as humans exist in mortality, (while “Satan is there”—meaning that we have “fallen” and partaken of the “forbidden fruit”), a complete understanding of real truth is not intended to be a part of the plan set forth for us. This is so that we can have an existence where we can experience opposition to the perfect world from whence we came. As explained previously, “cherubim and the flaming sword (turn all away from) the Tree of Life.” If the fullness of the truth was known, mortality would lose its probative value, in that we would not be able to weigh the difference between a perfect world controlled by the eternal laws of our Creators and one in which nature is left to itself to unravel into a controlled chaos. Without the “laws of God,” free-willed beings are in control of everything, having “dominion over…the whole earth”—making man the “god of this world.” Though we may feel what is the right thing to do, we often act in opposition to our conscience. This is because of the power that we have been given to choose and act for ourselves, and the fact that we cannot remember anything of our past existence.
“Without disclosing your identity” is simply the mandate given to true prophets of God to teach the people in such a way that the real truth remains hidden from them. When prophets follow this divinely-mandated pedagogy, the people rarely understand the true reason for being left on an earth to themselves without the intervention of the Advanced Human Beings who put them here. Unable to remember, mortals naturally give in to the enticings of the flesh (Lucifer/Satan), and thus it is said that “he” rules over them.
Our probation period upon this earth proves that most free-willed beings will not exercise discretion if given power over others or over the laws of nature. This life is a time to prove to ourselves that we are not capable of being trusted with the power of a God. The analogy of an employee and how he or she acts and performs his or her job when the boss is not around gives a proper understanding of why most of us cannot be trusted with responsibility. Every human being who has been put into a position of power upon this earth in mortality has failed to treat all equally in righteousness. Well was it said that, though we have all been “called” (created) to be free-willed beings, few are “chosen” to control the “powers of heaven”:
“Behold, there are many called, but few are chosen. And why are they not chosen? Because their hearts are set so much upon the things of this world, and aspire to the honors of men, that they do not learn this one lesson—That the the rights of the priesthood (ascribed to the “Robes of the Holy Priesthood” as presented in the endowment) are inseparably connected with the powers of heaven, and that the powers of heaven cannot be controlled nor handled only upon the principles of righteousness.” (D&C 121:34–6)
Later in the presentation of the endowment, Peter, James, and John are sent down, “in their true character, as apostles of the Lord Jesus Christ.” At that time, “Satan” is “cast out.” (This will be explained in greater detail later.) What is important to understand is that, while we are mortal, it is expected that “…Satan is there,” in order to “learn whether Adam has been true to the token and sign given to him in the Garden of Eden.” Mortality is the time that we, as free-willed beings, are being tested on how well we listen to and act on the sure feelings of our conscience (the token and sign [foundation of experience and learning] given to us in the Garden of Eden) or to see if we choose to follow the enticements of the flesh.
If we truly knew that real messengers of our Creator were among us (as they are), and if God and angels were allowed to be visible in the flesh, we would be prone to act appropriately. If we knew of Them, by virtue of Their continual presence we would be spurred to act appropriately, and would then know the true reason for our mortal state. This would invalidate the purpose of mortality by restricting the full exercise of our free agency to act according to our unrestricted mortal nature. Thus, “their true identity” is kept from us.
Recently, we allowed and encouraged Christopher (our True Messenger who discloses his true identity) to end the lawsuit against one of our enemies so that the courts of this world would no longer have any power over him. The Idaho judge in the case was prejudiced against Christopher from the beginning. Had the matter gone to trial, Christopher’s chances for justice would have been diminished by this trial judge. We are deciding on an appeal of the judge’s eventual default judgment. But whatever we decide to do in regards to the courts of this world, we will not allow our enemies to impede our messenger in fulfilling the role we need him to fulfill.
We could have revealed ourselves, our power, our knowledge, and our abilities to the world to prove the truthfulness of Christopher’s claims. As stated above, “If we [revealed ourselves], by virtue of [Our] continual presence, [mortals] would be spurred to act appropriately, and would then know the true reason for [their] mortal state. This would invalidate the purpose of mortality by restricting the full exercise of [their] free agency to act according to [their] unrestricted mortal nature. Thus, “[our] true identity” is kept from [them].”
Even if we revealed ourselves, the world would invalidate our existence* and many would try to kill us because our existence negates the wisdom of the world and invalidates what most of the world believes is truth, whether this truth is encompassed in religion or science. The Real Truth invalidates all religion and all science. What we know, we have shared with Christopher. Through him, we have explained how to end poverty and restore unconditional free will to the mortal experience so that a child may be born upon Earth and have their life necessities fully provided for. That way the child may pursue a mortal experience of their own free will and choice, as it was intended. We have explained many things through Christopher and will explain all things through the upcoming book, The Dream of Mortal Life.
*This note is from Christopher:
Yeah, the Bros could reveal themselves, and what would the world see? Two of them lack any gender at all and have nerves where normal blood vessels are supposed to be. So, the world would just think that someone used cloning and bioengineering technology to create their bodies. The other two look like a couple of Trump’s illegal aliens from South America and would probably be arrested on the spot for suspicion of illegally entering the U.S. These two do not have the protective nature in their physical bodies, as their mortal bodies were not created until the Fifth Dispensation, when mortals were created, not to look like un-gendered advanced humans, but as we do today.
The Bros have no special magical powers that would keep people from trying to kill them, except two of them cannot be killed unless they want to be killed because their bodies have a natural energy field, very similar to the atmosphere surrounding Earth. Consider how much energy and heat is produced when something is falling into Earth’s atmosphere from space. Most objects don’t have the energy or protection to make it through Earth’s atmosphere before they burn up. If Earth, an inanimate (supposedly) object has this force field around it, can you imagine the force field an advanced, living organism (human) can produce? But anyways …
What good would it do if the Bros revealed themselves anyways? Would the world listen to their message? Is the world listening to mine? All I do is tell the world what the Bros would tell them … what they tell me. There are other people in my life who have met the Bros, others who have seen the “Urim and Thummim” work, and even held the “plates with the appearance of gold.” Where are these people now? They’ve moved on. (Well, one had a major stroke that took away all of his memories of his personal experiences with the Bros.) Although these few have yet … I say “yet” … to become my enemies, the same exact thing happened to Joseph Smith in his day. Every one of the three men who actually saw the physical “plates” left Joseph and “moved on.” One became his bitter enemy.
Even if I would have revealed all that Echthros was asking me to reveal in court about the Bros, the judge would have shit on their existence and not believed that they were who they claimed to be. Because if the Bros exist, then everything about Echthros, the judge, the law … everything about the entire world diminishes in value. Who would Echthros be then? Just an angry bald man who has no other value to his life. The judge would lose all his value. These men will fight to the end to save their self-worth and value to the world. Both will laud themselves as men who stood up to me and proved me to be a fraud and engaged in racketeering … Yeah, really. Just like I’m a murderer, pedophile, sexual predator, terrorist, cult leader, and danger to society … But anyways. 🙂
God, I was happy when I was allowed to drop the case in front of the Idaho judge to refile in Federal Court. Yeah, probably will not be treated much better in front of a Federal judge, but Echthros loses his backwoods judge and lawyer and will have to travel to a more impartial setting to pursue his bullshit fraud and racketeering charges in defense of his obvious defamation. It’s the Bros’ call. But anyways …
We describe “the Tree of Life” as “a tree, whose fruit [is] desirable to make one happy.” It is the only way to “eat” (act and be acted upon”) that will bring lasting joy to a person’s existence. “The fruit thereof [is] the most sweet, above all that [anyone could possibly] taste … the fruit thereof [is] white, to exceed all the whiteness [anyone could possibly perceive]. When one partakes of this fruit it will fill their soul with exceedingly great joy. And once they “eat thereof,” one will begin “to be desirous that [one’s] family should partake of it also; for [one will know] that it [is] desirable above all other fruit.”
The Tree of Life is the love, the value, that the true god places on all things. Therefore, “Yea, it is the love of God, which sheddeth itself abroad in the hearts of the children of men; wherefore, it is the most desirable above all things.”
We all start out uncorrupted by the world and its pride and wisdom. Little children can only express the human that they are actually are: advanced human beings with a perfect love [value] for all things, for their self and for every other human.
When a child is born into this world, it’s as if the child is born into a “dream” in which they appear in a “dark and dreary wilderness.” It is “dark” because the child does not see [cannot remember] the true light of their advanced Self. It is “dreary” because the world does not support the child’s true sense of Self. It’s as if it is a “dark and dreary waste,” in that the world is a “waste” of a person’s existence because of what a person is forced to do when one is born into this world (lone and dreary world), wasting the child’s true purpose for entering mortality.
The child is faced with a raging river of information, worldly purpose and expectations … a river supplied with water from a “fountain of filthy water, yea, even the river of which he spake; and the depths thereof are the depths of hell,” depression, anxiety, and emotional turmoil that the growing child feels as “the mists of darkness arise … which blindeth the eyes, and hardeneth the hearts of the children of men, and leadeth them away into broad roads, that they perish and are lost.”
The child stands at “the head thereof a little way off [of the Tree of Life]; and they [stand] as if they [know] not whither they should go.”
It’s as if “numberless concourses of people [are] pressing forward [in life], that they might obtain the path which [leads to the Tree of Life]”; pressing forward trying to find the true meaning of life, a true understanding of who they are and why they exist. But as they commence in the path which leads to the tree … there arose a mist of darkness; yea, even an exceedingly great mist of darkness, insomuch that they who had commenced in the path did lose their way, that they wandered off and were lost.”
But the path is there. And there is a “rod of iron,” which is the Real Truth, which is established through this Marvelous Work and a Wonder® by the command of our individual Christ, by the Spirit of Christ given to every person who is born into this world that they may know the good from the evil. It is this feeling, this spirit, that compels us on the path to a full knowledge of the Real Truth about who we are and why we exist.
There are some, a few, who hold on to the “rod of iron” and press forward along the path towards the Tree of Life. These few come forth and partake of the fruit and taste its deliciousness. They began to see who they actually are, equal advanced humans participating in mortal life together, equally, no one above another, no other allowed to determine for them what their life should be or how they should act or allow themselves to be acted upon. As they taste of the fruit, they begin to realize their own individual importance and value and worth … the true love of God which sheddeth itself abroad in the hearts of the children of men; wherefore, it is the most desirable above all things.” It is the most desirable because the person begins to love and value their Self above all, but they also value all others the same, each person as an equal advanced human being!
But then … many, as they begin to realize that they do not need to give heed to the vain and foolish imaginations and pride of the world, of religion, of science, of philosophy, of worldly success and glory, everything in which the rest of the world takes and gains pride and success, honor and money, they are mocked by everyone else in the world.
These many … “after they had partaken of the fruit of the tree they did cast their eyes about as if they were ashamed.” They are ashamed because “on the other side of the river of water, a great and spacious building; and it stood as it were in the air, high above the earth. And it was filled with people, both old and young, both male and female; and their manner of dress was exceedingly fine; and they were in the attitude of mocking and pointing their fingers towards those who had come at and were partaking of the fruit. And after they had tasted of the fruit they were ashamed, because of those that were scoffing at them; and they fell away into forbidden paths and were lost.”
“The large and spacious building … is vain imaginations and the pride of the children of men..”
One whose only desire, for example, is to sit around all day in his room and listen to and compose his own music, something he enjoys, who doesn’t want to dress in an exceedingly fine manner, who grows his hair out, smokes a little weed in order to suppress the “hell” that he feels because he is being mocked by the world for not meeting its expectations, this one feels might feel ashamed for ‘partaking of the Tree of Life,” the true love of the Self, and of others. But if this one doesn’t heed the mocking, and this one doesn’t care if others pursue riches, wealth, education, and the things of the world, this one “heeds them not” and stays true to his true Self. No matter how “great was the multitude that did enter into that strange building … no matter how after they did enter into that building they did point the finger of scorn at [him in his room, with long hair, smoking a joint] … [he] heeded them not.”
“For as many as heeded them, had fallen away [from the desires and will of their true Self] … and by the temptations of mortal human nature [or rather, what we have become] these are taken captive and experience “hell” upon Earth.
There is nothing about the world’s wisdom and knowledge (the filthy fountain producing a raging river of water), nothing of its pride and glory (the large and spacious building) that is good. There is nothing being done in this world that is of any worth to the “children of men” and the purpose for which humans exist upon Earth … except for one thing:
This Marvelous Work and a Wonder®.
This is the work by which our advanced selves are revealing everything hidden since the foundation of the world, all of the mysteries of God in their fullness. It is the Tree of Life.
One can either partake of its fruit and be convinced of what it will take to change this world back into what it used to be so that we can live in peace and have life eternal, or rather, have a mortal world where our advanced selves can come to have the right kind of experience, or one can wander off in strange roads “because of the hardness of their hearts and the blindness of their minds unto their being brought down into captivity, and also into destruction, both temporally and spiritually, according to the captivity of their human nature, of which we have spoken.”
This work is the “condescension of God.” It is our advanced Selves condescending to our mortal Selves, hoping that our mortal minds can grasp the importance of the Real Truth about who we are and why we exist. It is the “work of the Lamb” as we have presented it through scripture:
“Therefore, wo be unto the Gentiles if it so be that they harden their hearts against the Lamb of God. For the time cometh, saith the Lamb of God, that I will work a great and a marvelous work among the children of men; a work which shall be everlasting, either on the one hand or on the other—either to the convincing of them unto peace and life eternal, or unto the deliverance of them to the hardness of their hearts and the blindness of their minds unto their being brought down into captivity, and also into destruction, both temporally and spiritually, according to the captivity of the devil, of which I have spoken.”
And thus have we spoken.
