It is an interesting week this upcoming one starting today, with Father’s day. A day that was for me, my own Father’s birthday. As Father’s day was not recognised by him, unlike Mother’s day which I was always led to believe was a church festival. But now I am father and my  dear wife has always celebrated her Father on this day.  It is an interesting day for not only is it day to be thankful for all the joy a Dad can bring to one’s life, but the flip side of the joy your children bring to your on life.

So more creative work with content on the church site 

So today I edited the current draft of the LOLSpaper as I felt the 47th quote was to wordy.

I also did the newspaper for the church with this fabrication. That I am not expecting to actually appear:

In today’s readings sheet there is a section that says: 

I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.

From Galatians 2v 20 


But what does this mean, well to be fair I have struggled with St Paul’s teachings, and I do not think I am qualified to advise others. However, for my own interest I went looking and this is what I came across.

There is a concept in the ancient mysteries of the “seven-fold” constitution of Man’s nature. This is something we are all aware of but not really, we all know we have a body, a soul and a spirit. This is the basic idea that St. Paul brings to Christianity again this has teachings from the mystery schools of old and in some sects of Christianity. For although once considered part of main stream teachings it has be overshadowed by damnation and salvation of one’s soul.  

The seven are:

 1. The Body, or Rupa.

 2. Vitality, or Prana-Jiva.

 3. Astral Body, or Linga-Sarira.

 4. Animal Soul, or Kama-Rupa

 5. Human Soul, or Manas.

 6. Spiritual Soul, or Buddhi.

 7. Spirit, or Atma,


 The body, Spiritual Soul and Sprit being part of the teachings of St. Paul for example:

And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. 

1 Thessalonians 5:23 

The Atma is Spirit, Buddhi is the highest power of intellection, that which discerns and judges, and Manas is Mind. They form the trinity that was allegorised in the Christianity as the Father, Son and Holy Ghost. 

So what does St Paul mean, in the first portion of scripture well, it is Jesus’ sacrifice for us to mend the spirit of man that was damaged when Adam and Eve were evicted from God’s divine presence. Therefore, as we all share the same divine spirit we also lost and gained from Jesus’ sacrifice.
