Many years ago I was amazed to find that many of the great spiritual works: The Twenty-third Psalm, The Lord's Prayer, the ten Beatitudes, Buddha's Eightfold Path, Hermes' Kybalion, the Essene Book of Moses, the Ten Commandments, and Genesis creation were all laid out according to the Law of Seven.
In respect to the Twenty-third Psalm and the Lord's Prayer, it was even possible to find that one of the verses was out of order in the Lord’s Prayer.
The correct order of each is as follows, using ‘The Lord is my Shepherd’ order (note that the order is God to man/woman):
1. ‘higher ‘do’
'The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.'
'Our Father which art in heaven. Hallowed be thy name.'
'He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul:'
'Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth as it is in heaven'
'He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Yea though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death. I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.'
'Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil'
'Thou prepareth a table before me'
'Give us this day our daily bread.'
'In the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil'
'And forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors.'
You will note that I have taken the verse in the Lord’s Prayer about ‘temptation’ and placed it above ‘daily bread’. However, look at the amazing correspondence because now ‘prepareth a table’ matches with ‘daily bread’! Also when the Twenty-third Psalm verse is cut after ‘before me’ and placed in front of ‘anointest my head with oil’, there is more sense in the phrase which shows that when confronted on the battlefield with the enemy one is the victor and is crowned king. This then matches perfectly with ‘forgive us our debts/trespasses’, representing the ‘Golden Rule’ of ‘turning the other cheek’ or in Buddhism ‘harmlessness’.
And thus we have the method of spiritual growth from item 5 to item one with 5 and 4 being the growth of Spirit and 3 and 2 being the Soul and then being reunited with God at 1.
Magnetic Disturbance(3x3=7) is the title of an earlier book of the author of this blog available now on Amazon and Barnes & Noble, which delves into the parallels of many of the great spiritual works. This book uses the words: "magnetic disturbance" on a nautical map together with the fact that there are seven major San Juan islands (with the three large ones forming a triangle as in Bermuda triangle) to bring about travel through time and space. The Stephens family is riding on a ferry in the San Juan Islands in Washington when a fog comes up and they are thrown back in time and space.
The three children each experience one of the forces of the spiritual Law of Three and the two parents experience the vibrations of the spiritual Law of Seven in a progression from one to seven. Some of the experiences are related to the past and future history of the San Juans, but, most importantly, each adventure helps to elucidate one of forces of the Law of Three or one of the vibrations of the Law of Seven. Eventually they are all reunited back on the ferry.
