Jerusalem carries many esoteric and symbolic meanings that directly relate to a spiritualized state in Man. Jerusalem means the City of Peace and also the Vision of Peace; however, when Jerusalem is spelled Urusalem (Uru-Salem/Ur-Salem) its meaning is then altered to “the foundation of Peace” and/or “the dwelling place of Light and Peace (Harmony).” In man, Jerusalem represents the abiding consciousness of spiritual peace, which is the result of self realization regarding Man’s spiritual power balanced with a serene spiritual confidence. Anatomically, Jerusalem, the Vision of Peace, symbolizes the hidden nerve center located behind the anatomical heart: the Occult Chamber of the Heart. From this chamber spirit radiates divine harmonics to all parts within the temple of man.
- 1 Corinthians 6:19 “Do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own.”
Around Jerusalem stand the walls that symbolize the balancing of the negative and positive forces of soul consciousness which protect the spiritual substance from penetrating errors of limited thought. This is presented in Philippians 4:7, “and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds.” The equalization of positive and negative forces results in the renewing and spiritualizing transformation within the divine organism of Spirit-Man. When the adept learns to travel to the depths of silence and to the recesses of stillness within the heart center, the “Theophanic Vision” of Allah is revealed in degrees. This is the phase of development where consciousness receives an upload in divine intelligence which projects the consciousness program from one plane of manifestation to another while activating higher spiritual functions within one of the many “Overself” vehicles.
The way to Jerusalem, the dwelling place of Light and Peace, is by way of the Higher Self through Moorish Meta-Psychic Introspection, through the perfect expression of all mental faculties, by way of the 12 occult nerves (12 gates of Jerusalem, 12 pairs of cranial nerves, 12 precious jewels, 12 Disciples) which are under the control of the “I Am,” through the covenant between the Asiatic self and the Messianic “Overself” which embodies the divine codes of mutual polarization and spirit communication between the soul intelligences and through the binding of the “I Am” consciousness of the planetary intelligence (Nasuwt) that becomes attached to the “I Am” of the advanced higher evolutionary brotherhood that occupy the angelic realms of Malakuwt (Surah 21:92, Surah 23:52). The way to meta-physical Jerusalem, the Foundation of Peace, and its attainment lies hidden with the esoteric definition of Moslem, the one who is of Peace and the one who dwells in a (constant) state of Peace (Harmony). The adept is surely on the way to attainment of Peace when he/she realizes ever present essence of Allah within.
The representation of Issa (Jesus, Eshu, Esu) traveling to Jerusalem symbolizes the final step that one takes to crucify the ego self (lower self) for the Higher Self to triumph in the personal jihad that takes place within. This progressive unfoldment also signifies the time when the spiritual “I Am” takes control and lifts all of the animalistic forces of “nafs” into the spiritual planes of Mastery by way of Love, Truth, Peace, Freedom and Justice. This is the divine substance for transmutation, transformation and transliteration.
Truth is first received in the heart of Man, of which Jerusalem symbolizes, but because of intellectual dominance, truth is capture by the intelligence of the “Lower Self” and confined to the bonds of calculated illusion which is crystallized by the ganglionic receptacle of thought. This place of intellectual feeling creates concepts of error that plague the mind with chemical cellular memories of joy and pain. However, within the dwelling place of light and peace, located in the love center (cardiac plexus), truth is regenerated for the purpose of redeeming itself, for the temple of Man, through religious bigotry and intolerance, becomes the chrysalis center for narrow crystallized thought. This level of thought crystallization hinders the development of divine love and the activation of the “Occult Chamber of the Heart: the Dwelling Place of Allah.” The reason is: Man creates a wall of separation between the secular and the religious, the good and the bad, and the chosen and the “not” chosen, thus developing a psycho-spiritual caste system.
When the radiant light of truth is blocked in the heart and sought to be killed by the animalistic ego self, the ruling intellect sees truth as an assassin who has been inciting a revolt against the intellectual faculty and deems it an enemy combatant that creates the plot for the “Battle for Jerusalem.” The conflict for Jerusalem on Earth is directly correlated with the battle for Jerusalem in Man: the battle between the Higher Self and the Lower Self.
The New Jerusalem of Revelation (21:2) is the triumphant spiritual consciousness that receives the prepared programs for the spiritualized transition ” for “Man is doomed to perfection.” The peace makers (Moslems) then commune with the Single Brotherhood of the angelic realms to experience the Jerusalem of the Higher World from which the biophysical Jerusalem (City of Melchizedek (al Khidr), Urusalim, Salem) is a model of. Once the program of New Jerusalem is accomplished, a new creation story will begin as Man is redeemed for his next phase of development in the grand plan of Allah.
This is further expressed in the symbology of Mt. Moriah, a mount in Jerusalem upon which Solomon built the Temple (Chronicles 3:1). Mt. Moriah, meaning the Vision of God (El Eloh, al-ilah “Allah”) represents the divine inspiration and insight from the occult chamber of the heart that expresses the divine will of Allah through the higher planes of consciousness in Man. The mount of Moriah, esoterically symbolize a high place of understanding and perception that is beyond material body consciousness. These higher planes, the soul, spirit and psychic planes of consciousness, are aligned here, in Mt. Moriah, the farthest Mosque as stated in the Quran.
- Surah 17:1 “Glory to Allah who did take his servant for a journey by night from the sacred Mosque to the farthest Mosque, whose precincts we did bless, in order that we might show him some of our signs: for he is the one who heareth and seeth (all things).”
The alignment of the consciousness planes with Jerusalem, on Mt. Moriah, awakens the adept to the divine plan (Will) of Allah which connects the Moorish Scientist to the fountain of light that is generated by the perpetual essence of Allah. This fountain of infinite wisdom radiates in the occult chamber of the heart and links the adept to the portals (realms) of higher creation which enlightens the Asiatic planes that are guided by the Single Brotherhood of Allah (Surah 21:92, Surah 23:52).
Shall each righteous, pure and persistent adept thrive to make a pilgrimage to the dwelling place of Light and Peace, Jerusalem, which is located in the farthest Mosque of Allah. May the pure in heart and intent experience their own personal “night of power (Surah 97:1-5),” an indefinite moment of enlightenment under the divine light of Allah.
