Easter / Pesach

The meaning of the exodus described in the Bible shows man how he/she can free himself from the world of contradictions.

Not as flight but through reconciliation and redemption.

On the first day of creation, God separated Light and Darkness. Day and night. Man is placed between these opposites and also bears them. Through a long road of reincarnations he/she learns to experience both sides of the spectrum. Until he/she comes to redemption through reconciliation and the last obstacle overcomes Death.

With the life of Jesus, his death and resurrection, the Way is revealed. Jesus said, “I and the Father are one,” and yet Calvary was yet to come.


The Torah
The Torah

The Torah, the Jewish holy book, comes from the Hebrew word bara, which means to become pregnant. The Torah is pregnant and reveals . The words are born and sown and spread over the earth. Some are suffocated by the weeds or fall on a hard ground or are picked up by the birds. But there is also a part in the good soil.

God gives his gift in ten words on Mount Sinai. The mountain is set in the wilderness, Sin, where temptation is. Sina means hate, darkness. She is the counterpart of Love. God reveals himself on the mountain of hatred.

It is the mountain that reveals the hidden. The mountain is associated with hiding; the hidden opens in the silence on the mountain . The ten words come from God that help him come out of the temptation of the wilderness. And when you have understood that, you go the way. Understanding is understanding, both sides. Understanding is also confidence, standing/going on your own two feet.


When the journey out of the desert is completed, the Word can be born and the Son appears. Then man enters the way of transfiguration.

Easter and Pentecost are the final stages of the Way revealed and realized by the Son.

The first exodus of man as a living soul is from the garden of Eden. His last exodus is the death on the cross followed by the resurrection as the life-giving Spirit.

At the beginning of the road there are two trees standing in Eden.

According to Jewish tradition, the one tree that bears the fruits of knowledge and the other tree without fruits is that of Life. Eating the fruit tree man loses Eden and enters the world of duality. Eden means happiness.

They say happiness is with the stupid. Stupidity presupposes naivety, guilelessness. Like a small child still sunk in the unconsciousness of Being. But man is created in the image of God. And with the last exodus, Easter, the sacrifice is made, which frees man from the tree of knowledge. The Light will reveal itself in the Atonement, Pentecost.

In Hebrew letters, consonants are seen as the body. Vowels are the mind, Ruach.

Ruach also means wind. You cannot capture or capture the spirit/wind. The Divine soul, Shama, is breathed in by God. Shama comes with the spiritual wind. It is divided into the two nostrils and two lungs.

The left belongs to the feminine and the right to the masculine. The mind is then dualistic. Just like the wind always blows from two angles. At the end of all soul experiences that are lived in a human birth comes the last exodus from this anguish: the resurrection. But first there is Gestsemané and the crucifixion.


With the exodus from Eden, the soul is plunged into the veil of ignorance and every soul begins his/her pilgrimage.

Fruits presuppose a development: seed, ripening, the fruit, rot and decay. Only the seed remains and a new fruit arises from it.

A process that repeats itself over and over.

Jewish tradition does not describe what fruit the tree of knowledge bore. But an apple is used as a metaphor. An apple is peeled before it is eaten. The husk envelops that which is not eaten, it falls to the ground and rots. Skin and skin are closely connected as an image. The shell encases the core.

The shell indicates a boundary and boundaries have their limitations. Shells belong to the darkness. Where death has its dominion. Shells are also related to boundaries and the definitions given to them. Judging and condemning. The issues of the day.

The OT tells the story of the prodigal son.

The story (parable) is as follows:

swineherdThe son wants to go out into the wide world and asks his father for his share of the inheritance. He gets his share and leaves the house. Following his nose, he travels the world. He does what he pleases and chases through the acquired inheritance. Completely penniless, he finds a job as a swineherd. These pigs feed on husks. Pigs feed on husks, darkness. This is why a Jew does not eat pork.

Driven by hunger, he desired to feed on the husks, but no one gave it to him, says the text. The son wanted to eat the peels, mad with hunger. And in that utter distress, he remembered his father. He repented, that is, repentance and understanding, and decided to go back to his father.

His father joyfully awaits him and welcomes him with new clothes and a feast.

His brother is angry because he is not getting the recognition he deserves for years of loyalty to his father and the work. His father says to him, “Child, you are always with me, and all that is mine is yours. We must rejoice and celebrate because your brother was dead and has come to life!”

It shows us that for the father there is no distinction in his children. The soul power in the son had withstood the last temptation and through the insight it had returned rich. The faith that the father had placed in his son when he handed over the portion of the inheritance was confirmed with his return. Faith, not by outside assumptions or imposed by others, no, this comes from love. To love is based on trust, knowing.

Experiences are necessary to come to Consciousness. So repentant means to repent.

At the end on the narrow path of Self-realization man carries the tree of knowledge with him to Calvary. The narrow path is also pictured on the tabernacle. On the tabernacle are two angels, those of death and those of life. The upper ends of their wings just miss each other, a small space remains open. This space symbolizes the narrow path of transfiguration.

The tree of knowledge is judgment and death, from which man wants to be delivered. It has become a cross. The fruits of knowledge and experience no longer feed him. Gilgoleth is the Hebrew word for Calvary. The cross,

Thaw, has four arms. These are the four directions from which everything emerges. And with this cross, the sacrifice of the tree of knowledge, everything comes to fulfillment. It is finished and the tree of life emerges.

Golgotha ​​means skull place and is associated with the crown chakra. In this place one comes into contact with the Divine. It is depicted as a lotus with 144,000 leaves. When these lotus leaves are fully opened, man is realized and he/she becomes one with the Divine. Then man can say:

“Not my will but your will be done”. Like the last words that Jesus spoke before the crucifixion. By this sin, read breakage, was restored and the way was opened for all who came after Him. And with this full realization, He severed the ties with death and the way was opened to liberation.

After his death on the cross, Jesus spent three days in the world of death and established the Light there. By His sacrifice the way was cleared for every soul who walked, goes and will go the narrow path.

After His redemption, He promises the Comforter, ie the Holy Spirit, to assist all souls who will walk the way of salvation. The Holy Spirit enlightens and guides the soul in the transfiguration.

So it is the tree of knowledge with the fruits that is carried to Calvary, but Gethsemene comes first.

There is the affliction and the betrayal. Gethsemene is written in Hebrew as Gath-Shemen. Gath means press and shemen means oil.

There are olive trees in Gethsemene. The olive fruit is pressed and the oil that is released is the anointing oil. Anointing stands for healing; that which is broken.

Centuries-old tree in Gestsemané
Centuries-old tree in Gestsemané

Cloaked in the veils of ignorance; Maya, every soul begins an obligatory pilgrimage journey that takes him/her into the deep earthly life. Through all the experiences such as joys and sorrows and many metamorphoses the light of Wisdom (the first born Proverbs 8) comes out in him/her.

The veils become finer and more transparent. Until the last veil breaks. Like the veil of the sanctuary in the temple. As a diamond polisher cuts facet after facet to make the light of the crystal shine, so is the way of transfiguration.


Messiah is a corruption of the Hebrew word Mashiach which means the anointed one.

When the Messianic comes forth, the Atonement sets in. Wolf and lamb can live together in harmony.

Judas is an aspect in man who wants to surrender the Son for the gain in this world. He betrays and sells himself. But this gain does not bring life. It is sown in the dead field where nothing grows. (Matt.27:8)
