Reclaiming Zion...

So if I were to ask you; 'What does the word Zion mean to you?' what would you answer? Would you say that it in somehow was reflective of occupation and oppresion rather than cohabitation? Maybe you may recall the 'Protocols of the Elders of Zion' and proceed to speak to me of a global conspiracy? Would you shout; 'ZOG!' filled with hatred? Maybe the only thing that would come to mind is a trilogy of films called 'The Matrix', where Zion was an underground haven. The truth is this word means many things to many people.
In the Book of Isaiah, there is talk of a 'cornerstone' laid in Zion; 'Behold, I am laying in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tested stone, a precious cornerstone, of a sure foundation.' 'Great!!' I hear you say, more biblical gobbledygook. Well maybe, but this cornerstone is the cornerstone of the most important construction we can hope to build, where we ourselves are the stones, each marked with the reconciling pentagram, each being as Jeheshuah. It is not an edifice made of rock, brick or mortar. It is a temple where each stone may physically travel, meet and reconvene the temple, with people that may not even realise they are stones. This temple doesn't have a dogma, has no wealth or gold, no priests, it is invisible. It was precisely for that reason that when the historical Jesus spoke of rebuilding the temple in three days he was mocked, the thing is religious people on the whole just don't get this shit, they didn't then, they don't now, and God only knows if they ever will!!!!
Anyone who has bothered to read any of my ranting, and for whom it has made sense, we then my friend are kindred. We were given two commandments by the historical Jesus, worship God alone (whatever the word 'God' means to you, if you don't like the word use another, or use no word at all), and love your neighbour as yourself. We are told if we keep to these two principles, we will not go far wrong, and in my experience this is not a lie. Welcome to the underground!!!
Oh and before I forget; '...follow the white rabbit!'
