|The eye of providence.|
Batin () is the core of every religion. In Islam, it is the concealed or secret meaning of the Quran. The term Al-batin is an islamic name of God, which means "concealed" or "unmanifest."
Every religion has an esoteric and an exoteric meaning. In Islam, the esoteric meaning of the Quran is the batin and the exoteric meaning is Zahir.
The exoteric interpretation of Islam or any other religion is the external or apparent way of worship. It includes adherence to religious rules. Religious requirements such as fasting, praying, washing of hands and feet, going on pilgrimage to Mecca and abstaining from eating certain foods like pork are exoteric or external way of worship.
Eating bread or drinking wine during communion service, singing and dancing and visiting prayer grounds are some example of exoteric way of worship in Christianity.
Every human has three eyes:
- First eye (left eye)
- Second eye (right eye)
- Third eye
The three eyes are divided into two groups: the physical and the spiritual. Exoteric worship is based on the physical. The left and right eyes constitute the physical. Physical worship is based on building physical places of worship like Mosques, Churches, Synagogues or temples. Physical objects like the crescent and the cross are associated with this kind of worship.
Physical worship is equal to zero in which the left and the right eyes are the two halves of the split side of a cowrie, the two halves of a broken line or the two lines in a double line.
The third eye is the spiritual located on the fore-head, at the mid-point between the left and right eyes. Spiritual worship has no physical place of worship. It has no Temple, Church, Synagogue or Mosque. It is called spiritual because it is intangible. The spiritual is the holy city where there is no physical Temple.
The spiritual is called batin because it was hidden for a while. It was the hidden city.
Whatever is hidden away will be brought out into the open, and whatever is covered up will be found and brought to light. (Luke 8:17) "GNT"
Explaining the meaning of batin is revealing the holy city. The city has no physical location on earth. The only way to reveal what is invisible is to publish it in cyberspace. Humans will not be tempted to worship or bow before a website or an ebook.
There is no hard copy or paper back of this information because humans will be tempted to call it sacred and worship and fight over it like they do with the Quran and the Bible.
The three eyes are the three sides of the triangle: the sacred Tetractys.
The physical eyes are the base angles of an isosceles right triangle. The spiritual eye is the right angle.
Babylon is a world contrary to the holy city. It has all the signs and symbols of the holy city but contradicts the true meaning of the new Jerusalem. In fact, it is a fake and deceptive interpretation of batin.
The eye of providence is the spiritual eye. An eye enclosed by a triangle representing chaos is the mark of the beast placed on the fore heads of the Babylonians. The beast is the great divider (the king of Babylon) leading the revolt against unity and harmony. The revolt is the final rebellion.
Harmony is represented by two hands joined at the thumbs. Separating the two hands into right and left hands is chaos. In harmony, there is only one hand - one hand is the mirror image of the other hand. In chaos, there are two separate hands and the right hand rules.
In chaos, the right hand is the good hand and the left hand is the bad hand. The people who regard themselves as good and others bad are the ones having the mark of the beast on their right hands. Example: Christians who regard Hindus as pagans or Muslims as evil have the mark of the beast on their right hands.
Exoteric worship was the reason the Jews didn't want anything to do with the Gentiles. It was the reason Muslims considered people of other religions infidels. It was the reason Christians regard Muslims as sinners destined for hell.
The law or judgement reigning over the Islamic world was the product of exoteric interpretation of the Quran, which requires Muslims to obey specific religious rules.
Spiritual or esoteric worship is Non-judgment.
The world was unstable and chaotic in spite of religion because God doesn't dwell in external places of worship. God is Al-batin indwelling every human being. Allah is the Hidden One because humans prefer to search outside for him who is in us.
To say that God is unknowable is to accept that humans are totally ignorant of him. Baton is the term describing the state of man's ignorance of God.
Ta'wil is the esoteric interpretation of the Quran. It is the explanation and revealing of the inner light in every human being. Although all religions are different externally, batin is the same in every religions. Ta'wil enables people in different regions to see the unifying core common to all religions. The inner light that is at the core of every religion, every human being and everything is Christ.
Christ is not Christianity or religion. Rather, he is the light at the core of every religion, person or thing.
