Where are Jesus’ private teachings?

A recent visitor to GnosticChristianity.com submitted this question: So where are Jesus’ private teachings? Outside of what was left in the bible, that is. How are you getting your information to be able to make these claims?

In reply, here are the thoughts of John Miller, Ph.D., whose contributions to GnosticChristiany.com are many and great. This information is published here with Dr. Miller’s permission, and all rights are hereby reserved.

I have been asked to respond to your query concerning Jesus’ gnostic teachings.  Obviously, if they were secret, they are not written down for public viewing.  In the thirteenth chapter of the Gospel of Matthew, we read (Jesus is speaking to his disciples here): Unto you is given to knew the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given.  Therefore speak I to them in parables, because they seeing, see not; and hearing, they hear not, neither do they understand.”  Similar passages are found in the Gospels of Mark and Luke. 

Spiritual Logic by William C. Kiefert

Originally written on March 27, 2001.

Excerpted from “Spiritual Logic” by William C. Kiefert: Spiritual logic is the missing link between mind and spirit. I propose that an assumed principle, and the laws of logic it justifies, is the cause behind the judgmental character of civilized man’s “method” of reasoning. It is this principle that pits mind against spirit.

Summary
The power of prayer, meditation, spiritual knowledge, science and our own experiences demonstrate that our thoughts have, within them, the power to create our everyday reality. Prayers, meditation, hypnotism, and the paranormal introduce us to our latent creative powers. Spiritual logic is the key to unlock those potentials so that everyone might use them on an everyday basis.

Meaning of life

From ONE THE MOVIE on YouTube:

ONE The Movie is compared to The Secret as holding a key to life’s meaning. ONE reaches the soul with the magic of The Secret. This video featues a commentary on the Meaning of Life by people featured in the full movie. www.onetheproject.com

ONE takes the viewer on a remarkable journey toward self-reflection and greater consciousness. It powerfully provides a clear direction to today’s mantra for change.
