Kingdom of Heaven
John asked Jesus, "Master, what is the kingdom of heaven?" And Jesus answered: "The kingdom of heaven consists in these three essentials: first, recognition of the fact of the sovereignty of God; second, belief in the truth of sonship with God; and third, faith in the effectiveness of the supreme human desire to do the will of God--to be like God. And this is the good news of the gospel: that by faith every mortal may have all these essentials of salvation."
Welcome to the Gadian Website, here you will be able to discover the ancient history of many countries, peoples and places.
In the 15 years of research, I tried to find amongs such a diverse peoples, a common thread of belief. This i found in a few simple statements as follows:
Man builds his own society from who He is
The world is a mirror of this: it is an image of his own creation.
Our emotions create our environment.
Good Governance is based on Man knowing his own true nature (as creator, he makes his own reality.
Laws are based on all the good and evil that will come from the in this world and the next, based on the eternal existence of Man.
The test of these laws will be if society can maintain a common good?
Heaven is within, there is no place to go to at death, you are the heaven you are living and waiting for when you die now, you still continue to live it when you leave this body, if you do not make it a glorified body first.
There are no changes at death, what ever you are in this age, you will be in the next age, because you are an ageless, timeless being, you will always be you with a body as you go from greater and greater individualism. (god).
You cannot be anything more or less than you know yourself now to be.
It is necessary for those who do not know now have they experienced the awakening to the truth of who they are and how they actually affect/effect their own existence.
The preface or introduction to a persons life begins in ancient Egypt where it is first mentioned of the word "Humman": Hu=God, Man=Image of God, the visible being of their own true nature as they believe themselves to be. Certain things are chosen before birth, the rest is made of who you are as your grow and mature through life, till Hu & Man become one glorified being. The I Am.
Mankind had absolutely no beginning in time and will have no end, he has always existed and always will.
Man in the beginning didn't eat meat, but the fruits of the field and forrest.
Now you know who you are!
As a Man thinketh so is He
Mind & Speech
Coin of Heaven
The Salvation of God
Wisdom & Power of God
The First Act
The Image of God
Thinking in terms of Words
Inner Dialog (conversation)
We are already that which we want to be!
The Creator, I am, The Lord, are the same as Mind, Immagination and Dreaming.
Choose eternal life, even one moment of insight, one spark of light, one refusal to sin, will prepare you for eternal life. God's promise to Man.
What name would you call a person who did not fit into the history of major religions, who are neither Athiest nor Christian, neither Pagan nor Islamic, neither Jew nor Buddhist, but who has an understanding of the things of Man, and that of Heaven.
Who believes in a future that adds value to the laws of life.
We are called "Gádian's"
Any form of fiction that tries to help people find ultimate meaning for their lives, then it is - by definition - religious.
Plato wrote about the Soul: "It's the Soul, my good friend, that nearly everybody seems to have misunderstood, not realizing its nature and power. Quite apart from the other points about it, people are particularly ignorant about its birth. It is one of the first creations, born long before all physical things, and is the chief cause of all their alterations and transformations. Now if that's true, anything closely related to Soul will necessarily have been created before material things, won't it, since Soul itself is older than matter?
The soul is self-generating motion, surely, because no antecedent impulse can ever be transmitted from something else in a situation where no antecedent impulse exists. Self-generating motion, then, is the source of all motions, and the primary force in both stationary and moving objects, and we shan't be able to avoid the conclusion that this it is the most ancient and most potent of all changes, whereas the change which is produced by something else and in turn transmitted to other objects, comes second.
So surely, whether we provide the name and ask the definition or give the definition and ask for the name - we're referring to the same object? So it is equally correct, final and complete statement of truth, when we said that Soul is prior to matter, and that matter came later and takes second place. Soul is the master, and matter its natural subject. So habits, customs, will, calculation, right opinion, dilligence and memory will be prior creations to material length, breadth, depth and strength, if (as is true) soul is prior to nature.
Gad and Asher (Tafel) n. 1
Gad and Asher*
Angels also are distinguished into heavens, according to the variety of intellectual faith, thus which govern the interior human thoughts, for man has within himself a certain interior heaven; also a more interior one, and an inmost.
By the Divine mercy of God Messiah, it was permitted several times, to communicate thoughts to the life, with those who are in that intellectual heaven, or by thoughts to have communication with them, and by other means to speak with them. Yea, it was given to purify my thoughts to that degree, that they came immediately into contact with those who were in the heaven of intellectual faith. Then it was observed that they were those, who in the more interior sense, are meant by Gad; for although they know, and thus are able to believe that God Messiah, by the Holy Spirit, alone governs them, and that they have power only when immediately excited, still when they were removed, they at first willed to excite some disturbances, but after some contention with me they acquiesced.
Moreover also today, by the Divine Mercy of God Messiah, it was permitted to have lively experience, that spirits, although evil, namely, who are in perverted order, are nevertheless capable of giving delights to anyone; whilst they are in that exterior state, these are meant by Asher; for they were in the state of making themselves pleasant to their company, in preferring complaisance to the interior heaven, or to the interior man. These are things which are arcana, and concerning which many things might be said-1747, 8th day of February -on which day it was permitted to annotate in the margin,** something concerning the blessings of the sons of Jacob (Gen. Chap. 49).
* In a copy of the original edition of Heaven and Hell, Latin, found in the library of the Bath (England) Society, is a sheet of paper containing a fragment of manuscript in Swedenborg's handwriting. Hyde in his Bibliography of Swedenborg's Works, n. 498, concludes that this fragment is a portion of the lost part of the Spiritual Diary [now called Spiritual Experiences] of Swedenborg; belonging probably about n. 28 and 29. The fragment has been phototyped and published, together with an English translation, by Wm. Harbutt, A. R. C. A. The Grange, Bathampton, Bath. The translation is said to have been made by Dr. R. L. Tafel, but it is not in his handwriting. We have made some emendations after comparison with the phototype copy.-Translator.

This true story, it starts a long time ago, long before 10,000 BC with the ten kings of Atlantis, Plato tells us in Critias that the island of Atlantis was divided into ten portions, ruled over by ten sons of the founder, one "Poseidon." One of the sons was "Gadeirus". Atlantis was going through some major changes in how the people would be represented, Atlantis was moving towards a democracy controlled by a senate or council. This was the natural evolution of many societies today, even from Roman times we see the civil wars between the emperor and the republic (senate). Australia went through this change in 1986 with the Australia Act, from a British colony to an independent Commonwealth country. America went through its war of independence. The other kings of Atlantis knew this was going to happen and prepared for war against the rebels.
Many of the kings tried through peaceful means to make these changes, and this is where the story begins.
Atlantis is a legend that was preserved by the Egyptians and Greeks from 9570.BC, according to the Atlantian Script of Solon, a Greek Statesman, who received this knowledge of Atlantis, upon his visit to Sais, Egypt and the Libyan Pharaoh, Amasis II, ca 570.BC, and Wedjahor-Resne, the Egyptian Priest, Physician and Naval Admiral. Unknown to the Greeks, it was forgotten and retained from Egypt as Plato's, Timaeus tells us, written in 360.BC. Chalcidius, a Latin Scribe, would preserve Plato's work from his original notebook.
The Greeks were fascinated by the notion of a mythical and fabulously wealthy kingdom in the far west beyond the Pillars of Hercules. It was a rich emporium of valuable and precious metals and the luxurious lives led by its inhabitants linked it in their minds to the legends of Atlantis and Hesperides, the Isles of the Blessed, which were located in the same direction and were maybe even in the same place. They called it Tartessos.
The story begins with "Gadeirus being asked to solve a long running issue between the "Sons of Light" and the "Sons of Belial", He was known for his wisdom, insight and judgement, having ruled his land peaceful for more than 50 years.
The "Sons of Light" (love and compassion) were the people who respected the land, living in harmony with it; they were very advanced technologically, having vast networks of schools and societies. The "Sons of Belial" (hard of heart) were the people who saw the land as servants to them, they reaped it clean by stripping it of trees and burning it for replanting of profitable crops, and when the soil would yield any more they abandoned it leaving it a waste land and moved on to new areas, often trying very hard to encroach on the land of the Sons of Light, placing ever increasing demands on them to give it up, they were very competitive in nature often killing each other for power and financial gain. This story has waged its fight for the control of society for as long as man will believe it is necessary, but it will end when man begins to know thyself.
The issue that Gadeirus was asked to solve was one of, "Who had the right to set the laws governing social conduct concerning the acceptable methods of war", "like their ancestors, they were to deliberate in common about war and other matters, this would if war was decided give the supremacy to the descendants of Atlas. And no king was to have the power of life and death over any of his kinsmen unless he had the assent of the majority of the ten. "This was a trick to see who could own the wealth of the land and who was responsible to produce it, for He knew in war there were those captured and taken as slaves, their wealth, family and lands surrendered, they were forced to work that land for the victorious social class. If He agreed to war, then he could condemn the people to slavery, and if he disagreed with war He would cause the revolt of the people.
Gadeirus called all the ten kings together, and asked them what was happening within their kingdom, after the kings he asked the people in a court of public enquiry, all people what ever class or status.
The enquiry found the need for an independent law, the fact or irony of setting up of the enquiry by Gadeirus was to be the foundation for the new form of government.
He set up a an independent organisation to train people in keeping the peace in the land (today you could call them law enforcement officers, not police, but a role similar to a commonwealth officer or federal sheriff), they are the people who follow the primal law, or governing principles of society, the same law that applies equally right down to the pauper that can remove a president or prime minister or provide the opportunity for anyone to reach their highest goal. They lived outside of the confines of the society as they were apolitical, and over time they developed their own societies, language and culture.
He chose the best from both groups to form this organisation; it had the sanction of the other kings for they knew it would not be long before this problem was encountered by them. Those who were chosen were not to belong to any laws or groups outside that of the constitutional and democratically socially accepted code of conduct, more of this will be explained later.
These people were chosen for their skills, strengths, knowledge and intuition. They were able to think, feel, act and know why they were doing things.
Gadeirus with the other Kings, asked these people to formulate a code of law that would benefit the lives of their people. This law became known as the Gádians Law, meaning both a person and their way of life. Gadeirus knew this law from his youth, being handed down to him as well as all others, from the Great School (Temple of Light...)
You can still see examples of these laws from Gadeirus’s time in the public service of democratic nations; this is often portrayed in a satirical way by TV series like Yes Minister, a British comedy about their public service.
The first question I get asked when I speak about the book is "How do you know it is true?” The answer to this is simple "You are living them, now".
For any society, the benefits of being part of a cohesive group should outweigh the benefits of individualism. For example, lack of group cohesion could make individuals more vulnerable to attack from outsiders. A cohesive society allows each person to develop to their full potential because they can see in others their attitudes.
The attachment and bonding, cooperation and mutual aid, sympathy and empathy, conflict resolution and peacemaking, community concern and caring about what others think about you, and awareness of and response to the social rules of the group, this is called the social conscience of a society.
The recognition of a developed social structure has several traits; these traits include high intelligence, high health, a capacity for symbolic communication, a sense of social norms, and realization of "self" and a concept of continuity.
This book is a brief introduction to the event and circumstances that made it possible for many generations over a period of ten thousand years or more, to live their dreams as they truly want them to be.
This is the story of the Gádians.
Our Mission is to bring about the Immortality and Eternal Life of Man, in fulfilling our mission we will bring to "You" this Ancient Knowledge. This knowledge enabled your "Ancestors" to live a peaceful and prosperous life in full recognition of their own divinity. It will enable your life to be Full, Healthy and Divine.
Doing the Will of Our Father: is to foster, protect, and perfect the people without compelling them. To guide and directs but without self-assertion. To ministers progression, but without domination.
To encourage each person to find their own place in heaven.
A new way of finding God; A new revelation of the Father in heaven.
A lot of people have asked me, "why do all this", my only anwer to them is this "When you can know the strength and charcter of your soul, you will become what you are currently being
taught or guided by, good or bad, it is you".
This is the "Third" attempt at defining Man's relationship with their Eternal Father, the "First" attempt was with Adam, the "Second" attempt was with Jesus, both failed to bring changes to the way man (people) thought of their relationship with God.
Becoming a member of the Gadian Society will give you the opportunity to associate with others who have come to an understanding of their own divinity, through reaching a common awareness of their own inherent nature and divine purpose.
You will not be able to recognise those who have come to this understanding as we have no special clothing, public ceremonies or badge of recognition. It can only be felt by those who recognise their own divinity.
This knowledge has been passed on for generations to all people regardless of birth or status, as it by a persons character that you shall know them.
The information contained in this website may contain information contributed by people who have had special events occur in their lives, some have experienced personal enlightenment (Masters, Sages, Wisemen), near death experiences or conscious awakenings, as all have in common a true recognition of "Self" that encouraged them to start a personal journey along the pathway of life Mastership.
This knowledge is passed on freely to those who would initiate a life of self-unfoldment, so that noone may be deprived of the benefit to which they are entitled and which they must inevitably receive as a result of their Personal effort. It is necessary for each person to solve lifes problem and formulate lifes answer for themselves, in developing an entire philosophy to life. It may be considered, analyzed and elucidated to suit their own personal awareness.
This "Life" is to be our great work of individual development, individual unfoldment, individual attainment. It cannot be delegated. The individual who is to receive the benefits must do the work. There shall be no individual development save that which results from individual effort. They cannot furnish a "substitute".
This information is freely available to all; you may know its truth; all it takes is the faith to believe that your Father in Heaven answers you, the same as I answer my Children when spoken to, as all Parents do! The Father in Heaven will do no less than this, this is His promise to all those who speak to Him. Like when my children ask me, sometimes I think before I answer, or tell them to wait for a moment, but I always answer them.
