Internality of words.
The bible speaks only about the true man who is the soul and uses this world to describe spiritual events and actions which have nothing to do with the physical world. The spiritual world is the root or cause of everything that occurs in the physical world. From the spiritual world (ROOT) which is a world of forces that are the cause of everything gradually descend in a sequence of cause and effect until events and states are felt and experienced in this world. Since the soul is a part of the Creator and is eternal, then words such as, sleeping, death, abyss, void, hell, describe varying degrees of disparity to the Creators Light and therefore concealment of the Creator. Therefore the vessel is void of Light, and the separation from the Creator due to disparity of form is truly felt as HELL.
Again such key words as healed the blind, refers to the revelation of the Creator to the person as the vessel attains a proper intention and similarity of form allows gradual increasing amounts of Light to enter. This brings life back into the desire to be filled with the Creators Light, and the once dead desire for spiritual Life is resurrected, or brought back to life. Healing of demons applies to the egos monopoly on a vessel devoid of Light. Selfish desires and thought as well as the most dark intentions have free reign while the Light is not within the vessel. As stated in scripture that the kingdom of God is within you. It is for this reason that the eternal fires of hell is synonymous with complete concealment of the Creator and the suffering that occurs when left to our on impure desires.
This in no way negates the fact that historical events and characters have occurred in the physical world, however to miss the internality of the stories, events and people in it is to see only half of the wealth that it is offering.
“Truth has nothing to do with words. Truth can be likened to the bright moon in the sky. Words, in this case, can be likened to a finger. The finger can point to the moon’s location. However, the finger is not the moon. To look at the moon, it is necessary to gaze beyond the finger, right?” (Buddhism)
