The Divine Christ taught
“…he that is without sin cast the first stone…”
John 8:7 Holy Bible, New Testament
“Don’t think you can say to yourselves,
“We have father Abraham!
Because I tell you that God can raise up descendants
for Abraham from these stones!”

“Only an empty bowl can be filled” Zen Buddhism
Spirituality messages about the bowls (vessels), are numerous. The group of wisdom teachings about vessels of various kinds, such a bowls, vases, boats, boxes, etc., may refer to the individuality, as our body is a spiritual vessel, the temple, and there are other spiritual vessels in use to help Earthlings. The stones are also a larger unifying group of teachings. There are many wisdom stories and messages about the spiritual vessels and stones. Ancient helpful teachings may have bridges built between them, by the angels, with other stones found at the waterside. (Essene Gospel of Peace Book Two, p.32, trans. Szekely, E.B.)One teaching suggested that the bridges be built not too big, so that the Giants would not cross over them … !
The Shamen are the spiritual healers, and wise men, they are unique and important. Now is the blessing time, for the given teachings are beginning to be received more completely; those of the Shamen, and those of the Christ’s re-found vegetarian, and spirituality teachings. It is a time of prophecy being lived, and fulfilled. Christ will most certainly fulfill and assist in Shamanic healing. Having spiritual healing in the Hallowed Name and acceptable to the Christ is ideal, with the living way of life respect (vegan) in practice healing is most excellent. Harmless as doves!
An elder’s stone story is told in the book “Touching Spirit Bear” by Ben Mikaelsen. It conveys the message ‘that the stones that one carries uphill are the ancestors, that they get heavy, and one cannot progress with them, and the stones have to be thrown back down the hill.’ This is a nice book about mediation, spirit justice and better ways for corrections in an indigenous tribal tradition.
There is a story about the bowl and the stones, told by the now passed on Kahuna Elder Makua, to Healers Wesselman and Kuykendall , that they pass on in their interesting book “Spirit Medicine, Healing in the Sacred Realms”.
‘’On the last day of 1996 …Makua suddenly and unexpectedly gave us a gift –a simple Hawaiian bowl fashioned of kamani wood. “This is your bowl of light, “he intoned with dignity. “This light is the essence that you brought into this life, a gift from your aumakua, which divided itself.” He looked thoughtful as he turned the bowl this way and that. “As we pass through life, things happen. Sometimes we take things that don’t belong to us; some-times we injure others through our words, our thoughts, or our actions; sometimes we achieve success at the expense of the failure of others. Whenever such things happen, we step into the negative polarity, and some of our light goes out.”
He smiled wistfully as he finished his thought: “Each time we do this, it is like we put a stone into our bowl.” He paused for a long time. “Eventually our bowl fills up with stones, and no light is forthcoming anymore.”
“The kahuna elder turned to us in the twilight and said, “Hopefully, we come to realize what we are doing before it fills completely. Do you know what you do then?” He abruptly burst into laughter, his full gray beard and long white hair quivering with mirth around his dark face. He flipped the bowl over deftly and shook it. “You dump it out!” More laughter, shared by us all. Then his gaze turned serious once again. When we come to realize what we have been doing, we begin to live our lives differently. And it is then, precisely then, that we start to walk our path as spiritual warriors.”

The bowls are vessels in or with the temple; the body temple is a spiritual vessel, also. There are many teachings about the temple and the vessel, as well as possible shapes of bowls and vessels.
One impression about stones and bricks is that they are as vessels for seed, in a spiritual state, and put into that state for protection, to be of use in the perfect way—safe from procreation and free of the carnivores’ ways. They are the good seed, even such as the Seth seed, or un-begotten Son in the darkness of the temple, and that these higher seed have continual blessings to be eventually garmented in the begotten, and return in purity to heaven. Spiritual bricks and seed are used in various building structures, such as walls and pyramids. We are told that the less desirable path is with bricks and thorn. I received a message in vision where I saw a glass house nearby, that “they did not eat any seed.”
Another wisdom teachings found in various cultures is about a woman that had a vessel, with a crack in it, that was carrying seed, and that the seed fell out before she got home. The seed are highly sought, representing purity and faith. Seed, and coins are closely related.
II Timothy 2: 20-21. 20 Now in a large house there are not only gold and silver vessels, but also vessels of wood and of earthenware, and some to honor and some to dishonor. 21 Therefore, if anyone cleanses himself from these things, he will be a vessel for honor, sanctified, useful to the Master, prepared for every good work. From The New American Standard Bible, New Testament.
Stones may be a uses to cross a river, build a bridge or garment it and send it to Abraham.
Stones, and vessels are an interesting area of discipleship and spirituality, for understanding body temple preparation and spiritual healing, with the Holy Spirit. Be careful about casting stones.
First stones, firestones, twelve stones, living stones
Living and being the light of this world ,
bright lights shining
“Love all as the sun does shine on good and evil alike, and love a thousand times more those that do the Heavenly Father’s good will” Christ Jesus (found in Essene Gospels of Peace).
Shining the lights in the darkness,
loving what is found
being bright pathways to the abodes of the family divine
stones becoming bridges, stones becoming
children going to heaven
lovely stones living life
in a most lovely way in the spiritual creation.
