Metaphysical meaning of feeding the five thousand (mbd)
feeding the five thousand.
Meta. In the universal mind principle there is a substance that Jesus called the "Father," which is also the mother or seed of all visible substance. It is the only real substance because it is unchangeable, while visible substance is in constant transition.
The origin of all substance is the idea of substance. This substance idea is purely spiritual and can be apprehended only by the mind. It is never visible to the eye, nor can it be sensed by man through any of his bodily functions. When the attention has been centered upon this idea of substance long enough, and strongly enough, a consciousness of substance is generated and, by the powers of the various faculties of the mind in right relation, visible substance is formed. In this way Jesus brought into visibility the loaves and fishes to feed the five thousand.
