The Answer to MU - Not a Thing is Nothing at All


If you are unfamiliar with the first Koan, please read about the Gateless Gate here:
Joshu's Dog


From the Yes / No Version

When asked by one student (with no realized nature), the teacher says none. When asked by a student who has realized his nature, the teacher responds yes. In other words, the students asking are the answer. One student had to ask the question, followed by the teacher giving him the answer to the student's own nature. The student wishing to clarify already knew that all have Buddha nature. Each student represents the dog. Buddha nature is not something you can possess. Just this All in All what you are. Becoming denotes realization of this as All in All. Being denotes that you realize your identity, nature and unity as one. For instance, being angry and full of ill will denotes disunity, not Absolute Buddha nature. This makes a changing state of impermanence, which is not being. Unity (one hand clapping) denotes unity of two hands coming together as one. Play two trumpets in tune and you hear one trumpet. Unity of all things as one. All Koans are this answer when identity, nature and unity make one from all the 10,000 things. Your first face before creation is this.

No Only Version

In another answer to MU, the word means does not exist (no such thing as a dog without Buddha Nature). In other words, "Has a dog Buddha nature?" Buddha nature is not a named thing like a dog, therefore a dog is not named by Buddha nature as an individuality. On the other hand, Buddha nature is the Dog. Its predication is Buddha nature one with all in all. Buddha nature is not a dog possessing the nature of a dog alone. A Dog is Buddha nature as a thing. Has a dog Buddha nature? The question is incorrect of course. A dog that is not Buddha nature would be no thing (nothing). MU. Things which are predicated are all the 10,000 things named.

What then is the one unnamed and unmanifest no thing (nothing)? What is the nature of nothing? What cultivates our nature leading to realization of identity and unity with the Buddha, Dharma and Sangha? Identity, nature and unity are all one thing. Buddha nature. Has a Dog Buddha nature? It all depends on how you see nothing. What is being empty of things? No thing at all. This. Buddha (Identity), Dharma (Nature), Sangha (Unity of all Things as One Identity).

Another answer to MU: Same same, only different.

My Answer on Reddit

I recently answered a funny question on Reddit: "Does a chimp have Buddha Nature?"

Answer:

MU is nothing, or no such thing. No Thing at all. Since all is Buddha Nature, something without (outside of it) is not possible save nothing, which is no thing at all. Go back to the first Koan in the Bluecliff. Emptiness, without holiness. Without (outside of) holiness is emptiness. What, then, is inside holiness?

Go to the Tao 1. What is unmanifest and unnamed? Emptiness. What is the mother of 10,000 things? Holiness. The work done in creation is the relative aspect of the Sangha (Assembly). The basis for this work is the value (Tao 11). All in All. Emptiness is the potential of the whole, which is and must be imperminance to become. Being is unchanging, which is also necessary for Absolute to be with its assembly as an anchor. In Physics, this is invariant symmetry as the anchor for translational symmetry.

Three Buffalo

The buffalo’s head sprouts horns
As he emerges from the weeds (relatives),
In a dream, he tries to speak
Of the valley of the timeless spring.
Although he has bathed in the fragrant waters,
I hit, saying, “Not Good Enough!
How will you impart strength to others?”

MU - As the three ox states about holiness, once you find the truth, what value will your domesticated ox impart to others? Cultivation of the seed. Enlightenment is only half if absent the work of nature, which is our compassion for others. It's not just for you. But then again, it's all you. Both and none. Raise one to know three. Even a chimp can become a human, rise to heaven, then learn for realization as a Bodhisattva. What is it that a Bodhisattva finds keeping them in the work of their own holiness discovered? Both Nirvana and Samsara are the same if you arrive at who you are, your nature and your unity. Identity, Nature and Unity bring Nirvana to Samsara. One. There is only one thing in creation worth being. By removing all relative things (images of yourself), what is left?


Colossians 1
15 The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 16 For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. 17 He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.

But he asks, "How will you carry it out?" One realization answers all Koans. Who are you? What is your nature? Who are others in relation? All the same question.

Adam and Eve - Know Thyself

From Manly P Hall - Secret Teaching of All Ages (1928)
Herein is the key to the allegorical creation of Eve out of the side of Adam; for Adam, representative of the idea or pattern, is reflected into the material universe as a multitude of ensouled images which collectively are designated Eve. According to another theory, the division of the sexes took place in the archetypal sphere; hence the shadows in the lower world were divided into two classes consistent with the orders established in the Archetype. In the apparently incomprehensible attraction of one sex for the other Plato recognized a cosmic urge toward reunion of the severed halves of this archetypal Being. 
Exactly what is to be inferred by the division of the sexes as symbolically described in Genesis is a much-debated question. That man was primarily androgynous is quite universally conceded and it is a reasonable presumption that he will ultimately regain this bisexual state. As to the manner in which this will be accomplished two opinions are advanced. One school of thought affirms that the human soul was actually divided into two parts (male and female) and that man remains an unperfected creature until these parts are reunited through the emotion which man calls love. 
From this concept has grown the much-abused doctrine of "soul mates" who must quest through the ages until the complementary part of each severed soul is discovered. The modern concept of marriage is to a certain degree founded upon this ideal. According to the other school, the so-called division of the sexes resulted from suppression of one pole of the androgynous being in order that the vital energies manifesting through it might be diverted to development of the rational faculties. From this point of view man is still actually androgynous and spiritually complete, but in the material world the feminine part of man's nature and the masculine part of woman's nature are quiescent. 
Through spiritual unfoldment and knowledge imparted by the Mysteries, however, the latent element in each nature is gradually brought into activity and ultimately the human being thus regains sexual equilibrium. By this theory woman is elevated from the position of being man's errant part to one of complete equality. 
From this point of view, marriage is regarded as a companionship in which two complete individualities manifesting opposite polarities are brought into association that each may thereby awaken the qualities latent in the other and thus assist in the attainment of individual completeness. The first theory may be said to regard marriage as an end; the second as a means to an end. The deeper schools of philosophy have leaned toward the latter as more adequately acknowledging the infinite potentialities of divine completeness in both aspects of creation. 
The Christian Church is fundamentally opposed to the theory of marriage, claiming that the highest degree of spirituality is achievable only by those preserving the virginal state. This concept seemingly originated among certain sects of the early Gnostic Christians, who taught that to propagate the human species was to increase and perpetuate the power of the Demiurgus; for the lower world was looked upon as an evil fabrication created to ensnare the souls of all born into it--hence it was a crime to assist in bringing souls to earth.

When, therefore, the unfortunate father or mother shall stand before the Final Tribunal, all their offspring will also appear and accuse them of being the cause of those miseries attendant upon physical existence. This view is strengthened by the allegory of Adam and Eve, whose sin through which humanity has been brought low is universally admitted to have been concerned with the mystery of generation. Mankind, owing to Father Adam its physical existence, regards its progenitor as the primary cause of its misery; and in the judgment Day, rising up as a mighty progeny, will accuse its common paternal ancestor. 
Those Gnostic sects maintaining a more rational attitude on the subject declared the very existence of the lower worlds to signify that the Supreme Creator had a definite purpose in their creation; to doubt his judgment was, therefore, a grievous error. The church, however, seemingly arrogated to itself the astonishing prerogative of correcting God in this respect, for wherever possible it continued to impose celibacy, a practice resulting in an alarming number of neurotics. In the Mysteries, celibacy is reserved for those who have reached a certain degree of spiritual unfoldment. When advocated for the mass of unenlightened humanity, however, it becomes a dangerous heresy, fatal alike to both religion and philosophy. As Christendom in its fanaticism has blamed every individual Jew for the crucifixion of Jesus, so with equal consistency it has maligned every member of the feminine sex. In vindication of Eve philosophy claims that the allegory signifies merely that man is tempted by his emotions to depart from the sure path of reason. 
Many of the early Church Fathers sought to establish a direct relationship between Adam and Christ, thereby obviously discounting the extremely sinful nature of man's common ancestor, since it is quite certain that when St. Augustine likens Adam to Christ and Eve to the church he does not intend to brand the latter institution as the direct cause of the fall of man. For some inexplicable reason, however, religion has ever regarded intellectualism--in fact every form of knowledge--as fatal to man's spiritual growth. The Ignaratitine Friars are an outstanding example of this attitude. 
In this ritualistic drama--possibly derived from the Egyptians--Adam, banished from the Garden of Eden, represents man philosophically exiled from the sphere of Truth. Through ignorance man falls; through wisdom he redeems himself. The Garden of Eden represents the House of the Mysteries (see The Vision of Enoch) in the midst of which grew both the Tree of Life and the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. 
Man, the banished Adam, seeks to pass from the outer court of the Sanctuary (the exterior universe) into the sanctum sanctorum, but before him rises a vast creature armed with a flashing sword that, moving slowly but continually, sweeps clear a wide circle, and through this "Ring Pass Not" the Adamic man cannot break. 
The cherubim address the seeker thus: "Man, thou art dust and to dust thou shalt return. Thou wert fashioned by the Builder of Forms; thou belongest to the sphere of form, and the breath that was breathed into thy soul was the breath of form and like a flame it shall flicker out. More than thou art thou canst not be. Thou art a denizen of the outer world and it is forbidden thee to enter this inner place." 
And the Adam replies: "Many times have I stood within this courtyard and begged admission to my Father's house and thou hast refused it me and sent me back to wander in darkness. True it is that I was fashioned out of the dirt and that my Maker could not confer upon me the boon of immortality. But no more shalt thou send me away; for, wandering in the darkness, I have discovered that the Almighty hath decreed my salvation because He hath sent out of the most hidden Mystery His Only Begotten who didst take upon Himself the world fashioned by the Demiurgus. Upon the elements of that world was He crucified and from Him hath poured forth the blood of my salvation. 
And God, entering into His creation, hath quickened it and established therein a road that leadeth to Himself. While my Maker could not give me immortality, immortality was inherent in the very dust of which I was composed, for before the world was fabricated and before the Demiurgus became the Regent of Nature the Eternal Life had impressed itself upon the face of Cosmos. This is its sign--the Cross. Do you now deny me entrance, I who have at last learned the mystery of myself?" 
And the voice replies: "He who is aware, IS! Behold!"
Gazing about him, Adam finds himself in a radiant place, in the midst of which stands a tree with flashing jewels for fruit and entwined about its trunk a flaming, winged serpent crowned with a diadem of stars. It was the voice of the serpent that had spoken. 
"Who art thou?" demands the Adam. 
"I," the serpent answers, "am Satan who was stoned; I am the Adversary--the Lord who is against you, the one who pleads for your destruction before the Eternal Tribunal. I was your enemy upon the day that you were formed; I have led you into temptation; I have delivered you into the hands of evil; I have maligned you; I have striven ever to achieve your undoing. I am the guardian of the Tree of Knowledge and I have sworn that none whom I can lead astray shall partake of its fruits." 
The Adam replies: "For uncounted ages have I been thy servant. In my ignorance I listened to thy words and they led me into paths of sorrow. Thou hast placed in my mind dreams of power, and when I struggled to realize those dreams they brought me naught but pain. Thou hast sowed in me the seeds of desire, and when I lusted after the things of the flesh agony was my only recompense. Thou hast sent me false prophets and false reasoning, and when I strove to grasp the magnitude of Truth I found thy laws were false and only dismay rewarded my strivings. 
I am done with thee forever, O artful Spirit! I have tired of thy world of illusions. No longer will I labor in thy vineyards of iniquity. Get thee behind me, tempter, and the host of thy temptations. There is no happiness, no peace, no good, no future in the doctrines of selfishness, hate, and passion preached by thee. All these things do I cast aside. Renounced is thy rule forever!"
And the serpent makes answer: "Behold, O Adam, the nature of thy Adversary!" The serpent disappears in a blinding sunburst of radiance and in its place stands an angel resplendent in shining, golden garments with great scarlet wings that spread from one corner of the heavens to the other. Dismayed and awestruck, the Adam falls before the divine creature. 
"I am the Lord who is against thee and thus accomplishes thy salvation, " continues the voice. "Thou hast hated me, but through the ages yet to be thou shalt bless me, for I have led thee our of the sphere of the Demiurgus; I have turned thee against the illusion of worldliness; I have weaned thee of desire; I have awakened in thy soul the immortality of which I myself partake. Follow me, O Adam, for I am the Way, the Life, and the Truth!"

Satan's Identity Revealed - Thorn-Basket-Seed (STN) - Thorns and Seed in one Basket


Basis for the Story

Before you read this, consider what the image of God is from the words of the Bible, "both male and female."  From this, consider that Adam is in this image of God when created in Genesis 1.  The image is then divided in Genesis 2 (bloodshed of the Lamb from the foundation) so that all of mankind comes through Eve, symbol for the Spirit of God (Feminine).  Ruach Elohim is the Spirit (Breath) of God in Genesis 1, set aside for the law of sin and death to occur.  Once Eve is refined from Eve to Mary, what is the power given to the Son of Man, allowing Mary to give birth to the last Adam (again walking with the Father)?  The Father's Holy Spirit is again given to Adam (see the turban in Zechariah 3), allowing sin and death to be set aside (by Love).  Once complete, the full knowledge of good and evil is understood from the events from Genesis to Revelation.  

In other words, what does Adam gain back as a man baptized into a body?  His image and holy spirit.  Both male and female.  In other words, Mary is Eve refined from Genesis to Revelation.  The restoration of the fallen one is this story of the Lord and his Father, which you may now just be seeing for the first time as your own story.  How does one gain wisdom from the Eastern view?  With a consort.  Creation with a consort allows wisdom from experience.  This is the Gnostic story of Sophia as a secondary reflection.  In Buddhism, all wisdom is the gained feminine consort.  Shakti is the Great Mother.  


Shakt(Sanskrit pronunciation: [ˈʃʌktɪ]) (Devanagari: शक्ति; from Sanskrit shak, "to be able"), meaning "Power" or "empowerment," is the primordial cosmic energy and represents the dynamic forces that are thought to move through the entire universe in Hinduism.

Without a Holy Spirit, the law of sin and death is the accuser of sin bringing death.  Once healed, mercy and grace add the Aleph back into the first family.  Death is overcome.  See my books for the Hebrew word Truth (Aleph Mem Tav) and the Hebrew word Death (Mem Tav).  The following is why this matters to the definition of Satan as the Lord's lower nature refined.  

How is Satan related to the Lord?
The root of the trouble lies in him (see Ezekiel 28 and Job 19)

In a previous article concerning the identity of the Son of God as the Lord of the Old Testament, we discovered that the Lord's old identity was that of the Father of Israel.  From this, we correctly inferred that the God of Love (Elohim) is the Father of Adam (Manu).  From this, we learned that the Father of Israel (LORD) was the scapegoat for his own shedding of human blood as revealed in Genesis 9:6 and Exodus 4:22.  John 8 then gives the rest of the story as told by the Lord himself, calling the Father of Israel (himself as the Old Testament Lord), the Devil.  Now that this hidden truth is seen clearly, the rest of the story will be told by three simple letters for the name of Satan in Hebrew--Sin-Tet-Nun (Satan in Hebrew).  

To see the connection between the devil and Christ, please read the previous article before beginning, remembering that Yahweh is ONE:  LINK




Remember one thing as you read:   Judgment is accusation.  Satan is the accuser.  Rather than judge the Lord, find the truth of the Lord in yourself.  How do you overcome the world?  By forgiving.  This is the only thorn in your side.  Once known, you cannot unknow.  Consider carefully what you are about to read concerning the accuser of Man.  


Purpose of God (TAV)


As you will come to find, Satan is the purpose of God's work in mankind to bring the fallen into the world to come.  As it turns out, your true essence has always been with God.  See my books for more on this topic of the Wandering Sheep of Matthew 18.  


Who is Satan?

Before I begin, realize again the first presupposition of the image of God as revealed by Paul in Colossians 1:15-17.  By this verse, we cannot judge the Lord apart from also judging ourselves as him.  There is no difference.  Do not judge the Lord, but instead see what it means to overcome your own lower nature by HIS example.  There is no difference between him on the cross and you hanging on the image of the cross (Body).  All means All. The risen Christ is the body of Christ (Church / Assembly).

The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.

If you scan the text above seeking the location of Satan, the only place all rulers, powers, thrones and authorities can be located is inside the Son of God himself.  Satan cannot be an entity outside of the Son.  

Who Made Satan?  What was Satan's Nature as Cunning (Arum)?

Genesis 3:1 - The snake was more clever (Arum) than all the wild animals Yahweh Elohim had made.
Wordplay Revealing Humans as Naked (Arummim)
Genesis 2:25 - The man and his wife were both naked (Arummim), but they weren’t ashamed of it.
See this Article on the Wordplay revealing Satan as Clothed with knowledge and Man as naked (devoid of knowledge).  Note that the conscience must be informed in order to accuse.  Wordplay marks the text as an important distinction worth noticing.  


He explains: "Do not be astonished that arum is used right after arummim, having two different meanings, for this is the way of eloquence (tzahut lashon)." 

Satan as the Conscience of the Son (Lord / Yahweh / Jehovah).  


Going back to my previous conclusions, the Son has an accuser (conscience).  The conscience is fully informed and able to accuse creation of its sin.  Sin is also the letter in Hebrew (Samech) representing the thorn.  

There are three letters needed to define the name of Satan in Hebrew.  Samech (sin), Tet (thet) and Nun.  Sin is the Thorn.  Tet is the Basket.  Nun is the Seed, or image of God in DNA (Aleph Bet and Word).  

SIN 

TET

NUN

Note that I am using the proto-Canaanite, which is Phoenician. For the clearest pictographs of early Hebrew, Phoenician reveals the true meaning of the letters at their root definition.  As an example, Aleph-Mem-Tav is the Hebrew word Emet, which is Truth.  It literally means, Strong Water Mark.  This is Baptism into the waters below as explained in my books.  The word Satan also has a distinct meaning, easily read with the meaning of the letters known.

STN - Sin and Seed in a Basket.  Note that both Sin and Nun are next to each other in the Hebrew Alphabet.  By using the PDF linked below, read the significance of each letter in order Samech-Tet-Nun.

Hebrew Letter Outline


SEE THIS PDF - LINK

Samech (SIN) - "The circular form of the samech symbolizes the fundamental truth reflected at all levels of Torah and reality: “their end is enwedged in their beginning and their beginning in their end.” This realization and awareness of inherent unity between beginning and end, which, when comprehended in depth, implies equanimity at all stages of “the endless cycle,” is in fact the manifestation of God’s Transcendent Light (sovev kol almin), which encompasses equally every point of reality. This ever-present Transcendent Light is referred to as “He is equal and equalizes small and large.” In our service of God, this implies that in relation to worldly phenomena, all things should be related to and accepted equally. This is the attribute of equanimity as taught by the Ba’al Shem Tov, in interpretation of the verse: “I place [shiviti, from the root shaveh, ‘equal’] God before me always.”
While at outer levels of consciousness one should remain unaffected by the transient events of this world, at deeper inner levels of consciousness, relating to Souls and Divinity, one should continuously be in a state of aspiration to achieve higher and higher levels of clinging to God and realizing His Will in Creation through Torah and mitzvot. 
IChassidut we are taught that the saying of the Sages: “Who is wealthy? He who is happy with his portion” pertains only to worldly possessions, whereas with regard to spiritual matters we should never be satisfied with our present acquisitions but ever strive to obtain more. Nonetheless, as our inner striving takes place within the general context of external equanimity, it also proceeds as a circle, a spiral, in dynamic, ever-ascending motion. Thus an inner, dynamic circle exists within an outer, static circle. This is the secret of the phrase in the vision of Ezekiel: “the wheel within the wheel.”
"As mentioned in our discussion of the letter nun, the samech, which means “to support,” is the Divine power to support and lift up “the fallen one.” One verse reads: “she has fallen and shall not rise, the virgin of Israel.” A second verse reads: “as I have fallen, so surely shall I rise.” The first verse can be understood as referring to the service of the outer, static circle, the attribute of true equanimity in relation to all worldly phenomena. One can fall to the very “lowest energy level” of physical reality, unable to raise himself, and be totally reliant on the loving kindness of Divine Providence to sustain him. The second verse, implying inner, active, motivation to rise, though surely dependent upon Divine support and aid, can be understood as referring to the service of the inner, dynamic circle of spiritual aspiration."
As is the case for any two concentric circles, the bottom of the outer circle descends below that of the inner circle, yet its upper portion is higher in origin than that of the inner circle. This in itself is the ultimate manifestation of “the end” being enwedged in “the beginning.” “The end” here refers to the service of the outer circle itself. “The beginning” refers to the ultimate objective of the inner circle, the revelation below, in Worlds, of God’s very Essence, latently present in the simple faith inherent in the worldly service of equanimity.

Tet - "The tet is the initial letter of the word tov, “good.” The form of the tet is “inverted,” thus symbolizing hidden, inverted good–as expressed in the Zohar: “its good is hidden within it.” The form of the letter chet symbolizes the union of groom and bride consummating with conception. The secret of the tet (numerically equivalent to nine, the nine months of pregnancy) is the power of the mother to carry her inner, concealed good – the fetus – throughout the period of pregnancy."



Pregnancy is the power to bring the potential to actualization. The revelation of new, actual energy, the revelation of birth, is the secret of the next letter of the alef-beit, the yud. The yud reveals the point of “Essential Life” as realized in the secret of conception of the chet and carried, impregnated, in the tet.
Of the eight synonyms for “beauty” in Hebrew, tov–“good”–refers to the most inner, inverted, and “modest” state of beauty. This level of beauty is that personified in Torah by Rebecca and Bat Sheva, who are described as “very beautiful [goodly] in appearance.”
At the beginning of Creation, the appearance of light is termed “good” in God’s eyes: “And God saw the light was good.” Our Sages interpret this to mean “good to be hidden for the tzadikim in the Time to Come.” “And where did He hide it? In the Torah, for ‘there is no good other than Torah.'”
The Ba’al Shem Tov teaches that the “Time to Come” refers also to every generation. Each soul of Israel is a potential tzadik (as it is said: “and your people are all tzadikim“), connected to the goodly light hidden in Torah. The more one actualizes his potential to be a tzadik, the more goodness he reveals from the Torah “womb.”
In the first verse of the Torah – “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth” – the initial letters of “the heavens and the earth” spell God’s “hidden Name” in Creation (alef-hei-vav-hei), according to Kabbalah. The numerical value of this name is seventeen, the same as that of the word, tov, “good.” The word tzadik equals 12 times 17 = 204, the total value of the twelve permutations of the four letters of this hidden Name. Tzadikim, who are called “good,” possess the power of the hidden Name (derived from “the heavens and the earth”), the hidden goodness needed to unite heaven and earth and thereby reveal the inner light and purpose of Creation. Just as the alef possesses the power to bear opposites – the power of the firmament to join the higher and lower waters together – so does the tet possess the power to unite the upper and lower worlds, “heavens and earth.” Chassidut teaches that in the service of the soul, this power is manifest in man when he assumes the state of being “in the world yet out of the world” simultaneously. To be “in the world” means to be fully consciousness of worldly reality in order to rectify it. To be “out of the world” means to be fully aware that in truth “there is none other besides Him.”

[Reflect back here to Colossians 1:15-17.  Satan is not outside the Son of God.  Rather, the conscience is a ruler-power-throne-authority within the Son, and byd default, inside you.  Conscience is the accuser, or Devil in the heart of the person accusing.  Mercy and Grace overcomes the Law by love]
Nun - "In Aramaic, nun means “fish.” The mem, the waters of the sea, is the natural medium of the nun, fish. The nun “swims” in the mem, covered by the waters of the “hidden world.” Creatures of the “hidden world” lack self-consciousness. Unlike fish, land animals, revealed on the face of the earth, possess self-consciousness. 
The souls of Israel divide into two general categories, symbolized by fish and land animals. The two prototypes of these categories are the leviathan and the behemot. In the present, these two categories of souls correspond to the two innate tendencies and attractions of the soul, to either the concealed and secret or revealed and legal dimensions of Torah. In the future, the two prototypes, leviathan and behemot, will unite in battle, each “killing” the “ego” of the other, thereafter to blend together in true union. Their “meat” will then be served as the feast for the tzadikim in the World to Come. The souls of the tzadikim will actually consume the very root of consciousness of our present level of soul, in order to integrate (“digest”) it into a totally new and higher level of consciousness.
[Compare this to our own simulations and versions of software.  In Hebrews 9, this simulation and revision is given away by this verse: 23 It was necessary, then, for the copies of the heavenly things to be purified with these sacrifices, but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these.]
Leviathan” equals in gematria malchut, (“kingdom,” 496). In Kabbalah, malchut, in the world of Divine Emanation, is represented by the sea, whose tides are controlled by the power of the moon, the symbol of King David (upon seeing the new moon we say, “David the king of Israel is alive forever”). When malchut descends to enliven the lower worlds it is symbolized by the earth. Thus, the leviathan is the symbol of the Divine Source of “kingdom.” In Hebrew, nunmeans “kingdom,” and in particular, the “heir to the throne.”
The “nun” is the fourteenth letter of the alef-beit, which equals “David,” the progenitor of the eternal Kingdom of Israel. The heir to David is Mashiach ben David, of whom is said: “As long as the duration of the sun his name shall rule.” Our Sages teach us that one of the names of Mashiach is Yinon (“shall rule”), cognate to nunMashiach is also referred to as “the miscarriage,” or, literally, the “fallen one.” As we will learn in the secret of the letter samech, the nun does not appear in Psalm 145, but is supported by God’s transcendent mercy, as expressed by the following letter, samech.
In general, nun corresponds in Torah to the image of falling. The soul of Mashiach experiences itself as continuously falling and dying; if not for the ever-present Hand of God “catching” it, it would crash to the ground and shatter to death. The consciousness of fall is the reflection of the egoless state of the fish, in its natural medium of water, when forced to reveal itself on dry land. This is like the experience of a hidden tzadik when forced from Above to reveal himself for the good of Israel and the world. We find this exemplified in the life and teachings of the Ba’al Shem Tov, and so will be epitomized in the life Qof Mashiach. Ultimately, the “destiny” of Mashiach and his generation is to assume the level of sea on earth, to experience, paradoxically, selfless-self-consciousness, as said in the verse of Isaiah with which Maimonides concludes his Code of Jewish Law (whose final section, “The Laws of Kings,” culminates with the description of the coming of Mashiach): “for the earth will be filled with the knowledge of God, like waters cover the sea.”
NOTE:  On the above idea of Mashiach as being equated to a miscarriage, please see the Hebrew term, "Bar (Son) Nafli (Stillborn).  Nun can hold the meaning of the Son of the Fallen, or the Son of Man.  See these links: LINK 1 / LINK 2

Quote from Link 2:  "“Rabbi Naḥman said to Rabbi Yitsḥaq: ‘Have you heard when Bar Nafli will come?’ ‘Who is Bar Nafli?’ he asked. ‘Messiah,’ he replied. ‘Do you call Messiah Bar Nafli?’ [בַּר נַפְלֵי (bar nafli), Stillborn (lit., Son of the Fallen), is numerically equivalent to בֵּן יִשָׁי (ben yishai), Son of Jesse, cf. BT Shabbat, 55a; Zohar 3:215a (RM)]."

I am hopeful that the Mystical Significance of the Hebrew Aleph Bet has cleared up any confusion you might have concerning God's plan for the Accuser of the Old Testament, and his identity as the Lord of the Old Testament.  I am sourcing the document linked in this paragraph as further reading on the topic of God's plan and ultimate purpose for Satan in comparison to the risen Christ (Righteous One of Israel).  From this, you may gain new insight into his baptized identity as the Son of God into Samsara.  By overcoming his own Satan (Conscience), he defeats the same with Righteousness.  This is OUR story as Adam's image in the lower waters of creation.  From fallen to risen Christ, the First Adam becomes the Last Adam (Firstfruits).  Both wheat and chaff are one in the same.  Our lower nature is burned away by creation, allowing the harvest of wheat from the process.  

Between the Old and New Testaments

The following verses represent the Lord preparing the second temple and High Priest to become his own scapegoat as Joshua / Yeshua.  By giving up his old nature, he hangs on the cross (body of man).  Baptism is his own immersion into the waters below (Samsara in Sanskrit).  


The Ruler of the Underworld (Yama) becomes the Redeemer of Man.  How?  By paying the cost of Genesis 9:6 



- "Whoever sheds human blood, by humans his blood shall be shed, for in the image Elohim made humans."  NOG

Silencing of the Lord's Conscience:



Zechariah 3
Then he showed me Joshua, the chief priest, standing in front of the Messenger of Yahweh. Satan the Accuser was standing at Joshua’s right side to accuse him. Yahweh said to Satan, “I, Yahweh, silence you, Satan! I, Yahweh, who has chosen Jerusalem, silence you! Isn’t this man like a burning log snatched from a fire?”Joshua was wearing filthy clothes and was standing in front of the Messenger. The Messenger said to those who were standing in front of him, “Remove Joshua’s filthy clothes.” Then he said to Joshua, “See, I have taken your sin away from you, and I will dress you in fine clothing.”So I said, “Put a clean turban on his head.” They put a clean turban on his head and dressed him while the Messenger of Yahweh was standing there.


Matthew 7
Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judgeye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?

Forgive and you are forgiven.  You can only judge yourself in the end.  You are the Lord (Colossians 1:15-17).



SATAN = YOUR CONSCIENCE AND LOWER NATURE AND THE CHAFF BURNED AWAY

CHRIST = THE WHEAT SAVED 

BOTH ARE THE SAME PLANT

YOU ARE BOTH WHEAT (SAVED) AND CHAFF (BURNED AWAY)


ALL MEANS ALL


Job 19 - 
I know that my redeemer lives,
    and that in the end he will stand on the earth.
 
And after my skin has been destroyed,

    yet[e] in[f] my flesh I will see God;
 
I myself will see him

    with my own eyes—I, and not another.

    How my heart yearns within me!
“If you say, ‘How we will hound him,

    since the root of the trouble lies in him,’
 
you should fear the sword yourselves;

    for wrath will bring punishment by the sword,

    and then you will know that there is judgment.”


Realization is knowing who you are.  If you accuse the Lord for being the Devil, you miss the point of your own journey to overcome the trouble that lies in you too.  

This IS the good news.  This is the common story of all religion.  Reaching for the higher nature to know the same.  Love only recognizes itself.  God is Love.  

Now read John 17
