The problem about 'the real truth bout the bible' is that there is not really such a thing. People interpretate in a multitude of different ways.
If you want to find the 'truth' about the bible you should study different commentaries on it and make up your own mind along the way.

The bible might also be a good place to start if you actually care about the truth about the bible :P

Mastery does not occur when you've performed a feat once or twice. Instead, it comes after years of training, when you realize that you no longer notice when you're performing a feat which used to require so much effort. Even walking takes years of training for a human: why not everything else?

Have you already read that book by Mr. Bushby?

After reading that book, what it is saying was that the old testament (the Torah) actually came from the Great Pyramid and that everything starts from the book of Thoth....(the original heiroglyphs 22 Major Arcana of the Tarot). And the divine letters that came from the rainbow serpent inside the Great Pyramid was encoded into the original book of Thoth. And Ezra are just one of the many initates from the Great Pyramid and wrote the Torah. And the old testament was not a historical book but actually a magickal book written in a such a way that it could be understand like a story of an ordinary man but understood in a different way by those who know the secret.

Also, another thing said in that book was that the original book of Thoth was then preserved by high priests and made to look like a card and later on other cards were added into it to hide its secret and was carried by Gypsies (travelling Egyptians) to different parts of the world. Then it was erroneously used for fortune telling, but what really makes this to become a tool for psychic because the encoded divine letters was perceived by the subconcious of those who are sensitive and was mistakenly used for seeing the future.

I was also surprised, because there are many Tarot cards available with different designs and comparing it to the original book of Thoth it is very different.

Also one thing that made me curious was that there are meditation technique in that book but it has a warning. Did anyone of you here tried those meditation technique? What was your personal experience? or this should only be performed by advanced magi?

@Enchia: Assumption, you cannot say there is no secret behind bible if you never failed in finding it (eg because you weren't searching).
@Steve: Good point
@wondering: First of all, Tarot was associated with hieroglyphs, Hebrew letters, book of Thoth, etc much later, it originally WAS a card game. History of Tarot is well known today, much more than in past centuries. Unfortunately there are still so many urban legends flying around in this information age.

No, I haven't. Have you read the bible? ;)

There's really no point in reading books about the bible until you've read the bible itself, because you'll never be able to sort the liars from those who have actual insight into the material until you yourself have some insight into the material, and the only way to gain that is to study the material itself instead of just satellite sources that talk about the material :) (this concept is true of any source material, when compared against satellite sources that talk about the original source)

@wondering: Have you studied only the New Testament or the Old one as well? And have you tried to study the bible under different paradigm? Eg Jewish or Kabbalistic?

Hepaby!

Or, just read the bible directly. Not under any paradigm, for the various jewish/christian/esoteric paradigms just attempt to give explanations of certain passages that fit their beliefs, rather than fitting their beliefs to an understanding of the bible.

If you ask which version, I say read all of the standard versions to see what the differences between them are so that you can get a better feel for what the original authors were trying to portray, as opposed to an exact reading of only the english versions.

For the "real truth" about the Bible -- that is, the historical/archaeological truth, and educated speculation as to the thought behind certain passages -- as far as it can be known, try Isaac Asimov's Guide to the Bible, vols. I & II. This is a great book which quotes all relevant verses from two different translations and explains what all is known about the verse and about whatever it refers to, presenting you with everything from random trivia to profound scholarship. If one has already read the Bible, it will certain open one's eyes to new knowledge and new interpretations.

As for the tale about Thoth and all that in The Secret: it is not true, at least in the conventional sense. Maybe it conceals some arcane wisdom, however.
