The eyepiece DOES NOT assemble. It is all one piece. If you unscrew the bottom or the top-- never do this. You must reassemble the lenses exactly.
The eyepiece goes directly into the diagonal (an L shaped device with a mirror inside, and then the diagonal goes into the tube.. That's it. You can buy eyepieces from dozens of different suppliers. Here is one:
All astronomical telescopes show upside down and or inverted images-- it's normal nothing is wrong. You are applying too much magnification. Do not use the 2x barlow-- and start practicing how to focus using only the eyepiece with the largest number written on it which is your LOWEST power.
You can practice focusing during the daytime on a distant object like a telephone pole or a building.
If it's like the picture it is a reflector style telescope mounted on an equitorial mount. Meade has a very similar telescope, and Meade also has a web page with all their manuals. They all go together about the same way.
Look under REFLECTOR for one similar to your telescope and download a manual here: http://www.meade.com/manuals/index.html
This is very similar to your scope. http://www.meade.com/manuals/TelescopeManuals/Reflectors/062002Jupiter114EQ-D.pdf
Look through the tube with the eyepiece out, and lens cap off. You should see light coming in. Then use the lowest power eyepiece to start. You can use it on ground objects initially until you get a hand on it. Many make the mistake of going directly to the highest power, and get off the track as the field of view is tiny, and objects are dim.
