The search for the SELF
Man Know Thyself
The Seal of Solomon is a symbol of the unity of mans lower mind with his higher self, it is the Star of David.
The Star of David, a six-sided star or hexagram is known among Hebrews today as Mogen David (perhaps similar is Latvian Mi(r)dzina Tauta = the (star) folk sparkles) It was also called Solomon's Seal and consisted of two interlaced triangles, man's consciousness merged with Universal Consciousness, the Unity of mind.
The Star of David is appropriately called a "STAR"
and - in our "very speculative" view - it represents a double triangulation which "maps" the position of the major stars of the heavens with the major axis along the Milky Way from Sirius to Aquila.As well as the divine cosmos within man.
Know thyself. Knowledge of oneself is the only real knowledge, for as one understands oneself, only then may one truly understand another. Hence, the Oracle of Delphi proclaiming to know thyself, for within each of us, all is contained.
Within each of us everything is contained; God, the Christ, the angels, the celestial and terrestrial’s kingdoms, and the powers of hell. Outside of us is nothing of which we can conceive, we can know nothing except that which exists in our minds. No god or devil, no spirit or any power whatever can act upon us unless it centers into our constitution. Only that which exists in us has existence for God/The All.
The term "Paradise" means a state of purity and innocence and happiness, but not necessarily knowledge. We have had to learn to know evil so as to be able to realize good. Good being the primal will of God.
In paradise there is perfect life without disturbance, and a perpetual day, and the paradisaical soul is clear like transparent glass, and is fully penetrated by the light of the divine sun.
Our bodies likewise appeared luminous, because our terrestrial substance is absorbed in the celestial essence. It radiates a pure, divine light.
This was so and will become so as truth reveals itself because our original thoughts and will are pure, and therefore the spirit of “The All” (the union of will and thought) manifested itself in producing a pure and luminous form, not burdened with the gross material elements which form at present the bodies of human beings.
"Then, as now, our body is the product of our own thoughts."
The Life and Doctrines of Jacob Boehme- Franz Hartmann M.D.
The above statements are taken from the life and doctrines of Jacob Boehme, a great Christian alchemist, who wrote in the 16th century. Boehme was a true Hermeticist bringing through the ageless wisdom.
Boehme's conception of the allegory of “the fall” is fundamental to understanding the relationship between Hermetics and the esoteric interpretation of the Bible which is rooted in Qabalah. Man's fall in reality was a fall in consciousness - a forgetting of himself, a falling away from the Holy Spirit or divine inspiration which gives life meanings.
Man's fall or apparent fall was known to God as it is the Divine plan which is occurring now for us to awaken in this New Age, the Age of Aquarius, to our true identity and divinity and realize that the Christ, that is the pure intelligence of God, is contained within each of us.
Concerning the Zodiac
Whatever is born or done in a moment of time, has the qualities of this moment of time.
C. G. Jung
For those not familiar with the works of Michael Tsarion, I post some of this man's wisdom here, it is necessary, as Michael's work is essential, as related to this work. We hope for his approval of posting his words here.
"The Servants of Truth know from experience how few friends are won when and if they should endeavor to expose the dirty little secrets of religion’s upper echelon. Nevertheless, a Servant of Truth is not permanently daunted by controversy or resistance.
The Servant of Truth is aware that one is much more likely to get a cut from a blunt knife than from a sharp one. And he is aware that the cost of ignorance is ultimately far greater than the price paid for knowledge.
The Servant of Truth knows that freedom is never free and that silence is most definitely consent. He comes to realize that on the great board game of life if he fatally chooses to not occupy the white squares of knowledge he will be manipulated by those who will."
The only good is knowledge and the only evil ignorance - Socrates
"Along the way, we bear in mind that it is not one torch we must light, and not a single shadowy labyrinth we must explore, but three. Like a newly initiated Masonic neophyte we too must negotiate three steps toward truth and empowerment.
May our destination be the same as that purported by Masonry. May our three lonely roads lead us to the one altar, one shrine - that of Truth. Truly, it is not hyperbole to say that we are, during the years of this New Millennium, going to experience the greatest of revelations concerning the most relevant of human mysteries."
"Some of us may be glad and grateful for the coming of the light of revelation. Others among us may be startled by the proximity of such knowledge and many will be deeply threatened by its presence. Many will not wish to see in themselves the dirt that this light will surely reveal. For these types there are always churches and priests. There will always be confessors in black to hide behind. There will be those who will seek, with their hymns, confessionals, and incense, to appease the profound inner angst of men fast approaching the end of their present cycle of existence."
"Come to the center of the earth, and there you shall find the Philosopher's Stone - Basilius Valentinus (Fifteenth Century Alchemist) " The center of the earth is the human skull and the philosophers stone is the PINEAL gland of the brain.
"The enemy that we face, which has haunted our world for millennia, will not concede of its own will. It will not yield or even give ground", for the only enemy that ever existed is one's own mind, right there in one's own field of consciousness.
"The problem of evil is, however, not solved with a clenched fist but with an open, receptive, and mutable mind. These characteristics are represented by the Archangel Michael and his mighty sword, by Arthur’s Excalibur, by Robin’s flaming arrows, and by Merlin’s serpentine wand. We overcome the direst enemies with knowledge not might."
The knowledge that all spiritual texts are talking about the same thing, and that is overcoming the beast, the lower mind rooted in the first three chakras of the body. This hidden occult fact must first be known, and then the knowledge utilized and practiced, so that their may be peace on earth.
"Each author has labored to untie the tight knots of confusion from around the ark of the mysteries, and we are indebted to them for such commitment. But, dare we say it, for all the adroit study and erudition of these authors, it appears that the final “Holy Grail” , remains elusive", it has remained elusive, because they have failed to recognize that meditation was the lost word, the holy grail, and since they failed to understand this fact, this priceless practice has been looked upon as trivial and mundane, and non essential to human growth. In fact MEDITATION is the key, it is the most essential thing that anyone can do, it is the in fact the secret teachings of all ages.
Woe to you who call evil good and good evil: that put darkness for light, and light for darkness: that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter - (Isaiah 5:20)
"We can go so far as to say that it is not Jesus himself and his history or authenticity that interests most church-going Christians; it is what Jesus as a healing icon can do for them emotionally and physically that matters most.
The average "believer" is not truly concerned with God’s nature, or with God’s mysteries. He is merely concerned with what God can do for him, and how God might make his sad, mediocre life less insipid. The average believer is not concerned about the true hidden occult meaning of Christ .No, the average believer wants Jesus to do something for him."
"He wants Jesus to act on his behalf and to provide various physical, emotional, and spiritual comforts and securities, like a child in need of a security blanket.
Yes, what a great pleasure a mentally and emotionally destitute (“meek”) man finds knowing that for the nominal fee of blind obedience his jealous god will fulfill his needs and also dispense hell and damnation to his enemies. Who could pass up such a platinum deal?
The day that Jesus and god fail to cut it then the guru gimmick-merchant on the block will do just as well. Christian moralists may reflect upon the manner in which their own grandiloquent religious espousal's have fostered the same pernicious disaffection in society that they vehemently attribute to atheism and materialism."
"Yes, religion is the little more than a narcissist’s Materialism."
The story of Jesus the God, or of Jesus the Man, is interesting to less and less rational people in the world today, and there is nothing amiss with that. It is a good sign. The story of truth, of god, and of the divine in us, should not be fixed in the special past, but in the special present - in the moment that is. Moreover, when we do our historical homework we find out that the story of Jesus is no more dramatic and miraculous, no more pathetic and majestic than the story of other masters of knowledge and Servants of Truth. Who dares declare that the story of Jesus Christ is any more captivating or inspiring than that of Imhotep, Apollonius of Tyana, Siddhartha, Milerepa, Ramakrishna, Vivekananda, Ramana Maharishi, Sarmad, or of Jiddu Krishnamurti?
"And, dare we ask how many people in today’s manic world care a jot for these bright lights of past times? For every Christ and Muhammad there are a thousand other god-men, born of virgins, imbued with the deepest wisdom and enamored with a divine mission. India is filled with like men and women today. So let it be known that there is nothing truly unique about the life of Jesus Christ. The only thing that is unique about the Christ is the lengths to which the Cult, operating in his name, has gone to suppress the truth and to foist their unsustainable sectarian beliefs upon the world."
"The Christian zeal for brutal oppression and its violent conversion of non-believers, its penchant for false promises, its expertise with deception and its ability to spawn the vilest of human-monsters are what make it unique in the world. Therefore, unlike Gadalla, Bushby and other writers of their persuasion, we find our personal interests and passions to not be fulfilled by simple refutation and revision.
We are not content to merely point out the manifold fallacies of the Bible and to expose the lack of historicity behind most of the key events therein. Nor are we content to merely uncover evidence for a mortal Jesus to replace the immortal one."
"We are not content to merely discover the tomb of a dead prophet-king who cheated crucifixion, or who never raised the dead, or performed miracles upon the banks of the Dead Sea, who had wife and offspring and who lived happily ever after. No, these are not our motivations. In light of the splendor and challenge of our metatheme such biographies prove too prosaic to overly preoccupy us.
Our endeavor and motivation is a great deal more heretical and seditious. Yet, suggestively, it is the same motivation of great masters and enlighteners of the past, whose lives, words, and deeds sparked hot with rebellion and iconoclasm. Our agenda is, like theirs, to introduce the reader to the God and the Christ within the Self. There is no more sacred motivation and none which more threatens the ego and its external representatives.
Our mission is to assist in the removal of the insinuated theological viruses which infect the minds and hearts of men, and that prevent human beings on this planet from realizing and tapping into their own divinity. Our sharp tool for accomplishing this psychological surgery is DECONSTRUCTION. Our endeavor is a catabolic one and, therefore, it flies in the face of those desirous of remaining moribund within the emotional and mental comfort zones.
Our deconstructive model and approach reveals the means and mechanics of how the authority of man’s intrinsic Selfhood has been molested by the connoisseurs of deception, by those with a great deal to lose should the subjects under their hypnotic power awaken and become ignited by the Spirit of Rebellion that lies dormant within them.
It is this spirit, after all, that is exemplified by the great saviors of the world. All of them, from Tonatiuh, to Odin, to Christ, to Socrates, were rebels, iconoclasts and outcasts. And yet, each was sent to the world by the higher power to execute the will of the so-called “Holy Spirit.”
Rebellion, the hallmark of all light-bringers, Servant of Truths and Saviors is, therefore, a true service to the Holy Spirit. Rebellion against those authorities, systems, or ideas that attempt to molest, impede or confound our sacred individuality, sovereignty and true voice, constitutes service to the Holy Spirit.
Rebelliousness is the hallmark of the Holy Spirit. Little wonder then that the Christians personified this Spirit of Rebellion as Lucifer the fallen angel. Little wonder that they obscured the actual significance of the Holy “Ghost.” Little wonder that they frown on the modern outcasts who will not conform to their mental whips or ingest their diet of intoxicating fictions
Human sickness is so severe that few can bear to look at it, but those who do will become well - Vernon Howard
Shiva, the Holy Spirit& the Return to Selfhood
Whoever cannot find a temple in his heart, the same can never find his heart in any temple - Mikhail Naimy (The Book of Mirdad)
Do you deny me the entrance to heaven, I who have at last learned the mystery of myself - (Egyptian Mystery School Phrase)
Though most Christians will be loathe to accept it, it is in accordance with true Gnostic precepts to identify this so-called “Holy Spirit” (the third spiritual essence and principle within the sacred Trinity) as our own Selfhood.
The Holy Spirit idea, which may be traced back to the feminine “Sophia” was referred to as "Wisdom" and was equated with knowledge and the love of knowledge. This knowledge may extend to the Son of God and then to God himself but must first begin with Self Knowledge.
This is literally what Sophia of the Trinity is - Knowledge of the Self. The conspiring forces that sought to make this Self Knowledge taboo and who distorted and complicated our understanding and veneration of the true Holy Spirit were attempting to blot out the Self from the Holy Trinity and from the spiritual canon.
To imagine the Holy Spirit to be some vague presence or to imagine it to be some indefinable aspect of the Virgin Mary, a white ethereal dove, an abstract metaphysical principle, or an inexplicable mystery, suited the desires of the Christian priesthood, but it denied their flock their most valuable key to the gates of salvation. What we were not told is that without the key to Knowledge of the Self, the others keys, should they even come into our possession, are worthless.
It is this journey of self discovery that true mystics embark upon and that sincere philosophers aspire to. But this safari, this trek into the jungles of the Self, was regarded as a reprehensible and even lethal enterprise to those plotting the charts of official religion. And so it was decided that the first and highest priority lay in instilling the wholly false notion that man receives enlightened from without, after penance and after the performance of certain fixed rites overseen by the priests that he must unquestionably revere, serve, and sustain
"The "Holy Ghost," of the ensconced priesthoods, is something that "descends" upon a man from outside. It is not something that awakens from within his own being. It is something sent by another from outside. This implication was enough to send man out of his own being and into the hands of deceivers seeking to rape him of his own inner wealth. In truth, there is no enlightenment outside oneself. "
There is nothing worth attaining that does not originate within one's own being.
"If there is such a thing as enlightenment it cannot be found in the company of gurus, priests, or experts. Only its antithesis can be found in such company. As the inscription at Delphi implied, it is only after a man has ended his own inner division and come to rational clarity over the mystery of himself that he can inherit true wisdom.
Only then will that which is worth having make itself known. This idea can still be found expressed within the tomes of official religions. Such entries were probably either remnants of the heavily plagiarized Gnostic canon or clues left by higher minded clerics silently traveling upon their own personal "Siddhartha Roads."
Without father, without mother, without human descent; His life has neither beginning nor end; but, as the Son of God, abides as a Holy Priest continually - (Hebrews 7:3)
Many stand outside at the door, but it is only the solitaries who will enter into the bridal chamber - (Jesus Christ's words as recorded in the Gospel of Thomas)
That means MEDITATION, this is the KEY!
As said, the knowledge of god, or even of the son of god, is worthless to the man who does not know the ways of his own being The chaos and debauch in our world today is the result of this lack of Self-Knowledge. The casualties from drugs and from false spiritual paths and teachers also stand as testimony to our assertion and thesis.
a distorted development of autonomy is the root cause of the pathological and, ultimately, evil element in human beings - Arno Gruen (The Betrayal of the Self: The Fear of Autonomy in Men and Women)
The most strongly enforced of all known taboos, is the taboo against knowing who or what you really are behind the mask of your apparently separate, independent, and isolated ego - Alan Watts (The Book: On the Taboo Against Knowing Who You Are)
The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will often be lonely, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself - Fredrick Nietzsche
Nietzsche has just described the real meaning of the edict, that no one could buy or sell in those days, amazing!!! Absolutely true, just try and step outside the box, and see your family and friends abandon you and ridicule you.
The spiritual path is the loneliest road, it is the dark night of the soul, but unfortunately, it must be traveled alone, because a fool cannot help you on your journey.
Alas, I can see that you do not know what it means to be alone. Wherever there have been powerful societies, governments, religions, or public opinions - in short, wherever there was any kind of tyranny, it has hated the lonely philosopher; for philosophy opens up a refuge for man where no tyranny can reach: the cave of inwardness, the labyrinth of the breast; and that annoys all tyrants - Fredrick Nietzsche (Schopenhauer as Teacher) Again Nietzsche just described MEDITATION! The cave of Inwardness.
We cannot be sure of having something to live for unless we are willing to die for it.

I am not a liberator. Liberators do not exist. The people liberate themselves.

Cruel leaders are replaced only to have new leaders turn cruel.
The revolution is not an apple that falls when it is ripe. You have to make it fall.
I would rather die standing up, then live life on my knees.
There are no boundaries in this struggle to the death. We cannot be indifferent to what happens anywhere in the world, for a victory by any country over imperialism is our victory; just as any country’s defeat is a defeat for all of us.
Whenever death may surprise us, let it be welcome if our battle cry has reached even one receptive ear and another hand reaches out to take up our arms.
“I don’t know if the Cuban revolution will survive or not. It’s difficult to say. But [if it doesn't]… don’t come looking for me among the refugees in the embassies. I’ve had that experience, and I’m not ever going to repeat it. I will go out with a machine gun in my hand, to the barricades… I’ll keep fighting to the end.”
“Let me say, at the risk of seeming ridiculous, that the true revolutionary is guided by great feelings of love.”
“It’s a sad thing not to have friends, but it is even sadder not to have enemies.”
To accomplish much you must first lose everything.

Believe me! The secret of reaping the greatest fruitfulness and the greatest enjoyment from life is to live dangerously!
~ Friedrich Nietzsche
"Yes, to jump over the bridge of Selfhood hoping to land on the ship leaving for paradise, is to fall and drown for sure in the cold, swirling, demon-infested depths of perplexity and insanity. “Self-Realization is necessary before God-Realization” was the motto of the Vedanta masters and sages. “Know Thyself,” were the words at the Delphic Oracle in Greece. The temple of the living God is “within” announced the Christian Christ. The message is simple: There is no enlightenment outside of the Self.
Man is his own priest and woman her own priestess. The cardinal misconception, that we can receive our Satori and our bliss from someone or something other than the Self, has achieved more than a reinforcement of the “master-slave” dichotomy. As a philosophy and belief it is the antithesis of that which was taught by the Druid Magi of the ancient world."
"We understand that a rational man cannot say, like Christ is meant to have done, that: "I and my Father are one," unless we are each first one within ourselves to begin with. The "Father" is complete, and if we are not, then how can we possibly find oneness with him or with anyone else?
The Christian who imagines that being "one” with the Father implies the abnegation of Selfhood is little more than a masochist. He acts sadistically to himself. He commits a cardinal sin with just this kind of illogical thinking. How can a mere nothing, a human zero, merge with God? After all, who is it that comprehends this state of oneness? Logically it is only a Self that can merge or bond with God's Self. Anything else is fantasy."
When you know yourselves, then you will be known, and you will know that you are the sons of the living Father. But if you do not know yourselves, then you are in poverty, and you are poverty - (Gospel of Thomas)
You yourself are even another little world and have within you the sun and the moon and also the stars - Origen (Church Father, 3rd Century AD)
You are the temple of God. For the temple of God is holy, which temple you are - (1 Corinthians 3:16)
” People have a hard time letting go of their suffering , Out of a fear of the unknown , they prefer suffering that is familiar “. Louise Bogan
” The truth that many people never understand , until it is too late , is that the more you try to avoid suffering the more you suffer because smaller and more insignificant things begin to torture you in proportion to your fear of being hurt “. Thich Nhat Hanh
” Pain is inevitable ; suffering is optional “. Thucydides (471 BC – 400 BC )
"The abnegation of Selfhood is tantamount to self-murder. Thanks to orthodox religion and its anti-human dogmas this sadism to the self is rampant throughout the world. We can find it in the East and in the West. Religion, government, and corporations exist, it seems, to rape men of their inherent sovereignty and to crush the Spirit of Rebellion.
These forces are obscene contradictions to the true Holy Spirit. The Church, in particular, is not the agent of the Holy Spirit but its greatest enemy. A careful reading of the bible reveals how many passages are given over to the question of slavery and how endorsed it is by god and his terrestrial agents."
The man that will do presumptuously, and will not hearken unto the priest…even that man shall die – (Deuteronomy 17:12)
Slaves, submit yourselves to your masters with all respect, not only to those whose are good and considerate, but also to those who are harsh. For it is commendable if a man bears up under pain of unjust suffering because he is conscious of God…But if you suffer for doing good and you endure it, this is commendable before God - (Peter 2:18-21)
The same thing applies to the works of both Martin Luther and John Calvin. These two mentally deranged religious fanatics lived to see their irrational theological ideas infect entire nations. To their minds man was an absolute nothing. Men were sinful worms and were divided into those who would be saved and those who would be damned. There was nothing man could do to change his fate because God had decided on a man's fate before his birth. Therefore, total submission to God was man's sole function.
For God wants to save us not by our own but by extraneous justice and wisdom, by a justice that does not come from ourselves and does not originate in ourselves but comes to us from somewhere else, that comes exclusively from the outside and is entirely alien to ourselves - Martin Luther (Vorlesung uber den Romerbrief)
Nor can you find any other remedy than do deny yourself and discard all selfish considerations, and to devote your whole attention to the pursuit of those things which the Lord requires of you - John Calvin (Institutes of the Christian Religion)
Once the abnegation of the Self is accepted, and once man is so humbled, he becomes weak and submissive. He does not exist for his own sake. He exists for God and for the Church that acts in God’s name. He also becomes putty in the hands earthly demigods. Interestingly, the same men who cajoled men to relinquish all sense of personal individuality and independence also compelled men to obey their earthly demigods without question. The sick contradictory attitudes of Martin Luther, toward power, independence and freedom, are apparent from his own words:
Nothing is more poisonous, harmful or devilish than a man in rebellion, even if those in authority are evil or without faith, nevertheless the authority and its power is good and from God, therefore wherever there is power and where it flourishes, there it is and there it remains because God has ordained it - (Vorlesung uber den Romerbrief)
His scintillating logic regarding the evils of monarchy is revealed in the following passage:
God would prefer to suffer the government to exist no matter how evil, rather than to allow the rabble to riot, no matter how justified they are in doing so. A prince should remain a prince no matter how tyrannical he may be. He beheads necessarily only a few since he must have subjects in order to be a ruler - (Against the Robbing and Murdering Hordes of Peasants)
From these passages, we can see why the abnegation of Selfhood is subtly but deliberately enforced throughout the so-called "civilized" societies of the world. We can also see the consequences that arise from the eradication of a man's sense of Selfhood.
We can see what kind of citizen is created and what kind of person. Indeed, it is the subjugation of Selfhood that has driven us perilously near to the gates of oblivion. Perhaps we can now understand why it is that a man cannot be “forgiven” for sins committed against the “Holy Spirit,” that is, against his own Higher Self. And perhaps we can understand why it was so vitally important for early Judeo-Christian mythmongers to obscure the identity of this feminine third party in the Blessed Trinity, symbolized by the dove.
And so I tell you, every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven men, but the blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven - (Matthew 12:31)
Jesus said: “He who blasphemes against the Father will be forgiven, and he who blasphemes against the Son will be forgiven; but he who blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven, either on earth or in heaven” - (Gospel of Thomas).
Yes, remove the Self from the Trinity and from the ontology and your demonic schemes of domination will succeed beyond your wildest expectations. Replace the Self in the metaphysic and your end is assured. Bring back the Self into the picture and we can follow the bright Dove of Truth homeward to the final place of rest and understanding.
Symbolically speaking, we find it more than suggestive that the dove was chosen to represent the third party of the Blessed Trinity since it is not a Christian emblem. It is a very ancient pagan symbol. The origin of the mystical symbolism of the dove comes from astrology and from the gnosis of the ancient Stellar Cults. The dove is, in fact, the symbol for the sign of Scorpio that is one of the two signs of the zodiac connected to the Spirit of Rebellion.
So, we find it more than significant that the symbol chosen to represent the Higher Self - the true Holy Spirit - should relate directly and undeniably to the spirit and act of Rebellion, and to the Spirit of Contradiction. Ergo, we find it more than significant that the bible should proclaim it to be the direst and most irredeemable of sins to contradict or violate the will of this Holy Spirit.
Before the Cross, Christians were asked to take the Dove or the Ship as the symbol of the Christ. This was recommended by Clemens of Alexandria - Madame Helena Petrovna Blavatsky (The Secret Doctrine)
Since we have been committing this "sin" non stop, age after age, it follows that we should indeed find ourselves struggling and choking in the webs of our own making. It stands to reason that humans are to be found floundering in an squalid swamp of non-issues, existing as prisoners in their own palaces, lacking the intelligence to know the danger they face.
Therefore, we make it our task to draw attention to the significance to this sin against the Self. From the ending of this most mortal of sins comes a new rapport with that true Comforter, that eternal Daemon (Guardian) that has long worked for our awakening and arrival.
Now that this is understood, we are in a good position to finally see the battlefield and the rival factions. Because of our new understanding we grow proficient in determining who the real misleaders are. They are those who would condemn, stifle, and even obliterate this supernal Spirit of Rebellion.
They are those who would fashion for us oppressive political leviathans, inhuman psychopathic corporations, and repressive religions, to ensure that the Spirit that is essential to our existence is driven forth into the wilderness never to return. With that Great Spirit gone, lying in its unmarked grave, humans fall cringing at the mercy of the terror-wolves, the daylight vampires, and phantoms of death who crave our ruin.
Thankfully, the one thing that never dies in this world at any time is the Spirit of Rebellion. It will remain there in some one or other, in some hermit, or poet, musician, playwright, or film-maker. It has been beaten and crushed many a time but it is going nowhere. So we can be truly thankful for that. We can, therefore, look to and rely upon this Great Spirit for salvation in the darkest and deadliest of times. We can learn to love the word "NO!" We can learn to love its refreshing adamantine sound.
We can learn to rely upon the great Spirit of Rebellion physically and socially and we can also learn to rely upon it mentally. We need to become accustomed, even acclimatized, to the Spirit of Rebellion, because it is already moving in the world, and will soon make itself vividly apparent. When the Dove descends into our world it will, however, don a quite different garb, a different persona than the one we may be familiar with.
The Dove is Scorpio and it represents the energy of Pluto. In psychological terms, Pluto is the “Shadow.” Symbolically speaking, it is nature’s psychic surgeon or organic hygienist that appears to cleanse the soul of all its toxicity and repressed debris so that it may be chastened and virginal enough to perhaps receive the clear elixir of truth. That Plutonic Shadow, the emissary of the Holy Spirit, has already been manifesting in the world and it will continue to do so for a decade or more. Its presence is the harbinger of truth and above all - Freedom.
Therefore, only those imprisoners of human minds and souls have something to fear from the coming "Age of Revealing." As the Scorpionic thirteenth card of the Tarot shows (Rider-Waite Deck) it is only the popes and the kings and their progeny who will be leveled before Pluto’s great steed.
Yes, it is only the emotionally, morally, and spiritually toxic amongst us, the "People of the Lie," who have something to fear from the approach of Pluto's silver scythe. The rest can benefit from and even enjoy the healing that comes after the pestilence, the plague, and the offending virus has been eradicated.
All we have to remember that is everything in our world is cleaned - our bodies our cars and our carpets. Only our emotions and psyche remain perpetually neglected and unhygienic. This is what the energy represented by Pluto comes in to correct. These are your two witnesses.
There is a reason why the word sanity is etymologically related to the word sanitary. The sanitary mind is sane, and the unsanitary mind is, by definition, unsane, and even insane.
We must all face the fact that our leaders are certifiably insane, or worse - William S. Burroughs
The gigantic catastrophes that threaten us today are not elemental happenings of a physical or biological order, but psychic events. To a quite terrifying degree we are threatened by wars and revolutions which are nothing other than psychic epidemics.
At any moment several millions of human beings may be smitten with a new madness, and then we shall have another world war or devastating revolution. Instead of being at the mercy of wild beasts, earthquakes, landslides, and inundations, modern man is battered by the elemental forces of his own psyche - Carl Gustav Jung
"Your enemies are those of your own house" Jesus, the Bible.
Most people do not see, understand, or care very much about this catastrophe of the planet because they are overwhelmingly preoccupied with grave psychological problems. The environmental crisis is rooted in the psychological crisis of the modern individual. This makes the search for an eco-psychology crucial; we must understand better what terrible thing is happening to the modern human mind, why it is happening, and what can be done about it - Glenn Parton (The Machine in our Heads)
Till now man has been up against Nature. From now he will be up against his own nature - Dennis Gabor
Thou shalt know; self-chosen are the woes that fall on men - how wretched, for they see not good so near, nor hearken to its voice - few only know the pathway of deliverance from ill - Pythagoras
In short, the men and women who have done their spiritual homework and who are psychologically and morally hygienic have nothing to fear from the times ahead. If one stays in their meditations, they have nothing to fear from these bogies.
What many paranoiacs, fear-mongers, and doomsday merchants imagine to be the countdown to extinction is actually the countdown to freedom. What many falsely imagine to be the instigation of a tyrannical “New World Order is, in fact, going to be the removal of all such draconian order from the world, forever.
The saber-rattling and war-mania of the world’s power-elites is but a subconscious fear-reaction to the inevitable approach of change, a desperate and futile attempt to offset the coming Plutonic storms that will demolish all that is infirm and toxic from the soul and from the world.
With the world in turmoil, with fear oozing from every mind, and with terror radiating from every brain, the bestial world misleaders can feel more comfortable. We all prefer to be in an ambiance that reflects our inner state.
Well, a world of chaos and upheaval, murder, mayhem, injustice, and brutality does reflect the inner psychological and emotional state of those we have set upon the thrones of the world. After all, one does not commonly find carrion crows or vultures seeking repast in a Japanese tea-garden. "The mind under the influence of the higher conscious state"
He is happy as well as great who needs neither to obey nor to command in order to be something - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Astrologically, the signs of rebellion are Scorpio and Aquarius. Scorpio is the eighth house of the twelve houses of the zodiac, and Aquarius is the eleventh house. There are many fascinating mathematical and numerological relationships between the numbers eight and eleven and there are, likewise, many interesting correspondences between Scorpio and Aquarius.
One of the fundamental correspondences involves the planet of rebellion, Uranus. Uranus is the planetary “ruler” of the sign of Aquarius and is “exalted” (of greatest power) in Scorpio.
“New Age” philosophy expounds the idea that we are gradually approaching the so-called “Age of Aquarius.” As I show in my work on astrology, we are indeed coming to the close of one great astrological cycle and we are about to enter another.
Along the way are other important mini-cycles that open and close and naturally there are the cycles of our own personal lives that are also major factors in the movement and changes of the celestial clock. However, this is not the place to explain the details of astrological prophecy or expound on the sundry notions regarding the “Age of Aquarius.”
I merely wish to underline the rebellious quality that will rise to prominence under Aquarian and Uranian energy, and attend the world of tomorrow. It is this Spirit of Rebellion and what may come of its action that is of primary interest to us.
We would rather forgive the evil proliferating all around us than the rebellion against it, which we mistake for the true evil - Arno Gruen (Betrayal of the Self)
Presently, as we write, the planet Uranus (ruler of Aquarius) is moving through (transiting) the last sign of the zodiac called Pisces. Like all signs of the zodiac Pisces has both positive and negative traits associated with it.
This conjunction of Uranus in Pisces provides the insightful and intuitive with a peek into the forthcoming Age of Aquarius. Those who have adroit “Pattern-Recognition” skills and who are “Symbolically-Literate” will perceive in today’s world subtle forecasts of what is to come in the future age.
If thou wilt know the invisible, open wide thine eyes on the visible - (Kabalistic Adage)
Aquarius and Uranus rule the spirit of youth that is akin to the Spirit of Rebellion. The coming of Uranus can be compared to a meeting between an extremely caffeinated and ticked-off Bruce Lee meeting an extremely hyper and histrionic Jackie Chan. As we can imagine, there won’t be much left of the furniture after they get through talking over their problems.
Uranus is the planetary ruler of the famous Fool card in the Tarot. The Fool represents the innocent, sensitive, vital mind that is ever receptive, unconditioned, mutable, and free.
He is the androgynous one who travels without a load of attachments and who allows neither fear nor memory to interfere with his mutable, omnidirectional journey of experience. He perfectly embodies the Taoist's Wei Wu Wei (accomplishment without action). To him the world always appears new, fresh, interesting and magical. This does not mean that the Fool does not also see the injustice and perversity that exists around him.
He sees all the suffering and sorrow and laments it deeply. His spirit is after all Plutonic and Uranian. His spirit is free and also deeply human but his solutions to problems are of a grass-roots variety. He despises complexity and prefers solutions that are ingenious yet simple and comprehensible.
The Plutonic-Uranian mind does not require debates, pie-charts, graphs, boardroom decisions or ten-year plans to cut through Gordian Knots or to move proverbial mountains. The Uranian does not need to take a poll of the opinions of others to know what he should believe or when and how to act.
Independence and individualism are not merely catch-phrases to him. He is suspicious when such terms are used to enslave rather than to liberate, when they proffer false security instead of true grounded integral sovereignty.
Essentially, the Uranian Fool is a proverbial Fifth-Columnist or Agent Provocateur, working to bring down the crumbling and oppressive edifices and “dark satanic mills” that incarcerate the spirit of man. He is a true servant of the Holy Spirit, even if he does not look like one.
do you know anything about a man going around playing a harmonica? He's someone you'd remember nstead of talking he plays and when he better play, he talks - Sergio Leone (Once Upon a Time in the West)
The Spirit of Rebellion and the return to Selfhood will be humankind’s salvation in the dark times that are approaching. We have already been feeling, seeing, and experiencing the subtle and not so subtle effects of Uranus and Pluto for some time now.
The “Hippy” era of the 1960s was a perfect expression of the lower and more chaotic Aquarian-Uranian archetypes. The “Punk” era of the 1970s was a good example of lower frequency Scorpionic-Plutonic archetypes and the sexual promiscuity of the 80s and 90s was also a patently lower-octave symptom.
We are still, however, to experience the higher purer manifestation of these archetypes although we will not have long to wait. The planet Pluto is presently about 24 degrees of the sign of Sagittarius and is on its way toward the first degrees of Capricorn.
Capricorn is the sign of the zodiac ruled by Saturn the planet/archetype of time, order, government and oppression. When Pluto enters into this sign we can certainly expect quite sudden and profound changes to the most fixed, toxic and calcified areas of our lives.
Furthermore, on its way toward the sign of Capricorn, Pluto will cross in front of the Galactic Meridian and pass in front of the center of the galaxy. Pluto's orbit of the zodiac takes approximately 250 years and as it comes back full circle to pass over and channel the energy of galactic center it enables all that is calcified and toxic to be exposed and removed. In the early part of 2007 the alignment will occur and the whole planet will feel the influences and ramifications.
The locus of galactic center is known to occultists as the "Black Sun," and is often depicted that way, as a black solar disk with 13 rays emitting from it. Bathed in the energy of the sacred central sun, all false and degenerate orders will suffer deconstruction.
The masters of the world order will not sit by and allow the Spirit of Rebellion to work its miracles in the hearts of men. As in the days of old they have many a counter-plan devised to maintain their hegemony. The rise of evangelism, oppressive laws, and conservative governments are evidence of this reaction to the liberating energies of Pluto and Uranus.
The nature of Pluto is similar to that of the Hindu god Shiva. Pluto usually begins by breaking down a structure, then creates a new one in its place. The entire cycle of death, destruction and renovation is accompanied by tremendous powers, for Pluto is not a mild or even very subtle planetary influence. It brings decay at one level or another.
It also rules the death and regeneration of the self, as old aspects of your life pass away. Pluto does not represent death in the literal sense, instead it refers to a metaphorical death, something that ceases to be - Robert Hand (Planets in Transit)
In the intermediate years we will do well to educate ourselves as to how the architects of ruin, within the religious and political hierarchies, are likely to react to this influx of liberating energy.
These well-established bastions of repression and oppression are, after all, not in the habit of just rolling out of the way and giving up the ghost and we can expect them to willfully react in concert to overcome the new paradigm and new modality of expression that seeks to breach their walls and invade their territory, so to speak.
As we can see from an astrological study of the 1960s and '70s, the Saturnian forces of law, order, and oppression do not hesitate to retaliate and quell the Spirit of Rebellion. The agents of Saturnian, Solar and Martian energy (the governments, educational edifices, and official religions, etc) do know, however, that there are many long-term benefits to be gained from permitting short-term “angst-release” from the “Under-Classes” they manipulate and control.
This is why there have been, in the past, certain high-profile bouts of rebellion and fleeting chaotic flickers of anarchy from the disenchanted and malcontented within society. As ex-rebels James Simon Kunen (Columbia University Activist) and Jerry Kirk (Black Panthers) will be only too happy to inform us, there are two main forms of rebellion - the soft and the hard.
There is the “designer” or “chic” version that serves in the long run merely to reinforce the status quo. Then there is the authentic and radical form that attempts to, and occasionally succeeds in, countering and demolishing the rotten status quo.
The masses of discontented and inwardly discomfited who consider themselves as being “against the system” (and this includes the majority of pseudo-Communists, pseudo-Anarchists, and so on) are usually of the first variety and are, therefore, easily duped and led. More often than not these soft-rebels are also highly duplicitous types, narcissistic and devious, desiring only to seize the reigns of power for themselves.
After all, how many Stalins, Castros, Maos, and Mugabes of the world begin as fierce, zealous “opponents” of the status quo only to later become the fiercest and most zealous of oppressors? As William Blake wrote: "the fist that crushes the tyrants head becomes a tyrant in the tyrant’s stead." So, although the masters of the game may occasionally permit this soft designer-rebelliousness, they are ever vigilant against the true hard form should it ever threaten to appear.
They are dangerous because there are so many of them. It is one thing to have a few nuts or dissidents. They can be dealt with, justly or otherwise, so that they do not pose a danger to the system. It is quite another situation when you have a true movement - millions of citizens believing something, particularly when the movement is made up of society’s average, successful citizens - William Colby (Late Director of CIA)
Where a majority are united by a common sentiment, and have an opportunity, the rights of the minor party become insecure. In a republican government the majority, if united, have always an opportunity.
The only remedy is to enlarge the sphere" (that is, unite all the States under a federal government) "and thereby divide the community into so great a number of interests and parties that, in the first place, a majority will not be likely, at the same moment, to have a common interest separate from that of the whole, or of the minority; and, in the second place, that, in case they should have such an interest, they may not be so apt to unite in the pursuit of it - President James Madison (Elliot's Debates, Vol. 5)
That spirit of constructive resistance and rebellion was present in Mikhail Bakunin, William Blake, William Wallace, and Che Guevara, and in the modern comedians Bill Hicks and Lenny Bruce. It was found in Giordano Bruno and Soren Kierkegaard, in Ezra Pound, Ayn Rand, Wilhelm Reich and Jiddu Krishnamurti.
It is the holy daemon about to possess many people in the world, many of whom would not, at this moment, consider themselves to be rebels with any cause. There are many sleeping heretics in the world and they are soon to be awakened.
However, there are certain rules that come with the package and certain laws that the rational rebel must acknowledge and master. Authentic rebels know that it is pointless and hypocritical to strive against external tyranny unless one has first combated their own inner repressive instincts and drives.
The true rebel is not merely a rager against the machine or a campus malcontent. He is a student of oppression, repression, and slavery. He allows the forces he despises and opposes to be his best tutors and he observes these forces closely, in order to become minutely aware of their nature and behavior.
He extrapolates and examines the anatomy of tyranny and comes to know cruelty, sadism, violence, injustice, and destruction intimately. He is a keen OBSERVER, observership is the first requisite for understanding.
The rebels who are going to matter and who will possess the rational power to affect proactive change are those who become “walking encyclopedias” of evil. There is not a nuance of it that eludes them. Having walked through Hades, to emerge again, the Servant of Truth is supremely qualified to heal and revive the lost and ignorant people of the world.
His power lies in his healthy attitude to the challenges of life and in his Spirit of Rebellion and Contradiction. His authority is a result of his psychological and attitudinal freedom, for it is this inner condition that exalts a man - even one whose body and mind is bound in chains
Be assured that the act of MEDITATION is the only science that can truly liberate the human soul from the bondage of the MATRIX we live in, MEDITATION was and is the SECRET key, it is the the lost word, the holy grail, the pearl of great price, the inner oracle that speaks, it is the SECRET place. "I make darkness, my secret place" God of the Bible.
The oracle at Delphi "Man know THYSELF"
This is NOT possible without the LOST art of MEDITATION.
From: the Satoriallme BLOG
The Secret Societies of old would have their initiations inside of a Labyrinth with each turn producing more of the Mystery to the adept. The Minotaur was the sacrificial twin in the middle. It's the part of yourself, a composite creature, that you leave dead behind to march out in to the world born again.
The lighting Bolt as a representation of the Lucifer and his fall to the material world. He Zig Zags his way across every sphere. I do remember a passage in the Bible with Jesus saying he saw Lucifer fall from heaven like a Lightning Bolt
The snake however is the one who climbs back to the top to find the crown. I see this as the rising of the Divine Snake or Jesus out of the material. You could see as William Blake hints, that Jesus and Lucifer are twins. And of course reside in us. The initiate of the Secret Society would sacrifice the Jesus and let lose the inner light of Satan. We then would be told that we are born as Lucifer and die (or live) as Jesus, Whatever.
The Rose Crucian symbolism of the snake on the cross hints at this. I see this as another Axis Mundi or the World Axis or the Axis of Knowledge. This is the contact spot between this world and the unreal cartoon world or OZ, also known as other world, the land of the dead, or the land of forgotten knowledge. It is often seen as a cross and guarded by a snake.
The caduceus is a product of this and then you Have Jeremy Narby and his theory of the Axis being the hallucinogenic communication with DNA. DNA could very well be our link with the land of the dead. Or it could be the way our bodies communicates with the DNA in every thing living around us. Sort of like a antennae with the unseen OZ world around us. The Junk DNA works as a crystal that picks up Electro Magnetic frequencies and process information, spawning the assimilation of knowledge.
To deny that there is a source of knowledge out side of one self is to deny history. Some of the greatest minds of the human race have claimed to have communication to a disembodied voice that had knowledge greater than a imaginatied voice from their sub consciousness. Among the people who experienced this would be Plato, Carlos Castaneda, Terrance Mckenna, Phillip K Dick, Robert Anton Wilson, and Jake Kotze.
It can also be said that dreams and/or Peruvian Shaman trips also connect you to this invisible hive of knowledge, like a Wi Fi
The SECRET of meditation lies in NON desire, you must not not desire anything, the very act of desire nullifies the thing itself.
This is a paradox of sorts, but must be understood that desire or will to want is an act of the EGO, the ego must completely dissolve before one's lower self can merge with the higher self. While in meditation just be there, have no desire for an outcome, and then in the twinkling of an eye it can happen.
Their are also other secrets to the meditative process, like keeping the tongue at the roof of the mouth, this is very important for completing the electrical circuit.
Other secrets are taught in the kabala and the TAO, like visualizing energy moving up the spine, and keeping your focus on the pineal gland.
And stop internal Chitta chatter, still the mind, by the absolution of thought.
"I make darkness my secret place" God

PLUTO AND CHARON
Charon, the dark stranger of the River Styx
WHO WAS HE ?
Charon, pronounced KAIR uhn or pronounced KAY rohn, was the ragged old boatman of the Underworld in Greek mythology. He was the son of Erebus (darkness) and Nyx (night).
Charon ferried the shades (spirits) of the dead across the Styx or other rivers of the Underworld. The ancient Greeks buried their dead with a silver coin in their mouth as payment to Charon for this trip.
Those who did not receive proper funeral rites were forced to wander along the riverbank for 100 years before obtaining passage from Charon.
Pluto is the planet of the dead.
The reason is that it becomes the most distant planet and the last one before the underworld.
I struggle to the top of Pluto and then look down and there is Paradise.
THE TWO OF THEM
Pluto has a small grayish satellite orbiting around it. It is called Charon.
Pluto then is the gate to the underworld. And one must be ferried by Charon to reach this place of the Gods.
One must have a silver coin in ones mouth at burial.
Jesus was betrayed for 30 pieces of silver.
The number 30 is the number of the God Sin.
Sin is the moon God. The moon represents the emotions because it reflects what is shone on it. Silver is the human mind.
Thus the silver coin in the mouth indicates that the mind has been demonstrated to have been renewed by the words that were spoken before the body died.
THE INTRODUCTION OF HADES
Hades, pronounced HAY deez, was the god of the dead in Greek mythology. He ruled the kingdom of the dead, which had the same name.
The ancient Romans preserved without change almost all the myths about Hades and his kingdom, but they called the god Pluto.
Hades was the son of Cronus and Rhea, and the older brother of Zeus, the king of the gods. In the Bible he is Lucifer. In spite of Hades' importance to the Greeks, they did not devote any rituals to him. Few myths involve Hades directly.
The kingdom of Hades was a neutral region reserved for the souls of people who deserved neither punishment nor reward upon death. The Greeks believed that Hades was drab and dull, but not necessarily painful.
The souls of those who had led virtuous lives dwelled happily in Elysium. The souls of those who had sinned greatly went to Tartarus, a land far below the earth.
The Greeks believed Hades was beneath the earth. It had five rivers the Acheron, the Kokytos, the Lethe, the Phlegethon, and the Styx. Each served as a boundary between the land of the living and the land of the dead.
THE RIVER STYX
The Styx was the best-known river in Hades.
To cross it, a soul had to be ferried by Charon, a boatman.
He demanded payment, so the Greeks placed coins in the mouths of their dead before burying them. Hades' house stood on the shore of the Styx.
Cerberus, a monstrous three-headed dog, guarded the house.
After crossing the river, each soul was assigned to its eternal home by one of three judges Aeacus, Minos, or Rhadamanthys.
Those guilty of serious offenses were tormented by goddesses called Furies or Erinyes.
Styx, pronounced stihks, was a gloomy river of the underworld in Greek and Roman mythology. Styx is a Greek word meaning hateful.
The boatman Charon was often described as ferrying the souls of the dead across the Styx.
The gods took their most sacred oaths by the name of the Styx. If they broke such an oath, they were punished by spending nine years in Tartarus, a deep pit in the underworld.
The Styx supposedly began as an actual waterfall in the region of ancient Greece called Arcadia. Its waters, which were said to be poisonous, plunged down a steep gorge to the underworld.
CHARON; ELYSIUM; HADES; TARTARUS.
MARCH 15 1999
Now if this is connected to Pluto as most seem to think
The Romans connected Pluto to Hades. The appearance of Pluto once again as a gate to the beyond took place on March 15 1999.
Pluto, pronounced PLOO toh, is usually the most distant planet from the sun.
Pluto and Neptune are the only planets that cannot be seen without a telescope. Astronomers "discovered" both these planets by using mathematics.
Pluto is about 39 times as far from the sun as Earth is. Pluto travels around the sun in an elliptical (oval-shaped) orbit. At some point in its orbit, it comes closer to the sun than Neptune, usually the second farthest planet.
It stays inside Neptune's orbit for about 20 earth-years. This event occurs every 248 earth-years, which is about the same number of earth-years it takes Pluto to travel once around the sun.
Pluto entered Neptune's orbit on Jan. 23, 1979, and remained there until March 15, 1999.
So March 15 1999, Pluto assumed its position as the gateway to the netherworld.
Not Elysium which is the same as the Great White Lodge of which I have spoken and where Samael will direct you.
But if one does not have the silver coin in his mouth at death, he will wander on the dark shore. If one has the silver coin he will be ferried. Those who have been enlightened through Pegasus will go on to the lodge or Elysium. Others wills cross Styx to the house of Hades.
Please keep in mind this is all metaphysical, symbolic language.
These are all simply symbols to allow you to understand.
Pegasus has already been accounted for. In the universe by the planetary discoveries and inside of you at the hippocampus. Supernova 1987a as Pineal. Fornax as Fornix.
The temple as the brain, Dura Mater, Pia Mater, and Arachnoid.
Pluto opened the gate to the other realms known as the netherworld March 15 1999. And Charon now beckons you.
Do you want to cross.
Do you have the silver coin for your fare?
It is not to be thought of as the Hell of the Christians.
It is the place where wisdom can be found. You may go into Hades and receive wisdom but to retrace the path to come up to the sweet air of heaven. That is a labor.
THE SEARCH THROUGH THE FOREST
There is a very strange story in Greek mythology connected with all of this. The initiate must struggle through the dark forest to find the River Styx and the strange gray boatman Charon.
The forest is deep and dark. It represents meditation and the struggle to avoid the howling and creeping thoughts of the mind which distract us and frighten us from our goal.
We must find the golden bough because Charon will not allow us into the boat unless we have the the golden bough.
Before you can get to Hades or to the place of the next world where wisdom will be given, you must find a golden bough growing in the forest on a tree. Only with this in hand will you be admitted to the next world.
The golden bough is the Pineal on fire.
It is also the mythological Golden Fleece.
The tree is your body.
Going into the body is going into the great wilderness of trees. It is the place of the tree of life and the tree of knowledge of Genesis. It seems impossible to find anything.
I seek and sit in the darkness of the inner forest and find nothing.
But suddenly in the dark forest will come two doves. The birds of Venus.
The higher place of love. They fly slowly within you and you follow them.
Sometimes the experience is so brief. Just a glimpse.
Suddenly you come to Lake Avernus, a dark foul smelling sheet of water where there is a cavern where the road leads to the deeper place.
That foul smelling water is the truth which is polluted by the systems of the world.
But right there , where all seemed so low, and all seemed to be lost, the doves suddenly soared up to a tree where on a bough was a bright yellow glean. It is the golden bough within you.
Now you can move across the river to the other side to the place of wisdom and understanding.
THE OLD MAN AND THE DARK WATER
The seekers (you and me) find ourselves on a road wrapped in shadows through which we can see frightful forms on the other side. disease, care, hunger, terror, fear.
Our thoughts were dancing against the moons light. Will we cross .
Can we cross or will we turn back?
Finally we pass through all of the howling things dancing and screaming and we find ourselves unmolested, unhurt. The fear did not touch us because it was only fear.
And we finally reach a place where an old man was rowing a boat in the dark water. A short gray man with a short cloak.
As he pushes his pole in the dark water,. Charon ignores the cries of those along the shore begging to go across. They do not know about the golden bough.
We stare in wonder at Charon in his skiff.
There are two dark rivers that intersect here.
One of the rivers is called Cocytus, the other Acheron.
Now Charon in his boat with the mist curling about him on the dark water poles his skiff and stares at you. He raises his hand and beckons you to stop.
But then he sees the golden bough.
Charon allows you into his skiff. You sit quietly.
Cerberus the three headed dog is barking in the front yard of Hades. You have to appease him with a cake. This is the degree of compromise that we all offer the system.
We live in it and take part in much of its nonsense.
But the dog keeps quiet.
We pass the solemn place where Minos, Europas son (moon) was passing sentence on some falling souls. (More fear within us). We pass the fields of mourning where our unhappiness dwells.
At last in our dark meditation Charon poles the dark water and we reach a division in the river.
From the left come horrible sounds, groans and savage cries.
We stare in terror at the left side.
FINALLY ELYSIUM, WE HAVE FOUND IT !
In spite of our fear we held tight to the golden bough. Charon pushed the skiff to the right and the quiet dark waters touched its side.
Suddenly the sky brightened. We came to a field of beautiful green, and color and trees and waterfalls of bright blue.
The Elysian fields.
Here we found those who know. Those who took the golden bough and Charon ferried to this wonder.
We encountered all of those we knew and know again.
But to return we must pause at the stream of Lethe.
The river of forgetfulness. No one can return here until you drink of that water.
You see people who will be your relatives, fathers, mothers, sons and daughters. All drinking forgetfulness before their time to come upward.
All memory of the former times is gone. All of us then together prepare to leave.
Calmly knowing that we will not know each other when we get to the other side.
A few at a time enter the skiff and Charon smiles a broken toothy grin.
1999 THE YEAR OF PLUTO AND CHARON
The meditation that you take when you enter deep within yourself takes you to Elysian when you have the golden bough which is the lighted pineal.
The golden bough or lighted pineal is now Supernova.
Eridanus is the river, and Charon waited at Pluto until March 15 1999.
Don't you remember your last trip. Of course not because you drank of Lethe.
Dont' you remember the experience in your last meditation when you separated from your thoughts. You were lost in the deep. Of course not. For you drank of Lethe.
All of these things are waiting for such a short time. Pluto at the gate of Hades. Charon the ferry boatmen. Elysia. Lethe.
The Golden Bough which is Supernova takes you to Eridanus the river and then to Fornax which is the furnace lighting and bringing forth the light of Elysium to those who have the bough within them.
The white horse Pegasus (hippocampus) raising itself in preparation for the one who sends forth the lightening. The enlightenment from the hippocampus, from Pegasus.
All of the planets and constellations waiting and in preparation and Charon grins.
PLUTO AND HADES, THE SAME ?
The first thing I want to do is respond to a very good question that was asked of me.
If you recall when we recounted the story of Charon the ferryman who takes you in the boat across the river Styx to Hades, we stated that Hades is the Planet Pluto.
The doorway to the next world. The last planet in line. ( March 15 1999).
Interestingly Charon is a small gray man who wears a short cloak.
Orbiting Pluto is a small satellite which is gray in color and is called Charon.
A person asked a very important question. How could Hades be connected to Pluto when the planet Pluto was not discovered until quite recently and the story of Hades is very ancient.
I want to address that question now.
In ancient Greece, the God Hades which means the unseen was also known as Pluto or Pluton, (the rich.) So Pluto was another name in Greek mythology for Hades.
The planet was discovered in 1930 by Clyde Tombaugh.
It was named Pluto and does when it achieves the most distant orbit become the gateway to the next world as is Hades.
In 1978 two astronomers James Christy and Robert Harrington discovered the one satellite that orbits Pluto. A small gray satellite that they named Charon.
Now think of this.
Hades is Pluto in Greek mythology and Charon is the small gray boatman of Hades or Pluto.
Somehow the planet that is the doorway to the next world was named Pluto and the small gray satellite next to it was named Charon. It all came together just as it was ordained in the Greek myths.
This makes it so more apparent that these myths were written by those who know of astronomical things long before they had been discovered by people on earth.
This again is a good reason for us to look closely at Supernova 1987a and the Harmony of Apollo.
If the Greeks knew of the Planet Pluto and the gray satellite Charon, does not the geometric pattern called the Harmony of Apollo indicate that they also knew of the existence of Supernova 1987a thousands of years before we observed it.
The single eye that will fill the body with light.
RELIGION HAS LULLED US TO SLEEP
We have broken the glass ceiling and reached deep inside to grab what we can of the origin of life and its implications. Not only its implications, and not only its origin, but its reason.
Why is there such a thing. What in the world is it. How is it a part of the universe?
Religion has been content to lull us to sleep with hymns, and colorful stories much of which would be more at home in Disneyland.
Talking snakes, talking donkeys, fish that swallow people and carry them around in their stomach for 3 days. The Sun in the sky that stands still, virgins having babies (not too Disney there of course).
But in all of this we have our heads focused to the preacher, to the priest.
We are actually warned not to look to the universe which is Gods cathedral. We are warned not to try to consider that as part of the great purpose. We are warned to stay away from our inner selves.
Even though Jesus begs us to seek within, they warn us to stay without and listen to them.
And so we who are so intelligent in the things that have been provided to us in culture and science by the pagans, have fallen into a total lethargic state of non interest in the actual reason and meaning of life via the superstitions of the religious.
ELECTRONS AND PHOTONS
Your body and your mind were created through a chromosonal interchange during copulation between your mother and father.
You look and act according to the genetic make up of them and those of your ancestors who came before you.
You are totally a product of the earth.
But inside of you there is electron and photon activity which nested in your body when you were a fetus. They have come to you from above. They are the aspects of light that the Bible speaks of.
That is the part of you that is only nesting in this body and will leave when this body can no longer support the light. Not unlike a light bulb.
This part of you is called spirit but it is not spirit.
It is electron , photon. It is part of the universe.
It came to earth from the universe.
This is your true identity and now you can begin to move to the center and reattach to your true mother and father.
In the East Atma means father-UM means mother. Atum-Atom Mother and father.
This part of you cannot remain unattached from the movement of the celestial bodies. It yearns to once again be part of them. It calls out as ET did in the movie, Home Home.
The lower part of you is pulled by religion to listen to them. They who have no idea of these deep things.
But that light within you which is yearning to be reunited with the family of light pulls you to the stars and to the planets.
THE COSMIC REVOLUTION
Now the celestial events are moving at a rapid rate and they are stimulating that which is you, the inner light, and the vibration is being felt deeply by each of us who are willing to move to the center.
Things are being changed, a revolution is at hand. Those celestial bodies which are known to turn things upside down are now front and center.
And so we see how strangely familiar is the effects of Pluto consistent with Uranus and indeed Aquarius, and this great adventure is moving itself into place in the heaven's with Pluto and Charon having taken their place as the doorway to the next world on March 15 1999.
And this week the scientists and astronomers on TV ,and radio ,and CNN, and all the stations ,brought all of us to look and again prepare for the Ides of March by announcing to the world that the scientific community is considering downgrading Pluto from a planet to something else.
They have not spoken of Pluto in years, but now they call our attention to the doorway to the next world ready to take its appointed place.
GOD AND YOU ARE LIGHT
What is this all about in suggesting that these signs are so important. The movement of planets and their positioning is so important. They are the angles of light that will impact upon the world to correct the course.
To correct the inherent defect.
How is this summed up for all of us to see in the Bible.
1 John1:5 This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.
Don’t you see why considering electro magnetism and the flow of angles of light upon the earth is so important. God. The question of God that you have followed all of your life is revealed to you now.
God is light.
In other words, the connection between you and what you call God is via light, angles of light from above. Electro magnetism from the universe.
The Bible, written by the ancient Greeks who gave us so much in astronomy and an understanding of the universe, tells you that God is light. The very light that comes streaming down upon the earth at the proper time, at the proper angle, to correct defects. To heal in other words.
To change the course of behavior, to give peace and new life.
This light is God.
1 Peter2:9 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should show forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light:
Calling you out of darkness into his marvelous light means pulling you out of deep attachment to the left side of the carnal mind to the center through the Pineal, and then to the right side where dwells inside of you the Kingdom of Light.
Now what draws you.
I shared with you last week. Your bodies are those of the earth, Of your mother and father.
A fetus developed in your mothers womb and you were nowhere in sight.
Then the light came on an angle from above and entered the fetus.
It became you, light and body.
The body to interact upon the earth. The light to move to the center and by collapsing the wave to reattach to the mother light. The Bible itself addresses this.
1 Thessalonians5:5 Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness
Don’t you see. Your bodies are children of your parents and your family tree.
But you, the you that I am talking to now, are a child of light. You were not born here on the planet earth in some hospital. You were born of light at a distant place.
As it says, you are all children of light.
Please understand this.
By moving in meditation to the center at the Pineal you again make direct line contact with mother as I have told you. This is how you rejoin your family.
Colossians1:12 Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light
Your inheritance is in light. Electro magnetism that flows down to the earth.
You must move to that place of light. How important is this understanding since Pluto made its move.
Ephesians5:8 For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light.
Not as children of your parents, but children of the light.
So then why have we not followed this light through meditation. Why have we had church and religion warn us not to enter within ourselves and go into meditation.
Warned that if we go within ourselves we will open ourselves to demons.
All of this was taught to us by religion, why?
John3:19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
THE STRANGE SAMAEL
That light has come into the world . Where did it come from. How has it come.
It has come from above as an angle of light but it has been rejected by the teachings of religion and we have all been deprived of receiving it until now.
But now Aquarius is here, Uranus is here, Supernova is here, Fornax is here and yes Pluto and Charon are here and it is time to walk into the light.
The lights are positioning themselves to come for you. Your family is preparing for your return. Angles of light are coming down as a giant hand reaching for you.
Now we will begin to go where we have not gone before simply because of the need to be ready. The initiation is in the understanding, the enlightenment. To become aware.
In the ancient text that go back to Sumeria there is the writings of one called Enlil Jehovah and his brother Enki.
There is a very interesting ancient story about Enki.
He knew that men who took of the Tree of Knowledge, could become like Gods. The tree of knowledge we understand to be the human body, and the fruit of the tree being the Pineal.
This is supported by Genesis, or more likely set the stage for the story in Genesis. You remember when in the myth Adam and Eve ate of the tree of knowledge, what was the result?
Genesis 3:22 And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:
So just as Enki said in that ancient document , taking from the Tree of Knowledge brings one to a point of enlightenment. This is the movement of electrical energy up the spine and then a coming together of that electrical energy with magnetism that comes down from above.
Enki was the one who was the guardian of the Tree of Knowledge.
He also had another name.
They called him Samael.
Samael as you know is as I told you long ago, the one who will direct you either to the left or right, depending on your knowledge of the code of IEOU which consists of the symbol of 8, Azozeo, and 4555.
You will see in the Books of IEOU that once you name Azozeo and 4555, and seal yourself with the seal of 8, you will meet Samael.
Do not worry about Chochochoucha. (Cho Cho Cho ucha)
Rest with that as a murmuring beyond your mind and language.
Consider Samael or Enki.
You have never heard a statement from Samael.
But from ancient Sumeria you will now hear his words.
Nothing is obtained by wanting. And nothing is achieved by relinquishing responsibility to a higher authority. Belief is the act of believing ,for to be alive is to believe ,and will is the ultimate medium of the self.
There is an ancient writing from Samael himself telling you that you must be true to yourself.
You simply cannot desire something or an improvement in your existence. You must follow that light and phenomena within you. You must not follow a group which actually will cause you to give up your self.
Samael warns you not to do that.
Now Samael has a female counterpart. As in all aspects of life.
Samaels counterpart was the death goddess, queen of the mysterious land of the Hyperboreans. Her name was Samothea.
Now what is important about this.
This all wise lady instructed a person in the arts, astronomy, and science. Her student in the mystical place beyond the veil was Pythagoras.
So what Pythagoras learned, he learned from the strange Samothea.
The feminine side of Samael.
Let me introduce you to another word. Anunnaki.
Anunnaki is the Star Fire.
This actually is the the Pineal gland or Tree of Knowledge and Annunaki would now also be Supernova 1987a.
Keep in mind we are way back into Sumerian mythology which predates Greek.
The Annunaki star fire was also a flower or cup bearer which was the transmitter of the rich food of the matrix.
In other words this is the womb from which flows the nectar that is the chrism or anointing oil.
Annunaki in this capacity was also called, the Rose of Sharon.
In ancient Sumerian Sha means orbit, Ra and On relate to light.
The city of On was also known as Heliopilis which was the City of Light and of course Ra is the Sun god.
So interestingly Sharon would mean the orbiting or circling light.
THE ROSE OF CHARON?
Of course I am sure you are ahead of me as we look to the Idea of March being March 15th of 1999 when Pluto ascended to the farthest point from the Sun as the doorway to the next world.
Accompanied by the gray satellite orbiting Pluto. Known in the Greek myth as the gray boatman who would ferry you across the Styx on the way to Elysium. His name is Charon.
So we have if not Sha, we have Cha and On. The orbit of the great light.
So the beauty or rose of orbiting light bears this resemblance to Charon.
In the Bible of course, the Messianic Bride speaks. This would be the advent of cosmic consciousness. Christ consciousness. And what sign do we see related.
Song-of-Solomon 2:1 I am the rose of Sharon, and the lily of the valley.
So this is the coming of cosmic consciousness.
This coming of light certainly can ride on the wings of a great cosmic sign.
After all in the Bible it says on the very first page. Let there be lights in the heavens and let them be for signs. And what great sign took its place on March 15th 1999 Charon.
And Charon is the satellite circling Pluto or Hades, the underworld, the sign of darkness.
Anunnaki of Sumeria was the Pineal. The Pineal secretes melatonin. The word melatonin comes from the Greek melos which means black, and tosos which means labor.
Melatonin actually means night worker.
Melatonin is the Hormone of Darkness.
Charon ferries us across the river to the House of Darkness being Hades or Pluto the distant dark planet.
There is a very interesting resemblance, Sharon, Rose of Sharon, Meaning orbit of light and Charon. Taking us across the river past Hades or Pluto to Elysium.
And right in the middle of it , will be Samael.
THE ELUSIAN MYSTERIES
Now we get to considering Pluto.
If indeed we feel confident that the myth correctly identified Pluto and Charon for us as was borne out in the discoveries of Pluto in 1930 and Charon in 1978.
We then must also consider carefully what is said about Pluto. We know that Pluto falls in perfectly with Aquarius as a heavy impact on the mind, and with Uranus in that it turns things upside down. It causes confusion and upheaval.
That is astrology, but what about the myth.
If the myth was correct in painting a portrait of Pluto and Charon that we only recently discovered, should not we also look carefully to the myth surrounding Pluto to determine if possibly it might provide us with some inkling as to what to expect?
In order to understand what may be expected through Pluto one would have to become a little familiar with what are called “ The Elusian Mysteries” of ancient Greece.
Now please keep in mind. It is not Pluto that causes the change any more then Uranus.
The point being made is that when Pluto, is here and Uranus is here, and Supernova is here , etc. then the vibrations from above become right to influence great change in the human mind.
The Elusian mysteries were actually in existence about 1400 years before the Biblical account of Jesus. They centered in the town of Eleusis.
These mysteries focused on interpretations of Natures most precious secrets. The Elusian mysteries were dramatized during different parts of the year. They were split into two groups.
One was the Lesser Mysteries and the other was the Greater Mysteries.
THE WORLD OF THE INVISIBLE
In order to understand the mysteries one had to be familiar with Greek mythology, which the Elusians interpreted esoterically. In other words in the world of the invisible.
What we used to call spiritual but what we now know to be the realm of the sub atomic.
Now what were they about.
They were about the very things I have been speaking to you about. You are a body that belongs to your family. That is created here, exists here, dies here and decomposes here. But you entered that body from above as an angle of light.
That part is the part that is pulling you back to the center to the point of the Pineal so you may realign yourself with mother light.
The Elusian Mysteries were totally concerned with exactly what we have discussed. Let me look at their reasoning.
Their concern was with the unpurified soul invested with an earthy body and enveloped in a material and physical nature. Thus as an angle of light you enter and nested deep within the brain. You animate the body but you are enveloped in a material and physical nature.
So as we clear the mist surrounding the Elusian mysteries we find the story of Pluto.
Can we then use this story to judge what we may expect. These are the mysteries. The deepest mysteries, and they are about you and they are the very essence of the Bible.
1 Corinthians 2:7 But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom which God ordained before the world unto our glory:
THE STORY FROM THE UNDERWORLD
The mystery of Pluto contained in the Elusian Mysteries is that of the abduction of Persephone by Pluto the lord of the underworld also known as Hades.
Persephone is picking flowers and the ground opens up. Suddenly the Lord of Death, Pluto appears in a chariot and scoops up Persephone and kicking and screaming carries her off to his underworld palace.
That would omen for us a coming of a time when those who are going about the mundane (symbolized by picking flowers), suddenly find their spirit or inner nature (symbolized by Persephone) suddenly crashing in confusion and delusion.
Many people because of a unique alignment that time of year experience this on a more gentle basis around Christmas time. It has nothing to do with Christmas spirit.
It has to do with the alignment at that time.
In this story, the soul is personified by Persephone.
Now what is the soul.
No doctor can find a soul because it is an invisible sub atomic realm of light that rises to the point of the Pineal.
Your true home is Persephones true home in the higher realms. Your true home is free from the bondage of material concepts, yet here you are trapped within that which is material.
The Elusian mysteries portray your human or physical nature as a tomb, a false and impermanent thing, the source of all sorrow and suffering.
Plato describes the body as the sepulcher.
This is very important when we consider Supernova 1987a and its direct fire line to Fornax. And the Pineal Gland of the brain and its direct line to Fornix. A sepulcher is a vault like tomb.
Fornix means sepulcher and furnace.
FIRE IN THE SKY AND THE MIND
So the fire from the Pineal in the brain moves along stria pinealis to the fornix which opens the vault or sepulcher and we have resurrection.
In the sky, fire from Supernova 1987a moves to Fornax and we have the same result on a cosmic level.
The Elusian Mysteries explained the nature of the human problem. The agony of the soul, or of you. You are trapped inside of that head.
You are surrounded by everything made by your family.
You have always been unable to express yourself as the individual light that you are because you have accepted the limitations and illusions of the human environment.
What the Elusian mysteries taught is that it is totally up to you.
You are no better off in this body or out of the body if you have not found that center path to put you back into contact with mother.
You must overcome the desire to be a part of this system instead of being a part of the system of light. The Elusian mysteries state that you will carry with you into the invisible world those same desires that you cannot gratify here.
Remember Jacob in the Bible.
He struggled with a man. His thigh was put out which means he overcame the desire of the physical and with that he became IS RA EL.
Please understand this elimination of desire has nothing to do with wanting money, or a house, or a car, or fun or a vacation. It does not mean that when it talks about desire.
It is talking about the desire to be part of them.
To be afraid to step out of line because of them. To be afraid to think in terms of light and cosmos because of them.
There is this need or desire to remain a part of the cult, the family, the tradition, and until you are ready to shut down everything that they believe and instead find that light you are carried down into the depths by Pluto or Hades and you feel like hell.
THE PLUTONIC PERSONALITY
The Plutonic personality is the personality that ties its spiritual nature to the habits, and viewpoints of the cults and systems of the world.
I am telling you now that Pluto is ready to break out of the ground and carry those who are asleep to his lower kingdom. That means a collapse of many of the things that we have cherished and held on to.
A cleansing is coming upon the earth (YOU).
The room must be cleaned out but that is not good news for the dirt.
To the Elusian mysteries birth into the physical world, entrance into the fetus in your mothers womb, was entering into the tomb into the world of the dead.
And the only true birth was that of the spiritual light within rising out of the womb of your own fleshy nature.
In other words you must be born again. Born of the light.
1 Peter2:9 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should show forth the praises o him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.
When one is ruled by Pluto that person is ruled by the dead.
That is the problem that comes down upon the heads of people now as Pluto and Charon come into position that will herald in the dawning of the light that will foster this tremendous change of consciousness.
The Elusian mysteries said that.
The living are ruled by the dead.
This is what they meant.
It means the majority of people are not ruled by their living spirits but by their senseless and dead animal personalities. That is the gross problem. The light within, which is the true you has been ruled all of your life by Pluto.
Now is the time when the universe will feel Plutos power, the Power of Uranus, the power of Aquarius, for you to come up into the light.
I might tell you something you may find interesting.
We have discussed when the angle of light comes into the fetus. It appears that the pineal gland forms in the 3rd month, at that point the light can collapse as a particle and find its way to the nest.
The Elusian mysteries believe that it was at midnight when the invisible worlds were closest to the earthly sphere and that souls coming into material existence slipped in during the midnight hour.
Now those of you who sit and listen to me.
Some week after week.
My greatest desire is that you have followed the twisting pathway upward out of the abyss of your earthly dungeon called your body.
The Elusians talked about you.
After following the twisting and turning passageways toward the light, one finally received the honorary title of Mystes from which comes the word Mystic.
This means one who saw through a veil. The vision was clouded but the promise was that the veil would be torn away in a higher realm of consciousness.
1 Corinthians13:12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.
You shall know in light as you are known in light.
Pluto is coming for you, if you are in your meditations regularly, this energy will uplift you, if not, then you be pulled down to the underworld of Hades, Sheol just like Persephone.
What knowest thou of truth young friend? What image do you see?
Reflections of the lesser light can never set you free. The eyes you use are illusion’s tool, and cannot show the truth.
But when you look through just the eye you will transcend your youth.
The first effulgence which hath dawned from the horizon of the Mother Book is that man should know his own self and recognize that which leadeth unto loftiness or lowliness, glory or abasement."
Tablets of Baha'u'llah, p. 34)
Easily seen are others' faults, hard indeed to see are one's own. Like chaff one winnows others' faults, but one's own one hides, as a crafty fowler conceals himself by camouflage.
From the mind is one's character derived; controlled by mind, made by mind. Mind is the source either of bliss or of corruption. By oneself is evil done; by oneself one suffers; by oneself is evil avoided; by oneself one is purified. Purity and impurity belong to oneself, no one can purify another. You yourself must make the effort.
Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother's eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? How can you say to your brother, 'Brother, let me take the speck out of your eye,' when you yourself fail to see the plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother's eye.
When you have gotten your own life straightened out, things will go well without your giving orders. But if your own life isn't straightened out, even if you give orders, no one will follow them.
One's own self conquered is better than all other people; not even a god, a Gandharva, not Mara with Brahman could change into defeat the victory of a man who has vanquished himself, and always lives under restraint.
Chapter 8 verses 104-105
Translated by F. Max Muller
A Hasidic rebbe by the name of Zusha used to say,' When I die and come before the heavenly court, if they ask me, 'Zusha, why were you not as great as Abraham?' I will not be afraid. I will say that I was not born with Abraham's intellectual capabilities. And if they ask me, 'Zusha why were you not like Moses?'
I will say that I did not have his leadership skills. But when they ask me 'Zusha why were you not Zusha?' For that I will have no answer.
Judaism'Jewish Wisdom' by Rabbi Joseph Telushkin,1994
They who quarrel with others, instead of quarreling with their own hearts, waste their lives.
He who knows other men is discerning; he who knows himself is intelligent.
