Astrology is a science in itself and contains an illuminating body of knowledge. It taught me many things, and I am greatly indebted to it. Geophysical evidence reveals the power of the stars and the planets in relation to the terrestrial. In turn, astrology reinforces this power to some extent. This is why astrology is like a life-giving elixir to mankind.
The celestial bodies are the cause of all that takes place in the sub lunar world.
The cosmos is a vast living body, of which we are still parts. The sun is a great heart whose tremors run through our smallest veins. The moon is a great nerve-center from which we quiver forever. Who knows the power that Saturn has over us, or Venus? But it is a vital power, rippling exquisitely through us all the time.
D. H. Lawrence, Apocalypse
The controls of life are structured as forms and nuclear arrangements, in a relation with the motions of the universe.
Courteous Reader, Astrology is one of the most ancient Sciences, held in high esteem of old, by the Wise and the Great. Formerly, no Prince would make War or Peace, nor any General fight in Battle, in short, no important affair was undertaken without first consulting an Astrologer
It's common knowledge that a large percentage of Wall Street brokers use astrology.
That we can now think of no mechanism for astrology is relevant but unconvincing. No mechanism was known, for example, for continental drift when it was proposed by Wegener. Nevertheless, we see that Wegener was right, and those who objected on the grounds of unavailable mechanism were wrong. Carl Sagan
The question of all questions for humanity, the problem which lies behind all others and is more interesting than any of them, is that of the determination of man's place in nature and his relation to the cosmos.
Men should take their knowledge from the Sun, the Moon and the Stars.
Millionaires don't have astrologers, billionaires do.
J.P. Morgan (This is the correct quotation, according to Norman Winski, curator and owner of the Evangeline Adams Library, who was J.P. Morgan's Astrologer)
There shall be signs in the Sun, the Moon, and the Stars.
Jesus Christ, Luke 21:25
The seven seals represent our material attitudes and false beliefs. The first four seals to be opened are known as the Four Horsemen. Rev. 6:1-8, "I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seven seals, and I heard one of the four animals saying in a voice as of thunder. Come and See. And I looked and beheld a white horse, and he who sat on him had a bow, and a crown was given to him; and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.
And when he opened the second seal, I heard the second animal say, Come and see. And there went out another horse, and it was red, and to him who sat on it was given power to take away peace from the earth, that people should kill one another; and there was given to him a great sword.
And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third animal say, Come and see. And behold, I saw a black horse; and he who sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand. And I heard a voice in the midst of the four animals say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see that you do not damage the oil and the wine.
And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the fourth animal saying, Come and see. And I looked and behold a green (pale) horse; and the name of him who sat on him was Death, and Sheol followed after him. And power was given him over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword and with famine and with death and with the wild beasts of the earth."
The symbol of horses has long been used to represent power. Even today it is used in reference to the performance of the engines in our cars. There is a rider, or driver, the one guiding the power. We are at a state in our development that we have opened to the Christ Spirit. The warning here is in the misuse or undeveloped use of our powers. It is time now to let the Christ Spirit or consciousness be in charge of our lower 3 chakras, or emotional mental states.
This first beast is the man of Aquarius, air or spirit. The Christ spirit telling us to come and see. The symbols of the crown and the sword represent the promised victory of the White Horse. The victory is already promised us, through our persistence in keeping our vision high in the crown chakra of spirit and abiding in living truth.
Then we are lead to the tests, to those areas that we need to overcome within our selves. We each have our own lessons. We go through these on different levels of our spiritual journey, as a spiral, always rising upward gaining new insight and refining our truth and way of life.
The lion calls us forth to see, and the lion represents the fire of life. The red horse, represents desire, passion in its higher states, but can also be anger and war in the lower mental emotional states of consciousness. The great sword given is love. Love is the victory of the rider of the second horse. Love shall conquer all.
The third seal is opened by the beast of Taurus, the calf, earth. It is the black horse of the intellect or logical mind, material consciousness. Here we have the logical mind measuring and judging by appearances; the weighing of scales. In its higher aspect it is discernment, intuition, wisdom guiding over the intellect.
In its lower nature, it is one totally focused upon worldly power. Belief in lack and all that the effects of the physical world. Here we have the choice to use our intellect for the good of all or self serving. The intellect alone is without love or compassion; humility is its true power. The rider of this horse is reminded to not hurt the oil and wine the true nature of life; love and spirit.
The fourth seal is opened by the beast of Scorpio, the flying eagle, water. It is the pale horse of death and hell. This rider can be as the flying eagle soaring to new heights, or it can be in fear of losing physical life and all that this world has to offer.
It represents the emotional nature which is part of the physical body. Through fear our emotions can cause the appearance of pain, disease, suffering, and death, or through love we can experience the greatest joy. The sword given here is truth over the illusionary world.
We die to our old beliefs allowing the Christ Spirit to soar to it crowning glory of eternal life. This physical life is pale in comparison to the Christ Life. Our physical body is pale compared to our light or spirit body. This physical world is pale compared to the spiritual world we call the New Jerusalem or heaven.
Who is riding our horses, who is in control, what is driving us? This we must ask ourselves on a daily basis. We are told to die daily. We die daily to our old beliefs, to our old habits and old emotional responses. We have awakened the Christ within. It is time to let its power of love to be the guiding force and power in our lives.
Next in Chapter 6:9-17 is the opening of the and fifth and sixth seals, "And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the alter the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony of the Lamb which they had; And they cried with a loud voice saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell on the earth?
And a white robe was given to everyone of them; and it was said to them that they should rest yet for a little while, until the time should be fulfilled when their fellow servants and their brethren should be killed also as they had been. And I looked when he had opened the sixth seal, and behold, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black and sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;
And the stars of heaven fell to the earth, even as a fig tree casts its green figs when it is shaken by a mighty wind. And the heavens separated, as a scroll when it is rolled separately; and every mountain and island shifted from its resting place.
And the kings of the earth and the great men and the commanders of thousands and the rich and the mighty men and every bondman and every freeman hid themselves in caves and in clefts of the mountain. And said to the mountains and rocks. Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb; For the great day of his wrath is come, and who shall be able to stand?"
Here we are crying out how long shall it be before we are living life as Jesus Christ did; living in this world but not bound by it. The white robe, represents the higher consciousness, but to wait until this new consciousness is completely solidified.
Looking back we see our old beliefs that had to be slain, our old ways we had to turn our back on, our old emotional patterns had to die; and there are yet more to be killed as these had been done - these are our fellow servants and their brethren.
This is a process to clear away our old beliefs and fully be grounded in our new consciousness of spirit. Every time we go to our temple and to the Throne we are making progress. We bring our new consciousness into our daily lives. Until one day we realize that we have broken away totally from our beliefs in a material physical world it is like a great earthquake.
A shaking up of our lives, and the sun and moon, our intellect and emotions; our fearful thoughts and feelings, and our ego who had been our kings of power are now hiding so to speak to be crushed. They no longer have power over us. The mountains and islands are shifted; the stars come down. This represents a total shift of perspective from a material consciousness to spiritual; seeing a material world or a living spirit - God in expression.
The stars fallen to earth; means the awakening to the powers of spirit. Absolutely no separation and the 7th seal is opened. We have mastered our horses, transformed our false beliefs, awakened and ignited all seven candlesticks, raising the Kundalini energy up to the throne.
We are told to rest until all our spiritual faculties are ready. The stars represent the powers that are now revealed to us. In chapter 7 verse 4; "And I heard the number of those who were sealed; and it was a hundred and forty and four thousand, of all the tribes of the children of Israel."
It goes on to describe 12,000 sealed of each tribe or astrological sign. The number 12 is man in regeneration, and it is the regeneration of our mental and emotional nature to the 1000th power. And, when added together it is a nine, which is the highest number for mankind, of brotherhood, compassion, and service to all mankind.
Chapter 8: "And when he opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven for about the space of half an hour. Then I saw the seven angels who stood before God, and seven trumpets were given to them. "
Seven is spiritual victory, or completion. Prayers are answered, we rest in the grace of God. Every time we go to the inner spiritual silence we have victory, we have regeneration. The spirit of God moves through our mind, body, and soul, and we become as a shining body of stars, as the spirit of God guides our way.
Next week we continue on the Mystics Journey.
The rider of the red horse is befalled by the moon, and the moon shall devour her sweet orderves, and leave her land desolate and barren.
The rider of the black horse will fall backward and the iron from the left hoof will sear her consciousness with scales of brass.
The rider of the pale horse shall be smote by the worms deep within the bowels of the earth, even unto sheol everlasting.
When a human being is born, it must first crawl, before it can walk, then it must walk before it can run. All of life goes through various growth stages, both physically and spiritually.
The Light that animates your body could be at one of these levels, if you are a young photon, you will reject what you read here, but if you are a seasoned driver, then it will resonate with you, because you have been here many times, and have an inner knowing that a younger photon does not. A seasoned photon is often referred to as an "old soul".
Young photons adhere to group think, and tend to cling to societal standards and traditional religions, where as older photons (old souls), are rebels against the system (rage against the machine), they realize that we really do live in the matrix, and seek to escape it, they have already abandoned religion and any hope for a righteous government. It is these older seasoned veteran photons that will save us from ourselves.
Jesus sees some people going into a temple built by hands and he rebukes them, then one day Jesus is taking a walk and sees a Buddhist monk in the forest meditating, and says to the monk "I see you're about my fathers business".
The monk not understanding the language looks confused, then closes his eyes and continues in his meditation. Jesus walks away smiling, saying to himself, now that's a real Christian, it's too bad that my father wanted this truth written is dark sayings, allegory and parables.
"Blessed are the solitary and elect, for you will find the Kingdom. For you are from it, and to it you will return."
Do you see the word SOLITARY? The Book of Thomas is whispering to you, do you understand that this refers to quieting the mind in meditation? If you become solitary, you automatically become the elect. Then you will find God's kingdom.
Woe unto scribes and pharisees (lawyers) "You have taken away the key of knowledge. You entered not in yourselves and them that were entering in you hindered."
In other words religion has taken away the key
because they don't teach you
Psalms18:11 He made darkness his secret place;
But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly. (The closet, means within yourself). The word pray in the bible, means meditation.
Religious prayer is wrong. See here what jesus said about praying, as the religious do:
They sing songs, chant endless mindless prayers, totally against the biblical commandments, how do I know, because the bible tells me so, it says do not use vein repetition, while giving alms, it says while preying go into thy closet and prey to the father which is in secret, this means meditation.
"This means within you, it means meditation"
Amos 5:18 Woe unto you that desire the day of the LORD! to what end is it for you? the day of the LORD is darkness, and not light.
Amos 5:20 Shall not the day of the LORD be darkness, and not light even very dark, . (This is MEDITATION)
And we have developed convincing evidence that the Pineal Gland which Jacob noted when he saw God face to face, opens and is active in the dark.
In Genesis 32:30 Jacob sees God face to face and calls the place Peniel.
Numbers 23:19 God is not a man 1 John 1:5 This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you that God is light.
So if God is light, and the Pineal Gland is the brains light receptor, then it is reasonable to consider that the Pineal Gland is your bodies God receptor.
Rene Descartes said, The souls contact with the body is in the pineal gland
So if the only way one can communicate with the supreme light is via spirit, and spirit is inner light that is activated via the Pineal Gland, then we have suddenly opened the secret that the worlds religions have totally missed.
"Now that's the whole kit and kabootle"
God vs Satan is the just symbolism describing the duality of nature, and the duality of mind, of which the chinese Yin-Yang symbolizes. Jesus said " I come from the undivided" meaning the mind that has transcended duality and has become ONE (NEO).
The prodigal son returning home to the fathers house, this then becomes the son of man (the renewed mind).
If the Bible is not talking about the enlightenment process, then what is this verse doing in the Bible?
Of course it's talking about the enlightenment process, this is what the entire bible is about, it's about renewing YOUR mind. In the East it's called the kundalini, the opening of the seven seals on your backside, that's the six days of creation, and resting on the seventh.
Jesus said; I am the truth, the life and the way.
This means he is a pattern to follow, you do not project your energy outwardly, this is an INNER transformation, if someone points a finger, and tells you to look at a star, you don't concentrate on the finger, or you will miss all the heavenly glory, likewise if you concentrate on a LITERAL Jesus, you will also miss all the heavenly glory.
"Look not lo here, nor lo there, for the kingdom of God is WITHIN you"
Enlightenment takes place within the brain, when the energy of creation rises up the spine to bring about illumination.
But we are born with an animal mind, this mind must be overturned, so that we may rise to the highest mount of attainment and recapture the promised land from the Canaanites (the lower ego), controlling the faculties. We must save ZION, the higher potential within us all.
Why is a person an atheist? What makes a person turn away from religion, god and the bible, the answer is quite simple, they have actually read the Bible and all of the bloody horror within it's blood soaked hell fire and damnation pages, with all of it's bigotry and wild sex orgies.
Generally a person that says that they are an atheist is someone that actually read the bible, where as a christian simply followed their misleaders off the cliff, while reading only some cute Jesus parables.
Any decent person who is a whole harmonious sentient being who reads the old testament will be completely put off by the three headed monstrous god of that book, I personally wouldn't want to have anything to do with it either. But I know that it is heavy duty symbolism.
But the mistake is made in not understanding that those things written are symbols, they are dark sayings, hidden things, secret things, veiled things, which is mythology.
I mean who would anything to do with the monstrous god of the old testament? He commands mothers to dash babies against rocks, he commands mothers to eat the first born of their daughters, and fathers to eat the first born of their sons, he says if he can find you he will rape your wife before your eyes, smash your children to pieces and run you through with the sword. Killing out tribes all over the old testament, destroying the Earth in a flood, because God became angry.
Of course these are ALL symbolic statements talking about killing out the negative thoughts that arise out of one's own lower mind thinking, but not everyone gets that. All of these thoughts are your tribes, your people, the nations etc...hevites, jebusites, philistines etal, these are thoughts from your own LOWER egoic thinking.
"Your ENEMIES are those of your own HOUSE (mind)" said Jesus, that should clear it up right now once and for all, what all this stuff means, your enemies are within your very own consciousness, your own mind, your own thoughts.
The entire bible is talking about things that go on in the mind, the minds of men will either destroy us all, or uplift us all to new higher life and light. For everything begins and ends with MIND. There is NOTHING outside the field of MIND.
The first step to mystical realization is the leaving of such a defined god for an experience of transcendence, disengaging the ethnic from the elementary idea, "for any god who is not transparent to transcendence is an idol, and it's worshop is idoltry"
"God is an infinite sphere who's center is is everywhere, and circumference nowhere"
Thoughts of the mind
When the lord your god brings you into the land (higher consciousness) Cannan, which are entering to take possession of it, and clears away many notions before you, the Hittites, the Girgishites, the Amorites, the canaanites, the Perrezites, the Hivites and the Jebusites, even among nations greater and mightier than yourselves, and when the lord your god gives them over to you, and you defeat them; then you must destroy them; you shall make no covenant with the mind show them no mercy.
Giving your daughters (emotional thoughts), for your sons (higher thoughts). For they would turn away your sons from following me, to serve other gods (lower ego thoughts), then the anger of the lord would be kindled against you, and he would destroy you utterly. (All of your lower mind qualities).
But this shall you deal with them; you shall break down their alters, and dash in pieces their pillars, and hew down their Asherim, and burn their graven images with fire.
For you are a people holy to the lord your god has chosen you to be a people for his own possession, out of all the peoples (all of your thoughts) that are on the face of the earth (you). Deut 7:1:6
The Earth is always the human body in the bible mythology.
I hate to be graphic, but it is not me that is being graphic, it is the bible.
Then we read "She lusted after her lovers who's genitals (cocks) were like those of donkey's (huge cocks), and who's emissions (cum squirting) were like those of horses" That's porno size cocks right out of a porno film, huge cocks squirting giant loads of cum. yet it is written right there for all see in the King James Bible.
I mean imagine reading that and not knowing that you are reading Mythology. it is sick, yet we want the kiddies reading the bible don't we!
These are heavy duty symbolic statements written by men who were inspired by the higher conscious state, call it god if you want, in other words the bible says the the men that wrote those words were directly inspired by god.
2 tomothy 3:16
"ALL scriptureis given by inspiration of god" Then in 2 peter 9-20-21 it plainly states the following "No prophecy of the scriptures is of any private interpretation. for the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man, but only men of god spake as they were moved by the holy ghost"
Do you see, the men who wrote the mythologies were "moved" by the holy ghost or higher consciousness that exists in the cosmos.
That means that God actually thinks in these nasty crazy terms, and that begs the question, who the heck is this god?
But these men were on plant enthogens DMT, they were in an altered state, they received this inspiration right in the core of their brains while stoned, and they wrote what they saw in their visions. Getting stoned in the bible takes on a whole new meaning.
If all inspiration comes from the electromagnetic spectrum, which is called the Elyssian field in Greek Mythology, that means that those words written in the old testament came from the mind of the ALL (god), obviously this god has more wisdom than any human, to hold within it's confines these kinds of thoughts.
Yet it does just that, this is the way it thinks. Gods MIND, is very unusual, yet full of aged wisdom.
"The foolishness of god, is greater than the wisdom of the wisest man"
Donkey dongs, emissions of horses, OK God, you're some kind of thinker, that's for sure, I admit you're wisdom is greater than mine, no question about it, because I know in a thousand years, that I could have never come up with that one.
Again, I re post what you may have already read elsewhere.
2. "There she lusted after her lovers, whose genitals were like those of donkeys, an whose emission was like that of horses." Ezekiel 23:20
"She" is the mind. The mind lusts after the lower physical things. The genitals represent life, creation, origins. The genitals of the lower are brutish and stubborn (donkey).
They are the kinds of thoughts that will not follow the higher. They stay where they are. The emission means the seed that enters "her". Its life is brutish and stubborn but its origin is the horse which is the carrier to heaven. The horse is always used to transport the Gods to heaven, like Pegasus.
The heaven however is the mind that is controlled by the stubborn brutish nature. The combination of the two is a person who is very stubborn and brutish but takes charge and directs things from the lower or physical nature.
3. "Fair Babylon, you destroyer happy those who pay you back the evil you have done us! Happy is he who seizes your babies and dashes them against the rocks." Psalm 137:8-9
Babylon is the lower mind which is filled with attraction to the physical. It is not spiritual at all. To seize the minds babies is to cut off the new thoughts. The ideas and concepts that are born out of the lower mind are considered babies and to dash them against the rocks is to destroy the misguided new thoughts and concepts through the spirit which is steady. The Bible refers to it as the rock of salvation and the old song is called Rock of Ages.
4. "And Jacob said to Rebekah his mother, Behold, Esau my brother is a
hairy man, and I am a smooth man:" Gen 27:11
Hair that grows out of the body can mean either the Spirit or the physical senses which must be cut away. It depends on the sect. Some cut their hair such as Buddhists because to them hair symbolizes thoughts from the lower mind. Others let their hair grow (Islam) because it represents spirit. Here Esau who is the culprit in the story has hair which means lower thoughts while Jacob is of the spirit without lower thoughts growing from him.
5. "Let her be as the loving hind and pleasant roe; let her breasts
satisfy thee at all times" Proverbs 5:19
Her means the higher spirit. The inner light. Hind and Roe are deer which are symbols of a closeness to nature and a leaping toward the higher nature. The breasts provide milk which is spiritual food. Understanding , enlightenment. Thus the proverb says to allow the mind to commune with nature reaching up to the higher and feed on the milk or understanding that comes forth from the new mind. Interpreted by bill Donahue of hidden meanings.
A SCROLL, WOMAN WITH BLASPHEMOUS NAMES, WOMAN WITH MOON UNDER HER FEET
Revelations 6:14 The sky was removed like a scroll when it is rolled up. Every mountain and island were moved out of their places.
Continuation of the theme of the annihilation of the normal human consciousness (NINE); that is, the Second Death.
The sky is the a symbol of you consciousness, and note that it rolls up like a scroll, this is a symbol of the old consciousness, making way to the new consciousness, as the old is symbolically rolled up.
The mountains and islands represent your obstacles on this mystical journey through the mind, so these obstacles are removed by the regenerating power of the cosmic energy.
Never take this stuff literally as Hal Lindsey, Jack Van Impe and John Hagee, they believe that the sky will literally roll up, due to some nuclear explosion.
Such is the lower mind thinking of religious types, if they only understood, that all these things are but symbols of things that go on in the mind, during the kundalini experience. It's all mystical and symbolic as you have seen thus far.
There is no way in god's world that any of this could ever be taken for any literal event upon the real earth, it's ludicrous and a blunder to the ancient scripts of mythology to even consider.
The sky rolling up as a scroll, PLEASE!!
Gospel of Thomas
Jesus said, "The heavens and the earth will be rolled up in your presence. And one who lives from the Living One will not see death." Does not Jesus say, "Whoever finds himself is superior to the world?"
The sky will be here tomorrow and a trillion more tomorrows, just as you see it now. It might one day appear to disappear if our sun (Jesus) burns out, but we wouldn't live to see it anyway.
Symbols, symbols, symbols, that's what it all is.
"Don't be a minister of the letter (literal)"
We shall not do it then!
Following the dictum of the sage, Hermes Trismegistus, that "the vice of a soul is ignorance, the virtue of a soul is knowledge," the scriptures of old inculcated the precept that with all man’s getting he must first get wisdom and understanding
The corruption and final loss of the basic meaning of these scriptures has been, in the whole of time, the greatest tragedy in human history.
Like Shakespeare’s tide, which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune, but, omitted, casts all the rest of life in shoals and quicksands, the wreckage of the Esoteric Gnosis in the centuries following Plato’s day, culminating in the debacle of all philosophical religion about the third century of Christianity’s development and ushering in sixteen centuries of the Dark Ages.
This has thrown all religion out of basic relation to true understanding and caused it to breed an endless train of evils, fanaticisms, bigotries, idiosyncrasies, superstitions, wars and persecutions that more than anything else blacken the record of man’s historic struggle toward the light.
What, then, must be the importance of a book which restores to the scriptures of ancient wisdom the lost light of their true original meaning?
Ancient philosophy taught that the true path of evolutionary growth was to be trodden by an effort that united the forces of the spirit with those of the world, the lower disciplined by the higher.
No one could have said it better than Mr. Kuhn.
The re-awakening of the "third eye" Pineal gland (or single eye of the Cyclops) through the practice of yogic meditation and the awakening of the psychic centers or chakras along the spine (scroll) by the flow of kundalini the serpent-fire. Which is electromagnetic energy from the universe.
When man focuses his divine thinking lens upon himself, he will realize that he is the epitome of unlimited cosmic energy. Then the "heavens will roll together as a scroll" and reveal the real man, when the lamb of god takes away the sins of the world. (the pineal gland).
Back to interpreting the mythology of the book of revelations
6:15 The kings of the earth, the princes, the commanding officers, the rich, the strong, and every slave and free person, hid themselves in the caves and in the rocks of the mountains.
There is no human power in the confrontation with the Power of God to destroy the normal human consciousness.
The kings of the earth are the three horses, the physical, the intellectual and the emotional nature, they are the princes and commanders of your mind until the enlightenment process is finished, the rich, slaves and free persons represent all of the thought patterns that arise from this lower consciousness.
In other words the lower mind is losing the battle to the higher and is symbolically hiding out from the fall out, as it's empire, the old personality gives way to the higher mind.
12:1 A great sign was seen in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars.
Esoterically, this is a symbol for the consciousness of the normal human personality after it has received both the Vision of "Son of man" and the Revelation of the "resurrection of the dead".
and the moon under her feet, Esoterically, this demonstrates the control of the consciousness of the Knowledge of Truth over the 'unconscious'.
The woman is the mind, and clothed with the sun.
The sun is a symbol of the highest state of consciousness, Jesus, Ra, Mithra, Buddha etc..
In all sun god mythologies, the sun is always the highest state.
Here the symbolism is the woman (the mind) is now radiating this new consciousness, symbolized by being clothes with the sun. You mind has new raiment, has new garments, and these new garments are the sun/Jesus.
The moon is under the feet, because in all mythologies the moon represents the lower nature, which is sin, as sin is the Chaldean moon god.
This symbol represents that the mind is now under the influence of the higher aspect (the sun), and has control over the animal mind, represents as being under the feet, showing the domination over the lower lunar mind.
And the 12 stars represent the cosmic energy from the 12 signs of the zodiac.
The new mind or highest state of consciousness.
In general gold relates to the Sun or Higher Self and silver to the Moon or Lower Self.
The moon is more than just a pale satellite of interest to poets and astronomers. Its influence goes beyond merely creating ocean tides or driving biological cycles.
More importantly, the moon exerts a significant influence upon the mechanical, emotional, and psychological states in man.
The werewolf myth and superstition concerning full moon lunacy are not far from the truth. Certain lunar phases heighten the possibility for emotionally draining situations and stimulate reactivity and sensitivity in vulnerable individuals.
Personal observation reveals what numerous esoteric sources have explained at length, namely that we are food for the moon.
In man, the moon drives his mechanical aspects like a pendulum moving the gears of a clock. The degree to which one’s actions are driven by the moon is proportional to one’s level of reactivity and non-being.
For people incapable of moving themselves through life by nobler spiritual impulses, the moon provides a propulsive force. Without this force, mechanical individuals would be passive as puppets without a puppeteer.
Ouspensky went so far as to say that the very physical motion of our limbs was made possible thanks to the moon. Other Fourth Way initiates like Rodney Collin explained that because our body was largely made of water and the moon pulls on water to create the ocean tides, our bodies are made to move in similar but more complicated ways through hydraulic principles.
The quantity of force necessary to genuinely oppose the influence of the Moon is already considerable. The first imperative, then, is to stop wasting these forces, to turn off the taps which let the energy escape uselessly: sterile emotions, in particular negative emotions; fantasies from uncontrolled imagination; uncoordinated mental gymnastics, gossiping and chattering.
This is the MOON mind!!
The physical is under the control of the moon, but not the spiritual.
One who has learned to control the finer forces within themselves, it is the emotions.
These together form the microcosmic structure of the human body. The Sun represents the Higher Self and the Moon is a symbol of the Personality or lower ego mind.. Your task is to achieve the integration of the powers of these two triads whilst living in your physical body.
Who then is the woman clothed with the Sun? Clearly the 12 stars are the zodiac and the energy from these stars energising the 12 cranial nerves of your brain.
The Great Mother is symbolized by the Higher mind, received in the virgin consciousness of meditation. In the sky the Virgin in Pisces gives birth to the Monads as Stars, with the Solar and Lunar Selves.
It is the culmination and integration of your physical and spiritual forms.
And it is the meaning of the entire bible story.
God and Your Mind
Contrary to scientific opinion your mind does not have its origin in your brain.
Consciousness originates with God. Your Monad has god-like powers but lacks experience.
Therefore your Soul is sent forth to gain knowledge on Earth. What it does learn is transferred at the death of the physical body to a higher spiritual body known as the Causal Body.
Death can refer only to your physical body. You do NOT die at death. Your consciousness is freed from your body and it continues to live on the astral and mental planes which surround the Earth. Your Personality uses language as a means of communication.
If you want to communicate with other spiritual beings you must learn to pass information via symbols and pictures. That's why all these things are done in symbols, because symbols are a doorway to the right hemisphere of the brain. Only right brained people can discern such symbolism.
Your Higher Self is the repository of your consciousness when your body dies. Your body is related to the planet Earth. Your mind is associated with the Moon. Your Higher Self uses a form of Solar consciousness related to the Solar Logos or Christ. This means that there is a universal form of religion based on your spiritual anatomy, which in turn is a miniature reflection of the universe in which you live.
Your task is to unite your lunar personality to your Solar Higher Self.
This is called spiritual alchemy because it refers to the marriage of the Moon and the Sun within you, even when you are living on this planet Earth. Seek the Light within you.
The progress of the Great Work in the crucible (the brain) was often likened to the work of creation, and the generation of the spiritual man is in analogy with that of the natural man.
The Emerald tablet reads
Truly, without Deceit, certainly and absolutely
That which is Below corresponds to that which is Above, and that which is Above corresponds to that which is Below, in the accomplishment of the Miracle of One Thing. And just as all things have come from One, through the Mediation of One, so all things follow from this One Thing in the same way.
Its Father is the Sun. Its Mother is the Moon. The Wind (electromagnetism) has carried it in his Belly. Its Nourishment is the Earth (YOU). It is the Father of every completed Thing in the whole World. Its Strength is intact if it is turned towards the Earth. Separate the Earth by Fire: the fine from the gross, gently, and with great skill.
It rises from Earth to Heaven, and then it descends again to the Earth, and receives Power from Above and from Below. Thus you will have the Glory of the whole World. All Obscurity will be clear to you. This is the strong Power of all Power because it overcomes everything fine and penetrates everything solid.
In this way was the World created. From this there will be amazing Applications, because this is the Pattern.
Therefore am I called Thrice Greatest Hermes, having the three parts of the Wisdom of the whole World.
Herein have I completely explained the Operation of the Sun.
The basis of all the alchemical transformations required to obtain the Stone (called the Great Work) is seven-stepped formula described by the Emerald Tablet of Hermes.
The first four steps take place Below, in the realm of matter.
The last three steps take place Above, in the brain.
The philosophers stone, is the pineal gland, and the four below the real of matter, is making reference to the first four chakra points.
The Three above, are last three chakra points, totaling SEVEN.
In simplest terms, the King and Queen represent the two natures, the sun center, and lower moon center within us all. That must come together, to create the hermetic marriage, between the physical, and the spiritual.
The King symbolizes the power of rational thought, ultimately the One Mind of the highest spirit.
The Queen stands for the influence of feelings and emotions, which are ultimately the chaotic One Thing of the greater soul.
The much anticipated Marriage of the King and Queen produces a state of consciousness best described as a feeling intellect, which can be raised and purified to produce a state of perfect intuition, a direct gnosis of reality. "
All Obscurity will be clear to you," says the tablet of this state of mind; it is "the Glory of the Whole Universe." The goal of alchemy is to make this golden moment permanent in a state of consciousness called the Philosopher’s Stone, and it all starts with the marriage of opposites within us, by activating the pineal gland, by exercising it, during meditation.
Therefore melding the flesh and spirit into one golden egg, called Christ consciousness, Buddha consciousness etc.
It's the same story that's hidden in the mythological book called the bible. The wedding feast of the soul at cana, the prodigal son and the Greek and Egyptian myths. It's all the same stuff, just told by a different voice.
The same promise that is in the emerald tablet, is the same promise that is in the Bible. A oneness, and a knowing, that only comes from the Cosmos above.
By binding the influences of the electromagnetism from the stars above, via meditation.
Hence I am called Hermes Trismegist, having the three parts of ye philosophy of ye whole world.
That which I have said of ye operation of ye Sun is accomplished & ended.
You see , it's all the same, from the emerald tablets, to the bible story.
It is the marriage of the sun and the moon within you.
12:2 She was with child. She cried out in pain, laboring to give birth.
She was with child. She cried out in pain, laboring to give birth.
This is a symbol for the emergence of the consciousness of the Knowledge of Truth and the emergence of the War of the Sons of Light". (See the writings of Jungian and archetypal psychology.
What is being said here is that the mind (she) cried out in pain, as this mind is about to give birth to the Christ consciousness.
This is the birth of the new mind.
It is a painful process to let go of the old self, the self that has been by your side your whole life, it is like loosing something of the likes you have never experienced before. Nothing compares, to the giving up of the ego.
Symbolically interpreted, the Gospel story relates to the individualized Ray of the Cosmic Christ, which is latent in each human heart. In the events of Jesus' life we see this Christ-consciousness conceived, come to birth, grow in power, overcome the lower nature, master all its forces and make them willing servants, and finally triumph over death itself.
These events from the miraculous birth from a virgin, the flight, the baptism, the crucifixion, the rock tomb, the descent into the nether regions, the resurrection and the appearance afterward- all find a parallel in the lives of the other Saviors or Light bringers, all of whom held the same exalted place in the minds and hearts of their worshipers as Jesus holds among Christians. If these events were found in but one or two instances they might be attributed to coincidence.
In the zodiac
"In the zodiac the Annunciation indicates the time when the Sun enters the sign is in Virgo, August 22nd, where it foreshadows the `birth' in Capricorn, the manger."
While we are passing through the lower stages of unfoldment the Spiritual Consciousness is scarcely more than a vague overshadowing, but after many incarnations, we reach a stage where our minds are willing to recognize and admit that there is a Consciousness which transcends the ordinary human intellect. This is the Spiritual Consciousness which, when contacted through meditation
The annunciation that the Hindu savior, Krishna, was to be an incarnation of Vishnu was made to his mother, Devaki, by Vishnu himself. The coming birth of Hercules was announced by Zeus to his mother, Alkmene, Queen of Thebes. The birth of the Egyptian King, Amerzhotep III, was announced to the maiden Queen, ivlautmes, by the messenger-god, Thoth.
The birth of Confucius was announced by a giant dragon called Ire-lin. An angel from Orion announcud to Sochiquetze, the mother of Quaetzalcoatle, that she would bear a child who would be the savior of his people. Even Plato's birth, is said to have been announced, by Apollo, to his father, Aris, to whom his mother was only espoused.
fills us with light, life and love. We then realize that a closer union with Spiritual Consciousness is worth striving for. Only then does the mind become "espoused" to the heart. Still later a stage of development is reached when our heart realizes through intuition that a definite illumination is possible: the birth of a new consciousness, a new power, a new conception of Divine Love, the Christ-consciousness.
But ere this new birth can take place we must pass through the stages and experiences corresponding to the nine months necessary for physical gestation. Nine is the number of Initiation,' and it may require not merely nine months to prepare for this Initiation into the new life,
but many years or even many incarnations nine periods of unfoldment, according to our rate of growth to accomplish our spiritual gestation before the spiritual possibilities we have glimpsed at the time of the Annunciation can be brought down to earth and be born into the waking consciousness and we can bring them forth in the outer life.
Since the ass is the symbol of our animal nature, its use by Mary indicates that through love (Mary) and consideration, assisted by the mind (Joseph), we must so subdue and train the animal nature that it will become a willing and obedient servant to carry us on to the attainment of our highest ideals.
All infant Light bringers are therefore represented as being pursued by some vindictive ruler and fleeing to some far-off place of safety. But in none of the stories is the child ever caught, so the pursuer orders a slaughter of the innocents as the stars pale and disappear at dawn."
Herod's "massacre of the innocents" is another of those incidents which delight the historical critics and are the despair of the literalism. For although we find the incident given only in St. Matthew, the whole setting is flatly denied by the account of the birth given in St. Luke. It is not a question of St. Luke's merely failing to record the incident, but of his recording events which directly contradict the whole story of the flight into Egypt.
Will the Christ consciousness come?
Or will it be prevented?
Revelation 17:5 And on her forehead a name was written, "MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF THE PROSTITUTES AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH."
The Prostitute of Babylon symbolizes lust and the beast it rides on are man made ideas stemming from self-gratification. It is explained to John that these forces have taken control of the seven spiritual centers of Man's body, thereby becoming possessed and ruled.
However, as the highest forces of evolving humanity overcome the forces of self, even the ten basic urges symbolized by the ten horns, will in time fulfill the divine pattern. As the divine nature in humanity becomes less realized, society is destroyed by its own hand through self-gratification.
Two women perform pivotal roles here in the Apocalypse. The first of these women appears "clothed with the sun and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars." This is the good women (the higher mind)
The other woman is portrayed as a "mystery, Babylon the Great, the mother of harlots and abominations of the earth." (the lower mind).
In the metaphysics of ecstasy both of these women symbolize the creative activity of consciousness. The first woman symbolizes that activity in general and the second one as specifically enacted in human life.
The first woman represents the as yet unformed, and thus underlying matrix, or primary principle and origin (arche) of human evolution. The second woman represents the condition of ego conscious awareness in which humanity now finds itself in this present moment of its evolution.
Both of these aspects of conscious creative activity are depicted as threefold. The first as the sun, moon and twelve stars. The second as Babylon, Sodom and Egypt.
Their threefold depiction typifies the creative energy of consciousness as manifested in the individual human being. According to the metaphysics of ecstasy, this trio of individualized creative energies consists of five faculties of subjective knowing, that are symbolized by the sun, seven abilities of objective experiencing, that are symbolized by the moon, and the sum of these twelve differentiated energies combined and under conscious control. This last is symbolized by the crown of twelve stars (the five plus the seven forming a crown).
Babylon, Sodom and Egypt is another cipher. It refers to the triadic nature of the human being, both male and female. The uterus/vagina and ovaries. The prostate/penis and testicles. The physical the intellectual and the emotional.
In the Upanishads, this threefold creative force, which is there termed the kundalini shakti, resides in the genitals. Specifically the forces of pingala and ida repose respectively in the left and right ovaries or testicles. The third force, sushumna, reposes in the uterus/vagina of the female and the prostate/penis of the male.
This third location is referred to in the Upanishads as the muladhara chakra, the "root." It is defined commonly in Sanskrit literature simply as "near the base of the spine." But this wording is euphemistic and even possibly meant to mislead. For tantra identifies the "muladhara chakra" quite clearly as the root of the penis and the vagina.
Technically, the real base of the spine is the coccyx which functions as a pump to lift this creative energy up the spinal column to the brain. There the energy nourishes the intellect and intuition. In the Gospel allegory, the ascent of this triple current of energy from the genitals to the brain becomes the story of the crucifixion of Jesus.
The heavy cross that Jesus carries symbolizes the potent energy of the genitals, whose physical array in both genders roughly approximates the shape of a cross.
The journey of Jesus up the hill to Golgotha thus symbolizes the passage of this sexual energy up the spine to the crossing point in the brain, the pineal gland. Here Jesus, the apocalyptic code word for intuition (noesis), is impaled on the cross of vitalizing energies. And thus is human intuition awakened into conscious activity.
And now we finally know who this mysterious woman is.
The harlot, the mother of all prostitutes of the earth (you).
It is none other than;
The great power of the LOWER EGO ANIMAL MIND.
She has been revealed at last, and it is not the Catholic Church, although she is a whore that has also prostituted the whole earth as a synchronicity.
But the real whore and prostitute here is right in your own body and mind.
The forehead represents the state of consciousness under her influence.
Not so mysterious after all. Yet deadly!
I have a co-worker that has her name plastered all over his forehead, I bet you know some that do as well, maybe your boss does.
