deer

Another 'piece' within that mind set? 'The Swimming deer'. The 'tip' of a mammoth horn - in two pieces. Enlarged throughout.

A {working?} example: "In the Iliad, King Nestor, the aging ruler of Pylos, is known as the Gerenian charioteer...Nestors personal 'star' is the beautiful yellowish star known as Capella, or the she goat, whose offspring are two stars below and known as the Kids. This introduces another legend in which the infant Zeus was fed milk and honey by the horn of a she goat; Homer tells us that words fell from the lips of the garrulous Nestor 'sweeter than honey'. Unfortunately, so the story tells us, the tip of the horn broke, but it was replaced by the nymphs so that Zeus could continue to feed; this mythical event gave us the phrase the 'Horn of Plenty'. One of the 'Kids' in Auriga, may well represent the 'tip' of same..." ['Homer's Secret Iliad']. Try ''horn'' and/or ''Nestor'' for that broader view.

Side note: The tip of an {iceberg?}. What does it imply?

Landscape equivalent? It is said, that the name Hunstanton originated from the word 'honeystone' - a reference to the local red Carr stone. Could also be a reference to the river Hun which runs close by towards the coast, just east of Hunstanton. ..The original settlement of Hunstanton is now known as Old Hunstanton...The river begins in the grounds of Old Hunstanton park which surrounds the old moated hall - the ancestral home of the Le - Strange family. The Old Hunstanton village is of prehistoric origin and is situated near the head of Peddars Way. " [Wiki/Hunstanton].

N.B. Moses who was named by a 'stranger',i,e.,it was a stranger who gave him the name that we all know him by. His natural mother named him something else. Link to difference between external / internal - exoteric / esoteric.

The word ''peculiar'' of the same vein, i.e.,with the same intent, i.e.,a strange choice of word; to the norm. Find it to understand it, relative to the 'whole'.

"My name means the one which is peculiar to me alone." [Num.vi.27].

Analogy? "The name of Llew, like the naming of Pryderi, is taken from his mother's first expostulation." [Page 80 'Mabon and the Mysteries of Britain: An Exploration of the Mabinogion'].

And/or: "The following promise was therefore made, implying that mankind will at a certain future time understand this subject, and be free from the error it involves {i.e.,something other than the obvious}: 'In that day will the Lord be ONE, and his name one." Zech.xiv.9. [Page 90. 'Guide for the Perplexed'].

"The children of Seth [Set] first possessed that peculiar sort of wisdom, which is concerned with the heavenly bodies",[chapter five.' The Sirius Mystery'], i.e., from an 'unknown'[and/or 'negative', and/or 'shadow' origin. Possible link to 'sacrifice'?] start point, with a purpose in mind. All as a representation of something...outside, of the obvious.

'Peculiar' in relation to Set. Negative in relation to positive - shadow in relation to light - that 'unknown' that is a stranger to something known?

Understanding the above in the context of this {overall} subject gives meaning to what this author is attempting to understand, i.e.,

"Interestingly, the Sabaeans, the pagan inhabitants of Harran, were said to have been 'worshippers of fire called Magi' and claimed to be keepers of the mysterious 'book of Seth,' because their founder was one 'Sabius, a son of Seth'...So could the original book or books of Seth have been carved stone pillars, like those uncovered today at Gobekli-tepe...If so, then who or what might the twin central pillars have come to represent in Jewish, Christian, and Gnostic tradition? To much speculation here would be foolish, although the fact that Gnostic writings emphasize that Cain and Abel, the twin sons of Adam, each had twin sisters is intriguing and reminds us of the belief that twins always grew inside the womb during pregnancy. Moreover, that Seth was born as Abel's replacement sets up a twin like relationship between Cain and Seth, reflected in the stories regarding our descendancy either from the ' sons of Cain' or the 'seed of Seth'. Those central pillars at Gobekli-tepe are perhaps allusions to this twin tradition, although whether they can be seen as the twin offspring of Adam, the first man, who in Gnostic teaching was overshadowed by his own celestial twin, is another matter altogether.'' [From the book by A. Collins].

Try 'twins'. {It} being a part of... ''that peculiar sort of wisdom."

A working example {i.e.,a work in progress}..."At the commencement of the Masonic ceremonies, it is pointed out that Freemasonry is a 'peculiar system of morality, veiled in allegory'. I thought i knew what an allegory was, but i still looked up the word in an Oxford Dictionary to ensure i had a correct interpretation. The answer stated was: ''narrative describing one subject under the guise of another''. " [From the book by K. Gest].

Analogy of same..."It is important to state unambiguously that our data are not in conflict with ''science,'' as the naive will imagine - in fact, we will provide several scientific explanations for all of it - but it is, grotesquely and awkwardly, in total conflict with common sense. It is perverse, paradoxical and preposterous. One might say, ''its damned funny," and if a child asked innocently, ''Do you mean 'funny ha ha' or 'funny peculiar'?" I'd have to say, ''Both." [Extract from the book by R. A. Wilson].

"Clement of Alexandria elucidates the idea that Jesus is the 'son of god' by explaining: 'The Son is the consciousness of the Father.' The 'Father' is the Mystery...the dazzling darkness of UNconscious Consciousness." [From the book by T. Freke and P. Gandy. Emphasis, this readers].

clock2As we have seen, a certain level of commonality of orders, grades and rituals, in addition to the actual content and delivery of teachings, is evident across many of the schools of Western esotericism. It is proposed, however, that the cosmological grounding of the Western esoteric tradition in a world of 'hierarchies' and intermediaries, allied with a gnostic concern of self deliverance, logically requires a curriculum of praxis and theoria which not only reflects the cosmology, but necessitates a mechanism to deliver a promised salvation." [Extract from the book 'The Magister' from a chapter entitled 'The Strange Reward'].

The above are comments from what is termed as the ''Western Way'' {'ritual' way}. Enlarged elsewhere. The study of a subject by objective analysis - what this reader defines as the 'READERS Way' gives the same results, i.e.,the contents of this web page. Those keys are universal, i.e.,''commonality of orders, grades..." All bound and understood together when one ''gets ones head around it'' [see Part 1 to refresh ] - represented by the word ''gnosis'' or more importantly - what it came to imply - through the course of generations - through the course of trial and error; what the above author defines as ''...allied with a gnostic concern of self deliverance..,." Simply put: That act of ''getting ones head around it'' equates to those eureka {'epiphany'?} moments that ALL subjects require in order to define something - in order to get a result, {enlarged throughout}. As for the teacher element that the above author indicates is an absolute necessity - if only within the 'ritual' stuff - as should be plainly understood as to why, i.e.,those 'keys' are only given 'bits' at a time over the course of an applicants 'membership'. That external 'teacher' who determines where and when - depending on the 'development' of each individual. This web page contains the bulk of those keys in order to self instruct oneself - in order to define the subject - nothing else, {''micro within the macro''}. And like all subjects that is best done objectively. Its main TEACHING AID. Once again those keys are universal - the question, however, that each reader should ask - is WHY?

The word ''epiphany'' used throughout in such programs as 'Will Self's Search For Meaning' {Radio 4/4pm/10.8.16}. Many opinions given about ''the nature of our existence'' as seen differently in all philosophy's and religions. Understand this one final subject to define all those convoluted questions and answers.

'Mans Search for Meaning' / Viktor Frankl.

nhyHowever it was delivered and received [i.e.,the subject in general], there was one clear goal with this content - that the student learn correspondence between all aspects of their experience: For it is the science of correspondence he is studying the whole time, whether between the 'divine' powers and the universe; between these and man; or between these again and the different planes and developments in the life of nature." [Same book]. Try ''correspondence''.

As an example..."The 'mystical' origin of matter and the fall into creation are linked with the nature of the third sphere [of the Hebrew Tree]- and the strangers ranging over the wide world are relatives of fallen man, expelled from the garden." [Taken from 'Where is Saint George'. Mentioned elsewhere].

"...In this small circle of light, surrounded by darkness, we are, as Plato says, ''strange prisoners'' and psychology and esotericism both seek the keys to our escape and restoration." Anything? Try ''stranger''.

'The Strangest Man: The Hidden Life of Paul Dirac, Quantum Genius' / G. Farmelo.

"Got to see it, rather than just read it..." John Humphrys talking to D. Tennant and Greg Doran in relation to the plays by W. Shakespeare. [400th anniversary. Radio 4. 23/04/16].

Leonardo da vinci, as speculated in such programs as 'Ancient Aliens' { 'The Da Vinci conspiracy' History 2 channel. March 2014} speculates on what happened to same, in his 'missing' two years. He wrote very little about himself, but as mentioned in the same program, one of the first notes he makes in his own private journal has a reference to a 'cave', and 'Medusa.' Speculation rules the roost, about the possibility of alien contact, within that same 'cave' as the origin of Da Vinci's 'genius'. Those first impressions, running riot, on that eternal merry-go-round of wishful thinking. {As it does in one of their most recent programs in relation to the Orion constellation. {April 2014} ].

Analogy of same?..."But such philosophical questions can best be postponed until after we have examined the chrono-log of my own adventures in Chapel Perilous. Remember: it is tricky in there. Some of the time we will not seem to be passing through the Gates of Mystery but merely wandering about in a Fun House at a rather seedy Amusement Park." [Extract from the book 'The Cosmic Mystery'. Mentioned/enlarged elsewhere].

And/or..."Actually, i no longer disbelieve in the Illuminati, but i don't believe in them yet, either. Let us explain that odd remark quickly, before we may go any further in the murk. In researching occult conspiracies, one eventually faces a crossroad of mythic proportions {called Chapel Perilous in the trade}. You come out on the other side either a stone paranoid or an agnostic; there is no third way. I came out an agnostic." [Same book].

Understanding {i.e.,keys} this subject offers a more plausible answer. Recall what 'cave' is symbolic of. Together with the 'animal', and more importantly what it represents; within the subject as a whole; that emerged from the 'head of Medusa'. And Medusa's link to the overall 'godhead' [Greek equivalent] of which 'Zeus' lords over all. Recall Minerva. I.E.,a different 'aspect', of the same principle. That same subject. This subjects core essence. Question .Why? Can you 'see' it yet? [For further information on same, see Stecchini's work,i.e.,anything 'winged' represents 'higher'. Potential of].

As most individuals know, even those without an esoteric 'vent', Da Vinci's work is full of this subjects 'inner' meaning. As proven by such works as the Mona Lisa. Mentioned elsewhere.

As a side note it is worth noting, if only for this reader, that if aliens do walk amongst us, they will more than likely be discovered within the profession of hairdressing. As proven by the presenter of 'Ancient Aliens'. One of those constant programs dedicated to the 'alternative' view. Namely Mr Giorgio A. Tsoukalos, alias 'Sparky'. What other 'being' could create such a hair do...other than...something not of this world.

In the new testament that 'inner understanding' is represented [ in its physical / 'reality' form] by the man ‘Jesus’ in his ‘new bod’. Seen shortly after ‘death’.[ Death/rebirth analogy. Explained elsewhere ]...to 'Mary Magdalene'. Just a different aspect of the word ’Mary’. In relation to the ‘divine/ bit’... relative...to the main character. Mary/Mary Magdalene symbolic of conscious/unconscious respectively and/or aware/unaware and/ or positive/negative aspects of the individual in relation to higher/lower ’self.’ [ Anima/animus links ].

All the above a link to what became known; in part; as the ‘Greater/Lesser’ mysteries. As indicated in such books as ‘World Mysticism. By T. Freke and P. Gandy. Or ‘The Mysteries’. By C.Wilson. And especially ‘Language of the Goddess’. By M. Gimbutas. Very similar to Mr R. Graves book but more up to date especially in relation to this subject. And/or 'Woman's Mysteries: Ancient and Modern' by M. Esther Harding.

Those ''greater/lesser'' principles expressed throughout, regardless of time, place or culture.

Analogy of same, i.e.,using different words to describe same principles..."Reference is made to the ''greater light'' which illuminates the 'three', and secondly, to the throwing upward of the ''lower light.'' Top/down in relation to Bottom/up. 'Into' relative to 'back to'. North/South relative to South/North as its ''physical'' representation. All explained throughout. Quote by A. Bailey. Recall what those ''three'' are a representation of.

Question. Out of the head?

Egyptian equivalent = Isis/Nephthys, in relation to Anubis, [by way of Osiris]. That final relationship to Horus. [Explained elsewhere.]. That same ‘unconscious/unaware’ link to what eventually became represented and known as the ‘Black Madonna, i.e., the 'Shadow' and/or anima/animus ‘bit’...of ‘Mary’. Roman equivalent = Minerva. Born "out of the head of Jupiter". [or Greek equivalent = Athena, from the 'forehead' of Zeus]. That now new ’goddess’, [ anima ] that becomes the central ‘figure head’, i.e., start point of a new 'development', in relation to an understanding...i.e.,

"a mental state in which spiritual perceptions were achieved, distinguishing between the 'shadow mixed with light', when the power of the imagination was mixed with reason...." [Chapter 24, 'The Sacred History']. As a representation of something.

Another example..."Another change was also initiated during this phase in the rise of power and favour of the moon goddess, who was said to be the daughter of Sinn [moon god]. In the course of time her worship came to supersede that of the older moon god and the transition, of which we will shall have occasion to speak later, was made and the moon lost its 'male' sex and became 'female' "

Sinn who was called the 'Father' of the gods [Babylonia] - who was identified with the 'sickle' and 'crescent'. [Page 88, 'Women's Mysteries: Ancient and Modern'. Mentioned elsewhere]. Question why? What do they represent? Found within.

'Man in the Moon' / 'Hare in the Moon'?

Hera? Anagram of 'Hare' ? ?

Similar analogy - implying same..."Just as the full realty of human life consists of days and nights - of the bright day consciousness and the dark sway of the unconscious - so the full reality of the history of humanity, consists of a day aspect and a night aspect. The day aspect comprises the account of the actuality of what has become, and the night aspect embraces the activity of its becoming. The same could be said for the Bible story - applying both to what is becoming and what has become - is convincing when one considers the Bible from this point of view." Quote from within the book by V. Tomberg. Link to Horus in/of the horizon. OR

"As above so below. The ancient initiates, recognizing the limitations of human thinking and of human methods for expressing their thinking , postulated as a working hypothesis the theory of the Divine Oversoul, analogous to the Soul of man. And this theory of a Divine Creative Oversoul which is analogous in its working to the soul of man, and with which the human soul can get conscious communion, is the background of both ancient and modern Mystery school training." [Chapter 5, 'The Forgotten Mage'. Mentioned elsewhere].

The real question however one should ask is Why? Why go to all this effort. Boredom? Illusional?

"The lengthened shadow of a man Is history, said Emerson." [Extract from 'Selected Poems' by T. S. Eliot]. Think on it, in relation to 'light': From darkness.

All indicative to imply something other than the obvious. The most present one being indicative within the American medal of Honor. That same central figure head that is represented within that ‘upside down’ medal. A link to the 'Hang-mans' card of Tarot fame or the Triple uraeus of Cleopatra fame. [ Explained elsewhere ].

Or for a later development...that of ‘Aradia’. The ‘daughter’ of Diana and her ‘brother’ Lucifer, i.e., anima / shadow links. That ‘unknown’ quantity. Now has a start point. To become known. Or more to the point. In relation to this subject. A negative [ ‘lucifer’, link to 'fall' symbolism, by way of 'fallen' ], with a possible positive potential. Indirect link to this subject, i.e., a ‘subconscious’ link that eventually through awareness becomes a ‘known’ quantity, [ conscious of ]. From darkness to light. From something we did not know to something we now do know. Or are at least becoming aware of. Hence the link to Lucifer being identified with the 'Morning Star' as explained in chapter 4, of 'The History of the World' / J. Black. i.e., Isaiah 14:12....

"How thou art fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, 'son of ', the morning". Hence the reason why the word 'Lucifer' is identified as '' the light bringer''.

nhytRefresher: "What we call 'evil' is the manifestation of a soul considerably out of balance - evil is the disharmony of the soul. Hell is not a place, but a state of mind. Both poles are necessary to find the perfection of balance which leads us to what the Bible calls heaven. Again, heaven is not a place, but a state of mind - a state of being." ['Truth Vibrations'].

"In response to the question, Where does the spirit go after death?, Boehme had once answered in a way that has something of the Teutonic Zen of Eckhart...''it has no need to go anywhere. The spirit has heaven and hell within it. Heaven and hell are within one another and are to one another as nothing.''

Practical analogy of same..."I remained obstinately silent. My Guru quickly penetrated my difficulty. "Do you think your relatives will laugh at you?"...'I will not return'...The controversial tension unrelieved, i bowed reverently at his feet and departed. Walking in the midnight darkness towards the hermitage, i wondered why the miraculous meeting had ended on an inharmonious note. The dual scales of maya - that balance every joy with a grief! My young heart was not yet malleable to the transforming fingers of my guru." [Extract from the book on Paramahansa Yogananda. Enlarged elsewhere].

And/or: {even though a little heavy going - as all are by this particular author and family members - but because of those universal constants, meaning can be achieved}: "What i mean to say, is that all men, through their individualistic nature, have in them the root of that which you call 'sins.' But don't you think the sculptors of the cathedrals were of the same opinion when, on the pedestals supporting figures of saints, they portrayed grimacing characters with vicious or diabolical faces? Shouldn't one conclude that sanctity is the fruit of combat, or the transmutation of these natural tendencies into supernatural forces?" ['Journey into the Light'].

Try the ''fruit of ones labo{u}rs'' in relation to incarnation/reincarnation - in the present moment.

N.B: Within the constellation Virgo such star descriptions as ''Grape-gatherer'' and/or ''Fruit-plucking Herald''. ['Star Names and Their Meaning'].

That final sentence also defines [if only in the Eastern sense] the 'difference' - on a day to day basis - between incarnation and reincarnation. The Western Way 'employs' a different method. Found within. Also 'East' and 'West' represented by the Bosphorus strait. Link to the - clashing rocks ; those 'Wandering' ones.

'Planets'. What do they represent within this subject?

220px-Paderborner_Dom_Dreihasenfenster[1]

"A soul that possessed a link of sympathy with the mystery of the heavens - such was Hermes {Hermopolis?} who had experienced all." {Kore Kosmu}.

Refresher: "Mercury, the planet closest to the sun, is visible to the naked eye at dawn or dusk for less than two hours , for only short periods during the year. As bright as a first magnitude star, the planet never rises far above the horizon and is easily obscured by low cloud or mist, making it difficult to find. Copernicus is reputed never to have seen it from his observatory in Frauenburg in Poland {hint, hint?}. Phoebus Apollo has been associated with light, and as Mercury in the morning skies {'evening' one represented with Hermes} he heralds dawn and the rising sun. Later mythology associates Apollo with the sun, but in Homer the god has, for a number of reasons, been linked to the planet Mercury when it is seen before the sun rises. In Book 10, during the night raid on the Trojan lines Apollo wakens the Thracian Hippocoon shortly before dawn, the time when Mercury can be seen. Apollo is another supporter of the Trojans and their allies, and as Mercury he champions them as the planet travels through the zodiac. With Mercury above Orion, perhaps in Taurus, Apollo is said by Homer to be aiding Hector in his clashes with..." ['Homer Secret Iliad'].

Side note: "Equinoxes were equally significant, being recognised by the equality of day and night as well as their occurrences midway between the two solstices. In ancient Egypt, the vernal equinox coincided with the return of Orion's rising before dawn, an event which heralded the symbolic return of Osiris, as he was associated with the constellation {'horizontal'?}. The autumn equinox was also a sacred time in stellar {'vertical'?} terms; it coincided with the rising of the star Spica {enlarged elsewhere} before dawn. This star was associated with Isis, and thus the two equinoxes were identified with the 'divine' pair..." ['From the book by R. Clark].

REFRESHER: "The circle is an image of pure 'spirit'...The crescent {semi-circle} that for the 'soul'...The vertical line that for the 'mind' and the horizontal line that for the 'body'. When the mind and body are combined, they form the 'cross of matter'. [Page 6 'Mapping the Psyche']. Try ''semi-circle'' for a connection.

"Because of Lucifer, the light of 'animal' consciousness [i.e.,relative to a 'start' point] was introduced into the world, and what the story of Adam and Eve tells us is that with 'animal' life came desire. But with desire came suffering. 'Lucifer' attacks us in different ways. 'He' makes us liable to make mistakes." [Chapter 3, 'The Sacred History' by J. Black], i.e., day to day stuff, those negatives and positives, that balancing act we all do day by day, intentional or otherwise. Aware of it or not.

behind

Two steps forward?

Represented as a 'fall' , in order to 'get back on the right path'. Two steps forward and only one back. In other words using the same example. Representing in symbolic form all those different aspects of that individual, [Jesus ] which were at one stage unaware, [ ‘unconscious’ ] are now ‘fully aware’, i.e., information learned in his ‘missing years’...and is now verified. If only to that individual, i.e., ‘verily, verily'. [ New testament ].

Symbolic of a new beginning. From a ‘theoretical’ to a practical. From knowledge acquired to being applied, i.e., 'second leg' of that total journey. Most commonly known as ones ‘ghosty bit’. As indicated and ‘researched’ by such individuals as S. Muldoon and Mr Robert Monroe, [especially,and if only, his first book]. Defined in the present day as ‘an out of body experience'. [Or book of same by Celia Green].

Remember...objectivity. It has a certain logic to it. A possible logic...but only when you understand what they imply...What every ‘student’ in all those ‘mystery’ clubs are eventually made aware of within those first few years of ‘membership’. What is meant by the ‘Divine bit’ in relation to that total ‘journey’ from the viewpoint of the observer in [A]. That same link to J.Naydler book...‘Shamanic wisdom in the pyramid texts’ . Indicating the possibility of what that origin; of information; may be.

What is that origin? Alchemists refer to it as ‘First matter’ possibly with ‘Quintessence’. Indirect link to the ‘Philosophers stone’. [ Explained elsewhere ].

The words ’Ain sof’ represents the same; in part; with the Kabbalists. Or the ‘spark’ of the zohar, [ Hebrew esotericsm ]. Or in Sufi lore words like ‘ineffable / unmanifest’.

Hindu equivalent ''nameless Eternal.'' i.e.,"Beyond all and alone stands the Supreme Eternal, the Imperishable Brahman, dark in utter mystery {i.e.,UNmanifested}. the Root of all that is, was, or shall ever be. Neither subject nor object, neither knower, knowing, or known can exist in the unspeakable Being of That which is beyond all names." [Chapter 8, 'The Yoga of the Bhagavat Gita'].

An attempt to define something that is then, and still is...an ‘unknown’ quantity. Hence the link to such ’indescribable’ words that attempt to define the same. That led to such books as ‘The Kybalion’ /Three initiates. One of the first attempts to put ‘substance’ to that ‘unknown quantity’...relative to an understanding. In the ‘spiritual’ sense. From a ‘spiritual’ rather than an ’empirical’ viewpoint, 'by way' of those three aspects, that are common to all.

Question. What would represent something becoming 'Manifested' ?

As an example..."I would not have felt obliged to step forward and openly reveal it...........to write you a book in which i would tell what i have obtained through my intuition, during my retreats and 'visions'. In every seeking soul, there is a portion, be it small or great, of the light of god." [Introduction, 'The Philosophy of Illumination' by Suhrawardi].

But remember, that 'spiritual' analogy has logic to it, and the essence/core of anything... that has any logic to it... can be 'assessed' by deductive reasoning, especially when all the 'circumstantial evidence' is taken into the equation. If 'circumstantial' is good enough for the legal profession, then it follows by the same logic, that it should be good enough to evaluate anything and everything else, including this subject... Middle ground between 'spiritual and empirical? Think about it. [ If you can get your head around it; then your ‘read’ of it is better than mine. The book that is, i.e.,the 'Kybalion'. This reader is still scratching ].

philae

Coptic cross at the entrance to the inner sanctuary, Temple of Isis, Philae, Egypt. Question 'nineteen' {'cup?'} marks in total?

"The discussion continues and Tat expresses his desire to be immersed in the Cup of Mind [i.e., Krater. Or the Monad. Enlarged elsewhere. Link to the meaning of the word 'Grail']. Finally the dialogue ends with what i feel to be one of the most remarkable passages of the entire Hermetic corpus. Describing the 'divine' source of the cosmos, Hermes explains: The Oneness [monad] being Source [arche] and Root of all, is in all things as Root and Source. Without this source exists nothing; whereas the Source itself is from nothing but itself, since it is Source of all the rest. It is itself its Source, since it may have no other Source. The Oneness then being source, contains every number, but is contained by none; it engenders every number, but is engendered by no other one. Now all that is engendered is imperfect, for it is divisible, and subject to both increase and to decrease; but with the 'Perfect One' none of these things do hold. Now that which is increasable 'increases' from the Oneness, but succumbs through its own 'feebleness' when it no longer can contain the One. And now, O Tat, 'God's' image has been sketched for you, insofar as it can be; and if you will attentively dwell on it and observe it with your heart's eyes, believe me, son, you'll find the path which leads above; nay, that image shall become your guide itself, because the Sight Divine has this peculiar charm, it holds fast and draws unto it those who succeed in opening their eyes, just as, they say, the magnetic stone draws iron." [Page 213/4 'Alexandria' Vol 1, by D. Fideler]. Try ''polarities'' - its place within this subject. And/or ''crocodile''.

''Feebleness'' in relation to ''fall'' ?

"In the Pagan Mysteries, beginners were known as 'mystae', meaning 'those with eyes closed', and enlightened initiates were known as 'epopteia' meaning, 'those who can see'." [From the book by T. Freke and P. Gandy].

'Mans Search for Meaning' / Viktor Frankl.

"In 1932, despite being at the height of of his fame, physicist Wolfgang Pauli felt compelled to seek the psychological help of world-renowned psychoanalyst Carl Jung. The two men developed a close friendship - and a joint obsession with a primal number at the root of the universe. They looked at the mystical number 137 for clues to understanding the unconscious, thereby delving into what Jung called ''the no man's land between Physics and the Psychology of the Unconscious...the most fascinating yet the darkest hunting ground of our times." [Back cover to the book '137: Jung, Pauli, and the Pursuit of a Scientific Obsession' by Arthur Miller].

''No mans land'' = 'Waters of the Gap'? Enlarged elsewhere.

Medway Gap?

"A few mornings later i made my way to Masters empty sitting room. I planned to meditate, but my laudable purpose was unshared by disobedient thoughts. They scattered like birds before the hunter." [Extract from the book 'Autobiography of a Yogi'. Mentioned elsewhere].

Atalanta?

Side note: A {working?} example: "However, faery is where you find it. In my own experience there can be a sudden feeling of euphoria that seems to 'well up' from the ground, and on further investigation, found to be associated with a rising water spring and a nearby tree or ring of trees. Two trees in a hedgerow have also provided an unexpected doorway, or window, that turned out to be an oak and an ash, with a thorn bush growing between them. I learned a great deal with patterns of bird flight in 'looking through' that particular gateway. But it is important to stress, i think, that i did not go out looking for these particular sites - they, on the contrary, seemed almost to be lying in wait for me, revealing themselves unexpectedly. An important check on validity is perhaps a sense of surprise." ['The Faery Gates of Avalon' / G. Knight. Emphasis, this readers].

Spirit in relation to Soul. That benefit of, relative to the individual. Check it out.

Spirit in relation to Soul. Symbolic of. That benefit of, relative to the individual. Check it out. Question. What represents 'shadow' ? And Why.

Refresher: " I make no secret whatsoever of the fact that my rather revolutionary model of the atom came to me in a dream.'' Niels Bohr.

Continued...The Greeks referred to that same 'process' with the word 'nous', ["direct spiritual 'insight'], that becomes "the pilot for the soul", [chapter four. J.Naydler book. Mentioned elsewhere].

Question. S/W - S/E = Landscape equivalent?

 

 

Celtic equivalent of same principles: "The god Hu was the all ruling divinity of western Celtic mythology. He represented the power and glory of the spiritual world, and in that sense, the spiritual, not the physical sun. He was 'wedded' to the goddess Ceridwen; and Ceridwen was the soul of the world, bestowing the power of 'vision' upon the human soul...And so we can imagine, that when Ceridwen made herself known in her true form {eureka moments?} - all 'terror' and fury of darkness overcome, her Cauldron {enlarged elsewhere} of Nature, would be the Iris itself, radiant glowing, living, creating - the Girdle of Hu the 'Mighty'. " ['The Flaming Door']. Try ''girdle'' to see it in its broader context.

Think about it, in relation to what the word 'soul' ; in the main; represents, i.e., "Our life in this world was a 'ladder' between heaven and earth, whose 'sides' are the body and soul [anima], upon which individuals ascend through humility, and/or descend through self-exaltation, {shadow?}. Emphasis, this readers,{with the exception of the word in 'bold' print}...introduction. 'The Brother hood of the Common Life'. Mentioned elsewhere].

Taken together with..."that man is formed with a body and heart, and by the heart, i mean the essence of mans spirit, which is the seat of the 'knowledge' of 'god'... ", ['Path to Sufism'/ Al-Ghazali].

While recalling what that 'process' ...as shown in its 'physical' state, is a representational of, i.e., in the Egyptian case... with all Pharaohs seated on their thrones, indicative of a 'spiritual' understanding, [explained elsewhere. Use the 'find' indicator]. That same 'spiritual' understanding that ;in the main; is represented in its 'physical' form as a 'serpent'. Compare to the 'seated' arrangements at Gobekli-tepe. Back to the outside. Front to the inside. See anything? i.e.,internal / external links.

A 'Shield'? Recall what 'two lions' represent.

As seen from a different perspective...''By means of the cup, we can put anything ''into'' our Magical Cosmos we want, just as by the Shield we can exclude anything. So far as the inner world is concerned, the Cup means IN and the Shield means OUT. The Inner Cosmos must have internalities and externalities like any other Cosmos. So with the Cup, we take into ourselves all that we truly love and hold dearest to us, which we want nearest to our essential being. All else we arrange as externalities around the demarcation circle of ''Me and We'' by means of the Shield. This makes the Cup the most ''sacred'' of the instruments, since we should only use it for taking in and pouring forth the very best and finest energies we are capable of containing."

The above link to such books as 'The Eleventh Hour'. By M.Lings. Especially in relation to the symbolism of 'Twelve' {i.e.,'inner cosmos' by way of those 12 signs - what they represent} i.e., What does the title imply. Think about it in relation to an understanding. Same as the 'Eleventh' and 'Twelfth' divisions of 'The Book of What is in the Duat', [Chapter Three.'The Master Game'. Mentioned elsewhere], in relation to the remaining 'story' of what is in the 'duat', relative to the reader.

Relative in the sense, of working out its symbolism, what it represents, relative to the individual. "It is the darkest hour, the hour before the dawn, and the Soul, reduced to performing the tasks of a servant, is lost to sight altogether. The forces of materialism seem triumphant and the very existence of the Soul becomes a matter of doubt, or even denial. But not forever can the soul be thus buried in darkness. The 'allotted' period draws to its close, and the Soul emerges from its obscurity with all its flashing powers." [Prologue, 'The Yoga of the Bhagavat Gita' ].

The flashing helmet of Hector? Recall the 'helmet' of Achilles.

What this subject calls... ''the dark night of the soul'', of which becomes, that books start and end point. From 'dark' to light. From unaware to aware. That understanding of a ''connectedness''. Relative to the divine 'bit'. Possibility of.

That same ‘unknown quantity’ that is very loosely termed in the present era as a ‘Singularity point’. [Not ''The'' singularity point]. Or more importantly what it 'emerged' from, [ possibilities of ]. Remember...Not literal. Symbolic of a beginning. An origin. A general idea in order to give the beginner an interest towards forming his/her own ideas about the subject. In order that they question the subject further. To explore what those new options / possibilities could be. [ ‘A book of Beginnings’. By G. Massey. ’Keys’ can be found but only when cross referenced with other ‘verified’ works].

"The more one has ''open eyes'' for quantity; the more one becomes blind to quality." Quote from within the book by Tomberg.

And/or - its alternative viewpoint {i.e.,in the positive sense of the 'word' - even if slightly dramatic}: "There exists a concept, obvious to the sages of all times, the meaning and very possibility of which are totally beyond the understanding of rationalistic thinking: the concept of qualitative exaltation." {'Sacred Science']. ''Quality'' in relation to ''gnosis''.

''Exalted'' in relation to {as a means}: "In order to approach the esoterism of the problem, the symbol of the lotus must be recalled, equally valid for both India and Egypt. It is seen that the lotus has its roots in the earth, grows in and by means of water, that its leaves are nourished by air and its flowers by the sun's 'fire'. Thus the lotus symbolizes the four elements...The lotus flower represents the 'final' product, not only regenerated but exalted...Philosophically, such an exaltation finds its culmination in the absolute...This is the true meaning of an exaltation of the mortal towards the immortal..." Same book.

As a side note, some sceptic's of this subject, when such words as 'relative' or 'observer' or 'singularity' are used to define something within it, endorse their own beliefs that the 'whole' is nothing more than a ''New age'' phenomenon, or the equivalent. [Those first impressions]. Individuals they assume who play on such words since the creation of General Relativity early in the last century, to endorse their personal beliefs. Such words as most know, are not the sole ownership of any particular subject, as proven within this subject, especially within the Sufi texts that; for countless generations; [prior to the above] have used the same; in relation to ''unmanifest'' and ''manifest''. Their version of 'unknown'/ known, or 'aware'/ unaware, in attempting to define something. Others include ''ineffable/effable''.

A {working} example: "For exact understanding exact language is necessary. And the study of systems of ancient knowledge begins with the study of a language which will make it possible to establish at once exactly what is being said, from what point of view, and in what connection. This 'new' language contains hardly any new terms or new nomenclature, but it bases the construction of speech upon a new principle, namely the principle of relativity; that is to say, it introduces relativity into all concepts and thus makes possible an accurate determination of the angle of thought - for what precisely ordinary language lacks are expressions of relativity..." And/or " The division of man into 'seven' categories, or seven numbers, explains thousands of things which otherwise cannot be understood. This division gives the first conception of relativity as applied to man. Things may be one thing or another thing according to the kind of man from whose point of view, or in relation to whom, they are taken...['In Search of the Miraculous']. Try ''angle'' and ''seven''.

The Hindu way is best explained; at least for this reader; by such authors as Bede Griffiths. ’The Cosmic Revelation’...and ‘A New Vision of Reality’. Explaining that same framework together with the ‘Divine bit’ but now in Hindu terminology. Try and find ’it’. The Hindu equivalent of that ‘bit’. ' A New Model of the Universe' by P. D. Ouspensky - a different perspective... on the same principles.

The most recent publications of the same...are by such authors as T. Freke. ’The Mystery Experience’...and other such books by the same author. Or even Mr Fred Wolf. Alias Dr Quantum. Attempting to define the same in his own unique way. Or any books by Rene Guenon. Explaining those same concepts but now in relation to other ‘religions’. All Self delusional?

fredA more up to date example of same could be the opinions put forward in Mr D. Wilcocks book, 'The Source Field Investigations', especially in relation to DNA , as put forward in chapter nine of the same book. What he terms as 'the DNA phantom effect', especially the quote..."Gariaev's discovery suggests that the complete genetic code for an organism might not be found in the DNA molecule after all...at least not as their final location". Think about it, relative to A/B/C and what all these authors from multiple generations infer about the 'Divine bit', in relation to the rest of that 'framework'.

Certain Pagan ‘alphabets’ it is said, [ Ogham? ] were shown with a ‘notch’ in the ‘x’ letter. The word... 'notch' is a link to two other key words. ’Hook / Latch’. Letters when hooked together form words...that form sentences...that when hooked together form paragraphs. That form pages of possible knowledge [i.e.,'gnosis'] that could lead to...inspirations and aspirations from that ‘unconscious’ start to a now slowly emerging one. That lead to a possible understanding of something new. All of which have to be represented in some form - for an understanding to take place. Link to the word ''symbolism''.

Side note: "The Arabians called these Jabbat al Akrab, the forehead, or Front, of the Scorpion; and the Chinese - Kow Kin, a Hook and Latch. They are an interesting naked pair to the eye..." [Notes within 'Scorpio' from the book 'Star Names and Their Meaning'].

'Line of sight' ?

"These forms in letters and pictures and images are the means by which truths may be brought to the attention of the unripe mind." [Extract taken from the 'introduction' to the book by F. Hartman].

The now conscious aspect of the same is represented; in its physical form; by what is referred to as the ‘Hooked staff’, [ 'Crosier' ]. That every cleric person from bishop upwards are allowed ‘to be’ in possession of. Some understand its true symbolism. Others do not, [ Explained elsewhere ].

Those same inspirations/aspirations that ‘themselves’ must have parameters/boundaries, [ Key ]. Must have emerged from somewhere. Egyptian equivalent...from 'Pay-lands' to 'enclosures' to 'chambers', [ development of. 'Mythical Origin of the Egyptian Temple']. That ‘somewhere’, that within this subject regardless of culture is always represented in its physical form or the written one with another key word. ’Niche’. Or its equivalent...as indicated; of the same; as in the Queens ’ chamber’. [ Gt.Pyramid ] Or the book... ’The Niche of lights’. By Al-Ghazali.

'Pay Dirt'.

Side note: The author G. Hancock and E. Reymond attempt to understand ''pay-land'' in the literal sense of the 'word' especially {if only in Hancocks case} in relation to the 'Atlantis' story. Define subject material to interpret the parts within the whole - or at least gets one as close to a true answer - including the word ''Atlantis''. Enlarged further on and throughout.

Semi-circle? S/E?

A {working?} example: "In the present day - those boundaries for each constellation have become very complex, but nevertheless the Iliad gives an occasional clue about the boundaries that Homer envisaged for at least a small number of constellations. Indications of these can be seen in his references to the 'huts' and 'tents' of leading 'warriors' who have been assigned via the Catalogue of Ships to stars within those constellations...{as an example} "The upper part of his helmet is identifiable as a shallow dome of faint stars in the 'head' of Bootes: 'On this Odysseus went at once into his tent {and} put his 'shield' about his 'shoulders'. The stars of Corona Borealis make a fine shield, and there relationship to Bootes gives them the impression of being carried on the shoulders of Odysseus...Greek leaders such as Idomeneus and Meriones {Taurus} and Eurypylus {Lyra} also have 'huts' and 'tents' - the areas of the sky encompassed by their respective constellation boundaries. Achilles {Canis Major} in his celestial 'hut' when he is 'sitting opposite' his friend Patroclus {Canis Minor}; it can be seen that this places their personal stars at opposite ends of the constellation boundary defined by Homer." ['Homer's Secret Iliad']. Follow the title of the book to 'see' it in its broader context.

Side note: 'Huts' in relation to the Land of Punt? And 'Tents' in relation to the Wilderness story?

Something extra{?}:" Caer Arianrhod is both the castle of Death and of Rebirth, and in Welsh stands for the Corona Borealis - the Crown of the North - suggesting a link between Arianrhod and the Greek Ariadne, who received a 'crown' from Dionysus which became known as the Corona in subsequent myths. As she is so firmly rooted in the 'Otherworld', Arianrhod has no associated places, though she is most definitely a stellar contact." [Page 77 'The Western Way' / Vol 1].

And/or: ''Otherworld'' in relation to such quotes as ''collective ancestral wisdom'' and/or ''metaphysical planes'' relative too - ''Avalon, Hollow Hills, the Blessed Isles, Summerland {'Summer Triangle'?}…. in the place beyond the sunset, ever westward where the light is always that of twilight {i.e.,from a as yet 'unknown' aspect}. Hence: ''It is a waiting place, a place of learning and nourishment {'food' link}....The place of traditional learning and wisdom, where springs the well of inspiration....For the Jews it was to 'be gathered in Abraham's Bosom.'' And/or {analogy}: "The Celtic Otherworld retains its ambiance of 'Joy'. It is aptly described as the Fortunate Isle, the Honeyed Plain of Bliss, the Apple Isle and the Summer country: all set somewhere west..." [Pages 107-109 same book].

220px-Paderborner_Dom_Dreihasenfenster[1]Side note: {something to ponder on}: "The stars marking the ribs of the figure in this constellation are, in some maps, mingled with those of Capricorn...It is interesting to note that one of its three stars was occulted by Mars on the 1st October, 1672...These and others have allowed modern astronomers, especially Leverrier, to ascertain the mean motion of the planet Mars, and materially aid them in calculating the mass of the earth and our distance from the sun...Petosiris talks about the Lesser Waterman in relation to the Scythe {sickle?}, the Hare/fox/grey wolf and Altar constellation...but I find no mention of this elsewhere....Sadalmelik lies on the Right Shoulder of the figure, 1 degree south of the celestial equator, and has a distant 11th magnitude grey companion. Called with its companion stars, Brown says - Foundation. It was a determinate star within this lunar station." ['Star Names and Their Meaning' under 'Aquarius']. ''Ribs'' of Genesis?

Try ''lucky/unlucky'' in relation to light/dark. Capricorn/Cancer? ALL AS MEANS {'Equator'?}...?

Continued i.e., {from previous paragraph}: "God' is the Light of the heavens and the earth. The parable of 'his' Light is as if there were a niche and within it a lamp, the lamp enclosed in glass, the glass as it were a brilliant star lit from a blessed tree, an olive, neither of the East, or of the West, whose oil is well-neigh luminous, though 'fire' scarce touches it; light upon light....." [Quran 24:35]......

"The meaning of the niche is the faithful heart of the believer. The 'lamp' enlightening, the niche of the heart is the essence of the heart, while the light that it sheds is the divine secret...."[ Chapter 9, 'The Secret of Secrets'].

That 'divine' word again.

"No one after lighting a lamp covers it with a vessel, or puts it under a bed, but puts it on a stand, that those who enter may see the light. For nothing is hid that shall not be made manifest, nor anything secret that shall not be known and come to light." [Jesus, Luke 8.16].

Out of that ‘niche’ of the mind possible inspirations and aspirations may emerge that could lead to a positive awareness by way of... as he attempts to describe it in the same book [i.e.,'The Niche of Lights'... an "incommunicable mystery." i.e.,as an example...by way of...the contents of this web page. That 'incommunicable' language that the figure Enoch represents, in different forms throughout different cultures / 'religions'. Found within.

Side note: "The key essential element for growth has always been change {via motion}, and so we must, if we wish to grow, constantly strive to escape from the comfortable congestion of our daily lives - we must attempt to climb into a ''larger box'' {chamber?} whenever we can, like a snake shedding its skin through successive cycles of growth....We must actively think our way out, and the best way to do that is to constantly question - to test and probe the 'concreteness' of our world....We are engulfed in a sea of mystery which is normally never thought about or considered due to the well constructed walls of our defences." [Page 18 of the book by D. Monroe].

Example{?}: Those 'White Walls' that surrounded the Step Pyramid.

"The King had brought me to his chambers." [Song of Songs, 1:4]. This verse has been interpreted as meaning that he whose search has reached a certain level feels that he is in the place of the 'King'. He goes from room to room, from hall to hall, 'seeking him' out. However the 'kings palace' is an endless series of 'worlds', and as a man proceeds in his search from room to room, he holds only the end of the string [key]. It is never the less, a continuous going, a going after 'god', a going to 'god', day after day, year after year." [Emphasis this readers. Chapter 8, 'The Thirteen Petalled Rose'. Mentioned elsewhere].

Analogy {can you see it}: ''In the case of of the Homeland of the Primeval Ones it seems that enough of the 'sunken island' remained close to the surface for the survivors to attempt to win some of it back from the 'sea' - {wet/dry link} - an endeavour referred to in the Edfu texts as the 'creation of the pay-lands', where the term 'pay-land' {pay dirt?} clearly means land reclaimed from the sea {fenland?}. Thus we read how sacred 'spells' were recited; the waters gradually receded from the edge of the island, and the actual 'land' was brought out. The text then describe: a process of ...continuous creation by the emergence of a progressive series of plots of land...The creation of these 'sacred domains' was, in fact, a resurrection and restoration of what had been in the past but had vanished...At the end there appeared further pay-lands which brought to a new life of the 'former' homeland..." ['Magicians of the Gods' / G. Hancock]. Try ''fen'' and/or ''floating island'' - all as a means...?

And/or: As seen from a different perspective, i.e., a ''ritual'' one - but because those images/archetypes/pictures - are universal, an understanding can be got. Regardless of whether one 'participates' or studies. That is, an understanding into a mind set. The chapter is entitled 'The Visualization' {page 178} of the book 'The Way of Merlin'.....''We sit {''Temple of man''?} -upon the ridge {of a rocky outcrop} facing towards the distant sea. Looking out over the great plain below.'' It goes on about the landscape travelled, rivers, animals, bridges etc. Then: "The path taken undulates but always heads towards the sea... Where the sea and land meet, we fling ourselves down upon the beach, and realize that we have come to a place where the elements merge and separate...." Continued elsewhere.

And/or: ''Sacred Spells'' in relation to: "On this point, the best sense Reymond {i.e.,,author of 'Mythical Origin of the Egyptian Temple'} is able to make of what she describes as an 'unusually obscure' text, is that the protection was constituted by means of symbols {keys}. The 'magical' power of protecting was conferred by a giving 'of names' {i.e.,as one other example - Adam in Genesis}. Same book. All emphasis, this readers.

Understanding the overall subject gives clues as to its 'connectedness' to other cultures, i.e.,recall what the word 'King' is; {previous paragraph with different author} in the main; symbolic of, by way of positive over negative represented with some as 'the eternal apprentice'. As with the word 'string' and 'continuous'. The Egyptian equivalent, the twisted rope that 'connects' all those different 'aspects' on amongst other things, the carvings/ paintings on tomb walls. The 'coiled rope' being a symbol of the word 'Re-stau'. Which in itself gives clues as to the possible resting place of certain individuals.

Refresher - but now with additional symbols, {therefore 'keys'} within it: "On this point, the best sense Reymond is able to make of what she describes as an 'unusually obscure' text, is that the protection was constituted by means of symbols. The 'magical' power of protecting was conferred by a giving 'of names' . The Apkallus mingled their 'magic' with practical skills - such as laying the foundations of cities and temples. Similarly, the seven Sages of the Edfu texts also had their practical, architectural side and many passages testify to their involvement in the setting out and construction of buildings and in the laying of foundations. Moreover, the Egyptians believed that 'the ground plans of the historical temples were established according to what the Sages of the primeval age revealed to Thoth..." [G. Hancock book].

Synchronistic Analogy?..."But, he told me, as a group we were not aligned properly in our energies. He ''showed'' me to myself wearing a t-shirt with the image of an X in the middle of as circle. What was needed, he said, was to revolve the X of our energy so that it would appear as a cross. He said that to do this, we all needed to come very close together. He said he and the others were caught ''between the worlds,'' and that we had come there to release them...And all of the work and hardship we had endured, both in our own lives and now, trekking through the hot sun of a southwestern August, had been needed just for this task we were there to perform...I told the group about my dream and vision. One other member had received a similar vision...I sat down again, everyone on the bus spontaneously joined hands and went into a profound heart connection. And, again spontaneously, with tears flowing, we all began singing with one voice the hymn, ''Amazing Grace''. We could ''see'' the children all around us and feel them rejoicing. ''I was once lost but now i am found''. At that very moment we began to sing, the driver changed roads, from Route 666 to Highway 160, heading for the meeting place of Utah, Colorado, New Mexico and Arizona, the point at which the 'Four Corners' come together. The visionary Anasazi leader reappeared to me and said, ''look.'' The image of the circle and the X he had shown me before - had turned into the image of our medicine wheel, with the four center stones in the shape of a cross.''You must do the ceremony now,'' he said. ''You must be standing on Mother Earth.'' We needed to find the next place to stop, where we could pull over and do the ceremony out on the land, and that ''next possible place'' just happened to be the junction of the Four Corners."

A working example?..."The Beast is like our ego and egocentric interests. It represents the work of 'self' alone, without gods influence {'grace' link?}. The mark is erased when the work of our hands and thoughts of our minds are cooperating with 'god', rather than simply being self driven. The Beast is our lower nature at our most selfish, self-centered, self glorifying point of existence." ['Wisdom of the 4th Way' / Mentioned elsewhere]. Enlarged elsewhere.

wheel"We believe we have sufficiently demonstrated the significance of the cross, the depth of its esotericism, and its predominance in symbolism in general. As far as the practical realization of the Work is concerned, it certainly offers no less value nor teaching. It is the first key, the most considerable and most secret of all the ones that can open the sanctuary of nature of man. This key always appears in visible characters, outlined by nature her-self, obedient to the divine will on the cornerstone of the work, which is also the fundamental stone of the church and Christian truth." ['The Dwellings of the Philosophers'. Page 205].

"I often perceive my mind as a lump of stone, with life unfolding like trickling water that flows into violent rivers: these rivers form grooves in the stone. However hard we try to chip away at these grooves with our fingertips they become ineffaceable, which is why it is neigh impossible to change a mind carved over decades by forces that are often beyond our control. This does not imply that you should stop trying to change them." [Extract from the book by Q. S. Lam]. Possible synchronicity link. Enlarged elsewhere. Try ''Q. S. Lam''.

Seen from a different perspective?..."When, therefore, a primitive or barbarous consciousness forms a picture of itself on a much earlier level of development and continues to do so for hundreds or even thousands of years, undeterred by the contamination of its archaic qualities with differentiated, highly developed mental products, then the casual explanation is that the older the archaic qualities are, the more conservative and pertinacious is their behaviour. One simply cannot shake off the memory image of things as they were, and drags it along like a senseless appendage. This explanation, which is facile enough to satisfy the rationalistic requirements of our age, would certainly not meet with the approval of the Winnebagos, the nearest possessors of the trickster cycle...

...For them the myth is not in any sense a remnant - it is far too amusing for that, and an object of undivided enjoyment. For them it still 'functions', provided that they have not been spoiled by civilisations. For them there is no earthly reason to theorise about the meaning and purpose of myths, just as the xmas tree seems no problem at all to the naive European. For the thoughtful observer, however, both trickster and xmas tree afford reason enough for reflection. Naturally it depends very much on the mentality of the observer what he thinks about these things. Considering the crude primitivity of the trickster cycle, it would not be surprising if one saw in this myth simply the reflection of an earlier, rudimentary stage of consciousness, which is what the trickster obviously seems to be. The only question that would need answering is whether such personified reflections exist at all in empirical psychology. As a matter of fact they do...

apep_1-294x300...Now if the myth were nothing but an historical remnant one would have to ask why it has not long since vanished into the great rubbish heap of the past, and why it continues to make its influence felt on the highest level of civilisation...I have, i think, found a suitable designation for this character component when i called it the 'shadow'...We are no longer aware that in carnival customs and the like there are remnants of a collective shadow figure which prove that the personal shadow is in part descended from the numinous collective figure. This collective figure gradually breaks up under the impact of civilisation, leaving traces in folklore which are difficult to recognise. But the main part of him gets personalised and is made an object of personal responsibility...

...Radin's trickster cycle preserves the shadow in its pristine mythological form, and thus points back to a much earlier stage of consciousness which existed before the birth of the myth, when the Indian was still groping about in a similar mental darkness. Only when his consciousness reached a higher level could he detach the earlier state from himself and objectify it, that is, say anything about it. So long as his consciousness was itself 'trickster like', such a confrontation could obviously not take place. It was possible only when the attainment of a newer and higher level of consciousness enabled him to look back on a lower and inferior state..."

Continued: A working example ,i.e.,Hebrew {Kabbalah} equivalent. Apply the above to define the following..."It is intriguing to note that Bezalel and Oholiab, those cunning master craftsmen, were empowered with 'the ability to teach others'. It raises the prospect that what they were 'teaching' was not so much the skill of fashioning pieces of wood into a box, {i.e.,'Ark of the Covenant'} but the secrets of the ancient mysteries - the secrets of ancient wisdom as it was perceived.

Analogy?..."Claudio also prepared to present another form of knowledge based upon the work of the Russian Sufi Gurdjieff. This knowledge came from what is called the Enneagram, a system of knowledge that ties human transformation to sound and music. Claudio was about to present a little known aspect of this knowledge by which the human personality could be broken down into twenty-seven forms. His purpose in doing this was simple: to give the industrial world a tool with which they could get off the wheel of ''ego types'' and enter the higher world of enlightenment. Doing so, he believed, would begin to change the entire world by bringing us out of this materialistic life we lead, so we could enter into the higher chakras and extended human potential." ['Serpent of Light Beyond 2012']. Try ''27''.

Analogy with same intent..."And so to the songs themselves. Geographically the examples examined range from the far West of Cornwall through the whole peninsula of South-west England. One or two songs are drawn from counties bordering this region such as Gloucestershire, and from Wiltshire and the White Horse area where counties meet...To draw upon West Country songs is, in effect, to draw upon local variants of British songs, but their particular value lies in their link with ancient ritual practices, a link shown in the symbolism of the songs themselves and their music. A similar treatment of Eastern and North-eastern English songs would probably show a certain amount of Norse influence, but the level of symbolism found in these songs in general is deeper than that of specific religions and cults, and points to the overall pattern of images behind all 'magical' and religious thinking...Lore of this sort never opens broad and easy paths of thought, but after innumerable meanderings and branchings leads to a simple pattern of ritual and 'mystical' concepts, where the various separate routes merge together."

N.B.
