Dreaming? About a rebirth?

And/or..."The animus is the unconscious masculinity in the feminine psyche, while the anima represents the unconscious feminine in the masculine psyche. The personifying of such archetypes makes it possible to have a 'discussion' with them without the ego having been swamped by them in a way in which they are indistinguishable from one's own thoughts or moods." [From the book 'The Old Wise Woman'. Mentioned elsewhere].

'Draining the Swamp'? {in the present sense of the word?}.

"How does it feel when you are positive? There is one word for it: powerful. Why do you feel powerful? Because the thought process has reversed the direction of you mind energy which is now expanding, linking up to the cosmic forces. The more positive you are the more energy you are absorbing." [Extract from, chapter 11, 'Mind Magic' by B. Shine].

Understanding that universal 'framework' from the 'oral' tradition up to the present date gives a deeper meaning to the above quotes.

Analogy with same principle - spot the common factor: "In slowing down, you will find healing. None of us can get anywhere in terms of breaking out of the vicious cycle of being what we are or finding something sacred and wonderful about life if we don't create some opportunity internally to slow down, to go deeper into our own center where we will find the great mysteries of life. Here is where this teaching becomes extremely useful because it helps you get into the center while you are in the hurricane. Not just in quiet meditation at dawn, but in the traffic or at the office. When you carry inner observation with you, you are laying the groundwork for building an inner sanctuary within circumstances. This ultimately means consciousness of the 'Divine' in the midst of the chaos that all of our lives have. To one degree or another we are all in the same boat, and we all have the same possibility of finding an oasis..." ['Wisdom of the 4th Way' by Theodore Nottingham].

Question. That word 'divine' again ?

''Boat'' in relation to 'journey'. ''Oasis'' in relation to 'Primordial mound' ?

"The Mysteries taught that the first step of meditation as being 'to see God made manifest in Nature'. If you do not like the word god, change it to whatever that same word means to you. In nearly all the great religions there is the idea of an indwelling spirit of the divine being seen in the visible universe." [Chapter 4,' The Forgotten Mage' by C. Seymour].

"The 'ordinary man' must make a spiritual start somewhere, sometime. The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step. Lao-tze observed."

Question. Footwear optional?

A side step: The program 'The Flying archaeologist : Stonehenge - The Missing Link' /BBC 4 - attempts to understand the reasons for its location....

"This is Hengisbury Head, where the Avon flows into the sea. Dave field is the guru of the archeology along the river. He has a theory that it holds powerful magical symbolism, and that our prehistoric ancestors had a mystical relationship to it." He goes on to talk about finds around springs and there relationship to rivers..."very probable that rivers were sacred...the earliest part of the river reflects life's journey, its youthful and young. Then it grows into middle age, in our sense, around Downton and so on. And then, down here at Christchurch, its almost an old person - its slow and sluggish, as it passes into the sea which is a different world. This might reflect beliefs in their society, their passage through life and so on. So its easy to see how the river can become a symbolic artifact. Very important for life as well as death."

Reverse that psychology to 'see' it in its proper universal context, i.e., any delta is the beginning of that journey BACK to the 'source'.

Something hinted at: "Countless locations around the world have mystical legends that are intriguing because of their inexplicable links to the zodiac, one of which concerns a church in England, the Priory at Christchurch. The memorial garden of the priory has beautiful wrought 'iron' gates depicting the signs of the zodiac...." [Page 35 'The Pilgrims Way'].

somerset

"In the first center, at the base of the spine is the Kundalini or 'Serpent Fire'..." [Page 9 'The Serpent Power' / J. Woodroffe]. And/or ''High on the Hog''? Question. Grassy toed? ''Green Language'' for a 'tongue'? i.e., understand subject material for the picture to 'speak'.

Connect those keys to attempt a mindset.

As one example: The Medway Gap - where the valley is at its widest point - just south of the marshes and the medieval town of Ayles{ford}. Between the Medway Gap and the end of the escarpment at Farnham, the chalk is breached a further three times by the river valleys of the Darenth, Mole and Wey - the waters of which join the Thames and the North sea...At the village of Shere the old toll road leaves the vale and it too ascends the chalk escarpment - and our journey west for the first time crosses the Pilgrims Way since leaving Dover before we enter Guild{ford}. Beyond Guildford - which too was an old turnpike road - we travel to Farnham via the Hog's Back, the distinctive geological feature where the escarpment takes the form of a thin chalk SPINE. The ridge of the Hog's Back drops away either side, offering broad pan-oramic views across the vale and hills....The Hog's Back is an ideal example of a ridgeway with open grassy topped ridge falling away in steep slopes on both sides...It is worth noting that Belloc chose not to use the term ''Pilgrims Way'' - preferring to refer to the North Downs trackways as either the 'Way' or the 'Road'...Others called it the Harroway {Cochrane} i.e.,'the Harroway running from Dover in Kent to Ilchester in Somerset...Harold Massingham called it the Hoary track or Hoar Way....interesting in as much as it not only took in the areas beyond the Henges and Salisbury Plain but also offers its origins as being at Marazion in Cornwall." [Pages 24/27/29/33 'The Pilgrims Way' / D. Bright].

Follow the title of the book.

N.B. ''Green'' mace head made of especially rare flint left behind purposely in Grimes {flint} Caves. And the question is raised as to why so many pigs.

''Probably for ritual reasons but we don't know why''. [ 'Stonehenge: Digging up Britain's Past' / Channel 5 / Series 1. Episode 5].

To get as close to a ''right'' answer beyond just ''feasting'' - connect those keys, i.e.,''high on the hog''. In that INNER sense of the word {Logos}.

green

On the lookout for the 'Green Man'?

Exercise {Put that 'green' language together to connect subject material}: Words like ''Apple teeth'' / ''Giant'' used in relation to 'Hogmagog Hills' as referred to by T. Lethbridge as he attempts to unravel the mystery of Gogmagog - within the book of same title [Page 4].

Hog-manay ?

SIDE NOTE 2: "On Ophel hill a person can view a gigantic mass of bedrock protruding out of the hill. It is 215 feet wide and 22 feet high. On the face of that massive rock either King David, or Solomon, cut huge steps leading to the top of it....

….It has been suggested that the steps lead up to tunnels, passageways {'labyrinths'?} which the people walked through to get up to the surface of the Temple Mount. But there is NO record of these tunnels in all of history. In fact these passages, under Al-Aksa Mosque, are proved to have been constructed after the destruction of the Temple in 70 AD. The massive stairs lead up to the platform. ["The large monumental stairway just to the south of the Double Gate was excavated.] This stairway of 30 steps is 215 feet wide, paved with smoothly trimmed stones, and its FOUNDATION STEPS ARE CUT INTO THE BEDROCK. From a wide plaza below on the south…the STAIRWAY ROSE 22 FEET [sic 22-1/2 feet] to the UPPER STREET [the rampart/platform] in front of the Double Gate" [W. Harold Mare, The Archeology of the Jerusalem Area, p. 154; see also Benjamin Mazar, The Mountain of the Lord].

King David purchased a threshing floor north of, and above, the City of David and on that foundation rock he built an altar to God. And before the altar his son built the House of God and in it he placed the Ark of the Covenant." [www.templemountlocation.com/ophel].

N.B. Two towers also built on that same hill to ''protect a spring''. Enlarged elsewhere. Try Part 4.

Question. Any spring on Glastonbury Hill?

pathContinued: ".....maybe compared to an unexplored mountain peak. Much of the territory on all sides is known, but it has yet to be determined by what precise paths the way to the summit lies, or in what remote heights those fountains spring that well into the mighty 'river' of all subsequent mystical thought......"[Introduction to the book, 'The Bezels of Wisdom'. Mentioned elsewhere].

Al-Qurn?

'Fundamental Symbols: The Universal Language of Sacred Science' / R. Guenon. {N.B. Chapter 30 'The Symbolism of Horns'].

Question. What is the difference between the words ''magic'' {and/or 'magical'} and ''mystical?'' and why are they applied? Enlarged elsewhere. Try Part 4 before those first impressions make one yawn; while 'creating' an inner 'vision' {archetype?} of the armchair and TV set.

Analogy of same..."Did he seek god or the things of god? In all religious endeavour this is the fundamental question. It marks the point of divergence of mysticism and magic...The mystic seeks god. The magician seeks the things of god. The magician uses his intellect, the mystic, his heart. But least this latter seem to sentimental, the mystics endeavour is an absolute act of will - the deliberate quest for the total 'loss of himself in god'. The mystic seeks union with god''. HENCE...''Magic even at its best extends rather than escapes the boundaries of the phenomenal world." [From the book 'The Christ, Psychotherapy and Magic'. Mentioned elsewhere].

''Intellect'' in relation to the Tower of Babel and/or Virgil in relation to Beatrice. Anything? Enlarged elsewhere.

"A river of thoughts''. [Quote / 'pun' taken from the book by Tomberg].

"I stood upon a high mountain, and saw a giant and a dwarf, i heard as it were a voice of thunder and drew nigh to hear. He spake unto me and said, 'I am thou and art i and where - so - ever thou mayest be, i am there. In all i am scattered, and whence - so - ever thou willest, thou gatherest me, and in gathering me, thou gatherest thyself." [The Gospel of Eve].

Try the Sifnos frieze for a deeper {broader?} read {take?} on the same theme.

Continued..."The mountain is a symbol for deep meditation. The Greater Self ['Teacher' link] is seen by the Lessor Self, and the Gnosis of Nature. The Great 'Mother' and the Great 'Father' of all the worlds are within reach." [Link to ''sun'' and ''moon'' symbolism].

Continued..."Build this picture with care, filling in the details, and see what it can teach you. Its meaning is far from obvious and there are at least three planes of being upon which the student can exercise his knowing {cognitive?} faculties in order to grasp those inner meanings." [Chapter 4, 'The Forgotten Mage' by C. Seymour].

'Mans Search for Meaning' / Viktor Frankl.

mace head

Flint mace head {thunder link?} from Knowth in Ireland. 'Spirals' for 'eyes' and 'ears' ? As seen in the program by N. Oliver.

The above three paragraphs a good example of the methods used in the so called ''Mystery'' clubs. Objective analysis [study], of a subject, by way of those universal keys, gives the same result. Can you see those three levels of understanding? If not, return to it later, when more 'information' is learn't. As one has to do in ANY subject. The real question however - if only to this reader - is Why? Why go to all this effort? Riddle / Puzzle masters?

"Few are they who have been able to penetrate this secret of the 'beginning'. As a spiritual commitment, those who have succeeded, have left a token of the existence of this science. By means of riddles or allegories - and especially through theological reflection - they have described the process of work and the phases of becoming, yet without revealing the essential secret." ['Sacred Science' / R. A. Schwaller De Lubicz].

Fulcanelli?

As a {working?} example use those three [aspects?] - to define the following..."Just as the practice of concentration is the ''art of forgetting'' and the practice of profound 'communion', or meditation, is the mastering of the ''art of sleeping'', so does the 'contemplation' of authentic initiation signify the mastering of the ''art of dying''. [Extract from the book by Tomberg]. Further clues in Part 1.

A practical example? Neolithic man 'creating' polished axe heads - over thousands of hours - from flint {hewn/UNhewn?} brought from the tops of mountains as speculated within the program 'History of Ancient Britain' BBC 4, narrated by Neil Oliver - ''Because they say something about what they are." Try ''double axe'' as well as ''flint''.

Landscape equivalent?: "Finally, further investigation of groups of monuments should relate each to the environment as well as to the others in the group. Causeways enclosures often seem to be placed at the boundary of different types of soil and of farming. Some seem to have been placed near sites of more than local economic importance: Maiden Castle {Dorset}, Hambledon Hill and the Windmill Hill group are all near flint quarries, and Bury Hill and Offham are right next to them. We have as yet only fragments of interwoven prehistoric complexes...Windmill Hill has two smaller neighbours, Knapp Hill and Rybury Hill...Knapp Hill and Rybury Hill may have been forts to guard the passes northward from the Vale of Pewsey to the area around Windmill Hill. Likewise, did the Windmill Hill enclosure itself have a ritual relationship with the West Kennet tomb alone..." ['The Pagan Religions of the Ancient British Isles'].

And/or: Kennet in relation to: "It was formerly known as the "Cunnit". The name is likely derived from the Roman settlement at the foot of the valley named Cunetio (within the large village of Mildenhall). The sound of the name seems to be a Celtic British dialect name, preceding the Roman occupation, like the majority of Roman town names in Britain. (The frequent Celtic stem "cun-" means "hound", cf modern Welsh ci, cwn, "dog".) '' [Wiki].

Therefore something of the 'lower'?

Something extra:{and/or refresher}: "What is remarkable about all this is the way that the 'mill' {which continues to serve as an allegory for cosmic processes} stubbornly keeps on resurfacing, all over the world, even where the context has been jumbled or lost....Among the Cherokees, whose name for the Milky Way {our own galaxy} is 'Where the Dog Ran'. In ancient times, according to Cherokee tradition, 'the people in the South had a corn mill', from which meal was stolen {trickster type?} again and again. In due course the owners discovered the thief, a dog, who 'ran off howling to his home in the North' with the meal dropping from his mouth as he ran, and leaving behind a white trail where now we see the Milky Way, which the Cherokee call to this day - ''Where the Dog Ran''...." [Page 253 'Fingerprints of the Gods' / G. Hancock].

Question. Agree or disagree? Understand the parts to define the whole.

Try ''dog' and/or ''Sirius''.

A side step: "Therefore, it is said of Christ by the prophet Ezechiel that his face is like a diamond because it is so attractive and a flint that with a little blow of meditation sparks a fire of love in the heart that is disciplined to receive it." [From the book 'The Third Spiritual Alphabet'. Mentioned elsewhere]. Try ''bosom''.

"Do you know why the grain of mustard seed was used by Jesus in relation to the Kingdom of God? Not, in fact, because of its small size - there are many other types of seed smaller still. This is what i have been told: The mustard seed is the only known seed which is pure, in that it cannot be hybridised or grafted on to any other seed or plant of any other species than its own. In fact it is as inviolable as true faith itself." ['A Man Seen Afar' / W.T.P].

Representational of. Or something else?

SIDE NOTE: "This being held the central place in all the old Mysteries. He was spoken of in ancient India as Vishvakarman, who was the 'Light of the World'; in Persia as Ormuzd; in the Zend-Avesta it is said of Him: ''He will descend to Earth; He will overcome age, death, decay; He will create free decision; then, when the time is ripe for the resurrection of the 'dead', he will have the victory of life - surrounded by Apostles.'' In Egypt he was known as Osiris; in Greece as Apollo; by Moses, as the I AM." ['The Flaming Door']. Coincidence or a meaningful one?

Moses who did not crossover to the 'promised land'. Anything?

bgtrf (2)

The '90 foot' stone recently found at the 'Book binding' store'. ['Curse of Oak Island'].


"If this whole question is studied esoterically, we find that the twelve senses may be divided into seven ''ordinary'' ones {represented with the ''head''} - and five that are less known, and which may be said to be more ''spiritual'', for they are more deeply concealed in our nature. Modern research already recognizes {one somewhat doubtfully} nine senses. The remaining three that are not yet fully recognized, are those that are most deeper concealed: the sense of 'I am'; or of the ego; the sense of Thought; and the sense of Speech." [Same book].

''Ordinary'' in relation to 'intelligence/intellect' { Tower of Babel?}. Those other 'three' in relation to thinking/feeling/willing - if only in the 'spiritual' sense of the word.

Question. What symbol represents the ''senses'' {passions?}. Is it relevant to anything?

"These opposing tendencies are expressions of the duality of human nature which is both objective and subjective. In all human beings such an opposition is at work and leads inevitably to conflict. In the Western world of today this conflict is most severe and bears hardest upon women because Western civilisation lays especial emphasis on the value of the outer, and this fits in more nearly with man's nature than with women's. The feminine spirit is more subjective, more concerned with feelings and relationships than with laws and principles {'Logos'?} of the outer world. And so it happens that the conflict between outer and inner is usually..." [Book by M. Harding].

Moses = 'Laws' ?

Define the parts to understand the whole.

And/or: ''Hebrew letter Tzaddi, named the ''fish hook''....That which pulls the 'fish' {Nun, i.e.,14th letter} OUT of Water {Mem, i.e., 13th letter}….''To hook'' is to draw, to entice, to procure....Has a particular application to the Christian aspects to the Ageless Wisdom, i.e., Jesus chose fishermen for disciples, and promised them that they should become 'fishers of men'...." [Pages 96/159 of the book by P. F. Case. Vol 1]. Try ''153''.

"A discussion of the nature of the feminine principle and the laws which govern it is of vital importance to both men and women today, for, as we have seen, in our western, twentieth-century culture this principle has been neglected and its requirements have been met only by a stereotyped and mechanical observance of conventional customs, while the care and tendence of the life-giving springs, which lie hidden in the depths of nature, have been disregarded. For these sources of spiritual or psychological energy can only be reached - or so the myths and ancient religions say, through a right approach to the feminine essence of nature..." [M. Harding].

Anima or animus?

lllll

Will that 'union' finally take place in the 8th? {edited - 15/1/19}.

As {ONE} example: "How can we embody and integrate all the lessons learned into the very fabric of our being so that we do not have to fear individually or collectively the Great Turning at Hand. Feminine consciousness and wisdom remember {''belly'' link} the cycles of life and energy, that things ebb and flow in a recurrent process. Masculine consciousness and wisdom remind us of the necessity for demarcation and exploration of ever new and evolving realities; they remind us that tradition, LAW, order, and systems provide the vital containment of psychic life. The 'hieros gamos' of our time is this marriage of masculine and feminine, of body and soul, spirit and matter, and the dualities and binaries that make existence discernable and speakable. Intergration of any two principles is never at the expense of either but, on the contrary, is a deep honoring of the two into a new, emergent third {'Son of'?} that could only be born out of the very essence of what has come before in their essential difference. When taken to heart {'grace' link}, this re-visioned 'Saturn' allows us to embrace our 'suffering' as an agent of growth {A}, rather than a negation of meaning {B} or a punishment {C}. Rather than fearing 'Saturn', we begin to work with, to trust, and to love the fate {karma link} with which we participate. Instead of operating from a place of fear and control that leads to oppression and tyranny, we can learn about the cycles of life and the qualities associated with each moment." ['Saturn and the Theoretical Foundations of an Emerging Discipline'. All emphasis, this readers].

Karma {Old Testament link} in relation to ''each moment''. Question. Which of the three {A/B/C} was Moses most associated with? ALL as a means...?

Try the title of the book to 'see' it from the astrology {i.e.,archetypal} and/or {astronomy? i.e.,top/down} point of view.

Latin is often without the inclusion of the verb ''to be,'' so that this sentence is actually saying: ''and in Arcadia, i am.'' [www.philipcoppens.com/arcadia]. Understand this subject to decipher those keys. Start off by placing ''to be'' in the search box. Together with ''We have heard it said, that the dead man continues to feel the pain of death until he is resurrected from his grave.'' [Sufi quote, taken from, chapter 3, The Remembrance of Death and the Afterlife by Al - Ghazali ]. Notice how all the trees are bending in ONE direction. Indicative of the North wind? [i.e., North - South ], If so, then all those characters [ keys], lie in a West - East direction. That index finger on the left hand [recall what the left of anything is indicative of] almost smack bank in the middle [navel] of the picture. Crossover point? Think on it, relative to the symbolism of Sarcophagus. Also 'blue' and 'red' indicative of ''top/down'' and ''bottom/up''. As in the Hebrew symbol. 'Fire' rises. 'Water' descends. Both a representation of something, other than the obvious. Notice the finger of the ''younger'' above that of the ''elder''. One 'horizontal' the other almost 'vertical' - close to a 'crossover' point. Anything? Other clues elsewhere, put Arcadia in the search box.

A change of pace..."The circle universally signifies, a unity, or a continuous, eternal principle in motion. The horizontal line is commonly used to signify the plane of reality or sequential, linear phenomena such as the measurement of time. The vertical line commonly denotes an energetic principle in ascent or descent. These ideas have been expressed from time immemorial in the arts and sciences of diverse human cultures; in Egyptian symbolism they are associated with forms found in natural life, [called Sa, Ankh, Shen, which represent the circle, and horizontal / vertical aspects ]...i.e.,"the figures are composites of the circle and line - ''tied'' together or ''joined'' by woven rope - a device associated metaphorically with the action of knotting, consolidating, or drawing together multiple states of being." [Chapter one, 'The Sacred Tradition in Ancient Egypt']. Think on it relative to all the above as well as the South American equivalent, i.e.,the Inca Khipus. That same link to the Gordian knot.

A heart of stone.

".....the knot [key] will be untied in accordance with the parables which 'god' sets forth for men, and god is the knower of all things,[Quran 24:35] and the veils will lift and shells [key] will shatter, revealing the fine beneath the coarse; the truth will uncover her face." [Taken from the chapter, ''Address to the Reader'', from the book, 'The Secret of Secrets'].

"I wake in the dark to the stirring of birds, a murmur in the trees, a flutter of wings. It is the morning of my birth, the first of many. The past lies knotted in its sheets, asleep." [From 'Awakening Osiris: the Egyptian Book of the Dead' by Normandi Ellis].

"...To meditate is to deepen; it is to go to the heart of things." [Extract from the book by Tomberg. 'Letter 21' ].

Exercise {i.e.,something to ponder on}: "But if you would know the secret principles of Osiris and Isis go back to the primitive symbols, the djed, his true body and her mysteries knot... Her-Bak showed astonishment that to begin with - Isis and Osiris were only represented by the knot {tit} and the column {djed}..." ['Her-Bak: Egyptian Initiate' ]. Coincidence or a meaningful one?

And/or: "Sir, what is the djet? You have said nothing about this."...'Can i speak of the end before the beginning? The djet is the inborn Word, shut up in the lower depths of mortality, awakened, freed and becomes your essential, incorruptible body. This 'awakening' is the mystery of mysteries, the secret of 'resurrection', and i shall only speak of it because it is a link without which the chain would be incomplete. But if the rites of Osiris teach men how to form the 'immortal' body {''double''?} - we teach also that the djet remains 'prisoner' of Earth and Osiris unless Ra comes to deliver it - ''unties the ropes'' and ''undoes the knots''. The two principles Ra-Osiris have been from the beginning the life-givers of the human djed. We symbolize them as the souls of Ra and Osiris shut up in the physical djed or pillar..." [Same book. Emphasis/parenthesis, this readers, with the exception of the quotes in double inverted comma's].

Side note: Underlined sentence in relation to incarnation/reincarnation - in the present moment of the 'Word'.

rrrHence: The two currents of 'vital fire', Ida and Pingala, were called in Egypt the ''soul of Ra'' and ''soul of Osiris''. The uraeus on pharaoh's brow {from 'iar' - that which rises} represents the vital Fire rising up to the frontal center of the forehead...It is symbolised by the well known diadem of Tutankhamon, in which a golden serpent comes up from the back of the neck over to the forehead...." ['The Opening of the Way' / Isha Schwaller de Lubicz].

REFRESHER: 'Juices flowing' {water link. Fresh water?} - in relation to the 'sweat of the brow' = ''fire'' link?

''Golden'' in relation to...'Baptismal of fire'?

Recall the same 'form' but rising on a limestone 'head' - found near Gobekli-tepe. Enlarged elsewhere. Question. Copy cats?

Understanding the difference between the two DEFINES 'tuts' purpose in the universal scheme of things while giving clues to his 'fathers' final burial site. All enlarged elsewhere.

Landscape equivalent? Many bodies found {Ryburgh / Norfolk} in hollowed out Oak timbers that were found to be full of knots. The hypothesis is : ''Wood very poor quality" And/or "Unsuitable for creating quality work" {Therefore} - "These people are clearly not using the best wood for their coffins" And/or "Seems to hark back to very ancient traditions'' And/or "It seems that our ancestors were blending pagan with Christian traditions" And/or "A precious glimpse of a forgotten ritual" Hence the final conclusion being: "Classed as a poor Christian burial site." ['Digging For Britain' Episode 3. Dec.2016].

To arrive at a 'closer to the mark' answer - simply define those universal keys i.e.,to begin with try ''knot'' and ''Oak'' and/or ''undoing''.

A 'knotted' tail?

"This is the key to the secret of 'Resurrection' : there is a continuous ascension of 'beings', beginning with the untying of the knot of the dogmatic faiths, when dogmatic science gives way to the science of vision. The metaphor of the 'knot of belief' is found in Ibn Arabi, and some knowledge of his meaning can shed light of Corbin's use of it here. Chittick writes: The Arabic word, which is typically translated as 'belief' derives from the root - which means to knit, knot or tie; to join together, to convene, to make a contract. The 8th verbal form from the root - as a technical term signifying belief - suggests a knot tied in the heart that determines a persons view of reality. The Shaykh employs the word to refer to all the knotting's that shape understanding; the whole range of cognitions, ideas, theories, doctrines, dogmas, prejudices, perceptions, feelings, and inclinations that allow people to make sense of the world. 'Beliefs' lie at the root of every human thought and action. In the hierarchy of spiritual stations potentially attainable by humans, the pinnacle is the 'Station of NO Station'. From this viewpoint of knowledge, it is clear that to every knot there corresponds a very truth, yet no knot is complete... " [From the book by T. Cheetham]. Try ''station''.

Side note: The word ''station'' {Eastern equivalent,i.e.,in all its subtleties - relative to subject material} used throughout in the book 'Quest for the Red Sulphur'. Enlarged elsewhere.

Red King / White Queen? Enlarged elsewhere.

knot (2)

''knots'' in a different form.

Understanding the above - and/or {simplified} - those universal concepts - gives clues as to such 'information' as: "The jackal-headed vase was called Duamutef, and contained the stomach, and occasionally the large intestine...The real meaning of this name is shown by the way it is written on the sarcophagus of Amenophis II, d*wa*mut*f, in which the hieroglyph 'wa' represents a knot coming untied. 'Mut' {meaning both Mother and Vulture} symbolizes the function of decomposition which takes place in the stomach as in a womb and makes possible the generation of a new life. This is also the function of the jackal, which converts putrefying matter into vital nourishment. This is the first stage of any genesis, and the ''Opener of the Ways''. The same inscription says that Duamutef ''gives the king his heart''. Now, the Egyptian name for the stomach is ra-ib, which means ''gate of the heart''. This mysteries title is explained by the important relation between the heart and stomach etc...'' ['The Opener of the Way' / Page 194/5. Emphasis, this readers ].

Gateway to the heart - window to the soul. Anything? Try ''knot''.

"The resurrection breaks through and overturns the tides of time. As with ALL mysteries, the Christian one happens 'outside' of time....'' [Page 83 'The Western Way'. Vol 2]. As a means....?

Ebb/flow. Tidal/NON-tidal?

Mediterranean and Nile Delta?

N.B. : "Abu Simbel contains the only ''resurrection tools'' found in Egypt.'' Enlarged elsewhere.

End of a journey or 'its' beginning?

Side note: "The human heart and the Notion of the Heart of god in the religion of ancient Egypt is described in the following passage: 'In their hieroglyphs - sacred writing where the image of the thing itself often represents the very word that designates it - the heart was none the less depicted only by an emblem: the vase. Is not the heart of man in fact the vase in which his life is continuously maintained by means of his blood?' It is this vase taken as symbol of the heart - which makes us think of the Holy Grail, the more so because in the case of the Grail...we see also a relationship to the Heart of Christ..." [From the chapter entitled 'The Sacred Heart and the Legend of the Holy Grail' from the book 'Fundamental Symbols' / R. Guenon].

Continued: "Like many other great prophets, Lahiri Mahasaya himself wrote no books, but instructed various disciples in his interpretations of the scriptures. My dear friend Sri Ananda Mohan Lahiri, a late grandson of the master, wrote the following: 'The Bhagavad Gita and other parts of the Mahabharata epic possess several knot-points {vyas-kutas}. Keep the knot-points unquestioned, and we will find only mythical stories of a peculiar and easily misunderstood type. Leave the knot-points unexplained, and we lose a science that India has preserved with superhuman patience after a quest of thousands of years of experiment." [Extract from the book 'Autobiography of a Yogi'. Mentioned elsewhere].

"...and we lose a science..." could be applied to this subject IN GENERAL. As proven; as in the above example; by the application of one of those universal keys that are constantly used throughout; regardless of time or culture; from the dawn of human {thought?} kind.

Link to ''Dark night of the Soul'' i.e.,a realization of something. Represented by some as the 'son of'...Or; in part; as a 'stone',[or 'pearl'] in its physical representation... as the 'start' of something. A process begun. The end of which = ''The midnight sun'' {sun of?}. Finally ask of yourself, that bigger question. WHY. Why go to all this effort?

Analogy of same..."How then may the multitudes be helped by 'yoga', if not through study in their homes...The only alternative is that the 'average man' be ignored and left without yoga knowledge. Such is not gods plan for the new age. Babaji has promised to guard and guide all sincere Kriya Yogis in their path toward their goal. Hundreds of thousands, not dozens, of Kriya Yogis are needed to bring into manifestation the world of peace {'1000 years' link etc, - enlarged elsewhere}, and plenty that awaits, when they have made the proper effort to reestablish their status as ''Sons of'' the Divine Father. " [From the book 'Autobiography of a Yogi'].

N.B. ''Yoga'' being only one aspect {one pathway} to that final understanding. The methods {keys?} used however, are in one way or another from within those universal ones. Enlarged throughout. Can you 'see' it yet?

"What is understood intellectually through books and study can be experienced directly through Siddha Yoga." [Chapter 24, 'Play of Consciousness'. Mentioned elsewhere].

 

 

"As he himself points out in one of the talks recorded in this book, the vitality of any teaching depends upon the combination of an unchanging foundation of Truth and a constantly varying superstructure of ideas and methods." [Preface to the book ' Long Pilgrimage: The Life and Teaching of Shivapuri Baba' by J. Bennett]. Try ''method''.

Recall St. Augustine's similar use of {i.e.,in relation to 'superstructure of ideas'}.

The real questions, however, remain the same.

Practical example {if only in the 'Eastern' sense of the 'word' ... ['higher' keys]..."Once while i was in Tandraloka,['altered' state link. Representational of], the secret of my vision of Siddhaloka was revealed to me. Siddhaloka [in situ. Lower level of], is perfectly real and exists for anyone who attains perfection, whatever his religion. The golden lotus that fell on my head was a gift, [ use the search box]...a blessing full of divine grace, from Siddhaloka. The 'blue star' in which i had 'traveled' is found in the sahasrara [at the crown of the head; of which; this culture identifies as something 1000 petaled. A metaphor for higher consciousness. Nothing else], of every creature...

templar.....Its brilliance can vary, but its size is the same . And it is also by means of this 'star' that the individual soul passes from one body to another in the cycle of birth and rebirth. However many times a man is burned or buried, the blue star will always stay the same. It leaves the body at death, but stays at the place of death for 'eleven' days. [Link to the ''eleventh hour.'' This readers input]. Afterward, [link to the 'twelfth hour'], according to destiny, it carries the soul with its sins and virtues to different worlds. The blue star is the 'self propelled vehicle' of the individual soul. When the individual is born again, the blue star is born with it. When the star exploded, my cycle of coming and going had ended. The vehicle had broken down, so how could i come and go anymore? This breaking may also be called the piercing of the knot of the heart. In Tandraloka i learned that all the karma of my previous births had been cancelled out, and as i learned this, the whole world immediately changed for me. All these experiences were not under my control but under the control of the inner Shakti, because Shakti is completely independent." [Chapter 26, 'Play of Consciousness'. Mentioned elsewhere]. Eastern equivalent of incarnation relative to reincarnation {in the Macro sense of the word}. But try ''bluestar'' and/or ''morning glory'' for something in the Micro sense of the word.

Shakti = the female creative force personified. [Extract from the book on Paramahansa Yogananda]. Question. Shadow or Anima archetype?

Yet another example - but now from a different time period and culture - yet it explains the above experience - it explains what it represents - because those keys are UNIVERSAL.

hygs"The 'god' symbolic of the Third order of the Silver Star, is the Egyptian god Horus, particular in his child aspect or form as Hoor-pa-kratt, who is Harpocrates in Greek mythology. He is the Lord of Silence, the Innocent Babe in the Egg of Blue, or the 'crowned child upon the lotus', and represents the secret self of every person, that is their silent self within. To truly understand this Silent Self is the universal key to every mystery of 'magic' and 'mysticism'. He is the silent watcher within {'guardian of the gate' link}, our eternal self, beyond our mental and physical apparatus, {i.e.,that which we need in order to define anything, regardless of where we may find ourselves}. He represents the god of limitless light within. The great work or 'Magnus Opus' is to become enlightened to our true self by way of our True Will. This great work is symbolized; in one form; by the blending of the Pentagram {five} with the Hexagram {six}, and its 'sacred' number is eleven. It is also symbolized as the Rosy Cross. The Rose {having five ''petals''} is synonymous with the former while the cross with the later. To unite the rose and the cross is the equilibration of the 5 and 6, {Leo/Virgo?} - which is another way of describing the great work, though on a lower plane of existence." [Extract from the book 'The Cosmic Trigger' Vol 1, by R. A. Wilson]. REMEMBER - Metaphorically speaking!

"The day he wills, he is set on the path to freedom. To long has he hearkened to the dank pessimism of his ''dust-thou-art'' counselors..." Quote by Paramahansa Yogananda. Page 476.

'Will' in relation to ''fire''.

nhyN.B. ''magic'' = a potential - still latent; still/yet to be realised. ''Mysticism'' = result of. The realisation of something, i.e., in the 'spiritual' sense of the word,i.e.,eureka moments of same - relative to this subject. Hence the meaning of the following..."Crowley once said that the 'magicians' sole aim was to interpret his own 'magical' record {i.e.,dreams and/or visions and therefore and/or archetypes/keys}, and after many years i have come to agree with him." Emphasis, this readers. Enlarged elsewhere and throughout.

Sufi equivalent..."This first chapter is entitled 'The Chapter on Samadhi, or cognitive absorption'. The word 'Yoga' in this sutra {i.e., sutras of Patanjali} refers to the state of Samadhi. Yoga means to unite or yoke together. Samadhi is a state of consciousness in which awareness results in an elevated state of consciousness often referred to as spiritual." [From the book by R. Kurczak]. Get it? Try ''cognitive'' in Part 1.

Question. How simple yet profound? Defines the ''whole'' from its parts?

Apply the above { i.e.,by way of ones ''cognitive faculty''} to understand ''yoke'' in the greater {higher/lower?} scheme of things - if only in to give one a 'direction' for further enquiries.

'The Christ, Psychotherapy and Magic' by A. Duncan.

"The use of metaphor is well known in psychotherapy as a means of circumventing the conscious mind," i.e.,as an example - 'the college which is everywhere visible, but hidden from the eyes of men'. " [Extract from the book 'The Magister' by M. Katz].

... You may know the old proverb...'If you want to conceal something successfully, hide it in plain sight".

''The 'eyes of the soul' of which St. Teresa speaks are what we call in modern Hermeticism the 'lotus flowers' or simply 'lotuses', and what Hindu yoga names 'chakra centers' or 'chakras'. "

greenA {working?} example.."On the second night, we arrived in the heart of a green, hilly valley. It was warm and inviting, as children, dogs, and young men ran to our bus to see who had come from all over the world to this tiny island separating Antarctica from the rest of the Pacific Ocean. We were as curious as they were as to what was about to happen. They told us later they had never seen so many people, especially from so many different countries. And we have never seen anyone that looked like them. From ancient times, the Waitaha have tattooed their faces and bodies, creating images of both beauty and fear. To meet them on the street would cause most people to try to protect themselves, but if you meet them in the heart, theirs is a beauty that rivals even lotus flowers." ['Serpent of Light Beyond 2012'].

''Beauty and fear''...in relation to positive/negative. Those universal keys represented within those tattoo's. The author defining Lemuria {south} in relation to Atlantis {north} in order to ''tell a story'' {the 'revelation' of something} - of the importance of the Kundalini {''serpent''} in the worldly {macro} sense of the word. Hence the title of the book. Enlarged elsewhere.

'The Island of the Lotus'. The first island Odysseus 'arrives' at on his 'return' to his homeland. Coincidence or a meaningful one?

"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].

"...To meditate is to deepen; it is to go to the heart of things." [Extract from the book by Tomberg. 'Letter 21' ].

'Mans Search for Meaning' / Viktor Frankl.

'Silence is golden.' Link to the ''golden child'' - representational of.

A {working?} example: "...BUT the worst effect of all these new impulses has been the nervous imbalance which cannot tolerate silence or inactivity. These 'two' pillars of meditation, without which one can have no true intuition or spiritual experience. It may be objected that many inspirations, inventions, and even spiritual conversions have happened suddenly, without any preceding meditation; but the objection is unfounded because, however sudden a flash of intuition, it can only be perceived by one in a receptive state, that is one capable of catching the moment of inspiration and allowing it to gestate in attentive silence." ['The Opening of the Way'].

Question. What symbol can represent it?

"Is not silence the very voice of 'Great Spirit' ? Black Elk. [Emphasis, this readers].

"The destiny of man, as we have said, is to make or create himself. He is, and he will be the son of his works, both for time and eternity." Quote by E. Levi.

First representation of father and son in the pacific region. Question. When/where was the first representation of same in the Atlantic region and/or the Mediterranean one?

"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].

"Here is another example, this time from the domain of esoteric experience. As we have already mentioned, reincarnation - successive lives of the same human individuality - is a fact of 'experience', as are the successive periods of wakefulness belonging to the day, which are interrupted by sleep at night. Buddha recognized the fact of reincarnation as such, but he considered it regrettable. This is why the aim of the eightfold path which he taught is to put an end to reincarnation. Because nirvana is the end of successive terrestrial lives. Thus Buddha recognized and at the same time denied the fact of reincarnation. He recognized it as fact and denied it as ideal. Because facts are transitory; they come and go. There was a time when there was no reincarnation; there will be a time when it will no longer be. Reincarnation only commenced after the Fall and it will cease with Reintegration. It is therefore not eternal, and therefore not an ideal." [Taken from the book by Tomberg. 'Letter 5']. Question. Why did ''reincarnation'' only commence after the Fall? If this subject is a valid one - What does it imply? Try ''eight'' to 'see' it from an 'octave' point of view.

N.B. ''Reintegration'' a link to the 'state' ;'form' and/or concept of the New Jerusalem [i.e., in the collective sense]. Question. Fairy story?

Analogy: with same principle {reintegration?} in mind..."The time tested scriptures of the world are one in essence, inspiring man on his upward journey... Utopia must 'spring in the private bosom' before it can flower in civic virtue; inner reforms leading naturally to outer ones. A man who has reformed himself will reform thousands." [From the book 'Autobiography of a Yogi' ].

A working example: "It ascends from the earth to the heaven and again it descends to the earth and receives the force of things superior and inferior..." ['Emerald Tablet'].

Practical example - if only in the 'quick fix' sense of what is being implied above...

"...'My child,' his voice rang out, vibrating into my very soul, 'whenever you enter the door of nirbikalpa samadhi and call on me, i shall come to you in flesh and blood, even as today.' With this celestial promise Sri Yukteswar vanished from my sight...Gone was the sorrow of parting. The pity and grief for his death, long robber of my peace, now fled in stark shame. Bliss poured forth like a fountain through endless, newly opened soul pores. Anciently clogged with disuse, they now widened in purity at the driving flood of ecstasy. My former incarnations appeared before my inward eye in motion - picture like sequence. Good and bad karma of the past was dissolved in the cosmic light shed around me by Master's divine visit." [Extract from the book 'Autobiography of a Yogi' . Mentioned elsewhere].

'Strange Life of Ivan Osokin' / P. D. Ouspensky.

Now in the slow but {methodical?} step by step way - But only AFTER those universal 'keys' {and therefore by implication - this subject} are understood...

"Thus the ''law'' of the struggle for existence that Darwin observed in the domain of biology will one day cede its place to the law of cooperation for existence which 'exits' already in the cooperation of flowering plants and bees, in the cooperation of different cells in an organism, and in cooperation in the human social organism. The end of the ''law'' of the struggle for existence and the future triumph of the law of cooperation for life has been foretold by the prophet Isaiah: 'The wolf shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid, and the calf and the lion and the fatling together, and a little child shall lead them, [Isaiah xi, 6]. This will be because the new "law" - i.e., a profound change in the psychic and physical structure of beings - will replace the old "law", firstly in consciousness, then in desires and affections, then lastly in the organic structure of beings." Try ''child'' in relation to something '''new''. Representational of.

Side note. Moses in relation to ''old law''?

"Since one incarnation on earth cannot possibly be sufficient, the personalty must return again and again in order to achieve the maximum development." [Introduction 'Alchemists Handbook' by F. Albertus].

peace"It is Prometheus advice that Heracles should not attempt to seize the 'Fruits of Paradise' by violence but by request of the aid of the powers that hold the machinery of the universe in balanced motion..." Link to the word ''grace''. Aim and purpose of. Try ''violence/vengeance''.

"The 'fruit' is the source of that drink of 'immortality', of secret knowledge, and of inspiration so highly prized by the gods and so jealously guarded by them." ['Women's Mysteries'. Emphasis, this readers].

"Life is a school. We incarnate to learn. Once all the lessons are learnt, we cease to incarnate........We have reached 'Nirvana.' " [Chapter 7, 'Astral Doorways.' Mentioned elsewhere]. Try Part 4.

Compare to... "Hence the statement that during the prologue, so to say, of the drama of 'creation', or the beginning of the cosmic 'evolution', the universe or the 'Son' lies still concealed "in the Divine Thought", which has not yet penetrated "into the Divine Bosom". ['heart' symbolism link]. This idea note well, is at the root, and forms the origin of all the allegories about the "Sons of God" born of immaculate virgins". [Stanza two, page 61, 'The Secret Doctrine'. Volume one. Mentioned elsewhere]. Look up ''incarnation'' relative to ''reincarnation'' to understand that subtle difference; before those first impressions dictate something else; especially in relation to ''the personality must return again and again..."

A {working?} example: "Skin of a leopard slung across his shoulders {in reference to Paris v Menelaus} = a group of stars below the area of the 'shoulder' of Orion are the spots of the leopard skin.'' Together with : "The easiest of all the astronomical interpretations of a warrior as a constellation is in book 3, when Paris, the Trojan braggart, strides out from the ranks and challenges any of the Greeks to single combat in an attempt to end the war. Great is his terror when the gauntlet is picked up by Menelaus...It is clear from Homer's description of Paris that he is facing left - or towards the east - confronting threatening Menelaus, who, as the constellation of Scorpius, is just appearing over the horizon." ['Homer's Secret Iliad']. Try ''leopard'' and/or ''spot'' and eventually ''Scorpius'' in relation to ''Orion''.

A heart of stone.

stepN.B. The Step Pyramid - the first stone structure in Egypt. In the reign of Djoser. Prior to that - all mud brick. As is the case in the Gilgamesh epic - ALL mud but no stone - ever.

"No architectural profession existed in Mesopotamia; however, scribes drafted and managed construction for the government, nobility, or royalty. The Mesopotamians regarded 'the craft of building' as a divine gift taught to men by the gods..." [Wikipedia/ 'Architecture of Mesopotamia' ].

Analogy? of same..."When we see these stone edifices copy brick ones, it is hard not to speculate that the latter were in turn copied from elaborate tents which had preceded them. The tent implies nomadism, and raises the perennial question, of the origin of the race of the pharaohs." [Extract from the book by L. Lamy].

Imhotep who was known as possibly the first architect. Associated with Djoser. The first 'mortal' to achieve ''kingship'' status. Gilgamesh who failed in his quest. Imhotep, who did not. Mud - Stone. Representation of? Coincidence or a meaningful one? OR nothing more than a conspiracy theory?

"Brick plays an important symbolic role in the ritual of temple foundation, which obeyed very ancient specifications. All the plans always refer to a 'divine' book; thus the temple of Edfu was rebuilt under the Ptolemies according to the ''book of foundations composed by Imhotep, son of Ptah''...'' ['Sacred Science']. Try ''foundation''.

That 'divine' word again.

Question. Any 'gathering' of planets?

"Indeed, for a full understanding, the meaning of the name must be read. It is not sufficient merely to enunciate the name as is usually done. For example, we have said that 'Amon' is the energetic {stellar} milieu for the period when the sun rises in the constellation of Aries at the moment of the vernal equinox. Ptah signifies ''Fire fallen into earth.'' - ''the fall'' - into earth...The reversal of pth {Ptah} into htp {Hotep}, clarifies the meaning of Amen-hotep - the reversal into Amon of the 'Fire fallen into earth' - a spiritualization of that 'fire'... [same book]. Try ''u-turn'' and/or ''hotep'' if only to see depth of material.

Question. Amenhotep {Amon} in relation to Akhenaten {Aten}. As a means to what?

"...Then, in the Memphite myth, when the divine blacksmith Ptah {the Greek Hephaestus} actualized the 'creation' of the world by means of the Desire of his Heart and the Word of his speech.'' [Extract from the book by L. Lamy]. Try ''logos''. Egyptian equivalent. Try ''vulcan''.

"...the anima appears in 'her' proper positive role - that is, as a mediator between the ego and the self." ['Man and his Symbols' / C. Jung].

Question. ''Desire'' in relation to ''her'' ? = 'Intelligence of the Heart'?

"Let the 'creator' know himself to be the builder, and not the building...." Quote by A. Bailey.

Question. What possibilities {if any} are there to explain ''...divine gift taught by the gods,'' {several paragraphs back}, i.e.,as examples - by way of: A 'flying saucer' as speculated in such programs as 'Ancient Aliens' {Satellite TV}. Or by way of those 'altered states' {and/or study} as indicated within this subject material - since the dawn of human kind.

Question 2. Simply as a mental {hypothetical} exercise - Which is the most likely when ALL the available 'information' is assessed?

Question 3. What does that 'end' result REALLY imply?

Plato's works are full of the same esoteric ’stuff’. As explained in such works as ’The Origins of the Christian Mystical Tradition’. By A. Louth. Now using ‘characters’...in the same vein as the figure ‘Hamlet’ does with an audience...but this time with the reader in mind. The main character ’Socrates’ if only for this reader; being more a literal figure than an historical one. Used in the main as its anchor point. Trying to get the readers 'higher' states into motion by way of the 'lower' ones. In fable form. While still using that same framework.

As a side note the author of 'The Christ, Psychotherapy and Magic' does the same, i.e.,applies the same intent - attempting to get the reader to 'see' links between those three subjects within the title of the book while asking the reader to always ask that inner question ''So what?"

Question. Boredom?

Some say he was a member of the Eleusis or Orphic mystery club, [ Plato that is ]. All ‘clubs’ past/present...basically the same. Whether Rosicrucian / Freemasonry / Ex.golden dawn etc. All possess those same opinions. Just a different way of expressing them. The end result being the same. A realization of something. That realization that relates in some form or other to the principle of the Egyptian ma'at. As explained profoundly throughout in such publications as in... 'The Hiram Key'/ Knight and Lomas...from which was built the foundations on what became the very first 'esoteric' club, the prototype of all the rest... the Egyptian equivalent..."The House of Life". [Chapter seven. 'The Future of the Ancient World' J. Naydler].

Think about it , in relation to the meaning of the word 'Pharaoh' together with the 'divine bit', represented [as an example] with the word 'thought' as in the book 'Kabbalah and the age of the Universe', by A. Kaplan.

Those ''foundations'' learned; In the main; by objective analysis. Though in Plato-s era this was helped along with certain ‘supplements’ as researched in such books as ’The Road to Eleusis’. By R.Wasson+others. That objective requirement though, a prerequisite. That eventually led according to some to...’Western scientific research’, i.e., Objective analysis by way of ‘possibilities’. What later became known as Ockhams Razor. [ ‘Afterword’. Same book].

Or ’The Ancient Mysteries’. By M. Meyer. [ Keys / 'Common factors’ to be found]. Hence the link to the very ancient 'The Mysteries of the Thesmophoria', [Isis related]. "The word coming from 'Thesis', with a meaning including our 'thesis of today', and thesmos means 'that which is laid down or established, or instituted", [chapter eight. 'Sirius Mystery']. Think about it ,in relation to the meaning, of one of the two 'pillars' of Hebrew fame, in relation to a 'temple'....relative to the individual.

'The Secrets of Solomon's Temple' by Kevin L. Gest.

"The holiness of place is manifested in a series of concentric circles, [spiral link] at the center of which is the Holy of Holies in Jerusalem. In itself, the Holy Temple is a sort of 'spiritual implement' built precisely according to the instructions of the Torah and the words of the prophets for the purpose of helping to anchor [key] 'holiness' in the material world...that is to say, to serve as a focal point of contact between the unreachable 'Supreme' [the authors word, not mine] holiness and the actuality of place. The overall design of the temple, in all its details from outer courts to ritual objects and vessels, is a kind of projection of the higher world, onto our world. Each part of the temple can, from a certain point of view, be seen as homogeneous with a whole order of worlds beyond us. Or to put it another way, the temple in all its detail is a symbolic model of the chariot; and the holy of holies is the place of revelation of the divine glory, the point of contact, or of intersection ['crossover' link], among the different worlds [A-C] and between one level of existence and another." ['Altered states' link]. Its most basic description...the Micro within the Macro. [R. Steiner book]. Put ''holy'' in the usual box. In all pages. Then try ''chariot''.

That same 'spiral' shape, that has been found in the 'well' shaft on Oak Island. Enlarged elsewhere. Final link to ''horizontal / vertical'' symbolism.

And/or [to evaluate correctly] 'The Mystic Spiral' by Jill Purce.

stoney face

The Green Man in stone. Petrified? A link to those ''lintels'' that 'tie in' those Sarsen ones at Stonehenge. Tongue and groove; normally associated with wood. Two main pathways of light within that structure. Most light and least light. Summer/Winter. Anything implied? And/or 'turning over a new leaf' - as a reference point - on a learning curve? The 'horseshoe' in the middle - representing that ''about turn''?

"The traveler to Egypt today will observe a number of ancient temples reflecting architectural styles from the entire range of accepted Egyptian chronology-- the Old, Middle, and New Kingdoms as well as the Late Period and Graeco- Roman times. But in spite of superficial variations, certain features are consistent, such as the division between the outer and inner courts and the existence of subterranean and roof chambers within the levels of the building. Schwaller de Lubicz discovered that a very complete, though subtle number of features is found in the Egyptian temple which demonstrates the existence of a complex, yet deliberately employed knowledge of sacred building design which he regarded as 'architectonics'. Its aim was the creation of a mechanism by which a focusing 'lens' for both worlds, [link to 'eye' of Horus,i.e.,cognitive faculty. This readers input]...sky and earth...could harmoniously and consciously exchange information and experience. The essential premise of 'architectonics' is that the sacred space occupies a number of dimensions other than the physical. Four dimensions and their reference points have been identified in symbolistic philosophy as the subtle tools employed in the design of the Divine House. Each explains the esoteric features of the Per Neter [''gods''],and the unique, though often inexplicable, design elements of a number of temples." [Chapter four, 'The Sacred Tradition in Ancient Egypt].

The main question to all the above however is...Why go to all this effort?

A 'working' example {with wisdom found within it?}..."The decision to rent a car was paramount, as Thoth eventually had me running all over the island. The land here is so rugged in the 'N/W' area that they have never been able to build a road that completely circles the island; the primary road is in the shape of a horseshoe about '33' miles in length. Wherever i needed to go next always seemed to be at the opposite end of the horseshoe. Every time i would get to one location that 'Thoth' had asked me to go to, he would turn me around and head me back to the other side of the island. I will never forget when i returned the 'car' to the rental people - most bring it back with maybe '60' or '80' miles on it but i had over '800' on mine." ['Serpent of Light Beyond 2012. Emphasis, this readers].

''Thoth'' = wisdom,i.e.,define those keys to 'see' something other than the obvious - BEFORE those two bigger questions are asked.

As is the intent of..."The ceremony felt complete to us, and we entered back into the jungle to return to our hotel. But as we came out of the jungle, the first thing we saw was the Castle Pyramid, and the sight of it made us wont to back up to the top of it one more time... There were four doors into the pyramid at the top. Three of the doors were connected to each other by an interior hallway forming a U-shape. And at the opening of the U, there was one more doorway, facing north, that led inside the U to the very center of the pyramid. Why the Maya arranged the doors this way, i don't know." ['Serpent of Light'].

The author does know. But expects the reader to work it out for his/her self. No such pyramid exists. Recall the equivalent of 'King' Arthur riding through his 'jungle' towards his own 'castle' {Part 1}. That U turn now - because of an understanding - is now possible {representational of}. Hence the link to the word and intention of ''center'' i.e., ''Facing north'' implies from a southern start point. Try ''mandala'' for an alternative viewpoint. While recalling the equivalent at the neolithic site of Gobekli-tepe, i.e.,U shaped stones. Enlarged elsewhere. Coincidence or a meaningful one?

"Its a story at the end of the day - an archetypal story - and that's whats really important - and not the in's and out's of it." ['Forbidden History: In Search of the Real King Arthur' / Narrated by J. Theakston]. Enlarged elsewhere. Try ''archetype''.

"The Kingdom of Heaven is within you. The time has come for external forms and expressions to be left behind. There is no Temple in the heavenly Jerusalem, for religion has no place in Heaven. Man is his own Temple. A mans heart is the altar of god...." [First chapter,{'The inner Quest'} from the book 'The Mind of Christ' {Meditations on Christian Themes} by Anthony Duncan].

Analogy?: "When we read a story, we inhabit it. The covers of the book are like a roof and four walls. What will happen next will take place within the four walls of the story. And this is possible because the stories voice makes everything its own." [John Berger]. Try ''house''.

N.B. 'Pharaoh' = ''High House''. Question. Who {what?} represents 'low' house?

Refresher: "Everyone has an internal thought process: that silent other self who speaks to you; the one you debate with." [First sentence; first paragraph; first page of the book by Q. S. Lam].
