“For everything that is hidden will eventually be brought into the open, and every secret will be brought to light.”
Continued on from my first blog here..
So………Ezekiel and John saw the 4 living creatures,also known in Christianity as “cherubim.”
They are as follows…
Ezekiel also spoke about “wheels within wheels”….(we will come back to the “wheels” in a later blog)
However,it wasn’t only those two bible prophets who used these motifs/symbols.
The four creatures are also seen pictured in other cultures.
Consider the “lamassu” of the Assyrians.
Again the 4 living creatures appear.
The face of a man
Wings of an eagle
Body of lion and bull
The sphinx has the same features also,why would they all identify with the four?
Egyptian,Babylonian and Greek sphinxes all contain the 4 living creatures.
They are even called tetramorphs after these four features,”tetra” meaning “four.”
And once you realize what those 4 creatures represent,you will notice it in all religions in some form or other.
Yin/yang,lotus flower,swastika,the four 4 limbs of the cross,the 4 letters of the name of God. (Tetragrammaton)
I will expand on the connections between all differing religions later in the blog.
We also see this “fourness” in nature. One example would be the 4 seasons.
Spring,summer,autumn and winter.
Or in the “small year” (the day) it becomes morning (spring),afternoon(summer),evening(autumn) and night(winter).
Again the four!
And we see it in us!
Let’s look at the 4 fixed signs of the zodiac.
Taurus the bull.
In the zodiac with its 12 signs,all of the signs represents one of the four elements.
The zodiac sign of Taurus also represents one of the classical elements.
It represents the element of “EARTH”
Leo the lion represents the element of “FIRE”
The eagle of Scorpio represents the element of “WATER.”
And the man of Aquarius represents the element of “AIR” (not water as you would think with the water jar).
Important info folks! The four fixed signs of the zodiac represent the four elements. (As do lots of other things as we will see).
The four elements,earth,air,fire and water are symbolized,and correspond to so many different things.
For instance the four letters of the tetragrammaton also correspond,each one to one of the four elements.
However,you may ask,what does that mean if anything?
This is what has been hidden from us for thousands of years by occult groups.The word “occult” meaning “hidden,” not evil.
These are the “secrets” kept by solemn oaths for thousands of years,now coming to light.
It’s a deep understanding of nature,how it works and recognition of the subtle forces at play.(which mostly goes unnoticed).
The 4 elements symbolized by the 4 living creatures,represent among other numerous things.
The 4 states of matter.
And isn’t it coincidental that the 4 states of matter correspond with the 4 elements.
Solid is the element of “earth.”
liquid corresponds to the element of “water.”
Gas corresponds of course to the element of “air.”
And plasma corresponds to the element of “fire.”
This was a form of ancient science!
The ancients recognized (in all cultures) this fourness,whether it was the four directions (north,south,east and west) and four seasons,four corners of the earth (more about that in a later blog). But they all had their symbols of the four.
Another example…the “lotus flower” is an eastern symbol of the four elements also.
Why a lotus flower?
Well…..a lotus flower has its roots in the EARTH.
it grows through WATER.
out into the AIR.
and looks toward the sun……FIRE. (Giving us the four elements again)
So in yet another culture,the symbol the lotus flower is a symbol of the four elements.
Here’s something to ponder on though,the human spine is referred to as a lotus flower in occult literature
(Here’s a clue….a lotus flower starts in the earth!)
If you google for yourself the connection between esoteric information and this knowledge of the 4 elements,your search should supply you with enough information that this is well known to esoteric societies.
I would like to stress that I want you to look for yourself and verify that these are hidden teachings now coming to the light,with information now at our fingertips.
We can find out and link things in seconds which would have taken years in times past.
In previous times,if you could even read a book,finding another on a similar subject,would have been a difficult task.
Joining the dots would have been almost impossible.And to see the patterns in other cultures signifying the same concepts in their own particular manner,would be out of the reach of most.
However,we are now in the information age,that can help us grasp the patterns.And once you recognize the patterns,you will start noticing these things everywhere.
There is also a “fourness” in things in nature,such as the four seasons,as mentioned before.
But let’s look a little closer at the four seasons.
Two of the seasons are male or projecting out.
These would be spring/summer,where growth happens on the earth.There is an abundance of light and warmth.The light rules the world during these two seasons.
And two female seasons are a “drawing in.” The Autumn and Winter are dark and cold.There is no growth,In fact things start falling apart,i.e the leaves fall from the trees.Darkness now has the upper hand,and rules over the light.
It’s like a breathing out in spring and summer.
Then a breathing in,in autumn/winter.
(And think now why people think the female brought the male to ruin in the Adam and Eve story and all should start to link).
So out of the four elements,two are male,and two are female!
Air and fire are male,and earth and water female.
What about chemistry? Well again it has the “fourness,” this time called “CHON”
The building blocks of life are carbon,hydrogen,oxygen and nitrogen.
Carbon corresponds to EARTH. (You dig up coal and diamonds (carbon) from the earth.)
Hydrogen is WATER. (hydrogen meaning “water generator”)
Oxygen corresponds to the element of AIR.
Nitrogen corresponds with FIRE.
In the fourth section down,Manly Palmer Hall writes the following.
“The water element of the ancient philosophers has been metamorphosed into the hydrogen of modern science; the air has become oxygen; the fire, nitrogen; the earth, carbon.”
The four fundamental forces of physics also contain two male forces and two female,as the four seasons and four states of matter do.
The four fundamental forces of physics are,strong nuclear force,weak nuclear force,electromagnetism and gravity.
Two are “male” forces and two are “female.”
Strong nuclear force and weak nuclear force are male or outward projecting forces,as are spring and summer in the year.
Gravity and electromagnetism are attracting forces,just like autumn and winter.
Strong nuclear force is the element of FIRE
Weak nuclear force is AIR
Gravity is EARTH
Electromagnetism is WATER
You even see the four in a deck of cards due to their occult background.
Spades and Clubs are phallic/male suits.
Hearts and Diamonds are female suits.
The swastika is a symbol of the four elements in motion….swirling and you see the swastika in loads of cultures worldwide.
The 4 limbs of the cross represent the four elements also,and it all comes from the zodiac.
The four elements make the 4 directions on a compass…north,south,east and west
The yin/yang symbol has the four also.
Please take note that the white part has a small black dot inside it.And likewise the black part has a small white circle contained within it.
It’s the 4 again!
This also is the secret of the tetragrammaton(the four letters.)
Two of the letters are male.
“Yod” and “Vav” are both male and correspond to spring/summer,also strong and weak nuclear force,oxygen and nitrogen and fire and air.
The two “heh’s” are female,and equate to autumn/winter,electromagnetism/gravity,carbon/hydrogen and earth/water.
This world is all about those forces…the male and female.
Magnets have a male and female side…the two poles or polarities.
In your electric plug there is a male and female wire…positive/negative.
In atoms,the proton is male and electron female.
In the interaction between positive and negative we see how nature gets things done.
(this is the real meaning of the Song of Solomon.It’s describing the male and female forces of nature,the active and passive,the positive and negative forces).
Light (positive) and darkness (negative) and the interplay between them in nature.
In freemasonry,it’s the symbol of the compass and square.
The compass represents the male and the square represents the female.
And when the two come together…things happen!
Generation happens,the sexual orgasm brings life to the barren “earth” of the female,the egg is fertilized and a new generation comes about through this most holy act….hence the letter “G” in the middle of the male and female.
Do you notice that the compass is like the active male on top and the square like the receptive/passive female in sexual union?
The positive and the negative,the day and the night,the light and the dark come together and sparks fly.
It’s nature and how it works.The ancients weren’t stupid,they understood these forces,and symbolized and pictured them in their own way,according to their own particular culture that is part of the 360 degree spectrum that exists throughout all the earth.
Secret societies have kept this knowledge hidden from the masses (or as they call them ……the profane.)
Not out of malice,because with knowledge comes responsibility.
The profane are those not in the know,they are outside the temple of knowledge.
Harry Potter calls such ones “muggles” but it is the same thing.
“Jews” are those in the know and “Gentiles” are those outside the temple in the courtyard…hence the “court of the gentiles.
(“Profane” means outside the temple)
Hopefully this gives you a glimpse into what the four living creatures stand for.
Now you may understand why the 4 gospel writers are pictured as the above animals also.
Scroll down to “evangelists symbols” on the above page to confirm for yourself.
Matthew is the man
Mark is the lion
Luke is the bull
John is the eagle
It’s a form of ancient science.
The four elements!
There is also a fifth element though(isn’t that a film?)
But I’ll leave that for you to find out for yourself.
Here’s a hint though,its the letter “shin” that inserts itself into the tetragrammaton.
Its also the reason why Aleister Crowley said…”every man and woman is a …”STAR”
He was an occultist who knew the secret teachings,and he had lots of deep insights into this hidden knowledge.
The four elements are also one of the secrets of the Vitruvian man moving from 4 points to the fifth.
Next time I’ll speak about why there are so many 12’s in the scriptures,and what they mean.
Thanks for reading folks!
