When the levee breaks

Hello peoples of the planet!

This blog will be discussing the worldwide legend of the mill and mill stone,and what it all means.

First though,as promised in the last blog,we will continue on with the connections between the weeping virgin (Venus/Isis) and old father time. (Saturn/Satan)

Taking a closer look at the bible account of the Feast of Tabernacles or Festival of Booths…..Sukkot.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sukkot

This festival is celebrated in the Hebrew month of Tishri,which corresponds in our calendar to late September till late October. (see the wiki entry on Sukkot above)

Late September till late October belongs to one sign of the zodiac,that being the sign of Libra!

libra-zodiac-horoscope-dates-1

If you’ve been following along the last few blogs,you will know that the sign of Libra is ruled by Venus,and Saturn is exalted in Libra.

https://www.quora.com/What-planet-rules-Libra

That alone tells us there is the link between the two,Saturn/Satan (Old father time) and Venus/Isis (the weeping virgin) in Libra.

The word  Virgin “Almah” in the bible doesn’t necessarily mean a woman who has not had intercourse.

http://outreachjudaism.org/alma-virgin/

The word “Almah” can also mean maiden/young woman.

The “weeping” in the term “weeping virgin,” can also mean a menstruating woman/maiden.(symbolism contains many meanings.)

It also means the end of the harvest in the signs of Virgo/Libra,hence the broken pillar on the statue. (Virgo weeps for the Sun/Mars falling back into autumn and winter at Libra (crying for things past/crying for The Sun as he leaves his throne at the summer solstice,where he lost his head in the personification of John the Baptist) as Saturn (old father time/grim reaper) exalts or arrives on the scene himself.

If you know the story of Isis and Osiris,you will know that she cried over a broken pillar also,that pillar being the penis of her husband Osiris.

Isn’t it interesting that another name for the penis is the “member” and Isis re”members” Osiris in the story. (more in a later blog)

The bible talks about the weeping women at Ezekiel 8:14

“He brought me to the north gate of the Lord’s Temple, and some women were sitting there, weeping for the god Tammuz.”

Tammuz is the Sun at the summer solstice and those women are again crying over the suns declining strength,or the softening male member after it being at the most high. (erection)

godhead-6-biblical-911-33-638

However while the Sun/Mars is in his decline,Saturn is on the up and up as is the feminine part of the cycle….Saturn and the virgin/maiden are about to get together,and this is celebrated at the festival of booths.

BA21

The Hebrew name for the festival of booths is “Succoth Benoth” meaning “booths of daughters.” (or prostitutes.)

http://biblehub.com/topical/s/succoth-benoth.htm

Daughters/women in booths/prostitutes?

Could there be some sexual shenanigans going on here with Saturn and Venus?

Yes!

http://biblehub.com/commentaries/2_kings/17-30.htm

The word “Benoth”  in Succoth Benoth means “Venus.”

https://books.google.co.uk/books?id=r_VSAAAAYAAJ&pg=PA402&lpg=PA402&dq=benoth+venus&source=bl&ots=tv3qe7Z0gl&sig=fWeWSHuN_2sWT_fQU_PLGJu7Lsw&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjw7OGbqInOAhVIJcAKHSmRDTQQ6AEIJTAB#v=onepage&q=benoth%20venus&f=false

Now we have the weeping virgin,what about old father time?

Well,the “Succoth” of Succoth Benoth is  connected with Saturn!

http://www.abarim-publications.com/Meaning/Succoth-benoth.html#.V5M_V6KHhdB

(Interestingly,the booth or box shape is also connected to Saturn..see the cube of space in earlier blogs.)

James Ballantyne Hannay in his book “sex symbolism in religion” tells us that all nations round about were invited to the big one,the party of the year…sexy time!

Zechariah 14:16

“Then the survivors from all the nations that have attacked Jerusalem will go up year after year to worship the King, the LORD Almighty, and to celebrate the Festival of Tabernacles.”

The festival of booths was a sex festival in the sign of Libra,where Saturn and Venus are together,just as the account in Genesis talks of the tree of Knowledge,the apple and the fall.

The bible story has Saturn/Satan/Serpent/Snake enticing Eve/Venus to come and eat of the fruit! (sexual act).

It was the ancient Jewish version of a sexual free for all commune for a week.

It’s following nature and the zodiac cycle,it’s not good or bad….we only perceive them to be so from our viewpoint/indoctrination.

In Aries (spring equinox) the Lamb/Sun comes to meet his chaste bride/full moon dressed in white (for the 6 months of light)….however at the autumnal equinox,she turns into sexy Venus and becomes frisky Babylon the Great (for 6 months of darkness) until God puts a stop to her shenanigans and brings the balance back again.

The zodiac helps all of the riddles in the bible to unravel and…ahem…expose themselves!

The colour of Venus is green in alchemy….and with all that said….it sounds like it was a bit of a sukkot sizzler back then!

sukkotsizzle_65
Notice the girl in green (Venus) is holding the four species,the lemony looking thing is called an etrog,representing the feminine principle/breast/womb and the lulav in her left hand consisting of three items the lulav,hadass and aravah which represent the two testicles and erect penis,it is the opposite ritual from the spring equinox which is the pure and holy marriage…this festival is of anything goes. The virgin becomes the harlot in autumn time of the cycle…Babylon the Great in revelations the mother of all harlots.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Four_species

https://books.google.co.uk/books?id=3zPv2auAVAYC&pg=PA150&lpg=PA150&dq=lulav-and-etrog+penis&source=bl&ots=Ychax6YrvH&sig=8itSYOUVmSAjXwVJrjI1eQrnyhI&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwij_PbS-JPOAhVKIMAKHcJSA5QQ6AEIMzAE#v=onepage&q=lulav-and-etrog%20penis&f=false

Notice in the song above,they sing about shaking the lulav in six directions and then back to the centre…..see the blog “at sixes and sevens” for more on that.

Remember this,it’s only offensive to our sensibilities nowadays because of our indoctrination from birth,just as to a Mormon….drinking coffee or tea is a no no!

To a JW taking a blood transfusion is wrong!

Drinking alcohol in Saudi Arabia can get you flogged and off to prison.

Scientologists will never go near a psychiatrist.

Humans are so programmable!

Before this blog gets underway,I would also like to further expose the deceitful leaders of the JW’s,who call themselves the “Governing body.”

They’re not the biblical “faithful and discreet slave”,they’re very naughty boys!

(although not naughty in the sexual way above,more like naughty liars,deceiving their duped adherents….who receive a different type of shafting than at Succoth Benoth)

Look at the poor kids in this Awake magazine.

The Watchtower society proudly proclaim that all of the kids died “putting God first.”

may26-94-aw
This is but a fraction of JW’s who have died since the Watchtower society banned blood in 1945.

However this video shows in under 2 minutes the hypocrisy/flip flops and lies going on in the organization,this time regarding their blood policy.

Thanks goes to Cappy for the video!

In 1994 the Awake magazine said this.

“In former times thousands of youths died for putting God first. They are still doing it, only today the drama is played out in hospitals and courtrooms, with blood transfusions the issue.” Awake! 1994 May 22 p.2

Then four years later they say this!

Watchtower December 1st 1998 page 14 in the article “Defending our faith.”

“Jehovah’s witnesses have been targets of false accusations-bare faced lies and twisted presentations of their beliefs…The accusation that numerous children of Jehovah’s witnesses die as a result of refusing blood transfusions is totally unfounded.”

So there you have it,on one hand they are parading the fact that children are dying bravely for their stand against taking blood,and then four years later say that the accusation that numerous children die from not taking blood is “unfounded.”

Think of the poor people stuck in there,most ,but not all,blind to their organizations flip flopping and the fact that people are losing their life for a lie.

Yet the very book they claim to follow says this….

Matthew 12:7 “However, if YOU had understood what this means, ‘I want mercy, and not sacrifice,’ YOU would not have condemned the guiltless ones.”

Let’s get going on this blog.

The strong giant, Samson. Macmillan poster. Original poster for sale for £50 including VAT and postage within the UK. Image not available for licensing.

 

Samson (Mars/the Sun) is betrayed by Delilah the cunning/dark/female/eve/enchantress/the sinister/left-handed/siren/Venus calling him to the rocks of his doom and he eventually ends up down at Gaza (the goat) Capricorn…the midnight of the year.

The winter solstice is a time of merriment and parties (Christmas and New Year)….and on cue,there is a party going on at Gaza and Samson is taking centre stage.

Judges 16:23,24

“Now the rulers of the Philistines assembled to offer a great sacrifice to Dagon their god and to celebrate, saying, “Our god has delivered Samson, our enemy, into our hands.”While they were in high spirits, they shouted, “Bring out Samson to entertain us.” So they called Samson out of the prison, and he performed for them. When they stood him among the pillars.”

And verses 29,30.

“Then Samson reached toward the two central pillars on which the temple stood. Bracing himself against them, his right hand on the one and his left hand on the other. Samson said, “Let me die with the Philistines!” Then he pushed with all his might, and down came the temple on the rulers and all the people in it. Thus he killed many more when he died than while he lived.”

Samson literally brings the house down on all!

This is the midnight of the year,when the old day gives way to the new.The old year dies and the new one is born a babe…a cycle has completed,the snake has eaten its tail.

This gives us a glimpse into the workings of the cycle,when the cycle ends it is usually party time,people are too distracted partying to notice that the house is about to collapse on them,they cannot see the writing on the wall,Belshazzar did not take note at his party also.

There was another strange activity happening with Samson before his death at verse 21.

“Then the Philistines seized him, gouged out his eyes and took him down to Gaza. Binding him with bronze shackles, they set him to grinding grain in the prison.”

Samson grinds grain in prison as shown in this painting.

This grinding mill motif is seen in myths worldwide.

In the introduction of the book Hamlet’s Mill it says this about a particular mill that ground out three things.

Amlodhi (HAMLET) was identified, in the crude and vivid imagery of the Norse, by the ownership of a fabled mill which, in his own time, ground out peace and plenty. Later, in decaying times, it ground out salt; and now finally, having landed at the bottom of the sea, it is grinding rock and sand, creating a vast whirlpool, the Maelstrom (i.e., the grinding stream, from the verb mala, “to grind”), which is supposed to be a way to the land of the dead. This imagery stands, as the evidence develops, for an astronomical process, the secular shifting of the sun through the signs of the zodiac which determines world-ages, each numbering thousands of years. Each age brings a World Era, a Twilight of the Gods. Great structures collapse; pillars topple which supported the great fabric; floods and cataclysms herald the shaping of a new world.

The image of the mill and its owner yielded elsewhere to more sophisticated ones, more adherent to celestial events. In Plato’s powerful mind, the figure stood out as the Craftsman God, the Demi­urge, who shaped the heavens; but even Plato did not escape the idea he had inherited, of catastrophes and the periodic rebuilding of the world.

Tradition will show that the measures of a new world had to be procured from the depths of the celestial ocean and tuned with the measures from above, dictated by the “Seven Sages,” as they are often cryptically mentioned in India and elsewhere. They turn out to be the Seven Stars of Ursa, which are normative in all cosmological alignments on the starry sphere. These dominant stars of the Far North are peculiarly but systematically linked with those which are considered the operative powers of the cosmos, that is, the planets as they move in different placements and configurations along the zodiac. The ancient Pythagoreans, in their conventional language, called the two Bears the Hands of Rhea (the Lady of Turning Heaven), and called the planets the Hounds of Persephone, Queen of the Underworld. Far away to the south, the mysterious ship Argo with its Pilot star held the depths of the past; and the Galaxy was the Bridge out of Time. These notions appear to have been common doctrine in the age before history-all over the belt of high civilizations around our globe. They also seem to have been born of the great intellectual and technological revolution of the late Neolithic period.

Every cycle has a part of it where the old mill wheel falls off as it moves from age to age and the whole house comes crashing down.

The first wheel grinds out plenty.

The next wheel grinds out salt.

The last wheel is thrown into the sea where it causes a maelstrom.(Maelstrom literally meaning “mill stream.”)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Whirlpool#Etymology

potc-maelstrom_6852

Strangely the book of revelation talks about a great millstone also.

Rev 18: 21

And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast [it] into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all.

It is the millstone that comes crashing down,causing a maelstrom that brings down the world structure of Babylon,(the feminine force in nature that has sold herself/prostituted/contracted herself out to her lovers),rather than the pure woman who holds the child lovingly in her arms.

Remember Babylon the great sits by many waters…not a good place to be when the swirling mill stone is thrown into them.

Again it’s not evil,just the contrasting force to the perceived (at our level) good feminine force.

Nature out of balance! (Koyaanisqatsi) and natures own way of bringing the balance back…everything has it’s tides!

Her lovers have also come to their doom,at cosmic and other levels.Adam and Eve are again collapsed and what was Malkuth becomes Keter.

The searched for kingdom now becomes the new crown (Malkuth means kingdom and Keter means crown).

(Seek first the kingdom,then you shall receive your crown and become Kings and Priests)

Adam and Eve are the two pillars on the tree of life which are collapsed for the new Adam and Eve (male and female polarities) to take their place,as they go to the new tree of life.

Anybody that watched the film “Knowing” (gnosis) will understand that is what the ending is showing.

The older order is collapsed and the new polarities go to the new Eden.

This is what Aleister Crowley means when he says this.

“By a flick of the wrist, she can be transmuted to appear as the original Yod, and repeat the whole process from the beginning.”

Notice he says this at the bottom of the page.

The fool tarot card in the Thoth deck has the fool coming out from the 3 swirls. (the final “Heh” swirl becomes the new kingdom in his heart.

Fool
The three large swirls are the swirls caused by the three “mill stones” of the age which gives birth to him. The fool is the new child born to us,the same child as held in the arms of the woman with the twelve stars in revelation…foolish/childlike,yet full of vigour as the new dawn has arrived.

This legend of the mill/potters wheel is told throughout the world (Also think of Judas buried in the potters field)

Let’s have a look at some of the legends.

Notice again the three mills…wealth,salt and maelstrom.

The Mill of Wealth

King Fróði of Denmark is renowned for his peace and his wealth. He buys two strong slave girls Fenja and Menja from Sweden. The quernstones that are to form Grotti are found in Denmark and are given to Fróði by a man with a giant’s name (Hengikjøptr) (SnE). In Grs 10–12 Fenja and Menja claim to have discovered these millstones long ago. They caused earthquakes when they dislodged the stones from the earth. Grotti would produce whatever the grinder bade. No one but Fenja and Menja was strong enough to turn it.

Odense Braun (1)

Fróði made the giantesses grind gold, peace and prosperity. He granted them almost no rest. They sang Grottasøngr as they worked. Furious at Fróði’s cruelty to them they ground out an army, and a sea-king Mýsingr came and slew Fróði (SnE); in Grs there is merely a foretelling of Fróði’s overthrow. The quern breaks, and the milling must stop (Grs). The end of Fróði’s reign is marked by thunderings and lightnings, earthquakes, the disappearance of the sun, and the upsetting of prognostications.  Thus Fróði’s peace came to an end.

The Salt Mill
Mýsingr takes Grotti, Fenja and Menja. He bids them grind salt. They grind until the excess of salt sinks the ship. This causes the sea’s saltiness.

The Whirlpool Mill
There is now a whirlpool where the sea fell into the eye of the quern. Comparable are traditions about the Mælström, which was regarded as a ‘grinder of ships’, if not a mill.
Of the three motifs, the poem contains only the first; the salt mill and the whirlpool mill may be later additions of common folk tales to the myth. However, the poem focuses on the demise of Frodi after the cracking of the stone, and may have excluded these elements deliberately.
The final whirlpool mill grinding the ships is alluded to in the book of revelation.

“‘Woe! Woe to you, great city,
    where all who had ships on the sea
    became rich through her wealth!
In one hour she has been brought to ruin!’

These three whirlpool/millstones/rotating forces are those represented by the 3 swirling forces at Newgrange.

9bd19f4b3fdb9ad916651355e0a4d43aKether or “the new treetop in the next tree of life” is brought about by the three rings/millstones.

Kether is the new “fool” who comes out of the darkness/womb of the three feminine forces.

Remember the feminine part of the year is ruled by Saturn (hence the dark Satanic mills of Blake) and in the darkest part of the daily/yearly/great yearly cycle the new day arrives,(although not dawn). This dark time when the sun is present but not yet active is the parousia…it is alongside us but not yet in power.

These three dark satanic mills give birth to the New Jerusalem/the new child!

“And was Jerusalem builded here,
Among these dark Satanic Mills?”

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/And_did_those_feet_in_ancient_time#.22Dark_Satanic_Mills.22

Read through the wiki page above and notice that Blake is alluding to more than just the mills of England’s industrial age.

Particularly this passage.

“An alternative theory is that Blake is referring to a mystical concept within his own mythology related to the ancient history of England. Satan’s “mills” are referred to repeatedly in the main poem, and are first described in words which suggest neither industrialism nor ancient megaliths, but rather something more abstract: “the starry Mills of Satan/ Are built beneath the earth and waters of the Mundane Shell…To Mortals thy Mills seem everything, and the Harrow of Shaddai / A scheme of human conduct invisible and incomprehensible”.

Milton_a_Poem,_copy_C,_object_4_(Bentley_4,_Erdman_6,_Keynes_4)_detail-a

Do you grasp what Blake is saying?He is referring to these three sisters/forces…Ain/Ain Soph/Ain Soph Aur…in the stars they are grinding out plenty,on the earth grinding out salt (the salt of the earth) and finally the maelstrom of the sea mill,which grinds out the old and births the new!

Jesus uses the imagery of the millstone being thrown into the sea also at Matthew 18:6

“If anyone causes one of these little ones–those who believe in me–to stumble, it would be better for them to have a large millstone hung around their neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea.

Old father time/Saturn/Satan the ruler of this world,is the one in the wheels within wheels……Saturn truly is the Lord Of The Rings!

Shaddai is Saturn/Satan the shady one…the shadow,who gives the gift of light to all mankind at the winter solstice in the form of Santa giving us the gift of the new Messiah…Jesus at Christmas,the darkest time of the year. Ho Ho Ho!

If any of this makes any sense to you,please,will you explain it to me!….he he!

Thinking Outside The Box.

think-outside-the-box

Hello,fellow peoples of the planet!

Before this blog gets underway,I would again like to talk a little about my former religion…as the title of this blog “Thinking outside the box,” is the last thing any Jehovah’s Witness would be allowed or able to do,without disobeying the organization.

As an example of this,ask any Jehovah’s witness you know, to tell you the date of Jesus’ “presence” or “arrival” on this earth and they will give you one date….1914!

They are constantly told that this 1914 date is a solid fact,and “The Watchtower” has always consistently taught this.Take these examples below.

1/”Jehovah’s witnesses pointed to the year 1914, decades in advance, as marking the start of “the conclusion of the system of things.” Awake! 1973 Jan 22 p.8.

Notice it says in the above passage that “the conclusion of the system of things” started in 1914,and that they pointed to this decades in advance.

2/In 1993…the Watchtower was saying this.

The Watchtower has consistently presented evidence to honesthearted students of Bible prophecy that Jesus’ presence in heavenly Kingdom power began in 1914.” Watchtower 1993 Jan 15 p.5

However,since the rank and file members are not allowed to think outside their box,they are completely hamstrung as to offering any argument against anyone who has an informed/opposite view of things.

In fact Jehovah’s Witnesses actually taught that Jesus arrived in 1874, (not 1914) up until the year 1943! “Not a lot of JW’s know that” (in a Michael Caine voice”) :).

Here are two clippings from 1921/1922 showing they were still teaching that Jesus arrived in 1874 (not 1914) during the 1920’s.(Whereas,now they claim they have consistently taught he arrived in 1914)

1874-watchtower-1922-nov-1-p333
Notice it says Jesus appeared “beyond a doubt” in 1874.

1874-harp-of-god-1921-p231

The book “God’s Kingdom of a Thousand Years Has Approached” (written in 1973) says this at the bottom of page 209 and the top of page 210.

In the year 1943 the Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society published the book “The Truth Shall Make You Free.” This moved forward the end of six thousand years of man’s existence into the decade of the 1970’s. Naturally this did away with the year 1874 C.E. as the date of return of the Lord Jesus Christ and the beginning of his invisible presence or parousia. Page 324 of the above book positively says: “The King’s presence or parousia began in 1914.”” God’s Kingdom of a Thousand Years Has Approached p.209/210.

So according to the above quote they didn’t “do away” with the date of Jesus invisible presence from 1874 to 1914……until 1943!

Note also the use of the word “Naturally,” as if it’s no big deal.Yet Charles Taze Russell(died 1916) and Joseph Franklin Rutherford(died 1942,the year before the change) had no clue about this teaching…it wasn’t “naturally” at all! It was an uprooting of old doctrines and a planting of new doctrines.It was an upheaval!

I certainly never knew any of these teachings all the years I was a Jehovah’s Witness,and I know the vast majority of JW’s have no clue.They are taught that to question or look at any outside evidence,will both “confuse them” and will inevitably bring the wrath of Jehovah upon them.They will be thrown out of the organization.

Friends and family will no longer be able to speak to them.

Now that my friends is living “inside a box.” (a box of the mind).

It reminds me of the book and film “1984” where previous “inconvenient information” is put into the “memory hole.”

MemoryHole

It is a box that sounds so easy to open,it only takes a change of mind after all.

Yet it is the box of the mind,and the vast majority of JW’s will die for their (completely false) beliefs.

They are literally spellbound!…Their mind is “captive to a concept.”

They have a concept/spell or worldview in their minds and imaginations,that is found to be absurd with even the most cursory investigation.

See a previous blog “what’s in a word” for more on how words control our minds.

https://biblodiac.wordpress.com/2015/12/16/rites-and-spells-whats-in-a-word/

Another thing I’d like to bring up,before the blog gets underway is the bible story of David and Bathsheba,and take it from the “literal” to the beautiful myth that it is.

(c) The Bowes Museum; Supplied by The Public Catalogue Foundation

Here’s a few of the verses from the book of 2nd Samuel,chapters 11 and 12 telling the story.

1/”In the spring, at the time when kings go off to war, David sent Joab out with the king’s men and the whole Israelite army. They destroyed the Ammonites and besieged Rabbah. But David remained in Jerusalem.

2/ One evening David got up from his bed and walked around on the roof of the palace. From the roof he saw a woman bathing. The woman was very beautiful, and David sent someone to find out about her. The man said, “She is Bathsheba, the daughter of Eliam and the wife of Uriah the Hittite.” Then David sent messengers to get her. She came to him, and he slept with her. (Now she was purifying herself from her monthly uncleanness.) Then she went back home. The woman conceived and sent word to David, saying, “I am pregnant.”

David,the warrior-king spies the beautiful Bathsheba bathing while out on his roof one night.

He then sends his messengers to bring her to him,which she does and then he proceeds to sleep with her…and then gets her pregnant.

history-of-the-world-part-i1

The only problem is,she’s already married to Uriah,one of David’s most loyal soldiers.

So what does David do?

He orders Uriah be sent to the front line of battle,where he is left to perish,as told in the verses below.

15 “Put Uriah out in front where the fighting is fiercest. Then withdraw from him so he will be struck down and die.”

17 When the men of the city came out and fought against Joab, some of the men in David’s army fell; moreover, Uriah the Hittite died.

After a time of mourning,Bathsheba marries David and they have a son.However,we learn that God isn’t best pleased with this arrangement in verse 27.

“But the thing David had done displeased the Lord.”….(Uh Oh…King David is in trouble!!)

So God sends the prophet Nathan to David,who proceeds to tell him the following story.

“The Lord sent Nathan to David. When he came to him, he said, “There were two men in a certain town, one rich and the other poor. The rich man had a very large number of sheep and cattle, but the poor man had nothing except one little ewe lamb he had bought. He raised it, and it grew up with him and his children. It shared his food, drank from his cup and even slept in his arms. It was like a daughter to him.

“Now a traveler came to the rich man, but the rich man refrained from taking one of his own sheep or cattle to prepare a meal for the traveler who had come to him. Instead, he took the ewe lamb that belonged to the poor man and prepared it for the one who had come to him.”

David burned with anger against the man and said to Nathan, “As surely as the Lord lives, the man who did this must die! He must pay for that lamb four times over, because he did such a thing and had no pity.”

Then Nathan said to David, “You are the man!”

david-and-nathan

David realizes the utter devastation he has caused….as punishment,the son he had with Bathsheba falls ill and dies.(A bit cruel to the innocent child don’t you think)

The thoroughly repentant and chastised David,comforts Bathsheba and they have another son.

24 “Then David comforted his wife Bathsheba, and he went to her and made love to her. She gave birth to a son, and they named him Solomon.”

It’s a pretty gruesome tale of deceit,murder and lust,but not to worry folks…..it isn’t real!

If you’ve been reading any of the previous blogs,you should be getting a grasp of the symbolism going on,because that is what it is…symbolism that tells us great things.

David is Mars….The Warrior King….and Bathsheba is Venus…the beautiful woman!

It is the tale of the two concepts or forces in yet another variation of the story.Whether it be the Knight at arms and the beautiful woman without mercy in the poem of Keats,or Romeo and Juliet in the story by Shakespeare.

Mars is the God of war,as is David the warrior king (Mars rules Aries,the start of spring).If you look again at verse 1 of the above passage of scripture it reads “In the spring, at the time when kings go off to war.

Spring starts in the month of March,and March comes from Mars!So of course they go off to war when Mars is on the scene!

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/March#Origin

Another thing that should help clue you in that we are talking astrology and the seven planets here is the name Bathsheba.

Bathsheba means “daughter of the seven” (The Queen of Sheba,should also mean something to you now)

http://www.biblestudytools.com/dictionary/bath-sheba/

The name “Solomon” means peace/harmony/wholeness…of course it does!

Again we have two of the seven planets contained in his name….Sol (the sun) and Mon (the moon).

When the sun and moon come together we have the holy marriage…the hieros gamos!

The balance of the male and female forces in nature(the two poles). When the two forces are balanced,there is harmony,when one side is stronger than the other,there is disharmony,and in us..bi-polar thinking/or black and white thinking…extremism!

Think of plate spinning,when the plate is balanced and centred,it will stay on the pole,however when the plate goes off balance by the pole not staying in the centre,due to the plate slowing,it is only a matter of time before things come crashing down.

Here are another few symbols of “Solomon”,or harmony/wholeness/peace below.

Cornucopia-Horn-Of-Plenty-Latin-6765-large
This is the cornucopia,or horn of plenty.It symbolizes both the male(the horn) and the female(the opening). And the harmony or fruitfulness due to the balance of the male and female.Also notice the female part of the symbol gives birth to the fruit (obviously).For anybody closely following this blog….the words of Isis(the eternal virgin) should also be of note.”The fruit I have brought forth is the sun.”

We can learn other things from this tale above.

The Messiah came from this family tree,in effect telling us that out of David’s (divides) unspeakable sin….perfection is born.

Out of the worst times,the saviour will come,out of the refuse of the sea,and out of the intense irritation and discomfort of the grit,the oyster will form a pearl.

oyster-pearl

Out of the worst situations in your life,even as a woeful consequence of your own mistakes…at some point the absolute best will arrive,if you keep going,keep your plate spinning! (the book of Job is telling us the same story in another form).

As is the book of Revelations,when it tells us of bad times on earth,yet the lamb is in the distance.(The light inevitably has to return….the cycle of god cannot be broken)

Before we get on to talk about the symbolism of the Hermetic Rose Cross,as promised in the last blog.Let us have another quick link between Isis/The weeping virgin and Saturn(Old Father time),again as has been discussed in the last few blogs.

This time we can see the link between the two on the American dollar.Now on previous blogs we saw that the alchemical colour of Venus and Saturn are respectively green and black.(See table 1 on the website below)

http://occult-advances.org/greatwork.shtml

We see yet another coincidence in that the colours of the dollar bill are green and black (they are called greenbacks).However,that may just be a coincidence..right?However we find more interesting symbolism on the dollar itself….we find the six pointed star of Saturn or Remphan also on the dollar.

great-seal-back-one-dollar-bill-1247480
You can see the stylized star of David above the eagles head.

Saturn is connected with the number 6….Saturn has a hexagon on it’s north pole.

And we have the virgin represented by the actual dollar sign…let’s have a look.

dollar
It looks like two “I”s and an “S.”

Now have a look at the Wikipedia entry below.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dollar_sign#Greek_mythology

If you read the above Wikipedia page you will find that a lot of what is spoken of in this blog…the two pillars etc,are all found in there.

Money is the current (currency) of this world,it is the juice that fuels the machines of commerce.The two pillars above are also the two poles,the Jachin and Boaz,Anode and Cathode.The snake (serpent) is the electricity (orgasm) between the male and female that generates new life.

See the fiery serpents?

And aren’t sperm also like little serpents or snakes? (As above so below..as within so without).

Next blog I will talk about the Succoth-Benoth,or “the festival of booths of daughters” in the bible.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Succoth-benoth

And give an alternative rendering of what it means in the bible,it will also continue the connection between Saturn and Venus/Old father time and the weeping virgin.

And with all that out of the way (phew),finally back to this blog about the Hermetic Rose Cross.

And here it is below in all it’s glory!

HermeticRoseCross

Click on the image to find a little white surprise in the centre of the rose.

The little white dot represents pure existence without size and dimension…it is infinite potentiality.

Kabbalists call this the ain,ain soph,ain soph aur…..three parts of nothingness that cannot be grasped.It is the germ of creation before creation begins.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ein_Sof

It is symbolized in many other ways,by differing peoples..

spiral f3940c11f7fc5d30a7257b079b5fcb16

But the rose and cross all stems from this little white dot.

But if we go even further inside the white point,the mystical teachings tell us that we are actually presented with a white cube.This is where again the 22 Hebrew letters,22 major tarot cards,the 22 connections of the tree of life between the 10 spheres,and also the Sefer Yetzirah come in….and you will hopefully see yet further connections to this amazing rose cross symbol above.

For the cube to even be a cube,a single point needs to spread out into three dimensions…namely up-down.left-right,forward and back…….the three!

The three dimensions then create seven positions (centre and six sides…see the previous blog “at sixes and sevens” for more on this) which give us the seven!

And twelve edges to the cube…….Gives us the twelve!

3+7+12=22!

As long as the cube or box is sealed…the whole of creation is put on hold,and as the amazing Lon Milo Duquette says (from whom I get a lot of this info) “it remains in a state of brooding potentiality.” They are the forest of trees hidden in the depths of the acorn.The inner that produces the outer.

It reminds me of Schrodingers cat…..is the cat in the box alive or dead…it’s only when you open it,or give attention to it,that it will give up it’s secret.It also reminds me of the double slit experiment..or wave particle duality….the waves become particles,only when observed/given attention.

In religion..prayed for!

In magic…incantations.

Bringing something out of the nothing/ain sof by intense thought and yearning!

This Will Mindfuck You: The Double-Slit Experiment

For the cube to initiate creation it must sacrifice itself on a cross,as it pops open like the rose cross above! (again see previous blog for more info).

We must think outside the box for it to happen to us,and when we do we move from potentiality to actuality….the little white cube opens to form the cross of six squares.(can you see this cross above?)

This is also telling us how spells work…and inventions!

When thought is given to the wave (observing),it manifests into this reality and becomes the particle!

Or when an inventor thinks intensely about an idea..and works on it with his hands….it becomes a reality…he has plucked it from the nothing and brought it into the material!

Or as Isis says…(Isis is the darkness)..”The fruit I bring forth is the sun”…she brings things from the darkness of thought into the light of this material existence!

However when we have our “boxing day” and we open the box…it reveals it’s secret treasure for us…it gives us a “gift.”

That gift is the rose of five petals….we have allowed the fifth element to resurrect us from the four elements to the fifth element…and we ourselves become like the Vitruvian man.

embody_healthThis five has symbolized the microcosm from time immemorial(five senses,five fingers,five extremities…head,legs,arms as the pic above shows.

“Every man and woman is a star”

fig1The white dot in the centre is actually like a nail that nails the microcosm(the five of the rose) to the macrocosm(the six squares of the cross).

Adam is made in the image of God etc.

Understanding that the rose of our being is wedded to the cross of the six is the goal of every spiritual seeker…and when we do,we realize that we aren’t a five or six,but an eleven…and again as Mr Duquette says….this is what is called “the great work.”

Behind the rose are four green barbs(you can’t really see them too well in the above pic,but they stand for four directions or “position,time,dimension and space.”).

When it does open,the small rose gives birth to the larger rose consisting of 22 petals,split into 3,7 and 12 leaves.(Again just as the Sefer Yetzirah talks about.)

In the three leaves pictured….the top leaf has the letter “Aleph” on it..the first letter of the Hebrew alphabet..Aleph also corresponds to the element “Air” and “The fool” tarot card.

The leaf on the left has the letter “Mem” on it…it corresponds to the element “Water” and “The hanged man” in the tarot.

The leaf on the right has the letter “Shin,” it is the element of fire and “The Aeon or Last Judgement/Resurrection” card in the tarot. (Isn’t it interesting that the bible says this world will end with fire…as the last one did with water).

We are talking two polarities…fire and water…male and female, and the balance/equator between the two principles!..the wavy line in the yin/yang…..the sine wave!

The secret of creation is in the wave!

Also interesting to note is what the kybalion says about the principle of rhythm.

rhythm

Note also that “aleph” is a yellow petal,”mem” a blue petal,and “shin” a red petal…these are the three primary colours.

Next we have seven petals,corresponding to the 7 planets,and it consists also of the 7 primary and secondary colours of the rainbow (and seven musical notes).

Going anti-clockwise from the 11 o’clock position,they are (letter,planet and tarot card) “Peh,Mars and the Tower”-Resh,The Sun and “The Sun” tarot card-Beth,Mercury and the Magician/Magus”-Daleth,Venus and the Empress-Gimel,the Moon and the High Priestess-Tav (although the above rose cross pic looks like the letter “Cheth” for some reason),Saturn and the World or Universe tarot card….and finally Kaph,Jupiter and the wheel of fortune card.

The last to burst forth are the twelve petals of primary,secondary and intermediate colours…the 12 signs of the zodiac.

Starting from top left and going anti-clockwise,we have the letters Heh,Vav,Zain,Cheth,Teth,Yod,Lamed,Nun,Samekh,Ayin,Tzaddi,Gimel.

These letters correspond respectively with the 12 signs of the zodiac….

Aries,Taurus,Gemini,Cancer,Leo,Virgo,Libra,Scorpio,Sagittarius,Capricorn,Aquarius and Pisces.

And the 12 tarot cards…Emperor,Hierophant,Lovers,Chariot,Strength or lust(for life),Hermit,Adjustment/Justice,Death,Art/Temperance,Devil,Star and Moon.

So we have looked at two roses thus far,the small rose on the small cross,and the large rose…which is also on a larger cross.

The large rose and cross represent concepts,principals,forces and energies of the manifest universe.

The Hebrew mystics invented the four letters YHVH in order to meditate and analyse the vast oneness.(The all)They divided “the all” into four parts,as did all other cultures…4 directions,four winds,four seasons/4 corners of the earth..etc etc.They were either pictured by four animals,people,letters,symbols,and we can see the four worldwide in myths and paintings or carvings.(see previous blogs)

In Kaballah…the four are Atziluth,Briah,yetzirah and Assiah.These are the four levels of the macrocosm.

The microcosm is also divided into the four descending levels of the soul..Chiah…then Neshema,Ruach and Nephesh.

The four elements picture the same idea……Fire,water,air and earth.

And finally in the Tarot as Wands(clubs),Cups(hearts),Swords(spades) and Disks(diamonds).

image-217

The four arms of the large cross each represent one of these concepts..the left arm(red)represents Fire,the right arm(blue)is Water,the top arm(yellow) is Air,the lowest extremity of the bottom arm(green/brown) is Earth…The white square right below the rose is white and represents the fifth element…(ether). It does not belong to any of the suits alone…it pervades all of them,as it pervades everything in creation.

Lon Milo Duquette again tells us that everything consists of the four elements,and gives the illustration of hot magma which consists of fire(heat),water(it flows),earth(by nature) and exudes air (gas and steam).

A lovers quarrel is fiery(explosive),watery(emotions/tears)and airy(swift and communicative).

The “something” that binds the four elements and gives them their varying structure is the fifth element(spirit) and spirit is represented by the pentagram,and sometimes by the letter “e”…the fifth letter.

internet-explorer

The rose cross arms also contain some symbols on them..let’s have a further look!

Notice the pentagrams on each of the arms are all coloured different.They symbolize the five elements.Around each of the pentagrams are the symbols for the five elements,earth,air,fire,water and on top…spirit(the fifth element)

The white part below the centre with the star of David..is the 7 planets….The Sun is in the middle of the star of David…..See the blog sixes and sevens for more info!

Rose_Cross_Lamen.svg

At the extremities of the four arms are the 3 alchemical elements of sulphur,mercury and salt.

See them top left in this diagram.

tumblr_mdlayfbQU21qkd2d5o1_500

Lon Milo Duquette says this about them,quoting Aleister Crowley.salt sulphur mercury

Just as in the game paper,scissors,stone…none of the three have the upper hand,but each can “defeat” the other…the same principle applies to these three universal forces,therefore the cycle cannot become stagnant or stop…it is constantly in flux.One constantly trumps the other.

You will notice they are in different positions on the limbs of the cross,showing this continuous changing or flux.

The three symbols correspond with the three tarot cards..the Magus (Mercury),The Emperor (Sulphur) and the Empress (Salt).

In fact on the Emperor tarot card it shows his body position making the alchemical sign of sulphur…the triangle with the cross beneath.

thoth_emperor_large-694x1024
The two disks and head(another disk behind the head) make the triangle…and the crossed legs make the cross…notice the colours also….Sulphur is fiery,as is the look of the card.

These three principles are recognized in other cultures….look at the “Three Gunas” of Hindu philosophy….. Sattva,Raja and Tamas (interesting name Tamas..and what it stands for… if you’ve been following the blog that is!).

3-gunas-

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gu%E1%B9%87a

“Sattva” is the balance,harmony (Mercury),”Raja” is the active and passionate(Sulphur) and Tamas is the darkness and destructive (Salt). (Hmm..Lot’s wife turned into a pillar of salt..did she not?)

You can see the three principles on the cycle that they bring about on the “Wheel of fortune” tarot card.

10-wheel-of-fortune-tarot-card
See the 3 alchemical symbols in the inner wheel?…they are also represented by the three figures on the outer wheel.The lion at the top (Fire),Anubis (Mercury) at the right..and Typhon (Salt) on the left.

Anubis is sometimes even called “Hermanubis”

You can google the rest of the symbols on the rosy cross for yourself,or even better,try to obtain “the book of Thoth” By Aleister Crowley and “Understanding Aleister Crowley’s book of Thoth” for yourself if you are grasping any of this.It is good to find the hidden meanings and treasures for yourself.

You can find out why all the letters are on the four barbs,and what they stand for…the INRI for instance…first find the outer exoteric meaning…and then the inner hidden esoteric meaning.

And if you got through all of that….thanks for reading!…please share this blog if it might be of interest to anyone.

Cheers!
