In the Country of the Blind….

The one eyed man is king!

In this blog we will find out about Dhritarashtra (the blind king in the Bhagavad Gita) and what he symbolizes.

I also speak about my former blindness as a Jehovah’s witness and yet thinking my eyes were wide open at the time.

And what it means to have a simple or single eye.

 

King James Bible
The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.

Matthew 6:22

Hello fellow peoples of the planet!

I thank you for visiting my wee blog.

Before this blog gets going however………

At the end of the previous blog I said that “Old Man Thames” was “Old man Tammuz” (Thomas) or “Old Father Time” who is in fact Saturn.

Adding further on to that,there is also a part of the Thames river that is called the River “Isis.”

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

And yet again there you have another coincidence,why?

Because Old Father Time (Saturn/Tammuz/Thames) and Isis/Venus/Mary (the eternal virgin) are connected and linked.

img_8722

img_5389
Old Father Time with his scythe,he is the grim reaper (hence his link as being the god of agriculture) and the virgin who is also linked to reaping and the harvest as the young virgins go out to bring in the harvest in the sign of Virgo in August/September.

Why is Isis or the virgin weeping?…more in a later blog.

https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=father+time+weeping+virgin&biw=1536&bih=732&source=lnms&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwi5_O61h8_KAhWFWRQKHSqbDGYQ_AUIBigA&dpr=1.25

It is not a coincidence that the Thames has a stretch of water called the Isis because they are linked.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Isis#History

https://uk.answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20090227120732AA8Zwxe

Old Father Time is Saturn or Satan,linked with the elements earth and water…the feminine elements that correspond to the female and winter/night/darkness/material/dense/cold part of nature.

Earth and Water can also be represented by the land(earth) and the sea(water) and symbolized by the downward facing triangles.

2367d9637c5577a351e112d5d2825914

This is what is being represented by the Thames and Isis rivers and father time and the weeping virgin……earth and water…or matter…and Saturn is the lord of matter….or as the bible says it….the ruler of this world.

In the book of Revelation chapter 10:2 we have another symbol of the two lower elements.

“He was holding a little scroll, which lay open in his hand. He planted his right foot on the sea and his left foot on the land.”

Isis is also Mare and Mare/Mary is the sea as in Weston-super-Mare.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Weston-super-Mare

And Mary or Isis (the virgin) is connected to Saturn/Satan/Old Father Time through law.

Mari-time law…….Mari=Mary/sea/water and Time=Saturn.

In the sign of Libra the two meet also…Venus rules Libra and Saturn is exalted in Libra.

Libra is connected with law….the symbol of courts are the scales of justice and the scales of Libra,weights and measures and balance,then you have Venus on the roof holding the scales,Saturn the tester is represented by the judge…old father time,the devils advocate, saturnine procedures in court,while wearing the long white wig just as Saturn has his long white hair.

In the Garden of Eden,Satan and the virgin are together,Saturn and Virgo

And if you look back a couple of blogs I gave a list of correspondences in the terms and words connecting money and water.

It is Mari-Time law and the law of the sea.

Saturn rules Capricorn symbolized by the sea-goat……again the two elements earth and water.

Goat=earth/Saturn/Chronos and Fish=sea/water/Isis.

il_570xN.368473591_tvd0
AGAIN EARTH AND WATER ARE REPRESENTED IN THE SEA-GOAT OF CAPRICORN. ALSO THE VIRGIN AND SATURN BECAUSE THE SEA GOAT IS BOTH MARY/MARE/SEA AND THE GOAT IS SATURN/SATAN.

http://www.proto-english.org/l10.html

In horror films the two are linked also,think of Satanic/Saturnic films there is usually always a virgin getting sacrificed in them.

We are in the lower part of our zodiacal journey or the two lower elements earth and water.

We are in the underworld,the world of darkness and illusion

We are the earthy man,we are John the baptist like and we need to discover the Christ within us that will lift us up into the “heavenly” air and fire elements,and when we receive that baptism we raise ourselves from the water just as Jesus did at his baptism.

John baptized with water and he was a man of earth,he lived in the wilderness and ate locusts….see the two elements earth and water.

Jesus baptizes with spirit (air) and fire.

John the Baptist says this at Matthew 3:11

“I baptize you with water for repentance. But after me comes one who is more powerful than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.”

http://latindictionary.wikidot.com/noun:spiritus

Jesus moved from the “Son of Man” to become “Son of God.”

He was moving to higher awareness/consciousness/the fountain from inside was flowing.

In the psalms it talks about the same things.

Psalm 40:2

He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand.”

We are literally in the mud and mire of our bodies. (notice the word Mary/Miriam/Myra in the word mire) the feminine part of the zodiac cycle,also represented by matrix/mud/mudder (mother)/Ma’at/mater/matter.

We are immersed in dense matter!

Yet the bible says we escape (as do all religious texts)…again in amazing allegory!

First though I would like to talk a wee bit about the awakening experience I had as a JW and how it led me to a bigger awakening.

Below is an example of a Jehovah’s Witness awakening.

http://www.jehovahs-witness.com/topic/5657027011411968/stepping-out-shadows

And a short video.

Once a JW begins to realize that the organization they belong to isn’t…what…they…once…thought it was……the scales literally fall from their eyes…..a wholly frightening/and yet exhilarating experience for those that go through it.

I had that earthquake.

Through the trauma it brought,it was also accompanied by a realization (real-eyes-ation),and ultimately a wisdom gaining experience…a new birth of sorts.

The first question I was asked by an elder and friend when I started to air my doubts about the organization was…“Where else can we go?”

Jehovah’s witnesses firmly believe and insist that their organization is the only true one…there is nothing outside of it except darkness,wickedness and chaos,and ultimately destruction.

Lets see an example of the kind of things said through their various magazines and books.

“Just as Noah and his God-fearing family were preserved in the ark, survival of individuals today depends on their faith and their loyal association with the earthly part of Jehovah’s universal organization.” (w06 5/15 p.22 par. 8 Are You Prepared for Survival?)

They are taught that if you are outside that “ark”…..there is no hope for you at all unless you are part of the Jehovah’s Witness organization.

Any Jehovah’s witness who happens to read this blog will have to agree that the Governing Body are God’s only true spokesperson on earth and there are no others.

Who really is the faithful and discreet slave?

However at the Australian Royal Commission (ARC) last year (which was investigating how institutions dealt with child abuse allegations),one of the Governing Body members (Geoffrey Jackson) said this.

He said it would be “presumptuous” to say they they are the only spokesperson God is using.

I believe Jehovah’s Witnesses have it wrong when they ask “where else can we go?”

Let’s have a look and see why.

They take that question from the scripture at John 6:68. (NIV)

“Simon Peter answered him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life.”

They reason that if they aren’t the true religion,none of the others come near to them because they alone use the name Jehovah and preach door to door,do not use the cross or believe in the trinity….So they will ask you where else can we go,thinking there is no other place to go outside their organization.

However did you notice the scripture doesn’t say where else can we go…..but to whom shall we go!

To which the answer would be “Christ.”

And this is where we encounter one of the bibles great secrets.

Colossians 1:27

“For God wanted them to know that the riches and glory of Christ are for you Gentiles, too. And this is the secret: Christ lives in you. This gives you assurance of sharing his glory.

The Christ is inside you…..you have an inauthentic self and an authentic self.

There is somewhere else to go,and it is a place where you will never be manipulated or duped by charlatans such as the Watchtower Society ever again.

There is no true religion outside of you,not one.

However you have to keep knocking,exerting yourself to find the narrow path by awakening your higher self within. (Christ).

The single eye,the chief cornerstone,enlightenment…..

You become both a King and a Priest in yourself.The law won’t come from outside you as written on stone tablets,the laws will be written on your heart.

Jeremiah 31:33

Just as the sun rises at Easter and brings the barren earth to life,the Christ is an inner sun,that needs rise within you,to move you from the two lower elements,earth and water to the two higher or male elements,namely air and fire,the bible talks about it saying being caught up in the air.And the world being destroyed by fire

http://biblehub.com/1_thessalonians/4-17.htm

And when you do find that Christ within you as stated in a previous blog and repeated here,it will cause this to occur inside of you.

John 4:14

14 “but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”

When a Jehovah’s Witness “awakens” and the word “awaken” is allowing your “single eye” to open…to see the light!….to see things as they actually are and not as you once believed,and it is one hell of a paradigm shift.

As said before it is harrowing and yet ultimately healing,it is also like an ascension or resurrection because you can see things from a higher perspective than you did previously,and you come to life and higher awareness…a new birth.

The keys of the zodiac,astrology,kaballah,sex and nature will open all the doors to the scriptures,myths,fairy tales,nursery rhymes and festivals.The more you study,the more you will see the links between them all,everywhere.

Even in films we find themes relating to finding this true (higher) self/Christ in you,and abandoning the lower self.

Freud called the lower self the “Id” and the entity known as the Id (“Id” entity or rather “identity”) deals with our basic instinctual drives,including the libido.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Id,_ego_and_super-ego#Id

Some call this “base consciousness” and it is represented by the black and white floor of a masonic lodge….it is “black and white thinking” where one cannot see the grey areas which everything has,it is having polarized,superstitious and wave-like emotional views.

photo11
The floor of a masonic lodge represents most of mankind who are polarized,and content to go along to get along by following the crowd.They are moved like pawns on the chess board of life.

However the “Blazing Star” of the masonic lodge (Sirius) gives hope of light shining in the darkness,and those who follow it will gain enlightenment and find the Christ within,just as the “wise men”,”magi” or astrologers found the Christ by following Sirius.

masonic trip to sirius
NOTE THE STAIRS ILLUSTRATING HIGHER CONSCIOUSNESS/ASCENSION/JACOBS LADDER/ILLUMINATION/IN REVELATIONS IT IS REPRESENTED BY THE MOUNTAIN.

Let’s see an example of this higher journey from the film “The Truman Show.”

Even the name of the film gives us a clue……the “True Man” show.

In the film we find the character “Truman Burbank” living in a totally fake world,a world of illusion.He is the star of a reality show where people watch his every move 24/7 and he is not aware of it.He is surrounded by actors who all play the role of friends,family and work colleagues etc etc.

However the “True Man” is stirring inside of him as he starts to question things and strangely enough one of the things that starts him questioning is a light falling from the ceiling of the large dome studio he is in.

What does the light say on it?

Truman1

The next thing that follows is that all his “friends” and “colleagues” try to prevent him from following his journey to enlightenment,and he even starts to question his own sanity.

When I was a JW all of my friends and family were telling me I was going insane for even questioning that the religion might not be the truth.

I even started questioning myself…….was I seeing things all wrong?

Why couldn’t anyone else see what I was seeing?

However by pursuing what I thought was right through to the end gave me such an awakening,such a paradigm shift even though it felt like a crucifixion at the time……I really have a freedom of mind I would never trade for anything,even though I know my reputation,name and character is pretty much shredded among my former friends.

It cannot ever enter their minds that the religion could be wrong….never ever….the fault always lies with the one who leaves.

At the end of the “Truman Show” we see how he has ascended,had his crucifixion and gained his freedom.

TrumanFree
Meet the ascended (again symbolized by stairs),crucified “TRUE MAN.” Which is the subject of all religious texts,and religious figures,whether Buddha(Buddha means “awakened,enlightened one”),Krishna,Christ.

We see the theme in other films like “The Matrix” where Neo Anderson (“Neo” means “New”,”Ander” means “Man” and “Son”…put it together and you get “New Son of Man”,and again like Truman,Neo finds out the world he is in isn’t real…it is an illusion and he has many trials to get through to gain his freedom from it.

It is the story of Christ….it is the story of Us,and the struggle to find the Christ within us,and the journey that begins with it.

Joseph Campbell recognized it and wrote about it,calling it the hero’s journey or monomyth. which just happens to have 12 stages,just like the zodiac which is a symbol of the journey.

http://www.movieoutline.com/articles/the-hero-journey-mythic-structure-of-joseph-campbell-monomyth.html

It is also seen in the “Wizard of Oz” and “Star Wars”…”Harry Potter” and “Lord of the Rings.”

We see it in the story of Moses,Joseph,Daniel and Jesus among many others in the bible,because it is again naturally in our collective psyche,and all cultures talk about it in their own ways.

Let’s have a look at another version of this ubiquitous story,this time in the Bhagavad Gita,and you may notice some similarities to stories and characters that are encountered in the Bible.

“Bhagavad Gita” means “Song of the Lord” and it a part of the Mahabharata,an epic Indian poem.

The Bhagavad Gita tells the story of the war between two groups called the Pandavas and the Kauravas.

mahabharat-kurukshetra-war-kauravas-pandavas
The Kurukshetra war between the Pandavas and Kauravas…….(light and darkness…left and right hemispheres of the brain)

The Pandavas are the five sons of Pandu and Kunti,Pandu is the phallus/sun and Kunti is the vagina (cunt).

The male and female.

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

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

Pandu means yellow….yellow like the sun.

Kunti means “lover of the sun god” (or penis) for the penis is the sun on a lower plane,as the penis brings life to the earth as does the sun….both are connected with “the generation game.”

The five sons of Pandu are the 5 aspects of divine personality that reach out from fourfold matter….as illustrated below.

leonardoThe leader of the Pandavas and the main protagonist of the Bhagavad Gita is Arjuna,and Arjuna represents the divine personality,that which seeks union with God/higher mind.

In fact all the Pandavas are aspects of the dormant “higher”or “good” parts of our personality,or “right brain” thinking,the right brain being the feminine receptive mode of thought where inspiration is derived from,the part of the brain that looks  and yearns for the moments when light dawns on it. (the lover of the sun god)

However their father dies (no higher thought activity) and they are raised by their uncle…Dhritarashtra who is a good king….yet he is blind from birth.

Dhritarashtra

He represents the highest aspect of the lower/carnal part of our nature…well intentioned,yet blind,just as those Jehovah’s witnesses cannot see the manipulation they are under,but yet they are well meaning people.

Jesus pictured it this way

Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.”

–Matthew 15:14

The highest level of base consciousness cannot exceed the lowest level of higher thought.See the scripture below.

Matthew 11:11

“Truly I tell you, among those born of women (earth/water) there has not risen anyone greater than John the Baptist; yet whoever is least in the kingdom of heaven(air/fire/higher elements) is greater than he.

“Abiding in the midst of ignorance, thinking themselves wise and learned, fools go aimlessly hither and thither, like blind led by the blind.”— Katha Upanishad

 This is the allegory of Jesus healing the blind,people coming to a higher consciousness and being able to see clearly,awakening the third eye symbolized by dots or snakes on religious peoples foreheads.
a_di_da_phat_buddha_guanyin_1132_by_kwanyinbuddha-d7anx5w
Or we see it symbolized by oil being poured on the forehead.
samuel-anointing-david14x17

People who are seeking outside for the kingdom rather than inward,are chasing illusions….for which religion is true?

In Christianity alone there are more than 30,000 differing versions.

King James Bible

Luke 17:21
“Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.

The Blind King (Dhritarashtra) also has 100 sons and these represent all the troubling negative thoughts we experience daily…anger…deceit…disgust…envy…greed…and the list goes on.

And yet they are the favourites of the blind king,they are the offspring of carnal thoughts……they are his sons after all.

So basically you have a story about light versus darkness,the black and white floor of the masonic lodge pictured above.

The Pandavas are the light and the sons of the blind king represent darkness.

Then it tells us that the blind king gives land to the Pandavas,meaning that the blind king is showing the higher self all the riches and desires that can be attained by the lower carnal mind…..riches,cars,big house,fame etc.

Duryodhana is the leader of the “bad guys” and also the eldest of the Kauravas,his name means “unconquerable warrior.”

Duryodhana is the deceiver inside us who keeps us wanting more and yet what we get is never enough,he keeps the desire insatiable/unconquerable.

Next Duryodhana gets Yudhishtira (another of the five Pandavas….the steady,balanced spiritual mind) into a dice game and Yudhishtira loses the gamble and goes into exile for 13 years…..in other words he gambled his birthright to desire and lost and found himself in bondage,until after 13 years something stirs and he wants his birthright back,and again challenges the blind king.

Can you see many bible stories in the above also…..Esau selling his birthright for a bowl of stew,Jesus being taken up to a high mountain and shown all the kingdoms of the world and tempted by the deceiver.

It is all about birthrights and claiming what is yours if only you can grasp it,however you have a fight on your hands as all the legends,myths,religious stories,and films tell us.

The Pandavas and the Kauravas eventually meet for battle at Kurukshetra and at the end of 18 days only 12 major warriors are left including the five Pandavas.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kurukshetra_War#Aftermath

The battle of Kurukshetra is also the battle of Armageddon where again the conquerors stand on the mountain (ascension) alongside the lamb of god.

Or defeating Voldemort,Sauron,Goliath,Pharaoh in the story of Moses…..etc etc.

It is the battle each one of has to take to overcome the beast inside of all of us and conquer in the name of truth and light.

Saint-George-Slaying-the-Dragon-1551-Giorgio-Vasari-660x350-1429765970

What is fascinating about it all is that so many cultures are talking about the same thing in a myriad of ways.

Yet at the end of the day…it is the same story being told….the greatest story ever told…the story of us!

There is no religion higher than truth!

Rites and Spells…what’s in a word?

Hebrews4-12
Put an “s” in front of “word” and it becomes “sword”……the sword is a symbol of mars….and mars divides! and as Paul says above ….words delve deep into us,divide and make us observe ourselves.

Before this blog gets underway,I have to give my gratitude to all those truth seekers and tellers who gave me a whole new way of seeing things.Here are but a few of them.

Michael Tsarion,Santos Bonacci,Lon Milo Duquette,Manly Palmer Hall,Mark Passio,Aleister Crowley,Israel Regardie,Jordan Maxwell,The Rev Robert Taylor,Albert Pike.

Thanks to all of you for helping me out on my path,and to the many others I haven’t named.

If any of these blogs I write interest you,please research the works of the people above,as my blogs contain the influences of all of them.

As usual…before this blog gets going,if you have been grasping the occult teachings,you will also understand this quote.

When thou hast made the quadrangle round, Then is all the secret found – George Ripley (Alchemist, 1490)

Once you understand that there is a “fourness” to nature……the quadrangle,and use that “fourness” in your studies,nature will start to give up her secrets to you.

Isis will “unveil” herself……….”the word “apocalypse” means to “unveil”

As does “revelation”…..to reveal………….We can see long lived institutions and patterns of life starting to dissolve as the new form around them.

This is the unveiling of Isis or the Cube of Saturn opening to form the cross

…”the Kabalists hold that these four principles penetrate and create everything. Therefore, when the man finds these four principles in things and phenomena of quite different categories (where before he had not seen similarity), he begins to see analogy between these phenomena. And, gradually, he becomes convinced that the whole world is built according to one and the same law, on one and the same plan. The richness and growth of his intellect consists in the widening of his faculty for finding analogies. Therefore the study of the law of the four letters, or the name of Jehovah presents a powerful means for widening consciousness”P. D. Ouspensky

As stated above…the four letters,the tetragrammaton is a key,the 4 living creatures of the bible are a key,which helps start to fill the picture in for you,or again as Ouspensky says above helps “widen your consciousness.”

Think of it this way,if you want to start a jigsaw puzzle,it usually helps to find the four corners before the picture slowly forms for you.

It is the same with this puzzle.

And you will see this “fourness” throughout the bible,and also other holy books,also through myths and fairy stories and legends.

Another few examples.

Back to this blog now….

“The word is mightier than the sword”

Ahiqar

For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.”

Hebrews 4:12

Jordan Maxwell says in one of his presentations we really have to start to understand words….why?

Hopefully this blog gives a tiny glimpse of how words and terms affect us….without us noticing most of the time…so let’s get started!

Rites and Spells

When you think of “rites” and “spells”…you may associate those words with witchcraft,the occult…or magic.

For instance….casting spells…magic spells…satanic rites…..words not uttered often in polite society…..or are they?

Well,children do this every day at school….they learn to (w)rite……and spell!

What about ancient “grimoires?”

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grimoire

A “grimoire” is a magic book………..the word “grimoire” comes from the word “grammar.”

Honorius

Therefore…….writing……spelling and grammar are the tools of the magician!

Words are tools of occultists and magicians.

According to the author Alan Moore,”magic” is ….”a science of language.”

Try to watch the whole video if you can.

(Alan Moore is the author of “V for Vendetta”…..”Watchmen” and “From Hell”)

Magic is among other things,the ability to sculpt words and symbols to “achieve changes in consciousness”

Aleister Crowley in defining “magick” said this:-

“It is the science and art of causing change to occur in conformity with will.”

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magick_%28Thelema%29#Definitions_and_general_purpose_of_Magick

Those with a strong “will” can make those with weaker wills bend to their every word.

The bible talks about how precious words and oaths are….how important your word is.

Matthew 12:36

“I tell you, on the day of judgment people will give account for every careless word they speak”

Again…please watch what Alan Moore says on the above video……understand what he means when he says how carefully a magician has to choose his words.

Every word you utter is like a spell…….it can cause devastation in another persons life….or it can be a great blessing to them.

When I was a Jehovah’s Witness….I was literally “spellbound.”

the word “spellbound” means…….

“To hold the complete attention of (someone) as though by magic

I allowed the words and symbols of others to capture my mind……I gave my mind over to others.

I allowed a group of men in Brooklyn,New York (who I had never met) to guide my mind,and I now find that fascinating,because binding with magic(a modern meaning of “magic” is influence/mind manipulation) doesn’t stop at the door of the watchtower society…it is everywhere!

When I started allowing myself to question things it was like scales falling from my eyes….I literally had an awakening….it was as if I awoke from a dream.

And that awakening is a terrifying experience….watch this video that is helping JW’s get through that roller coaster ride.

The video tries to help JW’s come to terms with unravelling the concepts that have been implanted in their minds……to break the thoughtforms that have bound their minds.

THIS IS THE REAL MEANING OF MAGIC!

In the biblical account of the birth of jesus…the “wise men” who came to bestow gifts on the newborn were actually called “Magi.”

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magi

Now “magi” is a word that should be familiar to you….the word “magic” contains “magi.”

The “wise men” of the bible were magicians and astrologers!

The word “imagine” also contains magi….imagination

The “real” magicians of this world are those who wield words and symbols as weapons on the minds,and particularly the “emotions” of the unwary.

Think of the emotional scene when a televangelist says a few words well…gets the whole audience under his spell….and donations com a-pouring in!

AA93052F6C5245CC8B05763184AB391C
Creflo Dollar asked his followers for $65 million dollars to buy a jet. Nice work if you can get it eh?

Again…this folks….is magic!……..he put a “spell” into their minds…or an image (again “magi” is there in “image”).

The image I had in my mind when I was a Jehovah’s witness was that those men in Brooklyn somehow had direct contact ( never explained by what method) with God and were directing us as “Gods only true organization” into everlasting life on earth.

(I know I was an eejit) but there are 7 million Jehovah’s witnesses with that picture/image in their mind right now!

They give away their valuable time and money to a pipe dream spun by their manipulators!

For example, this is what happens when JW’s (Jehovah’s Witnesses) build a new Kingdom Hall.

The congregation apply to the society for a loan,which they obviously have to pay back.

Then they and all the other local congregations gather to help build the Kingdom hall (free labour).

The hall is usually built over a weekend.

Quick hands 2

So the JW’s pay for their own hall and build it themselves.

Now here’s the kicker……while the hall is built and paid for by the local JW’s……the property is signed over to the organization,who have just gained themselves some new valuable property and they haven’t lifted a finger.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3358416/Jehovah-s-Witnesses-set-make-1billion-selling-iconic-New-York-City-Watchtower-headquarters.html

And their adherents think they are doing all of this for God!

They truly are “captives of a concept.”

And that is only Jehovah’s Witnesses…..think of all the other thousands of religions worldwide where people are giving their time and money thinking they are serving their own version of “God.”

Mormons believe that a man called Joseph Smith spoke to an angel called Moroni who directed him to a buried book of golden plates.

joseph-smith-and-angel-moroni

And Mormons give a lot of their hard earned money to their religion believing that THEY are the right religion.

However not one of those religions are true…they are both false.

Members of each religion can see how absurd the others beliefs are…..YET…they have a “blind spot” when it comes to examining their own faith.

None of the religions out there have the way to “God”…….there are over 30,000 different christian denominations alone and each one will differ from all the others in some way or other.

The answer does not lie outside of you……You need to awaken the higher self……the “God” within……..the only temple that “God” resides in is your own body.

You need to resurrect the Christ within you.

“Jesus said, “If those who lead you say to you, ‘See, the kingdom is in the sky,’ then the birds of the sky will precede you. If they say to you, ‘It is in the sea,’ then the fish will precede you. Rather, the kingdom is inside of you, and it is outside of you. When you come to know yourselves, then you will become known, and you will realize that it is you who are the sons of the living father. But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty.””

The Gospel of Thomas verse 3.

1 Corinthians 3:16
“Don’t you know that you yourselves are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit lives in you?”

People worldwide right now are following blind leaders.

And that concept holds them captive to the will of those they handed their own will and mind over to.

They truly are “captives of a concept”….”prisoners of a thought form.”

They have given their “birthright” their own “sovereignty” away to those ones.

Another example…Tom Cruise/John Travolta/Kirstie Alley think Scientology is the right religion and that David Miscavige has the right to lord it over them….and the minds of others.

Even when they get to one of their levels and they are told about Xenu,they still remain committed to the group….who is Xenu you ask?…..Please read for yourself in the link below.

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

Think also of images that have been put into the minds of the population of a country

“Mom and apple pie”

“Stiff upper lip”

“Keep calm and carry on”

“America is the great satan”

These things divide us all…….

People will kill one another over a bit of cloth (the flag)…..or a different coloured football shirt……all because of their manipulated thoughts stirring their “watery” emotions.

those-who-can-make-you-believe-absurdities-can-make-you-commit-atrocities-7

Magic is also said to be:-

“trickery and slight-of-hand to beguile an audience”

“God” to us is really our own inner voice and compass…….and it should remain ever like that.

There should never be an intermediary/interloper between us and “God.”

However…… there are magicians who can implant images into your mind that override your own inner compass and shut down the inner voice.

They then place their image into your mind…and when you are subject to the will of another….you are in trouble…you are a slave Neo!

It is a form of hypnotism….mesmerism.

This is why the bible says

exodus 20:3,4

“You shall have no other gods before Me.” 4You shall not make for yourself an image, or any likeness of what is in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the water under the earth.”

All of the things in this world that man fights over and is divided by…are illusions.

Do not get me wrong……those illusions can be very destructive to us.

When I stopped believing the illusion of Jehovah’s Witnesses it still caused havoc in my life…not because of the illusion itself…..but by the still clinging adherents to that illusion.

And we are surrounded by people who believe illusions…they can and will cause you harm if you dare to think outside the box.

Nazism was an illusion and it duped a whole nation of really intelligent people…..

Marshall Applewhite created an illusion that caused people to willingly kill themselves for it…..and even more….with a big smile on their face while doing it…they were so happy to die for that picture in their mind.

HGATE06

Watch this video filmed just before they died,and note how happy they all are at their impending death!

And again before you think those were just a few dupes…..

I ask you to think of the German population under Hitler…sure there were those who had their reservations…..but intelligent people……engineers/scientists/lawyers were all swept along with that tidal wave of social pressure.

That is the problem when we look outside rather than dig within our own selves

Outside us are all illusions…..hooks that want to grab you….to take your mind..to bind us with contracts and oaths.

Saturn/Satan as the restricter/limiter is the one who binds and deceives those who wish to be deceived…..Saturn will put you in a box.

There are master manipulators who can control you without you ever realizing it.

http://www.theguardian.com/politics/2013/nov/12/government-nudge-theory-budge

And we also now have “political correctness”…where people are kept in a mode of thought and speech dictated by others,where we start to police ourselves.

The truth is…as humans we are easily manipulated…easily programmed…….and we adapt to even the most horrendous conditions and think them normal.

Aldous Huxley said this in his speech at Berkeley University called “the ultimate revolution”

It was given in 1962……….over 50 years ago.

“It seems to me that the nature of the ultimate revolution with which we are now faced is precisely this: That we are in process of developing a whole series of techniques which will enable the controlling oligarchy who have always existed and presumably will always exist to get people to love their servitude.”

Love their servitude?……yes….you are a slave neo!

In 1st Samuel chapter eight  verse five….the elders of Israel approach Samuel.

They said to him, “You are old, and your sons do not follow your ways; now appoint a king to lead us, such as all the other nations have.”

In effect they were saying to Samuel that they wanted to give up their birthright….their divine right to rule their own selves….they wanted to be ruled like children

what did Samuel say to them?

11 He said, “This is what the king who will reign over you will claim as his rights: He will take your sons and make them serve with his chariots and horses, and they will run in front of his chariots. 12 Some he will assign to be commanders of thousands and commanders of fifties, and others to plow his ground and reap his harvest, and still others to make weapons of war and equipment for his chariots. 13 He will take your daughters to be perfumers and cooks and bakers. 14 He will take the best of your fields and vineyards and olive groves and give them to his attendants. 15 He will take a tenth of your grain and of your vintage and give it to his officials and attendants. 16 Your male and female servants and the best of your cattle[c] and donkeys he will take for his own use. 17 He will take a tenth of your flocks, and you yourselves will become his slaves. 18 When that day comes, you will cry out for relief from the king you have chosen, but the Lord will not answer you in that day.

In other words it is what we see around about us today……our sons fight for their rulers when the rulers decide they will be needed.

They will take the best of your produce and give it to the ones who prop up their rule.

Verse 18 is of particular interest….when you cry out for relief from the chains you have bound YOURSELF with….god will not listen.

Notice we build our own prisons and chain ourselves…….this is one of the meanings of the devil tarot card….again notice that the chains that hold the slaves of the devil are loose around the slaves neck……..it only takes a change of mind to unshackle yourself!

The Devil
The devil actually represents the darker side of our nature.

This is also again the allegory of dealing with the devil…..if you willingly contract with him…you’d better be damned sure you know what you are signing up for…..because he sure does….and he will hold you to every letter of that contract.

It is also the allegory of the vampire…….you have to invite him over your threshold..he cannot come in uninvited……but once you do succumb and invite him over.

………he will bleed you dry!

We only get what we as a people deserve when we look to people outside ourselves to run our lives for us….whether it be religion or government….we need to grow up….stand on our own two feet.

We need to awaken ourselves!

In the book of Jeremiah we see that there will be ones who will awaken and take back their own sovereignty

Jeremiah 31:32

“But this is the covenant which I will make with the house of Israel after those days,” declares the LORD, “I will put My law within them and on their heart I will write it; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people”

2 Corinthians 3:3

“You show that you are a letter from Christ, the result of our ministry, written not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts.”

Notice that the laws will be in their heart and not on outside tablets of stone….it is telling us about gaining back our own birthright or sovereignty.

And not to be like Esau who sold his birthright for a bowl of stew.

And Jacob said, “First swear to me”; so he swore to him, and sold his birthright to Jacob. 34.Then Jacob gave Esau bread and lentil stew; and he ate and drank, and rose and went on his way. Thus Esau despised his birthright.

Notice he willingly gave his sovereignty away?

In the major stories of the bible…there is one theme “set my people free”

In the story of Moses……he approaches the ruler of his world and says…”set my people free.”

Jesus approached the pharisees and saducees and talked about how their laws were binding the people and weighing them down…again in effect saying “set my people free.”

Matthew 23:4

For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men’s shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers.

However many did get back their own freedoms by following Jesus…or “the truth.”

They came back to life….they came out of their “graves.”

This is the meaning of the bible verse at Matthew 27:52

“And behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom; and the earth shook and the rocks were split. 52The tombs were opened, and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised; 53and coming out of the tombs after His resurrection they entered the holy city and appeared to many”

And again we are starting to see our freedoms diminish….it will take another cry of “set my people free” to loosen the shackles we have imposed on our own selves by giving our sovereignty over to others.

Here are some interesting experiments to show how easy we can be manipulated.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stanford_prison_experiment

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Milgram_experiment

And words are used to control us….the pen truly is mightier than the sword.

In the esoteric and occult disciplines….words and wordplay are very important.

If you have read or watched the “Da Vinci code” you will have noticed the wordplay and codes used throughout the book.

One example is “San Greal”…..”Holy Grail” becoming “Sang real”….”Royal blood” all with moving a letter….although they mean the same thing…….the vagina…..the life bringing cup with the wine/blood in it.

In the Harry Potter books and films we can see wordplay constantly…..here’s an example.

There are four houses that the pupils can belong to……(there’s the four again)

Gryffindor,Slytherin,Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff.

Harry Potter represents the light and truth….so we should expect to see some sun symbolism surrounding him….and we do!

Harry Potter belongs to Gryffindor.

Here is the crest of Gryffindor….and it just happens to be a lion,and you will know from previous blogs on here…the lion is a symbol of the Sun with its golden mane.

L_4HOUSES_Accessories_Patches_HarryPotter_Accessories_GryffindorCrestPatch_1230054And think of the name Gryffindor…or “Gryffin d’or”….a griffin is part lion…..and d’or is French for gold!

Ballon d'Or
ballon d’or is the golden ball….just as gryffin d’or is the golden lion.

The sun is likened to a golden lion and Harry Potter represents the light and sun.

But what about his enemy Draco Malfoy…..he belongs to the house called “Slytherin” and we can see the word “slithering” contained in it,connecting it to a serpent…..which represents the darkness/satan/saturn…..however we can also see the words “sly therein” also contained in the name.

And what about the name Harry Potter?……..in Sanskrit the name “Hari” is connected to the sun,day,gold and yellow……..

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

And the Egyptian god Ptah (pronounced pitah) is the potter or creator…who fashions things on his potters wheel…..(notice the wheel…see the blogs on “wheels within wheels”)

ptah
Ptah is the Potter

Whereas Draco Malfoy’s name contains the enemy of light….”Draco” means “dragon.”

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Draco_%28constellation%29

“Mal” means “bad”

http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/mal-

“Foy” can mean “way” or “journey”………think foyer.

So the names all mean something.

All of the occult orders pay real close attention to words and names.

Onomatology is the science of names

http://www.thefreedictionary.com/onomatology

“It is certain that onomatology, or the science of names, forms a very interesting part of the investigations of the higher Masonry” (Encyclopedia of Freemasonry page 481)

books

A lot of films containing occult themes will have this type of wordplay and punning all through them.

What about the film “Rosemary’s Baby?”

When Rosemary played by Mia Farrow finds out that her neighbour “Roman Castavets” is really an anagram of “Steven Marcato”….the satanist.

Roman-Castevet-Rosemary's-Baby-1968 (1)

O BEBÊ DE ROSEMARY PÔSTER ROSEMARY'S BABY 1968 ROMAN POLANSKI 74

You will see it a lot in films.

Jordan Maxwell talks about occult words and terms in the video “The occult world of commerce”

In the video he tells us that the words and terms surrounding money are also connected with water!

He says that “money runs through your fingers like water”

You have a “cashFLOW.”

If you have a business and it isn’t going well…you might need “bailed out”

You can have your assets “frozen”

You can put your money in a “slush” fund.

Or if the worst comes to the worst …your business goes into “liquidation”

Banks have “current” accounts.

Talking about banks…..a river has a “bank” at each side to direct the flow of the “current-cy” as do banks in the high street.

You put a “float” in the cash register.

You “drown” in debt.

You try to keep your “head above water”…and remain “buoyant.”

You can get a “bridging” loan….hopefully not from a loan “shark”

If you buy something they will “ship” it out to you (even though it usually arrives in a van!)

You might get a “sponger” after your money

“Life saving” is connected to money and water.

You may save for a “rainy” day.

Money has a “watermark” on it.

You may “pool” your money together.

Or “splash” the cash or “splash out” on a new car.

And I bet you can think of some words connecting “money” and “water” yourself…there are loads.

Yes words are mighty things…..for further reading you may want to study for yourself the word “egregore” and how an “egregore” can affect us.

These are the things nefarious occult orders use to control and manipulate the unwary.

“La Belle Dame sans Merci” is coming!

0c27cbc4cfbecb5dfae2916c5a68b66c.1000x610x1

O what can ail thee, knight-at-arms,
Alone and palely loitering?
The sedge has withered from the lake,
And no birds sing.

O what can ail thee, knight-at-arms,
So haggard and so woe-begone?
The squirrel’s granary is full,
And the harvest’s done.

I see a lily on thy brow,
With anguish moist and fever-dew,
And on thy cheeks a fading rose
Fast withereth too.

I met a lady in the meads,
Full beautiful—a faery’s child,
Her hair was long, her foot was light,
And her eyes were wild.

I made a garland for her head,
And bracelets too, and fragrant Zone;
She looked at me as she did love,
And made sweet moan

I set her on my pacing steed,
And nothing else saw all day long,
For sidelong would she bend, and sing
A faery’s song.

She found me roots of relish sweet,
And honey wild, and manna-dew,
And sure in language strange she said—
‘I love thee true’.

She took me to her Elfin grot,
And there she wept and sighed full sore,
And there I shut her wild wild eyes
With kisses four.

And there she lullèd me asleep,
And there I dreamed—Ah! woe betide!—
The latest dream I ever dreamt
On the cold hill side.

I saw pale kings and princes too,
Pale warriors, death-pale were they all;
They cried—‘La Belle Dame sans Merci
Hath thee in thrall!’

I saw their starved lips in the gloam,
With horrid warning gapèd wide,
And I awoke and found me here,
On the cold hill’s side.

And this is why I sojourn here,
Alone and palely loitering,
Though the sedge is withered from the lake,
And no birds sing.

Who…or rather “what” is Keats talking about in this poem?

Again this picture of the sine wave should clue us in to what the poem is about.

rsz_1zodiac_sine_waveOn the left of the graph above,you see Aries the ram.

Aries is ruled by the planet Mars!

Mars is the warrior,the God of war(think of martial law and martial arts…they come from Mars),he is the knight-at-arms in Keats’s poem above,Mars kicks off the male/life/light/growth part of the yearly cycle in March 21st….(March is named after Mars)….this is the upper arch in the graph above.

Remember the male part of the year is Spring and Summer,the male represents the light…again…think of the Sun…if you have a male child he is your son…or Sun.

The light is needed for things to grow….and spring/summer is the part of the year when the earth grows things.

This is known in freemasonry as the royal arch.

The 6 months of light.

RA 200

However,autumn and winter are the female,dark part of the year.

The lower arch of the sine wave (notice there is no colour in the bottom part of the sine wave?) starts in the sign of Libra on September 22nd/23rd…..and that is the part of the sine wave/cycle the poem is dealing with.

winter arch 001
This is the “female” part of the sine wave. The dark/deadly/cold/negative part of the sine wave which gives us autumn and winter.Santos Bonacci says this is the magnetic part of the “pulse” of the sine wave,the drawing in/attractive part of the zodiacal cycle and all other cycles…..the zodiac is in all cycles.This  negative part of the sine wave starts at Libra in the yearly cycle. Evening in the daily cycle.

The male part of the day is morning and afternoon….light/active.

Evening and nighttime is the dark/passive part of the day’s cycle…the female.

Being awake and active is your “male” part of your daily life cycle.

Being asleep and dreaming is the female part of your daily life cycle….the female passive.

I wrote before that “vertical” is the male and “horizontal” the female a blog or two ago.

Think of the vertical parts of the four seasons…they are called the “SOLstices”….and again “Sol” is the sun…..the male.

The equinoxes are the female,”Equi-NOX” means equal nights,and again it links us with the female/horizontal part of the year……nox/night being the equivalent of winter/female/dark….the feminine principle/the dark in the yin/yang….again two males and two females.

Freemasons call the two solstices the “two St. Johns” or “Holy Saints John”

hsj
Holy Saints John

http://www.themasonictrowel.com/Articles/Symbolism/st_johns_files/two_st_johns.htm

Now with the understanding that we are dealing with the autumn equinox and the meeting of the two forces at this special time of the year (male and female)….let’s have a look at the poem again.

Keats is talking about the end of the spring/summer/male/growth part of the season.

Mars…and the Sun’s time is almost extinguished at the sign of Libra……in fact there are only two times every year where the male and female parts of the year meet or join together.

The Spring Equinox,which we have seen in the “Aries and the lamb of god” blog.

And the other is the Autumnal equinox,and this is what we are looking at in Keats’s poem and this blog.

The two equinoxes when the Sun and Saturn “meet.”

maxresdefault
They also “meet” in Aries.

Important info below,for understanding these concepts.

Saturn exalts in Libra,and the Sun falls,whereas it’s the opposite in Aries.

Mars is in his detriment in the sign of Libra also…the warrior has come to his end at the hand of the maiden Venus.

http://therealastrology.com/information/detrimental-planets.html

Scroll down in the above link to see Mars is in detriment in Libra.

Notice Venus and Saturn in Libra both “bring down” the Sun and Mars. (Saturn is Satan and Venus is Eve in the bible drama of “the fall of MAN” (Sun/Mars).

Saturn and the Sun are opposites as are Mars and Venus.

The darkness has returned to the earth…the “dark maiden” of Solomon’s song is back on the scene.

The dark part of the yin/yang………yin!

yin-yang

She is beautiful….and yet she is deadly……without mercy.

And aren’t both Autumn and Winter deadly….without mercy…and yet beautiful also?

The female of the species is deadlier than the male.

The female equates to Isis…whose veil mortals can never uncover.

heho_statue_of_isis
The statue of the veiled Isis given to Herbert Hoover by the Belgians.

http://www.nps.gov/heho/learn/historyculture/isis-statue.htm

She is the occult/left handed/sinister maiden.

She is the black widow….black again because Saturn starts his rule…he exalts in Libra to start his rule over the dark part of the year.

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

Notice in the wiki page above Isis is also called “Aset” or “Iset”…….which equates also to “Set”…..the dark god who is the enemy of Horus….and also sunset….just as the sun goes into the underworld and darkness arrives on the earth.

Saturn’s colour is black…..as is Isis’s colour (along with green)….the terrorist group ISIS have black flags do they not,and the colour of flags of Islam are green..are they not?

Isis’s colour is black because of Saturn and the soil/night/winter/darkness….and death!…the female part of the cycle.

But on another level….white,Isis name connects with Ice.(all the colours of light make white light…all the colours of matter..e.g paint when mixed make black)

Notice the poem says….

“O what can ail thee, knight-at-arms,
Alone and palely loitering?
The sedge has withered from the lake,
And no birds sing.”

He is talking about the end of the growth cycle on the earth!

“O what can ail thee, knight-at-arms,
So haggard and so woe-begone?
The squirrel’s granary is full,
And the harvest’s done.”

The haggard light has almost perished from the earth….the harvest is over…the squirrel has gathered the food to get it through the dark part of the yearly cycle.

The harvest is over….no more growth.

I met a lady in the meads,
Full beautiful—a faery’s child,
Her hair was long, her foot was light,
And her eyes were wild.”

The knight or male “force” meets a lady in the meadow….this is the coming together of the male and female part of the year…the meeting of the two at the autumn equinox….the male part of the year is about to hand over the reign to the female/beautiful…yet dark/cruel/deadly part of the year.

“I made a garland for her head,
And bracelets too, and fragrant Zone;
She looked at me as she did love,
And made sweet moan

I set her on my pacing steed,
And nothing else saw all day long,
For sidelong would she bend, and sing
A faery’s song.”

http://www.john-keats.com/phpboard/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=1044

Notice that they meet and interact?

Again this is the “Hieros Gamos.”

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

Rosarium_11_fermentatio

Also if you look at the picture above near the bottom of the wiki page mentioned…you will see the hieros gamos pic above is called “fermentatio“…..and isn’t it this part of the year that the grapes are picked and fermented into wine?

Santos Bonacci makes an interesting point,when he says Jesus (the sun) is crucified four times every year (hence the four accounts of his crucifixion in each of the four gospels)….at the two solstices and two equinoxes…….he explains how one of the accounts of the crucifixion of Jesus is talking about the Autumnal equinox.

In talking about these verses from John 19:29,30.

The Death of Jesus
29A jar full of sour wine was standing there; so they put a sponge full of the sour wine upon a branch of hyssop and brought it up to His mouth. 30Therefore when Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, “It is finished!” And He bowed His head and gave up His spirit.
Santos says that this is the end of the wine making part of the year,where the last of the wine turns to vinegar…and in ancient times the priests would say…”it is finished!”
The wine making is done.
There are two passovers every year…the spring passover (march 21st) when the sun is on it’s way up to the tropic of cancer/longest day.
And the autumnal Passover,(or rather a passunder/assunder) (september 23rd)…when the sun is on its way down to the tropic of Capricorn/shortest day/death and rebirth of the Sun.

Next notice Keats says this:-

And there she lullèd me asleep,
And there I dreamed—Ah! woe betide!—
The latest dream I ever dreamt
On the cold hill side.

I saw pale kings and princes too,
Pale warriors, death-pale were they all;
They cried—‘La Belle Dame sans Merci
Hath thee in thrall!’

Spring/summer is the awakening of the earth…when things come (spring) to life.

However autumn/winter is when the earth goes to sleep/and the sun is in its sleep part of the cycle/sine wave…just as we are when it gets dark.(we sleep and dream too!)

And again he talks about pale warriors……and death!

This is the same symbolism contained in the vision of the four horsemen (see previous blog)

8293066881_0c9dc28f70_o
Notice the horsemen coincide with the autumnal zodiac signs,The black horse represents Libra (see the scales of Libra in his hand?),Scorpio(the red horse,Scorpio is ruled by Mars and the colour of Mars is red.Also Mars is the god of war/sword) Then next in the cycle of the zodiac is Sagittarius (horse and man with a bow) these three signs signify death to all growth on the earth…..and the pale horse of death (Capricorn ruled by Saturn the grim reaper/old father time/death) that walks behind these three autumnal death bringing signs….however there is hope in this picture….see the lamb of Aries in the distance?….the return of the dawn and light to the earth in the form of the new age of Aquarius. (The lamb represents the dawning of the new age…and if you’ve been following the blog….dawn/spring starts in Aries the lamb/sheep/ram)

Another wee side note……notice Keats has the knight kiss the “belle dame”…how many times?

“And there I shut her wild wild eyes
With kisses four.”

From the four seasons to the four elements…..the four is ubiquitous in myth and scripture…….it is represented by the cross in Christianity.

Again as seen in previous blogs,this same allegory is seen in paintings,such as this one below “Venus and Mars” by Botticelli.

500px-Venus_and_Mars
notice that there just happen to be four satyrs and one of them is trying to waken Mars up! (Spring is approaching) Also note the implements of a knight belonging to Mars…he is a man of war just like the knight in Keats poem.

Mars is sleeping…just like the knight in Keats’s poem……And Venus is awake.(it is winter).

A good thing to remember would be that Mars rules Aries (spring equinox)…light/day,which kicks off the six months of light and growth.

And Venus rules Libra….the autumnal equinox….dark/night….Libra kicks off the six months of darkness and death.

Mars and Venus are two opposites…..Mars starts the light part of the cycle off and Venus starts the dark part of the cycle.

The picture above is telling us of the female/dark/night/winter part of the cycle.

This part of the year is talked about in allegory in the bible for instance in the Song of Solomon chapter 5 verses 5-8 where the dark maiden says

5 I rose up to open to my beloved; and my hands dropped [with] myrrh, and my fingers [with] sweet smelling myrrh, upon the handles of the lock.

6 I opened to my beloved; but my beloved had withdrawn himself, [and] was gone: my soul failed when he spake: I sought him, but I could not find him; I called him, but he gave me no answer.

7 The watchmen that went about the city found me, they smote me, they wounded me; the keepers of the walls took away my veil from me.

8 I charge you, O daughters of Jerusalem, if ye find my beloved, that ye tell him, that I [am] sick of love.

However there is another secret contained in the scriptures.

Satan/Saturn/Lucifer is both male and female.

Isaiah 14:12

How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!

In one sense it is talking about the sun as it heads down into the wintry part of the cycle….the son/sun of the morning…yes!

The sun is the morning star….the sun is a star that arrives every morning!

However Lucifer is also Venus….the feminine….Sophia…..the light bearer!

Just as the woman bears children,the darkness/Isis gives birth to light.

(Isis is the light bearer,she says the fruit she brings forth (bears) is the sun)

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

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sophia_%28name%29

And doesn’t Sofia mean “wisdom”…and isn’t that connected with Eve and “wisdom” from eating the apple….Eve is Lucifer (Lucifer means light-bearer)…..the female.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lucifer#Mythology_behind_Isaiah_14:12

And that is why Lucifer is female in the film “the ninth gate”

3c4a6cba505bad325392cefed7ea5f7b-0

Lucifer falls from heaven….a heavenly fall.

The story of Eve and the fruit is called “the fall of man” where they fall from Eden/paradise/garden/heaven……an earthly fall.

So we have two “falls.”

From that fall Adam and Eve gained wisdom,knowledge of good and bad.

Genesis 3:22 notes, “The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil.”

They became like the gods!

Nighttime is the time to receive wisdom and knowledge,the darkness is that what gives knowledge and wisdom…the occult…the hidden treasures of the bible.

You find hidden gems in the dark soil,and pearls in the deep water, hidden in the oyster shell.Notice the two elements involved,earth and water?……earth and water are the female elements….the dark maiden!

This is why the owl is a symbol of wisdom…..it is connected to night and darkness.

The_Wise_Owl

That is why occult literature (including the bible when we look under the surface) gives knowledge and wisdom….notice the owl with books. (Libra/Library/Liberty).

(The candle in the round dish representing sex/wisdom/knowing(when Adam and Eve had sex..the bible says he “knew” his wife) the straight candle is the penis/the round dish the vagina).

Knowing is connected to wisdom and also sex.

John 17:3

Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.

When talking about Adam and Eve having sex….the bible says this

Genesis 4:1

And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain, and said, I have gotten a man from the LORD.

Just another side note,when I was a Jehovah’s Witness,the JW bible (New World Translation) said this at John 17:3.

“This means everlasting life…taking in knowledge of you and of the one you sent forth”

Whereas all other bibles say this:-

Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.

You may say…what’s the difference?

“Knowing” and “taking in knowledge” are two different things entirely…you might take in knowledge of some film star from books,however you don’t know them like their husband/wife does….the bible is talking about this intimate “knowing” (gnosis).

Looking again to the owl above…isn’t the sign of Libra the start of the autumn/winter cycle/darkness…and isn’t the word “Libra” contained in library…connected to the books that the owl is sitting on.(“wisdom” comes also from books/”sex” on another higher plane)

Doesn’t Isis (Satan/darkness/female/matter) give birth to light?

“The fruit I bring forth is the sun,” she says.

The darkness gives birth to light!

This is why priests wear black robes…feminine attire….representing darkness/Libra/female/wisdom/Saturn…..and the white collar with the head representing the light arising out of the darkness.

The balance of the two forces!

priest-costume-15881

Also judges….and that is why they wear a lambs wool wig representing the light of Aries.

Dagon is a god who is connected to the sea and fish.

dagon6
Dagon coming out from the sea,and the dark and the moon….. All female symbolism…winter/dark (and even “evil” as we perceive it on our plane of consciousness).

 

atargatis
 Dagon or Oannes coming out from the sea.

If you read my blog on sex and religion…the name “Oannes”/Jonah/john is connected to the yoni.

The yoni is the vagina,the female,and it links to the fish,and the vesica piscis…(bladder of the fish).

51f173fa55b428522b04f4279d889a26
notice the vesica piscis.

Venus is also connected to the sea….just like Dagon!

6103729211_11eb863fdf

What Venus and Dagon represent is again the dark half of the year…the feminine…”the beautiful woman without mercy” as Keats calls her.

Also,Satan or Saturn,the ruler of the lower forces and planet earth in that he symbolizes time and restriction/hardship/teaches lessons.

Remember in the tree of life,the male pillar is called “mercy“and the female pillar is called “severity“,she is severe,not merciful,whereas you think it would/should be the other way round.

She is without mercy……”La belle dame sans merci.”

And is it only wordplay that Dagon who represents the darkness is pronounced “day-gone.”

I heard the above Dagon/daygone listening to an interview with an occultist.

The feminine is Satan in disguise.

“You look like an angel/walk like an angel/talk like an angel……but I got WISE (wisdom)…..you’re the devil in disguise…..oh yes you are…the devil in disguise”

That is why there is a “Bearded Venus”…the “Venus Barbata”

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

This is why Baphomet has both male and female parts.

Baphomet_Illustration_by_HauntingVisionsStock

There is a lot of symbolism going on in the above picture…let’s have a look at some of it

Notice the four elements?

FIRE coming from the head.

AIR represented by the wings.

WATER represented by the fish scales in the half circle round the penis.

EARTH represented by the goats feet.

The male/female…yin/yang.

MALE represented by the penis.

FEMALE represented by the breasts.

The shape the arms are making…giving us the hermetic saying…”As above …so below”

Or as it is said in the bible….Matthew 6:9,10

9“Pray, then, in this way: ‘Our Father who is in heaven, Hallowed be Your name. 10‘Your kingdom come. Your will be done, On earth as it is in heaven.

Notice also the two serpents around the penis of Baphomet above…..does it remind you of anything?

Hermes2C
Now thanks to Baphomet you know what the staff of Hermes is….the penis. (also the spine)

This is Mercury or Hermes……..the hermaphroditic god

And the word “hermaphrodite” consists of Hermes (mercury)….and Aphrodite (venus).

The word “herm” or “herma” is linked with “penis” also.

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

again the male/female!

And remember Hermes/Mercury is the trickster….as is Satan!

http://study.com/academy/lesson/the-greek-god-hermes-facts-myths-symbols.html

And “the greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he (she) didn’t exist”

So we have the symbols of the fish,and the goat in the symbol of Baphomet,and again isn’t the fish and goat the symbol of Capricorn?

imagesA woman’s vagina has a goat’s beard (goatee),the vagina is connected to the fish (the smell and also the Vesica Piscis),again the fish and goat!

Capricorn is connected to the fish and goat….this is the feminine,CARDINAL EARTH sign.

Some satanists have a goatee beard too,because they understand that it represents the winter part of the cycle/and the feminine/sinister,and the darkest part of winter is the winter solstice in Capricorn (midnight of the year),which is ruled by Saturn.

http://english.stackexchange.com/questions/39092/how-did-sinister-the-latin-word-for-left-handed-get-its-current-meaning

and satanists follow the left hand (female) path.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Left-hand_path_and_right-hand_path

Walter Raleigh shows us a picture of “the hidden one” in “The history of the world”

See if you can see the old goat hidden in the picture.

Title_page_The_History_of_the_World_by_Walter_Ralegh
The two arms of the person holding up the world are the horns…..the two ears are out at either side…the two breasts are the two eyes…and then you will see the beard below

The Old goat/Saturn/Satan is the ruler of the world after all!

2nd Corinthians 4:4

Satan, who is the god of this world, has blinded the minds of those who don’t believe. They are unable to see the glorious light of the Good News. They don’t understand this message about the glory of Christ, who is the exact likeness of God.”

Notice in that verse….Satan/Saturn blinds and stops people from seeing the light….again symbolism of winter/darkness.

He is Elus,(the Elus-ive one),Kronos/Chronos/Saturn.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/El_%28deity%29#Sanchuniathon

https://books.google.co.uk/books?id=UbsGAgAAQBAJ&pg=PA42&lpg=PA42&dq=Elus+kronos&source=bl&ots=N1aQ70Zr4m&sig=DS_E0FMMONFD2tL2tPfN2EYbV1o&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0CEIQ6AEwBWoVChMI0_uVjf-WxwIVQfEUCh08Ogph#v=onepage&q=Elus%20kronos&f=false

Chronos/Saturn/Santa/Satan/Old (Saint) Nick (Santa comes at the winter solstice (Capricorn) does he not?)…..Satan also brings gifts to those who do good…..remember all Gods/Goddesses/concepts/forces/symbols have a good and bad side.

For example…Venus is the Goddess/concept/force of love/desire…now love is a good thing is it not……however we also get the word “venereal” from Venus…the 7 planets or forces all have a good and bad side…7 virtues and 7 vices.

All symbols are neutral…it is our programs and prejudices and desires/actions that give them charge.

Aleister Crowley has this to say about “symbols” in “The book of Thoth.”…

001
if you’ve been following this blog and grasping some of the concepts….the footnote should also be of some interest to you! Crowley tells us to note the “N” of Jonah…..what does that mean? What does the letter “N” (Nun) mean in Aramaic/Arabic?

Santa is Saint Nicholas,Satan is also known as Old Nick is he not?

Just like Isis,Saturn has 1000 names!

Saturn is also the shadow/shade/darkness.

Whereas Jesus is the light of the world,and Satan is the shade/shadow/hidden one.

The Star of David is the 6 pointed star….which has a hexagon in the middle of it (which can also be a 2d representation of a cube)

ark3
Remember the cube has six sides….Saturn(time and restriction) has us trapped inside the box or cube of time and space…(see the blog on the Sefer Yetzirah for more on the cube of space)….when the box opens or unfolds…or it is revealed or unveiled (apocalypse or revelation)…it becomes a cross!…Jesus dies on the cross to free us from the box we are in..his death opens the box….it happens every year when the sun dies at the winter solstice and the new sun is born…….before the next box or cube arrives…see the dimensions of the box or cube of new Jerusalem in revelations…the box/cube of the new age to come!And isn’t it also convenient that when Santa/Saturn arrives we open boxes…we even call it boxing day.
102_282c
when the box opens it becomes a cross!

 

And the planet Saturn has a hexagon on its north pole also.

600px-PIA18274-Saturn-NorthPolarHexagon-Cassini-20140402

Saturn rules the dark part of the days cycle……..from sundown onwards.

And the Jewish people start their day at….sundown/sunset.

And again is it only coincidence that the Jewish new year (Rosh Hashanah) starts just at the autumnal equinox….the sunset of the year?

Rosh Hashanah means head of the year.

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

The “Jews” are the ones who celebrate the dark part of the cycle,the night/winter part of the cycle,the wisdom part of the cycle…..they are the wise ones.

They are the wise ones/the cunning ones,cunning related to “cunny”,the vagina where we get the word “cunt” from…or “cunnilingus”…again it isn’t bad,it is only a word.

 

index
notice the word “kunna” means to know which takes us back to the connection between “sex” and “knowing.”

“Honi soit qui mal y pense”……”Evil be to him who evil thinks

Kundalini contains both kund/cunt (female),and lini/lingam (male)

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

In other words….the male and the female forces in the human body.

Samuel Pepys wrote in his diary about the time he got caught with his hand up the maids skirt….

“And after supper, to have my head combed by Deb, which occasioned the greatest sorrow to me that ever I knew in this world; for my wife, coming up suddenly, did find me embracing the girl with my hand under her skirts; and indeed, I was with my hand in her cunny.”

(Diary entry “25th October 1668”)

Oops!…..maybe he should have been more “cunning.”

Cunning/wisdom/Sophia/knowing are all to do with the feminine principle….the female/winter/satan/saturn part of the cycle.

I do hope you are starting to see the patterns and connecting things for yourself,because as I keep saying,it is only you that can awaken yourself,anyone else can only be the seed planter,it is your meditation and research that can awaken your higher consciousness.

1st Corinthians 3:5-7

What then is Apollos? And what is Paul? Servants through whom you believed, even as the Lord gave opportunity to each one. I planted, Apollos watered, but God was causing the growth. So then neither the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything, but God who causes the growth.

The “God” who makes the seed grow is your higher self….your unfurling rose of higher consciousness from within yourself.

“Enlightenment”

And with that it’s time to end this blog.

Thanks for reading,fellow peoples of the planet!

 

 

 

Squaring the Circle (Wheels within wheels part four)

 

1395079788201

In one of the previous blogs (sex and religion) I stated that the compass and square (above) on one level….represents sex…..the compass being the male principle…and the square below being the female principle.

The compass (the male) on top of the female (represented by the square) with her legs wide apart.

However symbols have layers upon layers of meanings,so let’s have a look at the symbol to see if there is anything else hidden in plain sight

Let’s focus on the letter “G”…..representing “Generation” or “GAOTU”

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Architect_of_the_Universe#Freemasonry

Could the seven planets be represented by the letter “G”……yes!

And the clue to revealing it is in a system known to the esoteric schools as Gematria

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

Particularly “English Gematria” in this case.

And what is Gematria exactly?…….well it is to do with linking each letter to a number.

For instance….A is the first letter of the alphabet…so therefore has a numerical value of…1

B=2,C=3….etc etc

Now what number would the letter “G” relate to?

Well the letter “G” relates to the number 7…it is the seventh letter of the English alphabet.

And the number 7 is the number of the classical planets…the seven planets

Below shows someone with the number 7 replacing the letter “G” in the compass and square on his t-shirt.

 

masons
Also notice the 12 pointed star surrounding the compass and square…the 12 signs of the zodiac,the number 7 in the middle…representing the 7 planets the number four represented by the two points of the compass…and two points of the square. (representing the four elements). …and the hieros gamos or holy marriage between the male principle and female principle represented by the compass (male) and square (female) joined together

It can also stand for the number three in Hebrew Gematria…as the letter “Gimel” is the third letter of the Hebrew alphabet …and “Gamma” in the Greek alphabet……symbols can have layer upon layer of meaning.

Why am I telling you this about Gematria?…..because in a later blog we will be looking at the tetragrammaton (YHVH) and its link to the number 26.

Here is a freemason talking about symbols and their layers…..also how symbols link to each other….and if you read carefully…you should find the 26 in there somewhere.

http://masonicdictionary.com/numbers.html

And now to this blog …the number four and the square……

In freemasonry a mason can be called a “square-man”…or are said to be “on the square”

http://www.masonicdictionary.com/square.html

On masonic rings you can see the “square on point.”

Mens-Masonic-Antique-14kt-Yellow-Gold-White-Gold-wDiamond-Ring-171047965051
“square on point” inside the square and compass symbol
pZALE1-6935325t400
square on point next to the compass and square

Why the square on point?…..well one explanation of the square on point is that it represents the four cardinal points of the zodiac.

Why?

What are the four cardinal points of the zodiac?…..well…as I started writing this blog today we are at one of the four “points”…….the summer solstice

The four points are…. the spring equinox(aries),the summer solstice(cancer),the autumnal equinox(libra) and the winter solstice(capricorn)

They represent the four seasons,spring,summer,autumn and winter

cardinal_fixed_mutable
notice the different squares of the cardinal,fixed and mutable signs

Again…..Aries is a fire sign…..A CARDINAL FIRE sign…..it is the gateway to 3 months of spring

Capricorn is the CARDINAL EARTH sign…the gateway to the three months of winter

Libra is the CARDINAL AIR sign…gateway to the three months of autumn

Cancer is the CARDINAL WATER sign….and start of the three months of summer

The number four is throughout the bible

For instance…is it another coincidence that on the FOURTH DAY….God made the luminaries that give us our signs and SEASONS….(again there are four seasons)

Genesis 1:14-19

14 Then God said, “Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night, and let them be for signs and for seasons and for days and years;and let them be for lights in the expanse of the heavens to give light on the earth”; and it was so. 16 God made the two great lights, the greater light to govern the day, and the lesser light to govern the night; He made the stars also. 17 God placed them in the expanse of the heavens to give light on the earth, 18 and to govern the day and the night, and to separate the light from the darkness; and God saw that it was good. 19 There was evening and there was morning, a fourth day.

Four means foundation…it gives a platform on which things can be built

Can this also be the reason why when students graduate they wear a “mortar board?”

We also saw in an earlier blog that saturn teaches us lessons…saturns colour is black…and could this be why students wear black robes also?

Mortar_Board_589
some students with their mortar boards and black robes. masons use mortar boards also,and remember they are on the square. however the square is only a platform on which to build…the idea is to get off the square by building on the knowledge (platform) you have created.

The “square” of the year is the four seasons.

Our year has four seasons…spring,summer,autumn and winter.

The “square” of the day is….morning,afternoon,evening and night.

Also…spring is the morning of the year (dawn to midday)

summer is the afternoon of the year (midday to evening)

these two seasons are the “male” part of the year…the light!

Autumn is the evening of the year (evening to midnight)

Winter is the night of the year (midnight to dawn)

These two seasons are the “female” part of the year…..the darkness!

The four continues in the bible……the river that ran through Eden parted into four rivers

The Pishon,Gihon,Hiddekel and the Euphrates

Genesis 2:10-14

10 A river watering the garden flowed from Eden; from there it was separated into four headwaters. 11 The name of the first is the Pishon; it winds through the entire land of Havilah, where there is gold. 12 (The gold of that land is good; aromatic resin and onyx are also there.) 13 The name of the second river is the Gihon; it winds through the entire land of Cush.14 The name of the third river is the Tigris; it runs along the east side of Ashur. And the fourth river is the Euphrates.

Notice how one thing parts into four?

The year (one) into four seasons

The day (one) into four quarters

The Edenic river (one) into four parts.

The “ONE” God (deity/”day”ity) represented by the four letters…the Tetragrammaton!

Below is a diagram showing what each of the four letters represent.

915f88e15328f80ba6d4d3228e4078e6
Notice out of the four,two letters are male (Vav and Yod represent the penis).Two female (Heh,the opening or vagina)AS are the four elements.

The new testament (one) has four gospels

Talking about the new testament……….

When Jesus dies his garments were divided into how many parts?

John 19:23

When the soldiers crucified Jesus, they took his clothes, dividing them into four shares, one for each of them, with the undergarment remaining. This garment was seamless, woven in one piece from top to bottom.

Remember Jesus is the sun and the four parts of his “garment” are the four seasons

Why the four?

Lon Milo Duquette says that to understand what “God” is…..”The One”…..is a difficult concept to get your mind around…..looked at as one thing,it is hard to make comparisons or to grasp what the “oneness” or “God” is.

We can divide the one into two to get some idea of what “the one ” is…and that is the polarity…duality.

Male and female

Good and evil

Light and darkness

We grasp that concept well.It helps us compare and contrast things.

Genesis 3:22

“And the LORD God said, “The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil.

However when we divide it further into “four-ness” we can start to examine things and compare and contrast what the “oneness” is,in even more depth.

That is why God’s name is divided into four letters….the Tetragrammaton.

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

It is to help us in our understanding of what is going on!

Again that is why there are four gospel accounts of Jesus’ life and ministry….

Each of them emphasizes a unique aspect of his sacrifice and ministry. Matthew’s focus is on Christ being the son of David and a King. Mark highlights the suffering servant aspect of his ministry. John proclaims Jesus is the One and Only begotten Son of God. And Luke showcases him as the Perfect Man.

Again Lon Milo Duquette tells us that the Hebrew kabbalah divides the human soul into four parts that reflect…on a microcosmic level…universal levels of consciousness and being that correspond to the four letters of the Tetragrammaton…Yod,He,Vav,He

The four suits of the tarot represent the same thing

Wands,swords,Cups and Disks

Also matter (one) splits into the four elements of the ancients…fire,water,air and earth.

The four parts of the soul and their correspondences are:-

Chiah…the life force…the highest part of the human soul,which corresponds to the Yod of the tetragrammaton,the element of Fire,the suit of Wands in the tarot,and the level of Atziluth in the tree of life.

Neshamah….the second highest part of the human soul,which corresponds to the first Heh of the tetragrammaton,the element of Water,the suit of Cups in the tarot,and the level of Briah in the kabbalistic tree of life.

Ruach…the next level,corresponds with Vav in the tetragrammaton,the element of Air in the four elements,the suit of Swords in the tarot,and the level of Yetzirah in the kabbalistic tree of life.

Nefesh….is the lowest part of the soul,the animal part of the soul and it corresponds with the final Heh in the tetragrammaton,the element of Earth in the four elements,the Disks,Coins or Pentacles in the tarot,any of those three can be used to represent the same suit…and also the level of Assiah in the kabbalistic tree of life.

http://www.lashtal.com/wiki/Parts_of_the_Soul

Again as with all other religious or spiritual ideas and concepts,they are represented by all cultures with different symbols and ideas,although representing the same idea,it is the spectrum…they are saying the same thing from a differing perspective.

An example…..if a bus crashed…….two people at opposite sides of the road would describe the same scene differently from differing viewpoints…even though describing the same thing

One may say the advertising board on the bus was a cereal advert…and the person on the opposite side of the road would say it was an advert for coffee…when both can be correct…although differing.

Everyone sees the same thing through their own lens…and this applies to cultures and these esoteric concepts.

This is why the Jewish people represent the “fourness” as the four letters…. tetragrammaton

Ezekiel saw the four as a chariot (merkabah) with the four living creatures….man,bull,lion and eagle

Kabbalah has…….the four worlds!

the lamassu contains the four fixed signs of the zodiac as does the vision of ezekiel…namely…the lion,bull,man and eagle

This is why we have the four corners of the world

And this is also why the fourth album from the amazing led zeppelin was called four symbols

If you think I’m stretching it…..Jimmy Page (guitarist supreme) understands this knowledge very well I would assume.

He used to own an occult bookstore called “equinox”

Equinox-Bookstore-640x360
isn’t the equinox to do with the two forces meeting?…the male and female…at the spring equinox..when light overcomes the darkness…and autumn equinox when darkness overcomes the light…light and darkness come together at the equinox.

Led Zeppelin: Physical Graffiti 40th Anniversary Remaster

And Jimmy Page once owned Boleskine house…former home of Aleister Crowley.

Could this understanding of the “fourness” be why the Qur’an allows a man (the fifth element/spirit) to have four wives….the four elements?

http://www.islamcan.com/common-questions-about-islam/why-does-quran-allow-muslim-men-to-have-four-wives.shtml#.VbTCbPnLKhY

the four elements represent matter as stated before………..matter is where the word mother/mater/ma/matrix/meat comes from.

also the Egyptian Goddess Ma’at

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

notice she is concerned with justice and weighing on the scales?…..this corresponds to the sign of libra……the start of the autumn/winter part of the zodiacal cycle…the female half of the year…..the dark part of the year….the dying part of the year……all growth stops at this part of the cycle

rsz_1zodiac_sine_wave
SEE THE SCALES AT THE AUTUMN EQUINOX AS THE SINE WAVE GOES INTO THE NEGATIVE/FEMALE/DARK/DEATH ASPECT? THIS IS THE TIME OF NO GROWTH…DEATH…..The good times are over…..hard times are ahead

Do you remember in a previous blog I said that spring and summer were allegorically the sun orgasming his rays/sperm/life activating forces over the earth

Well at this part of the year the orgasming sun rays are stopping….this is why an orgasm is called in French “la petite mort”…”the little death”

The good times are at an end!…your five seconds of summer are over!

The scorpion of scorpio just backstabbed you…and is it a coincidence that scorpio is linked to the genitals in the zodiac of the body?

Just as the tide comes in and moves out…….everything has this tidal movement

From blinking…we move from dark to light and back again.

We sleep and awaken.

we rise vertically during the day (male principle) and rest horizontally at night (female principle)

summer to winter……light to dark

good times,bad times…isn’t that another led zeppelin song?….he he

all nature has this constant movement and rhythm

In the book of Daniel chapter 7 can you remember how many beasts he saw in vision?

Yet again it is the four

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daniel_7

Daniel_4_Beasts
notice also the four winds?

In effect then……all religions are arguing and fighting over nothing,each religion sees the same thing from different angles and expresses it in their own cultural way!

No religion is the right religion…….they all have a little piece of the same thing.

“A little piece of blue sky”

It is when you bring the wholeness into oneself….then you awaken…and the knowledge will bubble up inside your own self like a never ending fountain as you see everything connecting…….everywhere…when you start to see the patterns and gain more understanding.

You will never need to go anywhere outside yourself to get water or refreshment…no religion or person outside yourself can give this knowing..it will come from inside you!

When the pupil is ready….the teacher will appear!

However it takes real effort,struggle and sacrifice to attain it

Luke 13:24

“Keep on struggling to enter through the narrow door, because I tell you that many people will try to enter, but won’t be able to do so.”

It is a paradigm shift…..a change of consciousness…an awakening…….a renaissance…..a new birth.

John 4:9-14

The Samaritan woman said to him, “You are a Jew and I am a Samaritan woman. How can you ask me for a drink?” (For Jews do not associate with Samaritans.[a])

10 Jesus answered her, “If you knew the gift of God and who it is that asks you for a drink, you would have asked him and he would have given you living water.”

11 “Sir,” the woman said, “you have nothing to draw with and the well is deep. Where can you get this living water? 12 Are you greater than our father Jacob, who gave us the well and drank from it himself, as did also his sons and his livestock?”

13 Jesus answered, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, 14 but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”

This inherent understanding of the “fourness” is why we also have

four horsemen of the apocalypse

8293066881_0c9dc28f70_o
ARE YOU STARTING TO NOTICE THE ZODIAC IN THE FOUR HORSEMEN? A RIDER WITH A SET OF SCALES ON A BLACK HORSE…LIBRA…SATURN EXALTS IN LIBRA….SATURNS COLOUR IS BLACK! A RIDER WITH A SWORD…SCORPIO….MARS RULES SCORPIO…ALSO THE RED IS THE COLOUR OF MARS…HENCE THE RED HORSE. A MAN WITH A HORSE AND BOW?…SAGITTARIUS! THESE THREE SIGNS ARE THE SIGNS OF AUTUMN…….DEATH!….THE LIGHT DIMINISHES AFTER THE AUTUMN EQUINOX…WE ARE HEADING DOWN INTO DARKNESS AND DEATH…HENCE THE PALE HORSE OF DEATH FOLLOWING THOSE SIGNS. The book of revelation is telling us about the end of a natural cycle…..the tide is heading back out.

Also in revelation…Jesus represents the light part of the zodiac….the lamb who is worthy to open the scrolls…. The lamb = Aries (cardinal fire) ….or the lion of the tribe of Judah….Leo… (Leo is fixed fire)…two zodiacal fire signs…connected with the sun and light.

Revelation 5:5 and 6

Then one of the elders said to me, “Do not weep! See, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has triumphed. He is able to open the scroll and its seven seals.”

Then I saw a Lamb, looking as if it had been slain, standing at the center of the throne, encircled by the four living creatures and the elders. The Lamb had seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven spirits of God sent out into all the earth.

What do “cardinal fire”…”fixed fire”….”mutable fire” mean?

Lon Milo Duquette explained it one time and used the element of fire to illustrate.

He said a cardinal fire sign is the sign that bursts out suddenly and says….”Hi I’m Fire” like a jack in the box…and punches you on the nose while introducing itself……think of a match igniting and all it’s energy

894771156_682000a830
the burst of all the energy of the cardinal signs this would represent aries…that brings about spring and the light in the year…overcoming darkness

He then says that fixed fire is the fire that is fully established…..or as Mr Duquette explains….if you looked at a picture of fire in an encyclopedia…..it would have a picture of the fixed fire there…the match fully lit….or a “roaring” fire.

index
match fully established….this is what the fixed signs represent………this would represent the roaring lion of leo…the fixed fire sign (funny how we even call the fire at it’s height …a “roaring” fire…roaring like the lion of leo)

Then he says the mutable sign is the fire dying…or as lon milo says….”yeah…I’m fire…but I’m flexible….whatever…(shrugs)”….or like the match about to extinguish

Burnout concept. Closeup of burning match, black background.
the match almost extinguished….this represents the sign of sagittarius…the mutable fire sign…….this represents jesus being stabbed in the side by the SPEAR of the centurion/centaur…(sign of sagittarius) and crying out to his father as his life force is almost extinguished…like a burnt out candle or match.

These are what the cardinal,fixed and mutable signs mean.

Now hopefully you will be seeing the patterns and the zodiac….once hidden right in front of your eyes coming to light as you grasp these patterns within yourself

Back to the “fourness” again.

The four horses of apollo

Ilion---metopa
THE HORSES REPRESENT THE FOUR SEASONS AND APOLLO…THE SUN…SEE THE RAYS AROUND HIS HEAD?

Four winds

Four Cardinal Directions

The Cross in all its forms with its four parts

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

900px-Flag_of_South_Korea.svg

And the corner stone…a corner is the angle where two sides meet….see compass and square above…see also two equinoxes,dark and light meet…..it brings wholeness,equilibrium…hence the equinoxes…and isn’t one of the equinoxes in libra?

Isn’t the word libra hidden in equilibrium?

Also “equilibrium” means “when two forces meet and are balanced”

And it just so happens that the symbol for libra is the balances…the scales

Astrology is the key to everything that is going on in nature,and it is the key to understanding religion.

However it is hidden just under the surface to most folks,and they will never see it.

If I could offer any advice at all to anyone…..it would be learn the 12 signs of the zodiac and where they are in relation to the yearly cycle…and learn the seven planets and in which zodiacal house they rule….and slowly like a jigsaw puzzle…you will start to see the picture emerge.

Usually when you start a jigsaw…first you find the four corners…then the edges…then it starts to take shape!

When I was a Jehovah’s witness,I used to laugh at the ancients thinking that a turtle held up the world….well the last laugh is on me….not knowing that the ancients were symbolizing the “fourness” in nature ….and the ever changing world which moves very slowly…and also the stability and foundation of the earth.

notice the ouroborus (snake eating it’s own tail) which represents change and eternity….the snake is chosen for change as it sheds its skin

As said in one of the first blogs….The four states of matter

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

57995950
The four elements represent the four states of matter

four fundamental forces of physics

strong nuclear force=fire

weak nuclear force=air

(these are the two masculine principles of the four elements)

symbolized by the upright triangle

and electro-magnetism=water

gravity=earth

water and earth are the two female principles symbolized by the downward facing triangles

Level-45-03-elements1

 

Four main blood groups

A, B, AB and O

Four nucleotides in DNA

adenine,cytosine,thymine,guanine

Aren’t the four nucleotides the building blocks of life…the platform?

Also the four beats in music

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beat_%28music%29

Aren’t the four beats the platform (mortar board) in which to build your song structure?

In chemistry…the four building blocks of our body are CHON

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

Carbon=earth

Hydrogen=water

Oxygen =air

Nitrogen=fire

 

Remember there is also a fifth element…ether……the fifth element is the activator

It is the quintessence…again quint meaning five….and the essence

There are five platonic solids that correspond to the five elements

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

geometryshapes
notice the fifth element (ether) is the dodecahedron?…the twelve?…..this connects to the twelve signs of the zodiac.

Four decks of cards…..etc etc

In the world of numbers we have the four also….add,subtract,multiply,divide

So when ezekiel and john described the four living creatures…they were telling us about this ancient hidden knowledge.

It was a knowledge or a knowing of the forces of nature put into poetry,allegory,myth and scripture to be hidden to the profane or those with no interest……and yet be there for those who want to seek and find it.

Well that’s this blog done……please share if you can.

Thanks for reading!

Turn! Turn! Turn! (wheels within wheels part two)

Hi folks!

Before we jump straight into this blog…if you have little to no knowledge of the zodiac and its signs/the seven planets……and the four elements……please read the first blogs to give some background as to how this blog came about

https://biblodiac.wordpress.com/2014/05/10/the-bible-and-the-zodiac/

https://biblodiac.wordpress.com/2014/05/15/the-hidden-knowledge/

Again…before this blog gets underway…I said in the previous “wheels within wheels ” blog you can get a lot of bible stories from looking at the decans of the zodiac…the decans being the three ten-degree sections of each sign of the zodiac (each sign takes up 30 degrees of the 360 degree circle of the zodiac)

Can you remember the three decans of Cancer from the last blog?

Cancer decans are…..Ursa Minor(the little bear),Ursa Major(the great bear),Argo(the ship)

the-gospel-in-the-stars-51-638
notice the “lesser” and “greater” sheepfolds also? …..if you read the gospels…those decans might make you think of some gospel stories about a sheepfold

 

Isn’t it another coincidence that argo is a….ship!…..ARK!

Also we have two animals…the great bear and little bear (ursa major and ursa minor)

Again….coincidence?……an ark and two animals?

add to that coincidence the fact that cancer is a WATER sign…(the flood)

http://www.astrology.com.tr/water-signs.asp

so now we have water,an ark and two animals……

anything else?

well…we actually have more animals connected to cancer……in the actual constellation of cancer we have “Asellus Borealis” and “Asellus Australis”….the two donkeys!..another two animals to go in the argo!

image008

Now we have two bears and two donkeys next to the argo…ARK!

(can you also see the story of the Jason and the argo-nauts in the story…as they go looking for the golden fleece (the sun in aries the ram)…i.e the start of spring bringing back the sun from the months of darkness

And funnily enough if you take the first letter of all the months after the summer solstice has been and gone….(J)uly,(A)ugust,(S)eptember,(O)ctober,(N)ovember….you get……JASON!

Cancer is the top of the “mountain” of the zodiac….it is the acme…the heights…the pinnacle…the highest the sun will get to in the year…the longest day is in cancer

and doesn’t the ark land on a mountain?

The crab is the symbol of cancer…in Egypt the scarab beetle was the symbol of cancer

The tarot card that corresponds to the sign of cancer is “the chariot”

http://www.biddytarot.com/tarot-card-meanings/major-arcana/chariot/

see if you can find further connections for yourself,with the sign of cancer…its decans and stars in its constellations…..and neighbouring constellations also….and also “the chariot” tarot card….it will take effort…but it is very rewarding when you see all the connections for yourself

for instance…the crab has a suit of armour…a shell…the scarab has “armour” also

and on the chariot tarot card we have someone in a suit of armour

thoth-chariot
notice also…the four living creatures…bull,eagle,man and lion…and funnily enough…a crab above his head…the sign of cancer

 

It all means something!….see if you can find anything else for yourself

“When the pupil is ready the teacher will appear”…..YOU are both the student…AND the teacher!

however….back to this blog talking about another “wheel”

The wheel we are concerned with this time is the wheel of the zodiac

The glorious twelve!

The cycle of the twelve

The twelve signs of the zodiac!

the zodiac wheel

 

 

Turn! Turn! Turn! (to Everything There Is a Season)

Pete Seeger wrote the above song (made famous by The Byrds)……and it is true…everything does have it’s season

However did you know that Pete Seeger got the lyrics to the song from the bible?

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

“To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, a time to reap that which is planted;
A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;
A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together;
A time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.”

notice the polarities?

born/die…plant/reap

weep/laugh…break down/build up

war/peace….tear apart/sew together

kill/heal…..cast away/gather

 

The Kybalion (do not get confused with Kabbalah..they are different) has seven principles all concerned with natural concepts…..they are as follows

1/The principle of mentalism

“The Universe is Mental–held in the Mind of THE
ALL.”–The Kybalion.

(The principle of Mentalism embodies the idea that “All is Mind,the universe is mental”)

2/The principle of correspondence

“As above, so below; as below, so above.”–The Kybalion.

(The Principle of Correspondence embodies the idea that there is always a correspondence between the laws of phenomena of the various “planes” of being and life)

or another way of saying it…“As above so below”

3/The principle of vibration

“Nothing rests; everything moves; everything
vibrates.”–The Kybalion.

(The Principle of Vibration embodies the idea that motion is manifest in everything in the Universe, that nothing rests, and everything moves, vibrates, and circles.)

4/The principle of polarity

“Everything is dual; everything has poles; everything
has its pair of opposites; like and unlike are the same;
opposites are identical in nature, but different in degree;
extremes meet; all truths are but half-truths; all paradoxes
may be reconciled.”–The Kybalion.

(The Principle of Polarity embodies the idea that everything is dual, everything has two poles, and everything has its opposite.)

everything has two poles?….hmmm

RWS_Tarot_02_High_Priestess

THE “J” and “B” on the card above stand for Jachin and Boaz

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boaz_and_Jachin

it means the two polarities…the male…Jachin

and the female…Boaz

jachinboaz3

In Kaballah the two pillars are called the pillar of mercy (male)

and the pillar of severity (female)

however…wouldn’t you think that the pillar of mercy should be a feminine trait?

and should not the pillar of severity be a masculine trait?

you would think so……however…here we have the fourness again….the masculine contains the feminine

and the feminine contains the masculine…..just like the yin/yang has the fourness…as does the compass and square…see previous blogs for more info on this

5/The Principle of Rhythm

(The Principle of Rhythm embodies the truth that in everything there is manifested a measured motion, a to and fro, a flow and inflow, a swing backward and forward, a pendulum-like movement.)

or as the Kybalion also says….“everything has it’s tides” everything has a “toing and froing”

the tide comes in…and it goes out…….the summer must eventually give way to winter and vice versa

“Everything flows out and in; everything has its tides;
all things rise and fall; the pendulum-swing manifests
in everything; the measure of the swing to the right,
is the measure of the swing to the left; rhythm
compensates”–The Kybalion.

6/the principle of cause and effect

(The Principle of Cause and Effect explains that there is a cause for every effect, and an effect for every cause.)

It also states that there is no such thing as chance, that chance is merely a term indicating extant causes not recognized or perceived.

“Every Cause has its Effect; every Effect has its Cause;
everything happens according to Law; Chance is but a
    name for Law not recognized; there are many planes of
causation, but nothing escapes the Law.”–The Kybalion.

for instance the “chance” of throwing a six on the dice every time…….if you knew angles and speed (the unrecognized law) to throw the dice to a microscopic extent..you could throw a six every time…it wouldn’t be chance

7/the principle of gender

“Gender is in everything; everything has its Masculine
and Feminine Principles; Gender manifests on all
planes.”–The Kybalion.

(The Principle of Gender embodies the idea that gender is manifested in everything.)

Gender is manifested as the Masculine and Feminine principles, and manifests itself on all planes.

The kybalion also tells us that there are those among us who understand these principles and can use the laws to gain advantage over others who do not understand the concepts and are tossed about by these laws rather than using them to their own advantage

you can get a free audiobook of the kybalion at the link below….I would highly recommend it….it furthered my understanding of these concepts by leaps and boundshttp://thoughtaudio.com/titlelist/TA0094-Kybalion/index.html

and you can also download it and put it on your mp3 player…for free!

Back to the twelve signs now

The zodiac is a wheel that turns…..it has its twelve signs and each comes in its turn…and gives way to the next in turn

The poet Manilius…celebrated in the days of Augustus Caesar,wrote this about the twelve signs

“Now Constellations, Muse, and signs rehearse,
In order, let them sparkle in thy verse.
Those which obliquely round the burning Zone,
And bear the Summer and the Winter Sun,
Those first: then those which roll a different way
From West: nor Heaven’s Diurnal whirl obey:
Which Nights serene disclose, and which create
The steady Rules, and fix the Laws of Fate.

First Aries, glorious in his Golden Wool,
Looks back and wonders at the mighty Bull,
Whose back-parts first appear: He bending lies
With Threat’ning Head, and calls the Twins to rise,
They clasp for fear, and mutually embrace;
And next the Twins with an unsteady pace
Bright Cancer rolls: then Leo shakes his mane:
And following Virgo calms his rage again:
Then Day and Night weigh’d in Libra’s Scales,
Equal awhile, at last the Night prevails,
And longer grown the heavier scale inclines
And draws bright Scorpius from the Winter signs:
Him Centaur follows with an aiming Eye
His Bow full drawn and ready to let fly:
Next narrow Horns the twisted Caper shows,
And from Aquarius’ Urn a Flood o’erflows.
Near their loved Waves cold Pisces take their seat,
With Aries join and make the round complete.”

Occult literature tells that we can find the twelve signs of the zodiac in the “blessing of Jacob”

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blessing_of_Jacob

This occurs in Genesis chapter 49…where Jacob is on his deathbed and gathers his sons to give each of them a blessing

Maitre_Jacob_Blessing_his_Sons
Jacob blessing his sons

The first son to get his blessing is Reuben in chapter Genesis 49:3,4

Reuben, thou art my firstborn, my might, and the beginning of my strength, the excellency of dignity, and the excellency of power:

Unstable as water, thou shalt not excel; because thou wentest up to thy father’s bed; then defiledst thou it: he went up to my couch.

at the end of verse four Jacob is alluding to Reuben sleeping with Jacobs concubine Bilhah

Genesis 35:22

“While Israel was living in that region, Reuben went in and slept with his father’s concubine Bilhah, and Israel (Jacob) heard of it.”

However did you also notice that Jacob said that Reuben was as unstable as water?

and in the zodiac the only sign containing water is Aquarius…in fact the symbol of Aquarius looks like this

aquarius-labelnotice the waves?……the unstable water

1/Reuben represents Aquarius!

The next blessing is bestowed on two brothers at once….unusual….why two?

Genesis 49:5-7

“Simeon and Levi are brethren; instruments of cruelty are in their habitations.

O my soul, come not thou into their secret; unto their assembly, mine honour, be not thou united: for in their anger they slew a man, and in their selfwill they digged down a wall.

Cursed be their anger, for it was fierce; and their wrath, for it was cruel: I will divide them in Jacob, and scatter them in Israel”

well there is one sign of the zodiac that has two brothers in it….Gemini

86cfd2333cd6c91c95eb7391b136b007
the twins of gemini

 

What two brothers does Gemini contain?…Castor and Pollux..the Dioscuri…the polydeuces

and isn’t it strange that both sets of brothers have a similar story?

The story involves revenge for their sister…and slaughter of the men of a city

in the case of Simeon and Levi it is the rape of their sister Dinah by Shechem

and in the story of Castor and Pollux it is the rape of their sister Helen

and the slaughtering of a city in revenge

https://books.google.co.uk/books?id=-wo9FDUhLwUC&pg=PA217&lpg=PA217&dq=simeon+levi+castor+pollux+dinah+helen&source=bl&ots=uxCuhD7nnt&sig=XUWj9_Y9xSc6_Zv1ZQYxb1g3x-M&hl=en&sa=X&ei=YGBXVZu_E8-R7Aa34IDYCQ&ved=0CCQQ6AEwAQ#v=onepage&q=simeon%20levi%20castor%20pollux%20dinah%20helen&f=false

https://books.google.co.uk/books?id=aZdTRCHSN2gC&pg=PA20&dq=castor+pollux+destroyed+attica&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0CCkQ6AEwAWoVChMIqICCw7THxwIVsW7bCh0tpQHZ#v=onepage&q=castor%20pollux%20destroyed%20attica&f=false

and did you notice Jacob also says…”I will divide them”

and in the myth of Castor and Pollux weren’t they divided?

Castor was killed and became a mortal in Hades and Pollux remained immortal

2/Simeon and Levi are the brothers representing Gemini

Next brother is Judah…..Genesis 49:8,9

Judah, thou art he whom thy brethren shall praise: thy hand shall be in the neck of thine enemies; thy father’s children shall bow down before thee.

Judah is a lion’s whelp: from the prey, my son, thou art gone up: he stooped down, he couched as a lion, and as an old lion; who shall rouse him up?

Judah is compared to a lions whelp

now what sign of the zodiac contains a lion?

Leo is the sign of the lion…Leo (july-august) is the hottest part of the year in the northern hemisphere…the sun with its long rays……the lion with its mane

eclion

lion-of-the-tribe-of-judah

just a coincidence?

3/Judah is Leo

Next Zebulun at Genesis 49:13

Zebulun shall dwell at the haven of the sea; and he shall be for an haven of ships; and his border shall be unto Zidon.”

Of all the animals in the zodiac…which would dwell at the haven of the sea?

There are possibly two…the two fish of Pisces…..and the crab of cancer….however…notice it says “He” not “They”

There is only one….the Crab……Cancer…the home of the crab is usually close to the shore…the haven of ships

and cancer is also a genus of crabs!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cancer_%28genus%29

cancer

4/Zebulun is Cancer

Next Issachar at Genesis 49:14,15

14 Issachar is a strong ass couching down between two burdens:

15 And he saw that rest was good, and the land that it was pleasant; and bowed his shoulder to bear, and became a servant unto tribute.

the name Issachar means “hireling” or “servant”

The ass or ox is the servant of man…both are “beasts of burden” that pull things in helping the labour of man

and Taurus is an earth sign……Taurus arrives at the time of year for plowing and planting and those beasts of burden help with that work

https://books.google.co.uk/books?id=-wo9FDUhLwUC&pg=PA216&dq=light+of+egypt+%22taurus,on+the+esoteric+planisphere,is+occupied+by+issachar,which+means+hireling+or+servant%22&hl=en&sa=X&ei=SmBYVZu_KoH3UszcgZAE&ved=0CCoQ6AEwAA#v=onepage&q=light%20of%20egypt%20%22taurus%2Con%20the%20esoteric%20planisphere%2Cis%20occupied%20by%20issachar%2Cwhich%20means%20hireling%20or%20servant%22&f=false

5/Issachar represents Taurus

Genesis 49:16

16 Dan shall judge his people, as one of the tribes of Israel.

17 Dan shall be a serpent by the way, an adder in the path, that biteth the horse heels, so that his rider shall fall backward.

If you have read any of the previous blogs …you will know the sign of Libra the scales is connected to law,courts and judgment

in fact you see the set of scales connected with courts…the scales of justice

Scales-of-Justice-01

Dan represents Libra…..in fact all of the autumn signs get a mention in connection with Dan….starting with Libra the judge/law/justice

just to recap the three autumn signs are respectively…Libra,Scorpio,Sagittarius

libra-scorpio-sagittarius-zodiac-sign-horoscope-stars-circle-constellations-set-three-signs-designer-38959876

scorpio can be represented by a serpent as well as a scorpion and an eagle

http://www.edgemagazine.net/2009/11/scorpio/

and Sagittarius is a horse and rider……

sagittariusand isn’t it strange that those three in a row are mentioned in those verses

16 Dan shall judge his people, as one of the tribes of Israel.

17 Dan shall be a serpent by the way, an adder in the path, that biteth the horse heels, so that his rider shall fall backward.

6/Dan is Libra the judge

Next we have Gad at Genesis 49 verse 19

19 Gad, a troop shall overcome him: but he shall overcome at the last

Gad is overcome by a troop (or little army)

what signs are connected with armies and troops?…….the answer is those signs connected with mars…..and there are only two….Scorpio and Aries…Scorpio is ruled by mars as is Aries

Scorpio is connected with generation and the sexual organs…sensual delights

and this is what is meant by being overcome with a troop…this is the fall of man through sex…the little troop according to esoteric literature is the little army of sperm

dan scorpio 001
the “seminal fluids” are connected with “the troop” also

 

7/Gad is Scorpio

Next we have Asher in verse 20 of Genesis 49

20 Out of Asher his bread shall be fat, and he shall yield royal dainties.

Again,if you have been following the blog….and joining the dots on your own…you will know the house of bread is Virgo….you will see the connection in my blog about “the eternal virgin”….Virgo holds an ear of wheat….Virgo is when the harvest begins…..in the human body Virgo corresponds to the stomach….”the bread basket”

5331039_298x343

s-l1000
He He…you get the point though

 

da_zodiac___virgo_by_yukimiyasawa-d38ffse
again…notice the ear of wheat

 

what about when the verse says “he shall yield royal dainties”….well didn’t the king “Jesus” come from Bethlehem?…and doesn’t Bethlehem mean…”house of bread?”

see the first paragraph of the wiki page below

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bethlehem

__house-of-bread-copy

11.14.Week5Header-1024x441

8/Asher is Virgo

Next…Naphtali….Genesis 49:21

21 Naphtali is a hind let loose: he giveth goodly words.

Next we have Naphtali…what sign does he represent?

notice he is called a hind?….a hind is a deer….a climbing animal!….as is a goat…what time of the year do we usually see deer in cards and tales?

SantaDeer

At Christmas!….Christmas is in the sign of Capricorn….also…..in the picture below we will see summer represented by a lion…and winter by a deer

tumblr_manx5dX2sc1rzhtlmo1_1280
on the far right….notice the DEER representing the winter part of the cycle…the feminine part of the cycle of the year

Naphtali means “my struggle” and this is when the light returns (the daylight starts increasing again…light struggling with the darkness….in the bible this is represented by “the slaughter of the innocents” by Herod) and little Jesus being taken into Egypt to hide from Herod’s wrath…

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Massacre_of_the_Innocents

or in revelation…into the wilderness to hide from the wild beast

it is also represented in the old testament by Moses struggling with Pharaoh to set his people free…(which Pharaoh does eventually at Aries…..symbolized by the lambs blood on the door lintels of the Israelites)

Both Herod and Pharaoh represent the darkness of winter…and the weak but ever strengthening sun is represented by Jesus and Moses….and they struggle for dominion

it is the yearly natural struggle between light and dark

in the lion king it is the struggle between scar and little simba…(the weak sun…no mane)

and it also says in the bible verse above…he giveth goodly words…and we do too at Christmas

goodwill-to-all-men
the goodly words we give at christmas time…in capricorn represented as naphtali in the blessing of jacob

9/Naphtali is Capricorn

Next Genesis 49:22-26

22 Joseph is a fruitful bough, even a fruitful bough by a well; whose branches run over the wall:

23 The archers have sorely grieved him, and shot at him, and hated him:

24 But HIS BOW abode in strength, and the arms of his hands were made strong by the hands of the mighty God of Jacob; (from thence is the shepherd, the stone of Israel)

25 Even by the God of thy father, who shall help thee; and by the Almighty, who shall bless thee with blessings of heaven above, blessings of the deep that lieth under, blessings of the breasts, and of the womb:

26 The blessings of thy father have prevailed above the blessings of my progenitors unto the utmost bound of the everlasting hills: they shall be on the head of Joseph, and on the crown of the head of him that was separate from his brethren.

The “archers that hated Joseph” were his jealous brothers who sold him into slavery

You might also notice that this parallels the story of Saul hating David and throwing a spear at him

1st Samuel 19:9,10

“Now there was an evil spirit from the LORD on Saul as he was sitting in his house with his spear in his hand, and David was playing the harp with his hand

Saul tried to pin him to the wall with his spear, but David eluded him as Saul drove the spear into the wall.”

(Sagittarius is a centaur…and you will see the centaur either with a bow or a spear…and it does mention a bow in the bible verse above)

The only sign of the zodiac with a bow is Sagittarius…..just a coincidence?

 

98d198d0b14cfb6fe920cad66ae87065sagittariusTo be precise Sagittarius is the centaur “Chiron”…and again….Chiron is wounded by an arrow fired by Hercules….I am sure you will see the parallels with the Jacob’s blessing of Joseph above in the myth of Chiron

http://www.comfychair.org/~cmbell/myth/sagittarius.html

You will also see the parallels with Joseph,David and Chiron in the story of Hercules and one of his twelve labours…….that of fighting the Nemean lion

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nemean_lion

In Genesis 49:24 it also talks about a shepherd..and that alludes to the sign of Aries

24 But his BOW abode in strength, and the arms of his hands were made strong by the hands of the mighty God of Jacob; (from thence is the shepherd, the stone of Israel)

now the amazing thing about all these myths when you put them together…they are talking about the element “FIRE”….why?

the fiery triplicity of the zodiac are the following….Aries(shepherd),Sagittarius(bow,centaur,chiron) and finally Leo (the Nemean lion and Hercules fighting it with his bow)

http://astrology.about.com/od/foundations/p/FireElement.htm

Hercules first labour contains all three of the fiery signs actually

Hercules fires his bow at the lion……(Sagittarius and Leo)….however there is also a ram (Aries) in the story

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nemean_lion#The_First_Labour_of_Hercules

In the above page it says the following

“he (Hercules) met Molorchos, a shepherd who had lost his son to the lion, saying that if he came back within 30 days, a ram would be sacrificed

each of the signs of the zodiac take up 30 degrees of the zodiac also…..and that corresponds to the “30 days”

10/Joseph is Sagittarius

Next we have Benjamin (meaning “son of the right side”)

The right side is the favoured side….the East where the sun rises each day

Genesis 49:27

“Benjamin shall ravin as a wolf: in the morning he shall devour the prey, and at night he shall divide the spoil.”

what planet and sign is the wolf connected to?

well for one thing…the planet mars is connected to the wolf…see the first paragraph in the page below

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mars_%28mythology%29#Sacred_animals

and mars is where the month “march” comes from

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

and March is when the sign of Aries arrives

notice in the bible verse above it also talks about “devouring the prey?”

sheep are among the prey of wolves

Mars rules Aries

Mars is connected to wolves and Aries is connected to sheep

the bible connects the two also

Matthew 7:15

“Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves.”

remember false prophets arrive just as the Christ arrives…and the arrival of the light is at dawn…..dawn is connected to Aries…the dawn of the year is in the spring equinox……Aries

“Wolf in sheep’s clothing” is a hidden symbol of Aries

a-wolf-in-sheeps-clothing
Aries is connected with both wolves and sheep

the verse above also says “Benjamin(Aries) shall “divide the spoils”

And Aries does divide the spoils…the spring equinox separates the winter from the spring…the darkness from the light……the daylight becomes longer then the nightime…they divide

again…Mars rules Aries

11/Benjamin is Aries

 

and the blessings of Jacob stop there

28 All these are the twelve tribes of Israel: and this is it that their father spake unto them, and blessed them; every one according to his blessing he blessed them.

Strangely there seem to be only 11 signs mentioned in that blessing don’t there?

We seem to be missing one of the twelve signs…and that sign is Pisces..the two fish

However…..this matter can be resolved

Let’s go back a chapter to Genesis 48:5,6 where Jacob is talking to Joseph

Now your two sons, who were born to you in the land of Egypt before I came to you in Egypt, are mine; Ephraim and Manasseh shall be mine, as Reuben and Simeon are. “But your offspring that have been born after them shall be yours; they shall be called by the names of their brothers in their inheritance.…

Jacob says to Joseph…”your two sons are mine”…..the two sons belong to Jacob…….and the verse goes on to say…any born after those two belong to Joseph!

In the above verse Jacob claims Ephraim and Manasseh as his own…and those two fit neatly just like a jigsaw into the sign of Pisces…the two fish

why?…..well let’s go forward to Genesis 48:16

“the Angel who has delivered me from all harm –may he bless these boys. May they be called by my name and the names of my fathers Abraham and Isaac, and may they increase greatly on the earth.”

the word “increase” is “dagah” in hebrew

http://biblehub.com/lexicon/genesis/48-16.htm

“and let them grow
dagah  (daw-gaw’)
to move rapidly; to spawn, i.e. become numerous — grow.

and the word “dagah”….also means “fish”

http://biblehub.com/hebrew/1710.htm

Fish are known to breed/multiply like crazy

Do you remember another famous account of growth or multiplication with fish?….Jesus feeding the multitude with …how many fish?…..Two fish…again the sign of pisces…because Jesus was the messiah for the Piscean age

piscesThe two brothers Ephraim and Manasseh are the two fish of Pisces!

12/Ephraim and Manasseh represent Pisces!

And that gives us the final piece of the jigsaw…the twelve signs of the zodiac in the blessing of Jacob!

The next blog will be about the sevens
