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!

Thanks for reading!

The “Tom” Riddle.

It’s About Time……….to talk about our old friend Saturn again!

20019204c9eccd00aebfb086cd3f4b8d
Notice the long beard. Whether Saturn,Chronos or Santa…they all have the long white beard. Note also the hourglass and its two sections….just like the northern and southern hemispheres of the earth…or the two parts of the yin/yang.

Saturn and time are linked……..yes it’s……ahem….”time” to talk about the “Old One”….”The Ancient of Days”,”Old father time,””Chronos.”

He’s the one with the long white beard……..Who gives us our new “Messiah” or “Son of Man.” just as Santa gives gifts at Christmas. (Saturnalia)

The new sun for the new year starts at Christmas….as the old sun dies at the winter solstice.

Daniel 7:13,14

“In my vision at night I looked, and there before me was one like a son of man, coming with the clouds of heaven. He approached the Ancient of Days (Saturn) and was led into his presence.

He was given authority, glory and sovereign power; all nations and peoples of every language worshiped him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion that will not pass away, and his kingdom is one that will never be destroyed.”

But before we do talk about Saturn let’s look again at the bible talking about the sheep and goats.

Matthew 25:31-46

The Sheep and the Goats

31 “When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his glorious throne. 32 All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. 33 He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left.

34 “Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. 35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’

37 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’

40 “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’

41 “Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. 42 For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, 43 I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me.’

44 “They also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?’

45 “He will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.’

46 “Then they (GOATS) will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous (SHEEP) to eternal life.”

Look again at my woeful attempt at drawing below to see that the bible is talking about the zodiac.

001

Now notice that the bottom left corner of the zodiac is winter/3 months of darkness.

And winter is ruled by Saturn/Satan…the horned one…the goat…Capricornus!

In the book of Daniel chapter eight it tells us about a ram fighting a goat also.

This is allegory of the fight between light and darkness.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daniel_8

However let us concentrate on the old goat this time.

In some places he was known as CERNUNNOS….or HERNE/CERN.

Gundestrup_Cernunnos
NOTICE THE HORNS.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cernunnos#Possible_reflexes_in_Insular_Celtic

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Horned_God#Names_of_the_Horned_God

http://www.kidzsearch.com/wiki/Cernunnos

In Egypt he was known as SET OR SETH.

6cf443986db769a8c1d14a6827932c08
AGAIN NOTICE THE EARS MAKE STYLIZED HORNS. He is the God of chaos/disruption just as the biblical  Satan is. Set or Seth is the Egyptian Satan…..that is why the sun goes into darkness at sunSET,also connected with time…..you do have to “set” your clock or watch.

 

Set is a horned god…..

http://www.wepwawet.org/wiki/index.php?title=Set

Satan also has horns……..because they are all depicting the same thing….namely attributes of winter ruled by Capricorn the Goat…the horned/earthy/material/solid (liquid water turns to solid ice in winter)/dark/chaotic/cold/deathly/dissolving/destructive part of the natural cycle of things.

Satan/Saturn is the ruler of this material world,the world of matter and density and restriction/binding.

face_of_the_devil_by_anarkyman-d4pw97b
THE DEVIL IS DEPICTED WITH HORNS

 

Pan and Shiva also are horned Gods.

pan
PAN HAS HORNS

 

800px-Shiva_Pashupati
SHIVA HAS HORNS

Isn’t it coincidental that we are looking out of this world into the universe to find life using…SETI?…..SET.

And in to the smallest parts looking for the God Particle….using CERN?

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

CERN has a statue of Shiva outside…..and Shiva is the God of destruction.

b09c1d66544493d0ea2231e40ed48e70

Its not evil…it’s because Saturn/Shiva/Satan is also the force that binds matter together and they are trying to unveil it…….to reveal what nature/Isis is hiding/veiling.

https://www.quora.com/Why-is-there-a-Nataraj-statue-at-CERN

Why did I say above that Saturn is our friend?…isn’t Saturn the bad guy?

If you look through that article above we can see the following statement about the dance of Shiva.

“Secondly, the purpose of his (Shiva) dance is to release the souls of all men from the snare of illusion.”

We live in a world of illusion/maya.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maya_%28illusion%29

An example of the illusion we live under….billions of people think their religion that they were born into is true and will fight AND die for it….yet they are all illusions…there is no true religion out there……we need to look inside….not outside……however at the core of all religions are natural symbols of nature and the zodiac,over which has been placed extravagant rituals and ceremonies which are merely the veil which hides the truth which the vast billions of adherents cannot see behind.

They worship at the outer courts of the temple.

At the lower parts of secret societies they only glimpse the same thing,namely the outer court or “portico” of the temple……Albert Pike said this about the lower order Freemasons.

fbz_6a6caa5e1b4f6d2509954f576dd465ab
Notice he says the initiate is misled by false interpretations…………yes!…but note this….he is not misled by others…..they are his own false interpretations that lead him awry.If the people who follow blind leaders are content with their course….when they fall into the pit they have no one to blame but themselves.

Satan….or the corrosive/destructive/chaotic/demonic part of man himself will be the tool to bring all illusions to an end.

In the book of revelation it is a destructive Jesus….(Satan/Saturn) that brings the illusion to an end,it is Saturn that puts his sickle in and reaps. (Saturn is the God with the sickle.)

Shiva ends the illusion and dances to release the souls of men through the narrow gate.

The Narrow Gate
23And someone said to Him, “Lord, are there just a few who are being saved?” And He said to them, 24“Strive to enter through the narrow door; for many, I tell you, will seek to enter and will not be able. 25“Once the head of the house gets up and shuts the door, and you begin to stand outside and knock on the door, saying, ‘Lord, open up to us!’ then He will answer and say to you, ‘I do not know where you are from.’

The ancients said we come into this realm through the moon and exit through Saturn….Saturn is the gatekeeper who holds the keys to escaping this material realm.

We come in through the womb,and out through the tomb.

http://www.mermaid-uk.net/Esotericsaturn.htm

Saturn is the hidden one…Saturn or “Old Father Time” is the God who has a scythe or sickle…….and Saturn is connected with the harvest…..see the eternal virgin blog for more.

cdc2193d2ce44ef5067c0e6097e423ee
Saturn has a sickle or scythe
father_time3
Old father time has a sickle…..and notice what time he is pointing to…….MIDNIGHT.(Capricorn starts at the winter solstice…the midnight of the year…it is the darkest point of the year) The earth needs to go through the darkest time to bring about the new age….it will be a struggle…..just as it is a struggle for a newborn turtle to race down the beach through waiting predators to get to safety,just as Jesus was born in the midst of his enemies…and Herod/Herrut was involved in the slaughtering of the innocents,Jesus had to flee to Egypt for safety……the woman in Revelation has to flee to the wilderness to save her child (Revelation 12:13,14)  13/And when the dragon saw that he was thrown down to the earth, he persecuted the woman who gave birth to the male child. 14/But the two wings of the great eagle were given to the woman, so that she could fly into the wilderness to her place, where she was nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent.”

Saturn can also be known as Satan,Set,Sut,Seth,Suty…(Sooty)…and he is also Santa!

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Set_%28deity%29

Where do you find soot,is it not in chimneys?

(And does Santa not come down the chimney?)

Saturn is linked with soot and carbon.

We will see a lot of the customs and rituals surrounding Christmas are connected to Saturn.

Christmas is telling us about the end of a cycle….the old year ended at the winter solstice (December 22nd) and 3 days later (Jesus/Sun 3 days in his tomb) (December 25th) the new year is born as the sun starts its climb from the darkest days up to its throne at the tropic of cancer (June 21st).

Lets look at another link between Saturn and Carbon.

600px-PIA18274-Saturn-NorthPolarHexagon-Cassini-20140402
Note yet again Saturn has a hexagon at its north pole……(Santa comes from the north pole…does he not?)

One of the forms of carbon is graphite……and is it a coincidence that it has a hexagonal structure?

In the bible the 666 is a “man’s number”,man is the highest of carbon lifeforms.

carb2
Saturn is connected with 6’s…as is Satan (666). In alchemy Saturn’s metal is lead,and isn’t graphite in your pencil called “lead.” (Saturn puts the lead in your pencil!….he he)

 

Saturn rules the dark part of year…the 6 months of darkness starting from September 22nd till March 21st.

And Saturn IS connected with time and space….he is the “Time Lord” remember!

Santa has a long beard because he is Father time/Satan/Saturn.

He is old father time….he is Chronos who is connected with chronology,time,clocks etc.

If the creator part of “God” is the Alpha….Saturn is the Omega…the destroying part of “God”….(Omega means the mega or big “O”….”O”mega as opposed to Omicron…which is the micro “O”….”O”micron.

Remember it’s all about ones and zeros!

Women have circles (zeros)….and men have straight lines (ones/erect penis),which when inserted into the woman’s circle (vagina)…..can bring about new life.

6602665-red-and-blue-symbols-of-mars-and-venus-on-white-background-with-light-shadows

The creator,life giving part of this force is the Alpha….and the destructive part of the same force is the omega.

There are connections between time and omega…Chronos/Saturn/Satan is the omega.

Lets talk again about the symbols and terms that describe Saturn.

The colour that is connected with Saturn is…..Black!

The metal that is connected to Saturn is…..Lead!…as was stated above

revelation-part-one-b-56-638
The “lead” that is turned into gold in the case of carbon would be graphite/coal being turned into diamond…….man into superman…….and isn’t just another coincidence that superman has a diamond on his chest?….probably….he he….but note this….diamond is only formed through great pressure.

Lead is also a heavy metal is it not?

And isn’t “heavy metal” music connected with the colour black and Satan/Saturn?

Yes…..type heavy metal music into images and you get this…..

https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=%22heavy+metal%22+music&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwimk7n0yoPKAhVLPRQKHdwVCYgQ_AUICCgC&biw=1536&bih=732

All “Satanic” imagery…..due to the influence of Saturn/Satan/lead/black/chaos

Just as the moon affects tides on this earth….Saturn affects our psyche.

Saturn is a “force” or “concept” that is connected to law,funerals and death,heavy metal music/solemnity and revelry/end of a cycle/harvesting/killing/eats his own children….yet he also gives gifts to his good children…i.e Saint Nicholas Christmas.

But Saturn in the form of Krampus….becomes “Bad Santa” and punishes the wrongdoing children.

In fact lets look at an image of Krampus…….it would be just coincidence if he had horns and stuff connected with Saturn/Pan/Satan/Set…would it not?

2C1F99CE00000578-3228338-image-m-82_1441833286363

Just as Aleister Crowley said….all symbols have both a “good” and “bad” side….Saturn both punishes those who don’t learn lessons…….and rewards those who do learn their lesson.

Jesus comes at midnight also….like a thief…gives good gifts to the righteous……and punishes the wrongdoers,because he is also Satan…..its just in our world of Tommy/duality that we see things as good and evil…….when it is all illusion and perception while at the same time being so real to us.

 

001
Crowley says every symbol or figure has a dual nature

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Krampus#Krampusnacht

If you look at the above link…….is it another coincidence (lots aren’t there!) that Krampus brings a lump of coal (carbon/Saturn) for the bad kids?

KrampusScan
notice what seems to be an omega symbol on the bottle?

Remember in a previous blog we spoke about the Sefer Yetzirah and the cube of space.

Saturn signified by the  Hebrew letter “Tau”….(see tau-saturn link in previous blogs) holds together time and space.

He holds together the 6 sided cube…(number 6 again)…and yet he is the hidden seventh inside the cube…….I will talk more in a later blog about being at sixes and sevens and the connection to turning lead into gold.However if you have been following the blogs and grasping the concepts within…..you will already be making connections.

Cube of Space2
RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE CUBE OF SPACE IS A SYMBOL OF SATURN…WHY?….BECAUSE SATURN HOLDS THIS THREE DIMENSIONAL WORLD TOGETHER.
SaturnSymbolMeaning
SATURN’S SYMBOL. You could try finding out for yourself why Saturn has such a symbol,and what it represents.

Everything in this realm of duality has it’s season….a beginning and an end….a sowing and a harvesting.

Right now we are living at mankind’s winter solstice as we approach the end of the age of Pisces before transforming into the new age of Aquarius!

The changing from the old sun/age/system who dies at the winter solstice and the new sun/age/system which will be born from the darkness and chaos.

“The fruit I bring forth is the Sun” said Isis.

https://books.google.co.uk/books?id=sMsMAwAAQBAJ&pg=PA372&lpg=PA372&dq=%22The+fruit+which+I+have+brought+forth+is+the+Sun%22&source=bl&ots=L3qvdnSfGx&sig=jhpkOZF00sH4oRjHlE85S4phhBE&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwicz6rl1JXKAhUBlxQKHbpkAiwQ6AEILjAE#v=onepage&q=%22The%20fruit%20which%20I%20have%20brought%20forth%20is%20the%20Sun%22&f=false

………and isn’t Isis in the news an awful lot lately.

Isis is the female companion of Saturn (see the eternal virgin blog)…colour black…connected with death and chaos….the female is deadlier than the male!

The motto of freemasonry is “Ordo Ab Chao” “Order out of chaos

Now “Order out of chaos” is stating the same thing as Isis when she proclaims “The fruit I bring forth is the sun!”

Or as an earlier blog says “Darkness/chaos gives birth to the light/order”

Saturn/Satan is also connected with time as said above.

Lets work out the “TomRiddle” now.

If you read or watched the Harry Potter series you will know that Tom Riddle becomes Lord Voldemort……the “baddie” in the series of books and films.

He plays the Satanic/Saturn Character whereas Harry Potter assumes the Christ/Sun figure.

The name “Tom” or “Thomas” means “twin” and as we will see it is connected with Saturn…and time!

http://www.behindthename.com/name/thomas

Why “twin?”

Yet again it goes back to the sine wave from earlier blogs….the hourglass in the first picture at the top,and the yin/yang….in fact everything is contained in the sine wave below.

rsz_1zodiac_sine_wave

As the sun moves from spring/summer (expansion) to autumn/winter (contraction) it forms a pulse….a beat…….a rhythm.

An in….and an out!

A tick…and a tock!

Well these twins/pulses/beats are Thomas/Tammuz (Tammuz is Thomas)…Let’s see why.

Let’s start off with Tammuz the month and its celebration

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tammuz_%28Babylonian_calendar%29#History

Notice in the above link that Tammuz is connected with the SUMMER solstice……so we have a Thomas at one of the solstices……..the tropic of cancer at midsummer….the longest day,the highest part of the suns journey in the year.

Now what are the chances that “Saint Thomas Day” is at the WINTER solstice…and yet there it is.

http://www.enidporterproject.org.uk/content/cambridgeshire-traditions/annual-events/st-thomass-say-december-21st/st-thomass-day-december-21st

https://www.catholicculture.org/culture/liturgicalyear/activities/view.cfm?id=972

Can you see what they are signifying?

The two tropics….Cancer and Capricorn….and the sun switching back and forth between the two like a beat.

The heartbeat of the year….the tick tock of “Time/Timmy”

Whether they are Tim/Tom/Tam/Tem/Tum/Dum…they all signify the pulse or beat…in and out.(The twins!)

That is why we have “Tom-Toms”….they give us the beat….Dum Dum!

(“Dumuzi” is another name for Tammuz)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tammuz_%28deity%29

We also have TAMbourines….that give us the beat

And TIMpani…..

Also what about TEMpo?

They give us the beat of music …and the two Tams/Toms give us the beat or pulse of the year….the summer solstice and the winter solstice…tick and tock.

They are the Tommyknockers….he he.

They are forever switching back and forth just like the sand in the sand timer in the first picture of this blog…tick tock….or in Thomas case in the bible….”doubting”…..for he was in two minds.

As for Timothy in the bible….did he not receive two letters from the Apostle Paul?

Along with the two solstices being connected to Thomas…they are also connected with John.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/St._John’s_Day,_Masonic_feast

And they are also connected to sex with the back and forth beat….rock and roll!

If your eyes move from the winter solstice to the summer solstice and back….your head moves up and down…as if you are nodding or saying yes…and makes a number one shape…..(the obelisk/erect penis makes a one shape…and moves up and down) and is it yet another coincidence that your penis can also be called your “JOHN THOMAS”

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

http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=John+Thomas

(If you move your eyes between the two equinoxes (horizontally) you are shaking your head or saying no (feminine/negative)…the path of the solstices form the male and equinoxes the female.)

Saturn/Satan is connected with hell and Tommy (time).

Because it is Old Father Time that gives us the relentless beat of the twins of time.

https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/hell_and_tommy

Saturn is Satan….the time lord and ruler of space……..Doctor Who is Saturn/Satan…the time lord……what does Tardis mean again,isn’t it connected with time…..and space…and isn’t the Tardis a box?

Saturn is connected with 6’s…..as is man who is the highest form of carbon species,and carbon just happens to have 6 protons,6 electrons and 6 neutrons.

CarbonAtom
666 is MANS number!

Saturn is also connected with 60…or three score…….each hour contains 60 minutes…each minute contains 60 seconds.

60-minutes-logo-575x276

Remember I had an earlier blog called the day the year and the great year….well the day corresponds to the six,the year to the sixty….and the great year to the 600….which gives six hundred three score and six…..666…..the number of the beast which is a mans number….and again…we have 666.

Saturn is the 6th planet from the sun and one of its moons is…just another coincidence….Pan!…..another connection to Satan/earthiness/materiality.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pan_%28moon%29

Whether Satan/Set/Saturn/Pan…….we are talking about the same force….or concept and its different aspects….and look at the groups below who recognize Satan/Saturn/Set.

Church of Satan

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

Temple of Set

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

Fraternitus Saturni

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

Remember Saturn is also connected with death…..and that is why when you’re gone….you will be SIX feet under….in a BOX!

Saturn will knock you for six!

Anyways…….thanks for reading peoples of the planet!

Till next …ahem…..TIME!

Here is some further reading for you that you might find interesting.

http://londonist.com/2015/07/who-was-old-father-thames

Did you notice in the article above…they just cannot work out who Old Father Thames is?

Do you think you may have solved that “Thames/Tammuz/Tom Riddle?”

The “Old Man River”….that just keeps rolling along (the river of time.)

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.

The Man Who Would Be King.

the-man-who-would-be-king-crown

This blog will be talking about an ancient,and widespread ritual which was observed in many lands throughout history and whose theme still pervades literature and cinema up to this day,and may be behind the story of the killing of Jesus, “King of the Jews.”

However,before the blog gets underway,I said in an earlier blog that there was a relationship between the “number 26” and “Jehovah” in occult literature and teachings.

In what way?….well in a few ways,so let’s have a look at some.

We’ll start off by using the “Hebrew letters” and “Gematria”

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

(Gematria is linked with the word “Geometry”)

Then we’ll be using the tree of life in Kabbalah.

After that using the Zodiac wheel itself.

Then “English” Gematria.

And lastly from the cube of space in the Sefer Yetzirah.

Let’s start with the Hebrew letters that make up the Tetragrammaton!

Yod,Heh,Vav,Heh…..The Four Letters…..The name of “God.”

Notice below that each of the Hebrew letters has a numerical value.

the_hebrew_letters_and_their_numeric_values

You will notice that the letter “Yod” is the tenth letter with a value of 10

Then the letter “Heh” has the value of 5

The letter “Vav” has a value of 6

And the final “Heh” has a value of 5

10+5+6+5=26!

Next let’s look at the “tree of life” in Kabbalah.

Tree_of_Life_Diagram_with_namesNow notice there are three pillars in the tree of life above,the right pillar (male) called the pillar of mercy.

The left pillar (female) called the pillar of severity.

And the middle pillar,called the pillar of balance or equilibrium.

(see more about the middle pillar in previous blogs)

Each of the pillars represents among many things the hemispheres of the brain (right/left) and the balance/middle pillar (corpus callosum )

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

It can also mean the right hand side of the body,left hand side of the body,and the spine (middle pillar).

CassaroR1-8

In an atom you have a proton(male),electron(female) and neutron (middle pillar/androgynous/balance/equilibrium)

Another representation of the three pillars are the two tropics,Tropic of Cancer,Tropic of Capricorn and the middle pillar represents the Equator.

Also the three pillars of freemasonry.

Pillars2

 

Now notice each of the sephiroth (spheres) on the kabbalah tree of life has a number from 1 to 10.

God represents the balance of the two forces (male and female) which is represented by the middle pillar.

Now with that said,count up the numbers on the spheres of the middle pillar.

Kether,Tiphareth,Yesod and Malkuth.

1+6+9+10 and it also adds up to the number 26!

Now we go back to the vision of the four living creatures of the Zodiac as seen by both Ezekiel and John the Revelator.

The four living creatures represent the four fixed signs of the zodiac,(and YHVH….respectively Fire,Water,Air,Earth)Yod,Heh,Vav,Heh.

(A quick recap of the four fixed signs…..The Lion represents Leo (Fire),The Eagle represents Scorpio (Water),The Man represents Aquarius (Air) and The Bull represents Taurus (Earth))

The fixed signs are the middle signs of each season and equate to the middle pillar of the tree of life.What I mean by that is that Leo is the middle of summer,Taurus middle of spring,Aquarius the middle of winter,and Scorpio middle of autumn.

Now that said,of the twelve houses of the Zodiac…

See the chart below,locate the four living creatures,and note what number of “house” they rule.

The second house is ruled by Taurus (one of the living creatures)

The fifth house is ruled by Leo

The eighth house is ruled by Scorpio

and the eleventh house is ruled by Aquarius.

These are the four living creatures!

Now add up the four “house numbers”

2+5+8+11 and you get the number 26 yet again!

03-infographic-houses-signs-rulers

Then there is the word “God” in “English Gematria” (English has 26 letters unlike Hebrew which has 22)

The letter “G” is the 7th letter of the alphabet.

The letter”O” is the 15th letter of the alphabet.

And the letter “D” is the 4th letter of the alphabet.

7+15+4=26

And finally what about the cube of space from the Sepher Yetzirah,featured in an earlier blog.

Here it is again below.

cubic
Notice also the 22 Hebrew letters in their relation to the cube of space.

Now the cube has 6 sides,8 points and 12 lines…and wouldn’t you know

6+8+12=26.

And going slightly off topic but again it might be relevant,notice what the Sepher Yetzirah says about the 22 letters of the Hebrew alphabet equating to the 10 fingers of the hand,and in between we have our tongue where we get the word “lingual” ( the connection to “lingam”)

And between our 10 toes we have the penis (lingam)

and 10+1+10+1=22 (the 22 creative letters of the Hebrew alphabet)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sefer_Yetzirah#Structure

Also notice the letter yod is the tenth letter (number 10) which contains a 1 and 0…or Adam and Eve (Odd and Even),and as an earlier blog said..it’s all about ones and zeros folks!

Yod is the creative letter of Hebrew,as Lon Milo Duquette says,blow on the letter “Yod” and it will reveal all the other letters.(“Yod” looks like a candle flame!)

http://www.hebrew4christians.com/Grammar/Unit_One/Aleph-Bet/Yod/yod.html

yud

Small yet powerful,just like “Yoda” in Star Wars!

Now to the blog about the divine victim.

John 11:49-51

But one of them, Caiaphas, who was high priest that year, said to them, “You know nothing at all. 50Nor do you understand that it is better for you that one man should die for the people, not that the whole nation should perish.” 51He did not say this of his own accord, but being high priest that year he prophesied that Jesus would die for the nation.

According to Margaret Alice Murray in her book “The God of the witches”:-

In the primitive Western cults of Europe,the leader was a “Sacred King”,sharing both kingly and priestly duties,and there is strong evidence that the King or “God” of the cult would sacrifice his life for the group in the event that the crops failed or some other tragedy fell upon the group.He would also be killed when he started showing any signs of weakness,such as greying hair,loss of teeth,waning sex drive,illness.

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

The “God” died by one of three methods….Fire,Shedding of blood (so that the blood should fall on the ground) and by Asphyxiation.

dying kingdying king 2

You can see by the wikipedia page below this seems to have been a widespread belief and practice,even outside Europe.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dying-and-rising_god

The “one” took on the sins of the nation.

They became the scapegoat for the Nation.

The bible talks about scapegoats and the ritual involved.

Leviticus 16:8-10

“Aaron shall cast lots for the two goats, one lot for the LORD and the other lot for the scapegoat. “Then Aaron shall offer the goat on which the lot for the LORD fell, and make it a sin offering. “But the goat on which the lot for the scapegoat fell shall be presented alive before the LORD, to make atonement upon it, to send it into the wilderness as the scapegoat.”

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

Remnants of this ritual still persist to this day in Ireland at the “Puck Fair”

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

NWS_20140625_New_004_32069461_I1
King Puck with his crown.

Notice the book above says it could be the King himself,it could be an animal,or a human substitute for the King,which would give the King an extended reign.

In the original 1973 film “The Wicker Man” (Also a play on words “Wicca” Man) we are shown this “divine victim” ritual or practice,in that when there is a poor harvest one of the young virgin girls of the island is to be sacrificed,although there is a plot twist in the film!

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Wicker_Man_%281973_film%29#Plot

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

The King could be showing signs of losing his power and be killed by one of the younger men in the group who then takes his place as the next “Divine King” or “Rex Nemorensis” “King of the Wood” or “Grove”

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

This motif is the subject of the film “Apocalypse Now” where at the end of the film,the “King” (Colonel Kurtz) is killed by the U.S army captain Benjamin Willard and the villagers all bow down to Willard. (the new Rex Nemorensis)

images

Another clue as to this killing of the king ritual being the theme of the movie is Colonel Kurtz’s reading material you see lying around.

Namely “The Golden Bough” and “From Ritual to Romance” and these two books deal with the sacrifice of the King.

242hhkh

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Golden_Bough#Subject_matter

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

Read the trivia in the above wiki page about the son killing the father/king.

(And the song “The End” by the doors has lyrics pertaining to the Oedipus Complex in the movie Apocalypse Now)

Another linked theme is the land being a barren wasteland until the old impotent King dies and the new virile King brings in a new time of prosperity.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wasteland_%28mythology%29

You will also notice in the wikipedia page “Golden Bough subject matter”about Kings and Priests having to fulfill their very serious vows.

These vows included death after reigning a period of time,or death if crops failed.

You will notice this theme most clearly in the film “Eye of the Devil” again starring David Niven,Deborah Kerr and Sharon Tate.

David Niven is called back to his vineyard after the crop fails at his vineyard and a blood sacrifice (Niven) is required to bring back the vineyard to it’s former glory.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eye_of_the_Devil#Plot

Notice Sharon Tate plays a girl named “Odile” (Odile is the black swan in Swan Lake)

Also did you know that Swan Lake may have been based on Ludwig II,as Tchaikovsky took great interest in the life story of Ludwig.

And also have a read at the mysterious events surrounding Ludwig’s death and his connection to swans…he was called the “Swan King” and lived in a castle at “Schwansee” (Swan Lake).

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ludwig_II_of_Bavaria#Mysterious_death

In his book “The Golden Bough” James Frazer also links this dying God,who dies to take away the barren wasteland and restore the land to it’s former glory as applying to the figures of Osiris,Tammuz,Attis,Adonis,Dionysus and Jesus.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dying-and-rising_god

The death and departure of the Gods where a God (or pantheon of Gods) dies,is killed or destroyed.

Just as the bible says there is a time to live and a time to die…everything has it’s tidal rhythm.

And just as summer has to give way to the dark months,everything must come to it’s end.

In the Book of Revelation it is telling us about a great cycle coming to an end,it is called an “Age” and lasts approximately two thousand years.

https://biblodiac.wordpress.com/2014/07/01/the-day-year-and-great-year/

That is why Revelation shows us horsemen with scales (Libra,first month of autumn,red horsemen with swords,Scorpio and white horse with bowman,Sagittarius)

8293066881_0c9dc28f70_o
Death,Chaos and Darkness are connected to the dark part of the cycle….namely Autumn and Winter…with the Lamb of Aries in the distance…The lamb of Aries is when the Sun returns to fructify the earth once more as daylight becomes longer than the nighttime and overcomes the darkness.

At some point the light will disappear and the dark forces will reign,however like summer gives way to the dark days,these dark days will have to give way to the light yet again…it is a cycle and the bible gives us the assurance that the light will return by telling us the lamb will be on the heavenly mount again…the lamb is Aries,the month of the spring equinox,the return of the lamb of God who takes away the darkness/sin (“sin” in Spanish means without) of the earth,the barren wasteland that winter leaves behind and brings back growth/warmth/fecundity and light.

We are at the end of this light part of the cycle right now and darkness will have it’s day,but just like the symbol of the owl in the previous blog,the darkness will bring us more wisdom and teach humanity’s survivors a harsh (and ultimately good) lesson and will eventually usher in a whole new way of thinking and behaving.

We can see the old wineskins leaking right now,people are leaving religion in droves,it is outdated and cannot hold the different influences of this new “age/aeon.”

James Frazer says in the Golden Bough that there is a three phase action that goes on…

First….Magic which gives way to Religion which in turn gives way to Science and we see that happening right now.

The Old Gods of this age are about to give way to the new.

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

And by “Gods” I mean our inner psyches/modes of thought that are being projected out from us all.

If you break the word “mocking” down you get “mock king” and again this brings us back to the substitute stand in for the death of the King.

mock king 001

With this in mind pay attention to John 11:50 mentioned in the book above.

“Caiaphas, who was high priest that year, said to them, “You know nothing at all. 50Nor do you understand that it is better for you that one man should die for the people, not that the whole nation should perish.””

Caiaphas (being high priest) would have understood this ritual of the “mock king”, “divine victim” and “scapegoat” “sacrificial lamb” very well.

And didn’t they mock Jesus?

Luke 22:63

“Now the men who were holding Jesus in custody were mocking Him and beating Him”

Matthew 27:28

“They stripped Him and put a scarlet robe on Him. And after twisting together a crown of thorns, they put it on His head, and a reed in His right hand; and they knelt down before Him and mocked Him, saying, “Hail, King of the Jews!”

stdas0794

Is this what the bible is telling us about,this sacrificing a Divine Victim to bring about prosperity to the barren wasteland,this well known ritual that has echoed all throughout history?

The death of the “Christ” brought about new growth and a new mode of thought.

Margaret Murray in her book “The God of the Witches” gives four examples of historical characters she claims may have been involved in this ancient ritual.

These four are:-

Thomas Becket (who she says was a stand in for Henry the 2nd)

Rufus (William 2nd,son of William the Conqueror).

Joan of Arc.

Gilles de Rais.

Here are some interesting things she says about the Thomas Becket killing.

divine victim becket 001

divine victim two 001
Just as Jesus garments was shared between four soldiers,Becket was killed by four soldiers. Notice also the opposites,male and female ritual killings. Jesus dies and the veil was rent…(the veil is the female) Becket and the connection to the broken sword….(the sword is representative of the male)

In the film “Eyes wide shut” Tom Cruise’s character is in deep trouble after seeing too much at a ritual until a woman stands in for him,becomes his scapegoat and is found dead soon after.

Screenshot_062
Dr. Harford faces his savior, who will give her life for his safety.

And I’m sure you will find lots of interesting things in the wikipedia page below about the Fisher King and the links to this theme also.

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

In Ancient Babylon,the killing of the King was acted out at “Zagmuk” (beginning of the year)

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

And the festival of “Sacaea”

http://encyclopedia2.thefreedictionary.com/Sacaea

All these festivals are connected to the sun and the zodiac.

Every year at the winter solstice,the “old” Sun (of the previous year) dies to give way to the “newborn” sun who starts his cycle of the next year.

“The King is dead (old sun),long live the king (new sun)!”

The old sun is at it’s weakest state at the winter solstice and is replaced by the new invigorated sun which starts his cycle.

This is the one common bond between all of the myths of the dying and resurrecting Gods such as Attis,Dionysius,Bacchus….Jesus!

The Jewish festival of “Purim” has a “substitute” killed in place of the intended victim(s).

Haman tried to persuade Ahasuerus the King to order the killing of Mordecai and all the Jews in Persia.However the plot is foiled by Queen Esther resulting in Haman and his sons being killed in place of the intended ones.

As a side note,in astrology the two benefics are Jupiter and Venus.

http://theastrologydictionary.com/b/benefic/

Marduk is associated with Jupiter and Esther with Venus/Astarte….Ishtar.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Purim#Modern_scholarly_view

The title of the “Golden Bough” comes from the Aeneid when Aeneas and the Cumaean Sibyl present the plucked Golden Bough to the gatekeeper of Hades in order to gain admission.

(Interestingly the Aeneid is written in 12 parts (zodiac) and is split into two (books 1-6) and (7-12).

The 6 months of light and darkness!

20150416183549!Golden_bough
Turners painting of the Golden Bough

In the book he tells of Lake Nemi (which Turner also painted) near Rome,where there is a sacred grove dedicated to Diana Nemorensis. (Diana of the Wood)

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

Diana is the Goddess of the moon and hunting.

Frazer tells us in this grove there grew a certain tree of which no branch may be broken.

And there was also a priesthood with strange customs.

The only one who could break off a branch would be a runaway slave who was then entitled to fight the reigning priest in battle,and if he slew him reigned in his stead and became the new “King of the Wood.”

“Rex Nemorensis”

Just as Martin Sheens character became in the film “Apocalypse Now” after slaying Marlon Brando’s character as stated above.

Frazer said the ancients called this branch “the golden bough” talked about in the “Aeneid” (a poem written by Virgil),in which Aeneas with the help of Deiphobe (the Cumaean Sibyl) plucked a golden bough to give to Proserpina in order to gain access to the underworld for Aeneas to see his father.

So the Golden Bough was linked to death and the underworld.

This strange rule of succession by the sword was,according to Frazer still observed at the time of Caligula who had a priest of Nemi killed who he deemed to have reigned too long,also a Greek traveller talked about this ritual happening in the time of the Antonines.

Frazer also tells of various tribes and peoples who killed their king when the king’s strength failed,and it is very widespread throughout the earth.

The kings of fire and water in Cambodia…….

https://books.google.co.uk/books?id=2_zKFyHlBk0C&pg=PA257&lpg=PA257&dq=kings+of+fire+and+water+cambodia&source=bl&ots=F9aXLI0q1z&sig=-zlonC1McTprKRNu97UKUq28uOI&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0CDoQ6AEwBmoVChMI__rmttKZyAIVQWsUCh07PAMb#v=onepage&q=kings%20of%20fire%20and%20water%20cambodia&f=false

The Chitome of Congo

The Ethiopian kings of Meroe

The Shilluk people

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

And here is an extract from “The Golden Bough” where Frazer talks about the “Matiamvo.”

“The Matiamvo is a great king or emperor in the interior of Angola. One of the inferior kings of the country, by name Challa, gave to a Portuguese expedition the following account of the manner in which the Matiamvo comes by his end. “It has been customary,” he said, “for our Matiamvos to die either in war or by a violent death, and the present Matiamvo must meet this last fate, as, in consequence of his great exactions, he has lived long enough. When we come to this understanding, and decide that he should be killed, we invite him to make war with our enemies, on which occasion we all accompany him and his family to the war, when we lose some of our people. If he escapes unhurt, we return to the war again and fight for three or four days. We then suddenly abandon him and his family to their fate, leaving him in the enemy’s hands. Seeing himself thus deserted, he causes his throne to be erected, and, sitting down, calls his family around him. He then orders his mother to approach; she kneels at his feet; he first cuts off her head, then decapitates his sons in succession, next his wives and relatives, and, last of all, his most beloved wife, called Anacullo. This slaughter being accomplished, the Matiamvo, dressed in all his pomp, awaits his own death, which immediately follows, by an officer sent by the powerful neighbouring chiefs, Caniquinha and Canica. This officer first cuts off his legs and arms at the joints, and lastly he cuts off his head; after which the head of the officer is struck off. All the potentates retire from the encampment, in order not to witness his death. It is my duty to remain and witness his death, and to mark the place where the head and arms have been deposited by the two great chiefs, the enemies of the Matiamvo.

There are many,many more examples in his amazing book.

He also talk about Kings who only reign for a fixed term before being killed and replaced.

judgment of paris
“The judgment of Paris” talking about “The three Goddesses” who give the pomegranate to the upcoming “King” who must kill the reigning King. (the three Goddesses equate with the three spirals talked about in the “sex and religion” blog.

Temporary Kings.

Killing of the Kings son.

Divine substitutes.

There are many other movies containing this theme,like the Lion King,The man who would be King and I’m sure you will know a good few yourself.

Lon Milo Duquette says in one of his interviews that the consciousness of the ancients was to the extent that they thought the sun died every day and rose again the next morning,and it also died every year at the winter solstice.

However we now know that the sun doesn’t die,it just disappears for part of its daily and yearly cycle.

Well Mr. Duquette says our consciousness is now raised to the point where we realize….just as the sun does not “die”,neither do we,he says when we die we are moving to a different part of our cycle which is eternal.

He says we are never “switched off”,we are always “on”.

1st Corinthians 15:26

“For He must reign until He has put all His enemies under His feet. 26The last enemy that will be abolished is death.”

Well I hope this blog sets you on another path of learning yourself,as no vicarious religious institution can save you.

You are both pupil and teacher.

“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.

male-wigs-701273

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

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

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.

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.

Also the four beats in music

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

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!

Let’s Go Round Again! (wheels within wheels part 3)

Hello again fellow peoples of the planet!

In the last two blogs we were introduced to the decans of the zodiac and how they make up some of the stories in the bible.

Each decan takes up 10 degrees of the 360 degree circle…there are 36 decans in the zodiac!

And here is an interesting fact….what number do you get when you add up numbers 1 through 36?

……666

Think also of a roulette wheel ….it has 36 numbers in a circle (and a zero/ain soph)…the decans….and the ball spins around them….the sun…again,it is taken from the zodiac.

 

36_hc

Before we start this blog about the number seven in the scriptures we will first focus on the duo-decans.

Each duo-decan takes up 5 degrees of the zodiac,as each decan takes up 10 degrees…..and there are 72 duo-decans in the 360 degree circle…..and there is that number that cropped up in the earlier blogs…the number 72!

72

Lets see a couple of examples of the 72 in connection with the bible.

When we do….you will notice something strange…..there is a 70/72 situation going on!

What I mean by that is that on one hand we see the 70…but on closer inspection it can also be 72.

Lets take the Septuagint as an example…the seventy!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Septuagint#Name

This seventy refers to the legendary seventy jewish scholars who translated the Hebrew scriptures into Greek.

However…when you start digging a bit deeper the seventy can also become seventy two!

see the wikipedia page below…they aren’t quite sure if there are seventy or seventy two scholars!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Septuagint#Composition

Now one example is nothing…let’s see another example from the bible that shows this strange 70/72 relationship.

And it concerns Jesus sending out the 70 apostles to preach.

Luke 10:1 (King James Bible)

“After these things the Lord appointed other seventy also, and sent them two and two before his face into every city and place, whither he himself would come.”

James_Tissot_Christ_sending_out_the_seventy_disciples_two_by_two_525

So Jesus sends out the seventy…….however according to the NIV bible we have this number.

“After this the Lord appointed seventy-two others and sent them two by two ahead of him to every town and place where he was about to go”

seventy-two

so again we have the 70/72 puzzle.

What about the 70 generations of Noah?….or is it 72 generations?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Generations_of_Noah#Other_interpretations:_Descendants_of_Japheth

Again…..what about the 70 elders in the story of Moses?

Numbers 11:25,26

Then the LORD came down in the cloud and spoke to him; and He took of the Spirit who was upon him and placed Him upon the seventy elders. And when the Spirit rested upon them, they prophesied. But they did not do it again. 26But two men had remained in the camp; the name of one was Eldad and the name of the other Medad. And the Spirit rested upon them (now they were among those who had been registered, but had not gone out to the tent), and they prophesied in the camp.

See…yet again we have this 70/72 split!

If nothing else…it should show us that rather than taking these numbers and stories literally,we should be digging deeper to understand the symbolism beneath the stories.

It isn’t only The bible that has this number 72.

In Islam there is the tradition of the 72 virgins.

http://wikiislam.net/wiki/72_Virgins

(although some sources say there are 70 virgins…again that 70/72 thing going on 🙂

http://www.webcitation.org/query?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.islam.tc%2Fcgi-bin%2Faskimam%2Fask.pl%3Fq%3D7007%26act%3Dview&date=2012-01-09

Confucious had 72 disciples.

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

In the Egyptian story of Osiris….he is tricked to lie in a lead coffin by his brother Set,and Set’s 72 accomplices.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Osiris#Mythology

The connection between them all is the zodiac!

In the story of Jesus the 12 are sitting at a table eating with Jesus.

In the story of Osiris the 72 duo-decans are at a banquet eating with Osiris.

Remember when we are discussing the 12 or 72 we are talking about the table of the zodiac and the signs and duo-decans…the 12 and 72 are allegorically sitting round a table (zodiac) watching the story and journey of the sun as it travels through the 12 signs and 72 duo-decans.

They are watching the story of the sun unfold!

In the story of Osiris…..Set betrays Osiris and sends him to his doom.

In the story of Jesus…Judas is the betrayer…..the scorpion/betrayer/backbiter who kisses Jesus/the sun and betrays him.

The two of those characters represent the sign of Scorpio…the betrayer….the backbiter.

The scorpion is the sign of Scorpio that back stabs the sun with the sting in his tail and sends him down to his death in winter (at the winter solstice).

We can see this part of the yearly cycle being played out in all of those stories and myths

In an earlier blog (written in the stars) we saw that God (EL) could be represented as a bull.

This is also the sign of Taurus (the fixed sign of spring)…slap bang in the middle of spring/light!

And the sign Scorpio is straight across the zodiac table from Taurus and it is the fixed sign of autumn.

zodiac-circle-tattoo-sample
Do you see Taurus and Scorpio are opposite each other in the table.Taurus is the middle of Spring/light…and Scorpio is the middle of Autumn/darkness…they are two polarities!

When the sun/Jesus/Osiris/bull gets betrayed by the scorpion/Saturn/Set it is talking about the darkness overcoming the light in the year.

John 12:35

“Jesus replied, “My light will shine for you just a little longer. Walk in the light while you can, so the darkness will not overtake you. Those who walk in the darkness cannot see where they are going.”

309b94ef9a18eea5a49bd9c1b4a5f1dc

Again it’s the two foes of light and darkness in the year.

Mayday or Beltane is in the sign of Taurus……where people dance round maypoles celebrating the return of the light and growth.

Halloween is in the sign of Scorpio…where others celebrate the return of darkness and the demise of the sun.

You also see this in the Tauroctony.

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

1280px-BritMusMithrasDog
AT THE FRONT OF THE BULL WE HAVE THE DOG AND SERPENT (FORCES OF DARKNESS) ATTACKING THE BULL/JESUS/LIGHT
1280px-BritMusMithrasScorpion
AND BEHIND WE HAVE THE SCORPION ATTACKING THE BULL’S TESTICLES (LIFE GIVING FORCES OF LIGHT) SCORPIO (DARKNESS)….TAURUS (LIGHT)….ALLEGORICALLY THIS IS WHAT JUDAS DOES TO JESUS IN THE GARDEN….HE GIVES HIM THE KISS OF DEATH…THE SCORPIONS KISS…HE HANDS THE SUN OVER TO THE DARK FORCES TO EVENTUALLY BE KILLED

You will also see the 72 in the Shemhamphorasch.

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

Kircher-Diagram_of_the_names_of_God
NOTICE THE SEVENTY TWO NAMES IN A CIRCLE

These are the seventy two names of God…the duo-decans….they are forces outside and inside of us….they are forces of nature(outside) and our consciousness/psyche(inside) personified.

For example…on the earth..there are two poles….north and south…..and people can also be bi-polar….meaning …not balanced and moving from one extreme to the other in an erratic manner….so there are polarities both inside and outside of us…..man is the measure of the universe……we are the equator/balance of the inner and outer forces.

And just like electricity,they can be a force for good…or bad depending on how it is used.

Those 72 forces of nature can be used for good……..or bad motives depending on the one who understands how to manoeuvre them.

We can bring light to other people…or darkness by our words and actions.

The 72 demons in the Goetia,can be used for both means and ends.

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

1389369833108

The seventy two forces are used for “evil” purposes in the story of Osiris when they conspire along with Set to do away with Osiris…The forces of darkness overcome the forces of light.

However in the story of Jesus sending out the 72 the opposite happens…the forces of light triumph this time…look at the report of the 72 when they return.

Luke 10:17-20

17 The seventy-two returned with joy and said, “Lord, even the demons submit to us in your name.”

18 He replied, “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. 19 I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you. 20 However, do not rejoice that the spirits submit to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven.”

Luke-10_17

Whereas in the tauroctony images above…the scorpion and serpent overcome the bull/forces of light.

In the story of the seventy two being sent out….those 72 disciples/powers of light…overcome the scorpion and serpent which are the forces of darkness!

It is all allegory!

In the 360 degree circle of the zodiac concerning the great year…see this blog below for more detail

https://biblodiac.wordpress.com/2014/07/01/the-day-year-and-great-year/

To pass through just one degree of the great year takes seventy two years.

The pentagram which is used by occult orders is also connected to the 72.

Now we will have another look at the magnificent seven…the seven planets of the ancients.

These seven planets are everywhere in religious literature.

Again …just like we did with the 70/72 divide above….with this number we are going to see another weird divide…this time a 5/7 divide.

What do I mean?

Well let’s take a look at the seven planets themselves.

Sun,Moon,Mars,Mercury,Jupiter,Venus and Saturn.

Although they are called the seven planets,two of them aren’t actually planets…the sun and the moon…….they are the luminaries.

So in actuality there are only five planets…and two luminaries…..see the 5/7 divide happening?

Lets take it a bit further…of the seven planets or gods…five are male…and two female.

The Moon and Venus are female goddesses.

Mars,Mercury,Jupiter,the Sun and Saturn are all male gods in myth…again the 5/7 divide.

Further…what about the 7 days of the week?

Are two of them different from the other five?….yes!

Saturday and Sunday make up the weekend…and the other five are weekdays….5/7.

When Jesus fed the multitudes with the seven items of food…we again have  the divide.

He fed them with five loaves and two fishes…..5/7 yet again.

We have five senses..sight,touch,hearing,smell,taste….however according to occult lore there is also a sixth and seventh sense….5/7.

http://www.plotinus.com/sixth_seventh_senses_of_man_copy.htm

In Indian yogic/tantric teachings there are seven chakras in the body…or are there only five?

chakras
ARE THERE FIVE CHAKRAS?
ColouredChakraswithDescriptions
OR SEVEN CHAKRAS?

it is the 5/7 divide again.

What about in music?

we have the notes A,B,C,D,E,F,G

only five of the notes have sharps…A#,C#,D#,F#,G#

There are no B Sharps (it is a “C”)……unless you’re in The Simpsons!

album_The-Be-Sharps--The-Simpsons--Bigger-Then-Jesus

And there is no E sharp either…it is an “F” (E sharp is an F)…..again the 5/7 divide.

In the endocrine system there are seven glands

https://quizlet.com/6831853/the-7-glands-of-the-endocrine-system-flash-cards/

And two of them are different from the other five.

for more info on this…please take time to listen to the audio below

All throughout the bible you will find the number seven cropping up!

The seven days of creation in Genesis.

Pharaoh’s dream in Genesis 41:2 where he saw seven fat cows and seven gaunt cows.

“When out of the river there came up seven cows, sleek and fat, and they grazed among the reeds.”

Samson’s seven braids of hair in Judges 16:13

“Delilah then said to Samson, “All this time you have been making a fool of me and lying to me. Tell me how you can be tied.” He replied, “If you weave the seven braids of my head into the fabric on the loom and tighten it with the pin, I’ll become as weak as any other man.” So while he was sleeping, Delilah took the seven braids of his head, wove them into the fabric”

The seven evil spirits talked about by Jesus at Matthew 12:45

45 Then it goes and takes with it seven other spirits more wicked than itself, and they go in and live there. And the final condition of that person is worse than the first. That is how it will be with this wicked generation.”

The fall of the walls of Jericho story contains lots of sevens

Joshua 6:15,16

15 On the seventh day, they got up at daybreak and marched around the city seven times in the same manner, except that on that day they circled the city seven times. 16 The seventh time around, when the priests sounded the trumpet blast, Joshua commanded the army, “Shout! For the Lord has given you the city!

And we have the seven churches in the book of revelation…..the seven lamps,the seven stars,the seven angels

Also the seven “times” of Nebuchadnezzar.

http://the2520.com/nebuchadnezzars_seven_times.htm

The Elohim are also the seven

http://www.spiritual-encyclopedia.com/elohim.html

Look through the bible and you will see a vast amount of sevens and twelves,all due to the zodiac.

In a previous blog we spoke about the supernal triad in kabbalah……these are kether,chokmah and binah

these three are above the “abyss.”

However below “the abyss”  we have seven sephiroth (spheres).

Chesed,Geburah,Tiphareth,Netzach,Hod,Yesod and Malkuth.

golden dawn

We have the triangle at the top consisting of kether,chokmah and binah which bring about the seven below the “abyss.”

lets see this in a different way.

dispersion-of-white-light

We have the triangle (supernal triad) and the seven that emanate from it…in this case the colours.

However in other planes,they express themselves in other ways,they are concepts and forces that echo throughout nature.

Some called these seven “the elohim”,”the seven spirits of God”,”the seven rayed god.”

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

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

The Chinese have the “seven lucky gods”

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

These seven forces/planets make up the days of the week cycle.

The seven colours are the rainbow bridge or “Antahkarana” which has to be crossed over to return to the oneness (or white light).

http://www.cosmicconsciousnessonline.com/family-of-light-channeling-articles/Antahkarana-Rainbow-Bridge-Light-Oneness-Consciousness.html

The statue of liberty has seven rays.

statue 2
The seven rays represent the seven planets.

In fact the statue of liberty was given to America by French Freemasons who understand these occult teachings.

3733736786_420c030a8a_b

 

The seven planets make up our three dimensional world as was stated in an earlier blog.

three dimensional twins 001
The seven planets or concepts/forces/consciousnesses make up our three dimensional world…those forces are the elohim…the creator gods.

Occult teachings say that these septenaries create also the cycles of evolution where we can “octave” or spiral up a step rather than circling or getting caught in the loop.

Do ray me fa so la ti…and the octave Do!

http://www.theosociety.org/pasadena/ub/v13n01p10_the-septenary-cycle-of-evolution.htm

 

Pythagorus said the number seven represents the law of evolution.

https://books.google.co.uk/books?id=i6MUPGhWZ6oC&pg=PA98&dq=pythagoras+seven+number+of+law&hl=en&sa=X&ei=AE9gVcypF4LfUZT8gOAI&ved=0CCoQ6AEwAA#v=onepage&q=pythagoras%20seven%20number%20of%20law&f=false

So know when you read about the number seven in the bible…it is telling us about these hidden teachings.

DO NOT TAKE IT ALL LITERALLY!

When you come across a number seven,12,4,72,40….you should know that it is hiding something from us….just under the surface…and some of the rabbis say that the more ludicrous the story is on the surface …….the more profound the hidden teachings are underneath.

However once we use the “keys” of understanding…we see the deep truths contained therein.

Moses Maimonides (1135-1205 AD) said this…

“Every time that you find in our books a tale, the reality of which seems impossible, a story that is repugnant to both reason and common sense, then be sure that the tale contains a profound allegory veiling a deeply mysterious truth…and the greater the absurdity of the letter, the deeper the wisdom of spirit.”

The Zohar says this…

“Woe to the man who sees in the Torah, i.e., Law, only simple recitals and ordinary words! Because if in truth it only contained these, we would even today be able to compose a Torah much more worthy of admiration. For if we find only the simple words, we would only have to address ourselves to the legislators of the earth, to those in whom we most frequently meet with the most grandeur. It would be sufficient to imitate them, and make a Torah after their words and example. But it is not so; each word of the Torah contains an elevated meaning and a sublime mystery . . . . The recitals of the Torah are the vestments of the Torah. Woe to him who takes this garment for the Torah itself . . . . The simple take notice only of the garments or recitals of the Torah; they know no other thing, they see not that which is concealed under the vestment. The more instructed men do not pay attention to the vestment, but to the body which it envelops.”

Yes……woe to the man who takes the garment for the torah itself…or disregards the wisdom hidden underneath the garment…the real body of scripture….hidden from the ignorant and profane,who not seeing it…mock and deride it.

Manly Palmer Hall said that each of the seven wonders of the world are dedicated to one of the seven planets.

Now ask yourself this….how can that be possible when the nations in which these seven wonders were built had no great friendships with each other?

The seven wonders are …

1/The Great pyramid of Giza (the only surviving wonder) has the legend of Thoth/hermes/mercury being the builder….MERCURY

2/The Colossus of Rhodes is a statue of Helios….Helios is the……..SUN

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

3/The temple of Artemis or Diana at Ephesus….again Diana or Artemis is a Goddess of the….MOON

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

$T2eC16Z,!y8E9s2flCDUBQy9rEiv!g~~60_35

maxresdefault

4/The statue of Zeus at Olympia…now as you my have read in earlier blogs….Zeus…and Thor represent JUPITER

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Statue_of_Zeus_at_Olympia#Loss_and_destruction

jupiter

5/Hanging gardens of Babylon…or Semiramis

http://interesttoworld.blogspot.co.uk/2012/11/hanging-gardens-of-semiramis-legend-for.html

Semiramis equates to VENUS the goddess of love and beauty

6/These next two are interesting…let’s take the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus first…Manly P Hall says in the secret teachings of all ages that this building was sacred to the planet MARS

https://books.google.co.uk/books?id=2ujsAgAAQBAJ&pg=PT200&dq=manly+p+hall+mausoleum+halicarnassus&hl=en&sa=X&ei=IBFzVePhHeOr7Aa-vIPQBw&ved=0CCAQ6AEwAA#v=onepage&q=manly%20p%20hall%20mausoleum%20halicarnassus&f=false

7/The lighthouse or Pharos of Alexandria is dedicated to the planet SATURN.

https://books.google.co.uk/books?id=2ujsAgAAQBAJ&pg=PT199&dq=manly+p+hall+pharos+alexandria&hl=en&sa=X&ei=NRNzVbG4JqPP7Qbx6IHQBg&ved=0CCoQ6AEwAA#v=onepage&q=manly%20p%20hall%20pharos%20alexandria&f=false

Elsewhere Manly P Hall said that the Mausoleum of Halicarnassus was dedicated to SATURN.

and the Pharos of Alexandria is dedicated to MARS…..seemingly contradicting the above quotes.

This used to puzzle me as to how he would get things so wrong.

However!…..It dawned on me just a few months back that he was letting us know again about that 5/7 divide….five of the wonders are the same…..and two of them can be interchangeable.

A mausoleum is linked to Saturn who is the god of time and death…and also mars……the cenotaph is a mausoleum and people gather round cenotaphs each year to remember the fallen in war…and Mars is the God of war.

The Pharos of Alexandria can also be used for both of the planets also.

MARS is connected with fire and the lighthouse used to have a fire in it each night to warn ships.

Saturn is Satan who rules over the fires of hell!…(see my blog on saturn for more info).

It is an inside joke once you get the patterns….the 5+2.

In a previous blog I mentioned that the seven also represent the vowels.

And they can be pronounced in a hard and soft way…..they have a double nature…they symbolize seven opposites.

This is why we can associate the seven with seven heavenly virtues….or seven deadly sins.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seven_virtues#Seven_heavenly_virtues

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

Philo Judaeus spoke about the number…linking the seven to the vowels and to music.

https://books.google.co.uk/books?id=D8IH3w291j8C&pg=PA55&lpg=PA55&dq=philo+judaeus+seven+vowels&source=bl&ots=jzGnc1YJkZ&sig=EVStdr_SRDPnQxLcKHCT7fasCLw&hl=en&sa=X&ei=60VgVY7yFoG9Uc_6gdgI&ved=0CCEQ6AEwAA#v=onepage&q=philo%20judaeus%20seven%20vowels&f=false

In myth we have the seven stringed lyre of Orpheus.

Orpheus-Lyre3_800
NOTICE THE SEVEN PLANETS IN THE STRINGS? It is these seven forces that bring “harmony” to nature!

Islam has the seven also….just a small example.

In previous blogs I spoke about the Tawaf….the circling around…or walking around the Kaaba.

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

This is also called circumambulation…however….did you notice in the wiki page above….how many time the faithful have to walk around the Kaaba?

Go on….guess!

He he….thanks for reading!

And please share the blog with others if you find it interesting

There is no Messiah or God or other deity coming from outside to save us….it is us awakening the God inside us ourselves…the still small voice inside us…or as Jesus said in the scriptures.

Three Cycles…The Day,Year and The Great Year.

NGC-1232

Wheels within wheels in a spiral array
A pattern so grand and complex”

Rush (Natural Science).

Ezekiel 1:16

“The appearance of the wheels and their work was like unto the colour of a beryl: and they four had one likeness: and their appearance and their work was as it were a wheel in the middle of a wheel.

Hi folks…this blog is a long one!

The purpose of this blog is to hopefully show why the three cycles of the day,year and great year affect us all.

Most people are unaware that there is a “Great year.”

And also it will show how the “Great Year” and the zodiac are right there in the bible….just under the surface.

It will also explain how there seems to be a contradiction in the way God acts….i.e in the old testament he is a cruel,angry,warmongering god…wiping out rival nations and sparing no one.

Yet when Jesus comes along he tells us his father is a beneficent god…caring for the individual and telling us to love our enemies….why?

Its to do with the zodiac and the planets!

In this case the difference between the planet Mars (ruler of Aries/God of War)…and the planet Jupiter (ruler of Pisces/Jovial beneficent God) as we go round the big clock/zodiac of precession.

To understand what I’m getting at,please try to familiarize yourself with the qualities of each of the 7 planets of the ancients(see my blog called “the magnificent 7” for some info)

Please click on all the links…..they will fill in the gaps and hopefully confirm what I’m saying.

So folks….here goes!

The day,the year….and the great year.

Three cycles or “wheels of time.”

Although we are familiar with the first two,most folks are unaware of the great year.

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

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

This blog is about the bible and the great year,and of course…the zodiac!

“This was the appearance and structure of the wheels: They sparkled like topaz, and all four looked alike. Each appeared to be made like a wheel intersecting a wheel.”

EZEKIEL 1:16 

“And if you look for it as for silver

and search for it as for hidden treasure,

then you will understand the fear of the Lord

and find the knowledge of God.”

PROVERBS 2:4,5

In the first chapter of his book,Ezekiel describes a vision where he sees four living creatures and “wheels within wheels.”

The 4 “creatures” are a bull,lion,man and eagle.

All occult orders understand that the 4 creatures are symbols and among other things can represent the 4 elements.

Churchgoers who take the bible literally,do not on the whole.

The bull,man,lion and eagle can respectively symbolize…earth,air,fire and water.

These are occult hidden teachings……..in no way mainstream….known to all the secret orders…and completely alien to your average person in the street.

here’s the result of a search for the Free Masonic order and their understanding of the symbols.

https://www.google.co.uk/#q=freemasonry+lion+bull+eagle+man+4+elements

The Rosicrucians.

https://www.google.co.uk/#q=rosicrucians+lion+bull+eagle+man+4+elements

And also the Hermeticists.

https://www.google.co.uk/#q=hermeticism+lion+bull+eagle+man+4+elements

Only now are we (the profane) glimpsing these formerly hidden things.

We understand that “hermetically sealed” means airtight…..the word “hermetically” pertains to hermeticists and Hermes,the Mercury of the Greeks.

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

These teachings have been kept “airtight” to all except those who are truly looking for truths.

And these once hidden teachings,are now being made available to all.

For more on the living creatures and their meanings,please see my other post below.

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

This time though,I would like to focus on the “wheels within wheels.”

Here are some examples of wheels,or cycles.

The three “wheels” or “cycles” are 1/the day,2/the year and 3/the great year.

The day has 24 hours.

The year contains 12 months.

And the great year lasts almost 26,000 years.

If we look at the first cycle,the 24 hour day as a zodiac wheel ….then dawn would be likened to the sign of Aries in the daily cycle.

Why?,well because the dawn or sunrise of the year starts in Aries.Its called the vernal or spring equinox,and it happens every year in the sign of Aries around March 21st.

Each day is like a miniature year.

In the day for example,take dawn as starting at 6am,in the 24 hour day,each 2 hours would equal one sign of the zodiac.

6-8am would be Aries,8-10am Taurus,10-12 Gemini…this is the spring of the day. (Morning is the equivalent of Spring in the day)

12-2pm Cancer,2-4pm Leo,4-6pm Virgo.(Afternoon is the Summer of the day)

6-8pm Libra,8-10pm Scorpio,10-12pm Sagittarius (Evening is the Autumn of the day)

12-2am Capricorn,2-4am Aquarius,4-6am Pisces are the (Winter “dark times” of the daily cycle)

They are like a miniature 4 seasons in one day.

6am (dawn) would be equivalent to the spring equinox of the day,when light overtakes the darkness and brings life back to the earth.

12 midday would be the summer solstice of the day,the highest point the sun reaches in the sky.

6 pm would be the autumnal equinox,when darkness again returns and “overthrows” the light.

12 midnight would be the winter solstice of the day,the darkest hour of both the day and year.

And this is the wheel or cycle of the day.

Each two hours or “zodiac sign” of the day has a different “feel” to it.

For instance,10-12 in the morning (Gemini) has a different atmosphere or “feel” to it than 2-4 (Leo) in the afternoon.

And so in every year,each sign of the zodiac has an atmosphere of its own,with unique attributes.The sign of Gemini (May/June) is late spring,Leo (July/August) is mid-summer,and again they each have a different ambience to them,caused by the angles of the sun.

The 12 month yearly cycle breaks down into the 4 seasons.

Aries/Taurus/Gemini are the signs of the spring months.

Cancer/Leo/Virgo are the signs of the summer months.

Libra/Scorpio/Sagittarius are the zodiac signs of the autumn months.

And finally,Capricorn/Aquarius/Pisces are the signs of the winter months.

The twelve signs of the zodiac are:-

Aries the lamb,Taurus the bull,Gemini the twins,Cancer the crab,Leo the Lion,Virgo the virgin,Libra the scales,Scorpio the scorpion,Sagittarius the centaur,Capricorn the goat,Aquarius the water carrier,and Pisces the two fish.

Let’s focus on one of the signs and see its relationship to the scriptures.

For this example we will pick the the sign of Cancer,the highest point the sun will climb to in the northern hemisphere,hence the “Tropic of cancer.”

Cancer the crab…also it was symbolized by the unicorn and also the dung beetle/scarab in Egypt.

https://okafala.wordpress.com/2014/07/02/the-crab-the-scarab-the-unicorn-the-chariot/

The sign of cancer is the very height of the suns transit through the year.It’s acme,its zenith…its highest point.

rsz_1zodiac_sine_wave
Notice where it says “Summer solstice” at the top of the upper part of the sine wave (June 21st) and you can see it is the beginning of the sign of Cancer.Jerusalem (summer solstice) is the heights..Heaven! The opposite (winter solstice in Capricorn around December 21st) would be Gehenna…the depths….Hell!

The sign of Cancer is also allegorized as Jerusalem,the heights,the most high,the zenith,the top of the mountain…Heaven!

Here’s an interesting verse in the bible that bible folks still argue about to this day.

Why did Jesus require two donkeys for his glorious ride into Jerusalem?

http://www.tektonics.org/qt/twodonkeys.php

The verse in question is matthew 21:2.

The King James version of the bible names this passage of scripture the “Triumphal entry.”

And it is a triumphal entry…why?

Because Jesus/The Sun is about to ride into Jerusalem/summer solstice/sign of cancer as king.

Jesus/The Sun will reign as the “most high” as it reaches the highest point of its yearly journey.

And the people shout this in Matthew chapter 2 verse 9.

“Hosanna to the Son of David!”

“Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!”[c]

“Hosanna in the highest heaven!”

And the people still welcome the Sun/King/Jesus at the Summer Solstice to this day,just as they did back then.

let-the-sunshine-i_1662485i
People giving reverence to the King at Stonehenge at dawn.

Do you get it?

The sun is almost above your head on this day…it is at its highest point of the year.

Its all about the sun,the zodiac and the constellations.

“Jerusalem” symbolically is the sign of cancer…the summer solstice…the tropic of cancer is the heights of the year.

The sun is reigning as the most high over mankind in its glory.It is the longest day and the light/sun Jesus is on his throne.

So getting back to the question…why did Jesus tell his followers to get two asses to ride into Jerusalem?

Look at the constellation of Cancer,and what are the chances of this?

The constellation of Cancer has two donkeys or asses.

Asellus Borealis (The northern donkey)

Asellus Australis (The southern donkey)

image008

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So when the sun is in the sign of Cancer (the crab) at the summer solstice,there are two donkeys with him,just as the bible says.And he’s at his height of power at the tropic of Cancer (Jerusalem)

However,what goes up must also come down,and the sun will be decreasing after this point and the days will get progressively shorter once more.

So why was the sign of Cancer symbolized by either a scarab or a crab?

WingedScarabBeetle
The scarab beetle with the sun.

The thing about the dung beetle/scarab is it pushes a ball of dung backwards.

Dung-Beetle
The scarab pushes the golden ball backwards,just as the sun at the summer solstice starts to move back wards down to the tropic of Capricorn.

And the crab has its sideways walk,looks like it is retreating.Another interesting fact about the crab is that it also sheds its shell.

And this pictures the sun in Cancer,retreating right after being at its zenith,the sun starts “walking” sideways/backwards in its yearly journey round the zodiac wheel.

http://www.thealchemicaljourney.co.uk/uncategorized/cancer-the-crab-the-scarab

And so it was for Jesus also.It was all downhill from there on for him after he rode into Jerusalem in triumph.

Riding into Jerusalem was his zenith,the people waved palm branches and hailed him as king.

jesus-christ-riding-into-jerusalem-for-passover
Notice the sun at Jesus’s head.

However,after this,Jesus is about to get betrayed/judged and finally killed.

It’s the story of the sun!

So that was the day and year,but now we get to the great year,also called the precession of the equinoxes,or Platonic year.

Also axial precession,and this “precession” is due to the wobble of the earth,like a spinning top seemingly turns opposite to its spin as it wobbles.

notice in the picture below…the two different directions of the earths spin

670px-Earth_precession.svg

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

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Precession#Axial_precession_.28precession_of_the_equinoxes.29

In the above wiki page notice the sun moves 1 degree every 72 years.

We will touch on that in a future blog.

The bible is telling us about the movement through the great year in pictorial poetry.

The massive cycle of nearly 26000 years.

And it starts in the sign of Taurus on the big year in the bible….as we are moving backwards through the zodiac,reaching a different sign of the zodiac roughly every 2000 years.

This is why it is called precession and not procession.

Hence we go from sign to sign like this.Taurus/Aries/Pisces and Aquarius.

And each one of the twelve,2000 year periods are called “ages”

As we move from one sign to the other there is a guide to usher people through the birth of the new age….these are the messiahs.

Other groups call the Messiah by a different name,but they are all the same.

Buddhists call him Maitreya,Hindus call him Krishna,Christians call him Christ,and Muslims call him Imam Mahdi or “the twelfth Imam.” (twelve due to the twelve signs of the zodiac)

If you read the articles in the wiki pages below,please notice all the numbers are linked with all the other religions. (because they are all linked by the zodiac)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Muhammad_al-Mahdi

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

The new age is a whole new way of doing things,a whole new consciousness/atmosphere/collective psyche. It’s a new system of things!

For instance,when mankind was moving from the sign of Taurus to the birth of the new age in the sign of Aries in the big precessional clock……the “messiah” or guide back then was Moses.

The age of Taurus was the time of bull/cow/calf worship (we still see remnants of cow worship in India to this day).

So at the cusp of Taurus/Aries we have the scenario of Moses heading up Mount Sinai to get the commandments from God.These commandments or laws are the new rules for the new age that has arrived.

GoldCalf

However while Moses is up the mountain,the people down below make a golden calf.

The Golden Calf is representing the age of Taurus.

The people also have an orgy (sahaq) See section 3(d) in the page below.

http://www.enduringword.com/commentaries/0232.htm

Why?

The sign of Taurus is ruled by the planet Venus.

Venus rules the sign of Taurus,and some of the attributes of Venus are love,beauty.But also desire,sex and orgies..Hence the word “venereal” in venereal disease comes from Venus.Another name for Venus is”Aphrodite,”and it is from Aphrodite that we get “Aphrodisiac,”again connected with desire and sex.

And you also get song lyrics like this.

“Goddess on the mountain top
Burning like a silver flame(of course she will have a silver flame,silver is a feminine colour)
The summit of beauty and love
And Venus was her name

She’s got it
Yeah, baby, she’s got it
I’m your Venus, I’m your fire
your desire

But those golden calf  worshippers of the age of Taurus haven’t discerned that the precessional clock has moved from Taurus to Aries.(They are still clinging to the old ways).

When Moses comes down from the mountain,he has the “culprits” all killed.

Because the sign of Taurus is over.

Please note well the above scenario,because at the start of every age,there is a culling off of all those who cling to the old ways and old Gods (ways of thinking)….still clinging to the old patterns of life.

Moses is leading the people from the old age of Taurus into the new sign of Aries.(The lamb/sheep/ram)All new symbols and images.

Could this be why Moses is pictured with horns on his head….lambs horns?

Here are some other indications that they were heading into the sign of Aries.

Every zodiac sign has a motto.

BYwlEa5CEAAY2Y1.jpg-large

The motto for Aries is “I AM.”

When Moses asks God who shall he say sent him?….what does god answer?

Tell them “I AM” sent you.

http://biblehub.com/exodus/3-14.htm

We learned the planet Venus rules the sign of Taurus,but what planet rules the sign of Aries?

Mars!

Mars is the god of war,and this is why now their god is the “Lord of hosts,”or “Jehovah of armies.”

http://www.gotquestions.org/Lord-of-hosts.html

They are constantly at war with their neighbours,from the influence of Mars.

Even today we get the word”martial” from Mars,and also the word “march.” Mars  rules Aries (Ares is the Greek word for the god Mars).

This is also why in the scriptures Paul preaches at Mars Hill,also called the Areopagus.

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

Soldiers also “march” off to war.

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

It is important to know what planet rules what sign,because it will answer why God seems to change all the time.

From a warring tyrant in the Old testament to the caring,beneficent,loving father of the New Testament.

More on that in a bit,but for now,back to the Aries symbolism.

The Jews were known in the old testament to be shepherds…or linked with ram/lamb/sheep symbolism (think King David who was a shepherd),they also blew the rams horns when they brought down the walls of Jericho.All of this is Aries symbolism.

Another interesting thing of note about Aries is that it is also a fire sign.

http://www.astrology.com/article/zodiac-signs-aries-sun-sign.html

And didn’t Moses talk to the burning bush?

Now that was the Age of Aries the lamb,now on to the next age in the precessional clock and we arrive at Pisces. (the two fish)

So after Moses and his age is over with,the next messiah will be the guide taking people from Aries to the sign of Pisces,so step up Jesus,the Piscean Messiah!

This is also why Jesus was called the lamb of god also,he was heralding the end of the age of Aries,just as the golden calf heralded the end of the age of Taurus.

The sign of Pisces is two fish,the motto is “I believe”(see chart above) and the ruling planet is Jupiter/Jove or Zeus.

We get the word “jovial” from Jove or Jupiter.

So we should expect some fishy type symbolism from the life of Jesus…and some Jupiterian stuff also.

In astrology Jupiter is the greater benefic,as opposed to Mars who is the lesser malefic.

http://thezodiac.com/jupiter2.htm

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

And right on cue with the fish symbolism,his disciples were to be “fishers of men” and some were fishermen by trade.

In fact when Jesus starts gathering his disciples,they are out fishing in their boats.

calling-the-fishermen01s

Jesus fed the masses with “two fish,”the sign of Pisces is two fish.

He also gets a coin from a fish’s mouth.

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=matthew%2017:24-17:27&version=NIV

Incidentally,it was a four drachma coin.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coin_in_the_fish’s_mouth

Early Christians identified each other by the symbol of the fish.

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

In fact Christians to this day have fish symbols on the back of their cars.

Fish-Symbol-car
Fish symbolism is connected to the sign of Pisces.

“I believe” is the motto of Pisces…and Jesus ministry was all about finding “believers.” The people all believed in Jesus.

Doubting Thomas after touching the wound of Jesus “believed,” did he not?

Jesus says in the scriptures,”whoever believes in me will get eternal life.”

It’s all about belief (I believe),which is the motto of Pisces.

As touched on above,Jupiter (the ruler of Pisces) is the benevolent planet,unlike mars the war planet (mars rules Aries).

This is now why.God is benevolent,Jesus preaches a loving god/caring god,in opposition to the warlike God of the Old testament.

Again,all because in the great year,the clock has moved from the age of Aries,(ruled by mars)to the new age of Pisces ruled by Jupiter.All due to axial precession,and how each age has a different effect on the planet and our psyches/consciousness.

Jupiter of the Romans is also called Zeus in Greek.

This is why the new religion of Christianity is built on Peter… The Jew-Peter (Jupiter)

Jezeus and Jewpeter,just a coincidence?wordplay?

In bodily astrology the sign of Pisces rules the feet.(see the fish at the feet?)

astro-main

Now wasn’t Jesus connected with feet?He was walking everywhere.

Didn’t Jesus get his feet washed by the sinful woman,and didn’t he also wash his disciples feet?

36618_all_026_03jesus-washing-feet

Didn’t he also get a nail in the feet?

jesus-feet-combo

The article of clothing still associated today with Jesus would be “Jesus sandals.”

And we still have this this famous picture today associated with Jesus.

Walk With Me.jpg.opt550x400o0,0s550x400

Aren’t Christians “footstep followers” of Jesus?

Some contend the statue of peter at the Vatican may be an old statue of Zeus/Jupiter.

Even if it isn’t.,the statues feet are almost worn away from all the rubbing and kissing.

P1110149

So Pisces is connected with fish,feet,Jupiter,benevolence,and the motto “I believe.”

But one time the age of Pisces will be at it’s end,and then will have to make way for the next “new age” and that new age is the age of Aquarius.

And what do we have swirling in the ether?Songs such as this one below.

And,according to some,we are now at the cusp of the next “new age.”

Jesus the old Piscean guide said he would be with us all the days until the end of the “age” did he not?He promised he would be with us till the end of the age of Pisces.

We have a “new age” movement today do we not?,we have great unrest everywhere.The birth of the new age is upon us,and like any birth,it will get bloody and stressful until the new child/new age arrives.

The new age of Aquarius is the “son of man” who will arrive,Aquarius is the only man of the zodiac (all the rest are animals,twin boys,centaurs etc)Aquarius is the man with the water pitcher.

And right on cue,Jesus tells us this in luke 22:10

“As you enter the city, a man carrying a jar of water will meet you. Follow him to the house that he enters”

Notice the man with the pitcher of water? (Aquarius symbolism)

Notice we also have to follow him into the “house” (houses are connected with astrology and the zodiac)This would be the Aquarian “house” of the zodiac.

A whole new way of thinking/rules/teachings/ways will enter into our psyches/mass consciousness….it’s a renaissance of sorts.

The old institutions are now starting to go stale,can you see it?….feel it?

This is why the bible says there has to be a great apostasy (falling away),before the next system/age arrives.People can see through the lies of their religions and are turning away.This new age of information is crumbling all the old paradigms/models/patterns of living all around us.

The old ways will be eradicated,the old wineskins/institutions cannot contain the new wine.

Mark2:22

“And no one pours new wine into old wineskins. Otherwise, the wine will burst the skins, and both the wine and the wineskins will be ruined. No, they pour new wine into new wineskins.”

It’s an out with the old and in with the new!

Yet people will try to cling to the old ways,even to the death,just as they did in the story of the golden calf in Moses day.

In Jesus time,there was a great culling also,Jerusalem was surrounded by the Romans and those who didn’t heed the warning of Jesus perished.What warning?

Luke 21:20

“And when you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then you will know that the time of its destruction has arrived.Then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains, let those in the city get out, and let those in the country not enter the city.”

And the historian Josephus said over 1 million people died.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Siege_of_Jerusalem_%2870_CE%29

So there was a culling when the age of Taurus gave way to the age of Aries,and a culling when the age of Aries gave way to the age of Pisces.

And moving into the next age will be no different.

Have a wee look at the motto for Aquarius above,the motto for the age that is coming.

Ponder on that motto and you will comprehend why the bible says there will be a great apostasy from religion,which is all but belief and superstition.

The book of revelation also shows Aquarian symbols throughout for those who can see it.

Aquarius is ruled by Saturn (and Uranus,more in a later blog)

Such as this.

Revelation 22:1

“Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, as clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb”water being poured is an Aquarian motif.

And also this.

Revelation 14:15

“Then another angel came out of the temple and called in a loud voice to him who was sitting on the cloud, “Take your sickle and reap, because the time to reap has come, for the harvest of the earth is ripe.”

Saturn who rules Aquarius is the God who is associated with the sickle and scythe,with which he reaps the harvest of the earth.

unknown1
Notice all the symbolism of Saturn from this medieval painting,Aquarius bottom left,Capricorn bottom right,the six pointed star of Saturn,and holding the sickle….the harvest Saturn is connected with is the harvest of humans as spoken of in Revelation.

In the above  verses…can you see Aquarius and also Saturn featured?Can you see the grim reaper there?(old father time) Saturn is connected with the harvest.

In the book of revelation 14:3,the “new song” is the whole new way of living/thinking/doing.

Its a renaissance,a new tuning.

Jesus and Moses were not real historical people,they were representations/composites of those who were awake and conscious of what was happening around them.They were the light,the consciousness,they were those who came back to life,those who rose from the dead…they were the dry bones come to life!

Its an awakening…a new realization…a paradigm shift.

I remember finding out the truth about Jehovah’s Witnesses.

Allowing myself to question dearly held beliefs,that we were told never to question.

It was a massive awakening for me,very frightening also,it was as if I awoke from a hypnotic spell.The scales fell from my eyes.And I could see through all of the deceptions and lies.

I never felt so alone as I had next to no one to talk to about it though,and yet I felt empowered by knowing the truth about “the truth,”as Jehovah’s witnesses like to call themselves.

Every ex-Jehovah’s Witness talks about having an awakening/a dawning that it wasn’t the truth…and for every one it is an incredible journey.

its an a-haaa!I get it! moment.”I see the real truth behind the veil” type of understanding.

Seeing the man behind the curtain in the Wizard of Oz.

pay-no-attention-to-the-man-behind-the-curtain

Jesus said he would bring division did he not?

“Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword.For I have come to turn “‘a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law–a man’s enemies will be the members of his own household.’

Jehovah’s witnesses can no longer talk to anyone who speaks out against the organization,they must be totally shunned.

Watchtower 2012 isolate family and friends 2

Jesus is a metaphor for the truth and light (darkness is ignorance/lying) and when people accept “real” truth they accept Jesus/the light/truth/conscious awakening,that is why Jesus is the a-ha moment.

The dawning of the age of Aquarius will be like that for mankind.

At the end of every age,people also escape from bondage/slavery.

In Moses time they escaped from Pharaoh and Egypt…and bondage to the Egyptians.

God told Pharaoh to “Let my people go.”

Exodus 8:1

In Jesus time they escaped from the false teachings of the lawmakers/pharisees/scribes leaders of that time also.

Jesus said,”you will know the truth and the truth will set you free”

John 8:32

There will be an escape to freedom in this age also,however….

“To escape from your prison,you first have to see you are in one”

Finally……..here is a quote from the book “whee! we,wee all the way home”

The Bible and the Zodiac

Image

Welcome to all who made their way to my blog.

The bible and the zodiac?You may be asking yourself,isn’t that an oxymoron,doesn’t the bible condemn astrology?

If you asked me that 10 years ago I would have agreed.

However I am going to make a claim that will disturb and upset people,and if that happens to be the case, I understand,I really do,I know it did disturb me at first.

It is difficult to look hard and truthfully at dearly cherished and long held beliefs,and to even consider them as being wrong,it is as hard as staring at the midday sun,and mostly everyone will turn away from doing so!

So please know I mean no harm.

My claim concerns the zodiac,astrology and the bible.

Astrology and the zodiac is all throughout the bible,hidden in plain view for those who have eyes to see it,and are willing to dig just under the surface of the bible verses.

And it means much more than horoscopes,reading your stars in the newspaper,fortune telling and weird animals in a circle.

It isn’t woo or gobbledygook,it is a form of “ancient science,”and it’s amazing once you “get” it…..as I hope to show.

First though,how did I get to this point,how did I get here,and what brought me to this thinking?

Well since I was little,I’ve been asking,”what is life all about?”

My mum said I was always interested in wanting to know who God was even when I was little,I always remember her telling me one of the first questions I ever asked was “Who is God?”

I also wanted to know what the bible was saying from a young age,I could not understand a word of it,yet it seemed somehow important to people.

I always thought it was telling us something,but for the life of me,I couldn’t grasp what.

However,the need to know what it was saying,seemed at times insatiable.

This led me to religion,I tried churches here,there and everywhere….but they didn’t seem to feed my “hunger.”

I was always as empty leaving them as I arrived,yet everyone else around me seemed happy enough,satisfied with what they were taught,so therefore I used to think the fault lay with me.

Then I became a Jehovah’s witness through a circle of friends,one of my friends had a sister who was in the navy,and he told me she was going to leave the Royal Navy to become a Jehovah’s Witness.

Well I knew nothing about Jehovah’s Witnesses and asked him why it would make her leave what I thought was a good career,it sounded a strange decision to make.

He said she had found “the truth” about the bible and she could no longer remain in her career.

Then I had another friend who after talking one time about “spiritual things” with the same group of people (none of whom actually were Jehovah’s witnesses) he gave me a book to read saying it was very interesting.

The book was “You can live forever in a paradise on earth” written by the watchtower society.

When I started reading it,it seemed to use bible verses all the time to explain it’s stance on things,and I thought it had answers for every question raised.

For compared to my little understanding I had at that time on my life’s journey,and the understanding of every churchgoer I had met previously,JW’s seemed to know a lot.

They seemed to know their bible well,and when asked any question,could quote scriptures fluently to answer them,and boy could they flick through the bible,knowing every book it seemed and pinpoint the answer in seconds.

I thought I’d found where God was! (uh oh)

I met my wife there,and I was a Jehovah’s witness for over two decades,thinking I had the truth.

However (I bet you knew there would be a however…he he),the gnawing returned and eventually my questioning led me out of there too.

I started to realize the witnesses knowledge of the bible was by rote,and they never strayed much off their well trodden path.

And when I really started to question “our” dearly held beliefs…the answers were not forthcoming…however hostility was.

I remember the occasion of the last circuit assembly ( a circuit assembly is a gathering of a couple thousand JW’s),I asked a brother I knew,a simple question I had at the back of my mind,concerning  Job 40:17.

(You’ll probably laugh at the absurdity of the conversation but it’s where JW’s are in their thinking)

Jehovah’s witnesses say that the “behemoth” talked about in Job was a hippopotamus according to the “society.” (the top brass).

The verse says…..

“Its tail sways like a cedar; the sinews of its thighs are close-knit.”

I said to the brother that I didn’t think the tail of a hippo resembled a cedar as it was just a little short thing.

Hippo tail 2

His answer shocked me,he said to me “Watch what you’re doing,beware of looking too close into things…as the brothers who write the books know much more than you,and to start researching yourself can get you into spiritual trouble”

I thought,”WOW!” we are really restricted.in that we cannot even talk about the bible verses openly and “stray off the path” of what we’re told…not even one iota or people get nervous around you.”

(petty stuff eh?)

And adding on to that experience,I saw a “sister” (JW’s call each other “brother” and “sister”) crying outside the main auditorium and was being calmed and comforted from one of the assistants.Her response again stopped me in my tracks…she actually said “I should try crying like this more often,I got more attention and help here,than I’ve ever had at my own hall.”

I could see the poor woman was depressed,obviously felt unloved and unnoticed,and all this in “Jehovah’s loving organization.”

After that I went back into the main auditorium and saw the “man from Bethel” (Bethel is the main headquarters) giving his talk,walking up and down…people were hanging on to his every word,nodding and applauding,all the while I could see some of the things he was saying weren’t right.

The scales were falling from my eyes!…..big time!

Then my questioning continued,I remember saying to my wife one time,”I think there is something wrong with the Governing Body as they have had an affiliation with the United Nations for 10 years” (Jehovah’s witnesses teach that the UN is the seven headed wild beast of the book of revelations).

And the watchtower’s response was that they only did it to gain a “library card”

un.pt.guardian.2001-10-15lettertoenquiryHowever the UN have stated that you do NOT have to be an NGO (non-governmental organization) to use the library…..so someone was lying…….guess who?…he he

image3161image2971

So I said to my wife,I think there is wrongdoing going on with the Governing body,but not to worry…”Jehovah is still in charge”,at that she burst out crying saying I was trying to destroy her faith!

It stunned me!…it really did!I thought she would at least look at what I was talking about.

She didn’t…I could sense the fear from her!

Things from then on took a life of its own,there was no going back for me…I wanted to follow what was true,not lies perceived as truth.

I started “allowing” myself to research further and the house of cards collapsed completely.

I started to try to help others see the sham of the watchtower and all of the lies they were telling……oops! big mistake…no one wanted to hear it (that shocked me again).

In fact it turns out….everything was my fault!…I was the baddie for questioning.

I even received a visit from two of the elders on a shepherding call

They did not appreciate my sincere questions,or give me any answers that satisfied,and when I showed the convincing evidence of their false teachings,it was water off a duck’s back.

I (to my amazement) even received bitter opposition for even daring to ask such questions.

The cracks began to spread like lightning bolts……….

To say I was shocked when the house of cards collapsed would be an understatement.

My whole world evaporated before my eyes.

“Friends” who I thought were real friends disappeared,whoosh,gone,overnight!

In my greatest time of need when I needed someone to talk to,I had no one,I never felt more alone.

I want to state here though,they aren’t bad people,not at all,they are good people under a “spell/delusion” that binds them.

A “spell” that compels them to follow “the faithful and discreet slave” obediently without question.

It reminds me now of the German people under Nazism,compelled to obey by peer pressure,never to question the leadership.

JW’s are never to doubt God’s sole channel,to obey and follow no matter what,and to castigate/shun those who question the leadership.

They still ignore me to this day,it is incredible how you can be loved one day and hated the next,by your whole social circle.

Under immense pressure though,my wife,our kids,all stayed by me even though they are still witnesses.

Although it did cause an earthquake in their lives,they stood through it and we are still intact 8 years later.

I started to read the books I was told were dangerous “apostate” books …yet  they were the very books that would free my mind from the “spell” I was under…and believe me I am convinced it is a form of mind manipulation/control or as some call it…undue influence.

Those books were telling me the other side of witness world,and it helped me to have an “informed” opinion,rather than a “uniform” opinion.

I had no idea I was even under such a “spell” in the slightest,however looking back I now accept it was a form of conditioning,influence……….mind control!

I had an awakening of sorts,a new realization,a paradigm shift…an enlightening!

We were told as JW’s,that “apostate” books would confuse and trick us,lead us to destruction of faith.

That is wrong!…..to have an informed opinion you need to see the other sides point of view and if you really,REALLY have the truth it should stand up to scrutiny and should swat any lies like a gnat.

I realized that the people who wrote “apostate” books weren’t the demons we were told they were.

They were merely folks who could no longer ignore that small quiet voice inside,listened to their conscience,and tried to help those imprisoned by the lies of the governing body.

Even though they knew the dramatic consequences that speaking out would lead to,such as an ousting from their social circle….as I eventually would come to realize for myself.

For anyone interested Raymond Franz was such a man,he lost everything for “TTATT” (the truth about the truth) (Jehovah’s witnesses call their religion “the truth“) and you can read his story in the book “crisis of conscience.”

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

All of the above is said as background to how I arrived here.

So here I was,back where I began.

SO WHAT IS IT ALL ABOUT?

Then came the jolt that started me on this amazing journey.

And it concerned the book of Ezekiel and his visions

Who was Ezekiel?

Ezekiel was among the captives taken into exile to Babylon from Jerusalem in the scriptures.

While in Babylon by the river Chebar (or Kebar) he had a vision of a chariot with four living creatures.

Vision-of-Ezekiel
Raphael’s depiction of the four creatures starting from from bottom right going clockwise… bull,lion,man and eagle

http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Ezekiel+1&version=NIV

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Living_creatures_%28Bible%29

The 4 living creatures were:-

A bull.

A lion.

A man.

And an eagle.

And here’s where serendipity entered into things.

My cousin who had an interest in astrology said they were the 4 fixed signs of the zodiac.

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

The bull was Taurus

The lion was Leo

The man was Aquarius

And the eagle represented Scorpio!

I thought,stop there,I hardly know the zodiac but I know that the eagle isn’t a sign for Scorpio…the scorpion is…I knew that much….or so I thought!

However a quick google and there it was!

https://www.google.co.uk/#q=scorpio+eagle

The next thing that made me go “hmmm” was looking at those four signs on the zodiac wheel.

they formed a cross on the wheel.

55

A cross?…now isn’t that strange?

However….what did it all mean?

Why were Ezekiel and John who wrote “the book of revelations” telling us of the 4 creatures?

Ezekiel 1:10 KJV

“As for the likeness of their faces, they four had the face of a man, and the face of a lion, on the right side: and they four had the face of an ox on the left side; they four also had the face of an eagle.”

Revelations 4:7

“The first creature was like a lion, and the second creature like a calf, and the third creature had a face like that of a man, and the fourth creature was like a flying eagle.”

Next time I will continue my journey.

And talk more about these 4 strange creatures and their link to the tetragrammaton,and how they symbolize the same concept….or formula!

And all Jehovah’s witnesses know about the tetragrammaton (meaning “four letters”).

Thanks for reading.

Peace to all peoples of the world!
