|Do you believe the following:The word “God” derives from the ancient Jewish word Jad-Havah which means “male and female” and since the builders of these religions were male chauvinist then of course “God” was male.
Personally, my belief system is continually evolving.
I think that is a good thing.
here is an example: what if this is true … according to the Maimonides, God has no body and is essentially unknowable.
Jewish (maybe all?) Mystics, by contrast, make a distinction between the unknowable, Ein Sof, and an androgynous Zer Anpin.
And the Zer Anpin is spoken of in the Sefer Bahir.
And the Sefer Bahir is also known as the Book of Illumination.
I like that word … Illumination … … now I feel like continuing.
|Zer Anpin: In Sefer Bahir, this is the aspect of God’s generativity, God as Creator. is understood to be the androgynous divine source of life that is mirrored in the human genital forms.
-Rabbi G.W. Dennis
So yes it appears everything defaults to the generative powers …
And in ancient symbolism, there is one symbol that immediately ‘pops’ into mind. The east Indian Shiva Linga.
great info found here
And for those of you that think I might be drifting a little off course talking about genitalia when we were talking about butterflies and bees (all exhibiting sacred geometric design), please try to stay with me.
First of all, fellas, once down on all primal fours, here is a question for those of you still practicing the Oral Traditions* … what do those labia lips all swollen look like? wings of a butterfly? a flower? smell the nectar? dive in and smell the rose … but the analogies do not end there.
No they do not.
Let us place my attempts aside, those efforts trying to express something difficult with humor, a humor intentionally connected to the creativity that was meant to humor us. The subtle and the sublime interconnections of a mathematical puzzle that the elusive ‘graviton’ confirms we are indeed one. We just can’t prove it empirically.
Scientists think they will know it…fundamentalists feel they already do … and many of us are stuck in the ‘middle earth’, where the battles seem to rage endlessly, stuck in the cycles of Buddhist Samsara.
|Samsara, the Sanskrit and Pali term for “continuous movement” or “continuous flowing” refers in Buddhism to the concept of a cycle of birth (jati) and consequent decay and death….etc…etc….|
So what does all this have to do with butterflies, bees, and symbols of generative proCREATION?
Here comes the end of the road I promise you.
And it is a cul-de-sac.
Have you ever heard of the Shrine of the Book?
I had not until last week.
And when I started doing the ‘G’, meaning I started ‘googling’ the Shrine of the Book, my intuitive curiosities were amply rewarded.
Quickly here are some pictures of the complex known as the Shrine of the Book
Which symbol represents the male generative powers?
Which symbol represents the female generative powers?
Interesting color selection.
Interesting Black 2001 rectangular building shaped monolith lying on its ‘side’.
Interesting womb like white dome, like a time tunnel or a wormhole … but a white hole, is there such a thing?
Interesting because this basic archetype of structure is found everywhere.
A known and undisputed fact about the ancients is that they tried very very hard to structure their environments, especially the Sacred Temples … as reflections, mirrors or maybe extensions of how they interpreted the cosmos.
Like this photo shows.
And this one also shares the same basic structure.
But it is called the Universe of the Lamas
And this symbol found in a Catholic Monastery in Peru hints at the same basic underlying structure.
But the symbol above is even more revealing as our dear PO departed (crucified?) friend Raphael tried so hard to illustrate is that the symbol uses the colors of alchemy (i.e.in the proper sequence, starting with a black center), which dealt with the spiritual concerns, the transmutation of the individual and it at the same time this is also a symbol for what we call PRECESSION.
So this symbol is a symbol that can be applied to both the Macrocosmic evolution of our Sun but also as a symbol that can be applied to the Microcosmic Man.
|The shrine is built as a white dome, covering a structure placed two-thirds below the ground, that is reflected in a pool of water that surrounds it. Across from the white dome is a black basalt wall. The colors and shapes of the building are based on the imagery of the Scroll of the War of the Sons of Light Against the Sons of Darkness, whereas the white dome symbolizes the Sons of Light and the black wall symbolizes the Sons of Darkness.|
A white circle or dome and a black rectangle.
A circle we know is considered perfect because it exhibits perfect symmetry.
But why a rectangle?
There is a code I could share with you, it is not a secret, but it once was.
This is quite simply a numerical code that can be found in myth, folklore, symbols and all ancient scriptures.
This is how you know it, and recognize it best for those of you who have studied sacred geometry, or maybe a little Dan Brown History found in the Da Vinci Code.
Question I do ponder since making these connections … what color should the rectangle be?
This next image slows the process down and you can see the relationships between squares and rectangles literally and figuratively unfolding … using numbers that equate to shape.
I ponder if they got the color symbolism correct or what is it pointing toward?
So I googled white hole.
|In astrophysics, a White Hole is the time reversal of a black hole. While a black hole acts as an absorber for any matter that crosses the event horizon, a White Hole acts as a source that ejects matter from its event horizon. The sign of the acceleration is invariant under time reversal, so both black and white holes attract matter. The only potential difference between them is in the behavior at the horizon…|
So I wonder … does the theology present itself as pursing the concepts of ‘Time Reversal of a Black Hole?’
Massive Black Holes are found in the center of all the galaxies, surrounded by thousands of mini or micro black holes…the Universe is kinda like an Austin Powers film.
The consistency of these revered symbols suggest to me how I should spend these end of days … it has become clear to me, it is all about finding compassion and love through shaggin’.
Speaking of which I am still looking for an apocalyptic shaggedelic gal.
A woman who knows she is a groovey goddess**.
Someone who is willing to run naked with me, through the fields of pairs and opposites, among the nymphs, fairies, cheery chiral bees and butterflies, eating mushrooms and smoking herb or maybe eating herb and smoking mushrooms?
Will it really matter?
This is what is all about evidently.
A script given to humanity, if they want to survive … if we want to continue to exist … it is a simple equation … my lingam cries out for a yoni to call home…with a white dome or black dome.
It don’t matter…
Too long a post?
For those of you who want more black vs white light shed on this discussion, I must refer you to one of Raph’s posts.
Enjoy the post.
I did very much.
And if you want to read how the 4 colors of Alchemy connect to AstroPhysics in a very ‘Raphael manner’ of mystical conjecture and connection read this blog.
So this guy got the boot eh?
I have read some of the other posts, (sharing information?), thoughts of others here, and though I must admit, everybody is a capable messenger of truths, (Hamlet’s Mill proves this), I still wonder why Raphael disappeared, do NOT pass GO or the Hall of Flames, (along with ALL his posts) … and yet others are allowed to battle it out in PO hell…known as the Hall of Flames?
NEO did I answer your question about my evolving beliefs about what is GOD?
** anybody heard from Emma?
gee I am in awe
Golem, what does the “G” in the Compass and Square represent?
God, Goat, Gold or Geometry?
‘Google’ everything I say silly
