Ancient Alchemical Esoteric Art That Leaves Humanity Clues About The Nature of Consciousness

Published

on

I’ve long been fascinated by Egypt as a possible connection to ancient wisdom and have written about how I see its art as a portal to a connection to consciousness.

Researchers like Graham Hancock have influenced by sense of these connections and point to the possibility of a source “super” civilization that may have had some of its knowledge recorded metaphorically or artistically in places like Central America, Mexico, Peru, India, China, as well as in Egypt.

Graham asserts that “stuff keeps getting older” and makes a strong case for a cataclysmic event that wiped out such a civilization with a comet impact about 12,000 years ago, approximately the time Plato attributed to the decline of Atlantis, which may be much more than a mere myth.

These theories are beautifully and graphically explored in the web series Magical Egypt.

The latest segment proposes that the two “polarities” of Consciousness seem to arise from (or reference) the two hemispheres of the brain.

These are the “dualities” of energetic complementarians — Yin/Yang, Plus/Minus, Male/Female, Hot/Cold, Night/Day, Sun/Moon and so on.

In Episode 4 I was introduced to the amazing work of Richart Cassaro, who is the author of two books that explore deep connections between secret societies and ancient civilizations. Written In Stone: Decoding The Secret Masonic Religion Hidden In Gothic Cathedrals And World Architecture gives the best account available in print about how religion began and how struggles over the meaning of spirituality shaped the world we live in today.

What struck me deeply — besides the wonderful comparisons of ancient structures from all of these locales and their overlapping, identical motifs, was his focus on the “Godself image.”

This ubiquitous image displays the complementary forces in either hand of a deity, mythical creature, or actual spirit animal with emphasis on the head or disc at the top of the torso.

According to Cassaro this disc is a Third Force — a reconciling or “vertical” dimension that rules over the conflicting forces and presumably “intelligently” creates the result for the potentiality of energies within the expression of THE PRESENT MOMENT.

Cassaro asserts that like modern thinkers such as Eckhart Tolle, ancients believed that time and space are mental projections affected by the sensory limitations of sentient creatures.

The sole connection to a higher dimension that affects us sporadically according to our consciousness and level of being is literally “time-less” — and is experienced only in our lifetimes within moments of complete clarity.

These beliefs can be traced back to Gnosticism and the actual parables of Jesus and again, a “lost Christian” tradition that sought transcendence of the mental realms to connect with a reality beyond thought.

One figure that stands out as a philosophical proponent of ancient Christianity in the modern age is Gurdjieff.

Gurdjieff and his student Ouspensky, author of the classic In Search of the Miraculousbrought a teaching that he hinted came from “Pre-Sand” Egypt — a time which geologists like Robert Schoch have recently identified as more temperate and accounting for the striations at the bases of the Sphinx that were caused by water erosion (hard to imagine in today’s Sahara but possible before the great flood or other cataclysm that might have wiped out a “super civilization” or source culture).

Gurdjieff also asserted a sacred Law of the Threes — three basic forces of Nature that shape our reality — the forces were also:

Affirming – Denying – Reconciling

Gurdjieff had a prayer for these “holy” forces in his own work, Beelzebub’s Tales for his Grandson.

“Holy Affirming
Holy Denying
Holy Reconciling
Transsubstantiate within me for my being.”

In the summary of Gurdjieff’s work linked above, philosopher Jacob Needleman also describes, “the idea of the three centers in man is one of the most central ideas in the whole of the Gurdjieffian system. Man’s confusion, his lack of unity, his unnecessary suffering, his immorality—in fact everything that characterizes the sorrow of the human condition—come about because these centers of perception are wrongly related, wrongly functioning, and because man does not see or care to know this about himself.”

These three centers relate to the three forces obviously, but again what is striking is that the reconciling force does not “act” in the present moment, but actually, somehow, beyond our normal comprehension literally IS the present moment.

This interpretation seems to be shared by the Gurdjieff teaching, Cassaro’s interpretation of the GodSelf imagery, and the artistic deconstruction done by the producers and other contributors to the Magical Egypt series — which is a study of an ancient science of Consciousness.

It is also known that before bringing his teaching back to Russia, Gurdjieff spent many years in Egypt working as a tour guide at Giza and apparently studying the ancient monuments and texts.

I believe that this also relates to some of my own work because I am so interested in the confluence of DNA code and computer software.

As I have noted here and in my recent book, the notion that there can be code, that can be edited, without Mind as its progenitor is contrary to all actual experience and empirical evidence.

Every other program that we know of is mind-based, as are we.

The key point here is that Mind is not “resident” only in the human brain. It may well be a natural force of nature and indeed the Reconciling or Third force known to the ancients.

Just as some cultures have numerous words for “love” or even “snow” depending upon their beliefs and connection to physical reality, so too may we need to broaden our concept of Mind to accommodate different “frequencies” — some of which may occur in nature beyond our current level of understanding.

For example, the Egyptian “deities” which we consider primitive were actual representatives of the various “intelligences” of Nature worshiped by Egyptians as part of Maat — the Natural Order — such as the floods that irrigated crops, wind, sandstorms, Sun and Moon and their radiant energy, and so on.

I also cover this in a book now available on Amazon.

Full Moon In Aries: Change & Renewal

Published

on

We are having a Full Moon in Aries which will be exact on October 13th at 9:08pm Universal Time. It will appear the fullest that night for the majority of the world, and on the night of the 12th for those in Hawaii.

This is the peak of the Lunar cycle which began two weeks prior with a New Moon in Libra. The energies of it build up as the Moon increases its light and are strongest in the days before and after. However, it will still be a part of the backdrop over the following two weeks.

Full Moon’s are a period in which we feel a push-pull between two opposing signs, in this case being the Moon in Aries and Sun in Libra. It can reflect either a conflict or integration of both signs.

We can feel this opposition happening individually within us and/or we can also experience it play out around us with some people (or circumstances) expressing the Libra side and others expressing the Aries side. In some cases, Full Moon’s can also reflect/trigger some sort of release or change.

Aries is a fire sign ruled by Mars. It is about individual needs, action, moving forward, pioneering, independence, self-identity, self-orientation, and leadership. It is bold, courageous, and instinctual, yet it can also be aggressive, impulsive, impatient, selfish, and hot-tempered.

Libra is an Air sign ruled by Venus. It is about relating, relationships, partnerships, codependency, consideration, harmony, balance, fairness, art, creativity, and beauty. It is sociable, diplomatic, and intellectual, yet it can also be indecisive, passive aggressive, vain, and even judgemental.

Full Moon Square Pluto and Trine Jupiter

The Full Moon is in a tight square with Pluto which is near Saturn and the South Node in Capricorn. This can trigger the energy of the previous Lunar Eclipse which had strong themes of purging, letting go, as well as the potential for rebirth and transformation. It may reflect things from the past that need to be resolved or concluded.

The area of life in which this may occur depends on how it was interacting with your natal chart. It could be connected to Capricorn themes such as ambitions, career, control, management, social status, financial areas or potential structures in our lives.

This can also reflect issues pertaining to fears, obsessions, compulsive behavior, shadows, dark drives, manipulation, desires, deeply repressed feelings, jealousy, the underworld, and destruction. Conflicts around power and power struggles may also play out which may be connected to Aries-Libra themes mentioned above. Pluto may increase the potential of intensity and Saturn can reflect obstacles.

Although this configuration can be challenging, this Full Moon is also in a trine with Jupiter in Sagittarius which brings some positive and hopeful energy to it as well. This aspect can be good for expansiveness, exploration, and learning. Themes around morals, faith, beliefs, and perspectives may be a part of the equation. It can be good for addressing issues by looking at the big picture and incorporating a higher understanding.

Mercury In Pre-Retrograde Shadow Period, Sextile Saturn, Pluto and Trine Neptune

Mercury in Scorpio will be going retrograde on October 31st and has begun its pre-retrograde shadow period on October 11th/12th. Some of the developments or thoughts that are occurring now and over the coming weeks will go through a process in November in which there could be adjustments, new realizations, and overall some sort of re-calibration to set things up for the following months or even beyond that. I will be writing a separate article on this retrograde, you can join my mailing list here to ensure that you receive it.

Mercury is in a sextile with Saturn in Capricorn which is strongest during the Full Moon and the following day. This is good for any type of mental effort and using our mind in a realistic, practical, tangible, or essential way. Communications with others can feel solidifying, productive, or have themes around responsibility and commitment.

Mercury is also in a trine with Neptune in Pisces which peaks on October 15th/16th. Our thoughts, communications, or activities can be idealistic, imaginative, inspired, spiritual, creative, compassionate, or sensitive. This can heighten intuition and we can be more tuned in to symbolism. It can also be good for doing anything involving visual media.

Mercury is in a sextile with Pluto in Capricorn which is strongest October 19th/20th. This can reflect wanting to understand or communicate things on a deeper level. We can be more focused, penetrating, strategic, persuasive, and compulsive. In some cases it can also be good for getting a point across to facilitate some sort of change,

Venus and Mars In Each Other’s Signs

Mars (the ruler of the Aries Full Moon) is in Libra which is ruled by Venus while Venus is in Scorpio which is traditionally ruled Mars. Generally these planets are considered to be challenged when in these signs on their own, however, in this case they are assisting each other in what is referred to as a ‘mutual reception’.

The midpoint of both Venus and Mars are aligned with the Sun/Moon opposition, as well as in aspect with Pluto. Considering all of this, it helps to alleviate any of the potential conflict between the Aries-Libra opposition and can also help to unify both sides of the polarity.

In the day prior to this Full Moon, Venus was in an opposition to Uranus which could have reflected some changes, insights, disruptions, or surprises around Venus ruled areas such as relationships, money, pleasures, or values. Following this, it is than moving towards a sextile to Saturn which peaks from October 19th-20th. This can bring a more stabilizing, mature, realistic, and supportive energy around relations or finances.

Things To Consider During This Period

How can you approach individual needs while also being considerate of others? What changes do you need to make to help you grow and expand? What is going on beneath the surface? Are any of the potential challenges happening in your life connected to something that you need to release or transform? How do you feel about everything when you take a step back and look at it from a higher perspective? What is the big picture and how can you incorporate your understandings to help you proceed or resolve any difficulties?

These are just some examples of what could come up during this period; however, there may be other variations of this energy playing out. If you wish to do any sort of intentional release connected to what has come up at this Full Moon, it is best to do so anytime after the peak when as wanes over the following two weeks. The exact moment of this Full Moon is on October 13th at 9:08pm Universal Time. You can click here to see what that is in your time zone.

New Moon In Libra: Relationship Healing & Growth

Published

on

We are having a New Moon in Libra on September 28th in most parts of the world and on the 29th in Eastern Asia. This is initiating a 29.5 day lunar cycle and a new wave of energy for the coming month; however, the astrological configurations mentioned in this article will be more prominent over the following two weeks. This cycle will include a Full Moon in Aries on October 13th/14th.

Libra season began on September 23rd, however, this New Moon activates its themes even more so and imprints it into the Lunar cycle. This period is good for working with and co-creating with its energies and themes.

As an Air sign, Libra is socially and mentally oriented. Ruled by Venus, it is associated with relating, relationships, harmony, art, creativity, and beauty. There is a big focus on others. Libra is also diplomatic as it seeks to find balance, equality, fairness, and common ground.

Negatively, Libra can be overly codependent, passive aggressive, superficial, insincere,  indecisive, vain, and judgemental. Although this sign is about politeness and harmony, retaliation can be triggered when imbalance and unfairness is perceived. Libra is also associated with people-pleasing which can have either positive or negative implications.

New Moon Opposite Chiron and Quincunx Uranus

This New Moon is opposing Chiron in Aries which is currently retrograde. Generally, this Lunar cycle can be a time in which old wounds, blockages, and traumas may come up. They can get triggered through external circumstances and/or we may also be contemplating them internally. This can also be a time in which we can be proactive in addressing what’s getting in our own way to help bring more wholeness.

Considering that it is occurring in the Aries-Libra axis, for many people it can be connected to wounds around self identity, self needs, sense of self, independence, lack of confidence/courage, inconsiderateness, selfishness, and how this plays out in our relations.

This New Moon is also in a quincunx with Uranus in Taurus. This can reflect surprises, disruptions, sudden changes, accidents, breakdowns, separations, rebellion, or losses that can be an annoyance and may require adjustments. This energy is strongest on the day of the New Moon.

Venus Sextile Jupiter, Quincunx Neptune, Square Pluto

Venus, the ruler of this New Moon, is also in its own sign of Libra while making a sextile with Jupiter in its sign of Sagittarius. This can be an expansive and optimistic period socially, in partnerships, aesthetically, and even financially for some people.

Our relations can be a source of learning and growth. Social interactions may be based around beliefs. This can be a fun energy however, we can also be excessive when it comes to pleasures. This energy is strongest on the day of the New Moon but will still reflect the entire Lunar cycle.

Venus is also separating from a quincunx with Neptune in Pisces. In combination with the mostly positive Venus-Jupiter energies mentioned above, this can also reflect some confusion around relationship or financial matters. This may also play out as challenges or frustrations connected to escapism, elusiveness, intoxication, deception, or delusion. However, with this aspect separating, it is stronger in the lead up to the New Moon and dwindling following it.

Venus also makes a square to Pluto which is strongest from September 30th-October 1st. At best, this can reflect passion, depth, and positive changes in our relations, romantically, or creatively. It can also be good for making some sort of aesthetic makeover, or purging items no longer needed. However, this can also play out as intensity, power struggles, or other types of conflicts.

Saturn’s Final Conjunction To The South Node, Pluto Going Direct

Saturn recently ended its retrograde on September 18th and has been in its final conjunction with the South Node since then and into the week following this New Moon. This energy was also strong in mid Spring (when it began) and in early Summer.

Ultimately this is about endings pertaining to issues, behaviors, commitments, responsibilities, or other things connected to your past that are no longer serving you. It could have to do with career, ambitions, social status, structures, boundaries, limitations, management, or even a financial framework.

For some people, it’s possible that you may have got pulled into something this past spring that is connected to some aspect of your life (or behavior)  that needs to be released. If that applies to you, then it is likely you are now experiencing the conclusion of this process that you needed to experience.

Pluto is slowing down to end its retrograde and begin moving forward again on October 3rd. Now and over the coming weeks, its energies will be strong. Pluto is associated with power, regeneration, purging, sex, transformation, desires, jealousy, underworld, manipulation, hidden matters, secrets, obsessions, compulsiveness, intensity, repressed feelings, taboos, and subversion.

During this time we can also experience a conclusion to a Pluto process that began in April and may also be connected to the Saturn-South Node themes (mentioned above) which were initiated around the same time.

Making Intentions and Things To Consider

What can you do to improve your relations with others? Is this a good time to expand your social network? Are there any wounds, blocks, traumas, or hurts that are getting in the way of achieving harmony in relationships? Is there any part of your life that requires more balance or fairness? Is there something that you want to improve aesthetically? What part of your life is calling for some sort of ending and perhaps even empowerment?

These are just some examples of what to consider or focus your intentions on at this time; however, it is good to reflect on anything else that is coming up for you. It is generally best to make any intentions within the first 24 hours following a New Moon. The exact moment of it will be occurring at 6:26pm Universal Time on September 28th.  You can click here to see what that is in your time zone.

Lucifer Revisited: The Testimony Of Eracidni Murev Te (Part 1)

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Interesting testimony from an insider who claims to belong to a group that serves as a 'counterbalance' to the incarnated Lucifer soul group on this planet recently appeared in the 'Godlike Productions' Forum.

  • Reflect On:

    Are we willing to stretch our paradigm of reality in order to consider testimony that purports to present deeper truths about how the world and the universe work?

The 7-part Lucifer Series I wrote last summer for CE, based on the testimony of an alleged bloodline family insider, has garnered vastly more reader emails than any other article I have written. This speaks to a great interest on the part of our readers in the discussion of the metaphysical and spiritual underpinnings of our life here on Earth, of the nature of Good and Evil.

As such, I am taking the opportunity here to continue this conversation by diving into the testimony of another alleged insider who claims to be part of an esoteric group that provides a ‘counterbalance’ to the activities of the individuated Lucifer Group Soul on the planet. This individual, who uses the handle Eracidni Murev Te (trans: ‘to share in truth’), is saying that he represents an incarnated group on the ‘positive’ side that serves to keep the ‘negative’ Lucifer group in check, although this individual is careful to use such dualities as positive/negative, good/evil and dark/light in the relative sense rather than in an absolute sense.

I highly recommend reading my Lucifer Series before embarking on this testimony, simply because I will not be fully repeating the context created there within this series.

Is This Source Credible?

Whether or not this individual is who he says he is should be an important question for any discerning mind. It is not the only factor in determining the value of his testimony, but we should look carefully at the credibility and self-consistency of what he says in order to determine if we believe he has direct access to what he speaks about or is simply someone well-versed in esoteric and occult knowledge based on his careful reading of his own recommended book list (The Kybalion, the Emerald Tablets, the Dao, and the Law of One / Ra material).

If you have read the Lucifer series you will recall that the individual that posted answers to questions on the ‘Above Top Secret’ forum in October 2008 went by the moniker ‘Hidden-Hand’ and claimed to be a generational member of one of the ruling bloodline families. His explanation for why he, being part of the covert dark side, would have any reason or motivation to speak the truth of what is going on, is as follows:

Every so often, as per the directives of the Law of our Creator, a brief window of opportunity opens, whereby a select handful of our Family are required to make communication with our subjects, and offer you the chance to ask us any questions you would like answered.

advertisement - learn more

Our new source Eracidni Murev Te (who I will refer to as EMT) started posting on the ‘Godlike Productions’ Forum in December 2018 and had a similar if not more convoluted reasoning for coming out to share profound hidden truths with us:

Every so often, the opportunity arises for our counterbalance to share with the world certain aspects of being and how our world is run that traditionally have been hidden. They are obligated to use this opportunity to do so by Fundamental Law and a compromise made long ago – with us.

Recently, our counterbalance informed us the “Karmic” cost of the last diffusion was greater than anticipated and declined to participate this year. We agreed to accept responsibility in their place for the time being.

We are a much smaller and much less politically-positioned group tasked with, well, record keeping. However, the nature of our tasks puts us in a unique position to fulfill the duty of our counterpart.

As such, I am here to share that which the questions allow.

My first impression from reading this was that it was a gimmick being used by the writer to insert himself into the story of the ruling bloodlines by casting himself and his (much smaller) group as a ‘counterbalance’ to the activities of the Lucifer Group Soul–something that I don’t recall reading anything about in the Hidden-Hand material.

That said, it’s worth suspending disbelief long enough to properly analyze the entire set of threads to see if the wisdom is consistently laced with that other-worldly quality about it. As truth-seekers we should leave no stone unturned, and of great interest to me is to see if there are some new and profound insights brought in through this testimony.

Fundamental Law

EMT made it a point to reference ‘Fundamental Law’ in his introduction before answering any questions:

If you ask a question in accordance with Fundamental Law, I will answer. If your question is not in accordance with Fundamental Law, I will say so and answer as much as your question permits. I will not provide false answers to any question.

In the initial Q/A that came from a forum participant, we can get more insight into what this ‘Fundamental Law’ refers to:

Q: Why now?

EMT: Recently, we all have “leveled-up,” so to speak. When this happens, it is sometimes necessary to provide wisdom and information about the new modalities of being available to “individuals” so that the transition happens smoothly. It happens to be that the last several times this has happened diffusion was deemed appropriate.

Q: How long until 5D?

EMT: This both is and isn’t up to you and everyone else. I cannot fully answer this question because doing so would violate Fundamental Law.

Q: What can I do?

EMT: That depends on what you intend reality to be.

It seems as though ‘Fundamental Law’ here refers to human free will, and the conditions by which EMT is able to answer questions will be contingent on the answer not impinging on individual free will. In the second question above, being asked to predict when humanity will ascend to 5D (Fifth Density, a higher plane of existence than we are currently in) might negatively impact choices people will make individually going forward in their endeavor to grow spiritually. If he says that moving to 5D is preordained to occur on a certain date, for example, it might prevent people from doing the sometimes arduous personal work that is necessary for their personal evolution.

The ‘Law of One‘, material channeled from an entity called ‘Ra’ and regarded by some as one of the best sources of esoteric and spiritual truth, is a very good reference for this discussion. It identifies free will, or finity, or the limit of the viewpoint, as the ‘first distortion’ (13.1215.2199.5). The created universe that we experience is the Creator’s exploration of Itself through the first distortion, which Ra also calls the Law of Confusion (27.10). In other words, free will is a distortion of Unity/Oneness, which is ultimate reality, and has been manufactured into our reality through limiting our perception of the One. This does not make it ‘false’ as such, just limited to certain realms of existence, and extremely valuable in helping to foster a whole range of important experiences that are available to us as individuated human beings.

The fact that EMT has promised to be truthful but also respectful of individual free will is a good starting point for our deeper exploration of his content, and certainly in accord with the testimony of ‘Hidden-Hand’ that I wrote about previously. Going forward, let’s suspend disbelief until we have a firm handle on what Eracidni Murev Te has to tell us.

The Takeaway

Grasping the esoteric truths that underpin our experience here on Earth is not necessary for many of us to fulfill our purpose here at this time. But for those with inquiring minds into these matters, such knowledge may be exactly what triggers us to make meaningful changes in our lives. If you have read up to this point and will continue to explore with me as this series moves forward, then you are likely such a person.
