There is a famous Biblical mandala near Solomon’s Temple that contains a vital message for those who have been to school:

2 Chronicles 4:2King James Version (KJV)

2 Also he made a molten sea of ten cubits from brim to brim, round in compass, and five cubits the height thereof; and a line of thirty cubits did compass it round about.

Why is it that Solomon, the wisest of the wise does not seem to know the irrational number Pi? This unexpectedly bad mental reasoning is an old doorway into any material that we would call, Wisdom. It is just here that a mandala teaching shows its worth.

There is a definition of the seat of the soul from Novalis:

The seat of the soul is where the inner world and the outer world meet.
Where they overlap, it is in every point of the overlap.

The geometry of a circle is hidden in this saying — where the inner and the outer worlds meet – the ratio of a circle’s circumference (round about) to its diameter, (from brim to brim) = Pi. That relationship cannot be contained and unfolds unto the infinite.

In 2010, the two-quadrillionth digit was calcuated. There remains no sign of a stopping point.

This is a clue for how to proceed when taking up any study of soul whether it be psychology or spirituality or philosophy. All our language for:

how the inner and the outer meet is to be held lightly, must always be metaphor, lest what we are doing become a molten sea – water fit for no living creature that destroys life.

This is a time-honored way to tell people to not take the Bible/Sacred Texts literally and get hegemonic about it.

Soul is always connected to the irrational, non-rational – emotional, physical, spiritual, more whole than just mental.

And there is more to this line of reasoning. In Novalis’ words, Where they overlap, it is in every point of the overlap, listen with the ears for the radius that is the union of the intimate within and the encompassing edge around. Here in it how human consciousness is two-fold, at once completely subjective and within while at the same time completely objective, encompassing all that is:

CIRCLE_1.svg

Soul, too, is the the infinite radii that hold together the center and the whole.

Archetypal ecology borrows heavily from James Hillman’s and Robert Sardello’s work. That said, soul, the place where inner and outer worlds is defined as:

First, “soul” refers to the deepening of events into experiences; second, the significance soul makes possible whether in love, in receptivity, in creativity, initiation or in religious concern, derives from its special relation with death, with birth and with re-birth. And third, by “soul” I mean the imaginative possibilities in our collective and personal natures, the experiencing through reflective speculation, intuition, dream, image, fantasy, co-creation (co-poesis), and initiation – that mode that recognizes all realities as relational, primarily symbolic or metaphorical and in service to the relationships by which the past and present are honored and through which the future is brought forth.

The word, humility, is derived from Earth:

humility (n.) (online etymology dictionary)
early 14c., “quality of being humble,” from Old French umelite “humility, modesty, sweetness” (Modern French humilité), from Latin humilitatem (nominative humilitas) “lowness, small stature; insignificance; baseness, littleness of mind,” in Church Latin “meekness,” from humilis “lowly, humble,” literally “on the ground,” from humus “earth,” from PIE root *dhghem- “earth.” In the Mercian hymns, Latin humilitatem is glossed by Old English eaðmodnisse.

I wrote in Remembrance:

The song, “Silent Night,” was the trigger of peace all along the Front so long ago. As I walked on December 24, 2014, I saw how the hope expressed in the song was like a prayer that had been answered. It shone forth in the healed fields and restored nature around me. It had all come true. I stood in the radiant stillness of the night sky resonating with the words of that peacemakers’ song. It seemed so evident.

For 4.3 billion years now, Earth has been Our Mother, the source and teacher of life. Imagined as Grandmother, she has modeled all the cherished virtues of humanity: integrity, generosity, wisdom, love, creativity, authenticity, healing, harmony, truth…no single human faith or ideology has any claim, text or ritual that entitles its followers to privilege. The virtues, like the Earth that spread before me, are possessed by no one – our entire planet belongs to all, not just human beings, all living beings – in that sense, I had the insight that the starting point for peace on Earth returns again each year with the announcement that, all Creation is no man’s land.

How could the soldiers not sing together that night?

The invitation to come together in No man’s land came most often from the German trenches:

Stille Nacht, heilige Nacht,
Alles schläft; einsam wacht….

The German words offer another layer of meaning:

Silent Night, Holy Night,
All is calm; alone and awake.

…the starting point for peace on Earth returns again each year with the announcement that, all Creation is no man’s land.

HUMBLE AS WATER = THE TAO

In our times, living on a planet requires us to know more geometry than the geometry of the circle. We need the geometry of a sphere. The same humility expressed in Solomon’s molten sea about a circle is even more necessary in our culture where we live on a turning sphere of Earth protected by our atmosphere.

moons-far-side

The same infinite spaciousness found in the ratio where the inner and outer worlds meet is exponentially increased, if that is possible, by an increase in dimensionality. There are infinite points present on the arc of a sphere – this is the geometry of the authority and importance of every individual, all life forms, all that is – all points of view — all Voices – are required for the wholeness of our sphere, our planet, to be healthy.

In this we can recover the Earth’s place in our Christmas Story and remember how the Peace on Earth described in the story was never missing. The story is about how human beings are to restore a proper relationship with that same Peace – a Peace that is found in the center of our hearts – the Place of Creator, according to those who follow the Earth-centered ways.

The Joy of Christmas is that human beings share in the unexpected birth of the Harmony of Earths.


CHRIST PATTERN

In his book, Pipe and Christ, Fr. John Stolzman wrote that he kept asking the shamans if the Lakota Spirits knew Christ.

pipechrist

They kept telling him to ask the Lakota Spirits himself! When he did, they replied,

Mahpiya ekta na maka sitomni.

which means, roughly, “Through the heavens (cloud) and throughout the Earth (Maka = Mother).

Stolzman interpreted the answer with prejudice because he had trouble putting the Lakota Spirits on the same footing as his own Holy Spirit. However, the answer he received is worth further consideration as an indication of how an already existing tradition integrated the Christ archetype. The Lakota Spirits, as in many traditions, integrated the archetype of the Christ, even as they remained Lakota Spirits.

midwinter

In his book, Midwinter Rites of the Cuyuga Long House, Frank G. Speck noted:

The Upper Pantheon, including the Creator and the Four Angels, has undergone modification from the original because of the teachings of the revealer, Handsome Lake, at the close of the 18th century. The original Cuyuga desgnation for the Supreme Being was Hawni-yu , “Controller”, but Handsome Lake was told by the angels to instruct the people to substitute the title, Sogweadr-so, “Creator of All”, when calling upon the Deity in prayer or in thanksgiving. The reason was given, as a myth relates, that the Evil Spirit laid claim to being the “Controller” of the earth and its people and accordingly responded when the original term was used. The Creator (Great Spirit), through Handsome Lake, then condemned the original term and substituted the one which applies to Him (Great Spirit) alone. Handsome Lake furthermore taught that after his death he would abide next to the Creator….

The concept of the Four Angels also needs some explanation, having been modified from the earlier belief of the Cuyuga. The teaching brings out the understanding that the Four Angels are connected with the old concept of the Four Winds, The North, East, South and West, controlling the universe. Handsome Lake was spiritually led and instructed by the angels and taught that the identity of the Fourth Angel was that of Christ. In the narration “The Fatherless Boy”, the identity of Christ is accounted for. Christ is accordingly called, Gehadot’ha, The Fourth One, the other three being referred to collectively as given above. (p. 31)

I think this is very important information for Christians. This is because it appears that the message was never meant to be a weapon for the foundation of a new religious empire. The mystery was never – never ever, intended to to wipe out all other traditions – Our Christmas contains a message of Love that is recognized and integrated into sacred ways of the planet. The message of no man’s land was one of the Mother and, dare I say, a Father of the atmosphere of Peace — born of a planet that is protected by and animated by that atmosphere. Air is life.

If astrology represents the sum of all the psychological knowledge of antiquity then the recovery of the logical development of Christianity out of Hellenistic Greek culture becomes accessible. Christos is how the Greeks integrated the archetype that honors the divinity and sovereignty of the individual soul into their sacred ways. Christos is the Greek Mahpiya ekta na maka sitomni, the Greek Gehadot’ha, the Greek “Fourth One through the heavens (cloud) and throughout the Earth (Maka = Mother)” native to the ways of the West.

So does Dara Malloy in his 2009 book, The Globalisation of God: Celtic Christianity’s Nemesis In both cases, there is a process of transforming Jesus into an invincible God-man that enabled globalization and colonization of the planet.

The living connection to Christianity as a development out of the West can be teased out through David Fideler’s book, Jesus Christ, Sun of God. He demonstrated how the message of Jesus and Mary Magdelene was integrated into the inherited Greek, Egyptian and Hebrew traditions. Fideler reminded us how the New Testament is mostly in Greek and that Christianity is essentially a Greek mystery religion.

Through the use of Gematria, sacred writing in which letters are also numbers, (most probably learned from the Hebrew tradition) scholars had to use what is essentially a mis-spelling of the name Jesus, who in his own language was Yeshua or Joshua. They did that so that the name could be included in the numbers associated with the celestial archetype of the sun.

Buried under layers of intercultural trauma you can find a series of magic squares that were associated with the patterns of the celestial powers: sun, moon, mercury, mars, venus, jupiter, saturn, and stars. How they were developed and received is lost to time. As archetypes, they can be understood as examples of Western cultural understanding of the root patterns of meaning. The symbolism of the magic squares was used to create the dimensions of temples, art, amulets, prayers and songs. The numbers associated with the divinities were imagined as a way to have architecture and life resonate with the divinity in question – as a means to invite powers in the sky down to Earth and to anchor them.

Why would the name, Jesus, be associated with the celestial archetype of the sun? Here are solar numbers derived from its magic square:

37, 74, 111, 222, 333, 444, 555, 666, 777, 888,

1480 = Christ

2368 = Jesus Christ

Fideler was silent as regarding how the information concerning the sun in Sun of God was fundamental to astrology. The literate Greeks who wrote books of the New Testament would have had some knowledge of that ancient tradition, especially those who made “number puns” in gematria. In a person’s birth chart, the sun represents the identity, the self, the character or life-vehicle of the individual soul in question. The evolution in collective human consciousness indicates that there has always been an un-known hidden and original potential within each human born. Each human who has ever been born is a potential Christos. Christianity was intended to help persons learn and flourish with this awareness. It was also intended as a way to know other Christs found in the cultures of the world. It is also a message about the innate sacredness of all that lives, all that is in our cosmos has never been and never will be again.

yokoYoko Ono’s Birth Chart

As I wrote above, Christos was not as much a power to be praised as an all-powerful God, but a sacred compassionate, merciful person to be when you are truly yourself. Participate and Be a Christ. In the same way all the planets are in the birth-chart, so the Gods and Goddesses are in each person – Ye are Gods.

yesterday'ssky

There is an idea concerning the sacredness of individual identity as expressed in a birth chart that comes from evolutionary astrologer, Steven Forrest:

The sun is the secret of sanity.
The moon is the secret of happiness.

As an evolutionary astrologer, he is referring both to true Identity (sun’s secret) as well as the relational, evolutionary soul-freedom of psychological awareness and relationships (moon’s secret) that nourish and are nourished by that knowing.

This same idea appeared recently once again in Rupert Sander’s film, Ghost in the Shell.

Aramaki

reminds Major that she is not a weapon, but a sacred being:

You are more than a weapon.
You have a soul, a ghost.
When we see our uniqueness as a virtue,
only then do we find peace.

Here’s Rumi expressing this same kind of fully flourishing human awareness:

A gnostic says little, but inside he is full of mysteries,
and crowded with voices. Whoever is served
that cup keeps quiet…

…He has so completely dissolved
his ego, nothinged himself, that what he says
is like God talking to God.

All human beings are capable of this awareness, though for some it comes easier and for some it comes harder. There is no honest way to measure which is which. The Gift of individuality that comes from all these centuries of patriarchy is this fundamental worthiness of each human being, regardless of class, caste, nationality, faith, gender.

The burden on Western persons seems more to do with how we regard others than has to do with claims about ourselves. There are persons all over the planet who ‘nothing’ themselves, as Rumi wrote, not in a sense of annihilation, but in wholeness and original being. In mythic and ritual thought, to eat and digest is to become.

Perhaps this is why the Eucharist is eaten in the Christian mythology. The message is not to worship the All-Powerful Jesus Christ. The message is:

Become a Gehadot’ha yourself. The lowly manger, neglected by the many is the human identity. The unexpected birth-place for peace among millions is No Man’s Land, that contested land between Church, King, Nation-State, Multinational Corporation. Secreted away within each character is a new and unforeseen Fourth One , that Fatherless Child who also goes by our own name.

No Possessive Controller within you or anywhere at anytime or anyplace has the right to over-ride the inherent Worthiness of the hidden Wisdom in which you participate. I think this is why Jesus is quoted as saying, If you bring forth what is within you, what is within you will save you. If you do not bring forth what is within you, what is within you will destroy you.

THE WORLD TO COME

The full awareness of this kind of “I am” requires a living Dream of the People, a cultural depth psychology I am calling archeytpal ecology – an awareness of the unconscious that includes our planet as Gaia is an archetype of archetypes, which includes celestial woman and celestial man.

Integrating the Christian message into the West requires an archetypal ecology that humbles (Earths) the Christian notion of the world to come by founding the concept upon the lived and observable experience of living on a planet that is in orbit. – The world to come is expressed in the revolutionary state of the globe orbiting a moving, orbiting sun. Yes, our lives are a marriage of Eternity with Space-time through which the evolutionary journey of life – that Beauty, is sustained. There is also for us now the expectation of a great becoming.


UNIQUE AND COMPLEX MESSIAHS

We are planetary beings of immense endurance of biology and consciousness. We are called to deeper rooted-ness and delight in being that is a gift for which all that has lived before bequeathed us. We are uniquely called to the cultivation of the sense of Self. By this, I mean as sense of the wholeness that guides our being. In Christian mythology, this is a passage through the Messiah complex into an awareness that resonates with the compassion Earth has towards human beings – all beings are unique and complex Messiahs working together through our collective cultural Messiah complexes.

Solomon’s molten sea appeared in C. G. Jung’s concern about the individual becoming possessed by the collective psychic shadow.

Jung called the greatest danger affecting human beings and the planet — psychic epidemics. He warned:

–and these epidemics are infinitely more devastating than the words catastrophes of Nature! The supreme danger which menaces both the individual and the populace as a whole is psychic danger. With regard to this, our understanding proves to be quite powerless, which is explained by the fact that rational arguments act on the conscious — but on the conscious alone — without having the least effect on the unconscious. Consequently, a major danger for man emanates from the mass, i.e. the crowd, at whose core the working of the unconscious accumulates — first muzzling, then stifling the pleas for reason on the part of the conscious. Every organization of a crowd constitutes a latent danger, like that of piling up dynamite. Because it produces effects that no one wanted and that no one is able to hold in check.

redbook

For this reason, one must ardently hope that psychology — knowledge of psychology and achievements in the domain of psychology — will spread on such a scale that human beings will finally understand the source of supreme danger hanging over their heads. It is not be arming themselves to the teeth, every country of itself, that nations will be able, in the long run, to preserve themselves from the terrible catastrophes occasioned by modern war. Accumulated weapons demand war! On the contrary, would it not be preferable, in future, to guard against and to avoid the conditions delineated at present — in which the unconscious breaks down the dams of the conscious and dispossesses the later, making the world run the risk of inestimable devastation? [pp. 404-403 in L’homme a la decouvert de son ame, 1944]

There is medicine in this, also a warning. Jung wrote:

Resistance to the organized mass can be effected only by the man who is
as well organized in his individuality as the mass itself.

Watch the clip below:

What Our Lady Galadriel is doing can be imagined as an example of a person who resists the powers of the organized mass because she is as well organized, perhaps even more organized in her own individuality as the mass itself. Turn the sound off and watch her portrayal to note the behavior. Then, watch persons who are followers of someone who they consider a Great Leader.

There are versions of the love story of Rumi and Shams where it was Rumi’s own followers who murdered Shams out of jealousy. I’ve felt this same kind of internal jealousy myself on three sides of it; as the jealous person, as the person who is the target of jealous members of a group following a leader, and within my own circles of students where, sadly, my own students would infight with jealousy.

There are persons who become the lightning rods and channel the voice of their People. It is a prophetic person who has a big heart that can hold everyone. While this person can be Beloved of all, in the event of a sequence of triggering events, the same individual can become a tyrant or establish a fascism of personality.

David Koresh was a most recent version of this American Tragic Tale. The continent is littered with Chosen men and women who were unconscious of their own inner and personal deep state.

BRANCH DAVIDIAN COMPOUNDBranch Davidian Compound, outside Waco, Texas.

We keep forgetting that the tyrants of the 20th century were often beloved of their people during their rise to power.

Even after having spent time with this One Power, the cultural carrier of it never quite gets over it. Here, again from Lord of the Rings, is the character Bilbo who is still possessed by this collective Self:

Europe too, is littered with tragic redeemers and their people, the planet, really. To be Self-possessed as a leader of Self-possessed followers is a human complex, a Messiah Complex, which when not ritually contained takes on the guise of an institutionalized Military-Industrial Complex, something you can observe in the character Darth Vader and his Empire. His name was a hint that this is the dark side of the Father, I’ve heard George Lucas say in interviews.

Mao’s leadership in the Four Pests Campaign, where he encouraged his people to kill all sparrows by any means necessary, created an imbalance in his country’s ecosystem. Without the sparrows to hold them in check, locusts and other insects devoured the nation’s fields. Numbers vary, and there is also denial about this event, but Chinese citizens in the millions starved to death.

James Hillman famously warned about the dangers of monotheism and the literalization of the Self that he described as Titanism.

Hillman warned:

For to be about the Self is not to be about the Gods. I would not encourage Titanism, a menace far greather than Narcissism, which presents only a pensive pretty-boy compared with the grandiosity of Self.

If language has been cut loose from the signified object of its discourse (as contemporary philosophy asserts) and if the use of a term does not refer to a thing, there are no clear references to fixed identities. Then, the term, “Self”, doesn’t refer either. Nor is there even the comfort of self-identity. The “me” is anchored elsewhere, floatingly, and that’s what keeps the ship from foundering. Consequently, if there be no literal self, there can be no self-improvement or self-knowledge (only improvement and knowledge as such) and all self-revelation merely adds to the culture’s delusions of psychological grandeur rather than to the culture itself.

Yet, simply by pronouncing the term we are seized by the inflating belief that there is such a thing, a Self, which transcends any limitations that might be imposed upon it. And so it can never really be “wrong.” Self can be defined only from within itself by its own representations. Principal among these are the irrefutable truth of personal experience and the inflating feelings of personal significance. Utterly self-referent, it knows no God greater than itself. Now, most psychology takes this quite literally, so that behind psychology’s devotion to the personal stands neither humanism nor individualism, but rather a literalism of Self like a non-existant God absolutely believed in. Absolute belief is either fundamentalism, delusion, or literalism — or all of the Above. Perhaps, it’s then right to say there is no greater literalism in psychology than its idea of Self, a literalism that converts our supposedly investigative field into a branch of mystic fundamentalism. This leads me further to think that our culture’s omnipotent and omniscient Godhead who supposedly replaced the mutually limiting pagan beings of myth is non other than a Titan returned from Tartaros to a too high place, and worse, all alone.

He could not be more direct about the warnings inherent in calling the archetype of the sun a potential Beast. So, it is not a surprise that the number 666 would be connected to identity, one that warns of narcissism or the dangers of becoming like a molten sea encased in prestige and power.

sun

In Herman Melville’s Moby Dick, it’s possible to see this kind of rage enacted in the character of Ahab. Ishmael described one possessed by the cursing ungodly God:

All that most maddens and torments; all that stirs up the lees of things; all truth with malice in it; all that cracks the sinews and cakes the brain; all the subtle demonisms of life and thought; all evil, to crazy Ahab, were visibly personified, and made practically assailable in Moby Dick. He piled upon the whale’s white hump the sum of all the general rage and hate felt by his whole race from Adam down; and then, as if his chest had been a mortar, he burst his hot heart’s shell upon it.

SOUL OF DIGNITY AND WORTHINESS

We can borrow a page from Handsome Lake’s message about the proper name of Creator. The Seneca-6 Nations’ wisdom of avoiding the name, The Controller, and choosing to address instead, Creator of All. It’s important to be able to discern between a way of service based on The Controller versus a way of relationship based on The Creator of All.

A single heart’s intelligence can realize or recollect that there is an immensely more ancient, enduring galactic heart intelligence that has been invisibly guiding and supporting – Mahpiya Ekta Na Maka Sitomni – There is an immense new gravitational solidity to the individual heart, the geometric wisdom of the sphere, and when awakened, it is no longer quite so easily silenced or influenced. This was a fundamental message of C.G. Jung’s 1958 (!) book, The Undiscovered Self.

I wrote earlier:

We are planetary beings of immense endurance of biology and consciousness. We are called to deeper rooted-ness and delight in being that is a gift for which all that has lived before bequeathed us. We are uniquely called to the cultivation of the sense of Self. By this, I mean as sense of the wholeness that guides our being. In Christian mythology, this is a passage through the Messiah complex into an awareness that resonates with the compassion Earth has towards human beings – all beings are unique and complex Messiahs working together through our collective cultural Messiah complexes.

Jiddu-KrishnamurtiKrishnamurti and Annie Besant

Krishnamurti, proclaimed by Annie Besant to be the the World Teacher, famously refused to take the bait of becoming the Chosen One for the Theosophic Society. Rudolf Steiner was kicked out of the Society in response to his refusal to accept that Krishnamurti was the World Teacher or Maitreya. The movement lost many followers once Krishnamurti refused the bait.

As Americans, in fact, is it not a Messiah complex that is at the heart of our own cultural mythology? As cultural artifacts like the painting, The Apotheosis of Washington, show our Empire of Liberty, as Jefferson was fond of saying, has not been immune to its own Self-possession. There was plenty of enthusiasm for making Washington the first King of America.

washingtonpwashingtong

Though he did not become King George the 1st of America, he did become the first American God. The above images may offer an insight into some shadow work to be done in American Democracy. For Washington to be our first God unfortunately saddled democracy with Democratism. Democracy is much more difficult and requires citizens who have the inner organization to resist the masses who can avoid becoming possessed by the shadow of the Great Redeemer. I think Woodrow Wilson offers a sad case of this tragic tale of democracy turned Democratism.

George Washington was asked and refused numerous times to become King of America. When he stepped out of power he said:

…having now finished the work assigned me, I retire from
the great theatre of Action; and bidding an Affectionate
farewell to this August body under whose orders I have so
long acted, I here offer my Commission, and take my leave
of all the employments of public life.

There is a European who seems to have managed to refuse the apotheosis Kool Aid in the person of Sabbatai Zevi. We of European ancestry have buried intergenerational trauma as regards the 17th century and the end-times energy that was associated with the date 1666.

zevi

It’s not a question that is settled, but at the height of his historical moment, Zevi converted to Islam. (Personally, I think he pulled a Krishnamurti and stepped down from the temptation.) When he was Self-possessed Zevi allowed this to be written about himSelf.

“The first-begotten Son of God, Shabbethai Tebi, Messiah and
Redeemer of the people of Israel, to all the sons of Israel,
Peace! Since ye have been deemed worthy to behold the great
day and the fulfillment of God’s word by the Prophets, your
lament and sorrow must be changed into joy, and your fasting
into merriment; for ye shall weep no more. Rejoice with song
and melody, and change the day formerly spent in sadness and
sorrow into a day of jubilee, because I have appeared.

I’m hoping that these were not his own words, but words someone else put into his mouth.

There was a tragic turn of the mythology in the midst the Renaissance. Savonarola, whipped Florentines into such a frenzy that they burned their own cultural beauty in Bonfires of the Vanities. Even Botticelli burned a copy of his masterpiece, Spring, it is said.

saraspring

As Westerners with a vast historical record before us, when you look at persons who chose the path of being human beings instead of God-men and God-women, when you look at the tragic fates of those God-men, God-women and their followers, who have walked the stage of the world, it’s probably a safe bet to imagine that Yeshua of Nazareth did this same thing. I’m willing to wager that such a person whether a character who really lived or a mythic person would have passed through the psychological gate described by Jung:

Resistance to the organized mass can be effected only by the man who is
as well organized in his individuality as the mass itself.

THE VACCINE

tetraflip

Based on all the problems caused through humanity’s eras of psychic epidemic states, it would be wise to consider that the oft-quoted words from Jesus in John 16:33,

These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace.
In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer;
I have overcome the world.

are only half of the whole Christian mythology. For how can we discern what world that was overcome? Was this a reference to the inner psychological world or is he saying he has become the most powerful God-man over the world? It would be good to know that Jesus was also able to listen to friends and get over himSelf. So, the text would continue just a bit:

And know that any trouble I might cause you,
don’t worry too much. I have gotten over mySelf.

The rest of the story opens up when you study how joyful are those who have stepped away from or moved through the temptation of being the Savior or the Followers of one who is going to fix everything for everyone. They were able to keep a sense of humor and humanity about themselves.

I promise, I will try not to be an asshole.

is the second half of the teaching, to be blunt and brief.

So, the whole text, really, was:

These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace.
In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer;
I have overcome the world.

And know that any trouble I might cause you,
don’t worry too much because I have gotten over mySelf.
I promise, I will try not to be an asshole.

Without this knowledge, millions of human beings end up sacrificing themselves for the Great One thinking they are doing good. The Father that can’t get over himSelf is a Madman who speaks in a gentle fatherly voice. There is an example of this in Joyeux Noel, when the Bishop prays with the soldiers about to go to the Western Front. He sound grandfatherly, gentle and wise, but he is out of his mind.

Here is Harry Potter saying the same thing about having the courage to not be an asshole when he breaks the Elder Wand:

Our cultural goal at this time is to become aware that we are simple, sacred human beings who have always been living supported within our Mother, breathed into and alive within an atmosphere (Invisible Father) that literally ‘holds space’ for us, as in, taking into its own “body” the harmful effects of cosmic radiation so that life can flourish. We live in a solar family system. Our more enduring family system of Earth, Moon and Sun. In our family we live lifetimes measured in galactic years – A galactic year is 226 million Earth years.

We are planetary beings of immense endurance of biology and consciousness. We are called to deeper rooted-ness and delight in being that is a gift for which all that has lived before bequeathed us. We are uniquely called to awaken together in the dream and consciously participate in the cultivation of soul on behalf of the whole.

Soul refers to the deepening of events into experiences. The significance soul makes possible whether in love, in receptivity, in creativity, initiation or in religious concern, derives from its special relation with death, with conception and birth and with re-birth. Soul means the imaginative possibilities in our collective and personal natures, the experiencing through reflective speculation, intuition, dream, image, fantasy, co-creation (co-poesis), and initiation – that mode that recognizes all realities as relational, primarily symbolic or metaphorical and in service to the relationships by which the past and present are honored and through which the future is brought forth.

In my own mission statement, cultivation of soul is singing the Dream of Earth forward.

In Christian mythology of the West this is a passage through the Messiah complex into an awareness that resonates with the compassion Earth has towards human beings – all beings are unique and complex Messiahs, born at the right place, at the right time, in the right season of the year, of the life, and of the culture.

EMERALD TABLET RECOVERED

When we recover the Christ in our own cultural ways, then an additional gift that comes back to us was once called the operation of the sun. It is central to the Hermetic tradition. The operation appears on the Emerald Tablet.

Emerald_tablets-1

This is Issac Newton’s translation, circa 1680.


1) Tis true without lying, certain & most true.
2) That wch is below is like that wch is above & that wch is above is like yt wch is below to do ye miracles of one only thing.
3) And as all things have been & arose from one by ye mediation of one: so all things have their birth from this one thing by adaptation.
4) The Sun is its father, the moon its mother,
5) the wind hath carried it in its belly, the earth its nourse.
6) The father of all perfection in ye whole world is here.
7) Its force or power is entire if it be converted into earth.
7a) Seperate thou ye earth from ye fire, ye subtile from the gross sweetly wth great indoustry.
8) It ascends from ye earth to ye heaven & again it desends to ye earth and receives ye force of things superior & inferior.
9) By this means you shall have ye glory of ye whole world & thereby all obscurity shall fly from you.
10) Its force is above all force. ffor it vanquishes every subtile thing & penetrates every solid thing.
11a) So was ye world created.
12) From this are & do come admirable adaptaions whereof ye means (Or process) is here in this.
13) Hence I am called Hermes Trismegist, having the three parts of ye philosophy of ye whole world.
14) That wch I have said of ye operation of ye Sun is accomplished & ended.

Knowledge of how the Emerald Tablet was a secret teaching that used the sun (identity in a birth chart) reserved for only a Chosen few makes for a convincing case as to why the Greeks would incorporate the Christ Pattern the way they did. The Christ pattern was an integration of an already existing, but hidden archetype that was suddenly openly available to all persons.

Archetypal ecology stresses that this Christ pattern draws its evolutionary wisdom from Earth, so, it rightly belongs to a way for human beings to learn to see each other as the full flowering of their unique bioregions. Mahpiya ekta na maka sitimni is the Harmony of the Sun is Gehadot’ha and so on.

In our times, after a shift from here:

oldeskye

to here:

axismundi

The Christ pattern in Western culture has become the Harmony of Earths – which ironically was the intention of the whole pattern from the birth. We see this all the time in our films now. Other planets with other conscious beings working together for the good of all is the glue that holds the Resistance together in all the Star Wars.

So, humbly, I offer the following edit to number 14 in our ancient sequence:

from here:

14) That wch I have said of ye operation of ye Sun is accomplished & ended.

to here:

14) That wch I have said of ye operation of ye Sun is accomplished & ended when it is humbly, peacefully recognized and cultivated in all beings, in all relationships, throughout the sky and Earth in such a way that a beautiful future is ever-consceived upon the Earth and among all planets.

This is what makes the angels sing on Christmas Day.
It’s because there is a new opportunity for peace. Every year since 1914, war is over if human beings want it. A global climate change is possible with each new year.
