Tone 8: Galactic – Harmonic Resonance

White Mirror is your Conscious Self – who you are and who you are becoming.

White Mirror represents the Hall of Mirrors, where you can face your own reflection and see the truth about yourself. As a mirror, White Mirror merely reflects what is, whether truth, beauty or illusion. Here you can face unfinished business, the dissonance of difficulties, or charged issues that would keep you from the full expression of your Divinity. Become aware of any illusions or distortions within yourself; your clarity of perception will transform them. Take a moment to see yourself as you actually are, shadow and all, freed from the maze of mental illusion.

Sometimes you may find yourself reacting rather than freely responding to a situation or person. If you have charged reactions such as frustration, anger, fear, judgement or jealousy, look at how you might be projecting these issues onto someone else. The world is the mirror for you to truly see. Any strong reaction to a person or event signals an issue to work on in yourself. Be willing to examine and utilize what you see in your mirrors, in order to transform dysfunctional belief systems, negative thoughtforms, and fixed patterns.

In the Hall of Mirrors there is no good or bad, no right or wrong – there is only the reflection of what is. As you learn to see yourself, you begin to see your emotional reactions as signs indicating where to focus your awareness for growth.

On this quest, come prepared to face White Mirror’s sword of truth and purification. The wisdom of this sword penetrates, exposes, and ultimately heals your illusions. Discrimination is tempered with love cleanly cuts away everything that does not serve your evolution. To the Maya, White Mirror is the flint that hones your sword.

The greatest gift of the sword is the power of forgiveness. A profound freedom emerges from forgiveness, the releasing of the illusion of cause and effect. Use the great gifts offered in this blad of truth and light to forgive and release anything you may judge or see as imperfect.

You are already an Enlightened Being!

The colour for White Mirror is reflective silver. Silver symbolizes the lunar intelligence of intuition and receptiveness, the mirrored illusions of duality and multiplicity. In the larger pattern, all thigns are reflections of the greater reality. Silver offers a glimpse of the Great Mystery, the reflection of things as they really are. To access the qualities and teachings of White Mirror, utilize silver.

White Mirror’s are able to clearly reflect others back to themselves once their own mirror is clear.

White Wind is your Higher Self & Guide.

White Wind is the galactic wind, the catalyzing current, the Spirit that moves through all things. It is the divine breath that gives life to all creation, the unseen essence of solar energy. White Wind is the breath of inspiration, the fertilizing force of the wind. Its essence is the movement of Spirit as it penetrates into form to enliven, purify and inspire.

Receive the gift of White Wind by simply taking a conscious breath. Amidst the seemign complexity, beathe consciously. Allow your life to be more like the wind, free-flowing and open to Spirit.

White Wind represents spontaneity and simplicity. As you experience the truth of the present moment, White Wind leaves you free to move on to the next moment without the baggage of desire, regret or expectation. White Wind is the simple knowledge that invisible forces are always moving in your life, guiding and inspiring.

White Wind also embodies the concept of presence. Presence is an expression of beingness, a creator of intimacy. It has to do with being wise in your simplicity. From simple beingness, your true identity emerges. Presence is being open, aware, and in the now. Presence is ‘being there’ for whatever is.

Think back to a time when someone looked deeply into your eyes, acknowledging your beingness with their full presence. Remember how wonderful and intimate that felt. When you wnat to be intimate with someone, become equally open, aware, and present. When you bring your awareness into the present moment, everything else falls away. When you are fully present, your mind is not preparing responses to what it is hearing while you’re listening and feeling. Drop your evaluating and reactive nature. Trust that your heart will have the appropriate response when the time comes. Allow your mind to be quietly responsive, like a pool of water, natural in its unconditional acceptance of the moment.

Presence is simple. It is like being caught in the moment by the beauty of nature. Presence is your natural state of being. When you are present, your heart feels open, charged, full. When you are present, whether alone or with another, you are loose and relaxed. Time may seem to slow down. You can expand your awareness with ease, allowing yourself to truly see and be seen. You let your feelings speak through your eyes, and the ‘feeling channel’ in you breathes freely, without expectation or judgement.


Blue Night is your Subconscious Self and Hidden Helper.

Blue night is the dark mystery within, the journey into self, that place to which you can always retreat to garner the gifts of your process subjectively. You are being asked to enter into and explore your process subjectively. Blue Night is the immense field of potential found in the depths of human emotion and feeling. The touch of Blue Night is like the moment you crawl into bed and feel yourself surrounded by warmth, darkness and peace.

Blue Night’s abyss holds the potent evolutionary playing field of all possibility. Here, as in the aboriginal dreamtime, there are no distinctions between then and now, real or imagined, dream or dreamer. In this expanded field, all things are not only possible but are constantly in the process of creation. In the framework of dreamtime, limiting constructs of “ordinary reality” such as time, space, and linear causality are freed into an expanded system, with unlimited access to ALL realities.

Dreamtime holds powerful opportunities. It is a field where potential, past, and future are held in the same matrix as the present moment. If such a construct is foreign to you, stretch your mind and entertain the possibility that you could help to dream a different reality into being. Enter into the mystery where reality is actually created.

In becoming a conscious dreamer, you can assist in literally creating a new reality for yourself, as well as constributing to the larger dream that is emerging. By focusing on this creation, your thoughts and intentions are projected at superluminal speeds across the crystal grid network that encompasses universes. This energetic field seeds, supports, and empowers the creation of an unfolding reality.

At a certain point, when a critical threshold of energy has been focused on a clear intent such as world peace, the underlying constructs of reality shift and a new reality begins filtering into human experience. Make no mistake: great change is seeded by conscious dreamers who understand and know that they are co-creating the larger dream.

Among other things, the dreamfield will bring to the surface your psychological polarities and core issues. These are the belief constructs you learn from society and experience, such as likes and dislikes, values and attitudes. You naturally attract the situation that promises integration, but through conditioning and habitual behaviour, you may choose to compensate, staying in a fixed pattern to protect your position. This choice will create only momentary relief, because the issues will keep being drawn back to be integrated. Thus, you may often find whatever is blocked or hidden manifesting into your consciousness through a dream, a body symptom, or a relationship. Often you may resist the new and the unknown. You may avoid going over your “growth edge”, because it may be asking for a shift in your underlying belief structures. Yet profound growth is possible through working with this charged material. Through following it into the darkness, you bring into the dreamfield the light that will carry you to wholeness and fulfillment.

In working with the growth edge in your dreamfield, often it is important to catalyze enough energy to free the stuckness and fixed patterns. By following or amplifying the feeling, your increased awareness will lead to the root of the issue thas has been separated from consciousness. Hidden within the unused channels of your perception are clues to the mystery that will integrate and release the restrictive pattern.

A meditation for Blue Night is, “I am the darkness that is the light and the stillness that is the dancing.” This meditation perfectly describes the paradoxical energy of Blue Night, the place of darkness from which all light emanates, the no-form abyss that contains all possibility. In finding this still point of Blue Night, you can access any expression of the light. The energy of Blue Night simply asks you to be still, to allow that expression to take shape from the darkness. From the darkness of Blue Night emerges the Essence Self. Sit in stillness, embracing the journey of insight and integration.

The colour of Blue Night is black, which represents the womb of the larger self, the receptive condition necessary to receive the light fully. Black is also an access route to the wisdom of the unconscious, the mystery of the abyss where you can tap into the collective dreamfield for insight and creative ideas. Blue Night also includes the shades of gray, symbolic of the merging of light with the darkness. If you wish to work with the energy of Blue Night, visualize black.

Yellow Star represents your Challenge and Gift. With maturity and awareness this challenge will turn into a Focus. This is what you desire to learn in this lifetime.

One shadow of Yellow Star is believing in an exclusive path or that there is only one true or right system to bring you to enlightenment. However, your personal path is unique. Listen and learn from all teachers, but know that it is up to you to integrate their wisdom into your own truth. The wise way show-er encourages you to be open to all teachings, to follow your own heart’s path.

Another shadow of Yellow Star is that your life’s lessons place you in the midst of disharmonious situations. This may be experienced as living and working with people with whom you feel confict or friction. Another aspect of this shadow is the judgement that sometimes follows from holding harmony as an ideal. All the ways you walk your path can be steps in the practice of harmony. Enact harmony through your relationships, emotions, environment, and expanded viewpoints.

The transformation offered in the shadow of Yellow Star is found by becoming aware of the existing harmony or disharmony in your life. Be willing to appreciate or prune where necessary. Call on wisdom and love to facilitate this pruning process. Open more fully to harmony in all aspects of your life. This harmony of self and one’s life becomes the foundation of freedom.

You may also judge yourself because you can’t seem to remember all that you are. Perhaps you are trying to figure out your purpose, awaken to your destiny, or understand why you came here. Simplify. Look at your present gifts and talents. Free your thoughts and your self-critical nature. You are, in this moment, the sum total of all that you are, have been, and the potential of your complete becoming. Simply be yourself, for only this will open you to the magic of your untapped potential.

Unlike the preceding 7 tones, which were seperate and distinct, Yellow Star begins a more complex harmonic series as it completes the preceding octave. On a spiritual level, Yellow Star begins the development of higher being. The fundamental tones that occur in this series are of a more expanded frequency than those of the preceding seven tones. In this new octave, there is alignment in the harmonies of Earth and the harmonies of the stars that are now being sounded on Earth. Yellow Star is the first in a series of star harmonies that evoke accelerated growth of the starseed potential within you.

Yellow Star offers you the ability to hold a greatly expanded focus, a unity of awareness that encompasses aspects of the larger constellation of self. An example of this would be a simultaneous awareness of the desires of the existential self and the truth of the Essence Self. This star harmony encompasses the greatly enlarged perspective of your starseeded self, the part within you that holds the potential of your greatest destiny.


Red Dragon is your Compliment – something that comes naturally to you.

Red Dragon represents the root source of life, the nurturance and support of primary being, and within it are found the primal waters of unity. This is where your deepest roots receive true nourishment. Red Dragon is the energy of form contained within the formlessness of the primordial sea.

Primal trust means making choices with no guarantees, knowing that divine nurturance will provide what is needed for your journey. It means making choices moment by moment, implicitly trusting your innate steering mechanism of heart-knowing. Primal trust implies surrendering to the will of the divine self, letting go of what your ego deems to be control of the outcomes in your life. It means deeply trusting the processes that are at work within your present spiral of evolution.

The energy of Red Dragon asks you to embrace the depth of your receptivity. Perhaps you have been taught that it is better to give than to receive. Giving is a powerful way to learn how to receive, but it is not the whole picture. There is a circuit of completion in giving and receiving that happens within you and in your external world at the same time. If you trust unconditionally in the giving, you are not attached to how the gift is received. When you freely give, you fill your cup with sweet waters, which you can then offern innocently and purely to another. Know, on one level, that your gift is poured out universally regardless of how it appears to be received. However, when the gift comes from the ego, it is limited by expectations and conditions. Love just is. It is neither given nor taken; rather it is simply discovered and allowed.

The universe is an inseparable whole. Red Dragon represents the energy matrix lines that look like a web in the universe, through which all points are connected in time and space. This energetic web of communication is known as the ‘crystal grid network.’ It is a cauldron of creation, a potent field in which all things are not only possible but constantly being created. Within this grid, the linear causality of time and space has been freed into an open system in which all time and all space exist and interact simultaneously. This grid connects the larger holograms of reality with our own. Its energy lines connect all places, times and events – even those that are seemingly unrelated. All phenomena and all actions are part of this larger whole; it is the very foundation for telepathy and synchronicity. Red Dragon embodies unity, in which all things are one with the Source.

 Your Tone is Tone 8 – Galactic

Empowerment, galactic grid, path of the one heart.

Eight is the ray of harmonic resonance, the foundation of self combined with the current of the trinity. It is love made visible. Create the flow of harmony in your life. Enter the spiral frequencies of the greater galactic grid. You are being offered empowerment through your innate resonance with this grid. Be aware of where you are drawn, for there you will find unique opportunities. Discover the harmony of being in this natural resonance with others. Be receptive. You are the diviner of harmony, the meeting ground of physical reality and the infinite.

Bring a deeper harmony to the practical circumstances in which you find yourself. Free the ego from its self-centeredness. Embrace the potent energies that are raising the harmonic frequencies of the planet. Breathe easily; you are the song being sun by the new golden octave. Sound the resonant tone of the one heart!

Ang Mga Aral ni Haring Saturno

“Alam kong wala kang kasalanan. Huwag mo pagtakpan ang brod mo. Nakisama ka lamang. Nagpauto ka lang.” ang sigaw ni Senador sa  senate inquiry na napanood ko sa telebisyon.  Tungkol ito sa panunuhol sa dalawang Assistant Commisioners ng Immigration.

May halong awa at paninikip ng dibdib ang aking nararamdaman habang pinapanood ang ginagawang pagtatanong sa opisyal sapagkat matagal ko rin naman siyang kakilala at kasama sa paglalakbay patungong silangan para marating at makita ang liwanag. Isa siyang mabuting tao, mapagmahal sa pamilya, sa mga kaibigan, at maipagmamalaki ng samahan dahil sa angking talino at pinag-aralan. Mahigit na limang taon na rin ang nakaraan ng matanaw niya ang liwanag.

Dangan nga lamang at hindi ko siya nakikita nitong mga nagdaang mga buwan , marahil  abala sa trabaho sa bagong posisyon sa gobyerno , pero sa aking palagay  kung may pagkakataon ay bigla na lamang susulpot at makikipag kumustahan sa mga kapatid.

Pagkaraan ng ilang buwan ay nagulat na lamang kami dahil nasasangkot sa anila ay pangingikil o corruption.  “Bakit ganon ang nangyari? Bakit hindi nagtuloy-tuloy ang kanyang swerte? Bakit biglang nagbago ang nakalaang magandang hinaharap na buhay?  Anong kapalaran ang nakatadhana sa promising young man na bago pa lamang nagkakaroon ng magandang kinabukasan.  Napaka misteryoso ang mundo  na ito.  Hindi malaman ang tamang daan na tatahakin.

Planet Saturn Aspect

Bigla kong naisip na baka may epekto ang mga bituin at planeta sa taon ng kanyang kapanganakan  kaya mayroong pinagdadaanan ang buhay niya sa kasalukuyan – lalo na ang epekto ng paglalakbay ng planetang Saturn na apektado ang oras, araw, buwan at taon ng isang tao . Matindi ang galaw ni Haring Saturno o Kronos – mabigat ang mga disiplina na pinapagawa sa buhay para matutuhan ang mga aral nito lalo na kapag ito na nakatumbok o nakatapat sa posisyon ng  Araw.

Ayon sa Astrolohiya, hindi madali ang aspeto ng Saturn sa buhay ng tao. Siya ang nagtuturo ng seryosong pagtratrabaho, disiplina at responsibilidad.  Saturn ang nagkokontrol ng oras, ng mga limitasyon kung paano natin magagawa ng tama ang mga gawain. Tinuturuan nya ang tamang daan ng isang tao ayon sa kabutihan at ikakabuti ng kanyang kaluluwa. Parang isang ama, dinidisplina niya ang kanyang mga anak ng tamang kaisipan sa matuwid at tamang kautusan. Walang nakakaligtas sa mga turo ni Haring Saturno. Lahat tayo ay dadaan sa disiplina kapag dumating ang panahon na nakatapat ito sa araw ng kapanganakan na tumatagal ng 2 hanggang 3 taon.  Nagkaka iba nga lamang ang mga aral na ituturo sa mga nilalang sa mga panahon na ito.  Umiikot ang planetang ito sa loob ng 29-30 taon sa araw. Mararanasan ito ng bawat nilalang ng dalawa o tatlong beses kung mahaba ang buhay.

Transit Saturn Opposition natal Sun in Taurus

Tama ang hinala ko. Matapos kong malaman ang date of birth, nakonpirma ko na ipinganak sya sa buwan ng Taurus, first week of May. Ang aral na gustong ipaabot ni Saturn ay ngayon nararamdaman at natutupad. Sa panahon ng opposition, ayon sa mga Astrologers, makakaramdam ng depression ang isang nilalang sapagkat ito ang pinakamababang emosyon ng isang tao, pakiramdam na walang direksyon, ang paghihirap sa mga material na bagay, pakiramdam na napakabigat ang mabuhay, pakikipag-away, hiwalayan ng mag-asawa, pagiging laging may sakit  na kung minsan ay tuluyan ng humihiwalay para maging espirito. Sa mga pagkakataon  na ito,  ay maitatanong mo sa iyong sarili kung bakit nangyayari ito, lahat ng gawin ay mali at may mga balakid. Malalaman mo rin sa mga panahon na ito

Ang dapat gawin ay maging matatag lamang at umasa na may darating na magandang yugto ang buhay. Huwag kontrahin ang aral na ipinahihiwatig bagkus ay maging positibo ang pagsalarawan sa kinabukasan. Maging totoo at sundan lamang ng tapat ang nasa puso, sapagkat walang makakatulong kung di ang sarili lamang.  Tumawag sa Diyos at taimtim na hanapin ang tamang kasagutan sa problemang hinaharap.  At kapag nagawa ito ay siguradong hindi magkakamali o mapapahamak at darating ang nakalaang magandang bukas.

Sa aking analysis, malalagpasan niya ang crisis sa buhay na nangyayari  sa kasalukuyan.

My Personal Experience

Naranasan ko rin ang aral ni Haring Saturno. Taong 2001 noong ang planetang Saturn  ay nagkaroon ng epekto sa aking buhay. Ibang klaseng aral nga lamang, apektado ang 7th house of my birth chart o tungkol sa relationship ng marriage. Mabigat ang naging aral na marami ang nawala sa aking buhay – na katulad sa  Book of Job  ng Bibliya ay patuloy na pinagdadaanan.

(Isa sa mga bahay namin bago dumating ang mga pagsubok  ng tadhana)

Marami akong mga librong binasa at pinag-aralan para magkaroon ng kasagutan ang aking mga katanungan. Ginugol ko ang sarili sa pagbabasa ng mga libro ng positive mind books, astrology books, pumasok sa masonerya para maintindihan ang mga libro at sekreto nito, nagbasa din ng mga articles and write-ups ng mga like-mind writers, atbp..

Book of Job

Ang Aklat ni Job ay kasaysayan ng isang mabuting tao na dumanas ng katakut-takot na hirap. Namatay lahat ang kanyang anak, naubos ang kanyang kayamanan at nagkaroon pa siya ng nakakadiring sakit sa balat. Ipinaliwanag ng mga kaibigan ni Job ang kanyang paghihirap ayon sa kanilang kinagisnang paniniwala na ang laging ginagantimpalaan ng Diyos ay ang mabuti at pinaparusahan ang masama.

Dahil dito, lumilitaw na si Job ay nagkasala. Ngunit para kay Job, hindi siya dapat patawan ng gayong kabigat na parusa sapagkat buo ang paniniwala niya na siya ay matuwid. Hindi niya maunawaan kung bakit pahihintulutan ng Diyos na mangyari sa isang tulad niya ang gayong mga paghihirap. Kaya’t buong tapang niyang hinamon ang Diyos. Hindi nanghina ang pananampalataya ni Job. Gayunman, hangad niyang siya’y ituring na walang sala sa harap ng Diyos at mabawi ang kanyang karangalan bilang isang taong matuwid.

Hindi sinagot ng Diyos ang mga tanong ni Job, subalit tinugon niya ang pananampalataya nito sa pamamagitan ng isang matulaing paglalarawan ng kanyang kapangyarihan at karunungan.

Hinamon ng Diyos si Job ng kapamahalaan at kapangyarihan kung ihahambing sa Kanyang sarili. Tinanong ng Diyos ang mga sumusunod na serye ng mga katanungan upang ipakita ang kahinaan ni Job. Isa ito sa mga sagot,

Job 38:31-32

Canst thou bind the sweet influences of Pleiades, or loose the bands of Orion? Canst thou bring forth Mazzaroth in his season? Or canst thou guide Arcturus with his sons?

Sa ganoon, buong kababaang-loob na kinilala ni Job na ang Diyos ay marunong at dakila. Kaya’t pinagsisihan naman niya ang mabibigat na salitang nasabi niya.

Nakasaad sa bandang huli ay kung paano ibinalik si Job sa dati niyang kalagayan. Higit pa ang naging kayamanan niya kaysa dati. Pinagsabihan ng Diyos ang mga kaibigan ni Job sa kakulangan ng kanilang pagkaunawa sa pagdurusa ni Job. Tanging si Job lamang ang nakadama at nakaunawa na higit ang Diyos kaysa anumang uri ng paglalarawan sa kanya ng kinaugaliang relihiyon

————-

Sa aking pag-iisa at sa aking pag-aaral ng mga impluwensya ng mga bituin at planeta, nakita ko kung bakit ako nabuhay sa mundo na ito,  ano ang ambisyon ko, saan ako pupunta, ano ang dapat gawin  para  matupad ang tamang daan sa hinahanap kong liwanag para maging ka isa ng Dios.

Maraming simbolismo ng masonerya ang ginawa at iniwan ng mga naunang mga kapatid
na Amerikanong Mason sa Pilipinas ang hindi ipinaliwanag at sinabi kung nasaan o kung ano ang mga ito. Madalas ay simbolo na nasa mga parks at streets lamang.

Dahil binalak ng mga Amerikano na gawing estado ng bansang Amerika ang Pilipinas, dinisenyo nila na ang mga importanteng sentro ng lungsod ayon sa tamang coordinates or symbols “as above so below” principle katulad sa Washington DC sa Amerika.

Isa sa mga arkitekto at town planners na nagdesign ng mga lungsod ng Maynila, Quezon City at Baguio City ay si Daniel Burnham, isang arkitektong Amerikano na nagplano ng Bagumbayan Field ( Luneta Park) nooong 1912.  Siya rin ang gumawa ng master plan ng mga city of Chicago, Downtown Washington DC, Masonic Temple Building sa Chicago, at marami pang mga lugal sa Pilipinas at Amerika.

Why Lapu-Lapu, the warrior ??..This is wrong symbol of GAOTU  at the center of the cross..this will attract  war and disharmony. The best representation is the mound be planted with red roses, the symbol of the immortality of the soul, the renewal of life, the goodness of God that will grace the high level of enlightenment to the country and the Filipino people.

From the 18th Degree Knight of Rose Croix of the moral and dogma by Albert Pike;

“The Degree of Rose Cross teaches three things;—the unity, immutability and goodness of God; the immortality of the Soul; and the ultimate defeat and extinction of evil and wrong and sorrow, by a Redeemer or Messiah, yet to come, if he has not already appeared.

The ROSE, was anciently sacred to Aurora and the Sun. It is a symbol of Dawn, of the resurrection of Light and the renewal of life, and therefore of the dawn of the first day, and more particularly of the resurrection: and the Cross and Rose together are therefore hieroglyphical to be read, the Dawn of Eternal Life which all Nations have hoped for by the advent of a Redeemer.”

From Rosicrucian;

Master Rosicrucian  Max Heindel had written, “the blood-red rose shows the passion filled blood of the human race, and the goal to bring the pure and holy state to which man will attain when he has cleansed and purified his blood from desire, when he has become chaste, pure and Christ-like.

Thus we see that in time the present passionate mode of generation will be again superceded by a pure and more efficient method than the present, and that also is symbolized in the Rose Cross where the rose is placed in the center between the four arms. The long limb represents the body, the two horizontals, the two arms and the short upper limb, the head. The the rose is in place of the larynx.

The rose, like any other flower, is the generative organ of the plant. Its green stem carries the colorless, passionless plant-blood. The blood-red rose shows the passion filled blood of the human race, but in the rose the vital fluid is not sensuous, it is chaste and pure. Thus it is an excellent symbol of the generative organ in the pure and holy state to which man will attain when he has cleansed and purified his blood from desire, when he has become chaste, pure and Christ-like.

Therefore the Rosicrucians look ardently forward to the day when the roses shall bloom upon the cross of humanity, therefore the Elder Brothers greet the aspiring soul with the words of the Rosicrucian Greeting: “May the Roses bloom upon your Cross,” and therefore the greeting is given in the meetings of the Fellowship Centers by the leader to the assembled students, probationers and disciples who respond to the greeting by saying “And on yours, also.”  (The Rosicrucian Cosmo-conception; Or, Mystic Christianity) .

The Cross

Rosy_Cross.jpg

“Cross-shaped object is ancient symbol to represent the four physical elements. Here each arm is colored to represent one element: yellow, blue, black and red to represent air, water, earth and fire. These colors are also repeated on the bottom portion of the cross. The white on the upper portion of bottom arm represents spirit, the fifth element.

The cross can also represent dualism, two forces going in conflicting directions yet uniting at a central point. The union of rose and cross is also a generative symbol, the union of male of female.

Finally, the cross’s proportions are made up of six squares: one for each arm, an extra one for the lower arm, and the center. A cross of six squares can be folded into a cube.

The Rose

The rose has three tiers of petals. The first tier, of three petals, represents the three basic alchemical elements: salt, mercury and sulfur. The tier of seven petals represents the seven Classical planets (The Sun and Moon are considered planets here, with the term “planets” indicating the seven bodies that appear to circle the earth independently of the star field, which moves as a single unit). The tier of twelve represent the astrological zodiac. Each of the twenty-two petals bears one of the twenty-two letters in the Hebrew alphabet and also represents the twenty-two paths on the Tree of Life.

The rose itself has a myriad assortment of additional meanings associated with it:

It is at once a symbol of purity and a symbol of passion, heavenly perfection and earthly passion; virginity and fertility; death and life. The rose is the flower of the goddess Venus but also the blood of Adonis and of Christ. It is a symbol of transmutation – that of taking food from the earth and transmuting it into the beautiful fragrant rose. The rose garden is a symbol of Paradise. It is the place of the mystic marriage. In ancient Rome, roses were grown in the funerary gardens to symbolize resurrection. The thorns have represented suffering and sacrifice as well as the sins of the Fall from Paradise. (“A Brief Study of The Rose Cross Symbol,” no longer online)

Inside the large rose is a smaller cross bearing a another rose. This second rose is depicted with five petals. Five is the number of the physical senses: sight, hearing, touch, taste, and smell, and it is also the number of man’s extremities: two arms, two legs, and the head. Thus, the rose represents humanity and physical existence.”

From Societas  Rosicruciana

http://www.sricf-ca.org/paper3.htm

The Symbolism of the Rose-Cross

The basic rose cross symbol is that of a rose appended to the junction of the two lines of the cross – the center point. But the traditional Rosicrucian symbol is a cross of 6 squares whereon is a red rose of five petals. The cross is of 6 squares for a number of reasons. It relates the cross to the number six which is the number of the Tree of rife Sphere to which it corresponds, (See the Tree of Life diagram in the appendix) that is, the Sphere of Tiphareth (Beauty) also known as the Sphere of the Sun. The cross of six squares is also the unfolded cube of six faces. The perfect cube has been used to represent the Holy of Holies since Old Testament times. We know the tabernacle was 10 cubits in length, breadth, and height. The Sanctum Sanctorum of Solomon’s Temple likewise was cubically shaped using the measure of 20 cubits. In Revelation (21:17-18) the New Jerusalem is likened to a perfect cube of pure gold. Gold is related to the cube, cross, and Sun sphere for a number of reasons. Gold is the metal associated with the sun. But also Qabalistically, the cube unfolds to a cross of six; this means that the units around the cross (the perimeter) add up to 14. The Hebrew word zahab means gold and the letters of the word add up to 14 (Zain + Heh + Beth or 7 + 5 + 2 = 14). In addition, all these symbols that correspond to six correspond geometrically to the hexagram.

The rose is, as mentioned before, related to the number 5 and the pentagram. It is the flower of Venus, the Goddess of Love. Also as mentioned before, it is a sign of secrecy (Cupid, Venus’s son, is sometimes represented holding his finger to his lips as was the Egyptian Harpocrates.) Being the number five, it also is related to the hypotenuse of the 3-4-5 right triangle.

One of the earliest depictions of the rose and cross is in the manuscript titled the Secret Symbols of the Rosicrucians (Geheime Figures der Rosenkreuzer aus dem l6en und 17th Jahrhundert), published in 1785. (Again, see appendix) Around the upper part of the cross is written: “This is the Golden and Rosy Cross, made of pure gold, which every Brother wears on his Breast.” The Rose-Cross Lamen of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn may be derived from this figure as they have very many common elements as will be seen upon comparison. I have included the Golden Dawn Rose-Cross lamen in the appendix in both black and white and in color (the approximate correct colors). Also given is a front view and the back view. Let us examine the Rose-Cross lamen in some detail.

The lamen is a cross with each arm representing one of the four elements: Fire – red, Water – blue, Air – yellow, and Earth – citrine, olive, black and russet. Each arm is depicted with an upright pentagram crowned with Spirit representing that he who wears this is Master of the Four Worlds. This is confirmed by the glyph of the hexagram surrounded by the planetary symbols with the sign of the sun at the center.

The ending of each arm of the cross is triple with each segment assigned to one of the three alchemical principles: sulphur, salt, and mercury. The three segments upon the four arms allude also to the 12 signs of the zodiac. At the center of the cross is the rose of 22 petals. The rose is divided into 3 petals at the center, 7 petals in the second circle, and 12 in the outer circle. They are depicted in the appropriate Hebrew letters and colors as such: the three so-called Mother Letters in the primary colors (yellow, blue, and red), the 7 double letters in the secondary colors, and the 12 single letters in the chromatic color scale. Of course they also represent the 3 elements (the fourth being an admixture), the 7 planets of the ancients, and the 12 zodiac signs. In the midst of this rose is another rose-cross. Behind this Rose-Cross lamen are rays of white light with the signs of L.V.X. and I.N.R.I. written thereon.

In order to strengthen the connection of this symbol with our Society’s aims and teachings it might helpful to go over some of the correspondences and qabalistic allusions. First let us consider that in the Rose-Cross we are looking into the Mysteries of the Pentagram and the Hexagram. The Pentagram is a symbol that relates the 4 Ancients or Elements in a proper perspective to the Spirit. The elements are depicted by the symbol of the fixed signs of the Zodiac which relate to each one. That is the following:

    Fire          Water             Air            Earth
    Leo           Scorpio           Aquarius       Taurus
    Lion          Eagle             Man            Bull
    5th Sign      8th Sign          11th Sign      2nd Sign
    Yod (10)      Heh (5)           Vav (6)        Heh (5)
    Atziluth      Briah             Yetzirah       Assiah

(As an aside: Each side of the Vault is 8 x 5 or 8+5+8+5 = 26 which equals the Unpronounceable Name of God = Yod-Heh-Vav-Heh = 26) The hexagram represents all the cosmic forces because it not only depicts the planets but also the zodiac. But we must also consider that the planets depicted are also symbols of more esoteric doctrines. Some of the correspondences are as follows:

    Planet    Metal    Angel         Chakra         Location
    Mercury   mercury  Raphael       Sahssrara      Pineal gland
    Moon      silver   Gabriel       Ajna           Pituitary body
    Venus     copper   Anael         Vishuddha      Pharyngeal
    Sun       gold     Michael       Anahata        cardiac plexus
    Jupiter   tin      Tzadkiel      manipura       solar plexus
    Mars      iron     Kamael        Svadhisthansa  prostatic
    Saturn    lead     Tsaphkiel     muladhara      sacral plexus

At the end of the arms of the cross we have the alchemical symbols which mean much more than their mundane meanings. Their associations are as follows:

     Mercury            Sulphur            Salt
     Superconscious     Self-conscious     Subconscious
     Kether             Chokmah            Binah
     Sattvaguna         Rasguna            Tamasguna

It should be apparent that great care was taken in the design of this symbol. And it should be clear how this lamen synthesizes the entire First Order teachings as well as embodies that of the whole Rosicrucian Fraternity as well. It contains the Kabalah, numerology, the elements, the pentagram taught in the Zelator degree, the four worlds , the Hebrew Divine Name, the color symbolism found in the Theoricus grade, the alchemy taught in the Practicus grade, and alludes to the esoteric connections of the world religions, ancient philosophies and the deep mysteries of I.N.R.I.

The Invocation of the Sacred Phoenix (Bennu/Benu Bird) in the Book of the Dead, Chapter 83 (LXXXIII):
I flew up and out of the Primeval Waters,
and I came into being like the God Khepra (the Divine Scarab),
I grew like the Plants,
I am concealed like the Turtle, 
I am the essence of the Gods,
I am Yesterday of the Four Quarters of the World
and the Seven Urea who came into being in the West,
Whom Horus has illuminated by his hand 
and witnesses against Seth,
where Thoth dwelled in the middle for judgement,
as judge on behalf of Sekhem and the spirits of Annu (Heliopolis),
he was like a stream between them,
I have come,
I rise up on my Throne,
I become the Shining One, 
I am Mighty,
I become holy among the Gods,
I am the God Khonsu (the Moon) who drives back all that is opposed to him.

 

Invocation of Thoth

Adapted from the Sixty-fourth Chapter of the Book of the Dead.

“Procol oh procol este profani. Barlasti ompala.”

“In the name of the Mighty and Terrible One, I proclaim that I have banished the shells unto their habitations. I invoke Tahuti, the Lord of Wisdom and of Utterance; the god that cometh forth from the veil. Oh thou, majesty of the godhead, wisdom-crowned Tahuti, Lord of the gates of the universe. Thee, thee I invoke. Oh thou of the ibis head. Thee, thee I invoke. Thou who wieldest the wand of double power. Thee, thee I invoke. Thou who bearest in thy left hand the rose and cross of light and life. Thee, thee I invoke. Thou whose head is as an emerald, and thy nemyss as the night sky blue. Thee, thee I invoke. Thou whose skin is a flaming orange as though it burned in a furnace. Thee, thee I invoke.

Behold, I am yesterday, today, and the brother of tomorrow. I am born again and again. Mine is the unseen force whereof the gods are sprung, which is as life unto the dwellers in the Watchtowers of the Universe. I am the charioteer of the east; Lord of the past and the future. I see by my own inward light; Lord of resurrection who cometh forth from the dust, and my birth is from the house of death. Oh ye two Divine hawks upon your pinnacles who keep watch over the universe.

Ye who company the Bier to the house of rest, who pilot the ship of Ra, ever advancing onwards the heights of heaven. Lord of the shrine which standeth in the center of the earth. Behold! He is me and I in him. Mine is the radiance wherein Ptah floateth over the firmament. I travel upon high. I tread upon the firmament of Nu. I raise a flashing flame with the lightening of mine eye. Ever rushing on in the splendor of the daily glorified Ra, giving my life to the dwellers of earth. If I say come up upon the mountain, the celestial waters shall flow at my command. For I am Ra incarnate, Kephra created in the flesh. I am the idolar of my father Tnu, Lord of the city of the sun. The god who commands is in my mouth. The god of wisdom is in my heart. My tongue is the sanctuary of truth and a god sitteth upon my lips. My word is accomplished every day, and the desire of my heart realizes itself as that of Ptah when he created his works. I am eternal, therefore all things are as my designs. Therefore do thou come forth unto me from thine abode in the silence, unutterable wisdom, all light or power.

Thoth. Hermes. Mercury. Odin. By whatever name I call thee thou art still nameless to eternity. Come thou forth I say, and aid and guard me in this work of art. Thou star of the east that didst conduct the magi. Thou art the same all present in heaven and in hell. Thou that vibratest between the light and the darkness, rising, descending, changing ever, yet ever the same. The sun is thy father; thy mother the moon. The wind hath borne thee in it’s bosom and earth hath ever nourished the changeless god head of thy youth. Come thou forth I say, come thou forth and make every spirit of the firmament and of the ether, upon the earth and under the earth, on dry land and in the water, of whirling air and of rushing fire, and every spell and scourge of God the Vast One may be obedient unto me”.

 

 

 

 

Masonic Year 6016 A.L. (anno lucis)

 

January until March are installation ceremony months in Philippine Masonry. Installation programmes  of appointed and elected officers indicate Masonic Year date of 6016 which is equivalent  to year ca. 4000 BCE- 2016 AD.

What is the significance of circa 4000 BCE in Freemasonry?  From the Egyptian secret of the Precession of the Equinox, this was the year of the Age of Taurus  (ca. 4000-3100 BCE).  In astrological event, Taurus is ruled by planet Venu the Goddess or Inanna the female Deity.

As above so below, the significance might be  the universal union of the male and the female principle which is the principal law of creation and the esoteric belief of mystic freemasons – the foundation of modern masonry.

Square and Compass union  is an allegory of sacred sexuality, holy marriage or hieros gamos..the secret of creation.

 

inanna

Age of Taurus ca.  4000 BCE

In Ancient Mesopotamia, the most prominent female deity was Inanna. As early as the Uruk period (ca. 4000–3100 BCE), Inanna was associated with the city of Uruk. The famous Uruk Vase (found in a deposit of cult objects of the Uruk III period) depicts a row of naked men carrying various objects, bowls, vessels, and baskets of farm products, and bringing sheep and goats, to a female figure facing the ruler. This figure was ornately dressed for a divine marriage, and attended by a servant. The female figure holds the symbol of the two twisted reeds of the doorpost, signifying Inanna behind her, while the male figure holds a box and stack of bowls, the later cuneiform sign signifying En, or high priest of the temple. Especially in the Uruk period, the symbol of a ring-headed doorpost is associated with Inanna.

In this period, human connection to the higher being is being practiced through divine feminine or goddess. A goddess is a female deity with supernatural powers in polytheistic religions. Goddesses most often have female characteristics that are apotheosized in their pure form, and some cases they have rather general for all humans characteristics, both men and women, like Sophia, and other times they can have characteristics that are rather not specific for women like battle and hunting success (Artemis).  Thus while they have been, are and may be associated with as wide a range of phenomena as male deities, including war, creation and sometimes destruction (and death), life-giving, healing and compassion, they have been especially associated with beauty, love, motherhood and in prehistoric religions and also later with the Earth, fertility (Mother-goddess cult in prehistoric times).

Holy Marriage Ritual or Sacred Sexuality

inanna1.jpg

The concept of the sacred marriage originated with the ancients, who typically enacted annual ceremonies to bring fertility and prosperity. The Greeks called it Hieros Gamos. Many mythologies describe it as a marriage between heaven and earth. In ancient Egypt, the marriage between Isis and Osiris was considered sacred union of heaven and earth, of yin and yang, of the feminine and the masculine principles.

Holy Marriage is known as hierogamy or Hieros gamos, is a sexual ritual that acts out or simulates a marriage between a goddess and a god, especially when enacted in a symbolic rite where human participants assume the identity of the deities.  The ritual symbolises the concordance of the female and male in the ceremony. The notion of Hieros gamos does not assume an actual performance in ritual because it can also be enacted in a purely imitative or mythological context.

Hinduism

In Hinduism, Devadasi tradition  is a religious tradition in which girls are “married” and dedicated to a deity (deva or devi) or to a Hindu temple and includes performance aspects such as those that take place in the temple as well as in the courtly and mujuvani [Telugu] or home context. Originally, in addition to this and taking care of the temple and performing rituals, these women learned and practiced Sadir, Odissi and other classical Indian artistic traditions and enjoyed a high social status. Ancient Near East

Sumerian City

Sacred prostitution was common in the Ancient Near East[1] as a form of “Sacred Marriage” or hieros gamos between the king of a Sumerian city-state and the High Priestess of Inanna, the Sumerian goddess of love, fertility, and warfare. Along the Tigris and Euphrates rivers there were many shrines and temples dedicated to Inanna. The temple of Eanna, meaning “house of heaven”[2] in Uruk[3] was the greatest of these. The temple housed Nadītu, priestesses of the goddess. The high priestess would choose for her bed a young man who represented the shepherd Dumuzid, consort of Inanna, in a hieros gamos or sacred marriage, celebrated during the annual Duku ceremony, just before Invisible Moon, with the autumn Equinox[4] (Autumnal Zag-mu Festival).

Greek mythology

In Greek mythology the classic instance is the wedding of Zeus and Hera celebrated at the Heraion of Samos,[5] and doubtless its architectural and cultural predecessors. Some scholars[6] would restrict the term to reenactments, but most accept its extension to real or simulated union in the promotion of fertility: such an ancient union of Demeter with Iasion, enacted in a thrice-plowed furrow, a primitive aspect of a sexually-active Demeter reported by Hesiod,[7] is sited in Crete, origin of much early Greek myth. The brief fertilizing mystical union engenders Dionysus, and doubled unions, of a god and of a mortal man on one night, result, through telegony, in the semi-divine nature of Greek heroes such as Theseus and Heracles among others.

If the ‘Sacred Marriage Rite’ ever involved human participants the priestess, acting as Inanna, would have engaged in ritual copulation with the king (Stuckey, 2005).  In the Sumerian version of the ‘Sacred Marriage’ the High Priestess is known as Entu and, as Inanna personal and actual is identity

The so-called ‘sacred prostitute’ or temple priestess was associated with the religions of the Great Mother goddess in ancient times. These temple priestesses became the representatives in physical form of the Goddess and entered into sacred sexual rituals with male worshippers, and this provides evidence of the ‘sacred feminine’ then and now. Sacred or temple ‘prostitution’ was supposedly performed in ancient temples as a fertility ritual that involved the practice of sacred sexual intercourse as part of the religious worship of the Goddess. However, with regard to temple prostitution the sequence is at best doubtful because the “…term ‘sacred prostitution’ for any and all sexual practices connected with temple service keeps us from understanding the meaning of such practices for contemporaries. (Lerner, 1986).

It becomes a necessity to distinguish between ‘cultic sexual service’ and commercial prostitution. Cultic sexual service by men and women may date back to the Neolithic age, to various cults of the Mother Goddess, or the so-called Great Goddess in her many manifestations (Gimbutas, 1982). Unfortunately many scholars do not attempt to differentiate between ritual sex as a form of worship, and the use of sexual favours for pay (Henshaw, 1994). Ritual sex would not have been prostitution, even if the act produced an offering to the temple, because it was regarded and performed as a mutually accepted act of worship. Many ritual practices in the ancient Eastern Mediterranean focussed on promoting the fecundity of the land. In early Mesopotamia the  ‘Sacred Marriage’ of Hieros gamos, with its focus on fertility, could have possibly involved a ‘sacred prostitute whereby “…cultic prostitution is a practice involving the female and at times the male devotees of fertility deities, who presumably dedicated their earnings to their deity.” (Yamuchi, 1973). Furthermore, the motives of the ‘Sacred Marriage’ rite in Mesopotamia were where the king had sexual congress with a ‘temple prostitute’ who performed, using a form of role play, as an earthly receptacle for the goddess.

Mesopotamian titles for these priestesses or ‘sacred prostitutes’ have been translated and include naditu, qadishtu, and entu (Odens, 2000). However, in general, naditu priestesses were of high status and were expected to be chaste (Henshaw, 1994), and there appears to be no actual evidence that the duties of a naditu included having ritual or cultic sexual intercourse. The title of qadishtu meant “…holy, consecrated, or set apart woman” (Odens, 2000), and derives from the same root as the Hebrew deshah, which implies  the qadishtu was not indeed a cultic prostitute. Translation of ‘sacred or cultic prostitute’ as deshah or deshut , which is feminine single and plural, with qadesh and deshim the masculine singular and plural. This translation was imposed by ancient  Hebrew priests to deliberately associate deshah the sacred or consecrated woman with zonah or common prostitute. Most Mesopotamian priestesses were expected to be chaste with the one exception being the entu whom the Sumerians called Lady Deity or Lady Who is Goddess (Frayne, 1985; Henshaw, 1994). Sumerian and Akkadian entu were highly regarded and socially superior priestesses who were distinguished with special ceremonial attire, who owned property, and initiated the Hieros gamos ceremony with priests and kings (Dening, 1996).  The naditu served as priestesses in the temples of Inanna in the ancient city of Erech or Uruk. Recruited from high ranking families they were expected to remain childless. The Sumerian word Nin, Eres in Akkadian, means Lady, the Sumerian word Nin-Dingur means Divine Lady. In Sumerian epic texts such as Enmerkar and the Lord of Aratta, the Nu-Gig  were priestesses in temples dedicated to Inanna. The qadishtu served in the temples of the Sumerian goddess Qetesh, and the ishtaritsu specialised in dancing, music and singing in the temples of Ishtar.

Babylon has often been, somewhat inaccurately and emotionally, equated with and denigrated as the home of sacred prostitution. Nonetheless, often associated with the Sumerian goddess Inanna is the great goddess of Babylon called Ishtar. Ishtar who possessed two main functions or attributes. Firstly she was the goddess of love and sexuality, and secondly she was a fierce war goddess who was sometimes shown riding on a lion. Two of her epithets were Mother of Harlots and the Great Whore of Babylon. The Mesopotamian city of Erech or Uruk was known as, and referred to as, the town of sacred courtesans. Temples to Ishtar were inhabited supposedly by sacred prostitutes and priestesses, called ishtartu or Joy-maidens, dedicated to the service of the goddess. Their sexuality was seen as belonging to Ishtar and used only in sacred rites undertaken in her worship. These women were not common prostitutes which were known in ancient Babylon as harimtu. Ishtar did not differentiate in bestowing her sexual favours and honoured the sexual act howsoever and with whomsoever it was performed. From The Courtship of Inanna and Dumuzi we find Inanna exclaiming “who will plough my vulva?” and “Who will water the Holy lap?”.  These are obvious in their agricultural connotations. In an interesting side note the word fuck is at one with, and comes from, the medieval fork (of Indo-European origin) or plough (Taylor, 1996). In other words to fuck is to plough or furrow. The image of the female earth mound being entered and sown by the male ploughing penis would have been a vivid image for ancient goddess centred Neolithic farming communities.

Ancient Greek prostitutes were divided into several categories. The pornai  were found at the lower echelons of the social scale. In Classical Greece the pornai had been captured slaves of barbarian origin, even though sacred prostitution was not known on the same scale as the ancient Near East. In ancient Greece and Anatolia the term hierodule meant ‘temple’ or ‘female slave’. The temple slave in the service of a specific deity has often been misinterpreted as implying religious prostitution, which was excused on the basis that the sexual service provided was in honour of the deity. Heterae were courtesans who were educated and sophisticated companions. Most engaged in sexual relations with their patrons  who did not function simply as prostitutes. Heterae should not be confused with the pornai of the time, who sold sex by the act for recompense and who worked on the streets or out of brothels (Hamel, 2003).  Heterae therefore must not be conflated with pornai or prostitutes, or with mistresses known as the pallakide, nor with actual wives who were termed gynaekes.  Ancient Greek heterae are similar to the Babylonian naditu. As sex and sexuality in Greek culture evolved these courtesans became inclined to maintain a fashionable appearance and eventually and keep up with business. Cultured socially elite Athenian women eventually infused the styles of the hetarae into popular Greek life and culture. Athenian women learned to imitate and refine the styles of the prostitute, including removal of pubic hair, the stylised application and adoption of the manner of dress of the hetarae (Garrison, 2000). The original meaning of the word ‘prostitute’ was to stand on behalf of, that is to represent the power of the goddess.  This is why the ishtartu were forbidden to marry in the connubial sense and instead were dedicated to the Rite of Sacred Marriage. Sacred sexual intercourse, if and when it occurred, it occurred took place in the temples of Inanna and Ishtar and was an important and common form of sacred sexuality practised in ancient Mesopotamia.  The rite was believed to invigorate the land with divine fertile energy. For this reason the temple priestess took the title of Hierodule of Heaven or Servant of the Holy (Marvelly, 2005

Freemasonry

Square and Compasses joined together is an allegory of Sacred Sexuality of the Rite of Sacred  Marriage.

Square and Compass Black.jpg
Morals and Dogma: Consistory: XXXII. Sublime of the Royal Secret pg. 850-51

The SQUARE, therefore, is a natural and appropriate Symbol of this Earth and the things that belong to it, are of it, or concern it. The Compass is an equally natural and appropriate Symbol of the Heavens, and of all celestial things and celestial natures.

The COMPASS, therefore, as the Symbol of the Heavens, represents the spiritual, intellectual, and moral portion of this double nature of Humanity; and the SQUARE, as the Symbol of the Earth, its material, sensual, and baser portion.

 

Mackey also wrote about this in his “Symbolism of Freemasonry”. Both Mackey and Pike note that the Hindus represent the solar male principle in nature by the phallus, while the earth female principle is represented by the yoni. The union between these opposing natural forces are exemplified in the symbol of Shiva copulating with Shakti, found in statues in many Hindu Temples.

It was the belief of both Pike and Mackey that the square and compass alluded to the same meaning. The sexual act has always been treated as a sacred mystery for this reason. Not only does it reflect the balance of Nature, but it produces new life, which is the Greater Mystery. We all know the mechanical process by which a new life is conceived, but the Mysteries deal with the spiritual process.

The Sexual Meanings of Masonic Symbols

www.theforbiddenknowledge.com/hardtruth/pagen_alter_four.htm

Along with the Bible, or whatever “holy book” is employed in each particular Lodge, are two other “Great Lights” — the Square and the Compass. Together, these three comprise the “Furniture” of the Lodge.(7) Blue Lodge Masons are taught that the significance of the Square is to remind them of honesty in their dealings with other men as well as the necessity of defending the honor of the teachings and ceremonies of the Lodge.(8) The Compass, on the other hand, designates the “circumscription of the heart,” and serves to teach Masons to exercise temperance and the control of their desires.(9)

The Square represents the female (passive) generative principle, the earth, and the baser, sensual nature; and the Compass represents the male (active) generative principle, the sun/heavens, and the higher, spiritual nature. The Compass, arranged above the Square, symbolizes the (male) Sun, impregnating the passive (female) Earth with its life-producing rays. The true meanings, then are two fold: the earthly (human) representations are of the man and his phallus, and the woman with her receptive eteis (vagina). The cosmic meaning is that of the active Sun (deity, the Sun-god) from above, imparting life into the passive Earth (deity, the earth/fertility goddess) below and producing new life.(10)

Counterparts of these two deities can also be found in countless other occult-based world religions and traditions as well, all represented by the sun and the moon (and/or the earth).(13) These include Osiris and Isis in Egyptian mythology; Mahadeva, or Shiva, and Bhavani, or Kali in India; Dionysis and Rhea in Greek mythology.

The Male/Female Dualism of the Masonic Deity

In 1868, the Supreme Council of the Ancient and Accepted Rite of Lusanne revealed the true identity of the The ancient Greeks and Romans worshipped the Generative Principle under the symbol of the phallus. “Freemasonry proclaims as it has ever proclaimed from its origin, the existence of a Creative Principle, under the name of Great Architect of the Universe.”(28) Albert Pike further explained:

Albert Pike was certainly not alone in tracing the theology of Freemasonry back to the phallic worship of the pagan cults of the past. In his book Symbolism of Freemasonry, Albert Mackey also observed:

Phallus representation of the virile member [the male sex organ]… was venerated as a religious symbol very universally by the ancients. It was one of the modifications of sun-worship, and was a symbol of the fecundating [impregnating] power of that luminary.(30)

Elsewhere, Mackey wrote:

The Phallus was in imitation of the male generative organ. It was represented usually by a column which was surmounted by a circle at its base, intended for the eteis or female generative organ. This union of the phallus and the eteis… was intended by the ancients as a type of the prolific powers of nature which they worshipped under the united form of the active or male principle and the passive or female principle.(31)

In conclusion, Martin Wagner observed:

This creative or generative principle is that mysterious force or energy which renews the earth in springtime, and quickens all animated nature; that energy, force, or power which perpetually dying, renews itself in new, similar yet different forms…. This dynamic, procreative, productive power or energy in nature and especially in man maintaining a perpetual self-identity, Freemasonry conceives of as the divine nature, as the deity immanent in nature, and it is this life force or energy that it deifies, venerates and worships under the name of Great Architect of the Universe
