A friend of mine mentioned that we had sworn fealty in a previous incarnation by making an x-like cross with our lower arms.
This sounded interesting and I have always been fascinated by the Saint Andrews Cross, also called Cross Decussata or the Saltire Cross. X is the 22nd letter of the Greek alphabet, Chi.
But I have never looked into the Andrews cross, I needed the inspiration, but now the leads came from everywhere, the puzzle pieces found each other.
It’s known all over the world, and it’s a central symbol for the development on Earth, for God, Adam Kadmon, Christ, the Mother and Father, for the two powers, form and idea, and in their crossing point life appears.
With some inspiration I understood it was the cross in the fish symbol, the ichthus, and I understood that the ichthus symbol was showing the first half of the Earth period, from creation to the death of Jesus in the physical world and resurrection of Christ in our inner.
That again moved on to the next understanding, that the infinity symbol showed the full development on Earth, from Alfa to Omega.
All creation takes place by the One becoming Two. After Pralaya, the cosmic night, comes the Manvantara, the cosmic day of manifestation. In the manifestation separates the conscious from the unconscious, and in the focus point between darkness and light new consciousness develops out of the darkness. See Esoteric History of Man.
The darkness is developed as a vehicle for the new to be developed, and the new soul seed is prepared to enter the vehicle. In the center of the æon, when the vehicle is ready, the universe turns inside out, the light from being outside the vehicle becomes the inside.
The gods dies in the outer world and resurrects in our inner, creating a new cosmos leaving the old to die.
The Infinity Symbol
And all creation ends by the Two becoming One, we enter Pralaya again. At the end of the development phase humanity raises together with Maitreya Buddha.
Infinity Symbol – Lemniscate
It’s interesting that alpha matches the form of the ichthus and the likeness between omega and the lemniscate is just as interesting, omega symbolizes the full development.
My friend made me aware that it looked like eyes and I thought about the Eye of Horus: .
The symbol for Taurus, the bull, is also much like the ichthus or left part of the lemniscate: .
From Aleph to Tav
Lets look at the Hebrew letters for alpha and omega, aleph and tav.
Aleph in its oldest forms shows the head of a Bull, the first more naturalistic and the second more stylistic, but both forms are in the likeness of the ichthus. Tav in it’s oldest forms are like the crossing.
Here we have the history of Aleph and our A:
Bull, Lion and Eagle
We have three periods, the period of the Bull, the time of Shiva and Lucifer, the teachers of humanity. Then follows the period of the Lion, the time of Krishna, Christ and Horus, leading toward the first real initiation of a human, or rather two. Then follows the future period of the Eagle, the time of Christian Rosenkreutz or Maitreya Buddha, humanity have now become their own teachers.
Alfa as a Bull and Omega as an Eagle, the omega have even two wings, man gets wings. The central transition as a Lion, the X, the heart and soul of humanity.
The time of the Bull prepared mans physical body as bearer of an I, and the I entered man in the period of the Lion, and the period of the Eagle should make man a spiritual being, but the pioneers of humanity are already working on it here and now.
See more on the Bull: The Age of the Bull.
The Holy Grail is a central symbol known up through time under different names.
The Holy Grail
The grail is symbolized with the triangle pointing down, it’s the microcosm we develop in. Its the lower three hierarchies known as angels, archangels and archai in the Christian terminology.
Here more traditions are combined into one drawing. The ego is the old center of the body from when we were animals, here symbolized with a caterpillar. The day the ego accepts the new center, the ‘I’ of the soul, as a co-worker and not an enemy, the caterpillar dies and resurrects into a butterfly.
In the drawing we have the 4 lower bodies of man. Here the
ages the bodies typically are developed are written for each period. Each period corresponds to a chakra. After 28 we begin developing the higher bodies, the higher chakras.
The grail goes long back, the following picture is an example from a vast Cetho Temple complex that is located on the western slopes of Lawu Mountain, precisely in Gumeng Village, Jenawi District, Karanganyar Regency, Central Java Province.
The Lingga Yoni have strong similarities with the Ankh, the Tree of Life and the Grail, all describing the same reality.
The Lingga Yoni shown in the upper pictures look very much like a chalice when seen from the bottom, but seen from the side the symbolism behind the chalice is more clear. The chalice top is the uterus from where the new universe will grow, fructified by the old spiritual world symbolized by the stalk of the chalice.
Kali is also connected to the lower triangle, the Grail is symbol for the feminine.
In the lower and middle right pictures the Lingga Yoni looks like a chalice with the Sun as the hostie.
Artemis gives prana to all living beings in the physical world, ie that have an etheric body. The Grail is the Life Force behind the created.
From Anna May Triptychon where Joseph of Arimathea fils the Grail
with the blood coming from Jesus.
Artemis symbolizes the Mother, the creator of mankind, but the mother is hidden in most religions, as it was the masculine power that was needed to get man down into the physical. In this figure Apollo, the sun god, is shown hiding the moon god Artemis, mother nature, but she is the main power behind of our development.
Here a number of forms we know the Grail, including the human soul, up left:
The Crown Chakra is also the chalice of the etheric world in which we as physical being lie, as an inverted plant.
