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.
Krishna and the Flute
A dear friend of mine made me aware of Krishna in modern India, and I am impressed by the life and devotion.
I got the inspiration that we in the western world also know Krishna, but we know him as the Holy Spirit, or rather we know the name, we don’t understand the Spirit.
And when thinking about it, I realized that I should have known it beforehand, as, in my understanding, Jesus became the Holy Spirit. Following Steiner incarnated Krishna as Jesus.
The disciples ask Jesus if he needs to die and he answers that if he don’t die, the Comforter wouldn’t appear, the Holy Spirit wouldn’t appear.
When Jesus died, he entered the death world, the astral world, and the astral world is where the Holy Spirit works the clockwork of the Earth. Jesus is the top of an Iceberg, physically he is a man, but spiritually a god.
So the outer teacher Krishna or Jesus became the inner teacher, the Comforter or Holy Spirit.
Krishna and the Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit is known as the Wind in the Willows and Krishna is known through his flute, the melody behind life, the consciousness behind the physical world, and if we listen carefully, are conscious about the details in our life, we can hear the melody, see the trace of small miracles everywhere.
Krishna, the Holy Spirit, is the teacher of humankind, although we often believe he’s a trickster, as we don’t understand the path our life takes.
Steiner compares the teaching of Arjuna by Krishna with the teachings of the Holy Spirit through sct. Paul, and that is really the same being, first as an outer teacher, later as an inner teacher. See The Bhagavad Gita and the Epistles of Paul. Lecture 5 of 5.
When Saul have the Christ vision he gets blinded by the light of Krishna/Holy Spirit, it enters into him, he now have the wisdom of Krishna, the Holy Spirit, when he can see again he sees with the understanding of the Holy Spirit, Saulus became Paulus.
A dialog from Gita Govinda about Krishna’s real purpose of being born, to establish dharma, to be the comforter of humanity, the Holy Spirit.
Radha: But some day you will leave Vrindavan?
Krishna: Yes, I have to. I will have to move towards my real purpose of being born.
Radha: What is your real purpose of being born?
Krishna: To establish `dharma’ so that right can triumph over wrong.
Radha: What was the purpose of your time spent in Vrindavan? Especially with me.
Krishna: To teach people the weapon with which they can triumph good over evil.
Radha: Which is?
Krishna: Love. Only Love can conquer everything. When you fight with Love, no one gets hurt; not even the ones you’re fighting with.
Radha: So will all your wars be fought with Love?
Krishna: I will try my best to do that. If it doesn’t work, then I may have to use other means so good can triumph over evil, but personally, I won’t lift any other weapon apart from Love and counseling; but I may encourage others to do so if all else fails.
Radha: (Radha is surprised) What will you “take” from them?
Krishna: In return for their partnerships, I will “take” from them, their most painful & difficult karma.
Radha: What kind of painful & difficult karma?
Krishna: Pain, sadness, loneliness, grief, poverty… anything. And I’ll replace it with love.
Krishna: I will take brunt of their most difficult karma, so they can lead a good life. I will make their life easier.
That is what is meant when Jesus dies to take our sin on his shoulders, by dying he leaves Vrindavan and enters the death world, our inner astral world, and becomes the Comforter, the Holy Spirit, helping us bear the burden of karma.

The twelve holy nights before Christmas
This symbolizes the development of man from the creation and until the birth of Christ, when man had descended the deepest into the physical world. This period is called Mars in esoteric language.
It’s about the lower Abyss, the lesser Chemical Wedding, the union of soul and body. This is old European folk tradition and Rosicrucian esoteric knowledge.
The night after the 24’th is the birth of the Son of Man, Jesus, when we were the deepest into the physical, and he showed the way up of the Abyss.
The twelve holy nights after Christmas
This symbolizes the ascent of man from the deepest penetration into the physical world, from being mastered by the physical he now becomes master of the physical. This period is called Mercury in esoteric language.
