This sketch shows God’s hand (four-dimensional) dipped through our flat-earth pool. The flat earth human observes, astonished, five apparently unrelated islands appear … move around … and disappear – and bases his/her scientific/statistical/political data on that.
I have been writing in my other blog, about Tetrahedrons and the way their sacred geometry IS our natural life form.
Firstly here is a cube:
Those same 6 pyramids inverted into the cube of life, converge to their shared apex, the cube’s centre point.
The cube’s 6 sides circumscribe the six points of the Tetrahedral Star of Solomon. Never is there an end to contemplating the six-sided solar photon, the source of life and of our being.
Through the lattice of Solomon – the interwoven tetrahedrons – is expressed every nuance of the king and bride: the Song of Solomon.
“Listen! my lover! here he comes,
leaping across the mountains, bounding over the hills.
My lover is a gazelle or young stag:
Lo! He stands behind my wall,
gazing through my window,
peering through the lattice …”
(song of Solomon)
The Red Book
In his Red Book, Jung gave birth like a mother to the firebird, and lay shattered, a broken shell, as the firebird “cruelly, unthinkingly, spread its wings and flew up into infinite space … the emptiness of the depths opened beneath me.”
“He who wanted to go down with the sun found me through his downgoing. I became his nocturnal mother who incubated the egg of the beginning. And he rose up renewed, reborn to greater splendour. While he rises however, I go down …
“I lay there like a child bearer cruelly mauled and bleeding her life into the child, uniting life and death in a dying glance, the day’s mother, the night’s prey. My God had drunk my highest power into him …
“What remains of human nature when the God has become mature and has seized all power? Everything incompetent, powerless, eternally vulgar, adverse and unfavourable – reluctant, diminishing, exterminating, everything absurd … the God suffers when man does not accept his darkness. Consequently, man must have a suffering God so long as they suffer from evil … …
“If the God draws near, your essence starts to seethe, and the black mud of the depths stirs up.
“Man stands between emptiness and fullness.”
C.G.Jung, The Red Book
His Individuation included the condition of the Dark Womb.
I felt, reading this passage, that the God jumped out of the tiny scientific boxes, more than a century ago, leaving the greater human element that believes in the boxes, destitute for the eternally vulgar.
The polarity of our time, is the eternally vulgar with the Immanent Reality. The great Phoenix flew up into the cosmos and is everywhere, but the tiny boxed ones cannot see it. So they go on with their inventive technology and their measurements. My smaller mind goes on filing complaints. But nowadays, having grasped that I do, I complain less.
For instance, it feels just fresh to have bathed and washed my hair – as good as preening firebird’s feathers. This morning, reading Jung, the God, the divine fire bird is EVERYWHERE, awaiting the tiny quantum leap from the dark blind dream.
Perhaps the Quantum physics discovery in the 1920s & 30s (during Nazi nadir) was and is the actual Divine Order. It rose like a djinn from the bottle. Most of the shut-I minds think it is a separate science, however enigmatic; they do not live the paradox or make the connection with their inner self in the Quantum … they are still in bud.
Einstein was working on Relativity at the same time as Jung’s Red Book: both of them Swiss. Around them seethed the European tide of carnage and slaughter.
For me in the 1980s, Frijof Capra’s Tao of Physics gave me the key! At once I saw the subatomic interactions in life, and in my soul and connectivity, back and forth in time, the Divine Aquarian. But Fred’s friend Professor Ernst (a physicist) blinked and scoffed: “it is amusing.” He was a bitter man, afreud of jung … he couldn’t connect, he was an expert and he made me feel a fool. I painted his daughter’s portrait in daffodil yellow.
The age of Aquarius, the Great Water Bearer, is still opening. The Divine Aquariel is in all our being, throughout our skies and instruments, and in the soles of my tired feet. All it takes, is to stop blinking for a moment … let in the power of NOW. But the human condition is attached to the drama of pain, pollution and platform soles out there – a parallel Reality.
What to do, here and now? Keep the home fire alight, relieve pain wherever it is present. Physician, to thy Self be true; and truth travels along the wave. Some of us have a gift to relieve pain in others, and some of us are in training for it. I need to learn to listen, rather than to advise or fix. Where there is deep relaxation, the current flows naturally. It is transpersonal. We humans isolate sex from life. When there is no conditioning, all is life, where I come from and am. I am seed, orgasm, birth, embryo.
“My lifetimes are not open ended.
In my molecular chemistry and in my genes,
the compounds curve or close
into chains or rings.
“The law comes back
to planets around the sun –
time’s fullness passes through
their orbiting plane, as space.
“The Law comes back to Nature
where the dragon’s head eats tail
to guard the egg
our scientists of little brain would pick to pieces.”
