This is the second of three posts. A Tarot reflection just after midsummer this year opened opened up a contemplation including and far transcending my enquiry into the odd local event which triggered it. Those private and universal threads continue to flow. The Hanging Man and the Tower (here reflecting one another) are traditionally the least popular cards in the deck; but what profound alchemical treasure they reveal …
Journal, 27 June 2018
I am reminded of God’s speech – Key 16 is called the House of God. Its Hebrew letter PEH symbolises the mouth. In any element, any detail of life, the Voice speaks; not often do I fall silent to hear the speech through thunder or through the dew. Two of these Keys specify the Sound of God: 20 and 16. Their pathways connect Netzach, Hod and Malkuth in the lightning-flash to earth. The instant the Voice is “seen”, there is no room or time for analytical mind on the Tree. Thought collapses into Source.
An oracle is a cosmic vocal cord through which a situation under review resonates in unison with many others. The “wiring” is through the cellular membrane or auric interface. That which seems to part our fields unites them. Part the waves and kiss the lips!
Each situation has a mouth which speaks if it is heard. My Hanging Man tumbles to hear what is inside the Tower. The Tower is an inverted well. Inside the Tower, as butterfly in chrysalis, is the woman by the well in Key 17 (her sign is Aquarius): the interior Stars. When the Hanging Man dives through patriarchal-system collapse, s/he rediscovers the feminine root in earth, the forgotten and begotten Mother. We as humankind move through this process individually and collectively. Discovery is sanctified through the open honesty of the Lovers: their freedom of being. They nourish but do not impinge. The interior Wisdom of Solomon shines through the cracking crust of fancy.
The Hanging Man is Tarot’s Messiah – a grain of yeast to leaven the bread. The Aquarian dispensation no longer enthrones Messiah as an individual example. This outgrown concept breaks down throughout the world, and thus the present chaos, pain, tension and pollution of faith in the outer crust.
Arcana 12 and 16
Messiah is a collective point of omnipresence. Messiah occupies a certain frequency or waveband in our consciousness. Any of us may restrain our mind’s mountains and cliffs of fall, and enter the Messianic waveband for an instant or a cosmic hour, whether knowing or not. No impure ambition can find this seat. The supreme sacrifice of individuality was made. Within the resonance of that inner plane sacrifice, dwell today’s martyrs in the world. All of those who fought for freedom and were tortured, displaced and killed empower the deep-seated Change in humankind. Hallowed in the heart, their spiritual strength gestates a living reality.
What is Messiah? the kindling point of transformation – the latent flame within the wood – the trumpet note the child hears – conversion of the lion’s roar into melody.
What is the human heart’s desire? –
to experience each phase of its evolution fully and completely.
“O the mind, mind has mountains; cliffs of fall
Frightful, sheer, no-man-fathomed. Hold them cheap
May who ne’er hung there. Nor does long our small
Durance deal with that steep or deep. Here! creep,
Wretch, under a comfort serves in a whirlwind: all
Life death does end and each day dies with sleep.
O the mind, mind has mountains; cliffs of fall
Frightful, sheer, no-man-fathomed O my dear …”
Gerard Manley Hopkins
Cliffs of Fall – two versions. Many years ago I was commissioned a painting for Hopkins’ poem. The first of the two versions above was the initial sketch. While doing the painting, a chance brush stroke in the sky suggested a seal’s head – which utterly transformed the whole concept from fear to wonder, breaking through earth’s crust into an inner light. The original painting this happened with, got lost, and i only have a poor photo of it. The above version was a reconstruction of the original.
Let us form an alchemical vessel, a Grail cup. The Firing of the Tower is transformative heat – the bellows and the oven. In alchemy the bellows are the breath; the oven is our body, the temple at work. The Tower which devastates the ignorant signals a gentle presence: the Star, the woman by the well within.
Not by force is the soul plexus transmuted, but through the feathery warmth of hen’s breast upon the egg: an inexplicable miracle of the secret fire within our blood and in all phenomena. You, we, I originate from a Solar star; from galactic stars: the core of Gaia within our earth. We know the way Home.
In my experience, whenever I see and walk the Tower path, I hear the speech of the illumined Maestri, of Master R, in ways in which my interior is encoded to receive it.
I hear it unexpectedly. It confirms what is taught and envisioned in “New Earth” circles about Ascension: a process of profound and all-inclusive embodiment. As I drop my centre of gravity from head (where it is “out to lunch”) into heart, Sol plexus, dantien and soles of feet and hands, so the Consciousness apparently ascends; the human sensory spectrum gains height, breadth and depth. The media belief system and its marketing puts up a colossal resistance to it. In the cosmic clock, this is natural. As human species we are designed to move as osmosis through the tree to solar light: through resistant ground.
The Genius of the Cell lies within its Membrane
The Gene Keys transmission says of the fear-based mono-celled outlook on life: “The thinking goes that if the brain is in the nucleus and the nucleus contains the instructions, then the instructions control the cell and therefore us. However, quantum biology has discovered something very remarkable that directly challenges this. The brain of the cell does not reside within the nucleus after all, but in the cellular membrane which provides an interface with the environment. In a nutshell, this means that life is designed to be cooperative rather than competitive. This new biological view makes enormous sense when considered alongside quantum physics, which holds that all of life is interrelated and holistic rather than separative. In the old view, we humans are the victim of our selfish genes; in the new view there are no victims, only a huge interconnected and interdependent cosmos …
“… If it were true that deep within the nucleus of every cell a selfish drive were paramount, then it is highly unlikely that any two cells could ever cooperate, since their very design would drive them to compete. The genius of the cell and its true brain must therefore lie where the quantum biologists say it lies – within the cell’s membrane. We know that the membrane allows the single cell to respond to its environment. But it goes one stage further than this – it must allow its DNA to be INFLUENCED by its environment. This is the foundational principle of quantum biology, and it is regarded as nothing short of heresy in the face of current mainstream biological dogma.
“… Innovation is built into life. In other words, life itself is designed to transcend its own initial programming (Difficulty at the Beginning/I Ching 3rd hexagram) and discover new and higher forms of consciousness. Beyond selfishness and chaos lies cooperation and innovation. Innovation only occurs when you truly begin to think for yourself … which is relatively uncommon. In order to be truly innovative, you have to attain a very high frequency that allows you to see beyond the collective worldview.”
“Gene Keys – Unlocking the Higher Purpose hidden in your DNA” (2013)
Solomon’s young gazelle in the Song of Songs leaps through fields, stands by our window, looks through the lattice … The Lover’s Key in the Tarot pictorially encodes the process quoted above. Look carefully, to discover it within.
In Gene Key 3’s programming partner, the 50th Siddhi, “the gathering of the Illuminati, the chosen ones into our legends, dreams and even conspiracy theories … is a commonly misunderstood ideal. The term indeed refers to a higher evolution of celestial beings or ascended masters, but these beings are not separate from us. They are our higher nature personified. As your higher bodies transmute your lower instincts and emotions, so you come into the frequency field of their higher harmony. This field draws you into itself and gradually transforms your cellular DNA into its highest mode of functioning. We now live in the time of … unprecedented planetary change. As the awakening becomes progressively more widespread, the awakened higher bodies of individuals will come into a heightened communal harmony that quickens the frequency of the whole of humanity. Eventually the Illumined will assimilate all human beings into its ranks and humankind will finally experience itself as a single unified cosmic being.”
Richard Rudd, 50th Gene Key
Lighthouse keepers are in touch with each other through their lamps across the world’s seas, assisting ships.
Now draw in the threads.
This Tarot oracle (see top of page) is a direct response to a fight which broke out in the street, and my being brought to witness the same party in a different spot, a week later.
What is my work within it? I am a bee. I extracted and extract honey. What is here is elsewhere. The event felt like a trigger, a turning point. I worried about my friend’s safety and the hornet he aroused. But that is on the accustomed surface. In truth, when I dived into the event and asked the oracle – the clear lake – it shows a local eruption and a deluge of the powers of Light like a rain to quench that blaze. My role in this? Allow Consciousness making waves with the Guardians to see through shambles. It digs down deep into my source through the mud, and finds the pure water. The priestess of Isis is the breath of the sea at night.
Added to this, is the vivid impression of my mother’s flower of life imprinted on the hills and woods and fields around Nether Stowey; before very long, she will have died, but the fragile paradox in her descent remains powerful in the air – her loving association with this landscape – a passion of fulfilment. Similarly I felt my late father’s in Somerset and in Devon – his lanes and hills have his flower within them, they are in my eye beholding those which are in his, which belongs to them.
Today’s Zodiac Gene Key is 52, the Mountain: keeping still: the Restraint contains the fullness.
The oracle never tells me “what to do”. The activity flowing from it is self explanatory – watch what takes shape following the oracle, and what is seen. The oracle is a lake in a hill, (I Ching 31, the Wooing Influence); the activity is the stream flowing from it down into the valleys.
This oracle has double Lovers – as above so below – and the red lion restrained through refinement of strength. The dew of heaven falls onto a fiery tower. The tower is a phallic organ of speech. The Messianic dew descends, trumpeted by Gabriel and tempered by Mikael.
Something significant is unfolding, transpersonally. The wavebreak of a crackling tower yet reveals to me the Well below it, and the maiden.
The oracle speaks out loud – through 20, 8 and 16 – and the woman with the lion does not restrain or stifle the voice, she guides it. His voice comes from where her womb is. A long-term sexual revolution falls into the world, reversing many ways that things were. Revolution is a watch-word of Master R, who exemplifies inner revolution.
The Lovers are doubled and the Lion woman holds her ground between the sizzle of water and fire. In the Lovers’ sky are clouds: the steam.
With these thoughts comes the bulky silence of the Mountain over Mountain: hexagram 52 in the I Ching and gene keys.
Silence facilitates transmission: the serpent power of a small tsunami through the sea.
It is the way of all energy to find its restful accommodation – for water to find its level. It goes to where there is room. Whatever happens in life, there is energy or force, and this energy may be guided interiorly – like the woman with lion’s roar – to find a space to expand and settle. My first insight with the oracle was: don’t in any way react further, or stand in its way. This event has a truth of its own, needing expression. Listen to the world, not with media but with ear to the ground.
My second insight is similar. When an energy explodes, it travels towards a lake where it may disperse, a room to accommodate its expansion. Do not impede its ultimate peace. The principle is ju-jitsu, martial art, the real meaning of Yeshua’s other cheek. Let the violent intention disperse itself. Yet trusting the camel, tie the leg!
I believe some situations contain personal traps where a violent intention impedes itself and loses juice. Provocation from the other side may release it again, which makes some persons habitually violent – their cages disable them.
It is wise to give a walking wound a wide berth. He does not know what he does, or what drives him. The personal ego’s search for justice is a rats’ tail race. Compassion him and let him be. Be still.
It is rather wonderful how in the Gene Keys Zodiac ‘wheel’, over the time of midsummer Solstice, the Mountain stillness follows the Florescence of 15, the “ever flowering spring“. Falling into the situation’s heart, disregard the characters and their problems; enter the flower within the mountain. What matters on the stage is here today … and gone tomorrow.
This too shall pass.
Cultivate perennially, the flower in the mountain. With a loving heart, the miracle is omniscient in all the atoms.
