TITLE: COMMUNING WITH THE COSMIC
Others may think what you are doing is impractical, or even unintelligible, but there is definitely a a method in your madness. You are looking to connect with spiritual realms, whether you know it or not, and will only be fulfilled if you carry on your seeking regardless of the judgments and criticisms of others.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A bodiless head asleep on the beach.” Far, far away is the Kingdom of the Fairies of which the bodiless head dreams. So silent and strangely passive an image for the sign Aries. But the sea is never still and dreams are afoot and the seeming stillness is an illusion. And we come to know, ultimately that the Kingdom of the Fairies is within and that all searches, no matter what their outer agendas, are quests to discover the self.
Pleiadian Symbol: An ancient crone and her shadow talking to each other. Respect for the limitless nature of one’s own wisdom.
Azoth Symbol: An ancient culture is transporting gigantic stones. Gargantuan efforts carried out carefully and patiently. This work is no more difficult than the work of the man in the Omega Symbol.
Seed degree: Libra 13. As he matures, a man’s paintings become simpler and simpler. (Omega Symbol). An increasing purity and potency of self-expression impels one to yearn toward brighter, lighter frequencies.
Men and women in white towels in a steam bath talking and sweating profusely. (Chandra Symbol). When we release so much that is pent up we come to a point of relaxed, meditative silence.
Fulfillment degree: Leo 2. On the surface of water, flecks of dust floating. (Omega Symbol). The Kingdom of the Fairies is found. All becomes light and floating.
A horn of brass to be used as a hearing aid. (Chandra Symbol). In the meditative silence by the sea all voices of the universe become magnified.
The terrain is becoming more and more desolate and rocky. And the voice of the stream along which the man is riding his horse seems increasingly crystalline. The man feels he can hear directions in its voice, telling him that, yes, he is on the right track. The stream becomes smaller and smaller dwindling to nearly nothing until the man sees that it is being wept from a tiny pearl of incredible beauty that lies on the ground. Swallow me, whispers the voice, and I shall take you to the land you seek.
It was not until Irnad’s birth that, trough his far-seeing, the mystery of how the circle of Giant stones know as Hengestone and the many other great stone circles that are found all over Aab came to be erected.
Irnad said, “You look for a single method, but through my voyages into the past I have seen that the ancients had many technique at their disposal — sometimes they enlisted the forces of lightning, at other times violent circular winds came to their aid, sometimes through special levers and the power of men and horses, and sometimes through the singing of specially designed songs to make the stones light. Also through meditation.
“And, of course, sometimes they simply explained to the stones their intentions, and stone, being more reasonable and willing to give assistance than many realize, were then most happy to arrange themselves according to expectation.”
