TITLE: AWARENESS OF THE GUIDING AND SUPPORTIVE MOTIVES INHERENT IN NATURE
Omega Symbol: A man attuning to the vibrations of a myriad of different flowers.
There are so many energies in the world which you might perceive and experience. The question is, which ones do you need, and can you focus on them without being distracted. At worst, you may hide from yourself by becoming a mere observer of life. At best you can feel what it is you need and are willing to fearlessly move toward it.
Pleiadian Symbol: A faint pink flame flickering at the top of an ancient oak tree.
You realize that love is the ultimate source of power, and so no matter how complicated, dense or heavy things may become you have a way of always crowning them with lightness, which gives all you do a gentleness manifesting in a powerful, steady, and yet always soft and kind manner.
Chandra Symbol: A tunnel created by trees.
The tunnel is leading us from one place to another, and the trees are the forces of nature protecting us as we make this journey. Nature is always ready to assist us in evolving, and the vibrations of all the different flowers can help us to support those aspects of ourselves that need healing and/or empowerment. This degree is about finding a way forward through opening to what the spirits of nature have to offer, and even if it doesn’t consciously ask these forces for help, they are there working on a subliminal level with the person who has this degree.
Azoth Symbol: After having read a poem many times a man finally sees a deeper meaning in it.
Patient and clear listening leading to a refinement of one’s understanding. You know that in the seemly known the unknown is always lurking, and that all territory can become new territory if we’re willing to expand our mind and re-experience it.
Seed Degree: Sagittarius – 27
In the night, a man uncovers himself to feel the cool air. (Omega Symbol). When we allow ourselves to be vulnerable to subtle energies we are then able to experience their effects more fully and understand their nature.
Siamese twins talking to each other. (Chandra Symbol). Becoming more and more aware of our own dualistic nature, and allowing the two sides of ourselves to communicate openly, we find our evolution greatly facilitated by the forces of nature.
Fulfillment Degree: Aquarius – 7
Someone turns back and looks again: the mountain has disappeared. (Omega Symbol). As we become more sensitive to the forces of nature, we realize more and more clearly that the seeming substantiality of our world is ultimately an illusion.
A woman burning a book of black magic. (Chandra Symbol). To recognize the selfishness of the ego helps us to overcoming any an all blockages to our forward movement, and to tune in to those forces who are always ready and willing to assist in our evolution.
Alfardo Bartan spent his life in the woodlands and forests, befriending all the flowers he might discover. He spoke of their personalities, their likes and dislikes, their powers and their secrets. As he grew older he ate nothing but flowers, saying that the flowers had asked to become a part of him. Flowers, spring water, sunlight and sleep were all that sustained him.
Toward the end of his life his aura glowed with shimmering colors that reminded those who sought him out of the northern lights, or the colors that shimmer from snow on a clear day. Bartan told people that he had become a flower himself, a flower that mutated at will into any and all flowers. Seekers came to him and swarmed about him like bees, drinking in the nectar of his wisdom, and those suffering from illnesses of both body and spirit were taken to him and bathed in his emanations.
Sometimes he said that he allowed the flowers to sing their songs through him, which were whispered melodies, irregular and ever changing and like the voices of birds, though more delicate and elusive.
When he died those present watched his body slowly evaporate as the surrounding woodlands and their blooming herbs and trees took on a brightness that filled the air with a glow that seemed not of this world.
It is in that meadow were he passed that the Flower Institute of Peth was built, which is said to have the most beautiful gardens to be found anywhere in Aab.
