TITLE: SEEING INTO THE DEEP PAST TO PERCEIVE VAST AND GRAND PATTERNS or THE CAPTURING OF VISIONS OF REMOTE AND HIDDEN SOURCES
So deep the roots of karma, and sometimes when it is only cleared on surface levels it can grow back and then we find ourselves once again in an old pattern. This degree has an instinct for going deep into the self or any problem or complex of circumstances to really contact the source of it. This can give a whole new perspective on reality, and eventually loosen the energetic knot that has bound us.
Negatively this degree may manifest a profound and utter detachment from the physical world — vast perception that inhibits the ability to choose or to act.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “The completion of a large Persian rug.” It is a joy to come to the end of a long, arduous task, and the truth is, every minute of our lives is just that – the completion of a process that has been going on so long that its beginnings are far beyond memory’s normal capacity. This degree carries the precious truth that every moment is complete in and of itself, and is full of the richness and abundance of a grand and tremendous history. It personifies cosmic perspective carried to the most glorious and nth extent.
Pleiadian Symbol: A man in a tall hat is reading omens in the smoke from an altar. Ability to perceive cosnic energies at work in even the subtlest and faintest of phenomena.
Azoth Symbol: People sleeping as they travel near the speed of light. The ability to be completely allowing of rapid change. Trusting that one is on course and that the destination will be reached.
Seed degree: 27 Pisces. A spider searching its web. (Omega Symbol). By looking at what we have drawn to ourselves karmically we can perceive the depths of our own past.
A ritual sand painting. (Chandra Symbol). When we let go of attachments to permanence, we are able to do what we need to do and finish what we have started.
Fulfillment degree: 23 Virgo. A library is burning. A man therein continues to read. (Omega Symbol). When we sense the vast chain of events of which we are a part, we attain eventually an unshakable patience.
Giant cacti blooming in the desert. (Chandra Symbol). The finishing of long and arduous projects brings a reawakening of life in the midst of bleakness.
The man had no trouble traveling in the time machine, but he did find that the camera he carried always disappeared when he took it with him into the past. It seemed that the camera was afraid of the past — or at least that’s what the man felt from it right before he turned on the time machine and the camera seemed to shiver before it disappeared.
A certain most clever alchemist told him, though, that if the man were willing to work long and hard at learning from him, that he might be able to master the technique of shining light out of his eyes. “How will this help me to photograph the past, though?” asked the man.
“When you return with what you have seen in the past you may then gaze onto photographic paper, for the light from your eyes will be light you have carried with you from the past. I’m not absolutely sure of this, but this is what certain spirits, who are highly credible, have told me.”
The man worked for many years to master this technique, and through his devoted discipline and diligence he learned to make his eyes glow with an unearthly brightness.
When he felt he was ready the man rode his time machine far into the past and gazed on a flock of dinosaurs as they stood in a pool and ate ferns.
He immediately shut his eyes and returned to the present without opening them, and when he entered the dark room he had built he felt for the photographic paper in the dark and opened his eyes to it. His eyes glowed onto the paper with a strange light that seemed vastly old — like the light of stars.
Placing the paper in the developer he found that yes, the dinosaurs had appeared there on the paper, sharp and clear in all their primal beauty.
The problem, though, is that no one else could see them.
