(Degree Angel: DAMABIAH (da-MA-bee-YAH) Fear of God, Fountain of Wisdom)
TITLE: EXUBERANT IMMERSION IN THE MAGIC OF EXISTENCE or THE ABILITY TO EMBRACE FEARS TO HEAL THEM
Definiteness is always confining or limiting in some way. This degree has the ability to create an expansiveness through indefiniteness, an openness that provides a field in which the imagination can thrive. This also allows the contents of the subconscious to come forward, with a consequent purging and healing of the emotional body. Most of this usually happens in a highly subtle, unconscious way.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A young boy joyously kisses a fat old lady.” This degree loves life as it is, and has a zest for encountering things as they are and then moving forth from there, by bettering what can be bettered, but accepting what is not likely to change. It can be contented, even happy, even in circumstances which are restrictive and lacking of opportunity, for it knows within itself that whatever is there is what needs to be there for now, and so without expectations it is free to relish what is.
The message it has to impart is that when we have little, a little becomes a lot when we can truly alow ourselves to appreciate it.
Pleiadian Symbol: Wild birds flocking around temple ruins.
Azoth Symbol: A man using colored lights to read a palimpsest.
Seed degree: 10 Leo. A man who sees stars invisible to others. (Omega symbol). When we are able to perceive that which others do not notice it induces us to bring a subtly of intensity and feeling into all we do.
A man putting olive oil all over his body. (Chandra symbol). To love and nurture our physical self stimulates us to love others for who they are irrespective of their outer appearances.
Fulfillment degree: 24 Leo. A drowning man turns into a fish. (Omega Symbol). When we deeply encounter our fears we find we are able to merge with them to the point that they support rather than threaten us.
Sunrise over Stonehenge. (Chandra Symbol). The new expressing vibrant love for the old brings new live to ancient truths.
“The Graven Seal,” which is the only novel of Mareesh Entar, is curious in that even though it has a plot which is rather ininteresting and appears on the surface to be flawed in its conception produces, in those who read it, the eeriest of feelings and most curious of emotions. When various readers attempt to describe the mood it creates in them most are at a loss for words, and no two people seem to have the same feelings about its various scenes.
Alchemists have, for decades, attempted to explain this phenomenon, for they know that something has been carefully and cleverly hidden in this book which eludes discovery. One old seer says that it is the only book he has read for years, and has read it many times, each time seeming to be totally different from the last. Shameek Demar points to it as proof of the ineffable nature of art.
