tITLE: RETURNING TO CORE
There are things in life that magnetize you. Sometimes you don’t even know what they are, but will feel compelled to keep going, almost like a bloodhound trailing a scent. If you try to deny this urge to seek you will experience inner discord until you give into it. You need to be free enough of all commitments to follow these inner urges, if you are to fulfill your destiny.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “An old lady selling bunches of violets on a street corner.” What you have to offer the world may seem simple, modest, even common, but has about it the energy of spiritual regeneration and can help others to re-attune to their evolutionary direction – often without even knowing that it is your energy that has catalyzed this. You carry a wisdom that is more profound than it may seem on the surface and which helps exceedingly to remind others of why they’re here. This truly concerns coming back to the center of one’s labyrinth.
Pleiadian Symbol: A child building a little sand castle on the beach. Innocent creativity with no concern for implication or endurance, just as the violets of the Chandra Symbol may fade, though they are always fresh in one’s memory.
Azoth Symbol: A sage looking up toward the summit of a mountain. Perception of the possibility of reaching higher states of being. Here the gaze is upward — in the Omega symbol the path is inward.
Seed degree: Virgo 8. People dragging a beached whale back into the ocean. (Omega Symbol). Sensing our own deepest needs we move through all the twistings and turnings of ourselves toward our center.
A man thinking up names for colors. (Chandra Symbol). Trying to express the subtleties of our vision we eventually give up complexity and opt for a sweetly simple giving of upliftment and beauty to others.
Fulfillment degree: Scorpio 4. An albino woman unaffected by the rays of the Sun. (Omega Symbol). When we find our meaning and purpose deeply and completely, the ego falls away and we no longer need to defend ourselves against the goading influence of selfishness.
A loud roar as a tornado approaches. (Chandra Symbol). Innocently and simply offering what we have to the world draws to us forces to purge our karma.
The labyrinth is just a pattern on a floor, drawn with lines to indicate the corridors. As she walks them she can see the center, knows that at any moment she might step over the lines, ignore the labyrinth’s patttern and move directly to the labyrinth’s heart.
But she’s enjoying the twists and turns, enjoying the long journey. And besides, she sees up ahead a lodging house where she can spend the night before continuing her adventure.
Timir Azard, ancient sage of Aab was often seen by climbers on mountain peaks, where he sat in the snow or among the desolate rocks, wearing no hat, dressed only in his pale blue robes which seemed cut from the fabric of the sky and which the wild mountain winds whipped around him as he gazed far across the land.
I asked him one time why it was that he had never been seen scaling the peaks he frequented. “It is too laborious for me to climb, ” he answered. “But I look up there often, and my vision takes me there. Life is so much easier when you truly look, and can really see.”
