TITLE: CREATING A SPACE FOR THE SPIRITUAL SELF
You have the ability to block out everything you don’t want to look at, and then project onto your reality your own conceptions. When these conceptions are spiritually inspired, you are able to shift reality into a higher vibration. You need to beware, though, of being too much in denial of the challenges and discords of life.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A potter at work.” The white wall is the perfect background on which to clearly see the colors of the rainbows, and likewise the potter is creating vessels which can hold whatever needs to be saved, contained, or protected. This degree seeks to apply itself to tasks that require concentration and focus and also to create environments which can hold and nurture whatever it finds to be of ultimate value. The contrast between the ethereal quality of the colors on the wall versus the tangible and highly physical forming of clay signifies the meeting of both spiritual and physical in this degree’s impulse to protect and support.
Pleiadian Symbol: On a passing boat a flag continually changing its colors and patterns. Finding a way to express the subtleties and mutations the self moves through.
Azoth Symbol: Words seen for an instant on a leaf that suddenly blows away. Catching glimpses of the deeper meaning of things, which triggers spiritual awareness.
Seed degree: 4 Aries. A man destroying a wall as he attempts to eradicate black mold from a house. (Omega Symbol). Breaking down barriers and clearing away the detritus of the past leaves the consciousness free to experience imaginative possibilities.
A cup overflowing with clear water. (Chandra Symbol). Experiencing the gushing of feeling, we seek to form vessels to give it form and store it.
Fulfillment degree: Libra 8. A rare type of honey imbued with magical healing powers. (Omega Symbol). To be receptive to all the colors of the spiritul light is to find a food that can restore harmony.
A vast junkyard. (Chandra Symbol). To fashion vessels to hold what is valuable leaves us with what is left over – life’s trash – which we seek to collect together so that it is out of our way.
The smoothness of a white wall invites illusion. Unmarred, it holds shadows up, so that we may see them more clearly, and allow them to live out their lives as they wax, wane, and change shape in the changing light. Or rainbows may appear and slowly stretch out, as they move over the white, becoming long, like the tails of comets. The light gives us time to take in its colors, to see the seamless, imperceptible way they are born of each other, each one a fire, whose delight is to travel, searching for eyes.
Verbundum trees are extremely rare and no one is sure how long they live, for one has never been known to die. In Autum their leaves turn thousands of different colors and develop fine black lines on their surfaces which turn into dense masses of words which are so tiny as to be almost unreadable. Seers and students come to stand near the tree as the leaves fall, and as wind is in love with Verbundum trees the leaves are never still, but rapidly blow away. And as they do the onlookers find they may read all the words on every leaf. Afterward they cannot remember any of them, but find their knowledge enriched as if a fire never to be extinguished had entered their mind.
