TITLE: SEEING THROUGH SUFFERING INTO THE HOPE OF A GREATER REALITY
In the darkest areas of consciousness and in the cloudiest of situations you sense the potential for purity and clarity. You know deep in your being that the highest ideals are possible to fulfill. Your energy, therefore, is a potent antidote to depression and despair. How this manifesting of ideals is to be accomplished is for your intuition to discover and your rationality to honor and not obstruct.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “The Arctic wasteland under the setting sun.” In both the Omega and the Chandra symbols there is an aura of the mystic and cosmic. Here the sign Cancer, which can be so focused on its own little world, takes in the vastness and depth of reality. The hostile environment of the Arctic urges one to find the inner source of life sustenance, as the outer source here has virtually disappeared. The bas-reliefs of salt bless and purify the physical realm, honoring it as a temple of learning and growth. The sign Cancer, which is the sign most attuned to learning and teaching is here focused on contacting and comprehending the deepest and most universal truths. This is nurturing of the soul, at root level.
Pleiadian Symbol: Dancing in and out of the shadows, two fairies dancing down a lane on a windy night.
Azoth Symbol: Mythical stories being communicated through dances.
Seed degree: Gemini 16. A man projecting numbers at someone for the purpose of healing that person. (Omega Symbol). Tuning into the vibrations the are most needed to bring us into harmony takes us deep inside ourselves where we may attune to the healing energies stored there and thus clear any negativity stored in our personality.
A single sunflower wilting and dropping its seeds. (Chandra Symbol). When we naturally release the fullness of our creativity we experience a profound and clear rest — a beautiful sense of emptiness and purity.
Fulfillment degree: Aries 9. A woman ironing white linen. (Omega Symbol). Having found an anchoring of clarity deep inside ourselves we are able to proceed with bringing greater light and harmony to our outer reality.
A fat man in a state of reverie smoking a hookah. (Chandra Symbol). Finding a vast clear space within where we may freely dream dreams, we commune with our imagination, allowing it to find its way into higher realms.
Having mined so much salt from this place the people, in thanks, had carved these statues as tributes to the gods of salt and earth. We journeyed there with candles and saw a carved map of the moon held by a naked goddess, and her animal-headed minions, and carved forests, and inscriptions in the Moon’s watery language.
And a wind came and blew our candles out, leaving us there to dream in the darkness, which anointed us.
The dancers of Singal perform naked, and on a blank stage. Their dances portray the many stories of Aab, and as they dance the sequences of their movements generates about them robes and landscapes that appear and disappear as the stories change.
Irnad has explained that the dancers of Singal consume a certain elixir before they perform that frees their time bodies, so that they might move through history, and in doing so call forth from the past memories, which the elixir has the power to substantiate. For, says Irnad, all is dance, and all dance is movement, even into and out of the past and future.
