Beyond the Soul’s Meridian August 6, 2021
The month of August brings forth the energies of the Lion. Traditionally this was celebrated at the beginning of the month. Last year’s August discussion was about the Lion’s gate portal signified by the conjunction of the brightest star in the heavens, Sirius (also known as the Dog-Star) with Sol (see discussion entitled The Gate of the Lion Beyond the Soul’s Meridian August 2020). The conjunction of Sirius begins around July 5 and ends somewhere near August 11. Ancient Egyptian culture viewed this period as the holiest of times as it signified the beginning of a New Year.
To the Egyptians, Sirius was known as the goddess Sopdet and to the Greeks Sothis. This energy was considered a manifestation of the Divine Feminine, Isis-Sophia. When Sirius is observed as the last visible star in the East heralding the rising of the Sun (known as a helical rising) it was understood that the waters of the Nile would be soon be swelling its banks, and a time of rebirth and renewal had commenced.
The energies of the Cosmos are always present for us to harness if we know how to read the signs. The practice of interpreting the stars goes beyond the knowledge of mundane astrology as the Logos energies permeate all aspects of existence. A soul in ascension is developing a greater sense of knowing, which in the esoteric teachings is known as super-sensibilities. This is nothing more than our conscious mind awakening to a subconscious intelligence that has always been integrated into the biosphere that we are all an intrinsic part of. We are going through a great awakening, and those who are transforming are coming to these lost connections to Mother Nature and the Heavens with an intuitive sense through an awareness of soul. What the Logos and Gaia are communicating to us is no surprise to those who are freeing themselves from the machinations of enslavement.
We must look at the innate energy of Sirius as a gift through an intentional process of rebirth. Historically, humanity looked upon this moment as the greatest opportunity to realign and free the soul from the draconian constraints of karma imprisoned within linear time.
The key to this knowledge was given by the Master Alchemist, who invites All to be His disciples, as He said to those who can hear His voice,
“If you continue in My Word, you are truly My disciples. Then you will know the Truth and the Truth will set you free.” (John 8:31-32)
Yet, many still cannot comprehend what is being offered to them because of the circumstances of their imprisonment. Through the constructs of a deceptive world that ego and its draconian masters have created, many who have the aptitude to ascended cannot do so because of the intrinsic limitations that perpetually hold them back. Even though grace has been bestowed upon ALL of us, many cannot integrate and transfigure the darkness that ego has created. Many identify with the role of the victim or victimizer and see themselves as blameless for the enslaving circumstances that we are living within. Two thousand years of mundane existence has not changed a thing.
“We have never been slaves to anyone. How can You say we will be set free?”
The answer to this question lies beyond the scope of what the conditioned egotistical mind can sense. Living life within a realm that is ruled by ego is living a life in error, otherwise known as sin. Therefore, those who are continuing to forge ahead in this endeavor to spiritual awakening, will never be successful in escaping the egotistical paradigm that is enslaved to itself.
We cannot ascend within the illusion of self-empowerment or stuck within the inertia of nay saying, both of which are a defense that shields the egotistical soul from the exact process that needs to occur. The act of confronting our limitations can be arduous, but it is the only path of ascension. This is the most profound and truthful fact; we can only ascend through hardship. Liberation will not be bestowed upon us like it is popularly portrayed within the New Age community.
In the best of circumstances, well intentioned, self-directed, guru-mediated, and “other-worldly” inspired activities will only bring us to a certain point. In New Age speak, we can ascend from third density to fourth density consciousness, but we cannot journey past that point. In third density, the soul is engaged with secular worldly preoccupations. In fourth density, in one way or another, the soul consorts with the lower astral realm which manipulates and or influences our intellect.
The final ascension to the summit breaches into the realm of fifth density or Christed consciousness. There is only one viable path if one cares to ascend into the New Jerusalem as articulated in the scriptures of our culture. This state of consciousness resides within the heavenly realm of Zion.
Does this mean that we will live in the heavens? I honestly do not know. What I suspect is that the heavens will live within us.
Zion is a Hebrew reference to the Zodiac, which is constantly communicating, in a non-verbal fashion, what every human soul understands.
In Psalm 19, David declares:
The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
Day after day they pour forth speech;
night after night they reveal knowledge.
They have no speech, they use no words;
no sound is heard from them.
All the great initiates knew this sacred language of the Heavens in union with Earth. It is no different for those destined to come after them.
The Master Soter told us that to ascended we must deny our self, (the supremacy of our egotistical will) take up our own cross, and follow Him. During this summer’s energy (see Beyond the Soul’s Meridian June 2021 discussion Summer Solstice: Initiation into the New Age) we have all been affixed to this cross. Will we die like a slave, or will we transcend?
Six days after this truth was expressed, Jesus led three selected Disciples (Peter, John, and James) up Mount Tabor. It was at this spot on the transition of the seventh day where the transfiguration of Jesus occurred. This was the point where Tabor was transformed into Mount Zion. What was witness by the Apostles was akin to a focal point where past, present, and future timelines converge upon themselves. Jesus was the central figure of this meld where the entities of Moses, Elijah, and Yahweh converged upon the transfigured and ascended soul of the Master of this ultimate mystery.
The celebration of this event traditionally occurs around the August 6. It should come to no surprise that this date correlates to the presence of Sirius and the summer’s Lion gate portal. From the ancient perspective, Sirius represents the Divine Feminine, rebirth, and realignment with higher truth. We could also view this as Sirius (Isis-Sophia) in conjunction with Sol (Logos). These are the seasonal energies harnessed surrounding this witnessed event.
In this instance, not only was Jesus transfigured but so was the mountain. In the Revelations of John, he offers us a vision:
“On Mount Zion stood the Lamb, and with him 144,000 who had His name written on their foreheads.” (Revelations 14:1)
There are many mythologies that reference this group of mystical initiates of Christed consciousness. In the mythology of the Hopi nation, these witnesses are known as the Rainbow warriors or Sun dancers. Theosophy teaches that these souls are from the planet Venus, known as the Morning Star. In Revelation, Jesus references the Morning Star as his own.
“I, Jesus, have sent My angel to give you this testimony for the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, the bright Morning Star.” (Revelation 22:16)
The child of Sopdet (Sirius) is Venus represented as an upright pentagram above the Egyptian goddess’ head.
The mystery of the 144,000 is dense, and for this reason, it is best to listen to the insights of the great initiate, Rudolf Steiner.
“These are the people who will constitute human society in the age of the sixth seal. The writer of the Apocalypse knows the secrets of all evolution, and he tells them in a language generally little understood. He does this because human beings will be able to develop their consciousness soul precisely through the exertion of energy required to penetrate such riddles…
In this way spiritual seers have spoken to other spiritual seers through the millennia and we find all of this again even unto the names in the Apocalypse. As Paul said, “… it is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me.” (Gal. 2:20) This, too, we find again in the Apocalypse. The I is permeated by Christ. The one who can fructify the I with his name is the Christ: “… and he has a name inscribed which no one knows but he himself.” (Rev. 19:12)” (1)
In this fashion our “I” or Ego is becoming integrated with the impulse of Christ, for we cannot come to this level of knowing outside an indelible union with it. This is simply the marriage of our essential soul to higher self. Through this union Ego or “I” is transfigured and redeemed.
This is an essential truth which none can bypass, as we can only come to the Father through the Son.
After the transfiguration on Mount Tabor, and the descent of Jesus and the chosen Apostles, they eventually encountered a Bodhi tree. The Bodhi is a large spreading fig tree that provides shelter and nourishment. It is also the same type of tree where the Buddha received enlightenment. In this case, the tree was barren of fruit. As witness by the Disciples, Jesus appeared to have cursed the tree.
“Then He said to the tree, “May no one ever eat of your fruit again.” And His disciples heard this statement.” Mark 11:14
This was not a curse but a prophetic truth as the final pathway to our ascended state of being was now invested within our personal transfiguration within the Christos-Sophia archetype.
There is no other way into the higher realm of the New World of Christed consciousness where Mother Gaia has ascended.
Pay attention to the information that the powers who control ALL forms of media allow to be disseminated. It is always devoid of these concepts as Christed individuals are the greatest threat to their draconian agenda of enslavement.
The path to ascended enlightenment is narrow. A dear friend described it as severe. It certainly can look that way to a person still trying to live within ego’s control. One must surrender to a higher authority which amounts to our higher self. In this relationship the union of Christ Sophia manifests, and we initiate our journey into an ascended realm no longer enslaved by draconian forces. This path cannot be envisioned by ego which can only see in linear references.
It takes courage and faith to let go, which is the key to the threshold that we must all cross.
For the initiate understands that time is circular and lives life focused in the moment of NOW.
There is no call to worry about timelines that your current state of mind cannot understand. Living in the present and presence of Christed consciousness allows for a future that will take care of itself.
In Good Faith,
