“ Diamond Sun “, like a radiant solar orb… reflecting ….´like a sun´. Natural yellow diamond is caused by gathering of nitrogen atoms in such a way within the crystal lattice, that blue light is absorbed and yellow reflected.

The Soul is like a diamond or a prism, capable of reflecting the pure white light as well as esoteric and exoteric colours as it itself reflects the higher light of the ‘ Illuminating Spiritual Sun ‘. Capapble of reflecting the light through the physical body as well, through a set of co-ordinated, purified lower vehicles.

Light and Form symbolized by Sun & Saturn ☉  ♄ 

” Saturn represents limitation and form, the Sun stands for light and radiation.

Building of The Solar Temple

The precious life force, life power intelligently clothed in beautiful garments of nature and Ancient Symbols

 

 

The precious Life Force, life power Intelligently clothed in beautiful garments of nature like trees, water, stars, gems, flowers, herbal greenes,        and Ancient Symbols.

 

 

 

There is an Intelligence, a ´ higher intelligence ´ that expresses itself living, direct, pure, intuitive – and even creative for any practical purpose on the physical plane needed.
It can not be taught from the outside, it is prevailing from the inside . . . as a streaming flow .

* I write ´intuitive´ as the intelligence does not require any previous thinking or analysis, but can of course expres through thought as well.

 

 

 

 

 

Ancient Symbols.

The Hexagram,, the 2 intersected triangles △ ▽ ✡sometimes despicted with a circle around has multiple inlay of meanings, the circled hexagram can also signify ´the hierophantic symbol ´.

 

 

 

 

 

The Hexagram one level it can be seen as an ancient symbol that gives understanding to some of this current universe structure, revealing geometric bulding structures and building blocks, also (esoteric ) inside as there are higher and lower triangles in the body.

 

 

 

The Two Intersected Triangles can slso be seen eg as union of higher threefold nature with lower threefoldnature, union of maskuline /feminine, fire and water, micro and macro cosmos .

 

 

 

One of the great things about Symbols, besides preserving knowledge, is that they can convey many meanings at the same time, and each can understand/ translate intepretate at their individual level and at the same time train the intuition.

 

 

 

The Circled dot Symbol card  and the 1 line ;
Center –  Alignment … & health

 

 


 

 

 

The Circled dot Symbol or the circumpunct symbol ; 1 Primal Source / – Primal Force. Through the dot is created/projected the first line, (lines) .. The Center from where all emanate from,and a return point . 2) Alternate overlay symbolisms; the dot represent your spirit or core self point at the center of your space. 3 A center place to return to or a centerpoint to focus opon or observe from, a place to Be from . 4) Dot represent Monad.

 

 

As ancient symbol, for alchemists ☉ the circumpunct symbol also represented gold , ´alchemical gold´ ( analogical mean personal and bodily elemental transmutation and purification ) … and sol / Sun.

 

 

 

 

 

The Equal armed Cross (of Nature / Crross of Balance ) can signify several meanings as well , eg. one  can symbolize the 4 physical elements, for transmutation and purification ´ ínto gold ´ in itself as symbol ..

Libra, Law and The Card Justice XI

Libra, Law and The Card Justice XI

 

 

 

On ´The Path of Return´ the Justice Card symbolically on one level refer to Embodiment of The Law. Embodiment of the Law in right knowing, right thought and right action, in integrity, truth, fairness, and love.

On The Way Back to Source we also Embody Spirit. In an ideal society, the spirit would be embodied, or least the Universal Principles behind the letter of The Law, and them adhered to rather than just adhering strictly to the letter.

As only the latter can quite easy cause blind belief, religious dogma and fanatism and ages of misunderstanding or misinterpretation based on the Letter of The Law and based on actual ´ Letters and Names ´ derived of alphabetic constructions, without seeing, feeling, realizing the Universals or The Spirit of The Law and the intention behind or eg a universal path behind, or taking literal what is symbolical, methaphorical or allegorical.

 

 

 

To perform The Great Work we must take guidance from our Higher Self

To perform The Great Work we must take guidance from our Higher Self, and proceedingly become our Higher Self, which brings us into Universal Harmony and an expression for Divine Will.

 

 

 

” Every man’s true teacher is his own higher self, and when the life is brought under the control of reason, this higher self is released from bondage to appetites and impulses, and becomes priest, sage, and illuminator.” – Manly P.Hall

 

 

 

 

 

“ Each Soul has to ascertain for himself, and must find out within himself, remembering ever that the kingdom of God is within, and that only those facts which are realised within the individual consciousness as truths are of any real value. “ – AA Bailey Initiation Human and Solar

 

” There is but one authority – each man’s own immortal Soul, and that is the only authority which should be recognized. ” _ AA. Bailey / DK .

 

 

” Complete obedience to any guru or mahatma in the sense of complete subjugation of the will is never taught in the True Science of Yoga ( Union ) . Subjugation of the lower man to the will of the Inner God is taught and all the methods and rules of yoga (Union ) are to this specific end. ”

Important questions in self -evaluation in the Great work of the Ageless Wisdom.
“ Is my study and work transmuting the base metal of my personality into gold of real attainment ? Are my desires becoming purer, my mental processes clearer, my intuition better defined ? “

– Paul Foster Case

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

No true teacher or ´master´ wants people just to repeat what they say like parrots, theres no real evolution in that or experiental essential self integration, Every mans true teacher and authority is his /her own Higher Self. Self Realization means realizing truth through the Self. As much as a teacher, master can be a tempoarily guide on the way, worshipping these and giving power away to them, is self disempowering, and like ´ creating blocks on the internal source line´.

 

 

A thousand books can be read, or lectures heard but if Knowledge is not Internalized to be made ones own and experienced, realised, and Eksternalised into ones own practice it remains just words and theories.

 

 

 

 

 

Meditation focussed and intended in Soul -Alignment and soul contact can be a great aid in ´ becomming the Higher Self ´. Visualize the alignment if neccessary..

And dwelling in Soul-meditation, on the causal plane of the Soul.

 

In becomming ´The Higher Self´, besides soul-alignnment meditation & dwelling in soul-meditation on the caual plane, theres also rythmic aid; as in feeling /- hearing the rythms, sounds, tones, melodies of the Soul ( and later the Monad) and let them integrate in the mental, physical, etheric, emotional/astral bodies, to vibrate them in unison in a coordinated way: letting the ´lesser rythms´ in daily life be assimilated into the (integrated) ´higher rythms.´

 

 

And the calming sound of the breath Logoic ……. ( letting the ´ little breath´ be absorbed into the rythm of the greater breath ). .

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Building of the ´ Solar Temple ´

Building of the ´ Solar Temple ´

 

 

 

 

 

If the Soul-body Temple is a ´Solar Temple´ (to build in service ) The Sun is the only Star or Solar Light (soul ) be the only light in the Microcosmic Heaven (not lunar light).
The Sun illluminates the subconscious waters.
The soul may build and rule its microcosmic temple under divine will (power), love and intelligence, and responsibility .

 

Regarding Solar Temple & ´Solar light be the only light in the microcosmic sky´ ;
The lower bodies are build by ´lunar pitris´
meant as in they consist of involutionary elemental forces,
until transmuted and ´rebuild´ by the Soul /Solar light (evolutionary force ).

 

 

 

Eg if focussing on feeding  the astral body /desire body rather than building the Soulbody /´causal body´ / Karana-Sarira / ´ Higher Temple of Solomon ´ ( The Temple of the Soul on its own plane ), bonding and attachment with the ´lower lunar world´ and ´astral glamor and illusion ´ is maintained or strengthened as opposed to be dissipated in the clear light of the Soul.

 


 

 

 

On Ruling the  Stars or being ruled ;

When the Soul Master its Temple it rules its Internal Stars (chakra /wheels) and they can become pure mediums for Soul force and distribution of soulforce – And in that mastery the Soul ( or the yogi ) will also rule the Inner seasons or cyclic impulses, or least not be effected by them.

Part of the mastery involves balancing the the polarity forces represented by the nerve channels ida and pingala.

The Angel, Solar Angel, the Card Temperence and The Great Work

 

The Angel, Solar Angel, the Card Temperence and The Great Work

 

 

 

 

The Angel in the Card is a Symbol of the Higher Self /Soul / Solar Angel, shows to perform The Great Work we must take guidance from our Higher Self, and proceedingly become our Higher Self, which brings us into Universal Harmony and an expression for Divine Will.

 

Also an inner work to bring the 3 lower bodies physical(+etheric duble) mental and emotional(astral) into One Harmonic coordinated whole that the Soul /Higher Self or Spirit can work through. The 3 become 1, which has an ´higher equivalent analogy´ of 1 in 3 . ( Highest in the unerstanding of The Trinity as 1 in 3 ; 1 behind and 3 in outer manifestation, and several triadic expressions down to the 3 fold lowest nature )

 

When the lower sheaths are purified along with the personality, the higher ´Solar´ radiance can shine through a clarified reflection and higher will can flow /work unobstructed through, the inner fire blaze stronger forth and the bodily cells can become spheres of radiant glory.

 

 

When the lower 3fold nature is subjugated, coordinated and cleansed the Soul or Solar Angel can ´downpour´ and integrate , its force can downpour , the soul can then fully take control of the brain, and be the master of its temple (in service ), progressingly under influence and will of its own higher self ; the Monad . The monad can be seen as the ´higher self ´of the (soul) ´higher self ´.

 

The full ´downpouring´ of Soul force is ´ideally blended ´with the event of the uprising of the Breath of Fire ( the lower fire of kundalini ) which vitalises, cleanses , integrates and electrifices , burns what hinders and reveals and illuminate what is hidden.

 

These 2 events can work perfectly together fitted as long as the kundalini has not been seeked to be rised prematurily and unwise, which can burn off protective tissue and veils too soon and cause damage in a variaty of ways to the lower bodies and phyche.

 

The needed subjugation and control of the serpent fire energy ,sexual energy in The Great Work is symbolised in the Tarot Card Strength.

 

 

 

 

 

The Vase

” The Vase represents what alchemists call
the “vase of art,” In Philalethes* Fount of
Chemical Truth , we read: “When we speak of our vessel and our fire, we mean by bothexpressions, our water, nor is our furnace
anything diverse or distinct from our water.

There is then one vessel, one furnace, one
fire, and all these make up one water. The
fire digests, the vessel whitens and pene-
trates, the furnace is the bond which c empris-
es and encloses all, and these three are our
Mercury ”

 

” The conditions underwhich it (personal kundalini aspect ) may be brought into activity safely include ; purity of mind and desire, high aspirations and ideals ; utter unselfishness in actions. Fortunately it is dormant in most persons. We say “ fortunately” because it’s a tremendous force, as potent for destruction debasement as for integration and illumination. It may not be trifled with. ”

 

Important questions in self -evaluation in the Great work of the Ageless Wisdom.
“ Is my study and work transmuting the base metal of my personality
into gold of real attainment ? Are my desires becoming purer , my
mental processes clearer , my intuition better defined ? “

 

– Paul Foster Case ( Tarot fundementals 1936)

 

 

There are of course more to be said/ understood about the The pictoral symbol named ” Temperence” than the angel symbolising the higher self /soul /solar angel in man, and to perform the Great Work we must take that Angel /Higher Self in the hand and work together, but i will end it here, and leave for others to make own intepretations.

 

The greater goal of ´the Great Work ´ is to take part in ones share of the Greater Work .

The Ageless Wisdom & The Great Work

 

The Ageless Wisdom & The Great Work

 

By Paul Foster Case, with commentary by author Elena
Patanjali excerpt.

 

 

 

” You must wholly alter your conception of sex in order to comprehend the Ancient Wisdom. It is the interior nervous organism, not the external organs, that is always meant in phallic symbolism, and the force that works through these interior centers is the great magical agent, the • divine serpent fire.”

•Part of the greater cosmic fire / force, cosmic electricity force ..

 

“Learning to control this magical agent, is part of the daily work of every student of the Ageless Wisdom ..
1. The sex-force has other uses than reproduction;
2. its misuse may consist either in employing it  for mere sense-pleasure, or else in repressing it, because it is supposed to be inimical to spiritual growth.

The needed subjugation and control of the serpent fire energy ,sexual energy in The Great Work is symbolised in the Tarot Card Strength.

 

 

“Clean living and control are indispensable. Control, however, implies right use, not suppression. ”  +  Transmutation.

 

” The third stage of unfoldment, though it makes use of, and modifies, the nerve-force which is ordinarily employed in the sex function, has nothing to do with that function itself. Right meditation releases and lifts up the “serpent-power,” (Kundalini) stored in a nerve center  at the base of the spine. In Yoga philosophy this is called the Muladhara chakra, or basic lotus. In modern physiology it is related to the sacral plexus. In these lessons it is called the Saturn center, and is thus  directly connected with the planet which rules the sign Aquarius. In meditation the force stored in this center is made to rise, so that it en-ergizes, in succession, six other centers, of which three are in the body,  one in the throat, and two in the head.

One step toward control is to establish a clear intellectual perception of the truth that all the various forms of physical existence are merely transformations of this one energy. All are disguises for the one thing. The essential nature of the one thing is Spirit. ”

 

 

” The conditions underwhich it (personal kundalini aspect ) may be brought into activity safely include ; purity of mind and desire, high aspirations and ideals ; utter unselfishness in actions. Fortunately it is dormant in most persons. We say “ fortunately” because it’s a tremendous force, as potent for destruction debasement as for integration and illumination.
It may not be trifled with. ”

 

 

 

Hunger and thirst are the two aspects of desire.

 

Book 3 – Sutra 30 ( Patanjali )
30-31. By fixing the attention upon the throat center, the cessation of hunger and thirst will ensue. By fixing the attention upon the tube or nerve below the throat center, equilibrium is achieved.
.
” Excerpt: On the astral or desire plane, within the astral body of the aspirant, must this balancing process be wrought out to completion. This is the great battleground, symbolized so beautifully for us in the human body, with its three higher centers, its lower energy focal points and that great middle center, the solar plexus, typifying the astral plane and its work. It will now be apparent why the two sutras are read as one, for they cover one completed work.
After achieving some measure of equilibrium, the aspirant learns to perfect that balancing process and gains the power to stand firm and immovable, preserving an unshakable equilibrium between the pairs of opposites. The nerve, called “kurma-nadi” or the “tortoise tube” is the physical correspondence to the point the aspirant has reached “
.
<>
.
The true significance of the above sutras which are here bracketed together, grows out of an understanding of the transmutative process and the transference which is effected in the solar plexus.
The energy of the sacral center which feeds the generative organs is in due course of time transferred into the throat center. The creative process is then carried on by thought, sound and the spoken Word. Hunger and thirst are the two aspects of desire, the one, hunger, being positive, masculine and grasping; the other, thirst, being negative, feminine and receptive. Those two words are but symbols of the two great impulses underlying the sex impulse. When these impulses are dominated and controlled, then the energy of the center lying behind the organs concerned, can be carried upward to the throat, and hunger and thirst are arrested in the esoteric sense. It should be borne in mind here that these two words are the physical plane analogies to the great pairs of opposites which the yogi has to balance and which he does balance when the solar plexus is performing its highest function.”

THE LIGHT OF THE SOUL
Its Science and Effect
A PARAPHRASE OF THE YOGA SUTRAS OF PATANJALI
withe comentary by AA Bailey / DK
.
” Hitherto the mind has either been prostituted to material ends or has been deified. Through the science of Raja Yoga, the mind will be known as the instrument of the soul and the means whereby the brain of the aspirant becomes illuminated and knowledge gained of those matters which concern the realm of the soul.
.
It should be noted that the translation is not literal, and is not an exact definition of each original Sanskrit term. It is an attempt to put into clear and understandable English the exact meaning, insofar as it is possible to do so through the medium of that non-elastic and unimaginative tongue. The student may find it of use in the study of these sutras to compare the rendition here given, with the various other procurable translations. “
.

 

 

 

 

“Here we approach the difficulty of Ageless Wisdom. In order to persform the Great Work, we must undertake the initial stages as if we were doing something of our own volition, by our own power. Certainly it seems that way . It involves a distinct sense of effort. There is deliberate exercise of power. ways and means are carefully selected. The initial steps in the Work requires strict self-dicipline. No person who does not dereminendly “ Take himself in hand” ever performs the Gret Work of regeneration .

Because few persons have courage and persistence to continue the preliminary work in spire of its appearent fruitlessness, and because not many choose to practice resolute denial of self will required by every occult system of discipline, the number of adepts in proportion to the worlds population is small. No suspension of the discipline, for any reason whatever, can be made for the adherents of any school or teacher. The discipline is not imposed by men or higher beings. It is the consequence of natural laws of physical and mental growt. ”

 

” The true function of personality is an instrument for Divine Will.”

 

  ” The Vase held in the Angels hand in the card Temperence show that The Great Work cannot succed, unless human personality is taken in hand by the Higher Self. ”

•  The Angel in card represent the Higher Self /Soul /Solar Angel of man

 

 

“The attitude of personal surrender it typifies is developed in the fifth stage of unfoldment. In this mental attitude, which is exactly the reverse of that held by most persons, we learn the secret of true repose, the arcanum of eternal rest. For when all things, from least to greatest, are done through us and not by us, then fatigue is banished. He who is really guided by the Life-power in all things wastes neither time nor strength. Best of all, such a person has forgotten how to be anxious about anything.”

 

“The Life-power is the real, and only, Artist. It accomplishes the Great Work in and through us.”

” People of little understanding are always bringing against this teaching the accusation that by it men seek to save themselves. It is, they say, an endeavor to lift man up by his own boot-straps. This is untrue. Ageless Wisdom again and again proclaims the folly of the man who thinks he can save himself. It tells us that little by little the Life-power ripens its personal centers to the point where they become able to understand and apply the perfect law of liberty. Each person s liberation is a particular fulfillment of cosmic law, and from another point-of-view we must regard it as being a true work of “grace,” as an example of the perfect self-impartation of the One Life to one of its personal aspects. “

 

 

 

 

 

•  Important questions in self -evaluation in the Great work of the Ageless Wisdom.
“ Is my study and work transmuting the base metal of my personality
into gold of real attainment ? Are my desires becoming purer , my
mental processes clearer , my intuition better defined ? “

 

 

” The Ageless Wisdom is an expression of direct experience,
possible for all, but known to relatively few.”

 

 

 

” I have said that the regenerated man has a Solar con-
sciousness. Other occultists speak of his having a solar
body. The two statements are really one.

 

• Another way of expressing similar what Paul says here  is when the Solar consciouness dominate or have subjugated the lunar forces of the body , when the SOUL light (light of the Solar Angel ), when that Solar light is pervading the whole microcosmic system, and is the only light on the microcosmic heaven and not the lunar light or lunar pitris,
Further understanding can relate to other stages of identification with the Solar Logos of this solar system…and Solar Intelligence

Symbols are but symbols and not literal that to which they refer. Symbols of Tarot.

 

 

 

Symbols are but symbols and not literal that to which they refer.

 

 

Symbols of Tarot.

Symbols are but symbols and not literal that to which they refer. Eg if people understood the real meaning of tarot, theyd be ´enligthened´, self knowledgeable, liberated and understand how Natural Law works *if they chose selfwork, experiental knowledge ( ´self initiation´ ) and self responsibility over dogma.
Not divination, but keys reflecting the inner and outer current universe of which we are embodied in on cosmic and physical subcosmic planes.
Eg the ´devil´ in its meaning is but a symbol of selfchosen bondage of man, to which liberation awaits those who sees the Light, their Inner Spiritual Light, and in the way that light ( + higher love, wisdom and knowledge ) is applied and integrated, to liberate the soul from physical / material bondage and astral link-connect ,´ eventually to stand free in / of the 3 lower worlds´ (physical, emotional, and mental ) -from the unreal into the real .

Tarot is an expression of pictoral keys of ´ageless or ancient wisdom´ , preserved through symbols, that speaks to ones inner consciousness, subconsciousness and  consciousness and (latent ) knowledge individually and collectively of our shared micro, macro cosmic universe.

 

 

 

• The understanding, intepretation and study of Symbols is a great way of training the Intuition.

 

 

Revelation, perfect meditation, inspiration, purification and refinement of the senses are one level some of the symbolic keys in the card XVII The Star ☆

 

 

 


 

 

Below a few Excerpts from Pauls Foster Case ´s Tarot Fundamentals . An insightful man ..

 

1 The Magician

“Subconsciousness, you will recall, is represented by the garden in Key 1.
The fertile soil of this garden will grow any seed planted by the Magician.
If he plants careless observations and incorrect reasoning, the weeds of conscious thought, subconsciousness will develop these seeds of error a thousandfold, with all sorts of uncomfortable consequences.

 

On the otherhand, if you learn to concentrate, to rnake your mental imagery clear and definite, if you make accurate observations from which you draw correct inferences, the seed you plant in your subconscious garden will bear fruit in the renewal, revivification and regeneration of your personality.”
The Magician symbolizes perfect concentration. He represents the power expressed by him who is able to make his mind “one-pointed.” Nature conceals
nothing from the person who has learned to watch.

 

“ Geometrically the number 1 is a point , particularily , the Central Point .
In the pattern on the Thresteboard the statement attributed :
“ I am a center expression of the Primal Will –to-good which eternally creates and sustains the universe “ .
The beginning of the creative process is the concentration of
Life –Power at the center , and its expression through that center . The Sun of our Solar – System is such a Center .
It transmits the Life-Power as Radiant energy .
This idea is shown in 2 ways by the letter Beth printed on Key 1
Personality is the center through which the Spirit or real self of man expresses itself . “

 

“The Magician typifies the beginning or inception of the process whereby limitless possibilities of the Life-Power are brought into expression as manifested actualities . The Key represents the initiation of the creative process on all planes “
1 Primal will.
O (Zero ) : no thing , undifferentiated power
preceeding all manifestation, unknown, immeasurable, eternal Source.
Therefore is the Sun placed high in the heavens behind
the Fool, and the force that the Magician draws down
from above and directs upon the garden below him is that same Solar energy.
Thus, in the garden of the Magician, grow the lilies of
right knowledge.

 

 

 

The White Rose

 

“ The Rose : represents desire.
Its thorns symbolize pain. Its bloom typifies beauty and joy
It is White like the SUN, to intimate that through right cultivation of desire nature we may bring it into unison with Primal Will. To control the Desire Nature , to cultivate it aright, to use it so that we may enjoy the beauty it can bring us without suffering the pains resulting from abuse – this is one of the great practical secrets . “
“ Freemasonry preserves a tradition of older esoteric schools when it says the compasses are “ to circumscribe our desires and keep our passions within due bounds “

 

” In all the universe there is only ONE Will-power. It is the power expressed through all the various laws of life. Through want of right discriminiation a man may suppose himself to have something he calls “ will “ . He may go so far in his delusions as to suppose he can pit that imaginary “ will “ of his
against the laws of life . He who can discriminate is not so deluded . hence , in Tarot , the key picturing the true Will –power , and mans relation to it , follows the Key which represents Discrimination .”

 

Powers of Will  <>The Transcending Will, The Will of The Transcended One, The Ascending Will, The Descending Will. The Transmitting Will, The Transforming Will, The Transfiguring Will. The Will to Be, The Will to Withdrawl, The Will to Create ,The Will to Destroy, The Will to Build and The Will to Rebuild. The Will to Sacrifice
– Elena

 

 

 

The High Priestess. This we have identified with what is variously labeled by modern psychology as “subconscious,” “subliminal,” or “subjective” mind. It has
been called also “transliminal consciousness,” and there is much in fa- vor of this term. “Transliminal” means “across the threshold,” and in some respects this seems to be a more accurate description of the consciousness symbolized by the High Priestess. It is certainly more in accord with the Tarot symbolism. For one thing, it conveys no impression of inferiority, as do the terms “subconscious” and “subliminal.”

 

” Understand first that Tarot Cards do not put something into your consciousness , they call forth what is already there “
” Over the portals of the ancient temples was therefore the motto ” Know thyself ” . For the same reason it is written ” Seeek ye first the kingdom of God ” and ” the kingdom of God is within you ” .
” The tarot will bring out the knowledge that is within you , this knowledge is more important to you than anything else .”
” Never will you be denied the joy of making fresh discoveries, the happiness of finding new beauties in this wisdom-teaching.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Symbols are but symbols                                         

“While the ignorant multitudes brought their offerings to the altars of the gods, the wise recognized in these marble statues only symbolic concretions of great abstract truths.” – Manly P. Hall
