The Cosmic Eggs

The Cosmic Eggs

One of many historical Seven Wonders of the World is reported (a few years in spite of everything however the Nice Pyramid had vanished) to be the Temple of Artemis in Ephesus. This nice goddess has what many archaeologists and historians have interpreted to be practically a thousand breasts on her physique. It’s being commented on on this very method as I kind this. The Discovery Channel is interviewing an esteemed Cambridge scholar who seems to be to know his phrases are as clever as Solomon. The stupidity of such absurd explanations just isn’t uncommon however nonetheless it attracts a smile from those that know higher.

Prior to now few months I’ve learn over 2 hundred books in complete or partially and solely the authors of Carthage have an concept concerning the import of those ‘cosmic eggs’. In addition they marvel why the Berbers painted so many ostrich eggs after which threw them in rubbish pits, close to Cyrenaica. The Keltic serpent’s eggs from the Druidic schooling may present slightly perception. This subsequent quote mentions ‘Pelota’ which we talked about in reference to a recreation that occurred at Chichen Itza to forestall pointless tribal battle. It has different meanings and depths regarding life and the passage of the soul which can be touched upon on this quote from ‘The Mistletoe Sacrament’ by W. B. Crow in ‘A Celtic Reader’ which has been a continuing supply of mine; for the final ten months as I’ve explored the origins of the ‘Pink-Heads’ with an obsession some may name mania:

The Druids themselves had been identified to the Welsh bards by a phrase meaning adders, and Lewis Spence is of the opinion that the ridiculous statements of Pliny actually consult with the way during which the Druids manufacture these eggs. Later bards additionally consult with a ceremony during which a ball was snatched and carried throughout the water.

The Druidic customized simply talked about, we can’t assist pondering, might have been the origin of the curious mediaeval ceremony of ‘pelota’, which occurred in sure Catholic church buildings in France and Italy on Easter Monday. The ceremony consisted in bringing a ball of appreciable dimension into the church and after solemnly presenting it earlier than the altar, sure of the clergy starting to bounce and throwing the ball about in a particular method {It might be good to know if this originated in Mayan lands or if the Druids like Quetzalcoatl and the Toltecs took it there. They’re the ‘messengers’ referred to in lots of Indian legends like these of Gray Owl.}. The ceremony symbolizes each the passage of the solar and the planets by the heavens and in addition the vicissitudes of the soul of man (the causal physique of the theosophists). In Egyptian mythology the trial of the soul after demise is related to the passage of the solar by the underworld. The whipping of a spinning prime, representing Alleluia on the Saturday earlier than Septuagesima, a ceremony not unusual on this nation in former occasions, is said to this follow.

Madame Blavatsky has some attention-grabbing remarks on the reference to the serpent cult {A serpent goes up the aspect of the pyramid at Chichen Itza in particular methods because the solar and shadows create the impact that the constructing was re-built to create by the Toltec designers after the unique pyramid had been constructed by the Jaguar cult centuries earlier. Chichen Itza turned a global court docket of the entire of Central America if no more.}, which was at one time widespread and which remains to be broadly practiced in South India. The serpent is an emblem of regeneration {And the orobouros of the alchemists is a serpent holding its tail and making the infinity kind of immortality image: or the Mayan mathematical idea of zero they’re credited with discovering over a century earlier than the folks of the sub-continent of India.). Not solely does it lay eggs from which new life arises after having been preserved within the dormant state, however the reptile itself sloughs its pores and skin at common intervals. The provoke, within the historical thriller religions, went by sure occult processes the place his automobiles {Photo voltaic physique, soul, allies and ‘doppelganger’ to call a number of.} had been really renewed, and within the symbolism thereof forged off his outdated clothes and was clad in new vestures. What higher symbolism than the serpent might be chosen to characterize this alteration within the character? In addition to this, the regeneration by sloughing refers back to the regeneration of the bodily physique by reincarnation and the regeneration of races and worlds of the theosophic cosmogony.

Some primitive peoples, after a demise has occurred, carry out a ritual during which the performers are divided into two teams and a wrestle for the physique takes place between the events. This refers back to the wrestle between the powers of sunshine and darkness for the spirit o£ the deceased, an eschatological fantasy of many historical peoples. In the midst of the evolution of this ritual it turned a recreation during which the cranium alone was the article of fight or needed to be kicked into the aim. The varied types of the sport of soccer and polo, and maybe different ball video games, are speculated to have originated from this, the unique spiritual significance having grow to be misplaced. The Druidic ritual of snatching an egg and working away till one acquired over a stream (which acts because the aim) suggests the same recreation and connects up with funeral video games. The egg or ball is a superb image of the causal physique, if one can consider clairvoyants, who see it as a sort of rounded or egg-shaped construction, in wonderful matter {Just like ectoplasm as seen in ghosts.} of the upper psychological {I might undoubtedly NOT use this phrase.} airplane. After demise, based on accounts of occultists, there’s a sort of play of forces, good and evil, which do appear to wrestle for the possession of the causal physique and to find out whether or not it goes to or unhealthy incarnation when subsequent it descends to dress itself with coarser matter.

The Druid’s egg, says Pliny, was unknown to the Greeks {They actually knew concerning the Temple of Artemis with all of the eggs some present Cambridge scholar thinks is breasts, and Pliny the Roman just isn’t an provoke within the Eleusinian or Cabiri, mysteries, to my information.}. However other forms of eggs are talked about in Greek and Hindu mythology, and the consecration of an egg was probably the most necessary acts within the secret ritual of the Eleusinian mysteries. The Christian Church continued using the identical image, as we see within the so-called Easter eggs, and within the ostrich eggs that are nonetheless to be seen hanging in Orthodox Catholic Church buildings within the East. In reality an entire lecture is likely to be dedicated to the symbolism of the cosmic egg.”

We should delve into many issues this quote engages. In some methods I’m squeamish about doing so on this guide. I’ve written about my experiences and analysis on the stele I discovered behind the Pelota at Chichen Itza in different books and that makes re-telling the story one thing redundant. The matter of excellent and evil and ‘Some primitive peoples’ this writer is speaking about is most troublesome. How can I do what hundreds of thousands of philosophers all through historical past have been unable to totally clarify? It’s clear that the Christian church borrowed nearly all of the supposedly pagan rituals. The communion is admitted by de Vere and Gardner (Genesis of the Grail Kings and the Sarkeny Rend Rosicrucians) to be much like their earlier adept Rely Dracul or ‘Vlad the Impaler’ and the vampire practices. My expertise with exorcisms is in depth sufficient to know that the Catholic Church takes benefit of some fairly simple conditions and makes them an enormous concern for the aim of self-promotion. I like to recommend studying The Devils of Loudon by Aldous Huxley for a documentary journey down that street. The matter of the battle over the soul that feels like a few of Dante Aligheri’s “HELL” just isn’t the matter of Druidic cosmogony. It’s the tactic of FEAR-mongering by Christianity such because the ‘sins and demons’ we touched upon within the concern of medical illnesses and Paracelsus.

Mr. Sharkey spoke about ‘representing every world inside the different’, as he described the Druids. There was a guided non secular ritual half to a few of what went on on the Pelota in Chichen Itza with the large ball, that goes into the realm of the time-space continuum, and free alternative that college students of the Nagual’s Means from Castaneda may perceive that I will not delve into, once more. Are there actually ‘Different Worlds’ because the quantum physics ‘Many Worlds Interpretation’ assures us and Wigner or Schrödinger (Nobel Laureates) say the Mandukya Upanishads describe precisely? Have you ever learn the Tao of Physics by the physicist Fritjof Capra and seen what he says about S-Matrix principle of Math and the ‘I Ching’? Imagine me this writer (Mr. Crow) may need to show right into a raven if his ‘complete lecture’ would do the trick in explaining the cosmic egg.

We’ve made it clear the Kelts believed within the afterlife and spirit world or they would not have made loans to be repaid after demise. We’ve mentioned they did not worry demise and that that they had no punitive ‘unmerciful God. However there are leprechauns and the Fianna of the good historical Irish king Finn who the Phoenicians appreciated and named themselves after. So we’re caught on this quandary of constructing seeming conflicting statements come collectively. We mentioned the spirits may take a baby or their power if the guardian let the spirits know the kid’s identify. That does not sound just like the work of a leprechaun! You could have heard about ‘witches’ and you understand we have been defending them, too. You in all probability marvel if this is not all ‘hocus-pocus’ and barbaric issues anyway.

There are good those that I do know who deny and keep away from these information like they’re ‘THE PLAGUE’! It is not going to make your life simpler while you open these doorways and see the hundreds extra that await you past. Occultists are sometimes ‘sophists’ or will interact in sophistry too. Who can say what issues God is likely to be able to? Who actually believes in such a drive anyway? Most individuals pay lip-service to it. The Kelts now we have mentioned (and Admiral Morison ridiculed) had been completely different. Clearly the Phoenicians demanded the best private dedication to their beliefs, not less than from their common individual or citizen. When their kings are seen having to provide their first born to the god Baal (Bel = BL) are they only babel-ing (BBL and later the Bible)? A few of these kings had been entrance males or ladies and there’s ample proof they did this stuff, however that does not imply all of them did it. Carthage had a democratic kind of presidency based on Aristotle and perhaps this was the cross kings needed to bear just like the Keltic follow of burning the chief on the finish of their time period in workplace (25 12 months time period, and this made for much less fraud and ‘cronyism’). This could grow to be fairly barbaric as now we have seen with the ‘Devoted Ones’ however it turned a celebration and the forerunner of the ‘wake’. That appears proof sufficient that demise was not feared anyMORE than the North American warriors who ‘counted coup’ feared their ‘maker’. So what if all these cultural beliefs are shared throughout the oceans? What does it matter to you now if you’re ‘getting yours’? Why ‘open a can of worms if you cannot shut it’?

Perhaps we should always go away this sort of discuss to a different guide and simply level fingers on the church that hides these truths from us. Perhaps our happiness and freedom are higher underneath their ministrations. If there are non secular forces that may mess with us. There may be a whole lot of benefit in my considerations about this and there’s a legislation of the Magi that claims ‘Know, Will, Dare, Hold Silent’. We have already given a whole lot of locations to search for the solutions to esoteric questions like these and it is likely to be finest to maintain this guide on the tutorial stage of ethnology or anthropological denial of the explanations and realities that truly’, are the character of on a regular basis life. We may discuss legal guidelines and minstrels and make cute poems to amuse the reader and nonetheless have completed loads to assist folks see the tradition was no extra barbaric than we’re. Why did the Druids comply with this legislation and hold a lot of their information in ‘verbal traditions’ such because the Qaballa was comprised of? Have been they actually so afraid of this information being abused by unethical or un-disciplined ‘posers’? Did they actually suppose their soul could be judged as unworthy of progress in the event that they broke this legislation? Absolutely if they might promote the information of shape-shifting and the ‘Misplaced Chord’ they might have made life loads higher for lots of people.

The fact is they might have completed something or had something they wished on the level they rose to the best stage. In reality the ethical energy to have such information is extra necessary than the psychological or chemical information in reference to the ‘Stone’. I’m certain cash and energy is a pursuit that blinds folks by their ego. This ‘blindness’ that closes the soul to ‘what’s’ or as Jesus mentioned ‘the residing father inside’, will forestall any politico from getting their palms on something actually dangerous you may say. That is likely to be true, too. There have been some issues that they knew which might be abused although, and it was (and is) necessary to do what’s RIGHT. That’s one other legislation of the three legal guidelines of the Magi. RIGHT THOUGHT=RIGHT ACTION!

He is dodging and waffling, you may say. What concerning the issues this man mentioned concerning the battle over the soul once we die? What sort of authority do I’ve to disagree with occultists like Madame Blavatsky who heralded my favourite trainer Jiddhu Krishnamurti and helped Annie Besant educate him? Within the ultimate evaluation you may say I am an individual partaking in ‘sophistry’ and ego too. We all know that nobody individual can actually know God or all this stuff so why learn what I’ve to say? For now I select to say that we’re going to cowl the faith of the Druids who had been the dominant drive in hundreds of years of human tradition in a later chapter. However I do not need the reader to suppose the Druids or Kelts had been so ego pushed or fearful as to fret about spirits capturing their souls as soon as that they had grown sufficient to know their identify; in addition they had been ‘protected’ from the lesser obsessive forces of the limbo or interstitiary state of the spirit world which can possess a soul.

Sure, that they had a whole lot of scary legends and tales about evil acts of mischievous and different forces. Generally these tales are just like the accounts of struggle on the friezes or frescoes of the Mayan, who wished folks to know the stupidity of struggle. Generally there have been individuals who wanted this motivation to take the time to study sufficient to guard themself. In all circumstances so long as the Druids had been nonetheless round (earlier than the Roman ‘bounties’) that they had recourse to safety if one thing actually unhealthy occurred. On the identical time there was a higher component of ‘destiny’ and ‘future’ on this faith than I believe is actual. I can’t say for certain that there have been folks on the highest stage who knew higher the import of ‘free will’. I can’t even make certain what diploma or stage of free will or ‘world thoughts’ existed of their collective unconscious (Jung). There are many Celts and other people from submit Druidic occasions who write about Druids as in the event that they know them. A few of these persons are undoubtedly ‘far gone’ in terms of the inevitability of the cyclical nature of the ‘forces’. The Etruscans are good examples of this and the Carthaginians who allied with them or had been their ‘brothers’ certainly had a whole lot of that in them too. However that may be a time when the macho power-trippers had already made nice inroads into the unique nature-worshipping tradition, too.

The historians have little to go together with within the information of historical past. We regularly are left with the phrases of Caesar within the first century BC. to verify that there have been quite a few faculties of Druidry as the perfect recorded perception to earlier occasions. In Gaul the perfect information appears to return no additional than the fifth century BC. and ornamentation is the toughest proof. Gimbutas has the Outdated European alphabet that takes us again a good distance however many students aren’t satisfied as a result of they do not perceive the esoteric symbology. There are those that chuckle and level to Stonehenge or Carnac in Brittany, and naturally the Pyramid they know it is the work of the Pink-Headed League of Megalith Builders. However they can not show a particular connection to the Druids. No less than not within the eyes of those that set up the required requirements of proof within the halls of academia. They observe that the time period ‘goddess-worship’ or Wicca might not even have existed till the 18th century. We will say the time period is not the purpose and the information of historians are propaganda.
