Chalice reminds us of Jesus,
Savior of Men: IHS. The Staurogram of the the heavens. The
Universe is joined as one. This universal transubstantiation also
happens in the twinkling of an eye, when we see him as he is, when we
take the mote out of our own eye to See clearly, when the beam is
removed from the eye, and the judgment stops, and the cycle of
suffering is completed. This may evoke images of the All-Seeing-Eye of the pyramid bringing an end of the ankh's (or the beam's) cyclical and repetitious journey through the zodiac
A similar Chalice also appears in the Jewish star
placed in a circle. Just like the message of the chalice the two
triangles can also represent the union of male
and female. The circle envisions the universe.
|The Serpent eating its
own tail was known in ancient
Egypt as the Ouroboros. In Gnosticism, "this serpent
symbolized eternity and the soul of the world." Plato described "a
self-eating, circular being as the first living thing in the
universe - as an immortal,
beast", saying "the universe was created without legs
and without feet." This is reminiscent of one recent conception of the
universe as being donut shaped. In
Norse mythology a son is
born with the image of a white snake in one eye. "This snake encircled
and bit itself in the tail, and the son was named Sigurd
Snake-in-the-Eye." This might be reminiscent of ancient
Egyptian lore where the Zodiac can be the Iris of the All-Seeing-Eye
over the Pyramid. In Mithran
mystery cults "the
figure of Mithra being reborn... is sometimes seen wrapped with an
indicating his eternal and cyclic nature." In the Hindu faith the
Ouroboros has also been used to describe
the Kundalini energy traveling along the spine. In the Hebrew scriptures Moses called the people
of Israel to look to the serpent of brass upon the
pole to be healed, Numbers
21:8-9. The brass serpent was made from
a metallurgic combination of tin which is the female and copper which
is the male. Jesus
compared himself to this brass serpent on the cross when he said, "As
Moses lifted up the serpent
in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up," John 3:14-15. Look to this serpent. This
is Christ's message of Salvation. In the Gospel of Thomas Chiastic
Pyramid structure the Ouroboros,
as the circle of the
heavens, is wrapped around the Tau-Rho Staurogram. Look to the cross in the sky. Like a scroll
or "body of text" wrapped around the spine of the Staurogram, and
carried like a cross on the back,
the Ouroboros is rich with meaning, Wikipedia Ouroboros.
The Ankh has been a
symbol of life, of the body and
of healing. It can be a picture of heaven above and earth beneath.
The Ankh in the zodiac can function as an astrological calendar. As the
earth and sun move
through the heavens, the spine of the Ankh, like an arrow, can
point through the face of the sun toward the
Zodiac constellation that the Sun blocks
from the earth's field of view. The Ankh
can also picture the all seeing eye over the pyramid. The
All-Seeing-Eye looks down upon the earth with
perfect understanding. This is the portrait of the man
hanging from a thread
in the heavens above the earth on a cross. This is reminiscent of the
in the the Gospel of Thomas Chiastic Pyramid structure. It may also
suggest images of Christ and Judas suspended
above the earth hanging from the tree, Acts
5:30, Matthew 27:5.
with perfect understanding we join heaven and earth, the above and the
below, the inner and the outer, the male and the
female, then this may be illustrated with the all seeing eye within the
pyramid within the zodiac. At this point we are no
longer having the understanding darkened, being alienated
from the life of
God, because of ignorance, because of the blindness of the heart, being
feeling, given over to lewdness, to work all uncleanness with
greediness. For you have not so learned Christ, Ephesians 4:18-19.
The tales of King Arthur and the Knights
of the Round Tables bring to mind pictures of a Round
Table, Excalibur or
the sword in the stone, the holy grail, and the successful destruction
of the serpent
or dragon. The round table is reminiscent of the
circle of the zodiac, of the journey of life,
and of the heavens. The sword in the stone suggests
the Staurogram in the Keystone.
It is a sword that pierces the soul to the very
division of soul and spirit,
cutting through and revealing the divisions we have created, Hebrews
4:12, Luke 2:35.
However, only the worthy can pull the sword from the stone.
Jesus said, "It is to those who are worthy of my mysteries that I tell
The slaying of the dragon (the Ouroboros) suggests the successful
release from the eternal
cycle of suffering. The discovery of the message of the holy grail or
cup may be the effect of this page if the seeker is so
inclined to search.
The modern Unitarian Universalist Logo is
an interesting symbol subtly uniting together as one, though
intentionally, the images of the chalice, ankh, sun, all seeing
eye, zodiac, cross, staurogram, communion
wafer, and the ouroboros.
Notice how the Native American dream catcher
looks a lot like a man. The body is the image of
the universe from the most micro to the most macro. This is the
reality of most of the
images on this page. Know thyself was the relevant and noteworthy
inscription found in the pronaos of the ancient Temple of
Apollo at Delphi.
The all seeing eye on the American Dollar needs no
introduction and is familiar to all.
