Part IV: Logos: From the Raven to the Dove

by Jakob Thelen on October 23, 2014

the ark Part IV: Logos: From the Raven to the DoveSection One: Fibonacci and the Alchemy of Noah

Mem and The Flood

Returning to 7 and 33, aside from connecting the Golden Section to Creation and Redemption, they are also related to 13 through the Hebrew alphabet itself: 7+33=40; 40=Mem, the 13th letter (recall that the 7th Fibonacci number is 13, and the sum of all 7 is 33). It’s symbolic correlate is water, and its esoteric meaning is death – which brings us to the Flood of Noah:

For yet seven days, and I will cause it to rain upon the earth forty days and forty nights; and every living substance that I have made will I destroy from off the face of the earth.” - Genesis 7:4 [click to continue…]

8th Part III: Creation: Saturn, The Cube, The Sabbath Day and The BlackeningThe Seven Planets: Their Names and Gods

Returning again to the numbers of the first segment, from a cosmological standpoint the correspondence between seven and thirteen makes perfect sense: the 7-day Creation corresponds to the 7 Classical Planets, and Aries (the Ram) could be viewed as either the 1st or the 13th Zodiac. Certain signs will be explored in great detail in a later installment.

The seven days of the week in English and other languages have been named for each of the seven ‘planets’ of antiquity [from Gr. “planetese,” wanderer], and are also named for characters of Classical Myth. [click to continue…]

The Wisdom of Bereisheet “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.” – Genesis 1:1 This sentence, in it’s original Hebrew, has a standard gematria value of 2,701: It is the 73rd triangular and the 37th hexagonal number. It only has two factors, 37 and 73 (the two values of Wisdom seen in […]

Ciphers and Cryptography: A Very Brief Foundation The use of ciphers and subtle allusions in mysticism, philosophy, literature and religion, though generally ignored or unknown in modernity (by and large), are indeed well-established practices (such as the three literary practices in Qabalah, all of which involve some form of cryptography: transpositioning; substitution; skip-codes; re-arrangements of […]

The Journey of Being

In Merry Gnosis I talked of the Journey of the Soul as the big one and it is – for the soul. But there is a larger journey we are all undertaking, a much larger journey. We’ll call this the Journey of Being. Here we view this journey on a dimensional basis. Sacred Geometry comes […]

Neutralizing Generational Conditioning through Meditation

Thumbnail image for Neutralizing Generational Conditioning through Meditation

“Hindu” is said to be the oldest religion on the planet. As an avid student of the 5000 year old plus Bhagavad-Gita (Hindu Bible), let me quote the verse around which the entire Bhagavad-Gita is premised: “The Vades’ concern are with the three gunas (forces of Nature). Be without the three gunas, O Arjuna, (you, […]

The Pentagrammaton

The word Pentagram we all know to be a star. It derives from the word Pentagrammaton. We also know penta means 5. But what about the “gram” part? In the word “tetragrammaton” the tetra portion is a combining form of 4 and tetragrammaton itself means 4 letters, YHWH, the Spirit, Mental, Astral and Physical Planes […]

Merry Gnosis

August 8, 2014

What kind of title is that? The answer to the title lies with the Sun. As I’m sure you have already guessed it has something to do with Christmas as well. From my last post I mentioned that the “mas” from Christmas is from the Egyptian “mes” which means birth so Christmas is the Christ […]

Fulfilling the Purpose of Life—Evolution through Happiness

August 1, 2014
Thumbnail image for Fulfilling the Purpose of Life—Evolution through Happiness

Consider the following: 1) How often is my entire physiology, small of back, inside thighs and eyes treated to stress-free non engagement, my mind to utter silence and respiratory system to minimal functioning? 2) How often do I enjoy a brain holiday: disengaged from psychological time and repetitive thought pattern work-outs? 3) How often does […]

So what’s in a number?

Thumbnail image for So what’s in a number?

We all use numbers constantly, no question about that. But numbers meant so much more to the ancients. Why? First let me explain who I’m talking about when I say “ancients”.  I want to thank B.K. for bringing this to my attention.  I didn’t answer this very well so I’ll try better here.  We can […]

Is There a Middle Ground?

July 18, 2014

If you’ve been reading my articles you will quickly see that I don’t talk about love, forgiveness, compassion, harmony, happiness, patience etc. Why? They are all very beautiful qualities. What I do go on and on (and on) about is truth and consciousness. The good qualities above and all the rest fall under the umbrella […]

Hanging around, upside down

Have you ever seen a tree growing downward? If you’re familiar with Kabbalism then you have. This is probably common knowledge but yes, it’s the Tree of Life. It grows downward from The Source toward matter with the brain as it’s’ roots and the spine as the tree. Of course the opposite of this is […]

The Truth Will Set You Free

Why are Christians getting so sick? During my life I have been around many people whom I would classify hardcore Christians. I began to notice something in common with all of them – namely, that the more intense their Christian convictions, the more they suffered from disease, illness and psychological problems. I didn’t really put […]

Samadhi: Ancient Wisdom in the Modern Space Age

While nations raced neck and neck to land on the moon and plant the first lags, little did they realize destiny’s greater purpose to this “one small step for mankind”. The first hint of anything unusual occurring was the photo of earth captured 20,000 miles away as a bright, clear “blue marble” floating amongst the […]

Why Jesus Tells the Disciples to Cast Their Net on the Right Side

Most of us are familiar with the scene in John chapter 21 where Jesus tells the disciples to cast their net on the right side of the boat to catch a bounty of fish. There’s a great deal of symbolic meaning here that I believe is missed. In today’s post we’ll look at this scene […]

Besides being a popular ride at Disneyland, “Spaceship Earth” describes the beautiful little planet we share with every other living thing aboard it. From ants to elephants, from in-laws to out-laws, we are all on the same ride. Thousands of years ago the author of the Book of Job was aware that the earth was […]

Many people in our religious culture are afraid to death of a being that the Bible and the Koran call “Satan the Devil.” Throughout the Bible, this being has wreaked havoc in the lives of the saints of God. This evil spirit wants to sift the Apostle Peter as wheat. This spirit takes everything Job […]

“Be ye perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect” — Matthew 5.48 This instructional scripture is referring to cleansing of generational and self-inflicted programming known as subconsciousness. The scripture is making the point : Be transformed within consciousness, through exposure to Pure Consciousness. It’s important to understand that we’re (finite mind) not perfecting anything, […]

Is There Only One Holy Book?

Thumbnail image for Is There Only One Holy Book?

When I was a newly saved Christian attending an evangelistic church, I was taught in Sunday school that there was only one holy book – the Bible.  If I had to burn all the books in the church library except one, I would be expected to choose the Bible.  I have gone through several spiritual […]

Esoteric Muslims: The Sufi

June 3, 2014

Whereas orthodox Islam focuses exclusively on “submission to Allah”, the esoteric sects of Sufi and Druze also focus on “union with Allah”. To the esoteric believers, the Islamic religious system of Quran, hadith, and all the prophets are but stepping stones to a higher spiritual awareness. This is reminiscent of the Christian belief that the […]
