"A sense of a Soul Needle gathering Iran's Diamond Trinity with an

Anchoring Stitch to the Russian and Arctic Crown....."

 

In the summer of 2004 i set out on the "Road" on an Inspired Peace Pilgrimage.  Only a month on the "Road" and i found myself on an Island.  The Island is a Power place with an amazing Indigenous History Locally, the First Nations of the North West Pacific and from The Shamanic Culture of Finland expressed through the Kalevala.

At the end of the Summer i felt called to return here.  In between was a 40 year reunion for those of us who had been "kids" in an Expatriate School System associated with "Dez Dam"....or as it became "officially named"  Mohammad Reza Shah Pahlavi Dam in IRAN.

The only one from "my school" was JL........His Parents and Grandparents being "white Russian" had fled to Brazil...where JL was born.  He had lived next door to me in "our" Duplex.  We hadn't spoken much then...he explained at the Reunion, he was just learning English, was shy, they were the only "Russian Family" when the "kids" of the community were Canadian and American.

It was when we sat together at a Reunion feast, there was a profound experience between us....Our Group had ordered a big selection of dishes, and so they were being passed around the table so we could all share.  JL...served me.  Didn't ask...just quietly, sweetly, with chop sticks put the food on my plate.  It was Powerful Energy in the moment.

It wasn't until i started to reflect and research more, the Byzantine Rite, that i was given the Insight as to what my HEART had "registered" in the outwardly mundane moment.

JL Had given me the Eastern Rite of Christ's Table....Served me as "THE BRIDE" at the Wedding Feast......from his own SPIRITUAL PRACTICE AND HERITAGE.

In Carolyn Myss' great work of Spiritual Anatomy she points out the "SACAMENT" of "COMMUNION of the TABLE" is in the Second Chakra....

It was when i listened to a video of hers, and she spoke of the "INTIMATE FINANCIAL Commitments we make", connected to the 2nd that i realized this Was Scorpio's "financial partnership" Energy TANGLED UP AT THE ROUND TABLE.  And at that point in time, my Three Spiritual Companions with SCORPIO RISING, were indeed helping to support me in my call in necessities with food, wood, sometimes money, and strangely enough...TOYS....objects that i could use to have child like "fun" with....

"Root ISSUES" constipating the Divine Circulitory Flow of the TEMPLE in MONEY AND "FAVORITISM" ...AT THE

"SACRAMENT" of the "TABLE Chakra"

...Thich Nhat Hanh's Tenth Mindfulness Training emerged as the antidote to entanglement...

Protecting the Sangha

Aware that the essence and aim of a Sangha is the practice of understanding and compassion, we are determined not to use the Buddhist community for personal gain or profit or transform our community into a political instrument. A spiritual community should, however, take a clear stand against opression and injustice and should strive to change the situation without engagin in partisan conflicts.  (1)

 

Communion of the Table in Roman Rites is also BLOOD*DEATH BODY AND DRINK~ RESURRECTION based......TRANSFORMATION THROUGH RITUAL...certainly a Scorpio TRANSFORMER manifestation

and the Potential "eating ourselves to Renew" energies of Ouroboros

In the Reformation Rite it is seen as the LAST SUPPER ....A Symbol of the NEW COVENANT of CHRIST ...TRANSFORMATION THROUGH THE WRITTEN AND SPOKEN WORD....yet many get stuck in the Crucifixtion Consequence of the"LAST" part of SUPPER...without ACESSING the ABUNDANT LIFE THAT IS MEANT TO FEED US Body, Heart, Soul and Mind in the HERE AND NOW.

The BYZANTINE "TABLE"  RITE, is the HEART CHAKRA...it is the DIVINE MARRIAGE FEAST OF THE EARTH AND COSMOS AS BRIDE IN THE "KINGDOM OF HEAVEN"....in fact, the bride and groom do not exchange vows, in the EASTERN MARRIAGE ritual, because "LOVE" has already ushered them through Heaven's Gate....~_~....AND IN THE MARRIAGE CEREMONY THEY ARE CROWNED as THE DIVINE COUPLE IN "HEAVENLY PLACES"......

So that year, The Great Mother, sent me a CHRIST of childhood Aquaintance, and Common Persian Ground to Awaken my Heart to Heaven's Gate....just as i was moving to this Island of Mythological Heritage.....

With JL spending much of his life in Moscow and the USA Atlantic shore, and a friendship awakening, my Heart learned to Open to Moscow...Half way around the Globe....my heart would practice opening toward Moscow toward the WEST across the Pacific...and then EAST Over Turtle Island to Moscow.

It was JL's call that came through the  Advent 2010 on New Years EVE that had awakened the longing to explore the Significance of BYZANTINE RITE...and Onion Russian Angels....~_~

Last year i discovered St. Sergii....who was considered the "Architect" of Russian IDENTITY through the Byzantine Spiritual Practices.  His Sergiev Posad, holds the Star of David isignia on the Earth Chakra map i meditate with...just above Moscow, and South of Helsinki...on the Rainbow Serpent Trail.....

What led me to Sergiev, was  the "Surfacing into Consciousness" of Aredvi Sura Anahita or "ANAHITA"/ "Haurvatat"...the PERSIAN SOLAR ANGEL of Cosmic Waters, Who Rides A Chariot with Four Horses...Wind, Rain, Snow and Coud 

 

i discovered her Temple near HAMADAN... one of the Places we had stopped in briefly on a couple of trips to  Tehran.    i took a look at the "souvenir" i'd bought  when i was 18 in the summer of 1971.  It is an oval TILE that i bought as a "Hot Plate Coaster"...it has a 6 point SUN with a Face in the Middle...with one fish either "side" and Two Birds above and below the Sun.....To my Awe I realized i had "chosen"  symbols of "Anahita" in the city that is closest to her ancient temple....and QUEEN ESTHER OF THE BIBLE, the SEASON for whom PURIM and the Persian Language is "Sanctified". 

It was then, that i found Dez Dam on Google Earth and Traced the Waters right back to Anahita's Temple Source !

i had drunk  and swam in her waters in our Community Pool...And on an overnight to Dezful, just south of the Zagros foothils on the Plains...we all went to the Dez River to swim.  It was the first time i had ever tried swimming in STRONG CURRENTS...i remember the "fun" exploration of trying to swim upstream and only going Backwards...and of course the learning in the BODY that the best way to Handle Currents, is to go at an ANGLE toward Shore WITH THEM.  It was a joy to recall the memory, because it began to reveal itself as an Experience with a Living Entity...no sooner did we finish our swim, when the WIND KICKED UP, and we Sheltered in the Jeep during the ensuing Sand Storm.  Even in a "Dust proof Jeep"...Earth particles filtered through....and now ...the joy of "knowing" we experienced ANAHITA DRIVING HER CHARIOT OF HORSES with WIND and dust CLOUD leaving their TRAILS BEHIND THEM.....AFTER WE HAD JOYED IN HER WATERS  .  ~___~

Now when i remember the "Dust Devils" that would spin across the earth and the "compound" swimming pool, i "see" EVIDENCE of Anahita and her Horses running by....~_~

 
On May 28th, 2015...JL skyped me from the Dez River !!  He, his Brother and sister~in~law, were visiting the place where our Fathers had worked.  In Good Middle Eastern Hopsitality, they were treated like VIP's as they were shown through the Generating Station and "Electrical Maintenance" areas, not usually shown to the Public.
 
They were staying in Dezful...where the old Roman Empire built Bridge is broken yet still visible across HER River....
where the women washed their clothes, animals loitered and drank, and children played on her shores.

In the Worlds of Archangels...

 ... JL is a SOLAR LIBRA ANGEL of MARRIAGE, HARMONY,  CO~ OPERATION AND GRACE,

Of Justice, and the Scales of the Heart and the Feather...

a DEVOTED FATHER to a Venus Trinity...

and ANAHITA, the PERSIAN VENUS,  

was called upon to WITNESS JUSTICE AMONGST THE NATIONS

with the Cyrus Cylinder

as a SACRED OBJECT and ETHERIC Foundation of COSMIC ORDER...

 

JL now brings ANAHITA's  PRESENT ELECTRICAL FIRE  Blessing

of Cosmic WATERS,

and MILK of the Celestial Cow

to the Land of the Onion Domes....

and Lady Liberty's Starry Nation...

"just by"

"BEING"

the Sacrament of a Byzantine Heart of HEAVEN's GATE

and

ONE of the Many Facets of THEOPHANIA's LIVING SOLAR DIAMOND LIGHT and GOLDEN RING.

And More Thanks

Having had Russian grandparents;

and having absorbed as a child and teenager the richness of the imagery and FEELING of the Byzantine rites 

through my devout grandmother,

I recognize (through your descriptions of the differences in the table ceremonies)

that it is the Byzantine

rather than the Roman church experience,

that is deep in my blood

and my HEART.

 

My Great Grandparents and extended family

came to North America

at the turn of the century

as draft dodgers,

refusing to fight in the czar's army;

---------

(AND therefore, NOT participating in the eventual attack on Finland!!!---NOTE this!---It is significant in regards to the mythic history and the Kalevala and who, in which families, came to live WHERE---and what is their mission & vision for THIS Mothers'Land of the Heart)

---------

....believing that there is another way

to resolve conflicts;

thru' peaceful communication;

thru' being human brothers & sistars;

thru' the HEART.

 

This is also what is deeeeep in me.

There is no need for abuse of another

NEAR OR FAR

thru' illusions of separation, ostracism & silent treatment by ego's fear.

We are brothers & sistars

on all levels of Being; inner AND outer.

What we "spiritually profess",

let us bring that home to where we live.

Live it right here.

Those who are accessible to us in the flesh

are as "worthy" of communication

(and as "friendly")

as those on the other side of this earth.

Let us be that to each other.

Right here.

Weavings

Thank You

for sharing those beautiful images

of humanly-created architecture

within the natural constructions of this Earth.

Seeing them triggers Joy.

As a person whose On-Earth experiences

have been within this one continent and this western culture

I admit that I don't comprehend the terms & names you refer to.

Beautiful Butterfly Language

being read by a 

Caterpillar!

(My own human-being lack of knowledge of cultural & astronomical riches.)

 

I'd LIKE to understand how

"whatever it is"

relates to, & nourishes, my Here-&-Now life,

RIGHT HERE.

 

The beautiful photos

IGNITE a spark

to consider where & how

my own dwelling place

could ecologically

combine

an enriching MEANINGFUL FLOW

of Earth's creations

WITH

human (and star-inspired) constructions.

COZYING IN

within the natural spaces during Advent

leading to

AWAKE!

Maintaining the FLOWING CHARACTER of Dream Time.

 

Leaving behind,

in that seemingly previous lifetime of 3-D experiences,

ILLUSIONS

of being caught within

SELF-CREATED

psychic, etheric

KNOTTED CARPETS.

 

NOW

the silky-smoothness of

FLOWING

within an INTERCONNECTED WEAVING

Side-by-side.

Each in our AUTHENTIC INDIVIDUALITY

Separately ~ Together

Willingly and with (sometimes life-&-death-feeling)

COURAGE

 

TRUSTING in

SEPARATENESS AND CONNECTEDNESS

EXISTING SIMULTANEOUSLY

IN OUR ONE-OF-A-KIND

MANIFESTATIONS

OF OUR OWN SOULS.

 

AUTHENTIC INDIVIDUALS!

 

SELF-DEFINING

 

FREE OF CONTROLLING, CONFINING KNOTS of

DEFINITIONS.

 

IN AWE

of the kaleidoscope

MIRACLES

of

HUMAN / MIND/ BODY/ SPIRIT DIVERSITY.

 

Thank you, again, for the beautiful imagery

and for pointing out the contrast

of carpets and weavings!
