Humanity On The Pollen Path
Symbols Of The Chakras
And The Midpoint
by Joseph E. Mason
In 1992, after two years of "coincidental" experiences that often related to dreams and/or crop circle formations, an incredible chain of many "coincidences' began. I read Joseph Campbell's, The Inner Reaches of Outer Space, and was impressed with the information concerning the "midpoint of the chakras" symbolism found in diverse myths in various forms. The midpoint of the seven chakras is often expressed as three and a half.
At the time, I was reading the Bible for basically the first time, although I had read a few verses over the years. Right after reading about the above mentioned concepts, I came to Revelation 11:9 and 11:11, which speak of the two olive trees/lampstands that lie dead for "three days and a half," and then stand up on their feet when a breath of life from God enters them.
The verses were not only "coincidental" with the concepts in Joseph Campbell's book, but related to other dreams, coincidences and events. Over a year prior, I had read a report in a crop circle newsletter, that two apple trees shook by themselves for no apparent reason, at a school cricket match in Oxfordshire in 1990. A half circle had appeared in the plants next to the trees, and a full circle had appeared some distance beyond. Dreams and other reports of "two trees" had followed. In one report it was said that two people in Leon, France saw a UFO "suck up" two large trees out of the ground. I felt the location was significant, because I had read that the Bishop of that city had compiled the first New Testament around 180 A.D.
A number of dreams and "coincidences" had happened relating to the "11:11 Doorway" material of Solara.
I have written other articles about these subjects, which I will link below. This page details the various myths that express the "midpoint of the seven" in the various forms, and the dream-coincidences that led me to a quite convincing theory about the meaning of the Book of Revelation. The following part begins with a review of Joseph Campbell's insights.
The Weighing of the Heart
The Book of the Dead of Kenna
This is one of the many depictions from the ancient Egyptians showing the heart being weighed against the feather. They believed that, after death, a person is guided to the Judgment Hall for this weighing of the heart. According to James Churchward in The Sacred Symbols of Mu, the feather is said to represent "truth" because it can be so easily blown away. According to Joseph Campbell, in The Inner Reaches of Outer Space, the feather is symbolic of Maat, goddess of the moral order of the universe.
Note the seven spherical nodules along the pole from near the bottom on up to the crossbeam. They are thought to correspond to the seven chakras of the human body. There is another nodule above the beam, which may represent a sphere of timeless consciousness beyond the earth plane.
Note also that the the composite animal's snout cuts across the pole between the third and forth nodules. The platform of the Judgment seat is also at that level. This seems to indicate the critical point between the third chakra and the forth, the heart chakra.
The baboon on the Judgment seat is one form of the god Thoth, counterpart of the Greek Hermes (Mercury to the Romans), who guides the soul after death. Baboons bark with the rising of the sun.
If the heart weighs more than the feather, the dead soul is devoured by the "Swallower," the composite beast, a mixture of crocodile, hippopotamus, and lion. If the heart is found to be lighter than the feather, the soul is conducted by Toth to Osiris's throne by the Waters of Eternal Life.
Joseph Campbell wrote that in terms of the kundalini, the message could hardly be clearer . . . if the aims of the deceased in life were no higher than those of Chakra three (the animal instincts), the Swallower claims the soul.
The implication is that if one has not reached the heart chakra level of love and compassion during a lifetime, the person must be reborn, that is, reincarnated back on earth, in order to try again. Otherwise, the soul is free to move on to higher planes of existence.
Personally, I believe that Thoth represents a part of the self, probably the Higher Self, and that we "judge" ourselves after death. The decision is made after a "time," to reincarnate or to move on to another plane.
Coiled Serpent - China, Chou Dynasty,
Period of the Warring States, c. 500-250 BC
This ancient bronze serpent is coiled into exactly 3 1/2 turns. Joseph Campbell suggests that this may be evidence from pre-Buddhist China, "of an original knowledge in some way related to the much later tantric development in India, for the metaphorical coiled serpent said to be sleeping in the muladhara is described as of 3 1/2 turns." The muladhara is said to be the "root base" chakra, the lowest of the seven. I have read elsewhere that the Kundalini is symbolised by a serpent coiled into 3 1/2 turns.
The Pollen Path - Navaho Sand Painting
The above Navaho sand painting is used in a blessing ceremony. Joseph Campbell wrote: "The conformity of the imagery of this particular sand painting to the sense and symbolised experiences of the yogic sushumna is certainly astonishing, but not more so than many other concordances in the myths and ritual arts of peoples across the world."
He explained that the bounded area parallels archetypal symbols of the "enclosed park," such as the interior of a temple, or an Earthly Paradise. The word, "paradise," comes from the Greek "paradeisos, meaning "enclosed park." The Old Persian word, "pairi," means "around," and "daeza," means "wall," giving "pairidaeza," meaning "enclosure."
The sand painting shows a corn plant with seven markers, which, according to Joseph Campbell, correspond to the seven chakras. From the bottom-upward, they are marked by the root, the five leaves, and the tassel. The two leaves marking the third and fourth chakras also show ears of corn. A lightning bolt from above strikes at the fourth marker, which is in the center. This corresponds, he wrote, to the vajra, "the thunderbolt of enlightenment" of Hindu and Buddhist iconography, which exactly fits with the fourth chakra, anahata, "where the sound is heard that is not made by any two things striking together."
Joseph Campbell continues:
"In Navaho myths and legends the god known as Sun Bearer, Tsohanoai, possesses lightning-arrows. His domicile is above, in the sky, and when his twin sons, conceived of him by an earthly virgin, Changing Woman, arrived to receive from him the power and weapons with which to rid the world of monsters, the solar power of which they then became possessed was so great that when they returned to earth it had to be modified by a deity known as Hastyeyalti (Talking God), maternal grandfather of the pantheon, in whom male and female powers are combined. In the sand painting the realm of operation of this second god is represented by a modified rainbow of two colors, red and blue, symbolic respectively of solar energy and of water and the moon. The high place onto which the twins descended from the heavenly house of their father to earth was the central mountain of the world (locally, Mt. Taylor in New Mexico; height, 11,302 feet) and the corresponding station in the painting is at Chakra 4, anahata. Moreover, the root of the corn plant is threefold, like Yuktatriveni in the muladhara. The pollen path commences lower right and is of two colors, like the modified rainbow (or like the moon, which is of both matter and light). But at the turn between the Spirit Bringers the path becomes yellow and single (like the fire of blended breaths exploding to ascend the sushumna; after which, in a sacred way, to an accompaniment of chants and prayer, the sanctuary is entered."
The footprints show the path taken by initiate. The two figures below the enclosure are the guardian Spirit Bringers, which are similar to portal guardians in other traditions. Their hands suggest that the center path of the three roots is preferred, which leads along the stalk of the corn plant. The roots correspond to the root chakra, chakra 1, which is known as Yuktatriveni, "Three River Junction." The rainbow with the same two colors indicate an alternate path of unbalance of the duality attributes, yet meets the central path at the key marker, the heart chakra. Above the heart center, the path remains single, the color of pollen. The rainbow seems to correspond to concepts in the eastern tradition of Yoga. The subject breathes out of one nostril and breathes inward with the other. The breaths are imagined to go out one spine channel (or "snake)" and then back in through the other channel. The channels (or "spine snakes), called ida and pingala, are said to interlace like a double-helix, around the chakra centers. The two channels are associated with sun and moon, or male and female.
The two figures inside the enclosure are spiritual messengers, known as "Dontso, "big Fly," and in his second aspect, "Little Wind." The black and white colors represent male and female energies.
During the Pollen Path ceremony, the Navaho chant:
In the house of life I wander
Joseph Campbell speaks of the normal course of a lifetime, according to the yogic psychological schedule . . .
"the biological urges generated from these three pelvic spinal centers (the lower three chakras) mature naturally in succession as the body develops through its first three and a half decades. These alone, have supplied the motivations of historical man, his effective moral systems, and his nightmare of world history. They are the centers of the basic urges, furthermore, that mankind shares with the beasts - namely, (1) to survive alive by feeding on other lives, (2) to generate offspring, and (3) to conquer and subdue. Unrestrained by any control system, these become devastating, as the history of the present century surely tells. For as declared in the Indian Arthasastra, Textbook on the Art of Winning: 'When uncontrolled by virtue (dharma) and the big stick (danda), men become wolves unto men.'
"The elevation of the human will to aims transcendent of this bestial order of life requires, according to the yogic model, an awakening that will not be of the pelvic region, but of chakra 4, which is of the heart."
Joseph Campbell also pointed out that Jesus was about thirty-five years of age at the time of his crucifixion, as was The Buddha when he was awakened under the Bodhi Tree. Thus, thirty-five years in the life of a man of "threescore years and ten," as the Bible speaks of seventy years, (such as in Genesis 46:27) may be yet another symbol of the chakras and the midpoint.
Joseph Campbell gave other examples of this symbolism in the book and explained them at length. It seems this is indeed an elementary idea found all over the world.
I was surprised when I happened to read Isaiah 52:12. The verse is strikingly similar to the Pollen Path chant of the navaho:
"For you shall not go out in haste,
and you shall not go in flight,
for the Lord will go before you,
and the God of Israel will be your rear guard."
The Revelation 11:11 Coincidence -
Humanity On The Pollen Path
Soon after reading the above material, I continued my study of the Bible, and came to Revelation 11:4-11:
(4) "These are the two olive trees and the two lampstands which stand before the Lord of the earth. (5) And if any one would harm them, fire pours from their mouth and consumes their foes; if any one would harm them, thus he is doomed to be killed. (6) They have power to shut the sky, that no rain may fall during the days of their prophesying, and they have power over the waters to turn them into blood, and to smite the earth with every plague, as often as they desire. (7) And when they have finished their testimony, the beast that ascends from the bottomless pit will make war upon them and conquer them and kill them, (8) and their dead bodies will lie in the street of the great city which is allegorically called Sodom and Egypt, where their Lord was crucified. (9) For three days and a half men from the peoples and tribes and tongues and nations gaze at their dead bodies and refused to let them be placed in a tomb, (10) and those who dwell on the earth will rejoice over them and make merry and exchange presents, because these two prophets had been a torment to those who dwell on the earth. (11) But after the three and a half days a breath of life from God entered them, and they stood up on their feet, and great fear fell on those who saw them."
Note: The version of the Bible quoted from on these pages is the Revised Standard Version of the Bible, an authorized revision of the American Standard Version, published in 1901, which was a revision of the King James Version, published in 1611.
As I stated at the beginning of this article, several "coincidences" interacted with these verses. My immediate feelings were that the verses are another form of the midpoint of the chakra symbolism, and the meaning was that humanity has been in a cycle time that corresponds to a path through the chakras. Humanity has been on the pollen path. We are near the midpoint, and the leap to the heart chakra level of consciousness evolution.
My secondary feelings were that this was simply a set of accidental "coincidences," and that I was making my own myth from it. But, I had experienced the coincidences for some two years by that time, and I had developed a confidence in them. So often, other seeming confirmations of the "coincidental" material would come after the initial idea. This case was no exception, in fact, it became like a bombardment of coincidences that makes me quite confident that the basic idea is correct.
Contact With Pat Delgado
I will now explain more about various things that happened prior to reading the Joseph Campbell book, and having the "coincidence" with Revelation 11. I had established contact with crop circle researcher, Pat Delgado, near the end of 1991. I sent him several packets of material over a period of months. I began to receive the "CPR" newsletter shortly after contacting Pat. At that time, Pat was a partner of Colin Andrews in their Circles Phenomenon Research project.
The "CPR Newsletter," number 3, of April 1991, had this report, which I believe was written by Colin:
"NOW A LIKING FOR APPLES - C.A.
I was still investigating a detailed report from a lecturer at a private school in Oxfordshire about a commotion coming from apple trees in the grounds of the school, when I received a further report involving apples from our MUFON contacts in British Columbia. I was already aware of the most bizarre events that Pat was investigating in the orchards of Kent (see Pat's report).
Last summer I had returned to my home in Andover, Hampshire, from a long day at the now famous surveillance operation 'Blackbird' being held in the neighbouring county of Wiltshire, when a man called at the door. He had travelled down from an area in Oxfordshire where mysterious circles have been appearing for many years now. He told me he was a lecturer at a private school in that county and that on a calm, sunny day during a school cricket match, which was open to parents in the large grounds, came sheer violence. A commotion was coming from the apple trees situated about two hundred meters away on the edge of the playing field. The whole area was still except two of the trees, and they were being shaken violently, as if a huge hand was intent upon shaking the apples to the ground. 'Was it a whirlwind?', I asked. He replied, 'That would be the rational solution but this was most strange - no debris rose into the sky, the onset and cessation was so abrupt. It did not tally with the kind of whirlwinds I have seen before'. And the real surprise was to come. He continued, 'Several of us watching the cricket match were so taken aback, we walked over to the trees. By this time the cricket had stopped and the crowd focused upon the unusual events close by. A half circle had formed on the edge of the wheat field just the other side of the wire perimeter fence and adjacent to the two apple trees involved. The missing half would have encompassed the trees. Looking further out across the wheat field, we could see a complete circle about 30 feet in diameter with clear cut edges, the same kind of circle which has appeared in the area before'. He said he had travelled to tell me about this because he was convinced there was something more than nature involved. He said, 'I am a science lecturer and everything in me said I should be able to explain this away in scientific terms - but I can't - THAT WAS NO WHIRLWIND'. He repeated the latter several times. He said, 'I cannot make out why no debris was going up in the air, nor was it spewing out into the surrounding area. It was tightly contained in this amazing energy field which shook those trees in rapid and severe jolts. Consistent pulsating frequency appeared to be involved'.
As if this were not difficult enough for us to appreciate, the report from British Columbia was even more unusual. Williams Lake, at 5 p.m. on 1st September 1990 following severe television interference, it was noticed that a 39' dia. ring had appeared in the yard outside and just 12 feet from the window. It was also 12 feet from an embankment beyond. The band forming the ring was 6" wide and was firmly pushed into the ground, pulverising several rocks. That same night at 4:10 a.m. the man in the house looked across to his son's adjacent property and saw a large orange cone of light. The wide part was about 75' diameter, the pointed end was focused on an apple tree in the yard. The following day on inspecting the tree, they found no sign of anything on the ground around the tree but ALL THE APPLES WERE MISSING. About 75 to 100 apples had been on the tree the day before. Calculations we have carried out show that apples up to 70% growth stage are less likely to be plucked off a tree than the leaves when subjected to wind velocity capable of removal - in other words, the leaves should have gone first, and where did the apples go anyway?"
Some days after reading this report, I had a dream of two evergreen trees swaying back and forth. I remembered hearing that there were two trees in the Garden of Eden . . . the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, and the Tree of Life. We often think of the apple being the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge. A half circle could represent one half of a duality. In The Sacred Symbols of Mu, ancient glyphs of a circle bisected by a line, are said to represent the duality of creation.
The Sacred Symbols of Mu is full of ancient symbols. James Churchward gathered them from various parts of the world over a period of some fifty years. He presents the theory that most of the ancient symbols came from a large island in the Pacific, called Mu, the Mother Land, that sank below the water about twelve thousand years ago. My feeling is that the island of Mu is a metaphor, regardless of the historical facts. To me, it symbolizes the place of our spiritual origins, which is in another dimension of reality. The symbols and myths all over the world are similar because mankind has never been completely separated from the that other world. Our primary connection to that world is in the sleep state. I basically agree with the theories of Carl Jung. Mankind has always had a collective unconscious and archetypal symbols are part of it. Carl Jung also posited the theory of "synchronicity," which is basically the same as meaningful coincidence. I believe my own dreams and experiences support the theory. My research into the dreams and experiences of other people also support the theory, as do the crop circle and UFO/ET phenomena.
I noticed in the second report about the apple trees, that the event happened on the 51st anniversary of World War Two, which started on that date in 1939. The diameter of the ring was 39 feet, perhaps another hint indicating the war. I had read that the Aztecs had a century of 52 years, and they believed that the world could come to the end at the close of a century. So, during the 51st year they watched for signs and worried. I also read that the Cortez landed with his men just before the end of the Aztec century, and various events in the sky were thought to be portents of the end. The world did not end, of course, but the landing of the Europeans did spell the end of their civilization. Perhaps the event in Canada was intended as a symbolic clue concerning our warring cycle of time, perhaps even, that the cycle is near its end.
When I read Revelation 11 the following year, I recalled the report about the two apple trees shaking, and the other report about two trees in Leon being "sucked up" into a UFO. The trees in Revelation are olive trees, not apple trees, but the associations still seemed significant.
I was somewhat startled when I read Revelation 18:14 -
"The fruit for which thy soul longed has gone from thee, and all thy dainties and thy splendor are lost to thee, never to be found again!"
Solara's 11:11 Doorway
I first learned of Solara's 11:11 Doorway in early 1991. I felt right away that it was related to a dream. This concerns some young friends of my sons.
Jason told me that he dreamed that he, Cliff, and another boy took a drive in my Honda Accord. They stopped, and Cliff climbed a telephone pole. He was shocked by electric sparks, and jumped down. Some months later, Cliff called me and said that he saw a notice on a telephone pole, that seemed to be saying things like I say, about a Great Change being near. The notice was from a group called "Solara," and "The 11:11 Doorway."
I called the number on notice, and spoke with a young man named Joel. A short time later I went with two relatives to meet Joel at a restaurant. Joel explained that he was teaching about this concept of Solara, and gave me a small pamphlet about it. Looking at it quickly, I saw that the depictions showed an eight-pointed star as the "Great Central Sun," in "The Old Spiral," and and a twelve-pointed star as the "Greater Central Sun System," in "The New Spiral of the 11:11." Lines were drawn between the earth and the "11:11 Birdstar," on to a circle of "Octave 7," then another circle of "Octave 11, on toward the "Beyond the Beyond," and the "Greater Central Sun System.
Joel said that the material did not come from channeling . . . it came for Solara's "direct recall of ancient memories." He drew a diagram representing the opening of the "11:11 Doorway," and explained it. It is centered on the three stars in the belt of Orion. Two "V" shapes, one inverted, are conceived as energy moving from above and below the belt, to overlap, forming a diamond shape in the center as the "Doorway." It would open on January 11, 1992, providing that at least 144,000 "activated Star-Borne" unite together in conscious Oneness worldwide. The activation was to be centered at the Great Pyramids in Giza, due to the powerful alignment there of both the "Master Grid (A Grid) and B Grid vortexes." The Doorway will close on December 31, 2011. If the Doorway opened, it would be an opportunity for "our mass ascension into new realms of consciousness."
I told Joel about my various dreams and coincidences involving eight-pointed and twelve-pointed stars. I drew some quick diagrams for him, and explained the meaning that I had gathered from them. To me, they represented two versions of humanity united in the future.
I read the pamphlet more carefully when I arrived back home. There were a number of other little connections to my experience. For example, I had some dreams about music. In one dream, musical tones sounded as I saw crop circles forming in a field.
On the last page of the pamphlet, under the title, "TEMPLE INVISIBLE #8," this was written:
"A Directive on the New:
Create the key in geometric patterning of overlapping triangles within triangles. Thus the door opens and the new spiral is made visible."
This seemed a bit uncanny, because the twelve-pointed stars that I drew, were based on overlapping triangles. I also remembered that a Tantric Yantra that I drew, had many overlapping triangles.
Another statement on the same page was this:
"All bonds within the third dimensional patterning of duality must be loosened in order to free yourself to make this leap."
Various dreams and crop circles, in my view, were indicating some kind of unbalance in the duality during the time cycle, and a duality balance with the future change. In 1992, I wrote an article for The Dream Network Journal, in which I reported a few dreams and crop circle formations that seemed to indicate the duality balance.
It was interesting that there were a number of similarities in Solara's material to my own experiences. Yet the interpretations about the earth changes were different.
A relative gave me a book called, The Book of Knowledge, The Keys of Enoch, not long after learning of Solara. I found that there were a number of similarities between the two, yet they also seemed quite different.
When I first read Revelation 11 the following year, and realized the "3 1/2" coincidence with the Joseph Campbell book, verse 11:11, where the two trees stand up after the 3 1/2 days, seemed even more "coincidental."
The idea of an "ascension" seemed to fit with a dream told to me by Randy, a mechanic where I worked, around September, 1990:
"I was standing in a field with my family. Then the whole field was filled with people. Everyone looked up in the sky and saw halos coming down, one for each person. The halos came down over the people's heads, and started picking them up. I looked up and saw my halo going up. I said, 'Oh no! I'm not being taken!' Then, the halo came back down, and picked me up."
I did not think of it for quite some time, but the verse that follows Revelation 11:11 also fits with an ascension. Revelation 11:12 -
"Then they heard a loud voice from heaven saying to them, 'Come up hither!' And in the sight of their foes they went up to heaven in a cloud."
Other Biblical References
When I began to have many dreams in 1990, I also had voice messages, often in the morning just before I awoke. I recorded them in my notebooks, and later put most of them in a list (up to October 1990). Dee recently typed the list and put it on a web page. One day in 1992 I reviewed the messages on the list. Message number 385 on August 18, 1992 was this:
"Trinity (saw 11:2)"
I then reread Revelation 11:1-3 -
(1)"Then I was given a measuring rod like a staff, and I was told: 'Rise and measure the temple of God and the altar and those who worship there, (2) but do not measure the court outside the temple; leave that out, for it is given over to the nations, and they will trample over the holy city for forty-two months. (3) And I will grant my two witnesses power to prophesy for one thousand two hundred and sixty days, clothed in sackcloth.'"
After a few moments, it stuck me that 42 months is three and a half years. I then divided 1260 by 3.5 to find 360. I had read that 360 was called a "prophetic year, and later that the Hebrew calendar had 30-day months, with an adjusting month every seven years. We use 360-degrees in circles, but I did not know if the ancient Hebrews used that system.
As I had just read my dream-voice list, I recalled that one of the messages mentioned the number 42. I found it again, and saw that it was message number 420 on September 12, 1992 -
"_____was in the sign. The children were born in the sign of 42."
I then calculated the number of messages between the two messages -
420 - 385 = 35
I found this quite "coincidental," as I remembered Joseph Campbell's theory about 35 years in the life of a man of threescore years and ten being a form of the midpoint of the chakras symbolism.
Revelation 13:5 also speaks of 42 months -
"And the beast was given a mouth uttering haughty and blasphemous words, and it was allowed to exercise authority for forty-two months; . . . "
Significantly, the verses in Revelation 11:2, 11:3, 11:9, 11:11 and 13:5 all refer to 3 1/2 in various forms, one as months in 3 1/2 years, another as days in 3 1/2 years, and two as simply 3 1/2 days. Also significant, the verses seem to suggest a cycle of time.
The 1260 days are also mentioned in Revelation 12. After speaking of the woman with child, and the dragon that waits to devour her child, Revelation 12:6 continues . . .
"and the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by
God, in which to be nourished for one thousand two hundred and sixty days."
The period of time in the wilderness is given in a different way in Revelation 12:14:
"But the woman was given the two wings of the great eagle that she might fly from the serpent into the wilderness, to the place where she is to be nourished for a time, and times, and half a time."
A footnote concerning the verse refers to Daniel 7:25 and 12:7. Chapter 7 of Daniel, starting at verse 23, speaks of the fourth beast, a fourth kingdom, the devouring, trampling and breaking of the earth, the ten horns, ten kings, and another that shall arise after them and put down the three kings. Then . . .
(7:25) "He shall speak words against the Most High, and shall wear out the saints of the Most High, and shall think to change the times and the law; and they shall be given into his hand for a time, two times, and half a time."
Chapter 10 of Daniel speaks of his vision of seeing a man clothed in linen by the Tigris river, who told him many things. In Chapter 12 the man in the vision speaks of the time Michael will arise, a time of great trouble. Some of the people who sleep will awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and contempt. The wise will shine and some will turn many to righteousness. But Daniel is told to shut up the words, and seal the book until the time of the end. Then two others stood on the bank of the stream. Daniel asked the man clothed in linen, "How long shall it be till the end of these wonders?" Then . . .
(12:7) "The man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the stream, raised his right hand and his left hand toward heaven; and I heard him swear by him who lives for ever that it would be for a time, two times, and half a time; and that when the shattering of the power of the holy people comes to an end all these things would be accomplished."
It seems clear that "a time, two times, and half a time," is yet another form of the 3 1/2 symbolism, as 1 + 2 + 1/2 = 3 1/2. In this case, there is no set period of days or years. Perhaps it means that the changes will come when the human race has reached the required level of consciousness evolution, however long that will be.
Around 1993 I found another form of the 3 1/2 in the Bible. A corresponding friend, Pablo, sent a letter to me that seemed quite coincidental. He spoke of the Biblical verse, James 2:13, saying that it could be re-stated as, "To one who does not practice compassion, karma shall be relentless, yet compassion proves to even stronger than karma." It was my son, T.J.'s, birthday, February 13 (2-13), the day before Valentine's Day. My son had taught me a big lesson about understanding and forgiveness several years prior. I went on to read James 5:17, 18 -
(17) "Elijah was a man of like nature with ourselves and he prayed fervently that it might not rain, and for three years and six months it did not rain on the earth. (18) Then he prayed again and the heaven gave rain, and the earth brought forth its fruit."
There is a footnote reference to Luke 4:25, which has almost the same words. This is speaking of the story about Elijah in 1 Kings 17:1 and 18:45.
There is yet another Biblical reference to the 3 1/2. I found it in a special "dream-coincidence" way many months after finding the Biblical associations listed above. I will explain it later in this story, in its proper sequence. But I will give the Biblical verse here . . . Daniel 9:27.
Pablo's Amazing Dream
In late 1992, I wrote a letter to Pablo. He had asked about my ideas concerning a great earth change. I began explaining Solar's ideas about the 11:11 Doorway, intending to explain the Revelation 11:11 connection. I drew the stars of Orion, showing the Doorway opening. Suddenly, I recalled that Pablo had sent a dream earlier in the year that might apply, something about seven liberations. I found and reread the dream:
"Krishnamurti and I keep vigil over a deceased person. He comments that after 35 years, 7 other psychological liberations followed. The housekeeper complains about her lack of money."
I was astonished. The dream seemed to follow the symbolism of Revelation 11:11. Keeping vigil over the deceased person for 35 years, seemed QUITE similar to the two trees laying dead for three days and a half. Then, I looked at the date of the dream, January 11, 1992. That is the EXACT date Solara said the Doorway would open! In his next dream, Pablo was told that the earth is about to undergo its shift. And, he did not know of Solara, nor did he believe in a big change.
Krishnamurti was the "Great World Teacher," associated at one time with the Theosophy movement. Pablo was fond of his writings. The name Krishnamurti came from Krishna, the most ancient Christ-like figure in historical legend.
The Harlot of Revelation
Other dreams, coincidences, and inspirations came, that seemed to solidify this theory concerning the midpoint of the chakras. Like other parts of this story, the way the ideas came is somewhat difficult to explain clearly, especially in a brief way. For now, I will simply list a few of the ideas, without telling the entire story of how they came to me.
The harlot of Babylon in Revelation 17 seems to be major in St. John's vision. I contemplated the possible meanings, keeping various dreams in mind.
The harlot seems to represent the energy of our time cycle, which appears to be quite negative, yet it is a learning experience. My dreams indicated that Goddess figures correspond symbolically to an electrical generator supplying power to the "motor" of physical reality and mankind. Another idea is that creation can be symbolised by a string instrument, such as the fiddle or guitar. The Goddess-like "body" of the instrument supplies the strumming power, while we, in the projected physical reality, do the "tuning" at the tip. In this sense, we are co-creators of the reality, yet the strumming source also has its effect.
Various dreams seemed to link marriage, sex, or the like, to a duality bond, that is, the male aspect has a corresponding female aspect. The two aspects seem related in this way:
Male - left brain, rational-analytical thought, daytime, waking consciousness, earth plane, projecting outward or radiating. Acting upon. The sun or a star. A square or cube.
Female - right brain, dreaming-intuitive inspirational thought, nighttime, sleeping-unconscious, dream-spirit plane, contracting inward, or receiving, Being acted upon. The moon or Venus. A circle or sphere.
Feminine figures are often associated with spiders and weaving. One sense of this seems to be "weaving" our fates. The implication is that events in our life are planned in the dream realm, and have much more control than we normally suspect.
In Revelation 17, the kings of the earth "fornicate" with the harlot, become drunk on her wine, and give over their "royal power" to the beast. She is "seated upon many waters," that are "peoples and multitudes and nations and tongues." (Rev 17:15). The wine produces an anger or fury. This seems to indicate that the "generated" influence of our duality bond with the harlot instills in us a consciousness of anger, leading to violence and war.
Some Biblical verses speak of fornicating with the daughters of the harlot. The sense of this, I felt, was that the "daughter" is the "harlot" feminine aspect within us during the karmic time cycle.
In Joseph Campbell's book, he calls our cycle of time a "warring" cycle. It started, he suggests, some 4,320 years ago, when, for the first time, a large nation attacked another. This was Sargon I of Akkad, which is now modern Iraq. It was also ancient Babylon, of course, which seems significant, as the harlot of Revelation is of Babylon. Other verses speak of Babylon being divided into three parts, and being thrown down by violence.
The symbolism of Babylon seems related to divisions among people. Our word, "babel" came from the story of the Tower of Babel, where the people started to speak many different languages. It could also indicate, possibly, divisions between realms or dimensions of reality, or divisions of the self. There are many indications that the future will bring a "unity." This unity may involve these same areas.
A key part of the "harlot" symbolism is related to the idea that one "pays" for the "fornication." I had a very spiritual dream that involved my very large family washing clothes. At one point in the dream, I was relieved to remember that I had a charge card with me, and I could use it to help find my family again, and return home with them. In thinking about the dream, I realized that when we use a charge card, we create a debt that must be paid later. I felt that this symbolised karma, which was a concept I had difficulty believing. But, I found similar symbolism in my other dreams and in the dreams of others. I also found that the Bible uses the metaphor of money or valuables many times, to indicate the "judgment" one can expect.
Pablo's idea about James 2:13, posited the idea that the Biblical "judgment" is basically the same idea as karma. I believe his idea is on the mark. The difference is that judgment can be viewed in terms of a single life experience, whereas karma involves a number of reincarnational lives.
I came to see karma or judgment as a learning experience, rather than a reward-punishment system. It compares, in my mind, to how we raise our children. Out of love and caring, we attempt to direct them in good behavior, otherwise they may grow to be detrimental to others and their own lives will become negatively effected. So, symbolically, the harlot is the mother of our youth in spiritual terms. After our life experiences, we continue to exist and evolve in other dimensions. It seems we are expected to be "adults" there.
The karma-judgment interpretation of the harlot fits well with the idea that the lower chakras are involved. The first chakra is related to survival instincts. The second is related to the will to procreate. The third is the will to succeed, which in its negative aspect can become a will to dominate everyone and everything and make them into a likeness of the self, or subservient to the self. The idea also fits with the Egyptian judgment concepts, as reviewed near the beginning of this article.
As I was thinking of all these things one day, a light bulb went off in my head . . . Pablo's dream! The last line of the dream was puzzling: "The housekeeper complains about her lack of money." The housekeeper could correspond to the harlot, and the money to karma. Many dreams have the symbolism of cluttered rooms, or the like. I had read an interpretation that cluttered rooms symbolise negative or conflicting ideas or beliefs in the unconscious mind. I felt that this was basically the correct interpretation, but it could have other, related meanings, such as our feelings and emotions, which, of course, are influenced by the unconscious mind. In Karl Jung's theory, water can represent emotion. I felt that this was also right, but that it can also represent spiritual influences or consciousness generally. So, the harlot seated upon the "waters" seems to suggest effects to our emotions and consciousness. The "wine" causes fury, so this is the emotional influence.
Pablo's dream seemed clearly related to the meaning of Revelation 11:11, the point where the 3 1/2 days in the lower chakras are complete, and the next step, the leap to the heart chakra takes place. The last line seems to indicate that karma will end at the end of the 3 1/2 cycle, as the "housekeeper," i.e., the harlot, will lack money, that is, we "kings of the earth" will no longer be "paying" the harlot for the "fornication."
Suddenly, I remembered that somewhere in Revelation it speaks of the beast being thrown down, or something like that. Pablo had also sent a dream of a "crock beast." Another flash of inspiration came . . . the beast of Revelation is the swallower beast in the Egyptian depiction, who's snout cuts across the balance beam pole at the 3 1/2 point! I searched for the verse, and was amazed by Revelation 17:11 -
"As for the beast that was and is not, it is an eighth but it belongs to the seven, and it goes to perdition."
Yes! The beast is the eighth symbol within the seven nodules on the pole representing the seven chakras. Revelation seems to confirm what I gathered from Pablo's dream . . . that karma will end at the end of the 3 1/2 cycle. Remember too, that the swallower beast is representative of the karmic function.
All this was starting to make perfect sense. When humanity reaches the heart level of consciousness evolution en mass, no one will be operating in the lower chakras, the area where karma has the negative, yet learning, function. Karma may still function, but it will be entirely positive at that point, bringing abundance to all. This seems to also be indicated by the verses refering to Elijah's prayer, where the earth brings forth its "fruit" after the 3 1/2 years.
Another significant verse is Revelation 6:5, 6 -
"When he opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, 'Come!' And I saw, and behold, a black horse, and its rider had a balance in his hand; and I heard what seemed to be a voice in the midst of the four living creatures saying, 'A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius, but do not harm oil and wine?'"
The "balance," I believe, is a balance scale, such as depicted by the Egyptians. Notice also, that the verses refer to money being exchanged, a hint, perhaps of the karmic or judgment function.
I remembered that a verse in Genesis speaks of the heart. I found it again . . . In Genesis 8:21 -
"And when the Lord smelled the pleasing odor, the Lord said in his heart, 'for the imagination of man's heart is evil from his youth; neither will I ever again destroy every living creature as I have done'"
This part of Genesis is just after the Ark landed, and burnt offerings were made on the altar. It seems to be speaking of the spiritual youth of mankind. Significantly, man is not called "evil" here, but rather ,the "imagination of man's heart" is called "evil."
Later, I found Proverbs 21:2 -
"Every way of a man is right in his own eyes, but the Lord weighs the heart."
Yet another example is Daniel 5:27 -
". . . TEKEL, you have been weighed in the balances and found wanting; . . . "
Putting this together with the "balance" held by the black horse rider of Revelation, it seems quite in line with the ancient Egyptian beliefs.
Black Elk's Great Vision
I read Black Elk Speaks around October, 1990. I had some dreams about it, and a number of coincidences happened. I came to see his great vision as having many similarities to the Book of Revelation. The part that seems to correlate to the heart chakra symbolism is on pages 32-33. He was only nine years old, when he fell unconscious for some two weeks. The vision was very extensive, and he never forgot any part of it. Below is an excerpt from the book. At this point in his vision, he is riding his horse in the storm clouds. There are twelve horses with riders from each of the four directions. The black horse riders are from the West, the White horse riders are from the North, the red horse riders are from the East, and the Yellow horse riders are from the South.
"Now the earth was bright again as we rode. I could see the hills and valleys and the creeks and rivers passing under. We came above a place where three streams made a big one - a source of mighty waters - and something terrible was there. Flames were rising from the waters and in the flames a blue man lived. The dust was floating all about him in the air, the grass was short and withered, the trees were wilting, two-legged and four-legged beings lay there thin and panting, and wings too weak to fly.
Then the black horse riders shouted 'Hoka hey!' and charged down upon the blue man, but were driven back. And the white troop shouted, charging, and was beaten; then the red troop and the yellow.
And when each had failed, they all cried together 'Eagle Wing Stretches, hurry!' And all the world was filled with voices of all kinds that cheered me, so I charged. I had the cup of water in one hand and in the other was the bow that turned into a spear as the bay and I swooped down, and the spear's head was sharp lightning. It stabbed the blue man's heart, and as it struck I could hear the thunder rolling and many voices that cried 'Un-hee!,' meaning I had killed. The flames died. The trees and grasses were not withered any more and murmured happily together, and every living being cried in gladness with whatever voice it had. Then the four troops of horsemen charged down and struck the dead body of the blue man, counting coup; and suddenly it was only a harmless turtle."
The Hopi Creation Myth of Spider Grandmother
I saw a depiction of the Hopi Creation myth in 1990, and read the story. It struck me that the diagram had a similarity to some crop circle formations.
The three images above compare the Hopi depiction Creation myth (top) with two crop circle formations. The lower left crop circle formation appeared in 1990. It was called, "The First Pictogram," because it was the first formation known to appear that had glyphs other than simple circles and rings. The crop formation on the lower right appeared near the end of the summer in 1990. It was called "The Alton Barns Multiple Agriglyph." Other, similar formations appeared that year, and in the years since.
I later learned of Solara's suggestion that the rectangles in some of the crop circle formations, such as "The First Pictogram," represent the "11:11 Doorway."
Much later, I realized that the Hopi depiction also fit well with the 3 1/2 symbolism. Three chambers are shown underground, connected by vertical tunnels. From the top chamber, another tunnel leads straight up to the surface of the ground. Insects are shown in the bottom chamber, animals in the middle chamber, and humans in the upper chamber. The chambers and tunnels, along with leaves at the top, resemble a large plant. A large spider with a cross on its back is depicted at several places. Near the upper chamber, various birds, a tree, and a twelve-petal sunflower are depicted inside rectangles. Seven human figures are shown climbing in the tunnel from the third chamber to the surface. A small group of humans are shown standing on the surface, with rays of light from the sun striking them. A giant rooster is also standing on the surface.
The text next to the depiction tells the Hopi creation story. The Creator placed insects in the earth and told them to figure out the meaning of life. After a time, the insects still had not found the meaning, so Spider Grandmother was sent to help. She helped them move up to the next chamber, where they became animals. Again, they could not find the meaning of life, so Spider Grandmother came again, and helped them to travel up to the third chamber, where they became human beings. After more time passed by, and the humans had not figured out the meaning of life, Spider Grandmother came again, this time assisted by birds. The people climbed up to the surface, and then Spider Grandmother taught them how to weave.
Sometime after I read the Hopi story of creation, a young lady told me about a dream of a spider, and how her friend had the very same dream on the same night. Other dreams and coincidences concerning spiders and weaving followed. After experiencing the coincidences concerning the Joseph Campbell book, I realized at some point that the Hopi myth fit well, because the key point is after the third chamber, or 3 1/2. By 1993 I realized several other things in the Hopi myth fit even better with the ideas. I will speak of those connections in their place, as I continue telling my story.
By March, 1993, I had so much material about this subject, I began an outline article. Little did I know that the biggest "coincidences" were yet to come.
July 26, 2004 Update
A great confirmation of the ideas in this series of articles came in the form of a pair of crop circle formations at Pewsey White Horse.
