About the Triple Goddess

Tuesday, October 14th, 2008

lilith_michelangeThe Ancient Greek in the person of the famous philosopher Aristotle viewed Women as Imperfect Men. Women were inferior in Strength and the Powers of the Mind. Last but not least women were Without Soul.

Therefore Women had to submit to the Rule of the Male Sex. The views of Aristotle became the basis of Western Science and were codified in the teachings of the Catholic Church.

To stop the destructive effect of female dominance the old myths were rewritten. The Positive qualities of Female Deities were simply transformed into a Negative quality.

The Female Goddess became a wicked, old female, a Witch or a Whore. She became a stealer of children and a seductress of men. She was so frightful that humans turned into Stone when they saw here.

The Wicked Witch and the Whore has many names. Examples are Lilith, Istahar, Isis, Hekate, Astarte, Medusa, Morgan Le Fay and of course the White Virgin Mary and Mary Magdelena, the Black Madonna also known as Isis or Ishtar (the Planet Venus).

One of the Oldest Version of the Destructive Wicked Whore is Lilith. Lilith first appears around 3000 B.C.E. as a class of spirits, the Lilitu or the Ardat Lili. The lilitu are associated with the owl, the eagle, the lion, water, violent sand storms (the South Wind), disease and the destructive powers of nature. The Ardat Lili, winged night spirits, female vampires, seduce men at night and steal their sperm to create demonic children.

enlil_ninlilThe destructive South Wind was known as Ninlil (Nin Lil = Lady Wind) she was the wife of Enlil (En Lil= Lord Wind). Enlil is the sun of An(u) and Ki and holds possession of the Tablets of Destiny which gives him the power over the entire cosmos and the affairs of man.

He is sometimes friendly towards mankind, but can also be a stern and even cruel god who punishes man and sends forth disasters, such as the great Flood which wiped out humanity with the exception of Atrahasis (Noah). Enlil is portrayed wearing a Crown with Horns (the Devil), symbol of his power. When Enlil rapes Ninlil he has to leave Heaven and is send by Anu to the Underworld (Earth). Ninlil follows him to take revenge.

Enlil and Ninlil are the Babylonian origin of Adam and Eve and their banishment out of Heaven is comparative to Adam and Eve’s banishment from the Garden of Eden.

Eve is very different from Lilith. Lilith is a magically beautiful woman. She shares paradise with Adam. She is a female made by God in a manner similar to how the Lord made the first male.

After leaving both the first male and paradise she is replaced by a less independent and less equal Eve, a woman not made from the Earth but from a rib of the man Adam. Lilith is mentioned in the Death Sea Rolls, the Zohar and the Talmud.

If we look at the “original” story of Adam and Eve we can see that Eve (Lilith) had a good reason to leave the “first male”, Enlil. He raped her. Later we will see that Enlil (with different names) is playing the same game all the time.

Ishtar is the goddess of fertility, love, war and the planet Venus. Ishtar is like Lilith (and Isis) associated with sexuality and sexual mystic rituals (Invoking the Kundalini).The Kundalini (“The Serpent Power”) is a spiral pattern in the body. It connects the main energy-points (chakra’s).

When the energy points are connected to Mother Earth (Gaya, Sophia), spiritual awakening starts. The Kundalini is normally symbolized as a serpent coiled into three and a half circles, with its tail in its mouth, and spiraling around the central axis at the base of the spine.

In the Gnostic version of the Fall from Paradise, there is no sin on the part of our ancestral parents. The Serpent in Eden is Kundalini, a sublime ally to humanity, not a tempter.

Kundalini2In these texts, the Serpent Power is called “the instructor.” Eve (Lilith), the ancestral representative of the human species, acquires from the Serpent all the secret knowledge of the Mysteries.

One of the most famous myths about Ishtar describes her descent to the underworld. After Ishtar descends to the underworld, all sexual activity ceases on earth. She is begged to come back. She can only return from the underworld if she sends someone back in her place.

Each time when she runs into someone, she finds him to be a friend and lets him go free. When she finally reaches her home, she finds her husband (Enlil, Adam) seated on his throne, not mourning her at all. In anger, Ishtar has the demons take her husband back to the underworld as her replacement. When this happens sexual activity starts again.

You have to understand that Enlil lived in Heaven (or Paradise) and the Underworld is the next level below Paradise. This level is called Earth. So Ishtar (Lilith) sends her “husband”, The Devil, back to Earth.

The little stories in this blog are part of a much bigger story called the Gilgamesh Epos. This story is used by many comtemporary scientists to prove that Earth was visited by members of an old Civilization (The Anunaki, The Archons, The Serpents) that was situated in the Constellation Sirius.

The Annunaki engineered the Humans (called the Lu-lu) to work for them. They also interbred with their own creation (Demi-Gods). If this story is true Paradise could be Sirius.

medusaMedusa means “sovereign female wisdom,” in Sanskrit Medha, Greek Metis, Egyptian Met or Ma’at . In Egypt she was the Goddess of Justice. Medusa/Ma’at destroys and purifies in order to recreate Balance.

In ancient history Medusa was symbolized by a female figure positioned in holy postures with the presence of animals, primarily birds and snakes whom she is intimately connected with. Medusas symbol of female wisdom is her ceremonial mask.

It has wide unblinking eyes that reflect her immense wisdom. The mask was used to guard and protect women and the secret knowledge of the Divine Feminine. It was erected in stone, corresponding to her look of stone, on caves and gateways at sacred sites dedicated to the Goddess.

The myths about the Female Goddesses are a very complicated mix of deliberated distortion by the “female haters” (Anunnaki, Archons), historical accounts, hermetic (secret, encryped) knowledge and fantasy. One thing is for sure, everybody wanted to hide the Power of and the Knowlegde about the Feminine Energy, the Kundalini.

If we look more closely we are able to detect Four Perspectives on the Female Goddess. Three of them are related to the Female Stages of Life, Maiden, Mother, and Crone (Grandmother). These stages are United in one Concept, the Triple Goddess, the Female Trinity.

trinityThe Triple Goddess, the Unity of the three stages of the Female is the Dark Goddess called Medusa or Kali. She is associated with Total Chaos and Rebirth, the Unconsciousness, Horror, Terror, Evil, the Dark Moon, Winter, Night, Darkness and Death itself. She is the Regent of the Underworld, seen in those times as a place where souls went to rest between incarnations, before coming back to the earthly plane.

The Ancient Underworld is now called Heaven. The Regent of the Underworld and Heaven is the Triple Goddess Itself, The Whole, the Creator, The One, The Goddess who has no Name, the Unknown. The three parts of the Triple Goddess Unite in Her. She is Three and One which makes Four.

The Maiden (The Fool, Seductress, Spring, Birth, Waxing Moon) represents enchantment, innocence, lack of worries, the joy of living, inception, youth, discovery and excitement.

The Mother (Warrior, The High Priestess, Dove, Dolphin, Summer, Life, Full Moon) represents ripeness, fertility, fulfilment, stability, and power.

The Grandmother (Autumn, Death (Old Age), Fate, Waning moon) represents wisdom, repose, and compassion.

The Concept of the Triple Goddess is probably of Celtic Origin. The Celts believed that all important things come in three phases. The Triple Goddess is represented by the triple spiral or triskele.

This symbol is found in the Newgrange site from the Bronze Age (3300 BC) in Ireland. The Triple Spiral has a lot in common with the triple spiral of the “Serpent Power”. With this Power the “Feminine Energy” (The Kundalini) is awakened.

danuThe Triple Goddess in Celtic Mythology is represented by the Morrigan (Death), Cerridwen (Grandmother), Dana/Danu/Anu (Mother) and Brigid (Maiden).

The Morrigan (“Great Queen”, “Phantom Queen,”) appears as a beautiful woman, a crow, a raven or a wolf. She is associated with fate, war, strife and death. In one of the many stories Morrigan appears to the hero Cu Chulainn and offers him her love.

When he fails to recognize her and rejects her, she tells him that she will hinder him when he is in battle. When Cu Chulainn is eventually killed, she transforms in a crow and sits on his shoulder. The Morrigan in the person of Morgan Le Fay plays an important role in the Legends of King Arthur.

magic chaldrounCerridwen is the keeper of the Magic Cauldron. She is the mother of very ugly son, Afagdu. To give her sun the ultimate insight she uses a magical formula, known as the “greal”.

For a year and a day, she keeps six herbs simmering in her magical cauldron, known as “Amen”, under the constant care of a boy named Gwion. One day a few drops of the bubbling liquid spatter on his hand.

Unthinkingly Gwion, sucks his burned hand, and, suddenly, he is able to hear everything in the world, and understands all the secrets of the past and future. He runs away, but Cerridwen pursues him.

After a long chase she eats him and, nine months later, gives birth to an infant son, whom she, in disgust, throws into the water of a rushing stream. He is rescued by a Prince, and becomes the great Celtic bard, Taliesin.

This is a special version of a very old story where a Child is Born without the intervention of a Male. The origins of this story go back to the time of Zoroaster and the Magi.

The Magi are called the Druids in the Celtic Mythology. The Magic Caudron is the symbol of Life (something is Cooking) and the Magical Formula is of course the Grale. The Grale stands for the Heart. If You live out of the Heart a New Child (“The Inner Child”) will be born. This Inner Child is highly creative (a Bard) which relates it to the Holy Spirit also the symbol of (Divine) Creativity. When the Inner Child is born you will understand the secrets of past and future. You will be able to read the Tablets of Destiny of Enlil.

The Mother Goddess is represented by Danu, Don or Anu. The Name Dana means Wisdom or Teacher. She is the mother of the Tuatha De Danann, the Faery-People. Anu was the Father of Isthar.

The original territory of the Celts is close to the sources of the Danube. The Greeks referred to Danube as Ister. The link between the river Danube and Celtic culture is particularly intimate and the sacredness of rivers and lakes as an expression of the sacredness of life and death was built into the whole structure of Celtic culture.

bridgetThe Maiden Goddess is named Brigid but has many other names like Bloudewedd, Blodewedd, Blodwin, and Blancheflor. Her name means flowerface or White Lily. The White Lily represents the Innocent White Soul. In the old story of Blancheflor and Flor, Flor, the Red Rose, symbolises  the Red Impulse of the Passions of the Ego to become Self-conscious.

Besides a Female Trinity Celtic Mythology also contains a Male Trinity (the Dagda (“The Good God”, Lugh (“Light”) and Herne (the handsome and playful young Satyr)).

It is now possible to map the much older Female Trinity back unto the Christian Male Trinity. If we do this it is easy to see that the Holy Spirit is the Feminine Energy, the Force of Creativity, Inspiration and Joy, the Maiden. The Father must be the Grandfather (“The Good God“). He (or She) restores the Balance and creates Harmony. This leaves us with the Sun as the Father (“The Light“).

The Druids believed in three worlds and in transmigration from one to the other: in a world above this one, in which happiness predominated; a world below, of misery; and this present state in which good and evil are so exactly balanced that man has the utmost freedom and is able to choose or reject either.

In This World we have to Unite into the Soul the Properties of All Beings, to Acquire a Knowledge of All Things, to get the Power to Conquer all Evil and to Face the Face behind the Mask of Death. To accomplish this we need the Open Mind of the Maiden, the Power of the Mother and the Wisdom of the Grandmother. In every step we take on Our Path from Birth to Death we will acquire more Light to See what is Wrong and what is Right until we Accept the Love of The Great Mother who is Three and One.

I end this blog with a poem of the Sufi mystic Ibn Arabi (1165-1240) about the Triple Goddess:

I follow the religion of Love,

Now I am sometimes called

A Shepherd of gazelles

And now a Christian monk,

And now a Persian sage.

My beloved is three-

Three yet only one;

Many things appear as three,

Which are no more than one.

Give Her no name,

As if to limit one

At sight of Whom

All limitation is confounded.

About The Stone of Destiny

Wednesday, September 24th, 2008

tara stone of destinyThe Coronation Stone is one of the most important relics of the British Empire. According to legend, the Stone was transported from the Holy Land to Ireland, taken to Scotland and in 1296 captured by King Edward I of England. From that time the Stone stayed in Westminster Abbey in London until November 15, 1996. At that time the Stone was brought back to Edinburgh Castle in Scotland.

The Coronation Stone has many names. It is called ‘the Royal seat of Marble’, ‘the Pharaoh’s Stone’, ‘the Stone of Celebrated Memory’, ‘the Stone of Scotland’, ‘the Regal Stone’, ‘the Stone of Scone’, ‘Jacob’s Pillow’ and the name by which it was known in Gaelic – the ‘Lia Fail’ – translated as the ‘Stone of Destiny’.

On Christmas Day, 1950, four Scottish students heisted the Stone from under the Coronation Throne in Westminster Abbey, dumped it in the trunk of their car, and drove off with it. About four months later the rock was recovered but many people believe this stone is a copy of the original stone. If this is true the coronation of Elizabeth II in 1952 was an illegal coronation.

An eyewitness description of the ‘Stone of Destiny’ was made by an Englishman, Walter de Hemingford, who attended the coronation of John Baliol in 1292 A.D. He depicted it as “Concavus quidem ad modum rotundae cathedrae confectus“, i.e. “hollowed and made in the form of a round chair“.

The 14th century English ‘Chronicles of Melsa’ also describe the Stone of Scone as being “hollowed out, and partly fashioned in the form of a round chair”. The coronation stone in Edinburgh Castle does not fit this description.

What was the original meaning of the Stone of Destiny?

The name ‘The Stone of Destiny’ is an English translation of the Gaelic words ‘Lia‘, a great stone, and ‘Fail‘, meaning fatal; hence ‘fate‘. However, the ‘Lia Fail’ was originally known to the Irish as the ‘Lia Faileas“. Faileas doesn’t mean fate at all, but rather spectral, or spiritual shadow.

The Spiritual Shadow is a major theme in many old religions. The Egyptians believed that a human being consisted of five separate parts or elements. Those were the body itself (“ha’), the personality of the person (‘ba’), the life force of the person (‘ka’), the name of the person (‘ren’), and, most significantly from our point of view, the shadow of the person.

The shadow of the body was considered an important and integral part of an individual and its name, according to Egyptologists, was the ‘shut’. The Egyptian aim was to keep the shadow alive after death to make it possible to travel space/time. The Lia Faileas was an instrument to travel time/space or in current terminology, a portal.

What is the Lia Faileas?

Tuata de DahaanIrish legends inform us that the Lia Faileas was one of the four great treasures given to the Celts by the De Danaan, a mythical god-like people of early Ireland; the other three treasures being an invincible sword (the Sword of Nuada), a fiery spear red with blood (the Spear of Destiny) and a cauldron of plenty (The Cauldron of Dagda) from the fabled cities of Gorias, Finias and Murias respectively.

The Lia Faileas, exclusively for use in the coronation of kings, was gifted from the city of Faileas, which means ‘the Place of Shadow’.

The Tuatha de Danaan also called The Danu came from the “Land of Youth”, called Tír na nÓg in Irish Gaelic. Tír na nÓg was situated in some distant land, possibly an island or group of islands. Tír na nÓg may have something to do with Mu.

What is Jacob’s Pillar?

jacobs-pillow2The Story of Jacob’s Pillar starts in Genesis.

Genesis 28:11 “And he (Jacob) lighted upon a certain place, and tarried there all night, because the sun was set; and he took of the stones of that place, and put [them for] his pillows, and lay down in that place to sleep.

He dreamed, and behold a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven: and behold the angels of God ascending and descending on it And, behold, the “I AM” stood above it, and said, I [am] the “I AM” God of Abraham thy father, and the God of Isaac: the land whereon thou liest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed; And thy seed (Jacob’s) shall be as “the dust of the earth”, and thou shalt spread abroad to the West, and to the East, and to the North, and to the South: and in thee and in thy seed shall all the families of the earth be blessed. And, behold, I [am] with thee, and will keep thee in all [places] where thou goest, and will bring thee again into this land; for I will not leave thee, until I have done [that] which I have spoken to thee of.

And Jacob awaked out of his sleep, and he said, Surely the “I AM” is in this place; and I knew [it] not. And he was afraid, and said, How dreadful [is] this place! this [is] none other but the house of God, and this [is] the gate of heaven.

And Jacob rose up early in the morning, and took the Stone that he had put [for] his pillows, and set it up [for] a pillar, and poured oil upon the top of it. And he called the name of that place Bethel (House of God): but the name of that city [was called] Luz at the first.

And Jacob vowed a vow, saying, If God will be with me, and will keep me in this way that I go, and will give me bread to eat, and clothing to put on, So that I come again to my father’s house in peace; then shall the “I AM” be my God: And this Stone, which I have set [for] a pillar, shall be God’s house (Bethel): and of all that Thou shalt give me I will surely give the tenth unto Thee“.

Jacob takes the Stone with him to Egypt and passes the Stone to Joseph (Gen 49:24). The Stone is (Num 14:33) taken over by Moses when the Exodus takes place and brought to Canaan (1413 BC). It is moved to Shechem. Many Kings are crowned at the Stone (Abimelech, Rehoboham, Joash). Later the Stone is brought to Jerusalem.

Upon the fall of Jerusalem to the Babylonians under Nebuchadnezzar, (2 Maccabees 2: 4-8) Jeremiah takes the Ark, the Tabernacle and the Stone and hides them in a cave on Mount Nebo. Later he flees with the royal princesses to Egypt and finally to Ireland.

The ancient Irish records record the coming of “the Great Prophet,” “Brugh” his scribe (Baruch), and the daughter of a “Egyptian” king (Tea Tepi), about 583 B.C.

The Princess marries the Zarahite King, Eochaidh II. The Stone is kept at the capital city of Tara for some three centuries, and all the kings, descendants of Eochaidh and Tea Tephi, are crowned on it.

About 350 B.C., it was sent to Scotland for the coronation of Fergus, King of Scots, who was a descendant of the Milesian kings of Ireland. It remained in Scotland, and all Scottish kings were crowned on it, until 1297 A.D. when King Edward I of England invaded Scotland and captured the Stone and placed it in Westminster Abbey.

The Story of Jacob’s Pillow has a huge impact. If it is true the royal bloodline of Abraham and the major relics of his tribe (The Stone, the Ark, the Tabernacle) are taken to Ireland (Tara) and later moved to other places (perhaps Scotland (Scotia, Scone), England). The Stone of Destiny that is now placed in Edinburgh Castle is certainly not Jacob’s Pillar and certainly not Lia Faileas. The last one may be buried in Tara. It is not sure that Jacob’s Pillar is the same stone as the Lia Faileas. The Lia Faileas seems to be a lot older.

Let’s continue with the investigation.

The history of Ireland starts with a tribe known as the Picti (Painted People). They brought iron forging skills to Scotland and the north-east of Ireland in the seventh century BCE. The Picti were followed by Celtic Tribes from Belgium, France and Spain. The mythical Milesians are commonly accepted as the historical Celtic Gaels and therewith the ancestors of all the Irish.

Who are the Milesians?

milesiansThe legend of the Milesians begins in the Holy Land at the time of the Tower of Babel. One man, Fenius or Feinas, sent scholars over the world to learn all the languages. He handpicked the best language and named it Goidelic, the precursor of Gaelic. The next step was to assign land to the Goidelic speaking tribe. Years passed and Fenius’ son, Neil or Niul, got married with Scota, the daughter of the pharaoh.

There is some evidence that Scota is the daughter of Pharaoh Akhenaten named Meritaten. The name scota was original written as sceadu which has a lot in common with the Egyptian word shut, the Shadow. Scota is not the name of the Princess but the name of the attribute, the “stone of destiny” or the “portal”.

Scota gave birth to a boy named Gaedhael or Gadheal Glas. One day Gaedhael was bitten by a snake and he went to Moses for relief. Moses prayed to God and touched the bite with his staff. Miraculously the bite healed and Moses gave Gaedhael his staff stating God commands and I command that this boy’s descendants will live in a land free from snakes.

Moses was the principal advisor of Pharaoh Akhenaten. There is lot of evidence that the religion that was created by Moses is the same religion Akhenaten wanted to create in Egypt.

Generations passed until Sru, a successor of Gaedhael, and his tribe was forced to leave Egypt. Their first stop was Crete, like Ireland an island without snakes. They tried to settle on Crete, but after five generations of war they moved on and went to the Iberian Peninsula, nowadays Spain and Portugal.

Breogán, a descendant of Gaedhael, decided to build a tower on the northern coast of the peninsula. One day his son, Ith, climbed the tower and spotted a strip of land on the horizon. They decided to move to this place by boat. One the major inhabitants of the fleet was an Egyptian Princess also named Scota.

There is much evidence that the Tower was built in Gibraltar. This fits with the idea that the origins of the Irish are the Celtic Gaels who came from Spain. The “second” Scota is the same person who was named Tea Tepi in the story of Jacob’s Pillar. There is very strong evidence that “Egyptians” lived in Tara.

When the fleet arrived at what they called Innis Fail, translated as Island of Promise or Island of Destiny, they ran into the Thuata de Danaan. After many battles an agreement was reached.

The Milesians were allowed to occupy Éire and they allowed the Tuatha de Danaan to live underground in Sidh or Sidhe, invisible places of Tír na nÓg, Land of the Young, to bring their magical powers to perfection and to serve the ordinary mortal people. From that moment on the Milesians and consequently the Irish in the mortal world are honoring the immortal half-gods and fairy-folks of Tír na nÓg.

If the legend of The Milesians is true the Milesians, the Irish, are the descendants of the lost tribes of Israel, the House of Joseph. The Irish are the chosen people who have to fulfil the old prophesies in the Bible. Some people in Ireland believe this is the case. Many other ethnic groups in the World claim the same.

It is very clear that many old legends are mixed up. To find the “truth” we have to have a look at where the original legends came from.

Where do the Milesians come from?

ScythiansAccording to legend the Milesians originated in Scytia. The “Scytians” are Iranian-speaking peoples who ranged across the Eurasian steppes during the first millennium B.C.E. They were celebrated for their hoards of exquisitely carved golden art in the animal style, their superb horsemanship, their elaborate armor and excellent metal weaponry, their skill as archers, their bravery and strength, and their nomadism. They lived all across Central Asia to the borders of China. The Scyths were known by many names such as the Sarmatians and the Alans (From Iran, Aryan).

From archeological, artistic, historical, and linguistic evidence, we know that these northern Iranian peoples had a European appearance and that they were often blond-haired and blue-eyed.

The Sarmatians and the Alans wandered to Europe and came into contact, and eventually in conflict, with the Romans. In 175 AC they were defeated by the forces of Marcus Aurelius after which 5,500 of them were sent to Britain to defend the Hadrian’s Wall. The overwhelming majority of them never returned to their homeland. They are probably the originators of many Iranian Stories and Legends.

There is much more evidence that shows that a major part of the Irish Myths are really Iranian Myths that were taken to Ireland by the Sarmatians and the Alans. These myths include the Magical Caudron, The Magical Swords and The Sword in the Stone (Arthur & Mozes).

Who are the Druids?

merlinThe Sarmatians and Alans were assisted by Magicians, the Druids. The Druids were first recorded in the Aristotelian work “Magicus” (200 B.C.) in which they are termed “druidae”. The origin of the word is unknown but it could mean “Immersed in knowledge” (dru-wid). The term “Magi” or ‘Magoi’, means ‘bearers of the gift’.

At this moment we would call these special gifts para-normal abilities. Druids or Magi (The Iranian term), were able to Travel Time/Space, Explain Dreams, Foretell the Future, Heal the Sick, Communicate with the Dead and Read the Soul.

The Tools of the Magi are well known. They used a Sword (to Paint a Circle of Protection), a Wand (representing Growth), wore a special Cap (The Phrygian Cap), used a Caldron (representing the Heart), Incantations and a Mirror (the symbol of Wisdom, Reflection). The magical tools are still visible in the Symbols of the Playing Cards (Swords, Cups (Caldron), Wands. Pentacle (The Ring of Protection)).

The magi served in the courts of the Chinese Emperor, and studied alongside the priests, priestesses and philosophers of Greece (Pythagoras, Plato), Rome, India and Egypt. They influenced the Templar Knights and were the cause of the Age of Chivalry (Amor) and ultimately the production of the Grail legends.

The origin of the Iranian Magi (or the Chaldees, servants of God) can be traced back to the Old Testament. The Magi are the descendants of Arpachsad, son of Shem, son of Noah, the Archfather of Abraham.

What is the knowlegde of Druids?

The knowledge of the Magi was taken over by the Essenes. When they were converted to Christianity they became Manichaeans. In the Islamic religion they became the Sufists and later in France they came back as the Cathars. When they were Jewish they were called Kabbalists. Wherever they went to escape the violence of their many persecutors the magian Christians were progressively exterminated.

What is the Stone of Destiny?

Esoteric or Hermetic texts contain many Levels. The Universe consists of many Levels. Every time when a Level is mastered a new Level shows itself.

The Stone of Destiny is an object of the Material Level. The Druids and Magi knew that this level was totally unimportant. The “real” Universe was covered by a veil and this veil only showed the Material Part.

The Magic Caldron or the Grail was a symbol of the Heart and the Wand was a symbol of the Tree of Knowledge. They did not need tools to look behind the Veil. They used their special Gift.

They knew that the Shadow was the complement of their Male or Female part. The Shadow has to be mastered to find Total Integration. This is also the aim of the practice of Alchemy (The Rubedo, Reddening). The integration of the Shadow also happened to Jacob when he wrestled with the Angel (Elokim, The Unknown, the Unconsciousness) who dislocated his hip and gave him the name Israel, the Integration of Esau and Jacob (The Good and the Bad).

The Stone is the symbol of the Foundation (Yesod), the Sexual Energy also called the Kundalini, that has to be transformed into Spiritual Energy (The Astral Light, Chi or Prana). The White Astral Light (The Rainbow) is the Energy that is given by Al-What-Is, the I AM WHAT I AM, to the Magus/Druid to Heal, Hear, Know and See when they have realized the final Connection to the One.

I hope you understand where the Thuata De Danaan (Danan, Danu, Anu (Heaven)) came from. They are the Spirits that live in the OtherWorld, the World of Shadows, The Promised Land, Heaven, The Garden of Eden, MU. They are the Gardians of Nature and are still protecting Mother Earth.
