Gnostic: Our Mother-Father God in Heaven

Barbelo

I have hinted at this name before. And the images that are presented on the internet seem to be ‘fearsome’. The idea of a masculine female principle is contradictory until you understand androgyny. Remember The Star of Bethlehem?

Here’s a passage from Lars Muhl’s book:

‘As you can see,’ Mariam said, ‘the great mother, Anyahitha, and the women of the earth are heading for hard times. When, therefore, I give you your name you accept the obligation of passing this knowledge on to our sisters you meet on your way and who are mature enough to receive it. Only thus may the wisdom continue to live in the world. Only thus may the world survive. You must at any time be ready to go to the bottomless realm and lift the dragon from the depths. When Solomon and Sheba have united in you, you will possess the power with which you may tame the Beast. From now on you shall be known by the name Mariona Magdal. But your hidden name shall, from this day on, be BARBELO!’

Muhl, Lars. The O Manuscript (pp. 678-679). Watkins Media. Kindle Edition.

Lars is hinting at the words of Revelation 17:1-18. But, according to his thinking, this person is a symbol of the Holy Spirit, so we are back in Shekinah territory.

Is This “Proof” of Mary Magdalene Reincarnating. or What?

Helen Cohn Schucman (July 14, 1909 – February 9, 1981)

As you may know, I have read A Course in Miracles thoroughly. I have even read the only biography of Dr Schucman‘s life. And, so, I think I have a grasp of this individual.

I do not know if another being took over communication here, but deep inside me something told me that this was Helen Schucman speaking:

‘There are no missing links. Everything is certain. All that has been hidden will become obvious. And it happens NOW! Therefore, take all the exhibits and present them openly. The circumstances will never be better. The ideas of “Days of Yore” and “The End of the World” are limited states of mind just like “Birth and death” are. There are no such limitations in reality. The Primal Sea is without limits and the Primal Sea is identical with the enlightened consciousness. It is, however, not continuous. There are no other lives than the one within the One. We are all a part of this One Life and this is how it shall be for ever and ever. The enlightened consciousness is NOW in all of eternity. It is Eternal Life. Eternal Life embraces all forms of existence at all levels, including all temporary transitions that we erroneously interpret as stagnation and separation. Have no doubts. There is no room for doubt in healing. Unite with the light. Step into it without fear. Be it, give it and receive Eternal Life.’

Muhl, Lars. The O Manuscript (p. 688). Watkins Media. Kindle Edition.

I have rectified her birth time to two major events in Helen’s life: visiting Lourdes at age 12 (Uranus in Capricorn) and meeting her future husband at age 33 (Mars in Pisces).

Note the one inconjunct, only:

Moon Inconjunct Uranus

With this aspect you must learn to control sudden outbursts of emotion that occur at difficult times when you least expect it. Also your present home life may not be a stable situation in which you can grow up emotionally secure and confident. A particular incident when you were very young may have given you the feeling that you can’t count on anything or anyone for support. Later in life, you may try very hard to get away from everything that reminds you of your earliest childhood, even if your childhood has not been difficult. You just feel that you have to get away and go somewhere else.

Your relationship with your mother may be rather unstable. She may be very involved in her own interests, which prevent her from being as close to you as she would be otherwise. She may be an unconventional person, a real free spirit. The problem is that your feelings about her are mixed, both loving and unloving. You may secretly resent her. Probably you don’t feel that you can express this consciously, but it could come out when you are angry or upset. Certainly this will result in not wanting to form close relationships with other people, especially women. And the people you do choose as close friends are likely to be exciting and different from anyone you have known in the past. However, they may also be rather upsetting.

You should be encouraged to express your inner feelings and release the tensions that build up within you. In this way you will not be hurt by energies that you aren’t aware of in yourself.

Could Helen Have Been ‘Overshadowed’ by Mary Magdalene?

I have an interesting question about the Voice: could it have been Mary Magdalene, and not Jesus, that was speaking to, and through, her? I ask this because Helen seems to have had a few issues with the Voice. Instinctively, their interactions felt more like Martha and Mary fighting as sisters. Of course, this is not proof of that relationship, but it seems to fit the energy between the Voice and Helen.

And, of course, even Helen had moments of divine inspiration: while riding on public transport in New York, she suddenly was overtaken with Love for all the other occupants. It didn’t last, but she’s had a genuine glimpse of God’s bliss-filled Peace.

Code Name: Madeleine

Noor Inayat-Khan (January 1, 1914 – November 13, 1944)

circa 1943

Here is a spy of a different kind. She features in Lars Muhl’s book as a Jeanne d’Arc character in a long line of Mary Magdalene women. Here’s the passage:

‘As you wish. Sister Mariam was among the first souls. The basic identity is IO from Venus. This identity has among others been expressed as Queen Tiyi, Miriam, the Queen of Sheba, Mariam Magdal, Guinevere, Esclarmonde de Foix and Joan of Arc. It is an identity that has always had a great personality. It has been the turning point of what you understand as good and evil. As Joan of Arc it received its baptism of fire. It was, however, not until your own time that the identity as Noor Inayat Khan completed the so-called Way of Christ. However, at the same time as it lived its life as Noor Inayat Khan the Magdal idea also expressed itself as Helen Schucman, who received and wrote the message about forgiveness and freedom from Brother Yeshua.’

Muhl, Lars. The O Manuscript (pp. 686-687). Watkins Media. Kindle Edition.

Remember that image that came to Lars during a particularly difficult moment on Montsegur? That man was Noor’s father. I had wondered how he was linked.

I’m sure that the code name Madeleine was more than coincidental.

This is the time that my Kepler 7.0 program had when I brought up Noor’s name. A different chart on a website has a time of 10:15 pm Moscow time. Which one is right?

My intuition tells me that it really doesn’t matter, but my analytical mind needs to know. So I looked to see if anything would ‘feel’ right, and the position of the Moon in her chart would equate to age 30, when she was executed. She was a sister of the Moon.

Her ‘death’ time is stated as dawn on the day Noor was executed. When comparing the two charts, a two-handed Yod shows up: ‘fatal’ Uranus inconjunct ‘natal’ Sun inconjunct ‘fatal’ Pluto; and ‘natal’ Sun inconjunct ‘fatal’ Pluto inconjunct ‘natal’ Moon. Her destiny.

I’m sure the Sun/Mars/Ascendant in Scorpio in her execution chart is purposeful, too. It’s like bringing the sacrificial ‘Ram’ to the rising Sun. She wanted to make a difference.

She did.

Scared of the Sacred? Male Confusion over Sexual Intercourse

Sacred Union

It is the most difficult part of the spiritual path. Because of religious teaching in the West, we are told that sex is a bad thing, unless it exists in a marriage sanctified by the church. And even then, it is only meant to propagate the species. But the sexual urge to unite with another is much too strong to be reined in by a few ‘commandments’.

For centuries, if not millennia, men have tried to control this impulse, to lessen its effect on them: enacting prostitution laws; forbidding women from associating until the light of the full Moon; making women be obedient to their husbands. You name it and the reason is always fear: fear of the power that women have to bring life into this world.

Roma or Amor?

Reading through the Grail portion of The O Manuscript, I have come to the conclusion that the ONLY way to find the Grail (and absorb its meaning into our being) is through sex. In today’s world that seems more than a little shocking.

Temple prostitutes were encouraged by the legal authorities in Rome. Why? Because it stopped men from wandering too far from their emotional and legal obligations.

But, on an esoteric level, this ‘temple worship’ had a beneficial effect on society, And, for those who were on a spiritual path, this was a ‘special’ way to open yourself up to spiritual energy. (I’ve written about this before.) Orgasm is called ‘la petite mort’.

Who perverted this sacred rite?

Is This Why We Are Going Through a Pandemic?

XVI: The Tower

Lars Muhl’s latest chapter (8) in the book that I’m reading (The O Manuscript) is in section II of the third part. The section is entitled Shekinah. Ooh, we’ve been here before, haven’t we? Just to see what its hidden meaning might be, I checked the value of the Hebrew letters: they total 385. When added together, the number is 16, reduced to 7.

I then thought of the Tarot card, The Tower.

The Collapse of Personality

“From a spiritual point of view, the Fall represents the end of harmony and the beginning of division, opposition, and inner and outer aggression. This is expressed by the two people falling on different sides of the Tower. These two people should also be interpreted as one person who is ‘torn in two’ when his or her moral reference points are lost. The Tower’s windows suggested this in the first version of the card. In our case, the top two windows are like two eyes, blinded by the same flaming passion that led to the fall. The ‘tongues of light’ that fall down alongside the two people represent shreds of personality that the lightning, symbol of uncontrollable psychic energy, has helped disintegrate.

“Summing up then, the Tower tells us of the tragedy of a person or group of people driven by the desire to possess superior knowledge or transcend the limits set by Nature or Law. The result? A situation of privilege or condition of supremacy is lost.”
