The Rose Cross

#1 Postby sheryl » Wed Dec 21, 2011 9:01 am

Shalom Dear Friends!

May this day bring Light to all those lost in the darkness.

In last week's Skype Chat, Elder Gideon shared with us some wonderful images for contemplation, one of them being the Rose Cross.

In our after chat, Brother Karl asked if the cross at the center represented in some way the missing letter, or the four-pronged shin, sending us into a wonderful discussion and contemplation. The four pronged shin is said to be comprised of white brilliance upon dark radiance, instead of dark radiance upon white brilliance as the three prong shin, and all of the known alef-beit is comprised.

The cross at the center of the Rose Cross is said to likewise be comprised of White Brilliance and likewise comprised of four prongs or legs.

Are we seeing a true correspondence? And if so, could more be said to fuel our contemplations this week?

May the thoughts of our minds and words of our mouth be pleasing to you, oh YHVH.

Self-realization in the Messiah

#2 Postby Tau Malachi » Tue Dec 27, 2011 10:10 am

Greetings and blessings in the light of the Messiah!

If we gaze upon the Rose Cross and contemplate its form and symbolism, in it we will see the representation of the great palace of lights, and yet more, the mystery of the arising of all reality as the radiant display of the Divine Mind, the manifestation of the Word and Wisdom of God. The Great Cross itself, of course, represents the Macrocosm (universal), while the Holy Cross in the center represents the Microcosm (individual), specifically the Human One embodying God Consciousness, or the realization of innate union with the Divine Mind, the unification of the individual and universal.

In this state, as we witness with Adonai Yeshua, the Perfect Tzaddik, all Divine Powers, all spiritual forces, move in harmony with the enlightened man or woman, the enlightened man or woman moving in harmony with the Will of the Most High, Ratzon Elyon; hence, the image of the Golden Cross in the center of the Rose of Letters and Great Cross.

The Ruby Rose on this Golden Cross represents the companionship of the Holy Shekinah of Messiah, which rest upon a tzaddik in the Messiah, while Ruach Ha-Kodesh moves with, in and through them, and may even manifest as them, just as with the Holy Master.

Now, the four-pronged Shin represents the Holy Shekinah of the World to Come, and this self-realization we are speaking about corresponds with the Malkut of Atzilut and World to Come; but the greater manifestation of this spiritual realization in the Messiah manifests when the soul divests itself of physicality, arising in a body of pure spirit, pure light – it is manifest in full only in the World to Come, the End of Days. Thus, indeed, in this Holy Cross within the Great Cross we may speak of that Holy Shin with four prongs, symbolic of the World to Come.

O Adonai, may the Holy Light of the True Cross, the Great Seth, shine upon all beings this day, and may all be uplifted in the Great Resurrection and Ascension. Amen.

Peace be with you!
