It is believed by some the Rose Cross originated as a Christian symbol of the first century, relating to the blood of Christ and its redemptive qualities, leading to eternal life. The cross is symbolic of resurrection and rebirth. The rose symbolizes the stages of nature and spiritual attainment. The Rose and Cross was later adopted by the Rosicrucians, an esoteric secret society that originated during the Renaissance period. The rose symbolized the redemptive power of the blood of Christ; the symbol as a whole illustrated the triumph of spirit over matter. A deeper, hidden significance of the symbol is the union of the rose of Mary with the Cross of Christ, the union of Anima and Animus, or that of Man and Woman in the highest sense.
The following chapters will be dedicated to practical mysticism or the human pursuit of union with Reality. The definition of Reality in this sense can be summed up with the meaning of the Bhagavad Gita ; AS IT IS. This will be achieved by the process of the psyche that leads to Genius, or the simplification of the mind. This in itself has the ring of being irreconcilable opposites, yet patience will demonstrate through the wisdom of knowledge; genius is a simplicity the average person has abandoned in pursuit of self interest and arrogance. Finally, it will be stated Genius is something received, like the filling up of an empty vessel, not to the credit of the greatness of certain individuals. It is for all who chose humility and kindness, with the ultimate goal of uniting with the All in All.
A collection of poetry, based upon studies in ancient literature and sacred texts, such as the Tibetan Book of the Dead. Included are poems of Love, sorrow and hope. Written between 1990 and 2006, some of the poems were previously published.
THAT BLASTED TOWER contains writings, poems, letters, notes and commentaries concerning the symbolic story entitled UNIO TEN; the first section of ZENU U ATU. From this beginning other writings were added over the next decade and a half, becoming a collection of works, all related by the common theme of balance and the consequences of imbalance; both individually and collectively. This volume includes samples from these collections of writings and poems. Commentaries from different time periods are added to shine a light on some of the more obscure aspects of these writings. The true Self emerges from balancing the tilted scales; tempering spirituality and sexuality, or the eternal and the temporal. This is the human experience.
ZENU U ATU is a collection of writings compiled between 1991 to 1993. From Rosicrucian to Theological systems, based on the merging of symbols, numbers and letters, the purpose of this collection is to demonstrate balance through the union of opposites (Unio Mystica). Science and Religion, Male and Female, Light and Darkness are perceived as completions of their polarity, not in opposition. Through this union of opposites a third is established, which C.G. Jung appropriately termed as Synergy.
PSYCHON is a collection of writings, based upon studies in Mysticism, Theology and Psychology. The main theme is social justice and spiritual freedom. The highlight of this collection, THE FOUR REGIONS OF PSYCHON, presents four messages to Stephen from four Arch Angels; Raphael, Gabriel, Michael and Oriel. These messages are apocalyptic, yet ending with hope and restoration. Original artwork by Brett Fletcher.
