myth : the serpent


"Whenever there is a strong lock used there is something precious hidden.

The thicker the Veil, the more valuable the jewel.

A hoard of treasure is guarded by a large snake; do not dwell on the hideousness of the snake, contemplate the dazzling and the priceless things you'll discover in the treasure." - Rumi


The serpent has been a symbol of long life, healing, and knowledge among almost all cultures and religions since the beginning of recorded history.

The serpent was revered by the Aztec, Chinese and Native Americans.

The single serpent staff appears on a Sumerian vase of 2000 BC representing the healing god Ningishita, model for the Greek god of healing Æsculapius.

The medical professions in America use the caduceus - a pole entwined with 2 snakes, which originally was a symbol of heralds and commerce.

Ironically, this is the staff of Mercury (Hermes) who is the god of thieves.

The traditional symbol of medicine is the staff of Æsculapius with a single serpent encircling a staff, classically a rough-hewn knotty oak tree limb.

"The serpent represents magical power, which also appears
where animal drives are aroused imperceptibly in us."
Carl Jung, Liber Novus, Page 366



In rejuvation of life the serpent sheds skin, as the moon sheds its shadow.

The Serpent sheds its skin to be reborn, as the moon its shadow to be reborn.

Life sheds one generation after another, to be reborn.

The Serpent represents immortal energy and eternal consciousness of the Creator engaged in the field of time, throwing off death and being reborn.





The serpent is a traveling alimentary canal, that's about all it is.

It gives you that primary sense of shock, of life in its most primal quality.

Sometimes the serpent is represented as a circle eating its own tail.

The serpent represents the primary function of life, mainly eating.

Life lives on Life. The essence of life is this eating of itself !

The Ouroboros, also spelled Oroborus, Uroboros or Uroborus, is an ancient symbol depicting a serpent swallowing its own tail and forming a circle.

The Ouroboros is one of the oldest mystical symbols on Earth.


ouroboros

Circle

There are two of us talking in circles

and one of us who wants to leave

in a world forged for only us

an empty cage that has no key


don't you know we're working with flesh and blood

carving out of jealousy


Crawling into each other it's smothering

every little part of me


What kind of love is this that keeps me

hanging on despite everything it's doing to me


what is this love that keeps me coming

back for more when it will only end in misery



I know too many people unhappy

in a life from which they'd prefer to flee

watching others get everything offered

they're wanton for discovery


Oh my brother my sister my mother

you're loosing your identity

can't you see that it's you in the

window shining with intensity


What kind of love is this that keeps me

hanging on despite everything it's doing to me

what is this love that keeps me coming

back for more when it will only end in misery


Sarah McLachlan

"The moon of true knowledge

- the educator of mankind -

hath been obscured."

Bahá'u'lláh



Life continues by casting off death and being reborn.

The serpent in most cultures is given a positive interpretation.

In India even the most poisonous snake, the cobra, is a sacred animal and the mythological serpent king is the next thing to the Buddha.

The serpent represents the power of life engaged in the field of time, and of death, yet eternally alive; the world is but its shadow - the falling skin.

The serpent is a very powerful friend in the American Indian traditions.

Go down to the pueblos and watch the snake dance of the Hopi, they take the snakes in their mouths make friends and then send them back to the hills.

The snakes are sent back to carry the human message to the hills, just as they have brought the message of the hills to the humans.

The interplay of man and nature is illustrated in this serpent relationship.

A serpent flows like water, but its tongue continually flashes fire.

So you have the pair of opposites together in the serpent.



Young, angry and 'untouchable': India's low-caste threat to Modi



Now at that time a priest had been killed by the bite of a snake.

When they announced the matter to The Blessed One, he said:

"Surely now, 0 priests, that priest never suffused the four royal families of the snakes with his friendliness.

For if, 0 priests, that priest had suffused the four royal families of the snakes with his friendliness, that priest, 0 priests, would not have been killed by the bite of a snake.

And what are the four royal families of the snakes?


The Virilpakkhas are a royal family of snakes;

the Erapathas are a royal family of snakes;

the Chabyaputtas are a royal family of snakes;

the Kanhagotamakas are a royal family of snakes.


Surely, now, 0 priests, that priest did not suffuse the four royal families of the snakes with his friendliness.

For surely, 0 priests, if that priest had suffused the four royal families of the snakes with his friendliness, that priest, 0 priests, would not have been killed by the bite of a snake.

I enjoin, 0 priests, that ye suffuse these four royal families of the snakes with your friendliness; sing a song of defense for your protection and safeguard.

After this manner, 0 priests, shall ye sing:"







'Creatures without feet have my compassion,

And likewise those that have two feet,

And those that have four feet I care about,

And those, too, that have many feet.


'May those without feet harm me not,

And those with two feet cause no hurt;

May those with four feet harm me not,

Nor those who possess many feet.


'Let creatures all, all things that live,

All beings of whatever category,

See nothing that will bode them ill!

May naught of evil come to them!"


"Give ear, 0 priests ! The Eternal Life has been gained !"


"I will instruct you, and teach you the Doctrine.

If you will live according to my instructions, in no long time, and in this present life, you shall learn to live for yourselves, and shall realize and live in the possession of that highest bliss to which the holy life conducts."

"Let The Blessed One teach the Doctrine.

Some having but little defilement though not hearing the Doctrine perish.

Some will be found to understand the Doctrine and they will not perish."

-from the CullaVagga, Buddhist sacred text

This web site is not a commercial web site and is presented for educational purposes only.





This website defines a new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has forged a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie - a rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."

This web site in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already controls the world central banking system, corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on coöperation. Coöperation does not occur at the point of a gun.

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior corporate media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.

All views and opinions presented on this web site are the views and opinions of individual human men and women that, through their writings, showed the capacity for intelligent, reasonable, rational, insightful and unpopular thought.
