Lipton Tea, Kundalini and the New Aeon

A recurring theme in my interests and my writings is the context surrounding the spiritual and social evolution said to be underway as we transition into a New Age or New Aeon on planet Earth. According to Western Astrology, the Mayan Calendar, and countless other cultural resources, this particular time in Earths cosmic story is a time of transition into a Golden Age of enlightenment, expressed as fractals in the social and spiritual renaissances and revolutions of the turn of the century. This age change isnt something that just happens on a particular date, but is woven throughout the History of our modern time and is directly related to our collective pasts. According to one of the most respected yet controversial occultists of history, Aleister Crowley,we are living in the early years of an age of Spiritual Enlightenment that would become the transition into the fully blossomed new age of Aquarius.

"in 1904, humanity would enter into a third aeon, the Aeon of Horus, which was controlled by the child god, symbolised by Horus. In this new aeon, Thelemites believe that humanity will enter a time of self-realization and self-actualization."
As Synchromystics like myself have noted that there are relationships between modern popular culture Stars in films and actual Stars and Constellations in the Night Sky. When we consider the history of astrology, and mythology we can see that humanity has used the cosmos as a source of documenting ongoing evolution and initiation into greater understanding of the world through things like Astrology and Mythic Drama. This blog has been a collection of Synchronicities inspired by acknowledging ongoing non-local connections between spiritual truths, mythology and historic events.

As noted in my 3 part video above - Film a Thin Skin or Membrane - different cultures seperated by history and geography beleive that as Earthly beings we also arrive from and exist in a Spiritual Reality and that we have Spiritual body, also known as the Rainbow Body, Body of Light and the Subtle Body. I find that if these aspects of not only our existential composition are true, there are often unconscious expressions of this reality, expressed in Art and Mythos. I find that understanding and acknowledging the presence of these spiritual and existential realities can serve to remedy some of the materialistic and scientific ideas that have too strongly disconnected us from our metaphysical nature.

The Sign of Cancer which we are in right now is given to the Chariot tarot Trump, which is also known as the Merkabah, or the Spiritual Body of Light. The Golden Chariot pictured here is a symbol of Soul Consciousness. The Summer Solstice is the peak time when light is upon the Earth for the longest period, before the night time hours slowly begin to return to take dominance.Cancer/The Chariot is also given the Hebrew letter Cheth, or Ch. Which is interesting because it also pops up in such words  like the Sanskrit Chit Shakti meaning the Energy of God, as well as yeChida meaning unity which all things are from. When we connect to the Life Force, also known as Kundalini, our bodies and Souls are enriched with the highest Light of consciousness.

The Chariot points toward our Subtle Body, like this new 2012 Lipton Tea commercial I saw the other day and linked below resonates with our Soul Consciousness and Summertime resonating with the Solstice at Cancer/the Chariot. We resonate with Spiritual Truth.

"A subtle body is one of a series of psycho-spiritual constituents of living beings, according to various esoteric,occult, and mystical teachings. Each subtle body corresponds to a subtle plane of existence, in a hierarchy orgreat chain of being that culminates in the physical form."

I enjoy how this Tea resonates with Ayauasca and other Spiritual entheogens  too.

"One passes through the veil of the exterior world (which, as in Yoga, but in another sense, becomes "unreal" by comparison as one passes beyond) one creates a subtle body (instrument is a better term) called the body of Light; this one develops and controls; it gains new powers as one progresses, usually by means of what is called "initiation:" finally, one carries on almost one's whole life in this Body of Light, and achieves in its own way the mastery of the Universe."
-Aleister Crowley

The Chariot/Cheth is also the symbol for H(english) and 8 in Hebrew numerology. The connection to H is interesting because Cheth can be traced etymologically to mean Fence, Gate, Enclosure, Courtyard and so on. We can see the connection here to even the Chariot, as both the Chariot and the above definitions are something like containers of a kind, even so is our body for our soul and our soul for our spirit.

Cancers 2nd Decan is the Home of the Great Bear Constellation, Ursa Major, also known as Oso Blanco to G8ors and Shamans such as Jim Sanders and Juan Flores. 

"This may be why, in Chaldean and Platonic philosophy, Cancer is called the Gate of Men, the oldest constellation and the witness of the first acts of creation. As the eighteenth of the Hebrew Paths of Wisdom, called the House of Inflowing, it was the gate through which souls descend after passing through the pillars of Gemini. It may have marked the polar entrance of the earth through which the souls poured in, and perhaps, when at her northerly extreme, it will be the exit through which they leave. The soul, having passed from the monad into the duad, now extends itself out through the vehicles of name and form in the domain of Cancer."

Cancer is also the home of the Beehive cluster.

If we follow the idea that Pooh represents the Tao, then when we break down the Characters of Winnie the Pooh, and the 5 Elements of the Pentagram, we can see how  Honey(Bees, Bears, Honey all resonate with Cancer/the Chariot). We see that the Element of Spirit/Tao is given the action to GO and that Winnie the Poohs latest Movie was released on 7/15 making 7=G and 15=O in alphabetic numerology.

See last years post from the Solstice/The Chariot timeperiod for more on whats GO-ing on with our mythic movement into illumination and enlightenment.
