The Birth of Monotheism,
Leaving the Land of Bondage

Osiris under Ra rises as the Djed PillarRa-Heru-Khuti was the name of the Horus of Two Horizons, and it was the god worshiped above all others by the Atenists. They believed they lived in the disc of the galaxy. Unfortunately, that concept has been lost over the centuries. Today we live in a universe which began with a Big Bang and will end in a Big Crunch. The duration of this open cycle is not known, but it is firmly believed by the priests of modern science, that an intelligent life force does not control the substance of this creation. Have we advanced as Sons of God, or have we become like fallen angels and Daughters of Men?

Ra in Heaven and Osiris at the Djed PillarEgypt recognized four great pillars in their cosmos from the beginning. They symbolized these four pillars with the Djed pillar of Osiris utilizing four discs around one axis to represent the primordial Oneness of all creation. Comprehension of the four part pillar opened the doors to all rooms in all the houses of creation. The first, and greatest pillar, was the axis of the galaxy. This is the place where stars are born and die. As such, it is the central axis of spiritual existence for mortals living within this collection of burning balls of gas. The second disc axis, represented the axis of the star which provided life and light to the mortals. This axis represents the ecliptic pole, and since the dominant characteristic was light of day, it symbolized rational being. The third pillar represents the polar axis of the planet Earth. This is clearly the axis of the "lower world" of material existence. Upon the Earth there are places which represent individual axes of mortals. The number of personal axes is comparable to the number of stars in the heavens. Akhetaten was located at the personal axis of the Pharaoh of Egypt in anticipation of the moment of the First Occasion which was still to come when it was established. It was still to come, because Osiris, who personified truthful experience, was going to begin to rise from the dead on that occasion and reveal the cosmic truths which had been hidden in the tombs of Egypt.

In the vignettes provided here we see Ra-Heru-Khuti in the "upper world" with a staircase of stars connecting to the mummy of Osiris. A clear implication that the dead can be raised through cosmic consciousness. Flanked by the worshiping Isis and Nephthys, Osiris holds the flail and the crook. These goddesses of physical and material intuition signify that the power behind experience is physical and material sensuality. Mastery of physical and rational truths is signified by the flail and the crook. Seven steps on the ladder of the Djed pillar, and seven worshiping baboons at Ra-Heru-Khuti signify the whole of existence as seven constituent parts known as the seven spirits of God; substance, emotion, rationality, spirituality, consciousness, cognition, and recognition. All of this is under the dome of heaven, and waiting the discovery by mortals so that they can return to their divine source and become one, as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be.

The vignettes that Egypt provided throughout its history were all aimed at revelation of cosmic truths until the end of the 18th Dynasty. Near the end of the reign of Amenophis III, and throughout the Armana Period from Akhenaten to Tutankhamen, Egyptian art changed substantially. Egyptologists and art aficionados declared that Egypt had broken from the rigid art of the prior dynasties. Since Egyptologists and art aficionados have never truly understood the art of Ancient Egypt, a loss of rigidity may be simply a loss of meaning. This is precisely the essence of the Armana Art. It meets a desire for emotional expression, but is practically void of cosmic meaning. Atenist priests essentially outlawed all graven images of any of the gods of Egypt. If those so called gods, were in fact messages from the recorded wisdom of ancestors, then Atenist art had the objective of destroying the very fabric of Egyptian history, consciously and subconsciously. This is the majority view of the effect of the Armana art. It eventually evolved into the fabulously dynamic art and emotional prose of Greece, but it became totally incapable of carrying cosmic or ancient wisdom into the next generation. Greece and Israel began a phase of detached metaphors to carry the ancient wisdom. Greece utilized the multiplicity of their Pantheon of gods to carry wisdom. Israel used the multiplicity of their prophets and kings to carry wisdom. These systems became emotionally dynamic, but they failed to carry the ultimate cosmic messages in common sense format. They were totally esoteric. Greece conveyed the sensual emotions, while Israel transmitted the rational emotions. Although it is not common to express rationality as an emotion, it needs to be understood that all reasons come from some recorded emotion. Whatever has been written by Thoth was first feeling in Maat. Expression of an historical and rational fact does not eliminate the emotional source, it hides it in esotericism for subsequent revelation as a reborn emotion. What happens in the interim is the suppression of feelings and intuition in the form of denial. After Israel and Greece lost control of the World to Babylon and Rome, the West was in a state of expedient amnesia. This is not a known technical term, but it expresses the effect on the consciousness when the struggle to survive causes us to deny that we caused ourselves to be in a state of ego defense. To overcome the regressed state of consciousness, we have to reconstruct the acts which caused us to fall from grace, or we enter into the lower world of unconscious emotional obeisance. Western Civilization had entered into a state of bondage, precisely as it declared itself to have left the "land of bondage." This being the collective rational state of the Western psyche, it became impossible to achieve the elimination of this emotional bondage by returning to the "land of bondage."

Eventually, the Greeks and the Israelites joined forces with the Egyptians to define the state of bondage of Western Civilization, and to overcome the Roman/Babylonian/Persian tyranny. The result of this effort was the syncretic religion known as Christianity. However, Christianity could not go against the stars. Christianity had to establish how to overcome the bondage of rational living while at the same time to allow individual freedom without the incessant anarchy of the intervening years between the 18th Dynasty and Caesar Augustus. The result was the image of a bound man on a cross that was in essence the ministry which he preached. In other words, "walk the talk." This specifically defined the state of Western culture. It is a rational emotion and an emotional reason, that has cosmic perspective bound into the physical being as clearly expressed in Luke 22:39-44;

Golgatha, where the living God was crucified.And he came out, and went, as he was wont, to the mount of Olives; and his disciples also followed him. And when he was at the place, he said unto them, Pray that ye enter not into temptation. And he was withdrawn from them about a stone's cast, and kneeled down, and prayed, Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done. And there appeared an angel unto him from heaven, strengthening him. And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly: and his sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground. These drops of blood were shed at the dawn of the Age of Pisces when the vernal equinox passed the first line of Pisces in 30 AD. This was the moment that described the death of Jesus, Osiris, and Lazarus. It was the moment when Jonah jumped ship on his voyage to Nineveh. It was cosmically synchronized to kill the Passover and begin a new age, just as the sojourn into Egypt and the Exodus had done at the end of the Age of Taurus.

The epic death of the Piscine hero at the beginning of the Age left a message of great importance regarding the spiritual moment of the occurrence in Matthew 27:31-35; And after that they had mocked him, they took the robe off from him, and put his own raiment on him, and led him away to crucify him. And as they came out, they found a man of Cyrene, Simon by name: him they compelled to bear his cross. And when they were come unto a place called Golgotha, that is to say, a place of a skull, they gave him vinegar to drink mingled with gall: and when he had tasted thereof, he would not drink. And they crucified him, and parted his garments, casting lots: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, They parted my garments among them, and upon my vesture did they cast lots.

Simon is the constellation of Perseus, who carries a cross that marks the place of the skull of the Medusa. Jesus had an androgenous image which had the power to beguile any that would look upon it. Thus the man in Andromeda became bound to the rock as he lay on his face in anticipation of the suffering which inevitably comes in life. Overcoming that suffering is the purpose of the story of death and resurrection which is the story of Pisces. Jesus was called the "King of the Jews" because he had the attitude of salvation which had inflicted the Israelites at the wilderness of Zin, when Moses smote the same rock, and tasted its vinegar laden water. Israelites, and Zionists in general, do not suffer death and resurrection in their scriptures. Isaac was spared by Abraham. Jonah is released from the whale's mouth. Joseph is thrown in a well as Orion at the Hyades, and into a dungeon under Egypt at Sculptor, and is retrieved from the dungeon due to his ability to interpret dreams. Daniel is retrieved from the Lion's den after he had demonstrated the power to interpret dreams and to calm the beasts.

In the book of Genesis, the bond woman wife of Abraham sojourns through the valley of death and weeps for life giving waters with Abraham's son Ishmael, which means "God will hear," verses 21:14-20; And Abraham rose up early in the morning, and took bread, and a bottle of water, and gave it unto Hagar, putting it on her shoulder, and the child, and sent her away: and she departed, and wandered in the wilderness of Beersheba. And the water was spent in the bottle, and she cast the child under one of the shrubs. And she went, and sat her down over against him a good way off, as it were a bowshot: for she said, Let me not see the death of the child. And she sat over against him, and lift up her voice, and wept. And God heard the voice of the lad; and the angel of God called to Hagar out of heaven, and said unto her, What aileth thee, Hagar? fear not; for God hath heard the voice of the lad where he is. Arise, lift up the lad, and hold him in thine hand; for I will make him a great nation. And God opened her eyes, and she saw a well of water; and she went, and filled the bottle with water, and gave the lad drink. And God was with the lad; and he grew, and dwelt in the wilderness, and became an archer. This child was the asterisms known as Orion and the Sculptor, Hagar was Andromeda, and the child lay under the celestial tree of life, until he became an archer as Sagittarius, with the aid of the water from the well at the Hyades. The story of Hagar and Ishmael is a clear representation of the story of Isis saving the body of Osiris from a river and a tree and then giving birth to Horus as Antinous. Hagar's son does not have the right to inherit the kingdom to come, so Ishmael becomes Sagittarius, Antinous being reserved for Isaac.

All of these stories are bound within limited perceptions of the stars of heaven. To understand them it is imperative that the asterism images be allowed to change as the stories unfold. We are bound to the Earth, and our cosmos is limited to the stars that we can perceive. Our lives are unbounded if we do not engrave the celestial images but allow them to be born again and again and again, in the spiraling cycle known as the Divine Wind of the Utchat. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:Exodus 20:4 To leave the "land of Bondage" and regain rational control, it became necessary to separate the Chosen People from the Cosmic Perspective. Laws are given and received to assure that return to the "Bull of My Mother" would not be possible.
