ROCK OF AGES,
THE BRIGHT FACE OF RITA
The Denderah zodiac is the Egyptian Rock of Ages. It was fabricated after the conquests of Alexander the Great and the reestablishment of the sovereignty of Egypt. It tells the story of the life of Alexander, and it shows why the Oracle of Siwah declared Alexander to be the Son of Amun. Egyptian cosmology, Greek theology, and Persian Astrology were merged to fulfill the prophecy of salvation which had echoed through the lands around the Mediterranean Sea since the days of conquest by the Aryan hordes from Mesopotamia and the Asian step.
Alexander never saw the completion of his liberation of Greece, Palestine, and Egypt, but the organization which he inspired carried out his Brotherhood of Man campaign until the days of Caesar Augustus, when the Persians conquered them again under the name of Mithras and the Roman Empire. Hellenism, Judaism, and Egyptian Gnosticism were all subdued by the tyranny of a few uncompassionate men. The prophecy which is written on the Denderah zodiac has now come to pass, for it says that it would be two thousand years before Western Civilization would regain the sense of Cosmic Presence it lost to the tyrants of Rome, and regain the compassion of the Beloved Son. Now, precisely on the schedule of the Denderah mandala, a woman brings another "rock of ages" to a world that sold its soul to the materialism that was Rome.
Somewhat before this time of devastation in the Levant and Europe, there were people living in Australia who put a Rock of Ages together to tell the same story as the Denderah zodiac. This rock is so simple, and yet so profound. It is the Toowoomba rock, which shows an Aborigine face above two serpents circling in a cloud. This rock was brought to the attention of the Western World by the woman child born on March 25, 1944 at 6:39 PM, when the sun sat below the queen of heaven and the celestial woman of bondage, and Venus sat below a flying horse and the king of heaven. The purpose of the child's life has just been reviewed from east to west. It shows the mother of heaven about to rise in the east as the sun was setting in the west, and Venus was before the sun under the horizon.
In the predawn hour of that day, Venus was the Morning Star, foretelling the coming of the Bright Face of Rita. The expression, Bright Face of Rita, is a name given to the sun in Hindu mythology. Rita represents "right running," or the precession of the Tabernacle of the Sun, the vernal equinox. The implication of the stars is quite simple to understand, for it speaks of a new order in the cosmos. The spirit of the Mother of All Living was reincarnated that day in March 1944. Yet, it would be nearly forty years before the child should make her appointment with destiny. Why was it her destiny? Why was she chosen out of some two billion possible children born with the same potential? Well the answers to those questions are written in the stars. She was not chosen, she was found by the ROC. The spirit of the Mother of All living would have inspired whatever child was born with the appropriate cosmic signs. It is not a question of alternative choices. What was to transpire in the days of this child was nothing less than the rebirth of classical human culture, and the birth of a new cosmic cycle. This new cosmic cycle has the auspicious condition of being the Moment of the First Occasion, which had been celebrated by humanity for tens of thousands of years. If the Mother of All Living did not attempt to accomplish the task of giving birth to the new child of human culture in this lifetime, then she would have to wait for another 26,000 years for another attempt that would align with the stars.
Look again at the sun setting in the Land Down Under when this child was born. Can you see the man holding the scepter with the Phoenix above him and the Stork with its head upon the horizon? Or how about the World Tree under the west horizon with the Sun and Venus as sentinels on two pillars at the sides of its trunk? If these images are hard to find with the stars connected, imagine how much more difficult it must have been to find cosmic significance by the Aborigine who had to look at the heavens "up side down."
Yet, we know from the available record that the Aborigine saw up as the direction toward Virgo, and down as the direction toward Sculptor, the man with the staff, just like the rest of the human world. If we turn toward the rising sun on the morning of March 25, 1944, we see a sign of destiny rising from the earth. Just before dawn, the end of the Flight of Isis was visible as the Phoenix rose with the Stork, the Southern Fish, the scapegoat of Capricorn and the Feathered Serpent. With the Good Samaritan help of the Beloved Son, Aquarius, the Man at the side of the road of planets in the ditch at the Bottom of the Galaxy became a Reborn King at the mouth of Quetzalcoatl. A woman child was born before the message of cosmic salvation fell below the west horizon that day. But, there is more. Above the Sun in the cup of Aquarius is the planet of Venus. The Morning Star was Love. And to the Northeast under Pegasus and the horizon a woman carried a rock wrapped in a swaddling cloth. This woman has a place at the recognized foundations of the modern Western Civilization.
Sometime between 1000 BC and 700 BC, a Greek poet named Hesiod wrote a poem called Theogony. In the poem he tells the story of the generations of the gods of Greece. Heaven was a man, and Earth was a woman. Their names were Gaia and Ouranos. They gave birth to many beings, in particular the Titans. The youngest son of Ouranos was named Kronos, whose wife was named Rhea. Kronos was Father Time. To gain control of the land of the gods, Kronos castrated his Father, as he lay upon Earth. To this day, the parents of Kronos are to be found at the center of the galactic axis where the circle eyed Cyclops lives. However, being the father of time, Kronos had the habit of consuming his children. Being greatly disturbed by the loss of her children, Rhea took it upon herself to save her youngest man child who was yet to be born. So upon the moment of his birth, Rhea wrapped a rock in swaddling cloths and fed it to Father Time.
In this episode we learn at least three important things about our soul and its heritage. First, memories get lost in the bosom when there are no adequate reminders of them. In order to achieve eternal life, human's, driven by the emotions for life, created monuments in stone that preserved memories so that Father Time would not consume their childhood. We also learn that the new man child of the gods was born in a dark cave beyond King Kronos, and beyond Time. The child was brought to Olympus on an eagle's wings. This man child was Zeus.
When Zeus grew to become a man, he caused his father Kronos to bring up all the sibling children of Zeus. The rock was made into a monument for the sake of memory. Zeus established his twelve siblings to become the gods of Mount Olympus. Given that Zeus brought back the memories of lost childhood, Zeus is the god of rational being. From that day forth, Olympus was guided by the rational hand of Zeus. His twelve siblings became the new measures of time. One wandering star was given the duties of keeping the measure of time in proportion, his name became Saturn, the Ancient of Days.
Now we are to hear of the birth of a woman child in the land below the Cave of Zeus' birth. When she is born, the birth of Zeus, the savior of all the gods of Olympus, was demonstrated above the rising sun, when Love was the morning star. And just below the horizon, we saw Queen Rhea holding a rock wrapped in the swaddling cloths of the Milky Way.
To better picture this divine conveyance, go to the moment shown here when the greater and lesser lights of heaven crossed the zenith meridian and see if the source and reflection of their light will reveal a sign to tell us who was being fed the rock in swaddling cloths. At the very moment when the genitals of Ouranos crossed the natal zenith, Queen Cassiopeia and Princess Andromeda also were on the zenith meridian. The rock in Andromeda's hand was in the swaddling cloth of the Milky Way, as a napkin for the feast of King Cepheus. This is the moment of the birth of a New World order, as Greece left the Lower World and rose to Olympus with Zeus. The Sun to the right of the bottom of the galaxy was in the Land of the Rising Sun. The Moon to the left of the bottom of the galaxy was in the Land of the Falling Sun. A comet that spends most of its time in the region between the circlet of Pisces and the cup of Aquarius, was in attendance precisely on the zenith meridian.
These are the stars spoken of in the Garden of Eden, where the Tree of Life once grew. Yet, there it is precisely where it needs to be for Isis to recover the lost body of Osiris. Look closely, and you can see the perfect fitting sarcophagus of Osiris, in the heavens below the King of Byblos. And while we are on this section of the heavens, we must not forget Blood Moon, the mother of Hanahpu and Xbalanque of the Maya Popol Vuh. It was said that she, a daughter of the Lords of Xibalba, found the gourd head of One Hanahpu hanging in the fork of a tree. The head spit upon her and she was impregnated with the seed of the dead king. Then she went to the top of the world and gave birth to the hero Twins. The Hero Twins came back to Xibalba and defeated the Lords at their own game, with the trickery of death and resurrection. When the Lords of Xibalba, One Death and Seven Death, asked to be killed, so that they could experience death and resurrection, the Hero Twins had tricked them in the same way that Rhea had tricked Kronos. All of these tricks had the fundamental outcome of establishing a more rational world. A world of reason by virtue of the child on the eagles wings.
Lest we not honor many of the departed souls, remember for the moment the passage which described the near death experience of Hagar's son Ishamel.
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. (KJV)
Now, many years have come to pass since Hagar (Andromeda) opened her eyes at the fountain of youth, and her son (Sculptor) became an archer (Sagittarius). The seed from her son is the largest single denomination of faithful in the whole earth, consisting of more than a billion souls, who have followed Mohammed to cycle the Kaaba stone in Mecca, and to cross the Bridge at Sirrah (Andromeda's head).
But, an even larger collection of souls has come to hear the call of another who rose from the Great Potter's Mill House. All told in many denominations they number greater than 1.2 billion souls. These peoples have three accounts of the stone being taken away which saw the death of time, the Son of Heaven, and the Father of Zeus.
In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre. And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it. His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow: And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead men.
And when the sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome, had bought sweet spices, that they might come and anoint him. And very early in the morning the first day of the week, they came unto the sepulchre at the rising of the sun. And they said among themselves, Who shall roll us away the stone from the door of the sepulchre? And when they looked, they saw that the stone was rolled away: for it was very great. And entering into the sepulchre, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, clothed in a long white garment; and they were affrighted. And he saith unto them, Be not affrighted: Ye seek Jesus of Nazareth, which was crucified: he is risen; he is not here: behold the place where they laid him.
Now upon the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they came unto the sepulchre, bringing the spices which they had prepared, and certain others with them. And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulchre. And they entered in, and found not the body of the Lord Jesus. And it came to pass, as they were much perplexed thereabout, behold, two men stood by them in shining garments: And as they were afraid, and bowed down their faces to the earth, they said unto them, Why seek ye the living among the dead? He is not here, but is risen: remember how he spake unto you when he was yet in Galilee, Saying, The Son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again. And they remembered his words, And returned from the sepulchre, and told all these things unto the eleven, and to all the rest.
What an awesome responsibility to place upon the shoulders of a child born in the Land Down Under, where native peoples cannot find the Word of God in the heavens above, because the icons are drawn up side down. Even so, they created a work of art, in the form of a Bright Face of Rita, that carries the message of time and the message of One Cosmic Family. Below the face they portray the fundamental battle between life and death as two serpents circling in a cloud. All are drawn on the fundamental essence of the Cosmic Mother, a rock of ages. The age depicted on the rock is the Age of Enlightenment, the Age of the 5th Son. All the child has been asked to do is bring to rational consciousness the meaning of life known by all Native Peoples before the Titans of the Modern World. But, her job is not one of great effort, it is one of incredible faith. How can one woman, though born under the Dove, tell the whole world that it is time to be reasonable about the things that have happened to the Mother of All Living?
Actually, it has been done in many ways before, but not exactly the way she has brought it about. It is not just a Golden Pyramid that she harbors in her soul, it is the whole history of humankind, as it has been lived on Mother Earth. One simple rock tells the whole story of the ages. Man comes into the material world as an unblemished rock clean as fresh snow. He gets beat up and knocked around and some records are inscribed upon his soul. Then in an eternal struggle to survive, it dawns on him, that the struggle is the problem. Life is not for the survivors, life is for the witnesses. The survivors waste years struggling to stay among the fittest, only to realize that survival of the fittest is a struggle against death. A struggle that must, without exception, be lost. Having given up the struggle for life, the Bright Face of Rita acknowledges life, and becomes a shining monument for eternity. A stone worth consuming today, just as in yesteryear, and in all the tomorrows to come. This is not the etching of an archer, or in this case a boomerang hunter, this is the spirit of the Mother of All Living declaring that the Father of All Living left a message for all time, on a Rock of Ages. She wants the world to know why she fed the King of Titans, a rock in baby cloths.
That message is quite simple. It says that success comes to those who find a means to join the conscious mind to the science of created intent. This is the Sacred Science of humankind. It distinguishes the animal consciousness from the human consciousness. This capacity to use memory as a tool for prophecy is the Eye of Ra, the Bright Face of Rita, and the Aborigine face glowing like the sun above a cloud of two serpents inscribed on a rock found in the lands of Toowoomba. The sacred science is a very simple process. We can find the sanctity by taking the IOU's out of our conscious mind and joining the remains of our conscious to the water serpent within the material truth of creation, which is science.
CONSCIOUS - IOU's = CONSC
CONSC +SCIENCE = CONSCIENCE
What is not seen when we attack life by driving the serpent of chaos under our boat, is that the Universal One (Utchat) is at the helm. If we turned around and looked through the Captain's (Ra) spiritual light, and his guides, we would see that we have asked the Universal One to give us problems to solve. The purpose of the problems is to hide the conscience we do not want to see, and protect the Bird of Paradise sitting upon our bow. We take the heroic opportunity to protect the bird of personal truth at our bow from perceived danger. Our fear is the source of chaos. We are empowered by visible material urges and invisible subliminal urges. But, the bird we protect is our own perception of self, which sits before us as our eternal goal. By turning to see the Creator's will, it becomes clear that his two guides are joined as one. The guides are consciousness, Horus, and scientific knowledge, Thoth. When joined together, the truly creative person lets his conscience be his guide. When the self actualizing individual ceases to ask for problems, the sun boat Comes Forth by Day on its own, and a New Dawn opens the way to rapid progress. It is only in the darkness of night when Osiris has fallen into the sleep of forgetfulness, caused by self rationalizations, that Seth usurps the Creator's truth. Then the Night Boat struggles to make progress over a sea of chaos. This vignette is a portrayal of the constellations Argo Navis, Lepus, Columba, and Hydrus, at the circle of the south celestial pole which cycles around the south ecliptic pole. Thus, it too is the Word of God.
Compare the journey of Seth's night boat with the boats traveling over the back of Nut. It is apparent that Seth seized the opportunity to be a hero, and slowed the boat to a crawl, because he displaced Maat at the bow. If he had been more aware of the Bright Face of Rita, his conscience would have guided him beyond the troubled waters, and into the Holy Chasm within which all dreams eventually become reality. It was doubt in the ancestors, caused by poor self esteem, that became the heroic opportunity which caused Seth to assume the position at the bow of the boat defending his small self perception. But, because the rational mind denies the intuition of the ages, he is alone in the night with nothing but the perceived chaos of lost identity as has companion. His world is locked into a battle for survival. He is not threatened, for the serpent of chaos desires his dream. In other words, Kronos desires to consume his children, and the rational minded ones wish to prevent the loss of memory to time.
Now, let us close this analysis of a natal chart, with one final correspondence. If you have followed the words and the images placed before the face, then it should be evident that there is some truth to the idea that feminine intuition can see what masculine rationality cannot. This is the fundamental premise that began to drive the woman child born when Zavijava reached the east horizon. Look closely at the location of the first star in the Virgin to rise above the horizon. It is precisely at the back of the head of Nut. In the ancient wisdom of the vignette of Nut and Geb, this is the precise location of the Feather of Maat that was taken to become the autopilot for the Day Boat of the Creator. Look again and see that the serpent is behind the woman, and it rose above the horizon before her. Also behind her head is Neptune (Poseidon, Earth Shaker), and through the eyes of the Bright Face of Rita, the Hindu name for the right running Vernal Sun, the Earth prepares to come above the projected horizon. This lady is the Mother of All Living coming forth by day. In this perspective from the Land Down Under, it is a topsy turvy world, but the intention of this maiden is unmistakable. She reaches for the lily bulb that marks the top of creation. This makes her the Mistress of the Mystery of Time. Her dream came before her when Pluto and Jupiter brought forth the Kingdom of Heaven. Now it is her turn to witness the Cosmic Dream Come True.
The whole of rational truth has never risen above the intuition of Common Sense. The Popol Vuh says it well, by bringing forth First Father from the mouth of First Mother. It is self evident that the Cosmic One is guiding the Barque of the Sun, and it is Common Sense to acknowledge that each individual has a special place in the path of the Barque. We may impede its progress by our search for self identity, but we will never have the power to better the intuition of She Who Faces her Lord.
