This post may be my second favorite post that I have made on The Point of a Sharp Instrument, but the event itself is by far my fondest memory. In this post, I recounted and discussed the birth of my daughter, which was done at home. Home-birth is a natural and safe event that has taken place for centuries. It is only in modern times that we have been lead to believe that birth is a dangerous event that must be handled by doctors in a hospital setting. Taking the hospital aspect out of birth allows for less stress for the mother and the baby and in the long run, helps to contribute to the peaceful well being of both individuals. It’s also beneficial for the family as a whole, since the home environment is comfortable and an experience midwife can offer the necessary post-birth health care and support. Enjoy!
In this installment, I discuss the sacred geometric structure of the vacuum of space and how these mysterious patterns and geometric configurations have been closely guarded through the teachings of the mystery schools of antiquity. Modern science is validating these ideas more and more each day. In what ways did ancient traditions choose to veil these mysterious symbols?
Featuring spoken word from Andrew Harvey and music by Hans Christian this powerful piece entrances and takes the listener on a journey. The poetry is profound and awash with alchemical, hermetic, and mystical symbolism. Lose yourself in meditation and enjoy.
In this post, I discuss how Sacred Geometry has been suppressed by modern religion and the powerful elite throughout history. It is my belief that before the before the Roman Catholic Church did everything in their power to crack down on other religious traditions, Sacred Geometry was known and revered. Elements of it can be seen in ancient cathedrals and symbolism. Some symbolism even made it through to Christian symbolism, though it has been obscured through time.
In this post, I delve into the misunderstood symbol of Venus. The planet Venus, which was named for the Greek goddess of the same name. Venus was the goddess of Love and represents the Divine Feminine. The planet Venus is also referred to as the morning star that is the first to appear at dawn. In Latin, Venus was known as Lucifer, meaning the “Light-Bringer”, or “Shining One”. This is where everything gets confused as far as Venus as a symbol is concerned. Since mystery traditions such as Freemasonry revere Venus, they must be connected to Luciferianism, right?
