Monthly Symbol, March 2015: Unity Wings (Winged Solar Disk) (post updated)

imageEgyptian Symbols, Winged Sun at http://egyptian-gods.org/egyptian-symbols-winged-sun/: “The winged sun is one of the oldest Egyptian icons and symbols that appeared as early as the Old Kingdom. It is usually a symbol of royalty, divinity and power not only in Egypt but also in the whole Near East including the countries of Mesopotamia, Persia and Anatolia. In Egypt, it is a symbol of the soul and its eternity. It is often placed in temples as a memento to the people of their eternal nature. During the Middle Kingdom, it evolved into a symbol of protection and became a popular protective amulet during the Ptolemaic Period.”

Example of modern symbolic use: The Unity wings symbol / the winged globe explained 1956 by Charles Fillmore, co-founder of Unity at http://www.unitync.net/Wings.html:

“It is an ancient Egyptian symbol, but it is found in various forms in the religions of other races. It represents the relation existing between Spirit, soul, and body. Soul gives wings to body. Spirit is the enveloping principle, like the atmosphere in which both soul and body exist, and from which they draw their original inspiration. ”

“As man develops spiritual consciousness, he attains the realization of the soul as the wings of the body. Back of the Soul is Spirit, which quickens and energizes the soul; that is, gives the soul wings.”

The Magic of Merging with the Soul

In silence
my soul collects
the parts of
my personality
into a wholeness,
where they
automatically
exist as
a harmonious
team
in balance,
in wisdom,
in unison and joy.
No push,
no pull,
no inner strife,
just peace
and ease.

I am sensing
the connectedness
of everything
and everyone.
The past
and the
future
readjust.
The paradigm
shifts.

What´s
beyond
the stars
is in
here.

Laughter is the Best Medicine: The Health Benefits of Humor and Laughter

 

“Humor is infectious. The sound of roaring laughter is far more contagious than any cough, sniffle, or sneeze. When laughter is shared, it binds people together and increases happiness and intimacy. Laughter also triggers healthy physical changes in the body. Humor and laughter strengthen your immune system, boost your energy, diminish pain, and protect you from the damaging effects of stress. Best of all, this priceless medicine is fun, free, and easy to use.” Read the article of Melinda Smith, M.A. and Jeanne Segal, Ph.D. here at helpguide.org http://www.helpguide.org/articles/emotional-health/laughter-is-the-best-medicine.htm

Poem: Picking Roses

 

Higher powers
don´t order us
to kneel down
in front of them

If we bow to
the angels
they bow
back to us
rejoicingly
sending roses
on our path
when we 
understand
the eternal equality
in our diversity

Healthy humility
derives from
the open heart,
it´s not about
being lower,
less deserving,
nor is respect
bound to
being higher,

wisdom can
take any form,
and ultimately,
has it truly got
a form at all,
yet we might
sense it smiling
with a sparkle
in the eye
inside of each
and everyone

Poem: Washing Dishes

 

I´m washing dishes
and suddenly
sensing this
connectedness to
the huge cosmic
mystery
 
The Divine is
washing these
dishes and it
amuses me
so

The great
miraculous
includes
the seemingly
most ordinary

Poem: Awaking the Dream

 

you touch
the moon,
the stars
and the gates of
heaven in me,
I merge with
the sun
in the ocean
and the bluegreen
woods
in the core
of the earth
in the high sky
below the
flowery
meadows

Sonnet XVII

I do not love you as if you were salt-rose, or topaz,
or the arrow of carnations the fire shoots off.
I love you as certain dark things are to be loved,
in secret, between the shadow and the soul.

I love you as the plant that never blooms
but carries in itself the light of hidden flowers;
thanks to your love a certain solid fragrance,
risen from the earth, lives darkly in my body.

I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where.
I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride;
so I love you because I know no other way

than this: where I does not exist, nor you,
so close that your hand on my chest is my hand,
so close that your eyes close as I fall asleep.

Pablo Neruda
