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.
