The Circles Of Your Mind

Flower of Life

I’ve been writing on the Flower of Life and how it is the foundation on which all is built, and it reminded me of this song from my youth.

Listen while you read: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WEhS9Y9HYjU  Perhaps not the best known version, it was covered by more famous artists, but Noel Harrison sang the original.

Flower of Life at the Osiridion.

Round like a circle in a spiral, like a wheel within a wheel
Never ending or beginning on an ever-spinning reel
Like a snowball down a mountain, or a carnival balloon
Like a carousel that’s turning running rings around the moon
Like a clock whose hands are sweeping past the minutes on its face
And the world is like an apple whirling silently in space
Like the circles that you find in the windmills of your mind

 Seed of LifeFlower of Life and Seed of Life, Abydos column: Not easy to spot but David Furlong has helpfully outlined the various figures. http://www.davidfurlong.co.uk/images/EA_abydos_flower12.jpg  You can read more about the symbolism on his website http://www.davidfurlong.co.uk/egypttour_osirion.html.

windmills of your mindLike a tunnel that you follow to a tunnel of its own
Down a hollow to a cavern where the sun has never shone
Like a door that keeps revolving in a half-forgotten dream
Like the ripples from a pebble someone tosses in a stream
Like a clock whose hands are sweeping past the minutes on its face
And the world is like an apple whirling silently in space
Like the circles that you find in the windmills of your mind

Pictures hangingPictures hanging in a hallway and the fragment of a song
Half-remembered names and faces, but to whom do they belong?
When you knew that it was over were you suddenly aware
That the autumn leaves were turning to the colour of her hair!
Like a circle in a spiral, like a wheel within a wheel
Never ending or beginning on an ever-spinning reel
As the images unwind
Like the circles that you find in the windmills of your mind.

The Osirion, Abydos

The Osirion, Abydos, Egypt. Way below ground level because this is one of the oldest and most sacred places in Egypt. The temple where the mysteries of Osiris – birth, death and rebirth – were enacted annually. We are staring into a deep pool. Two more steps and we’d have been fifteen feet below water. Although there are hidden pillars that could support you to walk on water. It’s a tricky place. The Osirion was being cleared of its clogging reeds during a low water period. Normally the water is almost up to the doorway at the rear, but it retreats annually. The Flower of Life and other images are on columns to the right but this is probably a later inscription (sometimes attributed to Pythagoras). This is where the mysteries of Osiris were enacted each year. On the first visit in the early eighties I was surprised to find the Flower of Life engraved on its walls. It’s still there. But you’ll need to read my new crystal grids book to discover the secrets hidden within the symbol.

water scummy and green

It more often looks like this, the water scummy and green and decorated with old plastic bags (why do people leave their litter like that?). I painted it fifteen years ago. Exactly the same time of year as the photos above, but you can see the difference in the water level. A forbidden place to all but the initiated. I’d visited many times in my travels to Egypt but could only access it when doing the healing trip on behalf of Margaret Cahill who was ‘under cover of darkness’ at the time (see Light Becoming on my blogs). We sat above the Osirion and read the invocation of  Khamwaset from Alan Richardson’s Inner Guide to Egypt to assist her healing. It seems to have worked. She’s in remission now. All part of the cycle.
