The Spirit of Kiya
.......That each day I may walk unceasingly on the banks of my water, that my Soul may repose on the branches of the trees which I planted, that I may refresh myself under the shadow of my sycamore…...
Inscription found in an Egyptian tomb.
Sycamore trees were held to be sacred in Ancient Egypt and are the first trees represented in Ancient Art.
The Balance of Energy
R. A. Schwaller de Lubicz, lived for fifteen years among the temples and tombs of Luxor and Karnak, in order to try and “penetrate the secret symbolism of the hieroglyphs.”
There are two parts of the temple; the outer temple where the beginning initiates are allowed to come, and the inner temple where one can enter only after proven worthy and ready to acquire the higher knowledge and insights.
One of the concepts that the Egyptians held was that man was the microcosm of the universe – the macrocosm. This is the reason for the saying: “know thyself.” Their spiritual aspect of this concept held that within man is the divine essence of the Creator and the Heavens. And this finds expression in their teaching: “The kingdom of heaven is within you; and whosoever shall know himself shall find it.”
