Symbolism of the Star of David Decoded

Star of David

By Cathy Eck

Symbols

The Star of David, like any symbol or story produced by initiates, can be seen from the True-Self or the false-self perspective.  When you know the True-Self point of view, you understand why most of the world is stuck in level confusion.

Symbols were designed as shortcuts in communication that reveal and conceal at the same time.  Those who see the True Self perspective also see the false interpretation.  But people who are imprisoned within the illusion can’t see the truth.  Thus symbols have provided an unfair advantage in communication for thousands of years.

Symbols themselves have no power.  They only have the power that humans give them.  If we don’t understand the symbols, they support the beliefs of those who do know the meaning ascribed to them.

 

Star of David

The Star of David is the communion of two equilateral triangles pointing in opposing directions.  It’s associated with King David, father of King Solomon who built the first Temple of Solomon.

The upper triangle of the Star of David is explained in detail in my articles on the triangle process.  The top of the upper triangle (True Self) represents unity, unconditional love, and oneness.  The bottom of the upper triangle (false self) is unity divided into opposites.  But unity can be divided two very different ways.

In first-cause creation, the opposites are complementary like light and dark or male and female.  In second-cause creation, the opposites are enemies like right-wrong, win-lose, dominance-submission, or the Grand Puba, good and evil.

 

Cross Process

In the cross process, I explained creation from first cause.  The ancient even-armed cross contained upper and lower triangles like the Star of David, but they weren’t overlapped.  The bottom triangle symbolized the mirror image of the top triangle.  The initiate’s goal was to see his own pure mind reflected in the material world.

The even-armed cross represented the maxim, “As above, so below.”  Thought began at the top point of the cross in unity.  It was divided into complements, then manifested on earth as a material reflection of the mental realm.  Imagine an artist with an idea; they acquire black and white (complementary) paints, then they make a material creation.  Thus man becomes the channel to produce God-like ideas in the material world.

The crucified cross (or second-cause creation) also begins with unity;  thought is divided in a second-cause way, such as good and evil.   Now we are creating man’s ideas from beliefs; so we get war, pain, suffering, and disease.  Ultimately, creating in this way would cause complete destruction of earth in short order.

 

Star of David to the Rescue

A new bottom triangle is created in the Star of David.  The bottom triangle begins at the top with second-cause duality (good and evil) but manifests an improved effect.  Religion and science both provide seeming solutions to good and evil’s problems.  The goal is to create the appearance of True Self reflection while maintaining second-cause thinking.

Let’s assume that our beliefs cause a disease.  We need someone with knowledge, an elevated belief system, to fix our problem.  We go to the doctor, empty our wallet, and the doctor fixes the effects (symptoms) with the knowledge of good and evil.  We seem to be back to our old True Self, but we’re not.  We’re healed, but not cured.

To be cured, we must remove the S (serpent or beliefs in the knowledge of good and evil) from the curSe.  Instead, we have beliefs that caused the problem and more beliefs (knowledge) that fixed the problem.  We are stuck in the illusion.

Look at the Star of David again.  The bottom triangle elevates the knowledge of good and evil or second-cause creation.  The knowledge elevation creates a new effect that appears to be the mirror image of the True Self.  But it’s done with magic or beliefs, not truth.

Within the center of the Star of David is the hexagram.  A hex is a spell.  Those who live within the hexagram are stuck in the spell (illusion).  The word live spelled backwards is evil.  The word gospel actually came from the word Godspell.  That says it all.

The Star of David contains the dreaded 666.  It has six points, six lines, and produces the six-sided hexagram, the false God’s domain.

 

Save Me True Self

Symbolism is beautiful because the same symbol that imprisons us can save us if we find the True Self’s perspective.   As long as we follow the knowledge of good and evil, we’re stuck in the hex like the Tar Baby.  But if we recognize the hex for what it is — just a bunch of beliefs, and we let those beliefs go; we poke out into one of the little triangles on the edge.  We live within the world, but aren’t stuck in the hex.

But there is more!  Through the single eye of unity (True Self), we come to see the formula for an extraordinary life using the hex (illusion).  We start in unity and divide thought using only first-cause principles.  Instead of moving straight to manifestation of our desire as we did in the cross process, we linger in the creative process mastering our subject matter.  We fully immerse ourselves in our passion and develop an extraordinary level of thinking or talent that elevates us above our original division of thought.  We now produce that which could be called a masterpiece.

Likewise, a perfect leader (or parent, teacher, healer) who rises above their own second-cause self interests, masters of unconditional love, assumes responsibility for all, clears their mind of beliefs, and leads from their True Self creates a heaven on earth for everyone.  The material earth (the effect) becomes a pure and glorious reflection of their pure mind.  Thus initiates entered as men and were reborn as Gods.  They used the  wisdom of their True Self to enhance the dual illusion creating a Heaven on Earth that exceeded God’s imagination becoming the Son that pleased God.

Michelangelo’s Secret and the Power of the Feminine

God in the Brain painted by Michelangelo on the Sistine Chapel Ceiling

Few people notice that Michelangelo placed God (as well as a woman and children) inside the right half of a brain. He was trying to tell us something important.

Michelangelo’s Secret

When the story of Adam and Eve became widely accepted as true, the Adams of the world rose to a place of false superiority, as if incapable of making an error; and the Eves got blamed for the problems that the Adams manifested.

Adam demonstrated a very good trick, how to fake innocence and blame the feminine.  And so it has been.  The Adams blame, and the Eves accept the blame stripping away the power of the feminine for men and women.  This is the curse of humanity that we perpetuate by repeating the same pattern of thinking over and over.

This fall story plays out every day in homes, schools, offices, and political arenas.  The person who claims authority (the masculine Adam role) in any relationship usually claims innocence, while the one in the feminine Eve role feels they did something wrong that they can’t take back.

 

Michelangelo’s God in a Brain

The fall story must have weighed heavy on Michelangelo’s mind.  Being a gay artist, he lived as an outcast in society.  Outcasts don’t have authority; they live their lives in the feminine Eve role.

Michelangelo’s only power was in his gift.  No one questioned him when it came to sculpting or his fresco (even though he didn’t know how to fresco when he accepted the Sistine Chapel commission).  Michelangelo painted an obscure message on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel.  He painted God in the right half of a brain.

Within each of us, we have a masculine mind aspect and a feminine mind aspect.  Michelangelo’s right brain is a metaphor for being in the right or feminine mind.  Women mostly project out their masculine mind aspect, and most men do the opposite by projecting their feminine.  But a gay man would be more comfortable in the mind of the feminine.

Ultimately, our masculine and feminine are designed to work together as equals, like Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden.  When we are in our True Self power, our masculine and feminine aspects always agree, are in balance, and are not projected outward without our awareness.  In the ancient world, this was called the alchemical marriage.  It was the goal of initiation.

When we have this inner congruence, God or our True Self is our male aspect, our inner authority; and our creative feminine rests in the comfort and safety of this true authority.  Expression of our gifts is effortless because we are whole.

 

Michelangelo Knew the Power of the Feminine

Michelangelo was part of a largely gay artist community in Florence during the Renaissance along with Leonardo and Raphael (the other Ninja Turtles).  They studied in secret, performed illegal human dissections, and hid the truth of life in their work for us to find.  They clearly didn’t fit the mold of the Catholic church, and they knew that fighting the church would cost them their life.

They took commissions from the church, but then left messages all over the Vatican for us to discover with delight today.  They could do this because their gifts were so powerful that they became the authority when they did their work, and no one was the wiser.

God in a big old right brain is one of the gems that Michelangelo left.  Secret society symbolism looked like interesting art to the masses and even the religious elite; but to the brotherhood, it spoke volumes.

Secret societies and ancient schools of initiation taught the power of the feminine.  Isis resurrected the Egyptian King Osiris.  Babylonians worshipped Ishtar.  Ancient Greeks worshipped Athena, and the Knights Templar placed black Madonnas in churches.  Even the Holy Grail is a feminine cup.

There were always powerful creative men who understood this, and they hid the power of the feminine message in everything from watermarks to stained glass windows.  The religious and political elite, however, needed to keep the power of the feminine under wraps because anyone who reclaims that power can’t be lied to.

 

The Power of the Feminine and God

Michelangelo put the power of the feminine with God because the initiates knew that the feminine within didn’t fall.  The feminine is receptive; it can’t fall unless the male aspect falls and takes it down with it.  Our inner male holds beliefs; and when we cover our unconditionally loving God (True Self) within with beliefs, our feminine gets a little bitchy.  She struggles to express her creativity.

Michelangelo exposed the power of the feminine (women and children) by placing them with God in the right side of the brain.  Creating is about living in the image and likeness of the Creator God.  Adam was left alone barely able to reach God’s finger.  He represents the intellectual male mind, filled with beliefs, who blames his emotional Eve mind for his problems or sins.

Michelangelo died feeling like a failed man.  I think about that often.  The power and glory of his art was a brilliant light, but it was in the closet.  He could not be open about the love of his life, who he painted into The Judgment fresco; and more important, he could not be open about the truth of life that he hid in his art.  He lived quietly in the background while those that lied ruled the world.  If I could have a word with Michelangelo, I would want to let him know that he was perfect, that he has been a true role model for me, and that his message has been received.
