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.
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.
