Speaking of the Moon …
Writing this book was an extraordinary journey. Each week over three years I worked my way through the book of Revelation. I learned so much, I was surprised often, and my spiritual understanding of humanity grew significantly.
Once you begin to delved into this book the understanding of our life’s purpose grows. This is The Revelation. It shines a light on the evolution of consciousness like nothing else can.
I am grateful for the opportunity to take this journey, I hope you will join me.
“And a great portent appeared in heaven, a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars; she was with child and she cried out in her pangs of birth, in anguish for delivery. And another portent appeared in heaven; behold, a great red dragon, with seven heads and ten horns, and seven diadems upon his heads. Rev 12:1-3
Like two pillars we could place these women at each end of creation. One adorned by the cosmos, the other adorned with the gifts of the earth; one producing a child, the other producing a cup of abominations and impurities; one crying out in pain, the other drunk.
The word abomination is interesting; bdelugma. It is used in Titus 1:16 about those who profess to know God (or spiritual truth) but deny him by their deeds. In the spiritual economy our commitment to our spiritual development must be accompanied by deliberate actions based on what we learn until they become an integral part of us. Otherwise it is like a gardener describing what he has planted in his garden but nothing ever grows there.
Babylon, representing the great gift of human ego, can also stand for the egotistical human trait of the know-all. When spiritual truth begins to be revealed to those who pursue it, perhaps accompanied by a sense of the existence of God, the immediate experience is the realisation of how little we actually know. Confirmation that we have begun to grasp spiritual truth comes when we are able to handle this sense of knowing little but being patiently determined to know more. For some people this sense of not knowing defeats them.” From The Virgin and the Harlot by Kristina Kaine
