What does it mean to have eyes of flame and feet of bronze?

The Revelation is just that, a Revelation about who we are and why we are living this life. We have to know this otherwise we are unconscious. The last book in the Bible is a wonderful awakener, revealing to us our purpose.

I have written about many clues found in this Book which we can use to awaken our own thoughts about life on this earth and our preparation for life in the spiritual worlds once this life has ended.

“And to the angel of the church in Thyati’ra write: ‘The words of the Son of God, who has eyes like a flame of fire, and whose feet are like burnished bronze. “‘I know your works, your love and faith and service and patient endurance, and that your latter works exceed the first.

“This presence of Christ in our consciousness also means that our sight becomes a flame. The light of the sun, which enables us to see, now turns into a flame. We know that sunlight can become a flame in the presence of a magnifying glass. So our experiences are magnified and we will see everything in more detail. This may not be so comfortable because we may see things that we don’t really want to look at. If we start to see things in more detail we also need to have increased understanding. This could be why “the Son of God, has eyes like a flame of fire, and feet (which are under our standing) like burnished bronze.” At this level, understanding certainly needs to be as refined as feet of burnished brass.

So this description is a metaphor for what happens within our being as we become increasingly conscious and as we are able to work with the Christ Impulse that awakens within us. Through simple descriptions like ‘eyes of flame’ and ‘feet of brass’ we can build powerful images of what to expect on this path of development. We can build on these images if we delve deeper and find out more, for instance, about brass. Brass is an alloy, a combination, of copper and zinc; bronze is an alloy of copper and tin. The addition of zinc or tin hardens the copper while retaining its softness so that it was easily shaped. Each of these metals is formed through smelting at various temperatures. They are refined, usually in clay pots. This could explain why there is mention of breaking earthen pots into pieces at the end of this passage. It isn’t enough to know these facts; we also need to use the knowledge to build vivid pictures that assist in the refining of our own consciousness.

The great lesson spelt out very clearly here is that once our consciousness works through our Higher Self we must not revert to the habitual, familiar behaviour of our lower self. It is very tempting, once we have tasted the freedom and power of our Higher Self to try to drag it down into our old way of life. If we understand that what we experience through our Higher Self can make us feel insecure this knowledge will mean that we will be less inclined to seek refuge in our lower self. At the same time, when we bring the experience of our Higher Self into our lower self we must learn to recognise that our ego is enhanced and often over inflated. It is these changes in our consciousness that we must become more aware of.” by Kristina Kaine
