The Vans Triple of Surfing is coming to an end. Catch up with Vans Brazil’s Tomas Hermes to see how he spent his time on the North Shore and his five favorite things to do there. He might take the award for being the best at the backyard slack line, and he was also a pretty good sport about trying all the weird fruit we picked up on our trip with Leila Hurst. Don’t forget to tune in to the finals and see who will win the Vans Triple Crown of Surfing over the next two days.
“Christ” is a solar energy, and “mass” is a rite; so, Christmas, is a transformation or a rite in which the solar energy is transformed into life.
The Tree of Life is always studied in Kabbalah. It is represented in the spinal column of every single person. The spinal column is the Tree of Life.
The Tree of Life, the Christmas tree, symbolizes the spinal column. All the lights on the Christmas tree represent the senses of the soul that we need to awaken in order to perceive what Christ consciousness is.
When that light is shining in our spinal column, within the seven churches that are described in the Book of Revelation, and within all the powers of that Tree of Life, then Santa Claus comes and delivers a gift.
That comes from the (symbolic) north then down the chimney (the spinal column), which is our particular north, the chakra Sahasrara, or the church of Laodicea, related to the pineal gland and the sephirah Kether.
This is where “he” enters. This is precisely what is written in the Acts of the Apostles, that when the Apostles were reunited, celebrating it, tongues of fire came hovering above their heads. Those tongues were the fire of the Holy Ghost, or the fire of Santa Claus, which is a force. That was the gift that they received.
This drama of the Cosmic Christ and the way in which we can assimilate that Solar Force is a secret related with the spinal column. Remember that the spinal column has 33 vertebrae. This is why Master Jesus, it is written, lived 33 years. The Masons talk about 33 initiatic degrees. And it is because in order to develop that energy, we have to do it in 33 degrees, but in different octaves, different ways.”
" ….Should you seek might, power, false honor, excess — seek that we would work for you to provide your temporal advantages — we will bring you as close to the throne as you wish, and then turn you over to the consequences of your folly, but our inner sanctuary remains closed to such.
But should you want to learn wisdom — want to learn to make mankind more clever, better, free and happy — then be thrice welcomed by us….. “
- Adam Weishaupt, founder of the Bavarian Illuminati
"an Enlightenment-era secret society founded on May 1, 1776. The society’s goals were to oppose superstition, obscurantism, religious influence over public life and abuses of state power."
