Sacred Geometry is the blueprint of Creation and the genesis of all form. It is an ancient science that explores and explains the energy patterns that create and unify all things and reveals the precise way that the energy of Creation organizes itself. On every scale, every natural pattern of growth or movement conforms inevitably to one or more geometric shapes.
As you enter the world of Sacred Geometry you begin to see as never before the wonderfully patterned beauty of Creation. The molecules of our DNA, the cornea of our eye, snow flakes, pine cones, flower petals, diamond crystals, the branching of trees, a nautilus shell, the star we spin around, the galaxy we spiral within, the air we breathe, and all life forms as we know them emerge out of timeless geometric codes. Viewing and contemplating these codes allow us to gaze directly at the lines on the face of deep wisdom and offers up a glimpse into the inner workings of the Universal Mind and the Universe itself.
The ancients believed that the experience of Sacred Geometry was essential to the education of the soul. They knew that these patterns and codes were symbolic of our own inner realm and the subtle structure of awareness. To them the “sacred” had particular significance involving consciousness and the profound mystery of awareness, the ultimate sacred wonder. Sacred Geometry takes on another whole level of significance when grounded in the experience of self-awareness.
There’s a ‘universal word’ that’s
shared by nearly every language.
Researchers found that saying
“Huh?” when confused is a
common trait of most languages,
even those that evolved
independently of others, because
it is a nonthreatening, natural
reaction that is easily spoken and
understood by all. Source
The best thing about dreams is that fleeting moment, when you are between asleep and awake, when you don’t know the difference between reality and fantasy, when for just that one moment you feel with your entire soul that the dream is reality, and it really happened. ~James Arthur Baldwin
Ulrich Ruosch - Four Elements, “Das Alchemiehandbuch des Appenzeller Wundarztes“, 17th century.
Ulrich Ruosch was a Paracelsian surgeon from Switzerland who produced a beautiful manual which captures the world of 17th-century Alchemy, rife as it is with meaningful connections between the Planets and the Metals and the operations of Cosmic Forces in the sublunary world of the four Elements. Ignis is symbolized by pure Fire, and Aqua by sailing vessel crossing the Sea has been used, with more vessels in the background. Aer is purely symbolized by clouds, but for Terra, a rather charming scene of a lush wooded landscape is used. This is a subtle stylistic reference to the correspondence of the Elements with the Strata of the Universe: the Upper Stratum is Fire (Ignis), the Middle Stratum is Air (Aer), while the Earth (Terra) belongs to the Lower Stratum, as does Water (Aqua).
