The story begins with a person who is an orphan; or someone who feels like an orphan, alone, separate, different, and misunderstood. This character has questions about their circumstance (for example:”Why did my parents die?”, “Why doesn’t anyone like me?”, Why am I always in trouble?”, “What will I do with my life?”, etc.). These questions set off the journey.

El Juício Final, Louis Cattiaux

“The extreme humiliation of  death is the compulsory entry to the splendour of heavenly life, for earthly  separation is the beginning of heaven manifested.”  -
Louis Cattiaux
______________________________________

: Cattiaux has made this painting using a particular iconography, allowing us to understand the mistery of the spiritual body:
In the middle of the night, illuminated by a nocturnal sun on which lies the celestial mother and after a mountain range which separates the scene from the profane world, a section of earth is illuminated by the miraculous event of the “tree man” breaking off his tombstone and growing towards the sun of midnight; they are made of the same essence, of the sun he has born and to the sun he shall return.
The “tree man” is “life” hapening again. The new man germinates as a tree.
It should be given attention as well to the texture of the canvas, the branches or the fingers of the resurected are painted in such a way that demonstrates a living being emerging towards the light coming along with two flowers, a red one and a blue one, whom germinate between the dead cross; one represents severity and another represents mercy.
In the background, pointing the vanishing point of the canvas, the morning star “closes” the cosmic cycle with the sun and the moon on that sacred night.
This painting of Louis Cattiaux shows us, through the tradtional iconography, the truth that arises from the dark earth. The hermetic philosophy teaches the same way that the truth is not only found on heaven but it is also hidden within the earth.


What is the Cross of Jesus?

What is the cross of Jesus for the person who wants to go the path of the mysteries? If this question were put to various candidates, would the answer be the same? Would they testify of a clear insight experienced from within? There are reasons to doubt this. Jesus Christ often put such questions to his students and the answers showed how much their insight was broken and divided.

When one has difficulties with another person, one sighs, “What a cross I have to bear,” and tears flow in self-pity. When the passionate urges of the ego are thwarted in some way or another, one mystifies one’s experiences as a way of the cross.

Others spread their arms and say, “Look at me, I am the cross and I will propel this cross to victory. I have the power to do so, for aren’t there latent within me the seven potentialities, the seven power centers, the seven endocrine glands? See, I put them around the heart of the cross like seven roses and I will make them flower and give off fragrance like precious nard, and thus I will celebrate my resurrection. Brothers and sisters, do as I do—may the roses flower on your cross.”

Then there are those who tell how Jesus Christ, by his blood sacrifice for world and humankind, purified and sanctified the sphere of the planetary cosmos, and how we can now ascend the path upward because of this process of salvation.

This view is close to that of our orthodox brothers and sisters, who adapt their lives to the belief that Jesus Christ has delivered us from our sins and has paid for them, that he has arranged an eternal bliss for us and that we can entrust ourselves completely to his heart of love. The orthodox brother or sister sticks to their church or their Bible, and the esoteric brother or sister to their spiritual school, their sense centers, and their hormone producing organs.

The cross is understood in many ways—romantically, symbolically, esoterically, and literally. In accordance with your inclinations you seek contact, during the years, with certain aspects in order to drug yourself, and so your life passes away to end as it began.

Therefore, it is not without sense to ask: What is the cross of Jesus for a student of the mysteries? Something essential must exist in the multiplicity of aspects of the cross. There must be an essence, a certainty. Of what use is the edifying, the mystical, the romantic, the speculative? It satisfies for a moment, it gives a brief stimulus, a mood, and that is all.

We need something else in a raging, desperate world. You should no longer drug yourself with moods; that is an abuse of civilization. It is the whitewashing of a grave full of lies and corruption.

The candidate must grasp a reality and live in this reality from day to day. Then you will surmount the moods and speculations. Then the facts of salvation will become focal points in your life and will no longer be moments of mystical climax to which you exalt meditatively.

When you take the Bible to read about Good Friday and the meaning of the events on Golgotha, you do not yet testify from your own being. You do not allow the Bible to speak from your heart’s blood, but view it with an esoteric magnifying glass. You want to rob the Universal Doctrine of the secret of life. If it is asked, “What is the cross of Jesus to you?”, it can be discerned clearly from your answer whether you speak from an inner possession or whether you are repeating the words of the Bible with an idea distilled from it.

Those who possess the inner treasure understand one another and know themselves to be participants in the great brotherhood of humankind that is not of this world. They experience Good Friday in a daily rendering of service, and the events of Golgotha as an inner process. This is what needs to be discussed, not with the intention of enlarging your wealth of ideas, for you are not in need of that, but if possible, to make you conscious of yourself.

It can happen that one word can open a door for your consciousness and cause you to see and to recognize. This is the purpose, and to everyone who can understand these words only as another idea, another view, the advice is given—free yourself of it, because for you it is useless, just ballast.

The other Vegvísir…

If a manuscript source is given for the Vegvísir symbol it is usually given as coming from the Huld manuscript of 1860. Little known is that there is another source that is actually more credible than Huld. The above version is also from the 1860s, but unlike Huld is supported by other details and subsequent records.
