    I am comforted in knowing that you yourself see the same thing.

    For the 'Raising of the Master' (in much similar fashion to the guy indicated above) found in the Master Mason ceremony:
    The coffin is our physical life/body/existence (Golgotha- place of the skull)
    Being "pulled up" - is the raising of our spirit out of the dross of physical existence (nothing to frown down on though, mind you) to stand firm, unaided.

    The "lion's paw" is Leo, the cardinal sign for Fire. In the Kaballic sense, Fire is the "highest" of the elements, meaning that it is the closest to spirit. Thus, it is a "stronger" grip that the others and able to grasp the spiritual root. The Masonic process is to complete the Pythagorean theorem "anagogically". To go from the first three degrees (Earth, Air, Water), through the strength of the fourth (fired/Lion) reached, the 5th is produced "on its own", when the 3 and 4 are established. The 5th indicates spirit and this is the "resurrection". There was never an actual, physical resurrection indicated in the story of JC, that would be taking to much of a literal reading. In addition, JC is not someone else, it is us and what we can reach and aspire to.

    They could very well be the three wise/Magii that witness the rebirth.

    Questions worth pondering:
    Who are the two figures pointing onward in P's painting?

    Who is the woman among the group of three?

    "I don’t know how much you plan to discuss in the non-Masonic area of your blog, but it seems to me that the missing key is the Christian cross? When turned upside down, a cross can be drawn inside the Square and Compass by connecting the opposite points, thus it is ‘all that is missing’. Would you agree?"

    "Hello Phil,
    Yes it can. You can also creat the Triple Tau of the Holy Royal Arch, and with a Masonic Level on a Worshipful Masters Apron (the tradition rank premitted to experience the Ritual up until around 1840’s), you can forge the Cross of Jerusalem."

    "There are differing opinions as to the true origin of the name "Hollywood." According to the diary of H. J. Whitley, known as the "Father of Hollywood", on his honeymoon in 1886 he stood at the top of the hill looking out over the valley. Along came a Chinese man in a wagon carrying wood. The man got out of the wagon and bowed. The Chinese man was asked what he was doing and replied, "I holly-wood", meaning 'hauling wood.'"

    re d.thomas.. Early Syrian traditions also relate the apostle's full name as Judas Thomas.. thomas being epithet twin of Judas Iscariot..

    check the twin pointers..


    However..

    "Now, since it has been said that you are my twin and true companion, examine yourself…"

    MYSTAGOGY: The Skull of the Holy Apostle Thomas in Patmos

    Selene was always trying to get Artemis to bring the sunken island to the surface and, hence, to life. Selene finally convinced Artemis, who, in turn, elicited her brother Apollo's help, in order to persuade Zeus to allow the island to arise from the sea.



    blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.
