The Great American Eclipse

The Esoteric Meaning of the Master and Slave Dynamic 

Dane and I have been conversing behind the scenes on a few interesting things.  The post titled New Jerusalem used a picture of a solar eclipse.  Dane had asked if I used the picture intentionally and if I had known an eclipse was coming.  Of course I knew the Great American Eclipse of 2017 was on the horizon and used that as a mental prop and method of stimulation.

As I suggested to Dane, the light and darkness around, and within a total solar eclipse, can be viewed a few different ways.  From an esoteric perspective it can symbolize the expansion of darkness within the light.  This expansion of darkness will grow inside of us and eventually force all the light out, and leave only the empty void of cold darkness.

But we can also view an eclipse as the light escaping the darkness.  As the ring of light breaks forth around the edges of the blackness its radiance becomes known, and the warmth and possibility of its potential rattles the duelling worlds of spirit and matter.

At no other time does the contradiction of light and darkness become more obvious than during the rare periods of total solar eclipses.  The gradual grey transition from one to the other which can be observed throughout the birth and death cycle of our living and sleeping pattern gives way to the stark edges of light and darkness in their full forms.

This projection and externalization of the inner war between spirit and matter is not understood well outside of esoteric thought.  The moon and darkness represents the constraints of the material world and our animal instincts.  The sun represents the freedom of spirit and the potential for enlightenment.  It is the master and slave dynamic with the light (spirit) serving as the master and darkness (animal/matter) serving as the slave.

The master is waiting for the slave, or student, to awaken and begin the process of reconciliation.  The master injected the slave with light and forces the darkness out.  But if the student is not ready the darkness will be stronger and it will push the light out and quiet the inner voice of the master.

The union of spirit and matter, the evolution of both in one unified process, is the great quest of the ages, and represents the student becoming the master and the slave becoming free.

There are powers in the world which do not want this reconciliation and evolution to take place.  This power wishes us to remain as slaves.  This slavery is manifested in the material world through systems of governance and spiritual control, such as organized religion.

There is much to consider on this eve of the Great American Eclipse.  The world is in the middle of a massive transformation, and issues of racism and slavery are once again at the forefront of the American cultural mind.  This is not a coincidence.  There is a different power attempting to offset the darkness and bring true freedom to the enslaved masses.  But it is with sadness that we come to the realization that the student must seek out the master.  Unfortunately the student is being distracted and overwhelmed with the material darkness of an age old script which forever burrows away within the savage mind of the human animal.

The eclipse comes to ground in America at Salem, Oregon.  Will this be the birth of a New Jerusalem, or will it herald a calamitous serious of events which will fragment the reconciliation of spirit and matter for generations to come?  Time, such as it is, will tell.  – JC

  1. Personal request. Make this a FreePOM.

    I read the last time this happened (where it could only be viewed in the US) was in, wait for it…1776.

  2. The eclipse is also a long one, lasting 5 and a half hours for the penumbral and umbrella stages. In the UK, the last total one seen here was in 1999, though only in the SW including Devon and Cornwall. It was partial across the rest of the country. Our previous one occurred at dawn in Feb 1961…..well that was the beginning of a social revolution in both the UK and America.

    Your mention of Salem, reminded me of the witch trials in Massachusetts. I hope your idea of the birth of a New Jeru-salem is realised JC. See you, in the light, on the other side of the darkness!

  3. A to be released Hollywood movie with a timely title, GEOSTORM is being advertised!

    The Tornado in Texas is already rumored to be a handy work of weather modification by somebody. The suspects range from Putin to Shadow Gov. Is this a predictive programming movie?

    Gas prices in the US have already risen. OPEC may also be satisfied as US oil/gas sector may be reduced in productivity which may push OPEC revenue!
