Dune  

I must not fear.
Fear is the mind-killer.
Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and through me.

Frank Herbert - Book of Dune

In the book "Dune" the author Frank Herbert, describes the rise of the Messiah 8000 years from now. Herbert, who studied among other subjects ecology, psychology and eastern philosophies, created a reliable world that describes in minute detail the rise of "qwitzat haderach" - the messiah (qfitzat haderech is an ancient kabalistic term that describes the ability to be in two places at once). The whole book is interwoven with wisdom that can serve the enlightened reader in his personal growth.
Dune

The process and change that the books' hero, Paul Atreides, goes through is in fact a process of enlightenment and divine consciousness, and the recognition of our higher self that exists within us all.

One of the lines in the book is: "That which submits rules". This short sentence holds the secret of true human enlightenment. All the cosmic forms are creative expressions of one force. All the mystical traditions say that one can experience cosmic unity through various exercises, by which the practitioner gradually eliminates his false identity (self) and his connection to the material world. In the end, the practitioner is able to fully experience the whole cosmos every single moment. When this is achieved the higher self is awakened.


The conscious person understands and experiences cosmic perfection in everything and what results is true awareness of all the processes and occurrences within the universe.  He remains totally uncritical of anything. He who awakens to unified cosmos has powers, vision and wisdom that are far greater than the average person who is still identifying with the illusion and the false "self".


Kwizatz Haderach

The hero of the book, Paul Muad dib serves as an example of a new kind of human being, who is transformed and unites his consciousness with the greater cosmic purpose.
This transformation is achieved when the hero drinks the "Water of life". The author describes the hero as the "Kwizatz Haderach" a man who is able to look beyond the masculine and feminine limitations and aspects of creation. To seek unity with the "One" and to look beyond the process of creation itself to within the great void.
The term "Kwizatz Haderach" was taken from the kabalistic term "qfitzat haderech" - meaning a "short cut" or the ability to be at different places at the same time.

Is Dune a Prophetic Novel?

In depth reading of the book raises the question: is Dune a prophetic novel?
The book was written in the early 1960s. The book is dedicated to: "Those whose actions differ from the realm of ideas to the kingdom of solid reality. To the ecologists of the desert plains, whoever they may be, in each generation, to them I dedicate this experiment in predicting the future with humility and admiration".

At the writing of this book, the two main superpowers of the world were the U.S.S.R and the U.S.A.  Frank Herbert focused on the future and saw the rising power of the Jihad and Islamic extremism taking over the civilized world.  The book is full of Muslim terms. The hero of the book is called the "Mahdi"- the Muslim Messiah.

An interesting similarity to the present time (2004)

The defeated Caesar is called "Shaddam". The world in which the battle takes place is called "Arrakis". The battle is for the control of the "Spice m'lange". Now just change the name "Shaddam" to "Saddam", "Arrakis" to "Iraq" and the "Spice M'lange" to "oil". The most surprising element is a new young Shi'ite leader in Iraq whose followers call the "Mahdi"….

Dune ring engraving - That which submits rules
The Dune ring is engraved with the Hebrew translation of the sentence "He who surrenders rules". In Judaism, there is a story in the ancient Gemmara where the Creator showed Moses at the time he received the Ten Commandments the future time. He showed him a man called Rabbi Akiva who will be given the secret of the "Tagim" (the small lines that appear above the Hebrew letters in the Torah Scrolls).  When Moses saw the modesty of Rabbi Akiva, he told the Creator that he should give the commandments to Rabbi Akiva. The Creator's answer was "keep silent - rise within the thought". The Gemmara explains that the word "keep silent" doesn't mean in ancient Hebrew - "shut up!" rather "cancel yourself". In other words the Creator tells Moses to transcend himself so that he can ascent and understand the Cosmic Thought.

Dune ring elements

The hawk that appears in the center of the Dune ring is the symbol of the House of Atreides, from whom the "Qwitzat Haderach" is derived. The hawk represents the higher self who sees the entire big picture and symbolizes the understanding of the "cosmic thought".

The green emerald stones on the blackened Dune ring's surface, symbolize the black and green flag of the House of Atreides, while the green emerald also symbolizes the heart center and compassion.

The Arabic writing on the Dune ring is a variation of the Arabic nickname of Paul Atreides "lisan il gayeb" meaning "The language of the one who came".

The Hebrew letters style of the engraving "hanichna hoo hasholet" "That which submits rules", were taken from the Dead Sea scrolls.

The meaning of the Hebrew words written on the pendant is "from the waters shall come all life". The design of the Dune pendant is inspired by the water jewelry worn by native people of the desert planet Arrakis.

The Dune pendant is a small vessel sealed with water. I have personally conducted my own experiments based upon the principles of sacred geometry and the Book of "Zohar", where through concentrated meditation I have been able to change the quality, taste and vibration of the water.

The wearer may experience an initial short term reaction to this higher energy vibration until he or she becomes accustomed to wearing the Dune pendant. The pendant conveys water's molecular secret that is common to so many of the world's religious beliefs.
The pendant holds within it the cosmic secret inherent in the triangular molecular composition of water, which is the key to all life in the universe.

Herbert states in his book that water is the key to all life in the cosmos and because of its great value it was worn as a precious jewel by the native people of Dune -The Fremen.
