"From the waters shall come all life
This "Eco-Jewel" pendant revolves around the aspect of water as the source of life on our planet .Water nowadays is a major global environmental issue and also a source of territorial dispute due to the growing population.
The design of this pendant was inspired by the book “Dune” by Frank Herbert. The meaning of the Hebrew words written on the pendant is “from the waters shall come all life”. The design of this pendant is inspired by the water jewelry worn by native people of the desert planet Arrakis. The pendant is a small vessel sealed with water.Herbert added an ecological theme to all of his books describing the eco-system and the universe as a living entity with a purpose.Many cultures believe in the healing powers of water.You the wearer can use the pendant according to your own beliefs and connect in your prayers or meditations to "the source of life" and "charge" it with your own wishes or purposes for yourself or for your loved ones.
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 according to the human belief the key to all life in the universe. This molecular trinity represents the three creative cosmic forces and the past present and future. Herbert states in his book that water is the key to all life in the cosmos and because of it’s great value it was worn as a precious jewel by the native people of Dune –The Fremen. 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, who ever 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 . Terms such as the Islamic Holy war/Jihad or the rise of Islamic fundamentalism were Seemed totally unfeasible. However 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 and infect the hero of the book is called the “Mahdi”- The Muslim Messiah. The book’s similarity to the present time (the beginning of the 21st century) is startling. 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 mélange”. Now just change the name “Shaddam “ to “Saddam” ,”Arrakis “ to “Iraq” and the “Spice Mélange” to “oil” and the most surprising element is a new young Shi’ite leader in Iraq whose followers call him the “Mahdi”…. 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 drink the “Water of life”.
The author describes the hero as the “ Qwitzat haderach" a man who is able to look beyond the masculine and feminine limitations/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 kabbalistic term "Kfitzat Haderech"-meaning a "short cut" –the ability to be at different places at the same time.
