Dune

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 others 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: "he who surrenders rules" - This short sentence holds the secret of true human enlightenment. All the cosmic forms are in fact a creative expression 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, until finally 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 results true awareness of all the processes and occurrences within the universe and 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".

Dune 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 drink 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/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 "qfitzat haderech"-meaning a "short cut" – 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, 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 (2004) 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”. The most surprising element is a new young Shi’ite leader in Iraq whose followers call him the “Mahdi”….

Dune ring engraving – "He who surrenders rules"

He who surrenders rules - judaism

In Judaism there is a story in the ancient Gemmara wherein the Creator showed Moses at the time he received the Ten Commandments the future time when a man called Rabbi Akiva 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 Gemarra explains it this way - 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, symbolizes 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 Dune ring is a variation of the Arabic nickname of Pual Atreides "lisan il gayeb" meaning "The language of the one who came".

The Hebrew letters of the "hanichna hoo hasholet" "he who surrenders 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 principals of sacred geometry and the Book of “Zohar” where through concentrated meditation I have been able to change the quality, taste and vibration of water.

The wearer may experience an initial short term reaction to this higher energy vibration until he/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. This molecular trinity represents the three creative cosmic forces and the past present and future (see Gordian knot, Mobius ring and Enneagram pendant).
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.
