is the mystery, come from the great one. Hear, and Light on thee
|This pendant is one of the
most mysterious and enigmatic pieces I've ever made. Its
simplistic design holds many important key models in the
fields of mathematics and cosmology. It is known as a
Torus Knot and it's the most basic knot which can be made
on the Torus Tube. The Torus Tube is basically a structure
of a donut or a sphere that turns into itself from one
side and comes out the other in a perpetual motion. In a
spiritual aspect, it symbolizes the cosmos, as well as
infinity and it correlates to the sacred structures of the
Seed of Life, the Flower of Life and even the Golden mean
Spiral or the Fibonacci Spiral.
Solving Karmic Problems
Over the years I received many responses, stories, and experiences
from people who purchased this pendant. Many stories revolved
around solving karmic problems, finding miraculous solutions, and
even a few people reported that after they were free from whatever
it was that held them back, the pendant disappeared, literally -
they woke up in the morning and the string or chain were intact
but the pendant was gone. Perhaps it has something to do with the
mysterious way this piece came into existence.
My Personal story with the Gordian Knot
My personal story with this symbol happened in 2001. One of my
clients went through a crisis when her son suddenly passed away. I
went to visit and console her and on my way south I stopped at a
shop to buy some music for the road these were the days before
uploads, downloads, and YouTube. The CD I purchased was "Who's
next" by The Who. In the bag I was carrying was a model of the
triangular Torus Knot or Gordian Knot. I got the idea for the
pendant from a friend of mine who was an acclaimed painter and
gave me a printed drawing of the structure and insisted that I
should make it as a pendant. When I asked him what it meant he
wasn't able to provide any coherent answer...
On the way, It intrigued me, and I found myself contemplating on
the meaning of this strange structure, and I recalled the
story about Alexander the Great and the Gordian knot. The story is
about king Gordias who created a knot and declared that the one
who will be able to untie the knot will conquer all of Asia Minor.
Many came and failed miserably that was until Alexander the
Great arrived, took out his sword and cut it in a swift. This
story indicates that sometimes the best solution is the most
simple one and that the answer lies within us.
On my way south I opened the cover of the CD and inside was a
booklet issued for the 30th anniversary of this record. I opened
the booklet and the first thing that captured my eye was the words
"The Gordian knot". "This is interesting", I thought. I played the
CD and it opened with the electronic loop I knew from the song
"Baba O'riley". I knew this record by heart but this time
something interesting happened. Images started running in my mind
and I found myself experiencing a situation that occurred 30 years
earlier. I saw the composer of this song, the guitar player Pete
Townshend, sitting in front of an electronics device filled with
buttons and plugs. In some way I knew he was working on the
opening tune for the song I was just listening to. The device he
was using was some sort of a primitive synthesizer; he was
inserting numbers and receiving sounds. Eventually, he entered the
date of birth and death of a character knows as "Meher Baba" and
the primitive synthesizer "emitted" a tune. Although I
didn't know who this character was more and more "data" appeared.
First I thought of Persia and then of India, only to discover
later on that he was born to a Persian family in India. This
character that came out of those programmed tunes just made me
laugh. I started laughing happily with no apparent reason.
The next morning I went to a store of another client. On one of
the displays in the shop was a magazine and inside was an article
with the title "stories of Meher Baba". The story was about
Buddha and his disciple Ananda, who asked Buddha to show him what
"Maya"-the "great illusion" was.In the Story Buddha shows his
disciple how his whole life and everything he experiences,
including time itself, are a total illusion. Meher Baba claimed
that he was the Avatar of the age. He referred to himself as "THE
COSMIC JOKE" which is actually the way that all of us, being
unaware of our true nature experience life in a state of
separation from our one divine source. one of his most memorable
phrases is "Don't worry, be happy". and years later I discovered
that The entire album of "THE WHO" that was actually part of a
project Pete Townshend was working on was inspired by the British
17th-century composer, Henry Purcell which one of his most famous
compositions is called "The Gordian Knot Untied".....
Here is a part of the Emerald tablet of Thoth that speaks about
the idea of ONE and the three:
Three is the mystery, come from the great one.
Hear, and Light on thee will dawn.
In the primeval, dwell three unities.
Other than these, none can exist.
These are the equilibrium, source of creation,
one God, one Truth, one point of freedom.
Three come forth from the three of the balance,
all life, all good, and all power.
Three are the qualities of God in his Light-home:
Infinite power, Infinite Wisdom, Infinite Love.
Three are the powers given to the Masters,
To transmute evil, assist good, use discrimination.
Three are the things inevitable for God to perform:
Manifest power, wisdom and love.
Three are the powers creating all things:
Divine Love possessed of perfect knowledge,
Divine Wisdom knowing all possible means,
Divine Power possessed by the joint will of
Divine Love and Wisdom.
Three are the circles (states) of existence:
The circle of Light where dwells nothing but God,
and only God can traverse it;
the circle of Chaos where all things
by nature arise from death;
the Circle of awareness where
all things spring from life.
All things animate are of three states of existence:
chaos or death, liberty in humanity and felicity of Heaven.
Three necessities control all things:
beginning in the Great Deep, the circle of chaos, plenitude in
Three are the paths of the Soul:
Man, Liberty, and Light.
Three are the hindrances:
lack of endeavor to obtain knowledge;
non-attachment to god; attachment to evil.
In man, the three are manifest.
Three are the Kings of power within.
Three are the chambers of the mysteries,
found yet not found in the body of man.
