The Seed of Life It is human nature for us to put some stamp on our existence: to make some difference, becoming important; to be remembered after we are dead, making insightful discoveries, and becoming and doing something that we and others are proud of. Otherwise, we have this feeling that our life has been wasted or it is only about my own self-gratifications. This is probably one of the driving forces to join organisations, clubs, churches, temples, and groups; and to follow teams, sports, and famous individuals.
The greatest stamp one can place on oneself is the connection to life, to living. This is the seed of life. This seed of life is a continuous process, as continuous as breathing in and out air; as continuous as the beating of the heart and the blood flowing throughout our entire body. This seed of life acknowledges our life and not only places a stamp of approval on oneself but also transforms our death to a life of continuous living: always breathing in fresh air, always tasting the energy of nature, and for every second, revitalises our blood, bones, and eyes. So, where is this seed of life to be experienced? Simply.
A simple, genuine and honest smile. A smile of laughter. That is the seed. That is the seed of life. A genuine, sincere smile. A smile that is honest. A smile that is open to the moment. A smile is shared to oneself and to the experience. A smile is a handshake, a hug to another. A smile is reflected as a miror to another. Each smile is a handshake, the holding of hands with the world, with the other millions of humans who smile. Some people can not smile in honesty or can not have a smile that is genuine. The people who can smile in laughter, can not find the emotions to hurt another. A person who is smiling is not in pain, not in sorrow, and not in depression. A genuine smile is the seed of a beautiful life. If we can end each conversation, each interaction with each other with a genuine smile, then we have created a different world. I rather be in a world that at the end of each conversation and at the end of each interaction with another, we end it with both of us having this genuine smile. That is the seed of a new life. That is the seed for our existence. A simple, genuine smile of laughter.
Earlier in May 2015 media outlets reported that a new international flag had been created for Planet Earth. I’d like to think that the sentiments that I have shared above reflects this. However, on reflection, this design is a little deeper. The Earth flag include the concept of political, spiritual and environmental aspects of the planet.
The designer of this flag that has been proposed is by OSKAR PERNEFELDT which is part of a graduation project at Beckmans College of Design (Stockholm, Sweden).
According to the website flagofplanetearth.com Current expeditions in outer space use different national flags depending on which country is funding the voyage. The space travelers, however, are more than just representatives of their own countries. Collectively these agencies represent planet Earth. Therefore, the PURPOSE OF THE FLAG
1. To be used while representing planet Earth.
2. To remind the people of Earth that we share this planet, no matter of national boundaries. That we should take care of each other and the planet we live on. Both are beautiful sentiments.
The website also states that the scientific study of flags is called vexillology, and the practice of designing flags is called vexillography. Both of these are an outcome of heraldry. In these practices there are different unofficial design rules/costumes, about colours, placement, proportions, typography, and aestethics in general and overall this proposal is accurate according to the regulations regarding flags.
SYMBOLIC EXPLANATION Centered in the flag, seven rings form a flower – a symbol of the life on Earth. The rings are linked to each other, which represents how everything on our planet, directly or indirectly, are linked. The blue field represents water which is essential for life – also as the oceans cover most of our planet’s surface. The flower’s outer rings form a circle which could be seen as a symbol of Earth as a planet and the blue surface could represent the universe. HERALDIC BLAZON Centered on an azure field, seven circles of silver interlaced, creating a flower.
Media outlets have been given the following photographs to advertise this.
NOW WHY would an international space agency want to put a flag that is going to be used for exploration in space at Antarctica?
Pledging allegiance to the international flag of our planet could become a worldwide practice with this exciting design of a flag for Earth.
Initially, Pernefeldt thought the seven circles could represent the planet’s seven continents, but later opted against that metaphor, he told Jay Cassano of Co.Exist. Earth’s geology could change with climate or geoengineering. Again., rather an unusual statement to make.
In actual fact., this design is NOT the flower of life as many of the media outlets have reported., it is the SEED OF LIFE., the seed becomes before the flower, or could this be an analogy like the chicken and the egg.
The “Seed of Life” is formed from seven circles being placed with sixfold symmetry, forming a pattern of circles and lenses, which acts as a basic component of the Flower of Life’s design.
The Seed of Life, then transforms by adding more…
If you look carefully at the seed, and the pattern many other significant patterns are hidden. The Seed of Life represents the seven stages, steps, or days of creation. The creation of a vibrating pattern of space (electromagnetic radiation) is the actual process of creation itself which otherwise is symbolised by various concepts such as “days of creation” to make something otherwise almost impossible to explain, much easier to handle.
Therefore the seven days of creation in which the Judeo-Christian God created life;
The Seed of Life Is the Symbol of Creation and Fertility
In the ongoing process to replicate the spheres and form more Vesica Pisces, multiple forms of creation can be seen emanating from the endless cascade (reproduction) of further geometrical patterns.
The Seed of Life is the Blue Print of the Universe
The Seed of Life is a primary building block of the Flower of Life, from which comes forth the Fruit of Life. Another blueprint for everything, the Fruit of Life creates all elements, molecules, organisms, and even everything else in the universe. In other words, everything that abides in reality comes from the form of the Seed of Life.
The Seed of Life Can Be Found in all Major Religions and Most Ancient Cultures.
These 7 circles mirror our chakras, the colours of the rainbow and even musical scales! It forms a foundation upon which the infinite, fractal nature of life can be understood.
But in order to unlock the deeper information contained within the Seed of Life, one must begin by connecting the dots….. (LITERALLY & symbolically).
A French Cabalistic gathering in the 13th Century managed to discover that the complete list of Hebrew letters in its proper sequence could be found within the Seed of LIfe. In 13th Century France, a religious sage, Rashi, wrote down his teachings and ideas on the Old Testament. His style of writing closely matched the kind of alphabet the French Cabalists found within the Seed of Life.
The Seed of Life shows up throughout many Christian Churches, Synagogues, Kabbalah texts, ancient temples and archeological sites, such as the Osirian temple in Abydos, Egypt. The Seed of Life seems to be found in all of the main religions, and used by the occultists and the mystics alike. All manner of interpretations and meanings can be given to it, but the actual symbol itself remains as pure or impure as the meaning ascribed to it.
Seeds are magic, potent vessels of nature. They hold entire intelligent blueprints for life. They can lie dormant for ages before the conditions are ripe for them to burst into life. As a beautiful metaphor for consciousness, a seed represents the divine design within all things.
Beginning & completion, wholeness, diversity, fertility/regeneration, strength and balance.
From the ‘seed of life’ also evolves The Metatron Cube (from Greek Meta+Tron meaning Beyond+Matrix.). Metatron is an angel in Judaism, some branches of Christianity and Islamic tradition Witchcraft. However, there are no references to him in the Jewish Tanakh (Old Testament), the Christian Scriptures (New Testament) or any Islamic source.
I believe that this is an activation code, the ancients used this symbol – they knew everything, even going back some five hundred years ago this symbolism was embroidered into Elizabeth I clothing.
As indicated above, the Star of David is also found within the seed of life. The symbol of intertwined equilateral triangles is a common one in the Middle East and North Africa, and is thought to bring good luck. It appears occasionally in early Jewish artwork, but never as an exclusively Jewish symbol. The nearest thing to an “official” Jewish symbol at the time was the menorah.
I just hope ….. that if “Aliens” do see this flag, that they will see that … this flag really does represent the divine feminine, Once, women were honored as strong, beautiful, creative, sensual beings. In those ancient times, we humans were keenly attuned to the heartbeat of the planet. Life was lived on the edge. Our survival as a species depended on our ability to live in harmony with the world. The feminine aspect of life was necessary for our very survival, and the sacred feminine was honoured by ancient around the world as bringer of life, growth, decline, death and rebirth. Woman was life itself. The power of women in those ancient times was undeniable — without women, we humans would not be here now.
The world has changed. We have grown apart from the primal rhythms native to us and we have abandoned our old ways to explore human life through a masculine-centric lens of action and movement. Gifts inherent to women were lost or set aside. Gifts of the masculine — focus, action, physical strength — have been revered and made central. The balance has shifted. I just hope., that the “Aliens” will see this….. really I wish humankind would see this.
