Greetings, blog readers!
How many of you know that on this past Monday, 11/26/2018, the U.S. landed a new robotic explorer on Mars? This one, called InSight, is specifically for probing deep below Mars’s surface to study its geological history and learn more about how Mars was formed.
Here’s a pretty awesome video of the location where InSight landed:
Now…. What’s often the first thing we humans want to look for on a new planet? Life! And what do we look for as an indicator of the potential of that life? Water!
Which is the connecting point for me today… because Monday, the way I do the Essene Gospels, is the day that I honor the Angel of Water in the morning.
I know that water is not thought to be existent on the arid, cold red planet. (Though we do have a current TV show of settling on Mars airing on the National Geographic channel where the scientists who arrive first do find water. And microbes… Exciting!)
Is water really necessary for life? Essene Gospel translator and interpreter, Edmond Szekely, in his book, The Essene Book of Creation tells us that the mention of water in the Essene Gospels refers to the complexity of universal life. Szekely notes that water is not just mentioned as part of creation in our biblical texts, but also in the Zend-Avesta and in the Hymn of Creation in the Rig-Veda. In the latter is specifically mentioned, “Of the time the mighty waters came containing the universal germ.” An oft-used Buddhist image is that of the ebb and flow of water as symbolizing the individuality of humans (the waves) as part of Spirit (the ocean). The waves are always part of the ocean, and the ocean is more than a wave.
In my most recent posts, I referred to Szekely’s interpretation of Light as consciousness. Now we see that Water represents life. Even in our bodies, Life comes from water. The sperm, largely made of liquid, travels through liquid to fertilize an egg, also largely water. The baby grows in the womb in amniotic fluid. And this is true of all mammals – the young grow in sacs of fluid.
It sounds like InSight will be looking more for the consistency of dirt and rocks…. Yet in the TV program, water is discovered deep below the surface of Mars. And if that happens, is there life?
