Christ / Messiah, the Anointed One: the Chosen One

"The Anointed One" is the translation of "Christ" and "Messiah". This title is due to the good King who reigns in the power of love and in authority brings the land to flourish again.

Both words, "Christ" (from Greek CHRISTOS) and "Messiah" (from Hebrew MOSHIACH) mean "the anointed one".

The title "Christ" and "Messiah" for the chosen King

"The Anointed One" is the chosen one who comes in the spirit of love to give himself to the feminine. 

To the great feminine belong: the women, the people, the earth ...

Receiving and living reality giving birth to matter

The great feminine includes:

  • The woman, all women: They can take up seed and give birth to new life.
  • The human body: It receives impulses from the consciousness ("male") and translates them into words, deeds and new reality.
  • The collective (group, people, the whole of humanity): It reacts to impulses (for example in the form of information such as news) with moods and actions. It also takes up the instructions of the ruler and shapes new reality according to them (carries out instructions, such as building roads).
  • The earth: It can take up seeds and give growth. In addition, it reacts likewise to most different impulses ("spirit"), for example from the cosmos (like solar activity) or to human behavior with global phenomena like climate warming or volcanism and cooling. (Thereby the "cosmos" means in the traditions more than the universe. To it the element of the fire is ascribed and therefore also divine-spiritual and initiating strength, see. The dynamics of the elements.)
  • Thewhole of creation: it is given over to transience and thus in the "underworld" (s. The Great Feminine in the Underworld).

 [S. Feminine wholeness, living matter - potential, reality and destiny.]

The feminine as living matter, which can absorb seeds or impulses and give birth to new reality, belongs by definition to the unconscious (s. The conscious and the unconscious).

As the truly loving One, the Anointed One never imposes himself, but sows the seed of the Word only where it is expected and accepted. In doing so, he pays attention to the anointing, for it is the sign of readiness to receive him as the "good King" and gives him the authority to initiate new reality in living matter.

[S. The Anointing - Authority over Matter.]

Authorisation of the Anointed One: Power of Attorney

The feminine responds to the love and devotion of the chosen one with the anointing. It signifies that the anointed one is longed for and welcome to occupy his "promised land" and thus provides him with smooth access to the common sanctuary.
He alone has the authorisation to sow his seed in it, thus providing the initial spark for the new that is to arise.

[S. The Shrine 3-in-1 as a Symbol of Wholeness and The Feminine Womb as the Grail.]

The response of the feminine: new reality

The receiving feminine transforms the creative impulse trustingly and ready to serve into new, living reality.
Thus, a tiny sperm enters the female egg (which in turn selects one from among the pending sperm) and completes the genetic information for a child. In the larger context, programs and instructions go out from the ruler to the people for the construction of infrastructure and for common projects. On a spiritual level, words of love and truth form the basis of a new, positive existence.

Love as legitimacy

Love is indispensable for the generation of new reality, because it connects the ultimate opposites masculine and feminine so that the seed of the "Word" can enter matter. As the feminine-receiving side, it takes up the impulse of consciousness and gives it concrete, living form.

[S. Male and Female and the Creation of New Reality.]

Male and female and the new reality 

As in the small, so in the large ...

It is a "secret" that the same principles for the emergence of new reality apply in the large context as in the small, in the production of a child.

The sexual act as a model for the larger context

Thus the sexual act also serves as a model for the emergence of new living reality in the collective.
The principle is always the same: the loving consciousness (spirit, male) initiates the emergence of the new in living matter (female).

[S. Father and Mother, Spirit and Matter and The Conscious and the Unconscious].

Male and female united

In this way, the male-initiating and the female-shaping sides work together in harmony.

The feminine side: the anointing (symbol for the vaginal fluid of the woman)

On the feminine side, the anointing represents readiness. Just as the vaginal fluid of the woman is the sign to her lover that she is ready to receive him, so the anointing of the chosen king/priest is the sign of his acceptance by the collective.
For this reason, kings or priests have always been anointed by putting oil on their heads in the presence of the people or their representatives to legitimise them.

The masculine side: the anointed limb (the "son" for the power and potency of the Father).

On the male side, the impulse enters into living matter by means of the "anointed" member (phallus), which is represented by the chosen one who is called to rule. (The head of the phallus symbolises in logical consequence the glans of the penis, while the crown as a ring symbolises the entrance into matter, the penetration; see The Insignia of Power).

To go one step further, therefore, the "SON" symbolises at the same time the member of the (future) father, because in him is the potency to beget a son again.

[S. Male Wholeness 3-in-1, Father - Son - Spirit.]

In the collective context, as already mentioned, the Anointed One corresponds to that human member who is authorised to initiate new realities of love in living matter.

Death and resurrection of power (potency)

Because the "SON" is also a symbol for the male member and the creative potency of the "FATHER", it is very natural and also comprehensible with ease that "the Son", that is the power of the "anointed member", "dies" after the sowing of the seed (of the Word).
And just as the potency died after "it" is accomplished, it will also rise again ("resurrect") in the power of love.

The dying of the seed in union and the growth of the new

And finally, the seed must also "die". For it is precisely by dissolving into matter and merging with it into one that the new comes into being, which will bear much fruit.

[On this in the Bible Gospel of John 12:24 and Paul in his letter to the Corinthians: 1 Cor 15:35 ff. (Bible Server)]

Two Sons of the Father: Christ and the Anti-Christ

The SON as animus (drive and impulse)

The FATHER as the masculine side of the creative forces is the ARCHETYPE for the loving consciousness. TheSON as archetype represents the power and creative potency of the FATHER and thus also the drive and impulse in matter(animus).

Two "sons" - Christ and the Anti-Christ

Thus - depending on the type of drive - we can speak of two very different, even "opposing sons".
The "good son" and drive out of love obeys the Father out of love and trust and gives himself completely to life according to his will by paying attention to the "anointing". The other, on the other hand, does what he wants, cannot wait, cannot be patient, but invades uninvited to take for himself. He symbolises the unbridled male drive.

This parable has been handed down by Jesus about the two different "SONS":

The two sons of the father [1]

A man had two sons. He asked the first, "My son, work in our vineyard today!" - "I don't want to!" he replied. Later he was sorry and went to work after all.
The father also asked the second son to work in the vineyard. "Yes, sir," he replied. But he did not go.
Which of the two sons did what the father wanted?

Drive or abstinence?

The "good son" thus corresponds to the drive that the father has under control. This is shown by the fact that he is also willing to do the (necessary relationship) work before he can enjoy. In contrast, the other "son" symbolises the uncircumcised drive that does not want to surrender, but only to take ("I want it all, and I want it now!").

In the collective context

In the larger context, the drive out of lovecorresponds to the "obedient son" of the Father, Christ. The drive out of egoistic lust and the desire for power is symbolised by the "disobedient son" (anti-Christ, pain body or "devil"; more on this below).

The two "sons" and the animus as drive in the first human traditions

These two sons are already mentioned in the Sumerian tradition (Isimud and Dumuzi) as well as in the Babylonian tradition (Gilgamesh and Enkidu). Later they also found their way into the Judeo-Christian traditions.

In the Gilgamesh epic, the god Shamash is also an animus figure, in both forms. At first he appears as a "wild bull or sky bull", symbolising the unbridled drive, later he is the hero or ferryman who can bring the king across the waters of death.

About the two "SÖHNEN" in detail:

The Anti-anointed One or Anti-Christ as the Reverted Son

The "perverse son", who acts out of impulse instead of according to the will of the father, does not care about the anointing, but only seeks his own pleasure gain and. He belongs to that spirit which takes life and vitality from others (see black magic.).

Example: Fairy tale Aladdin and the magic lamp

The young, still innocent Aladdin receives instructions from the wizard from Africa (black magician) to penetrate directly into the centre of the cave of wonders, take the lamp, extinguish it and pour away its oil ...

Aladdin and the Black Magician ... More:

"... then all the treasures are yours!"

This penetration "into the middle" without "touching" anything is a figurative instruction to rape. For the oil that is poured away symbolises the anointing of the woman, which is deliberately passed over, and the extinguished light symbolises love. By taking the empty lamp instead, the young man is supposed to seize the woman's love. This process thus includes traumatisation of the woman and reaming, which leads to the "genie" appearing ready to serve, to fulfil every wish.

In the fairy tale, however, it does not happen according to the will of the magician, because the young man has no evil intention, but simply does not know what he is doing. After a lot of back and forth, the couple overcomes the 40 factors of the negative couple dynamic and finally finds their way to love.

[S. Aladdin and the Magic Lamp.]

Stormy masculinity and the god of air

The anti-anointed is the rapist and oppressor who wants to consume goods (matter) and women and not surrender. He is in the grip of the ego, which as a dark shadow ruler subjugates people through the urges. This spirit of power is often symbolised in the traditions by the god of air, who represents stormy and conquering masculinity.

[S. The Negative Drive (Animus) as Devil or Body of Pain and The God of Air ]

Oppression out of desire and the waters of death

In the Babylonian Gilgamesh epic, the king's confrontation with his "animal" friend Enkidu is described. (En-Ki-Dum = God-Earth-Son. The son of the god of the earth is man in a formerly animal and libidinal body).
Only after the latter has died is the despotic ruler Gilgamesh willing to embark on the hero's journey to find eternal life. To do so, he must, among other things, overcome his desire, which is symbolised by the "water of death". In the end, he becomes a good king.

The image of the Father in the heart

The Anointed One - Messiah / Christ as the "Son of Life

The good and obedient son acts according to the will of the loving Father and gives his life for the life of others. In this way he is ready to enter into a committed relationship.

In the Sumerian tradition he is called Dumuzi. This means "son of life" (Dum-Zi), whereas "the wicked son" is called Isimud (from Zi-Mud; in reversal of the syllables, see notes on the Sumerian language).

Water of life and the anointing

The anointed respects higher orders that are expressions of the FATHER and rooted in love. He has integrated his soul and love and lives in relationships. Figuratively speaking, he thus cultivates his "vineyard" (because wine is the symbol for the purified soul, see bread and wine).

He can also be patient and wait for the answer of his love, the anointing. Another word for this is the "water of life". (Water is the element soul, feminine, see water - feminine and also water of death and water of life).

Jesus taught:
He who believes in me, as the Scripture has said, out of his body will flow rivers of living water.[2]

The Anointed and the Anointing

The Anointed One as Redeemer of Creation

Jesus Christ - Anointed Saviour

The name Jesus is the Greek version of the Hebrew Jehoshua, which can be translated as "God saves". Christ, as mentioned, means "the anointed one".

The Jewish scholar Jehoshua-Jesus was ascribed titles and functions in Christianity that correspond to the Messiah, the expected redeemer of the Jewish people.

Creation in the Underworld

Suffering, illness and death

The great feminine, life itself, lies outside human consciousness and is bound up in natural laws. The life that is "submerged" in matter and in the unconscious is already represented in the first traditions by the underworld.

 [S. The Great Feminine in the Underworld and The Sumerian Creation Account. )

As the realm of shadows and death, it is an image of the fact that all of creation is at the mercy of suffering, negativity, transience and death and must be saved or "redeemed" from them.

The redemption of the enslaved creation

Power of attorney over matter

In the collective context, that human member who bears the title "the Anointed One" has the calling, power and authority to solve this collective problem of creation.
He is the beloved and chosen one of the great Mother Godhead (of life in matter) who accepts his loving devotion and operates it through unlimited authority. Thus, at his word, she causes signs and wonders such as healings and raising of the dead to take place.

Devotion until death

For out of love he gives himself completely, identifying himself with the life and suffering of the enslaved creation even unto death. His path leads him all the way in - deep into the darkest and deepest existence of the unconscious, which he occupies and wins.

In dying he unites himself with the great feminine, life itself, and sows the seed of the Word of the Father's love into living matter.
Thus he calls into being the new creation of love:

Therefore it is said: Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall enlighten thee. [3]

    1. Thank you. I am also fascinated. The deeper you get to the bottom of the traditions, the clearer the connections become. They then simply stand in space. He who has ears to hear, let him hear. 🙂
