FAQ - under this heading you will find short answers to big questions, which also lead to the corresponding content in the various articles of GOLDSPUR.


What distinguishes humans from animals?


To bring it to a short denominator: What distinguishes man from the animal is consciousness. It is what makes man "divine" or "equal to God".

Consciousness is the unique ability of human beings to look at themselves as if "from the outside", to reflect and instruct themselves and thus to stand creatively (creatively) in their own lives and to shape them.

[Human consciousness.

Automatic functions and the animal in man

Humans are stuck in a formerly "animal" body that is controlled "automatically" over long distances. (For example, you don't have to think about which nerve tracts and muscles have to be activated so that you can lift a glass from the table and guide it to your mouth. Or if a branch comes dangerously close to the eye during a walk in the woods, the eye has already closed for protection before one has even consciously perceived the branch).

The evolution from unconscious to conscious

[S. Life and the snake: ascent and descent..]

Animals; unconscious life

In contrast to humans, plants and animals still have unconscious, physical-material life. Self-preservation and species preservation are laid out in them as "programs". Higher developed animals, however, also have a soul. This means that they are capable of learning and, in addition, can show feelings such as joy or anger or even shame.

Man: from unconscious to conscious life

Growing up, man first develops his soul existence before he learns to exercise control over both his body (drives, emotions) and his soul (will, mind, feelings) by means of his consciousness. (As long as he cannot do this, that is, as long as he is in the grip of his urges or, even worse, of the ego, he is not much better than an animal).

[S. Man 3-in-1, body, soul and spirit and What is the soul and where in the body is it located?.]

Man and his drive

As long as man is in the grip of his instincts, he does not live consciously, then it simply goes off with him. Thus, the animal instinct of preservation of the species has developed into the sexual instinct and the instinct of self-preservation has developed with the help of consciousness into the Egoperverted to the identity of power. So this now pushes the own (power) interests with cunning strategy without consideration of loss.

[S. The 3rd Eye and Serpent's Tongue | The account of the Fall of Man and the mystery of the serpent and The dragon, the ancient serpent and its overcoming.].

The ego, the old tyrant

The ego is boundlessly greedy and phobically suspicious, is the animal in man that sits on the throne. In traditions, it is symbolized by the dark shadow ruler who enslaves man. (For example, in The Lord of the Rings, see also. The negative animus as devil or beast).

The mythological goal for man and the forces of wisdom

The mythological goal for man, however, is that he "like God" creatively shapes his life as well as his resources. Thus already the Sumerian tradition contains a long list of divine creative abilities, the so-called ME (powers of wisdom)which are given to the people.

The human consciousness and the meta-level, level of the mind

Man can get an overview of his life and his resources by going in his mind as if outside himself, to a so-called "META LEVEL". From here he can look at himself in his mental imagination like a neutral observer from the outside. 

In doing so, he perceives himself in his environment, thinks about what and how he could change circumstances and things in order to influence the situation according to his ideas. According to the knowledge gained, he can instruct himself in a next step, i.e. give impulses to his body and also to his feelings (e.g. "keep calm"!) and thus direct his behavior according to his will.

In this way he exercises kingship or "reign of God" in his own life. in his own life. This is the high goal for man.

1. ARCHETYPES: GOD / THE GODS (see also under CHRIST and SPIRIT):
Who or what is GOD?
  • God is spirit. Spirit is the opposite of matter. The spiritual cannot be grasped, grasped, held with hands. It cannot be counted, measured, weighed. It can only be perceived with faith.
  • "God" is what man worships: What is most important to him in life, that is his god. In this respect, there are many gods: magic, money, sex, consumption, power....
  • God is good. God is the good that man encounters in life.
    (The word "GOD" is related to Germanic "GUT"; English: God, good; Swedish: Gud, god, gott; Dutch: God, goed.)
  • God is one - one - unity at the highest level: He is whole, wholeness - salvation - holiness. God is overcoming all separation and perfect reconciliation.
  • God is wholeness, 3-in-1 (s. God, wholeness, 3-in-1, male and female).
  • God is love: Love is the strongest force in the universe. It alone has the capacity to unite the most extreme opposites. From the union of the opposing principles male and female, spirit and matter, new life arises.

What is the FEMALE side of God?

The feminine side of God is life itself and living matter. The mystery of life arises from the union of masculine (creative spirit) and feminine (living, receiving matter, as potential and reality, "waves" in the sea of all possibilities and quanta). The word "matter" comes from the Latin mater, meaning "mother". Just as male wholeness contains three aspects (son, father, grandfather/spirit/wisdom), female wholeness also contains three aspects: Daughter (virgin, potential), Mother (reality) and Great Mother (power, forces of nature, destiny). This also describes the female divinity (s. Feminine Wholeness 3-in-1).

What is the meaning of the VIRGIN?

Virgo stands as a symbol for the miracle-working power of pure love and for potential.

  1. The potential can be anything, but is nothing concrete. Like a virgin becoming the mother of a child with brown, green or blue eyes, depending on the seed that fertilises it. In the terminology of quantum physics, potential corresponds to the "sea of all possibilities". Quanta that are not in use "swim" as "waves" in a "sea" of virtual energy and potential information. If they are hit by consciousness (spirit, information, "seeds"), they switch to reality.
  2. As pure love, Virgo corresponds to the ether, the all-connecting, invisible divine element that surrounds and connects everything. Love is the force that transcends the boundaries of space and time, for it lasts forever. It alone can unite the ultimate opposites and thus bring the impulse of spirit into living matter. New reality arises from the unity of spirit and matter.

The new reality is symbolised by the child that is born.

[S. Virgo - Miracle working love and potential and The creation of new reality - fruit of wholeness.]

What is the meaning of "virgin birth"?

The Church has established the dogma of the "virgin birth" in which one must "believe" to be a good Christian.
To move forward with this theme, one can ask the provocative question: Who deflowered Mary, Joseph's fiancée?
The dogma itself offers a clear answer to this: the deflowering happened through the child who was born, the Son, Jesus Christ. (For the hymen, the anatomical sign of virginity, must have been broken at birth at the latest).

In other words, the "son" deflowered the virgin and made her a mother.
If one looks at the SON as a symbol, then this makes perfect sense.
For the "son" has two figurative, transferred meanings:

  1. The son symbolises the phallus of the man, for in it is the potency to beget a son in the flesh in the woman. He thus stands for the man's member through which he enters the woman's womb. (Incidentally, Jesus is unmistakably regarded - also in the eyes of the Church - as the bodily son of Joseph, for the latter's family tree is also cited as the family tree of Jesus).
  2. The "first-born" son also symbolises the relationship of the woman to the man as her The child in traditions is repeatedly also representative of the first fruit of the love between man and woman, which is the relationship itself.

(For further elaboration on these thoughts s. The Christmas Story and its Symbols).

What are the GODS?

Human traits

Mythological gods represent as models of various human character traits as archetypes and therefore also function as Archetypes. Thus the VIRGIN represents pure love, the god of air symbolises strict and invasive macho masculinity, the goddess of love femininity in its positive aspect and the father stands for wisdom and friendly warm-heartedness.

Cautionary example or idol

Thus, as archetypes, the gods can help human beings become conscious ("I am not like this and I never want to be!"). However, when they are worshipped, they become a figure of identification. For what man worships, he internalises and appropriates these qualities by allowing them to shape his life. For example: with the open worship of the tempestuous god of the air as the supreme god in Babylon, people began to glorify youthful, conquering and oppressive masculinity (s. Introduction to the Babyonian Gilgamesh epic.).

2. ARCHETYPES as universal and cross-cultural SYMBOLS
What does the archetype of the father mean?

The FATHER: Saving, healing love

Saving love

The father as the god of wisdom already appears in Sumerian mythology. He goes to the underworld to initiate new life there. He is also full of understanding for the suffering of the woman and the Great Feminine, of life itself.
Thus he also rescues the (goddess of) love from the underworld, who resurrects on the third day and returns to life (s. The Sumerian mythology of Inanna, the goddess of love).

With these characteristics he corresponds to the biblical Father-God.

God of wisdom

Wisdom is knowledge coupled with love. As the God of wisdom, the Father symbolises loving consciousness. He is a creative and impulse-giving spiritual force that moves matter and initiates new reality from potential.

[S. Father and Mother - Spirit and Matter and Consciousness and the Unconscious and The Creation of New Reality.]

Archetype for positive masculinity

As an archetype, the FATHER has love by definition because he has lived it through his relationship with his children. And pure love the father has gained through the good relationship with his daughter (VIRGIN) (because sex is not the issue). With her he has also integrated his inner woman and thus his feminine parts. (Love is the feminine side of the spirit). Thus the father has gained his soul and love and is full of understanding and warm-heartedness.

The SON of the Father - Power and Creative Potency

The Father enters living matter through his SON in order to initiate the new reality of love in it through the seed (of the Word) of love. (Basically the SON stands as Archetype stands for the power of the FATHER and thus also symbolises the potency to produce a son (i.e. the phallus; cf. Masculine Wholeness 3-in-1, Father - Son - Spirit.).

So the father has two very different sons:

The upside-down son: the uncontrolled drive

The father's wicked son symbolises the drive. He does not want to give himself, but strives for power in order to be able to take. Thus he pursues his own interests, does what he wants, consumes where he can and subjugates the feminine (the land and women). This behaviour leads to death, namely the death of relationships and the burning up of resources.

The obedient son: surrender to the great feminine

On the other hand, the obedient Son, according to the will of the Father, gives himself to the feminine and thus to life itself. He does not fear death, but overcomes it in the power of love and trusts in (eternal) life.
Jesus described himself as "the good Son of the Father" who was one with him and obeyed him (to the utmost) (Jn 10:30 and 15:9).

[S. Christ / Messiah, the Anointed One.]


Liberation from bondage to matter and resurrection from death

The loving consciousness overcomes the drive. Thus the Father liberates from bondage under the drives and matter. - As C.G. Jung put it:

Thefather is the representative of the spirit, which stands in the way of the impulse.[4]

The Bible says:

The warm-heartedness of the Father is great. While we were once caught in negativity and therefore as dead, he has awakened us through his love so that we will live in Christ. (Eph 2,4 f. literally in the Bible Server)

[S. The Father - a free text.]

The great feminine in the underworld - what does this mean?

The Underworld

The underworld is an image for the realm of the unconscious, the shadows and death, but also for purification and the birth of the new.

The great feminine

The great feminine is a symbol for living, receiving and reality-birthing matter, indeed for life itself. This includes both potential and living reality (in the form of waves and quanta, symbolised by Virgo and Mother).
[P. Virgo - miracle-working love and potential]

Thus the great feminine concretely includes (besides the "sea of all possibilities" as the potential) all women, all people, the whole earth, indeed the whole of creation.
[S. The Great Feminine in the Underworld.]

New reality from the unity of male and female

Living matter reacts to creative impulses of consciousness ("masculine") and brings forth new reality accordingly. Specifically, it responds to oppression with rebellion and outrage, revolt and insurrection. Love, on the other hand, is responded to with trust, so that impulses are readily materialised into new reality (birth, growth, carrying out directives such as building roads ...).
[S. Masculine and feminine and the creation of new reality.]

The Feminine in the Underworld

Now, even the oldest human traditions, (over 4000 years old), tell us that the great feminine has fallen into the underworld - and this as a reaction to the fact that in earthly existence power reigns instead of love.
[S. The Sumerian Creation Report.]

The limited human being

The consequence of this is, first of all, that life itself lies outside the consciousness of man. The reason for this is that man with his consciousness has been corrupted by power [see The Biblical Account of the Fall].

Therefore, he has no access to the creative potential and his lifetime is also limited (so that he cannot do more harm).
[S. The expulsion from paradise.]

The earthly situation as an opportunity for probation

The true Hero's Path of man, to which the traditions call, is to resist the The temptation to resist power and to choose the path of love instead.
Love does not fear the underworld, but boldly enters the shadows of existence to release the resources bound therein. It even overcomes death and thus enables access to eternal life (s. From Ego to Self).

The new creation of love

It is the Father's love coming into the midst of the darkness of matter and sowing in it the seed for the new, comprehensive existence.

[S. The Great Feminine in the Underworld.]


Who or what is Lilith?

Lilith, the dark virgin: strong but also angry femininity

Lilith is already mentioned in the Sumerian tradition as the dark maiden, because the name comes from Lil = wind and ITU = dark (s. Inanna, Lilith and the Tree, Episode 2). As such she represents the shadow side of Inanna, the goddess of love (from NIN = goddess and AN-NA = who descended from heaven). The shadow side of love is power and its female aspect means seduction and delusion. This is also already thematized in the art. Thus in the Burney Relief (ca. 1800 BC) "the queen of the night" is depicted, a naked woman with a flawless body, standing on lions and flanked by owls, both are hunters of the night.

Lilith, Adam's first wife

According to Jewish tradition, Lilith was Adam's first wife who did not want to be the underdog (in the truest sense of the word). Nevertheless, she was pushed to the ground, became a demon and flew to the Red Sea. There she is said to have copulated with a male demon named Samael and fathered countless children, but they all died. She is also said to haunt men in their nightly dreams.

They are powerful images that cry out for an answer.
[S. I am Lilith, the dark virgin.]

A demon? - What is a demon?

A demon is a spirit or in other words a personified negative spiritual content (Archetype) that can influence people and pull them into its maelstrom. While Lilith represents an archetype for negative femininity (as a the negative anima, the devil, Satan or Samael represents negative masculinity; cf. The negative animus as devil or body of pain.)

Pain and anger due to injury

Thus, even the earliest traditions tell of femininity having fallen into negativity from unconsciousness (figuratively, into the underworld) due to violation. This is a collective human problem, Original sin called, which signifies the curse on man. It means that love has died and therefore the great feminine, life itself is trapped in suffering and death (s. The Great Feminine, Life Itself, in the Underworld).

Resurrection of feminine love and power through integration of the shadows

Thus Lilith represents female power from the shadow, which still has to be integrated (s. The integration of the shadow: the way through the underworld). For the millennia of oppression and subjugation of women have accumulated into a strong female pain body which is expressed today in the anger of many women towards men (s. Garbatis Medusa and #MeToo).

 Finally, however, it is precisely this energy that helps to save pure love and to protect it (from evil), as is expressed in Disney's Sleeping Beauty interpretation "Maleficent, the Dark Fairy" and "the Powers That Be" with Angelina Jolie. [S. Maleficent as Sleeping Beauty interpretation and The dark fairy as goddess of fate.]

[S. Lilith: disturbing femininity and the power of women. ]

HELL: Why did the goddess of fate become hell?

Strong power-oriented masculinity, which suppressed and exploited the feminine, simultaneously demonised strong femininity. In rebellion against any higher order, the justified anger of the powerful goddess of fate and mistress of the underworld became hell with its torments of fire.

This in turn played into the hands of the power, because it could be used to terrify people and manipulate them even better. Such alienations ultimately weakened the power of myths, which originally wanted to convey people's trust in the good and in a higher meaning.

This answer is based on the following thoughts:

1. "Hel" or Mrs. "Holle" for the goddess and hell.

The word hell is associated with the name "HEL", the name of a Germanic underworld goddess. Also in "Frau Holle" also echoes the word "hell". She is one of the few traces of the great goddess of fate that can still be found in fairy tales. She rewards those who do good and punishes evildoers.

2. manifestation of destiny in matter

The great goddess as archetype for the life force in matter symbolises in her third aspect the forces of nature (for example Volcanoes) and fate (see Female wholeness - the goddess, white / red / black). She gives each person what they deserve in the form of their circumstances and fate.
It is life-giving, but can also be frenzied with anger and very destructive.

3. fear of punishment

No wonder the man of power fears this force. Deep down he knows that his evil deeds will not go unpunished. A strong rebellion against this is already expressed in the Babylonian Gilgamesh epub is expressed. The goddess herself is called a whore and the bull of heaven is slain. Apart from that, there are no more strong female figures in it, but at most monsters. But punishment is not lacking for Gilgamesh ...

4. fate: seemingly evil leads to good in the end

Disney's modern interpretation of Sleeping Beauty, Maleficent (with Angelina Jolie), picks up on this theme. It presents the evil fairy as the good one, who has every reason to be angry with the unjust king. As the goddess of fate, she represents the curse, but also the revival of the princess through the kiss.

GEORG, the dragon slayer: What do red coat and white horse mean?

Saint George is "holy" because he has achieved wholeness The man's path to wholeness is symbolised by the sequence of Colours Red, White and Black symbolised. Red stands for stormy youthfulness, white for saving devotion out of love and black for death. The latter signifies first and foremost the overcoming of the ego, through which wholeness and eternal life are attained (cf. From Ego to Self).
A Nordic Saga describes in detail this Way of the Hero. As a young man, he dreams of a beautiful woman Virgo in a white dress. After three years he rescues a woman from a fearsome dragon. After six years, he wins the red cloak that protects him from devouring fire. After 9 years, he wins the white horse that carries him over heavenly paths. Finally, he defeats the black giant and wins the virgin and eternal life. How he accomplishes all this and what it means, see:

[Knight George and the Maiden - 1.]

12: What is the special meaning of the number twelve?

The twelve - a powerful symbol for wholeness

In human traditions and lore, the twelve always appears where wholeness is to be represented:

  • The year consists of 12 months.
  • 12 signs of the zodiac are assigned to twelve months or years (China).
  • Day and night are divided into 12 hours.
  • 12 jurors deliver the verdict.
  • In the fairy tale Sleeping Beauty there are 12 golden plates and 12 fairies.
  • In the fairy tale of Aladdin, there are 12 silver bowls filled with food.
  • 12 gods rule in the Greek, Germanic and Nordic heaven of gods.
  • According to Jewish tradition, 12 tribes form the people of Israel, and 12 disciples of Jesus founded Christianity.

[More: The twelve and the thirteen at a glance.]

12 = 4 x 3 Wholeness: The inner family in harmony

The wholeness of the twelve stands for love and harmony in the area of relationships, which has a constructive and fulfilling effect on the whole of existence.
The family, which ensures the continuity of humanity, consists of FATHER, MOTHER, DAUGHTER and SON. Each of these four ARCHETYPES, is whole in itself when it is supported threefold: (s. God, Wholeness, 3-in-1).

The wholeness of the Twelve can thus be broken down as follows:

12 = 4 x 3

The number twelve is made up of four and three:

Twelve, in other words, means that each of the four aspects of being human is supported threefold. Thus divine wholeness is achieved, which carries over into eternal life (s. God, wholeness, 3-in-1, male and female.).

[More: The Inner Family and the Wholeness of the Twelve.]

13: Why is thirteen considered an unlucky number?

The thirteen is a symbol for the shadow, the ego or the snake in paradise.

The 13 - the shadow of the wholeness of the 12

The thirteen symbolises that which lies outside the Wholeness of the Twelve lies. In other words, it represents that which lies outside of consciousness, namely in the unconscious, in the shadow.
Thus the thirteen is a symbol for the ego as the negative identity of separation, which is also represented, for example, by the serpent in paradise.

Separation from unity and wholeness due to lack and sense of deficit

Sits the ego instead of love sits on the throne in the middle of life, then unity and wholeness disintegrate into individual pieces. The expulsion from paradise is an image of man being born into a broken reality in which lack, sickness and death are a reality. These in turn lead to mistrust from a lack of love and a striving for power (to be able to take what is lacking; see. Original sin as a collective human problem).

Thus the human being finds himself in lack and a sense of deficit. He feels separated from the greater whole, experiences separation also from his counterpart and even within himself, in that there are things he rejects about himself. Moreover, because he does not believe in love and forgiveness, he has to deny everything he is ashamed of and repress it into the shadows of the unconscious.

Thus, the 13 from negativity in the shadow (fear, sense of deficit or envy) in turn brings negative thoughts, words and deeds and thus unhappiness into life.

[S. The Twelve and the Thirteen at a Glance. ]

50: What does this number mean and what does it have to do with Pentecost?

Overcoming the negative dynamic

The word Pentecost comes from the Greek pentecosté and means 50. In Judaism, the harvest festival (Chawuot) is celebrated 50 days after Passover, in Christianity Pentecost is celebrated 50 days after Easter.
This is because the number 50 has an important symbolic meaning. It stands for the overcoming of the negative dynamic in matter in its 49 aspects or in 49 "days". Thus wholeness (7) is achieved in the completed Creation of the Seven "Days achieved (7 x 7 = 49).

[S. also The Temptations of Jesus.]

The Kingdom of Peace

That is why 50 is more than a jubilee. It symbolises the new that will replace the imperfect earthly reality, namely the Kingdom of Peace of God that the Messiah will establish.

Christian doctrine states that on Pentecost the Holy Spirit of God was poured out on the gathered and praying disciples. This is considered an "advance payment" or deposit for the future kingdom of peace.

Leadership, power and authority for the people

Thus, since Pentecost, the divine power through the Spirit of God works in every person who is open to it, comforting, instructing, guiding and giving the same authority as Jesus himself had.
It is this event, the coming of the Holy Spirit, that is celebrated at Pentecost.

[S. The Holy Spirit and 50, Pentecost and Prophecy.]

3. CHRIST and the devil
Christ and the "Anti-Christ": What does this distinction mean?

Christ is the Anointed One who enters into matter in love in order to generate the new reality of love in it. The great feminine (living matter, the people) confirms the chosen one through the anointing. It is the sign of readiness that the feminine, the living matter, is willing to receive the chosen one in love (and is analogous to the vaginal fluid of the woman).

The Anti-Christ the Anti-Anointed, in other words the one who invades by force without the anointing being there. He subjugates the feminine (the women, the people, the land) by tyrannising and traumatising it. He is the rapist, the ruthless ruler and despot who comes to steal and take life. He is symbolised in the myths by the god of air and represents the negative drive in matter (s. The negative animus as the devil or body of pain.).

[More s. Christ / Messiah, the Anointed One]

Christ / Messiah, the Anointed One - What does this title mean?

The term "Messiah" comes from the Hebrew "Messiah". MoshiachThe term "Christ" comes from the Greek "Christ". Christos. Both words mean "The Anointed One". The anointing is the sign that the feminine is ready to receive the chosen one in love. He enters into living matter and sows in it the seed of the word of love (instruction). In this way he initiates the new, respectively gives the impulse for what is to become.

[For more details see. Christ / Messiah, the Anointed One.]


Jesus Christ was a Jewish scholar (rabbi) named Joshua or Jehoshua (Greek: Jesus) and the founder of the Christian faith.
The name Jesus comes from the Aramaic Jeshua. The name is associated with the word for "save" or "deliver". The Greek word Christos is the translation of the Hebrew word Meshiach ("Messiah") and means "anointed one".
So Jesus Christ means: "anointed saviour".

Jesus Christ claimed to solve the collective human problem of people and creation and to redeem them from slavery, sickness and death. He gave himself with unconditional fatherly love ("in the name of the Father") to living matter and sowed in it the seed of the Father's Word to initiate a new creation of love. Signs and wonders were the sign of his "Anointing", namely of his election and legitimation by the great feminine (the life in matter).

A central thought here is:
This new creation overcomes death because it is born of love, which is stronger than death. Thus the earthly, transient existence is transformed into a new, spiritual, eternal existence of love.

Why did Jesus Christ have to die? - And what does that have to do with me?

Why did Jesus Christ have to die?

Church teaching says: Jesus Christ died because of "our sins and transgressions". But what does that mean in concrete terms? Did he have to die because I told a white lie yesterday and should I now also have a guilty conscience because of him?

There are two different approaches to the question of why Jesus had to die. One is the mythological approach, which speaks of a fallen existence. The other approach is the symbolic-archetypal meaning of the creation of new reality according to the act of procreation of a child.

[S. Male and female and the creation of new reality.]

Now to the two ways of answering the above question:

1. the mythological approach: redemption of life from the underworld

A collective problem: Creation in the underworld

The traditions speak of creation, which as living matter represents the great feminine, being in the underworld. This is the realm of shadows and death, which figuratively represents the fact of man's mortality and unconsciousness due to fear and negativity ("sin").

[S. The Great Feminine, Life Itself, in the Underworld; The Sumerian Creation Account and The Great Original Sin and Curse].

The way to the underworld: only by dying

If the Father in his loving consciousness wants to save creation, then he must therefore take the path to where it is, that is, to the realm of shadows and death. This path leads via dying.
Who would voluntarily take that upon himself? Only those who know that life itself cannot die. This means trusting that the soul, which is immaterial, will remain even if the body decays. Added to this is the confidence that perfect consciousness (the divine-spiritual creative power) can also "put on" new matter, a new body, again.

The seed of the Word and the new creation

"Jesus Christ" means "anointed Saviour". He stands for surrender out of love and for the obedient Son of the Father. In his power, the loving Father goes to the underworld, to where life itself is "imprisoned" in fear of death and love has died.
He liberates it by sowing the seed of the Word from the Father's love, which is stronger than death. Thus, in the darkness and unconsciousness of material existence, he initiates a new spiritual creation that grows towards the light of loving consciousness. This is one with the spirit of the Father, who is eternal (s. The Self).

2 The Symbolic Approach: The Begetting of New Life

The creation of new life and new reality takes place in the collective context no differently than on the human-physical level. This means that the (future) father enters with love into the living matter (Virgo as potential or mother as reality) with love in order to sow the seed in it, which initialises the new creation.

[S. Female Wholeness - the Goddess, White / Red / Black.]

He acts thereby in the power of his Son, who symbolises his potency (for in him is the capacity to produce a Son). The Son sows - in the dying of the power or potency the seed (of the Word) in matter. What everyone knows and what therefore appears as a "law of nature" is: the power or potency that "dies" in this act will also rise again.

[S. Male wholeness, God, Father - Son - Spirit.]

And what does that have to do with me?

One more comment on the question at the beginning: The message of dying and resurrection gives power and hope, but it is ultimately the responsibility of each individual to abstain from power and instead live the reality of love. (This is tantamount to dying to the ego; see From Ego to Self. )


Anointing signifies creative and divinely authorised authority to instigate new reality in living matter (people, potential and reality). Kings, priests and prophets had oil anointed over their heads as a sign of their divine legitimacy. This sybolic act borrows its imagery from the act of procreating a child: The woman's "anointing" is the sign of her readiness to conceive the Beloved. He enters into her and in the dying of his strength sows the seed for the procreation of a child. In the same way, the Anointed One "sows" in living matter, among human beings, his word (impulse, command) which is to bring about the creation of new reality.

[S. The Anointing and the Holy Spirit and Christ / Messiah, the Anointed One.]

Who or what is the DEVIL?

The German word "Teufel" (devil) comes from Greek diabolos, which means "to throw apart" or "to divide". Separation is opposed to "God" who stands for wholeness, unity and reconciliation and in the power of love. (This alone is able to overcome the ultimate opposites). Spirit and matter / Male and female to one.)

In human lore, the devil is symbolised by the God of the air symbolised. Here he has the function of the negative drive (Animus) in matter out of lack, deficit, pain and fear (s. The negative animus as devil or pain body). Negativity separates man from his anchorage in love. He loses his trust in the good and thus falls into mistrust and isolation. The consequence is separation from the whole, from other people and also from the human being himself (see "The human being"). The ego - the identity of separation.)

What does the god of air have to do with the devil?

Stormy, invasive masculinity as a negative drive in matter

The German word "Teufel" (devil) comes from Greek diabolos, which means "to throw apart" or "to divide". Separation is opposed to "God" who stands for wholeness, unity and reconciliation and in the power of love. (This alone is able to overcome the ultimate opposites). Spirit and matter / Male and female to one.)

In human lore the devil is symbolised by the God of the air symbolised. Here he has the function of the negative drive (Animus) in matter out of lack, deficit, pain and fear (s. The negative animus as the devil or pain body). Negativity separates man from his anchorage in love. He loses his trust in the good and thus falls into mistrust and isolation. The consequence is separation from the whole, from other people and also from the human being himself (s. ). The Ego - the Identity of Separation.)

Do ghosts exist? - What are ghosts?

Spirits" can be defined as personified spiritual factors that transport ideas, contents and conceptions that take possession of people in their thinking and feeling and thus shape their behaviour and actions.
There are "good" spiritual contents - "good spirits" and there are bad spiritual contents - "evil spirits". For example, they convey contents such as: "Nobody loves me, I am all alone in the world, that is why I have to fight for myself..." Or on the other hand: "You are loved and called to a special task that only you - in your uniqueness - can fulfil").

[For more see these articles: Archetypes / Animus and Anima, the Male and Female Spirits / The Animus, Drive in Matter / The Drive].

Who or what is the Holy SPIRIT?

The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of holiness and wholeness ("salvation"). It contains both the masculine side of the Spirit (power, fiery passion) and the feminine (love, forgiveness, understanding and comprehension). 

Hebrew RUACH means breath. However, many different spiritual aspects are united in Ruach, female as well as male. It includes the forces of nature, storm wind, power, anger, courage as qualities of the Great MOTHER and wisdom, truth, advice, gentle love as qualities of the Great FATHER,

[S. Father and Mother - Spirit and Matter and Wholeness - God 3-in-1].

On Pentecost, the Holy Spirit came upon the gathered people. He manifested himself through a storm wind (power), through flames of fire (passion) and in speaking and understanding many languages. The resulting enthusiasm, unity and mutual understanding can be seen as a countermovement to the Babylonian tower building. 

[S. The Holy Spirit: Power, Authority and Communication. ]

Seen in this way, the Holy Spirit is a harbinger or pledge of the Future Kingdom of Peace, which will be established after the horrors of the Last Days.

[S. 50, Pentecost and Prophecy.]

What is the human MIND?

The human mind is its ability to reflect (to look at and comment on) and instruct (to give instructions to itself, such as "I want to hold back my anger.") itself. The human mind is thus identical with human consciousness (s. Conscious and unconscious) and with its capacity for abstraction (translated from Latin: to draw away, to subtract). Man can withdraw "in spirit" to a spiritual plane, where, however, he is confronted with an abundance of spiritual impulses, e.g.: "You have to look out for yourself so that you don't fall short!"" or: ""If someone slaps you on the cheek, turn the other one to him too!". It is the task of the human being to perceive the spiritual impulses with his consciousness and to decide which ones he wants to "believe" and follow.

[S. The human consciousness.]

Spirit - Soul of Man: What is the difference?

The soul is the immaterial part of the personality, which consists of will, mind and feelings. The expression of these three is different from person to person (some are more mind-oriented, others are strong-willed or weak-willed, still others are more emotion-oriented...).
One can perceive the soul only when it manifests itself materially in facial expressions, gestures, words (tongue movements and sound waves) and deeds.
Otherwise it is "invisible" and not measurable and thus belongs to the spiritual world, to which it also has access (more s. What is the soul and where in the body is it located? and The human being, 3-in-1, body-soul-spirit).

What is FAITH?

Faith means trust and is thus an expression of love. Those who love and know they are loved trust. Whoever trusts that good forces are at work in life can stand positively in life and is more likely to have positive experiences.
Faith is the only "sense organ" for spiritual reality, for the level of the spirit. Faith and loving consciousness are identical. In traditions, faith is symbolised by the king (see The Conscious and the Unconscious - King and Queen).


The word comes from the Latin RE-LIGIO, which means to bind back. Humans must be bound back in their egoistic drive so that human coexistence in peace is possible. Religions therefore often contain rules on how people should live and link these to a "divine will" in order to emphasise the universal significance of the rules. Religion can have to do with faith, but it does not have to. Religion is the outer shell. Faith is the content. Religion can be misused as an instrument of power.

What is or was the GARDEN EDEN?

The word comes from the Sumerian GuAnEdin. Sumer lay between the Euphrates and Tigris rivers in Persia/Iran; Sumerian AN means "god" or "divine", EDIN means steppe, Gu stands for land/earth. The word as a whole is translated as "greened steppe" or "edge of heaven". The word became Hebrew Gan Edin and German Garten Eden.
The garden is also a symbol for the woman's womb, in which life can grow (see Paradise, the Garden of Eden - In Sumer).

What is the PARADISE?

Paradise has become a symbol of a state of unity and abundance. The word comes from the Persian PARDES and originally means "garden", "animal garden" or "pleasure garden". It is a secluded, protected area, like a garden (see Paradise, the Garden of Eden - in Sumer).

What does the DISTRIBUTION from Paradise mean?

Limits in material reality

The expulsion from paradise is an image of the human condition in the imperfect earthly reality. He encounters difficulties of all kinds in it: limits, illness and death. Man can, for example, imagine another, better reality, but he cannot create it with his sheer power of imagination (in the mind). He can only produce change on the physical-material level, through "work".

Separations and negative couple dynamics

This leads to doubts and to the question of whether there is anything else at all. The person who does not see himself as part of the great, but as separate, feels in the minus, in lack. He finds it difficult to love and trust. He believes only what he sees and is afraid in many respects. This is the birth of the Egos, the identity of separation.which defines itself through negativity and creates even more separation by saying: "Here I am, all alone. No one helps me. Outside is enemy territory!".
Death and with it the end of material existence is the outermost expression of this separation.

[S. on this The Bible's account of the Fall and the mystery of the serpent and The curse and the expulsion from paradise: negative couple dynamics.]

What is a TRIAL?

What is a temptation?

Put simply, a "temptation" is an attempt to lead a person away from the "right path".
There are opposing forces at work within the human being. These are the two fundamental opposites of love or power. They act as "the good or the evil instinct".

In other words, temptation leads people to selfish and libidinal behaviour, which harms others and oneself.

How do temptations work?

The feeling of lack

Temptations lure man to deviate from his good intentions and instead to follow his Drives temptations lure the human being to deviate from his good intentions and instead to follow his own instincts, separating him from the power of love and undermining his confidence because they suggest a lack.
The greater the lack, the more powerful the temptation.

Faith, however, which is rooted in love, knows no lack, but is full of trust that what is needed will be given.

[S. Overcoming temptations.]

The devil as tempter

The devil who tempted Jesus in the wilderness symbolises the spirit of power and also the negative drive in matter of lack. Man must first overcome this before he can penetrate to fullness and authority.

Through 49 negative factors to the fullness of the 50

The temptations of power are represented by 49 negative factors.

  • 40 of them symbolise physical temptations in earthly reality, symbolised by the four elements.
  • 9 other factors symbolise overcoming the temptation of power in the realm of the spirit.


[S. The temptations of Jesus in the desert.]

From Easter to Ascension Day to Pentecost

The 49 factors are also expressed in the 49 days after the resurrection until Pentecost (which means 50). At the same time, the Ascension takes place after 40 days, which indicates that now, with the temptations in the spirit ("heaven"), the last 9 factors are still the theme.

He who overcomes the 49 reaches the fullness of the Holy Spirit (the spirit of wholeness) and to the Authority over mattersymbolised by the 50.

[S. The 50, Pentecost and Prophecy.]

6. HEALING and REDEMPTION - out of bondage into the promised land
How does NEW REALITY come into being?

New living reality arises from the union of masculine and feminine. The impulse of consciousness ("male") triggers the realisation of the new in living matter ("female").
The four of the family, father, mother, daughter and son are involved in this. The new arises from their unity in love. The human being who has integrated all four aspects gains wholeness and Kingship in life and can freely shape his reality.
Male creative power is initiating energy that sets the impulse for the new. Female creative power is living matter that "gives birth" to reality. Thus, the procreation and birth of a child is also a model for the creation of new reality in a larger context, for example, in ruling structures (states).

[More s. The Creation of New Reality - Fruit of Wholeness
and The Four of the Family and the Creation of New Reality.]

How can humans create new reality?

The fact that humans can influence matter with their bodies and produce new things is an everyday story. But the question is:

  1. Can he create new reality with his sheer will and thinking, that is, with his imagination?
  2. And if so, what does it take?


Here are a few thoughts as a suggestion for possible answers: 

  1. In principle, man can generate new reality, because he is endowed with a creative consciousness and thus "equal to God". This also corresponds to the quantum physical principle that everything comes into being through consciousness ("male"). Living matter ("female", consisting of quanta as potential or reality) is designed to transform the impulse of consciousness into reality.
  2. But there is one condition that must be fulfilled: love. New reality arises from the union of male and female. For only love has the power to unite the ultimate opposites Spirit and matter into a fruitful cooperation. It brings the impulse of consciousness into living matter. In the Holy Spirit the two forces are united.

From the potential (symbolised by the virgin) thus becomes living new reality (symbolised by the child). And thus - metaphorically speaking - the virgin becomes the mother (see God, feminine).

Consciousness in connection with the power of love is faith. It is known to "move mountains". The loving consciousness is Messiah/Christ identical.
He who has no love needs power instead. In earthly reality, matter (people, land) can be manipulated through coercion and pressure. But then, instead of love, the "magic of power" comes into play, which in the long run runs itself to death.

More and more detailed on these topics in:
Masculine and Feminine and the Creation of New Reality

From Ego to Self - from Death to Life

The ego is the "little I", the identity of fear and separation. It is existence in the minus, is "non-life", namely a life in and out of negativity, mistrust and lack. Compulsively phobic and without trust, it sees only "enemy territory" outside itself. It denies the greater whole, and its greatest power is the fear of death. It believes only what it sees and it rules by creating "deed things". It is the primal materialist. It is responsible for the separation of man from the Great, the Whole, for separations among men and also for separation within man himself. This means that man is divided within himself and not reconciled.

The ego is being put on the Hero's Path, by the integration of the shadowovercome. In the process it "dies" and the human being gains his eternal identity of love, the self.

 [More s. The Ego and The Ego and the Self.]


What is the SHADE and how can it be integrated?

People repress what they do not like or do not know about themselves. These are unresolved conflicts as well as personal characteristics, feelings and reaction patterns that he does not want to have in the light of his life (see The Shadow). These are therefore, metaphorically speaking, "locked away in his shadow" and only come to the surface when the person is under stress and his usual control mechanisms are impaired (in case of weakness, intoxication or strong emotions).
Man integrates his shadows by loving himself in difficult situations and by practising to deal with himself lovingly, understandingly and patiently in a crisis. He can learn not to let himself be carried away to negative reactions (words and deeds), but to give himself time to react appropriately and constructively in spite of problematic feelings and impulses (s. How do I integrate my shadows in concrete terms?).

7. life and death
Why is the STORCH considered the "bringer of children"?

This can be explained with the symbolic meaning of the three colours red - white - black. The three colours stand for wholeness. They symbolise the three phases of a man's life: youth (red), adulthood (white) and mature age (black), as well as the three areas of life: body, soul and spirit. These meanings also fit perfectly with the anatomy of the stork:

  • Red (body) - With its legs the stork stands on the earth, with its beakit eats frogs. In former times the frog was regarded as a symbol for the penis, one said "fröscheln" instead of "vögeln" (to this symbol also the second "plague" of Egypt, the frog plague; see. The 10 plagues of Egypt). The long, red beak that swallows the frog also looks a bit like legs that spread. If one spins the image further, the birth of a child is quite a logical consequence. 
  • White (soul) - head and torso. These cover the two areas of the soul, mind and feeling (heart). 
  • Black (spirit) - The wing tips. The wings spread and the stork flies through the air, a symbol for the realm of the spirit.

The human being who lives love in all areas is whole.
When the unity of male and female and thus wholeness is achieved, the "birth" of the new, the new creationis imminent.

[ S. The Three Colours Red - White - Black; God, Wholeness, 3-in-1, Male and Female and The Creation of New Reality as the Fruit of Wholeness].

What is LIFE?

Life is the spirit in matter. The spiritual lies outside the consciousness of man. Man can end life by destroying the conditions for life and he can initiate life by fulfilling the biological conditions for new life. But in both cases these are merely the effects of "natural laws" whose foundations are given outside the sphere of human influence.

[S. Father and Mother, Spirit and Matter / Life and the Serpent: Ascension and Descent / Gilgamesh and the Quest for Eternal Life].

What is DEATH?

Death is the term for the absence of life in living matter and for its consequence: decay. Death occurs when the material prerequisites for life are no longer present (heartbeat, air...). Matter without life is called "dead matter". People without inner life, without a soul, are called "spiritually dead".

[S. The ego, the identity of separation.]

Is there a LIFE after DEATH?

If one assumes that the human being has a material part (body) and an immaterial part (soul), then the question arises whether the immaterial soul must necessarily cease to exist just because the material body decays?

[S. The human being 3-in-1, body, soul and spirit.]

Is there a LIFE before birth?

Most religions consider a "rebirth" or a "transmigration of souls", which takes the form of "fate" or "karma".
This has advantages for the integrity of the human being:

  1. If man sees himself in an existence of cause and effect and he has to assume that his present actions may have unforeseen consequences for him in an undefined future, he may be more likely to act responsibly.
  2. The person who believes that his fate has reasons - even if unknown - and thus his justification, then is more willing to accept his situation and make the best of it.
  3. Such faith also leaves room for a higher justice, according to the principle: "Every man gets what he deserves". This can be a comfort in the face of injustice.
What is a curse? And: do curses really work??

A curse is an evil wish or an already existing negative reality in life that has a destructive effect. It is thus the opposite of blessing, which means good wishes and good gifts.

Curse and blessing in life

Human reality bestows blessings and also curses on man, namely good gifts and dark sides (see e.g. in Sleeping Beauty). On the one hand, these are formed by the circumstances into which the human being is born; on the other hand, they are anchored in the body through genes, early childhood imprints and adopted behavioural patterns.

Negative body programmes as a curse

Genes and imprints that are anchored in the body lead to spontaneous, involuntary reactions that can be problematic. By recognising these and consciously addressing them, the person can free themselves from the power of the "curse" and achieve Self-efficacy or in other words Kingship in one's own life.

[S. How do I design positive instructions for the body?]

Curses as mental manipulation - does it really work?

In fact, man, created in the image of God, is endowed with a consciousness by means of which he can shape and influence matter and thus reality (s. The creation of new reality).
This is true in both the material and immaterial realms. But most people are not aware of the fact that even in the immaterial realm they can have much more effect than they think.
But in the spiritual realm there is fortunately a barrier. True power over matter is only received by those who have proven themselves through love and have Hero's Path has perfected himself. This means that it is not possible for man to create destructive spiritual reality. He can only activate already existing imprints and shadow sides.

Example: Faust and the Pact with the Devil

What Goethe's Faustt demands for himself from the pact with the devil is: "Show me the fruit that rots before it is broken!". This means nothing other than: "Show me a young woman whose disposition is to be abused and brought low". This girl is then found in Gretchen.

Conclusion: Only with existing weaknesses

So, mitigating: blessings and good wishes will always arrive. Curses as negative thoughts or bad wishes, on the other hand, can only work where there are already weak points in the integrity of the personality. These then act like gaps or weak points in a city wall through which enemies can penetrate. In concrete terms, they then lead, for example, in the couple relationship to a negative couple dynamics.
But here too: as soon as problematic patterns are recognised, they can be remedied.

[S. Self-efficacy - directing life positively.]

For what comes to the light of loving consciousness can be healed (s. Healing - what comes to light becomes light itself). The loving consciousness is identical with Christ identical.
Thus, life also ultimately leads every human being to recognise one's own weaknesses in order to close gaps and to Wholeness to attain.

8. male and female and the couple relationship
Masculine and feminine - the two creative energies
  • The masculine principle is active, forward moving energy that takes up space. This initiating force is symbolised by FIRE . It gives the in-formation, the seed of the word, into living matter and thus triggers the impulse for the new.
  • The female principle is passive-receiving, giving space and shaping. Passive, powerful and life-giving, it is symbolised by WATER . As living matter capable of shaping, it absorbs the impulse of consciousness, the information, and transforms it into new, living reality.

[More s. Male and female - the two primordial forces of creation.]

The two principles can fight each other in a negative dynamic that ultimately leads to death, or they can work together in love and unity and fertilise each other - to new life and new reality.

[S. Male and female and the creation of new reality.]

What is negative couple dynamics and how do they play out?

Male and female can complement each other in their positive form and fertilise each other into new life and new reality (cf. Masculine and feminine and the creation of new reality). In their negative form, however, they can become entangled in a power game and fight each other until the relationship runs itself into a "vicious circle", ultimately "to death".
In this negative couple dynamics of power, the two archetypes play Animus and anima in their respective negative guises play a decisive role.

  • The feminine side of power ("EIS"): Seduction and delusion.
  • The masculine side of power ("FIRE"): Oppression and violence.

Here the characteristics of the sexes are turned upside down. The woman appears in the grip of her negative inner man (Animus) dominant and aggressive. In return the man falls for his negative inner woman (Anima), which paralyzes him and prevents him from "standing his ground" in the conflict with the angry partner.

[S. Negative Couple Dynamics.]

Why do some men see women only as whores or saints?

The woman as a projection surface for the anima

Men who Magic ultimately only see their own feminine parts in the woman (the inner woman as her Projection their ANIMA). Accordingly, it remains black and white, whore or saint (cf. Robbie William's song "Angels). For the anima, as an inner idea or image of femininity, is a spiritual factor that has a strong motivating aura. However, the spiritual drive in man can ultimately be reduced to these two opposing forces: to power (born of fear) or to love and trust. These correspond with the ARCHETYPES of the WHORE (who uses her body as a means of power) and the VIRGIN(as a "saint", namely as a symbol of pure love and devotion and thus of wholeness) respectively.

The integration of the feminine parts through love and devotion

Through devotion and love, the man integrates his inner woman ("virgin") and thus gains his eternal soul (s. The Nordic fairy tale of the dragon slayer and the maiden). As this develops, he learns to encounter women in categories other than power or adoration, rather to perceive them as a counterpart. This expands his relationship possibilities into all the colours of the rainbow (cf. Paintings by Hilma af Klint).

[S. The man's path to wholeness and The Integration of the Anima].

Gender magnetism in same-sex couples?

Readers' question: on the article: Gender magnetism:

What happens to the poles when two men or two women love each other? What problems arise as a result?


The human being - male and female

Most problems arise from human limitations. But the goal for the human being is Wholeness. Created in the "image of God", he is male and female. Although he has either a male or a female body, he nevertheless also has both, namely male and female personality parts. He can consciously decide which one he wants to live.
But the goal (wholeness) includes both. It is important that the human being does not deny or reject anything and thus repress it into the Shadow repressed.

Masculine and feminine as the two creative elemental forces

This is not a matter of gender stereotypes, but of male and female as the two primordial forces of creation. From the union of the active-initiating principle ("masculine") and the receiving, reality-bringing principle ("feminine") comes into being. new reality.

Tension and new reality from the interaction of polarities

The unity of these ultimate opposites is only possible through the power of love. It may be easier to love what one knows and is like oneself. But tension and expansion of the personality arises in the encounter with that which is different. Thus, even in same-sex couples, it is often the case that the two polarities are lived within the framework of the relationship. However, they can also shift or change, e.g. sometimes one side takes the lead (male-initiating), sometimes the other. Likewise, these two energies can also shift or even exchange roles in opposite-sex couples, so that she is more "man" and he more "woman".

The unity of the two energies and poles in every human being

To unite both energies within oneself to a fruitful interaction and round cycle of polarities means to constantly seek the balance between spirit (e.g. inspiration) and matter ("grounding" and implementation). It further means to integrate the unconscious ("feminine") and thus the deeply rooted drives and patterns into the loving consciousness ("masculine") in order to Self-effective and creative in one's own life to stand.

Why and because of what do couple relationships fail?

Pink phase and disillusionment

It had started so beautifully with butterflies in the stomach and spring feelings ... One feels as part of something bigger, divine, is intoxicated, has infinite energy and life is wonderful.

But then, sooner or later, everyday life comes back with it the routine. At the same time, you get to know new facets of your partner and realize that the other person is not at all what you thought. A hint of disappointment or disillusionment blows through life.

What now? Was I mistaken about the person? Or do I have fundamentally too high standards?

A projection of one's own opposite-sex personality parts (shadow).

The problem is that we think (and this is also suggested to us everywhere) that the pink phase is the right state of a relationship. But infatuation is a projection of one's own opposite-sex personality parts onto a more or less suitable counterpart of the other sex. This projection is accompanied by strong (positive) emotions, which (as always when the feelings also manifest physically) are an indication of the activity of the unconscious. In this case, it is a matter of drawing attention to the opposite sex (because the goal is for them to be integrated as part of the shadow). It is as if the unconscious wants to shout out loud, "Look ... femininity can be so attractive!" In the rush of emotions, my whole existence answers, "Yes, yes!" and then immediately continues, "I must have her/him!" overhearing the second part of the sentence: "Awaken these qualities in you, your inner woman/man!"

The inner woman (anima) and the inner man (animus) and MAGIC

And already one has slipped into the middle of a relationship. Of course, this projection falls apart, because the person is never exactly as I imagine him / would like him to be, or formulated differently, as my inner woman (anima) / my inner man (animus).

The archetypes anima and animus act as the ideal image of masculinity or femininity and thus as "gods" or like idols within us and influence us without us being aware of it. Yet their positive manifestation is rarely a problem. As Christ or the Virgin, they motivate devotion out of love. But the shadow figures play their secret game of seduction, manipulation and dark magic, which is so fascinating that you like to be carried away and throw any reason or even your own freedom overboard. Of course ... You can't help it ... You can't help it, the forces are so strong! You let yourself be carried away and play along, until it no longer works and you stand before the OFF ...

9. SENSE and GOAL of the human being
SEEKING - What do people long for?

Man longs for unity, salvation, wholeness, love and fulfilment. He ultimately longs for an abolition of his state of separation and thus for an existence in belonging, security and fullness (see The Ego and the Self).

The GOAL: What is life about?
  • It's about making the most of your opportunities.
  • It's about pushing your own limits and developing further.
  • It is about winning the soul, the life and with it the spirit and eternal life.
  • It is about overcoming difficulties and finding eternal life (the latter is often symbolised by gold in myths).
  • It is about bringing love into all areas of life (see The Hero's Path).
  • It is about attaining wholeness (integrity, reconciliation, salvation and thus "holiness") (cf. Unity, wholeness and The Holy Wedding.
  • It is about achieving kingship in one's own life .
  • It's about making a difference in this world.
What is LOVE?
  • Love is more than a feeling, it is the will and the decision to accept what is different and to value it as a complement to one's own kind.
  • Love is the strongest force in the universe. It is the unifying element (the ether, the quintessence, see The fifth element). Love is the force that can unite the most extreme opposites so that new life and new reality comes into being (see The Creation of New Reality).
  • Love leaves space and gives itself.
  • Love is spiritual. It goes far beyond human limits. Love transcends death and outlasts space and time.
Where are there ANSWERS to the big questions?

All human traditions that have the well-being of man in mind and are concerned about his coexistence and development contain wisdom that can be reduced to a few essential basic statements that are helpful for man. These basic principles are summarised on this homepage under the numbers 1 to 12.

Why do traditions often speak in pictures?

Symbolic narratives in figurative language, or "images" for short, speak to the unconscious. In fairy tales, myths and also in religious traditions, complex and profound contents are conveyed through images. The mind cannot do much with the images without translation. Thus the traditions "smuggle" their partly "explosive material" unnoticed past the mind. With its formative contents, it seeps unhindered and unrecognised by the mind, directly into the body and into the unconscious and forms there into a deeper knowledge, a so-called "body knowledge". The mind is often inclined to censor and block messages that can bring about change. Behind this is the ego, which has taken possession of the mind. It resists any kind of change and awareness and is immediately on the spot with indignation, accusation and condemnation.

10. forces and basic principles of existence
Spirit and matter

Spirit and matter, the two original forces of the creation, stand on eye level, and both were - at least according to human-mythological understanding - always already there.

The Spirit, the Father Principle

The male principle is creative, spiritual power. It enters into living matter and sows in it the "seed of the word," the initial spark that initiates the new that is to become.
The initiating spirit has three forms that correspond to the three phases of man's life:

  1. Power/potency ("son")
  2. Love, devotion ("Father")
  3. Creative Word, Seed ("Great Father").

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

Matter the Mother Principle

(From lat. mater = mother). The female principle as formable matter and potential is also called "primordial chaos". This not yet defined, formable substance corresponds to the ether or the quantum physical "sea of all possibilities".
The living matter takes up the impulse of the spirit and "gives birth" to new material reality. It has with it likewise three forms:

  1. Potential ("Virgin")
  2. Reality ("Mother")
  3. Fate and the forces of nature ("Great Mother").

[S. Female Wholeness 3-in-1: Potential, Reality and Destiny.]

[S. Spirit and matter, father and mother and new reality; Male and female - the two original forces of creation and God, wholeness, 3-in-1, male and female.]

Global warming and the four elements: What is the spiritual background?

Global warming as well as ice ages occur due to a negative dynamic of the four elements.

The four elements as basic energies of existence

The four elements FIRE, WATER, EARTH and AIR represent the spiritual elemental forces of creation. They have on the one hand the well-known earthly-material functions which can be observed in nature (as sun warmth, magma, winds, waters, rain, sowing and harvest).
On the other hand, they also stand for specific human characteristics and their relationships. Thus they symbolize the archetypes FATHER, MOTHER, MOTHER and SON as well as body and soul, male and female (male FIRE for the body and AIR for the soul; female WATER for the soul and EARTH for the body).

[S. The four elements, meaning.]

The negative dynamics of the elements

If the four elements get into a negative dynamic, a "vicious circle" is created which keeps on turning without rest and without center. In the process, it always runs according to the same principles, whether in the climate, in the context of partnership disputes or in connection with conflicts of collective power structures such as states or religious communities.

Spirit moves matter

Behind this is the principle of "spirit moves matter". In existence, there are basically two different spiritual forces: love on the one hand and the ego, the identity of separation and denial on the other. When the latter prevails, the four elements get into a negative dynamic.

Man with his consciousness (spirit)

Thereby the human being with his consciousness takes a central role. Already in the Sumerian mythology he is placed with his consciousness in the middle of the creative events.
If now the ego rules and with it striving for power, greed and inconsiderateness, then man influences the forces of creation on the one hand quite materially, for example by cutting down forests, making burnings and polluting the seas. On the other hand, the "spiritual climate" is also poisoned, so that instead of trust, peace and abundance, there is an atmosphere of fear, mistrust and suggested lack, which leads to more striving for power, to egoism, greed and excessive consumption.

[S. The Dynamics of the Elements.]

FIRE and ICE; white and black magic

The negativity of the ego thereby instigates two different vicious circles, which lead to two destructive vicious circles (FIRE and ICE) through the female and the male spirit (animus and anima) in their negative form.
Thereby the Anima as a whore or serpent brings life to solidification through white magic ("ice times", seduction and delusion) by pulling everything into a detached, spiritualized or virtual reality. The animus as devil or beast on the other side burns life into a spiral of oppression and violence (black magic, "climate warming"), war and terror.

[S. Anima and Animus in Interaction: White and Black Magic.]

Global warming and the double negative dynamics FIRE

The two forces FIRE and ICE alternate again and again. But finally the negative anima will also enter the cycle of violence, so that a double FIRE dynamic will arise, which will endlessly fuel the climate dynamics and escalating conflicts, until ...
Yes, until man (finally, hopefully) learns to choose the better way of love and mindfulness, which will usher in the Kingdom of Peace of God.

11. numbers and their meaning
50: What does this number mean and what does it have to do with Pentecost?

Overcoming the negative dynamic

The word Pentecost comes from the Greek pentecosté and means 50. In Judaism, the harvest festival (Chawuot) is celebrated 50 days after Passover, in Christianity Pentecost is celebrated 50 days after Easter.
This is because the number 50 has an important symbolic meaning. It stands for the overcoming of the negative dynamic in matter in its 49 aspects or in 49 "days". Thus wholeness (7) is achieved in the completed Creation of the Seven "Days achieved (7 x 7 = 49).

[S. also The Temptations of Jesus.]

The Kingdom of Peace

That is why 50 is more than a jubilee. It symbolises the new that will replace the imperfect earthly reality, namely the Kingdom of Peace of God that the Messiah will establish.

Christian doctrine states that on Pentecost the Holy Spirit of God was poured out on the gathered and praying disciples. This is considered an "advance payment" or deposit for the future kingdom of peace.

Leadership, power and authority for the people

Thus, since Pentecost, the divine power through the Spirit of God works in every person who is open to it, comforting, instructing, guiding and giving the same authority as Jesus himself had.
It is this event, the coming of the Holy Spirit, that is celebrated at Pentecost.

[S. The Holy Spirit and 50, Pentecost and Prophecy.]
