For some reason, whenever anything moves in this universe, it starts to spin. Every galaxy, every solar system, every atom—they all have a vertical axis that runs perpendicular to their rotational disk. It’s as though the energy that generated their movement was at right-angle to the effect.
What does this have to do with us? Our energy is the energy of Being. We have a vertical focus, our own individual axis mundi—we are each the center of our own universe. The philosopher, Martin Heidegger, called this our “stand,” an appropriate term for a vertical element of being. And just as drawing all of our energy into the center of our field of awareness (as described above) causes that field to empty out and become a vacuum, so does our “stand” create a “clearing,” another term coined by Heidegger. This clearing becomes our creative field, and it will manifest according to the intention inherent in our stand. In other words, we create what we are.
This would all be nothing more than theory, until you start using it. Then you can feel it, because what we are talking about is the actual movement of power, force, and energy in our lives. This is what the saying “go within” actually means. Going within means moving from the realm of effect into the realm of cause. Spiritual geometry and its symbols are the living language that shows us how to do that.
The circle with a dot in the center can be viewed in different ways:
The dot becomes the axis, and the circle becomes a cycle of activity. This is what is meant by the term “living God.” The circle with a dot, remember, represents God as Creator. The circle by itself represents God as undifferentiated creative potential. The dot, then, is the Word or the Christ, the Son/Sun of God. “All things that were made were made by Him.” The sun is the source of all life energy in this solar system, from the very highest frequencies of spiritual light to the very lowest of the longest waves of electro-magnet force.
We have to learn to speak of God in real terms. God is not an idea, is not a philosophy, and is not separate from Its creation. God is in and through everything that exists. Nothing that is not of God can exist here. This does not mean that the creation is the totality of God. We are still talking about the circle with a dot. The circle without a dot transcends all of this.
There is much more to the unseen than there is to the seen. This solar system, when viewed physically, is nothing more than a conglomeration of matter, gases, and plasma. But viewed spiritually, it is a living cell. Applying the principle of as above, so below, the same can be said about us. In our spiritual being, we are a cell in the mind of God. We have the same center, the same dynamics of cyclical energies, the same light. We are extensions of it, and it is the larger version of us. Microcosm and macrocosm.
There is only one circle with a dot. All the rest differ only in size, which in this context is completely and profoundly irrelevant.
