(The path of Beauty is a valuable and intrinsic part of The Temple of Mary
to be explored in depth)
The Gabriel Messages (channeled material received by Shanta Gabriel)
call this period of time the Lion's Gate Initiation
And here we are, on a mystical Christmas Eve,
witnessing the Star of Bethlehem in the skies
announcing the birth, re-birth and resurrection
of the Lion, the Christ, the Holy Son and Daughter of the Most High
Through the symbolism of the Lion we are shown that
we are on the eve of a return to Innocence, to the unadulterated
symbolism embedded in the depths of the unconscious of humanity;
a return to a true sense and intuition of the God within, as opposed
to the mythical and masculine creature created by man and called God
in Heaven, separate and devoid of the feminine.
First the three moons appeared reminding us of the three wise men
who followed the first Star of Bethlehem.
(In the Judaic tradition Bethlehem is regarded as the City of David)
And tomorrow the Star of David will appear in the sky,
beckoning all to witness the birth of the consciousness
that will be able to grasp and understand that
the literal and mythical interpretation of God is no longer necessary.
Enlightenment is when you pass through the gateless gate.
When you realise that you are both the gate and they key
and that neither truly existed.
This is the birth of a new consciousness that will be available
to all of humanity. This new era of Love will be accessible
to those who are willing to let go of the lower realms of the mythical
gods and goddesses and who are courageous enough to embrace
the dictum 'you are the gate and you are the key'.
The Christed Son and Daughter of the Most High is the Self.
In The Temple of Mary we will immerse ourselves in these energies
during the Third Initiation and we will explore
the stone buried at the foot of the Tree of Life.
