With the fires in California (yet again), I meditated upon the Emerald Tablets of Thoth, where it is written:
Mysteries there are in the Cosmos
that unveiled fill the world with their light.
Let (s)he who would be free from the bonds of darkness
first divine the material from the immaterial,
the fire from the earth;
for know ye that as earth descends to earth,
so also fire ascends unto
fire and becomes one with fire.
(S)He who knows the fire that is within
himself shall ascend unto the eternal fire
and dwell in it eternally.
Fire, the inner fire,
is the most potent of all force,
for it overcometh all things and
penetrates to all things of the Earth.
(Wo)Man supports her/himself only on that which resists.
So Earth must resist else they existeth not.
All eyes do not see with the same vision,
for to one an object appears of
one form and color
and to a different eye of another.
So also the infinite fire,
changing from color to color,
is never the same from day to day.
Thus, speak I, THOTH, of my wisdom,
for a man is a fire burning bright
through the night…
Also, there are the challenges of Nor’easters coming to our North Quabbin Sanctuary… Wow, wouldn’t it be something if we could take both of the extremes and merge them to create something mild on both sides of our continent?
However, climate change, and all that can’t be controlled by us at this point…
Let’s just try to focus on those who have lost so much and give them as much positive energy as possible. I feel like that seems insignificant to the losses so many people are experiencing. And, we need to prepare at the California Woodlands Sanctuary to evacuate the animals and people and collect whatever is important.
What I had planned to write about was the great discovery in Saqqara of cat mummies and gorgeous artworks honoring cats and Bastet. This seems insignificant compared to an entire town being obliterated by fire.
Anyway, the cats and the Priestesses of Bastet are thrilled by this discovery.
Here is the bronze statue showing Bastet, along with some of the 100 wooden cat statues.
Bastet, please protect the people in the line of fires!
