the Christian nations the Dragon symbolically is the absolute enemy.
the Bible the word snake is synonymous of dragon and Satan. “And there was a fight in Heaven. Michael and His Angels fought the
Dragon; and the Dragon and its angels fought them. But they did not prevail, nor
did they get a wider place in Heaven. And the great Dragon was driven out; the
old snake, called Devil or Satan, that cheated the whole world, was sent on the
Earth together with its angels”.
Also Indo-European legends and myths tell us about a
dragon, the chaos defeated by the
God of Light who banishes it:
“An old Celtic legend says that since the beginning of
the world a great snake, with wings and horns, lies under the mantle of the
Earth. Its coils creep inside the depths of the Ocean and its bones support the
Its power go through the world, and where its bones are
closer to the surface it comes up more and more powerful”
those who are purified are able to defeat it, be he a saint, a hero or an
fight against the dragon is in fact also an initiatic trial that takes to self
knowledge, if successful, because this is the only way to conquest freedom, and
it is only in this way that the concept of the dragon must be understood, as a
giver of knowledge… and not as an ally. In fact, it must be the result of a
deserved victory on one’s self in order to be purified and not of a given
present, as those joining in usually hope!
to several traditions the dragon is therefore a god fallen on Earth, whose
dismembered body fecundates and gives life to the planet.
traditions tell of “a dragon of the chaos or a primordial snake that at the
beginning (of times) is met and defeated by the God of Light who kills it and
creates heaven and earth from the fragments of its body; or banishes it”.
birth of world from the body of a cosmic being is in fact a myth alive in many
cultures that state that a single God establishing the Universal Order appears
from the initial chaos.
the first being created by God Himself appears and it revolts against Him, its
rebellion causes disturbance in the cosmic Order and a return to Chaos.
defeats this being, whose sacrifice we can identify with the defeat of Chaos and
a new return to the divine Order.
SACRIFICE, MYTH OF DEATH AND RESURRECTION
sacrifice it is essential to divide in order to reunite again, a motto of
Freemasonry is: “to reunite all that is spread”. The myth of the fallen god
is described by many traditions in the following way: From the sacrifice and the
dismemberment of the body of the rebel god the different parts break off and
falling on the ground they fecundate it, giving birth to vegetables and animals.
ancient India the limbs of Parusha, the Great Being with 1000 eyes, are
scattered, divided at the beginning of time by the first sacrifice
committed by the Deva (angels) from which all the manifested creatures were born,
and this is similar to the archangel Michael who defeated the dragon with his
angels. In the Nordic legends the sacrificed god is Ymr, from whose parts are
born the earth and the sea, the forests and the sky.
who emasculates his father Uranus means the dismemberment of the One in Many.
Egypt it is the god Osiris who is killed and his parts scattered. His body cut
in pieces is thrown in the Nile. The parts will be found by Isis who, putting
them together, will make him revive in Orion.
repetition of the myth of the divine sacrifice is the true explanation of the
reason why in the ancient times the pagan gods often asked men a human sacrifice.
This was requested each time when it was necessary to re-establish the order
troubled, or each time when men asked the gods to help them to succeed in an
MYSTERY OF THE FOOD OF IMMORTALITY AND THE SCIAMANIC INITIATION
food of immortality is the fruit of the Tree of Life, the first human couple
refused it to taste the fruit of Goodness and Evil, was driven out of Eden and
for this reason it became, alas!, mortal.
sciamanic initiation the applicant sciaman is submitted to a series of tortures
inflicted to his astral body while in extra-corporal state, which he feels and
lives as if conducted on his real body. He is slowly skinned and dismembered by
entities that act as sacrificators, until his bones are visible and so are
cleaned and recomposed. At the end of this rite new flesh and skin will reappear
on the skeleton. This fact is stated in several traditions diffused on the whole
planet from the Asiatic to the Siberian ones,
to the African, to the Indians of America. I can testify the truth of what below
stated as I personally experienced it.
the initiatic rite of death and rebirth, as in order to rebirth the man must
first die to himself in his current condition of fall, becoming a new, purified
man. This explains why the sorrow which is part of humanity brings, if accepted,
an inner maturation and a spiritual growth.
Getting back to the actions
of the sciamanic rite, they are performed by sacrificing entities that may also
be opponent forces and here lies the whole mystery of the sacred sacrifice;
let’s see why.
man who is initiated in this way gets back to the original condition again, and
so he can approach the Tree of Life and the food of Immortality.
should these forces help such a transformation? It is necessary to understand a
very important thing: between the victim and the executioner a true energetic
connection is established, therefore what happens to the first one is of
advantage also to the second. Therefore the food of immortality reached by the
initiated is also reached by the sacrificers, who continue to feed themselves
with the nectar of gods, even if they also have been banished from Eden!
HOLY COMMUNION AND THE ROSARY
mystery of the Way of the Cross with the climbing to the Golgota, of the five
sores, of the flagellation, of the crown of thorns and of the crucifixion of
Jesus repeat this process. “They have perforated, they have seen all my bones”
from David’s psalm…
the Saviour of humanity, became a man and repeated the same scheme to
which men were submitted by the pagan gods. In order to free us though he turned
the situation upside down, as He, the son of God, has been sacrificed by men and
in this great act of Love lies Jesus greatness!
is the real meaning of the Holy Communion where the body and the blood of Christ
taken by the believers through faith really is the food of Immortality.
is the true meaning of the rosary that through his Sorrowful, Joyful and
Glorious mysteries takes the believer to go along the same initiatic road of
suffering, death and resurrection of Jesus.
divine sacrifice has produced again the food of Immortality, this time offered
not to gods but to men. This has re-opened the contact between God and men, the
Son of God in fact has become Himself the Tree of Life for us, a Tree of raising
that has allowed to open the way of returning and of raising to Heaven.
