ONE GOD, MANY PATHS

UNITY

Know that there is only one God, one consciousness though spoken in different words,

and wisdom given by different people in many different ways.

                                                    –Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

This mandala is symbolic of the idea, One God, Many Paths.

There is so much hatred in the world today because of religious dogma and yet love is at

the root of all religions.

In the center of the mandala is the vesica piscis, a geometric shape created by the circumference

of two same size circles laying on the center point of the other. The mathematical ratio

of the width of the vesica piscis to its height is the square root of 3. The shape has played a part

in many forms of mysticism through out history. Inside of it is the all seeing eye of God.

Surrounding and protecting it is a dodecahedron, one of the platonic solids and

as remarked by Plato in Timaeus 55 …”the god used for arranging the constellations

on the whole heaven”.

The top hand is Buddha’s in it he holds a lotus bud. The hand is held in the position of

the Vitarka Mudra, symbolizing Intellectual argument, discussion.

To the right is the Hand of Fatima. Fatima was the prophet Mohammed’s daughter.

In the center of the eight petal holy flower of Islam is Allah’s name.

The bottom hand is the hand of Jesus Christ. On the wrist is the Rosicrucian rose.

The center of the rose bleeds the stigmata.

To the left is the Jewish Hand of Hamsa or Hand of Miriam. Like the hand of Fatima it is seen

as the hand of God and a protective amulet. In the palm is the Star of David and the implied

center of the Flower of Life.

The web symbolizes that we are all caught in this Earthly plane together.

Blue is considered a spiritual color in religions world wide.

DESIGN MEANING: Metatrons

Enoch metatron's cube erin cadigan

Enoch turns into Metatron

The sacred geometry symbol in this design is Metatron’s cube. Inherent in the cube are the five platonic solids. Platonic solids are congurent regular polygons. A regular polygon is a three dimmensional shape whose angles are all the same and whose sides are all equal. What makes them congruent is that their faces are all the same size and shape as well. The five Platonic Solids implied by the two dimensional Metatron’s cube are: Star Tetrahedron, Hexadron (cube), Octahedron, Dodecahedron, and Icosahedron.

The prophet Enoch is seen driving a fiery chariot into the the symbol. Enoch was the great-grandfather of Noah and the seventh generational decendent of Adam and Eve. He is written about in the Biblical book of Genesis and The New Testament as well as in the Book of Enoch, Enoch2 (Slavonic), and in one of the Dead Sea Scrolls known as Enoch 3. It is said in these historic accounts that Enoch never died. According to the records Enoch lived on Earth 365 years and was accended to Heaven with out ever dying. The records state that Enoch accended into Heaven and was returned bodily to Earth on several occassions before the final time he was taken up. The horses and fiery chariot is a reference to the specifics of the prophet Elijah’s ascension as the method of Enochs ascension is never described. The chariot itself is a reference to the “Winged Disk” motif found through out the ancient Middle East.

In Enoch 1 and Enoch 2 it is stated that Enoch was transformed into the angel Metatron before the face of God.  This creates for the Earthly Enoch a heavenly counter-part or twin, making him to be both Enoch and Metatron at once. In both Enoch 2 and Enoch 3 the “face of God” is described as a face of fire, “a glorious brilliance”.  Later Merkabah accounts catagorize Metatron as the Face of God. Medieval Jewish mystical texts refer to Metatron as the scribe of God, an angel of the highest power, who is the only angel allowed to sit in the presence of the Lord. He is seated to the right, behind the throne of God.

“This Enoch whose flesh was turned to flame, his veins to fire, his eyelashes to flashes of lightening, his eye balls to flaming torches and who God placed on a throne next to the throne of glory, recieved after this heavenly transformation the name of Metatron.

–Enoch 3
