Man’s animal nature partakes of the earth; his divine nature of the heavens; his human nature of the mediator.” – Manly P. Hall
The Seal of Solomon is also known as the double triangle of the Kabbalists, or Creator’s Star. It is a hexagonal figure formed of two interlaced equilateral triangles. Esoterically speaking, the upright triangle embodies the masculine, as the downward the divine feminine; and in science, the two triangles are the symbols for both fire (phosphorus) and water.
Two key chemical energies of our DNA that we must seek to master in order to create a life that is akin to a heaven on earth. On the contrary, if we let these forces control us, then our lives may be one long walk through the pits of hell.
The Seal of Solomon signifies all that is unified in perfect balance with these chemical energy forces. A master of the AS ABOVE and SO BELOW, so you can be as healthy as possible on the AS WITHIN, both mentally and physically, in order for you operate effectively on the AS WITHOUT. An alchemical heaven that you simply create with your thoughts, will, words, and actions.
“For the Lord himself being asked when his Kingdom should come? answered: When Two Shall Be One, and that which is without as that which is within; and the male with the female neither male nor female”; which mysterious but deeply significant words Clement attempts to explain, by adding—” When man shall have united both his Soul and Spirit in the obedience of reason; then, as Paul says, there is in us neither male nor female.”
Fire is an equilateral triangle with its apex pointing upwards, for flame ascends in that form.
Water again is its opposite element that is denoted by a triangle with the apex pointing downwards, showing the way or how water exerts its power.
The marriage of opposites and the mastery of the “forces” that are within us all. AS ABOVE, SO BELOW and AS WITHIN, SO WITHOUT.
When we master these forces we can become god’s messengers. Creators connected to the godhead, who are Able to operate at a level much higher than other people.
These forces that each one of us humans contains within our very blood, that when we master them, we master the AS WITHIN and SO WITHOUT in our lives. We can then heal ourselves of disease, both physical and self-induced mental manias. Our senses are heightened and perceptions are refined to the point where we become highly intuitive super humans, who simply operate at a level much higher than our fellow-man on the street. We become like Jesus and reach Christ consciousness, or like Buddha, obtaining buddhahood.
33rd Degree Freemason Manly P Hall in the “Secret Teachings of All Ages on pg 143 said this;
“What the sun is to the solar system, the spirit is to the bodies of man; for his natures, organs, and functions are as planets surrounding the central life (or sun) and living upon its emanations. The solar power in man is divided into three parts, which are termed the threefold human spirit of man. All three of these spiritual natures are said to be radiant and transcendent; united, they form the Divinity in man. Man’s threefold lower nature- consisting of his physical organism, his emotional nature, and his mental faculties-reflects the light of his three fold Divinity and bears witness of It in the physical world.
Man’s three bodies are symbolized by an upright triangle, when united in the form of a six-pointed star, were called by the Jews ‘the Star of David,’ ‘the Signet of Solomon,’ and are more commonly known today as the ‘Star of Zion.’ These triangles symbolize the spiritual and material universes linked together in the constitution of the human creature, who partakes of both Nature and Divinity. Man’s animal nature partakes of the earth; his divine nature of the heavens; his human nature of the mediator.”
The six-pointed star or double Triangle of the Macrocosm may well be adopted as the New Dispensation, or Church of the First-born, the sons and daughters of God; for it is symbolic of the development and acquisition of the Sixth Sense with which these are endowed. It is the Star of Bethlehem which led the way to the finding of the Divine Babe; it is, I believe, used in some Christian Churches as a symbol of the two-fold nature of Christ, and it is certainly allegorical of the Divine Nature, Love and Wisdom, or perfect blending of the male and female Principles in the Divine Being.
It particularly represents the divine union of the male and female, Two-in-one, which it is destined to bring about on all planes—negative and positive, material and spiritual, head and heart, spirit and soul, intellect and intuition, male and female; the marriage, in short, of the Son of Man with the Heavenly Bride, from which union the Sons of God are to be born; no longer “the Only Son,” but that Spirit of Truth, the Comforter who is to lead us into All Truth, that we may all be one in him who is one with the Father.
The Seal of Solomon was a magical signet ring said to have been possessed by King Solomon, which variously gave him the power to command demons, genies (or jinni), or to speak with animals. The Seal of Solomon is according to Islamic belief the Star of David; there is no difference. (Wikipedia)
