If one would realize that the world of God, His splendour and magnificence, are to be seen in the wise and the foolish, in the good and the bad, then one would think tolerantly and reverently of all mankind, knowing that it represents the messenger, as the messenger represents God. For no one has seen God at any time, but if there is anyone who represents God, it is the man who speaks His word. God is seen in the one who glorifies Him. But if our hearts are closed, even if we wait for a thousand years for the messenger to show himself, we shall never find him. For he who is always there has said, ‘I am Alpha and Omega. I exist every moment. When you call me, I am there. Knock at the door, and I will answer you.’ And those whose eyes are open do not need to go to a church and look at a picture or statue of the Lord. In the eyes of every infant, in the smile of every innocent child, they receive the blessing of Christ.
It only means changing one’s outlook on life, and recognizing the divine in man. But man has ignored the divine spirit that manifests in humanity, and always prefers an idol, a painting, a picture, to the living God, who is constantly before him. For the sage, the seer, the saint, and the yogi who begin to see the master, and see him living, there is no place where he cannot be seen. Then everywhere the beloved master is ready to answer the cry of the soul coming from friend, father or teacher. And if we go a little further forward, we will find that the teacher speaks aloud, not only through living beings, but through nature. If the eyes and ears are open, the leaves of the trees become as pages of the Bible. If the heart is alive, the whole life becomes one single vision of His sublime beauty, speaking to us at every moment.

The Golden Mean is one of many names given to the system of measurement and design used by ancient artists, sculptures and architects to create highly aesthetic forms of unsurpassed beauty. The ugliness of so much 20th century architecture is due to the absence of spiritual proportion in favour of economy. In the schools I attended, scorn was encouraged rather than respect for the values of our ancestors.
The Golden Mean was considered by Pythagoras, the Egyptians, the Druids, and other ancient schools of wisdom, to be clear evidence of the mind of God at work in nature. It is present in all living structures. The human body was considered to be the measuring stick of the universe. Its proportions embody the canon of the “Phi* Ratio”. While the Phi, or Golden Ratio was formalized in mathematics, its natural counterpart was discovered by the monk Leonardo Fibonacci, who preceded Da Vinci by about 250 years. When Fibonacci studied growth patterns in plants he noted that their leaves emerge in a spiraling formation that demonstrates a significant angular and numerical sequence: 1 – 1 – 2 – 3 – 5 – 8 – 13 – 21 – 35 – 56, etc., where the next number is the sum of the preceding two numbers. This was a remarkable discovery as it synchronizes with the ancient math used to calculate the Phi ratio. This is why the ancients considered sacred geometry to be the Creators signature made visible in nature. From the spiral of a snail-shell to the spiral of the galaxy, the Fibonacci sequence is everywhere; even in our bones. This also applies to the study of crystal atomic geometry. Even our cells, from conception, grow in perfect geometric proportion.
Human anatomical geometry is said to be the measuring rule of the universe. The large green circle surrounding our man on the left side of the picture below corresponds to the diameter of the Earth, while the small circles of the “Flower of Life” (also called the “Cosmic Fish Net”) which make the human Merkaba, correspond in exact proportion to the diameter of the moon. The Flower of Life pattern is the matrix of Metatron’s Cube; which is the foundation of all atomic phenomena and houses the Platonic Solids: which are the at the heart of all crystal geometry. This is a geometrically verifiable fact. It is also somewhat intriguing that the ancients knew to a high degree of accuracy the circumference and diameters of the Earth and the moon extrapolated from, amongst other things, study of the human form. They did not think that the Earth was flat. This notion was enforced during the dark ages. The centre of the upper circle, where the apex of the male tetrahedron ends, is the exact location of the causal chakra. To repeat, the large circle corresponds to the circumference of the earth and the small circles to the circumference of the moon when the human body is measured with sacred geometry.
The Fibonacci spiral originating with our lady in the yellow background above, contains its male counterpart in the straight lines drawn inside it. Note that when we position the spiral so that the straight male line intersects the lady’s navel, the male line of the spiral on the mans body intersects his genitals. This synchronicity is significant on the energetic levels for the processes of conception and birth. In the final picture on the right of the diagram below, we have emphasised the Golden Mean heart as this symbolises the universal harmony that underlies our gender and our geometric relationship with the planet. The Man is set in the square while the lady is set in the circle. The geometry is appropriate. Whichever way you look at it, we are crystals at the centre of our being.
