Symbols - What does heaven look like

Chess

To understand this section you need to have read the description of The Egg and the Matrix .  It may also be helpful to read the description of the Hourglass.  As well as the Spiritual path and Wheel with six spokes!!

Within the egg, we are allocated a sliver – a shard – in that storage system.  This storage is divided into cells.  Viewed in cross section, it would appear to be a series of squares laid out on a grid.  So we might symbolically see the spiritual path as a squared board like a chess board, rather than a mountain to be climbed.

The spiritual path is then a journey across the ‘board’ from the bottom to the ‘top’.  The moves made will be dependent on what the aim of this game is and how it pans out, although there may be a plan,  individual moves may be adjusted according to the circumstances.  Sometimes as a piece in the game you will have no idea why something has happened – what your move was for. 

But of course the Great Players of life will do.  The Players of creation and destruction. See Intelligence Hierarchy.

Depending on your role and your destiny you may go up and down or from side to side [a castle], or one square at a time [a pawn], or diagonally [a bishop – hierophant ], or in a convoluted way [a knight].  The journey will not be straightforward.  During this ‘game’of life, we may find that we are knocked off the board before we make it to the top or the other side.

Although there are eight squares, the pawn starts on the second rank , thus the actual number of squares it has to travel is six – equating to the stages on the spiritual path.  See the Wheel with six spokes.

If we are a pawn, our aim is to become a queen.  But we may have been given the role of a knight or a castle or a bishop for this particular game.  We may be a queen helping another to become a queen.  Those who are already queens have great power and can move anywhere on the game of life, helping and defending others.

A pawn waiting to be a queen is fairly powerless. Unless our helpers and guides come along we may find we have to wait for another game – a new reincarnation before we get another go to get to the top, to get our crown and nirvana or moksha.
