Symbols - What does heaven look like
Red and Blue
In the film the Matrix, Neo is offered the choice between the Blue Pill and continuing to live in an synthesized, fictional, computer generated world, or taking the Red Pill and joining the ‘real world’ [the 'source'] and escape from the Matrix in the film of the same name.
this is your last chance after this there is no turning back
you take the blue pill the story ends you wake up in your bed and believe
whatever you want to believe
you take the red pill you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit-hole goes
remember all I'm offering is the truth
The plot is woven to make it exciting and absorbing, but the concept of Red and Blue is actually a mystic one and goes back millenia. To understand its symbolism one must first understand something of the spiritual path.
Those who get reincarnated and have to create on earth again are said to be undertaking the Moon’s journey. In other words you have never even attempted or been called onto the spiritual path and thus when you die you will reincarnate. The normal path is to the moon – the blue route.
The Tarot card [left] shows the path coloured yellow but emerging from water to go past the two guardians through the twin towers/portals and up to the Moon, which symbolically is a feminine symbol. She becomes full with baby souls [Higher spirits], then symbolically gives birth to become a new moon again. The symbolism is lovely - quite poetic.
Yodh (also spelled Yud, Yod, Jod, or Jodh) is the tenth letter of many Semitic alphabets, including Phoenician, Aramaic, Hebrew Yud י, Syriac ܝ and Arabic Yāʾ ي (in abjadi order, 28th in modern order). When used in some of the Tarot cards its meaning appears to have been corrupted somewhat to mean 'soul', but as far as I can ascertain this is incorrect. Yodh is the Higher spirit. The apparent rain drops are actually Yodhs - Higher spirits either going symbolically to the Moon after death or coming from the Moon to be born as a new baby to start a new life, their past life forgotten.
It simply means we will be almost immediately born into a new life as a baby with probably no memory at all of any previous existence, but with yet another job to do on earth. The endless cycle, always on the wheel, always working.
Many of these symbols were devised when being an incarnated human was an horrendous prospect - endless drudgery and work, toil, sweat, labour, with little reward. These days for most people it is marginally better, decent food, still the toil, sweat and labour, but of course with the rather ominous and terrifying prospect of climate changing looming and a very uncertain future.
In contrast, anyone who has actually achieved their destiny and reached the end of the spiritual path has no need to return to this life of uncertainty and toil.
But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.
While ye have Light, believe in the Light, that ye may be the children of Light. These things spake Jesus, and departed
The mystic’s path is the red road to the symbolic Sun. Essentially, unless we travel the spiritual path and become an enlightened being, a saint or a child-like person it is round and round the endless wheel of life.
O you, winged of the blue heavens; you who have strong wings and eyes which see everything – you live in the depths of the heavens and are very close to Wakan Tanka. We are about to offer this pipe; help us with your sacred red and blue days
