- The All-Seeing Eye: Sacred Origins Of A Hijacked Symbol (via Shift Frequency)
I confess that I watch the occasional pop music video, and get exasperated when commenters condemn symbols like the Eye of Horus as purely Illuminati symbols, as if forgetting their meanings go back much further and can be reclaimed/repurposed by anyone–including the viewer with enough historical knowledge. To villify all symbols and all use of them as evil seems hardly empowering; I feel such attempts at esoteric programming/perversion, should they be seen through, should be merely pointed out and laughed off instead of feared. I like a certain yellow butterfly as a beautiful insect–but it seems there are people who take any appearance of a butterfly in an artistic work as a tool of M&Ultr4 (misspelling deliberate). It almost makes me question if I would be accused of being in the program if I put specific butterflies into my paintings.
Esoteric symbols shouldn’t be feared in and of themselves; It is all about how and with what intentions they are used. There have been many sacred and spiritual symbols cheapened and perverted, but it also doesn’t mean everything has been corrupted alike by mainstream and indie artists. If you can spot evil intentions for certain, good for you, but fear/panic/resistance as a response to all esoteric-looking symbolism seems a weak choice. It’s not any fun to be the person who sees the devil everywhere.
Any information given that encourages fear instead of empowerment should be approached with a ton of discernment and wisdom. All this said, using and/or donning inverted/perverted esoteric symbols for the “cool” factor without knowing their meanings is just plain stupidity. It is the spiritual equivalent of asking to be tattooed with the Chinese characters for “dumbass”.
If it needs be said, I liked this article over the fear-mongering stuff I’ve run into elsewhere.
