Sword in the Stone

"Once a Son or Daughter of God enters the Divine Life Awakening Protocol, God Sanctions the Awarding of Divine Truth by Presenting to the Visiting Spiritual-Soul the Sword in a Stone. But it is the Spiritual-Soul's personal proclamation to enter into its next Higher State when He or She Faces the Sword (Truth) Thrust into the Stone (Truth locked up in the Spirit).
Initiation for the Right of Passage to Activate, Attain, and Protect Divine Truth begins at the moment the Spiritual-Soul takes hold of the Hilt, followed by Pulling the Sword out of the Stone. This is followed by the Spiritual-Soul kneeling (a sign of Service to the Will of God) and with both hands on the Hilt (Allegiance to Serve) points the Sword upward toward God the Father and Mother, the True Source of All Truth.
God Responds by Striking the Tip of the Sword with a Bolt of Lightning, the Great Symbol for Sanctioning the Omnipresence of God. The Living Energy Surges down through the Sword into the Arm and Body of the Spiritual-Soul that Transfigures the Spirit's Body into the Divine Rite of Passage for the Attainment of Unlimited Truth." ...................Sword Excalibur,

“In Mediaeval literature, swords are referred to as aesthetic, powerful and magical objects. The many similarities between the descriptions of swords in Norse and Mediaeval literature suggest that the splendour of the sword in the latter had roots in the Viking notions of the symbolic power, magic and ritual aspects of the ornate sword. The Viking Age was a period of great social upheaval. At times like that, certain symbolic objects may play an important role in negotiating social positions. There is much to suggest that these magnificent swords were such objects, reflecting the status and power of the warrior and his clan,” ......................Hanne Lovise.

In the legend of the Samurai sword, Amakuni and his son who were the forgers of the swords for the King's army realized that their sword failed and broke during the battle. The king was not pleased. Amakuni and his son locked themselves in the forge and prayed feverishly to the Shinto gods for inspiration.
On the seventh night, the divine came to them both in a dream - a glowing image of a single edged, slightly curved blade. This is the sword that never failed in battle and became the Samurai sword. The sword and the connection to the Divine and how a well trained Samurai could transfer his 'Chi' through the sword is now an establishes fact.

Many of you are familiar with the mythical story of King Arthur and the sword Excalibur. The deeper truth hidden within this myth is the nature of Divine Truth and the difficulty involved in extricating it from the deeply embedded arena of the human consciousness. Though the author of the above quote says, it is embedded in the spirit, what she means is deeply embedded in human consciousness.
Since the basic attribute of Divine truth is one with Divine consciousness and as the spirit within an individual is but a mirror reflection of the same, the difficulty of extrication arises in the fossilized nature of the Divine consciousness in the individual self through layers of deposits and encrustation caused by sensory inputs and perceptions.
Arthur after taking possession of Excalibur is made King but his transgression into lower level of consciousness, through marrying his half sister brings about his death through her son but Excalibur is returned to its original domain.
The journey of the sword of Divine truth is complete when the human seeker and his consciousness leaves the mortal body and is claimed back into the Divine realm. This is symbolized by the act of King Arthur, on his death bed, asking his knight, Sir Bedevere, to throw Excalibur into the lake and saw the hand of the Lady of the lake rise out of the water and claim the sword. In all spiritual mythologies, water bodies are such as lakes , ocean are symbols of consciousness.

Now for the for the continuation of the quote another mythical story in the form of a cartoon character can be recalled. Many of you might have watched the TV cartoon series in the 1980s "He Man and the Masters of the Universe".
Its lead character is Prince Adam, the young son of Eternia's rulers, King Randor, and Queen Marlena. Whenever Prince Adam holds the Sword of Power aloft, it is struck by lightning and proclaims "By the Power of Grayskull! I have the power" he is endowed with fabulous secret powers and transformed into He-Man, the most powerful man in the universe.
Here again the power is bestowed from beyond physical existence from a Divine realm. Grayskull, an emblem of death, symbolizes that which is beyond the limited human existence.
He-Man uses his powers to defend Eternia from the evil forces of Skeletor. Skeletor's main goal is to conquer the mysterious fortress of Castle Grayskull, from which He-Man draws his powers. If successful, Skeletor would have enough power to rule Eternia and possibly the entire universe.
This is the constant struggle between the ego consciousness and the Divine consciousness within each individual.

All these stories and myths carry this deep meaning of connection between the human and the Divine and how the rite of passage unfolds through one's own effort to extricate the wonderful treasure buried deep within each one of us.

Love to you all
