More insights into the Tower Tarot card - purification
Below are comments by another Adept after reading the previous visions, only this time by looking at the Tower Thoth Tarot card.
Our Brothers decended from above. Actually it is the only way in because the bottom is blocked by fire from what looks like a creatures mouth, even though the gate is open. So, someone said something about clearing kundalini and nadi's which suggests that the lower chakras and centers have been worked with because fear is no longer present in order for them to descend. They are ready to look further, unafraid. This is a mirror world. Imagine a man head to head, one above the other. Supposedly we work from the bottom at the base of the spine and move upwards to enlightenment. If this is a mirror world then that means that in the unseen world the head or last center is in fact the first center we come to as we ascend, ending with the first center, the center of creativity the beginning of creation. Are you with me? It is reversed. The first center, or chakra, whatever you want to call it is in fact the highest center in the reversed position. Creation.
Purifying the Lataif
On first reading this sounds bizarre - the kundalini going in the opposite direction? Actually, what is talked about is the purification of the Lataif.
So the Brothers descended down the stairs through the centers. Nirvana suggests all is peace and love and light and blissful but it doesn't deal with this reality. For some it is a way of 'checking out'. We are here to live and function in this reality to interelate with each other and this Planet. To find our peace within without escaping from life. To know ourselves. So begins the descent to the bottom of the tower to the fiery depths.
Purifying by Fire
In the picture of the tower the fire suggests that humanity couldn't or wouldn't go past these depths ( to go within) so ascended the stairs to find their freedom from life and their repressions, but have not learnt anything. Something's missing here. Can't quite grasp it, maybe you can.
What needs to happen is the descent beyond the fire. I don't think anyone said anything about heat or fire. perhaps because they descended, instead of ascending, the pathway is clear already. Instead they descend into the darkness, the creatures mouth. The First Brother I think sees dark water at one point. A few nights ago I had a dream I was on a raft in a deep chasm the water was very black. There were a few others with me, maybe it was you guys. There were people in the water and the water was raging, it was dangerous. Some people were clinging to their belongings and others had their hands outstretched for us to help them onto the raft. I have no idea how I got into the chasm or how I got out. This is the only memory. I didn't know what to make of it until I read your additions and maybe it's not related at all.
But perhaps once we get out from the depths of the dark, murky water we can then ascend safely back to this reality and see how beautiful life on this Planet in human form can be.
The eye is open and shining. Both the scorpion and dove are very close to the eye and the rays eminating from the eye seem to overshadow the tower and the chaos it represents. Therefore as you said, I think, it actually isn't so bad, as the destruction which the lightening and fire seem to represent is actually only destroying the old to make way for the new. The brightness and clarity of seeing with new eyes.
