Starflower of Boston – Part 2

SHARON’S ROSE MATRIX for CHRIST AND CHRISTMAS, SCIENCE AND HEALTH, and WINDOW OF THE OPEN BOOK

THE WORD AS THE WORD – “PRAYER”

STAR OF BETHLEHEM {the STARFLOWER OF BOSTON}

First Edition

Fast circling on, from zone to zone,
            Bright, blest, afar, —
O’er the grim night of chaos shone
            One lone, brave star.

Scriptural basis:
            I am the root and offspring of David, and the bright and morning star. — Christ Jesus.

Starflower of Boston – Part 1

            Helen Wright’s book STAR OF BOSTON The Life of Mary Baker Eddy has three sections to it.  Part I is about Mary Baker Eddy fulfilling Isaiah 54, Part II is Atonement and Eucharist: the story of the Second Coming of the Christ as Revelation, and Part III is about Christ and Christmas, an illustrated poem by Mary Baker Eddy.  And finally there is a Conclusion.
            What I would like to talk to you about is Part III of her book.  Helen uses quote excerpts from the writings of Alice Orgain and a manuscript attributed (but never confirmed) to Judge Septimus J. Hanna.  When she quotes from this manuscript she places a question mark after Hanna’s name.  She also gives us some ideas on the topic by John Pawlik, someone she knew.  I have studied Christ and Christmas for years, and am not sure that I agree with everything that Alice Orgain writes upon the topic, but I am open to changing my mind.  And I think that I have done so on Illustration 8 – TREATING THE SICK.  It is explained in Helen’s book that every illustration points to a particular time in Mary Baker Eddy’s life, which is probably so, and so I will try and bring out that point to you, as I do not know if I have succeeded in my past posts on the topic in this respect (or on this topic).  Part 1 is about how Christ and Christmas correlates with the symbols in The First Church of Christ Scientist in Boston.  Parts 2 and 3 have to do with Sharon’s Rose Matrix and its alignment with WINDOW OF THE OPEN BOOK, a Rose Window on the South side of the little edifice in Boston.
            Helen did not include the material written by Doris Grekel (from one of her biographies on Mary Baker Eddy and in some of her pamphlets she used to publish).  This could be because Helen did not have room for everything out there written on Christ and Christmas, for her book is only 257 pages long and Alice Orgain’s two books are WAY bigger!
            I do not know John Pawlik, so I will leave him out of my discussion, because what I want to explain, at this point, is the big difference between the Orgain, Hanna (?), and Grekel ideas on Christ and Christmas.

Are There Sixteen Commandments?

            Is it possible that there are sixteen Commandments instead of ten?  Perhaps the BIBLE’S Ten Commandments represent man’s ascension to heaven (home, harmony), while six other Commandments; or rather Six Tenets represent God’s descending from heaven, as the Bride, or the Word that is God (Rev. 21:10)?  Is it also possible that these Six Tenets provide mankind with true Democracy through self-government?  I feel as if the Ten Commandments were given to Israel when they needed a material church organization with rules, and Moses (and then his successors, the Levite priests) were the Law givers giving the people their shall nots.  In other words, the early Israelite Church was not based upon self-government but had a bunch of rules and regulations to be followed.  The Ten Commandments, however, were set in stone (ten portions of the infinite divine calculus).  They are our Father-Mother God’s Law that we must follow and obey.  But once we have obeyed them and learned from them, was there something else that needed to be given to the people (both Israel and Christian alike)?  Would these Six Tenets be guidelines for mankind’s self-government via Principle (God)?
            It is quite interesting that when we add (addition is a function of the Christ) the Ten Commandments with these Six Tenets that we come up with the number of sixteen.  Sixteen is the same number for the matrix structure for the divine infinite calculus.  There are sixteen main chapters for the Christian Science Textbook – SCIENCE AND HEALTH WITH KEY TO THE SCRIPTURES, by Mary Baker Eddy.  Is it possible then that each of these chapters coincides with the Ten Commandments and the Six Tenets provided in SCIENCE AND HEALTH and the Christian Science Church Manual.  I am willing to take a chance and answer, “Yes.”  And I also feel that I must correlate this matrix pattern with WINDOW OF THE OPEN BOOK, a.k.a. the Director’s Window, located in the Edifice of The First Church of Christ, Scientist, Boston, Massachusetts.  I  feel that God revealed all of this to me on June 17, 2018 so that I can present to you the Bride of the City of our God (Christian Science) as, what I call, sixteen STARGATES.

SPIRITUAL INSIGHTS

The following is at the very end of my post – “The Spiritual Idea” – pt. 2.  I wanted to add to it after seeing The Da Vinci Code again (on March 24, 2017).  I have added new material to the post.  I will not go into as great of detail as I could about The Da Vinci Code because I have eleven-part post on it elsewhere called – The Da Vinci Code Uncoded.  (If you have read SPIRITUAL INSIGHTS before April 9, 2017, there have been a few additions made.)

            In the drawing above of The First Church of Christ Scientist, in Boston, it stands alone without the Extension.  Notice that there is the dove of divine Science descending down with a detached branch in its beak.  This matches the dove seen in the second drawing for the eleventh Illustration in Christ and Christmas titled THE WAY (seen below is part of THE WAY, as the dove is hard to make out in the full view I have of the Illustration).

            “The (little) Mother Church is the best interpreter of the limitations of ‘Mother.’  It is lighted by {a star with seven points of light, in the skylight of the auditorium (a picture of this skylight is seen further on)} …and the vestibule leading to Mother’s Room (the latter closed in 1908, Nov. 21, 1908, Sentinel), is also lighted by a seven pointed star {which I do not have a picture of}.” (p. 474)

Bird's Eye View

            Above is a drawing I did, several years ago (even before I saw a satellite photo of the Church) of the original Edifice in Boston.  I am not sure I am accurate with the directions in it either (without actually going there and knowing where true North is located at).  The skylight window is oversized.  In the center of the skylight is the seven-pointed Star, like the one seen in the Vestry.  Below is a close up of what Assembly would look like if it had taken place in the Disney movie Earth*Star Voyager.

Assembly

            To me the seven points of each star represents the seven synonymous terms for God:  Mind, Spirit, Soul, Principle, Life, Truth, and Love.  At this time I would like to insert a portion of a letter written by David Nolan in 2003 about Mother’s Room.

The Twelve Tribes – Part 2

The Oil Lamp Keystone

THE SIXTH SON – THE CHRIST AS THE CHRIST – NAPHTALI (“Science, Theology, Medicine”)
            “NAPHTALI, Jacob’s sixth son {Truth}, was again Rachel’s child by Bilhah her maid.  This time she wrestles and prevails over law (“My sister”), which is the meaning of Naphtali (wrestling).  {Jacob does not wrestle with the law until after Joseph is born.}  Love must wrestle from under law and embrace it.  Naphtali in Moses’ song must possess the west {Science} and the south {Christianity}.  The south (Christianity), in the city foursquare, is human suffering {permitting error}, ‘with its Southern Cross {of Calvary} in the skies {Levi},’ S&H 575, but the west is the ‘Golden shore of love and the peaceful sea of harmony {Judah},’ S&H 575:32-576:2.  Naphtali must rise out of wrestling (south) and go on to Love (west), Gen. 49:21, Jacob’s blessing—‘a hind let loose’ (I have wrestled with my sister and have prevailed—released [let loose]—my son).  This wrestling out from under law to the light of Love opens a door that can never be shut (Love “goes no more out,” Rev. 3:7-13) and it corresponds to the sixth Church—Philadelphia {Brotherly Love; Spirit}, Rev. 3:6-13.  ‘I have set before thee an open door {a Stargate}, and no man can shut it.’ Verses 11, 12 give promise for ‘overcoming.’” (p. 131-132)
            When Levi permits the error of sexual intercourse it leads to spiritualism (Judah).  But Judah, being rightfully interpreted, is the Word (the Bride) of Science.  This tone shows man that Christian Science reverses spiritualism.  It is through the woman’s leaven that Science, Theology, and Medicine are raised up to the point where the Christ consciousness reflects its own Christhood (its own virginity).  The five wise virgins had oil in their lamps so they were allowed to go into the wedding of the bridegroom Lamb and the Lamb’s bride.
            Orgain says that Naphtali’s struggle “corresponds to Rev. 6:12-17, the opening of the sixth seal and the struggle up {via the woman’s leavened bread} to true manhood {the Christ consciousness} and Womanhood {Christhood} above the animal sense, — the animal, and the male and female being the three steps {“Science, Theology, Medicine”} in the sixth day.  The sun, moon and stars are darkened and the earth quakes.  Mental values are all shaken up and changed, as the material sense of animal and man and woman, Gen. 1:24-27, are successively challenged by spiritual values.  ‘Isms’ and ‘ologies’ are forced to yield to their nothingness; Rev. 3:10 warns the Church of Philadelphia of this struggle.
