Nathan & Sister Soul in the Sun Realm of Mothers 4'x 5'
A primordial imagination of the Nathan Jesus and sister soul in the Realm of the Mothers. Goethe imagines the Realm of the Mother's in the Center of the earth. Steiner mentions the Realm of the Mother's is in the Sun, where pure innocent souls dwell. Pondering this realm over the years, celebrating the joy of pure innocence, the Nathan soul dances with sister soul hovering. Perhaps Shambhala, the sun realm does dwell in the center of the earth in the heart of the Christ.
Shambhala, which is a Sanskrit word meaning “place of peace” or “place of silence”, is a mythical paradise spoken of in ancient texts, including the Kalachakra Tantra and the ancient scriptures of the Zhang Zhung culture which predated Tibetan Buddhism in western Tibet. According to legend, it is a land where only the pure of heart can live, a place where love and wisdom reigns and where people are immune to suffering, want or old age.
Shambhala is said to be the land of a thousand names. It has been called the Forbidden Land, the Land of White Waters, Land of Radiant Spirits, Land of Living Fire, Land of the Living Gods and Land of Wonders. The Hindus call it Aryavartha (‘The Land of the Worthy Ones); the Chinese know it as Hsi Tien, the Western Paradise of Hsi Wang Mu; and to the Russian Old Believers, it is known as Belovoyde. But throughout Asia, it is best known by its Sanskrit name, Shambhala, Shamballa, or Shangri-la.
The Nathan Soul can be viewed as the Guardian Angel of humanity. Here is a prayer to our guardian angel from the 15th century.
ANGEL PRAYER from a 15th CENTURY PRAYER BOOK
Ah, good courteous angel ordained for my protection, I know well my feebleness and my ignorance. Also well I know that I have no strength to do God's service, except only by his grace, and by your busy care. The knowledge I have comes in no way from me, except what God chooses to send me at your good entreaty. Now good gracious angel, I ask you humbly for mercy, for I have taken little heed of your good busyness, but now I thank you as I can, with full heart beseeching you that ye keep me truly this day, and evermore, sleeping and waking, with sure defending and your holy teaching.
Defend me and keep me from bodily harms, defend me and keep me from spiritual perils, for the worship of God and the salvation of my soul. Teach me and guide me how to use my wits for the greatest honor and pleasure of God, feed me with devotion and savour of spiritual sweetness, comfort me when there is need against my spiritual enemies, and permit me not to lose the grace that is granted me, but by your worthy office keep me in God's service to my life's end.
And after the passing of the body, present my soul unto merciful God: for though I fall every day by my own frailty, thou I take in witness that I ever hope in mercy. Gladly would I honor thee, if I might, to thy satisfaction; therefore to honor God for you, and thou also in him according to his holy teaching, I thank him with holy prayer.
