WHAT IS THE PURPLE TENT™?
HOW IS IT RELATED TO SELF-KNOWLEDGE AND THE INNER KINGDOM?
The Purple Tent™ is a refuge for spiritual knowledge and growth. It is a symbol of the inner transformation that results when you find the kingdom via the path of Self-knowledge. The mysteries of purple can help you with this inner process. The spirit of the Tent lives in the space you and I co-create whenever we meet or talk.
The Tent is filled with transformational tools. The ancient wisdom found in the images of the Tarot Keys helps you remember your inner kingdom’s perfection. The Wheel of Life demonstrates the universal initiatory tasks of human spiritual evolution. Color, light, and sound can help you attune the human body-temple. Participating in sacred ceremony infuses life transitions with spiritual energy. You can always attend circles, classes or workshops to learn about other aspects of ancient wisdom.
If The Purple Tent™ strikes a resonant chord in you, come inside and pause for awhile to gather supplies for the journey ahead.
SELF KNOWLEDGE: Why is it so important?
Ancient wisdom teachers knew Self-knowledge was indispensable to their students’ spiritual evolution; in fact, it is said that the injunction, “KNOW THYSELF” was inscribed over the doorways to the ancient Mystery Schools.
“KNOWING YOURSELF” reveals the “CHILD OF TRUE HUMANITY/THE KINGDOM
The “child of true Humanity” is the essential and elemental True Self which is created in the Divine image. It is the kingdom of spirit which reigns in the human heart. Before you get to know the precious inner Self, the kingdom might seem more likely to be in the sky or in the sea; anywhere but inside you.
THE DIVINE BLUEPRINT
In the center of your being lives the kingdom, the Divine blueprint for an abundant life. Without knowing the kingdom, you lose touch with the creative spark of life which knows how to love, to understand, to serve…to be in the right place at the right time, doing the right thing. Without its guidance, the impoverished inner kingdom writes your life story. With it, you will always have a compass that guides you back to the path when you take the wrong direction. It is the hand that pulls you away from danger and the heart which encircles you with love when you feel alone. It is the inner teacher’s eternal instruction.
TAKE A MOMENT TO IMAGINE
Pause for a while to look at the two Tarot Keys below. Their images will stimulate your subconscious to remember, if you have forgotten, the Truth that lives inside you.
To reach the heights of Self-knowledge, you travel an inner initiatory path of spiritual evolution. Key 18, The Moon, will help you remember how your inner journey progresses. Key 19, The Sun, shows you a picture of yourself in a state of childlike joy. This state of spiritual regeneration far exceeds the ability of your five senses to restore you to wholeness.
