The first thing I have to say is Thank You!! to everyone who made the first Wingmaker's chat a success. I deeply enjoyed the conversation and I loved connecting with each of you in realtime. The experience of breathing Sacred Love together was totally awesome!
I first saw the Wingmakers material several years ago and bookmarked the site, but I wasn't ready for it and it didn't resonate. I thought it was probably an elaborate, very artistic hoax. Not bad really - but I never looked much beyond the surface, and I found the reading the reading illuminating but slow going. If any of you have read Shoghi Effendi, you'll know exactly what I mean.
I rediscovered the site during the TC and have been exploring it with new eyes. I remember from before that I found the artwork both moving and intriguing, and I have been exploring them with renewed perception and interest. I feel the paintings form a complementary language to the essays and poetry, and transmit both energy and information in a totally nonverbal way. Going through them in sequence is like reading a book, many chapters of which are richly deserving of deep study. Much like the TC itself, only subliminal, nonverbal and holistic.
I gathered during the chat that many are not accustomed to contemplating information transmitted in this way. While I can't decipher the message for you, I may be able to help in opening your inner eye to how the message is received.
I invite you to breathe Sacred Love and let your amygdala tingle anytime you contemplate art of any kind. Be aware of what happens in the brain when the amygdala, the third eye and the pituitary all kick in with the frontal lobes, the part we don't use much! In this case, the message is powerful and with the aid of the amygdala it can be felt viscerally. Do any of you do energy work with stones or crystals? If so you may find it helpful to hold one of your favorites while exploring the site. (I have a citrine orb which I sometimes use for scrying that modulates energies beautifully, and also a smoky-quartz wand that is like an amplifier of some kind...when I touch the point between my eyebrows it's like a shock that goes all the way to my toes).
One thing you become aware of immediately is that this artwork celebrates the Sacred Feminine in every way. The portal on the front page is in the form of a vulva. Clicking this image and then clicking on the banner at the top brings you to a page which a displays a link called "Wingmakers Time Capsule" which is the one you want. This brings you to the master index for the 23 chambers.
(23 is a prime number, by the way, with some interesting properties if you're into that kind of thing).
I won't even attempt a guided tour of all 23 chambers. But as we look at some of them, I'll share the kinds of things they say to me, and hopefully this'll be useful.
The very first image is one of the most abstract and brings the feminine imagery a step further, almost subliminally. The image seems to represent a vortex or tunnel, very organic, maybe even a mouth...there is a powerful swirling quality complete with eddies and swimming vaginas, as a trail of mysterious information or data is drawn across the foreground...intense with Sacred Sexuality, it seductively invites us to...
...the Second Chamber, which tells us exactly where we are going! The Sacred Passage is clearly marked, literally surrounded with information, opening upwards into the sky. To the woman, it must be breathtaking to see her essence displayed Divinely in this way...to the man it cannot help but say, You Know You Want To. This is no invitation to an orgy. This is the most intimate opening of Divine Creative Love opening to us in the most direct way possible.
Chamber Three opens up a further point regarding Sacred Sexuality. Beneath the figures, one joyfully dancing and the other creating the music of ongoing life, the earth transmits her secrets. On the left, the sacred triangle of Venus, the Sacred Unity, and the sacred pyramid are arranged, and on the right we are invited onward - into the sacred place from which we all have come! Between these two sets of information we see the living Earth streaming forth New Life, Holy Energy, and Divine Information.
The chambers sing the diversity of the Divine Music, and again and again the rapturous nature of Sacred Sexuality is stated. This would no doubt shock some people, just as the frank nudes of Manet and El Greco shocked art patrons of their eras. I find no pornography. Nevertheless the imagery is pervasive.
I find Chambers 10 and 21 especially interesting. I try not to interpret too much, but simply let the energy of the images flow to me. The symbol in Chamber Ten is so searingly, explicitly Female that it arrested my male energy totally. What does it say? It bleeds. It beckons. Invites to spirit, not to flesh. And yet, flesh is the form we see first. We've just come from 9 which is a swirl of breasts, eyes, embryos and as always, those panels of mysterious data which seem to me to be our clue that they are intended to teach us something. Eleven and Twelve actually take us now into the Portal - and now it is clear that the message is not sex but something entirely spiritual that is gifted to us in the communion of the sexes.
In Chamber Fifteen, an orb of energy rises from the inmost cleft of Earth herself, pushed out and upward by torrents of information into the night sky of our world. We are carried deeper and deeper into the ecstasy of the Feminine Principle, and in the Seventeenth Gallery we see how the man receives this information. For him, the next images are a series of mind-blowing, holistic epiphanies. By the time we reach the inferno of the Twentieth Chamber through which we must walk to reach the true heart of the matter, I guess the man has either evolved a little or run off to kill something.
Chamber 21 has the most complex imagery. It reflects many things. Streams of information, matrix-like, pour through the background. The eye of perception opens at the lower left , empowering the male principle to now swim joyously upward into the swirl of nascent, ecstatic life that occupies the center of the image. At the lower right, involved in the wonder of the event, the new awareness prepares to enter the world. Female orgasm pulses in the upper left. And between the male and the female, now fully enlightened as to the true meaning of Sacred Sexuality, there is a portal. It is the door of self-sacrifice, not standing in any spotlight but there in plain view for those who approach it.
This door leads us to the next level. The painting in Chamber 22 seems to me to be a sort of summary of all that has been taught, after which we are brought to the final Chamber, which is us. In the final scene, the man honors the woman, and on the walls are the scenes which illustrate the lessons of the journey.
To me the message seems clear: This Is Who You Are.
Why the celebration of the Female with less emphasis on the Male Principle? I speculate several reasons, including a counterpoint to the way the written information reaches our brains. Also, we are clearly invited to consider this aspect of the New Paradigm as it impacts our own lives and as we pass it on to those who will succeed us. On a certain level, we're being told, "Lighten Up!" if such frank images make us squirm.
Well, that's where the Wingmakers artwork takes me. I may be full of baloney. There are far fewer phallic symbols in the many paintings than there are images galore that celebrate Woman. The male principle is really not released until the 21st or lesson, after his eye has been opened to what he took for granted before. I believe we are being invited to experience an expanded sense of ourselves, not merely male or female but fully able to access both the yang and the yin as we spread light.
I find the essays and poetry profoundly moving and stimulating. They awaken memories as well as open new insights. I find the artwork transcendent and genuinely wing-bestowing.
