We brought a riddle...
Because the Sphinx, an Earth Altar, is good at riddles, we brought the mystery, "How can humanity help heal and not destroy the web of life?"
Emil, our intrepid guide, informs us that the word Sphinx means "giver of life." Sphinx is also a symbol of the rising sun because it directly faces east. That means that on the equinoxes the sun rises in straight alignment between the eyes of the Sphinx. At sunrise this morning, the Love Tribe in Egypt, coming from as far as Columbia, Australia and Bali, followed our Alchemical shaman, Nicki Scully, into a mystic initiation between the paws of the Sphinx, identifying with the four directions and the vertical line between Earth and Heaven, and connecting our hearts with the heart of the Sphinx.
"We are living on a planet in crisis. Never before in recorded history have so many people walked the surface of Earth, and never before has the human species achieved the power to destroy life on such a scale as we have reached today. As more and more people awaken to the co-creative power we share with one another and with Spirit, the potential to become active participants in determining the future of our world grows with the overall population. The potency of our thoughts, intentions and actions exponentially increases as people in growing numbers consciously combine forces -- we can now redirect and reinvent our evolutionary trajectory."
