48. Soul Tree – Third Eye – Oneness – Cosmic Tree
The Soul Tree reminds us to see with our heart instead of our eyes. By seeing the world through the lens of our soul we can see that we are interconnected to all. We are no longer separated by the stories we hold in our minds but by what we feel in our hearts. The Cosmic Tree of oneness reminds us that this connection we seek is forever within us and around us.
This search for connection inspired the epic stories seen in the stars. Homer (Greek Poet – c. 850 BCE) is credited with writing the lliad and the Odyssey. He created a pantheon of mythical deities who ruled over the heavens and earth. These Titans & Olympians became known as living deities who “watched” over us.
The Cosmic Tree also known as the Axis Mundi or World Tree run through the center of Earth, connecting us to the center of the Milky Way. The Anima Mundi or World Soul connects us to the universal soul. This mythical tree of our soul anchors us to stars and planets within the vastness of space. The seven planets seen with the naked eye, were known as the “seven wandering ones” who watched over us. For this reason, the number seven became sacred and inspired the seven days of the week as well as the seven colors of the rainbow. Each planet is named for the deity that inspired it.
