There's Something FISHY About ALL THIS!! (The Advaitic Miracle of The Vesica Piscis)

"De-Fractured Fairy Tales" .... or the Sacred Geometry of Genesis, "times One" ... the Advaitic miracle of the Vesica Piscis.

The Vesica Piscis is one of the most simple, elegant, and geometrically (not to mention gematrically - the mystical letter-number system of the Kabbalah) sophisticated consciousness symbols ever created ... and one of the most mysteriously global.

Known primarily in Christianity and Western esoteric traditions, the Vesica Piscis is also popular under a different name, in the Advaitic yogic-tantric traditions of India:

Vesica Piscis literally means "bladder of a fish" (a fitting name, considering the image, above .... and one strangely reminiscent of the Sanskrit term matsyodara ... "fish belly" ... which gave name to the famous guru Matsyendranath).

"In his monumental work Tantraloka, Abhinavagupta cryptically refers to the term matsyodara:

'On the level of the highest kundalini is the emissional power which is beautiful because it contains within itself the vibration; there the yogin should repose in the condition of the belly of the fish.'"

The following excerpt outlining the embedding of the Vesica Piscis into the Torah (Bereshith), aka the Old Testament (Genesis), along with the unified field of awareness to which it points, was published originally at

"We can consider, for example, a Vesica Piscis - one of the most important figures in sacred geometry. A vesica with a width of 26 - IHVH (the Creator), has a height of 45, which is the gematria value of the man he created ADM - Adam. The difference between God and man is 45 - 26 = 19. This is the value of the woman created as a companion for Adam, ChVH - 'Eve'. In this way the sacred vesica defines the relationship between the Creator and mankind. 

God's primal act of creation is encapsulated by the first verse of Genesis. The Hebrew words here - BRAShITh BRA ALHIM ATh HShMIM VATh HARTz - have a value of 2701. Among the many interesting properties of this number is the fact that it comprises the sum of 26 squared (676) and 45 squared (2025) - hence the combination of God and Adam. This means that the 26 by 45 rectangle enclosing the vesica of creation has a diagonal of the square root of 2701. 

In addition to this, the circle within which the rectangle may be precisely drawn has a circumference of 163, and by this means can symbolise that which was created: AaVLM HZH - 'This World'. It is also a fact that the area of the rectangle is equal to that of a square with a perimeter of 139: the value of - GN ALHIM - the Garden of Eden. Furthermore, the difference between 2025 and 676, gives the value of GN ALHIM when the final letters N and M are counted high - 1349. At the same time, the area of the rectangle is equal to that of a circle with a radius of 19 - ChVH - Eve.

There are unfathomable mysteries in the gematria of Genesis and this but a gleam from the crest of the tip of a very large iceberg."

Why is this important?

Because it highlights the reality that one of the best-known symbols of both Christianity and esoteric mysticism, was encoded into the original Torah, aka the Old Testament of the Bible, in a manner that inescapably illustrates the reality that the symbolism of God and Man, of Adam and Eve, and of the relationship between God and the single couple represented by Adam and Eve .... was never intended to be be understood as anything other than facets of a single, non-dual awareness-self.
