Dragon Lineage: Mind, Memory and Being

Dragon Lineage: Mind, Memory and Being

I've shared the following poem (see below) before describing my journey of consciousness into manifest Being. I wrote this poem over three decades ago. Here today, I relate that experience of consciousness, of Mind and Memory and Being, to the ancient (pre-Christian) symbol known as the Vesica Piscis.

Within the spheres of Mind and Memory are shown the percolating pivots of consciousness both observing and observed by the whole self experiencing between "depths of opposite observation."  Within the Eye of Being, are shown my birth runes, namely Ing (my father rune) and Hagall (my mother rune), which capture consciousness into incarnation. In form, the Ing rune is the ta'amim Etnachta and Yerach ben Yomo combined. The horizontal radiant of Hagall extends beyond incarnate Being. The "shadowy tail-end" of timeless remembrance and remembrance of "times before" still kissing both mind and memory are represented by the squiggly line Serpentiform of Old European paleolithic cave art (on the left) and the double Darga of the historical Hebrew ta'amim (on the right). The "percolating pivots" and "hard pauses which startle into vision" are represented by the Zigzag of Old European paleolithic cave art and the Shalshelet of the historical Hebrew ta'amim. (It is noted that the Hebrew ta'amim may themselves find their most archaic roots in the symbols of Old European paleolithic cave art.)

Interestingly, the Vesica Piscis, with its Serpentiform and double Darga tail-ends, calls to mind the ta'am Karne Parah. Together with the Yerach ben Yomo, these ta'amim suggest connection to the 13th tribe known in Abrahamic folklore as the Levites, the tribe which encompasses all Israel - conceivably referring to all descendants of the Y-DNA macrohaplogroup IJK. The Vesica Piscis itself symbolizes the Great Mother Goddess.

The Serpentiform and double Darga carry the sacred serpent dragon energy of my ancient old world ancestors. I am a Dragon Spirit and the daughter of the Old European Dragon Clan in both my ancestral paternal (Y-DNA macrohaplogroup IJK, arose approximately 47,000 to 60,000 ybp) and maternal (mtDNA haplogroup U, arose around 46,500 to 50,000 ybp) lineages. The antiquity of the Dragon Clan extends into remote prehistory, and is supported by the mythic importance of the dragon to both European and Asian peoples.

first rhythms ever plunge, eternal hosts driven into life
drawing through a field of topographic brilliance
where judgment lovingly flows, churning out whole stones
resting against asymmetries trying, like diamonds in chaos
proto-perception foams, over annihilating operations
and from it, dark bursts of lucidity finely entwine
coarse grains of almost something, almost yet sufficient
the silent rush of yet nothing slides, wildly as percolating pivots
diligently thread through it, casting clarity
upon myriads, hard pauses startle into vision
projecting arrays without mass, strings of confluency
impressing discovery, a shadowy tail-end lingers
between depths of opposite observation
iterating embraces of many meanings like quasi-quanta
gathering functions about the head and, and
spinning spectra, pushing forward, yearning toward home
not knowing, yet only knowing
as some featureless reach edging edges stretches out
the magnetic sweet dance
where divisions collapse like crystal caves
softly sprinkling the belly of the night divine
with bytes of thoughtbare kisses
extending the glorious field of apprehension

As Samhain approaches, and as we move deeper into the Season of Darkness, paint the sky with stars …
