Diary of Eternity

About one and a half week ago a publication in the Contemplationam series was completed with as title ‘Psi’. There the word ‘psyche’ was read as ‘psi-chi’ and from the forms of the corresponding Greeks characters a monogram was constructed consisting of a trident and a cross of two diagonal lines at the base of the trident. In correspondence with the symbolism of the years ago contemplated Christian chi-rho monogram the cross of chi was considered to represent the cross of matter. And like the ellipse of rho was thought to symbolize spirit that is nailed on the cross of matter, so psi the symbolism of the soul was given that in the psi-chi monogram also is nailed to that cross. The psi-chi monogram, thus was contemplated, symbolizes the soul in incarnation.

In the morning of a few days ago was not worked on a new own publication but a book was proofread for a publisher of spiritual books. For this there was seated before a sliding door closet in which an extension shelf was placed on desk level to thus serve as a desk table that when closing off the work could be neatly put away in a closed closet. Above the extendable shelf four fixed shelves were placed whereby on the first one counted from below plastic drawer boxes with things therein were placed.

When the concentration on the proofreading weakened and the eyes became tired the proofreading was let go of and was relaxed leaned back against the rather vertical set back of the desk chair. The eyes were moved away from the computer screen and found a resting point on the upper of two left placed drawer boxes of the bottom fixed shelf. This was the box that also contained the CD-ROMs with collected works.

Because the boxes were semi-transparent the front CD-ROM could well be seen. It was the much used CD-ROM of Alice Bailey with on it her twenty-four books of esoteric philosophy. The import thereof for the own education was acknowledged and the eyes came to rest on the Lucis Trust logo that was printed in white on a blue background at the right bottom. An amazement shot through the consciousness and made as in a lightning strike all thoughts fly off. The so well known logo of Lucis Trust showed a triangle with therein a lightly adjusted trident and a cross of two diagonal lines. The logo of the publisher of the books that were so intensely valuated contained a psi-chi monogram!

Put back together from the amazement soon the thoughts did return to still interpret the triangle as a symbol of the threefold spirit, however on the background the amazement continued its presence.
