For over the best part of a year I have been trying to comprehend what our elders have been trying to teach us about Money.
I have decoded many of the meanings from movies like ‘Being There’, Eyes Wide Shut and Lolita all which have occult references to money.
Recently the penny dropped and I have a far better understanding of why I have felt so uneasy about societies approach to money. In some of my writing I have felt a bit self-righteous when speaking against money, but I still felt that I was going to find something important here.
Some years ago I was working in a Corporate Job in Sydney for an insurance company. I could sense a particular kind of evil which for me felt strange being in my own country and that evil is in large part was driven by money. Both the desire for it and the need to possess it for our very survival. During that time I said to myself that there is no circumstance by which I would comply with the evil I could sense around me.
I’ve always found being entrepreneurial easy but instead of making mass amounts of money my objectives have always been about doing something good or growing something big. I assumed the wealth would follow, but we have been working in an environment specifically structured to not benefit people that do good, that is something that will have to change.
As business people we should all feel uneasy when our attempts to build positive truthful businesses are met with resistance. Wouldn’t a world full of robust businesses directed by goodness and truth be exactly what we need to make the world right for the next generation. But look around you and what do you see? A business world where all of the leaders are complicit with the most heinous of lies. Why is it that there has been a generation where to succeed one must participate in deceptions. Maybe the answer lies in the Money.
So the first party of understanding the etymology is Money is easy.
The word money comes from the name of the Roman goddess Juno (Juno Moneta).
This is where things get tricky.
One of the most complex biblical mysteries is Mystery Babylon or the whore of Babylon. People make all kinds of suggestions as to what the whore of Babylon is. For example, the whore of Babylon is Saudi Arabia etc etc…
The bible verse goes like this:
And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters:
2 With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.
3 So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.
4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:
5 And upon her forehead was a name written, Mystery, Babylon The Great, The Mother Of Harlots And Abominations Of The Earth.
6 And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.
7 And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns.
One of the better suggestions I have heard is that the Whore of Babylon is infact the Moon.
Juno Moneta could also be considered as a Moon Goddess.
Babylon is interpreted by many as a world of chaos and sin. A world where people let vice triumph over human goodness.
We could interpret Babylon the whore of Babylon or the moon as a reference to false light.
So Money has a direct etymological connection to the Moon, Babylon or the false light. You could almost see money as a store of false light. You don’t have to get emotional about it. We as humanity need tools to store and transfer value. But the etymology is what it is.
In Gnostic cosmology the 7 planets that revolve around earth are all seen as false light. So it could be seen that if you remain in hell (Gnostic HAL) then your consciousness remains in ‘Hell’ or a world of false light.
The best way understand this is to study the energies and even the human chakras associated with these planets.
One of the most fascinating Saturn also known as the ‘lord of the rings’ is often associated with time and the material world. So through this we can see that one way we can get closer to the light of God our creator is look past the material world and our tendency to comply with the false authority of time and forgo our natural tendency to do what is good or right at any point in time.
So we must pass the light of Babylon and the other planets in order to connect with our creator.
This is why we can see the Whore of Babylon on many ancient Roman coins. They were telling people right on the coin to beware of money, the moon or the influence of false light.
Now, for those who see the moon as a feminine energy which is common with many goddess figures don’t lament. As a Gardner and plant grower I love the energy of the moons light as well. But the way we should see it as humans is that we need to reach for higher lights in our consciousness.
The way we as humanity must overcome Babylon is ensure our businesses make decisions beyond the influence of money. This is how we have run our businesses which has been hard.
So my earlier preaching or chastisement of the men in our society who have sacrificed truth for money has not been inaccurate. All men seek to build great things. But we must not pursue money at the expense of truth and goodness. This can be difficult but the more people who struggle to achieve this the more it will become the norm and the harder it will be for those who practice deception to prosper.
My view is that humanity is already well positioned to end the tyranny of Babylon in our society. Many people even in my native Australia have seen through the false lights perpetuated by our media. Every decision that we make as humanity that is seperate from desire for money or material success alone helps end the influence of the whore of Babylon on earth. Then we as humanity can return to the light of our creator.
