Description of the Religious Ball Court
Commonly, this precinct is called the "ball field," yet this is a mistaken name.
Let us recall history: in London, in the nineteenth century, a jobless tramp had the idea of inflating a piece of rubber. Thereafter, he thought to cover it with a piece of leather, and wonder what could be the great finale of his idea. Thus, the outcome was a football. Subsequently, he started to kick his swollen leather ball. He seemed to experience good pleasure by doing it, and in a few days many youngsters in London were doing the same thing. In the beginning, people were protesting, because they were breaking glass and trampling people. The newspapers were also protesting, yet they continued playing their "swollen baloney." Now, they want to see this London's vagabondage even within sacred matters.
Among the Mayans there was a liturgical ritual performed with a stone-ball. Each movement was carefully studied. The ritual represented the struggle between light and darkness, between the powers of light and the powers of darkness. These rituals were also practiced in the gothic temples, the cathedrals of the Middle Ages. This is a very carefully studied religious ceremony.
Modern people, who do not see anything but the swollen leather ball of the vagabond of London, want to see their "swollen baloney" in sacred matters. However, our simple logic invites us to reflect: How did they play football with a stone ball? How many broken knees? How many dead people? One single whack on the head by the ball, and death. One single whack on the knee and an obvious fracture, or crippled for the rest of their life. Hence, their assumption seems absurd.
So, this liturgical ritual existed, also in the gothic cathedrals of the Middle Ages. See for yourselves: the court has a tao cross shape, and there are temples around.
Samael Aun Weor
His name is Hebrew סמאל און ואור, and is pronounced “sam-ayel on vay-or.” You may not have heard of him, but Samael Aun Weor changed the world. In 1950, in his first two books, he was the first person to reveal the esoteric secret about sex that was hidden in all the world’s great religions, and for that, accused of “healing the ill,” he was put in prison. Nevertheless, he did not stop. Between 1950 and 1977 he wrote sixty books, and inspired millions of people across the entire span of Latin America. A true example of compassion and selflessness, he dedicated his life to helping others.
