Hello all,

In my meditations I am struggling to comprehend in myself the symbol of Agamemnon, the King. I understand quite easily that Achilles is a symbol related very closely to Samael, and expresses our war-like prowess on the battlefield of our self-liberation, but why is Achilles angry at Agamemnon in particular, why is there this strife between them?

Am I right in putting any King as a symbol of our mind? Like the Pharoah in the bible, and the Kings of Greek mythology such a Creon? And Queens being the heart, or the sex/body? What is the difference between the symbol of a King and a God in us?

Also, why is it that Achilles's weakness is in his heel, and that at the end of the battle of Troy he has to die?

On a side note, once again, thank-you so much for everything I have been given by you guys! I appreciate every moment of it, and treasure it greatly; I am by no means perfect, but you have given me humbleness, and the great gifts that come with spiritual work! My life was a downward spiral, but slowly, as heavy as my egos are, I am dragging myself up from the battleground. I have lacked the strength that a mighty warrior like Achilles has in abundance; thank the good Lord for VM Samael Aun Weor, he has inspired strength in my heart where there was very little my entire life.

All you guys are an inspiration.

Thank-you for guiding me towards the beauty of my god!

Peace.

Achilles is Tiphereth, a warrior bodhisattva from the ray of Mars. Agammenon is the ego or mind of any King (prince or Meleck of Tiphereth) who is proud of the initiate's powers and is jealous of them. A king can be of heaven or hell. Achilles is angry at Agammemnon just as any master is disdainful towards the personality and ego, the false king who lays claim to the spoils of the initiate's war.

Achilles is weak in the heel since the feet represent Malkuth on the tree of life. The symbol of Yesod are the sandals. Therefore, since Achilles is weak in the feet, he represents how any master can lose his or her invulnerability and immortality (originated from the waters of the river Styx) through the abuse of Yesod, through fornication.

Joyful in hope, suffering in tribulation, be thou constant in thy prayer.

Benedictis, qui venit in nomine Domini. Osanna in excelsis.

Thank-you, Benedictus.

I can relate to this wholeheartedly, as the first thing we face on our path is the ego reigning over our city. The battle of Troy is 10 years, the wheel of Samsara, and begins on the 9th year, which points me towards what it is we are facing with at the outset of our preliminary meditations. The plague that Apollo sends to the army of Archeans reminds me of the beginning of the Decameron, where there is a plague that has struck Florence, and the people are dealing with it in all the wrong ways, either avoiding it, by moving out of the city and neglecting it by living in the countryside, or by indulging as a consequence of it, but regardless of their choices, the winds blow the plague through the valleys, thus their lives are just as fatal as those who were riddled with the plague; maybe the answer was this rage that Achilles has, to confront his own ego, to have that strength to do so; the image here is to confront a King, a heavy task.

Hello!

I am wondering if you could help me with the symbols of Hector and Menelaus.

Helen is the spiritual soul, or Buddhi, or consciousness, who is her husband Menelaus? And what is the significance of her being stolen from him by Paris and taken to Troy?

Also, what is Hector as an archetype? What is the significance of Achilles fighting Hector?

Am I right in considering Troy to be our physicality?

Much thanks for your time :)

Peace.

Also, when Apollo inflicts the plague upon the Archaens, is this Apollo in the form of Apollyon?
