The rainbow is really there, but it’s not where it appears to be. And the energy which the rainbow focuses on its observer is every bit as real and magical as the symbols we’ve been able to conjure for it’s significance. 🙂 Nice clip!!
The issue is this. What the average 20th century man was told about rainbows does not approach their subtler significance. To approach these, one must understand what Bailey-DK calls “the mystery of Brahma” or the “secret of the third aspect. (Page 872 in A Treatise on Cosmic Fire) Properly translated, this is the nature of the tsela in Genesis, the “day of rest” referred to in the bible. It’s treated as the 7th stage in the I Ching, the stage of return rather than the “day of rest”. And it describes the very nature of the continuum from which matter and energy are born.
You found this in Timaeus, and even though it’s required reading in many schools the concept is so formidable, that precious few ever grok it. In reality, the light that is focused on you from the rainbow, indicates alterations taking place in your disposition to the Solar logos.
The light which appears to shine from the Sun is more properly understood as a vector through which you are carried through time. Walter Russell called this the secret of light, and reflection, diffraction, and color perception are all subordinate phenomena.
Owen Barfield undoubtedly knew Ralph Waldo Emerson; did he have anything to say about that fountainhead of American thought? Do you?
