The world of imagination is the world of Eternity
–William Blake, A Vision of the Last Judgment
“… the loss of imagination, of eternal vision, has left humankind prey to the petty competitive interest that dominate and divide our planet – materialism, racism, nationalism.” –Jose Arguelles/Transformative Vision
British visionary poet William Blake wrote about Albion as the “Angel of Presence” in his epic poem, Jerusalem (1804). Of course Albion is also the poetic name of Great Britain.
This past Day out of Time at the Shire Farm in Tetford, England, my attention was turned back toward Albion and the awakening of the earth. See previous blog: https://1320frequencyshift.com/2017/08/15/shire-farm-earth-geomancy-and-day-out-of-time/
Blake describes Albion as the “Human Form Divine”, a giant who is the blueprint of all men and women. This giant has long been sleeping, but is now awakening.
Blake’s main theme is human redemption and the return to our true universal state – eternal vision. He used the power of art and imagination to transform what he calls the “Satanic Mills” (dark forces) in the “New Jerusalem” (world of light).
As Blake tells it, Albion has a high rank in the spiritual worlds and is favored by God. Upon incarnating on earth he fell into a state of amnesia and forgot his divine origin (familiar story).
Blake writes of Albions suffering:
“In a dark & unknown Night/Outstretch’d his Giant beauty on the ground in pain & tears,”
Being trapped in the density of matter Albion experiences the “seven diseases of the soul” and feels “sick to death” from “horrible falsehoods” spread by his sons and daughters.
Author and Planetary Geomantist Richard Leviton in his book Santa Fe Light, gives the vision of Albion “chained to a table in the pit of the Earth, similar to the way the Greeks envisioned Kronos (Father Time) exiled and jailed in the golden halls of Ogygia”.
As each facet of humanity comes to light, Albion begins to awaken and is joined with Vala, his “Bride and Wife in great Eternity.” Vala personifies Nature (or Gaia).
As Leviton points out, Albion is the body for the awakening of the noosphere. The union of Albion and Vala is the symbolic wedding of spirit and matter that lights up and turns on the noosphere.
Albion and Tollan
O Earth, O Earth, Return!
Arise from out the dewy grass;
Night is worn,
And the morn
Rises from the slumberous Mass.
William Blake, “Songs of Experience” – 1794
All archetypes, myths and legends ultimately merge.
Albion’s awakening also coincides with the awakening of Tollan, the archetypal template of the Absolute.
In the Popol Vuh and other Mayan texts relating to Quetzalcoatl, Tollan represents the paradigmatic kingdom and the world of enlightened government. Every culture has its version of Tollan, such as Shambhalla.
Blake speaks of Albion bringing a gift for the world: the “lovely emanation” of Jerusalem.
In the Western tradition, Tollan relates to the heavenly city or city of New Jerusalem as foretold in the Book of Revelations.
Tollan and Galactic Maya
According to Cosmic History, the radiogenetic codes projected through the template of Tollan seeded the culture and mindset of the Galactic Mayans at the time of their earthly incarnation.
Ancient texts also have their coded origin in the archetypal template of Tollan.
These texts carry seed code templates that instructed our ancestors to build cities, urban centers and ceremonial centers. This is how the blueprint of Tollan was incarnated radiogenetically in the DNA of the Mayan and the Toltec people, the Nahuatl.
Cosmic History Volume 6: Book of the Timespace was revealed largely through the channel of Tollan:
“…Tollan, as described in this volume, serves as a focalizing point, sending down transmissions of Cosmic History to create specific programs that assist human evolution. These are wholeness and totality programs. — Arguelles/Forward: Book of the Timespace
Tollan can also be thought of as one of the star bases that projects information through our Sun, and then into the planetary field.
Primal Tollan: Journey to the Center
The Popol Vuh says Tollan is the place where the gods appeared. This indicates the destiny of the journey toward this primal Tollan, where the people travel onward until they reach Tollan- Zuvuya (as it is sometimes referred).
Zuvuya is the center point where all memory of past, present, future meet.
The Annals of Cakchiquels describes how peoples of every direction came to Tollan (or Tulan) seeking knowledge.
Tollan, then, can be interpreted as the universal core that each of us must first access from within.
To arrive at Tollan is to arrive at our original blueprint where knowledge is derived. It is the God Center that is reached through vibrational purity and is not based on religion, race or tradition. Any sincere person from whatever background can access it.
The Popol Vuh says that the people leave Tollan in the night looking for the first dawn. They are led by the four elders or star prophets, the Balam Quitze.
When they arrive at the four crossroads: the red road, the white road, the black road and the blue-green road, they each take one of these roads and are each appointed a different direction.
The Balam take the people looking for the first dawn. When the dawn arrives, Tollan is reduced to memory.
This memory can be reactivated through the imaginal realm, art and music.
The Popol Vuh says “the people shall return to Tollan.”
And similar to the prophecy of Quetzalcoatl’s return, Blake promises that Albion shall arise again.
“The time will arrive/
When all Albion’s injuries shall cease,
and when we shall/
Embrace him, tenfold bright, rising from his tomb in immortality.”
