Te Manawa (The Heart) Hawaiikirangi (Sky above Hawaiiki or Heaven) Te Ao (The World) translation; The heart of heaven the heart of the world.
Shall be God-given not come simply from whakapapa and this office has been filled
God chooses, not man-kind, when it comes to what God will deliver
Men think in the mind-set of a male beyond all others
God thinks in creation which is laid upon the Mother
In Lemuria and Atlantis, Aquarius was known as the “Gateway” because it was seen to be the opening for humanity to re-enter it’s Divine State. The gateway is the heart, The heart is the gate. The symbol for Aquarius in those ancient days was a woman seated on a throne, with her left hand resting between the horns of a bull, and her right hand upraised, holding a califar, or Sword of Light. Behind the woman stood a man, wearing a crown of 12 stars. He is placing a crown with one brilliant star suspended above it upon the head of the woman.
The symbolic representation is thus:
The woman represents cosmic intelligence placed upon the throne of “Divine Knowing.” Divine Knowing is differentiated from cosmic intelligence as being the individuated experience of the latter. The woman’s left hand, which represents the feminine quality associated with the ability to feel and sense within the heart. The bull is the symbol of the Zodiacal sign of Taurus, which was identified by the ancients as the most “earthly” of the Zodiacal stellar houses. It was during the reign of Taurus upon the earth that the overthrow of the Priestess-Oracles in the Lemurian Temples of Melchizedek occurred. In addition, within those Temples, it was in the sanctuaries which were dedicated to working with the Zodiacal sign of Taurus, that the primary overthrow occurred. Thus, the sign of Taurus was overlaid with the energetic signature for the fallen Feminine Pillar on the earth. So from this perspective you can see that in the symbolic picture I have related to you, the Divine Feminine is reclaiming and balancing that which she lost in the ‘Fall’ as she places her hand between the horns of the bull. The Restoration of the female authority.
The bull and cow were sacred to the ancient Lemurians, having been symbols of the Sacred Solarius, or Great Central Sun. These animals were used by them for the purpose of sacred rites having to do with solar resurrection and purification. The Lemurian ceremonies did not harm or damage these divine creatures in any way, those types of sacrificial ceremonies came along in later times as a result of the loss of the true spiritual knowledge. The Bull carried the Sun between its horns as a symbol of the Divine Male expression, which then infused the divine feminine (the Cow) with its rays. In turn, the Cow gave birth to the Bull, who again would carry the Sun between its sacred horns for the Earth. Thus the female in this symbology, holds both ‘Power’ (the Bull of the Sun in the Realm of the Earth) and ‘Glory’ (the califar – divine appointment by the Greater Solar Logos).
The right hand of the woman sustains the sacred califar, the Sword of Light, which represents the Greater Solar Logos. It was also identified with a beam of energy projected from the solar plexus as a combined force of all seven chakras, and then could be projected through the palms of the hands as well. In later periods of Lemuria and Atlantis, symbolic swords were created that were then charged with “Light” through sacred procedures. To the people in those eras, these Light Swords were a symbol of “divine appointment.” The individuals who were privileged to possess a califar, were the “anointed ones”; those who directly served the authority of the most Holy Heavenly Host.
The man standing behind the woman is called the “King of the Mazzaroth,” (Mazzaroth is hosted by the system of 12 heavens in our Zodiac) an aspect of the Adam Kadmon that is still active through the Light-imaging thresholds of the Zodiac. He is placing the crown of the 13th aspect, or 13th Zodiacal sign, upon the head of the woman, and thus is acknowledging her as the threshold to the Greater Kingdom of the Mazaloth (Mazaloth is a higher system of 13 heavens).
Some authorities state that it was the manawa (heart) of Hine which Maui strove to possess himself of. Manawa is the material heart, or the breath. The manawa (heart) is the origin and seat of all knowledge, power, intellectuality. It imparts strength or vigour to the emotions and thinking-power of man. It is the origin of strength, physical and mental. The eight pu manawa of man are what we should term eight talents.
As old Tamarau of Tuhoe watched a man dispose of three large glasses of beer in quick succession he said, “Ko te manawa o te pakeha, he pia”—i.e., “Beer is the source of the white man’s strength (or vigour). Manawa is also used in another sense. In speaking of a child recently dead a man said, “The manawa ora has departed, the ahua (semblance) alone remains.” Here, I take it, the manawa ora means the breath of life. Again, when the notorious Makurata case occurred at Galatea the kuia said to one who vainly tried to save her from the Pu Taewa and Christianity, “You are my manawa ora.” Here the term really meant “salvation” or “hope”–that is, the one who gave her strength.
In the myths and legends of the Hervey Islands, Vatea is located near the beginning of their national existence. First of all the Hervey Islanders place Te-ake-ia-roe (The root of all existence). Then there came upon the ancient world Te Vaerua (The breath, or The life). Then came the god time–Te Manawa roa (The long ago). Then their creation legends locate Vari, a woman whose name means “the beginning,” a name curiously similar to the Hebrew word “bara,” “to create,” as in Gen. i. 1.
