Rewiring the System

Was Osiris Meditating When He Was Scattered Throughout the World?

One thread of this story is written by Plutarch.  Another view is from the Pyramid Texts which describe early conceptions of an afterlife in terms of eternal travelling with the sun.

It is the story of you and Osiris merging the light of life in a regal form aspect.  Sit up and walk tall in your life since life is not a dress rehearsal!  Enjoy yourself and smile!

As I said in earlier posts, we. each one of us is but a wisp of light energetic consciousness informing the King or Queen of our form existence.  As light freely moves it  often will chose to regenerate the form and give ‘it’ New Life.   A cult of Osiris, recognizing the aspect of regeneration and re-birth tries to get people to realize and work within the concept of immortality.

Plutarch recounts one version of the myth surrounding the cult in which Set, (Osiris’ brother) fooled Osiris into getting into a box, which he then shut, had sealed with lead, and threw into the Nile.  The use of sarcophagi are based on this box in this myth.  If it weren’t for Osiris what would many cultures do with the no longer used form bodies?

The story emphasizes Osiris’ wife, Isis, as she searched for his remains until she finally found him embedded in a tree trunk, which was holding up the roof of a palace in  Byblos on the Phoenician coast.  Osiris’ soul, or rather his Ba, was occasionally worshipped in its own right,  Isis managed, with her own effort, to remove the coffin from its stuck position  and open it.  She found that her effort to save him was for naught since Osiris was already dead. She used a spell she had learned from her father and brought him back to life for one last union so he could impregnate her.  He lived only for that short time then died again. Isis hid his body in the desert.  A short gestation period of some months, and she gave birth to Horus.

While she was raising Horus, Set was hunting one night and came across the body of Osiris. Enraged, he tore the body into fourteen pieces and scattered them throughout the world.

Isis gathered up all the parts of the body, less the phallus (which was eaten by a fish thereafter considered taboo by the Egyptians) and bandaged them together for a proper burial. The gods were impressed by the devotion of Isis and resurrected Osiris as the god of the underworld. Because of his death and resurrection, Osiris is important to understand the point of some human suffering. I hope you can see that everything is connected as suffering is part of transforming and renewing. It is the basis of studying scripture of every philosophy and theology. If not for Osiris would any of us get up and go about understanding our own lives?  Osiris also draws each of us into the mysteries of our human family and the very stream of life that includes all beings.

I was told recently by a Clergy friend, that Ann Rice writes in, Interview With A Vampire,  about the first vampire originated when a person drank of the blood of Isis and Osiris!

Last week was the end of the month of Ramadan, today is the Day Of Repentance , and  an Animal Release Day in other belief systems. We are near the apex of renewal. We are able to regenerate at this moment,  if not our forms then our philosophies to bring our many facets and divergent parts together and give new meaning to our day today and the other 364 days of our year.
