I wrote this article only after I conducted a private poll of everyday ordinary people (30) and simply asked the question "Have you ever heard of The Flower Of Life?" Of those included in the Poll only a handful (five) had and of those only two could accurately describe what it is. I was more than a little taken back by this and decided that I should write an article that described exactly what it is.
Without exploring the more profound aspect of this symbol, I set about just keeping to the facts and what is more commonly known. This symbol that not only describes the cycle of life but includes sacred geometry, known as the Platonic Solids. It also includes the Golden Ratio or Golden Means by showing the Vesica Piscis.
I also found that it in essence includes 22 circles of various sizes, 19 of the same radius and three that encompass the entire shape as well as one shape embedded in the overall design. As many of you may know the Pythagoreans held the number 22 as a sacred number as it relates to our DNA and musical theory, what is known as the Infinite Harmony.
It has two embedded designs that pertain to our spiritual enlightenment the Seed of Life and the Tree of Life, which describe the cycles of all life. The Platonic Solids, also included in the design by connecting straight lines to the points where the circles cross each other, are known as the building blocks of our Universe.
It is a relatively short article (less than 1,500 words) and simply describes the basic facts, for more on the subject one can go to Amazon.com and purchase The Secret Flower Of Life by Drunlavo Melchizedek parts one and two.
What this article really shows is that our ancient ancestor were much more highly sophisticated intellectually and spiritually than they are given credit for and that a certain amount of esoteric knowledge has purposely been with held from our education system.
