The Real Da Vinci Code The Vitruvian Man, The Last Supper And Wholeness-mia farrow

UnCategorized Leonardo said it best: "The outstretched arms and legs of a man form a square and a circle: the square symbolizes the solid physical world and the circle the spiritual and eternal. Man bridges the gap between these two worlds." -Leonardo Da Vinci, "The Magical Proportions of Man" Leonardo Da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man (the Da Vinci Man with four arms and four legs in a square and circle) is the most popular secular symbol in the world. My ten years of research suggests that the Vitruvian Man is a universal symbol for greater love, relationships, success, health and the new age 21st century paradigm of indivisible wholeness, the paradigm for world peace. The New Renaissance! The Da Vinci Man is a universal translator between scientific models (represented by the Da Vinci Man in the square) and religious symbols (represented by the Da Vinci Man in the circle). Therefore, the Vitruvian Man (Da Vinci Man) is a bridge between science and religion. There are amazing similarities between the sacred geometry of the Da Vinci Man, Yin-Yang, Star of David, Tree of Life, Christian Cross and Angels. A Miracle of the Last Supper The refectory (dining hall) at the Santa Maria delle Grazie, where the Last Supper is painted, was bombed during WWII in 1943. The Last Supper was protected by sandbags and miraculously survived unscathed. The refectory was rebuilt after the war, and a twenty-year restoration of the Last Supper was begun. Centuries of poor quality restorations were removed and, in 1987, the Last Supper, very close to what Leonardo originally intended, was revealed. The Embrace of the Divine Feminine Within Each Man And the Divine Masculine Within Each Woman What does the figure of John represent in Leonardos version of the Last Supper? Is John Mary Magdalene or someone else? Does the Da Vinci Person represent the embrace of our masculine and feminine nature? The Da Vinci Person is actually a secret code that represents the integration of each persons feminine with his or her masculine nature. The masculine anchor, represented by the Da Vinci form with arms outstretched, is balanced by the feminine flow, represented by the Da Vinci form with arms uplifted. Any good marriage is also an embrace or union of masculine and feminine. In a successful marriage a man learns to support his wife’s needs and a woman learns to support her husband’s needs. A great marriage feels like the Da Vinci form, with four arms and four legs working as one. Life be.es easier. Central to the teaching of the book, The Da Vinci Code, John is actually a representation of Mary Magdalene. The fact that the figure of John is an almost mirror image of Jesus in (a) position, and (b) clothing, and that (c) their mutual position outlines an M representing marriage, does support the closeness of this figure with Jesus. Although it cannot be proven that Jesus was married to Mary Magdalene, I believe there is an even more important message that Leonardo is trying to convey: the embrace of both our Divine Masculine and Feminine nature. This message is immediate and relevant to everyone. Judaism (Adonai Elohim), Hinduism (Shiva-Shakti) and Taoism (Yin-Yang) accept the concept of the Divine as half male and half female. Christianity accepts a Divine relationship between Many and Jesus. Does the Eastern Orthodox Church attribute feminine qualities to the Holy Spirit? In Judaism (Kabbalah) the Holy Spirit is represented by the feminine Shechinah, the Bride Sabbath or Presence of God. The concept of the feminine as Divine has been resurrected by the Catholic Church in the sense that Jesus and Mary are considered to be close in heaven. Jesus is married to the Church, which is represented by Mary. Also, Pope John Paul II honored Mother Mary and raised her status considerably. The black Madonna is revered in Poland, and Pope John Paul II credits Mother Mary, as Fatimah, with saving his life. The Rosary worship of Mary as intercessor was actually begun by St Dominic. The Dominicans inhabited the Santa Maria del Grazie, the Church where Leonardo painted the Last Supper. Unfortunately, in 591 AD, Pope Gregory popularized the myth that Mary Magdalene was a prostitute. This was done through a misinterpretation of the biblical text. The account of Mary Magdalene is juxtaposed to the story of a woman who was a prostitute. This mistaken notion has been corrected. The Catholic Church ruled, in 1969, that Mary was not a prostitute. She was the Apostle to the Apostles. However, a great deal of damage had already been done regarding the representation of the feminine in the Christian church. For centuries women, though honored by the church, were not accorded equal status with men. This further degraded the image of the feminine, already suspect with the interpretation of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. This repression of the feminine is also brutal to men as it disallows men to identify with their own feminine nature. This leads to clarity without .passion and a lack of kindness in the world. The inner nature of the masculine is feminine. The inner nature of the feminine is masculine. Lack of identification with our male/female counterpart cuts us off from our inner nature and destroys our inner peace. A person’s embrace of their masculine and feminine nature is a natural and healthy part of spiritual growth. As we grow older, men be.e softer and women be.e clearer. The strong Grandmother and kindly, laid back Grandfather is a natural progression in human personal growth. If, as modern psychologists believe, our nature is half masculine and half feminine, a total embrace of both aspects is needed in order to achieve inner peace. This is the union of the anima and animus of Carl Jung and the embrace of the Yin-Yang within. If a person is cut off from the union of the masculine and feminine nature inside them, it leads to a disintegration of the personality. However, if a person embraces both their feminine and masculine nature, it leads to integration, inner peace and spiritual growth. Only this embrace will lead to peace on earth and good will towards all. This integration of our masculine and feminine nature is represented in the union of the two forms of the Da Vinci Person.
