Ezekiel's Wheel, the Mother Ship & the Zodiac

After writing Noah's Ark, the Zodiac, the 0/9 Number System & the Preservation of Knowledge, wherein I discussed nav, nau, no as etymological roots of the numbers 9 and 0 as well as the idea that the Vedic Manu could be understood to mean 'Mother Ship', a friend at the Theosophy Network sent me an email about the Nation of Islam's (NOI) Mother Ship prophecy. He wondered if there was some esoteric connection to be made between what I was writing about – the zodiac and the 9/0 number system – and NOI's 'Mother Ship' prophecy. My friend sent some informational links and as I looked into the matter, what became instantly clear is that the only connection is that the Nation of Islam, like Christians and much of humanity, have COMPLETELY 'missed the boat' when it comes to interpreting/understanding sacred writings based on the zodiac. The leaders of NOI interpreted the wheels described by Ezekiel (see below) to be prophecy of a UFO that would come and destroy white-America for all of its wicked ways, saving African-Americans from their subjugation.
1:3 The word of Yahweh came expressly to Ezekiel the priest, the son of Buzi, in the land of the Chaldeans by the river Chebar; and the hand of Yahweh was there on him.
1:4 I looked, and, behold, a stormy wind came out of the north, a great cloud, with flashing lightning, and a brightness round about it, and out of the midst of it as it were glowing metal, out of the midst of the fire.
1:5  Out of the midst of [the great cloud in the sky] came the likeness of four living creatures. ...
1:10
  As for the likeness of their faces, they had the face of a man; and they four had the face of a lion on the right side; and they four had the face of an ox on the left side; they four had also the face of an eagle. ...[underline emphasis added]
1:15
  Now as I saw the living creatures, behold, one wheel on the earth beside the living creatures, for each of the four faces of it.

1:16
  The appearance of the wheels and their work was like a beryl [a hexagonal crystal]: and they four had one likeness; and their appearance and their work was as it were a wheel within a wheel.
1:17
  When they went, they went in their four directions: they didn't turn when they went.
1:18
  As for their rims, they were high and dreadful; and they four had their rims full of eyes round about.
1:19
  When the living creatures went, the wheels went beside them; and when the living creatures were lifted up from the earth, the wheels were lifted up.
1:20
  Wherever the spirit was to go, they went; there was the spirit to go: and the wheels were lifted up beside them; for the spirit of the living creature was in the wheels. [
From Ezekiel, Chapter 1]
The NOI mother ship/mother plane prophecy, based on Ezekiel's wheel as described in the above Old Testament passages, is a great example of not only how people tend to misuse information to support their own agendas, but it is also a great example of how a loss of knowledge of the zodiac has left the door open for gross misinterpretation of ancient texts. If Elijah Muhammad or Louis Farrakhan and their followers had known that Ezekiel's description a wheel in the sky was unarguably a description of the Zodiac and its characteristic four fixed signs (Aquarius the Man, Leo the Lion, Taurus the Bull/Ox, and Scorpio the Eagle), then they would not have been able to use this Old Testament vision of the unified field of time and space as a rallying point for their collective grievances. Of course they would have found some other, rallying point if this one was not available; but the fact is, due to our collective ignorance of the zodiac (ignorance of its symbols and its true applications/purpose) the world's ancient texts and prophecies of coming ages and prophets or avatars  (including St. John's prophecy of the Apocalypse/New Age, and the Buddist prophecy of the return of Maitreya) have been radically misunderstood, mistranslated, mis-measured, misconstrued and misused across the globe so that few recognize the common 'universal' gnosis that lies waiting to be recognized by all factions of humanity.

Once we shed this ignorance and consent to see that which is right in front of our faces, constantly alluded to in our ancient mythologies, iconography and sacred texts, then the zodiac can be a true rallying point for collective participation and progress towards understanding our shared journey and our shared divinity.

The first video below is of Fard Muhammad speaking of the Mother Plane/UFO that will destroy the corrupt world; and the second is the Glide Ensemble (of Glide Memorial Church) singing "Ezekiel Saw The Wheel' which, strangely enough, a friend of mine put up on Facebook when I began writing this post about Ezekiel's wheel and its misinterpretation by religions. Readers should begin to wonder ... if the Old Testament description of the zodiac as the 'word of god' has been misunderstood to mean a world-destroying UFO (with few having any where with all to educated themselves about this misunderstanding) then what other complete distortions of this gnosis are floating around, contributing to the propagation of ignorance and violence? ... And wouldn't the world be a better place if the religious distortions STOPPED and the real subject matter (i.e. the zodiac) was studied and understood according to its true universal character or light? To see the same four fixed signs of the zodiac praised/referred to in the Rig Veda, link here.

  1. This is so foolish...speaking of a shared journey and shared divinity...why? Your ppl have never shared anything with blacks! Just cause Ezekiels wheel scares you your word play changes nothing...if only you all would have shared,there would be shared divinity...few of you are worthy.few of you will survive...you drag blks down so you live it up.Not much longer when left alone the cream rises to the top..believe what you will outcome doesn't change...its ordained..God is a fair God and to be feared....enjoy what u have left...what comes next is better for us. To RIDE OUT ON THE MOTHERSHIP WHILE YOU ALL ARE PILED UP IN A BURNING PIT WILL BE GRAND...Remember your article an interpretation then...

  2. One can only hope that it is not foolish to believe that dogmatic/ideological hatred, systematic repression and violence against others is an IGNORANCE that the human consciousness can recover from.

    The following excerpts from 'The New era has dawned ...'

    (http://puraniccosmologyupdated.blogspot.com/2011/08/new-era-has-dawned.html)

    discuss an all-inclusive upgrade of consciousness that is to be established during the current the Age of Aquarius.

    'The only imperatives of this [Aquarian] ‘wave’ are Freedom and Unity. These ideals reside in ALL human beings regardless of ideologies and dogmas. This is the new ‘exclusivism’ because freedom and unity are principles at the foundation of human consciousness and they exceed and extend beyond all sectarian, ideological boundaries of recent vintage. They can be suppressed for a while (in cosmic time), as witnessed in the last millennium, but they cannot be eradicated totally from the heart and mind of humanity.

    '... The Age of Aquarius is distinguished by its universal character. It is the Earth that is blessed to host this transformation of all her inhabitants, everywhere. We see this happening before our eyes. These facts make a mockery of doomsday prophecies concerning 2012 and speculations regarding ‘end time’. The universal zodiac of 12 of our civilsiation, rather than the Mayan time-reckoning, offers humanity a reliable key to the Vision, the true pre-Vision – that of the evolution of the human species which carries the world to the next stage: the Age of the supramental Truth-Consciousness.'
