Sacred Geometry

“Meditate on the symbols I give thee. Keys are they, though hidden from men” (Emerald tablet of Thoth)

The term Sacred Geometry is used by archaeologists and anthropologists to incorporate the religious, philosophical, and spiritual beliefs around geometry, in various cultures during the course of human history. Sacred geometrical shapes are found everywhere in nature; they reveal the concept of oneness through geometry.

Sacred Geometry shows our true connection to the earth, how everything on this planet and around is essentially related. All life and energy has a pattern. Sacred Geometry helps show how nothing is random and all out actions are connected to a reaction. The following links give examples of these energy patterns and how they relate to our planet and all life that has and currently does flourish on it.

Sacred geometry is geometry used in the design of sacred architecture and sacred art. The basic belief is that geometry and mathematical ratios, harmonics and proportion are also found in music, light, and cosmology. This value system has been found even in human prehistory and is considered by some to be a cultural universal of the human condition. Sacred geometry is foundational to the building of sacred structures such as temples, mosques, megaliths, monuments and churches; sacred spaces such as altars, temenoi and tabernacles; meeting places such as sacred groves, village greens and holy wells and the creation of religious art, iconography and using “divine” proportions. Sacred geometry-based arts may also be ephemeral, such as found in sandpainting and medicine wheels. (Source)

In the ancient teachings of sacred geometry it is believed that the sacredness of everything in the universe can be described in terms of geometrical patterns coming from the hand of God. As unbelievable as that may seem, it can be illustrated with ample examples that indeed many unexpected things have a hidden geometry that is not obvious at first sight.

It is now believed that the Egyptians applied sacred geometry in the construction of the Great Pyramid and many other monuments. The Egyptians had two mystery-schools; one was called the left eye of Horus. This school taught the female principles of creation, about love and compassion. The other school was called the right eye of Horus and taught the intelligent male principles of creation; sacred geometry was a main subject.

Sacred geometry has also left its traces in other cultures such as in the gothic architecture of European churches and cathedrals (Chartres), the Parthenon in Athens, paintings by Leonardo Da Vinci and the Hindu classical dance. Sacred geometry has been preserved in circles of Freemasonry in utmost secrecy. (Source)
