The Fires of Nemesis and the Nemes of God


Fires rage around Athens and the 2,500 year old remnants of the Temples of Rhamnus. In particular the Sanctuary of Nemesis.


Nemesis is the spirit of divine punishment against those who succumb to hubris. The one who gives what is due.

Rhamnus is also a plant, commonly known as Buckthorn. In the past it was known as a medicinal plant as well as a powerful purgative.


The plants are helping us purge our inner Nemesis.



A generation's final journey begins.

Tommy: The Wikipedia page for Nemesis says this: "The Romans equated the Greek Nemesis as Invidia"

Wiki: "In Roman mythology, invidia was the sense of envy or jealousy"

Half of the spiral eye is in a "Green Zone" square. Another green zone:


Seeing... Green?

Jim:

A burning Rhamnus Bush.

Moses, the man that sees Red also sees a burning bush, which turns out to
not to be burnt after the fact.

I guess what he is seeing is the spiritual fire.

(Grapevine = Ayahuasca vine = vine of the soul = seeing soulfire)


Jake:

Just posted this stuff at Twitter then realized how perfectly it entrained with this post.
Dreamed yesterday that the pharaohs striped headdress or nemes represented the blue gold veil of the holy of holies.

This is my favorite image of Tut. I borrowed an x-girlfriends post card from Egypt to get the scan.It is the second of three coffins surrounding the mummy like Russian dolls.

To say the Pharaoh was literally God manifested on Earth is very, very, very close to Gods honest Truth.

This entrains with nemesis and the mention of Moses who in the bible interacts with Pharaoh and esoterically is thought to have been a Pharaoh (Akhenaton/Thutmosis or whoever) himself.

Perhaps the Pharaohs body was considered a microcosm of the Holy Temple and his attire fashioned accordingly.

A friend on Facebook just noticed that nemeS is Semen backwards...
