A new project in the making by Neil Hague
I’m currently writing and illustrating the third part of my Kokoro triology called Aeon Rising, with a huge focus on Atlantis, Mu and the invasion of Sophia Earth within this story. The project is in its early stages with much to do, but I am really excited about the way the book is unfolding. I am not giving too much away at this stage apart from the fact the ‘eagles’ play a huge role in this narrative, hence the recent image of Altair (below).
Altair (Aquilla) Jupiter
I’ve been researching Jupiter’s role in the so called ‘Clash of the Titans’ (as recorded in classical myth) and I’m building these concepts into the new narrative. Gnostic myth and the work of Immanuel Velikovsky is also inspiring me too. The book Worlds in Collision is a great read.
Jupiter or Jove was said to be the king of the gods and the god of ’sky’ and thunder in myth. Jupiter was also the chief deity of Roman state religion throughout the Republican and Imperial eras, until Christianity became the dominant religion of the Empire. It is Jupiter (with Saturn in the background) that presides over all Roman religion and sacrifice to the gods. Jupiter (or Zeus in Greek Myth) depicted as the Eagle (the sovereign ‘bird of birds’) clutching the Thunderbolt is another symbol found in the ‘esoteric’ symbols of empires from Rome to the Nazis, and of course the Eagle standard used by Rome through to modern empires can be found decorated into the pulpits of Christendom.
Jupiter is/was the god of the New World Order, a ‘good Sun’ and son to Saturn (Cronos). Both Jupiter and Saturn are massively connected, not least physically in terms of their size in our Solar system, but as ‘forces’, or vibrations that play a part in the ‘Illusion we call life on Earth’. My new project weaves together this connection, along with the lions of Regulus (Leo) and the Orion constellation, with much more besides. Gnostic teachings interpret Jupiter as a ‘good force’ and so do I in my narrative.
Statues of Jupiter as the Eagle can be seen with the child Ganymede (one of its Moons) at stately homes all over Britain and relate to the Jupiter and the Age of Aquarius.
The Romans regarded Jupiter as the equivalent of the Greek Zeus, and in Roman art, the myths and iconography of Zeus are adapted under the name Iuppiter. In the Greek-influenced tradition, Jupiter was the brother of Neptune and Pluto. Each presided over one of the three realms of the universe: sky, the waters, and the underworld. From this perspective the sky, the primordial waters (oceans) and the inner Earth and Underworld, where all connected. They were the place of ‘origins’ the home of the gods and the so-called planets or wanderers. Saturn of course has its own symbolism which I have covered many times in other blogs.
My work in recent months has seen me consider the myths of the Mahabharata or Mahābhārata, one of the two major Sanskrit epics of ancient India. And I am also focusing on Ancient Egypt along with the Epic Gilgamesh as a write my fictional take on these myths and legends. Not that I am comparing my projects to the likes of Tolkien’s work, but as an image-maker, story teller, I am fascinated by the power of the ‘myth’ in terms of it’s potential to ‘transform our perception’ of history. As Tolkien wrote in his book [about Saturn] Lord of the Rings; “And some things that should not have been forgotten were lost. History became legend. Legend became myth. And for two and a half thousand years, the ring passed out of all knowledge.” ― Galadriel in The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring.
Of course Tolkien used Eagle myths within his books, attributed to Gandalf and the connections between Vishnu and the eagle god Garuda as found in both Hindu and Buddhist mythology (above). My version of these combined forces appear in the Third book of Kokoro as the ‘Eagles of Uthorna’ (see below) and how they can appear to have an etheral body (aura) of an eagle. The eagles themselves came out of the body of Urza (Jupiter) in my narrative. As I write in the forth coming book;
“To the ancients, Aquila was also known as the ‘royal eagle’ of the young Sun Urza, also known as Jupiter by the priestesses of Sophia. It was said that Aquila’s talons carried mighty thunderbolts that could change worlds. The Eagle people were the direct descendants and the personification of the ‘electric thunder beings’ that always signalled changes in the solar tree (Solar System) if they were forced to fly. Imagine a predator appearing at the foot of the trunk of a great tree and as it stalked the tree, circled it, a great noise rose out of the branches above in the form of thousands of birds moving their wings in unison has they fled the predator below; such was the ‘sound and energy’ of the mighty eagle Altair and his warriors when they took to the heavens above the Solar Tree”.
While writing and researching for the narrative and characters in Aeon Rising, I am also finding intriguing correlations between what I often ‘perceive through my dreams’ and visions to be pivotal sources in providing good historical, archaeological information for the book. In a recent dream I was given the name Tanis or (San El-Hagar) as a source for the ‘ancient city location’ of a pre Atlantean temple. Much of my narrative in this new book is woven around the priests’ of Manu, the lion panthera leo priests and the keepers of the main temples of Atlan (Atlantis) and Ammon (North Western Lemuria). Tanis has an ancient temple also dedicated to Amun (Amon Ra) the Sun god. But which sun? Along with Montu, the (eagle) falcon-god of war, Amun was a main focus in the temples of ancient Egypt.
Much of my reference material comes from looking closely at the myths, deities and geographic locations connected to the ancient (‘pre-historic’) world. The connections to an ancient order of Lion Priests’ and Orion, Saturn and Leo is becoming clear to me as I write the book. So are the battles between ‘invading forces’ and lions’, eagles’ (men) and other creatures that are found in so much ancient art. Not least in the ancient Sumerian religion, and later in Akkadian (Assyrian and Babylonian), Hittite, Canaanite and other Mesopotamian clay and stone tablets (below).
I go into great detail about the types of forces that populate my stories in my bestiary Lions & Velons and I am literally creating an hierarchy and lineage of characters that can be seen to enhance the ‘world myths’ that already exist.
As always the lions’ feature in this story and so do the ‘lions of Orion’, Saturn and Leo. Note the references to Saturn and the Lion/Griffin in the coins and tablets found in Greece, Tyre, Lebanon and the Mediterranean (above). As I explain in the new book;
“An internal war between the Lions of Regal, caused by the Killipoth had turned some of these mighty beings into ambassadors for the darkness. As the war spread across the heavens the Lion priests or the Rezura of Orion (who were magicians of the highest order) were made to choose sides. The orders of Rezura split into two, the Panthera leo and the Jezura, the latter formed an alliance with the serpent Naga. The very nature of Orion’s part in the creation of ‘reality and duality’ was witnessed in the two opposing sides of the same force. The lions of Orion fought each other now and those of Panthera that wanted peace used the light of Manu and sought council with their ancestors on Regulus. The Jezura and Rezaru became willing servants of the darkness aiding in the creation of the Fourth Age on Earth.”
The Priests of Manu
The new book depicts the Priests of Manu as the original ‘Light keepers’ of Sophia. Only three priests existed at anyone time on the Sophia. These Lion Priests were said to come from Regulus (in Leo) and were placed on Sophia (in the Temples of Atlan in Atlantis) to hold the light of the Aeons at sacred points along the Earth’s surface. The Priests of Manu were the ‘temple builders’ and ‘protectors’ of the ‘sacred sites’ where the ‘light of Durga’ travelled through what became known as ‘energy lines’ or dragon lines. The Priests of Manu were the founders of what became Gnosticism that emerged after the ‘Great Flood’. They emerged through the last of their kin, Ariel in what is now kown as Lower Egypt.
The whole of the Lower Egypt location (the Nile Delta and where it meets the Mediterranean) where Tanis is located has become more intruiging as I have been writing this book. Not least through the fasinating work of Danny Wilten and his correspondences bewteen the Orion Nebula and the Nile Delta region, as above so below… His You tube channel is worth a view.
So, as I said above, I don’t intend to give too much away at this stage, but to merely interest those that love my images and books.
The book Aeon Rising should be avialble at the end of 2017, into 2018.
