Revelations, Seals & Consciousness:
The Fourth Seal


Whereas the Second and the Third Seals of the Revelation of John symbolize the emergence and characteristics of the dualistic, ‘fallen’ consciousness of the “self” and the ‘thinker’ in their unrelenting and vicious opposition to both the non-dualistic consciousness Created by God and the Knowledge Revealed through that consciousness (as represented by the opening of the First Seal); the opening of the Fourth Seal symbolizes the manifestation of the characteristics of that ‘fallen’, dualistic consciousness in the space-time reality; that is, the effects of duality, conflict, violence and warfare (originating in the images of the ‘fallen’ consciousness of the “self”, and the thoughts of the ‘fallen’ consciousness of the ‘thinker’) upon human civilization; for example, the effects of ambition, sexual lust, the lust for power, greed, cynicism, paranoia, and self-righteousness vindictiveness.
