Sacred Geometry for Fun and Personal Growth.
Sacred geometry is a vast and exciting subject. This website will give you a good summary, with some practical exercises and tools to get started, plus further resources to guide you onward. To start with, mathematics is a wonderful clean subject. It is not subject to opinion, nor does it rely on heated debates as to what the correct answer is. And geometry specifically is pure beauty! It is a great synthesizer, merging the linear, rational aspect of math through the left-side of the brain with the graphical, artistic aspect of pattern and beauty through the right brain. It unites the mind and the heart (called the "intelligence of the heart" by the ancient Egyptians), spirit and matter, science and spirituality. These are all apparently separate halves of the Whole. |
Plato said in the Republic (VII, 527 d, e) that it is through geometry that one purifies the eye of the soul, "since it is by it alone that we contemplate the truth." Mother nature uses geometry everywhere you look, from the spirals of the nautilus shell, sunflower centre and spiral galaxies to the hexagon symmetry of snowflakes, flower petals and honeycomb.
Geometry in nature arranges the shapes of the molecules and crystals that make up our bodies and the physical cosmos. It is the key to the creation of the universe. A good primer on this subject is Michael Schneiders interesting book A Beginner's Guide to Constructing the Universe. In his introduction, he says: "It's a shame that children are exposed to numbers merely as quantities instead of qualities and characters with distinct personalities relating to each other in various patterns. If only they could see numbers and shapes as the ancients did, as symbols of principles available to teach us about the natural structure and process of the universe and to give us perspective on human nature."
Studying and meditating on geometry helps us to better understand the laws, patterns and blueprints within nature. As we are part of nature, it can help us key in to and become more of our true selves, the magnificent spiritual beings who we really are. But if you are not into that, just studying the wonders and beauty of geometry is a healthy and thoroughly enjoyable past time anyway!
