Israel Crosses the Jordan
Jos 3:1 And Joshua rose early in the morning; and they removed from Shittim, and came to Jordan, he and all the children of Israel, and lodged there before they passed over. Jos 3:2 And it came to pass after three days, (fast and meditate for three days is an old maxim) that the officers went through the host; Jos 3:3 And they commanded the people, saying, When ye see the ark of the covenant of the LORD your God, and the priests the Levites bearing it, then ye shall remove from your place, and go after it. Jos 3:4 Yet there shall be a space between you and it, about two thousand cubits by measure: come not near unto it, that ye may know the way by which ye must go: for ye have not passed this way heretofore. Jos 3:5 And Joshua said unto the people, Sanctify yourselves: for to morrow the LORD will do wonders among you. Jos 3:6 And Joshua spake unto the priests, saying, Take up the ark of the covenant, and pass over before the people. And they took up the ark of the covenant, and went before the people. Jos 3:7 And the LORD said unto Joshua, This day will I begin to magnify thee in the sight of all Israel, that they may know that, as I was with Moses, so I will be with thee. Jos 3:8 And thou shalt command the priests that bear the ark of the covenant, saying, When ye are come to the brink of the water of Jordan, ye shall stand still in Jordan. Jos 3:9 And Joshua said unto the children of Israel, Come hither, and hear the words of the LORD your God.

The Ark - the female generative power (feminine principle which is poured out in Acts 2:17 - "God poured out his feminine spirit" - the ruach)
"The ark is the navi-form Argha of the Mysteries. Parkhurst, who has a long dissertation upon it in his Greek dictionary, and who never breathes a word about it in the Hebrew lexicon, explains it thus: -- "[[Arche]] in this application answers to the Hebrew rasit or wisdom . . . . a word which had the meaning of the emblem of the female generative power, the Arg or Arca, in which the germ of all nature was supposed to float or brood on the great abyss during the interval which took place after every mundane cycle."
[[Vol. 2, Page]] 460 THE SECRET DOCTRINE.
The point is - you need the feminine generative power to cross the River Jordan. This is likely why we see the females leading the protest movement.
Hansel & Gretal Cross The River on a white duck's (swan's) back.
" ...Gretel flew straight to Hansel, opened the little stable door and cried, “Hansel, we are free; the old witch is dead!” Then Hansel sprang like a bird out of a cage when the door is opened. How they rejoiced, fell on each other’s necks, jumped for joy, and kissed one another! As they had no longer any cause for fear, they went in the old hag’s house, and here they found, in every corner of the room, boxes with pearls and precious stones. “These are even better than pebbles,” said Hansel, and crammed his pockets full of them. Gretel said, “I too will bring something home,” and she filled her apron full.
“Now,” said Hansel, “let’s go and get well away from the witch’s wood.” When they had wandered about for some hours they came to a big lake. “We can’t get over,” said Hansel, “I see no bridge of any sort or kind.”
“Yes, and there’s no ferry boat either,” answered Gretel. “But look, there swims a white duck (swan). If I ask her she’ll help us over,” and she called out, “Here are two children, mournful very, seeing neither bridge nor ferry; take us upon your white back, and row us over, quack, quack!”
The duck swam towards them, and Hansel got on her back and bade his little sister sit beside him. “No,” answered Gretel, “we should be too heavy a load for the duck. She shall carry us across separately.” The good bird did this, and when they were landed safely on the other side, and had gone for a while, the wood became more and more familiar to them, and at length they saw their father’s house in the distance. Then they set off to run, and bounding into the room fell on their father’s neck. The man had not passed a happy hour since he left them in the wood, and the woman had died. Gretel shook out her apron so that the pearls and precious stones rolled about the room, and Hansel threw down one handful after the other out of his pocket. Thus all their troubles were ended, and they lived happily ever afterwards."
Same river, different name. I will give you a clue. The river is the Milky Way and what do we have to do to get to the other side? We have to build an Ark, a ship, that will take us there. The ship is an Arc (of Light - the Holy Ghost, Shekinah, Kundalini, Tao, the Mother etc. etc.).
Notice in the story it is a new world, New Jerusalem and there is no evil witch any longer. No Covid either! No wars etc. etc.
St. Paul tells us the Bible is allegorical - Jesus tells us he speaks in parables.
Gal_4:24 Which things are an allegory: for these are the two covenants; the one from the mount Sinai, which gendereth to bondage, which is Agar.
Allegory is the expression of truths or generalizations about human existence by means of symbolic fictional figures and their actions. It encompasses such forms as fable and parable.
Fables, parables, mythology, symbolism, fairy tales are all allegorical. The Bible, all scriptures and stories from all cultures the same.
When you get this Light, you become as Christ as Jesus did.
"Christ himself is the perfect symbol of the hidden immortal within the mortal man." C. G. Jung, Aion
"It is the living Word and every man is a Christ in whom the "Son of God" becomes manifest."
But fortunately for the Bible and—if we only knew how to read it—fortunately for us, the stories contained therein are by no means merely histories of persons who lived in ancient times, but they are allegories and myths having very often a very deep meaning, of which our expounders of the Bible, as well as its critics, usually know very little. Fictions are necessary to represent truths; but they should not be mistaken for the truth itself. Franz Hartmann
"It is a grand volume, a master-piece composed of clever, ingenious fables containing great verities; but it reveals the latter only to those who, like the Initiates, have a key to The Bible - its inner meaning.
There are many keys of which I do not have all. But I have shared one I do have. Initiates are simply those who have Light in their heads and as a result are initiated into the mysteries. We have seen the chart of vibration (earlier article) which shows that the enlightened (using both halves of their brain), vibrate at a greater frequency and thus can see many things intuitively and through meditation.
