America, who are we? Christopher Columbus discovered America by prophecy. In carry out his voyage to discover a New World Columbus wrote:
"Neither reason nor mathematics nor maps were of any use to me."
Columbus' life is clothed in mystery. The exact date or place of his birth is not known. Some claim he was Greek, others Genoese, and some even claim he was a Spanish Jew. Columbus was steeped in mystery, very fluid with a poetic language that resonated with the secret societies of the 15th century, suggesting he could have been part of the secret societies such as the guilds, Knights Templars, and the Masons. These secret societies have a tradition of working behind the veil, right in the very midst of the people. Was Christopher Columbus on a mission to find the next promised land?
The Founding Fathers seemed to identify with the mission of Columbus and set for to establish a constitution that embodied the freedoms that Columbus envisioned. After the signing of the Declaration of Independence the founding fathers worked to create a Great Seal (now depicted on the one dollar bill) that would be a representation of the mission and identity of the American people. The Great Seal portrays an eagle, the pyramid, mottoes, and numerological symbols. The eagle is the ancient symbol of spiritual vision without which the people perish. The olive branch in the right talon indicates the rule of the Prince of Peace by the authority of Jehovah. Jehovah from the Hebrew name of God, is taken from the verb "to be" also "that which was, is, and will be."
The number 13 is so frequently used in the seal that one has to wonder if the Founding Fathers wanted to make sure we didn't miss it. The eagle is holding thirteen arrows in the left talon, there are thirteen pieces for the coat of arms. The mottoes ,annuit coeptis-"He has smiled on our undertakings," e pluribus unum-"one out of many," both have thirteen letters. There are thirteen rows of masonry on the pyramid. It is possible the founding fathers were reminding us that we are the twelve tribes and the thirteenth, the Levites of Israel.
We have certainly come far as a nation, yet in the last four years America has resembled a hapless giant. Much like the 1970′s when companies like Ford (NYSE:F) looked aimless and lackluster, as does Ford now. There are Parallels to the 1970′s to what we see today. The nation is
without a rudder and the people are in the doldrums. This is all about to change as Pluto has moved direct and will return to the nation a strength and honor that will resemble the intent shown in the great seal on the US dollar. For all the discussion regarding the destruction of the dollar I will have to disagree. We may see quite the opposite as the economy grows and the dollar strengthens.
I believe the vision and mission of Christopher Columbus will not be stopped.
