Our Philosophy: Tripod Of Life

Tripod Of Life

Rings or circles are a symbol of wholeness and unity. They have no beginning and no end. They represent the infinite possibilities of creation they are contained in the void. In the study of Sacred Geometry, two intersecting circles represent the coming together of God and man. Their common area form the pointed oval or seed shape referred to as the vessica piscis from which all other geometric shapes can be generated.

Three intersecting circles form the basic trefoil unit generally known as the “Tripod of Life” and have been held sacred by many cultures. They are said to represent the energy/form of the Second Day of Creation and are often used to symbolize the Trinity. They are a very powerful representation of the creative force of the Universe, and inscribe three intersecting vessica piscis. At their center is formed a triangle with curved sides. Straight-sided triangles are shapes that represent balance, stability, and equilibrium and their three internal angles add up to no more than 360 degrees of rotation. Curved sided triangles, whether in a flat plane or in spherical geometry contain more than 360 degrees. This “pregnant” triangle is a lens for powerful energies from Higher Realms.

The Seed of Life is a symbol depicting the seven days of creation in which the Judeo-Christian God created life. The first day is believed to be the creation of the vessica Piscis, then the creation of the Tripod of Life on the second day, followed by one sphere added for each subsequent day until all seven spheres construct the Seed of Life on the sixth day of Creation. The seventh day is the day of rest. The “Seed of Life” is a basic building block of the “Flower of Life” pattern which depicts fundamental forms of time and space as it illustrates the interconnectedness of all life. The Flower of Life is considered to be a symbol of sacred geometry, said to contain ancient, religious value depicting the fundamental forms of space and time. There are many symbols found within the Flower of Life's design, each believed to possess significant meaning.
