Today I came across the proving by Jeremy Sherr of the blood of the American bald Eagle. Some of what the proving says has relevance today in the apparently opposing world views of homeopaths and skeptics:
‘The tranquillity of Eagle leads to a unique characteristic. This is a state of witnessing, a pure objectivity that will not take sides in the worldly struggle of parallel and opposing teams that can never share a common point of view.
From this highly objective position eagle approaches the state of a truly unprejudiced observer.
Haliaeetus…. focuses not on the lines but on the eternal split between them.’ One prover felt: “It’s like a deep, deep crack and it is getting deeper, like a crack in my soul. The crack has an endless quality to it, like a crack in my soul or the universe.”
‘The Kabala teaches that the Tree of Life is constructed of three parallel columns. On the left side is the pole of Judgement and discrimination and on the right side is the pole of Sympathy and benevolence. Haliaeetus separates these polarities to an extreme degree. But in opposition to the deep and evil crack mentioned earlier, it also has the power to unite both columns in the central column of Mercy, which represents divine presence.
Though the internal configuration of Haliaeetus is the unfocused separation of parallel lines, which leads to a dark, empty abyss, in our vast curved universe parallel lines may eventually meet high above the ground or deep within our interior. once the eagle focuses on this central point of view, it can align with the only force in the universe that is beyond good and bad, present and future, judgement and sympathy – the all powerful force of God’s light.’
