The Rose Line - Book Excerpt - New Chapter

My grandmother and stepmother were avid gardeners, which got my sister and I interested in gardening. While staying with my sister in Outback Australia recently we did some rose gardening together. My sister’s avid rose gardening is locally famous and we decided to propagate some new roses for my sister’s motor inn, The Starline Motor Inn in Miles, Queensland.

Propagating roses was a new learning experience for me and an eye opener symbolically.   To trim a rose stalk for replanting - count 5 nodes down and cut on a 45 degree angle.  The rose and the number five are connected to Mary Magdalene and to secret societies. 

Five is also the number of points in a classical star and pentagram, which represents the star Venus.   A Biblical Flood ancestor of Mary Magdalene and Jesus Venus was deified as a Goddess, ancient saint, for her efforts to repopulate humanity after the Biblical Flood. 

The number 45 is also coded in allegory. 4 plus 5 equals 9, which is 3 times 3.  The number 3 represents the Holy Trinity, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost  Three is also the number of children Mary Magdalene had with Jesus, 2 sons and a daughter.  

The rose is probably the most enigmatic of flowers in literature, usually full of symbolism of love and romance, but also an important symbol in the Holy Grail legends.   The rose is one of the symbols of Mary Magdalene and there is some reality and some fiction to the connection. 

"I am the Rose of Sharon, and the Lily of the Valley;
As the lily among the thorns, so is my love among the daughters;
As the apple tree, the apple tree among the trees of the wood,
So is my beloved among the sons,”
First published in English in 1611 in the King James Version of the Bible, Song of Songs, chapter 2, verse 1. Words of the Beloved, aka the words spoken to Jesus by Mary Magdalene. 

In this except from the Bible’s New Testament we see the apple, which is a symbol for ancient England, because that is where apples original come from. The apple is a species of rose. This opens up a whole lot of other research wanderings about where Eden really was and different ways to find it, but that’s in another chapter.   The words also talk about Mary Magdalene having daughters and sons or descendants. 

The rose of Mary Magdalene symbology is often connected to tears, though not the tears of Mary Magdalene as popularly believed, but the tears of later saints. Saints are often martyrs and usually supposed to be descended from the Rose line, the children of Jesus and Mary Magdalene. At least in the early centuries of Christianity they were, which is a Vatican secret.  Now sainthoods are given to anybody, due to public pressure from a public who is uneducated on what or who saints really are.

The "Rose Line” of the French Holy Grail legends is the bloodline of Jesus Christ with Mary Magdalene.  Through the centuries this previously publicly recognized bloodline has come to produce some famous French Crusader kings.  King Baldwin I was one of the leaders of the Crusades then chosen to be king of Jerusalem after his brother of Godfrey de Bouillon died.  After Baldwin passed away in 1118 AD, another third brother, Eustace III, was elected to be king, but usurped by their nephew, Baldwin ii, with the aid of Crusader knights. 

One version of the rose and Mary Magdalene connection is possibly because some of Mary Magdalene’s ancient ancestry is in England. The official flower of England has been the rose at least since the “War of the Roses” in the 1400s AD.   The War of the roses was between two lines of royal descendants from Mary Magdalene and Jesus.  The Tudor rose can be seen today in classical architecture and furniture motifs. 

In the faith I was brought up in, Church of England a very ancient royal church, praying to an idol or avatar or anybody but God is sacrilegious. So delving into saints has been a bit more objective for me than for a person of Catholic faith. The first ever Christian church was founded in England by Joses, one of the sons of Mary Magdalene and Jesus, along with Joseph of Arimathea.  From a French royal secret society source, for another chapter.

The Rose of the Magdalene is also called “The Rose of Israel” and “The Rose of Jerusalem”.  This is because the historical Mary Magdalene was a royal in the region now called Jerusalem, and Jewish by politics only and not Jewish by ancestry or upbringing.  The Jewish recasting and reinterpretation of the Bible is a very modern work, since around WWI. It was to politically ease-in the annexing of Palestine for the Zionist movement. Most publishing houses at that time were also owned by people of Jewish faith.  It only takes one generation to forget.

Generational forgetting can have dire consequences.  Rather than a reality based faith and just believe in God we have faith based on   fantasies, which has led people to create more fantasies and faiths based on those.  The people don’t know what is reality, making the people vulnerable to fantasy faiths taking advantage of them. This also makes people helpless, frozen in a yoga position fearing to move.  They believe that some entity will fix everything or UFO will beam them up, or the “vibes” or another person is sabotaging them.  Instead of getting off the meditation mat and fixing the problem themselves.

In Walt Disney's animation of Sleeping Beauty we see a lot of rose symbology, as well as the analogy of the Sleeper Awakening. Walt was a member of a Rosicrucian order, the Ancient Mystical Order of the Rosae Crusis, AKA the Order of the Rose Cross.  What some call an occult secret society, but in reality are keepers of ancient lost histories. 

More fiction to note is Dan Brown’s Da Vinci Code and it’s Rose Line - to quote Wikipedia - “Rose Line is a fictional name given to the Paris Meridian and to the sunlight line defining the exact time of Easter on the Gnomon of Saint-Sulpice, marked by a brass strip on the floor of the church, where the two are conflated, by Dan Brown in his 2003 novel The Da Vinci Code.[1] Brown based this on material found in the Priory of Sion documents of the 1960s, where neither the Zero Meridian nor the sunlight line in St Sulpice are called Rose Line.”

The reality is that God is God and anybody else is a fantasy avatar created from royal customs and literary constructs. The rose is telling us that Mary Magdalene and Jesus and others we today call “Gods and Goddesses” were all once real living people.  They were deified as God avatars, because they were high ranking royals, not because they were actually from other worlds or had superpowers. Poor Jewish nobodies were not deified or revered, especially not by Roman and European Imperial royalty for centuries on end.  For that matter Jesus and Mary Magdalene are not revered by people of Jewish faith either.

Because of the French and Russian Revolutions and more recent wars, a lot of history got lost and people in generational post traumatic stress stopped believing in reality.  Real royals living in palaces with ministers to do their bidding became people living in mud huts and rags with winged angel beings flying around them.  People imaging they are Jesus or Mary Magdalene and taking other people’s money for it or letting life slide.

No political or religious side is right or wrong in these issues, because all have been sleeping in a mist of generational forgetfulness. Only when they wake up and remember reality will they be able to make wise choices for the good of all the world.

The rose, to me, tells us to remember reality and deal with life.

Decoding Eden

For my fans and friends and contributors being so patient while I'm working on the current book. I was thinking of them while writing this for them this morning. A search for Eden in the Bible and interpretation of the results according to collective research. Maybe put it in the new book, but I wrote it really just for my Grail peeps. Forgive if some notations are a bit punk, not sure how else to put it sometimes.

Suggested search result for Eden, King James

Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made. And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made. ...

To put it into context.

Other results...

And the Lord God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed.

If Eden was in England, as geology and ancient royal secret societies seem to say, then that would mean this particular chapter could have been written in Ireland.

And a river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from thence it was parted, and became into four heads. 

Cumbria in England, according to geology.

And the Lord God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it. 

God, a deified royal, had sex with a commoner and she got pregnant.  Twins were born, a boy and a girl, Adam and Eve. God gave them a walled estate in Cumbria to live for free according to a specific set of rules of living close to nature and non-materialism.

Therefore the Lord God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken. 

Adam and Eve broke the rules and God, the deified king, sent Adam and Eve out to get Real jobs, because they needed to learn humility.

So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of EdenCherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.

?  Volcano or ice or both ?

And Cain went out from the presence of the Lord, and dwelt in the land of Nod, on the east of Eden.

Cain possibly went to Denmark. 

Have the gods of the nations delivered them which my fathers have destroyed; as Gozan, and Haran, and Rezeph, and the children of Eden which were in Thelasar?

Either Thelasar, or Telassar, was in  England or another place some people from England went to. Or if the second Eden, Sri Lanka, Or Eden is a person.

Then the Levites arose, Mahath the son of Amasai, and Joel the son of Azariah, of the sons of the Kohathites: and of the sons of Merari, Kish the son of Abdi, and Azariah the son of Jehalelel: and of the Gershonites; Joah the son of Zimmah, and Eden the son of Joah:

A person.

And next him were Eden, and Miniamin, and Jeshua, and Shemaiah, Amariah, and Shecaniah, in the cities of the priests, in their set office, to give to their brethren by courses, as well to the great as to the small:

A person.

Have the gods of the nations delivered them which my fathers have destroyed, as Gozan, and Haran, and Rezeph, and the children of Eden which were in Telassar?

After Eden 1 and 2 were destroyed, 1 by ice 2 by flood or tsunami, it's people lived elsewhere, but came back to England. Telassar is either the elsewhere or a name for England.

For the Lord shall comfort Zion: he will comfort all her waste places; and he will make her wilderness like Eden, and her desert like the garden of the Lord; joy and gladness shall be found therein, thanksgiving, and the voice of melody.

Look after the land and it will look after you. In essence if we till our own soil, grow our own organic food, and use technology to save the world instead of for profit we can all live in Eden everywhere.

Haran, and Canneh, and Eden, the merchants of Sheba, Asshur, and Chilmad, were thy merchants.

These were either people or they were all ancient sea going trading nations or both with mining and other resources to trade. We know them today by other names.  Both England and Sri Lanka were and still are trading nations.

Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created.

This to me describes a real palace with ornate walls inlaid with precious stones. Examples can be still found in India, such as the Taj Mahal. Through the ages a site can have built and destroyed many palaces.  This may have been talking about the 2nd Eden in Sri Lanka at the Southern tip of India. God built it for Adam and Eve after the first Eden in England was destroyed. There is an underwater rock formation called Adam's bridge that can be seen by satellite.  

I have made him fair by the multitude of his branches: so that all the trees of Eden, that were in the garden of God, envied him.

God, a deified king, is talking about his son like a proud father.

I made the nations to shake at the sound of his fall, when I cast him down to hell with them that descend into the pit: and all the trees of Eden, the choice and best of Lebanon, all that drink water, shall be comforted in the nether parts of the earth.

Sounds like someone got their Karma.

To whom art thou thus like in glory and in greatness among the trees of Eden? yet shalt thou be brought down with the trees of Eden unto the nether parts of the earth: thou shalt lie in the midst of the uncircumcised with them that be slain by the sword. This is Pharaoh and all his multitude, saith the Lord God.

The tree stock of England are very very ancient.  At the end of each world the ancient and the new and every person of every culture and societal class are recycled together. The symbol of the serpent eating itself is the Earth renewing itself. Everything we do now has been done before, countless times. The prophecies of the end of the world are not that the planet Earth shall be obliterated. They are that your here and now culture and bodily self will eventually die and be replaced by another.

And they shall say, This land that was desolate is become like the garden of Eden; and the waste and desolate and ruined cities are become fenced, and are inhabited.

As the Earth and people renew, land also is regenerated and old city sites are recycled, except for certain secret societies, many without knowledge of their many ancient predecessors.

A fire devoureth before them; and behind them a flame burneth: the land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; yea, and nothing shall escape them.

Nobody can escape the process of death and rebirth.

I will break also the bar of Damascus, and cut off the inhabitant from the plain of Aven, and him that holdeth the sceptre from the house of Eden: and the people of Syria shall go into captivity unto Kir, saith the Lord.

This is not just about one country or continent. Those that do not give the proper heirs to whom God, deified King of the World, rightful rulership and respect will suffer the consequences, as if by the hand of God. The job position of Queen of England and other rightful monarchs is not just a public figure and museum.  The job position and the extreme respect for it and the values it represents in caring for the people and the land and animals protects the rest of us all around the world from God's wrath.

Dan Brown Didn’t Plagiarize

Dan Brown studied art history. Within art history is the secret source of Brown’s information to the Holy Grail legends, because art is also an allegorical language, alike to Egyptian hieroglyphs. 

Dan Brown didn't plagiarize. The same results and information can be found by anybody researching the art history of the symols of the Holy Grail legends. 

There is certain symbology used in the movie Da Vinci Code that is false, such as the Jewish star at Roslyn Chappel. And they used other symbology that is true and tell histories that only grandmasters and ranked royal families know. Stories such as the identity of the real Mary Magdalene in history. 

Dan Brown didn't tell us in words or directly, he told us in coded in symbols in the last two scenes of the Da Vinci Code movie. I am an art historian and spent 7 years studying the same scope of symbols and found them all over the beautiful Victorian houses of Haight Ashbury San Francisco, where I live.

 Some of my research is in video book form at  Coded Architecture of Haight Ashbury (New book with more advanced research to be released in a few months. )A picture tells a thousand words, a symbol tells an epic ;-) 

Dan Brown did the world a favor by waking people up from a brainwashed stupor from censored media that most of the world still don't know they are deeply in. Holy Blood Holy Grail authers do deserve respect for their efforts, but their line of research is a dead end. Plus they did benefit big time from the notoriety of the court case against Dan Brown. This is what I have found in this scope of research.

Dan Brown did it using popular electronic media, fighting fire with fire. Very hip and cool. Maybe Dan Brown is a grand master undercover.

Words of Mary Magdalene

 I am the flower of the field, and the lily of the valleys. 
As the lily among thorns, so is my love among the daughters. 
As the apple tree among the trees of the woods, so is my beloved among the sons. I sat down under his shadow, whom I desired: and his fruit was sweet to my palate. He brought me into the cellar of wine, he set in order charity in me. 
Stay me up with flowers, compass me about with apples: because I languish with love. 
His left hand is under my head, and his right hand shall embrace me. 
 I adjure you, O you daughters of Jerusalem, by the roes, and the harts of the field, that you stir not up, nor make the beloved to awake, till she please. 
 The voice of my beloved, behold he comes leaping upon the mountains, skipping over the hills. 
 My beloved is like a roe, or a young hart. Behold he stands behind our wall, looking through the windows, looking through the lattices. 
 Behold my beloved speaks to me: Arise, make haste, my love, my dove, my beautiful one, and come. 
 For winter is now past, the rain is over and gone. 
 The flowers have appeared in our land, the time of pruning has come: the voice of the turtle is heard in our land:  The fig tree has put forth her green figs: the vines in flower yield their sweet smell. Arise, my love, my beautiful one, and come: 
 My dove in the clefts of the rock, in the hollow places of the wall, show me your face, let your voice sound in my ears: for your voice is sweet, and your face comely. Catch us the little foxes that destroy the vines: for our vineyard has flourished. 1
 My beloved to me, and I to him who feeds among the lilies, 
 till the day break, and the shadows retire. 
Return: be like, my beloved, to a roe, or to a young hart upon the mountains of Bether. 
Song of Songs 2 - King James Bible

Coded San Francisco

There is so much more to discover about San Francisco than the usual tourist hangouts.   My name is Deborah Hodgson and I am an art historian living in Haight Ashbury. For the past 7 years I have been working with museums and historians, genealogists, heraldry organizations and members of Masonic and Orthodox Catholic and French Essene orders.  My findings are quite different from the popular authors and rewrite and add new chapters to the Holy Grail sagas. 

San Francisco has a real life Da Vinci Code esq mystery.   At the turn of the 20th Century San Francisco was called the Paris of the USA for it's European culture and large population of French and European immigrants with royal titles and ancestry.   Within San Francisco's streets, buildings and museums of art are clues to cracking the secrets of the Holy Grail and the elusive Knights Templar code. 

The decorations on the Victorian houses and other vintage buildings of San Francisco are actually a language, alike to Egyptian hieroglyphics, designed by the secret society called the Masons. Each building is a storybook telling the true history of the people in the Holy Grail legends, who the Jesus family and Jesus really were and Jesus’s and Mary Magdalene’s real life descendants.  Many of the more famous architects of the Victorians, such as Cranston or Dunn, had Masonic connections and royal ancestors.

This code is not only in the Victorians, it is also coded into street names and shapes, the placement of monuments and museums, and in art collections at the Legion of Honor Museum of Art, and more.  Did you know that overlooking Haight Ashbury is an actual Knights Templar church and abbey? Or that some of the streets around the Haight and San Francisco are in the shapes of secret society symbols and some named after Masons?
