COURSE of STUDY, our symbol's meaning
The School of Metaphysics logo is a composite of familiar symbols you may recognize from many schools of thought. The inner circle signifies the individuality, the spark of life from our Creator. The light and dark areas within the circle, reminiscent of the yin-yang symbol, represent the aggressive and receptive qualities in balance. The triangle pointing upward illustrates the trinity found in all esoteric and Holy scriptures of the world, the structure of consciousness from its spiritual origin to its physical expression. The downward triangle indicates Spirit entering matter, the creative manifestation of thought. Together, these triangles form the seal of David, the five physical senses unified by the mental sense of attention. The three circles outside the six -pointed star represent the conscious mind, the subconscious mind, and the superconscious mind, respectively. The four bars between the first and second circles form a cross marking the directions of the earth, and signifying the challenges and stages of man. The marks leading to the third circle represent the twelve aspects of man needed for Self mastery. The outer circles symbolizes the relationship between man and the outer universe. The rays represent the twelve Zodiacal influences which serve as indicators of the souls assignment for enlightenment in the present lifetime. The combination of these universal symbols represents the whole and complete individual - a unified image of the Self.
