Balance

“Mean time the Scales which were intirely of gold were hung up in the midst of the Hall; There was also a little Table covered with red Velvet, and seven weights placed theron. First of all stood a pretty great one, next four little ones; lastly, two great ones severally; And these Weights in proportion to their bulk were so heavy, that no man can believe or comprehend it. But each of the Harnised men had together with a naked Sword a strong rope; These she distributed according to the number of Weights into seven bands, and out of every band chose one for their proper weight; and then again sprung up into her high Throne. Now as soon as she had made her reverence, with a very Shrill Tone she began thus to speak”:

‘Who int’ a Painters room does go
And nothing does of painting know,
Yet does in prasing therof, pride it;
Shall be of all the World derided.
Who into th’ Artists order goes,
And thereunto was never chose;
Yet with pretence of skill does pride it;
Shall be of all the World derided.
Who at a Wedding does appear,
And yet was ner’e intended there;
Yet does in coming highly pride it;
Shall be of all the World derided.
Who now into this Scale ascends
The weights not proving his fast Friends,
And that it bounces so does ride it;
Should be of all the World derided.’

“But I was the eighth; Now as soon as (with trembling) I stepped up, my Companion who already sat by in his Velvet, looked friendly upon me, and the Virgin her self smiled a little. But for as much as I outstayed all the Weights, the Virgin commanded them to draw me up by force, wherefore three men moreover hung on the other side of the Beam, and yet could nothing prevail. Whereupon one of the Pages immediately stood up, and cryed out exceeding loud, ‘THAT’S HE'”…

~from “The Hermetick Romance: or the Chymical Wedding” by Christian Rosencreutz, incarnated watcher, “fallen angel”


He [Nebuchadnezzar, incarnated watcher, “fallen angel”] was driven from among men, and his heart or mind was made like the beasts, and his dwelling was with the wild asses. He was fed with grass like oxen, and his body was wet with the dew of the heavens until he learned and knew that the Most High God rules in the kingdom of men and that He appoints and sets over it whomever He will.

And you his son, O Belshazzar, have not humbled your heart and mind, though you knew all this [knew it and were defiant].

And you have lifted yourself up against the Lord of heaven, and the vessels of His house have been brought before you, and you and your lords, your wives, and your concubines have drunk wine from them; and you have praised the gods of silver and gold, of bronze, iron, wood, and stone, which do not see or hear or know; but the God in Whose hand your breath is and Whose are all your ways you have not honored and glorified [but have dishonored and disgraced].

Then was the part of the hand sent from the presence of [the Most High God], and this writing was inscribed.

And this is the inscription that was written: mene, mene, tekel, upharsin—numbered, numbered, weighed, divisions.

This is the interpretation of the matter: mene, God has numbered the days of your kingship and brought them to an end;

tekel, You are weighed in the balances and are found wanting…

~from “The Book of Daniel”

To the watchers, the “fallen angels”: do not be mistaken, harbor no doubts; for each of you, the scales of gold will once again hang in the Hall…
