The Veil

From The SpiritWiki

The Veil is a western Christian metaphor used to describe Disconnection from Consciousness. When the Crown Chakra is damaged/distorted and the Bodily Ego is disconnected from Spiritual Ego, we may say that a veil has been placed over the individual. The veil prevents connection to one's own Resident Monadic Consciousness

In Christianity, the concept of The Veil appears in the gospels (Matthew 27:51; Mark 15:38; Luke 23:45) where it is written that the curtain/Veil of the Temple was torn asunder.

In Christian/Judaic context the concept is used to represent the separation (i.e. dis-Connection) between the Holy of Holies (i.e. The Fabric of Consciousness) and Creation. Note that in Christian/Judaic context access to Consciousness as it exists behind The Veil was given only to a High Priest, and only on Yom Kippur (a.k.a.Day of Atonement).

In the Masonic Tarot The Veil is represented on the High Priestess card. In this card access to the Waters of Consciousness behind The Veil are provided only those who follow Torah.

Destruction of The Veil (i.e. removal of The Blindfold and emancipation of Consciousness) is the stated goal of Authentic Spirituality.
