Terry Waite was released this day in history, having been abducted on January 20. http://www.history.com/this-day-in-history/terry-waite-released?et_cid=67570758&et_rid=927469077&linkid=http%3a%2f%2fwww.history.com%2fthis-day-in-history%2fterry-waite-released

TARRY!

WAIT!

What a name! Terry Waite

I think of the scriptural use of the word “tarry” and having looked through them, chose these two:

Luke 24:49 | And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high.

Hebrews 10:37 | For yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry.

There are six pages of reference for the word “wait”! http://www.kingjamesbibleonline.org/search.php?word=wait&page=5&order=&bsec= But isn’t it odd that the parents would choose such a name for their son, only for his life to become known for his “tarrying and waiting”.

When looking at the quintessential meaning of both of the days affixed to Terry Waite, i.e. the day of his capture and the day of his release, I look to those symbols which are called the Cosmic Cell of Character or Incorruptible and also the Unification symbol or Call to Specialization. These sets will resonate with the perfection or I AM or namaste of each day, and that which is to be done with that perfection of incorruptibility, or where the greatest possible outcome of success lies. Here are those sets! (I provide MEJ’s cabalistic interpretations for all, but also DR’s interpretation for the second of the pairings, which I believe provide the exoteric, in addition to the esoteric or cabbalistic rendering.)

And what I see here is that this span of the mandala is a call to that dispersion or karmic readjustment which will bring one to a point of true assistance, i.e., self-assistance, or the potential for true initiation. The incorruptible “identity” has been “excited” in this span of the mandala of symbols. This is what Terry Waite’s life experience attests to. This is that day of the potential for initiation. A dispersion in the past has come to its point of fruition.

In 2012, The Guardian, announced that he would be returning to Lebanon:

“Terry Waite, who was kidnapped and tortured 25 years ago by associates of the militant group Hezbollah, has returned to Lebanon to meet representatives of the organisation responsible for his capture.

“The 73-year-old went back to Beirut last week to reconcile with his captors and lay to rest the ghosts of the past.

“He told Ammar Moussawi, a senior figure within Hezbollah: “My first reason for the visit is to say the past is the past. Let us leave it.” http://www.theguardian.com/world/2012/dec/09/terry-waite-returns-lebanon-kidnapping

If you are interested in studying the Sabian symbols more deeply, in the models of the Cross (4-fold, structural) and the Star (5-fold, creative), I invite you to purchase my book, On the Shoulders of Giants: Advanced Techniques in Sabian Symbology, at Amazon:
