The Ankh Is the Crux Ansata: A Daskalos and Law of One Congruency

My two main sources of inspiration and understanding for over three years have been the Law of One and the Daskalos material.  As I delved more deeply into both, intellectually, intuitively, and in higher realms, I have been putting together a list of things that jump out at me where I see some important overlaps.  This list has not been published.  Yet one area, a basic one, is the following:

Daskalos (Researchers of Truth) affirms that the Egyptian symbol of the Ankh, is indeed the symbol of life.  The entirety of the Symbol of Life, which is the Researchers’ development of the Jewish Tree of life, is founded upon the ultimate truth of the Ankh.  It is, in fact, the ultimate Archetype, and for this reason, the Symbol of Life has it included in all of its centers, whether directly or hidden.

The Ankh or Cruz Ansata: Life!


Ra, in the Law of One Material, agrees and further elucidates:


92.30 Questioner: Would this crux ansata then be indicating a sign of life or spirit enlivening matter?

Ra: I am Ra. This is quite correct. Moreover, it illuminates a concept which is a portion of the archetype [Tarot Priestess Card] which has to do with the continuation of the consciousness which is being potentiated in incarnation, beyond incarnation.

93.24 Questioner: I am assuming that you mean one full question, and I’ll make that question: I’d like to know the significance of the shape of the crux ansata…

Ra: I am Ra. There are mathematical ratios within this image which may yield informative insights to one fond of riddles. We shall not untangle the riddle. We may indicate that the crux ansata is a part of the concept complexes of the archetypical mind, the circle indicating the magic of the spirit, the cross indicating that nature of manifestation which may only be valued by the losing. Thus the crux ansata is intended to be seen as an image of the eternal in and through manifestation and beyond manifestation through the sacrifice and transformation of that which is manifest.


In short, I believe that the traditional wording of this concept is simple: The Pascal Mystery!  Through his life, death, and resurrection, Jesus gave humanity the enfleshed Ankh so that we could get it in a new and “en vivo” way.

If we deeply receive the lessons and message of the Ankh, then we on our way to grasping the full flow of not only how evolution in manifestation works but, indeed, the very flow of God.

  1. Daskalos’ book, “The Symbol of Life,” does not lay out the ideas in the same way that Ra does. He lists the Ankh many times throughout the book, as if to highlight its importance, but then on page 309, he states, “On all the Centres and on all the Paths the Divine and the holy Symbol of Life LIFE, the ANKH, is found (although this sacred symbol has not been inscribed on the sketch of the Symbol of Life). The ANKH is in all the Centres in all the colours.”


  2. When you say that “the Symbol of Life has it included in all of its centers, whether directly or hidden”, can you explain a bit more about what you mean by this? Do you mean that the various features of the shape of the ankh also contain the same ratios used in the shape as a whole?


    1. HI Amanda. My wording in that sentence is confusing and it could be a lot better. I wrote that piece quickly and it would only be understandable to probably 2 people in the world, those are both familiar with the Law of One and Daskalos’ teachings. I should change the wording. But what I was trying to say was that Daskalos’ brand of esoteric Christianity uses a type of Kabala which is quite different than the Jewish one, though it contains the same form or pattern. That Daskalian Christian Kabala is called by them, the Symbol of Life. However, Daskalos further says that that the ankh is THE symbol of “life,” and to understand the ankh is to understand life. What I was trying to say in that poorly worded piece is that the ankh from Ra’s perspective is a symbol that speaks to mystery of how the One becomes the Many, which is always done through a kind of dying and rising. In other words, the ankh is the symbol of how the Unmanifested One manifests Itself and that pattern or flow of that process is one that follows the cycle of life. To my knowledge, Daskalos doesn’t expound so directly on the ankh much more than eluding to its prominence of being the central symbol of life. However, when looking at his system of Christian Kabala (called the Symbol of Life), it is a kind of mapped out process theology where the One, again, becomes the Many, and then the Many (including us) can learn through esoteric teachings how to navigate that divine pathway (Christian Kabala) with intention. Therefore, within the veins of that system called the Symbol of Life (Christian Kabala), runs the blood (flow) of how that system rolls out as manifestation (angels, humans, archetypes, etc), and that blood (flow) is symbolized as the ankh. I sure hope I haven’t been even more confusing!
