” One of the symbols of the creation of the world is the Mystical Rose.
The circles of the petals represent the six days during which God created the world (six symbolic ‘days’ which lasted billions of years !). Certain esoterics think that the first word of the Book of Genesis, Bereshith, comes from the verb bara, ‘to create’ and shith, ‘six’. Put one of the six colours in each circle (purple,blue, green, yellow, orange and red) and meditate on them. The central circle represents the white light which is the source of all the other colours. Even if you have not really grasped the deep symbolic significance of this perfect figure, the very fact of contemplating and meditating on it creates a bond between yourself and it which will help you in your spiritual work.”
