12. I can dig it! It's got a good beat and you can dance to it!
Actually, this isn't too hard to understand, but you have to understand that we live in a dualistic/polar reality (i.e. up/down, black/white, in/out, etc) and the Triad is the blending of the two, hence the middle, mediary postiion.

I have heard it explained as this:
look at the cross, the line down the middle is the symbol for the separation from God. The christ is the bridge, we could not cross over it, because we were immersed in our "sin" (illusion, maya, spearation belief) so God, being the only one who could cross the gap, incarnated so that HE could re-open the channel for us to cross over and be in relationship with God once again. Because all God ever wanted was to be in relationship with us as his creation. That is agape love.

:) I really love esoteric religion, can you tell? and this is a basic teaching on many levels of several religions. The language is just different. But the concept of separation and the need for us to be able to cross over the illusion to speak to God is very common. Yet another reason that a cross is a archetypical symbol dating back to pre-christianity and indeginous tribes...

Ye-haw...thanks for sharing!
