Esoteric Geography - the Sea

For thousands of years natural formations have been assigned often magical and spiritual meanings in various cultural circles. In this series we will examine some geographical terms through esoteric eyes. Now let's go and see the sea!

 

The sea is a creature. The beginning of everything, a living God. It gives life and nourishment but sometimes it takes away something. It commands respect and teaches humility and those who do not learn that will pay dearly for it. To reign over it is an exceptional thing. Just think, the Persian King Xerxes was extremely reckless and, of course, proud and blind, when he had the courage to whip a true living God, namely the sea! Ironically, the battle of Thermopylae ultimately proved him right.

The sea is always, without exception, a female and as the source of life she is just like a woman. Velvety and caressing her bosom covers man but if necessary, she is harsh and angry. In ancient times, superstitious reverence made men fear the sea, which of course has a rational explanation. Typical offshore sailors travelled far and few people ventured out into open water. These sailors could not swim, which was still common up to modern times. Beached animals sometimes provoked terror, such as the giant squid corpse that impressed everyone who saw it.

It is known that the sea cures, people living alongside salt water are much less likely to be affected by diseases such as respiratory or thyroid conditions. At the same time the sea can kill, the tsunami and the devastating storms are evidence of the sea’s ’wrath’. The sea gives wealth, with salt ponds lucky nations gained unprecedented power and influence. According to bedtime books the sea is a symbol of love and the yearning after love.

It is a mysterious and mystical place whose limit, the horizon, fades away in shadows. For a long time the huge expanses of water, so to speak, ’locked up’ man. The ancient world came to an end at the Straits of Gibraltar (if we ignore the other side of the ocean reaching up to the Vikings of course). In tales the sea (according to some the Mediterranean Sea or the Atlantic Ocean may have been the equivalent) is filled with secrets and is a dangerous place where hellish creatures terrorise people. Superstition was mixed with respect right up to the New Age when the world's seas were finally fully mapped. The fear of the unknown, of course, still did not disappear completely (see, for example, experiences in the Sargasso Sea which, before biologists came along, was seen as evidence of the existence of the devil.)

Although today we tend to view it as just salt water, remember that the erratic and unpredictable body of water is the cradle of life and it maintains our home on earth. Its purity and its operating systems (such as the Gulf Stream) are the key to our continuing survival. If you do not see it as a living god, respect it because it is just as important today as it was thousands of years ago.
