The Circle

by Liliana Usvat

The general belief behind sacred geometry is that geometry and mathematical ratios, harmonics and proportions are also found in music, light, and cosmology. It is considered foundational to building sacred structures such as temples, mosques, megaliths, monuments and churches; sacred spaces such as altars and tabernacles.

By studying the nature of these patterns, forms and relationships and their connections, insight may be gained into the mysteries - the laws and lore of the Universe.

A circle is another simple form found in sacred geometry. The circle is two dimensional and is a symbol of oneness. The ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter is called Pi.

Circles represent the primordial archetype of movement. Continuity which has neither end nor beginning.

Infinite movement, change of seasons, rhythmical cycles of life, where the end of one phase becomes the beginning of another.

In the Universe everything moves in a circles-like manner – galaxies, stars and planets. Changes in seasons, cycles in human bodies all have repeating, rhythmic motions. Pretty much all large celestial bodies shaped as spheroids due to their circular, spinning movement in the cosmos.

The ancient masters used the circle to symbolize the Creative Center.
They knew that creative process work in circles. The product are circles. The Universe is composed of circles. Man, body is composed of circles. The body cells are circles, composed of circular atoms, which is composed of electrons that are circles and move in circles.

The atom is composed of an orbit of electrons revolving around the nucleus in its centres as the planets revolve around the Sun.
The electron is the center if whirling force and revolves around the nucleus the central sun of the atom.

Cosmic circle

All things and elements move in circles. From the invisible to the visible and back again, the eternal process of construction and destruction of integration and disintegration. That work is called Creation but more correct tern is transformation. Things ate transformation not creation.

All visible forms gave their counterpart or pattern in the invisible world.
Thought forms are the origin of all living things in earth.
Giving firms are entirely dependent upon the life principle , the giving form being only an expression of the living principle not productive of it.

Circle is a symbol of wholeness – the divine unity of everything in the Universe.

In the human body, the iris looks very much like a galaxy or a spinning nebula. The mystical centre in the pupil, as a black hole that takes the light in, is surrounded by the band of stars swirling around its gravitational pull. The human eye is the physical interface between the inner microcosm and outer macrocosm that symbolises our shared nature and unity with the Universe.

Circle preserves the integrity of what is held inside and keeps it protected from any harm that may be coming from outside. Circle is always paradoxical, it unites as well as divides and separates the inside from the outside.
