III. The Inner Earth

The image below is an illustration of "The Hollow Earth" by Danish artist Max Fyfield. If you click on it a window will pop up with a larger version. Grandfather Martin suggested that those who are to be surviving the Great Purification might do so by going for safety into here.

Clearly this illustration wasn't meant to be taken too seriously. Perhaps one of you can figure out what Grandfather Martin intended. Who communicates in such strange symbols?

As you can see, this map shows an "inner world" under the surface of the Earth, with a Central Sun at its core. This hidden realm is also shown to be the true location of the mythical city of Shamballah, the goal of the spiritual journey. At the bottom of the page the artist notes, "Inner Earth to be re-drawn by someone who has been there!" I'm including below some images that are based on the teachings of the ancient Indian tantrikas, yogis who were among our earliest scientific explorers of the inner world.

As some of you may know, in the Indian system of Kundalini Yoga, the "South Pole" of the body's axis (muladhara chakra) is occupied by the goddess Kundalini, also called Shakti, who symbolizes the dynamic, creative energy of the universe. Her consort, Lord Shiva, resides at the body's "North Pole" (sahasrara chakra). Normally, our creative energy flows through one of two spiral-shaped paths called Ida and Pingala, which have multiple manifestations but are most basically the male and female sexual energies, which are like opposing magnetic charges. The practice of Kundalini Yoga trains a practitioner to clear blockages in this system and allow the energy to travel directly upward through the sushumna or central channel, allowing Shiva and Shakti to be reunited and thus completing the spiritual path.

I mentioned earlier that in Hopi belief the two poles of the world are occupied by the twins Poqanghoya and Palongawhoya. Another Hopi story tells how, upon our emergence into the present world, there were two brothers who separated and departed in opposite directions to make their migrations across the face of the earth. The Hopis identify the Native American people with the Red Brother, and their prophecies say that in the End Times the True White Brother will return and the brothers will be reunited. His identity will be proven by his possession of a missing piece from the Prophecy Rock given to the Hopis by the Creator in antiquity. So far no one has appeared with this precious relic, but Grandfather Martin believes it may be in the possession of the Dalai Lama, the leader of the Tibetan Government in Exile.
