And did those feet in ancient time
Walk upon England’s mountain green ?
And did the countenance divine
Shine forth upon our clouded hills ?
And was Jerusalem builded here
Among those dark satanic mills ?
Bring me my arrows of desire !
Bring me my spear ! O clouds, unfold !
Bring me my chariot of fire !
I will not cease from mental fight,
Nor shall my sword sleep in my hand
Till we have built Jerusalem
In England’s green and pleasant land .
William Blake – Jerusalem
It looks like Rik Clay was bang on the mark with his analysis of the London Olympics and the connection with Zion and Jerusalem . Danny Boyle, the artistic director for the opening ceremony has revealed more details . And surprise, surprise it will be called “Green and pleasant land” .
The stadium will be converted into the British countryside for the occasion and the story given is that it will be a celebration of the countryside . If you believe that ….. Intriguingly, Glastonbury will be one of the main centres of attraction as a mosh pit, which is meant to be a replica from the Glastonbury music festival, and also Glastonbury Tor will be highlighted .Legend has it that Jesus came to Britain and was said to have visited Glastonbury, and it is also associated with Joseph of Arimathea . And the very next day, the Olympic flame can be seen in Scotland with the ‘light bearers’ re-enacting the scene from Chariots of Fire . Click BBC News .
Danny Boyle and model of Olympic opening ceremony
It seems they have given up “in plain sight” as the connection with Jerusalem and Zion could not be more obvious . I’m sure there will be many who see it as a Zionist plot but I don’t think this has anything to do with Israel or Jerusalem .
The hymn Jerusalem and “the green and pleasant land” is a metaphor for “Home” and this covers many of the recent topics we have discussed . The original spiritual concept of Zion was not Jersualem as such but more profound . From Wikipedia : “In Kabbalah the more esoteric reference is made to Tzion being the spiritual point from which reality emerges, located in the Holy of Holies of the First, Second and Third Temple .” In essence – Home .
We have also seen this search for Zion in the film Prometheus which has the humans return to the place where humanity began . Now I would love to see the Olympic Games as a symbolic ritual to return us to our spiritual home but I believe the ‘home’, which this ‘lot’ (whoever this lot are) are looking for is more practical . And where this home is, can be seen in the Olympic mascot Wenlock which happens to be an identical representation of the glyph channelled by John Dee, the Monas Hieroglyphica .
What Wenlock references is the “Winter Triangle” . The horns are ‘The Horns of Isis’ – Sirius, the eye is ‘The Eye of Horus’ – Procyon, and the cross is ‘The Cross of Osiris’ – Betelgeuse .
I would suggest the London Olympics are another ritual (see Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and many others) in relation to Sirius, etc and for some reason which is not known to us, is seen as Home . The inclusion of Glastonbury in the opening ceremony would indicate some form of ritual linking to high energy areas in Britain and it will be interesting to see where else is included .
A huge amount of effort and money have been invested in these rituals and they will want a result . I find it difficult to believe there won’t be some form of physical manifestation, at the end of it all . We will have to wait and see, what it is .

Postscript : I have received an e-mail which informs me that some form of ceremony was carried out in Waterden Road, Stratford in 2005, by the Queen and Prince Philip prior to the awarding of the Games to London . I haven’t been able to find out any further info but if anyone knows more, please feel free to contact me .
