(Greek) From the ancient Greek λιος for "sun." Helios was a symbolic deity related to the movement and power of the Sun, depicted as as a handsome male driving a luminous chariot (the Sun). His Latin (Roman) name was Sol, from the Latin word solus, "alone," since the Sun is self-sustaining and complete in itself; in other words, Helios represents an androgynous being, an Elohim (male and female in one, complete), like the primordial Adam. The Hebrew word Elohim is a plural word, a combination of El (God) and Eloah (Goddess).

"Then אלהים [Elohim] said, “Let Us [God and Goddess] make Adam in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let [Adam] rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the cattle and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” Elohim created Adam in their own image, in the image of Elohim [they] created Adam; male and female [in other words, androgynous] Elohim created [Adam]." - Genesis 1:28

"With the Jews Adam Kadmon was the same as Athamaz, Tamaz, or the Adonis of the Greeks -- "the One with, and of his father" -- the "Father" becoming during the later Races Helios, the Sun, as Apollo Karneios, for instance, who was the "Sun born"..." - H.P. Blavatsky, The Secret Doctrine (1888)

QUOTE OF THE DAY

"In order to pass to a superior Level of Being, it is necessary to cease being what one is. We need to not be what we are. If we continue being what we are, we will never pass to a superior Level of Being."
