Memory is somewhere close to the human heart and has been for centuries. This was impressed in literature and writing books was a way of translating human discoveries so somewhere in some future place someone could remember their relationship with God. Other nations do not have to memorize God and translate him through the garden of philosophy. Some nations would not have to publicize their relationship with God as God knows the sacred heart. Memory has questioned faith with philosophy since the inception of the human being and the understanding of gods. Many civilizations have been at a height of an understanding. Civilizations philosophizing about our existence on earth and all we remember about these places is something sacred left behind, almost like finding an ancient fossil in a rock formation. Civilizations lost to Gods divine garden and once again as though we suffer memory loss from former generations, we start again on a Christian pathway like some old relics from the past.

Our cosmic entwining involves the lingam or phallus to take us on our celestial way unto the Lord. Eastern religions tell us this, divine honour for the gods. It is interesting that this symbol is used for the medical symbol. One feels this was from ancient textbook knowledge when European medicine was first brought into practice. Early on in the history of medicine it was philosophy, the devil brought disease and they were trying to make chemical concoctions to cure the body of evil. The evil would come in several guises, namely seasonal winds bringing mayhem, death, disease and the plague or the devil as the case may be. It is well observed that clothed gentlemen travelling to the Far East took with them cloaked disease by not bathing frequently enough. Diseases quite frequently already in existence but not closeted as they frequently did not need clothes for the weather. In some countries people do not have to wear clothes. Most Europeans would blush without a loincloth. In their region they want to observe how you are entwined with the cosmos or in European speak, what God provided you with. The phallus is all Southern nations are interested in. God protect their wings.

The garden of Heaven almost feels reached by a philosopher. The shadow of the human life in the elemental world on earth is but a breath taken away at death. God needs us to find our garden, a garden in the heart for philosophy. The celestial is felt in your heart to nominate the star patterns you have to follow at death, almost for you to feel that God is there to tell you the pathway to Heaven's door. The garden is a divine realm and God needs us to feel at home there. God elevates your understanding gently there in the garden with the scent of the rosebushes but the garden of earthly delights is reached through philosophy. A philosophy of love through the love in the garden to take your heart to a special place, the eternal celestial sphere and the divine light unto him in the garden, the garden of Heaven, God in the garden.

The rose garden is not for those with a fair tread. Always throughout the big monastery history of illuminated manuscripts and their writers, often nominated as artists, nominating the celestial sphere of reason seemed to be taken to the wrong philosophy of thinking. Almost where religious beliefs gets all tangled up with men of learning not enjoying a sexual life so the rose garden seems to meet the black arts of Hell more quickly than the devil. Perhaps they should have given flowers away to a friend in the outskirts of the monastery walls. Did they not have female company at all? Maybe with the Benedictine orders they were allowed a social day with the Benedictine nuns. The rose garden in France nominates the high end of society with named rosebushes to celebrate their life after they have passed through, the seed of philosophy for the newly born or to carry on the line.

Giorgione presented The Tempest, c. 1508, a painting about temporal love. A pastoral setting for the maiden in arms, the Virgin is blessed with French cloth to suggest her newly maiden status. A St. John like figure stands there in period costume looking like a shepherd but probably the boatman carrying the newlywed. This is an allegorical painting or genre painting communicating in metaphor about almost pseudo mythological themes and quasi-religious ideals. A woman of society would not be allowed in society until the firstborn was of the babe so, would definitely not be bathing by the stream, this almost appears like an allegorical blessing. God is the tempest or appears as a lightening storm in the background with a stork on the roof suggesting a baby in the house has been born. We have allegorical architecture in the background suggesting Venice. The bridge in the backdrop would also be significant and the walled garden setting with an ancient Roman theme. Our fair maiden looks at the viewer like a Venus on the newly made bed and we almost feel the newly Virgin has company.

Other maps such as the Tabula Peutingeriana appear as a strange distorted heart map and an early spiritual map to follow, almost the pattern of the stars in your heart reflected in the garden or the edge of the forest, the rivers and early pathways or routes. The current scroll transcribed by a monk in Colmar during the 13th Century is a revised copy of the 4th to 5th Century original. This spiritual highway appears like a map for current readers to take to heart as is the will of God and try and interpret a revised understanding of where God has taken us via the angels to a new light, a continued equation of philosophy in the garden of love. What is the new role for deep philosophy that has been taken to heart differently over the history of time and whose garden do we tenant now? Monasteries and their libraries are still there to visit but modern day philosophers would be using everything that is currently at their disposal. You feel God still wants us to question the cosmos and why he exists in the garden of love in our hearts, a map to follow.

The garden can equal several things to different hearts. Following the patterns of the stars is a really old philosophy. If you go to isolated locations beyond the city lights you may be nominated by the stars as being worthy of their view. Ancient philosophy only makes sense with cultural understanding of the lands they were philosophizing about. Here the stars are still worshiped in the architecture of Persian decent. The goddess architecture nominates the worthy royalty and takes you soaring so far towards God you hit the star they nominate the goddess under it takes your heart to the garden. All the windows face the Sun in a certain pattern, to reflect the light of God. Their ancient mythology only communicates their ancient philosophy and a protected love of God. Only those with the love of God in their hearts take you to the garden of God's divine love. Christianity was born in these lands and influenced all the other religions to follow from Hindu through to Buddhism, ancient Judaism was much older. God via the stars has always been trying to communicate love in the garden since our inception.

Tennyson's, The Lady of Shalott, part IV: And down the river's dim expanse Like some bold seer in a trance, Seeing all his own mischance- With glassy countenance Did she look to Camelot. And at the closing of the day She loosed the chain, and down she lay; The broad stream she bore far away, The Lady of Shalott. With the John William Waterhouse painting set amongst this fictional tale about romance, chivalry and being wed to royalty one wonders why the prospect of living in Camelot, a castle, presumably in Scotland in King Arthurian legend time was such a funeral that the dear lady was going to feel the water flow or have children and live in the castle, maybe a lonely life if your knight of a husband is regularly away fighting in a knightly way. The storms out there in Scottish castles must be frightening to anyone that still lives in Camelot I would not want to live there alone. Our Waterhouse river maiden must speak to the hearts of men about chivalry. I would not understand why men would think there wives to be would die in the knowing they were to be wed. Maybe their virginal dress would have to be swapped for a society uniform but who would not mind a wardrobe of a princess. Dreaming about the romance could still happen out the window. The whole poem transcribed through an Englishman's heart or for argument sake through Waterhouse via Tennyson and the Pre-Raphaelites consciousness speaks of the garden of the heart and due to the era obviously prior to marriage they were not permitted to socialize so dreams and fantasy took them forwards.

The cycle of the garden represents the seven cycles of the planets and their influence reflects who we are. Every planet appears to represent a part of the body, the feet would be the moons and the stars the heart. Every planet's cycle around the Sun would influence the plants growing in the garden and the plants we eat nominate who we are. The seasonal flowers that take our hearts to God with love in the garden are also there for our body to contribute to the heavens and the planets that circulate the Sun. Spring love with those closest to God in the garden takes your heart to him with love. God love the rosebush to love the heart full of love. Beautiful gardens are Gods way of telling us he loves us in the garden of love in our hearts and our planetary way takes us to the stars that line Heaven, the Heaven in our hearts.

John Everett Millais also painted another incredible painting about love called Isabella, 1848-1849. This painting is from Florentine Renaissance and the Lorenzo family is the subject. Isabella falls in love and her brothers become painfully jealous and kill her suitor. You feel he would have set up the family too expensively and would be no competition for the brothers, even though they would have benefitted financially. Isabella finds his body and rescues the head to plant in a pot of basil. The brothers are jealous of their sister tending the basil pot and try to get rid of the evidence, I am sure there is a moral in this tale of courtly love, we do have Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet about emotions being equalling as sinister. Society does not always breed fair demons. They just wanted to break her heart.

The Return of the Dove to the Ark, 1851, by John Everett Millais is part of the University of Oxford's Ashmolean Museum collection and is a fine painting where human psychology meets a realism of depicition. Two relatives, presumably sisters, cuddle an ailing dove and one smells his breast as though in delirium of the hay under foot. You feel they are already abreast the ark, at least of the first stage of human love. They are like the pair rather than the doves who will sail away from the society iceberg or a place not frozen over from time but by the polar caps freezing somewhere the opposite of them thawing. Only nominated by solar activity on a planet we rarely assume possible for a contribution to earth, Venus or Jupiter. Polar winds would have opposite polar effects, depending on the position of the earth on the axis. We have limited control other than planting seasonal plants in the garden, just ask your heart what you would like to see there to encourage the doves in Spring, spring flowers for the honeybees and bumbles in the brambles. The Pre-Raphaelites studied together, I wonder if they wanted to emulate the Renaissance with a kind of realism about their religion. The other sister holds a Holy Sprig more reminiscent of a bush of holly. Something like society hedges and these were gentleman mainly rather than women of learning. Their wives were not always well educated but this does not mean they were not intelligent women, simply not needed for society duties and doing anything other than making a cup of tea for society meetings at the Academy, presumably for themselves. The gardening would definitely be their concern but not their duty.

Infinite time guards the garden of the heart from a time when we first took form. When contemplating the garden, where God takes our hearts, a light is every breath and dark matter does not appear to have an input. Almost as though we travelled from some divine realm and the dark ash of creation is only ever present on earth. Time travellers for God whose spirits took an earthly shape out of the infinite. An infinite understanding of God equals the garden, the earth equals the soul and light travels down to the centre of the earth to form a vortex where the seven circles equal the abyss. God sheds light on our understanding and the gentle light in the garden of the heart takes form as divine ashes and we are then propelled into the light of Heaven.

A Jain Cosmological Map from about 1890 exists in Washington DC, Library of Congress.
This extraordinary cross of the rivers represents ancient mythology from as far back as Ancient Egypt on the Mahabharata plains where the moveable city is something akin to the Garden of Eden. Several mystical treatises would be lost from philosophy but not from the heart. Travelling through India you almost feel culturally inept. Several beautiful palaces still exist in ancient townships that have an aura of some bygone era and remnants of the gods they worship are in every temple, festivals attribute their fame and popularity. Festivals of the four rivers that cross the Ganges, thank you Lord Ganesha, I honor you with sweets. The temple is the heart.

Nicolas Poussin gave us Spring; or the Earthly Paradise (1660-1664), in the Paris, Louvre Museum. The heavenly abode to earthly life almost suggests Gods Paradisal garden is here on earth. Eve is pointing to Heaven as God flies past in a cloud and alerts Adam, they are both naked. There is almost a feeling that although they appear alone, they are not the first human inhabitants to have settled on earth. The landscape does appear Tuscan, so warm enough without clothes, the ground appears fertile and laden with earthly fruits and they appear happily in love with one another, not needing anything or anyone else around them. God seems to be giving them a blessing as he flies through the clouds, maybe on this day Eve was born from Adam for company and to establish a human race.

The rose garden is found in the garden of the heart. Gardens are lovely in Spring. God takes you to the garden of the heart to find philosophy. Your feet take you there and walk on the earth's surface, a passage through Hell to reflect Heaven. Do we think about what we walk on? The garden is furnished with love philosophy and an angel tells you the way forward, the way through to love. A reflection is needed and the geometry of the soul is our instrument. We feel the sacred garden God allows us access to is nowhere close to love in the garden and the domain in Heaven we trespass is the philosophical equation of love.

The stars tell us our divine pathway and litter the sky at night with divine explanation about who we are. For centuries the patterns of the stars have fascinated the human heart and mind. Cosmology is a science, astronomy is an art, love is the highway to God. Divinity cannot be explained only attributed to by man. God loves us for our worth to him, you are what you make of your life, to find divinity in your heart you have to provide the food, love should be a delicious meal. The ashes are on the ground in a circle so the chosen one can communicate love. Only those gifted with love can read the patterns of the stars in God's divine garden, the heavens.

The divine pathway to God took me to Rome. Although the Vatican Museums were also on this ascension, the gates to the Villa Borghese gardens was the place. Bernini had a big ego and excelled himself in his youth for the Papal ascension now housed in the Borghese museum. Along the Apian way through the gardens the National Gallery is worth a visit too. No longer are the gardens full of alley cats even though there are one or two, fortunately there is now a cat home to vaccinate stray kittens and they do a great job for the poor. Although this gateway would once have been one of the three gateways that led to Rome, all roads lead to Rome and probably did in Virgil's day, Rome was sacked in a day. Rome is a great place to view sculpture as they are not afraid of great big things or greatness. Other countries appear to have issues as they did not ever rule the world. There is still monuments and ancient buildings left from the 1st Century AD, remarkably preserved with the atmosphere of the river Tiber. This is a great place for stone sculpture, especially Carrara marble sculpture, to be housed, also, for it preserves well with a river nearby. The gardens are lovely to stroll through, especially along the pathway to the top of the city of Rome.
