Triangle walks in Osiris, King of Biblos, Queen Astarte, they enwrap Osiris in sheets and put on the Mask. They lay him down and then draw the Power Lines. King Byblos and Queen Astarte Between the House of Knowledge in the Heavens and the House of Flowers we support our palace with a mighty Tree who is rooted in the earth and reaches with its branches towards the heavens. King Biblos The leafs of this Tree touch the night sky and gently caress the Goddess Nuit. Thoth In the mean time Isis is still looking for the lost body of her husband Osiris. She wanders for years, weeping and searching for the casket. Often she hears rumors that a golden coffin has been seen floating along the Nile by the inhabitants of one of the villages. She keeps following the rumors and so she crosses the border, Egypt and comes into the land of Byblos. Here the rumors speak of a wonderful tree that suddenly had started to grow on the shore, exactly on the borderline between land and sea. This news reached Isis and she becomes hopeful to finally find the body of her dead husband. Isis asks every man and woman if they have seen coffin that contains Osiris. In the end she learns that the coffin became entrapped in a tamarisk bush. As if by magic the bush shot up and became a magnificent tree. The towering tree enclosed the ornate box within its huge trunk. Isis learns that the king of Byblos fell in love with this tree so much that he had it cut down and made into a giant pillar to

support the roof of his palace. Now Isis knows for sure that the coffin came ashore here. Because of the divine presence of the Body of Osiris, the bush had sprouted and grown into a large tree, which now supports the Palace of the King. Isis and Anubis immediately travel to that palace. When they have arrived there Isis tries to come into contact with personnel of the palace. She meets the Queen’s maidens. She tells them she is an Egyptian head dresser. She pleats their hair and she breaths, and the girls get surrounded by a divine scent. This attracts the attention of Queen Astarte and the queen took a liking to her and she asked Isis to take care of her young son, the prince. In this way Isis and her son Anubis are able to enter into the palace and they find the Tree trunk. Anubis and Isis go to Malkuth of the Tree Anubis I smell a divine smell. I smell the nearness of my father. Look at this gigantic pillar, it grows right towards heaven. Isis I agree, this must be the right place to look for the body of my deceased husband. Look here to the surface of the wood, I see the gold still glittering which is the remnant of the coffin in which Osiris was captured. I will take on the job that is offered to me by Queen Astarte. I will nurture her child for her. This gives me the opportunity to be close to the tree and the coffin. At last I will be near to my husband. Astarte gives the little baby prince to Isis. I like you, you lady from Egypt; I trust you with the care for my child. I can see your fine manners; you must be a well educated lady. I think my child will be able to learn a lot of you, and of the fine manners of Egypt. Isis goes to Yesod. It is night little baby. As I take care for you I start to love you. Sleep little prince, I put you down in a soft bed of straw at the bottom of the Tree. I will weave a spell of protection about you. You will become immortal by this, you will live forever. I will start to nurture you with the divine juices of my healing hands instead of with thy mothers milk. 1 will rub your skin with the fat of salamanders. I put you in a bed of burning coals and incense. I will wrap you into a spell that will make you immortal.

Transformation into a swallow Anubis puts a little Myrrh perfume on his hand and holds it under Isis' nose as if feeding birds by hand.

She is as fragrant as the perfume of Punt Her claw is saturated with balsam How I long to do this To free Osiris with you by my side I want to be with you When he utters his cry of freedom My bird, pregnant with Myrrh. Thoth speaks while Isis lays down the baby in the bed of straw.. Isis starts a ritual that needs to be done for 28 days and then the child will shine eternal as a night star. To do this the child will sleep amidst the flames while the Goddess transforms herself into a swallow and flutters about mournfully chirping for her dead husband. In the night she brings him to the pillar where the coffin is hidden. There she lights a fire and speaks the magic words she lays down The sleeping boy in the flames.
