Using rocks and minerals to heal the earth and us.

On the first link you provided the piece is identified as a scene of "hierogamy".

I looked it up and found this:

8. What is "hierogamy"?

"Hierogamy" comes from the Greek word "hieros" which means "sacred" and from "gamos" which means "marriage". Although according to esoteric doctrine, it refers to marriage to the Lord's Anointed, it can be applied, generally, to all Christians who enter into the kind of marriage which is sanctified by the Bride/Bridegroom typology of the Bible.

Principally, hierogamy is a symbolic (or platonic) marriage which focuses on the unity of soul which is manifested in the Blessed Trinity and which is meant to be imaged in the earthly family.

Hierogamy comes from a custom of the Early Church which required the bishop to be "a husband to the widow, and father to the fatherless". As Christ's representative, he was their "kinsman-redeemer" (see the book of Ruth)."

The above scene appears to me to be an older man straddled by a younger man, with another man standing behind.  Or are the circles on the chest signifying breasts?

Your second link says:

Divine Marriage
Sexual union between the goddess daughter and the hero son. The mother of the gods stands beside them.

Interesting....Must be breasts!

Thus ye may find in thy mental and spiritual self, ye can make thyself just as happy or just as miserable as ye like. How miserable do ye want to be?......For you GROW to heaven, you don't GO to heaven. It is within thine own conscience that ye grow there.
