The Maltese cross, symbol of the perfect balance of the God-flame “as in heaven, so on earth,” provides a thought and energy matrix whereby the ill effects of personal and planetary karma can be brought under control and the power of virtue released in their place that mankind’s use of power might no longer corrupt life on earth.
