Monument Valley Game and the Islam Connection: My Quest for Sacred Geometry

If you follow my youtube channel, Indigovoice82, you will know I am taking a break from making videos and being an admin of Facebook groups, or “fire starter” as I like to think of it, and creating groups for people right now. But my blog is still going to be open because I am an experessive person and need some form of creative outlet to express my truth that I have discovered. After all we each have our journey to be expressed to the fullest potential, right?

I recently  stumbled upon the wonderful little smart phone game called Monument Valley, I saw it last year , but didn’t want to pay the high price for it. This time it called to me, and I decided to download it. I am happy I did. It is a beautiful game that uses both sides of the brain, to solve puzzles. Both creative and logical side MUST work together or you will be stuck on a block forever lol.  The back story is vague, a little adorable, tiny, faceless princess seems to be on a journey to complete each level and return geometric shapes she has gained from her princess hat.

One of the little characters in there she meets has a little Sultan hat and he appears a few times to tell her a story, scold her, or guide her. There is an ancient Arabic style to this game in some of the architecture and this little storyteller character that refers to himself as “old bones”. Could this be King Solomon? But there is a deeper part of the Islam connection for me, since clothing is only a product of nation and culture, and not a spiritual path.

The  gnostic idea of “sacred geometry”, is something that many of the freemasons  base  their principals upon. Even though, the freemasons are Christians or Deists, the sacred geometry also connects to Islam. Little do they know, or don’t want to know.

Allah in the Quran creates ALL things. We do not know how or understand why. But we are given clues in the Quran that all matter is created and then returned in the End back to Allah. The game, seems to allude to this idea of “returning” all things back to the source after each level. I would say that since Allah represents the ONE, the ALL, in the Universe, then all shapes, that matter is constructed to take eventually go back too. This is the first connection.

Second connection to the game is the idea of a dead civilization that built itself on sacred geometry, but somehow lost a sense of themselves and seem trapped not able to progress to higher dimensions…perhaps their ego, pride, and gluttonous nature became too much to support their evolution of soul?

In the Quran we learn that there are many civilizations that have been destroyed by Allah, in natural ways, in order to make room for the next nation of people. And this part of “sacred geometry” becoming a downfall to society is seen in this verse:

2:102

And they followed [instead] what the devils had recited during the reign of Solomon. It was not Solomon who disbelieved, but the devils disbelieved, teaching people magic and that which was revealed to the two angels at Babylon, Harut and Marut. But the two angels do not teach anyone unless they say, “We are a trial, so do not disbelieve [by practicing magic].” And [yet] they learn from them that by which they cause separation between a man and his wife. But they do not harm anyone through it except by permission of Allah . And the people learn what harms them and does not benefit them. But the Children of Israel certainly knew that whoever purchased the magic would not have in the Hereafter any share. And wretched is that for which they sold themselves, if they only knew.

As I know, sacred geometry, has two perspectives…one is the knowledge being used in a darker way, and the other is for the self knowledge to use as a means to get closer to God. One of the darker ways of using sacred geometric knowledge is to believe that once you have this knowledge, you are God. This pulls you into the darkness of the ego, not the Light of God. I have found this to be the most limiting perspective of all. Because if you come to this point of thinking you are God, then you miss the whole point of redemption and being on earth after the fall from the Gardens, where Adam took the forbidden fruit.

No. We are not God, nor can we ever understand how to physically alter the universe with the knowledge of sacred geometry unlike many of the occultists would love to believe, and have in the past. Children of Israel were not “Jews” at this time referring to this Quran verse, this is before Moses was given the tablets, back in King Solomon’s days, when the earth was young and civilization was starting to grow into it’s boundaries.

But, like the silent princess in the game, we are all on a quest it seems to reach forgiveness of the self by Allah. We do so by having the knowledge to create the things on earth we wish to create, but then by giving it BACK to Allah in the end. Meaning there is gratitude, appreciation and yes….friendship with Allah after each creation and experience you have.

2:245

Who is it that would loan Allah a goodly loan so He may multiply it for him many times over? And it is Allah who withholds and grants abundance, and to Him you will be returned.

Sacred geometry is something I am learning right now in just realizing what it is and how there are certain shapes that create all things regarding vibrations and frequencies, in order to open my perspectives up to my past pain, present pain, and future successes. I need to go on this journey deeper to become more of an alchemist in my life, but unlike the ancient civilizations-I will never forget Allah on this quest. Allah is with me always.

Last connection to Islam is about Ida’s friend. I really like the totem character in the game, he is very helpful. In fact, so helpful that in the sequel of the game, you can not finish the last level without him. To me, that totem is the manifestation of guidance from Allah. Just as Allah HAD to send down books of guidance to our human ancestors, there is a constant need to HELP or GUIDE coming from beyond the universe. Beyond shapes, and matter….there is this energy of “helping and guiding” and that would be LOVE.

Yes, indeed Allah is Love. Love is helpful, and it helps in ways we can not sometimes perceive, until we change our perspective. Just like the little princess Ida can not move forwards or solve a puzzle until she changes perspectives as well.

Without giving too much away, I learned that in the end of the game, as I did with the Quran, it is forgiveness, redemption and heart that sets a person free from the boundaries of their body and this world.

A screen shot of this beautiful game. I highly recommend it!
