I feel like autumn. As the leaves fall, so do my pretenses. My positionalities related to the world externa. As I watch the butterflies flit amongst the milkweed both feeding and laying eggs for chrysalis into a new life, I am reminded that in a world of constant becoming from ectopy to entropy, the dissolutive forces of life unfold, break down and shift into something altogether new.
Nature is my great teacher as I observe Her processes interwoven into my own life. A constant cascade of happenings so subtle, so dire that these transformative forces ignite the greater passions of my Soul as I surrender unto the sheathing process that brings me closer to myself as the One that is always becoming ever alive with God! I AM!
The First time I died was so long ago, it is barely memorable in the long stream of my Soul knowing. So much overlap from multiple life experiences almost make it a blended streaming, a convolution of exacting memory.
Perhaps I should count the deaths, the losses that were mini deaths, the surrendering unto the unfolding of Almighty Grace that were in itself many deaths that would catapult me unto a new life steaming.
Upon my second Soul cycle, the lineation’s that bound me to precipitous experiences to an age of wisdom now in reign. The boundless light of the Soul is ever in progression, always reviewing and even sometimes turning back in descension or de-evolution. Such paths are ultimately the teachers in the Soul’s quest for greater experience in the horizontal life. The linear urging of the human vessel is to unite with the divine spark of its inhabitant in a most visceral level, otherwise the Soul aspiration for flesh experience goes wholly unnoticed, as the precipitous urges of the body take over the Souls desire to indwell it towards its own benefit and growth.
How many times those losses came – the endings that brought new Beginnings. The pain that brought new light of awareness. The release of a dead child from my arms, twins from my womb, from my heart. So many children, so many lives. Motherhood gives birth, but is also a death of the autonomous self to another’s dependence. The symbiosis of the entwined Soul in utero offers a special unity in the life streaming.
And from all those shared experiences at the extension of another – children, lovers, family and friends. The lovers, most poignant, as it is the lover that there is surrender, a small death at a most intimate level. The collapsing in the remembrance of the divine bliss that fills the spirit. Yet, after a while, the lovers go, too. And there is the mirror, the self facing Self.
In that ultimate recognition, of reunification, there is yet another death. A death of personhood, the small self or ego predominance in submission to the “I”. The “I” of the Soul, the real Self, the true mother, lover, friend, and guide. All of these losses and small deaths are but preparation of the Soul’s submersion into the almighty I AM.
On the path of initiation, life and death is a constant cycle of Becoming – a knowing and strange comfort in the chrysalis into something new and more beautiful than before. The awareness that Life is eternal and begins and ends, like the ebb and flow of the waters of life, the yin and yang inflow into the other, none and one at the same time.
I remember the first time I died and yet, I will again, and again and again!
The sky was animated when I Iooked up. T’is almost a full moon. Her light reflected off of me into thinking of you. The winds of change spoke of good news… The clouds were hurried…but they showed me a story… “things are not always as they seem…within movement comes a silver lining.” The ocean wise and deep splashed forth…showed me process in ebb and flow. I queried upon the stars…they spoke of truth. I walked the land to feel her heartbeat…she helped me design a path! I turned to fathom the last embrace…the warm embers of Fire. I feel your head rumbling…is everything okay?
We enter the earth plane fortified by the waters of life. Their magnetic forces imprint into our bodies a stream of beliefs carried from the past, vows and future contracts. Our minds are impressionable and conditioned by the part of the world we live in with its religious and cultural mores. Education or the lack of resources partakes in creating an external image of self. These factors and more shape our world, but none actually authenticates who we really are. Our faulty beliefs about self and the world we live are outgrown and ineffective as we dawn into a new awareness, a new world.
The tensions of inner and outer conflict are felt more than ever before as the world we once knew crumbles around us. As the Earth body reacclimatizes and the human family enters a reorganization of mind erecting new ideas, innovation and opportunity, we are each called to enter into a new heart of being. Linking the mind and the heart is the healing balm for humanity. It is the gateway to the fiery corridor in the purifactory process. A radical cleansing that none can escape. To walk through the corridor we must claim our courage. The level of our courage or resistance is directly proportional to how much we are liberated.
Friction between two opposing forces creates fire. Fire is the element of purification. When we consciously choose to no longer oppose ourselves, we forgive and surrender to the fire. First, dissolution must occur to allow for healing reorganization. As we surrender to the embers layers of our resistance burn away – we let go of attachments to our faulty beliefs that bind us in fear and pain. Once the smoke has cleared, we feel a congruency in what we think, feel, say and do. Healing reorganization aligns us into a freer, more truthful expression of self.
With a spirit of commitment, persistence, and focused action, we are encouraged to deepen, to remove yet another layer of resistance. The fires of purification rage as the primal ego demonically thrashes in a final attempt for control in dissolving the illusions of the false self. A new face emerges – exuberant, self-accepting, creative, and abundant in compassion and love. Out of this purified space, the will of the personality and the Soul desires integrate into creative union.
With freedom to cultivate, the all-consuming sacred flame burns brighter within. Fortified by the flame we initiate into the connective force of love and compassion to serve world cause via the embodiment of our Greater Self.
….”Spiritual” refers not only to experiences traditionally considered religious, but to all states of awareness, all the human functions and activities which have as the common denominator the possession of values higher than average—values such as the ethical, the aesthetic, the heroic, the humanitarian, and the altruistic.~ Robert Assagioli, Synthesis—The Realization of the Self
The Law of Spiritual Approach governs the basic impulse to push forward to create and live in a more harmonious and spiritually anchored world. In the collective urge for self-betterment those who stand in their own truth have set aside personal agendas and place the “highest and best good for the human race as a whole” in the forefront of any other focus. This means that separatist dogmas of exclusivity are replaced with spiritual insights into the underlying Laws and Principles of inclusive awareness. Inclusive awareness begins with an understanding of those Laws if we are to be successful in our intentional creations. Many are just learning to apply these laws in their daily lives, while many of us are actively utilizing the laws to cause the flow of experience to change world direction into higher vibration.
Never before has there been greater spiritual expression insofar as the pursuit of our spiritual aspirations and never so many technologies, methodologies and practices to help us awaken our intuitive faculties. Inasmuch, there are also forces that suppress our aspirations and free technologies available that could liberate us from dependence on so many levels. Such forces purposely overlay the true situation with false and distorted representations to confuse and promote fear. The ignorant, confused and frightened masses are easy to control. In fact, the sycophant banks on the masses never waking up as they provide every distraction to keep focus on the outer life and attention away from cultivating the beauty of ones inner jewel.
We can break through the ceiling and climb out of the box of limitation and discover that the true “purpose of conscious awareness is expansion of wisdom through experiencing knowledge to that higher level. The creation of conscious awareness is only possible through the expansive process of creative thought focused to magnify the originating energy source.” The struggle and perseverance of World Teachers have left behind a scaffold to help us climb out of the box and expand beyond the confines of our conditioning.
For those who are awake and those awakening from transgenerational conditioning that is not based upon authentic reality, but a preconstructed reality (PATRIX) that has been imposed for thousands of years, we wonder how we can break from its spell to create a new world paradigm? For any system of control to become successful there needs to be consensus, which means that humanity has agreed to accept our current reality, good, bad or indifferent. The plan is self-perpetuated by humanity itself. Thankfully, self–aware consciousness is not powerless. Realities can change when there is understanding of how Universal Law operates. However, such a directional change towards higher values inevitably entails a period of chaos within the established current. This is the real challenge inasmuch that it is innate to walk the path of least resistance—to accept the status quo even when the status quo does not serve freedom. Yet, in order to change the momentum there must be a 180-degree focal shift in order to divert the current direction of usurpation—that is the completion of the plan for enslavement. Wherever we are at within the evolutionary impulse of life, it moves forward waiting for no one or thing. So, we either wake up or we ALL suffer the consequences of our self-denial.
With so many stages of consciousness, how can we come into agreement as how to change the current world direction? There needs to be no formal agreement. All that is necessary is a desire to change/end the existing paradigm. If in fact we ALL came into united agreement (focus) the collective vibration would be high enough to disintegrate the current experience. We have work to do.
There are four vital principles to guide our way:
The Law of Magnetic Appeal: Like magnetizes like.
The Law of Deliberate Intent: What is intended and held resolutely within thought, word & deed manifests.
The Law of Allowance: Allowing what is intended to manifest while using the observer mode to be awake and aware while continuing to hold the focus without being rigid as to the outcome. (Allowing thought to think).
The Law of Balance: Allowing the first three laws and focusing within the present moment.
The Laws are immutable and follow the path of least resistance. Abide in its rhythm for harmony and accordance with the greater spiritual realties of our planetary inheritance.
From the heart of creation emanates a holographic force field that underlies the fabric of existence in its many dimensional levels. It connects all life that has ever been, is, and of the future and is the pathway back to Source. This force is so great and will always prevail over of the seeming—the circumstances that we perceive as suffering, devastation, and war that is a thread in the divisive seam of time, an occurring part in the whole system of creation that we call reality.
The glue that holds this One Life together is LOVE. Love is the Master Grid that ensures the appropriate distribution of life-force energy that provides the templates needed for material creation, and is the physicalized expression of the sacred code of creation itself. Love is the blueprint of consciousness expressed in harmonic form. The Love principle is an example of feminine spiritual heart energy or compassion held within and completely embodied in the physicality and lived as that light essence.
Each of us has a force field around us—a personal grid that connects us to the Unity Grid, the Earth Grid and the Mass Consciousness Grid. Tapping into a particular grid will reveal its particular expression.
The current mass consciousness grid or template misuses spiritual masculine force in the expression of life energy. Resonating within this collective energy field is how we have a shared experience on the planet. There is no wonder that its lower vibration provides the channel way to spread divisiveness through fear, pain, stagnation, war, poverty, hunger, disease and victimhood.
There are myriad belief structures or programs that are not necessarily true or provide the “only” alternative to the way life must be. We all have the same potential within us to live our higher Self—to embody a new awareness. To be fully aware in the body as indwelling souls that operates at a higher reality of ideals rather than standards. Embodying the awareness, this knowing as that, is the journey of our existence. The biggest illusion that we must disengage from —to make the break from the mass conscious survivalist grid to the Master Grid of Unity Consciousness —is the illusion of separation. We are all divinely interconnected.
Since we each are connected to the Master Grid we, too can live as an expression of the sublime. We can choose which field of expression to live, move and have our being. Ultimate reality states that we are Love.
All of life is in polarity-that is, in relationship to its opposite or polar energy and our level of connectivity in relation to it. For instance, our relationship in opposition to the social structures set into place. The disconnection or division comes from having to labor our living at the expense of our creative soul urge. Life demands that we work and pay taxes for our keep and yet this causes a drain on our life force creating exhaustion, dis-ease and aberrations. The balance, of course, between the two polarities would be to find right livelihood…in so many terms, to “Live our Bliss.”
The second opposition that we struggle with is our relationship to our environment. With the first opposition in concretization, there is little time for connection with nature outside office buildings. In cars, we come and go to the workplace, the mall, grocery stores and so on. We pass by what is left of nature around us. We are disconnected because there is no real connection to the environment. This lack of connectivity to nature causes us to disengage from vital life preserving forces that through connection would align us by default to the greater rhythm of our planetary body and the Kosmic circuit in which it resides. Harmonizing with nature whether by walking through a park, gardening, or even honoring the moons monthly cycles puts us in touch with the greater rhythm that has become so elusive in our busy lives.
The polarity continues as we move within because what we see that is not right in society is actually a reflection of the collective mindset in a particular area. This points us in the direction of looking at that which is not right within us. Inner conflict runs between extremes. On one end of the polarity spectrum there is total withdrawal expressed as narcissism in the personality complex. The narcissistic defense mechanism is one that detaches emotions from intimate forms of connectivity with a need to control life, people and circumstances. Functioning from the head, the focus is most often on material gain or position while the emotions are withdrawn from the needs of self and others. Sensitivity and inner sight of the authentic nature is lost and life is superficial and myopic. However, for every control freak there is a counterpart to play out the role of victimhood or supplicant. This is best expressed in the co-dependent and addictive mindset whose intense emotional grasping to things, people and circumstances causes them to lose sight of their deepest needs and desires as a human being. Again with the focus powered onto the object of ones attention-things, people, drugs and alcohol, money and gambling, clothes and glamour, thoughts, and so on, the fulfillment of the immediate need causes the mind to skim only the surface of self, others and life. Both expressions, one overly mental and one emotional, produce disjointed human beings. When time is not taken to examine what is right and not right within us, we live miserable, lonely and loveless lives. Passion for life’s gifts, mysteries or energy to investigate them is lost, as life energy is disconnected from the Kosmos, nature and self…and slowly the spirit within is asphyxiated from lack of connection to the wellspring of life. The spirit within is the nexus of our existence – it is the force that animates our body, the Promethian Spark that gives life and substance to an otherwise lifeless body.
The next polarity and perhaps the most vital, as it moves to the very core of our existence is between the human being in relation to spirit – the polarity between resistance to living our inner light and fully embracing our divinity. The question is “Who are you in relationship to this borrowed body whose name you call yourself?” “Are you the body or the dweller within the body?” This apparent disconnection to the source of our being is the very peril that binds us from liberation. Our mental constraints take the lead setting parameters when the soul is timeless and without human boundary. The soul’s limitless space reflects the potential of our human capacity. Our connection to the source of our divinity is the stuff that all of life is made. In this space or void, the boundaryless fairway of existence is the opposite spectrum of our human struggle – the brain that divides, bifurcates, separates and sections off with an attachment to ways of perceiving and living. Finally, the polarity of the soul in relation to Spirit – between the souls urge to immerse back into Sources spiraling well of energy as One Life or attachment to the souls sheath.
In all these levels of connectivity and separateness are layers and layers of differentiation between them. The balance point always meets at the neutral middle – the center path of heart where there is acceptance in the reflection of the other. It is the point of light within us that is wise, creative, joyful and loving. This sacred point of light that is the true self within is the initiator between extremes, the conjoiner of opposites – the multitude of polarities that exists on this plane. When we arise from the heart of neutrality, the true center of reality we act as the center point between Heaven and Earth.
“That which appears is not always that which truly is; that which rends and disrupts the personality life is frequently the agent of release, if rightly apprehended; that which will emerge when the Forces of Light have penetrated the world of darkness, will demonstrate the nature of the undying human spirit.” ~Ponder on This, A Compilation
Polarity refers to all the dualities that we are and experience that reflects the need of every human to extend and combine with the polar opposite to create growth. Duality is the relationship between two seemingly contradictory views or emotions, thoughts or dichotomous behaviors that forms a “hole” within the whole. While everything contains within it the essence of its opposite, duality is an illusion of the mind that prevents the integration of opposing parts. In reality, it simply refers to relationships between two bodies of consciousness.
Duality is the illusion that we think we are separate from our source of wholeness. We believe this because we struggle with so much opposition that it seems as if there are only two points of view and that our survival depends upon them. For example, the primary mass cleavage is in the connection between self and planet Earth and the extremes between plentitude and scarcity represented in the world, which is reflective of an inner opposition of acceptance and connection with all that is. In order to be healthy in life we must balance our tendencies with their opposing forces in nature by remaining flexible so that we may attune into the heart of the greater planetary rhythm that rides in tandem with the Kosmic forces of our Universe. When we make this heavenly connection, we are open to receive from the light above, the Will of Divine Grace and begin to function as an instrument along the evolutionary pathway that awakens into the Heart of the Divine Plan.
When our opposites are brought into balance, we feel a sense of wholeness, unity and completion. With balance comes emotional integration and freedom from inner conflict of what we think, feel, say and do, which means that we have finally brought a sense of peace within the diversity of our nature. Integration of our lower bodies (physical, emotional and mental) means that we free ourselves from the patterned conditionings and ways of acting that are out of balance because they do not support our highest good. When we respond out of love in situations than react out of preprogrammed ways of living life we strengthen our core self. Living a conditioned life deplete of our true expression is a distortion of who we are and is therefore, out of balance with our essential self. This imbalance reflects within our body system, as all unbalanced thoughts and feelings do in acute or chronic situations.
Polarity also expresses as an opposing energy when we want to be other than our selves, different than we are. Here we project how we want to appear to the world. In extreme polarity, we are opposite our self in nature and assume a dominant energy expression or pattern that runs the personality counter to its souls urge. Take for example, the reflection of our selves perceived through a mirror. The effect that we see in the mirror is a reflection that is opposite or inverted. It does not project reality as it is, rather than reflect our perception that appears as reality. These false realities become our projecting patterns that move us through life totally unaware of everything because we are too caught up in ourselves to put the mirror down. Even though energy patterns of expression shift in different areas of our lives, they persist because the emotional body is ever malleable. While the pattern may appear to be subtle in one area of our life, it is often recognizable in another. When we are constantly postured in defense to guard our falsehoods we are unable to hear praise, constructive criticism, be open to affection and quality friendships because we reject taking chances towards fulfillment, of beauty in our lives, money or even to hear the message in our illness. Contractedness from life keeps our field closed from the ability to tap into the flowing circuit of prosperity emanating from the Universal Law of Balance.
The Universal Law of Balance concerns the generative cycle of giving and receiving that flows through the aggressive and receptive energies of the masculine and feminine principle as they fuse together to form the spontaneous compassionate heart. True giving is the expression of our value. It flows easily when we are in fullness rather than depletion. For instance, we may give to others with obligation or calculation with the intent of receiving accolades or as a way to push us further along in our aspirations. However, this act is grasping because it clings to a need behind the act, which is often compulsory and fueled by an inner emptiness that stems from our feelings of unworthiness. Addictions of all kinds thrive on this attitude of neediness, which does not allow spontaneous giving to occur and therefore inhibits or short-circuits the generative cycle of giving and receiving.
The heavens are in motion, but are we stuck in the past, projecting into the future or in the ever-present NOW of co-creation? Where our minds dwell most of the time is the platform upon which our decisions are made. They are what make up our beliefs about ourselves and the world around us.
Imagine living a liberated life free from constraint-free of self-imposed suffering.
While it is apparent that most souls operate unconsciously and thus, get caught up in the drama and reenactment of painful experiences rather than making efforts to detach more and more from their cherished beliefs, there is a challenge to be conscious of the lessons brought to the surface in life.
If souls upon their own volition looked beyond the era of time and customs in which they live, they would be more apt to move beyond the transgenerational conditioning of beliefs at the core, genetic, history & soul levels to increasing levels of awareness of unity. Instead, the choice to suffer through identification with the physical body, the clinging to pain that human-made conditioning brings in order to feel secure, keeps us in bondage.
Yet, if we create distance between clinging and release, we clearly see our habituations for what they are and can dissolve whatever needs to be uprooted as it rises to the conscious mind. The Universe provides this maturing process for us so that we may incorporate lessons to expand our consciousness and purpose in life to new levels of understanding.
We each are afforded opportunities to change our perception – to return to our natural awareness of interconnectedness by staying attuned with the “Law of the One Life.” The natural law of interconnectedness has never changed, only our perception has.
The theme of spiritual law and principle that we are all interconnected is obvious. However, the choice to align with and cultivate Unity Consciousness is solely ours. Will we open to our deep inner truths or will we veil our eyes for more illusions if truth brings up too much insecurity? Will we grossly distort sexuality by separating spirit and flesh thus, producing aberrations or will we harness its energy to consummate with Spirit? How will we create? Will we manufacture war or make peace? Essentially, what we each must ponder is the strength of our separating desires to those desires that unify in love. Which is stronger within us on both the individual and collective levels?
Invoke that Universal Timeless Truth be revealed to you. Then make your best efforts to walk your talk. Treat the planet as sacred and find new ways to honor all its beings. Create small circles of community that expand to larger and larger circles of activity. Seize the opportunity to actualize unity in diversity.
