I’m greatly impacted by Serapis Bey’s interview on An Hour with an Angel this week.
Not like I was aware of it until he spoke, but every soul that we’ve had on the program up till now has put forward the point of view usually associated with the divine feminine – let go, don’t resist, surrender, flow.
Serapis Bey uniquely put forward the viewpoint I’d associate with the divine masculine – persevere, be disciplined, have a determined will, push through to the end.
One of his past lives was as Leonidas, King of Sparta, who, with 300 others, stood off the Persian army at the Pass of Thermopylae. Leonidas is known for his iron will.
He couples that with purity of intention. His intention is to serve the Divine Mother.
His will is not directed against anybody, except perhaps himself. It’s directed to achieving the Will of the Mother. It’s my surmise that a will truly bent to the service of the Mother would have lost the ability to harm.
He said that there was no room in lightwork for self-aggrandizement. He pointed out that everything the Ascension aspirant does is in service to the Divine Mother, not the ego.
If someone was still into those vibrations, they’d be unable to serve, he said. And the Company of Heaven would probably not use them. He spoke very candidly.
He said that the divine masculine was meant to serve the divine feminine – and vice versa. The genders were meant to cooperate. This cooperation is what is missing and what the rebalancing that is being done now is designed to restore.
What I took away from the discussion was that the gifts of the divine masculine were to be made freely available to the divine feminine, and vice versa. There was to be some specialization of function (child-birthing, child-rearing, for instance), offset by the free service of one to the other – in marriages, communities, and so on.
The way he knit the vision together inspired thoughts in me of King Arthur’s Camelot, the finest of chivalry, Biblical communities, intentional communities. There has always been something about these chivalric stories that appealed to me. As a young child, I was reading tales of chivalric knights – Ivanhoe, Roland, the knights of the Roundtable.
One thing I think they got right was that the chivalric knight served the woman. If the woman served the knight too, the balance would have been captured. But men chose to subjugate the woman.
We had one gender’s service being demanded of it (the feminine) and the other not extending service in return (the masculine). Everything is out of step with universal law and creates nothing but residue of resentment. Patriarchy rested on a foundation of subservience, which could never stand. In my view, it saw the complete breakdown of the way the genders were divinely meant to relate.
Our relationships were filled with drama, which became the stuff of our nightly entertainment. We hated the drama in our lives but laughed at the drama portrayed on TV.
We were stuck in a cycle of drama. No love can be found there.
To borrow Archangel Michael’s expression, this way of being is being “re-gridded” to rebalance it, to re-establish the mutual connection of the genders through love and service to each other. All of us have a chance to lead in this brand-new expansion in the meaning of humanness, happening around us.
A second memory was aroused in me by Serapis’ words: Perhaps a peculiarly male side of life – the love of discipline. His discussion of discipline as consistency took me right back to the karate dojo. You had to be self-disciplined if you were throwing kicks and punches around.
I so loved what I could do with my body in karate. And the essence of karate was discipline.
Of course, the discipline he’s referring to is self-discipline. It has nothing to do with others. It’s not a licence to dominate. What discipline produces is designed to be used in servic
What he reminded me of was that discipline required a consistent regimen from us for the constant practice that made for a starburst of understanding and the mastery of … a discipline. Olympic athletes practice it. Ascension seekers practice it. Serapis called it the fast route and offered to guide anyone on it who asked him. (Yes, I did ask him mentally to initiate me in the discipline.)
He re-awakened a sense of the divine masculine in me (both genders have it), which I’d been resisting and suppressing for a very long time. He gave me permission to reconnect with it, under altered conditions. There’d be no more parasitic feeding of the male upon the female.
The gender bond has to be one of mutual loving service, and that in itself leading to service of the Divine Mother. Transformative love would make the difference between swimming against the Third-Dimensional tide and sailing on smooth waters.
Without both genders serving the other, the train goes off the rails. For men especially, this’ll be an adjustment, a rediscovery of ethics, honor, and self-control. For women, I imagine it’ll primarily be a test of forgiveness and then of wanting patriarchy to stop.
