I have a friend who’s doing her darnedest to educate me in flowing.
Me flowing, given all my cares and concerns, is a challenging task for her to take on.
But it is having an effect.
Letting go of my commitments is not an option. I have to retain some male-energy, logical-steps approach to what will soon face me or go completely under. A monk in a business suit needs to be a quick study.
This is what I’m seeing thanks to combining the two viewpoints – hers and mine. (1)
Between two people? Flowing is a dance. At some points when my partner is up in the air, I’m on the ground holding her and at times when I go off into the wild blue yonder she grounds me. Neither of us stays up all the time or down all the time, to flow with each other.
It’s Shiva and Shakti. At least that’s the way it seems to me. And seems to have been designed.
And then the serpent of control creeps in and torrential, transformative love, the love of the Fifth Dimension, dies, choked off by going for control, rather than granting everyone their freedom.
We never seemed to learn. Once outright control became passé, we “shoulded” people to death.
We settled for cotton candy instead of love, second best, third best, until we finally couldn’t take it any more. We were better off separated and so we parted.
That’s a rather cynical view of Third-Dimensional relationship, but it seems all too common in our world as it was.
Fifth-Dimensional relationship, from the few glimpses I’ve had of it (admittedly not a well-populated database) is entirely free of control. It’s two independent beings joined together in response to a call from inside themselves and cooperating with each other to create something neither could create alone.
And they live in joy, and in love, and in bliss. And not just the weak image of love we all got used to in the Third Dimension, like we got used to macaroni and cheese or peanut butter and jam sandwiches as a child.
This would be like being in constant orgasm, torrential love flowing through us and out into the world. Can you imagine?
If you can imagine it, you can feel it. If you can feel it, you can be in it.
I used to experience this kind of love for mere minutes a year – if I was lucky. And then I experienced it for months. What is this? Is this what the masters have been talking about?
Shiva and Shakti represent the first partnership of the active Mother and the still One. She is the Phenomenal or Material and the One is the Transcendental or Void.
In its heterosexual variant, which it does not have to be, the human sacred partnership physically mimics the non-physical, transcendent Couple. And it’s meant to.
If we could follow the human act of procreation, for instance, we’d find a series of parallels to the divine process of the creation of life; i.e., the action of the One with the Mother to create us and the world. (2) Sperm equals spark. Womb equals world. Both mothers build the child’s body.
The ordinary human can choose to live alone and still find his or her divine counterpart inside, I think. I know I’ve achieved intense love without being in partnership. It’s simply much more wonderful in person.
I myself have decided to forego the pleasure of relationship for the next few years. I’m quite sure that the work that lies ahead of me will be all-consuming. I wouldn’t have the time or the energy to devote to a relationship. I’ve given the matter long thought and talked to the Mother about it.
Later, I get a 200-year vacation. And then apparently we assemble and do this all over again in a higher dimension. It turns out this is just another warm-up. (3)
Thinking about that inspires me in this time of endless waiting. Everything is a warm-up to something else. The glories of evolution are virtually endless, as Franklin Merrell-Wolff reminded us back in the middle of the last century:
“A certain Sage…, speaking of unfolded Consciousness above the level of the highest human Adepts, said: ‘We attain glimpses of Consciousness so Transcendent, rising level upon level, that the senses fairly reel before the awe-inspiring Grandeur.’
“Truly, within the Infinite there are Mysteries within Mysteries, Deeps beyond Deeps, Grandeurs beyond Grandeurs. … Mystery of Mysteries, reaching inward and outward, but ever Beyond! And from that Beyond ever there come new whisperings of other imponderable Glories. Ah! How little is this world at the beginning of the Trail, barely a point in a Space of unlimited dimensions!” (4)
“Here, certainly, is space for evolution far beyond the highest possibility of man as man.” (5)
“Beyond [the sage’s] attainment, whatever it may be, there lie further mysteries awaiting his resolution. In other words, We find no conceivable end to evolution.” (6)
(1) Remember what Michael and Sanat Kumara said: Add on, add on, rather than either/or. I’d make this the first rule of a new approach to mediation.
(2) It’s hard to talk about these matters in a few sentences. All of what I’m saying here is like chapter headings. This is the “chapter heading” I’m wrestling with now:
I cannot talk about the conditioned Brahman. Because of my ill feelings towards my Dad, I never studied the “Father” aspect of God, Vishwa, Jehovah, the God of this universe. I prefer to speak of Mahashakti and Mahashiva, the Transcendent Couple. Of course they are One.
When I therefore talk of Shakti and Shiva, in terms more common in the West, I’m speaking of the Phenomenal and the Transcendental, the Mother and the One.
(3) Archangel Michael: You will have a choice of planetary systems and it will again be an assignment to…. This is just the warm-up for Ascension. [The next assignment] is to bring a further rising of vibrations to those throughout the Universe. (Archangel Michael in a personal reading with Steve Beckow through Linda Dillon, Sept. 16, 2011.)
Archangel Michael: As I have said to you, when you complete this mission, you are allowed to have 200 years off. But what you do with that is up to you, dear one! You will certainly have full access to your inter-dimensionality. (Ibid., Dec. 18, 2012.)
