She is Solitary

Earlier this month I wrote Emotions and Motivations,  and in today's post will  unpack further this topic.  I want to share  something I wrote last year (in another cyber address) in order  to show  that the Sacred Feminine  within our inner-most being  (our eternal self-Soul's Intelligence)  is pregnant with  super motivations  and  super emotions.  And when  we reach this (permanent)  state/stage of being, expression of this  Intelligence feels very natural. . .
Some  hang  their psychological projections  on me --  think,  'spiritual bypassing' is alive and well in me, because they can't imagine it is possible to be  genuinely nice -- and there is nothing I can do about it.
  *  Spiritual bypassing is about using spiritual beliefs to avoid dealing with painful feeling/unresolved childhood issues / developmental needs.

                                                            *

Spiritual Joy  is the  balanced Yin/Yang  (feminine/masculine) aspect within our being capable of   housing 'super emotions'  and it's counterpart 'super motivations'.  This  Energy is like the  Wind beneath our Angel wings (symbolically speaking)  that carries one's Action and Compassionate Caring into the world of Form.
I had no names for what  motivated  my  feelings  during those very intense years.  I was very much aware  that the High Priestess archetype  (in me) compelled me to perform many  ceremonial rituals with tear-producing  sincerity whose noble aims had everything to do with:  'for the benefit of others' . . . The only thing I  ever asked for myself was: Not Mine, Your Will Be Done!   (*this is about 'natural' surrender to Divine Will because my  heart was broken open.)

This Sacred Feminine archetype is the symbol of one's balanced masculine and feminine energies.
Neither dominating/controlling  or passive. 
She is the mediator of the passage into Reality's supramental Depth. .  . This inner-Guide's serenity, clear-seeing, wisdom and high intuition, has been my Guiding Light (*is everyone's Guide when you get in touch with it).   Her only Intention is to Serve all beings in all domains of life.
She doesn't crave to be seen, doesn't seek attention from others. . .
She desires to give  away everything, expecting to receive nothing in return.
She is Solitary. . .

Thank You!

This blog got a major makeover thanks to Stefano Mori. When he offered to do this for me, I was quite overwhelmed by such  spirit of generosity and politely declined.  He  said  to let him know should I change my mind.   .   . And I did.
Stefano  lives in the U.K. and his brilliant mind  remotely performed this  (to me) incomprehensible feat last year.   To this day I am in awe of  his 'artistic talent'  each time I come here. I could have written this Thank You note months earlier. . . In the spirit of  'it's better late then never' - and since I got his permission to mention his name -  today seems like a good day to do this.

I want to include (excerpt)  from my  email to Stefano.

I'm dropping in - have been meaning to for some time - that the more I hang out in my blog deleting and edit-improving, the more I like its overall appearance. It's hard to describe the feeling I get when looking at a post in its improved edit-form. . .I think the word 'tranquil' comes closest.
The white text against the soft blue background and the feather image look oh-so-tranquil, and I love it!   😊
Thank you very much for ALL that you have done for me, Stefano! I really, really appreciate your artistic talent and all the effort it took to create this type of cyber magic!

Communication of the Divine from the Source of its Nature

While ago I chanced upon Joseph Alexander's (video)  critiquing the film titled Zeitgeist (didn't see it)  directed by Peter Joseph, who managed to:  "reduce the phenomenon of religion to an ancient form of plagiary and sun worship"  -  and thought it might be an interesting topic for the not faint of heart.
Will  add, I completely agree with Joseph's analysis based on personal (mystical) experience and their contemplative conclusions  because:   he paints an entirely new picture of the ancient myths and religion, showing that myths not only have a biological basis, but are also doorways into the evolutionary goal of our species.

All ascended mystics shared their Depth data with the intention to inspire and uplift others in order they  may aspire to reach their highest potential.
I will  include several  quotes from Joseph's video and  include links to three of my key posts on same theme.

It is true that a large portion of mythology and religious scriptures fall into the origins category. These are narratives which recount the story of creation, either of the first humans or of primal earth - and personification of natural forces into gods. However, the most important category of mythology - and also most overlooked were ignored, is also the most obvious -- an interpretation of spiritual awakening and expansion of consciousness. This is the real secret of ancient myths.

Isis, Osiris, Horus and Seth were not just  vegetation or solar gods, they were symbolic representation of the different archetypes within the human soul. Isis represented the power of transformation and the virgin birth which is a symbol of sublimated sexual energy.

These symbols are communicated from inner planes of consciousness, which seek to guide humanity on the right path in order to transform the human body into a perfect instrument of Soul expression. As if from a cosmic seed, humanity is unfolding on this planet, destined to bloom into a cosmic conscious species. The sun and solar disc are more then just symbol of our planetary star - they are both iconic images (* High Archetypes)  analogous to mystical illumination expressing radiance of one who has entered into the state of Samadhi, or  Cosmic Consciousness.

In the case of the god RA, the golden disc sits on top of its head. Likewise, Isis is depicted with the white moon disc on her head - these head ornaments correspond to male and female archetypal energies, and the colors experienced in meditation.  This spiritual interpretation of the solar disc, as the mechanism responsible for inner illumination is more in line with the core teaching of ancient Egypt.  If the solar disc is simply a sun why would it be encircled by a Serpent.   (* Serpent /  some call  it the Knowledge Giver is the symbol for sublimated sexual energy).

Today, the greatest tragedy is not crimes committed by the religious establishment, or the international banking system, but by the tragic ignorance of our spiritual destiny. The real solution and road to happiness have always laid in knowledge of  one Self.

Emotions & Motivations

Not all Visions  and mystical experiences have equal value because they come from different Mind-planes.  Based on  first-hand experiences, some  have the power-capacity to  directly plug one to the domain of Consciousness they originate from, others do  not.

All values, all ranking  and all judging are not equal  -   this is why in the court of law  (for instance) the judge doesn't  place behind prison bars  someone for 10 years, for stealing  bicycle.

Not all feelings and motivations are  equal, either.
I appreciate and agree completely  with  Ken Wilber's insight  the role   motivations and  emotions  play,  when  enacted from  a deeper/subtler sense-awareness.  I like that he used Aurobindo's  model to  highlight why  this topic is important -  why it ought to matter very much to spiritual practitioners.  Not  many people are aware of this, this is why I am  more then glad to  share what he said in:  What is Enlightenment magazine - The Guru and the Pandit, article (2005):

When Aurobindo talks about  intuitive mind and overmind and supermind, it's very telling that he uses the word mind. Because you can also say that there are intuitive emotions, and over-emotions, and super-emotions. The same with motivation -- there's intuitive motivation and over-motivation and super-motivation. So there are all those other lines of development that go up the hill with the mind line, or cognitive line.
But we still find that the cognitive line is usually necessary for these other lines to stick. If you don't have intuitive mind awakened, and overmind awakened, and supermind awakened, the emotions won't stick up there -- they'll come and go. And the higher motivations won't stick -- they'll come and go.

* Want to add that people who hanker after worldly status, admiration and such, are  not ready to  embody 'higher  motivations and emotions'.  Saint-like simple folk, are another story.  

                                                              *

This is  how Aurobindo described  the (intuitive)  Illumined mind, Overmind and Supermind:

1.    The Illumined Mind does not work primary by thought, but by vision; thought is here only a subordinate movement expressive of sight. The human mind, which relics mainly by thought is secondary and not indispensable process. In its form of verbal thought, it can almost be described as a concession made by knowledge  to the Ignorance.  +   Illumined Mind is the vehicle through which the Divine Light and Power come down to be transmitted to the human consciousness and from there they work and prepare the transformation of the human consciousness and even the physical nature.

2.   At the source of . . . Intuition we discover a superconscient Mind in direct contact with the supramental Truth-Consciousness, an original intensity determined of all movements below it and all mental energies -- not Mind as we know it, but an overmind that covers as with the wide wings of some creative Oversoul this whole lower hemisphere its brilliant golden Lid it veils the face of the greater Truth from our sight, intervening with its flood of infinite possibilities as at once an obstacle and a Power that at once connects and divides the supreme Knowledge and the cosmic Ignorance.

3.   The essential character of Supermind is a Truth-Consciousness which knows by its own inherent nature, by its own Light; it has not to arrive at knowledge but possess it. +
Supermind is an eternal reality of the divine Being and the divine Nature.

Gnostic Being

Couple of days ago I read first time a  passages from  Sri Aurobindo's chapter in: The Life Divine titled The Knowlegde and the Spiritual Evolution, and  realized he described perfectly  the relation between Supermind and  Ananda (*Bliss).   I have been talking about  "Supermind and its Bliss",  and  the effect it has on me,  but never was able to articulate its  nuance . . .No wonder some of us say he was a "giant of consciousness."

With grateful heart I want to include few quote-snippets, but not before I say/include the following - lest I get accused of suffering from 'megalomania' - something I wrote in post titled Soul Level Spirituality - penned in September 2016.

You are making a great mistake to think that one who reached this (permanent) Ultimate Consummation stage/point, is interested in flaunting one's 'magnificence'. Such motive is foreign to me/us. Such notion comes from egoistic conception. What I share is the Natural Result of  a very long and hard Soul-journey through space/time. This is the Communication of the Divine from the source of its Nature, that's why it feels very natural to innocently write about this. . .For the benefit of all beings, for the benefit of evolution of consciousness in Service to the Divine.

"The spiritual man is one who has discovered his soul: he has found his self and lives in that, is conscious of it, has the joy of it; he needs nothing external for his completeness of existence.
The gnostic being starting from this new basis takes up our ignorant becoming and turns it into a luminous becoming of knowledge and a realised power of being. All therefore that is our attempt to be in Ignorance, he will fulfill in the Knowledge, all power and action of the self-force of being, all delight into universal delight of self-existence.
Attachment and bondage will fall away, because at each step and in each thing there will be the full satisfaction of self-existence, the light of existence fulfilling itself, the ecstasy of delight of existence finding itself.
Each step of evolution in the knowledge will be unfolding of this power power and will of being and this joy to be, a free becoming supported by the sense of the Infinite, the bliss of Brahman, the luminous sanction of the Transcendence.

"(But) in the gnostic way of being and living the will of the Spirit must directly control and determine the movements and the law of the body. For the law of the body arises from the subconscient or inconcient:  but in the gnostic being the subconscient will have become conscious and subject to the supramental control, penetrated with its light and action...

"The body will be turned by the power of spiritual consciousness into a true and fit and perfectly responsive instrument of the Spirit.

"The Supermind itself in the descending degrees of the manifestation emerges from the Ananda.
It is not, indeed, merged in the sense of of being extinguished or abolished but inherent in it, indistinguishable from the self of awareness and the self-effectuating force of the Bliss of Being.
In the involutionary descent as in the evolutionary return Supermind is supported by the original Delight of Existence and carries that in it all its activities as their sustaining essence; for Consciousness, we may say, is its parent power of the Spirit, but Ananda is the spiritual matrix from which it manifests and the maintaining source  into which it carries back the soul in its return to the status of the Spirit.
A supramental manifestation in its ascent would have as a next sequence and culmination of self-result a manifestation of the Bliss of the Brahman: the evolution of the being of gnosis would be followed by an evolution of the being of Bliss; an embodiment of gnostic existence would have as its consequence an embodiment of the beatific  existence.

"It has been held that ecstasy is a lower and transient passage, the peace of the Supreme is the supreme realisation, the consummate abiding experience. This may be true on the spiritual-mind plane: there the first ecstasy felt is indeed a spiritual rapture, but it can be and is very usually mingled with a supreme happiness of the vital parts taken up by the Spirit; there is an exaltation, excitement, a highest intensity of the joy of the heart and the pure inner soul-sensation, that can be a splendid passage or an uplifting force but it is not the ultimate permanent foundation.
But in the highest ascents of the spiritual bliss there is not the vehement exaltation and excitement; there is instead an illimitable intensity of participation  (*yes - key word 'participation') in an eternal ecstasy which is founded on the eternal Existence and therefore on a beatific tranquility of eternal peace. Peace and Ecstasy cease to be different and become one."

She desires the ancient mornings
and fulfills their light;
projecting forward her illumination
she enters into communion with the
rest that are to come.
