Duality, the bottom line
my last newsletter from late July-early August, I discussed the Dark
and Light Masculine as well as the Dark and Light Feminine energies. I
urged you to become aware of their all-pervasive influence on your life
and the subsequent limitation and misery they inflict upon you and
But you see, the Dark Masculine and Feminine are
not the bottom line. They are both expressions of a deeper core that is
addressed only in mystic traditions of the East. This core belief or
construct of the Universe is called Duality. It is so pervasive and
integrated into everything, underlying everything, that it’s even
harder to see and identify than the Dark Masculine and Feminine!
I’m not a Buddhist or Taoist scholar. I’ve tried to read those
scriptures and texts, but I admit that my eyes glazed over. So I won’t
approach this from that Eastern perspective, but from my Western POV.
the beginning, Lazaris said, there was the Goddess. She created God to
be her equal and together they created all the worlds and Universes,
including ours. I can only imagine that they had Divine Sex, masculine
and feminine, Spirit and Soul energies intertwined in a dance of
passion and ecstasy as all us Souls emerged from that core of joy.
the Macrocosm is reflected in the Microcosm (“as above, so below”), we
humans bring together the masculine and feminine energies with
intention to create love and belonging in a sexual dance of Spirit and
Soul, in passion and ecstasy. To grow a new physical being, we combine
the male (sperm) and female (egg) forces to create a zygote cell that
captures Soul and Spirit. Then, within the cell, it divides into two.
This is a lower reflection of the Goddess splitting in two in order to
create Universes. From there, the cell, now more than one, begins the
process of multiplying and creating ultimately a fully formed
Continuing the idea of the microcosm within the
macrocosm, when I as an individual create something, I must mentally
bring together my inner masculine and feminine forces in order to dream
up my creation and then physically bring it forth. I see this as the
essential Duality. It is good, in the sense that all creation seems to
require two energies, two polarities that dance with each other to
bring forth a third energy. This is the idea behind the Trinity.
spiritual and esoteric perspectives worldwide, Duality is considered
the state of separation from the Divine. It is the illusion that we
humans took on in order to have the physical lifetime adventure. And
with that state of incompletion, of distance and distinction from
others, Duality provides a drive to create, to become more, and to
bring opposing forces together as One, returning to our Source. If we
didn’t have Duality, nothing in the lower worlds (physical, astral,
causal, and super-causal planes) would exist. And with everything in
the lower worlds being a temporary creation within space-time, we are
here on earth in this lifetime, a period of play, experimentation, and
This temporariness defines what is called
the Illusion. We have an illusion of permanence, and we can live as if
we are immortal, although we know in our hearts that our bodies
definitely aren’t. Our essential adventure then, is to come into this
temporarily created soup of potentials and opportunities to explore and
create for ourselves, to know who we are and want to be, and to learn
how to express our Divinity in our own creations. That’s our Personal
Because these creations we make or choose are
temporary, our physical bodies must die. I say “bodies” because we get
to explore as many perspectives, realities, and adventures we want,
through reincarnation. Now, most people think of reincarnation as
linear. It isn’t. We are in the Now, the eternal point of time that is
Now. All of our lifetimes exist simultaneously with us right now in
this moment; every one of them.
We happen to be conscious of
our focus in this current space/time as we explore our individuality.
And here, we feel the separation from the Oneness, the Divine Source,
and the Divine Love of Home. This Now moment, this point of attention
you have, is your Point of Power, your power to choose your reality.
are in what I call a “Home-Going Lifetime.” You have explored many
lifetimes, played in the illusion as much as you desired, and
discovered your Homeward Spiritual Path. Now you are getting ready or
are already ready to return to the Oneness, to Home, to the place
beyond the Illusion and beyond the Duality, to merge with God and
Goddess in Divine Love.
When you finish this lifetime, you’ll go
in great celebration. Yes, there may be relief at being free of the
physical body with all its limitation, but the MAIN feeling with be
joy, that same essence of the Source from which you emerged originally.
And when you die, ready to go Home, you have the choice to make this
your last lifetime. You also can choose to do more lifetimes. This is
part of being in a Free Will Universe.
If you choose to
continue onward and upward then, at your last breath, you will combine
with all your other lifetimes and wrap up your personal Universe of
illusion. You will go beyond the four planes of Illusion and merge with
your Higher Self – the one who initially created so many many lifetimes
to experience. This Higher Self is also sometimes called the OverSoul,
and is the one who is fully and completely realized, connected to the
Divine, no longer separated.
In the mystic tradition of the
Masters of the East, you are as bright as the light of nine suns at
this stage of Self-Realization, and you sit upon your Throne of Self,
majestic, magnificent, and fully fulfilled as the Spark of
Consciousness, the individual Soul that you are.
Now this is
part of the mystic teachings of my Path. I share this because you are
heading towards the One, towards Home, at all times. Yes, you may
wander about before you get onto a beeline Home. But that enables you
to do a heck of a lot of creating first! Some of your creations won’t
work and you will need to recreate them, redream them, or even abandon
Right now, you and the whole physical world are dreaming
a New World, a new future. You might have already left for Home by now,
but you wanted to contribute your presence to this Great Shift, and
participate in or witness this change, or both. You wanted to explore
your Global Mission, the last piece of Divine Play for you to do before
Now when you leave for Home, you’ll realize that
you are IT. All of this Universe is designed for your play, your Leela,
your discovery of yourself. In other words, even your Universe will
also end. You’ll realize that there is no objective reality. That your
physical plane reality was all illusion, all other people populating
your world were illusion, and the only thing that was real was Love.
You will have finished your adventure, creating on greater and greater
levels, knowing and realizing your divine self. If you choose to, you
will then create Duality within you just like the Goddess did, and use
it to create new worlds and universes yourself.
Earth Based Duality
your everyday life, you encounter everything and it all is based in
that essential Duality. In life, opposing forces must be harnessed and
work together to bring forth new life, new concepts, and new
experiences. Here, Duality is often seen as two opposite and competing
forces that create and manifest things. Personally, I don’t really
believe that these forces are competing, and they aren’t always in
opposition either. Yet the expression of this concept that limits us is
indeed the “opposing and competing extremes” idea. This messes up us
humans in our politics and in all our relationships!
duality, you are separate from the other with whom you have a
relationship. We have a relationship with our world as other, with
nature as other, with our pet animals as other. The sense of
distinction and separation we have can make us feel isolated, lonely,
and not belonging. And competition or “survival of the fittest” beliefs
pressure all of us to compete for our “place in the sun” during our
lifetime here on earth.
In our current neo-liberalism
political entrenchment, individuality and entrepreneurian activities by
necessity require competition for limited resources. The major banks
see to that. And this competition never ends. One never is totally
secure, safe, and free. Survival and security is something that must be
re-established over and over by our diligence, work, and effort.
these opposing forces that our world believes so strongly in are meant
to be complementary, as far as I can tell. And I also suspect that the
Divine actually intends for us to find balance and harmony together
with others, like a coin that is one but has two sides.
is also the intention of mystics, seeking to find that unity by merging
with the Divine. While experiencing the Divine Oneness, the individual
still exists as an individual. This is essentially the theme of the
Aquarian Age, where we are now. This is a place of peace “that passeth
all understanding” and harmony that transcends all differences. This is
a place where everyone belongs, regardless of gender, race, faith, age,
and financial status. And this is what we are all here to experience,
and hopefully will in THIS lifetime!
From Piscean to Aquarian Age
Piscean Age, now passed, had its theme of unity with the Divine through
submission of will to the Guru, coupled with devotion and strict
obedience to the rules of behavior. I walked the mystic Path with a
Guru, but I had difficulty harmonizing my individuality with the total
devotion and obedience requirement, even though it was to be made in
That was my limitation, I guess. I imagine it
reflected my troubled relationship with my very dominating mother. I
saw love as control and I didn’t want to serve that kind of love. Even
though I realize now that it was my interpretation and not my Master
Teacher’s, I still have difficulty coming to terms with the concept of
submission and service, which seem like the core of the tradition
women’s training for eons.
For decades I could not serve anyone
else without experiencing personal depletion and exhaustion. You can
imagine my despair at being so “un-spiritual.” I judged myself to be
totally selfish and ego-ridden, and decided that I must push through my
chronic fatigue anyway to do servile things for others. Fortunately, I
have recovered from this point of view, but this required me to learn
Aquarian Age principles and find my vitality and energy to serve
through my individuality and passion, and through my own kind of
The point I’m making here is that those of
us on our Spiritual Path here in the West are seeking our highest
expression of individuality while at the same time no longer seeing
God, Goddess, All That Is as the other, but merging together with the
Divine as One. Our destination, our Destiny, is Oneness, i.e. ending
the Duality and the Illusion, transcending into the place where all
options, all aspects, all possibilities, belong within the One. This is
the destination of all religions and spiritual systems, especially
their mystic sides.
Political Resonance Shakedowns
our current extremist politics are part of the “Resonance Shakedown”
from the Piscean Age. You see, when you grow to a new level of Self,
you can’t take along the negative crap that you had before. It has to
be brought to the surface and released. This happens with every type of
growth we have, and of course, none of us like having this resonance
In politics, we are seeing the rise of
dictators and oligarchs suppressing the people, and have seen in
history the tendency of psychopaths to rise to the top in governments,
corporations, and any cultural institution. They do this through
establishing a police state, or tough method of control, and through
money manipulation that buys or attracts followers, and by securing
obedience or agreement of representatives through money so that votes
only continue the expansion of the 1% and the financial depletion of
the 99% beneath them.
This is oh so Piscean! You have the
strong one at the top and all the peons beneath! For many centuries,
the lords, kings, and rulers at the top were considered to have that
right over everyone else’s life or death due to Divine Right. The
current version has the working class people (the peons) who have to
take more than one job to survive while the oligarchs and rulers live
as if their excellence and marketing skills gave them a God-given right
to manipulate, dominate, and control.
On a personal level,
this Piscean age strong-man at top system was preserved through the
Patriarchy. Men at top, women at the bottom. The hierarchy of men
continues with the wealthiest white men at the top and the poorest dark
skinned men at the bottom. Women don’t belong to this hierarchy. They
are beneath the lowest man.
Of course, women have demanded more
personal autonomy and value, and there are many women today who are on
a hierarchical level equivalent or above men. This is hard for men to
deal with, especially the ones raised to believe that men can do no
wrong, don’t have to be responsible, and don’t have to be accountable
to others, their community, or the world (such as the environment,
national health care, lifestyle quality for all, etc.) These men are
fighting back, fighting for their privilege, diminishing the feminine,
nature, and being willing to destroy the earth to make a profit.
Piscean-style feudal system has ended, but its vibratory energies are
being resurrected now so we can identify it as what we do NOT want and
release it as a pattern of human social organization. We suffer a
hegemony, where the selfish politics of the upper classes are
considered the correct politics for everyone, especially the lower
classes. When I was a child, my mother used to tell me “What’s good for
General Motors is good for the country.” This was not true then and it
is even further from the truth now.
We have been sold a bill
of goods in which the lower classes are shooting themselves in the
proverbial foot by believing that wealthy, dominating people actually
have their best interest at heart. Or that by supporting those at the
top, the “trickle-down” money will give them opportunities to succeed
and become wealthy themselves. Unfortunately, statistics show that this
“trickle-down” system doesn’t trickle down. There’s no trickle. It’s a
lie. And hegemony keeps the lie alive as truth.
As part of the
release of this feudal idea, we are seeing our leaders personify the
Dark Masculine. And we see the personification of the Dark Feminine in
those who suffer in pain on the bottom of society through drug use (the
opioid crisis), victimization, and internalized pain leading to cancer
and other diseases.
See all of this as the breakdown of the
Patriarchy, through recognizing, identifying, and SEEING who is doing
what and why, and refusing to be a peon any longer. Refuse to be a
victim of the oligarchs, of the money system while at the same time
understand where they are coming from. See the othering that is being
done and within yourself, in your mind, undo the othering. See you and
the oligarchs as equals. Dissolve what you can of the Piscean duality
all of this turbulence and turmoil is difficult for us sensitive,
spiritual people to endure, remember; this will make room for the New
World, where human culture will become more cooperative and harmonious
– i.e. the non-competitive and more useful and healthy form of Duality.
This destruction is triggering new ideas and creativity within us about
what we yearn for in the world; belonging in a healthy democracy and a
healthy community. We are beginning to dream/imagine how everyone can
have a place at the table, making choices through consensus that
benefit them and everyone.
Yes, duality, while fraught with
negative connotations, can actually be healthy. It underlies all
reality in 3D. You can’t live here without it, even as you can
personally transcend it in your inner, spiritual life. Like the ego, it
has a positive purpose for us, but has been twisted and distorted by
the Dark Masculine and Feminine placed on top of it that we have become
enslaved by its limitations.
The Beauty and Power of Relationships
let’s use the positive side of Duality, shall we? Through Duality, we
can have loving relationships, seeing the Divine in all beings. This
increases increase our ability to know ourselves and to learn how to
love. You see, we can engage with our world and get messages and
information from our world that reflect what we think, feel, believe,
know, and who we see ourselves as being. The most common example of
this is the principle of “self-validating prophecy,” in which whatever
we believe happens and thus validates our belief that it will happen
and that it is just the way things are.
If you are able to
take these messages given to you through your relationships (and that
can also include a relationship with oneself) and consider them helpful
information, you can use them for growth. They show you what you want
to change as well as what you do well on your path, thus correct to
And as you grow and learn who you are, you accept
yourself, and you discover more and more of your innate, given capacity
to love. From selfish love, to humanitarian love, to the love of the
Divine, you will come to define yourself as a being who loves, and your
estimation of yourself or of another will be based on your or their
capacity to love fully, richly, and deeply.
When you can accept
yourself and generate a relationship with your Universe that is good,
you will create internal harmony and unity within yourself. You will
not allow the Negative Ego to convince you that your Reality has it out
for you, and that you should fear others. You will not take anything
personally and feel put-upon by the world, because it’s all your
creation, your playground. When you learn and understand what the
Universe is showing you, you can be powerful and simultaneously be in
harmony within and without.
It is in a loving and accepting,
receiving and learning interchange with your Reality that you can
dismantle the separation, the isolation, and also the extremism in your
personal life and in politics. By acknowledging and utilizing duality
effectively in your life, you can then think and dream outside the
duality box. You are already beginning to do this.
this positive growth path, connect with your spiritual Team (guides)
and allow them to support you. When you live in your love and light,
you will reduce the stressful suffering so prevalent in the world
during this magnified chaos right now. I am grateful to Conni Mainne
for pointing out the huge dark ramifications of the duality concept and
encouraging me to write it out for everyone.
most negative form of Duality is extreme polarization. This comes from
your Man Code and Good Girl Trainings, your religious teachings, and
from social media and the politics of the outer world. You are trained
to think in terms of good or bad (or in the Church good or evil), black
or white, positive or negative, man or woman, right or wrong, right
wing or left wing, friend or enemy, and above or below.
you’re a child or teen, this simplicity at first makes it easy to make
decisions. Just pick the good choice and leave the bad choice behind.
And avoid negativity by denying it while you do what the world says is
positive. But this simplicity does not last, since reality isn’t black
or white. And what you don’t know, you could fear, because you don’t
yet know how to vet a situation or know how to respond to it. And other
people can be strange and threatening too.
But as you grow up,
you recognize that there’s a whole lot of gray area between those
extremes! I prefer to consider it colorful diversity! Sometimes you
have to choose between a bad choice and an even worse choice. Or a good
choice and an even better choice! And sometimes your perspective
changes, and then what is right and what is wrong seem to change
positions. Or a man who is born male but is trans is now a woman or a
woman who is trans is a man. So what is there that is solid and firm
and always true?
There is no either-or, black or white, good
or bad. It’s all interpretation by some authority figure. If you follow
authority you will value some people and devalue others. But you are
limited in what you can learn and how much you can grow as a person,
because your authorities will hold judgments, and judgments limit you.
You will have cognitive dissonance (the experience of having conflict
in believing what you think of as true) with what you are supposed to
Cognitive Dissonance is unsettling and you will yearn
for certainly and finality. You want your reality to be either this or
that, so you can choose what’s real and true and feel safe, secure, and
right. You want the problem solved.
But unless you educate
yourself in various points of view, you will be vulnerable to scam
artists convincing you that their version of reality is the only good
one or important one to follow. And if you live in a community that is
very one-sided in their perspectives (like a lot of places are), or you
follow online communities and ignore others, you won’t even know about
alternative ways of thinking, believing, or being. You will be warned
to stay away from anything strange or different. Fear of the Unknown
will keep you ignorant and trapped!
Of course, you as a light
being, don’t want to be trapped in limitation and the illusions of
others. You don’t want to live in a world in which everyone is either
your friend or your enemy, and you don’t yet know which is which. You
don’t want to live in a world that is constantly unsafe and unstable.
first way to break down othering and find unity and harmony is to
evaluate your beliefs. Are you absolutely sure that your beliefs are
true and that others’ beliefs are false? Belief is something that all
humans have, and we have to learn what beliefs are simply what we’ve
picked up from others, or beliefs that others have persuaded us to
have, and what beliefs are those that really are true for us.
many people aver that what they believe is the truth and the only
truth. This is a common foundation of the Dark Masculine and Feminine
energies. History has shown that if one group of people (tribe A)
firmly believes something is true and right, a social or religious
mythology that determines how one lives one’s life, and another group
(tribe B) believes it’s false and not right, both groups will likely
see the other tribe as “Other,” i.e. strange, threatening, crazy, bad,
evil, less than, or even inhuman.
Studies found in prison
populations amongst gangs have shown that the more one group “others”
another group, the more capable that group is of dehumanizing the
others, and then believing themselves justified in committing violence
against them. Wars are based on this concept. Nazi Germany had a
narrative of the ideal Aryan warrior hero and so Hitler and his minions
chose to then selectively eliminate those who did not belong to the
this model, and encourage women to have blond Aryan babies.
as in wars, there are mythological heroes who fight for the light
against the forces of darkness. Those following them cheer them on as
they take down, destroy, and demolish (use those words headlines use
when sports teams win) the Other; nation, religion, race, gender (and
gender-fluid), sports team, or even political leaders within your
city/state or province/country. So who have you been aligned against?
Who do you other?
As you might suspect, in the long term, this
orientation never works. Whoever has made it to the top remains easily
threatened by those he defeated who are probably making plans to take
him down and destroy him. And there is always a greater heroic sense of
daring do when you are an underdog and your group will rebel and take
over the Dark Lord (
In politics, you find the same thing. The
right wing has all the answers, it says, to peace and prosperity, while
the left wing says “no, WE have the answers to peace and prosperity.”
What’s remarkable, and what George Monbiot pointed out in his fabulous
book “Out of the Wreckage,” was that both sides have a common narrative
structure, a story line. And it’s the story line that moves the people,
even if the story is against their well-being.
The Story Line
story line is like the plot of a hero’s tale, used to make millions at
the box office. You’ll recognize it, I’m sure. It’s a story of light
vanquishing dark, and it’s very polarizing, although those who follow
one version or another do not believe so, as they believe their
mythology is right and the other wrong. I’ve found in all the years in
which I’ve counselled people, especially in relationship disputes, that
the common denominator of virtually every single argument a couple has
is over who is right and who is wrong!
When you believe totally
that your story is the only truth (and I emphasize “only” here), you
have likely picked up your belief from your family and community as a
child, or perhaps from someone you admired and followed. It’s unlikely
that you have truly thought through what your belief/story/narrative
means and what the impact of it is on your life.
automatically believed personal narratives explain your continued
limitations, blockages, and sabotaging experiences, and puts the blame
for them on members of your family, other people you know, or groups.
Then how does the belief/story impact the way you interact with and see
The Dark Masculine thrives on selling people
narratives that contain some truth and some propaganda in order to
create polarization. And the primary sales job for propaganda is to
convince you that it is true, while giving you the verbal weaponry to
attack the Others.
One more thing about belief. People are
attracted to beliefs and to groups that hold beliefs that offer a sense
of certainty, a sense of stability and rightness. If there is a
community or group holding a certain belief, it is very comforting to
belong there and not have to deal directly with the chaos that’s all
around you. After all, if you have certainty, then you think you will
feel peace. This isn’t true, however. And once you’ve thrown your lot
in with a certain crowd holding a “certain” view of reality, you’ll
need to defend that view for a few reasons.
First, you don’t
want to look as if you’ve been fooled into that point of view, and two,
you’ve invested your time and energy into maintaining this belief and
outlook. If you drop it now, you’ll look foolish or stupid and the
group will shame and reject you. This is your Negative Ego
manipulation, maintaining the sense of separation and isolation you
could feel if you were shamed or ridiculed.
And then also, you
don’t want to wander once again in the chaos trying to make sense out
of things all by yourself without any backup or belonging, nor do you
know where to go to get the “truth” or whatever you need that will
grant you security.
Nevertheless, a lot of people join a belief
system and group story just for belonging. And they will
enthusiastically endorse whatever their leaders say, even if they
hesitate to fully believe in it. A great danger in this polarization is
that you affix labels to yourself to identify which side you are on.
You may never even admit these labels, and even insist that you refuse
labels, but you are totally willing to identify their polar opposite as
the enemy, the one who is “wrong.” All this keeps you limited in your
identity because you do not see that labelling others is actually
labelling and limiting yourself.
If you are unable to have
compassion enough to look through another’s eyes and to understand
their point of view (POV), you will fail to see any alternatives to
what you are experiencing that could offer you more freedom and
happiness. Remember; a highly expanded perspective in which you are
unpolarized and have love and compassion for “both sides” will enable
you to claim your Greater Self, the key to your Dream Future track!
De-polarize Yourself; Beyond the Paradox
answer to this belief and story limitation is to de-polarize yourself,
to reduce or let go of the extremism in your life. The less you are
engaged in duality extremes, the more you can lift beyond the paradox.
We are all living in a world filled with paradox, a world in which
extreme opposites exist at the same time. Where is the way to peace?
have been trained to take one side or the other, but then we are stuck
with the dilemma of how to deal with the inner conflict of living
amongst such opposition as represented by others with differing POVs.
How do such opposites co-exist? How do you resolve the extremes and
bring them together to get unity?
Buddha recommended taking the
Middle Path. By that, he meant the path of centeredness and inner
integration, not a path of centrist compromise. He meant being able to
see a level above the extremes, which lifts one into an expanded
perspective where both extremes can belong in the whole panoply of life
without one being right and the other wrong. In other words, lifting
beyond the paradox (thesis-antithesis-synthesis) brings you into
wholeness and the capacity to see all points of view with awareness and
When you see the whole, you have within you a center
of soul and spirit, a grounding into your unique essence. You are
walking your Spiritual Path. It is here, in this center, this middle,
that you can hold the peace, the greater perspective, and the
resolution of the paradox. When you are in center, you can then take
Right Action, but not before.
I was initiated into a mystical
meditation technique by an Indian Guru back in the ‘70’s. It was a
powerful centering, watching, and being technique, using a mantra, or
repetitive sequence of words that held spiritual meaning. Using this
type of meditation, I recovered from a severe emotional breakdown and
found my center. There I found peace, a deep peace and joy.
I was young, and not yet used to dealing with the world of finance,
logistics surrounding renting, car payments, finding employment, trying
to sustain a relationship with my man, managing possessions, budgeting
for food and laundry, and the like. All of this stressed me out, since
it was new and since I had been what you call a highly sensitive and
The meditation worked well. I was able to
get into a state of calm. However, as soon as I put my attention on
these worldly external issues, all my stress would return. This led me
into being a recluse. Eventually, I realized that I wasn’t learning
what I needed to learn in the world, and began the process of learning
how to stay grounded and present and aware in all sorts of
circumstances. This required me to step beyond the paradox of
spirituality vs the world, and embrace both.
Most people view
mystic spirituality as an escape from the world or a denying of the
world, and I certainly fell into that category for sure. But I did
learn something very important during that time. Mystics get along with
each other. Religionists generally don’t. The Christian Church
persecuted mystics, and the Muslim Churches did (and are continuing to
do) too. But when you would get Muslim mystics and Christian
mystics together, those who had explored realities beyond the day to
day right or wrongs, and beyond the belief systems of the churches,
they accepted each other completely!
The point is, when you rise
above the paradox or the extremes, you find a reality in which all the
extremes belong. They are then just one perspective or another, not the
final say on the Universe, economics, politics, or whatever. And all
perspectives belong in this world, just as all people do.
Duality and Illusion Awareness
a quick way to de-polarize yourself is to look at who you think is your
enemy, or at least who holds the opposite viewpoint from you. Who do
you judge? Who do you look down upon? Seek within yourself and be
ruthlessly honest. Some of you, like me, will judge and criticize in
your mind, and then call yourself on it, and adjust your thinking so
that you are more gracious to those others, perhaps even feeling pity
for them, or trying your best to be a compassionate person.
you even found a nice rationale story to explain why you don’t belong
with that group or person, and to even see your separation from them as
good and right. Even so, recognize that you’ve done your compensation
routine. Seek to see what your original judgments would be now,
underlying your rationalized enlightened state.
We humans have
been trained from the get go to look at everything from polarized
points of view. Where have you fallen for the mythology of right and
wrong and see yourself as right and those other poor fools as wrong? Or
see yourself as having the last word and other people lost and
confused? Where have you in your past felt shame about yourself,
feeling that you were somehow wrong, a mistake, and put yourself on the
dark side of the polarity?
Identify where you’ve bought into
extremes and where you’ve identified yourself at one extreme or
another. What groups do you dislike, devalue, judge? What groups are
distasteful, mean to others, expressing the Dark Masculine? What
negativity, dislike, judgments, and hate have you fallen prey to?
there are some individuals you judge. If so, in what grouping are they?
Let’s say you don’t like President Trump. What group is he part of that
you don’t like? The Republicans? Excessively rich and selfish moguls?
Anything of the Dark Masculine or another category of people he belongs
to? If you’re a right-winger, then maybe you can do the same with
Hillary Clinton, Obama or the Progressives. The point here is to
identify groups or a larger category than an individual person. Maybe
make a list.
Once you have your target groups, pause. Think
about who you are as a spiritual being, a metaphysician, perhaps even a
mystic. Think about your missions, both personal and global. What is it
that you would like to contribute to the world if you had ample
resources at your disposal? See yourself as your Greater Self, a
powerful reality creator returning on your Spiritual Path to God,
Goddess, All That Is.
Now, take one group at a time. Use your
imagination, and see yourself reflected in each one. Imagine looking
through the eyes of this group’s members and see how they think they
are right, good, true, and valued. See how they identify with their
community within the group and how that supports their lives, and
perhaps even their own personal or global missions as they see them.
them love and compassion, especially if they are doing very unspiritual
things as part of the group. Many people numb out their moral sense and
blindly follow a leader. Don’t pity them. Feel what they feel, what it
is they need emotionally that explains why they are following their
story line, and what they are doing or agreeing with that is
This takes imagination and stretching yourself. But
if you do this, you humanize them. Even if they’re acting like scum,
they become people who are beloved to other people, just acting badly.
Maybe they aren’t acting badly, just appearing to act superior. If you
remember, from personal experience, this is an insecure ego. You’ve
been there yourself. So feel your common humanity, and send them love
and compassion, wishing the best for them each personally in their
You are not validating their point of view when you do
this, nor are you giving them “permission” to act badly to others. You
are not choosing their path and you reject their path in YOUR life, not
in theirs. They are on the path Home too, and their path is perfect and
valid for them as yours is for you.
I had an argument with a
friend turned extreme right-winger, and he got into right and wrong,
blame and ranting. I tried to reason with him, and then got how I was
coming off just as superior as he was, just from my profesoor
He judged me, diminished me, and even threatened
and intimidated me to try and shut me up. When it was over, I thought
about it a lot and forgave him. But later, he showed up in my
meditations for healing the world, radiant in light. That’s when I saw
that all this venom and extremism was HIS path and it was taking him
Home in his unique way. He was being protected by his Divine Team as
much as I was by mine.
So remember, when you see others doing
horrible things you think are unspiritual and crazy, love them. But do
hold the intention that you are not supporting their bad behavior but
acknowledging their spiritual dimension, whether they can acknowledge
it or not. This is not about being lenient and allowing what they do to
go unrecognized or objected to. And do not think about the punishments
they should have, or the jail time they should have to endure. Instead,
see them simply as people, souls and spirits, precious conscious light
beings that may not recognize their own light.
(I mean, when
did YOU finally acknowledge your light and love capacity? Most people
are never encouraged to discover themselves and few “find” their true
selves within a limited or controlling system that determines their ego
facades and identities.)
Now put down the list and have a state
break. Go drink some water, go outside for a few moments and look at
clouds or a tree, pick up a good book and read a page or two, or do
whatever enables you to be in your center and feel pleasant about
things. After a few minutes of this, then revisit the group you just
experienced, and let your love and compassion flow to them again until
you can forgive them for the stress and conflict they have brought to
your psyche. You are not a victim. You are powerful, radiant, and
On another day, do another group until you’ve gone
through the list. Now let’s look at more detail in putting together
something that can work for you and the future – more of what you are
here on earth to imagine.
Re-Dreaming Human Unity
easy to stay in an extreme position, since you have a lot of others
there with you, and you get reinforcement and belonging from your
group. But if you look at this for a while, you’ll realize that you
don’t have certainty, no matter how enthusiastically your leaders
preach that you know the truth. You know the correct, right perspective
on things, whether it’s religious or political.
however, is extremely limiting and eventually you will have to break
out of it. So why not do it now? Undo the state of common polarization
you’ve been taught, and which you assume makes everything clearer if
only you could see the best and only choice. and move your awareness
beyond duality, that fundamental state of the 3D Illusion we’re in.
first, as part of our dreaming, we must find unity and wholeness within
ourselves. First, we remove the old exploitive Piscean Dream from
ourselves. What are the pieces of that old way that interfere with
human unity and harmony? Is it the neo-liberal idea of extreme
individuality and achievement? Is it about the obsession with money as
value on the hierarchy of wealth and power? Is it about competing and
fighting? Is it about throwing out or even killing those who are the
“problem?” It is about comparing yourself with others to determine
whether you are better or worse than they? Where do you hold onto your
ego and fear vulnerability? Where do you not allow yourself to be
present and real?
Write down whatever you discover. Maybe you
can think about these questions and find more digging and reflecting.
Do this over at least a couple of days if not more. When you feel you
got how you contribute to the duality and extremism within your,
falling prey to Negative Ego, then choose to find another way.
a perspective of love and compassion, stretch your mind to think of
peace and harmony existing among all people. Sense how people are like
all those frequencies in your Energy Field, needing to work together in
order to create a greater overall Resonance for you. Imagine how it
would be if everyone was willing to put aside conflict, domination and
control, and look to express the Light Masculine and Feminine, as you
seek to do.
Then, rethink how your compassionate approach
could works with creating harmony and consensus between yourself and
others. Stretch. Imagine. Now think about what that feeling, attitude,
and orientation of compassion could do in all your personal and
professional relationships, as they move towards greater harmony and
From here, stretch your imagination further to join
your guides in a sacred meeting place on a higher realm, and then
imagine co-creating the New World with them, with your spiritual
family, and with physical friends and family. What would this the
unity/wholeness in the world trigger? Generate? What would humanity
wish to do? This is what we have come to dream!
Now Human Unity
and Oneness is beautiful. It is not communism or socialism, although
the social and cultural sense of order you dream may have some
socialistic elements in it. It’s not conservative, right-wing or
left-wing. If you’ve noticed, right-wing or left-wing governments
generally tend towards dictatorships with the people having little to
no voice. That’s Piscean Age remnants and it’s definitely not that.
my opinion, it’s probably closer to anarchy, an anarchy in which people
come together and discuss anything and everything and make decisions in
consensus on how to run things so that everyone has a place. It’s like
what Occupy in New York City was at its best and which the media never
into the Aquarian age requires interactive leadership, community
consensus, and a way for all people to participate and be valued. An
Aquarian Age community is not dominated by big money men, and neither
is their politics, which respects all people, poor or rich.
involves imagining what one desires in its fullness and richness of
detail. Dreaming starts out with fantasy, but then the fantasy becomes
multi-dimensional, as we access the 5th Dimension, the Imaginal Realm.
Even though the new future we are imagining may seem impossible, we are
still creating a new Resonance. The more we make our Dream real, i.e.
the more we detail out all the lovely frequencies surrounding harmony
and consensus, healing and loving, the stronger it will be in your life
as well as in the world’s.
Many times, I’ve dreamed something
for the future that I would want to have in my life, and within a year,
it has shown up! I’m sure, if you think about it, you have examples of
this too. This is you influencing the Collective Unconscious Mind by
your thoughts and feelings! Self-Awareness!
manifestation always occurs in alignment and congruence with the
available resonance. I’ve said this before, but it always bears
repeating, because unless we remember this all the time, we can easily
slide back into our childhood supply of beliefs handed down to us by
our parents, teachers, and religious leaders, or to beliefs accrued
along the way when we were teens or 20 somethings.
Once a new
possibility is dreamed, then one can act upon that imagination.
Someone, not necessarily you, will receive your dream in the pipeline
and act upon it, even if you don’t. Most of us dream the same-old,
same-old reality in which we achieve financial success and then
everyone loves us. The ideas for this come from marketing gurus, books
on manifestation, and what others around us think and believe. In
truth, you don’t want those old dreams, the same-old same-old just
tweaked a bit. And you don’t want your family, your children, and your
community to continue them either.
So I’m asking you to join me
in imagining and dreaming freely of new possibilities and potentials,
way beyond the problems occurring on the planet now. This will keep you
from limiting yourself to what the past would deem possible. And
together, we can create a new template for us and all of humanity!
