World and nature
Polarity and dualism are what the world and mind- as opposed to the natural reality of being – comprises. World is created by and mirrors mind (as opposed to nature). Polarity is endlessly expressing in this unfolding dream which is real and unreal. Full embrace of this polarity (which is always impossible in separation) is the only answer to suffering, mind chatter, and conflict, inner between intelligence and shadow, or outer which must reflect that inner. The incapacity to surrender to Being, to God, to life’s intelligence and unconditionality, to what is at the deepest, creates the build up of tension.
The dangers of unconsciousness, unmet need and projection
Currently, in this ever-changing manifest creation, we live in very tense times, maybe more dangerous than they have ever been. In the human material plane a kind of hell has been created and only consciousness allows an individual to escape it. Boys who have not grown into fully realised men are putting everything natural at risk. And those boy politicians we have given our authority away to are innocent, blameless, because they are the inevitable expressions of current mass consciousness. They are a revelation, for all the world to see, of most human beings’ psychic conflict, the preference for aggression, brinksmanship and blame rather than the harm-less embracing of old wounds and capacity to feel the currents of life without reactivity, which deep transformational work brings. Our current planetary situation is a revelation that can bring deep healing and increased humanity, if the collective (represented by our political leaders) rises to the challenge to find a way, through conscious negotiation, to embrace and make safe so many conflicting priorities. But, as in the individual awakening journey, the problems, the unmet natural needs that create them and the projections and blame must be fully acknowledged and dissolved, for resolution to happen.
The end of separation is full embrace and dissolution of polarity
Many teachings are promoted on the basis of ‘this light can change the world’. Nothing is definitively known about that here. Human beings like to think that enlightenment can bring the end of all suffering on the planet. True transformation can only happen one man and one woman at a time and that demands painful separation from parental and societal conditioning and opinion, true self-honesty and the courage of vulnerability, and the strength to stay with pain and not reject it or defend against it. It is clear that the possibility of the end of polarity is a dream of a hope the mind creates to avoid feeling unresolved pain. The end of separation does not bring predictive abilities. It does bring infinite sensitivity, full blown no filter, full on….what is.
The end of separation means that the apparent plight of a man or woman in Seoul, Japan, California, or North Korea in the face of nuclear annihilation, or the people and animals in the U.S and Asia who are struggling to live while feeling the full impact of climate change, is what is, and it is horror. Awake to that, some intelligent assumptions might be made about right wise actions. They may be wrong. Everything is unknown.
The end of polarity on planet Earth would be in the appearance only created by the end of the world as it has ever been known in human consciousness. Annihilation. The end of everything. The end of the world is an unfathomable and unacceptable possibility to the mind. Yet the mind wrestles with and resists the very polarity it needs and continually creates!
An individual who wishes to live free and happy or a couple who wish to live a fulfilling and rich shared life must come to embrace polar opposites – the light and the shadow, conflict between man and woman, conflict between nations, the good and the bad, the happy and the sad.
Silence of the heart
The journey of coming to clear seeing beyond projection and trance, conditioned beliefs and their consequent feelings, is the only meaningful pursuit. The opening to silence beyond ego demands and blame, is the only peace.
The only way a separate individual can begin to ‘end the world’ and polarity in consciousness is by seeing through opinion, feelings and argument (duality) and making themselves available for grace, the source that is beyond polarity, the end of separation and the arising of natural beingness, for nobody. This is death, and the awakening ‘process’, where the conditioned self fights to sustain its projections, illusions and belief systems as if fighting for its life and will play any trick in the book to obliterate intelligence and love, is undoubtedly painful at times.
Simply being, living essence, living what is infinite, is the jewel of life.
Somehow, this embodied and full realisation of the mystery that is gives the courage and trust to live ‘your’ natural reality – to find your voice, free of blame or judgement, do the things that you long to do, be bold even when feeling fear, create truly fulfilling connection. ‘Wake up, wake up’ says the bird song. Life isn’t what you believe it to be. ‘You’ can’t make yourself wake up. But the architecture of the individual can fall away, can be dismantled chip by chip, with a clear mirror and a willing, kindness for self and others and courageous heart. The new ongoing group, Being, is a direct exploration of this possibility and potential, which life is shouting out every moment.
In this video, made while with a beautiful ongoing circle, I touch for you on the underlying context of Secret Garden. Being is ‘beyond the world’ and yet embodied realisation helps you come to terms with the current instabilities, the sufferings from extreme weather in the US and Asia, and the real dangers that the world grapples with. It is possibly confronting to receive this video’s message, given how much reassurance and defence a conditioned self needs to sustain its delusions. Remember that Secret Garden embraces, uniquely, the unvarnished reality and also, separately, compassionately embraces your being human, helps you learn about what is effective or ineffective. Applied deep intelligence and true education in structures and circles helps you to create the rich and nourishing life you choose and release what has created problems for you. So none of what is said in this video is suggesting at all that intelligent action, communication, tenderness, clear intelligent boundaries and every day healing of mis-perceptions, projections and defences are not important. They are if you live in a body!
Intolerance and the incapacity to embrace the polarity in unfolding nature leads to a loss of human tenderness. That can easily escalate and sabotage what you hold dear. Every human being has vulnerabilities. If tension rises, breathe let go of what you have made up, allow the heart’s silence – it can diffuse the defences. Do you live love, rather than fear?
Wishing our world leaders wisdom and all the support they need at this time, and ease and freedom of being to all beings. Amama. Let’s expect the best.
Circles are always unique and are highly experiential – they are about YOU, NOW, your freedom to live the fullness of being, ecologically and sustainably, in your chosen life.
Join us in a deep dive into the possibilities of being, of natural aliveness. An awakening to the mystery, infinite intelligence and potential of soul.
