The highest Magic is beyond technique. When the "rules" and "laws" are known and lived, as natural as breathing. This is where the fruit of mysticism, the non-dual realization is lifted from the mystical to the occult, to the Magical. To White Magic.
This does not fit well with spiritual "techniques" of any sort, on any level. It is not part of any spiritual "tool kit" There are no steps. and there are no words.
But let us try; together. It begins with a fierce Compassion. You have gone beyond the mystical eternal now to the Planetary Logos Time. Beyond the timeless into Time. And you sense a Plan, a Purpose.
The traditional non-dual realization that all conditions are merely apparent, and un-necessary, and inherently non-binding modifications of....... Essence Consciousness. Does not withstand the Brighter Light now. " So the darkness [beyond the light] shall be the light, and the stillness the dancing" [TS Eliot]
There is Purpose---beyond the non-dual realization. Not logical, not linear, not "dual" not "non-dual". There are no words and during the mystical initiations.....cannot be seen.
And you may think: I have not.........
There is Purpose here to participate in; in partnership with...... Taking your stand as a White Magician, standing "shoulder to shoulder" with fierce focus, indeed with positive boundaries.
There is insistent effortless Silence
There is fierce Compassion. There is the possibility of a new level of Magic, of White Magic beyond any techniques.
The levels of Samadhi spoken of in the eastern teachings often represents an inability of the brain to "hold" a realization. A kind of "melt down" into a perception of "Oneness". Due to the quality of the brain. Evolution ever flows onward in linear time creating greater Divine complexity and refinement. So we divide the ocean; and proceed in a way that when initiation/expansion of identity occurs one does not go into a trance or "melt down" into bliss or even ecstasy. Ecstasy is nurturing, and healing: it can also be a limitation, where one get's lost; and indeed addicted (literally biochemically).
Here one is able to hold that realizaton and step into greater Life. It's a bit like getting out of a warm comfortable bath and going out [drying off, putting on a down jacket :)] into a cold mountain midnight. Pristine, exquisitestarkness, [yes the two words can go together]. But the siren of ecstasy sings sweetly indeed. Can you immerse, heal, and still hear the call of the mountains, of exquisitestarkness? Or remain immersed in the warm bath of ecstasy.
Yesterdays realization is based on the limitation of the brain [primarily].
By a kind of "Self-challenging" with a powerful Will/Imagination one can initiate an alchemical process beginning a deep Metamorphosis that will bring profound changes. Biological: biochemical changes. Nervous system, endocrine system....... Metamorphosis. A new kind of human being; internally. Able to "hold" higher states of consciousness, and beyond. It is happening for some of you now, with little "effort".
And yesterdays "Timeless Truths" are seen as yesterdays timeless truths.
And you stand ready to embrace....the next "timeless" truth.
Is the Eastern model "broke"---no of course not, A synthesis, beginning with an integration, of the global hemispheres would be a good start; global quadrants better yet.
The sutratma thread is not anchored in the heart, nor the heart chakra, nor chidikasha [the heart space in the head]. Often "blinds" to protect; and bad translations. This has led to a lot of confusion, associating the heart center with the Life principle.... and indeed than what happens? A re-focus on the heart center [perhaps by "enlightened" folks: kundalini has risen to the crown chakra]; thus a re-focus on the heart because the sutratma...... but in fact Not.
However it's safe, and indeed a very refined love at that/this point---which continues down [coming from above, so descending] into the second chakra---again refined at this point. And...ecstasy. Various 'schools' of esoteric Tantra.
>>The coming in of the Aquarian age also stimulates in
man a spirit of universality and a tendency towards fusion.
This can be seen working out in the present trend towards
synthesis in business, in religion and in politics. It produces
an urge towards union, and among other unions, towards
religious understanding and tolerance. But these influences,
playing upon the sensitive bodies of the over-psychic, lead to a
morbid tendency towards unions, legitimate and illegitimate;
they produce an extreme aptitude to sexual intercourse in many
directions, and to relations and fusions which are not along the
intended or the evolutionary line, and which outrage oft the
very laws of nature itself. Energy is an impersonal thing,
and is dual in its effect—the effect varying according to the
type of substance upon which it plays<<
What may be "right" for one who avoided in other lives [they are all truly simultaneous] may well not be right for you...... Ecstasy is nurturing, and healing: it can also be a limitation, where one get's lost; and indeed addicted (literally biochemically) and addicts always invite others.... It's a bit like getting out of a warm comfortable bath and going out [drying off, putting on a down jacket :)] into a cold mountain midnight. Pristine, exquisitestarkness, [yes the two words can go together]. But the siren of ecstasy sings sweetly indeed. Can you immerse, heal, and still hear the call of the mountains, of exquisitestarkness? Or remain immersed in the warm bath of ecstasy.
For you a detour; for others perhaps a teaching, for you to step beyond. For some "you's" current, for some.....now you ain't gonna get caught in that misunderstanding or that addiction. The sutratma is anchored in the "spiritual heart" indeed. But the 'heart chakra' is a blind to protect. Read on....you'll piece it all together.
The sutratma thread is not anchored in the heart, nor the heart chakra, nor chidikasha [the heart space in the head]. Often "blinds" to protect.... Protect from what: delusion? Yes, one can certainly get lost, but more protecting from the raw power of the true seat--and indeed protecting the group from same. Thus the "source" of the information protecting as well perhaps as the writer/sharer/channel; consciously or un. ......and round and round she goes, around to the second chakra.
And at a certain point you know, and wonder why the heck so much misunderstanding.... and perhaps find your way here. And welcome indeed. Please continue on....
