The will of God is harmony and integration
So let’s take a moment and regroup on what we’ve explored thus far before moving forward.
We started out with a mindset just post 10,000 B.C.E. where the hero-king was valued only as a consort and protector to the creative female. Often being sacrificed and eaten after the hunt. The Great Goddess was worshiped and all things of Nature were sacred and in full swing. (reference IAD4)
Then from 6664 to 4498 B.C.E. we shifted slightly in our view of the Goddess. During this time the Great Goddess was still primary but she developed a three-fold nature and was depicted as the maiden, mother and crone. The three-fold nature of all creation (along with possibly the first trinity) was awakened in consciousness. (reference IAD5)
166 B.C.E., as we began to leave another great Era, Goddess worship had waned and the worship of the Sun had reached its zenith in Egypt, the entire Western world was ruled by the iron-clad laws of Rome which possessed the greatest military power the world had ever seen to that date.
During this time as well… the mind began to develop and the love for great philosophy and thinking for ourselves sprang forth. With the coming of the patriarchal dominance, the intellect was taking priority over the physical/emotional in many ways. (IAD6)
Eventually the pendulum fully swung. Matriarchal dominance was gone, and patriarchal dominance was in full operation.
Everything in the Universe moves in cycles and rhythms.
Finally in a fatal swoop the worship of the physical Sun ran its course and in a religious-political move in 325 C.E. Christianity and its supreme Sun God became “the Son of God.” Sole emissary to God and savior of all mankind. (IAD7)
Whatever power or personal responsibility we once had for our own awakening was largely gone and we became indoctrinated for the next two-thousand years in external saviors. This mindset pervaded every single arena from personal to business to political to economic to spiritual.
So here we are. The much heralded and acclaimed Age of Aquarius. We entered in approximately 2000 C.E. After a nearly two thousand year period of enforced spiritual slumber where direct spiritual experience, and personal spiritual exploration, were at best frowned upon; and at worst punishable by death; we come to a critical fulcrum once again.
Remember every grand shift and new era is heralded by extreme polarization and strife. (reference IAD6) Do you feel it?
The doomsayers want to state that it’s the “end of the world.” Really?
I’m curious… what are all those authors of the 2012 books and predictions of fear and destruction doing now? I’d be willing to bet that they’re saying something like “we changed our ways” and therefore we were mercifully saved. Uh… okay.
Let me assure you with absolute certainty… there is no end of the world. Ever. You’ll never see it. Relax and breathe easy. In fact, nothing ever truly ends (more on that to come).
We are on the edge of one of the five or six
major transformations of the human species
~ Ken Wilber
The end of an Era and the world as we know it? Yes. We’ve been here before. You and I will not see the next Era… so this is it baby. Make the most of it.
From Goddess worship; to God worship; to its derivation of Son of God worship as emissary; where do we go next? And what are the implications?
Well that’s the billion dollar question isn’t it?
Let’s look at the Archetypes embedded in our collective psyche for our answers. Simply put Goddess worship is Gaia, Nature, Archetypical feminine qualities of receptivity and compassion, and all things emotional and physical. At the extreme pole… more heart with less intellect.
God worship is activity, achievement, intellectualism, scholarly pursuits, and acquisition (i.e. taking over and ruling kingdoms metaphorically). At the extreme pole… more head and less heart.
Now some romantics might say we need to go back to the “old ways” or that we need more “feminine energy.” I strongly disagree. You may not like my opinion but those who are attempting to propagate all things “Goddess” attempt to go backwards in time. Not to mention that they’re most often using primarily masculine energy in a futile attempt to forward the polar opposite. How can that work? Something to ponder deeply.
Sorry ladies I love you dearly and respect you immensely. Sincerely I do. You have a unique and special part in the new paradigm… and I submit that when you truly understand it’ll be perfectly clear.
Likewise it should be self-evident that we don’t need more masculine energy. It’s the masculine energy of the last Era that has brought us to the precipice of where we currently are; and while there’s value (just like there is in feminine energy); and we had to get where we are to go further; in-and-of-itself it’s incomplete.
In today’s world technology and politics and money and power and war have become God. Or at minimum all used in the “name of God.” The masculine energy has run its course unbridled for nearly two-thousand years.
We cannot solve our problems with the same level of thinking
that created them.”
~ Albert Einstein
So where are we going? Only time will tell. But it seems fairly self-evident… at least to me.
Buddha once stated, “Enlightenment is meditation plus compassion.” It’s consistently evident that he was way ahead of his time.
Now if we break that statement down into the current vernacular we could say that “Being awake and truly alive is the result of both the head and the heart fully harmonize and integrated.”
I know that’s a mouthful but please make sure you grasp the implications.
The will of God is harmony and integration
I submit that this integrated being is what I’ll call the Child. We were part way there in Christianity… but we ended up worshipping the advertisement versus the product. Please read that again.
The truth of the mythology got lost in dogma and the search for external saviors. Jesus’ teachings were propagated by the patriarchal dominant mindset. We’re not here to worship old prophets… rather to become the prophet. Please ponder that long and hard.
Truth be told… every single great teacher told us this very thing. Read. Listen. Think.
Now follow this. The merging of the masculine energy and feminine energy in nature always creates a product. The Law of Correspondence tells us that what we observe in the Universe around us can be observed in the Universe within us.
Let’s call that child or product or result of this integration “The Fully Alive and Integrated Human Being.” Head and heart fully awake and alive. Resisting nothing… experiencing and utilizing everything.
Is it just me or is it very intriguing that in astrology Aquarius (our current age), is first and foremost an Air sign? Air meaning intellectual and thinking. But it’s also the “water bearer.” Water being emotion and heart.
If you’ve been following the series you’ll be hard pressed to say that there is no credence whatsoever to the position of the Cosmos and the position and mindset of mankind. All is interconnected.
Aquarius. Meditation plus compassion maybe? Merging, harmonizing, and integrating both Male and Female energy? Head and Heart? Total and complete coherence between these two most vital organisms in the body? Something to ponder; and the journey continues…
