The will of God is harmony and integration
So we’ve taken several weeks to get us to an awareness of where we currently are in our collective consciousness. We furthermore discussed that the next phase in our evolutionary journey is the full integration of both the mind and heart. Thought and feeling. Intellect and emotion. This is something I referred to as The Awakened Child as well as The Fully Alive and Integrated Human Being. (reference IAD8)
Nowhere is this integration more dormant than in the current stereotypical male dominated society… regardless as to whether it manifests in a physical male or female.
Several years ago I was interviewed on a men’s radio program and the interviewer asked, “What do you think is the primary problem for men today?” I quickly answered, “Feeling their feelings.”
You see, this is not only prominent in males by any means. Feelings are the engine of creation—energy in motion. Science and the Law of Vibration tell us that everything vibrates. When you suppress you’re feelings and don’t feel them fully you’re stuck in a futile attempt to bring a living, vibrating, energetic entity to a static death. This is not Life. Far from it. In fact, just the opposite.
That which is suppressed, will be expressed, in later days and uglier ways
When feelings are not felt fully and freely, not only does pathology arise… but it suppresses Life and the ability to really Live… as well as your ability to create. Please read that again. I could write on this for days and will most definitely come back to it in future installments.
The current personal and spiritual development market is one of the largest contributors to this most heinous of errors with their constant plastic “be positive” stance. Being truly positive is often being positively angry, fearful, uncertain and all the other natural human emotions and feeling them fully. Do you get that?
True positive thinking is not expecting the best, that’s illusion…
True positive thinking is accepting that what is happening is the best for your future development, advancement and growth.
Just as a reminder we’re exploring the first principle in Innate Ability Development™ which is Principle must precede practice.
So we arrive at the second principle to explore as a fundamental tenant of this new paradigm of Innate Ability Development. All the historical exploration we’ve done has brought us to this critical point and principle…
Principle Two: The only true power is a functional and integrated whole
If we condense the journey we’ve taken together thus far into two major categories… we’d have the Era of female dominance followed by the Era of male dominance. In both cases there was a suppression of the polar opposite. Never an integration… but rather a suppression. This is key. This suppression is fundamental to not only understand the past… but to predict where we must go moving forward.
I’ve long been a student and fan of Egyptian mythology and have spent many weeks and hours studying in this magical place that (whether we like it or not), is unequivocally the birthplace of all Western spiritual traditions. Christianity, Judaism, and Islam were all influenced heavily from the Egyptian tradition.
Mythology is a history book of the human consciousness and soul
Let’s use Egyptian mythology as our guide. As a populace we’ve experienced the age of Isis (female) and the age of Osiris (male). By the way, just as an interesting aside, Osiris rose from the dead and granted eternal life. Hmmm, interesting… where have we heard that before? (research the Osirian mysteries)
If you know anything at all about the Egyptian pantheon, you’ll recognize that there’s at least one major component still missing in this model of Isis and Osiris… the son Horace.
Horace was the virgin born son of Isis and Osiris; and interestingly enough he is depicted with the head of a hawk or falcon, and the body of a man. This metaphorically indicated the merging of the Higher Self (or what we traditionally would call God) with the lower self (or we could say humanity). Sun/Son of God? (reference IAD7)
This truth was actually illustrated in many other traditions as well, one of which was the Jewish tradition of the Old Testament. In Genesis 35 Jacob wrestled all night with an angel (his Higher Self a.k.a. The Holy Guardian Angel), and in the morning was finally given a new name. Jacob, post the grappling, became Israel… The Fully Awakened and Integrated Human Being. (reference IAD8). Stick with me.
The truth told we’re all in this same wrestling match. In fact, for many of us this pugilism will last an entire lifetime (possibly 3-4 lifetimes?). When we begin to understand the mythological implications of these stories (and stop reducing and fantasizing them into literal happenings), worlds of wisdom potentially open before us.
Now those who understand the mysteries realize that while Israel is a geographic place… it’s also a metaphorical state of being. To understand this we must understand and dissect the word Is—Ra—El
Is represents Isis. Isis was the feminine quality. Feelings, emotions, irrational ups and downs, temptress, compassion, desire, tenderness, love of nature, beauty and all things stereotypically female. In current psychology we would call her the unconscious mind or bodymind.
Ra was the Egyptian Sun God. There were many derivations of his name, but as a God, he represented all things masculine. Intellect, thought, strength, life force, action, transcendence, drive and energy. In current psychology we would call him the conscious mind.
El in Hebrew means “one.” So when you put them all together it literally translates in mystical form to “Israel: the feminine and masculine energy integrated as one.” Are you thinking?
This Horace/Israel/Aquarian Age is The Fully Awake and Integrated Human. This is your highest potential. Which in this unified form becomes a Higher Conscious Mind. Please read that again.
This integration in my assessment is the key to our future; and it’s the exact opposite of the lopsided and myopic approaches we’ve been utilizing up to this point in our evolution.
Please remember when we awaken, we see clearly… appreciating all paths for where they have brought us, yet setting aside childish beliefs and behaviors we step boldly forward. (reference IAD3)
If you don’t feel any fear then you’re not alive—not really living! So called “fearless living” is a crock and those who propagate it are the most fearful of all
The Fully Awake and Integrated Human is not afraid of allowing fear, sadness, anger and grief to exist. Please read that again and let it sink in.
He embraces these feelings, recognizing that all things have value and are only defined by the right time, place, duration and quantity.
He feels and feels deeply. He is bold in his action yet not foolhardy. Courageous enough to show his humanity; and to be fully human; and also be his fully unique self. He envy’s no one, for there is only one of him; and there can be no other. Embracing and utilizing the full spectrum of human feelings and emotions he feels completely and truly reborn!
No longer running. No hiding. No suppressing. He is open and raw and real. Just living big! Living loud! His life is meaningful and he is epic.
Even though the world may measure his contributions as small… he knows that he is his own measure. He has left the conditioning of the masses and lives in a world of his own choosing. He operates by a law that transcends, yet still understands and includes, what once was… for he now realizes that he’s a citizen of a higher order.
“Imitation is suicide. Envy is ignorance.”
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
Others may think him strange or odd or different—he is not swayed. He loves people yet is not tied nor deterred by their opinions of who they think he should be. He follows his own unique path. His primary focus is to live, love, learn, grow and contribute. He is saddened by those who sell out themselves and their unique abilities, purpose and contributions for a mere fist full of dollars, a nice car and job, and a number in a bank account. For he knows these all to be a completely false sense of security.
He knows that physical life is short and must be lived, leveraged, and experienced fully and completely. The legacy he builds is measured by the value and contribution that he makes… not by the size of his business or bank account.
He has no need for traditional security, for he realizes that the greatest and only true security comes from within. His foundation, like his security, is built upon the deep internal ability to provide value and service to the world.
He forgets a career and follows his calling. Therefore, all money is the by-product of his mission; and he does not allow the hypnotic hold that he views on others around him to lull him to sleep. Preferring to strike out and feel the surge of energy and enthusiasm that comes with the adventure of life and all its uncertainties versus “being comfortable.”
This awakened one realizes that the sole, and soul, objective of life is first and foremost to live—fully! And if that means embracing the pit of hell, the darkness of a cell, walking a path all alone, or the loss of everything he once held near and dear, so be it! He feels as deeply for himself as he does equally for others. His compassion and understanding are boundless.
When it’s time to be sad he is sad. When time to be happy he’s happy. But in each case there’s an overarching joy that coexists simultaneously. When it’s time to be afraid he’s fearful. When it’s time to be bold and courageous he’s bold and courageous. But in each case there’s an overarching faith and excitement for the journey of Life.
While it may appear from the outside that he possesses tremendous confidence and courage… on the inside he’s extremely humble and grateful. For he realizes that all which appears to be accomplished from him… is actually coming through him.
At his very best he is an open and available conduit for THAT which is far beyond any finite comprehension. For any result he experiences and gifted he feels completely and totally blessed.
The Awakened and Integrated One recognizes that the pure unadulterated Spirit that pulses through his veins is the Spirit of Life and The Universe Itself. This Spirit and Energy always has his back as well as holding his best interest. This Spirit of Life has one objective… fuller expansion, experience and expression; and he therefore aligns his life and all his activities and his faith accordingly.
There’s more… there’s always more…
Are you ready? Does it excite you? Does it scare the hell out of you? Good! That means you’re alive! And the journey continues…
Stay Awake, Love Life, and Be Epic
