The Way of Understanding
The Way of Wisdom, Humility and Love
The Wheel of Life-Consciousness-Spirit turns once more.
Time to move out of the Waters of the Deep,
The Space of Union that is Scorpio.
Time to draw back your bow of Intention, and take aim by the Clarity of Fire,
To look for Truth in the Wisdom Ways of Sagittarius.
You have felt the joy of Union; and you have felt the agony of Separation too.
It is time to step back, to widen your perspective and points of view…
It is time to drink from that Ancient Well of Wisdom, and add your precious drops too.
Now you wish for one thing only, now you yearn to “understand”. You need the essence, the elixir of meaning from those heartfelt “meetings and partings”. You smiled in the joys of finding common purpose, of sharing your life or your work with one another, and becoming even more who you are through joining with one another.
Or, you experienced the awful pain of being broken apart as you found your common grounds were not so common after all. What defined you and they now made clear, at least for now, that you were too different from one another; your paths may have crossed, only to separate once again.
What did you learn about yourself (and of them)? What are you supposed to make from those awesome heights of ecstasy and these painful depths of despair…exactly where do you go from here?
You need to harvest the meaning from these experiences, so you can understand the Quintessence of Truth behind them. You aspire to see how these gleanings of meaning may provide some insight about yourself and your destiny, and likewise offer a Providential pointing to the greater destiny of “I and Thou” and your larger world too. Whether you came together as one; or fell apart into separations (for a time), you need this now. You must understand what this means, the how’s and why’s of what happened in that mysterious and Alchemical space of union.
Know this, it was exactly in this frictional crucible of value and meaning, of Unions made and Unions lost, it is exactly through this that you will discern what is you and what is less you. This is “the way”, you find yourself in and through one another. That by going out to meet, understand and join with them you also discovered "you", that this is the way you come that much closer to your own true self too.
But now there is this urgent need to understand what happened, to extend yourself into a more encompassing framework of meaning. You wish to know how to be yourself, and for them to be themselves too, and so remain true to the path of light and love. Because you do need one another, we all need one another to become who we are meant to be. This is the Spiritual Dance of Life, the One and the many, and out of the many we return to the One.
So, you look for answers, you seek in the Halls of Wisdom and you look within your own mindful heart too. You look to the gifts of your Ancestors, from the Teachers, Sages and Seers who came this way before. They too struggled to understand, and their gifts remain a Light in the Darkness, and will help you to dispel the shadows of Ignorance and Evil in the world. By Philosophy, Religion, Science and Art, their Reasoning and Faith are the hard-won Quintessence of their spiritual struggles for the Greater Awareness, and their Lives, Love and Reason the most precious gift offered for one and all.
Yet the pathways of Truth are equally found within, because the same spiritual light behind all that is “out there”, is equally what makes you, you. Your own Wisdom Well, your Higher Self, will gently whisper integral affirmations, aligning what you inwardly intuit with what you outwardly know by experience, and so you take another step on the path of Truth too. You will offer yourself and your dewdrops of understanding, adding your experiences to the Well of Wisdom shared by one and all.
But because you are unique, each of you will come to the Greater Awareness upon different paths, so that even in your seeking for truth and understanding, you will come together but also at times pull apart over what is “the truth”. But through Reason and by Love, by combining and refining, through inner Inspirations and outward confirmations, you will come to know the most important Truth behind all the lesser truths you hold, that before me is another, just like me, and my only way forward is to love them as I love myself.
You started as One, one with one another, and you will through all your individuations, differentiations and resonations as a unique spark of the Divine, you will end as many but One again. In your journeys through Worlds, Forms and Lives you are will always be a special spark of the divine, and you will bring forth your individuality and differences that make you distinct. But this will also bring about your separations from one another too, at least for a time. But forever and always you must remember the fundamental Truth, that you are made by and for one another. You must strive to hold together “I and Thou”, to both honor the individuality in one another yet tenderly discover, nurture and abide in the Greater Awareness and Reality which is your Love for one another.
Your Journey is the story of Consciousness, of the self that is the Self-Becoming.
As you draw ever closer to Wisdom you will find that you will also become more humble too. For this is truth, the more you understand, truly understand, the more encompassing, nuanced and loving your truths will become. Your Wisdom will grow as your Humility grows too. There is an integral alignment between your Mind and Heart, and in this Journey of Self-Becoming, no matter how high or far you have come, you must ever “Walk On” to greater Wisdom, as you equally deepen your affections for one another.
You shall be inspired by the great ones lovingly show you “the way”. They did not come to tell you what you do, for you must walk your own path towards Understanding. But by their example, they showed you who you really are. By their Illumination held in the Greater Awareness, and by their lives filled with Grace and Humility, you see true Wisdom and feel what is holding together one and all, Unconditional Love.
Where is the answer, where is the Pearl of Great Price?
It is there in your heart, and found in all hearts too…
There you will find Peace in the Gift of Wisdom.
There you will find Grace in a Life of Humility.
There you will truly Live with Unconditional Love.
