Play of Mirrors Part 2 - Life is a Paradox

Existence is always based on a seeming paradox, that we are One and also appearing separate. Our analytical mental logical capacity is based on having knowledge of facts, which can only be done by isolating things from a certain point of view, to look at an object or a situation or a being as its own individual thing rather than a part of a whole. At the same time, existence, the whole of creation, is One, one organism, one body. We are cells in the One creation just like the cells and organs in a human body. Therefore logic in itself, if genuinely pursued all the way, always ends up in contradiction, the contradiction of Oneness and seeming separation. We can not come in touch with life by mentally understanding its parts. The seeking for a logical answer, for an analytical meaning and understanding of life, is always vain and can never be satisfied.

This is related to my previous post 'Play of Mirrors', in which I was mentioning that from the highest point of view, our Higher Self is One organism, one and the same for all beings and all creation, and symbolically it can be viewed like a Sun, and we as lower selves are all sunrays emanating from it. In truth, the Sun and its rays of Light are One. Another way to symbolically describe this is that the lower self is a reflection of the Higher Self seen in a mirror.

"Everywhere we look around in the physical, emotional and mental worlds, we see only reflections, as all other people, places, objects, also are only reflections of their own higher selves.
As mere reflections who have forgotten the real self, there has often been this feeling of being incomplete, that our identity is not validated, which is coming from losing sight of the real/higher self. And in this forgetfulness, there has been a widespread tendency to look for that sense of completion in the world of reflections. So people hope to be completed and validate their identity by looking for positive opinions of other people, by hoping that positive experiences and achievements will finally validate their identity, and finally the reflection will not be blur anymore. But this is 
absolutely vain, as completion can never come from the world of reflections, but only from reconnection with one's own higher, real self.
Seeking completion in the world of reflections is like placing two mirrors in front of each other, the reflections reflect each other endlessly. This world where the higher self has been forgotten is a maze of opposing mirrors where it is not possible to understand what is real.

Therefore, for real spiritual breaktroughs to occur, one must unconditionally renounce all hope for validation and completion in the opinions of other people, in one's own achievements, or in any other circumstance from this world of reflections in these lower planes"

The Higher Self, the field and embrace of Oneness, the Light of Source, the One organism which all of existence is, all of these are different words to describe the same thing, and this is who and what we really are. We are cells in this One organism, ripples in the Ocean of life. This presence is eternal and unconditional, it can never be affected, lowered, changed. It is beyond conditions. Therefore it is not something to seek out there, it is not something to achieve, to work towards in a future, it is always there and has always been there and we can never be truly disconnected from it because there is nothing outside of the One, it is only the individual awareness which may forget temporarily, which may then experience the illusion of being disconnected, while the One presence is always there, and truly all there is to do is to relax into it.

To relax into it means that we see this Highest Light as ourselves and as all others and as all situations, always, unconditionally, no matter what is happening in the conditions. To truly see it, automatically we will bring it into the situation, and we will experience it.

To create attachments and investments in scenarios, in expecting or believing that things should be a certain way, automatically hooks the energy in the conditions in the lower self, brings identification with the lower self, because it is an expectation that the lower appearance could complete us, and actually the One Presence that we truly are is always there, everywhere, in every moment, always complete.

And at the same time, the lower self often has accumulated a lot of programs, distortions, all of which are based on the illusion of feeling separate, dislocated. This creates an experience of various pains, especially physically and emotionally, which are always illusions no matter how real they may seem. An enlightened being could stand in an explosion unharmed, get shot by a firearm and just let the bullet go back out of the body unharmed, simply because he or she firmly knows that conditions are always illusions, a play of mirrors, and the One unconditional Presence is always here, always complete to provide unconditional health and wholeness.

At the same time, it can be a journey to regain this full awareness, this full enlightenment, and this has to be acknowledged too. In full enlightenment, there is absolutely no need of anything whatsoever, because our Higher Self presence is always complete and pure Oneness Light and Love, it can not be affected by any of the lower conditions, and in truth the Higher and lower self are One, so the lower self has the destiny to fully embody the Higher and all of its unconditional qualities, and therefore to not be affected by circumstances and always be pure Light.
When this full awareness has not been regained yet, the lower self has many needs, or in other words many addictions, it needs/is addicted to drinking water, breathing air, sunlight, eating food, having meaningful human connections, etc. And here is the paradox, that from a certain perspective and at certain stages of evolution we truly need all of this, and at the same time as the One unconditional presence we truly don't need them.

The journey is to resolve this paradox by addressing all needs and desires, and there is no generic straightforward answer for this. Either they have to be renounced or they have to be experienced and played out, until the lower self is in full awareness of its unconditional Presence of the One, and the Soul has completed its journey in incarnation and has no desire or reason to incarnate anymore. This is dependant on the Divine Plan of the One : certain desires are distorted, for example we don't really need junk food and this can usually be renounced easily. If we believe that we need something then we will experience that need. For example we have genes to make vitamin C, but they are usually turned off because we believe we need to eat it, but they can be turned back on by our awareness that we can make our own vitamin C.

However some desires are reflections of Divine Plan for unfolding of creation, and our Soul may not renounce them for some time but instead it will send the impulse to create that experience in the best way possible, for example the desire to experience Soul family reunion. Here it is important to remember that the Divine Plan is fluid, it changes, it is not something we can tune into with mental planning and beliefs, so we have to release attachments to a specific scenario. We can only tune into Divine Plan in the moment, by living and expressing each moment one by one fully, then the journey unfolds, life is able to build upon each previous moment only if it was lived fully which means that we see the One Presence of Highest Light in each moment, no matter what is happening. These desires, this inner guidance moment by moment, is the fabric that weaves all life into a field of Oneness.
As this journey unfolds, we progressively regain full awareness of our unconditional Presence of the One, and the paradox is reconciled, as Oneness is realized all the way into all degrees of density and separation, then all beings, all cells of the One organism, are fully embraced together in the awareness of Oneness, and life remains a mystery to be experienced, not as something to be attained because there is nothing outside of life itself, but as the expression of the joy of simply existing. This is something which is always there for us to access at any time anywhere, in fact it can only be accessed when we relax into the present moment.

Planetary Alignments September 2018

This is the first of a new project of summarizing the key planetary and star alignments for every coming month. I am not making any prediction of what is going to happen, as that is always up to free will, I am just reading some of the energies coming to us from the sky. The purpose is to assist people to navigate the energy flow of the days, and for people to be able to time their energy work and projects to the planetary alignments.
Of course I can not address all aspects and all energies of the month so I am focusing on the most significant moments as I see them.

If you want to understand more about the type of astrology I do, you can read here :

This summer has seen a lot of retrograde planets, bringing a lot of focus on inner work, review, re-evaluation, shadow work, etc. Since the end of august and as we go through september, planets turn direct again and we are entering a new phase with new projects, more action and covering new territory as we integrate the lessons of this fading retrograde season.

Tomorrow, on september 5/6th, a grand trine involving Mercury and Athena in Virgo, Saturn in Capricorn, and Uranus in Taurus will activate as Mercury and Athena enter Virgo. This grand trine will be further activated as Saturn who has been retrograde, stations and turns direct again, on the same day.

This is a powerful energy which will be active and will build up for several days and will culminate at the powerful new moon on 9/9. It is a grounding stabilizing energy (Earth trine), to assist us to bring Light in our lives and in our minds, to separate the wheat from the chaff, to get new downloads and insights in order to move forward and ground, stabilize and manifest our new projects.

The new moon in Virgo on 9/9 has many interesting and powerful planetary alignments. Venus in particular is in focus, as she enters Scorpio just a few hours before the new moon. Venus is now at its closest to Earth so her energy is stronger and she is also about to turn retrograde in early october. She is now covering the territory which she will revisit again twice as she goes retrograde and turns direct again, so the questions and aspects of our lives that will be worked on during retrograde are being brought to our consciousness through september. This whole process is happening through the end of 2018 and is a major theme for the energies of these next few months.

When Venus does this retrograde phase at its closest point to Earth, she goes back and forth creating this loop pattern in the sky, which is actually one of the points of the pentagram of the famous Venus rose pattern :

Venus is the energy of the Goddess, lover, and beauty archetypes in all of us. When she goes through the retrograde period, this is a period of facing and reviewing how we relate to this within us. The main question is what inner aspects of us that relate to these Venus energies are we externalizing and attracting outside in our circumstances ? We will talk more about this process over the next few months as she turns retrograde in october.

Venus is doing this whole process in the signs of Libra and Scorpio, which is very significant. Libra is her home sign so she is stronger there, it's the energies of partnerships, justice and balance. Scorpio follows Libra, bringing the results of that partnership : merging, transformation, alchemical death and rebirth, alchemical marriage, etc.
These are important themes for Venus and is it very significant that she will cross from Libra to Scorpio on the day of the new moon, just 8 hours prior.
It is even more significant that as she does so, she activates two powerful aspects called a grand square and a kite :

The kite is a completion of the Earth grand trine we mentioned earlier. The energy of the grand trine will be channeled into the rebirth of Venus energies as she enters Scorpio.
Uranus is especially important here as he is in opposition to Venus and will be involved in all the aspects. Uranus is the energies of inter-dimensional communication, downloads and insights, that in this case will assist the rebirth of Venus Goddess energies during the new moon.
The grand square involves Lilith south node, and Varuna north node, which will bring the energies of our cosmic origins (Varuna) and the cosmic womb (Lilith) in this process.

This new moon is in the sign of Virgo, which is one of the archetype of ancient temple priestess, the energy of creating order and birthing Soul energies through the physical body. Neptune in Pisces in opposition to the new moon brings energies of Oneness into the picture. The sextiles between the new moon, Jupiter, Pluto and Neptune, all in feminine signs, bring an energy of ease to surrender into the unconditional Goddess presence. This will also last for a few days after the new moon. There are other powerful aspects at this new moon but covering it all would be too long.

The energies until this new moon are stabilizing and softer, and the energies that will come after this new moon are more about going forward and making things real.

On september 11, Mars enters Aquarius. He is covering the same territory that he did during his retrograde phase and so this is bringing conclusion, putting the lessons into practice, for this process.
As Mars enters Aquarius this activates a double square between Venus Uranus and Mars.

This very much amplifies the energies and connects together Mars and Venus and the retrograde process of inner review they are both going through this year, so this aspect is very much about conciling masculine feminine and male female and opposite polarities. Uranus brings an energy of unexpected events and actions, release of pent up energies, and downloads and insights. This will start on september 11 and last over the next few days and it will be a time to be careful about tensions, to stay calm and use situations constructively, to avoid polarizing situations too much, to concile polarities involved in the situation within us and to look at the higher purpose behind the situations.

On september 17 around 5am UTC, the moon aligns in the direction of the Central Sun together with Vesta. Vesta is a priestess archetype who is keeper of the sacred flame of the Goddess, the fire representing the manifested Light presence of the Goddess on Earth and the kundalini energies. She has been aligned with the Central Sun direction for a few months and this is the last few days of this alignment.

This energy aligning with the Moon will last for a few hours before and after 5am UTC and is a very good time to do energy work, in particular to bring Central Sun and Goddess energies on Earth, with sacred sexuality/kundalini work and/or other practices. This can help to bring resolution and release to the intense energies of this period.

Then will come the september equinox on the 23rd. At the equinox the Sun enters Libra, bringing energies of Justice, Balance, reconciling opposites. The Sun will be opposing Chiron and asteroid Hygeia in Aries, while Vesta together with Saturn in Capricorn form a double square with Sun and Chiron.

Chiron and Hygeia in Aries represent the healing of our core wounds. As they oppose Libra this is the energy of inner understanding that can bring reconciliation and forgiveness within. Saturn and Vesta together joining in this process is about facing reality, seeing the effects of causes and transmuting them into Light with the sacred fire of the Vesta Goddess.
Mars and south node together in Aquarius will be trine to the Sun and sextile Chiron and Hygeia, assisting us to take action, trying new different approach and insights to address our past accumulated energies and assist the healing process.
Two days later the full moon comes and the Moon will be aligned with Chiron and Hygeia at this time, bringing more energy and Light into this same process.

So this is a powerful period of time to do shadow work, healing work, addressing the core wounds of relationships to others and of human society as a whole, transmuting them into the sacred Kundalini fire of the Goddess presence.
