High and Low Interact Because

It would be so much easier to relate to the Mysteries if they didn’t seem to demand to be taken ever more seriously.

Grass-Roots Spiritual Philosophy 101

A simple seeker seemed to be lured by her Spirit teacher to believe that she could possibly learn to understand the deeper meanings of the interconnection between the Kabbalah Tree of Life and Tarot symbols through studying each of these mystery systems separately and then integrating them. She protested that she just didn't seem to have the mental capacity to go much beyond a surface awareness of life, as the mysteries taught. Not past tense, He insisted. There has always been a continuum of teachers in every age, who adapt what has been shared, as a sacred trust, with them, to the culture they live within, and are, at least to some extent, a product of.

Did not exist as anything more or less than mental concepts

To express the lived world of continuous experience and response,

That necessarily causes an expansion of consciousness, or awareness,

As a result of this evolutionary process.

But, she protested, consciousness rises.

Everything rises as it expands. Density of matter, or mind, moves up

As it reaches out.

It isn’t fair.

What isn’t fair.

I’ve spent countless hours learning to relate to specific centers

Of energy on the separate pillars of form, consciousness, and force.

And their specific interactions with other energies.

There are no other energies.

I Ching 8 – Closeness

The power of emotion drives thought. I feel, therefore I think (or do I just think that I feel whatever emotion I think I feel?

I Ching as a Way to Enlightenment

Today’s I Ching – 8 – Closeness

Water above, Earth below.

Closeness follows The Army

 

Spirit explains:

Yes. Closeness can refer to something or someone

Near to where we are, or to someone or something

Dear to us, and near to us, wherever we may be.

 

Personal.

 

Yes.

 

So, what is the message?

 

You and I are as close to each other, and to everyone and

Everything else, as we feel we are. We cannot choose

To feel close.

 

Then, emotion rules?

 

Yes.
