THE UNITY THERE IS AND THE COMMANDMENT TO ACKNOWLEDGE ITS PRESENCE WHEN YOU ARE THERE
* Background story *
The Rabbis taught: Four entered the Garden. They were Ben Azzai, Ben Zoma, “the Other” and Rabbi Akiva.
Rabbi Akiva said to them, “When you come to the place of pure marble stones, do not say, ‘Water! Water!’
for it is said, ‘He who speaks untruths shall not stand before My eyes'”.
Ben Azzai gazed and died. Regarding him the verse states, ‘Precious in the eyes of G-d is the death of His pious ones’.
Ben Zoma gazed and was harmed. Regarding him the verse states, ‘Did you find honey? Eat as only much as you need, lest you be overfilled and vomit it’.
Acher clipped the saplings before their time.
Rabbi Akiva entered in peace and left in peace.
** Zohar **
The ancient Saba stood up and said to Shimon bar Yochai, “Rabbi, Rabbi! What is the meaning of what Rabbi Akiva said to his students, “When you come to the place of pure marble stones, do not say ‘Water! Water!’ lest you place yourselves in danger, for it is said, ‘He who speaks untruths shall not stand before My eyes.'” But it is written, ‘There shall be a firmament between the waters and it shall separate between water (above the firmament) and water (below the firmament)’. Since the Torah describes the division of the waters in to upper and lower, why should it be problematic to mention this division? Furthermore, since there are upper and lower waters why did Rabbi Akiva warn them, “do not say, ‘Water! Water!'””
The ancient Saba answered, “Rabbi, Rabbi, Holy Lamp. Surely the pure marble stones are the letter yud – one the upper yud of the letter aleph, and one the lower yud of the letter aleph. Here there is no spiritual impurity, only pure marble stones, so there is no separation between one water and the other; they form a single unity from the aspect of the Tree of Life, which is the vav in the midst of the letter aleph. In this regard it states, ‘and if he take of the Tree of Life (and eat and live forever)'”
Explanation: At the level of the Alef = Echad = One =Unity (a level of perception – and the one & only unconditional aspect of existence) …
is made up of a diagonal line which is a Vav
on its axis
and two yuds
one above the line and one below
At the level of Alef (Unity/the place of No Spiritual Impurity), there is a Single Unity of the Tree of Life, which is represented by the Vav (line)
This is the place of Everlasting Life
What exactly is opening on 11.11.11? My take is that a porthole to unity consciousness has been birthing in the past year or so, reaching its final stretch in July/August of 2010 through these past few weeks, when all energies have been off the charts. I want to clarify that this doesn’t mean that if you haven’t been feeling blissed out 24/7 you are not on the wave or that all this is a load of crap. The idea of birthing is that every pang of anguish and terror gives way to ever new dimensions of enlightenment and peace, which are etched into universal consciousness by virtue of your extraction powers. The cycles of descent and ascent in these days and weeks are downloading the highest-ever frequencies known to humanity and all its saints. The very flashes of unity into which We are tapping and relishing know only the motion of perpetual ascension and work to sweeten everything that preceded them with the Souce of all–infinite Love which brought everything into being and to which all pines. We are double agents, but our true alleigance is to that which we are made of, to that which we are no more than an extension of, to that which Authored our life and shard every moment of exasperation, delight, and tumult. To the place in which all equalizes into oneness, which is the leaping pad for everything to sprout into All that it is. We are nearing days in which language will laugh at itself and reveal that it too is in service of Unity. We are coming home, to our true home, where 1 is the only number, and where 1 gives birth to 11, in which Unity is a vessel for greater unity, Unity that is conscious of itself and therefore even more whole than when it began. This is our journey, all experiences are pouring into the rectification and rebirth of every particle of our beings.
SO excited to be with You on this journey; please do not hesitate to be in touch.
With outpouring love for You,
Today (Friday) is the first day of the dawning of unity consciousness that has never been experienced before–not even by the Divine itself. The awareness that will unfold in the coming moments, hours, days, weeks, months and years is the culmination of all of human history and the very purpose of Creation. Let’s take a look at the chart for this momentous day (noon, 28 October 2011, Jerusalem):
A few comments on the chart:
1) Neptune and Chiron in 1st first house: If this was a person’s chart, I would say that this person’s identity will be excavated only through deep processes of spiritual healing, in which spiritual growth accelerates healing and vice versa, throughout life, while all the time amassing robustness of personality and self-knowledge, even though they may be delayed until the fruits of healing blossom. This person’s sense of self in this sense would be almost retrospective, realizing who they have become, only in light of how far they have come, while the needle-point of their personality in this moment will be a sort of blind spot, hidden by the burden of soul demands and healing processes churning deep within almost incessantly. Since we are talking about a global scale, and not just an individual person, we may say that the changes which are going to be taking place during this time may happen with an initial lack of self-consciousness, in the sense that they may whisk us away into new modes of being without our even realizing the massive tidal waves of change taking place within and without. It’s almost as if the news will be reporting that a new dawn has broken, but it will be in the guise of normalcy, such that only if we painstakingly compare one moment to the next we will realize the magnitude of what is taking place. This comparing however, is altogether unneccessary, as the level of self-consciousness that we are used to having of events and change is miniscule compared to the awareness that is being birthed through the changes that are unfolding. In other words, it may be better if we do not take diligent notes of what is happening, because the ‘we’ that is taking these notes is exactly what is dissolving into purer form. We will not lose our individuality, in the same way that a person with Neptune and Chiron in the 1st does not lose themselves; rather, the reigns are given over to the deeper, wiser and eternal forces that stimulate expansion and healing. The fact that Chiron is in Pisces only accentuates the fogginess that will be felt, but the guideline is the same: there is a light that is strong enough to shine in this fog, and that is what we are looking for, rather than try to make our dim lights try to penetrate that which is more refined, we keep our eyes out for the rays that carry the vibration of all that we are yearning for and all that we have been promised for eternity.
2) Neptune and Chiron opposite Mars in Leo in the 7th house: Counter to the sense of losing ourself in foggy, confused, amorphous anticipation is a strong, direct and bold desire to exert ourselves and be seen, to shine in our glory and to move forward with precision and selfhood. Could these two impulses be any more opposed? Not really. Moreover, they are both aggravated by an incessant probing energy, seeking to go deeper and deeper into every conflict, tension and potential minefield, by the Mercury-Venus-Moon stellium in Scorpio (10th house). Deep emotional and mental probing, questioning and circling, a loss of a limited sense of self in the onset of higher dimensions of being and becoming, and a persistent desire to be seen, accepted and loved for all that we are–these make up the heated T-square of the day. The answer to balancing these energies may life in the realms of creativity and grounding, embodied by Taurus in the 4th house of home, and Gemini in the 5th house of creativity and children. Strive to be like a child, give up trying to take notes and keep track, be who you are in the moment with less censorship, and let the processes carry themselves out. You may find that traditional, biologically-evolutionary linked activities such as cooking, cleaning, putting things in their place, marking territory, and gathering with your tribe, are comforting and reassuring. Just be sure to let your streak of individuality reign free in all that you do. This will be your breath of fresh air, in every moment.
3) Saturn in Libra may be what saves the day, exerting an all-too-necessary force of restraint and balance on these pressure points in the chart. Everything is being weighed and accounted for, everything is finding its place — parts of ourselves within, parts of our lives, nations across the world, and all the words themselves. While our instinct may be to accelerate all forces of healing and probe to the depths and salvage all that we can, there is a force in the background that is ever-present and ever-aware of the natural place of all things, of the perfection of being that vibrates calmly and radiates balance and harmony. Because of this, all of our busy-bee running around may be necessary to prove to ourselves that something is happening…but once we realize and affirm the newness of what is becoming, then everything may in fact become quite calm. Almost like a two-year-old having a tantrum; the moment they realize that they are seen, they can revert to carefree joy and content as if nothing had ever ticked them in the first place. Find your pillars and stability and stillness–these as always will be precious footholds on the mountain stretching up to the heavens before you.
Blessings on your journey,
