Deep in the pity place, a moment's Grace
A descent to transcend the tears.
Sweetest ecstacy, the blending of pain and purity.
A state to aspire to, to inquire into
How do we meet non-love with love?
Consistently, patiently, tenderly, fiercely.
Each flash of disapproval, rejection
Self-berate, outer hate, judgement and casting of shame
Turn it all towards the flame
Of a love that burns
Ravishingly, or with low slow ember glow
It burns through the Sacred Wound
To Ignite Radiance
Shine bright soul, you are loved, you are LOVE
Love & The Sacred Wound
The grasping comes from a place of fear, which in turn vibrates from a deep inner wound; the Sacred Wound we receive at conception. Yes... you too! We are all blessed with the challenge of holding an expression of a Sacred Wound, it isn't personal, it is Universal, and it impacts the very evolution of our species, of our consciousness and forms the quest of our life. We unconsciously live our lives as an ongoing exploration into how to sublimate this Sacred Wound and return to our true state, that of the pure vibration of Love.
"We all carry some kind of wounding – even the young child carries the Sacred Wound as a seed that will inevitably find its way into the world.
One of the great revelations of the Venus Sequence is that our wounds are here to serve our higher purpose, so we need not flinch away from them."
Richard Rudd (Golden Path ~ Venus Sequence)
My current exploration is taking me deeper into a contemplation practice seated around the guidance channeled into existence by Richard Rudd; The Gene Keys and the Golden Path... I am delving into the Venus Sequence part of the Golden Path right now as I prepare to attend a workshop this weekend. This sequence invites us to commit firmly to the Path of Love using our relationships as our portals of transformation. It takes the relatively commonly known philosophy of recognising the other as our mirror into deeper and more refined waters. At my somewhat naive level of awareness, my simplified interpretation is that it isn't so much that the other is a direct mirror, but rather that their behaviour, insensitivity and clumsiness in the ways they sometimes relate provides us with the perfect triggers to activate our own shadow reactions. Our practice then becomes to deepen our awareness of our own reactor states, to turn the ray of love and understanding on our reaction, hit the pause button, then choose a more love-infused response.
The Gene Keys points us towards our particular set of shadow expressions, which can be transmuted by loving awareness to the Gift of our being (how we are designed to Serve life), and ultimately guide us to surrender to such a point that the Siddhi (state of Enlightenment) of the Gene Key can infuse us and our relationships and lives.
Of course the Gene Keys and the Golden Path are but one mode to support our explorations (if you feel drawn to look deeper into this path you can find more information here); there are many philosophies, practices, spiritual paths, and the simple attentiveness to life itself that can enrich our journey with joy, laughter, peace and a deepening of meaning and fulfilment. Kundalini Yoga has consistently been my gateway into deeper and deeper levels of awareness and the best support to any other contemplation practice. And at the heart of all of these conscious ways lies the vibration of Love, and so the question I invite right now is... "How does YOUR love burn through the wounds to the inner LIGHT of your Radiance?"
Enjoy the contemplation ;-)
