These understandings have arisen through meditation and contemplation of the foregoing articles (Into the Void pts 1-3). Several aspects share common ground within each of these disparate ‘threads’: chaos, fear, death, destruction, and alienation on the one hand with contrasting themes: diamond clear radiant light, the All-seeing, All knowing ‘Eye’ etc, being at the opposing end of the spectrum. An integrating presence uniting these diverse forces lies with the witnessing consciousness evident throughout.
The soul has many personalities through which it may grow and evolve and I am but one. It is not my soul; I am a fragment of it.
The army of clay marionettes (see pt3) are all fragments of one soul arriving at a point of unity within their evolution. Through this amalgamation the one soul may be invited to a higher plane of consciousness; this is group initiation.
Many souls exist upon the plane of souls forming brotherhoods of even more highly evolved souls. They in turn form even larger, more expansive, refined vibrations of conscious awareness. Even the monads are many. Aspects of all these levels are accessible through the soul infused personality.
|Visions of Reality|
Associated with the throat in the eastern chakra system and the Vesica Piscis (see below) in sacred geometry, it is clearly a pathway to communion, as well as an instigator of creativity; the supreme expression of which is the creation of life itself in its many and varied forms.
Daath is a doorway to anywhere and anything but in order to partake of the rich nectar held at its core the personality must take a giant leap into the great unknown. It must surrender every idea, every notion, and every belief of which it perceives itself to be, and embrace the darkness of its own nature; the antithesis of all that is safe and all that is known. This is the chaos, destruction and death experienced during dream state in the foregoing accounts.
Holding everything yet being nothing, it is a space of infinite stillness, infinite patience, infinite possibilities, infinite darkness that is absolute perfection. Yet this space is only arrived at through apparent chaos, destruction and death from the perspective of the ego self. There has to be an absolute let go where there is no ego, no self not even a ‘higher self’ or soul. There is nothing, absolutely nothing related to identity in any form.
As the self gives in to its embrace, dissolving completely, it becomes the very essence of dark, and with this immersion the light spontaneously arises from within. The infinite light of Daath can only be realised through total embracing of its dark. In supreme absorption, in consummate blackness, the light emerges triumphant.
Chaos, death, destruction and disease all must be embraced, with the highest reward being absolute no-thingness from which anything is possible. In letting go and embracing all, moment by moment, there is nothing for the personality to ‘do’ but to embrace, appreciate and welcome life. Simply receive. And in this receiving there is so much it is able to give...
