“Be not afraid of sudden fear, neither of the desolation of the wicked, when it cometh. For the LORD shall be thy confidence, and shall keep thy foot from being taken.”
- Proverbs 3:25-26
When God is abroad in judgments, He would not have His people alarmed. He has not come forth to harm but to defend the righteous.
He would have them manifest courage. We who enjoy the presence of God ought to display presence of mind. Since the LORD Himself may suddenly come, we ought not to be surprised at anything sudden. Serenity under the rush and roar of unexpected evils is a precious gift of divine love.
The LORD would have His chosen display discrimination so that they may see that the desolation of the wicked is not a real calamity to the universe. Sin alone is evil; the punishment which follows thereupon is as a preserving salt to keep society from putrefying. We should be far more shocked at the sin which deserves hell than at the hell which comes out of sin.
So, too, should the LORD’s people exhibit great quietness of spirit. Satan and his serpent seed are full of all subtlety; but those who walk with God shall not be taken in their deceitful snares. Go on, believer in Jesus, and let the LORD be thy confidence.
I am the secret held within the bud
The quenching of pure waters
I am the consuming of the flame
The deer of the untrod forest
I am birdsong of the coming dawn
& the dance of all creation
But who are you who made me open
Who made me thirst
Who set me ablaze
& who enraptured me
In this dance of love?
You are the secret
That causes words to prostrate
Hearts to open and lips to close
- Lewis Abdullah Cattell
Your priorities and understandings that have previously held sway may begin to experience a distinct change.
This doesn’t mean the change must destroy that which has served you and your family up to this point. It can merely mean that some new and precious understandings can be reached by all persons for whom your new energetic requirements have effect upon.
You may feel a sense of detachment about material acquisitions or of issues of power and position in the societal sense. You may even feel detached in how you view your current life as regarding the career choices and working conditions.
These Kundalini changes are often transient in that they are there to help you understand what is really important to you. They do not need to portend a discontinuance of the immediate dynamics of your complete social environment yet sometimes they will. They are as a remembrance perhaps of what is important in the present moment.
Others all around you may have different priorities. Family member’s friends and colleagues will have different priorities that may seem counter to your new realizations. You may wish to see them as areas of refinement these individuals have yet to understand or pursue and try not to judge them for this.
Yours may be the exact example that a divine source has placed amongst them so there is a teaching that can be given though one that merely responds to “expressed example” as a means of validating support.
Why does Kundalini come now in your life? I will only suggest “Why not now?” When is it appropriate for the enlightenment process to begin? Only that process can answer that as it has a far grander vision of who you really are.
Warm love keeps you weak.
Cold love makes you strong.
We each posses masculine and feminine energy within us… men fall a little deeper into their masculine just as women feel the intensity of the feminine. Balance is of divine importance.
The feminine is wild, destructive, and beautifully fierce. She is winter wilderness in the middle of the tranquil desert. Like a river, she flows abundantly releasing seeds into the fresh soil and nectar into the flowers. She is warm with her words, and kind with her smile. She kisses the wind with her eyes and heals with a touch. She is creation itself. She seeks trust, integrity, energy, nature’s art and the desire to receive love from the masculine.
Deep, seductive, and divine, just like the moon her aura is alarmingly captivating. This is her greatest strength, and weakness. Should she succumb to temptation she will lose her loving light. Her erotic scent lingers in the air, enticing, spellbinding, yearning for her masculine lover to take the reigns and possess her storm, if he so dares. When she glows before the midnight curtain she radiates with love, but becomes dangerously cold when she cannot show the world her blinding light. She controls the tides of the ocean much like her emotions govern her. Tide out, and she has gone too far into the wilderness. Tide in, and she drowns.
This will allow the Kundalini to thrive and burst
(blissfully) through what would remain of accrued blockages, collected over a
lifetime, and even farther back. Even as it is true that you will reap what you
sow - to state it biblically, for the body you wear right now, the energetics
will smooth if you consistently practice these qualities.
Forgiveness is a main stimulant of Kundalini
expression within one who has received the Shaktipat or one who has activated
through other means. Forgiveness is a divine aspect of the Law of Love. I would
suggest bringing this into your practices and interactions with others daily and
- blessings -
”That’s love,” say the ones who don’t quite know exactly what’s required.
To stay afloat in a kitchen filled with rain instead of fire.
Sparks aren’t the thing that has your backs when a storm beats down your door.
Zaps don’t inflate the life raft or later mop the sopping floor.
“It’s love,” I say that grows in static space between flickering.
Cooking meals when the oven’s cold and filled with bickering.
It’s love that keeps you back to back when the waves are all around.
“I’ve got you, babe,” and “I’ve got you; they’re not gonna take us down.”
Fireworks happen in the storm as thunder booms from the sky.
They live in the match that’s drenched, yet strikes; even though you don’t know why.
This unsavory encounter made me realize so much in so little time. From then on, the dawning became larger and larger, like an infinite spiral.
I saw him as he was. Stuck in his own web of energy, like viscous tendrils of darkness. I seperated myself from it. But I became so angry afterward. Not at him, but at Us.
The question isnt Why does God let these things happen, but Why do WE let these things happen.
Apathy is our downfall. Irresponsibility is our downfall. It is my downfall.
I want to step forward everyday with kindness and compassion in my heart. For all of Us.
I see so much SICKNESS in the world. I feel like the virus is a physical reflection manifested because of OUR soulful sickness.
We have to do better.
I think we are running out of time…
We are all we have.
Used to sound like this. I didn’t wish away the discomfort of that intensity. “Take this away or see me through,” I prayed over and over again… back when prayers made a difference or seemed to. Why do I torture myself with memories of a tortureless joy I’ll never know again? I hate it when good things end and I can’t get them back, no matter how hard I try. I deserve better. My beloved husband deserves better. My family deserves better. Deserving is irrelevant. Goodness is irrelevant. Torture is irrelevant. There is no god to give a damn. Divine love was the biggest pile of bullshit of my life. What a fucking waste of my last comfortable years.
I have so I should not want
