It is our destiny to reach for ever-higher consciousness and wisdom. By design, like a bird, we can fly!
The point of this metaphor is to demonstrate that we need these two sets of oppositional forces in perfect balance to activate effortless communion with our highest wisdom.
When the forces of flight align with each other, an airplane (or, as the metaphor goes, your Conscious Higher Self) flies or flows in a level direction of motion.
A balance in the two sets of polarities (Lift/Weight and Thrust/Drag/Resistance) relative to the moment and each other.
Each force should not be defined by duality but by its dynamic relation in their respective pairing or polarity. Each serves a great purpose. We aim to bring these dynamic forces together, expressed through the intentional self-connection relationship, creating a harmonized state.
We need just enough of our thinking-mind (Weight & Resistance) in perfect symmetry, harmony and balance with your feeling-mind (Lift & Thrust)
Ascension, connection to the heavens, opposite of gravity, rising into feeling-mind
Descension, connection to the earth, gravity, grounding, descending into the thinking-mind
Intention, motivation, passion, the active forward momentum quality of the feeling-mind
Practicality, caution, fear. The thinking-mind quality of applying the breaks and going into the opposition.
When in a state of balance and harmony, the two sets of polarities create the perfect opportunity for Ascension or Descension, appropriate and relative to the moment.
Conversely, we can create imbalance and attract calamity.
At times, we perceive ourselves, others and our life through the lens of ego’s limitations and old stories and habits.
At times, we perceive ourselves, others, and our lives through the lens of ego’s sense of entitlement and self-aggrandizement disguised as our Conscious Higher-Self, an absolute imposter.
When in a state of balance and harmony in all forces, we find that perfect balance of ‘woman/man on earth under heaven.’
The more often we do the Self-Connection Meditation Practice – (the practice of going inward and rising into our Conscious Higher Self awareness), the more we benefit from its harmonizing influence. That big gray organ inside our skull is infinitely plastic and moldable. Expose it to this harmonizing influence, and our brain begins to change for the better.
The intention of cultivating our self-connection deepens our ability to access our Conscious Higher Self and our intuitive gifts.
