I will write again about the fourth chakra using the mirror simile. I am not a scholar but rather a mystic. I have made a very brief and casual study of the chakra’s and did read a few paragraphs about the Kundalini, two and a half or three decades ago. I am mystic and I do what I call mysticism’s. I discover that there is something I am to do and set about trying to see what it is. From there I will pull one word at a time from the void and write it down until an idea begins to take shape. It is only when I finish the work that it is clear what I am doing. It is the same way I write this blog. Years ago I did a mysticism of the seven primary chakra’s. They are the focus of my spiritual work today and this blog is about that work.
The fourth chakra is as a mirror. A mirror we can step into and control. The integrity born of truth is the secret the allows me to take this step. As I gaze into the mirror unable to secure my passage the images it reveals show me the way. The way I am and the burden that anchors me on the outside of my destiny. The burden, or wealth, that will not make this passage are the lies that I have told myself. The falsehoods about how I am and who is to blame. I am free to learn the lessons the mirror reveals and discover my true nature, dressing the image I see to resemble that image. It is this work that gains passage. When the image I see is true I become the image in the mirror and the fourth chakra becomes a passage, no longer a mirror. This is the magical nature of who we are.
Once I remember my future, my destiny, letting go of the false-comforts that restrain me I am free to make how I am be who I am. While my gaze is fixed on the image I only see how I am and who I am provides the image, to teach me, from the other side of the mirror. This is providence. Should I choose to make the image, seen here in the temporal world, that of my teacher from the other side of the fourth chakra, the higher chakra’s reign into human form and spiritual life has a temporal reality.
That is the life of this mystic. Just now I am still working on it and that of course creates paradox. It is working on it that prevents or prohibits success. At some point I must accept that there is no work to do, that destiny is now and how I am is who I am.
