Kundalini The Pillar Of Appointment

Truth And Justice

Located at the top of the sternum is the fifth chakra. It is powerful. I know it as The Sea of Justice and The Seat of Truth. One of its attributes is its connection to the third chakra, Ego. Ego, or the third chakra, resides at the solar plexus. Ego is the crown, the achievement of the lower chakras. It must give permission if we are to grow into the higher chakras. The water for this growth is justice, we must accept things as they are. Acceptance is an attribute of the fourth chakra, Compassion. Compassion resides in its chakra at the center of the sternum. It is intended as a germ to infiltrate and bind the seven chakras as one. Ego, Justice, Truth and Acceptance are the key to this growth.

The fifth chakra, due to justice, (things being as they are and no other way), is connected to our ability to hear. Its attribute, truth, is connected to speech. These are spiritual qualities and both are silent. They are power. When ego accepts compassion it calms the Sea of Justice, the sky’s clear and light begins to infiltrate reality.

My recent post, Truth and Justice, is reposted above as a reference for Light Gate – Acquaintance/Family and Place/Flesh – Spirit Gate. They belong together. 

Light Gate – Acquaintance/Family

After turning the key of acceptance truth and justice comfort the ego. The voice of truth reassures, the sound of justice quiets and the restlessness of the ego dissipates. Calm begins to rule. With calm comes light. On the brow, between the eyes, is a chakra. I know it as Light Gate, some call it The Third Eye. The calm realized by ego after crossing the bridge that restores Justice and Truth, allows the gate that is the sixth chakra to clear. When this gate, Light Gate, is open, light begins to permeate Justice and Truth. Ego, by the liquid nature of Justice, becomes saturated. Light Gate is considered a High Chakra its nature is spiritual. Its corresponding Lower Chakra is the second chakra, located at the sacroiliac crest. I know the second chakra as Acquaintance. This chakra and its quality of acquaintance is developed early in life beginning, of course, with family and prior to the development of Ego, the third chakra. It is fundamental. When the gate that is the sixth chakra is clear light reaches the second chakra, the appointment that is acquaintance becomes clear and the spiritual aspects of justice and truth permeate our person. It is important to note that the bridge between the higher and lower chakras is the fourth chakra, Compassion. Any attribute of Compassion received by Ego turns the key and unlocks the bridge between the higher and lower chakras. Compassion is a bridge because it is absolute. It only exists in an absolute measure. Always enough. Naturally once this bridge is crossed its attributes permeate our person along with Truth, Justice and Light.

Place/Flesh – Spirit Gate

I did not think I would include the first and seventh chakras in this post, but here I am. At one time I considered the seventh chakra as Heavenly Acquaintance but was never comfortable with that. After all ‘Heaven’ what is that?  Since then I have learned quite a bit about spirit and now see that the seventh chakra is a gate. Spirit Gate. It corresponds to the first chakra which is Place, Flesh itself. Obviously we begin to develop this in the womb. It exists before our person arrives. It is spirit that animates flesh and so you see the corresponding link between Place/Flesh and Spirit Gate. Those spirits that are of a good nature are acquainted with us through this gate, Spirit Gate. Should we allow the absolute qualities of Compassion to permeate our person binding the seven chakras, as one, we connect Heaven and Earth. We create the pillar that can be our appointed person, free of distraction. It is a realization, not an accomplishment. I see this realization as the Kundalini completed.

The first chakra is located at the pelvic floor and the seventh chakra is found just above your head, as a crown. It is directly above the pillar that is the spine.

Mystical Me

For as long as I have pursued mysticism I have known I would make my work, and its result, public. It was in 1981 that I put down the fight and accepted what seems the only life-choice being presented to me, mysticism. I married in 1985. I felt obligated. I had been with Lynn for eleven years and for seven of those I was at my absolute worst behavior. I felt I owed her something, and, although I tried, I could not dissuade her from marriage. It was rough right from the start. My honeymoon was the worst experience of my life and by the third week of marriage I was being threatened with divorce a few times a day. I pressed on, after all I made a committment. I figured she would not be able to sustain this dysfunction over time as it alone would ruin the marriage and I had the skills as well as the committment to help her repair her life. By the early 1990’s I had invested everything I had in the marriage. I had two young children in the house and damage control had become my full-time occupation. I was unable to work enough to thrive because my absence from the home was an excuse for Lynn to rage and threaten myself and the family. We could have easily been doing quite well, building a comfortable future, but she would not allow it. I realized that I had nothing left to invest in the marriage, I had put it all in and fulfilled my commitment. I told Lynn. I told her we should go ahead with the divorce she talked about everyday or fix the finances. Our marriage could not survive the financial state it was already in and I would not consider staying on without professional counseling. She never talked of divorce again. Counseling was a waste of time. In the end she doubled down on her determination to ruin my life. She took up with another man and walked out on the family. At her direction my already impossible financial condition went off the cliff. I hung in there. Life eventually presented an opportunity to remove the children, and myself, from the house we were in and file for divorce. That was January of 1999.

Looking back I do not know what I might have done differently. I am who I am. If I remove the twelve years of rage, from 1969 to 1981, I would have had a completely different life. In the last seven years of my rage, Lynn, was by my side. This is where my sense of obligation to her came from. I was free of the rage for four years by the time I married. Although I have finally restored my business my finances are still precarious. My day-to-day cash flow is acceptable but the tax disaster that resulted from this train wreck remains unresolved. As for my mystic life, I am beginning to see the light of day and expect to fully recover. I remain convinced that the pursuit of mysticism is the only thing I need to do to succeed. It works, I have restored myself twice with it. There is no other motivation in my life. Not that other things are unimportant, relationships and the like.  I only know how to fulfill them through my life of mysticism. All matters are given their appointment and importance or there is no path forward. Such is this mystic’s life. As for Lynn, I wish her well. I harbor no ill will. I do not hold her responsible for what I did to myself. Jon and Kait, my children, hey they are great!

This post is about the expectation that I need to make who I am public. My mystic reality. It has always been clear to me that I can not avoid that. It does make me very uncomfortable but there is no value in something that remains secret. Hidden from view. The discomfort will pass.

I created this blog thinking it would help me piece myself, my mystic, back together and it has. I also knew that it would expose me, make my private life known and that there is a completion that can only be found in that exposure. I have been blogging away, expecting a personal acquaintance to find the blog, share it, and then, by default… exposed! Now that that has happened I find it is still up to me to present myself and the idea still ties my back in a knot. Ouch. I will keep doing it as I see no other way forward and it is what I want to do. Please stop by from time to time and read the blog. It has been well received and I enjoy the company.

Standing Room

Open the way making known to all the true identity given to myself. Using the structure of foundation reveal my ability beginning with control of the structure of the pyramid of circumstance. Secure the positions of this pyramid using the base to lift it into place. Using the higher chakras establish as my known person… wisdom. Allow justice and truth to permeate community releasing all conflict, restoring calm by the depth of justice. Present as my identity, my one self, revealing to all, who I am, as I reach the gate to let light reign. Fix identity to permanence attaching circumstance above the crown as the tide of justice fills reality.

We are made of water. Justice is its body. Sometimes we sink to its dark dark depths sometimes we choose to be thrown about on its rough and tumble surface. Between these two is the calm where all is known and understood. Some call it the Kundalini. I know it by a number of names and descriptions. My personal path includes the Kundalini but I know this place as the Key Of Solomon.

Why

Why do I write this stuff? If I had my druthers I would keep it all hidden, private. Some of these posts can really tear me up. Emotionally. I have always kept it private. A handful of people, who know me personally, have known something of it. Anymore my life just does not work if this is kept inside of me. That tears me up more than putting it out here. So you see it is a bit selfish, a way to keep my stress level down and that helps me manage my health. Maybe someday I will learn to let go a little and it seems that this work may be helping me with that as well. So there you have it, I am just trying to live my life and get from one day to the next.

Walking With Christ

Years ago, somewhere in the area of 1982 or 83 I met Christ. It was the most frightening experience of my life. I was in the midst of rehabilitating my life. Unable to work I was teaching myself to stand up. I was bent. I took up bartering with a man who was working on his PhD in Transpersonal Psychology. He used Acupressure in his work and I performed Acupressure and acted as his counselor in exchange for the same. We did this for at least three years, maybe more. Intense psychotherapy. I had made the commitment to change my life and this was the path I found. My life had been filled with rage. I realized I am a mystic in 1969 and I did not like that. I got very angry and stayed that way until 1981, realizing then that the anger had made me what I was what I was angry about. I decided that I would embrace mysticism and if it had legs it would become my walk and if it did not I could finally be done with it and get on with my life.

I woke up one night, terrified, I was lying on my stomach pillow over my head, arms on top of that and desperately working to forget something. There was an enormous racket in my room above my bed. The noise kept up until I was fully awake and then a little longer. Long enough to assure that I was fully awake and asking myself, what the hell is going on? I realized I was terrified and in a full sweat, but not because of this racket, the sound, apparently, of large wings beating. Oddly, that did not bother me at all. I sat up and began to piece things together.

I had traveled, in a dream, for the deliberate purpose to meet someone. This person was made, as near as I could tell, of light. So bright that in order for me to approach a garment of some sort covered all but the head, hands and feet. I asked this one if he was who I thought he was, Christ, and the response was yes. I had traveled to meet this person and ask this question and yet was terrified. I immediately returned to my sleep place and furiously worked to forget it. I already told you how well that plan worked.

During that time of my life I did a lot walking, part of my bid to rehabilitate myself. Get rid of my constant pain, stand up straight and get back to work. It took two years to finish that work and be strong enough to even consider work again. One of my favorite walks was on the saltwater marshes of the San Francisco Bay. It was on one of these hikes that I realized, this was the place I had come to and walked with Christ. The whole business has such a profound and deep meaning for me personally there are no words to convey it.
