The Soul of America: New Beginnings 34

 

To Make This Bridge it is Necessary to BE THE BRIDGE

Last week’s entry, “Resuscitating the Indigenous Soul” was a turning point for this blog. The silence of
response was amazing: NONE. There were two comments, one concerned only with the last sentence, and
the other, a private email that indicated a very full understanding of the entry — because he did the work. Here lies the point where the blog changes, and I’m wondering what to do. I am not in the least bit upset with the ‘no response’, but am very interested in what to do from this point on — where more and more will be required of readers. So, let’s try to address this concern and see if it comes to some form of resolution.

The attempt of the blog entry was to begin bridging the Indigenous soul of this land with the deepest level of consciousness that it is possible to go into now — the latter almost always occurring through some kind of meditative-contemplative work — or results from undergoing some event that brings about humility  and vulnerability, and/or requires sacrifice and suffering  – not sought, but noticed.  Bridging-consciousness requires more than ‘thinking about’ how to re-enter collective soul life; it requires becoming the bridge. 

The entry opened into the WORK of seeing that the Indigenous Soul has not gone anywhere.  She is here as She always has been — and can be revived, can be re-entered, and in doing so, the real destiny of this land of America could be taken up again — this is the land destined to become the place where the “New Heaven and New Earth” awakens, an awakening immediately understood everywhere. This is as yet far away, but spiritual work does not happen in the same timing as civilizational timing. 

This possibility, though, cannot happen from within the civilizational consciousness of the day. We live in a highly layered illusory consciousness and connecting with something of depth from within flat, literal, everyday consciousness is impossible. Writing of a depth nature cannot be taken for its content alone. The content is nothing more than the visible expression of something going on at a much deeper level, known either through immediate heart feeling or intuition. It would have done no good to say something like this — for a reader that either happens or it does not. The ‘nots’ win.

I am NOT the one bringing this possibility of America about. Not in any way. It is just impossible to believe that the Original people of this land were here, for a while, to be wiped out and replaced by voracious land grabbers and developers for the purpose of fulfilling greed until destructive consciousness, starting here, spreads throughout the world until Earth must balance herself in such a violent manner that humanity will not live through the rebalancing. 

And, in spite of being a long-lived fantasy, we may have adopted being ‘western culture,’ originating in Greece, but that is not the true culture of this land. We have benefitted much from that adoption, but that culture went awry too — after Empedocles and Parmenides when it was stripped of its imaginal nature and became the logic and rational process of logic — culminating now in cyber-logic, which may be the end of humanity.

The blog began making the bridge between the Indigenous soul of this land and the present time. The open secret of such a bridge is that we have to BE THE BRIDGE, something quite different than knowing about it.

The Original TRI-UNITY of the Indigenous Soul was presented in three forms. To have any feeling at all of what was being said required the relatively simple act of placing attention into the center of each of the TRI-UNITY triangles — and noticing what happens inwardly, though that does require a minimum capacity of an awake inner life– the capacity for inwardly ‘seeing/hearing’, which is not a major capacity. And, while I asked, with the presentation of each triangle, that the reader make such an inward triangle and try to feel the wholeness of the three terms of each triangle — either that was so profound that every reader is still completely overwhelmed — or, more likely, the information alone makes no sense, or the triangles were ‘thought about’, which does nothing. 

There is certainly no lack of information in the present age of information. You can find, for each of the blogs, dozens who say such things on a website,a blog, or a video that supports the informational content of this entry and every entry — but, the moment something beyond taking in the information is required, the now completely installed LAZINESS of consciousness immediately and inevitably simply gives up, feeling that it is not possible to understand what in the world is trying to be stated.

It would be fine to just go on — except that when something to be worked with is not worked with, it adds, alas, to the dire condition that it is attempting to remedy. So, this concern is where my responsibility enters. 

my suggestion is to password protect the blogs, still announce them on facebook, but anyone wanting to work with them would email me with a request for the password. Once a person has the password, it will continue to work for subsequent blogs. From there, I’ll compile a list of the people requesting the password and after a time, if the list gets to the size of a group, I’ll suggest setting up a closed facebook group where more conversation can take place. Any other suggestions are welcomed.

Let’s consider this option — and probably in the next blog I’ll ask for interested people to email me and I will send a password for entry into further blogs.

 

The Soul of America: New Beginnings 33 – Resuscitating the Indigenous Soul

 

Resuscitating the Indigenous Soul

The indigenous soul lives within and as a dimension of the TRI-UNITY of Heaven (Father Sky), Earth (Mother Earth), and Human (the Two-Leggeds). This Tri-Unity is not ‘top-down’, but Whole – never one without the other two.

Imagine a triangle with one side being SKY, the other side being HUMANS and the bottom of the Triangle of unity being EARTH.

That time, because we think linearly, was long ago and concerns another people – we think. How oblivious we are to now being heavily psychically ‘layered’; the top layer being the matrix of digitalization of the world; a next layer being the stupidity of rationality and its accompanying logic – the questionable gift of Aristotle (leading to ‘science’ and ‘technology’ as god), which reveals the third layer, the false notion that our (western) heritage begins with the Greeks – which can we believe only in light of eradicating of what was here – but the soul of it cannot be eradicated. And then, the fourth, most recent layer, the ‘me-me’ of a false individualism.

We remain far, far — very far, from being HERE as we are layered over by the civilization that left culture long ago. So, there is nothing to ‘cultivate’, to turn-over as soil (read ‘soul’), nothing to renew, nothing of an organic nature in civilization.

We live in hell and are governed by the beings of hell.

The indigenous soul also lives within the MEANS of the original TRI-UNITY of Heaven, Earth, and Human. “Means”– the specific manner that forms a way of living the Tri-Unity. Imagine a second triangle with one side being SPIRITUALITY, the other side being  TECHNOLOGY and the bottom of the Triangle of unity being Earth-PRESENCE. This is the ‘earthology’ of the indigenous soul.

Nothing exists without all three- spirituality, technology, earth-presence happening as creating happening – not ‘happened’, but happening. These words – spirituality, technology, earth-presence are modern words, ahast! – civilizational words, but let’s see if we can witness ‘civilization’ undoing itself.

The Original people who are this land did not ‘have’ a spirituality; they lived as spiritual beings, soul beings, physical beings – and spiritual/soul beings included the Underworld. The Original people did all sorts of ‘technology’ (but not without simultaneously being spirituality and earth-presence)– rituals, dances, for example, to bring the rains – techne-ology – the ways of making. And they were ‘earth-present’, that is they did not ‘have’ earth-presence as one of the things they did – it is an aspect of the one-as-three.

The indigenous soul also lives within the METHOD – the ways of doing the TRI-UNITY as life. Method – the specific ways of doing according to the ‘means’ and the ‘vision’ – living harmoniously with the laws of vision and means.

Imagine a third triangle – with one side being CONCENTRATION, the second side being EXPANSION and the third side being BALANCE. Being fully soul present with everything. Concentration means being fully soul/sensory present within Earth. Expansion – times of ‘letting go’, being inwardly empty and thus within the fullness of everything and in rhythm with concentration –  Stillness in Motion. And balance – perfect rhythmic harmony of concentration-expansion.

This TRI-UNITY, given herein, alas, a very abstract manner but one which can be immediately felt — ‘Oh, yes!!” Immediately felt because these three ‘abstractions’ are also ‘codes’ for Heart Intelligence – the vision, the means and the method for living in harmony, living within the rhythms of the Whole, and living wholly receptively. And they are also, or can be incantatory — that is, once we see this Tri-Unity with the imagination of the heart, it begins to happen (again).

Who holds this vision, this means, this method together? The Elders. The Elders, however, are not the ‘old’ people, not literally. Anyone can be an Elder, under certain conditions, to be considered later. And we have no culture because there are no Elders, and thus there is nothing to hold it all together – a pretty good definition of hell! As these posts continue, ‘Earth-Eldering’ will be central as the new forming of new culture. 

A final vision – the ‘Triangle” – see it dimensionally, not flat; see it rotating, not static – Sky from the ‘Above’; Earth from the ‘Below’; “Here” as the being-created and creating middle.

The word ‘Indigenous”– two words here – “In” and “Degenous”. “In” signifies living ‘in-wardly’, living from within; everything as originating from within, and the ‘all-around’ , the land is also the ‘all within’. Civilization lives wholly from without – and from that ‘without’ – living only from the literalized senses, bolstering sense life with the cleverness of thinking that produces the layering – that’s living in hell.

The mystery word “Digenous” – means something like “Gendered”. To be opened up in a later post – the remarkable sense that all creating occurs from within and as gendered!  I will describe what ‘gendering-creating’ consists of in a later post.

The “Take-Away” from these considerations: “Take-Away” – a way of saying ‘what’s in it for me’.

The Indigenous soul knows nothing of ‘Take-Away”

Only Giving and Re-Giving Exists
