We have two basic facets to our awareness. For well-being and growth both facets need addressing.
One side is our mysterious side, the other is the realm of reason.
Our mysterious side, our female side is our left side, the unknown. It is the centre of intuition and is a non-linear awareness.
The right side is host to our linear awareness, a world that has been ordered according to a system. It is known as our male side.
Adepts have expanded their descriptions and developed new systems. Systems that cross-culturally basically agree on many aspects of awareness.
Our left side is the side of dreaming and silence. It is largely invisible to our right side awareness, reason. In fact our reason, our self-chatter, is the barrier to this other facet of our awareness.
We are creatures of reason. However our reason needs ordering before it is ready for expansion.
Before the age of reason the world was lost to superstition. In these times it is lost to the rational.
Adepts have a very pragmatic way of working with the two bodies, the left and right.
We can liken it to a metalworker who shapes the pot on an anvil of a particular shape and beats with a precise hammer, created for the job.
The anvil is dreaming, awareness practices and silence. Dreaming sets an intent for expansion.
The hammer is knowledge of the minutiae of our lives, through direct observation. It leads to the conscious manipulation of behaviour to become more available and open to our nature. A nature beyond the duality of the world we inhabit.
The practices of awareness are more available than they have ever been. There is a great need for them in this crazy world.
Make use of what is available, discover a place of well-being within you, beyond the machinations of the world and shine out your light and understanding.
