Ultimate Fulfillment 77

by Christopher Lovejoy on September 27, 2015

How might divinity (7) beget ever more divinity (7) in a world where “sacred and divine in relationship” has been forsaken by so many on the surface of this planet for the sake of preserving and maintaining a conformed, controlled, and conditioned relationship with the mundane?

We are creatures of habit, conditioned to set up routines and follow them as if our lives depended on them (which, in some ways, they do), inside a matrix of control that monitors and reinforces a narrow bandwidth of strictly justified, justifiable thoughts, feelings, and behaviors.

In other words, we are, for the most part, a species of the living dead – dead to novel forms of conduct in our institutions of education, law enforcement, and entertainment. We are ghosts and ghouls who haunt this world as if it were a cultural graveyard full of crypts and tombs.

We are a dead species living in a dead world, going through the motions of mimicking already established patterns of thought, feeling, and behavior, adding tiny little individual twists on the various themes that guide and govern our lives and presuming to call them original.

Truth be told, we are pathetic beyond belief, allowing all manner of concentrated forms of social, economic, and political power to drive and dictate the courses of our lives. Thankfully, however, the human story doesn’t end here, given what tiny little glimmers of hope remain.

In my recent post, I shared these relations:

soul (sacred) and spirit (divine)
coherence and consistency
sacred (masculine) and divine (feminine)
encounter and experience

serenity and intimacy (sacred)
beauty and harmony (divine)
ecstasy as a blessing (sacred and divine)
ecstasy as a convergence (sacred and divine)

In this post, I will add some flesh and blood to these paired relational bones in a bid to breath new life into what it means to be awake, aware, and alive as spiritual beings in human form, in a world that has embraced its humanity at the expense of integrating its sanctity and divinity.

Suppose for a moment that we are all, each of us, gods in miniature, in the process of tapping a vast potential to go deep into dense matter, shaping it and transforming it in ways and by means that are entirely and breathtakingly original. How might we think, feel, and behave?

In a post I wrote and published on this site more than 5 years ago called The Seven Deadly Sins, I took a stab at coming to terms with our ghostly and ghoulish ways. If these sins are anything to go by, we are a proud, angry, lustful, slothful, envious, avaricious species of gluttons.

I am willing to concede (quickly, I might add) that this is somewhat of an overstatement.

Vibrating at a high frequency of consciousness has taught me that humanity, in this day and age, is remarkably resilient, if not unusually tolerant of its enslavement (both subtle and obvious) to socially engineered systems of control that care little (if at all) about its welfare and well-being.

High five, then, to anyone who can see that we are a species that has demonstrated so much grace under pressure, and high five, too, to anyone who can see that we are ready to move beyond our cages, to spread our wings and advance (perhaps quickly) in our evolution.

I shared a godlike perspective at the beginning of my post, The Seven Deadly Sins, and I reproduce it here for ease of reference:

Here and now, I am all that I can be.

I have it all: I have satisfied my every need and I have fulfilled my every desire. In good conscience, I can be, have, and do whatever I wish, whenever, wherever, and with whomever I wish. I have as much as I need to be who I am and I have as much as I desire to enjoy what I do. My life is complete: I enjoy blissful continuity and I am prepared to leave a lasting legacy.

In light of this perspective, let me go out on a limb here and ask a rather provocative, seemingly perverse question: how might we view greed, sloth, wrath, Pride, envy, lust, and gluttony as unconscious attempts at being or becoming divine, as potentially beautiful and harmonious?

When we die (transition), we experience a life review that is full of divine truth, love, and power.

We get to experience the consequences of our greed, sloth, wrath, Pride, envy, lust, and gluttony; we get to experience the consequences of our graspingly desperate, disparate attempts at being and becoming divine in our own tiny little universes in separation from the One.

With greed, we get to experience the consequences of seeking and finding the divinity of abundance in all that we are, in all the we have, in all that we do; with sloth, we get to experience the consequences of finding the presence of unity and the flow of divinity in effortless ease; with wrath, we get to experience the consequences of living large and powerful, of asserting the will to power with terrifying ease; with Pride, we get to experience, with godlike power, the consequences of assuming that we are more attractive, more effective, more accomplished, more important, more worthy than another; with envy, we get to experience the consequences of depriving and defeating another of our own kind so that we can embrace a sense of relevance, a divine sense of relevance in a world premised on exclusion and separation; with lust, we get to experience the consequences of losing ourselves divinely in the heat of the moment for the sake of being intimate with eternity; and with gluttony, we get to experience the consequences of tasting opportunities of excess, of filling ourselves up divinely, if not excessively.

The flavors, fragrances, and textures of these opportunities change as and when we introduce a sense of the sacred, as and when we care enough to be reverent with ourselves and others: we seek and find at no one’s expense (greed is no more); we find presence in peace and we find flow with blissipline (sloth is no more); we affirm and assert ourselves effortlessly, in truth, with love (wrath is no more); we find our significance by allowing life to live large through us and for us (Pride is no more) and we find our own relevance by allowing life to live large through us and for us (envy is no more); we find our True Selves divinely in the heat of the moment by being intimate with eternity (lust is no more); and we find ourselves in One Taste by getting our fill of the sacred and divine in unity and harmony (gluttony is no more).

As the world turns, the old forms are dropping away from the attention of those whose sights are set on lighter frequencies of consciousness. A new energetic lease on life is taking hold and many are taking back the locus of control, placing it firmly and lovingly where it belongs – at the heart of soul. From the heart of soul, we continue to seek and find new ways and means to express ourselves sacredly and divinely despite the many trips and traps that characterize the matrix of control. As the sacred masculine matures in loving, trusting, forgiving support of the divine feminine, an informed, inspired relation is being forged, breathing new life into old ways of relating, transforming them in the process. As the sacred masculine intent continues coherently to hold the space serenely for intimacy, the feminine is responding ever more consistently by holding a beautiful space for harmony to meet unity half way, making it possible and desirable for ecstasy to bloom and blossom in the midst of an ever increasingly energetically dead world. For the inspired feminine, divinity begets ever more divinity as and when she allows the sacred masculine to inform her sense of significance and relevance, even as the sacred masculine allows the divine feminine to be divinely inspired, allowing both to grow and flow with grace and ease.

In my next post, I ask: how might divinity (7) open up to infinity (8)?
