Cool Breeze, Warming Sun

by Christopher Lovejoy on May 13, 2018

Against a cool breeze under a warming sun, I walked at my leisure not far from home.

I was in contemplation of the contents of a book that I began reading earlier that morning, a book by Osho whose subject and theme stirred the heart of my soul with its many uncommon realizations on living and loving and trusting spontaneously … and … with blisscipline, I might add.

Blisscipline? Now there’s a curious word.

But also a word that names a fragrant blooming of consciousness like no other (thank you, Reverend Michael Beckwith), which draws us to a flower of ultimate fulfillment that arises from bringing together the best from traditional Eastern thought and classical Western thought to produce an exquisite expression in the ongoing transition between third and fourth density consciousness.

*

A blissful discipline is the ultimate orchestration between being and becoming, but with the ongoing transition in consciousness, two disparate kinds of preoccupation are coming up for processing: a preoccupation with having and doing and a preoccupation with being and knowing.

The ideal scenario in life and love, subjectively (for a person) and collectively (for a population), is to be preoccupied neither with having nor with doing, neither with being nor with knowing; rather, it is to realize a seamless growing with the flowing with respect to these attributions:


third density     fourth density

via affirmativa     via negativa
yes this, yes that     not this, not that

mind and spirit     heart and soul
having and doing     being and knowing

emphasis on achievement     emphasis on attainment
relentless focus on outcomes     leisurely focus on ways and means

comfort with entitlement     comfort with abandonment
classical West     traditional East

Here, the understanding is not a matter of this or that, but more a matter of this and that, and when I say this and that, I am speaking less of integration and recognition and more of oscillation and orchestration.

Let’s examine each of these paired items in turn, from the top down.

*

If you’re a student of the Law of One, then you will likely have encountered in your studies the notion known as density of consciousness, within which a predictable set of stable environmental conditions arises with which to expand, explore, express, and evolve a type of consciousness.

Just as one frequency of light causes the appearance of the color yellow, so too does yet another frequency of light cause the appearance of the color green; by analogy, just as one frequency of light causes the emergence of conditions to experience goodness (and its opposite by contrast), so too does another frequency of light cause the emergence of conditions to experience fairness (and its opposite by contrast).

In third density, many human beings are in a process of polarizing around a fundamental choice from which to expand, explore, express, and evolve in consciousness, and the choice is this: serve the self (at least 95% of the time) or serve the other (at least 51% of the time).

Parenthetically, these percentages are not arbitrary, but accord with the Law of One.

Serving the self with love at least 95% of the time will qualify a soul for one type of experience in fourth density consciousness, while serving the other with love at least 51% of the time will qualify a soul for another type of experience in fourth density consciousness. The service required, generally speaking, is about seeking and finding balance in love with a sound, stable sense of safety, satiety, and significance.

Presently, in the ongoing transition between third and fourth density, some human beings are participating in a process of pushing others to polarize in favor of serving the self while other human beings are part of a process in helping others to polarize in favor of serving others.

In the current octave of densities, spiritual beings in human form have, more or less, sporadic access to all densities, depending on the extent of their conscious evolvement and advancement as souls, but as a whole, humanity presently finds itself between third and fourth density:


8 so real (next octave)
7 so pure
6 so fine
5 so right
4 so fair

^ humanity is here ^

3 so good
2 so true
1 so real (this octave)

Note the placement as transitional, from goodness (feeling safe, satisfied, and significant) to fairness (true loving is fair to one and all, with the emphasis on “one” for those who are acting in service to self and with the emphasis on “all” for those who are acting in service to others).

Those in service to the self generally construe reality, truth, goodness, and fairness in one way (in a way that is centered on the self), while those in service to the other construe reality, truth, goodness, and fairness in yet another way (in a way that is centered on the other).

It should also be noted that the collective ascension process is being assisted and supported by souls for whom fourth, fifth, and/or sixth densities are already native to their consciousness, some of whom are thriving and … sadly … some of whom are fighting for their lives.

If none of this made much sense to you, not to worry; just know this for now: the uniform and hybrid souls presently incarnated as human on this planet are participating in a transitional process of consciousness to determine who is fit and who is not yet fit to live with a sense of fairness.

And when I say “fit to live with a sense of fairness”, the meaning I wish to convey here boggles the mind. From a fourth density point of view, I mean “fit to live with a sense of fairness that includes clear, open telepathic access to everyone else’s thoughts, feelings, and intentions.”

I invite you to take a moment to digest the staggering implications of this kind of inclusivity.

From this preamble onward, I will assume a service-to-other (STO) orientation.

Let us now turn to the second paired items on the list, which I reproduce here for ease of reference to help reinforce a sense of context with which to make sense of this listing as a whole …


third density     fourth density

via affirmativa     via negativa
yes this, yes that     not this, not that

mind and spirit     heart and soul
having and doing     being and knowing

emphasis on achievement     emphasis on attainment
relentless focus on outcomes     leisurely focus on ways and means

comfort with entitlement     comfort with abandonment
classical West     traditional East

In the West, many people place an unusual emphasis on realizing desired outcomes, sometimes at any cost, but more often in balance with all costs. In placing such a strong emphasis on achievement, people in the West are compelled, more often than not, whether they like it or not, to say “yes” ~ yes to this, yes to that. For many, this continuity of yes in the 1950s and 1960s was broken by the sexual revolution.

An influx of thought from the East began stirring up the West in the 1950s, gathering steam in the 1960s, until it broke ground in the late 1960s, flowering in 1969, during the summer of love. Ever since, the heart and soul of the West has been nourished by the wisdom of the East, even as a reciprocal exchange has been occurring, where the traditional East has been tapping, tuning, and tasting the best from the West.

Today, both East and West are grappling mightily with the monumental task of harmonizing fairness with goodness along two vital pathways of spiritual and practical wisdom: via negativa and via affirmativa.

Let’s briefly explore each of these pathways in turn.

Paradoxically, the pathway via negativa is open to receiving negativity without judging or indulging negativity. Via negativa also taps doubt for the sake of trust, negating by default impulses that do not, can not, or will not align with the heart and soul of being and knowing. Conversely, via affirmativa is open to receiving positivity while having no problem with judging or indulging the many faces of positivity.

Where via affirmativa holds sway in the minds of those who seek and find a sense of fairness inside a robust and rigorous sense of personal safety, satisfaction, and significance, via negativa holds sway in the hearts of those who find a sense of safety, satisfaction, and significance through a sense of fairness. Where VA yearns to take third density into fourth density, VN longs to bring fourth density into third density.

Both VA and VN are valid STO pathways for evolving and elevating consciousness as a whole. Both value goodness and fairness, for the self and the other, but in their own way and for their own reasons.

Where VA gives priority to goodness, VN gives priority to fairness. Where life feels meaningless without goodness for those who follow the path of VA, life feels meaningless without fairness for those who follow the path of VN. It is not until the soul realizes that life is meaning-less that VA and VN can be transcended to a place or a posture where meaning can be ascribed to any encounter, experience, or event in life.

If the world is a sad, bad, mad place, full of misfits, morons, and monstas, it’s because you ultimately choose to construe it as such, and if the world is one of blessings, full of peace, love, joy, bliss, grace, and ease, again, it’s because you ultimately choose to construe it as such.

In saying this, I do not wish for a moment to minimize or invalidate any reliance on goodness or fairness for meaning. Not everyone (hardly anyone) is ready to rise to the challenge of being sovereign.

*

The next paired items on the list offer insight into who follows which pathway.


third density     fourth density

via affirmativa     via negativa
yes this, yes that     not this, not that

mind and spirit     heart and soul
having and doing     being and knowing

emphasis on achievement     emphasis on attainment
relentless focus on outcomes     leisurely focus on ways and means

comfort with entitlement     comfort with abandonment
classical West     traditional East

Those souls who are preoccupied with the mind and spirit of having and doing tells me two things: (a) they need to work on tapping, tuning, and tasting a sense of fairness in their relations; and (b) they need to rely on having a sense of goodness to seek and find a sense of fairness.

Those souls who are preoccupied with the heart and soul of being and knowing tells me two things: (a) they need to work on tapping, tuning, and tasting a sense of goodness in their relations; and (b) they need to rely on having a sense of fairness to seek and find a sense of goodness.

I invite you to note the subtle differences here. As I mentioned earlier in this post, the ideal scenario in life and love is to be preoccupied neither with mind and spirit nor with heart and soul, neither with having and doing nor with being and knowing, neither with goodness nor with fairness.

Apophatically speaking, blisscipline, a blissful discipline, is a fruit of not being preoccupied.

*

Which brings us to the next paired set of items on the list:


third density     fourth density

via affirmativa     via negativa
yes this, yes that     not this, not that

mind and spirit     heart and soul
having and doing     being and knowing

emphasis on achievement     emphasis on attainment
relentless focus on outcomes     leisurely focus on ways and means

comfort with entitlement     comfort with abandonment
classical West     traditional East

How is it that anyone can experience blisscipline while also being focused on achievement (for those who give precedence to the third density experience of having and doing) or attainment (for those who give precedence to the fourth density experience of being and knowing)?

Now we’re getting to the crux of the matter, vis a vis the ongoing transition.

The answer to this $64,000 question (and here, I’m dating myself a bit) is so simple that I had to laugh in spite of myself. If blisscipline is a fruit, then the process that yields this fruit must be organic by nature.

Subjectively or collectively, any blissciplined focus on realizing desired outcomes is never so relentless that it excludes a focus on healthy ways and means, just as any blissciplining focus on ways and means is never so leisurely that it bypasses a focus on realizing desired outcomes.

For the sake of emphasis, let me break this down for ease of digestion …

subjectively or collectively, …

any blissciplined focus on realizing desired outcomes
is never so relentless that it excludes a focus on healthy ways and means,

just as … any blissiplining focus on ways and means
is never so leisurely that it bypasses a focus on realizing desired outcomes

Am I saying “do not be relentless”? No. Am I saying “do not be leisurely”? No.

The understanding to be gleaned here is never a simple matter of this or that (achievement or attainment?), but more a matter of this and that, and when I say this and that, I am speaking less of outcome (integration and recognition) and more to process (oscillation and orchestration).

In other words, the balance to be sought here is more dynamic than static.

We “raise our frequency” with a quickening of the frequency of oscillation.

Blisscipline is a fruit of conscious orchestration between being and becoming, owing to the oscillating nature of being and knowing interfacing with having and doing ~ but without the clinging, clutching, or compelling. In flow, blisscipline is more like a gerund: blissciplining.

At rest, blissciplining yields to blisscipline.

*

Which brings us to the final paired items in this listing …


third density     fourth density

via affirmativa     via negativa
yes this, yes that     not this, not that

mind and spirit     heart and soul
having and doing     being and knowing

emphasis on achievement     emphasis on attainment
relentless focus on outcomes     leisurely focus on ways and means

comfort with entitlement     comfort with abandonment
classical West     traditional East

I have written at length in previous posts on the positive and negative meanings of abandonment and entitlement in my explorations of what I have come to call the Cosmic Field of Play. For my purposes here, I wish merely to construe both abandonment and entitlement as positive.

Where abandonment is akin to knowing and having a blessed release from obsession or compulsion ~ “let go, let be, let God” ~ entitlement is akin to affirming this declaration: “I deserve to know and to have your trust and respect because I have acted in good faith to earn them.”

Where a comfort with abandonment implies having a love of fate with presence and gratitude (“amor fati”, to use Nietzsche’s expression), a comfort with entitlement implies having a love of destiny (carpe diem, to use a famous Latin expression) with charisma (presence, promise, power).

Where the traditional East has always favored abandonment for the simple reason that the traditional East has always found comfort in the notion of reincarnation beyond the flames of the funeral pyre, the classical West has always favored entitlement for the simple reason that the classical West has always found comfort in the notion of ultimate realization beyond the stark stillness of the graveyard.

Where the classical West arose as a crucible of care for the reincarnated souls of Atlantis to wrap up unfinished business where destiny is concerned, the traditional East arose as a crucible of care for the reincarnated souls of Lemuria to finish coming to terms with their fates.

Where those in the West are inclined to favor blisscipline for the sake of goodness in view of fairness, those in the East are inclined to favor blissciplining for the sake of fairness in view of goodness.

Here, I say “inclined” because some souls presently incarnated on this planet have never been beholden to either East or West, or, if at one time beholden, are no longer beholden to either.

*

By way of summary, let me get personal with you for a moment.

Regardless of whether you are reading this from the East or the West, let me ask you this: in which direction are you leaning? Goodness or fairness? Positive entitlement or positive abandonment?

Are you presently more inclined to seek and find an entitled sense of goodness (safety, satisfaction, and significance) in view of fairness? Or are you more inclined to know and feel an abandoned sense of fairness (a true loving that is fair to one and all) in view of goodness?

Are you presently coming from third density via affirmativa (yes to this, yes to that) in view of fourth density or are you coming from fourth density via negativa (not this, not that) in view of third density? Is your emphasis in life on achievement, with a focus on outcomes through the mind and spirit of having and doing? Or is your emphasis in life on attainment, with a focus on ways and means through the heart and soul of being and knowing? Is your comfort with the entitlement of fulfilling a destiny? Or is your comfort with the abandonment of realizing a fate?

Blissciplining for the sake of blisscipline? Or blisscipline through blissciplining?

Or maybe just maybe you are ready to juggle both sides of the equation …

subjectively or collectively, …

any blissciplined focus on realizing desired outcomes
is never so relentless that it excludes a focus on healthy ways and means,

just as … any blissciplining focus on ways and means
is never so leisurely that it bypasses a focus on realizing desired outcomes

This is the golden understanding that calls us toward blisscipline and blissciplining. As for best practices, this could very well be the subject of yet another post, but then, why wait for me?

What are you willing to have and do in response to the information explored in this post? Who are you willing to be and know in response to the inspiration expressed in this post?

Remember, … integrate to orchestrate; orchestrate to integrate …

Walking at your leisure with a sense of purpose against the cooling breeze under a warming sun, the fruit of blisscipline awaits; just be sure it’s ripe and juicy enough for you to eat at your leisure … with pleasure.
