B Y  D A N I E L   J A C O B
THERE ARE MANY AWAKENING SOULS within the Metaphysical Community who are languishing in the intensity of the current vibratory frequency of our Planet. We are all moving towards a place that is situated, quite literally, between Heaven and Earth. Those among us who originated on Earth are needing to be quickened - revved up, so we can attain the exalted position that awaits us. Those who originated off-planet, who are now taking on human form, must continually find ways to scale back our energy - so we don't blow out light fixtures, or fry the delicate sensibilities of those who long to get close to our radiant energetic core.

Eventually, we shall all be ONE - both in purpose and in substance. Though now we see each other dimly, as reflections, seen in a mirror, someday we shall see all things clearly and straight on. This dance that is occurring, between the worlds, and between the "mortals" and "immortals" is our very own Wedding Feast of the Ages.

Concerning the intersection of Spirituality and Sex, the Apostle Paul (sometimes known as Master Hilarion) had plenty to say. One of his primary statements is found in his letter to the Galatians, where he states: "Walk in the Spirit and ye shall not fulfill the lust of the Flesh. For the Flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the Flesh; and these are contrary, the one to the other: so that you cannot do the things that you would. But if you walk in the Spirit, ye are not under the Law."

 
The belief in this contradiction (Spirit vs. Flesh) is an earmark of a Separation Mindset - a by-product of distorted human intellect. Remember the curse, which was meant to forever lock us out of the Garden? "In the day that you eat the fruit of that tree, ye shall surely die." And so it is, that those who dare position themselves between these opposing forces (Spirit and Flesh) tend to suffer greatly, and some actually do die. Herein, I believe, is the energetic origin of a gradually intensifying development of Sexually Transmitted Diseases, which are born of unbridled desire, seeking to transcend inbred guilt, shame, hesitancy, and intrinsic self-doubt.
 
"But ye shall NOT surely die," said the Serpent unto the woman (Eve, in the Old Testament of the Bible). "For in the day that ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil."
There are many who equate the eating of that "forbidden fruit" with the loss of innocence that comes when a person becomes sexually active. To "know" each other (sexually) is to breach the barrier that separates one soul from another. In women, it is symbolized by a breaking of the hymen, almost always accompanied by the shedding of blood. An extremely potent symbolism, which is found to be part of many, many religious traditions. In men, there is an awakening of desire and need for sublime connection that vacillates between agony and ecstasy--depending upon whether supply matches one's immediate demand!

THE GATES OF HEAVEN AND HELL
The legend telling us that our entry way back into the Garden is blocked and guarded by Cherubim (infant Angels), wielding flaming swords, is proof positive that the Reconnections' instruction - concerning the search for our own Magical Child Essence - is right on time! Some of these insights were laid out early in this series. The reader can check the archives for review, if necessary. But really, humanity has only just begun to scratch the surface for comprehending the importance of our Children of the New Earth, serving as guides back into this blissful inner knowledge and beauty. More will be shared about that in time, though we are currently having a nice go at it, in my other series called "A Child-Friendly Society."

It was channeled once, from a very wise entity that: "You must learn to follow your spirit without hesitation. Otherwise you will end up following your hesitation without spirit."

There is no area of life where this dictum has more relevance than the intersection of Spirit and Sex. And, even though our society is loaded with "thou shalt nots," in regards to the administration of one's sexual energy, there is sometimes an even greater "sin" incurred if one misses out on an exciting opportunity - spending the rest of his or her days wondering "what would have happened if..." And so it is. To be or not to be? To dance or not to dance? The Gates of Heaven (and Hell) do swing both ways.

As I am writing this article, I am thinking of a wonderful TV Mini-Series, which was produced from Colleen McCullough's award-winning novel "The Thorn Birds." It starred Richard Chamberlain, as a double-minded and tortured Catholic Priest/Bishop/Cardinal who falls in love, early in life, with a young girl (played in adulthood by Rachel Ward) who totally captured his heart, though he never fully gives in to her until his dying moment.

The story is an omnibus experience of so many themes that are being covered in "Spirituality and Sex," that I heartily recommend it to anyone who has not yet partaken. Eating the "forbidden fruit," and "cheating God," as the script so deliciously illustrates, is ultimately an impossibility. And the deep interaction and clash between Mother and Daughter on that issue (Jean Simmons plays the mother) is poignant and wise. The story ends with Father Ralph telling Meggie (his lady love) the story of the Thorn Birds, just before his own death.

The whole business takes us right back to an ultimate intersection between fear and faith, where Eve chooses to heed first the admonition of that serpent, rather than the warnings of the Lord. And she tastes of the fruit, and is awakened. And she leads her man to do likewise. The ultimate surrender of Father Ralph, in The Thorn Birds, to Meggie's charms - resulting in a son (Dane) - creates a whole new redemption turn on eating the forbidden fruit. Yes, there is pain and death. But there is also at-one-ment that is found, through the marriage of passion and dedication to God. As another character in the story points out: "There are times when one cannot truly be a priest until he can also allow himself to first be a man."

SERPENTINE FIRE
The activations which are now coming upon the Earth Plane are manifold and intense. Although the traditional interpretation of the serpent's role in the Garden of Eden tale is simplistically cast off as "evil," many of the Bible's internal analogies do not bear this out.

The symbolism of the snake involves both genders. It is phallic in its imagery, symbolizing the masculine force that exists in all of us. It bites and infuses us with power and purpose, which is its seminal nature. In South America, the Shamans actually allow themselves to be stung by scorpions, just prior to going into ceremony or trance. The venom increases their spiritual power, or so they say.

In the Goddess Religions, especially in the Temples of Isis, the snake was a powerful symbol of the Divine Feminine Power, often worn as an adornment for a headdress or crown.

It now seems useful to introduce the idea of Kundalini Fire, or the awakening of primal energy, as it relates to a personís spiritual journey. The Kundalini is all about snakes, and it is all about power, which moves through the lower part of the body as "Earth Energy." It is a manifestation of the primal self, the instinctual self, which can connect best with the elements: the tides, the wind, animal energy, soil, and the rhythm of life.

The human body is meant to be a channel for this energy. When Kundalini is awakened, it originates at the base of the spine (or the ovaries in a woman), and moves its way up the central channel (also called the "sushumna"). As the energy rises, it encounters parts of human personality on its way through the chakras, or energy centers of the body.

In a sense, each of us is a fragment of the total Planetary Soul as it reaches towards the sky. The process of reaching, or "rising," is not without its perils or its fears. We reach for the heavens, but we also shrink back at what we may find. As we will find later in this series, the sky is also reaching for us as well. Many of the tales of "unidentified flying objects" are as old as antiquity, itself. Hidden beneath the Vatican are Renaissance Paintings with flying saucers in them. It is widely believed that a good deal of "ET" lore is built upon the "Sky Gods" who are seeking to make contact with us, even as we long to make contact with them.

The symbolism of "Government Cover-ups," regarding the presence and purpose of Extraterrestrial Intelligence, or other tasty material, applies directly to the "cover-up" that is going on within each person's mind and heart - concerning what he will let in, and what he filters out.

As the Reconnections so aptly put it: "The determination of what is a matter of perception rather than existence. Everything exists, but not everything is perceived." In many ways, our desire to filter out supernormal perception and knowledge can often be matched by our desire to stop that flow of Kundalini Fire, as it seeks to move up the spinal canal. And so, as it passes through our Second Chakra, there is an excitation to stimulate and ejaculate our power into a sexual partner, who helps aim it back into the Earth (rather than reaching up to the sky) or produces a physical child, with whom we spend time acting out the missing connections to our own Magical Child.

The balance between determination and hesitancy sets a "tone" in the life of each person. Each of us exists as a crystallization of matter which portrays the tug-o-war between many pairs of opposing forces. For example: FEAR AND FAITH. Some of us embody complete courage and almost foolhardy bravado. Others represent the other end of the spectrum, rarely leaving home for fear that something awful may happen to us. Most of us, however, exist somewhere in between, which is that place of MERGING, which humanity is exploring at this time.

From the moment the body begins to move on its own, the muscular and nervous system begin to compensate for this conflict between curiosity and fear. A child begins to run with complete trust and abandon. He reaches for everything, and nearly drives his parents crazy! However, there are those times when his reaching produces painful results instead of pleasant ones. Perhaps his hand inadvertently touches a flame, or maybe a careless turn causes him to take a nasty tumble that breaks an arm or bruises a leg. We can certainly see how all of this plays out in the relationship and sexual arenas also, can we not?

When a child encounters difficulty as a result of his exploration, he can learn to respond in a number of ways. Certainly, he can choose to shrink back and never explore again. Many people have learned to become very passive in response to some trauma they suffered in early childhood. On the other hand, resistance or hardship encountered in his exploration can make a child become very *determined* as well. Like a caterpillar pushing its way out of a cocoon, many children learn to become tenacious about getting what they want and doing whatever they desire, no matter what the consequences!

I will end this segment with a quote from one of the "Spirituality and Sex" transmissions, which nicely sums up what we're discussing at this point. I welcome your questions and feedback.

A RETURN TO THE GARDEN
The mythical symbolism of the Garden of Eden, with all its beauty and splendor, carries with it an image of innocent children, playing happily in the presence of a loving Father/Mother God who dotes upon their every move, their every exploration. Once a parent lets go of any "stuff" that he or she carries, about certain acts or attitudes, an energy of beauty and grace begins to fill all of creation. And, even though certain Gods have been called "Almighty," "Omni-benevolent" or "Omnipresent," there has always been an underlying message given that they do not put up with certain things, while other actions or attitudes are quite desirable. This representation can only be a projection from a Fragmented 3D Humanity, onto the face of the Holy One. The need for these ideas will soon pass away, as humanity begins to integrate what it is truly like to be WHOLLY One.

Each new "generation" becomes a fresh opportunity to re-discover beauty, diversity, and the symmetry of Life in Form. We can ride the "ups" and we can slide back with them in the "downs." We can go anywhere and be anything we wish. This pleases Us greatly, as all sides of each equation begin to merge into ONE. This is the grandest journey of all.

MORE TO COME.
