“There is a way of passing away from the personal, a dying that makes one plural.”
~ Rumi ~
Mutuality = cosmic law
No creation can take place unless mutuality exists ~
New forms of self expression can only come into being when Self merges with something beyond itself.
Mutuality is a movement, one that bridges the gap between duality and unity, thus eliminates separation.
Creative inspiration is a way mind extends beyond itself. The next step is execution (labor, effort, perseverance & self discipline); a synthesis of creation, imagination & ideas in harmony while performing, accomplishing. Creative energies flow freely, spontaneously into manifestation; an effortless influx, combined with the determined ego will. The Self is emotionally & spiritutally open to the creative channels, while using imagination.
In human relationships, this harmonious interplay of spontaneous, effortless experience is what brings people together initially, in unison with the whole Universe: mutual interplay between effortless creative imagination & execution. For mutuality to operate properly there has to be a reciprocal movement toward another attitude, aspect or person. Two expansive movements flowing out toward one another in a harmonious interplay of giving and receiving, two ‘yes’ currents moving toward each other.
Mutuality depends on the two entities’ ability to accept, bear and sustain. Which depends on the person’s integration & wholeness. (ability to say yes, when yes is offered.)
People can be put in three categories:
Those still in their fear, of opening & expanding, holding back energy, feelings and vital forces…though the longing is always present, incapable of responding ~ contenting the Self with the pseudo-security of separate & aloneness.
Strong longing will lead the Self to believe that the longing indicates their readiness for real mutuality, which is not true, and failure in relationships will prove it so. Pain & confusion will eventually lead the Self to a full commitment to recognize the real inner source of this fluctuation.
Open to mutuality & fulfillment, to interplay and expansion, to cooperation & positive pleasure. Relinquishing the negative pleasure & pseudo-safety. Here the soul becomes ready to learn, experiment, risk mutuality, love, pleasure, and to function safely in an open state.
Mutuality can only exist if the Self is fully aware (conscious) of the dark & light forces within, mending the rift between them; creating mutuality inside Self. (between all aspects of the Self). Ignoring the darkness inside, strips Self of vital original creative energy. Coming in contact with the darker side of Self will enable transformation. The only way to be a full and whole person is to accept all vital forces within, because our disunity within disables us from unity without… so, to accept in your heart of hearts all that makes up the Self, is to become whole.
Using our reactions to others as indicators, we can discover what we do to our Self; harm and inflict by the negation of the unacceptable. In order to approach any relationship with another, one must first come into relation with the Self, in a mutual manner. Only then can we extend the Self to others.
All the separateness, that appears so real in our realm, is an illusion in higher conscious thinking. Denial of this truth, will lead to failure in relation to others. One consciousness permeates the Universe and everything therein. Experience this unity ~ open to the flow without contracting, let the energy from one penetrate the energy field of the other, and vice versa, creating a constant interflow & exchange. This is a healthy alternation of the expanding, contracting and static principals, where we find Self in the eternal rhythm, in harmony with the Universe.
Accept your Self exactly as you are now, and extend that acceptance to others. The harmony derived from the balanced Self will stabilize the relation.
