On this site, I emphasize those two aspects of unfolding enlightenment called sattva and atman, clarity and consciousness. It was a prominent theme in my SAND talk. However, from the Ayurvedic source of this, there is Shadbhava – 6 houses.
Half are the 3 aspects we bring into this life from our prior development: Sattva, Atman and Rasa. Rasa means flavour or essence and relates to the style of body we’ll get.
The other half is the blood line. Father, Mother, and nutrition during pregnancy. This means our blood line is also a big player in our growth. It has a major bearing on the body and early life we’ll experience.
This points to a key aspect of our spiritual growth – we’re not just purifying our past but our families as well. This is our obligation – they gave us this vehicle.
The blood line and soul’s history are not mutually exclusive. We’re often born with people we have history with, shifting roles. Parent becomes child becomes cousin. This helps everyone balance things out and resolve the incomplete baggage.
I’ve seen several ways clearing the family line is described, but it is said that full enlightenment blesses the family both backwards and forward for 7 generations. That can give you some sense of the clearing taking place. We’re not in this alone. This is also why many traditions east and west send a child to follow a spiritual path. The families’ pillar and obligation.
