As the process of Divinity has unfolded, it’s become clear there is a third element in play. Alertness and Liveliness have been discussed as the core elements of Divinity that give rise to consciousness and thus all experience and form. But just as the dynamics of consciousness unfold the process of experience itself, so too does Divinity reveal a third element.
The best word I could come up with is intelligence. In consciousness, this is the devata value, that which structures form and phenomena, and the sense of unfolding experience we call time. In the second stage of Divinity it is the profound networking of self-knowing sutras of Shakti.
As usual, this was obvious once it “landed.”
Much as with the chakras (as above, so below), I expect this structure of alertness, intelligence, and liveliness to be mirrored in the upper stages. In The Power and The Glory, we saw alertness as a key factor in the first stage of ParaBrahman, the profound self-networking of Shakti’s in the 2nd, and the liveliness / power in the third. The heart and fulcrum expresses them together, then the 5th will express liveliness again in a higher way, the 6th intelligence, and the 7th alertness.
The Seven Stages are holding up but I’ll be updating the words a bit in time.
