As we’ve been rising out of a dark age, we’re also rising out of a time of constrained spirituality. Spirituality became divorced from the world and separated from the dominant world-view, science. Science came to dismiss the degraded spirituality as myth, while spirituality demonized the world along with success, wealth, and desire.
As spirituality is being revived, it’s coming through the filter of masculine dominance. There is a raw focus on Shiva, pure consciousness, the detached observer, and the intellect. While there is great benefit in these values, they’re not complete or balanced.
We’ve left out the Divine feminine, the heart, the creatrix. It’s true the appearance of the world in an illusion but only because we’re missing its true nature. It’s an appearance of the power of Divinity. It’s reality is founded in profound intelligence and intention, deeper than consciousness.
There is no Shiva without Shakti. Alertness sleeps without being stirred awake by liveliness. Consciousness is inert and lifeless without Shakti, the flow of life itself.
We are bathed in the flow of Divinity yet how many spiritual adepts recognize this?
Part of our purpose in life is to discover our deeper nature and recognize we are consciousness, the observer, underlying all forms and phenomena. But to stay there is to sit in duality with an illusion. Deeper is to make the Divine feminine conscious. To wake up our body, to wake up the forms and phenomena, to wake up the world.
Wake up to the world, as the world, then the world itself.
This is fullness.
