Trinity: Cycles, Synthesis, Birth, Sustainability, Transformation, Sovereignty, Freedom, Awakening
The whole Universe cycles between the three principles of Creation/Birth, Sustenance/Preservation and Transformation/Dissolution. These triangular cycles are repeated throughout Nature, in our Physical Bodies and in the quality of our thoughts and emotions. This “apparently” chaotic dance exists throughout our bodies and our psychological nature.
In Tantric teaching the womb of the Sacred Mother is called Hiranyagarba – the Golden Cosmic Womb – it is from this womb that we are born and it is into this womb that we die. This womb is present within our bodies as a mirror/microcosm of the grandeur of the Cosmos. It is also inclusive of Nature in all Her magnificent diversity – dancing Essence into Form and Form into Essence.
Triangular Forces within our Bodies
In our Patriarchal modern world we are deeply disconnected from these cycles which is the fundamental blueprint of all Nature. We are rooted in survival and this results in clinging to that which we believe is indispensable to our survival. We have forgotten the True Source – the very Ground of our Being as resting deeply within this Cosmic Womb and have projected our Eternal Nature outside of ourselves. We have become co-dependent on the environment rather than rooted in our Omnipresent Eternal Nature residing deeply within our physical bodies.
We especially resist cycles of Transformation – these cycles represent Death and Change – of which the conditioned ego mind is deeply fearful. When we start the journey back to Her – who is the Essence of our Being – we encounter these triangular forces with increasing regularity. We are asked to become deeply aware of its play in our life. When the longing for our Eternal Nature becomes unbearable – we are willing to Trust and Surrender to the Cyclic Nature of the Mother within and not fear the journey into the Unknown. This is Her way and we Surrender into it….it is the way to Freedom and to Unity with all of Life from which we are never truly separated.
Mother of Transformation
“All form must end, departing through a portal into the darkness, so that new forms may emerge from the crucible of clear space. But what is emerging in the womb of Now is not knowable ahead of time, and is not subject to our hopes, fears, or fantasies of control. While the mind will struggle with the wrathful nature of this truth, the heart knows … the body knows.
See that the death of form is filled with erupting particles of life, with magic, and with the fragrance of the holy. You can relax into the very center of the death-rebirth journey, and rest inside the core of the contradictions. Here, the chaos and the glory are one.
There is nothing more alive than that.
There is nothing more sacred than that.
There is nothing safer than that.” Matt Licata
Many of us Long for Home and yet are deeply afraid of what will be required of us….the sacrifice of our false identities, our treasured beliefs, the attachments we may have to surrender as we journey on this path. The following poem by Rumi speaks of this journey home and the love and support we have as we walk the path of the razor’s edge….
LOVE’S HORSE WILL CARRY YOU HOME
“The whole world could be choked with thorns
A Lover’s heart will stay a rose garden.
The wheel of heaven could wind to a halt
The world of Lover’s will go on turning.
Even if every being grew sad, a Lover’s soul
Will still stay fresh, vibrant, light.
Are all the candles out? Hand them to a Lover –
A Lover shoots out a hundred thousand fires.
A Lover may be solitary, but he is never alone:
For companion he has always the Inner Beloved.
The drunkenness of Lover’s comes from the soul,
And Love’s companion stays hidden in secret.
Love cannot be deceived by a hundred promises;
It knows how innumerable the ploys of seducers are.
Wherever you find a Lover on a bed of pain
You find the Beloved right by his bedside.
Mount the stallion of Love and do not fear the path-
Love’s stallion knows the way exactly.
With one leap, Love’s horse will carry you Home
However black with obstacles the way may be.” (Rumi)
