Impermanence – Twilight nature of Time; Dissolution of Polarity into Emptiness;
“The Wild Death /Life Mother – A “Baba Yaga” moment”
Journal Entry: 19 March 2020
” It feels like I’m standing on the sharp point of a sword – the sharp point of a single moment – a moment in our collective history where all time is coalesing and collapsing in one single collective breath. There is at the same time a deep surge of creative energy coming forth – blasting forth from the old world of the past that is dying. Nothing, nothing will ever be the same again. It is as if all the work, processes, initiations, tests, frustrations and struggles collapse in the expansion of this one precious empty moment.
“Pinpoint of time at the center of Eternity”
This single moment shrouded in the twilight mists of time begs the single question – what will I create now? We are all at that point now – where the big questions need to be asked. This is a chance to start again – if we could grasp its abundant potentiality beyond our personal preferences and comforting illusions. It may look chaotic on the outside but as souls on the path of evolution – this is a benevolent moment – extremely supportive to the evolutionary processes that we agreed to birth into the world. If we can see beyond our narrow vision and embrace the story from a larger evolutionary perspective then this is “the moment” – a gift – a revelation – an answer to a prayer.”
And so support is at hand in the form of the Wild Mother – she who destroys and she who gives life. She who is ever present to take us from all that makes us sleepy and initiate us into a new way – a way of magic, of miracles, a way of Love.
“Baba Yaga, the Wild Mother, is just such a teacher we can consult in these matters. She instructs the ordering of the house of the soul. She imbues an alternate order to the ego, one where magic can happen, joy can be done, appetite is intact, things are accomplished with gusto. Baba Yaga is the model for being true to the Self. She teaches both death and renewal.”
So the questions linger:
Am I willing to allow the Wild Death/Life Mother to have her way with me?
Am I willing to allow my Primordial Feminine Nature to reach out from the deep caverns of my inner spaces and shatter the patriarchal illusions to free me from an insiduous enslavement to a dying identity?
Am I willing to live into this turning point and to throw out all the concepts I have collected – especially the spiritual ones, and to sit in the raw nakedness of my vulnerability and to know that this is the only way that the Divine can be birthed through me into the world to create anew?
Am I willing….?
These are the questions we need to ask now – it is an opportunity if we can see it that way – a precious opportunity to begin again – not for us but for the future and for the past which stand waiting for us to make our choices – on that pinpoint of time suspended in eternity. May we make that choice “Now”
