Jesus said: When you give rise to that which is within you, what you have will save you. If you do not give rise to it, what you do not have will destroy you. —The Gospel of Thomas

I WANT TO RETURN to a passage from my previous post which I excerpted from Walter Russell’s THE UNIVERSAL ONE: “When the potentials of the opposites are too far removed from equality, then will union cease.” In this statement the converse is implied: When the potentials of the opposites are equal, then union is possible and compelling. I will endeavor to develop this further in this post. For context, I will excerpt some of the larger consideration in which this statement occurs:
Every action is male. Every reaction is female. Every action is electro-positive. Every reaction is electro-negative. Every action has its equal and opposite reaction.
Every action and every reaction is a tone in an octave of the universal constant of energy. Equal and opposite reactions, when united, comprise a unit of an octave of the universal constant of energy.
An action and its opposite reaction are not two. Their energies, when combined, make one. Reaction is born of action; and action is born out of reaction. All idea, and all forms of idea are the result of union between equal or unequal opposite actions and reactions of force.
Perfection of mating lies in the union of exactly equal and opposite male actions and female reactions. In perfection of union lies stability.
Imperfection of mating lies in the union of unequal and opposite male actions and female reactions. In imperfection of union lies instability.
Unequal actions and reactions will unite with unwillingness which increases in proportion to their degree of departure from exact equality in opposition.
When the potentials of the opposites are too far removed from equality, then will union cease. . . .
That which is true of chemical unions is true of all species of organic life.
Now, all of the above is about chemistry and organic life. There is another and higher level of life experience which we’ve come to call the spiritual life, and which I prefer to describe as the life of the spirit. This life is the life of angels incarnate in the realm of creation. We have our mates, but rarely do we incarnate together. As mates, we partner in manifesting the qualities of Heaven in our expression and co-creative activities on Earth.
The incarnate angelic spirits we are can live creatively in loving and fruitful relationships without being limited by so-called “human incompatibilities.” Angels love one another unconditionally, human foibles notwithstanding . . . and when we angels use our human hearts and capacities to express our love for one another and for our world, they are purified and sanctified in the fire of love. They also tend to enjoy health and happiness. The potential of positive preponderance for both men and women is thusly brought into a sustainable state of equality and balance, for Spirit is the Source of our power. We may at times give our power away or have it taken from us, but no one can take away our Source of power within, our God-given capacity to express the power of love.
When the potentials of the opposites are equal, then union is possible and sustainable.
To deepen this consideration, I would like to revisit a section of a blog post of November, 2018, Masculine-Feminine Energy, Part IV, making some revisions and adaptations for this consideration.
Energy Must Flow
Energy wants and needs to flow in order to create forms, illusions though they are said to be. Masculine and Feminine forces interacting with one another make possible the flow of creating energy. The creating energy that flows through their interactions is the creative power of Love manifesting the Ideas in the Mind of the Creator.
When I speak of masculine and feminine, I do not equate these words with male and female, nor with men and women. As we know, these energies are at work in both men and women. The feminine energy is by design, and hormonal chemistry, more dominant in women, and the masculine energy more dominant in men. This is not always the case, but is generally so. The ideal would seem to be a balance between these two creative forces in both men and women — something that I have personally worked at in myself over the past two or three decades.
These two forces are not attracted toward one another in the same manner as is commonly thought. As Walter Russell elucidates, masculine energy spirals centripetally (inwardly) toward its apex, or vortex center, and is thus contractive and magnetic. Contrarily, feminine energy spirals centrifugally (outwardly) away from its apex and is thus expansive and radiative. One inhales while the other exhales in order to restart the inhaling cycle. As the positive masculine force winds inwardly toward its maximum potential charge, it discharges energy via a feminine emoting phase of expansion, much like a spring winding and unwinding. So, there is a continuum here at work, demonstrated in this graphic:
Russell’s primary point is a correction to the current scientific misunderstanding of the law of attraction. The way he sees this law working is a positive charge of lower potential is attracted to a positive charge of greater potential, and that a negative charge repels both positive and negative charges.
MALE AND FEMALE ATTRACTION
Males and females of the same species couple by reason of the law of attraction: positive attracts positive. This is contrary to the current misunderstanding that positive attracts negative, or that the negative female is attracted to the positive male; that men radiate (positive) and women respond (negative) to men; that women are therefore the “weaker” sex and men the “stronger;” that women are to be obedient and subservient to men. All these thwarted concepts and attitudes are the result of a fundamental misunderstanding and therefore misapplication of the law of attraction, not to mention mental fabrications of the patriarchal and dominating male of the species.
Men are attracted to women and women to men by reason of their positive charge. A lower potential seeks a higher potential and a higher potential attracts a lower. This is the law or attraction at work, whether between members of the opposite or the same sex. These raw energies are no respecter of persons, hormonal chemistry taken into consideration — and genitalia not withstanding. Genitals are male and female in their design and function for procreation. Energy is masculine and feminine in its function and it needs to flow between these two forces. As someone simply voiced in a recent conversation around the subject of LGBT, the chemistry allows the energy to flow, and that’s a large part of what relationships are all about, isn’t it.
Masculine energy is the magnetic force of this universe of integrating matter, which increases in density as pressure and positive charge increases. Feminine energy is radiative and is the repellant, or separative, force of this universe of disintegrating matter. Where they meet in what Russell calls the “inertial” plane, these forces come into a state of balance, which he designates as a “bi-sexual” zone.
AS ABOVE SO BELOW. AS BELOW SO ABOVE
How things work in the “physical” world of effects mirrors exactly how things work in the “spiritual” or vibrational realm of cause. In the world we have created, what happens on earth is an exact mirror of what is happening in the heaven of human consciousness. As above so below. Because of human interference and manipulation, the harmony and beauty in the Heaven of Divine Consciousness are not reflected in the world that man has created and maintains. Where man has not manipulated the design for the Natural World, such harmony, beauty and balance are evident. We might say that Divine Masculine and Divine Feminine forces work together in perfect balance and harmony in the pristine world of Nature. This is not accurately reflected in our world where historically males lord it over females — a dynamic that is rapidly changing these days with the “rise of the feminine” currently underway.
Consider what is happening today in Iran, as well as in the United States, where theocracies and authoritative autocracies impose their controls over women. These forced fundamentalist and so-called “Christian morals” are not being tolerated by the youth in Iran nor by the women in America. The call-out for change is unquenchable, and the feminine energy being discharged and given rise to cannot be put back under containment or suppression. It will destroy the structure enforcing the power and control of the oppressive male over women.
BRAMA AND SHIVA—PARTNERS IN CREATION
The Masculine gathers the energy of the expelled and exhaustive Feminine force unto itself to empower his creativity. He contracts light energy into integrating form. He is Brahma, the Creator, in Hindu religious tradition, which holds to the belief that the universe is cyclically created and destroyed.
The Feminine discharges the built-up potential of the Masculine in order to disintegrate structured form. She is Shiva, the destroyer, in Hindu religion. She destroys form in order to re-create new form. In this sense, she sees to it that the Creative Process continues to cycle. She does not settle for what the Masculine has created as “permanent” reality, but rather clears the creative field in order for new creations to come into being — sometimes in a fitful outburst of wrathful anger. So, she gives her responsive but charged energy to Brahma so as to foster the ongoing process of creation. Then there’s Vishnu whose role it is to maintain and preserve Brahma’s creations. Vishnu is the second Hindu deity who is both male and female. Perhaps he/she is who Man is designed and intended to be as Steward of the Garden and partners in creation.
THE “BATTLE OF THE SEXES”
These two forces are integrated in the Natural World and are beginning to be allowed to integrate more and more in human beings. The so called “battle of the sexes” describes the creative dynamic at play between these two forces in the Creating Universe. As I said above, Masculine and Feminine forces are raw energies that are no respecter of persons or gender. In the hands of the self-centered human ego, they are being used to enslave women and men and destroy life on Earth, all to enrich the few who endeavor to maintain power and control over the masses. Not for much longer, however.
A third force is needed in order to bridle in these raw forces. Left to their own, they take on the false identities of human nature, dividing men and women in a competitive struggle for power and control over life and the illusory world they create, including their offspring, played out in the legal battle for custody in divorce courts. So long as one force dominates, imbalance and imposition of one will over the other will continue to sow the seeds of conflict and war. So, a third force is needed . . . and is rising today . . . to harness and balance these two forces.
THE “LAW OF THREE”
Here is where Gurdjieff’s “Law of Three” comes into play, which states that when three forces come together, a fourth and totally different state is born of them. That third force is the Truth of Love. Spirit. A spiritual force that originates from a higher level than that at which men and women presently conduct their waring affairs on the horizontal two-dimensional plane. The vertical component of Love transforms and levels the playing field, so-to-speak — the field that the poet Rumi speaks of: “Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing there is a field. I’ll meet you there. When the soul lies down in that grass the world is too full to talk about.” That field is the Consciousness of the New Heaven. When we meet in that field, a fourth and totally different state in possible: the New Earth.
This Spirit brings with it seven other spirits, or gifts, that are designed to help us meet the various needs and conditions that present themselves along life’s creating journey. The late spiritual teacher Lloyd A. Meeker (Uranda) presented them as “Seven Steps to the Temple of Light.” There’s Patience, the first step toward enlightenment. Tranquility and single mindedness, the second step. The gift of Blessing is the third step. Can you imagine men and women being a blessing to one another, co-creators instead of competitors? A fourth gift is Purification, the detoxification of our words and feelings toward one another; our selfish intentions and motivations, not to mention our lack of respect for one another. In a word, purification of our hearts: “Blessed are the pure of heart for they shall see God”. . . in one another.
The expression and application of these four gifts of Spirit bring about the assurance and confidence of authenticity, along with the fifth step of Radiance, and with it the joy of success and victory. The sixth gift of Spirit is Wisdom, Sophia, whose gift is the sense of what is fitting in our speech and actions with one another. At this level of creativity, Masculine and Feminine forces are brought into balance. Peace is known at a deep heart level, bringing with it the experience of oneness with the All, Love, the seventh gift of Spirit. Enlightenment dawns. These are the qualities and gifts of our Being, our true and divine Self.
In conclusion, I will simply reiterate what I have stated above. Our true identity is not as men and women. Our true identity is as Human Beings. I am not only a man. I am a human being in a male form with both masculine and feminine creative energies at my command for creative work on Earth. My origin and Home is Heaven. I have come here from Heaven, as we all have, to bring Love into the world and to let the New Earth descend from out of the New Heaven. Let us be about our divine mission and purpose together as Human Beings, God incarnate and in action on Earth. In a word, as partners in creation.
I welcome any thoughts and inspirations. Until my next post,
Be love. Be loved.
