The mystery of God and life
It is said that only through the union of opposites, or the conjunction of disparate streams, that one’s whole being becomes elevated to the profound intoxication of god-conscious rapture (hence the final stage of the alchemical process is defined as the 'mysterium coniunctionis', implying both mystery and joining); therefore this experience requires the union of the yin and yang, the self and the Self, and the separated mysteries with the One. And so there exists within our most overwhelming experiences- our numinous ecstasies- the marriage of our spirit and soul, of our cognitive and feeling functions, and of our male and female elements, by which our divided selves are made whole again.
The world is like a mirror- in it we see who we are. The problem lies, though, in paying too much attention to the outer image rather than the living, inner event which exists prior to the image, which is within us, and independent of the image, and so the image is really dead. The trick is to see the mirror, but to 'feel' the living, imageless event which comes before it- which you are.
You are LIFE- you are the closest you can come to life, so you needn't seek elsewhere. Thus the 'narrow gate' is you, and that is what 'leadeth to life'. To pursue the conceptualized, outward manifestation, the unknowable 'mirror' of life, is to run after your own unliving shadow.
To open up instead, to live each day without expectation of what life will grant us the moment we open our eyes, or step out our door, is to release life and allow it to show us its overflowing abundance.
What we become, it becomes. What we know, it knows. What we see it sees. There is no division.
Thus it is of extreme importance to empty the mind of all conditioned ideas and past thoughts- because the empty mind is the conduit of the God-mind; God can only see clearly, when we remove the filter of misunderstandings within us. For, as has already been said- God, the mystery, lies within.
