Blog: A Message from Jach, August 12, 2014

It Seems to Me ...

"The key to getting there, to shifting the paradigm so the world destined to be new, can be new: Chaos, Paradox, Complexity, and Enchantment." -Lazaris

Here's what I have been thinking about in the midst of the current almost overwhelming points of chaos, crises, atrocities of violence, and human tragedies: Polarization, now too common in the politics in the United States, seems to have spread to become a global issue.

Polarization: Republican-Democrat; Sunni-Shiite; Palestinian-Israeli; Syrian-Rebel; Iranian-Insurgent; Russian-Ukrainian ... are there more? Probably. I have been looking at this for awhile trying to understand what's going on. What's happening with all this polarization and why is it happening now?

Along with this, I notice that Lazaris has been talking a great deal about the between — the energy of the between, the power of the between, entering the "between" of worlds. Years ago he touched on the Liminal, which is the between of things, but of late his message has been much more present and it's about the between, in the workshop in the Lake District (Gathering Treasures from the "Between" of the Worlds), in the Tuscany workshop which also focused upon the between, and the latest message from Lazaris describes a meditation to slip into the between of worlds to work our magic.

Rather than only looking at the opposing positions, I have begun looking between the various polarizations. This is what has come to me: It seems to me that the world is shouting at us, and our Higher Selves and Souls are shouting. I don't know if God/Goddess/All That Is ever really shouts, but if Goddess does, Goddess is shouting at us, too. There seems to be a persistent message. I hear it almost like the beating of drums: Work with the between; go into the between; work in the between.

Oh, another call to the between: The two hurricanes approaching Hawaii ... two hurricanes and there is Hawaii between. Beating drums. A rhythmic percussion. The message feels very clear to me: The power is in the between. Our power to work our magic, our power to change reality in accordance and compliance with our will, lies in the between. For me, a true OMG moment!

Lazaris has talked of the emerging new world, a world now destined to be. As he has talked of it, he has also talked of the role of chaos, essential to change, and of the emergence of a new paradigm. He's pointed out that a new world and a shifting paradigm move and work together from creation to manifestation.

I understand that we are in the midst of a world becoming new. We are also in the midst of a paradigm becoming new, aren't we? I don't think of that too often, but it's there.

For me, here's the kicker. During a One-Day Workshop in 2012, Lazaris said of all this: "The key to getting there, to shifting the paradigm so the world destined to be new, can be new: Chaos, Paradox, Complexity, and Enchantment."

What's going on in the world? What is happening in so many places and what's the why of it all? It seems to me that we are in the midst of the chaos and paradox phase. The polarization magnifies the opposites and the contradictions. The polarization freezes us when we are attached to or lost in only one side of the contradiction or when we focus on only one or the other position of the polarity. I have come to realize that I cannot settle for the either/or of paradox and contradiction. I need to find the between - the Between!

I am focusing my magic on "the people in the between" of these various polarized expressions of paradox. I am focusing on the middle class in the United States, and the people living in the Ukraine, in the Gaza Strip, and the people in Syria and Iraq. I am focusing on the people being ripped apart by competing ideologies and their ideologues. It is there that I work my magic.

What else did Lazaris say?

"The Power of Paradox is to allow the opposites to complement each other rather than contradict each other."

This is difficult for me, and I don't have the answers that satisfy me yet, but that's not stopping me. How do the polarized Republicans and Democrats complement each other? I am not sure, but it seems to me they share passion, a vision of empowerment, a vision of freedom. The forms are in opposition, but what of the function?

How do the Sunni and Shiite complement each other? I don't know enough to be precise, but it seems to me each is seeking dignity and freedom.

And of the others? It seems to me that each of these polarized groups, each of these contradictory and paradoxical positions have something universal in common: each is seeking to change reality in accordance and compliance with their will.

What's in the between of each of these paradoxes and contradictions? Magic!

Lazaris also said:

"Complexity is the integration of autonomous parts. Complexity is separate and indivisible ... Chaos is a complexity, a complexity is a paradox. There is power in Paradox. There is power in Complexity."

There is power in complexity. And with complexity we can lift to a higher octave. We can lift and our world can lift to a higher octave. The world, to become new, lifts to a higher octave.

I continue to ponder and savor. I continue to think and feel. While I do that, I am working my magic in the between of worlds — in the between of my personal world and in the between of the chaos, paradox, and complexity in the world. I am looking for the complementary elements of the chaoses, paradoxes, and complexities that seem almost overwhelming at this point. I am looking for the enchantment.

For example, I go into meditation and I face the contradiction. I face the proponents of each side of a polarized position. Without judgement I face them and work to understand each position. I work to comprehend, interpret, discern, and assess each side. I then work with inference and with appreciating and valuing each side. I work to hold, not the either/or, but the both. And then I move my consciousness in between — into the between of the paradox that the polarization represented. In the between, I draw in the energy that is common to both sides. I draw in the desire to change reality in accordance ... I draw in the magic that each side is seeking. I let go of the form and focus on the function: magic. I draw in their determination, resolve, passion, and whatever else is common to each. I then turn to the people who are caught in the between, and I draw upon their desires. With all that energy, there is a unique resonance. In that resonance I work my magic. I do my techniques to dream and vision it in accordance and in compliance with my will, my imagination, and in accordance and compliance with my love. Then I flow the energy — the energy with a new resonance, a resonance touched and changed by my magic — I flow that energy into the people, into the people caught in the between.

This is what I have been thinking about and doing of late. I want to share it with you.

Coming Home: The First Step

Saturday, December 19, 2015
Blog: Coming Home: The First Step

By Lazaris

An excerpt from the Personal Growth Recording Coming Home by Lazaris.

All right. All right. Once again it is a pleasure and a joy to have this chance to work with you. The words … pleasure, joy … seem too small to hold and too short to reach the fullness of the pleasure and joy it always is to explore and to work with you.

This day we talk of Coming Home, two words that also seem too small and too short. The very words bring tingles and goose bumps to some and bring tears to the eyes of others. They stir the hearts and minds of all of you. These words, at first blush seeming so simple and so mundane, stir the mysterious and the mystical; they stir the beautiful and the wondrous. These words touch something so deep in you that you cannot seem to touch back – not yet. Coming Home.

Coming Home catches your breath and creates a poignant pause that suspends the moment, making it eternal – making it enchanted, treasured, precious, and special. In that suspended and eternal moment, your spiritual yearning can be made new; your spiritual quest can be made more whole. Both yearning and quest can become rich, vibrant, and vital. Coming Home … in that moment, you can become transcendent. You can transcend.

Somewhere amid the journey, somewhere within the dance, you can discover and unfold what Coming Home is for you. Perhaps you will begin finding what it means in a symbolic way. These two words can be as a hieroglyph or icon. Meditatively, pondering the words themselves, you can "double-click" to open a window of awareness and understanding of you and your spirituality.

Maybe what you seek can be found in the metaphoric meaning and significance found embedded in the words and within the idea. You can find the meaning and significance held in the lifetimes – past, parallel, and future – that make up your fabric of being. Against the backdrop of such lifetimes, you may well find an already-existing realness.

Beyond the embedded meaning in metaphor, some will find the reverie of Coming Home in the metaphorical meaning and significance you give – that you consciously create and manifest by choice in the words and in the idea of Coming Home. Beyond the existing realness, you can consciously give realness.

The richer value of Coming Home lies beyond awareness and understanding; it lies beyond meaning and significance. Please do not misunderstand us: There is value in awareness and understanding, obviously so. Likewise, there is value in meaning and significance.

And then there is a different kind of value. Whereas most value is found in the thing, there is also value that isbeyond the thing. There is also value – a unique and phenomenally powerful value – that lies beyond. It is a value beyond content and context – beyond form. It is a value that can be found in the function – in the engagement, in the embrace, and in the activity of Coming Home.

Somewhere amid the journey and within the magical dance, you can awaken:

Powers, strengths, and talents both old and new with a raw and sheer force that you can harness with design and direction to more fully achieve and fulfill your destiny.

Mystical choice that can be a keystone to all creation and manifestation, a cornerstone to all success, happiness, and joy, and that is seminal to all change. Mystical choice that surpasses and supersedes itself to engage the Truer Self and to re-direct the entropy of the evolution of chance and necessity to the spirituality of the evolution of choice and reflection.

Within the liminal, naked without the encumbrance and entanglements of the Ego-I, you can expose yourself to your vulnerability. You can expose yourself to your weaknesses so that you can change and heal them and so that you can become strong. You can also expose yourself to your strengths, powers, and talents so that you can grow and evolve, becoming freer and more loving. You can become wise.

Miracles that allow you to reach beyond fixing it and curing it to changing and healing it with love.

Motivation: A reason to begin again. A reason to cast off your masks and disguises, to set down your shields and weaponry; a reason to take a stand and to stand tall upon your commitment with visions and dreams. A reason to become the giant that you truly are.

The journey that ended was a journey of Going Home. It was a journey of separation and of forgetting. In your forgetting, it became a journey of fear and of pain: It became a journey of violence, pain, crises, and loneliness. It became a journey of fear and sorrow. As you woke up, that journey of Going Home became a journey of struggle and suffering – "no pain, no gain."

Then it became a journey beyond struggle; it became a journey of love, light, laughter, and celebration. Many called you a fool; some still do. Your journey sought beauty, love, enchantment, and solitude. Yet the journey was still one of Going Home.

Now everything is different, and you have come to the end of that long journey. You are no longer Going Home. You are now Coming Home.

Coming Home. It is like a grand attractor that compels more than it propels, that draws more than it drives. It calls you, and you can respond. It changes every part of you, and you change if you will respond.

In the depth of Coming Home you can discover so many wonders. You can discover the luminous, the numinous, the liminal, and the responsible.

The luminous is that "something more" that defies description. It is the Light within you. You have felt it; you have been astounded and amazed by it. It is the illumination that is the endless mystery of you. In the depth of Coming Home, you can be filled and overflowing with light and love. You can be filled and overflowing with the light and love of God/Goddess/All That Is and of the Goddess, and you can be changed by that very light and love. You can be changed forever.

The numinous … another word for the divinity in you. Though it is premature to say that you are God or Goddess, it is also eternally true that within you there is a "piece of God and of Goddess." Within you lies a divinity. We would suggest that it seems solidly sleeping, stirring and rustling, or waking up more and more, but within you there is a divinity. Deep within the dance called Coming Home, you can be filled and outpouring with the ineffable and the divine beauty and wonder of God/Goddess/All That Is and of the Goddess. You can be radiant with beauty and wonder that can instantly and spontaneously engage and embrace you and as instantly and spontaneously change and grow you.

The liminal is the threshold; it is the gateway to the energy of "between". It is that mysterious between space-time; it is that mystical pause. The liminal is a state between transmutation, transformation, and transcendence. Additionally, the liminal is a state of unity between duality and oneness. We suggest that it is a state of unity and equity without hierarchy and a state of sacred vulnerability. It is holy.

The liminal is also a state of being where you, separate from the Ego-I, can discover the Self-I. There in that mysterious between and in that mystical pause, you can encounter the Self-I who is a blending of the masculine and feminine in you, who is the blended woman and man that you are, regardless of your gender. You can engage the Self-I who knows the equity of the "Faces of Self" with integrity and character and who is the mature self with an elegant rapport with the more real you.

Within the liminal, naked without the encumbrance and entanglements of the Ego-I, you can expose yourself to your vulnerability. You can expose yourself to your weaknesses so that you can change and heal them and so that you can become strong. You can also expose yourself to your strengths, powers, and talents so that you can grow and evolve, becoming freer and more loving. You can become wise.

The responsible means more than the obvious ability to respond. It means "to return to your promise." Within the dance of Coming Home … within its depths … you can find the courage and the confidence to return to the promise you made to God and to the Goddess. So long ago when, by your free will, you separated from God/Goddess/All That Is in pursuit of who you were, you promised that you would return. You promised that you would return to God and that you would return to Goddess.

You separated, we would suggest, and began your journey Going Home. Now you have rounded the bend, and you are upon the journey Coming Home. It is time to return to that promise made "so long ago." It is time to return to your promise of Coming Home.

The beauty: You are waking up now. However conscious or yet to become conscious you are, you are on your way Home. Seek the luminous, numinous, liminal, and the responsible in you, and you will find your way. We love you.

With love and peace,

Lazaris
