The balance between light and dark. The day is equal to the night. In less than a couple of hours the sun will be centered over the earth’s equator creating perfect mid-line balance. I had a vision today of myself on a trapeze flying through the air, swinging from one extreme to the other. I do that. Usually, I am fluctuating back and forth from my doubts over to faith and optimism with glimpses of Truth beyond my understanding, rarely pausing for long anywhere in the middle.
About a year ago I read a very enlightening book, The Gene Keys: Unlocking the Higher Purpose Hidden in Your DNA, by Richard Rudd. As part of the book you have the opportunity to go to www.genekeysgoldenpath.com and get your own personal Hologenetic Profile. This unique set of “keys” unlock the mystery of your “path”. My path starts with my Life Work of gene key 63. In the shadow aspect this key shows up as Doubt. I often feel the pull of my logical brain, bringing me back to the dark places of doubt. Doubt of others, doubt of myself, doubt of the Universe. But when I can let that go and push my trapeze out into the vast middle space toward the unknown I find the Gift of this key: Inquiry. “Inquiry is about remaining open without finding a definitive answer to life”. The more a person can inquire more deeply and openly, the more apt one is to uncover something more complex, something new and something that will push one forward to a new level of understanding. And when I let the momentum of my trapeze swing from Doubt on through Inquiry to take me to the highest vibration of this key I reach the Siddhi of Truth. Yet, somehow in the great paradox that is the human condition, the Truth is found within the Doubt and my surrender to it.
So, tonight as we move through the transition from Winter into Spring, as the Sun is ever so momentarily balanced over our equator, I surrender to my doubts (Dark) and then I push off into the unknown territory of further questioning and inquiry, reaching for more truth (and Light). Balance in nature is not stationary, it is an allowing of movements back and forth sometimes big, sometimes small, always moving, only momentarily in the center points or on the extremes. I let go of my extremes with faith, I do not hold on. I also do not get stuck hanging in the middle. I swing knowing that I will swing closer to the Truth with the momentum of joy and with the acceptance and trust that wherever I am in the arc of my flight, it is just exactly where I am supposed to be. Striving for Balance. Yin and Yang. Light and Dark. Equi~Nox.
En~joy the Swing into Spring!
