Divining the self
As we move through the human condition, we are in the process of learning to divine the structure of our self and understand it’s relationship to our manifestation. There are many systems which present this in a variety of ways, all of which do the same thing, which is to interpret the structure of self from a variety of angles.
All Divination is into the substance of the impressions of the Akasha as they manifest through the World Tree, the golem of our current self, or Character in the Great Story. Whether we are inquiring about the unfolding circumstances of our life or the more seemingly local structure of our biology, it is always the self that we are investigating.
There are many systems of divination. Ways of discerning the circumstances of our health, our wholeness, and our life in general. While they vary from culture to culture, the basic principle is the same – we are discovering the patterns that are healthy or unhealthy in our lives.
For example, Iridology uses the eyes to determine the state of the organs. Reflexology uses the feet. Systems which relate circumstance to the chakras use that system. Ayurveda, the doshas. Chinese medicine, the five elements.
Like all aspects of the mortal condition, these are impermanent, culturally dependent forms. Yet underlying them the action is always the same – we are divining the pattern, the prime imprint that is our current self, our current circumstance. We are examining our own reflection in a variety of mirrors.
In this context, what we are looking at are any number of maps … ways of divination. Whether we associate that divination with the tongue, with the feet, the eyes, the chakras, or whatever … ultimately we are talking about a singular thing .. the prime pattern of our Life, our prism of Self, which in turn relates to our Life Purpose, or dharma, and the halo of our circumstance.
Astrologies, Human Designs, Tarot – Everything is Divination of the Self
Let us expand on this concept, and look at the pattern of the self from another angle. Just as looking at a biological model, esoteric models exist that divine the elements of the self.
Many systems exist to do this, ranging across many cultures, traditions and other impermanences.
A classic example of this would be the wheel of western astrology, which divines the self into four quadrants of elements over the course of a year, related to the movement of the cosmos of which we are a part.
Another example would be the tarot deck, where cards are used to divine the impressions that lay within the substance of a particular being. This idea of divination applies across the board, manifesting through any number of systems that appear different on the surface, yet serve the same function – to investigate and perceive the deeper impressions of the Akasha as they express through our human form in the material plane.
Still another would be the currently popular human design system.
While all of these systems are valid forms of divination, ultimately, what matters most is the understanding that no matter our point of entry, all aspects of our experience reflect our current conditions.
This is the Law of Reflection at work. The understanding that all parts of the fractal of our existence reflect the whole, whether seen in our individual condition or collective.
All aspects of the self reflect the whole. Whether we use an esoteric or biological model or anything in-between, all parts of our experience reflect the whole. Such is the nature of the halo of our reflection, seen in the physical form.
Your life-circumstance is a mirror of your inner landscape.
Now let us expand on this concept. When we understand that our human Selves are a matrix of consciousness and that there is no separation between us and our environment, we come to see that the circumstances of our lives are equally as valid in the diagnosis of the conditions of our qualities of current self.
This is difficult to perceive, yet like all systems of divination, the fractal of our current condition reflects to us from all aspects of our experience.
There is no separation between what is ‘within’ and what is ‘without’
