'Swedenborg, Aquarius, & the Soul'

Just as the Earth welcomes the embrace of the Sun, Moon, and other celestial bodies, our physical body also receives various energies from different sources. These energies converge in our hearts like two triangles, representing the spiritual forces that descend from above and the forces that rise from the Earth. 

It's said that within our heart temple resides the divine master of our being - the Soul. This individualized cosmic entity is with us from the moment we are born. It is like a beacon of light that illuminates our path and guides us towards our destiny.

Regarding this, a famous citation, that of Emanuel Swedenborg, comes to mind: 

“The inner master-self is as distinct from the outer self as heaven is from earth… for heaven is within us, the heaven within us is our acknowledgment of the Divine and our being led by the Divine.”

We may wonder what it can be, in Swedenborg’s words, that can exert such a natural power upon the human heart. The Law of One would appear to be operating here, our present age being perhaps the suitable period for this knowledge to be generally known. Like many others of his time, Swedenborg taught that everything on Earth corresponds to a spiritual reality, that the human is a map of the universe, and that everything in nature has some correspondence to something pertaining to the human being. 

In his writings, particularly in 'Arcana Cœlestia 1749,' Swedenborg discusses the ‘heart,’ which corresponds to the celestial heaven, the part of heaven closest to the Divinity. It probably does not surprise you that his contemporaries did not receive Swedenborg’s revelations well. Being tightly linked to his sun sign, Aquarius, Swedenborg continued his revelations and stayed entirely loyal to his Soul’s calling. 

I heartily recommend exploring him further, but for now, let’s shift our vision away from this glorified misfit and carry on with the concept of the SoulAs you may know, the Soul means movement and is related to the flow of life. When we are aware of our Soul, we are also, beautifully so, aware of the Soul of another, not in a cosmic sense, but in a terrestrial, present sense.

The Wheel of the Soul turns secretly. We may not see it, but we can feel it, impulsing every movement from moment to moment, reshaping us, and molding us into our true existence. Owing to its nature, each Soul runs on its own momentum and constantly searches for complementary energies to create a harmonious network. Our recognition of this Holy Presence inspires us to continue to trust life and signs found on the way and realize that all events, circumstances, persons, and things ultimately have a higher purpose.

And so, you may ask, how can one be in communion with the Soul? In answer to the “how?” I am bound to reply in short: settle peacefully into your system, feel the warmth and radiance of your essence, and humbly bow down to its magnificence.

To tell you straightforwardly, dear reader, this practice is not an invention of my own. It’s not me who says this; it’s our ancient sages. I am simply bringing forward a suggestion that can be applied and put into a concrete form. You are in this body, here and now. It is time for us to bliss in and not bliss out. Blissing-in now and now in surrender to the Soul. In surrender to the Earth and in surrender to the humble things of the Earth.
