The premise of spirituality is that all of creation is a synergetic dance. Its’ ebb and flow drives perpetual exchange. Every giver is simultaneously receiving, and every receiver is simultaneously giving. While one process is achieved overtly, the other remains shrouded in mystique. Spirituality is the discipline for pulling back the curtain of mystery in ways that restore the architecture of the balance into realization.
Spiritualists see receiving in a very different way than the common man. They see receiving as a playing a constructive role in amplifying the underlying unity. When receiving, they focus their heart’s intention to dedicate the act in ways that spiritually affirm respective roles contributing to interconnectedness. This honouring of the respective roles that together imbue diversity with a realized spirit of the “whole”. This spiritual recipe for wholeness can be called “harmony”, “balance”, “beauty”; but most fundamentally for our times, “peace”.
For our world to achieve a lasting peace there needs to be an internal appreciation of the sacred roles respective parties contribute towards setting conditions for authentic expression and meaningful achievement. This appreciation, prepares conditions for authentic exchange and cross-polinization that bridges the honour of nations, peoples and cultures. It is an appreciation that creates the space for greater communion and spiritual interdependence. It affirms the trust that cultivates transformation through the mutual surrender involved in growing into becoming part of something so much more.
This should seem familiar, as this is also the nature of true love. A love that is not vulnerable can never be true love, as it lacks the very soul of reciprocal trust. Love requires a mutual surrender, a levelling of the definitions of selfhood to evoke the greater spirit with the transcendent. This is why lasting relationships require for each partner to honour the spirit of what the other is extending. It is only in this way that each will continue to inspire growth within each other. They become more than a romantic pairing, but rather help-mates for cultivating a spirit that is greater than each of their respective intrinsic assets. This involves a dedication to realization. The realized honour and trust secures the conditions for mutual vulnerability that summons the greater spirit of the whole.
