At this highest 3rd chakra level we have the culmination of what it is to be a self-actualized human being on this planet of duality. In various traditions, we call this Enlightenment. In the Christian tradition, we call it Salvation.
Do not confuse the experience of Salvation with the experience of, “Being Saved.” This, more often than not, arises from a longing to belong to the group (1st chakra level) rather than because of a direct revelation of At-One-Ment (7th chakra).
I was raised in Northern Ireland and I have met enough people who have ardently declared, “I am saved.” I only ever met one man who I felt had been graced this revelatory experience. He picked me up while hitchhiking home from Belfast to Armagh.
We had such a heartfelt conversation (communion) that he took me all the way home even though he wasn’t going to Armagh.
When I look back on that conversation, I recognize how much he longed to share what he really knew but that others could not comprehend. Like myself, the number of those who have ears to hear is all too few. This longing to speak that Sweet Moon Language can leave you feeling lonely.
I hope this does not sound arrogant although it can sound that way. I share this invitation from a direct experience of Grace. I am not enlightened, but I have lived there for a time. This is also to say that I have lived outside of Time. This is the KNOWING of Eternal Life.
To use an Irish mythological term, it is that I have lived in the Land of Tír na nÓg. This is the Land of the Forever Young. There is not much I can say about this experience of Union/Yoga because words cannot ever say what it is truly like.
Mystics and mystic poets are the only people who can point you toward the magical and transformational blessing of finally coming home to the place that you can never leave and in reality, have never left.
The Road Home (by Rumi, Trans. by Coleman Barks)
An ant hurries along a threshing floor with its wheat grain,
moving between huge stacks
of wheat, not knowing the abundance all around. It thinks its
one grain is all there is to
love. So we choose a tiny seed to be devoted to. This body,
one path or one teacher. Look
wider and farther. The essence of every human being can see,
and what that essence-eye takes
in, the being becomes. Saturn. Solomon! The ocean pours
through a jar, and you might say it
swims inside the fish! This mystery gives peace to your
longing and makes the road home home.
Your coming home is, metaphorically speaking, the realization of Heaven on Earth. It is the return to the Garden of Eden.
Only this time it is different. You have processed the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil that is ego development. Now you eat of the fruit of the other tree which is the Tree of Life.
Do not take this garden metaphor literally. You are created to KNOW that you are the Garden.
