Divide and rule is a strategy principle used by an opposite force, furthermore while waging war.
Any kind of war.
Inside or outside our physical bodies.
Inside or outside our psychic house.
It’s purpose is to gain or maintain dominion by breaking up larger concentrations of power into pieces that individually have less power than the one implementing the strategy.
Wasn’t that why a fallen angel failed ( when trying to work ) against the light force represented by an angelic realm with failed efforts of concealing shadow with fake light?
Let’s meditate with mindfulness:
Who am I?
What do I want during this life?
What is my calling or life purpose?
To whom am I grateful?
Unfortunately there is reactivity everywhere.
Outside our lives
concealed by projecting self flaws into our neighbors.
Minding others business before fixing our imperfections.
Darkness is necessary into our lives, otherwise we wouldn’t be able to appreciate light.
Taoism quotes about it, establish an interdependency between Yin and Yan.
The scriptures have made it clear providing a karmic navigation map of day vs night/illumination vs shadow/ good vs evil.
Take note because we arrived from divine light and take it for granted.
Why do we keep ourselves nurturing the greatest illusion on this world…?
Is the light supposed to come back by itself after a vacation period?
I don’t think so my friends.
There is a little shadow work required to be embraced for that Sun to rise back into our paths.
Tonight there is a Penumbra Lunar Eclipse
Eclipses bring the unexpected, forcing us into action.
There is always fear to the unexpected. Change can be a good thing.
Procrastination is part of the human condition.
We avoid what’s painful because is easier to stay in our comfort zones.
That’s why we occasionally need a little cosmic kick in the pants to push us off the fence and into action.
Eclipses bring change.
They fall four to six times a year and turn things upside-down.
In our disoriented state, we may act out of character or see turbulence in the world.
Eclipses can also help break patterns and shift dynamics.
However, astronomy and astrology experts, suggest waiting a week or so before taking drastic action, allowing the eclipse energy to settle first.
Keep in mind that we are energy, life force.
Lunar Eclipses give us a glimpse into what Carl Jung referred to as the “shadow self.”
Refer to my article “The Shadow into the Psychic House” on this blog.
Dr. Jung (Swiss psychiatrist) the father of Psychotherapy, a former kundalini yoga practitioner, and encourager of rehabilitation & resilience left a legacy of knowledge within the mental health field.
What we discover about ourselves and others during Lunar Eclipses can be tough to swallow, even shocking.
Still, this gives us the opportunity to embrace our wholeness, and see where we have room to grow in new directions.
Owning the fact that we have emotions like fear, anger, jealousy and rage is the way to get a handle on them.
When the Sun, Earth and Moon all align almost one-behind-another, a prenumbral lunar eclipse occurs.
As the Earth blocks the Sun, sunlight fails to illuminate the Moon’s surface properly. Isn’t this a manifestation of divide and conquer strategy?
In this instance, stargazers will notice a slight shadow cast over the surface of the full Moon, which is known as the penumbra.
All this sounds amazing, if we read between the Universe lines, that adjustments are required around us and even into our personal lives sometimes.
Meditation is recommended, go into silence e inner quest for the self, alining our persona, ego, shadow.
persona- what we project to others ( our core) in other words earth
ego- our behavior undergoing flight & fight based on perceptions, past traumas & concealed fears in other words the sun
the shadow- erupts as an overpowering rage or some indiscretion that slips past us through different forms of manifestation such as depression or any other mental downfalls.
If the human being, cannot find the right tools for learning how to develop balance into the darkness and light, sets an easier environment within for the Shadow to become stronger than the light.
