|THE LOVE IN HONITI|
For a while Gurudasa’s path became the new Codex. Because they were trained in reciting Yoxa began reciting Gurudasa’s path, the Glowing Path:- |
But Gurudasa had known Yoxa would recite, this was the Dogmaton conditioning. But by the time of her death Yoxa were questioning. They were questioning ego so hopefully they would begin to understand why they were addicted to ego, they would begin to understand why they were addicted to conditioning, and then they would begin to question why the path is beyond. And if they question path and see that path is Gaia, then there might be hope that Yoxa minds would not enslave themselves again as they did with the Pagans and Dogmatons.
Under the Dogmatons there had been much education on Codex, path and their meditation. To begin with the Great Enquiry had closed down these homes of conditioning, but now they were reopened to study Gurudasa. For the Dogmatons these universities were concerned with fear and conditioning, but now they were concerned with Gurudasa, the path and what she had written in her book.
But they had no teachers. The existing teachers were all trained in the Dogmaton era. The young had no wisdom only questioning. The Yoxa turned to the old for they had been instrumental in opening up the minds of the Yoxa. But whilst there was much wisdom there they did not understand the path.
The creatives now had their path, and for most of them it was the doing that mattered. They began to seek teachers and they followed Gurudasa’s journey. When young she had sought refuge in monasteries, how much did this influence her in her understanding in what she wrote in her book? These people were invited and some came.
But the Yoxa struggled, what was the path? They could understand ego, they could understand conditioning. But what was the path, what was beyond? Why was it Gaia? They wanted to follow Gurtudasa’s path but they had no idea what it was they had to follow.
Amongst them was Eckhartus, and he became significant in the Love movement. He spoke about the path of love:-
Whilst Eckhartus became inspirational for the Love movement much that Eckhartus had to say left the Yoxa confused, left them with more questions. Eckhartus would just laugh “Question as part of genuine enquiry is good,” he laughed.
Whilst they were still struggling with path all Yoxa thought they had some kind of understanding of love. Suddenly the Great Enquiry had found a direction, and it became the Love movement. They would say “All you need is love”.
But enquiry was still there, what is this love that we all need? They began to seek this dissolution of one from the other. They began to see that love was in their being, this was the love they needed.
Gradually the Glowing Path, the Great Enquiry, the pathtivism began to settle down as Yoxa society stabilised. A significant turning point began innocuously with the Eckhartus seminar entitled “Is love for pathtivism?”
Of course with the Great Enquiry there had been much discussion about path, love, being – everything under the sun. Although people were trying to follow Gurudasa’s “Future is pathtivism” it was proving difficult. Enquiry after enquiry was leading to frustration. Ego was limited, Yoga questioned conditioning ad nauseum, but there was discontent as there was no resolution. For may Yoxa desire for the path was not producing the necessary following of the path. There was still a high level of frustration but this time the frustration was not questioning for questioning’ sake as in the Great Enquiry but frustration at not finding the path. People were beginning to feel like Dogmatons, I’m following Gurudasa’s path more than you, but they knew this comparison was ego and they dropped it as soon as it came up.
But there was still frustration, where was Gurudasa’s path?
Eckhartus gave the keynote speech at the seminar:-
“Love is the path, being is the path, love is being. This is an answer to Gurudasa’s path, but we have been so caught up in questioning that we do not know how to use the answer. The problem is the perpetual questioning is keeping our answers on the surface, and we have not internalised them. Gurudasa talked about these, and …. He began to list page references that supported his claim. And this lost most of the audience. This was now same old, same old, and most drifted off.
He concluded. “It is time we stopped seeing questioning as answer, the answers are the answers. The answer is the path, and I am suggesting “love is on that path.” This seminar is now going to divide up, and different groups will consider the practical questions such as “how do we change our society to recognise that love is on the path?”
“Over there you will see the screens, on each screen you will see different strategy groups – I have just mentioned strategy 2. If that is your choice go to screen 2, key in your seminar number, and you will receive the necessary instructions.
“But before we do that we will meditate,” he announced. They assumed the posture as they had been trained by the Dogmatons. “Love is the path, being is the path, love is being. Start by accepting this. Hold these words in your mind “Love is the path, being is the path, love is being.” Now forget the words, there are no words. Look for love. Look for love inside you. Words will come back, let them go. You are not looking for words, you are looking for love. I want you to find love and feel it. Not making love, not the love you have for your partner, find love. If images of your partner come up let them fall away. You are not looking for a loving relationship, you are looking for love. If your mind thinks of something to do with love, let those thoughts fall away. What you want to do is feel the love inside you, feel your being that is love. Stop those thoughts, feel love.”
There was silence. After a while Eckhartus continued “Feel that love deep inside you. Feel it welling up. Feel it welling up deep inside your body, deep inside. It is expanding, this love is expanding. Feel it expand, floating out of the top of your head. Follow this love. See your neighbour’s love floating above and touch it with your love. They fuse. Your combined love touches other loves in the room, and then we have one big love together. Enjoy this huge love …. together.” He felt the room, was it going well? There was stillness, a good sign, then there was fidgeting …. too much. The gentle ringing wakened the people from their fused love.
And there was quiet, a release, people were looking round – getting their bearings. Slowly their consciousness returned to the present presence, and Eckhartus rang the bell again. Their attention turned. “That is love, not questioning. Go to your seminar groups and find ways of allowing Yoxa society to love, to be love.”
The people were still only half there but buzzing they wandered off to the screens to see what was on offer.
That seemed to go well, thought Eckhartus, let’s hope the groups are productive.
Then there was the plenary, and the report backs were given to tech support. It was Arigon’s turn.
He stood up and on the main screen the plenary saw the following bullet points:-
• Love has always been. • Dogmaton times made love worse. • Love in the home is essential for progress. • Love must be Yoxa emphasis. • Develop support networks to help those whose love is frustrated – unrequited. • Train counsellors to help people love. “Even in Pagan times people loved,” she began “but it was more a respite. Life was hard for these wage-slaves, and so any love was an escape. But their love was manipulated into consumer units, and instead of being a respite it became a problem as they had intended money difficulties.
“In the Dogmaton era it was worse. Love was repressed as they had to follow the Codex. Being correct was such a restriction Yoxa could not relax and love. It was not that the correctness itself restricted love but that the compulsion prevented loving expression. And even that possible loving correctness was lost over time as minds became more constricted to the Codex. In that era it was almost as if love was only intercourse as social respite, how can that have been?
“Now look at point 3), please,” Arigon continued. “This is our essential point. Love has to be developed generationally to help society progress. The home needs to begin with genuine love, and we have to help people recognise what genuine love is. Love is not passion, the romantic endings of the old movies, love is so much more. This love needs fostering in the home. If a home has difficulty and as a result the child is not loving then this is another generation of damaged Yoxa, Yoxa damaged because they cannot be in love.
“Emphasis needs to be placed on the home, how can we help people love in the home?
“Then if there is not love in the home, something that can so easily happen, then there needs to be support networks that can help people in their homes. Meeting places, advice centres, trained love counsellors,” Arigon concluded.
There was polite applause for Arigon, little did they know what Arigon described could have been a blueprint for the way Yoxa society developed.
With the embracing of the Love movement the turbulent question of the path began to lose sway on the Yoxa. Gurudasa’s path basically became the path of love because love in some way was something all yoxa could relate to. Love as society’s way of life is pretty close to the path, many ole people would muse.
But for a distinct few they understood that the path could be much more. But things were looking good compared to history. The exploitation by the Pasur was a distant past. Imposed correction had been replaced by public enquiry, and this had led eventually to a society founded on genuine love. There was no room for complacency but things could have been much worse.
But Gaia was never complacent. Now that ego had been relegated to the past Gaia hoped to end all forms of addiction, and there were good people working on this. For some love had become compassion not love for one but love for all. With the focus on love in the family there was far less suffering, and the compassionate were freed to explore further.
These compassionate began to learn more and more of conditioning. Under the Pasur and Dogmatons conditioning had been designed to further their particular power grabs, but conditioning had far more dimensions than social control. Not attaching to any conditioning became the aspiration of wise minds, and they were rewarded with the joy of increased compassion and bliss. But they were there to take an overview and protect as the battle against ego was continuous.
Gaia rewards. For Honiti and Lina their love blossomed through the Cotla but for most of their lives remained only in those meetings. Sadly Naica’s bitterness turned in on herself soon after the children left home. When she was more lucid Honiti became a target but he fulfilled his duty and nursed Naica until her death, her dying words were “I’m sorry and thank you.”
As Gerald grew older his body became weaker quickly – he had pushed himself too much. Unable to fulfil his social duties his mind turned to compassion, and one day he decided to take orders. He cried when he told Lina that he was going to the monastery, it was Gaia's drive he had to go, he told her.
The day he released her she went straight to the Cotla where Honiti spent more and more time. They walked, and in a discrete place she whispered to him “Kiss me’. They hugged but now there were no restrictions. The frustrated passions were so strong it was not fulfilling but the physical love-making joined them together for the rest of their lives. Together they retrained as counsellors – giving back to the Cotla that allowed them to live a fulfilling life …. in love.
