I really felt I had tapped into something here, for the Eclipse is a hole in the dome, so to speak, a black hole of pure potentiality. We follow the path to see the Hole in the Dome where we can see beyond, imagine beyond, experience beyond the duality of conscious and unconscious, sun and moon, right and wrong…all the duality that keeps us entranced, that keeps us trapped in the ping pong game of the Two that has lost the One…we have lost the One…the Eclipse…but we long for it..and we recognize it when we see it.
American life is a life of reenactment. Football for instance, is our pilgrimage to our Mecca where the titan battle to be the One….but this is external in form, not inside but outside, so we have football and the clash of opposite reenacted every year, as if for the first time.
American life is trapped in history because we have lost the One…the One America, the Transcendent eclipse, the Hole in the Dome where all things are possible. When trapped in the dome of duality, only what you expect is possible, only the reenactment is possible, the Ground Hog Day. There is no infinite possibility when we have lost the Eclipse. All that exist is the routine boring day into night, night into day ad infinitum….the 9 to 5 drudgery of sameness…we have lost the wonder of the eclipse when all things are possible..and we can create ourselves again…when the old sun dies and the new sun is born…the king is dead, long life the kind.
The Hole in the Dome, the Eclipse in the dome of the sky, is actually the eclipse in side us, where we give up the dual fight, we give up the game of the sun and the moon, and watch in wonder, in a question, in not knowing…we give up the known and the past, and surrender to the wonder of this mystery of life…and that is the Hole in the Dome, the conduit into your potential opens up and new energy flows in, new insight is born, meaning grans you and you know what to do with heart and not just mind, for mind is always trapped in duality. Only the heart can eclipse the Mind…and allow. your life to be born again.
My friend who came here this afternoon to share his pilgrimage to the Eclipse in SC was still high, and I got high connecting dots…the energy poured through the Hole in the Dome in m mind, in the duality between my persona and the world, between me and the world, and I’m still riding that energy…or maybe it’s the martini.
This Eclipse has legs…it is making me high, and the martini has worn off. I keep having different views, different angles on the eclipse as metaphor…it give me energy..expanding potential..and that is what the eclipse is..the hole in One for you golfers..the moment the duality becomes One..AH…the totality.
When we are lost in the game of duality, we chase the Hole in One in the future, but we never attain it, and if we do it only lasts for two minutes. We are looking for the eclipse in the wrong place, we are looking for the hole in the dome in the wrong dome. The dome is not outside but inside. The dome is our own mind caught in the game of light chasing night, consciousness chasing unconsciousness…Me chasing my Shadow…like the Sun chasing its opposite side, which is night where the Goddess reigns. The Sun God is always chasing the Moon Goddess…and she runs just slightly ahead of him, teasing him, allergen him, but always out of reach, never giving her all….until the Eclipse!
They go round and round the bed of the earth until finically She allows Him to catch her. Ah…
But this is also the dance, the chase of our own mind that yearns to be One, that yearns for the Totality that is always just out of reach. What to do?
We have to see how the mind operates. The mind is a dual operating system, just like a computer OS. We have to see the whole apple, not the two halves separately. We have to see the whole all at once, and that is the eclipse when the sun and moon are One. The dome is our mind. The Hole in the Dome is the Seeing of the game…The Game is UP! I see the whole play. No longer am I fooled by the magic tricks, no longer am I fooled by the ruse…the game is up.
I wake up!
