Simply the thing that I am shall make me live

William Shakespeare

The deeper perfection that is inherent in life itself is a perfection that is always there: it lies beyond what is happening or not happening, beyond form. When we become aware of our sense of Beingness, that which is formless consciousness, we find the perfection that is deeper than any form and untouched by time.

Coral is a tertiary colour combining primary red (grounding) and secondary orange (healing the timeline). By healing the trauma of the past, our genetic past and the far distant past, we are able to go beyond polarity, beyond duality and understand the paradox of life. We are able to go to a new level of self-acceptance and an awareness of inner space.

'With awareness and acceptance, an alchemical transformation to active compassion and love-wisdom can occur.' The Aura-Soma Sourcebook, B105, Archangel Azreal, coral/coral.

There are five equilibrium bottles with coral as one of the fractions that could support us to enjoy the simple, lightest things: a lizard’s rustling, the licking sound at the water’s edge or the cooling of a conscious breath. In that moment an inner space opens up and the sweetness of Being descends.

Coral assembles our deeply imbedded love wisdom, the inner spaciousness which is the source and the background to appreciating something simple – a sound, a sight, a touch – when we see beauty, when we feel loving kindness toward another being. The joy of Being is found in simple, seemingly unremarkable things.

When this happens we go beyond the reflection of self, we are able to witness self on the stage of life from the perspective of an alive peace, a sense of well-being – what the ancient sages called ananda – the bliss of being.

Bottle 93

In an Aura-Soma sense the Ananda Khanda is the turquoise centre on the right side of the chest. Bottle 93, Hansel, pale coral/turquoise not only helps us to call in our inner observer but also to become aware of our oneness with the humanity – of our interdependence.

Bottle 92

The only two bottles that came into being as a pair, Hansel and Gretel, Bottle 92, pale coral/olive, messages the equality and cooperation of our inner male (structure/form) and female (vision/formlessness). Hansel and Gretel need to work in harmony and trust each other implicitly – and so we move beyond duality towards the blending of spirit and matter – the Goddess within our ever-present bodies.

The Goddess feels her connection to the fertile Earth, she represents the simplicity of communal life close to the soil: cooperation, community and universality are her strengths.

Feel her beauty in you and your beauty in her, let the separation disappear until you can feel that you are she, you are Goddess, you are love itself.
