The One and the Many

If you follow your bliss, you put yourself on a kind of track that has been there all the while, waiting for you, and the life that you ought to be living is the one you are living. Wherever you are—if you are following your bliss, you are enjoying that refreshment, that life within you, all the time.

Joseph Campbell

The Law of the One and the Many declares that at all levels the universe is comprised of cycles of oneness becoming manyness and then returning to oneness. Our journey from spirit into matter and our return to spirit is a manifestation of this law.

Individually and collectively we are consciousness as light, descended into the diversity of creation. For aeons we have called this the Fall – probably because to a greater or a lesser degree we come into life with a growing sense of being separate, fragmented, without meaning or direction and in chaos: our perceived wounding. Our path has been to re-ascend back into oneness – our perceived healing.

Coral is a tertiary colour combining primary red (awakening) and secondary orange (insight and bliss): awakening to the perfection of our lives. The coral energy symbolises the threshold of a new paradigm in which we naturally reside on the rainbow bridge between spirit and matter – that the many imponderables, paradoxes and unanswerable questions that are so much part of our journey are accepted as such. Using any of the five bottles with coral as one of the fractions gradually reconnects us to the wisdom of our deeper heart.

Bottle 87

Bottle 87, Love Wisdom, pale coral/pale coral could support us 'To be able to see ourselves beyond the reflection of self'. (Keynote for this bottle) – to see ourselves as part of a larger plan. This implies that the masks we have worn to protect ourselves have become superfluous, that when we deny or disown certain parts of our self, we are in denial of our purpose as part of the universal purpose.

Our descent into creation as innocent angels merely offers us the opportunity to awaken our consciousness through the mirror of duality; we ascend as experienced angels including increasingly more into our conscious awareness as we explore all possible connections between body, mind and spirit. This is the path of synthesis.

Bottle 105

The keynote for Bottle 105, Archangel Azreal, iri-descent coral/coral promises 'Going beyond separation, receptive to the feminine and touching unity.'

Time and eternity are two aspects of the same experience-whole. We are in the process of awakening to the truth that we are both spirit and matter – one cannot exist without the other. We are inherently both One and Many simultaneously.
