The only way that we can live, is if we grow. The only way that we can grow is if we change. The only way that we can change is if we learn. The only way we can learn is if we are exposed. And the only way that we can become exposed is if we throw ourselves out into the open. Do it. Throw yourself

Essentially we birth alone: all great things begin in isolation (red) but it is through mutuality (green) that we mature. Selfhood is singleness whereas love is the ease of co-operative sharing – this could be the quintessential polarity that sparks human evolution.

Bottle 27
Bottle 28

In an Aura-Soma sense this process is reflected in the red-green continuum. Green is a secondary colour made up of the primaries blue and yellow. A lesser known fact is that light in the appropriate density shone through blue and yellow also creates red and we know that red and green are opposites on the colour rose. It seems that all the colours on the colour rose revolve around the red-green axis: ‘a balance between head and heart, root and heart and the relationship between the inner male and female’. Keynote for Bottle 27, Robin Hood, Red/Green. Any of the eighteen bottles with a green fraction could support us to find an inner ease; both Bottle 27 and 28 Maid Marion, Green/Red are especially helpful with easing the challenges of co-operation and constant interchange with others.

Bottle 38

Mutuality, an inclusiveness of others, trusting that the whole is more than the sum total of the parts, creates ease. Ease is actually an inner harmony arising from within whilst relating to another person or even an object or a situation – in the same way as a dancer is related to the floor. It is the absence of the ghosts of yesterday and the total identification with an inclusive tomorrow: ’Inner transformation through letting go of the past enables the expression of truth from the heart’. Keynote for Bottle 38, Troubadour II/Discernment, Violet/Green.

Bottle 13

The word ‘mutual’ comes from the Latin muto, which means ‘I change’. In the realm of relatedness there is constant change because there is mutuality. Bottle 13, Change in the New Aeon, Clear/Green implies that the emotional side of life needs to be illumined for change to occur. The lesson of mutuality is to balance action and reaction as part of responsible productivity, to open our hearts to share each other’s gifts and each other’s burdens so that the flow of energy is from the one to the all and from the all to the one.

Bottle 10

The affirmation for Bottle 10, Go Hug a Tree, Green/Green is ‘I create space so that I may do what needs to be done’. Space is not a bottomless urn, space is mutuality: everything we fling into space returns with a whole world attached to it – no-one can escape the return tide. As we sow so shall we reap. At an archetypal level the return journey of Bottle 10 is the last bottle in the range with a green fraction, Bottle 88, The Jade Emperor, Green/Blue, a bottle that teaches us to understand dharma: ‘it is not what we do, but the way we do what we do that makes the difference’.

The more at ease we become, the more we see that separation and aloneness are illusions and the more we feel the presence of others in our spiritual hearts – beyond time and space. Love goes beyond all dimensions and dissolves all boundaries.
