Recently, there was a passionate, lively conversation between a diverse group of HD followers regarding a positive resurrection of HD, in some way. In that conversation was the opportunity to offer an opinion and insights and soon, after sharing the new position that Kashi holds with HD, the conversation moved towards:
Why was Kashi still involved with HD if she no longer felt it was effective?
It’s true, most of the HD Kashi videos have been taken down regarding the teachings and many articles have also been removed from the HD Planet website. Slowly, but surely, Kashi’s participation in the HD community is fading into the background and evaporating. With the public conversation demonstrating the change in direction came a slight bit of melancholy as the realization that the personality promoting a teaching that once held great passion and enthusiasm was now diminishing. Gone, gone beyond, gone it has become.
That deep passion for HD is a very common space for people who get hooked into the exploration. Over and over, it is demonstrated by so many people as they come into the fold and become fascinated by its many “bells and whistles” while spending lots of time, energy and money trying to figure it out. Its a beautiful thing, really, because it is the beginning of a very important journey, …..well, maybe.
As Ra Uru Hu states, the founder of Human Design: “That’s why Human Design is mental! Not spiritual, or therapeutic or you know: Human Design is a mental system so that we can finish our mental business, so that we can get to the Spirit.
And we can’t get to the Spirit until we finished this mind trip, because as long as we’re trying to give Inner Authority to our mind, we can never get to the Spirit, never, never. So we have to finish our mental business. That means we have to come to understand our nature, and then to experiment in our lives, to recognize its inherent truth.”
What inherent truth? The mind?…… Inner Authority?
So, in other words, we spend time exploring concepts of our mental nature so that we can transcend it and get to Spirit. Right?
HD is all mental so the inner authority that we are navigating with is for the mind – wow, ok.
Where are you taking us Ra?
“The whole challenge for you in your process, the only way in which you can leave or transcend the Bodygraph and approach your purpose correctly, is you have to deal with the characteristics. The whole theme of, and the teaching of Human Design is that we teach strategy and authority in order for a being to come to grips with the power of characteristics in their life and to ultimately be able to transcend them by operating correctly as themselves. The reward for transcending your characteristics is that you find your role”
~ Ra Uru Hu, founder of Human Design
Please see what is being stated here: “transcend the body graph and approach purpose correctly”.
And then, “ultimately transcend them by operating correctly as themselves.”
Ra dear – You mention above that the HD is all mental so we are using our Strategy and Authority to work with our mind to overcome it????
“And the moment that you grasp the essence of your Design and you start your process of living that out, by the time you’ve confirmed that for yourself, 7 years, by the time you’re going through that process, you will leave the mind behind.”
Ok Ra, the formula is – strategy and authority for how our mind operates, practiced for seven years and then we are liberated and get to spirit after a complete set of 7 years, yes?
There are many people who sail way beyond the 7 year mark in their experiment and never graduate to “Spirit”. They continue their investigation through the many layers of teachings and spend great amounts of effort, time and money to make sure that they learn everything there is to learn about characteristics. Many people store and share large amounts of data obviously, hoping to find the golden nugget at the end of the rainbow ……and graduate? Is there a certificate somewhere that indicates one has graduated from the mind?????
“That’s why Human Design is mental! Not spiritual, or therapeutic or you know: Human Design is a mental system so that we can finish our mental business, so that we can get to the Spirit.”
Ok Ra – how do we activate “Spirit” once we have exhausted the knowledge of characteristics and when do we actually finish the mental business? Is there such a thing?
Oh, thats right, this is not spiritual so we go else where for the spiritual teachings in order to effectively get to spirit and live out our true role – in seven years.
“Once you know the formula you are liberated, and then you can deal with the spirit.”
We learn to understand our mental process to get to the place where we can embrace a spiritual reality?
Will someone please throw a life-line ~
In the ancient teachings of enlightenment, there is no mind, there is only vehicle of form and consciousness.
Consciousness is in accordance to how aware, how intense and how present one is to the moment, which is experienced in accordance to body health and accompanying karma playing out in the life experience.
In fact, the mind is the composite of karmic residue carried over from past lives, and current, resting in the NADIS, as they are called in the ancient science and recognized as Channels in HD. The NADIS are a part of the physical form expressed through the nervous system with its counterpart the Chakras stemming off of major glands creating the thought-field in accordance with the state of the lymphatic system and experienced physically in the right and left nostrils, eyes and ears, using the senses as they operate through breath influenced by environment and perceiving reality. Yes, its a very complex operating system operating on different levels in different ways all in accordance to the influence of what surrounds us, what we eat as food and the imprints of the planets as we journey towards a fully integrated being. It’s multi-dimensional logic, which includes abstract and many more layers of intelligence beyond mundane duality of left and right, abstract and logical.
In the space of higher intelligence, all those navigating from that place are accessing the same source: ONENESS also known as higher conscious, cosmic intelligence.
Certainly, there are common characteristics amongst humans conveyed through the astrological system of constellations and planets revealing the maturation level of spirit consciousness, and ultimately, the way a person thinks and behaves and what is causing the imbalance in health or challenges in life. Its a comprehensive story of Spirit merging with matter and the process of matter waking up to integration through the act of surrender, overcoming delusion. Body and Spirit are in constant relating and evolution, together.
Through the ancient science of astrology, we find the many, many layers of information on how, why, when and where, even more so than HD and more accurately. After all, HD is not spiritual in nature – its just a system to play with to understand the mind.
A huge part of who we are as a human is left out in our process of gaining understanding through this modern system.
“Once you know the formula you are liberated, and then you can deal with the spirit.” ~ Ra Uru Hu
Through a few simple exercises, the mind can continuously be reoriented for spirit to inhabit and control the flow of life so that one can sink deeply into their role. Figuring out the mind is an impossible task because as long as it is focused on figuring itself out, the release into spirit driven consciousness is avoided and ignored. In the process of trying to figure out why and how, the mind only spins faster and harder, void of expansion and maturation as an integrated being. Life is in constant change and so are the influencing factors orchestrating one’s reality. This can be easily viewed through astrology yet, absent in the HD system.
In order for Spirit to drive the vehicle to live out the role, higher principles must be applied. That is a difficult task for many because it demands responsibility and a higher level of intelligence, beyond the senses. When higher intelligence steps in, suddenly, what our mind and senses love doing is challenged and we are beckoned out of our comfort zone of sameness, familiarity and dullness that is so heavily a part of the human condition.
Perhaps the greatest nuisance in the exploration of HD is the confusion that is bred using the names of chakras to define how the mind operates. This concept is grossly misleading in how the process of consciousness integrates with form. Once Spirit takes over the vehicle in higher conscious navigation, the Ajna Chakra becomes activated and with that activation the Heart Chakra begins to stir as well as the Crown Chakra. And then, the kundalini force is stimulated and a new operating system is put in place to navigate life in pure truth. Yet, all of this is in measure in one’s ability to move more intelligently through life fulfilling one’s role.
Yes, its time to shut down the Ferris wheel of mental churning and hop off the carnival train.
Yes, ready to transcend the mind and embrace a fully Spirit driven vehicle that is operating in higher intelligence with conscious awareness.
Thank you Swamiji for setting this soul free and empowering opportunity to live in Spirit Driven Conscious Reality.
What a breath of fresh air, literally.
