Divine marriage is the union of two apparently opposite forces joining to create a much greater, balanced and neutral entity. Some might describe it as yin and yang, some might embrace the idea of the god and the goddess, for many it is the meeting and commitment of soul mates that personify the quality of the sacred dance. Divine marriage is essential for each of us as we walk a conscious Grail path, but don’t assume that this involves another human being.
My writing, indeed my teaching in general is fuelled by my personal experience and journey, my own learning, seeking and often vulnerability are as I understand it, my greatest assets, but of late it has been tinged with generalities and has taken a less intimate tone… there’s a really good reason for that…
Divine marriage is sacrosanct. In a partnership, the most intimate details of your hopes, dreams, fears and fantasies are laid bare for the other party to embrace and the level of trust involved is the difference between feeling safe, loved and cared for or feeling betrayed and exposed. I’ve entered into a Divine marriage with my soul in order to know me better, in order to heal what holds me apart from the overflowing cup that is my Grail and that requires me to honour my soul’s vulnerabilities or rather it requires my soul to honour my ego’s vulnerabilities as my soul is my most invulnerable part and cannot be diminished by anyone’s actions including my own.
The most significant thing that has become apparent as a result of this union, is that I undertook the commitment in order to lead me to the Grail but the Grail was never lost, it was never out of my reach and very second my ego allowed my soul to speak and found the only words my soul knew how to say were: “I love you, welcome home” suddenly the cup overflowed and those words were all I needed.
