The Elven Star Interpretations
Mystery 6: Softening into Spiritual Awareness
Use your sixth Sabian Symbol to study the word Sorry
Arrival in this world as a baby is quite shocking for the soul. No amount of forewarning could educate spirit to know what it will feel like to descend into its opposing principle. Materiality is as ardently keen to contain and deny spirit as is spirit to inspire and raise up matter. Having no strength or comprehension, the baby’s position is very vulnerable so its inner imperative is to secure itself from harm and find a place to be. This is thrusting.
The soul has its own purpose for incarnating and this is not fear-based at all. It is not interested in security but more accepting, easy and naive, not at all thrusting. In fact the less we push and the more we observe and respond, the closer we can tune into the soul.
