I have not had time to cover all your questions, but seek to catch up in the near future. John, I have enjoyed your last several posts. You have given excellent light on the male-female energies that I am sure will assist the understanding of many. I think you are catching a glimpse of how vast this subject could be.
To make it easier to keep our place let me quote the last paragraph of the meditation:
"The circle breaks up and before the group is a lovely garden given to us to beautify and enhance. We are attracted to a gentile hill and on the edges of the hill we will create the twelve different trees so they form a circle. You and your partner pick your spot where your tree will be. As you approach this spot you notice that the very ground you stand on seems to be alive and vibrant and you both kneel down in reverence at the holiness of the moment. You both place your hands on the earth and feel an enormous giving energy flowing into you. You lift your hands up and place then on your partner's and feel a tingling. Then you pull apart and between you a tree starts to grow. You sense two types of energy coming from the earth through you and your partner flowing into the tree until it grows into a full grown beautiful fruit tree with flowering buds in abundance."
The next step of the meditation is to see the flowering buds developing into fruit, but your fruit will be one of the twelve different kinds filling twelve different purposes representing the twelve different signs of the Zodiac.
You will pick one of the twelve that will be your fruit. The fruit corresponding to your sun sign would be a good choice, but you are free to choose another, as your sun sign has about 25% of zodiacal influence on your personality; thus the other eleven signs still influence about 75%.
The fruit you will visualize can look like any fruit on the earth or even some exotic other worldly fruit.
Here are the twelve attributes and their corresponding Zodiacal sign.
Aries: The eating of this fruit will cause the dissolution of all fear and a feeling of confidence and courage will arise throughout your being. It will make you feel like you can tackle any problem and solve it. After eating of this you can fearlessly face any person, situation or problem. Your power of decision and Attention is enhanced and you look forward to each new day and what it has to offer.
Taurus: Pleasure and pleasantness comes to mind when you eat this fruit. Pleasure is only carnal when there is a betrayal of self or others, but we must remember that pleasure is one of the gifts of God.
When eating this fruit you not only feel a thrill of joyful feeling go through your physical body, but you also feel extremely pleasurable emotions, very peaceful mentally and higher spiritual feelings. This fruit is especially wonderful to eat when you are weighted down with the cares of the world, have pain or stress. The pleasure you will feel on all levels will elevate your spirits and make you forget any troubles you have.
Gemini: This sign represents the duality we have in our higher and lower self. General humanity lives 100% in the lower self, but as one becomes a spiritual seeker he senses the higher self and seeks to be centered there. All have difficulty staying in that consciousness, but this third fruit will be a great help for you. When you partake of it you will instantly feel your vibration increase and a great lifting up of your consciousness into a oneness with the Christ within as well as an innumerable number of beings without who have the Christ consciousness and as a result you feel great joy and happiness.
Cancer: The key phrase here is "protection from all destructive forces" and the key word is "security."
As we go through the turmoil of daily living we all experience a time that we desire to withdraw into some secret place and just have a peaceful secure rest where we are completely impervious to the cares and threats of the world.
When you eat of this fruit your consciousness enters into this safe and sure place where you will rest for a period of time and come forth greatly refreshed and ready to take on the world again from a position of strength.
Leo: The eating of this fruit brings the joy of self fulfillment. Think of a time when you reached a goal or fulfilled a dream. Think of how good that made you feel and then multiply that feeling by one hundred or more. The joy you feel with this fruit is the joy of fulfilling your dreams in the past, present and future. Your higher self sees all time in one glance and can give you a combined joy coupled with a vision of your unlimited ability to Become and have joy through that Becoming.
When you eat of this fruit you realize that true self fulfillment is the opposite of selfishness as the world understands it because in the higher reality there is only one Self and consciousness in that self brings pure ecstasy
Virgo: This fruit brings to your consciousness the joy of the Mother and Father in giving birth and then nurturing your child or creation until the Christ descends to bless your child as well as you. You hear the voice of God saying "this is my child with whom I am well pleased."
Eating of this fruit fills your mind full of wonderful ideas and dreams from which you can choose to manifest as you would give birth to a holy child.
Eating of this fruit can also bring a greater connection between you and your children. You will see their souls and their path and come to a greater realization as to how to help them. In addition to your physical children there are many who depend on you as a child does its parent. This fruit can also connect you with these people on the same level as your children if you desire and will give you vision to share and assist.
To be continued.
