Years ago I received this message during meditation: ‘Gather the Nine and become One’: Gather all the aspects of yourself and you will become One within yourself.
It did not say ‘Let Go’ it said ‘Gather’.
Once you achieve that you can let go and be One in the same breath. At least that is what I believe. And that is my personal path, no matter the intellectual discussions going back and forward of who is right or more right.September 12, 2006 at 1:24 pm #17975
It is nice to hear from you on this topic. What do you think that Nine meant?

It took me several tough lessons before I understood about the 9. The message at that time was clear, my interpretation of it was a mess and I made mistakes, which in return learned me a lot about myself. So it was no mistake really, just very profound lessons.
Gather the 9 = The bagua (8) and the center gate way as the portal to iternal life = 9… it is a map that is telling us how to become immortal or iternal. Understand/become the map and you have the key to the doorway to iternity.September 12, 2006 at 3:27 pm #17979
I agree. Wu Ji holds yin and yang as one. Space element holds other five elements as one. 9th empty force holds other 8. In Buddhism, there is a 9th consciousness. This can be compared to Christ Consciousness or Krishna Consciousness in Hinduism as they call it.
Each chakra stores a part of one’s consciousness and in kundalini yoga you combine them at the 9th above the head like Chia does. Atleast, this is what I think. 9th is empty. You integrate them as one whole. Yogis call it superconsciousness too, or Daoists wu-wei.
One can see that there is a huge arau above the head maybe 2-3 metres over.
In Buddhist meditation, we let go of ego yes, but in the process of fogetting the self, these consciousness do combine without doing any energy manipulation. So they are gathered by themselves, just as the microcosmic orbit is completed by itself without any kind of gathering of qi, it gathers by itself.
I just try to equalize all the paths together, I learned that they all lead to this same fundamental oneness, whether you are practicing alchemy or sitting in stillness. Not trying to be right or wrong, but eliminating wrongs and rights so we see the Truth, not more, not less.

I know that for me at the moment my path is related to accepting/understanding all the parts of myself. Learning how to take the good with the bad. And probably more importantly for me – seeing the goodness and potential for things in myself and being unafraid to share these with others.
Maybe that is why these days I am generally more interested in what makes people the same; rather than what makes people different.
