OCCULT MEDITATION N° 2
Bliss is in giving and not taking.
Sun gives life. He is Man.
Moon receives. She is Woman.
Moon has phases of waxing and waning.
The disciple should learn to give and come out of the habit of receiving. This is a fundamental quality of discipleship, namely, to give more than to receive. Giving and receiving is in three planes. In all planes, learning to give more than receiving is a practice of discipleship. North Pole is distributive and South Pole is receptive; the former is the positive pole, and the latter is the negative pole.
Distributing, sharing and giving lead the disciple to the centres above the diaphragm. Receiving leads one to the centres below the diaphragm. The centres above the diaphragm transcend man into Divine planes. The centres below the diaphragm lead man into these three tendencies. Man can be beastly, humane or Divine. The choice is his. But, for the disciple, the instruction is to release, to give, to share and to distribute.
The Scriptures define man and woman from the standpoint of giving and receiving. They do not identify the man and the woman by their physical appearance. Giver is man; receiver is woman. The former habit leads to liberation; the latter habit leads to limitation.
Sun is giver of life. Moon is receiver. Sun is therefore man; Moon is woman. The Moon wanes and waxes. The Sun does not. The one who lives in higher centres is stable. He does not totter. The one who lives in lower centres is unstable, shaky. He totters.
The disciple should note this phenomenon of nature and learn to be a giver.
