Stages of Life in a Human Being (Continued)

DIAPHRAGM – 57-64 YEARS OLD PAGE 42, TEXT 2

Freedom to BE

“This is one more step to experience Know Myself BE IT IS IS (Infinite Truth, Infinite Self, Impersonal Self). Diaphragm is a 6th Depth Flow so we are closer to our Source to whom we are in essence. Now Know Myself with all my perfections and imperfections. Now I don’t have the pretension that I know everything as when I was 25 to 32 years old (Heart Function Energy, another Chest Function Energy), I know that I know nothing and I am opened to still learn and live with my doubts. And at the same time, I am available to share what I have learned with others if they are interested. Therefore this can be a very rich period of time, with a lot of teaching, learning, exchange and growth.

Diaphragm Function Energy is a Chest Flow, and as all Chest Flows, will help to bring authenticity to my expression…for me to be aligned to what and who I truly am. Truth is something that Sagittarius, the sign related to Diaphragm, is always questing for. Most of us after years of looking for the answers outside will finally perceive that the Infinite Truth is that all that we need, all the resources and all the answers are inside! For sure now I know to appreciate and respect the others’ truth and perspectives. I am freer and I allow others to be so.

Jupiter ruling Sagittarius is bringing the quality of expansion, going beyond limitations, being in touch with my Infinite Self. It is more available now the opportunity to realize how my Self is Infinite in terms of space. When I was younger, I wanted to stand out and to be noteworthy and special. Now I want to see what is universal and what I have in common with all humanity, with all Nature. I have become aware that I am united to all that is, I am part of the Wholeness, the Oneness, and how each part is affected by the harmony or disharmony of the Wholeness and vice-versa. By this time some will be aware of being the Infinite Self in terms of time: That is to say, Life is infinite; it just changes the way it expresses itself, having no beginning and no ending.”

Text 2, Stages of Life in a Human Being, Part 2, Ages 49-56

We have been looking at The Main Central publications that offer great insight into the contents of Text 2.

Issue Number 66, Fall 2009 continues a series of articles about the stages of life in a human being from page 42 of Text 2, authored by Iole Lebensztajn.

Stages of Life in a Human Being (Continued)

KIDNEY – 49-56 YEARS OLD PAGE 42, TEXT 2

Know Myself

“The Kidney organ has a seed shape like a bean. It is related to the seeds, potentials and gifts we bring to develop in this lifetime and also the seeds we plant in the heart of each person we are or have been in touch with through how we treat them. Kidney Function Energy is related as well to the seeds we bring from past generations (and/or past lives) and the seeds we will leave for the next generations (and/or next lives). That is a time to contemplate about how I have transformed resources I have received from the past and how I can share these transformed, recycled, even “upcycled” resources to be utilized in the future. I want everybody to upgrade now and also in the future. How can I be a source, a resource, for helping the world to be a happier place to be?

As discussed in the previous article of this series about the Bladder “time”, this is still a period of deep crisis for many of us. Some people start suffering because of fear of death (a Scorpio subject), that many times is caused by not living life in its depth and intensity. In fact, any kind of loss can be very difficult to deal with when the principles related to Kidney Function Energy are not well developed in our lives. Scorpio teaches us that, in truth, one does not lose what is really essential for our soul to grow in awareness, only that which is superficial and superfluous. Remember, this is a Deep Flow! Many times when we give up what is not essential, we will not feel this as a loss. However, when I am attached to it, and life takes it from me, I am likely to feel deprived.

Scorpio is opposite to Taurus (Large Intestine Function Energy – I have). That’s why we need to revisit the qualities brought by Large Intestine when we are 49-56 years old which are Security, Abundance, Generosity and Gratitude for what I have now instead of focusing on what I lost, what was taken or what I was not able to get till now.

As Heart Function Energy is a double fire, Kidney Function Energy is a double water, because Scorpio’s element is water, and 4th Depth is also water. Scorpio has to be with and explore our deep emotion and to be in movement – and in this case we will observe an intense movement inside that not always is perceived from outside.

Kidney Function Energy is the bridge with 6th Depth, our individual Source, the access to the Infinite Self. It is the bridge between form and formless. The more attached to matter I am, the more fear or resistance I will have to cross this bridge, to move through the steps that will take me closest to where I will find my true Self and finally Know Myself.”

Thank you, Iole.

Thank you, Mary.

Thank you, David.

Gassho, Namaste, Blessings

Stages of Life in a Human Being (Continued)

KIDNEY – 49-56 YEARS OLD PAGE 42, TEXT 2

Know Myself

“Kidney Function Energy is related to Scorpio, so we know that this will be a time of deep transformation, introspection and contemplation. Kidney Function Energy is a Deep Function Energy, helping us to journey deep inside, looking for what is hidden as secrets, mysteries and treasures. It has to be with getting to know the unknown, or better said, to remember the forgotten.

It is interesting to remember that Kidney Function Energy comes back to Main Central at the base of the sternum, center #14, waistline (page 43, Text 2). We have learned that Waistline is related to our mind expression, the way we digest and process food, thoughts and life in general. Looking at page 2 of Text 1, we see how Mary relates the Waistline with Physio-Psychology, and she says, “Stop, see within, listen.” These words always call my attention, and studying the relationships among Kidney, Scorpio and Waistline, we realize how our mind’s job is really to think more at the contemplation level. The root of the word contemplate is based on temple, which means open or consecrated space. Finally from 49-56 years old, we are more likely to experience our mind as an open, silent space to go inside and observe life from an impersonal perspective. In this period of life we get closer to the Impersonal Self (that Mary also mentions on this same page) – meaning someone who is more a neutral observer of life, detached from one’s ego preferences and needs, and who does not take every circumstance of life as personal stuff.

However, we also know people in these ages who express more the disharmonious aspect of the Impersonal Self which is disinterest, distance and indifference. This movement of going inside is felt more as a withdrawal, where I am busy with my little “me”, expressing mistrustfulness, insecurity and resentment.

In fact, the harmonious expression is to be more involved with sharing with than taking in. From 17-24 years old (Spleen “time” – another Toe Flow), my concern was how to take my sustenance from the world through the job/work. I will choose. From 49-56 years old, my interest is not so centered anymore in my own destiny but in humanity’s destiny. How can I collaborate with life to be not only more sustainable but to improve our environment on earth? I will have more of an ecological approach to life. Seeing myself, as an Infinite Self. I realize that My Self is not restricted to my body expression and how My Self is part of the One Infinite Self, the Wholeness in its infinite expressions, which is also inside My Self.”

We have been looking at The Main Central publications that offer great insight into the contents of Text 2.

Issue Number 65, Summer 2009 continues a series of articles about the stages of life in a human being from page 42 of Text 2, authored by Iole Lebensztajn.

Stages of Life in a Human Being (Continued)

BLADDER – 41-48 YEARS OLD PAGE 42, TEXT 2

Treat others as you would like to be treated.

“Yes, balance is a central theme now. We really set our heart on finding balance between give and receive, myself and the other, assertiveness and gentleness, listening and being heard, knowing what I want, going for it and postponing satisfaction (patience). Bladder Function Energy is nourished by the Main Central at the center of the sternum, at the heart area, Safety Energy Lock 13 at the center (see page 43, Text 2). Our heart now becomes even a better counselor, guiding us with discernment and common sense, bringing balance, well-being and self-esteem in our choices. Before, we had the tendency to be more rational. The energy was more concentrated in our heads (17-24 years: Spleen – back of the head; 25-32 years: Heart – top of the head; 33-40 years: Small Intestine – forehead). Now the energy is more concentrated at the 13 area, bust line; we will be more attracted to explore the spiritual realm. We will be more aware of ourselves, and when we find balance, we will express ourselves with compassion and a sense of humor.

Reciprocity, mutual acceptance and incentive, partnership, cooperation, and exchange are qualities we look for in our relationships that will now be highly appreciated and that are built very slowly in life. In general the professional and family life become less demanding now, and we have more time for enjoying our spouses and friends who can decrease in numbers and increase in intimacy.

At the same time, being by myself is not a drama anymore because I am a good companion for myself. I enjoy being with myself in silence, in touch with my inner wisdom, with my spirit. Of course, many people during this time and many times live the other side of this coin which is isolation, abandonment, separation and lack of contact with people, because, in fact, there is a lack of contact with oneself. I am looking for someone that completes and saves me from my emptiness and uncertainties.

For many in this period of life, work is not the primary source of satisfaction anymore. They develop more in their integrity, interiority, adaptability and altruism. However, we also find the ones who even intensify the hunt for status, possessions and power, being egocentric and intolerant. Of course, we also know people in this period of life suffering with victimization, submission, apathy, impotence, etc.

All the qualities and principles related to Bladder mentioned in this article are all available for all of us during this time. Sometimes we will express the lack of them; anyway these qualities will be acting even in their opposite polarity. From now on, we find a bigger variety in people’s lives depending on their family history, personality and how they have reacted to crises and changes. However, nobody fails in carrying out the process of being who one is.”

Thank you, Iole.

Thank you, Mary.

Thank you, David.

Gassho, Namaste, Blessings

BLADDER – 41-48 YEARS OLD PAGE 42, TEXT 2

Treat others as you would like to be treated.

“With Bladder Function Energy (41 to 48 years old) we enter a 4th Depth stage of life that goes till 56 years old, when Kidney Function Energy time ends. There is an overlap with page 12, Text 1, that also deals with periods of life ruled by different Depths. There, we see that 4th Depth rules life from 45 to 60 years old. So there is a doubled influence of 4th Depth principles during this time of our lives. Am I fulfilling my potential, my destiny? What is the purpose of my life? What is the meaning of my life? Questions like that will be surrounding our lives now. The answer to these questions can redefine the direction we are taking in different areas of our lives. It is very common during this time that people will face divorces, job changes, residential moves, financial loss, disease, etc. These are events that we engage in somehow. They force us to change the places (or roles) we hold that don’t fit anymore.

Bladder Function Energy is related to the Libra sign which is about our relationship with others. That is why during this period of life many human beings examine their relationships, and the more mature ones perceive the other as a mirror. The word “respect” gains a huge importance. I really want to be respected, I respect myself and I have learned to respect others. I finally have given up trying to change others, interfering in others’ lives when it is not really necessary, or imposing obligations on others. I respect others’ individuality, and I am faithful to my own. I realize that it is impossible to change others. One can only want from the other what s/he can or wants to give.

On the other hand, I do not depend so much on others’ acknowledgment or approval. Remember that this is a Face Flow as are Gall Bladder (4-5 years) and Stomach (14-16 years). When we ar 4-5 we look for our parents’ acknowledgment or approval. And when we are 14-16 years, we do anything to be accepted by the group. From 41 to 48 it is time to have free will and inner freedom to express my uniqueness. We were not ready for this at the periods mentioned above. It is time to trust in my inner resources and assume who I am (related to Lung Function Energy – Aries, opposite to Libra). At the same time, there is an increase in social interest, the desire to share and contribute to humanity, with solidarity, working in groups as an individual, to be secure about the place one occupies in the group. Being a grown-up one accepts differences and conflicts in the group and in all kinds of relationships. One looks for consensus, conciliation and balance, all Libra attributes.”

Stages of Life in a Human Being (Continued)

SMALL INTESTINE – 33-40 YEARS OLD PAGE 42, TEXT 2

After All, What Is Really Essential in Life?

“Small Intestine Function Energy is related to the sign of Virgo, which is related to many of the qualities described above and also helps us to be practical, helpful, and productive. That is why people at this age are mature enough to be in a management position at work, because they have gathered personal experience, they know their efficiencies and deficiencies and they now are more able to recognize potentials and limits in other people, too. Through their experiences of life, through failures and successes, they develop tolerance, acceptance and the capacity of seeing their own and others’ qualities and potentials – others’ needs, complexities and diversities. A good leader is the one who recognizes people’s talents and potentials and motivates them to express themselves.

The life purpose becomes more evident for many people in this period and one has more motivation and dedication to fulfill one’s potentials and dreams with patience, meticulousness and determination. Virgo – Small Intestine is related to the opposite sign Pisces – Liver Function Energy, which is about the 6-8 years old age – the time of many dreams and projects without power, yet to be accomplished. One wants to completely manifest one’s essence. It is a good time to analyze and distinguish unachieveable fantasies and do-able dreams.

However, many people have the tendency to be held in daily routines, apathy, inertia, feeling helpless, inferior and failed, denying life challenges and experiencing depression. We see some people at this age turning rigid, thinking they are always right, showing inflexibility in their thoughts and deeds which can bring rigidity and hardness to their joints, muscles and the body in general – mainly when they are more than 65 years old (Umbilicus time, another Finger Flow, related to Earth signs). Still there will be some people who will take advantage of these principles related to solidarity to create this firm structure to really manifest their dreams and/or recognize aspects of their beings that were set aside in past choices and start building a new foundation.

For many, this new foundation is related to the start of their spiritual journey, looking for things like meditation, a new religion, a new way to be connected to the Source of Life. Small Intestine Function Energy brings together the influence of 5th Depth (Spirit – Fire element) and Liver Function Energy. Virgo is opposite Pisces (faith and intuition) for this period of life. These influences give rise to a broader capacity for one to see oneself and listen to one’s soul and be in tune with the Creator. And this is one of the most essential aspects of one’s life to be developed.”

Thank you, Iole.

Thank you, Mary.

Thank you, David.

Stages of Life in a Human Being (Continued)

SMALL INTESTINE – 33-40 YEARS OLD PAGE 42, TEXT 2

After All, What Is Really Essential in Life?

“During this stage of life, thanks to Small Intestine Function Energy, we have a clearer perception of how things work, how life works and how I work. From the experience collected until now I am able to realize how one thing affects and/or is related to another. The law of cause and effect is much more evident now, and I am reaping the consequences of some acts and behaviors of the past. Many times my health and well-being start showing the outcome of my good or bad habits. That’s why this is a good time to stop to analyze my lifestyle and routines and dedicate more time to gain more discipline for taking good care of myself and to gain better quality of life. Now I will have the will to organize my life, my work and home. On the other hand if I am the type of person who has been very organized, like a planner freak, I can have the impulse to look for more excitement and flexibility in my daily life.

Anyway, from 33-40 years old we will be seeking what is really essential, what is fundamental, what is the priority at each moment. This is not the time to be so much focused on what I have (Large Intestine “time” – 11-13 years old, another Finger Flow), but on who I am in essence. It is not time to be so identified with my roles (Leo – Heart: 25-32 years old) at home or at my work, but it is time to let masks drop. Some authors call this the “authenticity crisis”, in which we have the urge for discharging what is useless or inadequate. Some people at this time will be able to let go the false securities and guarantees, accepting conflict and incoherence as part of life instead of fighting all the time against them. They will realize that after moments of conflict or crises, we recreate ourselves anew, giving another meaning for life and realizing that everything passes. Everything always will pass.”
