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.
Today we will continue with that series:
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.”
