Ra’s Words of Wisdom
It is the great duality of all of this. It is choiceless. It’s deeply choiceless. As a matter of fact, whether they’re going to do this or that, or get to this or that, in fact, that is what it is. However, we are in a movie and it’s a maya movie. In the maya movie, it looks like we have all these choices. We have to play out the game.
Basically, what we’re doing when we align somebody to their inner Authority is that we take them out of the choice game of the mind. The choice game of the mind is very different than the decision making of the actual Authority. The choice-making of the mind is caught up with all of the rules of the maya and with all of the illusions of the maya. What we’re trying to do is guide them to a place where they have no idea how the decision or the discernment process actually works.
But whether they get to that point or not, yes, it’s true, it’s choiceless. My assumption is that whenever I’m working with anyone or teaching anyone or doing a reading for somebody, what I look at is that they are helpless in being here. I’m helpless in being here doing this, and you’re helpless in being there receiving it. And yet, at the same time, in the maya we come up with all of these reasons, we come up with all of these concepts about why we are all here. My assumption is that if somebody comes to you for a reading that the fractal is right. The fact that you can elaborate on that and open that up in terms of what is their choiceless, their relationship to you in that fractal, it is something that can align them to what is already happening. It’s so obvious.
It’s very clear to me that Human Design, at its mundane level, is here to be a part of the maya. It is the mechanics of the maya. It’s helping align beings to what will reduce pressure in their lives and make their lives easier and something more comfortable to live with. But at a deeper level, it’s very difficult. It’s one of those deep, deep ironic situations for somebody like me and I don’t shy away from saying it, but what to do? On one side I teach that there is a way to get to being correct. And on the other side it’s all choiceless anyway. Those who get to the correctness, this is the line of geometry that was laid out.
But we don’t live that way. We don’t see that way. Like a man who breaks his head through the sky, you can’t stay there. If you stay there, somebody will come up behind you and you’ll be in trouble. You just can’t stay there. You don’t see any more. So in the illusion we do the best we can to make the illusion work well for others. After all, we’re adjusting the way in which they operate within the maya, whether or not there is a true satori in all of that. It’s very hard for me to work that all out.
I have enormous respect for my students because they have done what I did not do. I didn’t learn Human Design in that sense. It was done to me. The whole awakening process and all of these things was an event. Everything since then has been a way to understand the nature of the input. Clearly there is this deep binary of what existence is. Within the maya to tell somebody that operating correctly means honoring their Authority and their Strategy will help them in the maya to live a life of less resistance. Whether or not they can ever grasp that that was there for them anyway is another story.
But it’s like anyone I have ever done a reading for. I could never see that just because they came to me that they were going to be awake. It is the irony of all of this. What I like, what I enjoy, is that because the knowledge provides us with such a deep understanding of the mechanics, we can help people and we can make a difference in their lives that nothing else can actually do. And that there is a way to align human consciousness to a form that operates correctly. But it doesn’t mean that the consciousness is liberated. It doesn’t mean the consciousness awakens. It simply means that the form can live in this life correctly.
I’m the Mother’s son. I’m here for the form. If, as a by-product to the correctness of the form, there is a transformation in the spirit, then that’s a bonus. But the work of Design is the work of the form principle. We’re just trying to align consciousness to the right kind of form. We’re trying to teach the Personality consciousness how to surrender to the form. Perhaps then the Personality can be reached at a deeper level.
