My spirit guides gave me an interesting tidbit today. The stealthy animals that know how to walk around virtually unseen, have an ability to embody darkness. This would be like the cougar that can walk through the grasses so that you can barely see her. Unlike a rooster who struts his stuff and is very obviously there. The consciousness of cougar has a component that knows darkness or the un-manifest.
When we go through winter we humans come closer to the consciousness of darkness. The land around us is still and life has gone deep within the Earth. If you know how to enjoy the season, you know that it brings a stillness and a peace to you. I’m betting that when humans such as solders and the like learn to go unnoticed they are learning to embody this consciousness as well.
I think being in this state is about going deep within as if you are connected with the deepest depths of your being. So alive and yet so still, because your life energy is deeply grounded in the within.
This is different than disassociation, or soul loss. You haven’t left your body to be safe. Nor is it like burying yourself deep inside so no one can get to you. Nor is it an invisibility cloak that covers over what is really there in order to avoid detection. Instead it is a state of being.
It is beingness that vibrates with the energy of the good night. Just like the winter season embodies stillness, your body embodies something similar. It is a type of consciousness that is almost non-consciousness or non-being. The every day conscious mind skips over anyone in this state like a bird’s wing skimming the waters surface. The animal or person becomes invisible to minds that are in an average state of awareness.
But if you’ve ever been able to tune into someone or seen animal that is in a stealth mode you might be aware that this isn’t absence like someone who has checked out or left the building. If for instance you’ve seen a cougar moving almost invisible across a landscape, you might have noticed that there is something profound about its presence. At once it is there and it is not there. You feel that you have brushed up against something powerful, if difficult to describe.
I’m not really sure why this is a good thing to know about. I mostly have an instinct that this is worthwhile in some way, and trust it to evolve from here.
