Union Unity United

Conformity due to outer pressure rather than inner direction. The power of united emotions, energies, ideas.

If this is a trade union it can suggest conformity due to outer pressure rather than inner direction, or if it is positive, the power of united emotions, energies, ideas.

It is also important that we have a largely unconscious urge to find union with what causes us to exist. To understand this, you must first see that while we sleep our conscious self is largely or totally unconscious, and while we dream our voluntary muscles are paralysed – therefore another will or motivating force moves our body. So, we have a Conscious Will, and what I will call a Life Will. The first one we have experience of as we can move our arm or speak in everyday activities; but the second will takes over when we sleep. This Will is observable while awake and expresses as spontaneous movement as seen in our breathing, sneezing, vomiting and all our vital functions such as heartbeat.

Remember that it wasn’t your mother who created your body, but the process of life. The human personality – the You that you call yourself, with a name, is only a tiny thing. It is moved and tossed around by all manner of drives, ambitions, emotions, fears, temptations, worries, love and desire with its pains and hopes; it is something we take so seriously and get carried away into awful situations.

Sex is about the profoundest of unions; not the jigging about of humans, but the meeting of the sperm and ovum, and that is an expression of what, in our experience of human self-awareness, we call love. The opening of the sexual organs of a plant – what we call a flower – is an expression again of what humans call love. If a woman displayed herself in that way to a man, we would say she was in love. All of these fundamental drives, urges and body transformations are part of the archetypal power of love or union.

The sperm and ovum – when they meet, burst asunder and give themselves completely to each other – I mean completely, and they become a unique life form out of that union/love.

United or merged with someone or something: This is like love, in which you absorb qualities from the other person, animal or thing and they from you. In some dreams you might even become them as you make big life changes and allow new aspects of yourself to emerge. See PotentialNot Seeing
