Your inner Mystic archetype Ally has a clear message for you. Allow It to impart this message in the following two mediums:

1)Imagine you have just finished a wonderful Asian buffet dinner. The waiter has brought you two fortune cookies at the end of your meal. You will recognize that the first message relates to your present life and the second forecasts a desirable future condition that you can realize.

Open them here (allow your Mystic consciousness to fill in the words):

(You can print out this blog then use the fortune cookie shapes and heart shapes below as templates to write, draw or paste images.)

2) After reading your fortune cookie messages, please take them to Heart. In the Heart space below, place your own words or images to communicate to your Mystic Ally how you will manifest the future condition S/he has forecasted for you. 

It is vitally important that you work IN TANDEM (like a bicycle-built-for-Two) with your Mystic Ally, so that your Inner perceptions and intentions can be effectively, powerfully in alignment with your Outer capabilities and Action.

A Mystic Better Ending

magician-367467__340

Some stories have better endings as their theme. Transformational storylines in general are often of this nature: faced with dire adversity and challenged to the depths, a protagonist overcomes  their own inherent flaws to triumph for the better interests of all concerned.

The Arthurian legend is of this nature, even though King Arthur himself is killed in battle at the end of the saga. Yet, he has triumphed in his very effort to rekindle knightly chivalry in a context of surrounding chicanery. The Roundtable itself symbolizes a Mystic ideal of shared heroic camaraderie and courage to offset and overcome the forces of Darkness or selfish greed.

Arthur’s own mentor, of course, is the Mystic Wizard Merlin, who has tutored Arthur from childhood to use his intuitive understanding, his Heart, in becoming the greatest, fairest Leader he can be. Camelot represents something like a Shangri La utopian Kingdom set in a practical feudalistic society.

Arthur overcomes internal adversity in mastering the duality presented by his beloved Guenevere and his similarly beloved Lancelot finding each other in kismet despite their deep respect for and loyalty to Arthur. This situation challenges King Arthur to the core. He must oust Lancelot and pass sentence on his Queen because that is the law of the land to which he is bound by his own chivalrous nature. Various accounts hint at Arthur’s inward forgiveness and acceptance of the star-crossed lovers despite his necessary actions in the human realm.

I believe the resolution of the story of Arthur highlights the depths and heights—the duality–of the human condition. We are each of us Soul, having a human experience, yet our nature is of divine love as eternal, in-dwelling Soul. Our Outer lives often call for action that our Inner natures resolve better, deeper than may be possible to realize or to express directly. As such, we learn our lessons and unfold,/ moving on to continue to face ourselves and set new goals. Relationships ‘end,’ yet if they have fulfilled their purpose, then moving on is for the better interests of all concerned.

The Mystic archetype is that part of each of us that can embrace duality or paradox and achieve what Jung calls the Mysterium Conjunctionus: the Sacred Marriage of Opposite natures, united as One. This is an INNER marriage, of Spirit/Self with Body/Emotion/Mind.  This is the Better-est Ending of all, Always.
