The Second Level of Mazal
The entrance into the second level of Mazal is characterized by a unique sense of purpose. Having learned already the links between various events that take place you realize that rather than being directed from without all of your subsequent progress comes about via inner direction. You make the course and then walk the path accordingly. It is an awesome task to be responsible for your own movements and your own sense of direction but there is a constant source of guidance that never leaves you. This guidance conveys a strong sense of rightness when you are taking the holy path. By now you will have realized that the Creator walks with you or rather walks through you. This is perhaps the most difficult to understand on this second level of Mazal.
Whereas on the first level of Mazal you know that you are being divinely guided you let yourself go into the hands of unity but you seek more than this. It is a progression of that unity that at a certain point the Creator walks through you meaning that you walk in concert with the Creator not by your side but as a singular unity of expression.
Imagine knowing exactly what to do and the right moment to do it. There is no hesitation since you are part of a complete flow. You recognize your beginning out of the mists of darkness or at least the great unknown and then because of this you understand the right moves to make keeping everything connected together synchronous throughout all aspects and eventual turns of play.
It is in this second level of Mazal that you begin to take on the qualities of Creator thought. What becomes surprising to you is that it isn’t very much different from your normal way of thinking except for the scope and connected aspects of what you are thinking about. Your reach becomes long and sense of action locks in step with that extended thought. Short term outcomes are observed and yet greater satisfaction comes with the longer term demonstrations of your intention. You realize then too that seeming setbacks are complementary to this second level of Mazal and that they do indeed provide the opportunities for the successful eventuation of your longer term outcomes.
The process of thinking also changes in that symbolic meanings convey deeper insights. A few concepts strung together may suffice for an entire range of experiences. You start to become aware of the totality of events and not just of their periodic payoffs. An analogy for your thinking process at this level of attainment is that instead of thinking just with your brain you use your entire body and then the entire body of the universe extending to infinity. This is the power of the second of Mazal.
Now these descriptions of the levels of Mazal are mere shadows of what is actually taking place and yet as shadows they do reflect the essence of the experience. In practice thinking about these kinds of things can only take place via an imaging type relationship. The beauty of this relationship is that at a certain point the shadow receives its true reflection and then the experience is known in its fullness achieving both the shadow and its reflection.
