The inspiration for this piece came to me on an ordinary day, thus reminding me that no thing, and no day can ever be considered ordinary. I was shown the blue burial chamber—the throat chakra.
“For there is no faithfulness in their mouth; Their inward part is very wickedness; Their throat is an open sepulchre; They flatter with their tongue.” Psalm 5:9
Beyond the azure gateway lie all sorts of evils. Putrification, rancidness, and the decay of our souls are hidden away from sight. Here is where we would become revealed, and the world would witness our heinous thoughts and actions. We must keep the chamber closed. This is Bluebeard’s castle, where the corpses of murdered wives are strewn.
The psalmist sings of those who are full of death, through their words and deeds. Yet, irony is present as the psalmist also utters a curse, and his request to God for destruction. Even in our victimhood, and in our seemingly pious reverence for God, still the blue chamber holds malediction. The very human condition of duplicity is expressed even amidst the most reverent of words. “Destroy thou them, O God; let them fall by their own counsels; Cast them out in the multitude of their transgressions; for they have rebelled against thee. “ Psalm 5:10.
What will others see when you roll away the stone from the sepulchre? You are exposed, and all inward parts become known. There is no burial room deep enough for all of the parts that are repulsive to us, including our own depravity. We hide our anger, our lies, our resentments, and our ill wishes. But they are only behind a veil, as diffuse radiation of the sky, as Rayleigh Scattering, as a smokescreen for Truth. What is the true meaning of Blue?
But let us think anew. The cave of secrets has been a place of restoration, renewal, and resurrection. From a sepulchre, Jesus brought forth his beloved friend, Lazarus. On the Third Day, the man Jesus demonstrated the Christ Consciousness which could defeat the death of the flesh. Can we understand that Death has no hold? What is the true meaning of Death?
Perhaps the answer can be found. As Ezekiel bore witness, the valley of dry bones, a massive death site, became a place of life, and hope. “Again he said unto me, Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto them, O ye dry bones, hear the word of the Lord.” Ezekiel 37:4. God spoke Truth. Ezekiel became the vessel, and death was no more. What is the true meaning of Prophesy?
The throat chakra is where we find the power of words, of song, and of expression of all sorts. It governs the condition of the physical body as well—mouth, tongue, lips, vocal cords, teeth, ears, and jaw. The throat reveals our spoken love, our sounds of affection, our ability to hear the angels, and what lies within our hearts. And yet, we cannot face our deepest wounds, which we push down into the burial chamber. They are secreted away, far from us, out of our sights. Yet our shadows can not be denied. We repress that which we would judge as evil. Yet all things are from God, so how can this be so? “O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.” Matthew 12:34 KJVAAE. What is the true meaning of Humanity?
Dear Reader, I offer you words of love. I sing songs of praise for your divinity. I open my mouth and reveal to you what lies within—the abundance of my heart. I have lied, I have cursed, and I have created a spirit of darkness. Yet I become restored, again and again. My throat becomes a place of beauty, lined with lapis stones, and glittering like sapphires. I am the aqua sign, born under the Aquarius sun. The Mayan cosmology has received me as the Blue Cosmic Night. My soul must express all of me—the darkness and the light. Within the throat chakra, all things are integrated and become the transition point between the Green Heart and the Violet vortex of the ajna. This is the true meaning of Word.
With great love,
