The Bridge of Golden Sighs is a real place in the metaphysical heart. We often forget, when we talk about being in the heart, that when we are, the Heart is not a ‘fixed’ destination.
We enter the realms of the heart and as we journey our way through it, we touch upon a kaleidoscope of different realms with different qualities. Many tests are to be taken, many inside battles to be fought still. I often touch upon those; the latest in: The Gap Called Despair.
One of the challenges we will encounter is passing the Bridge of Golden Sighs. It does not cross a gap. Beneath the Bridge is nothing but softness, forgiveness of ourselves, and the ability to carry on when we fall off. Defeat is not an option here, only the pure and crystal clear knowing that: In order to master it, we have to practice.
For some it takes a lifetime to cross, for others it is a bit easier. We might have continued this journey on the account of prior lives passed by.
The Bridge of Golden Sighs is way beyond the Bridge of Forgiveness of others. And yet, still there would be reminiscences of that. As said before, the Matrix of forgiveness is: Stop blaming others, and you won’t have to forgive. That is obviously also stepping out of victimhood.
These bridges are also a landmark as to leaving the Matrix of control and getting free of its programming. It is the vortex, the fork in the road for each soul stepping out of the emotional programming that we are so obviously or subtly exposed too. This is where you decide to plug into emotions, both your own and the emotional expectations and thereby control of others. I touched upon that in: The Silent Treatment.
The idea is to cause you to feel insecure, lesser of a being, in confusion about what you did wrong. When you are exposed to that, rest assured that you did nothing wrong. The owner of that emotion is the person trying to play you. Like: The Buddha and The Gift, “When anger comes knocking – you deny delivery.”
Society wants you to feel bad about everything. When you in fact have your stuff together, they post fake pictures of children suffering in Syria in order to play your emotions their way. Deny delivery.
If you see a child suffering on your way to the grocery shop – deliver your empathy.
Only when we step out of emotion are we in our own mind and not the mind of others. When we pass these realms we are free to pick up any emotion we would like, to reclaim it and let it out. It is the Heart of the Warrior, Social Indignation, for the people and circumstances that you feel are right for you to interact with on a higher emotional level than you have ever done before.
What you have learned, by crossing these bridges, is that you are in charge, you did not go cold, you are now in a situation where you master your emotions.
It is called Intelligent Love.
Not by the framework in the brain, no, no. But the sacred intelligence of the heart.
Dear fellow traveler – you are indeed on the way home.
Passing the Bridge of Golden Sighs, you have to go deeper now and as in the name I have chosen for this bridge, each thing we cast away comes with a hint of sorrow, a hint of leaving, a hint of longing back, yes I said that, since life for a lot seemed easier when it could be lived in Willful Ignorance, and the bypassing pain of: The Pathway from Which There is no Return. You become very aware of that, and if you are not cut out for that, maybe wait with crossing it, since there will be no one by your side.
It is just you and your inner guide and the pull of the deeper realms of the heart/soul.
There are non-biological beings there to support you, angelic or beings of the Light. Angels don’t dig sticky New Age that much, so if you’re into the ‘all is Blue and Dandy’, you might be somewhere else than on this bridge. That would be still in the Solar Plexus, which in higher realms has heart-like qualities.
The Angelic beings here are fierce, they see right through the Maya (illusions) and they won’t grant you passage to cross. They are the sentinel beings you will meet as you set out.
Here are some Sighs that you have to exhale and leave for good:
-The childhood grudge telling you that your Life has loved you less. Life cannot love you, if you cannot love life itself.
-Casting away the emotion of longing for death as a ticket out of this world, and an elusive quick fix of any ambition of: If this was a Better Place, I would want to stay. Make it a better place!
-The Lovers grudge, telling you that you loved in vain.
-Leaving mundane ambitions.
-Leaving what you perceive to be the Circumstances of your life that stand / stood in the way of your development as a spiritual being. Nothing did. You just bypassed it and didn’t walk through it.
These are just a few of the Sighs; the list is individual and long. This is: In order to gain we have to lose ourselves.
Happy Walking, since that is where it leads. Some might say: Happy for no reason as you pass, happy in tears. I will say: Happy for all reasons.
Sweet, sweet spiritual freedom. Cross The Bridge of Golden Sighs and Surrender.
And there’s a new bridge on the horizon. Good.
No need to wonder why, it just is so.
