Allurement is the primal power of “attraction” which is seen (as are all the owers) in all levels of the universe. We are especially fond of this power because it demonstrates how we must be careful not to succumb to anthropomorphism when we describe examples of “universal intent”. Let us give you an example of how we avoid anthropomorphism by describing Allurement first on the universal level.
Allurement can be seen on the largest scale when we look at the gravitational interaction that holds the entire universe together. Gravity is something that is experienced by the largest galaxy and the smallest of Earth’s creatures…it connects every single thing together in the entire cosmos. In a sense, gravity (universal Allurement) is the most primal, the most primordial, of all the powers. There is absolutely nothing “beneath” it. There is nothing deeper that you can use to describe gravity. It is “revelatory”, in that it is “revealing” the nature of the universe “just as it is”. We can describe the effects of gravity, we can predict the paths of stars and planets with our measurements of gravity, but we have no real idea what is “behind” it, or “underneath” it to cause it to exist. It is one of the most fundamental aspects of the Ultimate Mystery, and is one in which we can feel every moment of our lives.
You can witness the Allurement of the Ultimate Mystery when you see galaxies rotating about each other. You can see it in the interaction between our sun and planet. You can see Allurement when the plants of this Earth discovered the sun and created a deep, bonded relationship with it via the process of photosynthesis in which they delicately capture the pieces of the sun that hit them, and turn it into nourishment. You can see it in human coupling as we fall in love with things and people. You can see it on the atomic level in which all the particles of atoms are held and bound together.
Thus, you can see that Allurement at the level of the universe is gravity. Allurement at the level of the planet can be seen in photosynthesis. Allurement can be seen on the atomic level via the electromagnetic forces that enable atoms to exist. And Allurement at the level of the human is love.
We can especially see this fundamental, deep attraction in the human when we’re completed captivated by something. We are totally captivated and then we pursue it. In the pursuit, things awaken within us that we often did not ever know were there…just waiting to be unlocked. We become so immersed and captivated that we begin to draw others into our pursuit and they in turn are captivated. Our pursuit of some kind of beauty has aligned so fully with the Allurement of the universe that we become part of the whole field of Allurement itself. This is what we have described elsewhere as “becoming Allurement itself” …this being our fullest destiny as humans…our highest purpose.
Our task is to enable Allurement to unfurl in conscious self-awareness. The universe houses these energies within us due to a 13.7 billion year developmental process. We have the unbelievable gift of being a place where Allurement can be focused inside the human body. We simply have to begin to understand that we are not in charge of Allurement, but Allurement is in charge of us, and its energies will flow through us if we allow it and align ourselves with it. We need to recognize that the same power that drew together the galaxies and stars is the same power that is at work within us. It’s bursting forth from so many people, and it will naturally burst forth of its own accord from our personal conscious self-awareness, if we simply permit it to do so. The first step is to remove the obstacles that prevent it from manifesting in our personal existence. You need to remove your personal negativities, as was the focus of the first three parts of this book. When you can become a loving person, you can begin to use the process of allowing and aligning with any of the 10 powers. Again, that specific method of aligning with the powers is given at the end of this part of the book. For now, just realize that the first step is to remove the obstacles to being an agent of any or all of the 10 universal powers.
Next, realize that whatever you’re deeply attracted to when you’re acting out of the deepest part of your personal psyche (the Deeper You as described earlier in this book) is what you can more readily work with to become an active channel for the energies of Allurement. The trick is to remove the top layers of mental noise and confusion, so that you can examine (in Stillness) those things that hold for you the deepest Allurement. At that point, you can develop a deep adoration that enables the very essence (spirit) of who you are to become intimately molded by that which you love. This is called the task of adoration and mutual evocation…that which you adore, and that which you bond with, will serve to evoke miracles both in yourself and in the object of your adoration. This is most easily seen in the deepest of human bonded relationships …especially in the relationship between parent and child.
What types of people tend to most easily align themselves with the power of Allurement? The first quality would be a sort of deep sensitivity. Love can be a very wounding experience, and such traumas can cause people to put up shields and barriers. A person who aligns closely with Allurement makes a conscious effort to reduce the “thickness” of such shields so as not to prevent the power from continuing to flow through them. If our shields are too strong, if our guard is too high, we close down that aspect of ourselves and exist in a reduced mode of being. An Allurement-type person bounces back from emotionally wounds and leaves themselves open to experience love again and again and again.
Another quality of this type of person would be an intense desire to merge and commune with others. They simply love to become absorbed in the lives of other people. They have a deep desire to be a presence of good, and a presence of joy. There is a deep desire to evoke depths of feeling and well-being within others.
Such a person has a passionate absorption in the world, and in others. They absorb themselves in the moods of others as well. Because of this deep absorption, they can often have a very wide spectrum of feelings, and a capacity to become overwhelmed in situations that may seem trivial to others…they are deeply emotional people.
These kinds of people are sensitive to beauty in all its forms. Then tend to be drawn in and immersed in things…simply swept away at times into the beauty and energies of the universe.
People that are especially skilled moving within Allurement will often have very stormy and passionate relationships, and they have a huge capacity to see the magnificence in every situation the find themselves in.
Such people allow themselves, by releasing themselves into the field of their own Allurement, to move towards those things that draw them most deeply. They move in pursuit of beauties that ignite beauties within themselves, and thus serve to ignite the beauties in others via a mutually evoked communion.
