The raw Gaia Portal update is first, followed by my extrapolated meanings in black.
Collectives of Light gather.
Required Sentients are called.
Seasons of change combine to one.
Life forms entreat the Cosmic Light.
I do not have an insider or direct source for the meanings below. This is my interpretation of the update, based on extrapolation and contextual usage of the terms. The meanings provided are not the only ones that can be gleaned; in my view, all meanings have value, especially when shared and discussed openly. Please comment below if interested, I’d love to hear other’s thoughts on this material.
Interpretations: “Collectives of Light gather.” – A collective is a gathering of people or beings usually for some purpose, working, or task. The type of collective referenced here is a collective of Light. The term light is often symbolically representative of true knowledge or wisdom. A being of light would be an individual who has transcended their selfish separate self (the ego gone mad); one who has started to realize the universal self; one who entered into a contract, covenant or enterprise with the creator. This can also be described as enlightenment or the first steps in attaining of the higher self.
“Required Sentients are called.” – The term sentient refers to the ability to perceive or become aware of things via feeling or sensation, direct perception. Here the statement says there are required sentients, suggesting that whatever the aforementioned light beings are gathering for requires awareness to realize. Speaking more generally, the things we manifest in life without awareness could be of benefit to us, but it is only when we become fully conscious of what we are creating that empowerment is developed. For example, someone who has never cooked a meal before could mix a bunch of ingredients together and make a good dish, but their ability to reproduce the same result consistently will be almost impossible without knowledge (awareness) of what they were doing. And before knowledge can be developed, the will must focus attention on the proper things in experience so as to increase sentience of them. In other words, the act of applying consciousness to build knowledge is the act of making direct contact with experience via sensation. Unlike abstract knowledge, which is representative of direct experience, sentients are like our own personal scientific read-out of a person, place or thing; idea, emotion or sensation.
“Seasons of change combine to one.” – Seasons are cyclic periods of time marked by longer or shorter daylight hours. The concept of a season refers to the hermetic Principle of Rhythm, the expression of vibrating objects as they polarize in time. Anything in cyclic motion is also polarizing, moving from a higher to a lower position. This statement could be suggesting that this time of polarization may be coming to an end, as a unification of opposites proceeds into oneness. For example, if one moves a pendulum to the highest position and lets it go, the weight will cycle back and forth until all the energy has been expended. At this point, the pendulum is at rest, and no motion takes place. A season of change can be thought of as spiritual progress developed as a function of unconsciousness. Instead of focusing on the spiritual plan of creation, and gaining the most empowerment in the least amount of time, if we focus on material realities, life distractions, and the drama of our ego, we swing back and forth with great turbulence (emotional energy), experiencing intense seasons of change. But when the eye be single the whole body shall be filled with light. Meaning when we stop focusing on material distractions that lose their savor quickly; when we stop drinking from the cup of death and drink from the cup of life, we no longer thirst or hunger; we don’t experience seasons of longing, scarcity, and lack. I suggest this statement is referring to that process of focusing on the spiritual plan of creation, something that the universe works tirelessly to present to us, yet can only be seen via a genuine desire to make direct contact with the ALL, to seek the truth in all ways, to be sentient of the source.
“Life forms entreat the Cosmic Light.” – The term entreat refers to the act of asking someone to do something with earnestness, genuineness, or intensity. Given the aforementioned discussion about genuinely seeking to make contact with source via sentients, and that the term light refers to a high level of spiritual attainment, true knowledge or wisdom, this statement seems to be suggesting that those beings whose seasons of change are combining into one are making a direct appeal to the creator. Again, the covenant of the creator is the promise to the creature to support them in a universal scheme of spiritual progress, to be as perfect as the creator, within our spheres of influence and activity. But this is not a passive unconscious process, the creator is all-knowing and omniscient (feels all), and as such in order to step into divine destiny one must choose it with all their beingness; there are no half measures when it comes to the creator.
“The initiate must travel, with determination, along the Path of the Razor’s Edge. There are terrifying abysses on either side of this difficult road. On the difficult path to the dissolution of the ego, there are complex passages which have their roots precisely in the real path. Obviously, from the Path of the Razor’s Edge multiple paths diverge which lead nowhere. Some of them take us to the abyss and despair. There are paths which can transform us into the majesties of this or that zone of the universe. However, they can never return us to the bosom of the Eternal Universal Cosmic Father. There are fascinating paths of a most holy, ineffable appearance; unfortunately, they can only lead us into the submerged devolution of the infernal worlds. In the work of the dissolution of the “I,” we need to devote ourselves completely to the Innermost Christ. At times problems appear which are difficult to resolve. Suddenly the path is lost in inexplicable labyrinths and we do not know where it continues. Only absolute obedience to the Innermost Christ and the Father who is in secret can, in such instances, wisely guide us. The Path of the Razor’s Edge is full of danger, both inside and out.” – Samael Aun Weor, The Great Rebellion (emphasis added) Source
