THE GUARDIAN OF THE VOID JOAN PANCOE
“Emptiness is not really empty. Emptiness is full of everything. The ‘everything’ just isn’t manifest.” RAM DASS
In all the great Eastern spiritual traditions—from Tantra and Vedanta, to Taoism and Dzogchen—there’re a multitude of meditation practices for working with death and dying, emptiness, formlessness, inner space and the Void. But in modern Western religions—not so much.
With our bi-annual eclipse season almost upon us, setting the optimal tone and intentions for 2012 is actually beginning NOW. On November 25th there’s a solar eclipse and then on December 10th, the day Uranus stations direct, there’s a total lunar eclipse. This means that all our actions will have especially long-range effects as energies between now and the end of the year are going to be turbo-charged with intensity.

So, in preparation for the kick-off of the next Great Age in the evolution of consciousness—heralded in by the acceleration of galactic, cosmic and planetary energies we’ve all been feeling this year—I’ve decided to focus on sharing my most recent psychic downloads on how to skillfully cope with the coming year while simultaneously cultivating the most inner peace and joy in Being.
In the mass consciousness of the West there’s so much fear around aging, dying and death that it manifests as a resistance to discussing the topic, even within our closest bonds, as well as a dread of dwelling on this theme, even in our most private thoughts. Not only has this avoidance created a deep schism in the mass tone between anxiety bordering on hysteria, on one side, and faith and trust in our eternal nature, on the other—but it’s missing the whole point of what the Earth Game is really all about. (For more on this, please read: LEELA)
Physicists and astronomers have finally caught up with what the ancient seers spoke of: There’s a black hole, or Void, at the Galactic Center of our Universe out of which all forms of life have emerged, from the planets to us—and into which all forms will eventually return.
Here’re some quotes from some of my favorite spiritual teachers which corroborate this view:
From Dzogchen: “Emptiness is the essence of being. It is this emptiness which allows us to manifest. Emptiness is the most salient quality of what we are—it is the ground of being. Energetic being arises from this emptiness as the play of energy, and material being arises from this energy as the play of form.” Ngakpa Chögyam
From Taoism: “The Tao is like the eternal Void: filled with infinite possibilities. Empty yet inexhaustible, it gives birth to infinite worlds.” Lao Tzu
And from Tantra: Consciousness permeates everything—from a grain of sand to every cell in our bodies—from inner space to outer space to the infinite Void.
Physicists say that the Universe is made up of energy that’s never lost, it just keeps changing form. But Tantrikas take it a step further and say that: All energy is conscious, it’s never lost—it just keeps changing form . . . as do we.
So, now that we’re all, more or less, on the same page on this subject—here’re some suggestions as to how to integrate this view into our personal realities, which will help set the tone for the mass consciousness in the New Age:
I. Cultivating awareness that, as microcosms of the Universe, we all contain within us an inner Void that’s infinite and thus can only be filled by that which is also infinite: Source, the Divine, the Tao, or the Flow of Life.
II. Imagining that, from the perspective of the Void, everything that arises in the 3rd dimension of form can be viewed without judgment as a manifestation of pure co-creative aliveness—in other words, Leela, Divine Play.
III. Maintaining an ever present mindfulness of death and dying as an integral part of life makes each moment that much more precious and poignant in this ephemeral plane of duality.
IV. Owning our true nature as multidimensional Beings having a human experience and always remembering that the Void is the foundation out of which all dimensions continuously arise.
V. Embracing aging gracefully. To the degree that we choose to integrate the above suggestions as part of our spiritual practice===to this degree will we discover how effortlessly enjoyable every leg of our journey can be.
Then, as we savor the delicious wisdom that comes with this view, we can allow our Beings to emanate the tone that “All is Well” at each stage in the dance of life, permeating everything within our sphere of ever-expanding influence.

In closing, here’s one of many Tantric practices that always puts a smile on my face: “Focus on fire rising through your form from the toes up until the body burns to ashes but not You.”
