In her unique and inspiring way Shakti Caterina Maggi points us to our divinity, and takes questions from the audience at SAND 18. "It is not a person that is waking up," she says, "it is consciousness. It is a beautiful journey, and that is why you took human form. It is an incredible privilege to have a human form, an incredible miracle—something that has no form, no qualities whatsoever, expressing as human."
Life is the embodiment of Consciousness. Therefore, everything we experience reflects our knowledge or ignorance of our true nature. Awakening is concretely manifested in and as our everyday life. In this integration, traditionally called “enlightenment”, Emptiness is expressed in form without being filtered through a sense of separate self. The ego-based mind should not take this as a goal of perfection, but rather as the impossible and precious meeting of that which is already perfect with the apparent limitations of space, time, matter, error, and death. God becomes human while remaining Divine. The unmanifested Divine journeys through the miracle of the manifested, living experience. As T. S. Elliot put it, “We shall not cease from exploration. And the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time.” The “we” to which he refers is the Divine itself. There are not many souls looking for God, but one Divine Consciousness awakening to itself through all forms, and in doing so, playing in the polarities of life - death and birth, error and wisdom, happiness and suffering. The Divine exploration of embodied life is not a descent or a fall, but rather a blossoming of unmanifest Emptiness into greater Fullness. Becoming human is therefore the sublime participation in the impulse of the Divine to become a Living Reality.
