Our original nature

DAAJI explores the divine feminine and masculine principles in Nature, Prakriti and Purusha, and the importance of honoring and embracing them both as the complementary currents of life.


What was our Original Nature? What were we before we were sent into this adventure? In the beginning there was indescribable and indefinable darkness surrounded by darkness; darkness all around. Space was full of darkness. Imagine if you were to remove all the galaxies, stars and planets from space, would there be light? It would all be empty space in total darkness.

This was the state of perfect balance, and when that balance was disturbed because of the will to create then creation started. So our Original Nature is absolute balance. There is nothing much to describe. That  balance is possible when we remain centripetal, moving towards the Center.

One of the Indian goddesses, Mother Kali, is considered to be the mother of all. She is depicted as absolutely dark and is worshipped like that – as original darkness. Here we see the idea of Kali symbolically reflecting the Original Nature of things before creation.

It was this Original Nature that became the cause when it mingled with Purusha, with the divine masculine principle, and thus creation set in. The Original Nature, Prakriti, the divine feminine principle, was already there. Then the masculine principle, Purusha, came into being and creation was the result of their intermingling.



The Original Nature, Prakriti,
the divine feminine principle,
was already there.
Then the masculine principle,
Purusha, came into being and
creation was the result of their intermingling.
So returning to that Original Nature
is about nurturing feminine qualities in us,
the most important being receptivity.
The energy flow in the feminine
is constantly going inwards.



So returning to that Original Nature is about nurturing feminine qualities in us, the most important being receptivity. The energy flow in the feminine is constantly going inwards. The masculine energy is different. When the current started descending from above, there were the positive and negative, Purusha and Prakriti, the male and female currents. Without this polarity, the currents of creation could not have gone forward, and the flow that was created by this burst is still continuing. Creation has not stopped. The creation of souls still continues. Imagine the billions of souls that have been created at various moments. Will their vibratory patterns be the same? Will the patterns be the same for souls created millions of years ago and those created now? Will they have the same potency?

Another way of looking at it is like this: if you meet someone whose soul has come 100 years after yours, will you easily resonate with them at an energy level? It is just a question, and I am not postulating anything, but those souls that emerge at the same time will have almost the same vibratory pattern. Let’s call them twin souls. Can you imagine that those souls are able to be together more easily without fighting, always being loving towards each other? Actually that is a very limited view of looking at this concept of twin souls. It is a human concept. If we are able to develop a perfect loving nature, then that nature will resonate with every other being across the full spectrum, but for twin souls that were created at the same moment it is very easy to fall in love. They are called soul mates.

So when creation manifested out of the Original Darkness, the original currents went outwards from the Center. Wherever there are stars, we see brightness; brightness is a created thing. We also form the network of our own creation, our individual existence. When we miss the original state of balance, and our thoughts start turning inwards, it is an opposite trend. In meditation, we are going inwards towards the Center. We fold our limbs so that they contract inwards, instead of expanding outwards. In the meditative state there is an enormous state of absorbency inside. We are absolutely focused inside. We are trying to achieve that perfect balance, by sitting properly with the right attitude.

The spiritual journey is back towards our Original Nature, and it is possible when we dissolve our individual network. The universal plan goes on continuously expanding. Our plan is to take an exit and return with greater potency to the Center.
