𝍑𝌄 Silver Stars 18 AM (November 28 AM) – “Lʊkiŋ” (Jai’ai)
The Unified Zones of Yin at the Collective Objective Quadrant of the 9th-Person Perspective
The Yin Master at the Seat of Goodness at The Throne of Light at the Letter of Lightening
Origin (English) looking: turn one’s eyes toward someone or something; peruse; investigate.
“The minute I heard my first love story, I started looking for you, not knowing how blind that was. Lovers don’t finally meet somewhere. They’re in each other all along.” – Rumi
In the morning of Silver Stars 18, the Line draws the gaze to Look in its specified direction. The Lovers are no longer merely in proximity to the other or holding each other in regard, but investigating the other through a close inspection. Grammatically speaking, Looking is a coupling verb which links its subject to its complement, as in “She looked attractive.”
The Kmer word លក់ (pronounced Lʊək) also appears at this station. It means to sell, to fine (legally), or to be asleep. If this is the indicated word at this station, Lʊək may represent the propensity to go out of the spirit (as the subtle body wanders in a dream), or as money leaves the pocket to pay a fine. So there is a subtle connotation of this station of leaving – in soul or even an outward gaze – the self, in exchange for something else.
In the Third Column, the Yang is Together and the Yin is Oʒaaki (the Georgian word for Family). These words may be viewed as a progression of states of attachment or complementarity beginning with co-arising at Yang, followed by intermingling at Yin, and then attachment through vision at Yung.
At the Third Tier, the Yang is Nook, a corner or recess, and the Yin is Hook, a thing to catch someone’s attention. Combined in a manner with the Yung of Look, one’s attention, stemming from a nook of regarding, has been caught.
At this station, Light is not merely an observed phenomenon, but the Observer. Apparently inert, it is part of the exchange of Existence, a catcher of attention and the caught.
𝍑𝌅 Silver Stars 18 PM (November 28 PM) – “Lʊrɪd” (Jai’ai)
The Unified Zones of Yung at the Collective Objective Quadrant of the 9th-Person Perspective
The Yung Master at the Seat of Goodness at The Throne of Light at the Letter of Lightening
Origin (English) lurid: very vivid in color, unpleasantly or unnaturally so; vividly shocking or sensational; terrible in intensity, passion, or release.
At the ultimate station in the Throne of Light, Light acts as Lure. The Lure brings together the Line-of-sight and the Looking into a single object. It attracts, entices, and allures… perhaps as a decoy, for Light can be used for purposes of distraction or entrapment. At this station, the Lovers Lure each other through shocking sexuality or violence.
What’s more, the colors of Light may now appear as Lurid – shocking, wild, vivid to the point of causing nausea. Light may stir feelings now of fear or revulsion, appearing in unnatural and disturbing combinations.
What is happening now, as Light itself seems to manifest internal contradictions within itself? Swahili has another word for this station: Uwaazi, which means Openness. It is as if Light is now shocking us into looking at disowned or hidden aspects of reality that are unpleasant. Light is not a pacifier, but a prophet calling us to see the ghastly in a new way. It prompts the action of Lurching.
The Chinese verb 籠罩 (pronounced Lʊŋčau) appears at this station – defined as to envelop; to shroud; to cover. Lʊŋčau is a common human response to seeing the Lurid or disturbing.
In the Third Column, Lurid is the Yung which brings together the Yang of Tiring with the Yin of the Child. Time is decaying; parents are aging, begetting children who have not yet matured; Lurid sights and sounds excite attraction, signs of the decay of Light itself in phantasmagoric phenomena.
