The Roman Catholic Church knows a thing or two about spiritual communion. In fact, Southern Baptists, like Billy Graham (and now through his son, Franklin) say essentially the same thing: “Invite Jesus to come into your heart.” I did this at age 9 at a Baptist Summer Camp…
Here is a form of words that you can use:
Remember to say these words with humility.
Whitley Strieber’s True Communion (October 16, 2019)
This will be my last post about Strieber’s latest book “A New World”. Since he is so good at documenting dates and time, I know this chart is real. And I wasn’t surprised to see a Yod pointing at the Moon, from inconjuncts to the Sun and Jupiter. How appropriate!
There are two other inconjuncts, involving Saturn and the Midheaven and Mars and Uranus.
And Neptune is on the Descendant in Pisces.
Sun Inconjunct Moon
This aspect suggests that there is a subtle conflict going on inside you that many sometimes create emotional problems. The Sun signifies your conscious personality, the way in which you act and the kinds of activities that you like to get involved in. The moon signifies the emotional and less conscious side of you. It indicates the habits that take over when you are not acting consciously and feelings that come up from deep inside you. The inconjunct aspect between the Sun and Moon means that the Sun part of your personality is quite different from the Moon part, and it may be hard for you to relate them to each other. It is as if you are divided in two, so that whenever you have to make an important decision, especially one that involves your feelings, the different sides of your personality want to go in opposite directions. You sometimes find it difficult to decide if you like something or if you want to take part in some activity.
Moon Inconjunct Jupiter
This aspect indicates that you have a positive, optimistic outlook on life, and you enjoy socializing with good friends. However, there are some dangers with this aspect. First, it can be a sign that you are self-indulgent and possibly selfish, although this is not likely to happen if you have a good, strong relationship with your mother. You have a great need to be cared for and supported, to be accepted for what you are with no strings attached. If this need is fulfilled, the positive side of this aspect will flourish. But if your mother does not support your needs fully, you will feel insecure and will look elsewhere for support and fulfillment. In this case your concern will be totally for yourself with little thought for other people’s needs.
Then I saw a woman with a lovely, sweet face. I couldn’t tell if they were physical or not. I did not seem to be dreaming, but they were also not plainly standing beside the bed. They were in a place that will, I suspect, become more familiar as we go deeper into communion, which is the quintessential “dangerous perhaps,” the uneasy edge between our ordinary world and the greater mystery in which it is embedded. The woman seemed at once a stranger and yet also very familiar to me, and seeing her inspired a poignant sense of memory. I asked her, “How long have you known me?” She replied, “Since you were born.”Strieber, Whitley. A New World (pp. 222-223). Walker & Collier, Inc.. Kindle Edition.
And her, what of her? All in white, she stood, a girl like a drop of sunlight, a young mother I thought, and I felt her as a mother. But she cannot be mine. In those few minutes, I was under the water of life, in a place that communion must inevitably take us, where our demons and angels dance together, sweetly singing and beckoning us to walk the cliffs of knowledge, ever closer to the edge.Strieber, Whitley.
