Colorful Teardrops II.; The Fruit Of The Tree Of Knowledge

"Colorful Teardrops" is a term coined to refer to the sparks of light (/realization) that deliver an individual to an enlightened perception. These are  the hard lessons learned through the shattering of false paradigms, the breaking of limited constructs through driven by the  pangs of intense existential suffering.
Colorful Teardrops is a befitting name because tears produced by existential suffering are sacred tears. These tears cleanse a heart into pure intention and shed deliverance. In there flow, a soul bathes in the clarity of increased revelation. The sanctity of this clarity allows one to witness  grace within all things.

Each limited paradigm of reality embraced by an individual is reminiscent of a color or energetic tint. These are the limited sefiot of perception. Being partial to a particulate energetic stream has the effecting of distorting perception and deconstructing the portal to the true reality; the Tree of Life. 
The mystics called the confirmation bias that one operates under while experiencing their reality "constricted consciousness". When you embrace the limited paradigm of a specific energetic expression you hinder a realization of the greater synergy at work through the spirit of the greater totality, the creative gestalt. Examples of such distortions could progress as follows:
•  Someone who is freedom oriented will without a balanced perception pursue freedom at the expense of others. 
•  Someone who is fuelled on by a narrative of victimhood will draw on creative inspiration from endurance that is co-dependant on narratives of conflict and drama.
• Someone partial to viewing reality through creative expressions of restraint and discipline will be unable to properly honour acts and expressions of true kindness.
• Someone who is very results oriented will be unable to properly value potential and the process of creative expression.
These are just a sampling for  how such energetic paradigms distort awareness.

The light of the Creator is a singular united expression. It is a fusion of all the colors  like pure white light. It is a synthesis of all the abstract creative expressions that collaborate upon the canvas of creation. Like white light that is cut into spectrum of color through a divided prism, these all initially projected out from singularity upon abstract teirs to render a canvas for increasingly diverse expression, and thereby, greater authenticity for evolving consciousness. 

Upon this creative canvas, the Creator's will is divided into creative  sectors that jostle for overall prominence. On a micro level this process confounds aligned awareness. A practical example would be if someone tries to view the world through red coloured glasses. Their world become distorted as it would mute or adulterate the vitality of the other colours in the arena of perception. Blue would be seen as purple, yellow as orange, green as brown, pink as red etc. Each limited energetic paradigm that you embrace has the effect of distorting the true reality of the roles of other energetic expressions at play. This limits your ability to grow to realizations that are of an eternal perspective; the Tree of Life. 

The mystics explain that as you go through the discipline of aligning your awareness, you trigger higher states of consciousness that enable you to comment with the united flow of divinity extending from the Creator.

As a harmonized vision is restored, the spiritual adherent attains an uncompromising lens of consciousness and thereby grows increasingly aware of higher synergies and the underlying unity behind all creation. This higher level of heightened awareness is called by the Jewish mystics as "bonding with the Higher Light" or the acquiring of a Greater Soul of awareness to  readily access true reality on an energetic level of foundational architecture. The mystics called this the path of Tree of Life consciousness or the emergence to True Reality.

Higher Light is seen my the mystics as an benevolent expression of the  sum total of all there is. This construct for perceiving the the Creator and creation is a discipline of gradually embracing the "lost sparks of divinity" operating through all diversity. complete and harmonized spectrum of colors.

The lessons gathered through existential suffering, are akin to the light of the balanced totality beckoning the individual's perception forward by breaking through the obfuscation of misaligned constructs. As the spiritual adherent advances their perception is gradually balanced and freed to recognize the Creator on increasingly more intimate levels.

Each time you advance your perception beyond the dominion of distortions from a particular (/energy frequency/ sephira colour) paradigm, your ego  will surface to over-compensate for the new awareness and cause a new mis-calibration. This works as an impediment to  harmonizing perception in balance with the full unity of the Creator. You receive just a glimpse of the underlying unity and the synergies of a heightened state. But it turns into a fleeting instant. As a byproduct of the new influx of realization, you become fixated with the newly introduced color (energy) perception. This results in overcompensating in ways that again restrict overall perception to the unified processes behind creation. 

This compromising again triggers another round of lessons from the greater spirit of benevolent unity underlying all of creation. It seeks to humble awareness so that it may again reunite with spiritual adherent on a level of intimate awareness.
And so existential suffering again arises to rent the ego and rescue awareness from its' previously distorted paradigm. And so these "colourful teardrops" are shed to realign your awareness to  a heightened  perception of the underlying unity behind all things. As you expand to operate from a clear lens of perception (/"espeklaryah m'erah") you release the vast recesses of your soul's intimacy to extend through greater divinity.

The actual healing and correction of a soul consciousness is delivered through the embracing of existential suffering through the underlying intimate yearnings through which it was sent. This is called m'kabel yesurim b'ahavah; the obtaining a truer love through the graduation from existential suffering. As the individual graduates to greater levels of love, they begin to process all of creation with a grace on unconditional terms. This unconditionality extended to self and the rest of creation will equalize the ego's reactivity and drive for personal conquest. This inverts the momentum of ego into a force for expanding to the unbounded intimacy extending through all of creative existence; the heartbeat of the Tree of Life.

Each distortion corrected through lessons of existential suffering is akin to sacred tears produced by breaking free from the dominion of repressed perception. Thus, the spiritual adherent's perception expands to encompass the harmony of the unified totality of the Creator. This is the awareness of the full spectrum of primordial benevolent expression behind all of  creation that the mystics called "Ohr Ha'Ganuz", the hidden light of pre-dating creation.

These "Colorful Teardrops" redeem the dualistic existential lessons of the spirit submerged in Tree of Knowledge. The adherent graduates to simplified and intense benevolent awareness of creation as being driven by the beckoning of the Creator's intimacy.
