The Mother Mantra
Mother Mantra for a free and fulfilled life
For any esoteric path, journey of self-development or personal growth, alchemy or depth psychology to be truly effective, it must harbour in its core the extraordinary key to the reabsorption of reality. Also shamanism, yoga, tantric Buddhism, Christian Gnosticism, the cabala, Sufism, the esoteric religions are all founded on the same key, the same procedure: the “reabsorption of reality”, sometimes also defined as the “withdrawal of projections”. For the above reason, the process of withdrawing of projections is considered “the means”. It is indeed the means to a free and fulfilled life. It is, actually, a very simple means; so simple indeed that the difficulty in achieving and using it lies only in one’s ability to deconstruct oneself, in order to tap into this extremely simple and natural means. Society and the institutions, being themselves structures, are always in opposition to deconstruction. Thus, from ancient times this means has always travelled non-conventional routes, far from the institutions. The Mother Mantra is by far the tradition which best expresses this means in its purest and most original form, with no superstructures .It has travelled the routes of tantric-shamanic yoga and alchemy for many centuries now, both in the East and West.
The MM refers to a very ancient knowledge. At the same time though, it is so subtle that it adapts to the imaginal traditions of various populations. There is undoubtedly a Western imaginal tradition and an Eastern imaginal tradition and they differ. In depth psychology, the imaginal tradition refers to the complexity of images, myths and rites on which a culture is founded. The MM has the power of being universal, yet at the same time adapts perfectly well to the culture of the practitioner. Universality implies that it is for any and everyone , regardless of religion, ethnics or culture.
Beauty is the soul of nature. Everything in nature moves towards beauty. What could be more beautiful than giving oneself? Giving oneself is the purest expression of beauty. In nature everything gives itself. The Greek philosopher Heraclitus said you cannot bathe in the same river twice. The second time the river has already given itself and no longer exists, for another river has taken its place. In nature everything gives itself, everything is evanescent, a shadow, a mirage which appears and immediately disappears. Everything is impermanent. Impermanence is the main trait of nature. Why ever should nature give itself, if not for love? Beauty is the natural state, which is impermanence, love, giving. Nature has its laws, which do not discriminate the opposites (good, evil, right, wrong, true, false…). They are laws of harmony, of rhythm. Beauty is also a state of sameness, of complexity and instantaneity.
