Toward a Higher Fidelity
Yechida - Unicity
The Hebraic mystical literature describes a 5th level of human soul development where a human soul begins to merge with its Divine Source. That level is called yechida or “Unicity.” Unicity calls upon each individual to look in the mirror, recognize and align with a Higher Fidelity by taking responsibility for the unfoldment of their own Intrinsic Divinity and the seeding of life with that unique Divine Essence.
Unicity is expressed as a twelvefold form around one, the central “one” is an eternal flame - our pilot light. Each element of the unfolding geometry is a jewel in the making.
The mirror encased in the palmate form at the top makes this illumination a self-portrait for anyone to see their true essence and the worthiness of committing to its unfoldment.
After completing this work I was presented with this remarkably resonate excerpt from Sri Aurobindo’s Canto III Book 1 of The Yoga of the Soul’s Release:
... All here must learn to obey a higher law,
Our body’s cells must hold the Immortal’s flame.
Else would the spirit reach alone its source
Leaving a half-saved world to its dubious fate.
Nature would ever labour unredeemed;
Our Earth would ever spin unhelped in Space
and this immense creation’s purpose fail
Till at last the frustrate universe sank undone.
