Gathering Together

The image of Gathering Together describes, as you might guess, situations in which people gather together. More to the point, it describes the principles on which good and healthy gatherings are predicated. Not every gathering together is a good one, as the image clearly discloses. Thus, in one of the verse, that is highlighted specifically for you by today’s Reading from the image of Gathering Together, the oracle says, “Gathering together amid sighs. Nothing that would further. Going is without blame. Slight humiliation.”

This verse describes precisely that aspect of the image in which loneliness is encountered, and so it is worth considering how loneliness very often leads to impatience in matters of love. It is not easy to be alone when Nature herself is calling out for the blissful satisfactions of gathering together. You are at that time of life when these feelings are very great indeed. The trouble is, however, that these feelings can exhaust the spirit, causing a certain kind of weakness sets in. Desire gets the upper-hand over insight and foresight, and the results are often needless entanglement. You know how this works of course.

But in the other verse that is highlighted specifically for you by today’s Reading from the image of Gathering Together, the oracle says, “If in gathering together one has position, this brings no blame. If there are some who are not yet sincerely in the work, sublime and enduring perseverance is needed. Then remorse disappears.” You see, the basis of your feelings are what the oracle calls “position.” You are, as I have said, in the position of being in the prime of life and full of love. There is no blame, says the oracle, in the feelings that are roused in you by your new friend. But more than merely natural compatibility is required for the kind of gathering together that you are seeking, and which, I should add, you are destined to find.

Then, the oracle tells you that someone is “not yet in the work.” In other words, “it takes two to tango,” and you haven’t met your true and best tango partner YET. That is why “sublime and enduring perseverance is needed.” You need to be strong to have such perseverance and patience. And, above all, you have to use strength “to control weakness.”
