THE TONTI/ALONTI PURPOSE IN OUR LIVES
The following quotation expresses Swiss psychologist Carl G. Jung’s concept of Individuation —unification of the two poles of being within each one of us. It amplifies left/right brain differences that delineate male-female consciousness.
The anima is a personification of all feminine psychological tendencies in a man’s psyche, such as vague feelings and moods, prophetic hunches, receptiveness to the irrational, capacity for personal love, feeling for nature, and—last but not least—his relation to the unconscious
It is the presence of the anima that causes a man to fall suddenly in love when he sees a woman for the first time and knows at once that this is ‘she.’ .The secret aim of the unconscious is to force a man to develop and to bring his own being to maturity by integrating more of his unconscious personality and bringing it into his real life.
Our problem today is that the inner poles are not generally recognized as an inner power. One that has become negative, reflecting our lack of understanding of this stage of mankind’s evolvement and creating a rise in transexual and homosexual experiences. This aspect of the anima’s influence can be compared to the Sirens of mythology who lured men to their death by promising much; then delivering nothing.
If this stage of growth is understood and allowed to mature as intended, the anima/alonti within can actually prepare a man for the right woman and a fulfilling relationship. Likewise, the animus/tonti can pepare woman for the right man relationship. Then balanced individuals enter a relationship that will not be based on lack each expects the other to supply. In spiritual terms their power to manifest as love directs, in perect harmony with this great creative force, is not only doubled but quadrupled.
Such relationships are lacking in our world because we do not understand the necessity of balanced poles within each partner before fulfillment can be realized.
Woman experiences development of her masculine or left-brain qualities and attitudes by contacting and connecting to Tonti —the masculine principle of God — her male within. She can then utilize these logical qualities in her female expression for balance.
Man experiences development of his feminine or right-brain qualities and attitudes by contacting and connecting Alonti — the feminine principle of God — to his female within, and can thus utilize these qualities in his male expression to achieve balance.
Now the true joining of man and woman can take place since both inner and outer poles are developed and individual balance is achieved, resulting in a far deeper and more compatible relationship.
Many are experiencing the awakening of their inner pole, and without understanding its true purpose are resorting to homosexual relationships that create problems and disappointment.
Realize this distinction. The Love force, for example, can be experienced/shared in same sex relationships. But when you include the force we call sex, problems arise because this great creative force is not designed to express except in balance through nature’s two natural poles of expression. Otherwise, control is forfeited and negative results are experienced.
We need a deeper and different understanding to help us traverse this evolutionary step that is accomplishing individual balance as preparation for true mating and expression of more of our original unity.
The terms Tonti given as my connection to the divine masculine principle and Alonti as the divine feminine principle for man signify our eternal mates.
Incidentally, both Tonti and Alonti become totally and delightfully personal.
