Retro 2015-20:Karmic Regressions, Ketu lands 02

In the previous post: I wrote how this current accelerated period of Saturn Retrograde is a period of high Karmic regression, especially through Ketu dominated for me. For none other reason but the fact in prior lives I had abused Ketu energies to a great degree (check earlier post, and illustration: My Ketu Faces). In the vedic mantra to Ketu it reads:

Palasha Pushpa Sankasham Taraka Graham Mastakam Raudram Raudratmakam Ghoram Tam Ketum Pranamamahyam.. meaning. I offer my obeisances to the violent and fearsome Ketu, who is endowed with the potency of Lord Shiva. Resembling in his complexion the flower of a Palasa plant, he serves as the head of the stars and planets..
It's like passing through a volatile marsh full of great fluctuations. Like the inter phase between mitosis and meiosis of cell division? Between beginnings and ends? A grey zone of extreme stagnation, yet extreme volatility. Is this the Grey zone of Ketu from which the universe arose? Generally, whenever we imagine existence before creation, before the big bang, I visualize a space of empty, black nothingness. But as Slavoz Zizek says in his book The Indivisible Remainder, that empty, black nothingness was not the preceding state before creation, BUT rather, a grey ambivalence,  a grey full of turbulent flux, of the real and unreal, of existence and non existence, of pure stagnation and chaotic movement. A grey flux full of turbulent primal drives! In his book, Zizek talks about Schelling who talks about the beginning of the universe: ...Prior to the creation of the world, there is the chaotic, psychotic universe of blind drives. Their rotary motion, their undifferentiated pulsating. And the World is created when the word is pronounced which represses/ negates, this self enclose circuit, this vortex of primal drives..
As creation of the universe commenced, this grey undifferentiated pulsating vortex, began to divide into darker blacks, and brighter whites, the yins and yangs, regulated stillness and movement, cause and effects that govern our dynamic moving universe. Prash Trivedi in his book on Rahu Ketu, connects Ketu  to the first ray of creation. And this ray must have definitely arisen from this smokey greyness of flotsam and jetsam, a state of terrible uproar and yet unimaginable stagnation. The mother goddess of Ketu is Dhumavati, the smoky one, who represents the void that existed before creation started. She represents the backdrop of the universe itself. And, today I realise that this primordial void, that existed before the universe was not black and empty, but rather a violent, turbulent, smoky grey, a grey full of turbulent flux full of turbulent primal drives. The heart of Ketu. The cosmic uncertainty of the universe. the indivisible remainder!!

Anyways, on the personal front, the dehydration that I'm experiencing seems to be reducing, but ver very slowly, as indicated by the gihly energy clearing regression of this phase.

This is an extremely well written piece Adim. I wonder which book you were reading when you were inspired to write this? Or was it poetry? :) really well written.
