What crossroads/life stage do you find yourself at that brings you to enneagram work?
Opening Question
"In our time, the Enneagram has appeared as illusory medicine to cure an illusory disease. The disease is the egoic idea of separation. The cure is to look in the wisdom mirror of the Enneagram to see past all false identification to the truth of being."
- Eli Jaxon-Bear
The Truth of Being
"The personal entity,
which identifies its existence with life in the
physical body
and calls itself "I," is the ego.

The physical body,
which is inherently inert, has no ego sense.
The Self, which is pure consciousness, has not ego sense.

Between these two, there mysteriously arises
the ego sense,
which is the "I" thought.

This ego, or separate personal identity,
is at the root of all suffering in life.
Therefore, it is to be destroyed by any means possible.

This is liberation or Enlightenment or Self-realization. "

-Ramana Maharshi
Non-Dual Awareness
The Invitation

It doesn’t interest me
what you do for a living.
I want to know
what you ache for
and if you dare to dream
of meeting your heart’s longing.

It doesn’t interest me
how old you are.
I want to know
if you will risk
looking like a fool
for love
for your dream
for the adventure of being alive.

It doesn’t interest me
what planets are
squaring your moon...
I want to know
if you have touched
the centre of your own sorrow
if you have been opened
by life’s betrayals
or have become shrivelled and closed
from fear of further pain.

I want to know
if you can sit with pain
mine or your own
without moving to hide it
or fade it
or fix it.
by Oriah
I want to know
if you can be with joy
mine or your own
if you can dance with wildness
and let the ecstasy fill you
to the tips of your fingers and toes
without cautioning us
to be careful
to be realistic
to remember the limitations
of being human.

It doesn’t interest me
if the story you are telling me
is true.
I want to know if you can
disappoint another
to be true to yourself.
If you can bear
the accusation of betrayal
and not betray your own soul.
If you can be faithless
and therefore trustworthy.

I want to know if you can see Beauty
even when it is not pretty
every day.
And if you can source your own life
from its presence.

I want to know
if you can live with failure
yours and mine
and still stand at the edge of the lake
and shout to the silver of the full moon,
It doesn’t interest me
to know where you live
or how much money you have.
I want to know if you can get up
after the night of grief and despair
weary and bruised to the bone
and do what needs to be done
to feed the children.

It doesn’t interest me
who you know
or how you came to be here.
I want to know if you will stand
in the centre of the fire
with me
and not shrink back.

It doesn’t interest me
where or what or with whom
you have studied.
I want to know
what sustains you
from the inside
when all else falls away.

I want to know
if you can be alone
with yourself
and if you truly like
the company you keep
in the empty moments.

By Oriah © Mountain Dreaming,
"The Enneagram appears as a wisdom mirror for consciousness to recognize how it has become falsely identified with particular forms. In its subtle depth, the Enneagram reveals patterns of subconscious physical, mental and emotional identification. The core identification is the thought, "I am somebody." Once this thought arises, the ego becomes crystallized in the mind, and consciousness experiences itself as limited."

Structure of Ego (Radical Non-dualism)
Great Chain of Being
is made up of patterns of either conditioned or genetic predispositions, which encounter environmental and social circumstances. The personality involves three main bodies of manifestation - physical, emotional, mental. My story, in which I identify myself is made up of my behaviors, my feelings and my thoughts.
True Character
Character Fixation
"Character is a level deeper than personality. This is where the knot of ego resides. All thoughts, feelings, and behaviors of the personality arise from this core identification. It is at this level that the false sense of "me," which is the root of all unhappiness, can be recognized and transcended."
True character resides at the level of the soul. It is the developed qualities of the soul's essence. True character is developed when one is willing to sacrifice personal pleasure of safety for something more important, to stand for what is known to be true in the face of fears and rationalizations of the character fixation.
True Character
"Soul is consciousness crystallized into a more subtle form. It is the arising of "I" consciousness as an ephemeral body. It is the soul that reincarnates lifetimes after lifetime, searching for fulfillment, happiness and God.
When the soul is not enlightened and is burdened with an egoic identity, it is the storehouse of latent tendencies and unfulfilled desires that take birth in a new body. The soul's identification with the body creates the eqoic knot of character fixation."
True Self
"If souls are like sparks flying out into the infinite night, then true Self is not only the sparks, but also the night, the universe, and the field that the universe arises in. (Pure awareness) The cosmic joke is that the soul is made of that which the soul is searching for: "immortal consciousness." Enlightenment is to realize that who you are essentially is the same immortal consciousness. God, soul and universe are realized as One.

The caring, interpersonal type, Twos are empathetic, sincere, and warm‐hearted. They are friendly, generous, and self‐sacrificing, but they can also be sentimental, flattering and people‐pleasing. They are driven to be close to others, and they often do things for others in order to be needed.

As Parents: Twos usually enjoy their children, like being parents, and encourage their children’s interests. Because they’re so involved, sometimes they do too much for their children instead of allowing the children to make mistakes and learn for themselves.
