Gate 6: THE GATE OF FRICTION
is the most complex gate of the Solar Plexus and the most difficult in
terms of finding the awareness within the wave. Not only is it a
powerful motor with the energy for producing life itself but it also
contains the awareness possibilities of all three Streams of Emotional
awareness; Feeling, Emoting, and Sensitivity.
the 50th gate is the awareness of our Personal Defense Reflex, Conflict
is our evolved Genetic Defense Reflex. There is no survival for
Humanity unless it continues to reproduce. From the perspective of our
genes, this is our only purpose, to maintain and continue the genetic
pool. Gate 6 is where the energy originates for the emotions of the Emotional Solar Plexus Center (this is reflected on the other side of the Defense Tribal Circuit in Gate 50, where Gate 50 is where the awareness originates for the Splenic Center).
our biology, the 6th gate is associated with our PH balance. It is PH
that keeps our outside/outside and our inside/inside. It establishes the
boundary of the body. Throughout most of our history, this has been a
possibility of awareness in this gate could transform the nature of all
of Humanities intimacy. Who is in and who is out, who can penetrate or
be penetrated is the work of this gate. However, as an energy, and this
is its general state, it always confines intimacy to a hope and pain
