What is Macrocosm Pearl?

Diamond Approach Teachings About: Macrocosm Pearl

A Personal Macrocosm, an Infinite Boundless Field with no Shape or Form

The personal wholeness of Being is an integration of all the dimensions of Reality in an individuated or personal way. Therefore it is a cosmic pearl. Since it integrates all aspects and dimensions of true nature it is a diamond cosmic pearl. Since it also integrates these with all the manifest forms of reality, we refer to it as the macrocosm pearl. The macrocosm pearl is not simply the macrocosm, which is the wholeness of Being, Reality with all dimensions and forms coemergent in it. It is a personal macrocosm, a personal God. The macrocosm pearl possesses more structure than the macrocosm, or impersonal Being. This is parallel to how the soul is initially structureless, but develops into the pearl beyond price, which structures it into a real functioning person. The form of personal essence is a luminous white pearl of presence. However, the macrocosm pearl is not exactly a pearl the way the personal essence is. It is not a form, not a rounded presence. It possesses the pearly luminosity and texture of the personal essence, as well as the faceted crystalline quality of diamonds, but it is an infinite, boundless field with no shape or form. It has the feeling of individuated totality, and the sense of coherent functioning, as if it is a functioning unit, but it is not a unit amongst other units. It is simply a functional wholeness with a personal and self-organizing quality
