Excerpt About Jackal
Jackal - Negative MergingThis Beast structure is connected with another primitive structure in the soul which results from frustration about early nourishment and love; this structure we call the Jackal and it has to do with the experience of negative merging (see Chapter 20, The Pearl Beyond Price, Almaas, 1988). The Jackal state is a more animal-like sense in which the quality of the soul is deep suffering, burning frustration, and aggression. When this is happening, you are experiencing the actual negativity in the soul that appeared partly in response to frustration and also in response to being merged with mother in the symbiotic stage when she was in a negative state. These structures of negativity become illuminated when the deeply relaxing and opening effect of Loving Light touches the soul. In this way, the structures can be seen and understood, although they are not easy to work through because they have such early, primitive roots.
