I’ll Meet You There

 

 

Just a little Sunday Something –  Deepak Chopra in optima forma – weaving science, ancient wisdom and poetry into a captivating tapestry, talking about Time and Wholeness. And as we are running out of time we are walking into a place that is out-of-time, where you just forget to take pictures because there’s no concept of either past or future. A place that’s so beautifully captured by Rumi:

Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing,
there is a field. I’ll meet you there.

When the soul lies down in that grass,
the world is too full to talk about.
Ideas, language, even the phrase “each other” doesn’t make any sense

 
If anything, just listen to Deepak reciting  Tagore’s Stream of Life @ 3:20.

– Stream Of Life –

The same stream of life that runs through my veins night and day
runs through the world and dances in rhythmic measures

It is the same life that shoots in joy through the dust of the earth
in numberless blades of grass
and breaks into tumultuous waves of leaves and flowers

It is the same life that is rocked in the ocean-cradle of birth
and of death, in ebb and in flow

I feel my limbs are made glorious by the touch of this world of life.
And my pride is from the life-throb of ages dancing in my blood this moment

 

 

Solstice Thunder

Yesterday this precious gift came falling from somewhere way up high. And it came hard and fast. It’s charged and full of magic. It will fill you up, if you allow it. For me there’s an energetic link with this earlier tune. From build up pressure to release.

Tune in. It’s worth it. And you’re worth it (no, I’m not selling shampoo). Bunches of Love ~ Jay

Breathe Deeply

The Sun looks in the mirror and sees the wild flowers. And sees you. And me.  As the flowers breathe in the Sun, the Sun inhales the flowers, fully. And you. And me. How deep do you allow yourself to breathe?

It’s about to turn Spring again in the Universe. And it’s about time. You’re already sown and seeded. Time for a little peek-a-boo to start seeing ourselves for who we truly are. Franz Kafka tells us:

‘You do not need to leave your room. Remain sitting at your table and listen. Do not even listen, simply wait, be quiet still and solitary. The world will freely offer itself to you to be unmasked, it has no choice, it will roll in ecstasy at your feet.’

Breathe deeply. Make the Sun proud and shine your Light. Be glorious.

Storm Chasing

Antsy… that’s the best way to describe the energy of the last couple of days. The oracle report says:

‘If you feel like you are bouncing around between two things or that you have no control over what is happening in your world, your life is trying to merge into one timeline  – and it is probably driving you mad.’ 

As the previous post spoke about ‘winds’ and ‘breeze’, these days feel more like an unshakable tension in the air and ‘storm chasing’. To get to the eye of the storm, perhaps. Ah, the stillness of the Center…sigh…Where the chaser and the chasee merge.

But first ‘antsy’. This tune has been chasing me (the chasee) since Friday, just like the oracle report described. Time for release, done with it. Don’t listen to it [and this is not a reverse psychology trick {neither is this one}] if you already are in your still point. No need to get the ‘antsies’ [smile].

An open invitation

Today 2012 graciously invites us into her home and asks us to be kind. To let go. To take our shoes off. To let tears flow. To have a heart. To not know. To be gentle. To take lightly. To smile. To play. One day at a time. Moment by moment, carrying us from Now to Now. RSVP.

I’m happy to share this little musical gift with you – original by Spirit. Have a good one. Play.

Rolling in the dirt

I read a comment  where  this lady shared how she went to an event about ‘unity consciousness’. And after arriving at the place she noticed how the event organizers kinda kept to their own, off which she didn’t think too much as they probably were still wrapping up the preparations.  But halfway the event people were leaving early and the organizers were still (from her perspective) distancing themselves; and when she approached them to thank them for putting the event together, they weren’t really ‘present’. Long story short and paraphrasing:  they were not really acting ‘unity conscious’ –ly, not really giving off that Oneness-vibe.

And this is not to pick the commenter apart in any way, as I can imagine probably having made a similar observation myself. But it does raise an important question: how do we ‘recognize’ unity consciousness? What does it ‘look like’? How do we know we’re there? First let’s note that the observation is a subjective one, all wrapped up in expectations. And doesn’t it always come down to this, if we’re really honest:  what we’re seeing around ourselves, the things that catch our attention, triggers an emotion, is a perfect reflection of where we are. It’s a spiritual baseline to which you either subscribe or not – and either way is better [smile]. And yes,  it can be pretty challenging looking at every aspect of your life from the ‘as within so without’ perspective.

And  I [are you kidding me?] don’t have the final  answer to the “how do we ‘recognize’ unity consciousness?” – question . Probably as long as we label it as such, as something we expect outside of ourselves,  we’re not there yet. It’s the ultimate duality trap. So we do know the drill by now as we’re slouching to the kitchen for another cup of coffee/herbal tea: ‘Yeah I know,  I gotta go find it within myself –AGAIN’. Oooohhmmmm…

Reading the ‘unity consciousness’-comment also triggered this: Maslow…no not Pavlov…Abraham Maslow. Known for the ‘hierarchy of needs’ and his study of ‘self-actualized’ people.  On self-actualization [from Wiki]:

‘ “What a man can be, he must be.” This forms the basis of the perceived need for self-actualization. This level of need pertains to what a person’s full potential is and realizing that potential. Maslow describes this desire as the desire to become more and more what one is, to become everything that one is capable of becoming.’

Why did the Maslow-thing come up? Is self-actualization an aspect, or an expression, of unity consciousness? I do see similarities, like transcending the self, no judgment, not arguing with reality, now-presence. And I can imagine the spontaneity, joy, free spirit and a sense of non-failure that go with it. And reading the comment on that ‘not-so-unity’ event, it reminded me of this story: at the end of one of Maslow’s psychology courses, the students got a final exam. And for this exam, Maslow asked his students just one question. Suppose a self-actualized person goes to a party; it’s formal, everyone is in tuxedo, gowns, and this self-actualized person walks in wearing a pair of jeans, t-shirt, baseball cap. What would he do? Students wrote down how he would be okay with it, knowing it was fine just to be who he was, etcetera. After reading all the answers, Maslow said: you’ve all failed. The answer to this question can be given in four words: He would not notice.

How do you not notice: by being completely void of expectations. Paradoxically, only once ‘unity’ becomes meaningless, we have arrived. But then we won’t notice it, as we just will be there. Duality will have served its purpose and we’ve moved on, beyond separation.  In the meantime like most of us I still play the expectations game myself [only for entertainment, not because I need to, {ahum}].  And what do I expect?  I got a glimpse of a ‘unity conscious’ future, as I went for a little walk last week: a golden retriever  rolling on his back in the dirt, totally out of his mind. Happy, self-actualized, One with All, you name it. And he didn’t even notice.
