life’s greater purpose

it’s Not about me

AND

it’s ALL about me

How can I serve the greater whole?

How can I (the me)

serve the

greater whole (the not me)?

a CIRCLE illustrates that perfectly

Thinking Mind will not come to understand or see this Truth.

But something will clearly express it in our lives, when we open our hearts to allow it to be revealed.

It will always show up in a way that is unexpected. It may feel undeserved, unfair, unholy, unthinkable. But that is only the interpretation of the smaller thinking (me) mind.

Life’s greater purpose is Always working through us. No matter how it appears on the surface.

Seed inside a circle

Had a dream last night.

RECOLLECTION ….. an image of a seed inside a circle

FEELING …… amazement at how it could come to BE without having been in the earth’s “ground”

Which leads to deep contemplation today on so many levels……

Like, Are we asking the real questions?

Like What is TIME?

Just love this Watts Wave from Akira. I think it says it all ……

here are some highlights below, but so worth listening in entirety:

Why are you talking?

For the same reason the birds sing and the same reason that the stars shine! I DIG IT!!

I DIG IT!!   I DIG IT!!! I DIG IT!!!

Why do you dig it?

Well, I could go on and on but …..

explaining things by the past is really a refusal to explain them at all!

All you’re doing is postponing it again and again

it explains NOTHING

What does explain things is the present.

WHY DO YOU DO IT NOW?

It all starts RIGHT NOW.

Just as the sound comes out of silence, allness comes out of nothing.

All of LIFE suddenly emerges out of space BANG right NOW!

What are you doing NOW?

Freedom from being a puppet of the past

That is liberation

from the ridiculous situation of being a dog wagged by its tail.

TIME      TIME     TIME     TIME     TIME    TIME 

 

Salutation to the Sun

a poem:

sunrise, inspiration

pause here, contemplation

set an intention, make it real

touch the earth, how does it FEEL?

midday noon, take a REST

awaken now to be your best

touch the earth, how does it FEEL?

it bears the fruit that helps us heal

the sun has set, goodnight my friend

there’s NO BEGINNING AND NO END.

I wrote this poem many years ago to match the movements of the sun salutation yoga movements.

My sleep last night deeply informed my insight today and delivered the following words of wisdom to my inbox:

“It should be evident that the nature of problem solving, so much of which is rooted in unconscious thought, is holistic and beyond the blunt tools of written assessment.” Junaid Mubeen

“So the first step in solving a puzzle is to figure out what’s the basis for a puzzle. This basis (the universal puzzle) is not that hard to figure out.
It turns out…
Everything’s a puzzle, because, everything’s a circle: the pieces in a puzzle make up a whole. So what is the relationship between the piece and the whole? The puzzle and the whole? The puzzle as a whole? The circular relationship between the pieces (puzzle) and the whole.
An individual always shares a circle with a group, no matter what you call it. Swarm. Network. Market. The basis is a whole (in a circle with at least one other whole).
Within a circle, two pieces (complementarity) always make a whole (an identity). So the imaginary circle between (and around) any unit is the basis for a unit, and, therefore, the most basic number (conserving both technology and economics) is the whole (two-not-one). (50–50 everything.)
No one wants to hear this because circular reasoning is, perhaps, pre-maturely, still, taboo.
Correction.
Half will want to hear this.
Half already understand: there are no problems to solve. It’s a matter of perspective (if you want or need problems to solve, then, for you, the problem-solver, there will have to be problems). Non-problem solvers are comfortable with problems. As is. Accept it.
The relative is absolute, and the constant is a variable.
No coincidence. (Like any background-foreground relationship, relationships in general, life articulates a circle). Likewise, the digits zero and one. Absolute zero and perpetual motion. Circumference and diameter (nothing more).
A circle as a (universal) whole. A (symbolic) circuit, cycle, switch (Y-N, T-F, M-F). The informational state. Everything changes because nothing changes.
So, thus a puzzle, that is not a puzzle, after all. It’s conservation of the circle that gives us all the whole. The universe. A universe. A unit — any scale.
The circular relationship between what’s ideal and what is real. The abstract and concrete. The informational state and the physical state.” Ilexa Yardley, Author: The Circular Theory

 

The dream

Mowing or cleaning a lawn – back yard –lots of trees, they’re dark, bending overhead as after a storm.
I hear a crackling, and realize I’m in danger of a tree falling on me.
I begin to run while I’m mowing/cleaning.
I get around to the front of the yard and the dream changes – small dogs (several) that I’m responsible for – they are running outside, and one gets loose from leash- I’m concerned it will not come back.
But it does, and all the dogs gather round me.
I’m in a room (like a bedroom?)
Others say to me that I did a great job cleaning (the house?, the yard?)
But I feel like I haven’t accomplished what I need to.
I say, “I can come back tomorrow” (to finish, do more)

Recalling last night’s dream, the felt message is about my work here (on planet earth).

How I feel about it.

Like I’m cleaning up my “stuff”, yet something deep within knows that this is an infinite task.

The symbols in the dream are so much about earth life, trees, dogs, responsibilities.

Knowing that this infinite existence we call Life is truly a Circle, no beginning and no end, I think my deeper intuition is always reminding me I can “come back tomorrow” (on the earth plane of linear time anyway).

Come back tomorrow or Choose Again.

I recently had the good fortune to be given a gift (one of many) from my loving friend, Nancy. It was a session with a very gifted and proficient dreamworker, Jill Eras.

Jill showed me that the “feelings” evoked from the dream are the deepest roadmap/pointers to the messages.

When I awoke this morning, I looked inward for the feelings.

There was a “feeling” of much to do, and a sense that I am somehow “doing” the work without even really knowing exactly how that’s being accomplished. It felt easy to mow that lawn even though danger was lurking, I easily ran through to safety.

It was an “okay” feeling, like it will all be OKAY, and it all IS okay.

No matter how bleak those dark stormy bent hanging trees appear and how out of control the running dogs behave, and how messy the yard can get.

Our dreams are our most essential guides in this existence. Like all of nature, our dreams keep us connected to the essence of Spirit knowingness while we live in these bodies.

 

The Circle

Lauda Leon said, ‘The ascension is not about moving outside of yourself, it’s going from outward to Inward.

I wonder ….. if the circle is Life’s True Nature then there is no boundary, there is No Out and there is No In.

A 10-year-old “emotionally disabled” student I was teaching yoga many years ago once said to me, “The energy goes in, and the energy goes out

I think he knew something deeply but these were the only words he could find in his limited human vocabulary to express it. Why he said that to me, I never understood. But I will never forget it. It was as if a voice came through him, it wasn’t even his own, and out of nowhere it chose that moment to say those words to me. I never responded. Because I didn’t even know what to say. Maybe it was a moment of accessing the parallel universe – the one where the imaginary circle boundary disappears and you can experience one of the infinite other dimensions.

For things to reveal themselves to us, we need to be ready to abandon our views about them.” ― Thich Nhat Hanh, Being Peace

Why Hatred Rules (Exists in) the World
Like and love (lover and hater) conserve a circle.
We all love our point of view.
It creates the opposing point of view.
We hate this.
