“Fixed constructs keep us from experiencing the fluidity of reality which contains the abundance and connections that we long for on this journey. You must ask yourselves in each moment, What am I programming?” Jenny Schiltz
My contemplation in the garden was insightful today.
I felt the plasma-like substance that Jenny Schiltz talks about in her recent blog post. Yes, indeed. I do agree, this plasma is programmable.
But this is what I saw today:
This plasma is YOU and ME. (you can substitute the word God for plasma if you prefer)
It is the very fascia of our being and all of what we perceive as planet Earth.
Who programs this plasma? YOU and ME.
Our thoughts program the plasma.
Think of a fractal. The way it is infinitely the same above and below, a spiraling infinity of as above so below, but there’s really no separation of above and below. We just can’t see above and below.
We only see the level of our own conscious awareness in each moment – which is reflected into the plasma that we perceive as outside of us.
But this plasma is already programmed for eons to hide the reality of this fluid movement of energy so that we are unaware, unconscious, and disbelieving of its power within each of us.
Can we un-program our plasma, or re-program it?
The infinite layers of stuck and programmed ideas, beliefs, and indoctrinated behaviors is the plasma that’s playing the current movie feature called Life on Earth.
YOU and I create this.
How did I envision this today?
I witnessed the natural behaviors of the living things;
Kale grown from tiny seedlings
Ants creating pathways through the dirt
Deep-rooted grass weeds, so hard to pull
Soft clover yielding easily to my touch.
IT knows. Life showed me. IT pointed directly to the nature of reality that I AM, and I listened.
Simultaneously, I felt the burning pain in my right breast from the Shingles virus, a condition I’ve manifested over the past several months.
This stinging pain said to me,
You are transforming, Janet. You are always becoming and always being. Forever connected to truth, even when you don’t see it clearly. This body will only show you what your mind thinks. Good or bad. It will always mirror your thoughts.
I AM plasma.
doing this, doing that
going here, going there
ooooh yes, ooooh no
The month has been kind of hectic, and I’ve lapsed in my precious quiet sitting time.
So today, I took the time to sit in awareness …… of awareness.
“It is more useful and certainly easier to think of meditation as the art of acknowledging what is already present. This can happen when you’re sitting in meditation, which is great, but you can also do it at any time. It takes only a few seconds to notice that awareness and quiet are always and already the background of every experience. Start with little moments of meditation – ten seconds, fifteen seconds – and repeat them during the day. Gradually do nothing but this acknowledgement practice for two, ten, twenty seconds, whatever- but do not turn it into a battle, and do not turn it into something that is frustrating or makes you feel defeated. These small moments of meditation can change what you are noticing. In a certain sense, you will be changing your consciousness, opening and beginning to observe and feel and sense into – become sensitive to – the sacred and the timeless. It may or may not start out that way the first time you do it, but the sacred and the timeless are always and already present. All we need to do is take a moment to notice, and that is what meditation is.”
