A Return to the Sacred

I seem to be stumbling across a number of articles these days that express, far more beautifully than I can, my own philosophical orientation to life and the need to return to a very vital, sacred part of human nature which has been lost to the commodifying, consumerist culture that has, over time, impoverished our spiritual selves.

This is what I wish we all could do for our children and ourselves.

It is called:  Remember Your Song

Of Dreams, Calypso and Humanity

I awoke last night out of a dream in which I experienced myself as nothing more than a small point of awareness passing through a very brief moment in a particular time in history. Like a small stone passing through our atmosphere.  It wasn’t an intellectual realization, but, rather, a kinesthetic and right brain sensation of understanding.  A very pleasant, soft knowing of becoming nothing.  We strive so often and work so hard here to become something and forget the entire point is to become its opposite.  We spend so much time thinking about the world after we are gone and yet, seem never to contemplate the fact that the world has been for billions of years before we ever were.  And it did just fine without us, individually and collectively.  I think we would all do better if we were to contemplate that larger time frame, rather than our own.

At any rate, such musings are not new and others have written of similar matters before.  What was a turning point for me was that one inside of which the gap between intellectual knowledge and kinesthetic wisdom is bridged.  That bridge arrived not in the throes of full dream time, but inside that twilight of half-awake/half-asleep space where an easy flow of stream of consciousness can be experienced.  It is the space within which the mind can heal itself:  allowing the connections between the abstract, non-verbal, right brain realms and the concrete, linear left brain arena to intertwine and weave themselves into the Holistic Mind.

The Ophiuchus Syndrome

Since my last entry on the cosmology of Ophiuchus, I have found myself snowed in in my little domain in the desert (always yield to the serendipity of Mother Nature).  This event has provided me with some open space to peruse the different narratives being generated by our little astrological/astronomical “crisis,” I call The Ophiuchus Syndrome.

In so doing, it seems a coherence of the different levels of human awareness are emerging out of the cybersphere of monologues, which I hope will lead to a greater understanding of how our collective unconscious moves around and works with issues presented in the material world.
