The more I tune in
with the miraculous intelligence
of the organs and cells of my body,
the more waves of awe and gratitude arise ~
gratitude to all the ancestors,
who have been cultivating it
since the Big Bang.
If I am not
only my body, my thoughts, my emotions, and sensation,
what I really am?
What else than a nexus of the same undivided life
that is connecting everything within
and flowing through the web of my relationships
from which it composes me without?
When death would take me out,
I will outsmart it by feeding the web
with enlivening cross-links,
so that the “I” can go
and life can keep flowing through it, uninterrupted.
The “wood bud moment” of human organizing is when the meme of a generative & transformative initiative jumps from one mind to another, where it is absorbed by a fertile terrain.
I think of an initiative as generative when it generates more collective energy than it consumes. The initiative is…
Birthdays are not only for blowing out the candles, receiving cards, and celebrating with family and friends. In some of the ancient wisdom traditions, they’re also privileged times for vision quest, personal ceremony, and other forms of introspection.
When I’m writing from off the top of my head, what comes through, most frequently, is ephemera and throw-away phrases with very short shelf-life.
A foundational myth is being born in our time.
It is the planetary journey towards a new world of being,
an expedition into our interconnectedness in a higher harmony.
To fulfill itself, the energy of the Myth
is seeking to marry the energy of the Method for collective awakening.
Change is happening. For better or worse. For better and worse.
Change is a fact of life. Trying to make it happen is futile or worse, given the unintended consequences of any linear, corrective action in a complex and volatile world.
I’m a recovering change-maker. Not only that, but I…
A reality show in which hundreds of people are dying in remote countries due to an unabated viral infection is no fun. Much less so when the virus has reached the town where I live.
Mesmerized, during the day, I am watching moving images of the quarantined people telling their…
Listening to people “frustrated with developmental stages,” I’ve just realized:
Only when the energy of the Green wave carries itself to its peak, only then will start the Teal wave emerging and growing the next stage of human consciousness into a society-shaping force.
Early- and middle-Green are threatened by the perceived hierarchical tendency in “stages of development.”
Early-stage Teal can be trapped in fighting back and calling them the “mean Green meme.”
Surfing all waves, maturing Teal will embrace and support Green and work on creating the conditions for its trajectory to complete itself.
In fact, when that work appears, it is one of the signs of maturing, embodied Teal that previously existed mostly in the cognitive realm.
