I feel, if we’re being honest, we’re all going through a hard time. I analogized this to a friend recently, “It’s like we’re sailors. We have some skills because we’ve sailed before. We know how to tack and adjust for changes in wind and current; but the whole notion of sailing relies on a fixed destination. Now, it’s a though we have our familiar ways of navigation, but the destination keeps moving. We’re not sure exactly where we’re going.”
What if there is another way of being, of navigating? What if there is a way to be comfortable, even adept at Not Knowing?
The mystics, shamans, and yogis have explored these realms, beyond our fixed ideas, for thousands of years. They realized everything is changing, constantly, sometimes slowly, sometimes quickly, but always moving. What if we could explore these realms, learn from them, glean insights, and bring these experiences back to assist us in the practical navigation of our lives?
Experienced sailors become extremely attuned to their environment. They can predict the weather by the light of the sky and the subtle changes in air pressure. They read the currents by watching the waves and the movements of birds and sea life.
What if we could tune into these realms of energy too; attune ourselves beyond right-doing and wrong-doing to a place where the world is too full to talk about, and ideas of “other” don’t make any sense? How might our world be different if we knew of this wisdom? How might we be different?
Perhaps we’ll find out…
I look forward to exploring the possibilities with you.
Love & Peace
Out beyond ideas of wrong-doing and right-doing, 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.
