Shared Nature

I do to get my heart going,
To remember how it beats.

It races.

Nervousness connects us to our humanity,
To the ability to apply psyche to mechanisms of fight and flight.

Hyper-erratic is our new nature,
And consciousness is our engine.

Just as the breath in our lungs was cultivated by the elements and the botanical alchemy of atmospheric transformation,
Just as the love story that evolved into mythology and mysticism
We are beyond eukaryote,
We are beyond mutating DNA,
e are aware.

Consciousness bred communication, communication is parent to understanding and the modifications that have become the structures and patterns the can be described as culture, or, our new nature— our Shared Nature.

In propagating and amplifying our civilization, we have enhanced the scope and abilities of our perception.
Consciousness has and is continually extending from, into, and through our milieu.
Our milieu is continually extending from, onto through other milieus.
In so doing, we are accessing other minds.
Call it empathy, call it telepathy, call it mirror neurons, or simply— call it society.

We are as much ourselves as we are the world we live in.
We are our experience. We are self. We are other. We are culture.
We are Nature in movementnurturing possibility.

We are evolving from biology into something else.
Just as we evolved from stardust into complex biological systems,
We are now utilizing our own engineering of society to re-create ourselves and have thusly sparked a Shared Nature.
In so doing, nature has connected us and we have connected nature.

Reciprocal, symbiotic, inevitable evo-development.

A meta-cognitive, semiotic dimensionality.
A vibrationally enticing cymatic like manifestation.
A creation of a new reality!

In sum, forks in the road should not be separation, but rather, a meeting point. Consciousness has brought us to the intersection of spirituality, art and science. Mind, soul, and body. Father, son and holy spirit. Each were meant to course through particular paths to understand their own very nature. Segregating only to unite again.

We wish to know. We will to tell. We find we know that we know and thus we establish. We classify. We theorize, we test, we believe. We societize.

Sacred love.
Sacred art.
Sacred science.

Redundantly human. Redundancy yielding infinite saliency.
We find nothing else and thus find ourselves in everything else.

So, be natural- SHARE.


Remembering through Mandala, Loving in Merkaba

  March 5th, 2012

We used to find, not just remember.

We were once curious about uncertainty…
Now we are just afraid.

Did we find comfort?
Is that what we sought?


We wanted adventure, mystery, euphoria.
Instead we found chaos, pain,
Utter pandemonium!

And so—
            We Loved. We Learned.
And Now,
            We remember to know,
            Because we know to remember.

Still, we Love.
And continue because we know the pattern.

The pattern. The flow. The cycle. The way.

            Remembering is our Mandala
Counting—one, two, three, four,
And finding once more:

Remembering is our Mandala.
            Love, our Merkaba.

We repeat patterns because there WILL BE a different result,
Through perceptions evolved.  

Germ to Seed

            Seed to Flower

                        Flower to Fruit

Fruit to Flower

            Flower to Seed

                        Seed to Germ

Remembering is our Mandala.
Love, our Merkaba.

Germ to Seed

            Seed to Flower

                        Flower to Fruit

Germ to Seed

            Seed to Flower

                        Flower to Fruit

Remembering through Mandala,
Loving in Merkaba.

Our pattern, our flow, our cycle, our way.



Burnout: The Disease of Our Civilization
Arianna Huffington                 August 22, 2013

“…more and more businesses are realizing that the long-term health of their bottom line is directly tied to the long-term health of their employees.”

“Companies that make sincere efforts to recognize employees’ lives outside of the office,” said Glassdoor’s Rusty Rueff, “will often see the payoff when it comes to recruiting and retaining top talent.”

As Tony Schwartz, CEO of The Energy Project writes, it’s no surprise that the same principles that apply to athletic performance also hold true for business performance. In physical training, he writes, “it’s during rest and renewal that muscle growth actually occurs.” Likewise, it’s in periods of sleep and downtime that our minds recharge. The key is to have “the biggest waves between activity and rest.” To challenge our minds intensely, but also have very deliberate and complete downtime. “The same rhythmic movement serves us well all day long, but instead we live mostly linear, sedentary lives,” he writes. “We go from email to email, and meeting to meeting, almost never getting much movement, and rarely taking time to recover mentally and emotionally.”

“Techno-optimism” and Jason Silva’s “Cinematic Philosophical Shots of Espresso”

The techno-optimist Jason Silva has been bringing the world his “cinematic philosophical shots of espresso,” presenting complex information (typically in reference to science and technology) in a exquisitely appealing fashion.

Marshall McLuhan once suggested, “the medium is the message.”  Jason Silva embodies this idea through his this videos. The self-proclaimed “filmmaker,” “futurist,” and “epiphany addict,” captivates the most skeptic of viewers with his high quality mash-ups, boundless enthusiasm and passionate delivery. This video is one of my favorites, though I highly recommend you check out his others as well.

Find more of his videos @ http://thisisjasonsilva.com/

…But what exactly are the benefits of this “Techno-optimism”? Writer Paul Gilding suggests it can even begin to save the world!! [see: http://paulgilding.com/cockatoo-chronicles/will-the-techno-optimists-save-the-world.html]
