walking miracles

everything about this design inspires me. i don't know how to convey it to another mind, how miraculous this whole existence is, what a miracle every being walking on this earth really and truly is. i wish i could just grab every face that crosses my path and say, "you are a walking miracle!" i'm looking at everything as a walking miracle. every layer of every single thing formed in this life is the intricate and intelligent functioning of some power. i'm in awe that in this instant alone, billions of intelligent cells are communicating rapidly just so i can experience sitting, just so i can experience thinking, just so i can experience composing this arrangement of words. and i love that. i love that the intelligence of these countless cells, their ability to register vibration, communicate, and send electrical signals to the brain, is allowing me to take in so much of the wonder of this wonderful life in an inexplicable way and participate in it in every moment of my life.

thanks to physics, now we say everything is energy. and if you even for a moment give that bit of knowledge some deep thought, just contemplate that bit of knowledge alone, your mind has to surrender to the boundless unicity that thrives as all things. to rise into the unshakable security of your Being lands on that fact alone. oneness. a mind steeped in the idea of separation, superficially hypnotized by what appears is a defensive mind, an insecure mind that believes its survival rests on competition. such a mind is blind to the limitless power that is flowing to and through all things right this very instant. but the mind that realizes the oneness of this design rises above all illusion and in its waking falls in love with the beauty that is all things and moves all things. there is but one power in this universe and the wise and the sages have given it so many different names. but what the wise and sages have realized means nothing if you yourself don't just stop to "question the obvious" and see past the veil of sensory experience. to really enjoy sensory experience, to really appreciate the functioning's of the physical body and the appearances within this physical experience, you have to understand what all this really and truly is. what you truly and really are.

every being is a walking miracle, an interplay of unfathomable intelligence. if you can look in the mirror and look into the eyes of an apparent other and recognize this, you are owning your name. and if you have not yet, you should start your day saying...i am a freakin' walking miracle! 'cause you are. at every level of your being.

Baby Smiles as Meditation

You know when you're having a frazzled day and something pops up in your face to get you to slow down, get back to earth, and just remember how amazing life is? Today, that something for me was a smiling baby.

In my mad dash to get all my errands done, I was up in my head rushing through the aisles of the store and running through the checklist in my head. I get that way now and again, forgetting to breathe deeply and relax into my moments. I can't even say it's the human condition or the world we live in. It's not any of that, it's forgetting to remember or overlooking the ease and flow that's always here to carry us when we remember to just slow it all down.

I look up as I push my cart around, and there he is, this little round faced ball of happiness just staring at me. The moment our eyes meet, he breaks into a huge smile like my turning to look at him was all he was waiting for, like we're bff's who haven't seen each other in ages and are about…

The End of Time: The Next Revolution in Our Understanding of the Universe

When a book clearly articulates a map of "time" that makes the most sense, you have to go get yourself a copy of that book...

“Nows within this now, rather like snapshots in an album. Each Now is separate and a world unto itself, but the richly structured Nows 'know' about one another because they literally contain one another in certain essential respects. As consciousness surveys many things at once in one Now, it is simultaneously present, at least in part, in other Nows. This awareness of many things in one could well exist in a much more pronounced form in other places in Platonia.” ― Julian Barbour

What does it mean to Honor the Self?

Such great wisdom from Dr Nathaniel Branden:
The first act of honoring the self is the assertion of consciousness. The choice to think, to be aware, to send the searchlight of consciousness outward toward the world, and inward toward your own being. To fail in this effort is to fail the self at the most basic level. 

To honor the self is to be willing to think independently, to live by your own mind, and to have the courage of your own perceptions and judgments. 

To honor the self is to be willing to know not only what you think, but also what you feel, what you want, need, desire, suffer over, are frightened or angered by, and to accept your right to experience such feelings. The opposite of this attitude is denial, disowning, repression, self-repudiation. 

To honor the self is to preserve an attitude of self acceptance, which means to accept what you are without self criticism, without lying about who you are in a pretense aimed at deceiving either yourself or someone else.
