on behalf of your hair...

i get the luxury of walking down the appropriately named "roseview" avenue on the regular. there aren't many roses in view, but there are plenty beauties that make me feel quite rosy. japanese lilac trees and a path sprinkled with daisies under an overcast sky set the scene for my contemplating this law of growth i see all around me...


how did we, who are made of the same elements as everything else here, come to believe that we were separate from this life, its workings, and all that she brings into being? it's perplexing that this belief continues on...

in conventional thinking, not only do we separate ourselves from the whole functioning of life, but we also separate the unfolding of our experiences, our days and our nights, from the precise workings of this fascinating world. everything in this design seems to conform to some law. there is a readily observable science and an art to how things come to pass, and this is elegantly demonstrated for us in the laws of growth we see before us everywhere.

before you can see the trees, the flowers, the shrubs, and the grass, a seed is planted in the earth, and nourished by the elements of this world. before you can see a living being, a fertilized seed is planted in the womb, to gestate, to get nourished, before entering the world. all living beings and all living things go through this process of implantation, gestation, and nourishment, before entry into the world. there is nothing in the processes of how we come to be that separates us from all of life here.



human insecurity, whatever its form, is always a result of the view "i and this life are not one." that life will take care of you and does so because you are its very own creation, creative expression, is elegantly sprinkled all along the path of your unfolding.

but we can take it a step further. not only is the way the human being comes into..well..being under this law of growth, but the way the human being unfolds in this life, the way the human experiences this life, also follows this law of growth.


our experiences operate under this same law we see displayed in the physical unfolding of things. when our mind is introduced to some idea on whatever area of human life (be it identity, love, what life is, or enlightenment), this implanted idea is what forms into a belief. nourished by our attention this belief "grows" into our experiences.

("If a fertile lawn is full of manure, is a fertile mind full of crap?" :) )

everything in this life is a metaphor for everything else. and everything here unfolds with exact precision and under definite principles. mistrust, doubt, fear, and all related insecure states of mind are born when the obvious is ignored. everything here is One. unitary. the same stuff...the same substance forming itself in different ways, unfolding under precise rules and principles.

look outward and see how the physical body goes through the same processes of implantation, has a growth cycle, and then dissolves back into the earth as all other living forms out in this world. look inward and experience directly how the thoughts you have on loop cloth themselves as the experiences you play out...

you as a cute little chipmunk

you are one with everything here. it's only the view that you are separate from all that is here that has you and would ever have you pulling out your pretty little hair...
