the temples of magic

though this life is abundant with visible magic and invisible magicians that meet me around every corner, i need go no further than these physical bodies to be fascinated with the entirety of this brilliant design.

life and the experience of it starts with these bodies...but it's also entirely taking place WITHIN them also.

everything about the human body fascinates me. how did it come to be? this brilliant gathering of cells that register vibration the way that they do...this brilliant gathering of trillions of living cells that first began as just a single cell...this gathering of light that appears as this palpable solid thing...how did all of this bubble into being?

i have these eyes that are so well designed to allow me to see dimensions and depths of colors in such an elegantly constructed way that i forget that what's before me is all vibratory information. that all i'm seeing is a light show of varying degrees. i remember standing at the top of a mountain not long ago, taking in the gorgeous view of the trees that descended below me. i remember looking up at the sky and feeling like i had accomplished something. something big. and in that moment, i wasn't appreciating that i had eyes to see, to take it in. it didn't even occur to me to ponder what it was i was really looking out at.

but right now when i look back at that memory and so many others, that is all i can think of. i HAVE these amazing things called "eyes" on this funny gathering of light called my "head", and it is because i have them, and because they are the brilliance that they are, and because there is this funny gooey thing called a brain inside my head, that i get to take in so much of this delicious life.

all vibration. all frequency. all light. all MAGIC i say!

ears that register a wide range of sounds. tongues that differentiate flavors, a mouth that salivates for all things sweet and sour. teeth that chomp and nibble at all things delicious...including ears.

there is so much that these bodies do, so much that they carry on in such an effortless way that it's easy to forget that the magic of life begins before you even see an outside world. electrical firings. cells communicating. frequency receivers and broadcasters.

what brilliant organic devices are these things?!?

that everything is being constructed the way that it is...that everything is being projected in my own consciousness...the way the brain is assimilating all information...the way fluids are colliding and the way cells are morphing and registering frequencies...the magic starts at home deep within these brilliant temples of light!

life amazes me in ways i can't describe. but the amazement can only arise because there is a body to allow me to process things in such light...

it's all so pretty-full and rad!

"Statistically, the probability of any one of us being here is so small that you'd think the mere fact of existing would keep us all in a contented dazzlement of surprise." Lewis Thomas, Physician and Essayist (1913-1993)

quick, gimme a high-five for being as dazzling as you are!

in Love,

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. 

To honor …
