You’ve Never Been here, You’ve Always Been Here

intentionally, I differentiate between...
here...
and Here.

here, is where you've never been. here is the ever new kaleidoscope of phenomena in which we find ourselves smack dab in the middle of. SPLAT. it's all around us. seemingly familiar, seemingly known. and yet it isn't either. this moment is unrepeatable. a changeling mingling dance of infinite possibilities collapsing in and out of view just for you. there are as many dimensions to it as you can allow yourself to awaken to. think in terms of infinity and you' haven't even begun to touch upon the possibilities for newness and unimaginable-ness that it carries within it. as many new ways of living it as you can and can't imagine, it holds it all alive before you. you've never been here before and you'll never be here again. its uniqueness blinks on and off and makes way for its own fast evolving vibrancy to come alive again. here, it is the dance of ever changing light.

and the other Here is where you always are. the best seat before the grand universal movie screen of waking life. no yesterday. no tomorrow. no today. the only Space is Here. the only Point is Now. it is the seat of Creation that gives you the most incredible view of how nothing has ever happened, and how it is all ever the constant fabrication of your own beautiful mind.

sameness is an illusion
continuity is an illusion
familiarity is woven by the stories in our own mind

we are forever dangling on the edge of the unknown, and it's when we're awake to that, that we allow ourselves to be creative doors, opening to let in the untouched magnificence of infinite depths and of infinite heights.

in light of that awareness we go, as guru buzz lightyear says, to infinity and beyond!

the end!

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 …
