Dear Earth,

Re-claim yourself.

 It’s what all living beings here need to move forward in solidarity with your well-being.

Winds of change are blowing everywhere it seems.

What are your deepest desires, dear Earth?

May the emerging soul of your being invoke encouragement and joy from the continuous music of your fertile soil, vibrant oceans and vivid skies.

May your evolutions move us beyond the limitations of our minds and emotions…to help us see and experience the Divine Infinite as only you can.

In humble gratitude,

human beans of earth…7 billion and rising….

Photosynthesis and the Art of Sound

truecolors-of-mind

Ask any physicist.  There is no ‘thing’ at the root of life and livingness.

The tiniest subatomic particles are described as ‘interference patterns of various sound frequencies’ otherwise known as ‘nodes of resonance.’  This got me thinking.

In many non-westernized cultures, a commonly held, tacit belief is that sound precedes manifestation of all forms and energy.

That sound plays a catalyzing role in creation—that sound itself is a continuum spanning the macrocosm through a hierarchy of iterations that range to the infinitesimal microcosm…

Creation is a beginning.  Something becomes where there was previously non-existence. How can such concepts be made evident in this culture?  There seems to live within me a deep purpose for connecting that which does not have an obvious connection.

What has the power to create has the power to heal.  And so I began some weeks of reflection on the relationship of photosynthesis to sound. 

 

It came to me one night around 3AM as a profound question for which I initially discovered there is little commonality other than this: sound and sunlight are both wavelengths that impact life on earth.  The next morning I realized, that’s a fairly good start.

As a naturalist, I couldn’t help but then wonder—what of nature’s plant, atmospheric and oceanic worlds that quietly regulate our daily lives?  All create sound.  All aspects impact life on earth—not just human life.

So at November’s annual Daily Acts’ fundraiser breakfast, I discussed the relationship of photosynthesis to sound with friend, wise teacher and dear colleague, James Stark.  He reflected on this for a few moments, and in his inimitably savvy way, pointed out that outside of photosynthesis, the dawn chorus was a living example of the relationship between light from the sun that activates photosynthesis and…the activation of dialogue…of meaningful connection…of life.  The dawn chorus is nature’s daily symphony of news–what an exuberant way to start the day!

DawnChorusAnd so at a macro fundamental level, light activates sound which catalyzes life.  I’d love to extrapolate beyond this with more living examples.  Got an example?  Know someone who does?  Reach out and connect—I’d love to hear from you.

What an awesome way to see the roots of a new earth…

Greetings!  We are now officially into the New Year of 2012, with powerful, fearless and conscious choices that release our attachments to what no longer serves our highest good.

In so doing, a light joyful balance rolls in to wash through the old crevices where we’d kept old ideas held tightly, thinking that they would serve us.

Strengthening our vision and dream of what is possible in our lives—despite all outward appearances otherwise—continues to emerge.  This life force dawns each day with divine right alignment.  When we are aligned with the truth of ourselves, it becomes apparent that a harmonious pattern of divine intelligence is already in place—just waiting for each of us to wake up to its presence.

There is a sort of primal intelligence within every living being—animal, plant, insect or human—that experiences itself as an integrated co-creative part of this larger design.  So let the old pass away is it must, and embrace the fluid, life-filled cosmic blueprint of what is yet to be.

Give yourself permission to feel exhilarated for no reason whatsoever.

Give yourself permission to speak your truth compassionately.

Delight in the newfound space of your expanding being.

Begin to live the life you have always dreamed of.

When we ALLOW the old beliefs to fall away, and get right down to our essence, what else is there REALLY?

So, just be.  Just dream.  You’ll know when the moment is right to say YES with all of your being. 🙂

There is infinite vibrance and originality in the spirit of living and seeing the world holistically.

Cape Finisterre, Spain

Something potent within awakens, and moves into  an expansive and deeper way of living in the world.

The impulse to create something meaningful with one’s life is a sacred expression of one’s gifts.

On this journey, we discover every project or new exploration reveals a story to be shared—and a deeper, more alive existence beyond that which is apparent to the eye.

As we move into new beginnings, let’s bring forth what is most alive within each of us and discover how the living earth resonates with it.

Painting by David Nikias, Waldorf teacher

 

Imagine every person on earth tuning into their inborn inner guidance and listening to the heartbeat—the life force of Gaia.

Imagine discovering how alive and interconnected—and in need of healing—the earth really is.  Imagine discovering your truest purpose and living it through.

It might just heal the world.
