As a planet-populated species, we’ve just moved through a powerfully catalytic full moon eclipse (the ‘pink’ full moon of 25 April) that’s ushered in a potent time for being fully present with one’s self and being fully present with others.

Full moons are peak points of brightness amidst the darkness and eclipses are doorways—opportunities to vision, sense, receive and strengthen ourselves through connection. In particular, the feminine principle is growing in strength.

What does this mean?

                                     We’ve entered the 20 Year Make-It-Or-Break-It

                                    crossroads of  human fate and must gird ourselves for

                                    the long haul as we wrestle truth from illusion.

                                                           ~ Mark Borax, Metaphysical Guide

Imagine—as you awake, to fully experiencing the day as a flower—unfolding and opening in this ever-expanding now … offering a lifetime of memories right here, right now—so expansive is this special time as it entwines with our souls …

Notice your response to the images these words evoke. Do you feel attuned, more open? Self-protective? Perhaps doubtful? Do you have to re-read the paragraph to begin imagining the words?

The real question is, will you choose to fearlessly walk a path of beauty that motivates every quadrant of your life? Will you allow the beauty of the natural world to work upon your soul and reveal a world of harmony in which you can co-exist? Or does this seem impossible?

What if your every thought and action was directly related to the well-being of the earth?

The feminine principle is about space and wisdom, which embodies the whole of life, much like a mother embodies her child for nine months before giving birth.  Like a container that creates the space for the content—much like a cup of tea—the container is the feminine principle.

Masculine energy is the skillful means within this space.  Whether you’re a man or a woman, the yin-yang of the feminine and masculine exists in each of  us—on tap as it were—for wholeness. Yet how many of us drink from this tap? How many of us recognize and attune ourselves to this ‘tap’ daily?

When viewed this way, it becomes apparent that as a species, we’ve been in the grips of a sort of ‘tunnel vision,’ focused on activity for the sake of more activity.

When we tune in to the subtle interplay of tangible and intangible elements in our daily lives, we begin to see the bigger picture between what is truly feminine and what is truly masculine. Holding the space for life to grow and evolve is core to the feminine principle.

And at the end of the day, what do we truly need?  Space … peace … unfolding … this is the feminine principle at work in our daily lives.

Where do you find solace?  Peace?  Authentic experience?

Where can we as a species co-create a constellation of wisdom?

Enjoy this beautiful presentation by Jane Fonda on the feminine principle that comes alive in our ‘third act.’

Consider living as a human of radical peace.

I’ve been interpreting nature and the living earth through art and the written word for over 30 years.

Marko has been collaborating with the spiritual energies of nature, creating lithopuncture healing artforms for over 30 years.

This blog is nearly two years old. Its birthday is—as one might surmise—on Earth Day.

Our message is simply this: The earth is a magnificent living, multi-functional, interconnected, self-organizing whole system of a divine nature. Each and every living creature on this planet is a uniquely different, yet thoroughly interconnected part of this whole. With a single decision, you can discover ways to align your own energy with the creative, restorative and healing powers of nature. To live into and embody this knowledge is self-actualization.

As Brian Swimme puts it, the beginning and end of human existence is awe.  So why settle for less?

In my upcoming book, A Naturalist’s Perspective: Reflections on a Living World and the Spirit of Nature, I share six essential secrets to the earth’s well being with which we are already interconnected. Yet in western cultures, because such information is rarely brought to one’s attention, it becomes forgotten.

As a culture, most people suffer from nature deficit disorder.  And as ancient wisdom repeatedly reveals, the most effective remedies are rooted in the natural world and reflected back in the cosmos.

Our deep interconnection with nature is based on approximately 33 additional senses that most people have simply lost touch with because of assumptions that we make about how to ‘do life.’

Many of these assumptions are based on what big business and big media tell us.  Here’s the upshot of a particularly poignant conversation several friends and I had some years ago:

“At first, in your teens and 20’s, it seems easy. In your 30’s, you may be so busy with work and family that you don’t have time to question your life too deeply.  By the time you’re in your 40’s, if you haven’t questioned your life deeply enough, and in the process, established your own value-based philosophy, you’re in for a rude awakening. It’s mind-boggling how ‘asleep at the wheel’ our culture is.”

The six secrets I’m referring to are quintessential cycles and flows that work together, allowing the earth’s (and our) systems to function as a whole.  Each of these aspects is a cornerstone of a living system, yet are often overlooked.

As you cam imagine, the most overlooked ones are the most fruitful for you to explore, because they offer tremendous potential for the human mind to dance and create with.

Les choses qui s’écroulent sont une sorte d’épreuve, mais aussi une sorte de guérison.                                                               ~ Pema Chodron

Two weeks out from the Spring Equinox and the air is ripe with life.

Some mornings, I feel a thrill run through my body as the birds’ dawn chorus inspires me to rise and step outside to stretch in the cool morning air.

Spring has gently yet powerfully moved in, bringing new life and longer days of light.  And to think that a season as lovely as Spring is borne out of the cold, wet darkness of winter.

One of my favorite permaculture design principles is:

‘Use Edges + Value the Margins.’

Edges in nature are transition zones—the places where the composition of the terrain, flora and fauna change.   Edges and margins are also the places in our lives where real change occurs—where we are sometimes tested far beyond our comfort zones.

In nature, edges and margins can be where a forest gives way to a field of wildflowers, or where the firm footing of solid ground begins to soften and goosh, filling with dense ferns and mangroves before giving way to a riverbank.   It could simply be where crunchy beachfront sand yields to undulating clumps of sedge, tall grasses and scrubby brush.  It’s where life yields to life, and recombines to create new environments.   Each environment provides habitat for plants and animals that have adapted over millenia to that particular arrangement of life.  These are the earth’s ecosystems.  And they are incredibly precious.

This same perspective applies to each of us.

When we find ourselves thrust into experiences that we didn’t ask for—or would never consciously choose—you can count on those situations as opportunities to be stretched—to move beyond predictability into unfamiliar terrain.  In such situations, our primal instinct to survive sheds light on our life as a whole. Recognizing aspects of our lives that are out of balance—those that don’t truly serve our greatest good—end up defining our future.   This is the human version of edge.

Edge forces us to grow—to reassess.  Real growth happens when that which no longer serves our greatest good is released.  Real growth actually moves us to become more symbiotic—with ourselves and with all of life around us.

We instinctively know that solutions to big problems are found beyond the familiar boundaries of our self-prescribed lives.  When we are willing to embrace larger actions—lifestyle changes that reflect a holistic way of life—we rapidly become more symbiotically interconnected with life.  In this way, you could say that our lives parallel the edges and margins of an ecosystem.

John Francis, also known as Planetwalker—rediscovered rhythms in nature that western culture has nearly forgotten by walking the continent of North America in silence for 17 years.  In his book, The Ragged Edge of Silence, John shares that the single most valuable thing for people to know is this:  The basis of nature is cooperation and democracy. 

Indigenous peoples have long since recognized that each unique ecosystem yields it’s own unique set of bio-restorative offerings.  It requires only that we are able to distinguish the unique qualities, characteristics and properties of the plants and creatures living therein.  It’s worth repeating that this same perspective applies to each of us.

There is infinite possibility within the natural world to restore itself as well as what ails humanity.

Through our senses of wonder, curiosity and inquiry, our individual connection with the natural world has the direct capacity to restore ourselves as whole human beings at all levels.  Our greatness, our compassion and our authenticity become buried beneath the parts of ourselves we’ve become disconnected from.

Exploring your edges will take you on a journey to your most authentic self.  A place where you feel at home with who you are; where you recognize your weaknesses and your strengths, admit your imperfections and bask in your gifts.  In honoring this most human of journeys, we automatically honor the earth that has silently supported us all of our lives.

Making peace within our inner ecosystems, we become capable of restoring lasting peace for the earth as well.

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. 🙂

Lasting, Loving Friendships ~ Life's Sweetness

“There is almost a sensual longing for communion with others who have a large vision. The immense fulfillment of the friendship between those engaged in furthering the evolution of consciousness has a quality impossible to describe.”      

        — Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

What a wonderful week to feel change in the air!

As we become our most wholehearted selves—as conduits of pure consciousness—we move into a healed and expanded state of being.  In this state, we recognize that nature’s presence has been revealing this to us all along.

Really, one could say that forgiveness is an act of self-love.  Why?

Because forgiveness is our own psychological and emotional healing balm.

True forgiveness emanates from feeling compassion for yourself, which is often inspired by another.

Perhaps on the surface, we are forgiving someone else; a partner or child.  Yet, on a deeper level, we must first love ourselves enough to recognize that maintaining our wholeness is the taproot to greater wholeness.  Perhaps you become the wise adult who now has the emotional maturity to make well-rounded choices that keep your integrity to yourself intact.

When you can touch a wound and it truly doesn’t hurt, you have truly forgiven.

What happens when we don’t?

Our sense of personal importance grows.  And we become more separated from life and other living things in a way that becomes overly self-protective.  Overly me-oriented in ways that don’t truly satisfy, creating a sense of emptiness.

Evident everywhere in the old paradigm that brought us western civilization—the desire to fill that emptiness without care and compassion for the earth creates even more unhappiness.  It reveals that we have forgotten our taproot into wholeness.

We are born with the capacity for forgiveness.  This I know this from personal experience.  Then our thinking changes, probably from absorbing learned behavior.  Happens all the time.  And no one’s immune.  Heck, even Jesus felt betrayed.

Rebirthing Wholeness: The Fruits of Composting One’s Karma

Once we get to the point of self-awareness where we realize it doesn’t matter who we learned what from—we need to heal no matter what—that’s the moment we discover we’ve had the power to heal ourselves from within all along.

Seriously, how long do we suffer just to punish whoever got into our head?

And if, like me, you believe in past lives, begin by forgiving everything you believe you did in all those past lives.  By choosing to really forgive yourself for whatever you believe you did or didn’t do that was so bad, you clean the old wounds.  This allows love to enter.

So to break with karma is actually easy, once you get the hang of it.

It comes down to this:

We move forward wholeheartedly and become fully present to the degree we love ourselves.

Another way to put this is—unconditional love IS the remedy for what ails you and me.  We can’t fully express love with another if we don’t first love ourselves.

We can’t share what we don’t have, right?

The Happiness Effect: Life as an Art

 

“Love coming out of you is the only way to be happy.  Unconditional love for yourself.”  ~ Don Miguel Ruiz

This really puts a new spin on the idea of surrender.  Surrendering to love, that is.

Imagine surrendering to loving ourselves unconditionally.

This is, in essence, what happens when we spend time in the beautiful and simply open presence of nature.  In her myriad of forms—from snow-capped peaks to balmy ocean islands—she reveals the simple beauty of her enduring presence.

In nature, we see that life finds a way to show up.  How long it takes is an interesting blend of faith and geological time.

Facets of Nature's Art, C. Walker

‘It’s about finding yourself, and expressing yourself in your own particular way.  That is why your life is an art.”  ~ Don Miguel Ruiz

Instinctive Stewardship

In 1999, Don and other progressive writers of that time foretold us that ‘the time is coming when you will become your own guru.’

Through my own intuition, as well as past, recent and current experiences, I sense that the time is here for us to accept our own divinity.  In fact—like Dorothy’s power to go home—it’s been with us all along.  Perhaps it just needed to build up a head of steam so it would be obvious.

And it’s profoundly humbling, because the same divinity is found in everyone else and every living thing on earth.

Consider this ~ the immortality that is our essence is that of love manifesting as life.

You are life manifesting as (your name here).

Life also manifests as butterflies, oceans, forests, jungles, deserts and tundra while simultaneously showing up as stars, planets and galaxies.

Now combine these concepts.

This is the root of environmental ethics—caring for the earth as you would for yourself.  

Care of the earth is the ultimate form of self-love.

The Sensuous Rose, C. Walker

In the long golden sunset shadows of the first day of September, I sat in bed writing about a fairly intimate experience.

As I wrote, I noticed my consciousness rolling through layers and layers of thoughts about why stars and planets are still moving rapidly away from us.  It seems like they’ve been doing that for as long as I can remember ~ or at least as long as telescopes have been around.

Simultaneously woven in with these thoughts were other thoughts having to do with peak experiences as well as a whole stream of unique childhood memories.  These weren’t just any sort of childhood memories, but specifically those that were glimpses of intimate conversations and events with people from my past.

Forestville, CA

Forestville, CA

There were many.  Dozens of events with my parents, neighbors, school chums, their families, places we visited—intimate experiences of all sorts—rolled through my awareness.

Funny thing was, I wasn’t consciously thinking about peak experiences or past events, I simply noticed that they would pop up with greater frequency as I pondered why everything outside our galaxy would be moving away from us.

I wondered whether or not we are also part of that universal expansion or whether our yearly spin around the sun is about as expanded as most of us get?  And now why—at the same time—was my mind taking a serious stroll down memory lane AND popping in with peak experiences?

Palpable Peaks + Intimate Vignettes = Something New

What was really palpable was how I felt from all of this pondering.  The best word I can come up with is ‘gemütlich.’  It’s a German word that means warm, pleasant and love-filled.   (An avowed word nerd, gemütlich has some very cool Indo-European roots that revolve around an inspiring blend of spirit, mind and joy.)

An experiential believer of universal consciousness, I recognized something big was dawning on me.  It seemed to revolve around the groovy feelings of love, unfettered freedom of expansive thoughts, coupled with this sense of warmth and intimacy.  I was feeling joy and delight throughout my being.

From this, I could see clearly that happiness is an outcome of circumstance, while joyfulness is more of a good mood of soul that is generated on the inner plane, having little to do with outer circumstances.

I recognized that the precious memories of my childhood were borne out of ordinary moments.  Ordinary people like me, experiencing ordinary moments of closer-than-average connection ~ a deep or special connection ~ provided the ingredients for something very valuable. These moments became the precious and sacred memories of my past.  And yet, despite being in the past, they were right here, right now, finding resonance in the present with entire streams of thought that somehow shared the same frequency—the same wavelength.

Like tuning into a radio station that has music you enjoy.  Once you find it, you seek it out.  You tune in to it.

Without consciously knowing what was happening until a bit later, I recognized that by tuning in to the delightfully deep curiosity of how our cosmos came to be, ALL the moments of my life where joy bubbled forth, where delight and curiosity reigned, where my heart led the way—were spontaneously magnetizing themselves in a sort of mellifluous mélange of harmonizing interconnections—much like how music spontaneously arises through open airspace to combine in endless forms of harmony.

And, just like in a peak experience, where all of our senses are heightened and our conscious suddenly transcends ordinary awareness—I saw and experienced the activity of awakening on a huge scale.  I was in awe, despite having had many ‘aha’ moments along the way–this one was of a universal magnitude.   I wanted to pick up the phone and call a handful of my closest metaphysical friends to tell them….but honestly, that would have compromised the experience.

What I discovered was this:  the ‘aha moment’ looks and feels like a burst of light.

Starburst cluster, courtesy of HubbleSite

And then, there is a bunch of nothingness.  Which is a GOOD thing.

At the moment of the ‘aha,’ thought particles—particularly the denser ones—previously surrounding one’s consciousness move rapidly away from the center of the burst of awareness.

 

 

 

 

Out of Nothingness…Somethingness

Then, a big idea took shape—a peak experience of the light-bearing kind, you could say.

It was this:  That the earth is waking up to itself, and we—along with all the other life forms on earth—are waking up too.

This IS the activity of life.  Life naturally, continuously, spontaneously, beautifully and elegantly—gives birth to new life.

And here’s the corollary:  To make life meaningful, we need to tune in to our CREATIVE capacities.

What does this mean for human consciousness and the future of the earth?

 

Get Creative

As far as I can tell, whatever you yearn or desire to do that exists just beyond the everyday—do it.  Notice how life changes as a result.

As Brené Brown expresses it, there are 5 key facets that re-connect us to what is uniquely meaningful to each of us.  The gifts of Brené’s years of research are right here for us to dive in to and explore.

Key #1:  We all have gifts and talents.  When we cultivate those gifts and share them with the world, we create a sense of meaning and purpose in our lives.

Key #2:  Squandering our gifts brings distress to our lives.  As it turns out, it’s not merely benign or ‘too bad’ if we don’t use the gifts that we’ve come into the world with; we pay for it with our emotional and physical well-being.  When we don’t use our talents to cultivate meaningful work, we struggle.  We feel disconnected and weighed down by feelings of emptiness, frustration, resentment, shame, disappointment, fear, and even grief.

Key #3:  Sharing our gifts and talents with the world is the most powerful source of connection with God.  Many who are searching for spiritual connection spend too much time looking up in the sky and wondering why God lives so far away. God lives within us, not above us.

Key #4: Using our gifts and talents to create meaningful work takes a tremendous amount of commitment.  Why?  Because in many cases, the meaningful work is not what pays the bills.  Some folks have managed to align everything—they use their gifts and talents to do work that feeds their souls and their families; however, most people piece it together.  I’m one of them.

Key #5:  No one can define what’s meaningful for us.  Culture doesn’t get to dictate what it is.  In fact, in our western culture, the majority of what world medias purport create precisely the opposite effect.  Like our gifts and talents, meaning is unique to each one of us.

(Excerpted from The Gifts of Imperfection, by Brené Brown)

Important note:  Be alert to self betrayal—or subtle sabotage—of your own creative urges.   Betrayal of yourself—or a friend or family member who trusts and looks to your integrity for their own self-development—is a pattern that can be re-routed, but only after first looking deep within for the place where your taproots wound themselves around someone or something outside of your own truth.

So, we can cook, write, draw, knit, paint, dance, sculpt, sing, build or re-build something—it doesn’t matter.  As long as we’re creating, we’re cultivating meaning.

Creativity is the expression of our originality.

Creativity is the act of waking up to ourselves.

Creativity is spontaneous joy in action.

Since my last post was so pragmatic, it seems to call for a counter-balance.

This post is about permaculture principles in action from a deeply personal perspective.

My hope is that it reveals the value of working with our baggage in such a way that we develop the ability to compost it, releasing the stored energy formerly resident in it so that it can transform into something else that actually becomes beneficial.

The dross

If you’ve ever had trouble letting go of unpleasant stuff that ails you, perhaps my story will provide a touch of inspiration to compost your karma.

The gold

I was recently talking to a friend who, like many people in our western culture, is living on an exhaustion treadmill of self worth = net worth = level of productivity.

She asked me, “Have you noticed how our western culture is always trying to get us away from something…and into something else?”  It was a fabulous entrée to a wonderful, juicy conversation.

It’s clear that after decades of addiction to this mindset—not to mention growing up within it during our formative years—it’s hard to surrender from go-go-going to just being fully present with what is.

Simply BEING.

Not trying to control it, plan it, design it. ~ just being with what is ~ and noticing.

From the looks of things these days, our western-cultured minds have a hard time with just being.

And I think it has to do with the mother of all emotions—shame; a feeling of not BEING enough.

This came as a big surprise to me just about 10 days ago.  A few days after that, my body got really sick.  As my body recovered, I had a strong sense that the illness had taken hold so that I could surrender to the Dance of Life even more deeply.

I didn’t really like it.

On the surface, it was just a cold passing through.  But the underbelly was of universal proportions.

To surrender to something greater than my individual self has been a vital part of my spiritual practice for decades.  Yet through this brief illness, a curious resistance to being the lead character in my life as it appears right now surfaced, revealing a silent shame.

As I stand at what feels like a precipice, the past four years my life have unearthed a deep sadness and sense of frustration.  What I’m in the process of releasing—and I have no idea how long this will take—seems to be rooted in having witnessed and experienced some family trauma over this four year period.

Tuning in closely, I recognize the dualistic nature of these experiences and how living my values despite all outward events maintained my well-being at a deep level.  The friends who helped me through this long and tough stage are amazing souls who embody values such as compassion, community, diversity, nonviolence, transparency and whole systems thinking.

Although the observations I’m about to share are my own, they reflect the uber process of transcending human experience from personal/subjective to discovering the gems of universal truth embedded in each experience.  Discovering the gem and using it consciously in life reflects a second layer of heightened consciousness.

What happens from that place becomes quite magical.

Arriving at Transparency World

So despite being on a spiritual path that I’ve tracked closely for over three decades, as evidenced by the 44 journals I’ve compiled and only just begun to look back on—despite being raised in a family of international travellers—despite years of spiritual research and practice, years of Waldorf training, coaching training, formal and self education, being a wife, mother, naturalist and artist—I was awash in sadness about how my own life didn’t look or feel the way I expected it to when I was in my 20’s planning it all out.  Ahh, being 20-something ~ full of sparkly enthusiasm, witty playfulness, adequate business savvy and eternal optimism.

Ironically, the beautiful journey of my dear friend Linda, who recently left for 5 months in Italy ~ la dolce vita! ~ was what tipped my inner balancing scales.  As we discussed her upcoming trip, she mentioned that she felt I was a source (one of many I’m sure) of inspiration for her long-planned journey.  Within a week, I was swimming in my own pity party.

But THEN came the gems, one by one.

The Noticings

So here’s how my own series of noticings evolved my awareness past the dualistic nature of ‘Person A did this’ and ‘I, Person B, am still adversely affected by it.’

I began by noticing how certain family experiences put me through a series of shocking, unexpected events that unnerved me deeply.

(Honesty and authenticity with self).

Next, through deepened compassion, I saw how these events cracked open my heart so wide, that the person I am now and the person I am becoming has grown far beyond the butterfly-traveller-life-design I planned for myself in my 20’s.

(Recognition of change in consciousness and it’s impact)

Note: This is not to say that the life plan is out the window, there’s just so much more depth to it now.

More Honesty and Authenticity

Then I noticed how these events deepened my own personal need for solace, temperance and balance.  For me, this amounts to reaching out to close friends, living into free time=quality time, and the amazing practice of extreme self care, aka., taking time to heal.

I notice how, over time, the unpredictable nature of the healing aspect irritates me.   I want it to be over!

I recognize that deepening my support network to maintain inner strength for the long-haul—whatever that looks like—is still a necessary part of my life.

This ALONE is truly une cause célébre!  It has led me to see and feel how love and gratitude truly are the universal elixirs of all life connection.

Despite my social upbringing that tells me ‘it’s not polite to burden others,’ I continue to experience far deeper feelings of love and gratitude around my close friendships.  Amazingly, these deepened feelings act as a bridge that create powerful links to deeper joys and higher resonant frequencies.  These higher frequencies in turn, continue to wash love, peace and meaning through my life, much as waves on a beach soften the stones upon which they repeatedly visit.  These same feelings apply to my mentors and teachers, of which there are both few and many.

In other words, once a deepened sense of self authenticity is activated, it is the ongoing choice of allowing the deepening to continue that attunes one’s consciousness to these higher, resonant frequencies of delight, joy, peace, contentment and flow.

Karma Composting Time is Here

The very last thing I’ve become aware of so far is this:

When we go through a powerful inner transformation, eventually the pains that once gripped us begin to fall away and compost into particulate and energy fragments that are actually beneficial for other life forms.

This was another surprise for me ~ and KEY.  I felt it intuitively, but is has been rare for me to be with the ‘drossing off’ process long enough to feel and see it actually happening.

In this way, less becomes more.

I am not a thing — a noun.  I seem to be a verb, an evolutionary process — an integral function of the universe.                 –Buckminster Fuller
