Many people are undergoing an awakening. A waking up to to their true nature! What does this even mean.
conversations and creativity
Contemporary society has become a little rough, our frontal cortex has grown somewhat out of shape – or out of control. It’s taken over our insight; our capacity to navigate the world or the universe and many are losing their minds. A good thing right.
Well maybe not. If there is no mind, no person, nothing happening, then what’s the point?
As a counsellor, I’m finding this a tricky one to breathe into. This seems to be the existential crisis many are awakening to, within the healing crisis. Some are getting caught in a transcendental state in the void of no thing.
It’s a necessary realisation, a beautiful realisation, it serves its purpose.
And, let’s come back down to Earth people. Can’t you see it’s burning alive!
Is here to straighten things out a little. To bring us back to beginners mind, to the creativity that Non dualism has apparently transcended; to the self . The crisis of the SELF! To open up to NOW!
There is no goal. We are hoping that being in the void together, a Sangha of sorts, will bring about a shared creativity that brings insight into the truth , no bullshit!
That we take responsibility for our Self and the world.
That we gather resources and creativity and contemplation in union and love follows.
Love is not the goal but the driving force.
We hope that we can start a conversation on consciousness that brings us into reality, into the body, the mind and the spirit, into Union in this life, this breath!
What is awakening
We awaken from the conditioned mind and realise there is something more or other or else. I’ll let this guy explain it – Culadasa explains awakening from the Buddhist perspective here and it is wonderful!
This morning with ‘nondualnow’ reverberating my mind and as I live spontaneously it came to me to create this site to start a conversation, a question, an answer and so here I am. Who I am, I do not know. I live alone, almost a hermit in a thriving yet dying city. I want to connect with other awake people.
So here I am embodying my spontaneous invitation to open wide to the creativity that comes from my own experience of life. My continued awakening and hopefully yours.
Wanting to collect and share stories of Awakening. To share the creative process of consciousness and to open up dialogue of potentiality with no idea, no concept of how it will evolve. Bringing in the relative of the absolute if you will :).
Happy to answer anyone’s questions, hear anyone’s story (post in comments below) and/or see what happens as a means to imbibe and realise truth…. in the mean time my heart mind hopes you enjoy my crazy wisdom art that may pop up occasionally.. spontaneously of course 🙂
Anyway I’m off to my non-practice practice, for no reason at all!
Here is an amazing talk on spirituality and creativity by Jean Houston that will blow your mind
Warmth from my heart
