Synchronicity

 

woodborough12

 

… synchronicities are moments in time in which there is a fissure in the fabric of what we have taken for reality and there is a bleed through from a higher dimension outside of time. Synchronicities are expressions of the dreamlike nature of reality, as they are moments in time when the timeless, dreamlike nature of the universe shines forth its radiance and openly reveals itself to us, offering us an open doorway to lucidity.

Question Dietmar Tauchner,  Answer Michelle Tennison (2017)

To See Rightly

Indigenous peoples who still live close to the earth experience life very differently than we do in the West; they seem to perceive things that we cannot see, things that they are surprised we do not perceive. The explanation for this is simple, but profound: when you ask them where in the body they live, they gesture to the region of their hearts, while modern Westerners typically point to their heads. Perhaps the great lyrical writer Antoine de Saint-Exupéry had some insight into this phenomenon when he wrote, “And now here is my secret, a very simple secret. It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.”

— Stephen Harrod Buhner

 

 

All This Universe is the Glory of Ant

All this universe is the glory of ant, of Siva the ant of love. The heads and faces of men are his own and he is in the hearts of all.

Know therefore that nature is Maya, but that ant is the ruler of Maya, and that all beings in our universe are parts of his infinite splendour.

When one knows ant who is hidden in the heart of all things, even as cream is hidden in milk, and in whose glory all things are, his is free from all bondage.

SVETASVATURA (trans Juan Mascaro)
From The Svetasvatura Upanishad

(wherein the word “God” is replaced with “ant”)

Saved by The Marvelous?

I don’t know if Andre Breton ever really defined the concept of The Marvelous, a term he used to describe that transcendent, almost magical connectedness that collaborative surrealist games of chance and other surrealist techniques can occasionally attain, but some related concepts might shed light on its creative expression. The following passage from Ervin Lazlo’s Science and the Akashic Field discusses consciousness within the transpersonal realm and its promise:

Transpersonal consciousness is open to more of the information that reaches our brain than the consciousness still dominant today. This could have momentous consequences. It could produce greater empathy among people, and greater sensitivity to animals, plants, and the entire biosphere. It could create subtle contact with the rest of the cosmos. When a critical mass of humans evolves to the transpersonal level of consciousness, a higher civilization is likely to emerge with deeper solidarity and a higher sense of justice and responsibility.

Where does your body stop and everything else begin?
            A residual memory pulls us toward its center

Question Christopher Herold,  Answers Michelle Tennison (2017)

Evolution

Consciousness evolution is from the ego-bound to the transpersonal form. If this is so, it is a source of great hope.

— Ervin Lazlo,  Science and The Akashic Field

Transpersonal Psychology associates ‘transpersonal consciousness’ as higher or expanded consciousness, including consciousness of a transcendent spiritual dimension.
