Is God mad? On seeing the flaw in the mirror

earthuni

Is god mad?
by Jena Griffiths

god is a noun and a verb
particle and wave
running through your veins
endlessly becoming

god is a mirror
showing god to lighten up
or get more serious
or more urgent
or more real
or more loving
or more playful
or more sensitive

or less ?
less judgmental
or less divisive
or less narcissistic
or less pushy

god is your capacity to act
or your capacity to receive
your response-ability
god is yin. god is yang
god is I. god is an eye
god is all eyes. seen and unseen.

god is in your face
god is everywhere
god is nowhere
god is within

god is trans-personal
god is trans-gender
god is trans-color or creed

god is pure joy
and joy disguised as everything else
god is depression
god is surprise
god is boring?
perhaps only when you are?

pure judgement
or pure opportunity
to feel deeply

god is a field of dreams waiting
to be played out

god is a dimmer switch
at your fingertips
in your heart

switched on, god is love
switched off, god is lack
hate is god totally, withheld

who turns the switch?
whoever is in charge
who’s in charge?
whoever’s playing

The flaw in all mirrors is that everything gets reversed.
There’s only one of us here and lots of very wonky mirrors to keep things interesting.

How to see beyond the flaw/ floor? Reverse engineering.
He won’t forgive me = I won’t forgive me
Byron Katie is the master teacher of this technique.

Here’s a great video by Gregg Braden on blowing the dust off some of the hidden mirrors around us.

and what if we put a mirror up in the shape of a whirl, the I of the storm?

The space between stories

radical-no-storyThere’s a story trying to write itself thru me, thru you, through all of us. I’ve been writing a lot to you my journal about this but not putting it out there into the world. Lots of half written unfinished stories, like our lives in a way… the joy is in the journey not in the completion.

Why unfinished?
An attempt to blow away the fog and numbness and look in the mirror. More clearly. More honestly. What am I trying to fix? What has popped up a lot this year is the America election. So I have a notebook full of half written stories about what to do. Some funny but unfinished. Unfinished each time I realise I’m trying to put lipstick on the mirror instead of onto my myself.
So what I’m doing to do is give myself a 40 day challenge and attempt to finish some or all of them, and put them out into the world where they belong.
Why 40 days? There’s a countdown going on. Actually multiple countdowns. Some are of global significance, some cultural, religious, or seasonal….

For example?
days to the final vote re who will be president of US.
(Why not dual vs duel? joint leadership or something like the Swiss System where there are a council of 7 who play musical chairs annually, rotating the hot seat and the load…)
Perhaps the most positive action we can take is practice “radical no story” from now til then to allow space/an open window for divine inspiration to come through.
Here’s some advice from Thomas Huebl: On being a mature Citizen of the world

Other countdowns
until next open Earthuni interview
until Solstice
days until Christmas
to year end

365 days until we arrive back in the same curve of an endless spiraling story, hopefully in a higher place than the previous year….

Some important dates along the way:
Thursday Dec 8 I’ll be interviewing Markus Hinzig on grounding a higher level of consciousness. Mark this date in your calendar. It is not to be missed. This call is going to blow your socks right off your feet.
What’s it about?
It’s the hidden side of grounding, and why many of us can’t do it properly. And what this has to do with the space between stories.
more information by clinking here

The space between stories is where there is no us vs them. This is where solid ground is. The open window into new story is through no story.

Quit whining and get back to work!

A message to all healers, light workers, mindfulness teachers, artists, writers and creative types out there in the world right now:
Earthuni

I first saw this this quote in Elizabeth Gilbert’s book on writing titled “Big Magic”. Gilbert told a wonderful story about how a young film maker had written to his hero, Werner Herzog, complaining about how difficult it was to be a film maker. Herzog wrote back a tough but energizing reply that included a call to action: quit whining and get back to work! I love this quote so much I have it up on my wall.
What to do about current world events? There’s work to be done and you know you were born for it. Spin your magic.

Listen this interview: on grounding a higher consciousness – Interview with Markus Hirzig

Are you flying too high or too low? Think like a pilot.

screen-shot-2016-12-05-at-10-33-53Years ago, in my early 20s, I took flying classes and earned a PPL (private pilot’s licence).
(Why? No idea, probably so I could write this story.)

The first (and only) long flight I piloted was a cross country exam from a gravel air strip near Johannesburg to an airstrip on the coast just north of Durban. My task was to fly there. Another student was to fly back. The flying instructor was our passenger. En route was a range of mountains called the Drakensburg

(translated = Dragon mountains). We were flying a few thousand feet above the ground. It was perfect weather, hardly a cloud in the sky. The instructor recommended, just to be safe, to go up an additional thousand feet. I thought he was a silly old man (of about 40!), being totally over cautious. We were already a few thousand above the highest peaks.

On becoming a Mature Citizen of the World

Mystical teacher Thomas Hübl offers commentary on recent world events:

Some key points:

“What we really need in this time is people who see, people who presence and people who participate in the current process. We call this global social witnessing….This means I’m precisely watching my feeling awareness of being a responsible citizen of this world. So when I see the current processes and I feel whatever I feel, or I am aware of the fact that I stopped feeling, then I am very precise with my inner space, because the collective shadows, and a lot of what we see at the moment in the world is collective unconscious dynamics that are being surfaced strongly in order to come into the light… and whatever it looks like it’s more important how much I can stay in a state of responding. Responsibility = my ability to respond to the current life circumstances and/or I see that I shut down my interior and I cannot stay connected. Or I don’t want to stay connected. Or I see how I start resisting the processes in the world. And I think that a lot is at stake at the moment in the world…crucial times for the global community….

“Complexity is simplicity in the right cup…. when we work on the base and on the grounding we open the cup..create a bigger container for the system to grow.. because we are going to a new age in our society a lot of new information comes in ..this information comes in as energy, as light, through the speeding up of technology..this creates a lot of pressure..the base needs to grow and if the base needs to grow the tendency to become regressive is very high…
5.00
we are facing two levels of stress: a strong integration stress and we are facing a strong evolutionary stress because there is an upgrading of information that creates a lot of pressure onto many many people..
If people are conscious of this process they can channel this energy into their base and into the world and increase the game board of the world. If not, we become regressive and we go back in space and time into functions that are prior to our current development.
People who can hold an inner space, who can stay grounded, who can stay in their natural discernment or naturally have a multi- perspective inner capacity, who can stay related to the external, that can practice presence, stay connected to innovation to have a future. That’s where we need to apply all aspects in order to respond to the current circumstances from a mature self…
the higher levels of our consciousness are less stable and connection is the only thing that stabilizes it..
8.00
..the moment I contract and shut down I also have no future…

“…our time is about presence, an alive participation, that every one of us will need to become a grownup mature citizen of this world, and this means that we don’t wait any more for other people or other structures or other organizations or governments to take care of the stuff we need to take care of.. that everyone takes care of what we need to care of, then many things will be taken care of…

10.00
“…not continue to perpetuate the indifference…the tissue of life is full of collective scars.. …it needs everyone of us who can stay conscious and present in this and also deal with the inner stuff that comes up in order to know what’s the right action in this time.” Thomas Huebl

The Flowering of America?

earthuni Something devastating happened in my garden this spring that reminds me of what is busy playing on American soils.
For years I’ve watched one particular tall poppy plant in my garden with awe and delight as tight furry buds burst forth, unfold their delicate petals and bloom.

This year, however, something else happened. The first, most promising bud hung too low over a walkway and was decapitated early. Others buds didn’t form fully and the entire plant seemed to be struggling. It was an Read more
