The Yellow Brick Road; Brick (5); There Are Others?

If you think you identify with anybody in this book, be sure to remember that I don’t have any “good” or “bad” people.  You and I did not design people.  God designed people.  What I am trying to do is to discover why God included humans in Universe.

I don’t think Light is what is needed in this world.

One hears the “New Age Spiritual Type” say something like,  “Love is the answer,” or “All there is just Light and Love.”

Or something like that.

Perhaps, our mission, our “Asana” (Asana means yoga  pose) is to find The Light in the Darkness and “release” it.

We need to “go there” before we can reveal it.

Perhaps this is how we will reconnect to “Source?”

Perhaps it is a Process?

 

 

Are you Willing to Inquire?

The Yellow Brick Road; Brick (4); The Yin and The Yang

Science recognizes many fundamentally complementary aspects of Universe.  The black hole is not a negative.  As implosion is to explosion, the black hole phenomenon is to the inside-out, expanding Universe.  The black hole is the inverse phase — the outside-inning phase — of cosmic evolution.  What humans have spontaneously identified as good and bad — or as positive and negative — are evolutionary complementations in need of more accurate identifications.  

On the left, an optical image from the Digitized Sky Survey shows Cygnus X-1, outlined in a red box. Cygnus X-1 is located near large active regions of star formation in the Milky Way, as seen in this image that spans some 700 light years across. An artist’s illustration on the right depicts what astronomers think is happening within the Cygnus X-1 system. Cygnus X-1 is a so-called stellar-mass black hole, a class of black holes that comes from the collapse of a massive star. New studies with data from Chandra and several other telescopes have determined the black hole’s spin, mass, and distance with unprecedented accuracy.

Most of my favorite songs are from the 70’s through the 80’s.  

I guess it makes sense because those were my formative years when I was creating and connecting to an “Identity.”

Isn’t it ironic that once you awaken to the spiritual path the “work” is really to deconstruct what you have been building all your life…..  

 

 

Identity; Ego?

The Yellow Brick Road: Brick (3); The Middle Path

Since complementarity is essential to the success of eternally regenerative Universe, the phenomenon identified as the opposite of positive cannot be negative, nor can it be bad, since the interopposed phenomena known heretofore as good and bad are essential to the 100-percent success of eternally regenerative Universe.  They are both good for the Universe.

I “get it” Bucky!  

You are saying that everything in our Universe; the good, the bad and the ugly;  

Truth, Beauty and goodness,

Everything is essential and that to label it as good or bad is not required?

Right?  Is that it?  

The Buddha might have a different way of explaining what Bucky is writing here.

Let’s explore Buddha for a moment.

The Buddha awakened to the suffering of the world around him.  

His life was a journey in search for THE CAUSE of Suffering and Chaos; THE EFFECT.  

And, if he found it he wanted to know if there was a way to eradicate it.

Critical Path

“Critical Path is a state-of-the-art summary of human evolution.”   –                                  Marilyn Ferguson, author of The Aquarian Conspiracy

On the back cover of one of my copies of Critical Path reads….”

Today we find ourselves in the midst of the greatest crisis in the history of the human race.  Technology has placed in our hands almost unlimited power at the very moment when we have run up against the limits of our resources aboard Spaceship Earth, as the crisis of the late twentieth century — political, economic, environmental, and ethical — determine whether or not humanity survives.

Critical Path is both a history of humanity’s social, political and economic systems and a road map for survival.  

The book is soooooo comprehensive.  

It is an astounding read.  

Not easy but definitely worth the effort.

“The Yellow Brick Road” is an introduction to a step-by-step process of awakening to and engaging, with integrity,  the “field of play;” “The Territory.”  

REMEMBER, the map is not the territory.

The Yellow Brick Road; Brick (1); The Mystery

I “think” that we are not so much experiencing a paradigm shift but rather a paradigm expansion.

 

A great Zen Master once said,

Abstract orbit circles, artwork.

“The Practice of Zen is like traveling along a big circle…….

 

Does not matter much where on the circle you are.  What is ‘”critical” is that you don’t get stuck.  Keep moving.”

 

Zen has it’s roots planted in the seventh limb of the Eight Limb Path of Yoga; Dhyana.

Dhyana is absorption in deep meditation.

It is the immediate step prior to the goal…the destination ….Samadhi.

Samadhi is bliss/enlightenment.  It means to see without thought.

Yoga means union.

Samadhi is union with Source.

So, Why am I writing this?  Why am I starting in this way?

Without argument, we (humanity) are at a tipping point.
