Poem: somewhere there is a place

somewhere there is a place
where the mind no longer understands
where all knowledge seems not the answer
where the mind acknowledges it does not know itself
where it sees clearly that it does not truly see
where a cry from some hidden place emerges to truly Know
and upon this cry its ceaseless movements fall upon a hush

somewhere there is a place
where desire’s emotions no longer fulfill
where feeling becomes something tasteless and worn
where its wild dueling energies seem a tired constant battle
where Life’s force for living feels suffocated and lost
where a deeper yearning cries from somewhere beneath
and upon this yearning its ceaseless movements calm

somewhere there is a place
where the body’s sensations seem to grow dull
where activities always seem at war with each other
where living becomes an eventual negotiation with death
where body’s cells feel as if imprisoned in a weary shell
where an unknown aspiration blazes from hidden depths
and upon this aspiration its ceaseless movements still

somewhere there is a place
where Knowledge is purest Light, endless Vision,
where Feeling is pure and serene, a struggle between Joy and Joy
where Effort is a harmony of endless embodied dreams
where Body is an organism of action fueled by Soul
where Humanity transforms and becomes the Freedom it seeks
where Heaven and Earth unite as the One Living God

somewhere there is a Place
somewhere there is Something Else
somewhere there is a vast Someone
somewhere …… where we dare to venture Beyond

Our Communicating Cells

At this very moment, your cells are talking.  Yes, they are talking.  In their own way.  They are communicating to you constantly, in every moment, of their world, their life, their existence.  Which is your CellPainting2existence as well.  But we have been trained to not believe this to be true.  We have been told to either see the body and the material world as something sinful and wrong, void of truth and God, or to see the material world as the only part of our existence, limiting our sense of reality and our ability to seek the truths which lie beyond the material world, beyond the scientific approach to matter’s physical reality.  We have been given opposing images and told to choose one or the other.  And yet the cells are communicating with us.  They are telling us their own story.  They are trying to break through the tyranny of our mental perception of life and reality in order to show us a different reality underneath, behind, beyond, our sense of things.  They want us to pay attention to them, and are crying out in their own ways for us to listen.  And to change.  They have a mighty story to share with us.  An adventure beyond any adventure that we humans, or the Earth as a whole, have ever embarked upon.  This adventure has been going on for a very long time.  And yet it is just beginning.  The time is now to begin a new journey in our perception of reality, in our understanding of ourselves and life, and a new journey in transforming ourselves and the world we are inherently interconnected with in a way that is so profound that when we truly begin to dynamically embody this new way of seeing, feeling, sensing, perceiving existence, well . . . we will awaken suddenly into . . . . Something Else.

The cells are my heroes.  Just think about it for a moment.  Imagine and feel in your own body the billions, trillions of cells at work in you at this very instant.  Yes, they are all at work right now.  They are ALWAYS at work, serving us, serving the Divine Soul that leads us, right down into the cells and atoms of our bodies.  They are working to keep us alive, to give us the life that we live in every moment.  And they do so with utter selflessness, with such a total self-giving that they do not stop to “think” what they are doing or “notice” what they are doing.  They are consecrated servers to the Divine within us, to our Soul which is the flame of our being originated from that very Divine Source which animates all of life, breathing through everything, manifesting through all.  The cells serve the Divine within us, even as they also serve us in our actions and choices and movements throughout the seconds and minutes and hours and days and years of our lives.  They listen to us as we demand, command, all that we “want” or “desire.”  They do their very best to create what we signal them to be and do.  And yet, there is so much confusion about what we want, just as there is in the world around us, and within us.  Our mind and thoughts say so many things (so often contradictory from one minute to the next), our vital emotions feel and express so many other things (so often contradictory from one second to the next!), and the world around us is telling us to be so many things, to receive and embody so many differing images, sights, sounds, sensations.  We are a vast ocean of dictators, everything and everyone wanting us to be what it feels, what it thinks, what it sees, what it senses, what it desires, chooses, acts upon.  The cells receive all of this.  They are constantly receiving all the messages that we as individuals, and as a vastly interconnected collectivity, experience and re-create or express.  Our cells become these images of life and repeat these images as long as we choose to allow them to occupy our consciousness – our mental consciousness, our vital/emotional consciousness, our physical consciousness, our spiritual consciousness.  They are constantly processing all that we are and become (or rather they are becoming, first, what we are ultimately becoming and being), while also listening, and being guided in their secret Depths, to that Force of Life, that Source of Being which we may call God or the Divine, which is at the heart of everything, and yet also transcends all.  The cells are guided by this Source, are embodying this Source, while we enslave them in the limited and narrow perceptions and desires that we identify with.  Just as we can only become something new, experience something new in our lives, if we allow ourselves to let go of who and what we think we are, of all our past, the cells can only begin to truly reflect and embody something new if they are healed of all the past impressions that are held within their substance.  Unless they can let go of the past and be free to become only what that Divine Influence in their depths infuses into them, they will simply continue to reproduce what is familiar and habitual to their nature, which we are in control of (to a degree).  The cells aspire to be free, to be what they really are underneath our mental and vital and spiritual commands and directions, just as we aspire to truly be free within ourselves, but have not yet found the key to letting go completely.  The cells, our little miniscule, yet powerful, heroes, hold the key.  They hold the key to all transformation on this Earth.  The future of humanity and life on Earth is slowly penetrating into our existence through the most persevering and sincere of all workers – the cells.

Love and Human Unity

There are many qualities and powers of life that will need to be involved in the building of Human Unity upon Earth.  Yet, ultimately the presence of  a true Human Unity will emerge through one key Divine Power that lies at the Essence of humanity and life:

Love

Human Unity will exist only through humanity’s capacity to Love each other totally and completely, without placing conditions upon our ability to love in any situation or with any human being, without asking “why” or wondering “how,” without needing any justifications.

A One Love which loves every human as a part of oneself, as a part of one same Mind, Life-Force, Spirit, Body, Soul, and Divine Existence.

A Perfect and Harmonious Love which offers ItSelf in a pure, unique manner and way that is right for each individual situation, each relationship, each person, which inspires in each Being the perfect action and movement to make in the exact right moment.

A Free Love which loves humanity whether one receives love in return or not, which offers love and infuses love into all Life around it.

An Expressive Love which gives ItSelf to all humanity as its own manifestation of Beauty.

An Infinite Love which loves all humanity’s diversity and gives humans the capacity to Identify ourselves with every human and all that exists as an intimate part of ourselves, our Soul-Being which contains All.

A Courageous Love which loves also the darkest side of human nature, the ignorant and the false and the painful, even as we seek to transform it.

A True Love which reveals the intimate union of our minds as the One Mind; a Love which reveals the intimate union of our life-force as the One Vital; a Love which reveals the intimate union of our material bodies, our infinite Cells, as the One Body; a Love which reveals the intimate union of our individual souls as the One Soul existent in All.

A Powerful Love which surrenders our entire personal and collective Existence – our identities, our personalities, our desires and preferences and wishes, our thoughts, ideas, feelings, sensations, and actions, our very breath and vision, our total perception and experience of Reality; surrendering ourselves to That which is beyond humanity, to that Great Something Else which inspires the very Evolution and Unfolding of every moment, every atom and cell and Soul, every movement of Life.

An Intimate Love which binds atoms together to create form, a Love which binds cells together to create Life,  a Love that vibrates our existence in unison as the One Same Force of Consciousness, Force of Life, Force of Substance, Force of Love Itself – the Divine in ItSelf Embodied as Humanity and all of Existence.

A Nurturing Love which embraces the Universe as a Whole while caressing every particle and each human as a vibration and manifestation of Its own Divine Substance of Love.

A Consuming Love which dissolves and transforms all perception or experience of division and separation, which awakens the intimate Oneness that dwells within and between every cell, every mind, every heart, every body and Soul.

A Vast Love which sees all as Love, which feels all as Love, which knows all as Love.  A Love which is capable of loving each human as That Love Supreme, for We Are That Love.  There is nothing but That Love.

A Love which simply Is All Humanity at its core,

and which, through humanity and Life, expresses Love

as the Beauty of  an Infinitely and Eternally Unfolding Divine Unity.
