Illusion of Time

“Time is only experienced by the events which occur within it; and I maintain that the early universe had very little going on and consequently time moved very, very slowly. The character of time as we approach the present is that there are more and more physical domains, and energetic domains in which change can occur. For example, the early universe was a pure plasma, a pure swarm of unassociated electrons. You didn’t even have atomic systems, let alone chemistry, molecular chemistry, life, complex speciated life, and dynamically balanced planetary ecosystems. Each one of those more complex phenomena crystallized out, or emerged, if you will, from the previous systems that had come into existence.

So when I say time is speeding up, what I mean really is, more and more is happening. And if you ask the question, ‘Well, what would be the ultimate state of connectivity, or of happening?’ It’s when all points are connected to all other points. Somehow this concept of connectivity is intimately linked to the concept of complexity, and so really what I’m saying is that the universe is getting its act together. It’s connecting the dots. It’s bringing everything into co-relationship with everything else. And somehow it does this through the production of consciousness.”

Estrangement is Alienation

nature-sacred

“Our estrangement from nature and the unconscious became entrenched roughly two thousand years ago, during the shift from the Age of the Great God Pan to that of Pisces that occurred with the suppression of the pagan mysteries and the rise of Christianity. The psychological shift that ensued left European civilization staring into two millennia of religious mania and persecution, warfare, materialism, and rationalism.

The monstrous forces of scientific industrialism and global politics that have been born into modern times were conceived at the time of the shattering of the symbiotic relationships with the plants that had bound us to nature from our dim beginnings. This left each human being frightened, guilt-burdened, and alone. Existential man was born.”

― Terence McKenna, Food of the Gods: The Search for the Original Tree of Knowledge

The Possession of Things

eclipse

“The value systems that aggrandize the possession of things, the tearing up of the Earth, competition, classism, racism, sexism, have led us to the brink of catastrophe. Now, I think, we have to abandon Western cultural values, and return to the deeper wisdom of the body in connection with the plants. That’s the seamless web that leads us back into the heart of nature.” – Terence McKenna

Protecting What Belongs to Everyone

commons

Earth is a sacred and magical place. There’s enough natural abundance here for all of us to be fed, clothed and housed many times over. And yet billions of people still go to bed hungry, live in devastating conditions, and are forced to eke out an existence in the most dangerous and toxic of realities. All life, yours, mine, ours, comes from the planet’s freely given elements. But when it comes time to return the favor, to care for the earth as it cares for us, a handful of elites have persuaded us that what we ought to do is treat the earth like an endless storehouse, and put the very life systems that we all depend upon up for sale to the highest bidder. If we’re going to have a future, we’ve got to reverse the equation and start to manage those things that all life depends on in a way that respects life above all else, including profit. […]

The process of transforming nature into commodities opens up an important question: who owns the trees that cover the land, the minerals beneath the soil, or the fish in the oceans? Don’t these things belong to everyone in common? When corporations and states assume the right to destroy essential forests, mine mountains of finite minerals, and strip the seas of life, they are taking something that rightly belongs to everyone, that is needed for all life to exist, and selling it off for their own private advantage. This is called “enclosure” of the commons.

This process of enclosure is gaining pace all over the world, particularly in the global South. As a condition for receiving loans from the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund (IMF), developing countries are being forced to privatize their commons – to enclose them for private use. This means giving multinational corporations the right to exploit their natural resources and public services for private profit, to the benefit of a tiny elite rather than for the good of the people, and with little consideration for the planet.

No Bud Breaks Open Alone

We are not here on Earth to be alone but to be a part of a living community, a web of life in which all is sacred. Like the cells of our body, all of life is in constant communication, as science is just beginning to understand. No bird sings in isolation, no bud breaks open alone. And the most central note that is present in life is its sacred nature… Hearing its presence speak to us, we feel this great bond of life that supports and nourishes us all. Today’s world may still at times make us feel lonely, but we can then remember what every animal, every insect, every plant knows — and only we have forgotten: the living sacred whole.
— Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee

The More Beautiful World Our Hearts Know Is Possible – Charles Eisenstein

Filmed in the fading light on the shores of Northern Scotland, this short film captures Charles Eisenstein in a moment of grief and reflection. The familiar story of the past is crumbling, while the new story has yet to arrive. In a time of social and ecological crisis, what can we as individuals do in this space between?

Readings: Volume 4

Tree

  • Catching the Bug of Synchronicity: Synchronicity was one of Jung’s most profound yet least understood discoveries, in part because it cannot be appreciated until we personally step into and experience the synchronistic realm for ourselves. Jung’s discovery of synchronicity was in a sense the parallel in the realm of psychology to Einstein’s discovery of the law of relativity in physics.
  • A Traveler’s Guide to Synchronicity: Jung suggested that the phenomenon of synchronicity seems to cluster around impactful, transformative, and important events.
  • What Is Synchronicity?: Synchronicity has long been seen as a universal sign that one is on his or her true path. The classical Chinese theories on medicine, philosophy and even building are built on the science of meaningful coincidences. They don’t ask what causes what, but rather what likes to occur with what.
  • Falling in Love With the Earth: Francis’ Faithful Ecology: Pope Francis reflects on our various ecological ills. He reflects on anthropogenic/human-caused global warming, water scarcity, biodiversity loss, the dangers of unlimited consumerism, the dangers of unlimited and overused technology, “a misguided anthropocentrism,” economic growth, and the list goes on.
  • Decolonizing Humanity by Reconnecting with the Earth: The invasion of indigenous lands has left many settlers without a real connection to place. How do we heal this and go about restoring balance?
  • The Disconnection between Money and Reality: Money is such a widely-accepted phenomenon, but is it anything more than an abstract concept?
  • Naomi Klein: We Can Save Ourselves, but Only If We Learn to Work With Nature: The author and social activist introduced a Vatican conference linking the Pope’s climate encyclical to the key U.N. conferences later this year.
  • Robert Redford: Our Last Chance: United Nations remarks on the urgency of climate action.
  • Craig Chalquist: Terrapsychology: “The Environment” is You!: Isn’t it odd that most of our psychologies treat the mind as entirely separate from the living world? That our standardized concepts of mental health make no reference to the health of our surroundings?
  • The 11 Spiritual Truths of an Awakened Soul: We adults were born into a world saturated in an old paradigm of religious dogma. In many ways those teachings were very beautiful for their time. But humanity needs something more now. Why? Because we are evolving.

We are all children of the same universe.
