Quote of the Day – June 11 2012

““Nature loves courage. You make the commitment and nature will respond to that commitment by removing impossible obstacles. Dream the impossible dream and the world will not grind you under, it will lift you up. This is the trick. This is what all these teachers and philosophers who really counted, who really touched the alchemical gold, this is what they understood. This is the shamanic dance in the waterfall. This is how magic is done. By hurling yourself into the abyss and discovering its a feather bed.”
― Terence McKenna

Bits and Pieces tonight.. Random Thoughts… Wool gathering from the abyss…

NOW is the eternal Phoenix ever reborn from its own ashes as its consumed….
Universe, please let me be the person my friends on the internet believe me to be…
How Freudian is it that Jack had a beanstalk and Alice had a rabbit hole…Both of those are coming of age analogues as well as Campbell mono myths…and both involved either a climb or a leap of faith…

Sometimes the best way to clear your head is by breaking a taboo, even if its one of thought…What is it that you have been taught culturally or tribally not to think about or question? How does reality change for you if you question it? That in itself  becomes another rabbit hole or beanstalk trip doesn’t it?  And so the reality kaleidoscope turns…

Blessings, G

Quote of the Day – October 16 2011 — Some Musings — Pre-Occupied

“Healing takes courage, and we all have courage, even if we have to dig a little to find it. “

        –Tori Amos

 

Occupy Vancouver in its first day has been amazing. 5000+ people (I have a feeling that if you counted everybody who came and went throughout the day, the figure was much higher). People coming together because they realize the need for change in how things have been done. Whether they were talking about changes in our political systems, our financial systems, our educational systems or in the way we view things, there was a deep realization that we need to evolve new ways of dealing with ourselves, each other and our planet. Still there was more joy than anger. We shared laughs, marches, slogans, hugs and purpose. I look forward to watching the occupation movement evolve. Will change come from it or will it be ultimately a release  of built up social pressure, I have no surety. Something has begun with this movement in this next month and I look forward to seeing it continue. Few things in my life have made me feel quite as proud as participating in today has.

I don’t know who this lad is but somehow he and his sign  symbolized today nicely for me. I want this boy (and all children including of course Zev) to grow up in a world of growing hope and happiness.
