The spider, my master teacher, Part 3

Dreaming, weaving and embodying a whole new web of life in the age of Covid-19 amid sweeping social, economic, and political transformation.

“Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and right-doing, there is a field.”

Picking up where I left off in Part 2….Our very dear shaman friend, Sarah Hawk, Jaime, and another friend helped me piece together some aspects of where I “went.” Apparently, during those 90 minutes, I went up into the spirit world and onto a rainbow where I was intensely discussing the current situation on earth with a couple of Asian masters. And, of course, I was also joking a bit with them. Given that there was still a lot more for me to “do” in the 3-D realm and that I really wanted to be back with Jaime and our son, Sean, I eventually finished my deliberations with them and returned to my body.

I’ve had a few conscious glimpses of what I just described, but honestly, as I really “tune in” to where I went, I realize and very much appreciate that I simply fell into the arms of The Embrace. A “place” where all there really is, is: one sacred sound; one brilliant, healing light; one voice; one answer; no questions; one Why; one How; one mantra; one breath; one beginning; one ending; one re-membering; one knowing; one heart; one river; one mountain; one ocean; one valley; one human; one four-legged; one winged one; one finned one; one plant; one stone; one tree; one flower; one insect; one solar system; one galaxy; one universe; one multiverse; a luminous void; all of which are the infinite expressions of the one Love and one Embrace that is the essential nature of all. There is/was/will be nothing else. There is nothing else to say, to seek, to know, to remember, to explore, but all we need to “do” is simply to recognize and experience this Love in all its infinite forms and to humbly bow to its perfect expressions. It is eternal: it was never created nor can it ever be destroyed. It simply is.

Rumi expressed it well:

Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and right-doing,
there is a field.
I’ll meet you there.
When the soul lies down in that grass,
the world is too full to talk about.
Ideas, language, even the phrase “each other”
doesn’t make any sense.
The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you.
Don’t go back to sleep.
You must ask for what you really want.
Don’t go back to sleep.
People are going back and forth across the doors
where the two worlds touch.
The door is round and open.
Don’t go back to sleep.

It’s really rather simple. We are being asked to remember our beginnings and who we really are. We are being asked to not fall asleep and to come out of our shadows and cobwebs and into the light and to see and live through the brilliance of our soul.

We are living in a time when we collectively are finally and clearly becoming aware of our many deeply-embedded biases and shadows. We are witnessing an entire world that is struggling to honestly face its fractured history so that it can move into its next evolutionary phase of unity and oneness.

How can we more skillfully, artfully, and heartfully heal as individuals, as a community, as a nation, and as a single human family and as well honor our unique differences and reaffirm our underlying unity?

Love said to me…there is nothing that is not me.—Rumi
