In the Present
Raising your sights
"A human being is a part of the whole, called by us ‘Universe,’ a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest - a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is akind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation and a foundation for inner security."
-- Albert Einstein
To grow in consciousness, we expand our perspectives on life. So how do we do that? The more we work with the universal -- the concept of unity and wholeness, the more everything makes sense. Parts have meaning when they are understood to be parts of a bigger picture.
Consciousness is all about relationships -- especially how the lower relates to the higher and how the darkness can exist within the light. Let opposites coexist in you without choosing one over the other( it's the balance we strive for).
I read, "Higher consciousness, enlightenments, comes from meaningful experiences and lessons passed with the understanding that there truly is only one law - the Law of Love. When one leads a life expressing this belief, the mind and heart begin to open to new realities, and other dimensional truths become known."
-Dr. Norma Milanovich & Dr. Shirley McCune
I never new until my brother phoned recently to say Bob Marley’s mom (Cedella Marley) passed on few days earlier. At 80+ she still was producing tracks (literally) and memorializing her late son with many philanthropic endeavors.
