I want to share some research on women’s' history, archetypes, shadow and their connections, past and present.. I want us to share our stories of how we have been impacted by these things and where to go from "here."

This is free aka priceless!

Sharing information, exploring ideas and appreciating that diversity "enriches" experience frames this event. I also like to think about it as a foray into healing the culture and self at once...synchronicity enhances the energy aka raises the vibration.
So come ye pioneers and explorers, ye renegades and poets, curiosity seekers and storytellers..thank you!

Ballard (skate) Bowl RIP

 The Ballard Bowl RIP 

A year or so later the Grindline Ballard Bowl was torn down and a smaller less utilized skateboard bowl was built a few feet from the originals location. You see, that was the official reason to take down another piece of the "commons."

Trust, Surrender and Rebellion

RE: Accidents happen for a purpose-or do they? 

After a smashing fall a few months ago my take away is yes. I learned to give and receive in a way I would never have encountered on purpose.  A cost of living example that actually reawrds the one paying the price!

I have been learning to listen with my gut and so far  it is the best way to describe the inner knowing channel. What we choose to pick up is a mystery and yet when something reiterates again and again in many ways, through many people and situations, well so be it. I am learning to pay attention and try to learn from the experience. I believe it is how we learn to navigate our soul path, destiny or that potential inside us that struggles to grow.

As our culture doesn't even have a decent vocabulary for this emergence, i am making it up as I go. Many others are doing in kind, so i know i am not alone, though our accounts differ and so do the words. Eventually words will attach and knowledge will spread through the realm.

Anyway, my rather unsettling year seems to be dancing around the concept of  "trusting  others."

It really grabbed me when i slipped on the concrete steps at the UW campus one day prior to April Fool's Day. A gentle rain was falling and i was all psyched by a class in biological evolution. I wanted to see if the leaps would be explored and/or at least get some current information about them.

I was on my way to check out a media/video class across the campus, jostling book bag and handbag and being unmindful. .

So i ran into fate.  A double flight of concrete steps, slippery where the old aggregate had been polished by pedestrians over the years, took me down. 

The thing that irks me is that I almost grabbed the handrail but a voice in my head over ruled this bit of common sense.  That voice belonged to a therapist that had told my dad to not look down, to walk "normal" so his kinetic abilities weren't hampered. (not verbatim, just the essence) That "voice
 of authority" hijacked my brain.  I took a dive and slid down several stairs. According to one witness "i surfed."

Free falling feels slow motion enough to feel regret. I landed and picked my head up, then eased myself into a sitting position. That was as good as it got. Trouble.

Several students gathered around, asking to help, being wonderfully solicitous.  They were adorable and i so appreciated their empathy, concern and just for stopping.  A campus security woman showed up and called 911. One young woman started to go to class then returned, saying she couldn't leave until I was "rescued."  I fell in love with them all.

Now trust for the human being is one thing and trust in the authoritative command is quite another. However sitting there in pain and comforting others, I surrendered to the moment. No anger, no blame or shame or attempts to rewind time was useful at the moment. I surrendered to destiny and changed my position to look for the "lesson." Some days it is all there is!

To be continued.

Divine Pagan

 Take Me to Church by Hozier
We are beings of spirit and consciousness, invigorated by vital energy. We are evolutional by Nature and conscious by Love.

 God is Love (Jesus of Nazareth)

Love is an emotion and a VERB!

We are Born of Stars (M Kaku) and Made of Soil (Dr. Shiva Vandana)

We are Actualizers  of Belief entwined with all other actualizers. (inspired by A Goswami)

We are relationship centric, socially wired and connected.  I suspect that deep down we all know we are part of something larger. ( Patriotism, clubs, churches, community are all surrogates of this expression)

Science and the vast spread of information has set us free to envision a new narrative of meaning, a world that embraces, nourishes and celebrates the divine pagan and how that vitalizes the whole of consciousness and together the uni-verse either expands or contracts. (Gaiad Theory from Journey to the Center of Being in utero )

We are in an interactive whole that is more than a sum of the parts and yet all parts matter. The potential is ours to explore.  We are here to help each other nourish the whole of us for this will optimize our potential, creative curiosities and help us move past our self limiting beliefs.

We are mature enough as a species to understand and appreciate the cycles of nature as gifts, of abundance, diversity and change . Nature is transformative by design.

The storms, volcanoes  and  "chaos" of nature ensure the vitality and renewal of the planet.

Our passionate outbursts, the ability to choose unhealthily are expressions of free will.
 Relativity is to range, as juxtapose is to spark.

Our emotions, rational thoughts and core knowing,  our subconscious minds and our inherited beliefs are all being brought into new understanding. (B. Lipton, D Goleman, others) This might feel chaotic but is, i suspect, just a shaking free, a rebirth, a renewal.

In the whole of energy, in the co creative next, (Barbara Marx Hubbard) the divine masculine and the divine feminine are being embraced. Though the language varies by discourse one can see the emergence in many fields, via many voices.

As shadow needs light and dark, free choice needs "good" and "evil" the whole of our being and doing comes from story via the iconic masculine and feminine (the gamut is a range expressed differently throughout genders. This is natural biodiversity at work) We inherit from the past but  now it is "ours" to reinvent  

As this planet is a gift of the sensual expression of life, I say instead of ascension  and spirit envy why not intentionally enjoy the present human living experience in a healthier, livelier planet embracing, love connecting, sharing realization of the whole.

Why not max out inclusive potential!

You see, i have an idea that without our participation in this realm,  consciousness might lie semi dormant. Joy, love, pain, anger, our curiosity, diversity, ego, creativity, humor, all the capacity, the potential of being, doing is available to each of us here and now. 

Consciousness expands via our actualizations and vice versa.  Ok, i made that up too (Gaiad Theory 2) but i am drugged by the beauty of natural systems, see inert potential everywhere and am not one to make a mess and walk away.

In time we will die and transform as all carbon matter, but for now let us celebrate the Dance of Life.
