The Universe Within

 

Psychiatrist, Stanislov Grof, writes that there is such thing as cellular memory.  Not only that but he says that all the universe is encoded in some way in the sperm and ovum.  We walk around each day in our little lives unaware of the universe within.

The Night Light Show

131

Tiny, twinkling stars

suffering loneliness,

fall from the sky

and become fireflies,

flickering on and off

among the trees

calling for a mate,

lighting the night sky

and exciting vision

with twinkling

and flashing lights

and one is not sure

which is which

so bewitched are we

by the show of Light.


The Light Beings

P1110518_edited-2

In the freshness of the forest

I like to think

there are beings of light

especially after a rain

dancing in the green scented air

some call them aberrations

of the digital age

but I think them not unlike

the perception

of fleeting flecks of light

seen against an empty sky

I marvelled at as a child

and was flatly told they were floaters on the eye

 floaters they are not

rather they speak to me still

decades later

in hushed whispers

of the mystifying mystery

of the air we breathe

and the light we see

everyday without thinking.

 


Layers of Light

StockdaleWolfe_05_Hommage to Rothko

Layers of light refers to the layers of light in nature, specifically in the natural landscape and that is what I have tried to capture in the above photograph.  It is also what I try to capture over and over again in my paintings as in the one below.2126624741-4_edited-2

But there are layers to our personalities, too.  And, of late, I have been very disturbed by the many negative aspects of my own personality appearing before my eyes.  Being disturbed by the negatives is a form of egoism but it can propel one towards change.  It was a post by Bert at http://whoisbert.wordpress.com/2012/12/13/meditation-as-a-screen-saver/ that really helped me understand what I think is going on.  Now I am not sure if I am correctly interpreting what he wrote but perhaps it was what I needed to hear and therefore, read into it.  I have been meditating on and off for a long time and have been critical at the quality and quantity of my meditations.  Bert seemed to be saying that meditation is a sort of purification process whereby we can examine our faults and do something to rectify them.  So this was hopeful to me.  First of all, it meant that perhaps my meditations were “working” after all, and, secondly, it meant that perhaps all the negative aspects of my personality I was seeing meant not that I am some sort of arch fiend, but, rather that I am undergoing a purification process, calling for me to change the many negatives I see.  Meditation brings out the layers of our personalities that lie lurking in the dark so they can be exposed, thereby altering them in the process, as they are exposed to the Light.
