How can you be aware of yourself as Beauty? Not just as beautiful, but as Beauty Itself? How can you exist as Beauty–how can you be Beauty? How may you Know your Self as the Beauty you Are?
Reflection / Contemplation
My writing today invites me into contemplation and is a variation on a theme.
At some point we have all heard the phrase that we only use 10% of our brains. I am not sure if this is true or not. There is a numbers game going on, for sure, as to what our capabilities are. The neuroscientists are hard at work on this very project.
Another way to look at this is through the work of the theoretical physicist, David Bohm with the terms implicate and explicate order – ontological concepts related to quantum theory. Here we go again with philosophy and metaphysics.
I first heard this term and of David Bohm through the work of the sound healer, Tom Kenyon. As best was described to me about these terms was that what we perceive through our senses (explicate order) is actually less than 1% (I hope my numbers are correct) of what is actually there (implicate order – subatomic particles and such – subtle fields and other dimensions of reality). It’s a big world inside and out. Wow, the opportunity is ripe for new information to come in.
Clearly, the practice of softening through meditation presents itself as a way to access vastness beyond our day to day physical sensations. So say the mystics, as well as the scientists.
Knowing my own Beauty, knowing what Beauty created me, and knowing how Beautiful I am, I am discovering resides within this subtle and multidimensional space of implicate order. This was my entry point today, during a breathing meditation (the one that I mentioned a few days ago). Finally, a deep, deep breath! And, of course, words fail to describe my experience, much like trying to describe what “essence” is.
At best, all I can do is play in this vastness. And the more I keep at this play of staying soft, I may be better able to describe this knowing, my Beauty.
