Big Mind –Journey of Beauty 02.10.13

Guiding Thought

Do you know how beautiful you are? Do you have any idea what Beauty created you, what Beauty adorns you, what Beauty permeates and surrounds you? Do you know all Beauty is a gift of Love, leading you to Itself?

Reflection / Contemplation

There is a great deal of writing out there about Creation from ancient religious texts, philosophers, theologians, cosmologists, etc., in an attempt to answer the question, “Who created us and the Universe and why?” In addition there are writings that state that there are multiple universes, multiple timelines and dimensions. This is big, what I consider Big Mind.

One concept that I a rather like states that all of creation, us humans included, is merely the God/the Divine having an experience of looking back on itself. This is one big mirror, and certainly bigger than the one I use in my bathroom, or the Love I wrote about last round with these same guiding thoughts.

What else is catching my attention is the interplay between Phi (1.618), the Golden Ratio/the Golden Mean/The Divine Proportion, the Fibonacci Sequence, the mathematical formula that somehow shows up in the formation of spiral galaxies, plants (look up pictures of pine cones and the center of sunflowers), animals, art and architecture, and our very DNA…and let me not forget, sound frequencies.

Here in this Universe, or at least of what we know and can surmise, amidst the diversity, the complexity, the billions of years, string theory and universe stacking, etc., there is some amazing design thread which connects me and my DNA to the formation of a spiral galaxy billions of years old. And how many of these galaxies are there and how many have existed?

This is one Big, Beautiful, Amazing mirror meditation indeed!

Now it is time for me to go play with my Phi Ratio tuning forks.
And yes, I have them.

Oh, my beautiful blissful heart!

How can I deepen and expand my relationship with you?

How can I give your love, your wisdom, your compassion more openly and freely?

How can I know you, my heart of love, as myself?

Sometimes things just don’t feel right. Sometimes we call it “waking up on the wrong side of bed” sometimes we describe it as just feeling “off”, sometimes it’s a wordless malaise that seems to seep into life through invisible cracks.

This happened to me this morning. It started with my usual morning bath. Normally, I spend 90 minutes soaking, even sleeping, with no problem. This morning, after 30 minutes I wanted to jump out of the tub. Fortunately, I am experienced enough in tub-soaking, that I know the impulse to jump out is precisely a reason to stay in. Soaking in the tub processes and heals emotions. When there is an impulse to leave, most of the time the water is processing feelings of urgency, emergency, impatience, dissatisfaction, etc. If I jump out too soon, the process does not come full circle, and the emotions are left hanging there…and when that happens more often than not they come up for resolution at less convenient times. So I stayed and soaked, wallowing in my discomfort. My solar plexus was uncomfortable. The deep little muscles in my biceps were uncomfortable. My fingers and feet wanted to shake and dance. My sternum was uncomfortable, for crying in the mud! It wasn’t as bad as, maybe, ants crawling over me, but it was close. This morning, I came up with the theory that people with “restless leg syndrome” are suffering from too much emotional urgency that they have suppressed for too long, and now the energy just needs to get out.

During this time, I thought about the book by Simone Weil, Waiting on God. What a great title to think about when feeling impatient. Wait on God. It’s so hard to wait on God when I just want to jump up and get out of this discomfort. Wait on God. Ugh. God’s not quick enough, I need to move, and forget this ever happened. Wait on God. My body is not happy about waiting on God.

Healing happens when we wait on God. Miracles happen when we wait on God. Enlightenment happens when we wait on God. Soaking in the tub is just the warm-up.

I stayed in the tub for 60 minutes—my personal minimum when I am in such a mood. I don’t think it was enough. I still felt off.

I decided on the bright spot: I was having growing pains! Expansion discomfort! Increase-of-awareness awareness! There is moving and shaking (literally!) going on, and I just need to be able to go with it and grow with it!

The Fibonacci sequence 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144 (the title of today’s picture), is what is represented by the spiraling hearts; of course, the more well-known representation is the nautilus. It represents growth, more specifically, it represents geometric growth in near-exact proportion. This is my attempt at harnessing my decision about the bright spot in my growth-pains, and making something perfectly beautiful out of it. Growth is beautiful. Growth may cause some fireworks, but hey, they are beautiful too.
