These are words to remind the reader of the timeless state of living-in-the-now, with surrender to intense experience, of pain or pleasure (dukha or sukha). Thoughts of "I don't want" or "I want" dampened before they catch the thinking mind in corrals of reflection on the desire that is present.
Meg Wheatley and others describe the inevitable collapse of power-based civilizations, which end with those in power only looking out for their own interests, fame held by entertainers and sports stars. With an un-redeemable system, energy is better spent hospicing it than resuscitating it. My sense is that whatever new arises must be based on an expanded sense of self, of deep connection with other humans and with the natural world. From that way of living, we will see less strife and divisiveness, extraction replaced by restoration. Ilarion Merculieff's messages ring true for me, that individually we need to move from the head to the heart as the prime factor in decisions, with the head in support. On a societal level, we would do well to move to feminine leadership, with men supporting them. A common Unangan greeting translates as "hello, my other self." What I can do as an individual is to "live into" that future world that resonates for me.
I tried adding a reflection with some links included. It was flagged as spam. Frustrating, as I think the links quite relevant. Ah well. Here's another try. Nic Askew uses similar language when he talks about how he sits with people to produce his "Soul Biographies" films. Nic's language is similar to that used by Hareesh Wallis to talk about Pratibhā. I've gathered some of his words in the post "Pratibha" on my systalk.org site. It is related to the "still small voice" that gets drowned out by the ego's shouting and pushing. It's quite unsettling to the ego that it might not be necessary after all.
Dealing with full-time care (starting about 4 weeks ago) of our 52 year old son with ALS has shown me that the only way to maintain equanimity with all the ups and downs is to take things as they are - never as good as hoped for nor as bad as fear or despair might imagine. My "contribution" is staying engaged and balanced in order to handle whatever might arise.
