    Tricky….finding just the right balance of consciously creating and manifesting in this world of creation and creative expression and letting it all be at the same time……more duality?

      OH S! Why you gotta take pot shots from the back row, bursting holes in my version of the truth today? 🙂 I do think I have a tendency to lean toward “going with the flow” – and thus I am seeking balance into conscious creation. Where’s that power animal hiding out? haha.

        I do think at the end I become more clear on this when he talks about the organic nature of this letting go, that we don’t have to do anything essentially because life itself forces us to let go, and then from this state of recognition of this process or inevitability, we are not grasping, and then all power flows naturally through us. I can’t say it as well as A.W. but this teaching sort of sews up the duality into a oneness which accepts and flow and manifests too. Penguins are appetizers 🙂

    I loved the line ‘the Godhead can never be an object of its own knowledge.’ (Or something like that). I so often feel I ‘m on the verge of getting there or figuring something out, and how wonderful it feels to discover that this sensation of falling- it doesn’t really end with hitting the ground like we expect. It is really the sensation of flying while cringing in the expectation of impact. But there is no ground to hit. We are not falling. We are flying. And we will go on doing so… forever. The mysterious nature of what is, is so. This is who we are. When we take the future proverbial hypothetical ground crash destructive moment out of the picture, the entire sensation changes, even though nothing in the present has changed at all. We realize we’re always going to be on the verge in some sense… and we can enjoy it! Michael

      So so good! I love Alan Watts! This video is so potent, and such a sync for what I have been reading and audibooking. 🙂 Such a cool manifestation for me: when I posted my private shadow work for the virtual world to see, so much assistance has flooded my way to really dispel the shadow by embracing it. And by embracing it, I mean literally like hugging it, telling it “Yes, I’m listening. I am so sorry to have ignored you all these years, to have never provided the love that you have been desperately seeking. But I am here now, tell me how you feel.” And when that is heard, the desire to control and ‘self defend’ as Watts says, falls away. Immedieate strength and vulnerability, in equal measure. The opposites collide. Great vid for my sunday morning momma!

        My heart is warmed to hear of the support since your brave sharing of your private shadow work! The compassion for yourself is so right on and similar to my own experiences. No need to defend anymore and such love and nurturing for the original small kernel of pain found within the looming large darkness – Last year at this time I was working through some releasing of my idea of being a good mother in an intense bout of teenage rage that tipped me into shadow. I love the paradox of caring for the self by saying stop caring for yourself, embrace and love and then:
        “Leave your existence to existence, stop caring for yourself
        so much and let the universe care for you;
        it is the best mother.
        There has to be some trust, not just belief,
        because trust is intimate…
        something lets go to this invitation to stop holding yourself
        and let’s go to existence instead.
        The very letting go will be observed in your presence.”

      It does feel so on the tipping point, just around the bend, the light at the end of the tunnel is within sight! I love your take and flow into falling and flight imagery. I keep going from falling to flying, falling and flying, over and over again – at times like wile e coyote mugging to the camera when he realizes he is standing on air and drops like a anvil. I feel on the verge of life getting really damned interesting; loops, dives, spirals in the air will be such fun as I gain skill with intention. I so appreciate your great poetic, engaging, and fresh insights, Michael!
