A Phrase to Contemplate..

Posted by vintagescribe on April 1, 2009

When I sat down to make a journal entry this morning, this phrase popped into my mind, so I wrote it down…”Evolve In Place!”

Along with the phrase, came a visual of a tall pyramid, which immediately began to fade away, to be replaced by a mind-picture of a deep still pond, as it would appear if one had just tossed a pebble into the middle of it, with the ripples radiating outward.

I’ve learned to just allow phrases and visuals to  simply sit quietly  in my mind, and not leap upon them with this inquisitive  rational mind that demands to know  “the meaning” of it all, immediately!

Patience…patience…:)

Now comes more of a sensing, than a clear thought..that I am receiving something I really need to “grok” on a pretty deep level…that isn’t easy to put into words.

I am sensing however, that it has something to do with changing structures here: that it is of no use to view anything as a pyramid, or hierarchal structure anymore.  That it’s time to stop “striving ahead, or upward”, toward any previously understood outcome or form.

Because it won’t be there. It’s somewhere else. In the pond? Under the ripples?

In any case, it’s an attractive option to one whose body is aging and periodically retiring it’s various parts and pieces!  I can handle this sitting quietly by a still deep pond, tossing in a pebble now and then, and following it in my mind,  as it slowly sinks downward, to a new home place.

What did this phrase whisper to you, I wonder?

    Grok? I love grok! Strangers in a Strange Land, eh?

    Personally, I think of myself as a Visitor here… albeit a strange visitor I’m sure 🙂

    “Evolve in Place” ~ It whispers… all places are the same place, the place within. External, physical places are created and destroyed, even the body. But evolution suggests continuity, so it is the inner energy or soul that evolves. Hm… but does the soul really evolve or is it complete as it is? if So, then what is it that evolves? Good question…
    Your thoughts?

    Best wishes, Whisel*

    Conscious awareness OF the soul,perhaps? Of all souls? Of how all is one? Some kind of expansion that will in time become dissolution, and full absorbtion into “oneness with all that is?”

    (Heck, I don’t know! I’m just sitting here blowing smoke!)

    Changing structures in every way, as I see/feel/understand it. Probably stop “striving” for anything. . .it appears to me more as an allowing all that is to be all that is in whatever form or manner that might be and opening up to all possibilities and all potentials. Letting go of everything we think we know and move into the NOW that unveils itself moment to moment to us.

    Just how it all feels to me, which seems very much in line with what you offered in your word descriptors.

    Blessings, loves and hugs,
    Shirl
