Conscious Evolution - Santa Barbara Go to your Light Center
"Jewish mystics praised the Self as the radiant indwelling Shekinah, and Islamic Sufis adored it as 'the Beloved', while the fourteenth-century German monk Meister Eckhart preached of it as 'the desert beyond God.' Six hundred years later, the scholar and mystic Thomas Merton described the Self as 'the infinite I Am which is the very name of the Almighty.' Examples such as these are legion, found in all the world's faiths." Translators

Beloved Community,

I’ve never really shared about my experience ALONE with Nature for three and a half months in a 100 acre Redwood forest the summer of 2014. I’ve been aware of myself, not so much as a human being, but as an autopoietic living system ever since...with mycelium as my mentor.

Today I went to Stephens park and just nestled in the arm of a big old tree and allowed myself to cry and be overwhelmed with the love I feel for the natural world that sustains us all. To me, nature is the visible form of the invisible processes of god/universe/divine/transcendent mystery, spirit, etc.

A few days ago I consciously began to “jar” myself out of my "paradise stupor.” I wonder if the paradise of Santa Barbara, and being embedded within an "amazing field of conscious evolutionaries," has allowed me to be delightfully happy and congratulatory concerning who and how and where I am.....while, our life support systems are being destroyed...on my watch.

Can we "break ground" together on this CEN platform, for an "Essential Listening Field"? If we build it, others will come.

Loving you all
