Imagine the entire Universe as a giant fractal. Each component within the fractal is a pattern that constantly flows and becomes more than it is as it continues to touch the original pattern while eternally morphing into something different and new.
It is important to recapitulate the historical patterns that have been handed down to us from generation to generation. Many people allow these patterns and associated thought forms to serve as the foundation of their reality without ever attempting to question or become aware of their own true nature free of these patterns.
In order for us to hold a pattern in our minds, we must push away the rest of the fractal. When we do, we are no longer fluid; we become fixated. If you define someone with a word, you negate them. By giving someone a label, you eliminate all of the other things that they could be. At the same time, you are creating them to fulfill that definition because you have defined it to exist. You have defined them as a single pattern within the fractal.
We have to go beyond the mold. The mold is merely a stage, a stopover that brings temporary peace and serenity to those who journey into the unknown, but it is sterile, static. It is at the same time a flat reflected image in a mirror and the mirror itself. And the image is man’s image.
We are each taught to live our lives based upon the myths that have been passed down through centuries. There are thousands upon thousands of myths and their primary function is to provide us with a model that helps us to activate our unconscious. When this occurs, we can then integrate the unconscious into our consciousness. When we connect with our unconscious, we move beyond the patterns that we have upheld throughout our lives and our unconscious allows us to realize the unlimited potential that lies within each of us.
There is much complaining about the state of our country, our world, the earth, ourselves. We fight and fight to attempt to bring about change. But we are human beings, not human doings. Gandhi said BE the change you want to see in the world - not DO the change you want to see in the world.
Buckminster Fuller said: “You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.”
Our true crisis in this world is the inability to experience consciousness.
We must let go of the patterns within the fractal, and free the fractal of which we are each a part, so we may continue to flow, change, and create ourselves into becoming the most of what we are capable of truly being. We must rise to the task of being the true creator beings that we are each meant to be.
