Mothers Day Trees and Robot Bees

Be aware, be awake and start talking. Your real time, 3 d efforts are required!
The above photo is of my fave Mother Tree..i noticed her and her male consort several years ago..I visit them to add natural ritual to my life.  (try it -for fun)
On this Mother's Day, i honor the vital energy of natural forces beyond our real control. Despite planned parenthood, ultrasound, caesarians and all that we have learned life to another human being has an energy of its own.

I remember at a certain point in my pregnancy where i experienced an allowance, a letting go of "control" a time of faith where i handed off some of the "action" to Gaiad (God and Nature together again(?) By accepting the pregnancy i accepted a host of changes.

Watching my womb expand, stretching the skin across my abdomen , feeling the kicks and ripples. being.halfway thrilled, halfway appalled -this went way beyond the baby maker's manuals of the day.

This experience left me with a visceral sense of life. I believe women and chaos have an understanding that no man will understand in quite the same way. For in the chaos of body that allows for new life there is another reality, a meaning that is intricate and sublime and way beyond reason and rational thinking.

Yes, continence of the species is in the background tapes but beyond that is a co-creative vibrancy that resonates throughout the uni-verse. In this aspect all human creativity becomes manifest, a part of the renewing process..

It is in this sweet acceptance of "chaos" where the creative, imaginal cells thrive and is where we too, come alive.  Therefore, it is in all of our best interests to pay attention, to waken from the prior collective delusional  dream of domination and embrace the potential of the "open"  It is time to have faith in the process, in our own hearts and our own minds; as we reach toward love, this time without all the trappings that make it "safe" and "not" love. That plan has backfired...big time!

Learning to pay attention to the intricate web of the life that surrounds and supports us..that which truly enables our existence...this is the new adventure.This is where we will find new hope and experience he actualization of our new stories.

Our primal fears of the forest in those days of yore have met up with todays better understandings however we are now dealing with a huge gap we need to leap. In our search for survival, independence and "security" we thought we could do it with a conquer, dominate and control strategy. We pitted our abilities against the forces of Nature. Now we are starting to realize how wrong minded that vision and those actions were and are.s. Now we can choose  wiser course, a course that aligns with the Natural world.

We can choose to learn from Mother Tress,  nature's water systems, our psychology of fear and scarcity, our innate curiosity and imagination,  our connection to the whole of life and what that really means now..we can choose to accept the responsibility of consciousness and action. We are ready.

It is time to reconsider, re-value and re-imagine our existence to allow us to become more fully into our human beingness This is not the time to shrink into mechanistic patterns that project the past onto the future nor is it time for spiritual ascension , the isolated updrawl into communing with spirit stuff. Please ...that is throwing out the baby and the bathwater..that time is passe... I believe God/Gaia believes we can do more-and  is rooting for us..we are LOVED

!The trigger for today's post was from a blog response on dandelions that pointed me to a video on robotics.

Robot bees will not really "replace"  living insects just as faux chemical vitamins are not as the natural delivery systems nature has designed and as such may be of little or no use...we are past the dawn of the scientific breakthrough shazaam! ...the looky what i did!! childhood of our curiosities.

We are maturing into fully enabled human beings, ready to accept the responsibility and grace of a maturing species, a species that sees where it fits into the larger puzzle of the whole of life, ..and this is what will generate the new stories; stories that will heal us and allow us to enter the fiery heart of LOVE to heal and live as new.

Heart and Circulation

  Park Pop Up installation, 5 2 2014

Recent Earth Day documentaries on Pivot  (their April month of  specials, really deserves a mention) had me thinking again how our bodies are patterns of organic constructs found in other works of Nature, similar patterns throughout systems with change, adaptive qualities..this is rich.

I loved doing the water systems recycouture exhibit of 2012. This is where a woman  spoke to me of our being in co-evolution with plants, animals et al and how this coevolving sustained us. Plants use energy we cannot and as humans when we consume plants we are actually releasing the vital nutrients that were made available during the photosynthesizing process. How cool is this?

But in our anthropomorphic delusions, we altered systems to support our species. This is a huge Plus & Minus topic as we crashed around all ignorant and arrogant and yet managed to survive -so now we can observe what our ignorance and arrogance has created- the irony is sweet. The solutions are available, the beliefs correctable and the new stories are being written.

The satin heart construct with painting of wooded stream that meanders from an open horizon to let in the light, the energy of consciousness. The painting becomes 3 d as it escapes with a tulle river to become an expression of confluence, flow and bio mimicry.. a metaphor of how we connect to the whole of being, in multi mediums.

 I appreciate how beautifully our veins and arteries circulate blood and how this vital fluid transports nutrients through our bodies, much as rivers and streams have been transporting nutrients throughout our planet's ecosystems.  This creates the necessary regenerative flow that enhances life and supports evolution which supports our material beingness which enables consciousness..that is beyond amazing! For without consciousness what really "exists?"

This metaphor goes further as humans and other species store toxic wastes as well, often in fat.  New blood flow systems are generated to support these sites that contain the things bodies cannot flush or utilize.

Land fills, toxic waste and soil seepage ......environment out "there" and in "here."

Rivers transport goods and generate services created by humans and yet we block, control reroute them as we believe we need to do so in order to boost our energy; all the while depleting another kind of energy elsewhere.

The Mad Hatter Tea Party with delusions of the infinite table, where guests and hosts just moved down when a mess was made. I think Lewis Carrol was writing of more than than an event in a children's book. We as a species see the end of the table and we know not what to do except continue an ancient pattern that regenerates more problems. This is the mainstream level of flow and why the alternative paths are so very important, to stray is to solve that which cannot be solved with the thinking that created it (Einsteins best) .

So in this mess we are facing ...a simple oops and let us sincerely do better would help us all to heal. However most humans  are apparently transfixed by their own toxic brains, held in the black magic spells of that old story.

"One pill makes you larger and one pill makes you small and the pills your mother gives you..." (Jefferson Airplane) actually may show up as damage later! 

We are all here to participate in the now story. Every day we make choices that contribute to the Love or the Fear in that story.

Those willing to face the fear, see the shadow and the damage need to explore the new path, write the new stories. For if we do not face fear- we run or fight, both acts just get us ever deeper into the shadow.

New stories can turn the whole planet direction around.

Artists activate your tools and utilize them well, for it is in the creative mind that our resources can expand. (The Quantum Activist- A Goswami can further this concept, that book brought it home to me!)
