clearing the future

I just finished reading a book called Evolutionaries by Carter Phipps. It's an interesting read and brings together all the different ways evolution has been happening since, well, the big bang. The evolution of the cosmos, of biological life, of consciousness and culture . . . It's had a subtle but definite effect on my psyche. One that I like! He talks about "breaking the spell of solidity" and seeing the world with "evolutionary eyes".

How it feels is: the future is wide open, unshaped. Here I am, a transitional being in a transitional world in a transitional universe that is constantly changing, evolving and moving forwards . . . and at this point in evolution I am aware that I am part of this forward movement and know that I have the power and choice to take part in determining what is becoming. And while the past is always here and coming with me, moment by moment, the future is where I am going. 

How does it look? How does it feel? 

I'm finding the project of clearing the future a great motivator to do my practice:

Even with all of my personal and ancestral history, and with all of our collective history, I can say YES to the whole thing and dance on into the wide open space of the unshaped FUTURE!

Am I a bit slow? did everyone already realize this?!

August Rhythms

I was inspired by the group of women dancing together at the moondance in Bristol last night. I saw yet again how simple it can be to wake up in the dance and to experience the self in a completely new way. More and more of these waves, these dances, and we don't have time for the old fixed ways of the mind.
I found myself saying again, that the dance is about consciousness. It is a way to liberate ourselves inside our own minds.

Evolution is in the air. It always has been, but I haven't ever been so aware of it as I am now. Having an awareness of the context of evolution is exciting.

Life has been evolving for billions of years.
Now is the culmination of that evolution.
Life will continue to evolve into the future, culmination upon culmination!
My life is just a teeny tiny blink. A breath, a sigh, and then I am gone!

And all the while there is movement, turning, evolving, refining, growing, becoming, shattering, growing more complex more distinct more full more empty more light more awareness more colours more dance more cooperation more richness more contrast more stillness . . . more consciousness

where are we going?
what are we choosing?
how are we being?

let's dance together to know the truth
shrug off the cloak of lies
awaken to our beauty
and seize our freedom.

It's happening now and we need to be here to experience it.
Embodying movement and change

I look forward to meeting you on the dance floor this month.
