The Generosity Economy

I have no specific experience or training as an economist. I’ve rarely even felt that I was in any kind of financial flow. But I have noticed, throughout my seventy-plus years, that when I’m feeling generous and behaving out of generosity, then some sort of flow does begin and does continue. If I start wondering about my bank account, then the flow stops and I have to pay attention to the bank account.

So I have done some experimenting, and it has always felt good to do it, and our feelings are the most powerful tool that we have for co-creating our Universe. I have given, when I can, more than the asked price for something that I’m buying or paying for. It shocks people, because no one is set up for that to happen, not mentally, and certainly not in their bookkeeping systems. We’re generally trained into following the ideas of a system that says that everyone is trying to get as much as they can and give as little as possible, most of the time, in most every kind of transaction. But I give a little more when it works, especially for handcrafted things or artwork, and sometimes even for services like car repair. And the more I think about it and the more I actually do it, the more convinced I am that if everyone — and that means everyone — were to give a little bit more than the stated price whenever they buy something or pay for some service, gradually, everyone, and I mean everyone, would have a surplus and even abundance.

I have no doubt that it would work. The whole universe is full of an abundance of energy just waiting to get used. Quantum physics and Nikola Tesla and others agree on that. The energy wants to be used, and spread around, and enjoyed, as in Generosity, for everyone, not restricted and guarded, as in survival and power for individuals. Money is one of the forms of that energy.

And guess what… as the Universe so often does, it likes to present an affirmation when we’re catching on to how its heart works — a few hours after I wrote this little piece, I was selling some of my drums and decided to give a couple more pieces of the drum set to the buyer, pieces that were not part of the original transaction, and then he gave me more money than was agreed upon in the original transaction. Surplus and abundance for each party, and genuine smiles and a sincere handshake.

It sure feels like an excellent way to conduct transactions between human beings. And our feelings are our most powerful tools for co-creating our Universe.

You Know That You Know

See that glow there, it’s called The Sun
Colors there, called a rainbow.’
Oceans of emotion, that’s called everyone.
The forest gives a clue, to the enormity of you,
And You Know, That You Know, That You Know.

That thrill in your heart now, the feather weighs more.
You can’t wound or be wounded, you see everyone’s role.
The nations take notice, borders disappear.
It’s a planet that loves so that all can love to be here.
And You Know, That You Know, That You Know.

You see the same numbers, day after day.
That bird that flew by looked you straight in the eye
and you know, that the seasons are you.
You feel that you can do now, what you’ve never done
And You Know, That You Know, That You Know.

The waiting is over, there are no more doors.
You’re part of it all again, but like never before.
Your heart has new stories, and they’re like never before,
with no chapters or words.
And You Know, That You Know, That You Know

You Know, That You Know, That You Know, That You Know, That You Know

As Unconditional Love.

Your Heart, Before Your Language.

How to know? How to come to know, if you’ve just begun hearing the concept of “being in your heart”, what that feels like? Heart-focused, heart-based, heart-centered … intuition,,, what IS all of that? How does that feel? How do we know when we’re there?

A good place to start is to consciously stop using language in your mind. Not easy to do, but give it a try. Begin noticing how, when you use your five senses — when you see something, or hear something, or smell, or taste, or touch something –, the five senses that bring the majority of information that we process most of the time into our minds, into our consciousness, notice how the next step in the process is usually to use your language, in your mind, to say something to yourself, which is again, your mind. That’s the process here, so far — your mind saying something to your mind about the information that has just come in. Then you’ll probably have a feeling about what your mind has just said to itself, and then you’ll form another statement to your mind about that feeling and that creates another thought and another feeling about that thought….

So try to eliminate that first step of needing to form some statement using your language about information that comes in. Just go straight to feeling what you feel about the information. That feeling takes place in your heart. And don’t worry, the heart has it’s own brain that sends information to every other part of the body including the brain, and also receives information from all those other body parts and systems. So nothing ever “gets lost”. Try to just let the information come in and feel what you feel about it without having to make a statement to yourself about it with your language. Try to keep words out of it, and just feel the feeling of the information. Try to even feel, without forming any worded instructions to yourself, what your response will be to the feelings that you’re having about the information that has just come in. Once you begin to be able to experience your experiences through the feelings that you have during them, rather than through the statements that you’re able to make to yourself about them, then you’re beginning to know a heart-based existence. It’s close to what animals are doing all of the time.

Human language is not to be denied or disrespected. It is a wonderful, magical, powerful, tool for operating in the practical 3-D world, and for inspiring unlimited sojourns into unlimited other worlds. And if you look and feel closely, you’ll notice that every thought that becomes expressed with language has begun with a feeling that has come from the heart.

The Elephant and the Priestess.

The Elephant and the Priestess

Twelve times they had tried it. Unbelievable. Certain in the beginning, before the first attempt. Less certain now. But nevertheless, certain. All the elements were aligned. Each step had been followed, each instruction. Done as had been done, as nearly as could be imagined from the answers that had come. Sometime, they knew, this had been the passageway, and it had been used often. In that sometime, whenever it had been. They were certain of it.

Clues that were so much more than clues, because they caused so much vibration in the body as they were read and fathomed. The bones became sound chambers when the clues were read. Sounding rods. Sound amplifiers. Sound chambers. Echoes and throbs of sound. They knew in their bones, in the hollows that their bones formed in their chests and in the cradles of their pelvis bones, they knew, were certain, that they had found the passage, its entrance, its exit. Its portal. Its infinite cosmic multi-dimensional portal.

They would try for the thirteenth time. Face the opening between the stones that had held these places for uncounted rotations of the galaxy. Resting in the hillside, clothed with glowing greened greyed blankets of mosses and lichens, red brown dry leaves, small white and yellow blossomed plants with red black butterflies. The large round one on the left, supported by foundation on several smaller sibling stones barely visible through the mosses and ferns. The large round stone that formed a feeling of the stomach and torso, with the smaller rounded stone a little askew on the top of it, the elongated and funneled stone lodged on the left side of it, the feeling as if being next to a seated forest-floor elephant. And on the right side of the gap between the portal stones, the gap that allowed a view of the slight suggestion of four, perhaps five vertical stones that could slide in the hillside, on the right side of that view stood the right portal stone, more surface exposed where the mosses could not cling to the vertical angle, standing like a tall-robed priestess, half-a-tree tall, her hair of ferns falling from the top onto both shoulders. Suggestions of uneven breasts under the robe below the shoulders. Standing immovable, as if a body trunk rooted by its legs deep into the Earth.

For the thirteenth time they would gather inside of themselves,,, each as though a part of the other, in their group of three they called The Triad. Gather inside of themselves as though they were one singular holder and generator, one transducer, one dynamo, one dynamic heart. Gather and create a vibration among them that was their dynamic golden heart intention to pass through this portal for the ultra-dimensional treasure that they were certain thrived there on the other side. To know their own treasures. To know the treasures that belong to all who experience life. Experience consciousness. Are expressions of consciousness. In form or in waves. All of it vibrations, frequencies, waves of the emotions that have been called divine, that have been called love, that have been called the many names of the creator love. A physical step through that portal and into the dimensions on its other side would allow expansions of the consciousness of that love as it has been expressing in individuated dynamics and flows. From those expansions would come the choosing of the flow that would follow,,, that would express further. These three in their triad knew that they had prepared and they had found their way to this place, to the elephant and the priestess.

Why Quantum Entanglement?

Because every particle in the Universe is in love with every other particle in the Universe.

What is Quantum Entanglement? Why should anyone care what it is?

Well, there are processes in physics that have been understood during the past hundred years or so that show us that everything is connected. Everything is energy that has been focused into some form. Energy flows everywhere in waves until it gets focused into some form, like a particle, or bunches of particles. All of the particles, whatever they become or wherever they go, are still energy, so even if they have taken on some form that makes them seem to be separate from other particles, they are still energy, so they are still part of that one source — energy. Source.

So there’s a pretty good reason to “care about” what quantum entanglement is. (It’s called “quantum” because scientists wanted to have ways of measuring the energies and they found that there’s a certain quantity of energy that they can use as a way of measuring all energies, like using a millimeter as the base quantity for measuring all sorts of distances). The good reason is that if everything in our physical world is entangled, and is still part of its source, no matter what else it might look like or behave like, then it’s all connected at all times. And that’s what so many spiritual philosphies have been telling us for centuries — that it’s all One. That all people are connected. That we all came from the same Source. That even the plants and stones and animals and air and water all came from the same Source, so even all of that is connected, is entangled.

Quantum physics has also learned that the focus that can cause a particle to be formed in a wave of energy — there have been experiments that have shown particles to pop up in complete vacuums as soon as the experimenters or even a computer starts focusing on the vacuum to see if anything is in there — the focus itself is a super-powerful influence, creating something tangible or measurable, where there had been “nothing” before, nothing but energy, the energy field. So if everything is connected, we who have the ability to focus our eyes on something, or to close our eyes and to focus our thoughts, or even more powerfully, our feelings, on some thing or in some place or on some person or group of people or part of nature and the Earth, we can choose to focus and to affect whatever it is that we put our focus onto. And yes, powerfully, it is our feelings, the feelings that we are feeling while we’re focusing, that create the effect that we’re having.

We have heard that All Is Love. Quantum physics says that everything is energy. Spiritual philosophies say that everything is love. So, we should be understanding by now, after centuries of spiritual philosophies and a century of quantum physics, that everything is connected through love, the energy that is love. It looks as though there are a lot of separate particles, atoms, molecules, cells, organs, bodies, minerals, plants, birds, animals, lakes, oceans, stars, galaxies. But really, it’s all one big energetic field choosing different ways of focusing itself so that it can have experiences of interacting with different forms of itself. And IT LOVES ITSELF!!!!

Humans can add a lot of different kinds of feelings into the ways that the energy gets focused. Those feelings can always be found to have come from love, or to have come from fear. When humans love themselves as that One Big Source loves itself, then the feelings that direct the energies are based in love and even more love gets into the focus.

Every particle in the Universe is in Love with every other particle in the Universe.

Animal Heart: Living In Truth

Two days before the Spring Equinox, March, 2021, I was looking at a photo of a Snowy Owl in my WWF calendar. The owl was flying, about to land in its nest where young owls were waitiing. I could see directly into the owl’s eyes. I began to wonder then, how this bird, and any bird, and any animal, makes decisions and choices: choices about when to go get food for the young and how to agree with a partner on where and how to build a nest or dig a den; when to do whatever and how to do whatever and which direction to go when hunting. Animals and birds and fish make myriads of decisions and choices, and I wondered, Can it really be just pre-programmed instinct as we have all been told?

I have done a lot of reading and video watching of material produced by the HeartMath Institute. They among others have valid evidence that in humans, the heart has an energy field around it that is five thousand times as large as the field that is around the brain. The heart has forty thousand neurons in its makeup, neurons just like the brain has. And the heart actually does the majority of the communication with all organs and systems in the human body and passes the information on to the brain so that the brain can react. The heart also receives information from the brain and sends it to the organs and the systems.

So my sense and feeling became, as I looked into the owl’s eyes and wondered about animal responses to environment and choices about how to manage their moment-to-moment existences, was suddenly, that they are living primarily in the energy field that is around their hearts. They know that the function of the brain is as a control center for the body. The important information that they need is felt by the heart, and the decisions that use that information are made in the heart. There is very little confusion, if any, when an animal or bird or fish makes a decision, because the heart has felt the situation through its energy field and knows what to do next. It sends signals to the brain which then sends impulses to nerves and muscles and the animal moves or behaves accordingly. I suspect that even in response to information from the senses as in smells or sounds or sights, the sense organs’ sendings go first to the brain and then immediately to the heart for an appropriate response based on a comparison of the information with what is felt in the heart’s energy field. It could well be that the information from sense organs goes to the brain and the heart simultaneously. The brain is then told by the heart what to have the body do or not do.

Elsewhere in this blog, there is much writing about the heart. Follow your heart, Let your heart be your guide, The heart knows the way… the list of common old sayings about a greater wisdom residing in our hearts is notably a long one. I am convinced now, because I could, yes, feel it in my heart, feel what I saw in that owl’s eyes and in the eyes of other animals in my WWF calendar photographs, and from my childhood and youth spent living with the variety of animals on our family farm and in the forest and fields nearby, I am convinced that the heart’s energy field is where animals live their lives, do the majority of communication with possibly everything in their worlds.What they do in their lives is based on what they feel in their hearts. So many spiritual philosophies of the past and now spiritual channelings and guide books advise humans to do just exactly that. In those minutes of feeling what I saw in the animals’ eyes, I could feel how it is to live that way, and it is beautiful, and is the key to Living In One’s Own Truth.

Book of Eons

Book of Eons

I opened the Ancient Book of Eons
   and every page told of today,
   and every sentence told of this hour,
   and every word told of this moment,
   and so the Book closed and
       became dust in my hands.

I rose to step across a threshold that appeared
   and it, too, disappeared, and
I was in a space that was full —
   full of waiting,
   full of choices that were waiting to be chosen
To be chosen by many who would not wait.

For the Time is now, no matter how ancient the Time,
It is now, as it always will be.
The Time we call Now is a space full of choices:
I have made them and you have made them
And they fill our space and time as we make them
To make the you and to make the me
That are only and always the Love and the Light that
Eons of books have tried to describe.

…and every word has told of this moment.
This moment is ours to have.

Heart OLG

The Life that is within us is our own open, loving, Heart.

When we see that and feel gratitude for that, then we see that everything else and anything else is a magnificent theatre of opportunities for us to experience the wondrous things that our own open, loving, grateful, Heart can do. Can change. Can create.

And the most magical secret about all of that is that we ourselves are the author of what scenes are in our lives and what characters are in our lives and we have scripted what we experience and who we experience outside of ourselves, to help us find inside ourselves, that open and loving and grateful Heart that is who we really are. We are not our thoughts or our ego reactions or our emotions, though we must have those and feel those and know those; because when any of those is or are disturbed in any way, we learn then that finding peace through the disturbance is to find that Heart of ours just being there for us — open, and loving, and grateful.

The Energy Field Mirror

We often hear, when we are on a so-called spiritual path — the movement in our lives toward recovering the feeling/knowledge of our true selves, away from ego and survival, toward our hearts and our compassionate, empathic, joy — we often hear that all that we see and experience outside of ourselves is like a mirror of our inner selves, that all of it is a reflection of what is going on inside of us.

That concept can be very hard to grasp. Many events that we witness and many people whom we encounter seem to be very different from how we see ourselves and how we would like our world to be. We meet many people and experience or witness many events that are sometimes very disturbing to the personal equilibrium and morals and goals that we feel that we operate from and try to maintain and project. So how do those people and those events reflect what is inside of us? Just doesn’t seem to work.

When we begin to understand that each of us is really a collective of all of the people we have ever been in all of the lives that we have ever lived, and then grasp that truth that there really is no time so that we are all of our “lifetimes” in every moment, that we are really not only the focal point that is this body here and now but an energy field that includes every life and person that we have ever been, we can begin to imagine and then feel the truth that we ourselves are a collective of people or beings just as is the entire collective of people and beings that appear to be outside of us in this particular existence. Every person and every event that we witness or meet or experience is something that we have inside of us because we “have been” and are that person and have experienced that event in our own version of that, whatever it might be.

We see it in front of us now, experience it “now”, as a scene or character in a play that we have scripted ourselves to help us experience ourselves in every aspect that is possible for a human being to experience; just as Source has scripted each one of us so that Source can expand and expand and expand through experiences. This is the truth of the message that we are all Source Energy Beings.

Compassion for all that we see and meet is then a fairly easy state to achieve because it is really compassion for ourselves.
