Each cycle of work has created within, a more whole, more complete seeing and understanding of truth… intentional truths. Not only a more wholistic seeing and understanding; but systemic images – work and role – within that. The philosophy that is called for given the current reality – culture, the diminishing of humanness, diminishing vitality of the life systems and processes of earth – and the necessity to return to the path of original intent; continues to develop. There clearly is a growing sense of urgency – a need for thoughtful, deliberate movement towards -; and a hunger, a yearning – particularly within the youth – for resolving issues in intentional ways… for love entering the process. And too we have Greta Thunberg leading the cry… the children are crying, “The culture has no clothes!” Now, no doubt, a miracle or two would be a welcome intervention… however, free will conscious conscientious choice, the exercising of that, does not seem to lend itself to such. However, there is no doubt as to the necessity for work to be present, and no doubt as to what to work on.
I am remembering the image that emerged in the work many years ago. An image of a people living within a cave in the side of the cliff… a cliff overlooking the ocean. The water rising, entering into the cave, folks first reaction being that of moving to the higher ground within the cave; and finally realizing that a boat is what was needed… that is what we should work on. What is growing in understanding and conviction is the necessity for a come from above process… establishing there is a come-from-above – a Source, an intentionality, behind the whole of all – accessible, practice-able process. An above that we are not separated from, limited to petitions; but rather that which we are intended to join with… to join in the work of… the Spirit led, spirit manifesting work. Perhaps a bit of what we are experiencing is a test of faith – faith in intent. The aim of testing is to develop a deeper, stronger conviction and willfulness.
