seems to be a healing process
in which a sensation within Being
is found immersed as separate stuff
in a warm bath of an infinite sea..
If the separate stuff is painful
the comforting image seems 
as a healing balm..Why not?
With a continuing experience
we might find in our comfort
a subtle recognition of that
persistent claim of separation..
There must be a deeper comfort..
Might it be:
the feeling understanding that
Seawater and wavewater
are simply Water...

Fractals and Oneness...

Fractals and Oneness

Dear Frannie,

The first thing I would say is that fractals are simply another language to use in speaking of
something you already know:  Our identity (our real Self) as infinite Oneness (Consciousness,
Awareness, God, Love, Beauty, Happiness, Peace, and other synonymous names) in fractal
terms would be represented by the Fractal Formula or Source.  Then we have what is called
the Iteration, which might be understood as the creation, the Big Bang, evolution, or change.
The important thing is that all of the Iterations take place within the Oneness ( I think once
you mention the Fractal Formula, you could start using Oneness, because that is the message
you want to impart!) and more than that: the Iteration is made out of Oneness (There is nothing here but Oneness, God, and that is our real Self!) awareness of our real Self, we
iterate the apparent world.  However this world is not an should be understood
as simply a "coloration" or "modulation" of our Oneness, and the appearance is what we
see in our conventional way of seeing.    Oneness preserved!

So, you can probably equate this to what you already teach...the iteration can seem to be 
an independent separate-self (ego), which does not recognize the Oneness from which it
iterated, and experiences the intuition that something is missing, the longing, and the
search out in iteration-land for what is missing...not recognizing that we are already
made of the Oneness we are seeking...all this I know you already teach! 

Another thing...Fractals is one of the sciences of Oneness (quantum physics is another).
It is not a linear science, like Newtonian science.  So...since our real Self is that Oneness,
word explanations are deficient in teaching what fractals are.  It is experiential learning
(actually, discovering what we already know!) which results in understanding.  Thus, the
importance of simply watching an animated fractal (see link below, or just enter that in
Google). A person should observe the movement in a relaxed state, (keep the head out
of it, and the heart in!) , hopefully experiencing their Oneness, and taking note that all of 
the movement takes place within you (made of you!)... and there is no independent action
anywhere.  All Oneness!  All a dream? Is the universe one large iteration, iterating from
my Oneness?  When we wake up in the morning, does the Big Bang iteration happen
again?...or does the Big Bang iteration take place every time we blink our eyes?  :)

The above may be a deficient explanation, but it is what iterated out just now!  Actually,
it is deficient because there is too much of an assumption of time..time is just another 
iteration (thought) in Oneness..however, if you need more, I might be able to iterate some more...

With Happiness!  (See u April 8th..)


I have been inspired by God to use fractals when I speak of change, and the pattern of change.
But I am uncertain as to how I can explain this in plain terms to a newbie group on April 8th - all definitions are so complicated.
Do you see a relation between God’s pattern of change in our lives and fractals?
And if so, how would you relate that?

With peace and love,

See Spot Run

See Spot Run..
This icon of our education
yes..of youth..but continuing..
The question might be asked:
Was our education ever other
than variations of Spot running..?
Sophistication arrived but
the strong belief of separation:
Spot..and Dick..and Jane
remains.. seemingly implanted
unquestioned and permanently 
in what we call our world.. 
Through the years
some have found discomfort
a hole at the center of
Spot's adventures..
A vague unsettling
blossoming on some days
to sharp fragmentary pain..
In our many searchings
for restoration and  fulfillment 
might we in some momentary
clarity..see Spot not running
but dissolving into
the light of day...

Ken Wilbur's rule

Thought for the day....... “I have one major rule: Everybody is right. More specifically, everybody — including me — has some important pieces of truth, and all of those pieces need to be honored, cherished, and included in a more gracious, spacious, and compassionate embrace.” Ken Wilbur

pieces of truth
colorations of Truth..
Yes..honor these
as fragments but
much more important
recognize the equality:
everybody's true identity
as the Embrace
as Truth...

Ansel Adams...Thought for the Day Nancy

Thought for the day....... “Life is your art. An open, aware heart is your camera. A oneness with your world is your film.” Ansel Adams 

without birth and death
this Life is transparent and eternal:
a Camera of infinite possibilities..
the experiences of the senses
appearing on the film
are not separate from
the open and aware Camera...

Running Free

Running Free

Our paths would intersect
short conversations ensued
his youthful dreams and plans
entered my quiet panorama
as the field of our talks..
Then a quick good-bye 
he on his slower walk..
The far Peak and this Park
frames my memory of our meetings..
 Opportunity and transcendence
perform their dance until
each finds himself
Running Free...

a young friend, Jacob Busch..)

CC - I found this 3.5-minute video quite gratifying and meaningful.
Maybe some blog material??
Charlie P.

will work on response!  CC


is both sought and unsought
the unsought is the reality
the prevalence of grace
through all of our seeking..
But the seeking in our experience
is an expectation that our seeking
with diligent pursuit and care 
will yield a result and reward
of the very happiness sought..
Indeed snippets of transcendence
are found as  reward for diligence
but the snippet soon dissolves
returning we suppose to
its measureless Source...
Seeking soon continues 
searching once more with
reinforced expectation that the
snippet might be found once more..
How many searches we wonder
before an all-at-once discovery
that each of us is fully captured
immersed and made of
the unsought transcendence
we have been seeking...

Daylight Saving Time

Daylight Saving Time

They had their reasons
an energy savings perhaps
or daylight appearance shift
an improvement of time..
But alas a darker view
has veiled the daylight..
Strokes and depression
shade our manipulations..
And perhaps more:
time stands revealed
as a thought impermanent
arriving and departing
veiling our lives
with its seeming

Before the Music

Before the Music

And before the morning unfolds
we consider our experience
of that in which these
beginnings begin..
Imagining the transparency
of the joyous fullness
from which and in which
and as which
the song emerges...

Nature's Scripture

A friend's vision
of a remembered scene
this Seasonal experience
images of a cave and emptiness..
Joy and tears remembered
these memory colorations
of his Identity in
his writing moment..
Nature's Scripture...!

We learn that ego is not an entity
but activity that convinces
we are separate independent and free..
The truth lies else wise :
we are not separate as fragment
but connected and whole and 
only free with this Recognition..
The mind labels as ego
this seeming fragmentary "I"
and the world marches on
with egos by the billions
from birth to death on dark paths
both happy and dreary..
A story copied again and again
appears as our lot pending
sighting of a new morning...

Non-Dual Iphoneography

Non-Dual Iphoneography

Appreciation of this art
comes from appreciation
of  Non-dual Reality
in which we are all immersed..
This ubiquitous camera
comes as attachment to our
ubiquitous mobile phones..
It is the dream of photographers
with fondest wish to be
ready when the subject arrives..
The burdensome externals
lenses and filters and light
are subsumed in the 
readiness of the iPhone's
availability Now..
Now is not a moment
but what I am
colored by this
photo opportunity...!

A thought occurs
and then ends..but the mind
wishing to continue

searches for another
to consider and dismiss..
The mind not wishing
for you..Awareness..
to rest in that which
lies between...

Coloration this morning

Coloration this morning

First of all
we reset..knowing I Am..
lingering there
as the light transparent..
Then to return
to the place never left:
that seeming world
of every-thing..
And the Wholeness
I Am
adds morning coloration...

Tangles all around
it seems we live in the tangles
in this foreground..
How do we see the tangles
but with the light shining
in the background..
So..for a few moments
become that background
realize the new Self
that which you are..
Now see anew that foreground
left behind in the tangles..
The tangles seem with purpose
