I’m away from home at the moment and there’s less for me to do – no fridge to raid, no store to go to, not even a sunset to watch.
Consequently I find myself lying on my bed and musing. And I just noticed the flow of ideas that are flooding through me. They’re coming out so steadily that I’d tire from recording them all.
It’s getting to be that I actually need at least one to two hours a night before sleeping to just debrief myself – to allow the free flow of ideas that go through me to have free play.
You recall the day that I experienced a deep peace. It came about from watching the flow of ideas as if they were faces on a railway platform and I was on the train.
I think that, by doing this, I was detaching from attachment to any one idea or even to ideas themselves. They became something apart from me – a simple flow of ideas that I was watching, as if they were on television.
I saw a face that was supremely peaceful and as our gazes met, something occurred. And I felt a very deep peace.
Well, the flow of ideas right now is somewhat like that. I have to just observe the flow of ideas without getting attached to anything that’s said, just as I did that day.
But I do make note of the phenomenon of having a free flow of ideas, these days.
What ideas were they? I have no functioning short-term memory but I’ll try.
It started out that I was musing that I was interviewing a new staff member for Michaelangelo and Partners. And I found myself stressing conflict resolution because so many of the ventures I’ve been associated with have failed because insoluble disagreements arose.
We had no conflict protocol and we folded when situations arose. (And it was mostly vasanas. or core issues that did us in.) I don’t want to see that happen in the next group of companies.
The next musing was that I was at a weekend conference of Michaelangelo and Partners – similar to the professional-development weekends we had at the Immigration and Refugee Board. And we were discussing the value of listening, conflict resolution, equitability in work conditions, decision-making, credibility analysis, etc.
I went into each of these areas in my mind and … that’s as much as I can remember. I’ve been just lying here for more than an hour, just needing to express and listen to what’s flowing through me.
Michael said that I’d know that he wanted to write when I’m just itching to get at the keyboard. He’s also said that he wants me to write about the inner work. A journal of Ascension; an Ascension ethnography.
And the blog and the foundations are a co-creative partnership. This flow of ideas may be coming as a result of the fruition of those circumstances.
I have no idea whether this flow of ideas is an ephemeral event or a “new normal.”
As an aside, I’m going to follow a piece of advice Werner Erhard used to give us. While we’re in an est Training, see all changes that happen to us as having resulted from that event. That focuses and enhances the power of the event. So from now on I’m going to attribute all changes that happen to me to Ascension.
That focuses and enhances the power of the energies that are being radiated to us and facilitates the dropping of false grids and core issues that is happening with so many of us right now, etc.
As part of my gradual Ascension, I’m experiencing a flow of ideas which, if I don’t give them expression in some way, if only by lying down and listening to myself, I’m definitely like a tire ready to burst. I need to let some air out and I do that by just observing the flow of ideas. And actually hearing myself.
I need to go with the flow of ideas. Flow is the paradigm of the Fifth Dimension – flow of ideas, flow of love, flow of organizational behavior.
