Footprints in the Windsm # 1075

I see that G*d is flow. Everything is flow. We are flow. Everything affects the flow and motion of everything else. We can consciously affect this flow.

We is more a collective thing than individual.

We are most individuated with others. The group flow makes special each person, highlights and activates what is most extraordinary about him or her. Each contributes what no one else can, and only through the gathering, seething, generating whole.

The whole births something that none alone could or would even imagine. The parts in whole are more than the sum of the parts, and more than any other mathematical operation on the parts or the whole: we creates from whole and from nothing. This is the world as I see it.

What does this mean to us? 1. Join in. 2. Make an effort to make no effort: ponder, observe, wait. 3. Jump when called to jump. 4. Choose the good direction. 5. Plan less: the world depends less on you than you imagine. 6. Meet more: the world depends more on you than you imagine.

Please pass it on.
