Volkswagen has produced a levitating car. A surveillance camera in Indonesia has captured what looks like a humanoid coming down to Earth and then almost immediately rising back up into the sky. Some crop circles appearing these days are about as intricate as I can imagine. I had reason to stop by my Facebook site, which I hardly ever do (it’s used exclusively to repost the 2012 Scenario) and people are posting just a continuous flow of the most unusual and mind-bending things.
I’m not sure there is any way to keep up with all that is appearing around the world and around the Internet. And I suppose that’s the way it will be, only multiplied, for the rest of the year.
It reminds me of the first few minutes at the annual exhibition fairground, you know, when you get through the gate with a chunk of change in your pocket and everything beckons? No one has landed and already a plethora of newness is springing up all around us. More than we can even imagine.
I can only speak about it personally. I’m interested to see all these sights and novelties and I could press myself into staying around even longer than we will to sample them all. But, as unusual as it all is, I know down to my bones that none of it will satisfy for long.
The only thing that satisfies for any length of time, at least for me, is that which comes from the Divine. I must be the world’s greatest killjoy but I’m not even thrilled by thoughts of travelling through space and seeing some of the amazing nebulae and galaxies. In fact what calls to me more and more, even in the face of all these outer wonders, is the inner world.
Perhaps it’s no surprise that I’m bound for a meditation retreat today. Even as the world explodes in novelty, I find myself seeking the inward.
I know the Boss has told me that I’ve spent many lifetimes as a monk and I suppose the call of the wild is hitting me again. God is the wild. God is the lawless. No law can apply to God. No order can bind God. So even as there is this explosion of outer miracles and sights to see, I find myself sinking further and further into self-reflection.
I don’t know whether I’m grievously out of step or whether this was meant to be. Is it part of the Transition that the Boss and the Mother have spoken about? Having seen the inner universe once in my life, I know that everything outer is available inwardly. And more.
I asked the Mother why knowledge of her was more precious than rubies yesterday. And she said: “More precious than anything.” Knowledge of God the Father/Mother is more precious than everything and it alone is what I seek. The greatest show on Earth is beginning and here I am, wanting to sit this one out. Literally, sit. As the Zen master said, this three square feet of ground under my feet is sufficient for me. Not only sufficient. It’s all I seek.
