Kavita Byrd - Re-Uniting Spirit and Matter



Interconnection and Oneness

We live in a unified web of life, an interconnected field of Consciousness, energy, and matter. Our true nature is that Consciousness, the unified Source from which everything else flows—the manifestation of this world, including our bodies and all that surrounds them. There is no actual boundary between ‘inner’ and ‘outer.’ This means that everything we do touches the whole Universe and vice versa. We cannot isolate ourselves either way.

Today especially, when our mistaken sense of separation has driven us to a life of great fragmentation and conflict, we need to start living again from the Source that connects us all, invoking its unity, harmony, and beauty into all levels of our being, our psyche, and our society. This is the fundamental basis of the personal and global healing that is so much needed today, which will bring us home to our true Wholeness.

The spirit of interconnection and Oneness permeates the whole Kosmos; all of our outer systems, no less than our inner ones, need to reflect and embody this. The same core truth of interdependence and Oneness that exists at the spiritual level applies also to the material level, the bio-systems of our body, the ecosystems in which we live, as well as our social, energy, and economic systems. Because it is the true nature of all that exists—that cuts across all divides—not only our spiritual worldview but also our cultural, economic, ecological, and energy structures all need to reflect the spirit of interconnection and Oneness if we are to live in a truly healthy global society.

Jiddu Krishnamurti - Death



DROP EVERYTHING,
... AND BE AS NOTHING

"When death comes, it does not ask your permission; 
it comes and takes you; it destroys you on the spot. 

In the same way, can you totally drop hate, envy, pride of possession, attachment to beliefs, to opinions, to ideas, to a particular way of thinking? 

Can you drop all that in an instant? 

There is no “how to drop it”, because that is only another form of continuity. 
To drop opinion, belief, attachment, greed, or envy is to die
—to die every day, every moment.

If there is the coming to an end of all ambition from moment to moment, 
then you will know the extraordinary state of being Nothing,
of coming to the abyss of an eternal movement, as it were, and dropping over the edge—which is death. 

I want to know all about death, because death may be reality; 
it may be what we call God
—that most extraordinary something that lives and moves 
and yet has no beginning and no end."

Rumi ♡ Whirling


 

Sema is the food of the lovers of God,
for within it is the taste of tranquility of mind.
Dance when you're broken open.
Dance when you've torn the bandage off.
Dance in the middle of fighting.
Dance in your blood.
Dance when you're perfectly free.
Struck, the dancer hears a tambourine inside her,
like a wave that crests into foam at the very top, begins.
Maybe you don't hear that tambourine, or the tree leaves clapping time.
Close the ears on your head that listen mostly to lies and cynical jokes.
There are other things to see, and hear.
Music. Dance. A brilliant city inside your soul!
O Lover of God, when you start whirling you leave the two worlds.
This world of whirling is out of the two worlds.
The ceiling of the seventh heaven is at considerable height.
But the ladder of whirling reaches and exceeds this ceiling.
Those who know the secret power of the whirling, live in God:
Love is slaying and reviving
Them - they know it . . . .
This is a gathering of Lovers.
In this gathering there is no high, no low, no smart,
no ignorant, no special assembly, no grand discourse,
no proper schooling required
