Cannac “There is no form without spirit” explores energies behind the easily observable 3rd Dimension. Humans have many ways of describing these energies: the 7 directions (Native American)…the Seven Hermetic Principles…the 7 chakras (Vedic)…7 spiritual laws of success (Deepak Chopra)…all ephemeral labels for diverse experiences with unseen forces interacting with the forms that we perceive our world and ourselves to be. These energy or “spirit” dimensions connect us to a matrix of energy and the many layers of transient life.
Earth’s umbilical: Yoda Tree grounds us in the animated living library of Mother Earth: a trailhead to a Universe of pure potential and abundance as a tree drinks from both ground and sky. In a domain of infinite energy, giving and receiving is a volley on the field of Imagination games without winners or losers. “As the cow jumped over the moon,” coyote coaxes out the inner child while the cat plays a fiddle and the dish runs away with a spoon. Messenger particles have a peculiar gravity as electrons provide direct access for spirit into the physical world. Reverberations of karmic energy blossoms return in like kind, as ripples in water reach the banks and spiral back towards their kinetic origin. The Sun exhibits symbiotic balance of form and energy: a silent witness of mass into light… a symbol of the unlimited expanse of heart-space in each of us. Nature’s intelligence flows with effortless ease, and follows the path of least resistance: ancient wisdom, remembered, illuminates possibilities opening before us. “Primary intelligence” is the instruction manual for the mechanics of fulfillment inherent in every intention and desire! Speaking becomes and Infinite horizon of organizing power and the peace of listening floats on observing without judgment in both dreamtime and wake-time. A yin-yang oscillation of creation multiplies fractally in and out, up and down, over and through and our walk through life is balanced. 10,000 fireflies illuminate the switchbacks on the trail to our special purpose and hearts desire. Personal truth and individual talent proliferates in life-giving harmony with form and spirit inseparable.
