“Hello world. I’m here!” Yes, the world sees you. You are in it and of it. Your are experiencing the world around you; responding to it, moving through it, and shaping it.
Your thoughts arise from your brain, yet your mind exists beyond it. Emotions are the result of the nervous system and its relationship with a wide variety of organs and hormones as well as your brain and its thoughts. Your physical body manifests as the result of… well, mostly pure magic. It is constantly evolving and changing in relation to both the interior world of thoughts and emotions and the exterior world people, places, and things. All of your expressions play out through this vessel, called you, on this stage called Earth. Containers abound.
Step 11 explores these containers or vessels or stages, all of which constitute our Ground of Being. Life on Earth is a magnificent parade of expressive beings… from caterpillars to cacti, from gazelles to garnet, from fireflies to fungi, from peacocks to porpoises. For the next several meditations, we will bring our luminous perceptions down to land in the space called “embodiment.”
