Looking over Molokini towards the slopes of Maui, where Makena Bay, sits on right; Kihei in the centre; and Lahaina is out of view on the left, these points anchoring the northern threshold to the 'House of the Sun', Haleakala.
The image on the left was the cover of my first book. This triad of perspective more than illustrates the harmonic unity we make equally real and true when we celebrate the Unity that occurs through our diversity.
Because today is my final day in Israel, a 2+ month adventure coming to an end, with a return already planned even as another begins, yesterday morning I promised myself to write and post the Dia.BLOG.ue at midnight in order to have the freedom to focus my remaining hours with my family of the heart. After celebrating an amazing 5-hour dialogue and a delicious dinner with friends as we found and followed "the red thread" that links the ancient mysteries left by Abraham, Kabbalistic knowledge, and modern science, I returned to my home-away-from-home —Toda robah Eliran and Dafne— where I sat down to pause and reflect on what my heart wanted to share. Instantly, I found myself time travelling to the spring of 1996 and the island of Maui! Without missing a beat, my heart skipped and jumped for joy as I stood on the beach front lanai where I spent two months writing my first book, this sojourn the generous gift of a friend. The brine of the sea was overwhelming, was as real as the breeze touching my face as I gazed across Maui’s sandy beaches towards the crescent island of Molokini where countless days were spent snorkelling and diving with my Dad. As my inner eyes looked to the left, time slipped and Makena Bay came into view and images came to mind reminding me of the summer day in 1977 when we scattered his ashes in the sea.
Without returning to the present, I remembered sitting at the desk and knowing why the word MUSIC was the only word in my manuscript with all capital letters; it was because this the strongest sense felt in my dance with the arcing angles of death. It surprised a lot of people, all of whom expected the emphasised word to be ‘Love’. This was certainly understandable given that since 1987 my Purpose was and remains to ‘remember, understand and be loving’ this the heart of the message and the method.
Then and now MUSIC is the clearest expression of the logic of Love for me, and when I feel it in as few as three notes friends will tell you that tears often well up from an unimaginable depth as remembering leads to a longing that causes my heart to overflow. These perspectives of one dynamic, The Mereon love knot, are so much more than a metaphor for the harmonic unity that I experienced in death. They hint at the power Source that frees me to do my utmost to co-create harmony in this and every moment. This knotted path is the scientific knowledge that colleagues and I presented to the world in the book ‘The Mereon Matrix: Unity, Perspective and Paradox’, where the cover art is a snapshot of the dynamic that only hints at its complexity.
Having no beginning and no end, every ending embedded in a restart, this link connects all forms within the matrix. So too, it is the covenant that bonds each one of us to one another. We are formed of stardust and joined by the movement of invisible forces, angles —geometry— that rotate, spin, spiral so that we can infinitely expand to fill empty space. Just like the rainbows we see in the sky, this optical and meteorological knotted spherical phenomenon is magic, produced by the reflection, refraction and dispersion of light in water droplets. This beauty continuously fills me with awe, doing so in the same way that finding a rainbow bridging heaven with Earth does! Better still, is when grace flows and I hear, feel and see the harmony that moves when I love myself and the overflow opens me to allow another in. This is when the melody becomes clear and the spectrum of light bridges two souls across infinite distance in time and space, illumining the gold within the heart of both.
This thought dropped me back into the present moment where I was reminded once again how it is that when we free ourselves we’re able to grow faster than we ever imagined. Think about and the reason becomes clear; travelling the arc is a far shorter journey than transiting the angle! So it is that When we get out of our own way, energy flows and we fly in an arc of grace as divine connection joins us with all that Is —the passed (not one of us has flunked or failed our past), the present moment, and the future. Miracles arise in remembering that we, humanity and all creation, are One Family, everything w-holy united within the flow of Eternity. While remembering this comes with elegant ease, making what is true real in our world is certainly not always easy, this something I’ve learned in every ‘world’ I’ve walked and laid my head. It was after 01.30 when I finally went to to post these thoughts, and while my intent was good, the cosmic jokesters apparently wanted me to sleep on it because our website was temporarily down for technical maintenance!
So it is that as I prepare to post these thoughts and do what must be done in this morning light, pack my bags and prepare to take flight once again, let me say that I may not be able to find or make time to write in the next few days as I’ll be riding the rainbow, bridging the 1,650 kilometers (2,655 miles) between Tel Aviv and Milan as I make my way home to new ‘nest’ in Minusio [Locarno], Switzerland. While I’m at 37,000 feet, walking Lago Maggiore with my friend Urs for a couple of days, and flying to Denmark for a week of parties and packing, I invite you to feel the Rainbows that connect your body, heart, brain and spirit. Allow the truth, beauty and feather-like light of nothingness to fill any hole you may have in the fabric of your life, and use it as a balm to heal every emotional paper cut. As you allow it to bridge every gap in your heart, then permit it to fill any mental crevasse you come to. Believe me, I do so often, taking my own medicine my daily prescription. Living in the flow of infinite ease is in no way to be confused with easy, but let me assure you that doing so lifts unimaginable emotional burdens, and moves the biggest mental boulders that obstruct my path. What’s as amazing is how every time I face the rainbow, not the light, the lights in my inner world come up to full wattage.
Remember that when we bring our tears into the light of day, they too are filled with rainbows. Don’t hide your sorrow, for when others see these droplets, their world opens with and together we can harness the power of such moments, harnessing rainbows as the Divine fills the gaps with stardust. As our hearts refill, new thoughts and songs arise, and they are the wind that sends our spirit soaring. This morning it is with joy that I recall that every breath is an opportunity to live wholly and fully as I heal, growing through the muck and mire as I get over my story, both the physical detritus and the emotional remnants that remain after one of life’s stormy moments.
Today I will harness the courage to capture rainbows. Will you? With every conscious breath I will renew my commitment to cultivate understanding, and invite you to join me as I renew what is my most solemn vow; to laugh long and often and let my attitudes, tones and actions be filled with loving.
If you are ready to live a life without compromise, make a promise and seal it with a rainbow and you will begin to live and grow deep in the flow of the Love Knot.
Thank you so much for following and participating in this dialogue. I am deeply grateful for your passing it on to friends and family you feel will find it meaningful.
P.S. And as my apologies for the typos and spelling errors that always seem be found after posting no matter how many times I 'proof' my thoughts! More than one friend has generously offered to proof for me, but time zone differences make this all but impossible :)
