Jonathan Livingston Seagull

“They are saying in the Flock that if you are not the Son of the Great Gull Himself”, Fletcher told Jonathan one morning after Advanced Speed Practice, “then you are a thousand years ahead of your time.”
Jonathan sighed. The price of being misunderstood he thought. They call you devil or they call you god. “What do you think, Fletch? Are we ahead of our time?”
A long silence, “Well, this kind of flying has always been here to be learned by anyone who wanted to discover it; that’s got nothing to do with time. We’re ahead of the fashion, maybe. Ahead of the way that most gulls fly.”“That’s something,” Jonathan said, rolling to glide inverted for a while. “That’s not half as bad as being ahead of our time”.

Circles within Circles


She talked about circles within circles...- the fractal (holographic) nature of the universe, which is actually what Gregg Braden's book Fractal Time is about (I just finished reading it). The ancients also knew this wisdom in the Hermetic dictum "As above, so Below"...

Braden describes how Einstein determined that space and time are inseparable...we live in  a space-time continuum. The patterns in physical nature are due to fractal geometry http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fractal, repeating patterns with patterns...as above so below...the holographic universe is another description of this - see  Michael Talbot -
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Talbot_%28author%29 and holography http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hologram So, a change at one point/place in the universe also occurs at every other point/place.

If space and time are inseparable and matter is energy then time is also an energy, which also exists in fractal patterns that repeat themselves in cycles or as waves that propagate through space-time!

According to quantum physics, all possible futures genuinely exist in the fabric of reality as possibilities - some are more probable than others, but the fractal waves of time set the conditions for the probabilities of these possible events, but it isn't a linear relationship...since the state of our consciousness is capable of altering those events...things that look probable, which are manifestations of lower energy don't happen (higher energy always trumps lower energy in terms of frequency, amplitude etc), things associated with higher energies...joy, peace, love, harmony, coherence do happen...and the energies of 2012 - this period in time that the ancients spoke of - this is our opportunity to help change the world.


We are all being given a choice..when we make choices in our lives from a state of expanded consciousness we allow more possibilities for growth and evolution to manifest themselves...so, everyone, whether they realise it or not, is caught up in that energy.  We don't achieve change by fighting for it, by struggle...we effect change by applying
the energy of the universe through us - by Being, which is of course within us - to help manifest this change at the choice points we have in the quantum flux of energy, which is time....that is the Doing - also called Right Action!

So, there are circles within circles and cycles within cycles...beautiful!
