Nature is an exchange between life force, we are a part of it’s weave, it’s ebbs and flows. When the ground shakes we shake, and if you have ever felt this you know what  I mean. Nature time is a calibrator, it reconnects my being to the energy of the planet, other than what the man made structures and technology have to offer. Now this is an interesting point when one asks the question, is not everything in life ‘Nature’? Are we part of a wholistic, or are we seperate and divisive, or as Levi-Strauss would call it, in a state of  ‘binary opposition’; such that we do the things we do in order to mediate between these oppositons, and that this has been going on since we have been here on Earth. Answers to this question will inevitably bring an array of life experience and individuality which I would argue is what David Lewis-Williams* calls ‘full spectrum consciousness’, which is what some think the early versions of homo sapiens were already equipped with. Over time and subsequently 100’s of thousands of years of evolution later, we have come full circle. We currently live in a world with the technolgy and tools that allows us to further seek and draw from this ‘full spectrum of consciouness’, which is rather incredible, and it feels like it has been around forever in yet it is seems so new. Contemporary descriptions of ‘full spectrum consciousness’ come in a variety of labels, and yet to me they all speak of the same thing, and perhaps that is what unites us, and regretably divides us. I wish to continune on this thought thread, perhaps I will meet some new discoveries as I explore the idea of a ‘picture of everything.’ 

*if this resonates with you, you may be interested in ‘The Mind in the Cave’ a book by J. David Lewis-Williams Thames and Hudson, or even better yet go explore and spend time with cave art and rock art. 

**all ideas expressed here at Mahaloness are not necessarily those of the author, they are from the ‘full specturm consciousness’ and are intended for entertaiment purposes only.

The world I live in most days is the city. In citylife I am continually inundated by vibrational frequencies that foster a feeling of separation. A city is competitive, man made, hustle and bustle, fearful, fast, judgemental, and ego. Nature is humble, involved, and connected.  Although competition can be found in Nature, it is often found where there is an instability, which seems to be correlated with human related endeavors, animals given no choice in the matter because of our humanness and the hierarchies and divisions we created. – ‘hälts’

grey area, where human and Nature positively correlate

    

Its easy to get lost in the city, it is a complex weave that appears to go on forever.

INT. Cave. Night. 

Do you ever wonder where creative expression comes from? As I dive deep into the question I see myself in a cave, putting marks on a rock wall. Here, I am unable to comprehend comprehension, I am completely void of social influences, it is me and a wall, although the wall itself is a veil, which seperates this world from another world. Primordial instincts tell me that I am not alone. I place my hand on the wall becoming instantly connected to this other place and the veil dissolves, it becomes clear what I need to do.
