The Embrace of Me Now

The atoms that are me right now changes with every breath, every sip, every bite.
The cells that are me right now changes with every cell that divides or dies.
The ideas and knowledge that are me right now change with every interaction.

I’m a constant flow of matter, life and culture.
And I am the Embrace of all of this.

The Embrace of me is constant because it’s only present right now.
To change, you need a past and a future.

The Galaxy in All Directions

Yesterday I leaned out into the Embrace of the Galaxy three times, in three different settings.

Firstly online together with a male friend; Stretching out into the Embrace of the Galaxy with the intention to connect and gain new perspectives.

Secondly online with three female friends; Floating out and up into the Embrace of the Galaxy, resting, feeling the energy and belonging.

Thirdly by myself; Going nowhere, just being Embraced by the Galaxy from all directions, as always.

Though all three had all the directions present and the same flavour.

Words Pointing Home

I live in a linked house with my 87-year-old father. Usually, I embrace our “household” or our “family”, but today I changed and used the word “home”.

A very different quality; deeper, warmer, more love, more of an alive cocoon.
A bit uncomfortable for me as a modern, individualistic woman.

A family is based on kinship.
A household is a physical place.
A home is something that transcends and includes both.

We have experienced this so many times, that how we frame and name the Embrace, determines what we experience.
Our words are pointers to different layers of reality.

My Interior is Private

This morning, when I identified as the Embrace of me, this human being, I wondered why all my thoughts, memories and emotions are invisible to the Embrace of the Biosphere, or any other of my wider Embrace.

When I take the perspective as Humanity, I’m embracing all human beings and all their interactions, but I’m not concerned with their personal emotions and thoughts. It’s all about how it is to be me, the Embrace of Humanity.

I love this asymmetric blindness.
I have access to the subjectivity of what I belong to, though in low resolution.
I don’t have access to the subjectivity of my parts.

The complex web of connectedness

Focusing on the inside of this human body:
Recognising all the Embraces of all my parts;
Organs, cells, atoms, particles.

Focusing on the outside of this human body:
Recognising all the Embraces of everything I’m part of;
Family, society, humanity, biosphere, planet, galaxy, universe.

Aware of the immense quality of belonging that is the reality of my life.
The complex web of connectedness with Everything.
