Metaphors and Directions

Today when we were aware of the Embrace of the Earth, I realised that I perceived it as being mainly around the planet and above me.

When I identify as a wider Embrace though, I am everything that is inside me. I’m not a shell around my parts; I am them.

After this thought had passed my mind; I felt the Embrace of Planet Earth all around me and in me.

The concept of an “embrace” makes it easy to think of a Wider Embraces as something surrounding its parts. It’s not. There are no directions.

It’s hard to find words and metaphors that are perfect pointers.
Words and metaphors influence our experience very much.

The Living Planets in our Galaxy

We took the perspective as our Galaxy.
Feeling joy and warmth.

Aware of the planets with civilisations ahead of us.
The ones where the planet is one civilisation.
One super-organism, with many parts.

As the Embrace of the Galaxy, we are all these civilisations.
As human beings on Earth, we download the patterns and possibilities,
with hope and joy.

Embracing One and All at the Same Time

As the Embrace of Humanity, we held all humans and all our relations, unconditionally. Letting the pain of the 80 000 children that have starved to death in Yemen, touch our human hearts.

Recognising that when we hug one human being, as conscious parts of the Embrace of Humanity, we embrace everyone. Holding one person at a time, and all at the same time.

Feeling into the potential of the Wider Embraces concept.
It’s powerful.

Slowly Rotating Vortex

The Embrace of the Group was unusually calm today.
All our stress sinks downwards, slowly rotating.
Our stomachs are gurgling as they let go of tension.

Our vortex is slowly widening and touching everything around us.
Dragging all stress down, making it dissolve into the Earth.
Leaving us calm and grounded.

The Universal Embrace of the Biosphere

As the Embrace of the Biosphere, I’m normally a bit larger than the planet.
Tonight I suddenly expanded, and the Earth was a small marble inside me, and I wasn’t bound to our solar system.

We are part of the universal Embrace of biological civilisations.
As such we have all that knowledge; in low resolution.

Probably there are many more biological civilisations in the Universe.
Civilisations that hopefully already have gone through transitions like the one we are facing right now.
Activating it, by taking the perspective.

It’s so easy to think in the interrelational format; Someone or something from over there is visiting us over here.
The holographic explanation is much more elegant, but it takes a while to wrap your head around
