DSC03204 (800x600)As I was forming this Lady of the Woods (see the first one here ) I reached a point where I felt I had to decide whether she was returning to the Wood or it was the moment of her genesis.

As it, more often than not, happens I went on a spiral of meditating upon that; life & death, sleeping & waking up…
And then I remembered the words from Alan Watts ( which you can hear at the Music? section under “The Real You” title) :

“… A lot of people are afraid that when they die , they gonna be locked up in a dark room forever & sort of undergo that.
But one of the most interesting things in the world, this is a yoga, this is a way of realization  :

try & imagine what it would be like to go to sleep & never wake up.
Think about that…children think about it. It’s one of the great wonders of life.

What it would be like to go to sleep & never wake up…

And if you think long enough about that, something will happen.
You will find out, among other things, that it will pose the next question to you.

What was it like to wake up after having never gone to sleep ?

That was when you were born…”

Inception :  an act, process, or instance of beginning.  Synonyms: birth, genesis, beginning, threshold, nascence.

Υπήρξε μία στιγμή κατά τη διάρκεια της μορφοποίησης αυτής της Lady of the Woods ( μπορείτε να δείτε την πρώτη εδώ ), που προέκυψε το ερώτημα αν η λαίδη μας πέθαινε επιστρέφοντας στο ξύλο της ή αν ήταν η Γένεση της.
Διαλογιζόμενος με αυτή την αφορμή πάνω στη ζωή & το θάνατο θυμήθηκα τα λόγια του Alan Watts ( μπορείτε να τον ακούσετε στη Music? με τίτλο The Real You ) :
“… Πολλοί άνθρωποι φοβούνται ότι όταν πεθάνουν, θα μείνουν να υποφέρουν την ατελείωτη ανυπαρξία σε ένα σκοτεινό δωμάτιο.
Όμως ένα από τα πιο ενδιαφέροντα πράγματα στο κόσμο, που είναι κατ’ουσίαν μια οδός συνειδητοποίησης, μια γιόγκα, είναι το εξής :
φανταστείτε πως θα ήταν να πάτε για ύπνο & να μην ξυπνήσετε ποτέ…
Σκεφτείτε το…τα παιδιά το σκέφτονται! Είναι ένα από τα θαύματα της ζωής.

Πώς θα ήταν να κοιμηθείτε & να μην ξυπνήσετε ποτέ…

Κάτι θα συμβεί, αν το σκεφτείτε αρκετά.
Μεταξύ άλλων, θα δείτε ότι σας παρουσιάζει το επόμενο ερώτημα.

Πώς θα ήταν να ξυπνήσετε ενώ δεν έχετε πάει ποτέ για ύπνο ;

Όπως τη στιγμή που γεννηθήκατε…”

  2. I have this early memory of seeing a faint orange glow and remembering that I had seen it before. It’s probably something from my early years when I was maybe one or two, but I’ve always been tempted to imagine that it was from my fetal months before birth. “…to wake up after having never gone to sleep.” That expresses the feeling perfectly. I remember my young mind trying to attach meaning to that faint orange light. At the time, the meaning was simply that I’d seen it before. That was enough to satisfy me.

    • Thank you for sharing this and, again, so glad to be in your company after your recent events.

      Imagine what it would be like to gain insight one day, to our early consciousness… who knows…maybe as we struggle to find out what really energy is, we will open up new possibilities that will enable us to further our understanding in that area too.
