Random acts of awareness and the senseless random reality

Mechanics of a Shamanic Journey

Mechanics of a Shamanic Journey

Warriors of awareness are a devilish group. We dare to look, perceive and understand awareness in all its forms and formulas.  This is knowledge and goes way beyond words.  We learn to practice and our practice includes: honing our awareness, mastering the creative, building fortitude, being grateful, detachment as the observer, energetic maneuvers, and most important mastery of our selves…  And with practice comes the confidence we walk a good path with heart.  It’s beautiful, it’s filled with so much necessary value.  In fact it is these values which ring the bell and send into the universe resounding intent, Intent, INTENT….

The universe is a wonder. It is awesome.  At the subatomic level it looks chaotic and random, which in many ways it is.  So easily maneuvered into structure and pattern, this wonder soup which under-veils our world is highly impacted by thoughts, words and deeds.  Neat!  Quantum physicists are proving what seers have known for millennia.  At the other end of the spectrum, the super large, the universe is an extremely cold and sterile place with pockets of hot points so infernal that elements are being created every moment.  The sum total of all the physical, light, hot aspects of the universe is about 3%… the rest is dark matter and energy or the glue that holds the whole shebang together.

We live in the middle. What I call the gross universe.  The heavy, the overlayered multilayered onion of physical, mental, emotional and of course spiritual framework we call life.  There are patterns within patterns overlayering patterns of patterns that are patterns of patterns… and the job of most of those patterns is to continue their existence by constantly maintaining their edges in the midst of the chaos on one side and the hot exchanges and tidal forces of the 4 fundamental energies from the big bang.

So warriors practice recapitulation. We practice and we practice and we practice some more.  And we gather personal power, and we become lighter, energetic beings.  We become fluid and practitioners of the beautiful dance that includes those wonderous values and disciplines mentioned above.

But the trap of such power is in thinking that there is always a direct cause and effect for everything in the universe. One of the darker statements that the new age, and in fact all ages has ever come up with is “Everything happens for a reason.”  The judgement and control in this statement amazes the warrior of freedom…. For it is the trap of reason that thinks this is true.  And that if we just do all these things then everything will just be right for all the right reasons.  And we will be safe and live a long life, evidence of our spiritual path…. Ha! Folly!

The universe is devilish, it has a wonderful randomness which causes new structures forms and patterns to emerge at all times. It is constantly organizing possibilities, and as a result many things go the way of the dodo bird.  Reach and end and done.  Reality is not just perception, it is also what is not perceived. It is what is.  There are forces which we cannot see, and randomness we cannot event come to understand.  But what are we so afraid of?  Time, my friends, time.  We want more and we gamble the fools gamble on the practices as though they will give us more time.  That is not what the warrior’s practices are about.  They are about living infinity in this moment… There is no future, there is no past.  There is no effect directly tied to the cause of all of our work except fluidity and freedom.  And freedom is beyond our sense of control.

For us to face forward and dart past the eagle to be free, it will be the randomness, the things we cannot change and the way we handle that freedom from all of our patterns and all our designs on the freedom we have practiced that will help let us leap into infinity. So much is random, so much just happens for no reason at all.  There is no one to blame, no one to frame, especially not ourselves.  There is only our silent knowledge that it is beyond our control and beyond our awareness from these gross bundles of form that we have invested so much in to ultimately let go, release and fly.

A does not equal A or B or C in the ultimate logic of and magic of the universe. She is far too interesting to be trapped in our manipulations of the patterns.  Warriors practice to gather the energy; not to have a battery to combat death or the patterns or extend this point… we practice to move beyond all points of this and that and to walk into awe with awareness intact.  It’s beautiful, it’s amazing, it’s scary… it is what it is.
