If you're like me, you're feeling a bit lost in space these days.

While you'd love to settle in and ground yourself in the moment, the larger part of you is swimming in an unfamiliar body of water -- like you've never been here before, you have no map, and no one seems to know how to get there from here.

Your being wants to disconnect from it all, to float free and allow some Greater Intelligence to guide and direct you -- but who can afford to do that?

There's rent to pay, groceries to buy, meetings to attend, deadlines to satisfy.  We're mired in collective economic distress -- we can't just let go from the sense of control we think we have... right?

Well, it's not like we have any choice in the matter.

These past few days, the planet Saturn (time and structure) is in an exact 120-degree aspect with Neptune (timelessness and a wild abandonment of structure).

We are ALL dealing with distortions in the space-time continuum.

We are ALL questioning our grip on things.

And, especially, we are ALL challenged to be okay with this set of circumstances.

We're asked to allow this review of our basic beliefs.  We're asked to consider, in an open-minded way, different options for negotiating the unfoldment of our lives.  We are, in fact, prodded to release from our need to control things, and to TRUST that these underlying shifts and turns will eventually place us in an optimal position in this life.

Our human family is collectively working it out.  We, as individuals, DO have a role to play.  A new and improved reality IS in the offing.

We must, however, practice patience.  There's no point in jumping from one neurotic action to another -- we just spin our wheels when we do that, we waste our energy, and (in the end) we experience intense resistance when we could just as easily experience the music of FLOW....

My advice -- to myself and others -- is to listen to the still, small voice inside, which strongly suggests that we follow a shared urge toward contemplation.

We need to curl up with a book.

We need to pray.

We need to check-in with our bodies, breath into the painful spots, allow PNEUMA to trigger relaxation and healing.

We need to release from the self-imposed expectations that rob us of the present moment.

We need to free ourselves into timelessness -- and in this freedom, we will learn what it is to function at a high level... regardless....

After all... this, too, shall pass....

Thank-you Michael for posting yet another deeply reflective blog. I always enjoy reading your blogs, because they tend to give voice to my life.

In 2000 I traversed the last layers of the 8 stages of religious experience to full liberation, and found my sense of space-time collapse, when the barriers to my previous lifetimes fell, and they all just cascaded into my awareness. Ever since, the concept of time has been meaningless to me. All of the effort to maintain existence in Western Civilization has ceased to be relevant. So, now I live, happily, as a mendicant on the fringe of Civilization.

Thanks, Jeffrey, for your kind words. I look forward to meditating with you this December in Arizona -- and, perhaps, escaping the space-time matrix as you have done....

I look forward to that too, my friend.
