To speak of “edges” it becomes necessary to quote William Irwin Thompson
“Edges are important because they define a limitation in order to deliver us from it. When we come to an edge we come to a frontier that tells us that we are now about to become more than we have been before. As long as one operates in the middle of things, one can never really know the nature of the medium in which one moves.”
It is my opinion that the fullest experiences of life force come from living on the edge; and the passions that come from feelings that bring heightened awareness. The moments when instinct takes over logic and one enters a completely authentic, ecstatic life force current. These are the mysteries so full with vibration and resonance; creativity fueled.
This is also the very feel that silences the clamor and invites the Still Point. I regularly use the words Still Point to describe the momentary cessation of a rhythm or pattern. The point where everything is one thing…. the pause between exhale and inhale; the connection to the unified field of Creation.
Entering edges and feeling true response is to be at the threshold staring into the Still Point. Stepping forward and arriving at this center, it becomes possible to shape shift reality. This is where my most profound weaving takes place and migrates into the frescos created immediately after.
I am free and connected when submerged in instinctual feelings incomprehensible and uncontrollable. Within this larger framework of consciousness, the path through this world of ego becomes illuminated darkness; here, the bondage of culture, the bondage of self-image, the bondage of religion recedes from my awareness. Instinctual feelings free me from the persecution of cultural group think. Through this door exists the Me that I know and love.
