TECHNOLOGY..........

In “Conversations with God”, by Neale Donald Walsch, there is a warning I think of. I refer to it as the Atlantis passage, and I've quoted it a few times before." As I have said, this isn't the first time your civilization has been at this brink,"

God tells Walsch. "I want to repeat this, because it is vital that you hear this. Once before on your planet, the technology you developed was far greater than your ability to use it responsibly. You are approaching the same point in human history again. It is vitally important that you understand this. Your present technology is threatening to outstrip your ability to use it wisely. Your society is on the verge of becoming a product of your technology rather than your technology being a product of your society. When a society becomes a product of its own technology, it destroys itself."

Rilke on Letting Go......."The Swan"




THE SWAN
by Rilke

This laboring through what is still undone,
as though, legs bound, we hobbled along the way is like the awkward walking of the swan.

And dying -- to let go, no longer feel
the solid ground we stand on every day --
is like his anxious letting himself fall

into the water, which receives him gently, and which, as though with reverence and joy,
draws back past him in streams on either side;
while, infinitle silent and aware,
in his full majesty and ever more
indifferent,  he condescends to glide.


Once I lived for a time on the shores of a lake where swans were brought in by some residents to live.  I was in total wonder of their presence, so close.  I would sit on the bank, studying them intently. Even more interesting, is to study them as an archetype with their untold grace and majesty of spirit as they glide.  Yet under the water their legs are going at an amazing rate to project them forward.  They were also the hierarchy of the water animals in that lake...geese, ducks, etc.

As each would glide up and down the lake, you could see the others literally moving out of the way, in both respect and, likely, some fear.  For if one would challenge the gliding, or quest for food, the swan would become immediately ired.  What could easily be a called a brawl would ensue.  In the end, the swan was always victor.

The swan has many psychological meanings.  A Jungian-based summary is found on:

A dream sense is found at :

The above poem has always fascinated me, with its many implications, it could be representative of aging, or death. Or, it can be the release we can effect in our everyday lives.  That involves much practice.  To me, it involves a trust in process, a trust of Universe / Creator, to provide to us dependent on our energy, soul vibrations, and degree of JOY we are able to access frequently.

Indeed, it is the JOY factor.  Often joy is the breathtaking bestowal awarded us in our later years.  The ultimate requirement is an enduring and boundless journey of humility, accountability, compassion, courage, resiliency ... and loving.
