The Sixth Path: Gravity to Fire

GravityThe fourth path is gravity to fire.

Chartreuse to red.

The name of this path is found by pronouncing the phonemes in the following order.

  • The Universe Within
    1. …or the sound of the letters, “ee.”
  •  Gravity
    1. …or the sound, “a” makes in the word, “bat.”
  • The consonant that associates Gravity and Fire.
    1. …or the sound, “Z,” makes in the word, “Zoo.”
  • Fire
    1. …or the sound the letter, “u,” makes in the word, “put.”
  • An Ending
    1. …or the sound made by the letter, “n.”

Yeahzun is the intersection of the collective unconscious with your will and intuition. The will to live, eat, drink and reproduce all stem from the collective unconscious and this path deals with the instincts we feel within that context.

The fuel of jealousy lives here (though jealousy itself lives with water). The thing that triggers your jealousy lives in your personal unconscious but your capacity to experience the jealousy has roots in the collective unconscious.

The collective unconscious is also where archetypes (categories) live. The archetype of love rises out of the collective unconscious, floats up through your personal unconsciousness which gives it some form and flavor and then finally it floats up into your conscious mind where you can choose whether or not you’re going to act on it.

The Fourth Path: Electromagnetism to Water

The fourth path is electromagnetism to water.

Purple to blue.

The name of this path is found by pronouncing the phonemes in the following order.

  • The Universe Within
    1. …or the sound of the letters, “ee.”
  •  Electromagnetism
    1. …or the sound, “oo” makes in the word, “boot.”
  • The consonant that associates Electromagnetism and Water.
    1. …or the sound, “K,” makes in the word, “Kim.”
  • Water
    1. …or the sound the letter, “e,” makes in the word, “beg.”
  • An Ending
    1. …or the sound made by the letter, “n.”

Eyouken is the intersection of your persona and your emotions.

Pure water insulates against electricity. Water conducts electricity only when there are mineral impurities.

The Third Path: Electromagnetism To Earth

The third path is electromagnetism to earth.

Purple to green.

The name of this path is found by pronouncing the phonemes in the following order.

  • The Universe Within

    1. …or the sound, “r,” makes in the word, “rim.”
  • Earth
    1. …or the sound the letter, “u,” makes in the word, “bug.”
  • An Ending

Eyourun is the intersection of your persona and your physical body and it’s sensations.

The attraction that lightning has for the ground is a manifestation of this.

The Second Path: Electromagnetism to Air

The second path is electromagnetism to air.

Purple to yellow.

The name of this path is found by pronouncing the phonemes in the following order.

  1. The Universe Within
    1. …or the sound of the letters, “ee.”
  2.  Electromagnetism
    1. …or the sound, “oo” makes in the word, “boot.”
  3. The consonant that associates Electromagnetism and Air.
    1. …or the sound, “f,” makes in the word, “fin.”
  4. Air
    1. …or the sound the letter, “i,” makes in the word, “fin.”
  5. An Ending
    1. …or the sound made by the letter, “n.”

Eyoufin is the intersection of your persona and your intellect. What thoughts do you act on? What thoughts don’t you want to act on?

Are there thoughts you wish you could conjure? Are there thoughts you wish you could send away?

Lightening is an external manifestation of this.

A New Earthling

If Gaia had hands what would you expect her to do with them?

If Gaia had a voice what would you expect her to say?

If Gaia had feet, where would they take her? How would she dance?

If Gaia could cry, what would she cry for?

If Gaia could do magic, what would be her intention?


We aren’t just human and we don’t exist in a vacuum.

We understand that our health is dependent upon the health of the whole system that supports us.

But we must go further. The sentence above still presumes a line of separation between us and Gaia and that is the line we must work systematically to dissolve.

We are not, “on,” Gaia. We are not defenders of Gaia.

We are Gaia and we’re defending ourselves.

Gaia has several sets of hands. You’re in control of one set.

She has a billion voices. Yours is one.

She has tears to shed, dances to dance and magic to do.

What are you waiting for, Gaialing?

Gaia The Patient

I’m a member of several online groups who’s intent is to take action to improve the health of Gaia.

There are a couple of ways to help a sick patient.

  1. Attack the disease.
  2. Support the patient’s immune system.
  3. Manage the symptoms.

1) Attack The Disease

This is the most direct approach, but to take it we must understand what is really ailing the patient. That isn’t always an easy thing to accomplish, especially when the patient in question is a living planet.

So what is the ailment? Some would say it is human population but I’d call that merely a side effect of the real problem. The real problem is the system which has enabled us to become so populous. The economy.

It isn’t that the economy exists that is the problem but the fact that we insist upon it constantly growing. We’ve now grown it so large that we must obtain economic contraction to get us back to sustainable levels of activity.

Our gigantic economy provides us with many wondrous things but it all comes at a price that we don’t want to pay; the health of our beloved mother.

2) Support The Immune System

The immune system of Gaia is made of the places that remain mostly wild. Defending and restoring those places should be a priority. Also part of the immune system are the activists that spread information, defend the immune system and take part in Attacking The Disease.

3) Manage The Symptoms

Honestly, Gaia can heal herself if only we’d stop causing harm. Until we can accomplish that we can use regenerative agriculture to bring not-wild-at-all type places back to life. Ecological gardening and permaculture are the tools we’d use.


 

What does human life look like on a, “Saved,” Planet?

No internet.
No personal transportation without muscle power.
No climate control.
No out-of-season produce.
No air travel.
Unreliable and intermittent access to electricity.
Much less meat.
No mass production of concrete.
Growing most of your own food and fuel.
Collecting and purifying your own water.
Managing your own waste: humanure, composting, waste water.

The First Path: Electromagnetism To Fire

Most Consonants exist on a path between the forces and the elements. Every eleven days or so I’ll be posting a new journal entry about a different path.

The following is what the wheel looks like now.
VerslingCalendar-1-WinterSolstice

It has looked like this since the Winter Solstice and will look like this until the beginning of February.

The first path is the one from Electromagnetism to Fire. From purple to red.

The name of this path is found by pronouncing the phonemes in the following order.

  • The Universe Within
    1. …or the sound of the letters, “ee.”
  •  Electromagnetism
    1. …or the sound, “oo” makes in the word, “boot.”
  • The consonant that associates Electromagnetism and Fire.
    1. …or the sound, “sh,” makes in the word, “hush.”
  • Fire
    1. …or the sound the letter, “u,” makes in the word, “put.”
  • An Ending
    1. …or the sound made by the letter, “n.”

Anyways… Externally speaking, electromagnetism is the force that organizes the elements of the world. The screen you’re reading this on and the clothes you’re probably wearing are as they are because of electromagnetism.

That is what is celebrated during this part of the year. The organizational principle of the universe. The face that the universe presents to us.

Also important is the face that you present to the universe. That is why electromagnetism is associated, in the soul, with The Persona.

This path to fire deals specifically with the things associated with the element Fire.

Fire is associated with energy, the will and the psychological function of Will and Intuition.

This path deals with how your intuitions and energies flow out through your behaviors. Also with the intuitions and energies that emerge in others due to your behavior.

 

 

The Grace of Gaia

The world doesn’t work like a machine. That is because the world isn’t a machine.

It is alive so it must be dealt with as if it were alive.

First, it has a name. That name, from my point of view, is Gaia.

Gaia has intelligence and wisdom far surpassing our own but more importantly, Gaia has a will of her own.

She can see the damage humans cause. She has tools that can be employed to stop this train wreck of a civilization.

Yet we exist. She either still has hope that we can be turned around or more likely, civilization is also a tool in her employ.

Fortunately that tool requires a few specific fuels and supply of those is running short. It is possible that the draining of said fuel supply is the reason she employed the tool of civilization in the first place.

But probably not completely. See as a conscious being she can use civilization and technical progress as a way to know herself and explore herself.

The universe does the same thing with planets like Gaia. Uses them to observe and understand its self.

So the fact that we exist leads me to believe that we actually serve some purpose. Weird. I wasn’t expecting that.

That purpose, mostly, is likely to understand as much about everything as possible until we die and our experiences are packaged up and uploaded into the collective.

I can do that.
