Poem: Playful Adulthood

 

Magic and
miracles,
flow and
synchronicity,

open mind
sees it all

playful
adulthood
lifts
the mood

the soul plan
is afoot

Article Link: Quantum Physics – The Physics of Dreaming by Paul Levy

 

“The world of the very small is co-extensive with the world at large. Quantum theory applies to big things as well as small; we can’t get to first base without quantum theory in dealing with such large-scale objects as stars, for example. And yet, our everyday world, with its chairs, trees and people, seems, at least to all appearances, not to be quantum at all, but quite real, and solid, very much in alignment with classical physics’ version of reality, with its one-at-a-time sequence of definite actualities. When we throw a baseball, for example, it has a continuous trajectory that can be measured. This is very different from probabilistic quantum entities, which are discontinuous, can take multiple routes to get somewhere at the same time and get to where they’re going in no time at all. And yet, quantum theory tells us that baseballs are quantum objects, too─they have a cloud of probability which collapses from uncertainty to certainty, but their quantum fluctuations are so microscopically small that they are entirely below the threshold of observation. The elementary particle and the baseball differ only in scale, not in principle.  [76] ”   You can read the article here: http://www.awakeninthedream.com/quantum-physics-the-physics-of-dreaming/#sec

Poem: Rational Magic

 

these fears
are irrational
I re-realize
in an objective
tone of voice;
they don´t relate
to anything
in this new phase

well done past
gone
a long
time ago

I´m happy
to have
use
for the
word
irrational,
a surprising
magic
word
to my shadow

Meditation

 

Meditation is not evasion; it is a serene encounter with reality. – Thích Nhất Hạnh

♦♦♦

Thirty spokes of a wheel all join at a common hub
yet only the hole at the centre
allows the wheel to spin
Clay is moulded to form a cup
yet only the space within
allows the cup to hold water
Walls are joined to make a room
yet only by cutting out a door and a window
can one enter the room and live there

Thus, when a thing has existence alone
it is mere dead weight
Only when it has wu, does it have life

Verse 11, Tao Te Ching, Lao Tzu

(Wu is nothingness, emptiness, nonexistence)
