Inside the Chrysalis

October 18, 2021

As is often the case, the Universe sends us just what we need at just the right time.

After spending the summer in northern Minnesota at a water protector camp, doing my best to stand up to protect not just the water, but air, trees, birds, fish, animals, people, and insects from a tar sands pipeline being rushed through, I came home exhausted. The gap between the ideology of hope and the reality of what is happening in the world was just too big for my heart to bear.

I fell into a kind of depression, from which, I must admit, I have not fully recovered. The only thing that gave me hope and vision was when I was doing readings. As always, Einstein and the Party do not fail to provide such insights that boost my spirits and calm my mind.

Lately, however, I’m still struggling to find those visions on my own. That was when my friend sent me this amazing clip from Dr. Bruce Lipton with an uplifting metaphor for where we humans are right now.

A chrysalis is a protected state of development: a place or a period of time in which someone or something is quietly, safely, perhaps invisibly, transforming into its real, final, fully-developed self. This makes sense to my logical mind that is striving to find answers to the questions that plague me lately.

I remember, too, my friend Lily’s constant reminder that we are “sowers of seeds” and may not be around to see the growth of those seeds. This is what every generation of humans has experienced, as we come and go into different lifetimes, with different DNA spacetime bodies.

So as you move through your world, keep in mind that evolution is about adaptation. Sometimes that means being confined to the chrysalis of a future state. Inside that protection, we have the power to change our perspective and shift to a longer vision. See the seeds you are planting today as those beautiful future flowers, or a fully-formed butterfly. From there, gratitude can flow again and we can re-box our compass to align with Compassion.

Faces of Faith, Tales of Transformation

As a part of St. John’s UCC Madeline Island’s September Series “Faces of Faith, Tales of Transformation” I did a talk about my mother. Lorna died in April 2018, but her life and death are the epitome of faith, perseverance, and self-transformation. I hope her story inspires you to remember that sometimes, when things appear to be the worst, they could be on their way to being the best.

Keep the faith!

 Transcending Death

9 AM Central
Zoom Link

Since we began the Transcendence series in January, the world has undergone an unfathomable transformation. Throughout those changes, our exploration of transcendence has taken us into pragmatic, creative, inspiring, sacred, physical and emotional landscapes in search of how to live in the world but not of it. I speak for many of you, I am sure, when I say, I am not the same person I was when we started. If anything, I feel I am more myself than I’ve ever been before.

As the old structures of government and society unravel at an unprecedented pace, so are individuals and their relationship to themselves. Everything feels to be coming apart at the seams, including our mental, spiritual and emotional health. But these failing internal structures are giving us a chance to build new, self-loving, sustainable, community-oriented selves to then mirror into the world.

Humans, without a perceivable future, are coming face to face with themselves on every level. The good, the bad, the ugly—all out in the open to be witnessed and transformed. Without being able to see a predictable future, it surely does feel like death, the moment when we have to let go of it all and go on to the next mysterious level of consciousness.

Join us Saturday as we explore how to commit to that mystery and gain a new sense of self, navigating together through this enormous change.

Plenty of time for Q&A. All are welcome.

Russell Einstein Manifesto

On this day in 1955, Bertrand Russell, et al held a press conference in London. They originally reserved the lower, smaller room at Caxton Hall, a local community center. But as people started to arrive, Russell moved upstairs to the much bigger room to accommodate the press who were coming from around the world.

The Russell Einstein Manifesto was Albert Einstein’s last great public message to the world. He signed it nine days before he died. These were his last burning questions that he took with him to the grave.

Another of the authors was Joseph Rotblat, a nuclear physicist who worked on the Manhattan project until asking to leave on the grounds of personal conscience. Rotblat believed that scientists should always be concerned with the ethical consequences of their work and became one of the most prominent critics of the nuclear arms race, dedicating his life to campaigning against nuclear weapons.

Although the Russell–Einstein Manifesto was launched in July 1955, this was the result of several months of discussion between those who became the signatories. These visionaries’ words about the dangers of weapons of mass destruction read today with even greater depth than when they were first voiced in 1955. All the while we have moved closer to deciding which way we will go.

What can us ordinary people do? Make choices as we are being advised: find creative solutions to our conflicts without fighting or war. Become that change that we want so badly for the world. Be an inner and outer peacemaker. Make decisions to work for the good of the whole. We must get to know ourselves and where we may inadvertently be contributing to the conflicts around us.

Then get to work in one of the many arenas that are bringing together concerned citizens to be the change. Below is some information on “presidential first use of nuclear weapons,” including a short video on topic of  Presidential First Use of Nuclear Weapons. Is it Legal? Is it Constitutional? Is it Just?” from a conference held November 4, 2017 at Harvard University.

You can also sign on to a movement directed at Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden asking him to pull us back from the brink of nuclear war.

The longer I work with my Imagined Einstein and this Party, the more I am convinced that they really have reached us from beyond the grave and are working with us for world peace, one person at a time, starting with ourselves. It is an honor to serve.
