The Womb-world goeth! (part1)

Will you take the Red Pill or the Blue Pill?  Yes there are other pills too ..but these matter!!  What am I talking about?   If you remember the film The Matrix, you’ll know what I am talking about!  In the early moments of their encounter, Morpheus was saying to Neo in The Matrix.. take one of them and forget the truth..and go back to the false dream-like reality.. Take the other, and you wake up to reality.. and can never go back! He takes the right pill.. (never mind the colour)..accepts reality..  his body is unplugged..and rejected..ejected.. from the Matrix of fantasies..   and his real life begins (in a mixture of suffocation, loss, pain, slime, and struggles!)

Birth is hard!!

Though we are all born, and have been living in the World, so many are stuck in many `womb-worlds’ – clogged and cluttered by needs, dependencies, having signed away their freedom in order to loyally support an ideal, a country, allegiance to a flag, a football team, a tribe, an organisation, a group, a relationships, and so many other things..  !

Within the womb, the unborn child is in a state of total safety and security, but also dependency.  It has it’s every need taken care of..  warmth, food..and even a playmate!  Yes, that placenta ..the twin ..the Soul-mate of the unborn.. ! (And don’t we then spend the rest of our lives searching for that lost soul-mate..  the `someone’ who is missing!!)

But the moment the baby is born..  through the pain and pressure of birth canal..  from dark..through tunnel to a world of  sudden blinding light.  the the safe womb-world is lost!  Soul-mate is gone..  It has to go from being a quasi-reptilian, amphibian to an air-breathing being.. and wait to be fed.  No tubes..no more.. No food and oxygen on tap.. through the umbilical cord. No ready-made warmth of the womb. ..and no mother’s heart-beat ..that steady drum that has been in your ear..and permeating trough your whole body non-stop for a whole 9 months…gone!   (that’s why drum beats always affect us!!)

And the tunnel of pain and birth..  ah..you look for that too!   The passage of rejection from womb-world..  You search for it.. and hope you find it at the end of your days… at death..  the tunnell..leading to light!   Your memories got screwed up..  you equate the moment of birth into world of light..  through the mother’s vulva, as life after death..

Having been thrown out of Eden (womb), the inner child…is always looking for the pearly gates of vulva..to heaven…back to the sacred womb…!

To be born is hard..  It means you have to be 100% self-sufficient..  No twin. No food in tubes.  You have to breath! You have to open your eyes now..and look at a world of Light and dark..not just the dark of the womb!  You can not float anymore in that secure slosh of amniotic fluid!  You have to stand up..and walk!  Let your spin and muscles support..  !!

It also means you are free..  to make your choices..  to walk your path…choose the roads you can travel..  choose your destinations!

Take the Option now..  to be born!

No one likes a cry-baby (except mothering types).  No one likes a winge-bag (except the gossip-mongers and rumour-millers).

Stop looking for death..your body is dying since the moment of your birth..  but new cells are always growing to replace the dead ones..   At some point, that balance will shift.. But long before that, Live!!

Well.. I still haven’t talked about Infinity, and the quantum realities that you can manipulate..

That’s for another blog post 🙂

Happy New You!

We are the Trees (Sanctuary Earth & the Oath)

As New Year approaches, I like to share a small poem that came to me today.. and some related eco-thoughts and an oath I made almost 2 decades ago 🙂

I am the Tree (c) Mani Navasothy
I am the Tree (c) Mani Navasothy

“Here we are , You and me

 Standing in the place of Ancient Trees.

What will we add to this World, pray tell

Make it a place of Heaven ..or Hell..? “

Many already know that I am a nature-worshipping, tree-hugging, storm-chasing, mask-making magician, ritualist, Scientist, and an Environmentalist!

Years and years ago, I heard the songs from The Gaia Album by Olivia Newton-John, and it’s probably one of those things that totally consumed me – the plea of the Earth and Trees (the way she sang them)..and made me a Gaia-Guardian!

There was also the Channel 4 TV mini-series `Merlin’ almost 2 decades ago.. starring Sam Neil as Merlin, reluctant boy who is mentored by Maab, Queen of the Fairies, to be at her side..  But Merlin rebels after seeing her selfish ways, and swears not to use his magic except to help, and to oppose her!  There is a scene where he is seated in the forest floor, and makes a vow..!

So moved was I, that within moments, I had gone out to the garden, and on my Witch’s Knife (Athame), made a magical Oath to the Earth.   (This  is probably the first time I have ever shared this matter!)

Over the years, many related ecological and environmental concerns, campaigns, initiatives, plans & projects have surfaced or manifested from me..and those will continue..

So.. here as we stand at the end of 2013, what I called `The Year of the Witch’ – a difficult one personally, I think back to the one force that has always remained constant in my last 2 decades..  my love for the Earth!

I feel it every time I walk in the woods, and every time I step carefully and with reverence, into a hollow centred living Oak tree.  How often do we as humans ever go back to being literally inside another living creature-  apart from the first 9 unborn months of our lives?  Only when we are inside a living Tree!!

To me, that is returning to the womb-like sanctuary of Gaia .. mother Earth..  more so than being inside a Cave!

As 2014 dawns, I remind myself of the oath!

Bright Blessings to all
