Hi everybody and Happy Holidays. The synchronicity of this lecture is interesting.
A quote from Janet
“Very Easter! Logos made flesh. Body higher than Logos.
"The amount of creation that it takes to be a human body in the flesh is one of the pinnacles of creative energy...The essence of the creative is embodiment....Otherwise Christ would not have come as a man but as a concept."
Anybody see any Passover synchronicities?
Also the fact that we are back in the desert with the Anchorite may explain why the postings have ‘dried up’. :) (Not referring to Ric and Linda of course, thank you for your thoughtful discussions)
Of course Janet, Bonnie, Machiel, Robbie and I are busy trying to make ‘meaning’ of it and how we can encourage more activity.
One thing we are concerned about is if everyone is getting the posting notifications in your emails? It seems in order for that to happen you need to choose to ‘Follow’ for each new discussion underneath the reply box under the first posting of the discussion. (Should be this one for Lecture 6)
OK, enough of my worries let’s start talking about this Lectures very full content as Jung and we reenter the desert in a fuller way, a more embodied way, where we notice more detail, more feeling and are allowing a sense of wonder and surprise.
OK, so as I’m now writing this and trying to allow that to happen for me I remember a new, surprising feeling I had today in a writing as healing workshop. As Jung re- enters the desert by way of grief, I revisited the experience of trauma I shared with you about my first love Doug last session. Today as I wrote about it I got in touch with Doug’s possible experience of the break up and realized it must have been very hard for him as well. As I did that my heart broke open with a new pain, not the pain I have been re-living as my story of how much he had hurt me for the last 40 years, but his pain! It must have been very painful for him as well, and my love for him deepened as I felt so bad for the boy I loved so deeply being in pain. I was definitely astonished at this new level of grief. Wow, I actually feel for someone else!! (Not my strong suit usually) Perhaps an “unlearning” on my part as well as an example of me coming out of my “desert” a bit by engaging with Doug’s feelings.
Well there is another personal revelation of Chris’s and I wonder/worry that that may be putting some of you off from posting, perhaps thinking that is what we expect from you. You are more than welcome to of course, and , most certainly not a requirement!
So much more in this segment, love to hear your thoughts and feelings.
Also please don’t let the idea you have to create some masterpiece to post hold you back,
one sentence or even fragments work!!
