To see the world in a grain of sand

And Heaven in a wildflower

Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand

And Eternity in an hour

-William Blake


          Many New Agers speak of the Shining Ones as the Christians await the Messiah descending down to Earth on a cloud surrounded by angels.   It's always the externalized ones that we toss our faith towards.   And what has it gotten us?   It has gotten us despots that we now call the 1% ruling the world many of them saying "God is on our side!"  

          But perhaps it is as one Buddhist scholar stated, "if you see the Buddha by the roadside, kill Him!"   Why would a Buddhist say such a thing?   Because we tend to seek externally what we have internally.   I would say the same thing about some alien coming down in a spaceship or a pissed off Christ figure flaring down from Heaven on a cloud.   Even Christ would tell you the same thing as evidenced by His statement in the New Testament to seek Truth within.   "For surely if you say that Heaven is in the sky then the birds in the air shall precede you there."

          Heaven is within and without you.

          What all these stories tell you, from the stories of creation to the destruction of the Earth is nothing more than an indicator of what is within you.   That from which you give birth is that to which you return.

Instead of taking a spaceship into space to discover Truth, discover the wonders of the cosmos within yourself.   Instead of taking a submarine into the depths of the Oceans, dive deep into your own depths to explore the wonders there.  

          In diving deep or in sailing high you will come to a place where time and space is not.   This is what the Mystics refer to as the Eternal Now.   Hence, this moment is Genesis for the void appearing at the beginning is yourself in your deepest nudity.   This nudity is you stripped of persona, body, mind, Soul, and so on (unless you call this place your Soul). It is at this point that Burl ceases to be a Burl and God ceases to be a God.   Yet, this is not death.   It is Infinite Life.          

         In the depths of the Eternal Now, or Infinite Life, diversity is unity and unity is diversity.   Human conception is a metaphor for this process.   Thus, a single egg emerges from the ovaries and finds herself surrounded by thousands of "gentlemen callers".   Yet, only one gets in at which point the egg divides in half and then into the multiplicity of cells reading this. Yet it remains one which is why we live in a uni-verse.

          This is how the Process or Way is spoken of through the creation stories told throughout the world".from science to the stories of the old wise men and women.

          It is well known by science that the male chromosome is a "Y" and the female an "X".   How did this come to be?   Let's have some fun and create a story.   The story is not just in my head.   It is based on a network of stories emerging from ancient cultures and modern science. Yet, it has been known to me even before coming into contact with the cultures and science.   How can you not know that which you are part of and speaks to the essence of your being?  

         Thus, here is my story, your story and the story of every atom, animal, and culture throughout the world.
