Great Jack!! Hi Lawrence, et al...
I might add to this interesting discussion...
I think if we look around us we will observe that the patterns are already
catalogued all around us..everywhere in nature! All that is in physical form
is based on patterns. It was created from pure quantum, energy, creative
source impulse and precipitated through a pattern into more specified
patterns to become matter.
Many of the patterns upon which current/old paradigm is based, are patterns
that no longer are carrying vital life force energy..
Our way is towards that which sustains, even perpetuates life.
Vital life force energy is necessary to sustainable systems.
What does it mean to have a sustainable life in these times of great change?
It IS all changing...even more reason for our 'designing' to be based upon
When we follow the course of life force energy and let IT lead us forward,
I suspect we will have great rewards.
When the passion of us ignites, there the lifeforce energy emerges and is
there to guide us to more truth..
In living more truth, new patterning can take place, more vital life force
energy is available to us.
SO the 'rutted' patterns Jack speaks of fall away in favor of a new
patterning based on following the newly awakening energy flows.
The natural patterns can be arranged in any number of ways.
We are designer of our own pattern.
Observing the natural patterns and learning from them their own specific
frequency..much will be understood.
Restore the original pattern.
Ponder what that is and the energy of that will lead you.
