Question: Do you have any idea about some of the themes you will be working on in the upcoming silent retreat?
Almine’s Answer: I can deduce just the smallest portion of what is to come by what is happening around me:
1. Something in us is trying to usurp and emulate the role of something else when it is incapable of it: The spirit. We’ve given spirit a position of entitlement it doesn’t have the right to have. We have said that its part of incorruptible matter like soul and body … it’s not. Spirit is but an expression of soul and body combined (in the past dream of duality it was a reflection).
2. Jaylene is sick in bed (neck and throat/tonsils) for the first time in many years. She has to intern in a nursing home and has run headlong into the base, self-serving, war-like nature of the unhappy people of the world. Jan and myself have sore neck issues. The neck is where the ideal of the level at which you hope people express from, and the actual level they do express from, meet. There’s something quite large to be learned about constantly being shocked (which drains energy) by the conduct of others.
3. Another theme is that the body has somehow in self-importance seen itself, together with soul, as the source of an individual’s life. The incorruptible body is designed as a tool of expression to be guided by the Eternal Source within…
I’ll of course share the work of the week when it’s completed…
