 Journal quotes from students who are doing PNC online courses:


This weekend we had a wonderful blizzard!  This brought us mounds and mounds and mountains of fluffy white snow which now adorns everything in sight.  The world revolves around the snow for a moment, and I am reveling in it.  At each turn there is a new aspect of the snow which I am fortunate to experience.  The fresh blanket of white is amazing.  I can only hint at the sparkling, pristine beauty...the exquisite purity...and the enchantment.

For this activity I was attracted to a snow cap perched atop something high in the air, a narrow cap of snow perched just so, arching over the top.  I felt into the accumulation of snow, which is stacked about 12 inches high and is about 3 inches wide.  A tall, narrow hat of snow.

I felt into it, and assumed its position and activity:

- Sitting tall, way up high
- Solid, steady
- Completely still
- Cold, collection of millions of flakes which now form a solid mass, a body of snow
- Extremely stable
- Utterly relaxed.  The wind came at just the right angle and blew a bit off of an edge of the hat of snow.  The hat did not waver or flinch.
- Ready to change form: the bit of snow flew off and fell readily and happily, splattering on the ground

I sat and breathed, being these qualities, allowing my body/mind to adopt these qualities of being at a deep level.

Some things that came to mind:

This snow-hat came all of a sudden as a result of sudden environmental conditions.  It is a stable yet transient life-form.  Being both still/stable and relaxed/ready for anything is an extremely balanced state for these conditions.  In the past, I have been in suddenly arising situations in which I was not nearly as stable because I was either ready for anything but not still, or still but not relaxed and ready for anything.  Both of these states of being resulted in instability and painful results- either perilous, terrifying and painful falls, or chaotic movement making coherent organization a challenge.

But when I respond to sudden conditions by adopting a stance of still, calm, stable, cool readiness,

- I am able to attain a graceful form, to become an adornment rather than a mess.
- Knowing that this form is transient gives it spiritual depth and special value.  It becomes precious.
- Myself "as this form" has the opportunity to be a rare piece of artwork in my life, to be remembered with affection for years after the wind blows me into a different form.
- Staying still, calm, and ready, willing to be blown by the wind and frozen by the cold into flakes, I am able to settle just so atop things high above the ground.  I am able to do things which I would not be able to do under ordinary circumstances by maintaining my qualities of stillness, coolness and relaxation while the forces around me create me into a work of art.  Temporarily, my actions and nature's actions together amount to special powers which I can rejoice and delight in, and which I can experience the benefit of.

I felt joy and appreciation for all of these insights, and breathed my thanks to the snow-form, which stood tall and proud.  A gust of chill wind blew a whisp of cloud by overhead, waving in appreciation for my noticing cold, wind, relaxation, readiness to move with it.  Everything in the area began to flutter with this breeze, a dance of delight.  Meanwhile, snow stood by, still and almost blue in its snowy loveliness, seeming to settle even more deeply into itself, into stability and beauty of form, natures sculpture which now includes me.

I feel this way when I do yoga.  The Tree and Chair poses both embody some of these qualities, though both request that one stays in that stable position, while the snow is utterly relaxed and balancing.  Ballerina pose balances this way.  But this "pose" allows for the sort of relaxation in the Corpse pose (lying down).

Emotionally, I feel this way in moments of sweet appreciation for a moment that will be gone in a flash.  I just stop and give thanks for the moment, glad that it happened, not needing it to continue- indeed, not have a wish to extend it, because that would alter something essential (and this would be a loss).  Its transience makes it precious.

Outside, I've experienced this while balancing on a log, arms outstretched, resting lightly, knowing I might tip over at any moment and rest again on the forest floor.  I've experienced it sitting atop a large boulder, so that I feel like an adornment.  Was the feeling considered to be an expression of the natural world?  Yes, it was.

Can I remember any incidents, beliefs or people who who removed you from enjoying this particular natural sense?

There have been situations in which people around me (or wranglers inside me) were unwilling or afraid to adopt one or more of the qualities which combine to create this magical opportunity.

- I or they tried to make the transient moment permanent- to hold fast against the wind rather than letting a piece fly off joyfully and splatter happily over the earth.
- I or they clenched in fear at being suddenly stacked high in the air.  When it was me, I clenched.  When it was they, they pushed me to stay still or cautioned me against my attraction, mistrusting it and pressuring (or begging or manipulating or even asking) me to abandon my attraction for theirs.  Being clenched, the whole thing destabilized and toppled.  The work of art requires readiness for anything, for change, for transformation into something else.
- I responded (or they responded to me) with heat and activity instead of calm, stillness and cool.  The whole thing blew back out into the air and fluttered down in a million pieces.

Are these "wronglers" alive in me?   I suppose to some degree, as this particular combination is one which I will be forever practicing.  I am not yet a master.  But I am better and better at catching myself and cultivating the magical combination.  I have many, many transient moment jewels and feats of magic behind me, and I know how to do it (or to allow it), so I imagine they will continue to be created so long as I live.  They are wonderful!

If I saw someone enjoying this sense, it would bring to mind the works of art which are nature....cathedrals of stone, kaleidoscope skies, looking-glass pools, lacy, beaded flowers, and those unnameable moments of love and meaning created when two living, loving beings grow a gossamer, golden webstring between them.

Activity 9:

My favorite plant, animal, mineral or sensation while doing this activity is the tall, narrow snow-cap.  I like it because it is cool, still, balanced, willing to rest tall and high, at the same time relaxed and receptive to the forces of nature, ready to be swept away into another form the next moment.  It is a transient work of art.  Being this way, simple snowflakes become a strong, if momentary work of art whose beauty is carried forward into the next form.

I like myself because I am cool, still, balanced, willing to rest tall and high.  At the same time, I am relaxed and receptive to the forces of nature, ready to be swept away to a new way of being at any moment.  I am a transient work of art.  Though I am just an ordinary person, these qualities enable me and my life to momentarily become a work of art.  The beauty of this transient, artful form is then carried forward into my future forms.

Matching myself with a person I know:

I feel attracted to match myself with my sister Ellie.  Attractions to her that I recognize in myself:  we are both sweet-natured, nature-loving, fun-loving, intelligent, forgiving, curious, family-oriented, courageous, articulate, empowering, artistic, down-home, and goofy.

2. The three most important things you learned from this chapter and activity. Quote parts of the reading you feel are important and explain why.

  a.  Matching an attraction in nature helps me "get" a way of being holistically "in my body" so that I understand at the physical, emotional, spiritual and social levels.  "You can find that truth by trusting your experience- what you sense and feel- while doing these activities."

  b.  The insights help me understand and accept the past and empower me for the future.  "The activity is similar to analytical therapies.  It helps differentiate stories from the past from opportunities in the present, including the opportunity to psychologically change past stories."

  c.  Matching my attractions helps me to support and energize the qualities and skills that I value most.  By nature, experiencing attractions is empowering.  It enables me to locate these strengths in myself and bring them to the fore..  "Recognize that if you sense them, they are also some part of you."

My experience in nature shows me that I am a person who gets good feelings from reveling in works of art that are only intended to last for a moment,from still, tall collections of sparkling snowflakes. I get good feelings from honoring the attractions in myself and others. This enhances my trustfulness of nature's essence.  It identifies the part of me who already trusts the wisdom of my visceral senses. Matching to sensory attractions is an effective vehicle for becoming a moment-by-moment work of art.

 This could be helpful for someone who feels very disconnected or alienated from others. It enables a person to quickly identify a way to turn any experience into a work of art.

"Human behavior is rooted most deeply in nature's intentions and desire. The rhythms of nature underlie all of human interaction: religious traditions, economic systems, cultural and political organization. When these human forms betray the natural psychic pulse, people and societies get sick, nature is exploited and entire species are threatened."

-Stephen Aizenstat

 


In industrial society our excessively nature-separated lives mold us to betray the natural psychic pulse. We learn to block from our thinking over 98 percent of the wise sensory callings and fulfillments we normally share with natural systems and their eons of experience. Our subconscious hurt and frustration from the severed disconnection of these senses underlies our greatest troubles.

-Michael J. Cohen
