Of course cosmic patterns don’t just come blasting to us and through us unawares, although they often need to slip past our conscious awareness. They arrive in a dance of awakening the resonant patterns we already hold. Although not always widely embraced, this is has been known throughout our human history.
Most of us are familiar with Leonardo da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man illustration from around the year 1487. We may be less familiar with what his notes suggest about the meaning of this work, that the proportional relationship of the parts reflects the universal design. He believed the workings of the human body to be an analogy for the workings of the universe, a cosmografia del minor mondo (cosmography of the microcosm).
Any even cursory exploration of the worlds spiritual traditions will yield a similar understanding. The cultural interpretations and narratives differ, but the message is the same. We hold sacred energies and patterns within us. Some are embedded in our very DNA, something I’ve written about before especially noting that in recent decades scientific proof has been established. Apparently for some that’s important. Such is the state of our current collective conscious.
The concept of sacred patterns within human energy fields can be traced back to ancient India, where the Veda books speak about prana, a universal energy that flows through all living beings and makes them alive. The images we’ve created to reflect these energies and patterns are both complex and stunningly beautiful. Yet it’s not so complex and the true beauty is in the simplicity.
The Universe has got this. Ours is to step back and let the dance begin. We know the pattern of the steps, we know the harmony…by heart and soul.
It’s that simple. Let the dance begin!!!
And yes, this is the dance of the Sacred Gatherings in Ireland. Just saying.
