in the living womb

It’s funny how you can think a topic has been covered but it won’t let you rest in (living) peace. Not that I’m complaining, I adore the feelings that come from free play in thinking.

This morning I found myself contemplating the effects of atmospheric re-entry (of the space cadet kind) if our atmosphere was indeed some kind of amniotic sac. Following this line of thinking I decided that rockets & space shuttles bursting into & out of this atmosphere could be akin to amniocentesis – in which a small amount of amniotic fluid, which contains fetal tissues, is extracted from the amnion or amniotic sac surrounding a developing fetus… A needle is usually inserted through the mother’s abdominal wall through the wall of the uterus into the amniotic sac…

possible complications include infection of the amniotic sac from the needle, and failure of the puncture to heal properly, which can result in leakage or infection. Serious complications can result in miscarriage. Other possible complications include preterm labor and delivery, respiratory distress, postural deformities, fetal trauma and alloimmunisation.”

It’s truely mind-boggling how immensely unimportant our atmosphere has become, unless of course you can make money out of it

Today I have played with ideas following along in what has seemed like a trail left in the air.

I thought of how ‘sciencing‘ has bleached away the beauty & connectedness of life by translating our world into words & then storing it away in volumes of volumes.

Words have often confused me & in the mouths of those who know how to use or abuse them, they can twist & turn in all sorts of twisty-turny directions.

I thought words were meant to be a device to tell stories, so that if we cannot be somewhere or experience something then a ‘teller of tales’ could alchemically transform them into words that could be reformed within the listener. However it seems to me that sigh-ence dissected, analysed & recorded our world in such a way that the mystical fluid was syphoned off & we fell asleep. And now like Little Bo-Peep & her missing sheep, we don’t know where to find it.

Anyway let’s get on to a strange sentence.

I have long been bothered by ‘the’.

as in;

The‘ world, ‘the‘ environment, ‘the air.

This use of the word ‘the’ has to my mind, been spectacularly effective in removing us from our natural world. Imagine if you used ‘the‘ as a title for those you loved – ie. ‘the child’, ‘the friend’, ‘the parent’ – can you feel even the slightest connection?

So today I thought about ‘the air’, but instead of mounting my high horse & riding off into the sunset (actually it was probably more noonish) I decided to play with this ‘the’ .

If you take hold of the air & give it a little shake, it becomes I earth now that IS something I can relate to. This takes us beautifully back to the myths where earth & sky (Papa & Rangi in NZ mythology) were once one.

The air = I earth = the air = I earth = sky = earth = sky = earth

When we sleep at night does air become earth & earth air? Sigh-ence has told us that plants change at night & breathe as we do, that’s a pretty mighty transformation.

Getting more lyrical, let’s look at the word breath – the thing that makes us live in this world – breath – go on play with it ……..

… & what do we have here – let’s breathe in a breath & breathe out (b)earth. But that’s not all, because if you gently re-mould that re-formation & say it loud on an out-breath you get ‘b-earth’ – the sound of BIRTH.

Here we are back again at the amniotic sac of our pregnant atmosphere

In researching for the article that I thought I would be writing here, I came across an amazing tale of a sun goddess – almost all my travels through mythology have so far linked the sun with the masculine. However in playing with this pregnant earth theme, it has seemed rather wonderful to visualise a mother sun, if for no other reason than a developing child requires the heat of it’s mother’s body to grow. In my play today I have visualised our whole solar system as a gigantic goddess whose head is the sun & whose pregnant belly is our world. In this world the moon becomes the father, the one who watches over us at night.

For a long time I thought that it was the yolk of an egg that turned into a chicken, the see through stuff was just the extra bit. So I keep wondering about our air, you know that see-through stuff that’s just th-air. Everything in our life is carried out within it. Every word you speak or hear is carried in it. It’s with you every step you take. Life ceases to be in this world without it – just what exactly is it – I mean above & beyond it’s labelling as a collection of gases?

Could it be that air is alive? Is it consciousness? Does it read & hold our thoughts? Is it THE substance that transforms our thoughts into our reality?

Watching Autumn here in the Southern Hemisphere has left me wondering about the changing leaves. I recently read a factual account of plant hormones – it left me unsatisfied.

I prefer to wonder.

Do leaves change colour for the wind? Are their vibrant shades an offering of beauty (&; play) to the wind? Do these leaves tell to the wind, their stories of summer passed? When the wind swirls through the trees do the leaves jump for joy into it’s all-encompassing embrace? Do leaves call up the wind & do they wait for their breeze to give themselves up to?

Why is our air now under such a vicious & constant assault – chemtrails, HAARP, light & air pollution & never ending air wave disturbance. Is it because our world’s amniotic fluid is trying to reach us with messages of imminent birthing or perhaps we are waking up enough to realise or re-member who we are.

    Your first picture is freaky. The woman looks like she’s the mother of disease and pestilence. I’ve never thought of science that way. Science shows the beauty in things. Sure, it coaches its words in scientific jargon I can’t understand, but without science, beauty wouldn’t be given the depth it now has. It explains how our bodies; our hearts, lungs, blood works in balance. It shows how the our world, our sun, our moon, tides, works in synchronicity. Without science, we would never truly know how complicated everything is, which is why I am in awe of God because he made everything, and he made it all just right. Perfect balance.Without science, we wouldn’t even know what an eclipse was. Maybe we’d think it was some god’s way of cursing us by taking away the sun.But truly though, you write beautifully, and you show such poignant pictures, which is why I like your blog so much.

    Oddly I took a pic at Volksbank of their latest advertising.Shall send it when I upload the pics.2 posters – left hand = Space shuttle right hand = blue egg surrounded by blue rabbitsAbove then a blue octogoncheers

    Wise,What an invigorating post. Indeed, the air, or is it I-RA, I forget LOL is the container holding in all that we do. Loved the photo of the space shuttle, never thought of it like that before! Perhaps each trip through, they poke a new hole that doesn’t heal? The “junk science” or is it seance, or Mr. Gore, another nice reaffirming pic.I always enjoy your “play” you really do keep that child-like attribute inside of you don’t you? :) A fine quality my friend. I was just watching George Carlin’s last HBO special where he was talking about how “play” has been removed from children’s lives. If you get the chance to see it, it’s called “It’s Bad For You”, he really hits home on some truths as always.I like that thought of the galaxy being a pregnant female! So the Galactic Core would be what? And since we’re aligning with it, could it be a symbolic birth for the Earth now? Love the thought provoking ideas here at TLITP.The atmosphere is under attack by the PTBs and controlling Corporations. It’s like they are either trying to prevent something from happening [i.e. mass awakening?] or purposely damaging the “air” and atmosphere. Why? Junk science certainly isn’t helping things along, neither is the Green Agenda. Constant Chemtrails take place here in my area, almost daily now. Closer we get to 2012, the more the agendas seem to be picking up.I know your familiar with the Thoth legend and the Thought Sphere, which would most definitely be our atmosphere. I am wondering now what effects Gravity and electronic fields have on the air. HAARP is about creating magnetic waves, so perhaps this has some sort of effect on the air or maybe it’s altering it’s genetic makeup? Hmmmm.Thanks for the muse!Cheers!WV = FRIESS;)

    Hi JamI see we see with different eyes.Science has indeed shown us many things but I stand by what I wrote. Science with respect for life would be wonderful – so that say if one hadron collided with another hadron, we would get a world full of hydrangeas – now that would be science I could respect :)ATBHi AferrismoonYes please – I'd be over the moon to see that.It never ceases to amaze me how no matter how far away we all may be we still link up – something in the air perchance :)Cheers Hi MichaelThanks for your comments as always :)A new earth/air or at least a revitalised one is a lovely thought indeed.The playing has given me a new lease of life – when we play with absolutely anything, all kinds of wonderful insights emerge – I feel that 'answers' are like the bell at the end of playtime that calls you back to indoctrination. Maybe we are not meant to answer the 'great mysteries' – are they are merely tools for us to play with in the times in which we live to help us become all we can be & to create a more wonderful world?I think there has to be some plan afoot to 're-imprint' our air – toooooo much technology is being focused on it. I wonder what a difference we could make by sending love & thanks to our air (heir)?All the best my friend

    Great and thought-provoking post as always wise!! you really have a way with words and images and linking them together -i think that if the earth is to be thought of as a kind of biosphere-that the atomosphere -air-would indeed be the amniotic sac that enfolds the web of life-here is a link about the “Sylphs”-it is not very informative-I want to find a better one when I can-elemental air creatures i am sure you know of

  6. Devin replied:

    I am sorry wise-the link should be Sylph singular-all the best to you-and I hope you are having a lovely week!!your friend always!!

  7. wise woman replied:

    Hiya DevinThanks for the link – most interesting with talk of A.Pope of Da Vinci code fame.Even more intriguingly, a synch with the final (I think) Fair Phantom article.I hope you are very well & the summer sylphs are keeping their cool :)

    “The air = I earth = the air = I earth = sky = earth = sky = earth”? Yes.

    Thanks Sub SpecieAnother linking has recently sprung into view – Weather = ‘WE EARTH’ATB
