The other day I read a quote by Buckminster Fuller: “You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.” This was no longer just something that I thought held a truth. When I read it, it had life in it and I knew it was true because I have been experiencing the truth of it.
Over the years of writing the Creation Exercises I have seen a new model being built. When I go to write an observing on a craving that I have written, more often than not, the first thought is, ‘who wrote that?” even though in the moment of writing it I may have thought it was so mundane and not very expressive. I find as I read each recursion, the feelings and sensations that I am experiencing are exciting me and I am feeling connected to life. I am definitely not in the same space after reading them as I was before I read my craving. To me this is evidence that I am not living in the old model and trying to change it from there. I am in a new model. Because the words I chose to write are resonant to me, they are generating a shift in how I am feeling and shifting my perceptions.
As Tantra says, words live in sound, and sound carries a vibration that our bodies can resonate with. Words that are animated and alive give us access to the etheric. As we go on to write a Craving what, it is where we animate words even more and give them back their pulsing vibrations that have the power to create new models of existence. We are moving out of historic personality, old models, and restoring our linkages with the Nature of Being, or Creation, that we are a part of. We are meta-ing, including what is and going beyond into more. We are creating new matrices of reality. Even if we are only feeling connected to life for 15 minutes, it is 15 minutes that we are not in the old models. We are not fighting against the existing ones as the resonant words are shifting the vibrations of our bodies.
We are BEING the change we want to see in the world as we create new matrices that make the old one obsolete.
