In a network: emerging, unfolding, evolving, cultivating, sauntering, sustaining, and understanding.

What is emerging, is always a function of relative alignment between essential character and evolutionary purpose.

Card Sessions: Learning into Aliveness

Understanding is the generative review.
Movement is the preferable outcome.
Tasks is how we play.
Flow is how we know.

Sauntering in Learning

Sauntering, learning into aliveness

together with the Universe, I saw

everything that is Good, moving

quietly, slowly and steadily, an

emerging, unfolding and evolving

wholeness, and the vast all that is

called Evil, hastening to meet itself,

merge and become let go and lost.

270. Roaming in Thought
“Roaming in thought over the Universe, I saw the little that is Good steadily hastening towards immortality,
And the vast all that is call’d Evil I saw hastening to merge itself and become lost and dead.”
— Walt Whitman

Acting and unfolding; unfolding and acting.

Signs and life are co-extensive and co-extending.

Futures Cones & Possibility Spaces

“Wanderer, your footsteps are the road, and nothing more; wanderer, there is no road, the road is made by walking. By walking one makes the road, and upon glancing behind one sees the path that never will be trod again. Wanderer, there is no road — Only wakes upon the sea.”
— Antonio Machado
