Matter is energy– energy held together by the laws of balance and harmony. Let’s face it, nature is beautiful. Take the elegant bodies of animals, the exquisite and delicate nature of butterflies, insects that if you blink, you miss them. We could go on and on, discussing sunsets, oceans, rivers, mountains. Just to focus on the human body alone what a masterful and incredible piece of work. Our minds are at an absolute loss to even begin to imagine constructing such a beautifully balanced and mysterious thing.
Love is responsible. Sensitivity and care on an unfathomable level, is responsible for this beauty. Without this careful attention to design, structure, and balance, energy would have no place. It would be unable to harness, and express. Matter is energy held in balance FOR something. When I was a kid, I would spend a good deal of time playing with blocks, carefully laying down the subsequent layers to try and build as high as I could. It was the art of balancing. Each subsequent layer had to be stable before you could add another. It either held strong, or it didn’t. It was a simple lesson in a few natural laws.
Imagine a universe with stars, planets, galaxies– all that there is– everything in balance with everything else. You would have to start with balance. Just like playing with building blocks on a table, the universe we speak of would have to observe the obvious laws of balance at the outset. Every system in the natural world reflects these laws of balance. Look at the miraculous way that our bodies digest food, breathe, pump blood, give birth, and on and on.
This level of collaboration can only occur because it matters to those involved. It is due to the power of love. The love I speak of is the kind of love that must begin with a deep sense or clarity that we are all equals. When I refer to "those involved" it is the many separate entities who are ultimately in fact, one. It is this oneship, or clarity that we are all in this together, that is much more difficult to deny, when you are a molecule or an atom. You are basically flying around in absolute glee eager to be a part of anything, and so with all the other atoms, you achieve kind of balance, while continuing to do your atomic thing.
It may be more difficult to find this level of cooperation in human events, with human beings. There will likely be an imposed hierarchy that would make this sort of thing next to impossible– due to egos. However, in the subatomic, atomic, molecular, mineral, plant and animal kingdoms, it is more the rule than the exception. It is not anything that any of these beings or entities ever discussed. There was no power meeting, or conference room get together. It all happens by itself, out of a sense of free expression and the natural limits of behavior and capability. Everything is put in its place by their prevailing needs– needs which can only be filled by their surroundings (collaborators).
As we delve deeply into the most basic building blocks of nature, we see a harmony worked out between the smallest particles of energy. Behaviorally, they are in balance and achieve a stability that allows for what we know to be the rest of the story evolutionarily. It is essential that we grasp a few basic understandings about matter before we apply it to our healing work on ourselves and others. Balance cannot be known before it occurs. Our minds cannot do it. Nature does it by itself. It MUST be free to act. This means NOT using the mind, but allowing it to happen by making room for it, by silencing the mind, and being open to intuition or a feeling of one’s way.
Any stubborn ideas about HOW, WHAT, WHERE, WHEN and WHO, will only get in the way. As crazy as it seems, we must liken ourselves to the little particle that knows nothing but the sense of wanting to be involved and express itself. The rest is unknown. Be willing to love and find harmony with every one of your surroundings. This can be practiced by the message you send your fellow beings, and this means all things. ALL are equal.
Meditating and spending time in copper pyramids (as a perfect form, similar to gemstones and crystals in the mineral kingdom) challenges us as creators (creatures) to recover the energetic integrity that IS our full expression. The challenge these pyramids make to our systems is to trust in our organic impulses. In this way we manage to drop our fears in exchange for what is meant to be our inherent expression as an organism, in regard to body (matter), mind (consciousness) and spirit (expression of energy). This is how copper pyramids work to help us heal and recover our true nature (way of behaving).
Copper pyramids are the catalyst. The pyramid is only the trigger, reminding us again and again like a tuning fork. Whether we listen is up to us. To engage in this process of healing means looking at fear, denial, pain, etc., and processing it step by step. Entering into and moving through each challenge can lead us to recover wonder (mind), vitality (spirit) and our love of life, an appreciation for what really matters, and bodily integrity and balance (body).
