Through the development of a self reflecting awareness of ourselves and our life processes, human beings have evolved into a highly ordered and complex expression of consciousness with its gift of creativity on the planet earth. However, this evolutionary awareness has lead us to a split consciousness, which on one hand objectifies the universe into endless patterns of isolated entities and processes, while on the other hand, awareness finds itself as the witness to the subjective experience of beingness suspended within the non-objective realms of emptiness and timelessness.
Reality is the Embodiment of Structure,
Structures are the Embodiment of Properties,
Properties are the Embodiment of Harmony,
Harmony is the Embodiment of Congruity.
Do not believe in anything because it is said . . .
Nor in the mere authority of your teachers or masters . . .
Believe when the writing, doctrine, or saying
is corroborated by your reason and consciousness.
Though the objective oriented consciousness has fed our evolutionary growth, it has also had a destructive impact on ourselves as well as the entire planet. Through a world view fed by feelings of isolation, alienation, fear, and a sense of disregard for the environment, we find our bodies, our selves, our relationships, and our planet damaged and out of harmony. As a result, we continue to consume, deplete, and pollute the earth's resources leaving her in the wasteland of our destruction. At the same time, the subjective dimension of our consciousness has become a battlefield caught in the war of intangibilities as we clash over the interpretations and values we attach to our subjective quest to define existence.
Error is created . . .
It is burnt up the moment we cease to behold it.
When we accuse or judge another,
it has the same effect on us as being judged ourselves.
Any judgment we make, no matter of whom, registers in the
heart as disruption of relationship . . .
Holistic Balance within the domain of Structural Integration is an opportunity to explore, balance, and integrate the objective and subjective dimensions of human consciousness through using the body as a forum to cultivate a deeper experiential awareness of ourselves, our relationships, and our environment. This process of inquiry is accomplished through the asking of questions that challenge a person to synthesize the results through the body, mind, heart, and soul for an integrated wholeness. By using gravity as an objective reference, and the subjective markers of "effortless balance, ease of movement, and a sense of well being", we attempt to explore the dynamic relationships between the physical, energetic, informational, and experiential realms of human consciousness.
Man thinks linearly, one thing at a time, but experiences multidimensionally. Philosophically speaking, reality seems unitary and may be delineated in a facade of objective scientific parameters. Its subjective dimension, though less ordered, is equally compelling.
Holistic balance is the exploration of unveiling the deeper qualities of balance, symmetry, and equilibrium as they apply to our somatic, intuitive, emotional, and mental envelopes of being. As these deeper qualities are integrated with the different dimensions of our beingness, we gain a more complete understanding and compassion for ourselves, our fellow beings, and the planet which supports and nourishes us. This dynamic order and balance of the whole person becomes a creative microcosmic expression of the same higher qualities found in the universe as a whole.
Evolution is matter moving towards a more effective order.
Souls, personalities, and egos are masks, spectres, concealing our unity as body. For it is as one biological species that mankind is one . . . So that to become conscious of ourselves as body is to become conscious of mankind as one.
It is from this dynamic order and balance with the body in partnership with gravity that new openings for beingness and belonging to the universe can be experienced and integrated. Holistic Balance is not about the elimination of pain or holding on to pleasure. Instead, it as a gentle remembering and cultivation of the inner self at peace with the waves of change washing over it. As we experience a deeper sense of peace within ourselves, we can then reflect the light of wisdom and love on to others. Perhaps we can even be co-creators in a new standard of evolution for humanity. A standard of humanity which not only chooses to fulfill its own desires and survival needs, but one which will also honor, feed, and nourish its supporter and partner in life and evolution, the earth.
We cannot teach people anything.
We can only help them discover it within themselves.
It is like entering a dark room . . .
The window opens and the room is flooded with light.
Colors and shapes come into being.
The window is the giver of light, but not the source.
Similarly, matter is like the dark room.
Consciousness, the window, flooding matter with
sensations and perceptions, and the supreme is the Sun,
the source of matter and light.
The window may be closed or opened,
the sun shines all the time.
It makes all the difference to the room,
but none to the Sun.
