    Rory O'Connor : I can't do this anymore

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ne0METPmDj4


    Rory O’Connor ‘I Can’t Do This Anymore’ Interview by Iain McNay

    Rory was the youngest of 8 children and raised in the Catholic tradition.
    ‘ I remember looking at my parent’s life and thinking that it seemed like a kind of hell, a trap that they 'believed' they could not get out of. From where I stood, frustration seemed to dog their lives.’
    He became a drummer in a heavy metal band but became very depressed and stopped playing music. But he kept searching, reading, started TM, and openings started to appear.
    ‘At some point in my late thirties I had a real moment of clarity, a paradigm shift. I realised that what I understood of quantum science and the eastern traditions was essentially describing the same thing ie. the concept of everything appearing out of nothing through the observer. From then on 'reality' seemed a lot less 'solid'.
    ‘Concurrent events in my personal life had also conspired to create an actual 'breakdown' moment where the pain of trying to keep everything 'together' caused me to smash the kitchen table to pieces with my bare hands only to find myself sitting in the rubble saying repeatedly "I can't do this anymore". It may not sound like it but this 'moment of surrender' was the best thing that ever happened to me.’
    ‘When you know that you know nothing then you are free to consider anything and believe nothing. It doesn't matter how you describe it or label it life simply is what it is and the description/label is meaningless.’

    A NEW HOPE

    Don't live in hope. Live in presence.

    Hope is future. Presence is alive, now.

    And in presence, a new hope may rise,
    born of curiosity, courage, and truth,
    and the breaking of the dawn.

    Thank you so much, mudra, for this tubby. It's such a treat to find this point of view on the role of the body.
    I consider myself very fortunate to have studied many years in the School for Intuitive Development, including the
    awareness of the body and the "language" it speaks. The more my being reaches for distant stars, the more my body
    needs to be grounded here, that is as long as my destiny is joined with planet Earth's destiny, which we both agree,
    wholeheartedly. I used to see the destiny of my life in front of God's throne, dancing in white robes, as an obligation
    to manifest as quick as possible... as a minister's daughter, never finding God inside the church. How far I've come
    removed from that as a duty, just free and happy dancing on African rythms often, in my living room on planet Earth

    Thomas Berry:
    The Great Story

    This is one of a number of interviews that accompany the indispensable film of the same name. It has been reproduced here by permission of Bullfrog Films, distributors of the DVD of the film and its accompanying interviews.

    "Thomas Berry puts forth the grandest story ever told...Beyond all my experiences with universities, literature & wisdom traditions, Thomas Berry's work has opened the door for me to the most thrilling, over-arching, inclusivist, all-embracing & empowering perspective I have ever encountered. Thomas may well be the most important guide we have, for the future of humanity in concert with the community of life on Earth."

    The Great Story

    In his major works The Dream of the Earth, The Universe Story, and The Great Work, cultural historian Thomas Berry (d.2009) describes how Western religion and culture have created an estranged, unsustainable relationship between humans and the Earth. This dysfunctional relationship is reflected by our economic model of limitless growth and in the technological “wonderworld” created and sustained by our electronic media and corporate advertising.

    To heal this condition, which he described as a "distortion of the Sacred", Berry described  a new cosmology and mythic consciousness (Great Story), capable of reuniting humans with the creative energy of the Universe. He sought to re-unify science and religion through an "Earth Spirituality" that affirms the spiritual potential of matter, fundamentally changing how we experience the material and living worlds.

    Berry considered the Earth itself to be endowed with innate spirituality, since it is the maternal and nurturing principle that is the actual source of our existence and spirituality. and not merely an object of spiritual regard. Speaking with the authority of an accomplished Christian monk, theologian and mystic, he traced how Christianity came to be redemption-based, rather than a creation spirituality; how Western science and religion came to lead separate existences; and how the social impacts of religion and ethics thereby became marginalized. He observed:

    The central pathology that has led to the termination of the Cenozoic Era is the radical discontinuity between the human and the nonhuman.

    Yet our science has recently provided a comprehensive "new revelation" through its discoveries of the precise origins of the Universe, and the evolutionary biology of human nature. Therein we can discover a common ground for science and religion, a new spirituality "grounded deeply in the numinous dimension of an emergent Universe."

    The myth that drives the goal of human domination of the Earth is a secular, technological version of the old millennial dream of Christianity, where nature is bent to every human whim. As it rapidly turns our home planet into a wasteland, it threatens even our own survival. Now we need the Logos or reason of science to be balanced with a healing Mythos, a Story embodying poetic and spiritual appreciation of the Earth.

    Berry’s life work eloquently communicates the immanence of the Sacred in the world. He considered that our species is at a crucial evolutionary moment of transition. We need a new spiritual vision to carry us forward from the end of the Cenozoic geological era, for our future to be possible.

    The Healing Power of Listening in Stillness

    People have always experienced pain, and in the vast span of time before the colonial expansion of western culture, indigenous cultures weren’t without their methods of dealing with trauma.

    For centuries we’ve largely ignored the wisdom of those among us who are still directly connected to ancestral ways of knowledge. As our modern lifestyle collides with the fact that our Earth is not capable of supporting our current way of life, we are finally starting to look to those who once lived in a state of indefinite sustainability and abundance, for a way forward.

    “In order to have sustainable community you have to make sure the people are sustainable. This means healing trauma.”
    – Jarmbi Githabul, Ngarakwal / Githabul Custodian

    What is Dadirri?

    “Dadirri is inner, deep listening and quiet, still awareness. Dadirri recognises the deep spring that is inside us. We call on it and it calls to us. This is the gift that Australia is thirsting for. It is something like what you call ‘contemplation’.”
    – Miriam-Rose Ungunmerr-Baumann, Ngangiwumirr Elder

    When Miriam-Rose Ungunmerr-Baumann speaks of dadirri, she speaks of a form of deep, contemplative listening that is nothing less than a personal spiritual practice. This type of listening in stillness is widely known all across the Australian continent, in many language groups under many names. “When I experience dadirri, I am made whole again.” Miriam describes. “I can sit on the riverbank or walk through the trees; even if someone close to me has passed away, I can find my peace in this silent awareness. There is no need of words. A big part of dadirri is listening.”

    According to Ungunmerr-Baumann the act of learning, from a very young age, is all about waiting and listening; not asking questions. In a culture where everyone is so well practiced at listening that it becomes a spiritual art, it makes sense that when trauma occurred the people would come together and deeply listen to each other. For this reason dadirri also refers to a form of group trauma healing that brings the deep presence found in the solo practice of dadirri to a group setting, as discussed in Prof. Judy Atkinson’s book Trauma Trails, Recreating Songlines. The essence of dadirri, in this wider context, is the creation of a space of deep contemplative, heart based listening where stories of trauma and pain can be shared and witnessed with loving acceptance.

    In my own experiences with original Australians who are deeply connected to country, I have felt that they are so grounded it’s almost as if the land itself and the ancestors of the land, are listening to you through them.

    “Healing country heals ourselves, and healing ourselves heals country.”
    – Prof. Judy Atkinson – Jiman / Bunjalung woman, author of Trauma Trails, Recreating Songlines

    For one moment, is it possible to really notice where we actually are…the sights, sounds, smells…the sensations in the body…the breathing…the shapes and colors around us? Is it possible to behold all of this without labeling it, judging it, or trying to get something out of it? Thoughts (including labels and judgments) will pop up, but they don’t need to be followed or believed, nor do we need to go to war with them and try to suppress them. They too are a movement of this undivided life energy. But instead of getting caught up in the plotline of these mental movies and virtual realities, see if it is possible whenever thinking is noticed to simply return to nonconceptual pure sensation—hearing, seeing, breathing, sensing, perceiving, awaring—just this, as it is. The sound of traffic, the cheep of a bird, the clouds in the sky, the sunlight on a piece of trash in the gutter. How is it to simply be, to be just this moment, exactly as it is?

    ..."They say that everything happens to us for a reason, so on our next ride on the up-wave of life, one should look back and see how all these pieces fit together. Just as they always do on this ever unfolding journey of life, the path to the higher levels will unfold when our heart is open and ready, for clinging yet still to the past only keeps our eye focused on the rear-view mirror. Whereas the fearless warrior we all possess within, just needs to go with the flow without judgment, for the future will unfold and bring us magic to fill the emptiness and void that is within our heart and spirit. And like in the symbol of ouroboros, the dragon snake eats its own tail, as it comes full circle and becomes complete, just as our consciousness evolves in cycles of life after life in a endless series. They say sometimes we have to go out of our minds to return to our senses, in order to remember what we have long but since forgotten, that we are always on the path that leads to our expansion or decay, and we are always getting the lessons we need, now it is up to us if we learn from the conflicts and transcend our spirit to the next level!"

    Kensho

    narrated by Alan Watts


    Eastern mysticism has long held the perspective that our physical reality is really the maya of illusion. First century buddhist philospoher-poet Aśvaghoṣa put it that ‘all phenomena in the world are nothing but the illusory manifestation of the mind and have no reality of their own, while 13th century sufi mystic Rumi suggested that ‘this place is a dream. Only a sleeper considers it real.’ In the 1960s a wave of eastern mysticism crashed on the shore of western culture thanks to public figures like Alan Watts . Perhaps out of everyone, his is the most captivatingly poetic rendering of the subject. For the full experience, take a look at this beautiful new short film from Aaron Paradox.
