Plum blossoms, Russell Farm Spring 2016



Now, myself, i did not expect, nor think it would happen, that the plum trees planted last fall would start right out this year with blossoms …  before they even grew any leaves.

They surprised me surprise

if there are blossoms, will they fruit this year ?

the real surprise was that the blossoms came right out of the stems first.   now somebody who knows these trees would not have been surprised … but me i have no such experience … or even any such thoughts of them … it was all unknown to me selfie, it was otherness to me … until i encountered it.  these kind of surprises are what contradicts for me,  nathan’s selfie centric model of what creates.  i will not take credit for these plum blossoms … for them i credit the magic of  the firmament.

I am surprised all the time. I love surprise and enjoy discovery. Whatever model you think I use, it must not be the model I do use.

well of course you get surprised, after all you are a human being.   the question is what do you credit for creating that which surprised you ?  you seem to talk as if you credit your own thought.   the question is what came first … what created what … was it you thought? … or was it something else even outside of yourself. 
Well, first (lol first) … you are starting out with an assumption of linear time, which is not the real case of things, only how we set up to experience things.

But just for the sake of argument, even with linear time there are a multitude of opportunities for surprise. My conscious attention is very tiny, just a little point of experience moving from frame to frame in the infinite multiverse. Knowing that I create my experience does not give me instant access to all that I create, only moment by moment access and even that only from my current state of being, point of perspective. Just because a cherry blossom grows within the energy field that is my being does not mean I have conscious awareness of it happening until my attention is upon it … and delighting in its discovery.

The cy thought and attention thought in CyberMind were not the whole computer or all the programs loaded, they were only single registers changing moment by moment focused on singular spots in memory or doing calculations one step at a time … so is our awareness to all that we are which is the whole program, the whole reality.
