It's Always Autumn Somewhere on Earth


The Perceiver in me
is weary of old conversations made of concepts
and brilliant insights that fortify or blame;
Opinions are boring, problems laughable,
kneejerk reactions so unnecessary.
The story does not want to be told again.
It is exhausted and grey,
words will not clump or rise to be animated,
the puppet has died.
These eyes and ears turn in
to the peace that dwells in cells.

A preference exerts itself:
wide-open awareness like vast virgin landscapes,
puppy love, naïve exploration of the small and the ordinary.
The Perceiver ignores the things of the world
to notice the things of the world.

The leaves are yellow and falling from the elm
early this year,
Their falling brings the silence,
reminds me that I crave calm low light.
Apricot glow.
The minimal.
The economical.
Simple presence.
And I can rest.
I can love.
I can live on love alone
and breathe
and be

and that's the magic carpet
I shall ride out on.

11:11 — A Possible Interpretation

Many people have been seeing 11s on the digital clock dial, especially 11:11. In fact, there are websites devoted to it! And there are many ideas about why we are seeing this collectively now.

My intuitive hit on 11:11 (or in with caplock on: !!:!!) is that it is a symbol for as above, so below; that there is a twinning between the nonphysical and physical worlds, that we are having the revelation now that the worlds aren't separate but mirror each other exactly, in fact, do the same thing in any moment but at different frequencies. 

11 as I see it in numerology is the nonphysical version of the 2, which operates in the physical world as the symbol of duality and relationship. 11 connects us to the nonphysical and allows us to know ourselves at higher frequencies, to shift revelations from those worlds into this physical world. It takes us to the extremes of any opposition, exploring the dark and the light. 

The two 1s on each side of the imaginary barrier (the colon), to me, represent the parallelism, and thus commonality, between individuals, as 1 is about individuality. On earth we are twins with each other individual (there is brotherhood/sisterhood) and in spirit we are all twins, or part of the collective consciousness. I feel 11:11 is representative of a stage of consciousness on the way to understanding unity.
