The houseplants have been shedding old leaves as the seasons change, giving another surface for art. These are golden pothos leaves, epiprenum aureum. Some have fluffy white mealy bugs on them.
These are part of The Universe Provides project that uses on Instagram the hashtag #reabsorbedbytheuniverseprovides
All relating that happens between a person and other people, between a person and their surroundsings, is always first modelled on the interior. The way different parts of us relate to each other, that is the way we relate to the outside world. For example, the voice of our primary care givers in early childhood becomes the voice on the inside later, with the same tone and patterns of reaction as was shown to us when we were absorbing the programming when young.
Unless we make a conscious effort to reprogram as needed, we are stuck with this programming. It really is wet-ware running software, and it really can be changed, hacked if need be!
It is the ultimate test of the golden rule - treat ourselves on the inside the way we would want our loved ones to be treated on the outside, by us or other people or in turn their own interiors. We must be kind to ourselves, respectful in the sense of affectionate attention, and we must be responsive to our needs, with kindness and genorosity. When we hear a song or an idea about relating, let's imagine - could this be a conversation between ourselves and our interior?
It is very powerful to sing a love song in front of a mirror, for example, and imagine you are singing it to your subconscious, to the forces the propel you or in turn hold you back.
How can we address the subconscious? How can we speak to it directly? With dreams and art and wistfulness, catching glances out of the corner of our eye, just barely, of the evidence of our true nature and purpose for that moment.
