never mind about us
But Consider This Cow Vertebra
We live in a world created by a profound, sublime Wisdom.
I have on my shelf a cow vertebra that I found in a compost pile 43 years ago. Here it is.
What can you say about this beautiful, amazing object? It’s Cosmic. It exudes Wisdom beyond our comprehension.
Contemplating this cow vertebra quietly, with a focused, open mind, anyone with a living imagination, anyone not hopelessly mired in dead, materialistic thought, has the ability to feel that in this humble cow vertebra is expressed a living, creative Wisdom. Cultivate these delicate feelings. Feed them with meditation and contemplation. A cow vertebra could be the focus of a meditative practice for a month, or a year. Enough time to let the cosmic consciousness behind the object, become living thought and feeling within you. This is how you begin to experience the edge of the spiritual world — not contemplation of your navel, but contemplation of the world without inserting yourself into the mix.Pay attention to these fleeting feelings. These feelings are real. Cherish them. Cultivate them. Look around with an open heart and these feelings are hidden everywhere in the world around us. Pay attention.
