Perpendicular

The core members of the Evolutionary Collective had a seminar today.  One of the practices we did involved one person speaking (B), one person in front (A), and two people to the sides (C and D).

When I was talking, I could feel the geometry of it all.  I was being held.  And there was a sense of precision: I experienced the angle as exactly 90°.  There was something about the up-and-down-ness and the left-and-right-ness that felt like home.

Usually I prefer the curves of nature to the straight lines of mankind:

But there’s also a beauty in the vertical.  It reminds me of uprightness, of perfect integrity, clear in the giving to others.  This integrity doesn’t wobble to the left or right.  It doesn’t choose “right action” when it’s convenient or beneficial.  It acts True North … again and again.

Also consider the horizontal.  “Equal in the eyes of God”, and may it be as true in the eyes of women and men.  All to be honoured, all to be loved.

So let us together praise the quiet geometry of life, and embrace the lines that join us.
