In Profundus

 

 

Into the Depths, Into the Absurd

“The only way Out is Through, the only way Through is In.”

Guests arrived with their baggage, ready for a stay at the Depths Inn.

Bellhops led them into the temperamental Elevator which transported them

down

down

down

into the Depths…to the Infinite Kitchen…diving them into the three levels of Physical, Mental and Emotional.

It was an evening of Music, boxes, keys, ABCDNA  Alphabetic Holarchy, song, nonsense, spinning, tutus, more boxes, sentences, typing, more songs, projectile peeps coming from the Ass of an Ass, squares, triangles, circles.

PHYSICAL

Notice it.  Bodies, skin, texture, breath, heartbeat, toes, sounds, sight, colors, music, boxes, flavors, odors, tones, static, satin, shapes, voices, volume, green, salty, sweet, the Five Senses.  When does a sound wave become a light wave?

Boxes, boxes and more boxes.

With the assistance of the Glittery twins Victoria and Victoria, our Host Victor guided the visitors through an evening of exploration into the levels of the Inner.

A potato gun in The Ass of an Ass is always fun…

MENTAL

Stop trying to make sense of everything!

“We can’t think outside the box when thinking IS the box.”

Absurd is when the rules appear to be broken.  Our life lessons come to us a step beyond that which we can comprehend—they often don’t make sense and seem absurd.  We must stretch to the next level to understand them.

“Authentic inner growth comes from what we do not know and unfolds in a manner we seldom foresee….it requires a voluntary stance of not knowing.”   MB

People wrote words that Victor strung into sentences…

We are boxes.

We spin in our boxes,

and then emerge.

EMOTIONAL

“This heart work isn’t about feeling better, it’s about getting better at feeling.”  MB

Feel it to integrate it.  Lost and forgotten emotions can be lassos, constricting our lives in ways we often don’t see.  Feel it to integrate it, without telling stories about it, without conditions.

And what about our own Infinite Kitchen?

We dish up for ourselves that which we need.   No on else can.

“In order to swim one takes off all one’s clothes—in order to aspire to the truth one must undress in a far more inward sense.  Divest oneself of all one’s inward clothes of Thought, Conceptions,  Selfishness, etc. before one is sufficiently naked.”

-Soren Kierkegaard
