DESIGNING FOR A VITAL FUTURE

SOURCING FROM THE SACRED FEMININE- COMPASSION, GENTILITY, GRACE, HUMILITY, INTUITIVE WISDOM, SPIRIT AND LOVE, SHE IS THE WAY.

This section is my gift. We, each of us women, have a gift, a perspective, a knowing. Mine is form. How do we design how we live? What do we create? What is form? How does the sacred feminine, flow through us to enable Eden? How does this nourish nature?

While others know politics, governance, leadership, farming, I know the impact of design and can see the essence and importance of this for a vital world. We cannot ignore what we make and how we live. To save and to nourish life, we will erase, from our minds, the mechanistic/ industrialized format, based on an imbalanced and hence violent and toxic habit, and choose with joy the feminine chalice as creator.

We will restore compassion bring creating a future of the hierosgamous, the sacred marriage of the masculine and feminine and Eden.

“They believe that the kingdom awaits them only in the afterlife, and so they miss the most important teaching: that we are to live on earth as it is in heaven, and create heaven here…this is done through love, and love alone….It is a gift to the children that they become Anthropos, fully realized humans, and fully awake. That they may find their authentic selves, their unique being, and simply become who they are meant to be on this earth.”

Kathleen McGowan, The Book of Love

“I think that beauty is not a luxury, but I think that it ennobles the heart and reminds us of the infinity that is within us.”

John O’ Donahue, his last interview with Krista Tippett / On Being

"The symbol of Goddess gives us permission. She teaches us to embrace the holiness of every natural, ordinary, sensual dying moment...

If such a consciousness truly is set loose in the world, nothing will be the same. It will free us to be in a sacred body, on a sacred planet, in sacred communion with all of it. It will infect the universe with holiness. We will discover the Divine deep within the earth and the cells of our bodies, and we will love her there with all our hearts and all our souls and all our minds. "

Sue Monk Kidd, The Dance of the Dissident Daughter

Those who dwell among the beauties and mysteries of the earth are never alone and weary of life.

Rachel Carson

"The well was a place of serenity, truly peaceful. A gentle spring trickled into the well, coming somewhere from deep within the Ardennes. It reminded Maureen of the holy wells in Ireland, sacred places that were devoted to goddesses for thousands of years before being converted to Christian sites of Marian devotion. To Maureen, everything about the Orval felt feminine, filled with the pure and ancient goddess-energy that sprang from the earth. Maureen was falling in love with the place and its natural beauty; it felt truly sacred. "

Kathleen McGowan, The Book of Love

 

 It is to the unseen and vital force of life that we will look, to design a future. No longer assuming arrogance and superiority, separating ourselves from the infinite essence of this place, eviscerating life. The bottom line is life itself and the manifestation of love in form- nature, us, creation. Therefore, it is our humble and reverent job to:  1. nourish and tender this extraordinary place and life  2. design for a fecund life  3. realize all form has energy and impacts all, as life is a community  4. know it is She who will source Eden.  Truth:  The intent, in the creation of any form, manifests itself in that form and all surrounding is impacted.  Creating Eden is the making of beauty to nourish all life with love, joy and compassion.  Beauty is divinity in form.  Now is the time. It is women who will design Eden and save life.  Peace, beauty, love, a vital world....Blessings

All form is energy

Life is the conscious expression of love, in form. The source is divinity and when pure in creation, it is beauty, awe, magnificence and grace.

To source Eden, what humans make and do will then originate from the divine source, nourishing all life.

Form, made from greed, convenience, self, mechanical thought, slovenliness, and money, is a toxic derivative, is anti-matter and anti-life. It's energy aborts and drains, attacks, manipulates, and denies life. Not only does it destroy nature it destroys humanity. It has a negative charge causing illness, depression, anxiety, toxicity, isolation, stunted emotions, disabled mind, obesity, and a complete violation of the spirit and the spiritual growth and principles of life, and the death of nature.

A vital future can only be sourced from Her love, and gentleness.

Conscious lifE 

 All life is conscious, probably far more than humanity. Nature communicates locally and over long distances. It responds energetically to all proximate. It acts communally. It radiates love. It is divine essence in form. When we create and act, we will to nourish nature, act in accordance with the beauty and love of the universe.

THE DIVINE FEMININE ENERGY

 It is the divine light or conscious love, in the universe, that is Her in creation. It is the source of true beauty and that which wafts awe and love into form. She is the source.  When humans step into and form things with Her, life is vital.  Painting: John Singer Sargent

SPIRITUALITY IN FORM, MYTH, AWE

INTENTION, PURPOSE, FUNCTION

 Every act of creation has intention. If, the intention is for joy, beauty, reverence, and feminine fecund, than that is what it will be. Filled with the intention, the created shines it's energy onto it's surround and on to us, as life is in community, and nourishes life.  Courtesy: Harper's Bazaar Bride

RELATIONSHIP, ORGANIZATION, SOCIAL COMMUNITY

 All form is in community with its surrounds, impacting life by its intention. Nature lives in community. So, do we.  Form intended for a purpose, vitality, and communal experience is that in form.  Courtesy: Courance.net

DESIGN, BEAUTY,MEANING, MYSTERY 

 We cannot ever live a fecund life or nourish nature without considering beauty and design. I am not talking about the cultural idealization of things, status, consumerism, trends, sprawl, shopping, etc...  We must understand beauty and design as inherent and celebrated within the natural world in pure joy. In traditional cultures the same was true. Wiser than us, creation was an awe filled gift. They understood that the act of creation is the chalice of life, an act of reverence, and humility, gratitude for this place and Her.   Courtesy: Royal Mansour

ARCHITECTURE, fORM, PROPORTIONS, SCALE, ELEMENTS

 Architecture is a creation that is profound in it's impact. Form, materials, proportions, design, all effect the health of nature, and the health of the users. Footprint, scale, organization, relationship, pattern all traditionally have meaning, purpose, and an integrity of style, designed to support and celebrate all life.  Form has energy. Space has feeling. Design is connection. Materials are visceral. Place is spiritual, mythic, playful, social, feeling, intentional, communal. Joy in form loves nature.  Architecture must be completely coherent as to it's impact on life.

FEELING, pattern

 Pattern is an ancient language. Life devoid of pattern is dull, empty, unnatural. Observe nature and ancient or traditional design. Symbolic, celebratory, referential, pattern is pleasure. Pattern is alive and communicating to all that passes and all contiguous. Life is meant to be engaging and full of surprise, delight and visual pleasure.  Courtesy: Carters.com

TEXTURE, COLOR, MATERIAL, ENGAGEMENT

 Function in deign was traditionally designed sensibly. When made to do what it is, it does not fight with our sensibility of what is real. It tells us what it is, how it works, how it functions and gives us pleasure and beauty.  A world designed for dissonance, cartoons, evisceration of natural, pastiche, fake...what does that enable?

 Nature is love, fecund, beautiful, creative. Welcome Her and nourish Her in everything you do. Give Her a chalice for design, and She will. Her joy will give you joy.  Know her. Ask her for permission and listen to her answer. She is wiser than you. Treat her with love and she will slather you with beauty.   Credit: Chateau Talaud
