Neural Translation

A synthesis of experience. You are here. Your mind in melody with the surroundings.
The glimmering of light upon the surface of the sea, what a delight it is to be an observer of our own brain. This nucleus of connectivity and infinite imagination. NATURE in all of it’s beauty, within your brain.

The billions of synaptic fireworks casting far and wide. The treasures glimmering in your own night sky within the limits of your skull.
And you converge.

You translate those shimmers upon the endless sea that holds this globe in which we sail, and the imagination becomes reality.

It becomes the topic of conversation. What we see. What we hear. What we do.
We are convinced it is something beyond us, when it is ourselves and our beautiful imagination. The ability to peer into ourselves.

The very makeup of what we are. This glowing being. A multiverse of infinite display.
This is our neural experience. This is the treasure.
Life is a mindset.

In response to watching Being There, a 1979 film, and sailing. These notes I write to myself and I’ve decided to share them with those who may be interested.

Greatest of work

Throughout the day, many of us have the opportunity to receive acts of greatness. They come in many forms, and I call them lily pads.
Walking down the sidewalk, there was a construction crew working with asphalt, cement, and trucks. As I walked by, I said “hi” to one of the crew members. The response was incredible, an act of greatness.
The man looked over, smiled and gave a big “hi”. What does a big “hi” look like? I think you probably know. It goes well beyond words and is full of genuine pleasure. It is a real gift when it can be fully received.
This man was working on the road in which we drive, in the middle of his work, carrying something in his arms, and he had the ability to smile big and share a great “hi”. This is the most humble gesture one can do. It is a gift that continues to give. The message I felt from him was, “Let the greatest of work be done with a smile.”
There is a ‘lily pad workforce’ all around us. We may be at the grocery store, at a restaurant, or simply walking down the street when an individual brings great joy to us. When you can cherish these events and the individuals involved, recognize them as “lily pad hotspots of genuine love”. When in need, imagine yourself jumping from those lily pads and give yourself the genuine love you deserve. It will serve you throughout your day.
Be like a frog, bask in the sun on those lily pads, and you will find more and more.

Connective Cadence

Connective Cadence
by Greg Albritton
One step in front of the other,
and the pulse of your energy connects with this spinning globe.
As you walk, you are floating in space.
Let the connection to Earth,
be your connection to all other beings.
Feel it in your toes, in your veins,
and in your heart.
When this is felt,
you are alive and well.
Walk, and connect with the world.
