"The Meeting Place"
B Y D A N I E L J A C O B
One of the most exciting elements in the life of an awakening Star Kid today is a reality construct I call "The Meeting Place."
The Meeting Place is equally accessible via the dream state or focused meditation. The choice of one modality over the other is usually dictated by the maturity and consciousness of the person or persons making the journey. It is a realm of experience where humankind is allowed to "try on" all types of personal laws and reality systems, just for the purpose of knowing they exist.
In The Meeting Place, the sky can be translucent, rainbow colors. I visited one of these realities the other night. It reminded me of a Beatles Video, back in the 60s, created to the tune of "Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds." Ah yes.....remember those words?
"Picture Yourself in a boat on a river,
With tangerine trees, and marmalade skies...
Somebody calls you, you answer quite slowly
A Girl with kaleidoscope eyes......"
As these dynamic and expansive energies continue to be added into our physical space, the minds and hearts of humanity are in desperate need of "safe spaces" where these differences can be noticed and explored WITHOUT tearing apart the "basics" of 3D as we have come to know it.
The pervasive sense of boredom and tiredness with "ordinary" reality is a by-product of these energy infusions. We are truly hungering and thirsting after non-ordinary reality---a fact that is being reflected heavily in worlds of art, literature, fashion, and culture......especially urban culture.
DOWN THE RABBIT HOLE!
If I had a world of my own,
everything would be nonsense.
Nothing would be what it is,
because everything would be what it isn't.
And contrary wise, what is, it wouldn't be.
And what it wouldn't be, it would.

Back in the sixties, we had Peggy Lee to sing to us. Her great anthem to 3D and Humanity back then was "Is That All There Is?" Needless to say, it really struck a chord with us, especially because Peggy Lee was an singing icon from an earlier age. Nowadays, our Children of the New Art are PROVING to themselves that there is SO MUCH MORE TO LIFE than meets the eye or the HAND, for that matter!"A painter paints pictures on canvas. But musicians paint their pictures on silence."
- Leopold Stokowski
Many of these images have been borrowed from my friend Jaimy, who is also known as "Art n' Soul" on the My Space system. Her "Meeting Place" over there is a virtual sketch pad for a furtive Imagination. I encourage you all to go have a look if her work has touched you.

There are many folks in the New Thought C
There are many folks in the New Thought Community who have had formal artistic training. But not all cutting edge art is the product of training or knowledge of current trends. Each of us is his or her "Master Craftsman" for gathering of images, sounds, tastes, and icons that will help us gain entry into our very own "Holy of Holies" inside. Is it any wonder that TV reality shows are on the rise at this time? Real life is often SO MUCH MORE COMPELLING than fiction.
