The Center of the Real

In this time of storms, internal and external, we can use the metaphorical form of the storm to teach us a lesson of creation, an act which is always dependent upon and malleable to, our selves.

The storm within and without

The storm within and without

And from “The Center of the Cyclone

Lilly’s Law
“In the province of the mind, what is believed to be true is true or becomes true, within certain limits to be found experientially and experimentally. These limits are further beliefs to be transcended. In the province of the mind, there are no limits.”

The centre of the cyclone is that rising quiet central low-pressure place in which one can learn to live eternally. Just outside of this Centre is the rotating storm of one’s own ego, competing with other egos in a furious high-velocity circular dance. As one leaves centre, the roar of rotating wind deafens on more and more as one joins this dance. One’s centred thinking-feeling-being, one’s own Satoris, are in the centre only, not outside. One’s pushed-pulled driven states, one’s anti-Satori modes of functioning, one’s self-created hells, are outside the centre. In the centre of the cyclone one is off the wheel of Karma, of life, rising to join the Creators of the Universe, the Creators of us.
Here we find that we have created Them who are Us.” — John C. Lilly

The farther we get away from the calm center…the greater the illusion of the storm.
