We are pushed to align straight, persuaded from the spiral.
One of the greatest deceptions of man is that we are taught by society to be linear when nothing organic truly is; we are cyclical beings by nature. We are instructed to form opinions based only by logic rather than by heart, we are told that our lives, like our fairy tales, are finite with a beginning and an end. We are instructed that the path to follow is the straight and narrow, and anything that deviates from this is an interruption. We are told that curves and twists are not ideal in this world, where space and time cannot bend.
But everything bends in the universe. It is a simple truth that the curvatures of our bodies reflect the phi ratio spiral of a sunflower, which in turn are micro images of the sacred form of celestial bodies swirling around us. But we are not told these things. Because they say we are confined to three spatial dimensions, we are told that we are powerless to change the hands of time- the passage of time, which they say, moves only in linear and not cyclical form.
We are told that bending the mind would shatter reality. We are told that things should be structured in rows, in a line, in uniform consistency, not by sweeping arcs or bent angles, or arches. We are pushed to align straight, persuaded from the spiral. And yet what we should be told is that the circle is an archetype of our psyche that is older than the sun, moon and stars, and we are at its center, the inner circle. And thus to come full circle is to beckon the sacred and divine, and an infinite energy and wholeness with the cosmos.
