I’ve long considered this complex topic but have resisted writing about it prior because I just couldn’t get the key points to line up on the page. Why I’m now putting it on “Finding Your Truth” is to hopefully help you shift your mode of thinking, and maybe even your perspective, on how to view all the many ‘clues’ to your LIFE’s meaning that are currently existing all around you, so bear with me please, if the initial subject seems a bit of a stretch here.
Yes, the picture above is a beautiful flower. Okay. The flower’s assigned genus or name, I don’t know—just as I may not know your name, but I might have an idea from where you originated depending on your human physical characteristics, which could also be clues to your reason for existence in the here and now. Isn’t that why genealogy reports are presently so popular? People seem to want to know their ancestral origins. Some want to know where they came from as far back as they can possibly trace.
We as a species might be homogeneous in many ways, but yet some part of us still believes in our own uniqueness that filtered through all the consecutive generations before us which may hold “clues” to our present manners and traits; not to mention, to our distant family connections which comprise our actual ‘personal history.’
Okay, but back again to that flower above because it is a pretty amazing flower specimen when you more closely examine it. It has a perfectly symmetrical, hexagonal pattern of petal growth. Look how many layers of meticulously-formed petals unfolded to display that gorgeous rosy-pink spread it displays. This is significant for many reasons that we might normally ignore because of being familiar with the beauty of flowers in general. We tend to overlook that which we see daily.
In that flower shown above, as each new layer of growth shot upward from the center stem and then outward, the previous ones spread out further forming the supporting structure for every new layer of petal growth—kind of like humanity itself—the older level of awareness supports the newer consciousness expansion. But at some point in each flower’s DNA programming, a limit was set that defined the extent of new growth permitted from that individual stem. For this particular type of flower, some internal programming determined that after eleven or twelve layers of petals, YOU—oh beautiful, rosy-pink flower, are done—complete. This was your time in the sun to do your own thing, and you did.
This was YOU in the entirety of your current being—YOU in your magnificent full blossom—YOU as the perfect expression of all your possibilities in this LIFE. And without a doubt, YOU are truly amazing during your brief existence here. You did your job well, because when it was time for you to shoot out the end of that tiny stem, and you simply did it—YOU FLOWERED—to the very best of your abilities—because that’s what YOU were MEANT to do. It’s in your DNA to do that. YOU as an expression of LIFE itself can and will do your thing as only you can—YOU, when it is your time to do so, will blossom in your full regalia—a majestic wonder to behold.
That is because YOU in your full flowery beauty didn’t have to figure out what you wanted to be—you only needed to be YOU, in all your natural magnificence. That’s a pretty amazing consideration, to realize that you simply need to be what you were intended to BE all along—an amazingly magical, living expression of life’s perfection in whatever form it may take.
But again, back to considering the flower’s growth structure above because this may be a key point in uncovering nature’s clues to the design of LIFE in general: R. Buckminster Fuller believed that geometry was the language of LIFE (Synergetics: Explorations in the Geometry of Thinking, volumes I and II ). He said that if you could decode all the designs in nature—the formulaic analysis of plant growth patterns and fruit/flower displays as end products of a particular plant species, and IF you could actually interpret what was being implied by their design complexity, you would know LIFE’s true meaning and be able to comprehend LIFE’s choice of expression per life form, simply by what nature was showing you in the simple, natural geometry of LIFE’s design.
The only requirement for your understanding was that you needed to properly decode those geometric lessons that nature has provided all around you, if you wish to discover the true intention of LIFE itself. He was saying in effect that all of LIFE is intentionally created, with each expression of creation being perfectly designed and programmed for species expansion by an assumed engineering intelligence likely beyond our present comprehension ability. He didn’t speculate what/who that Creator might be, but he implied that by witnessing the results of such designed creations all around us, LIFE was clearly NO accidental occurrence.
In other words, he felt that if you were perceptive enough, you only had to look for those geometric design clues in nature itself to determine why LIFE existed in the manner that it did, because he was fairly certain that those clues revealed LIFE’s true significance—including your own significance.
So perhaps taking the time to look more closely at design details in the natural world around you can have a perspective-shifting effect on you, because in truth, YOU—now blossoming fully in this world in all of your own magnificence—are ONE of those important species ‘details.’
