Casual Simplicity

How happy is the little stone
That rambles in the road alone,
And doesn’t care about careers,
And exigencies never fears;
Whose coat of elemental brown
A passing universe put on;
And independent as the sun,
Associates or glow alone
Fulfilling absolute decree
In casual simplicity.

Emily Dickinson, the 19th century recluse, understood the vibrations of life. Everything was conscious in Emily’s world; a stone, the trees, the babbling brooks, and the clouds in the sky. All of those physical manifestations appear differently to each individual because they are another quality of consciousness that constantly changes. They are energy that express a form of subjective awareness. They are in our objective focus so we can remember the diversity that exists within consciousness.

What would life be without a rock? What would water do without the rock filled mountains? What would we be if we omitted rocks from our consciousness? A rockless universe would be another dimension to experience.

Rocks are a different intensity of consciousness. We depend on them to rationally form a physical world for us to exist in. Like water, they make our physical world appear whole, and filled with substance. Our life extends through the cracks and crevices of these created vibrations, when we perceive rocks as consciousness. Each rock is a universe of minerals that contain a world of abundance. Void of beliefs and perceptions, rocks expand in consciousness in complete contentment. They are unemotional and have no beliefs. The consciousness of rocks protrudes through the air, and dances with the clouds. Rocks mingle with natural elements and change form in order to express their physical consciousness.

Stones sit quietly, but express a quality of casual simplicity and artistic flare. Fulfilling their absolute decree, stones are content to be rocks of noble indifference.
