Ten short years ago my friend Colin Morley left this world and continued his journey. Colin was standing next to the bomber in the explosion at Edgware Road. In one of the last pictures I have of us, we’re standing in the picture window of my home in Luzern during a Mereon team meeting, talking about my art which he was preparing to take to the world. Facing Mt. Pilatus, Colin was lovingly admonishing my self-description as a ‘dilettante with a paintbrush’. For decades, while feeling like a spiritual kindergartener, I’ve experimented with colour and form, using it to soften the edges of the geometry as I tip-toed around the world of math and physics, a domain that often felt black and white. Discovering that the rainbow flows between dark and light, whenever I suffer from not feeling good enough or smart enough, technicolor bruises and raw wounds self-inflicted of course, I paint until my heart is content. It was this that Colin was helping me achieve as he plotted ways to take it to the world to help make the message at the heart of the Mereon Matrix clear. Colin, a brave and loving human being, was indeed a catalyst for something far greater than hope; he was an instrument for positive change and I am a better person because he touched my life.
Colin, I remember.
When I read that UNESCO had declared 2015 ‘The Year of Light and light based technologies’ it seemed somehow perfect! But it seemed to my brain that their logo need needed a bit of revisioning their. This was my effort to communicate my thought! ☺
One of my favourite books is ‘The Little Prince’ by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, and his words, “He who must travel happily must travel light” have long inspired my heart, calling beauty into mindfulness with regard to what truly matters in light of eternity.
The word “human” comes from the Hindu words “hu”, which means light. Few know that “man” means ‘mind’, and that science indeed affirms that you are embodied light!
For almost three decades my life has purpose has revolved around the resonance of light, the Universal symphony whose harmony gives rise to life. It all began with a single point of light that both called and carried me over the threshold between life and death. It was there that I left my right footprint imbedded in Eternity, and my being was imprinted with the experiential knowledge of Light’s wholeness. That moment, changed how I hear and see the world forever as a cosmic loom wove the strand of a divine tapestry, entwining space and time, and filling it with a light that can only be described as love. I live for the day when T.S. Eliot’s inspiring thought is realised in the hearts of humankind, “And all shall be well and all manner of thing shall be well when the tongues of flame are in-folded into a crowned knot of fire and the fire and the rose are one.”
The Mereon Matrix is a template for a living technology of mindfulness and shows us how to flip the switch and turn on our inner lights. Such is true ‘InLightenment’, a job that is yours and yours alone. If you’re in the dark, flip the switch or take off the hood. You’re meant to move freely and fearlessly in this world, light that opens the darkness as you lovingly work/play to make a positive difference. When the light’s on inside it’s easy to explore, trailblazing spaces you’ve consciously or unconsciously stayed away from and this is how you find your way to “The Fountain of You”! There you can blend all the ingredients you’ve found and gathered along the way, and mixing it with the alchemical elixir that you find flowing there, what you blend forms a unique potion that has the power to transform your body, inpower your heart, inlighten your brain and inspire your spirit to be and with others achieve what you’ve only dared to dream! What you are blending is the libation of liberation!
Today, Day 12 in the Year of Light in the Age of Transformation, create a ‘Fellini’ moment and joyously dance with abandon in the ‘Fountain of You’!
Mereon.org, home of the Mereon Matrix, the logic beneath every word shared on this site and the education programme, the BeLonging Projects, is currently undergoing radical transformation, evolving as every sustainable system must!
