Meta-lessons : NEMEs

I’ve only scratched the surface of what it is I’m Mulling, but it seems like this:

Meta-cognition is an inquisitive state of monitoring one’s unstoppable learning process, or evolution. It observes patterns in the mind and environment, which when Noticed can either be Engaged, or not. If Engaged, an experience emerges that relates to the pattern. If we mindfully Mull the patterns we’ve Noticed and Engaged, it triggers awareness of a meta-lesson, a sort of meaningful ‘aha’.

The meta-lesson is what ultimately repatterns the field of consciousness, augmenting our behaviors/beliefs. As we Exchange these lessons, there is a resonant empathetic response in our interconnected relational field. The meta-lesson replicates and adapts as those connected to us mimic the cognition which triggered the uplifting effect(s).

Meta-lessons can be articulated in a number of imaginative ways: as models, methods, or a series of memes that are shown to facilitate the particular¬†mindfulness¬†associated with one’s personal meta-learning. This is a constant recoding involving feedback Exchanges within intentional learning environments.

Personally I think of these meta-lessons as NEMEs: Notice, Engage, Mull, Exchange. They are woven into the Tubes of our evolutionary journey, as well as the Spheres of our ascension. NEMEs may well be a guiding flow of pre-sentience into our meta-selfhood.

Better to say it wildly, than simply put it mildly.

Alignment with Source.

I have a complex, multi-dimensional life. I have many factors to take into account in every decision I make, and I have the challenge of remaining focussed on task with long term projects while life erupts unpredictably around me. I will frame this in terms of Pattern Dynamics to help me develop a practice of doing so based in my immediate awareness of life and relationships.

To remain grounded in the Source of inspiration and perseverance required to be effective in multiple domains simultaneously, I engage a disciplined meditation practice. I also enact daily yoga practice. These routines set up a Rhythm which sustains a conscious body-mind. With this connection to Source sustained I can engage the Dynamics of interacting with various emergent forms of Exchange, both in relation to the people in my life, and with the various information flows that I pay attention to.

I often find that during Exchange Dynamics, Polarity arises. Opportunities to reflect on aspects of an Exchange which are not immediately apparent from my individual perspective are revealed this way and an opening for Creativity in response can arise as a result. Engaging Creativity in order to reveal deeper nuances in Exchange allows for broader more inclusive understandings to arise between myself and others as we partake in the Dynamics of our interactions. Polarity can be met in a variety of manners depending on the content of the Exchange, and the underlying Structure of the individual alignments to their Source of inspiration can be revealed through engaging Polarity with Creativity.

The Structure and Rhythm of my life and work are what enable me to embody a coherent presence in multiple domains. My alignment with Source flows into my creative expressions which I present to the world and the people around me as a representation (Structure of identity) of the being that I perceive myself to be. The Structure of self-identity which I align with Source, is a highly disciplined and yet totally surrendered nexus of feelings, thoughts and actions which interacts with the world through various means, both direct and indirect.

Self-reflection through observation of Exchange Dynamics, paying particular attention to instances of Polarity allow for a Dynamics of creative restructuring at the self-identity level, on an ongoing basis, in relation to the requirements of the currently arising situation. A deeply aligned Structure of self-identity with Source allows for a fluidity of responsive surface Structure of identity as a person in the world.

At Home with Source

The Source of who we are together holds a space, which for me feels like home. Let’s start by remembering that Source is the core of the Pattern Dynamics. It is an Energy which I feel stimulates a sense of shared purpose. It is a Power in our consciousness which expands like a sphere of possibility. It is a safe MetaCog space in which we can play.

Those of us in the MetaCog space, seem to sense something similar: this Source. It holds many patterns, which we’re beginning to explore. It appears to be helping us self-organize into a model of a healthy planetary society.

We’ve come together around these patterns which might accelerate our learning process. We’re sharing content that expresses how we dynamically relate to what seems our Source-identity. In time our purpose(s) become more easily expressed and embodied if this MetaCog space truly is our home.
