Early Morning Leaves - Secrets at Dawn




These leaves contain a powerful presence. It took some weeks of getting to know them, just before dawn, before I began to draw them and their radiating energy fields. The leaves, the small tree, presented a very complex picture of consciousness.



This full-blown consciousness is literally bursting to make itself known. I have celebrated its individuality and anticipated its growth by placing it in  a powerful and generative geometric context.



The geometric armature supports the emergence
of this newly revealed nature consciousness
by means of three general processes.

The Generative Process,
symbolized by the square root of 2:
The diagonal, dividing the root square in half, serves as “an expression of the assimilative, generating, transformative function which is root”. The root is a symbol for the law of sacrifice in nature, for like a mother, its efforts are not for its own benefit but to uplift the plant in its movement toward the light.
The Formative Process,
symbolized by the square root of 3:
The Vesica Piscis appears as overlapping circles, literally, a bladder [vesica] which when filled with air would be in the form of a fish [piscis]. They represent any unity in the midst of becoming dual and symbolically join together heaven and earth, above and below, creator and creation.
The Regenerative Process,
symbolized by the square root of 5 and its related function of PHI, the golden Proportion:
This is the proportion which opens the way for the family of relationships called the Golden Mean or 1:1.618. The Golden Proportion generates a set of symbols which were used by the Platonic philosophers as a support for the ideal of divine or universal love.
[Text taken from Robert Lawlor; Sacred Geometry, Philosophy and Practice]





"The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you
Don't go back to sleep.
You must ask for what you really want.
Don't go back to sleep.
People are going back and forth across the door sill
Where the two worlds touch.
The Door is round and open.
Don't go back to sleep."
