Bliss Mistress Guide: You-nique and You-niversal

by Edie Weinstein


Each day I read numerous emails and Facebook postings, books and letters that are sent to me, penned by creative types who follow the guidance given to them by The Muse, download information from the ethers, channel celestial guidance, and are as I am “God’s Typists” who takes divine dictation. Some of it is even too wild for me, but much of it I can relate to as if I had written it myself.

Carl Jung referred to this as the ‘collective unconscious’ common to mankind as a whole and originating in the inherited structure of the brain. It is distinct from the personal unconscious, which arises from the experience of the individual. According to Jung, the collective unconscious contains archetypes, or universal primordial images and ideas.” www.britannica.com

Today, I read something that my friend Jacob Nordby had written and it touched a chord in me and had me thinking that I could have offered these words.

"...and of crouching on river banks, face tipped to the sun. The old, silent trees standing and watching and breathing, while the very bones of me tingle down to their splinters and marrow-cores with knowing that in ten thousand years' moment blinks they'll crumble and sink back into the earth from which they once rose. And this while the Me has danced beyond them, having delighted in all that was, but no longer imprisoned by any of it. Such is the journey and it is good."

journal mutterings of

Jacob Nordby

Have you ever had that experience of taking in the poetry or prose of another and having it seem that familiar as if it had been plucked from your brain or via a Vulcan Mind Meld? These days, we are so tapped in to each other, if we are open to it, that it truly is difficult to discern whose words are whose. While it is true that we need to exhibit psychological and physical boundaries to maintain our wellbeing and have healthy relationships, it seems equally valid that when we live with a sense of One-ness and spiritual connectivity to everything around us, our creativity thrives and our ideas percolate like fragrant coffee…for me it would be frothing like the foam that sits atop cinnamon and cardamom laced chai.

Everything is a writing prompt for me, which is why I have ‘writer’s runs’ rather than ‘writer’s block.’ When I see something shared by a fellow wordsmith, I am inspired; certainly not to plagiarize, but instead to see it as a springboard into new pools of ideas in which I splash about. Everything we write is unique to us as individuals, since we all have various experiences and histories behind us. Our filters have different colors and parameters. As authors, we also are called on to write about universal concepts of life, death, good, evil, balance, dark, light, fear, wonder, love, hate, youth and age.

I consciously make a choice each time I set fingers tapping onto keyboard that what I am transmitting, not only come from me and for me, but also through me so that it resonates with the reader and have them feeling as if they are in the scene with me. In that way, perhaps they too can dip their cup into the You-niversal soup pot.
