Surrender and The Universe

Ahhhh I’m so loving this. The Nassim study and related conversations have me down the most *delicious* rabbit holes!!

A dear friend quoted back to me a Buckminster Fuller reference to the word “Tensegrity” – well I can’t hear Bucky Fuller’s name without getting interested (I’m immediately transported back to college studying with Bucky’s friend Harold Cohen, building Bucky balls, and doing all sorts of other fun mischief related to my current work).

So I immediately had to google to find out what the heck “Tensegrity” means.

I found this quote on the Tensegrity Site:

The word ‘tensegrity’ is an invention: a contraction of ‘tensional integrity.’ Tensegrity describes a structural-relationship principle in which structural shape is guarenteed by the finitely closed, comprehensively continuous, tensional behaviors of the system and not by the discontinuous and exclusively local compressional member behaviors. Tensegrity provides the ability to yield increasingly without ultimately breaking or coming asunder

HA!!!! I’m stealing that line as my new definition for my practice of “surrender” — “Cultivating the ability to yield increasingly without ultimately breaking or coming asunder.”

HA!!! Oh that’s delicious….I love that.

Meanwhile, I also recommend the Wikipedia link on Tensegrity
in case you’re interested.

Onward down the rabbit hole! (Mischievous studies include finding tons of amazing stuff by John Quincy St. Clair that I’m now pouring through, as well as getting my hands on work by Walter Russell and Drunvalo Melchizedek. Can’t seem to ingest this stuff fast enough. Having very funky trippy dreams and meditations now too but that’s a whole other set of stories!
