You hear the “fractal nature of the universe” get bandied about quite frequently, by self-help “gurus”, quasi-scientists, theorists of all stripes, and even by very well established, credible physicists.
But what the hell does it mean?
To understand, let’s first define “fractal.”

This is one of the first words we learn in life.
It’s no wonder that we use it so often, really.

We have many ideas about enlightenment.
None of them are enlightenment.
They are simply ideas about enlightenment.

As I had my morning cup of coffee outside, I pondered these words.
“A city on a hill cannot be hidden.” Jesus of Nazareth
Why did I wake up thinking this?
Well, I did just write a post about letting yourself shine, however, there seemed to be more to it.
And it occurred to me that I haven’t been allowing myself to shine as much as I could. I’ve been hiding my light under a basket, so to speak.

The scene: evening, home with the family.
The morning was a bit hectic, and someone said something that wasn’t very kind, and you laughed it off, knowing that he’s just not a morning person.
That day, you went to where you go during the day; work, school, the playground with your children.
For some reason, you keep playing that mean little thing back in your head, thinking of things you could have said.
But now that you’ve thought of what you could have said, you realize what they could have said…
Well, now you’ve got to retort to that, because they can’t have the last word, can they?

Spirit guides, guardian angels, Higher Self, God Self, Holy Spirit…
My experiences suggest that they are all one and the same; furthermore that they are aspects of our very being.
In truth, what we may call our “Spirit Guide” we may very well call our “Higher Self” or our “Higher Consciousness”.
We may even call it simply “I AM.”

It has been said that we are God experiencing God being God.
I think that is a beautiful thing.
We try to understand our reality, manipulate it, feel things about it, but just what is it?

In over a decade of research and practice, I’ve come across literally thousands of meditation techniques, hundreds of explanations as to what meditation is, and, were I to rely on all of this, I still wouldn’t be able to tell you!
However, I am a big fan of Occam’s Razor and gravitate toward the absolute simplest of explanations.
So, let’s ask the question, “What is meditation?”

Try this one on for size. This is nearly every creation myth and story, put into simple, non religion-specific words. I will use the term “God” here, because (at least for me) it is a term useful to describe the highest of concepts, existences, levels, what-have-you.
To me, “God” is an empty word. By that, I mean that the word is an empty container, designed to hold all of our thoughts, ideas and concepts of that which we, for lack of a better term, call “God” or “The Universe” or “Oneness”.

If you’ve been practicing the techniques, you should be seeing a wispy, smoky sort of energy. You’ll begin to notice this around trees, dogs, other people, nearly everything to a greater or lesser extent.
But what is it? Where does this stuff come from?
