An Indian Civilizational Perspective

Progress and Spiral Principle

Since I was a child, I’ve always seen the spiral symbol as continuous steady advancement. In my mind it has usually been a source of very powerful expanding energy. That’s the reason why I didn’t always believed that going from point A to point B a straight line was the only way required. Maybe it was due to the fact that several times I traveled with my parents from México City to Uruapan in the State of Michoacán on a bus on a peculiar highway named the one thousand summits. On the map the distance seemed very short, but the ride on the bus was long and tiresome in spite of the breathtaking sights. Sometimes we were able to see some white clouds beneath us. We used to advance going around and around. This continuous action made many people seasick until we reached this wonderful town famous for its different and beautiful National Park. Nowhere have I smelled Mother Earth strong lively fragrance like this amazing place.

Ancient accomplishments were obtained through the use of the spiral principle. Here in the Americas as well as in the Middle and Far East lands the four main cardinal points were considered as very sacred emanating different kinds of great energy in harmonious ways. Some years ago I read an article in THE AMERICAN SIENTIFIC magazine about how city people usually get lost when they are in the wilderness by going around and around from their starting point. Forest guides told this magazine that it was because city people use the same orientation they are accustomed to. These people create mentally straight lines like those of their cities streets, big mistake! Man-made structures are usually use straight lines; Nature uses curved lines, so used to orient himself by straight lines he gets lost because all around him are curved lines.

Until very recently, due to our present problems, I’ve seen creativity as an expanding spiral trying to find its proper natural channels to be fully manifested. It’s really very sad to see many people restrain their creativity by putting on self-imposed straight jackets. The good news is that there are still several ways to liberate our creativity, one of them is by taking off this garments by spending time mediating, praying and getting immersed in our intentional thinking, forgetting not the emphatic use of our intuition. Creativity is our most precious soul skill. If we succeed on this endeavor we will surely become God’s blessed children.
With a united ascending spiral to God’s realm from all our loving hearts your brother.Azokata-nous
