We all know the wonderfully helpful wave-on-the-ocean metaphor; I’ve also been enjoying thinking of our ‘selves’ as wrinkles on a fabric. (Hat tip to Eckhart Tolle’s "Ripples on the surface of being” quote from this interview textaudio)

Check out a wrinkle on your shirt right now. If you pull on a wrinkle you’ll notice all of the surrounding wrinkles change. The other wrinkles don't conform or submit or lose their uniqueness when they change. They often get more interesting. How many times today have you changed someone’s experience, by doing you? How many times has your experience been changed by others? All without threatening your sovereignty?

Also, is the fabric we’re all wrinkles on, interbeing, or consciousness, or love, or stardust, or…?”


With love, Jordan
