just thought this might be helpful for everyone.. i think it really says a lot.. this is from a greater kan and li workshop i have been listening to on cd..
paraphrased from michael winn:
The taoists separated early heaven from later heaven so that the physical aspect of the heavens (stars galaxies) is considered later heaven…as is physical earth
early heaven is within later heaven and is seeding forms into the matrix of space and time..
as a human, we are part of both.. our souls being within and coming from early heaven into outer later heaven.. energy becoming physical..
however later heaven, as an unfoldment, gathers things back into early heaven as a cycle of creation/harvest.. so that certain things can be absorbed back into it..
the physical existence being an expression whose essence can be caught back into it’s source..
this implies a seeding of energy, pattern and information that takes on developing physical forms that can then be absorbed back into energy and pattern source for successive spiral like cycles of recreation…
