What is the root of the pain?
What is the root of the disconnection?
Our systems need connection to thrive, (and to survive, doing it alone is out of balance with the laws of nature), as connection is the true source of value, and I believe this disconnection is the number one cause of disease within humanity.
Yes, we must connect to ourselves, our sacred body temples, the earth around us, the clean water, and brilliant trees, the animals so wise, and each other-- not only our intimate relationships, there's too much weight I put on these, and this is the cause for so much divorce and separation. We must strive to connect to other people, and because of the great effort that it takes in this system of greed and isolation, with our separate huge houses, where we must use cars that damage our Great Earth Body (and many animal people) to get to each other, we are seeped in disharmony. Our relationships need more relationships to thrive.
We need to be eating meals together every night as community. Our children need community to be raised. For health. Or they will soon grow to be lonely and disconnected too, steeped in disease.
We need each other. We need to be in service to each other simply for the sake of service, and the great benefit that service brings to both the giver and receiver, as well as our great body earth.
We must break free of the paradigms of money, of the concept that we can sell the earth, the gifts from the earth, and our own sacred bodies and minds. If you don't think you're selling yourself or our Earth, look at the work that you're doing or creating (or destroying). Are you coming from the mindset of service, does it feel awesome to give in this way? Or are you doing it to simply pay the mortgage and feed your family?
Are you numb or lonely? Your system is signaling you for a new way. I certainly dance between lonely, numb, and inspired. It's an edgy dance.
Numbing is a coping mechanism when despair is too overwhelming. Despair is intended to wake us up, and motivate our actions forward, despair informs our responsibility. But if the despair is too great, then we go numb. And it's the numbing that is destroying everything.
It's time that we realize how to listen to our systems, how to listen to our feelings-- when there's upset or quarrel in the house, listen to it! Don't just think that you need a marriage counselor, or that something is wrong in your relationship or family-- something is wrong in the system! We need to be living in village, and community, it is imperative to the continuation of humanity, and to the continuation of the earth as we know it. Or better.
We must wake up to this new shift now. How can we take steps now in our individual lives for greater harmony of the collective whole? Not just humanity. Not just your family. Not just yourself. Not just your yard. And within these aspects, yes, there is service to be had.
Let us hold in our minds, hearts, and actions the greater unfolding for what is necessary for our collective whole, and for the real happiness of ourselves, of our families, of the way that we live. Aho!
