All Those New Year Resolutions…

What is happening in the world?
What is happening in you? …
We are so used to looking outward, at the fires in Australia (like the latest news put it) for example.
And what about our fires?

I admit I refused reading the news, yet the info that got stuck in my head is that half a billion animals died in the fires since September 2019. Correct?
I decided to do a little fun exercise and reverse everything that is seen as destructive outside as something positive.
A little what if.

What if the fire is there to clean and purify?
Oh can you count the number of fires we had last year? 2019 The dramatic year of fires? The Amazon… California… Siberia… Africa (which didn’t get any news coverage, wonder why? Please ask yourself why)… Australia…
Fire has a double nature: it destroys yes, but it also purifies. It cleans. So that new can be born from its ashes. It makes the land fertile again. It takes away the unnecessary, or the too much. Or it simply takes away what is, so that the new can have space to flourish.
We tend to fight everything. We are at constant war with nature. The Ancients knew and accepted what is. Our response to fires is desperation, we simply lack the ability to see a possible advantage.

What if Mother Earth is undergoing an inner revolution, a deep change and need comfort which is given by warmth which is given by fire.
What if new animals we cannot imagine are about to be birthed, but Earth is over populated for more evolved species to walk its lands.

What if…

We humans tend to forget we have a double nature, like everything. Now we tend to focus on the destructive and stupid side of us. Well, but just like the fire we have a positive nature and I wish for all of you to remember it.
The beginning of the New Year calls for resolutions and new projects. Are we ready? Have we cleaned the unnecessary? Have we purified the space within us from the weeds for new flowers or trees to grow?
Or have we kept fighting when surrender was the only way to a possible future?
Rain… the tears of surrender will come at the right moment, when we are ready. Are you?

That what happens outside happens inside. That what happens inside we see it happening outside: in the world.

What if… 

New year resolutions were about becoming more ourselves; having the courage to see through our bullshit; having the strength to live life fully and about committing at making changes in our life first! Before going out to preach the world about how to live how to recycle how to speak how to act how to dress how to love how to talk how to walk etc…. 

Welcome 2020!
