Dear humans. What a ride it is for us to navigate the power-play of our species. I trust at the bottom of it, we all want safety, security, to be heard, to have power in our world, to matter.
The recent Australian election produced a conservative, corporate-biased party to continue to govern our nation. Their strategies for safety and security quite often come at the depletion and erosion of the life systems unpinning our way of being.
Many pined for a saving-grace - for the state of our country and of our planet - on a change of government. Many are now gutted, deflated and deeply confused.
Thankfully, In amongst the pain and confusion, rustles a whisper of something deep and pertinent that we’ve been asked to attend to all along.
In Australia, we are afflicted (IMHO) with a chronic form of PTSD stemming from generations and centuries of power-over disempowered people dynamics. My sense is this wasn’t always the way, and that perhaps the last Ice Age was the catalyst for major trauma that has perpetuated humans in confused power-play since then.
Somehow in amongst the strange dynamics of a colonist culture on mis-appropriated lands, we have an opportunity that our whole species is being asked to embrace. We, here in Australia, are blessed to be on vast stretches of precious and sacred land. Our per capita opportunity to be in connection with Earth is likely one of the highest in the world. And our opportunity to connect with some of the oldest perennial cultures in the world are likely one of the highest in the world (despite the mass decimation of Australia’s original peoples).
That pertinent whisper is asking us to re-humanise.
It’s asking us to get real with what it means to be a species within the living systems of Planet Earth.
It’s asking us to go back to our roots - deep deep down into the roots of what it means to be alive, to reconnect and reconcile with the dance of symbiosis, regeneration and healthy balance with the greater planetary whole of which we are a part.
The collective reflects the personal, and vice versa. Therefore, focus your energies on the regenerative resources stored deep in your cellular memory.
Access your capacity to creatively respond to change, and to integrate the current state of things in our continuing expression of life.
Get your house in order - step deeper into the change you want to see by taking the steps to be in greater balance with our planetary needs in your own reality.
Be diligent with your focus. Take the self-responsibility that’s asked of you.
Do the work to burn-off the traumas triggering and distracting your precious sensory power. Allow yourself to surrender into the greater intelligence of life by releasing your grip on what things ‘should’ be like.
We are in a constant dance of emergence. Unconditional love and unconditional trust - in your deep knowing, and of the greater knowing - are powerful allies.
Be in integrity with what it means to be a member of the life family. So that, ultimately, we can all exist with a sense of safety, security, to matter and to have power in our world.
Blessed be for all you are.
