The past month has been immense. Seeing ‘life as usual’ move into ‘unprecedented times’ is confronting.
Yet this immensity, for me, hasn't felt like overwhelm or breakdown. It has felt like paying attention. Watching. Observing. Seeing what’s happening and responding with the next most appropriate action.
In some ways, I'm not surprised by this situation of global lock-down catalysed by the COVID-19 viral pandemic. Big things were bound to happen in 2020 - the planets were gearing up for this and astrologers have been talking about 2020 for a long time. The archetypal experience they saw coming was major transformative work on the world’s structures and institutions. 'Brutal' and 'brilliant' are the theme words I use a lens to interpret.
To be honest, I'm glad we're at this point.
As complex living adaptive systems, life's emergent nature simply hasn't been attended to by the status quo. The modus operandi of the industrial zeitgeist has been operating counter to the living systems principles we know sustain life. The situation has been winding up like a rubber band being pulled tighter and tighter. It was bound to break.
