Healthy & Joyful greetings to you!
A new humanity is being born. After ten thousand years of a domination system, we are moving inexorably toward a global society built on love. As Charles Eisenstein puts it, we have the opportunity to move from a Culture of Separation to a Culture of Interbeing (he uses the word coined by Thich Nhat Hanh to describe the interconnectedness of all life). After building civilization after civilization on a premise of fear and separation, it is time for humanity to step into a new way of being. Or perish.
The birthing process is painful… But rather than think of this planetary transition as a laborious birth, I prefer the metaphor of the transubstantiation of the caterpillar into the butterfly. — Jane Ellen Combelic
But what does that entail?
‘Interconnectedness requiring more mutual love,’ okay; ‘perishing civilisations,’ okay too; ‘birth pains,’ yes also, but not gone through myself;2RESPECT to all mothers! ‘chance or change?‘ again, I’ve asked myself this question about Nature thousands of times. But it struck me that I couldn’t remember the insect transformation in its entirety…
So here’s a visual meditation (±4mins) to help crystallise the steps of the change/ development/ transformation/ transubstantiation metaphor in our mind. I’ve seen it now twice and each time noticed something different and fascinating. Enjoy and best wishes for Peace & Light!
