Forgotten within the obsessive focus on using technology to protect us from ourselves and the Frankenstein we have unleashed upon ourselves, is the devastating impact we have had on our world and on each other. Further and further removed as we become from Nature, the more ill we have become. Connection is more than just touch. It is truly seeing; feeling and hearing; understanding that there is no ‘I’ and ‘You’; knowing that everyone and everything is interdependent; and permitting your heart to truly open and feel the spirit that animates ‘All’.
It was during the last redistribution of power in the sixteenth century that we truly stepped away from Nature, seeking to impose ourselves on Her; tame Her; control Her; and take from Her. Yes, we have materially gained and advanced by exploring Her secrets. Yes, we have improved the lot of certain sections of humanity. Yes, we have created a new interconnected world, mirroring Mother, but without the physical presence and touch that has sustained us for aeons.
But we are physical beings. We have incarnated onto this plane. We still require Her fruits. We still need to move; to touch; to feel; to connect. We need intimacy and a deeper connection, something that gives meaning and sustains us. That cannot be forgotten or denied.
It is something that women know, as their plight has been the Earth’s plight; and the Earth’s path has been theirs. The Yin knows that the whole of the Earth and all of Nature is full of light and gOd. Just as we are. Our Fall from light has meant that we do not see the Earth as sacred, just as the miracle of woman is degraded and objectified. Yet our disregard of the feminine is no longer something we can ignore. We are ill because of it and that illness will continue as long as we remain polarised and split.
More recently, this process has been similarly mirrored in the lives of those who are called to speak out about not being allowed to naturally heal themselves, just as the Earth is speaking up and out against those who ignore that She has rights and is alive.
Yet, within any transition are moments of light, when glimpses of what is possible arise. Today is one of those moments. Not only is it the day of the rebirth of the Piscean consciousness, our ability to heal and sustain ourselves is being reborn.
James Lovelock once said “I speak as a planetary physician whose patient, the living Earth, complains of fever; I see the Earth’s declining health as our most important concern, our very lives depending upon a healthy Earth. Our concern for it must come first, because the welfare of the burgeoning mass of humanity demands a healthy planet.”
Western society is the only society in history that does not see life as immanent. We have become so removed from Nature, from what sustains us, that we have unleashed a virus that is challenging us to rethink our way of being. Imagine what world we could live within, if we would only acknowledge the sacredness of the Earth and also of the Yin, the feminine?
The deeper the relationship with spirit that we cultivate, the deeper the connections we forge with ourselves, those in our world and with the world at large. As we awaken, so too does the Earth; as the Earth awakens, so too do we.
Today is a good time to start this process, if you have not already engaged with living more consciously. So why not thank your food today for the sustenance it gives you, or bless your water before your drink it? Or why not walk in nature without your phone and breathe in her fragrances and thank Her for all that she gives you, after all everything that you own comes from Nature. The Earth needs us as much as we need Her, since we are part of a symbiotic system:
Great Spirit, may we walk in Beauty
May Beauty be above us so that we dream of Beauty
May Beauty be in front of us so that we are led by Beauty
May Beauty be to the left of us so that we may receive Beauty
May Beauty be to the right of us so that we may give out Beauty
May Beauty be behind us to that those who come after us may see Beauty
May Beauty be inside us so that we might become Beauty
Great Spirit, may we walk in Beauty
