A Horse Chestnut “conker” ready to shed its soft, spikey protective capsule
Looking up at a chestnut tree, I see a seed splitting and opening. It's outgrowing it's shell and the emerging seed requires that it discards what once protected it.
Opening. Cracking open. Birthing. Potentials. Can you feel it? There’s a new energy afoot.
There are many things in this world that have failed humanity for a very long time. Imbalances in many areas. Greed. Misuse of power. Revenge. The pendulum has swung to extremes...back and forth.
The larger solutions may not yet be clear, but person by person we are each realizing our own personal solution is to know our truth and stand in it, in a balanced way.
Neither victim, nor aggressor, but a middle ground. People are seeking balance…balance in their own lives, balance in the world.
Beyond right and wrong there is a field. I’ll meet you there.
It’s good…it’s all good. Like the splitting of the chestnut's shell, it may feel destructive and unsettling at first but we are beginning to listen to the whispers of our hearts. We are standing in our truth and we are doing this both in solitary and in solidarity.
And my heart whispers the words of the Buddha...
“when you realize how perfect everything is, you will tilt your head back and laugh at the sky”.
Wishing you all a knowing of the perfection of each step of your journey. Thank you so much for visiting.
