Processing the collective – – (fill in the blank)
Things enter and leave our lives like waves, inviting us to listen, digest and adjust our actions. This time I’d like to write about ‘processing the collective’, an experience anyone of us can have.
An uneasy feeling of deep sorrow crept upon me, slowly rising. I noticed it but hoped it would go away.
But no, it demanded attention, acknowledgement and action.
So I sat with it, and was curious about its ‘name’, its origins and clan.
The sorrow spoke softly about the curse of profit over symbiotics and ecology on Earth. About ‘time is money’ eating away on our relationships. About communities of intertwining living beings – ecosystems, humans included, eroding.
The sorrow spoke about the fragile state of our green energy – vitality, chi, source energy, that has been blocked and worked against by poisoning, vast monocultures and corporate thinking.
It pointed out the madness of producing goods in sweatshops and shipping them overseas, polluting families, oceans and our perception of the true cost of things.
I will not go on and list everything the sorrow had to say, but I’ll give the contents a name in order to identify it: Mondial suffering, through generations, by all living beings – water included.
The truth has been dripping through at a steady pace, weakening the dam of ignorance for a while now.
I’m eagerly hoping the day will come soon, that we, as a collective, refuse the poisoned food, the cheap stuff with a high price and stop putting our elders and other “non-productive people” out of sight.
The vision of smaller communities, with a lively social and economical exchange at short distances is presenting itself as highly desirable.
I’m hoping that we talk about what is wrong and we fix it. That we refuse to buy into the old paradigm. That we breathe out a revolution of interconnectedness, sustainability and wisdom, showing (and experiencing) how strong Love can be.

NB. Once a month there is the Gathering, a place for a small but vibrant community to get together and talk about deeper spirituality.
Next to it, is the Online Gathering! Finally it feels like it’s the right time to blow a breath of Life into it! Free from time and location, I hope it’ll become a loving platform of exchanging thoughts and visions – come and take a look!
Nina, thanks so much for the post.Much thanks again. Really Cool.
