Norwegian officialdom is trying to decide whether mass murderer Anders Behring Breivik is sane, or not. It’s an issue for us all at the moment. If we wander from this courtroom and head over to the G20 Summit in Mexico we might feel even more confused. Eurozone countries have committed to upholding the existing political and financial arrangements, and have allocated an additional 360 billion euros to the task. Right, that should do it!
In my own small world, I have withdrawn support for the past structures. They truly do make me feel wrong, even insane.
As my car and two computers failed to respond, against all logic, to any and all attempts at resuscitation I finally had to surrender to the inevitable. It was a brand new third generation ultra fast i7 laptop for me. And, equally inexplicably, I got one for about $700 less than expected. Even the salesperson couldn’t tell me why it was so heavily discounted. The car, well I’m still figuring that one out. It sits beguilingly outside in the carport, trying to convince me to drive it somewhere. No, I’ve learnt my lesson. It all starts out well enough and then it overheats after a while, randomly. No one can tell me why.
What I do know is that just now, trying to patch up the structures of the past can keep us trapped in old discordant places. Places where we were tolerated rather than celebrated (thank you Katy Perry for that phrase!). Places where necessary resources were denied us, where nourishment didn’t quite hit the spot and where fitting in was more important than our own truth. Well, I’m glad that’s (just about) behind us!
Life is saying, clean up the last of that mess and get ready to move on! The only things that need your attention now are the bits still stuck in a world that denies their value. Yes, those traumatised bits of us really do believe that old world is all there is. With gentle encouragement they too will learn to trust the forward motion that’s impulsing us so strongly.
Getting the timing right is this week’s focus. Not too fast, not too slow. Rushing gets us nowhere fast. Allow time for the nourishment to seep into everything you do.
