Do you ever have a strange and sudden shift in perspective? Perhaps that is what the moon and eclipse energy brought in. I feel more at ease now that the intensity has let up, but I also feel sobered in a way. I feel as if I can look at things from a slightly different perspective maybe that was just clarity brought on by much-needed rest and sleep. Sleep sure does matter, I hate the debate on how much is too much and how much is too little, I think our bodies know what we need and the need varies. The need also varies from person to person, I know people that sleep no more than 4 hours and are fully functional, others take more, I believe it is all dependant on our genes and our individual needs, such as illnesses and body needing more time to repair, maybe our brains need time to sort through a load of information.
Our bodies self-regulate, for the most part, they try and tell us what we need to eat, they make us slow down when we continuously push ourselves and ignore the signs. It’s pretty impressive, we are all tiny walking miracles, we are all amazing. Individually and collectively we can do amazing things each of us contributing something unique to us. We work too independently though, imagine if so many creative and intellectual people gathered and worked with one another, what might they create? We would have to put aside that pesky ego and allow it to be a collective effort and not try and take credit as individuals. When did that start with human beings, the need to have credit to have our names attached to things? I am sure some of it arose out of necessity but why does it dominate our lives so strongly still? Why do we do a lot of the things we do?
I love to watch foreign shows and of course, I must read the subtitles, I was never great at grasping other languages. You see so clearly from other perspectives this way and all of the similarities we carry at the end of the day as human beings, we should not be divided at all. We have far more in common at the bare bones of it all. We could learn a lot from one another. Maybe my children will see a different world though most likely it will be much further down the line. Perhaps I am too much a dreamer for my own good though I see the potential so clearly and tangibly. We have always been way too possessive, our country, our state, our county, our town, our street, the list goes on. I am annoyed by the fact that we still are charged to live and exist. It’s insanity when you think about it. I also feel like we got too far away from a life of self-sufficiency, growing our food, I doubt the younger generation has a clue how to even begin to go about it and that to me is a very dangerous thing for them. Advances can be great, technology can be good but we need to resurrect the old ways too, newer isn’t always better. Change is inevitable but not everything should change in the name of being better or easier, sometimes hard is worth it.
