"There is nothing new about flooding. The image of the flood is an ancient metaphor, found within the myths and legends of cultures around the world. It can represent an overwhelming, destructive force that renders humanity powerless in its wake and leaves us seeking refuge. As global warming drives an increasing number of extreme flooding events, this message continues to resonate."
“Man is the most insane species. He worships an invisible God and destroys a visible Nature. Unaware that this Nature he’s destroying is this God he’s worshiping.”
I have been looking for insects and lizards under every snag, making pets out of them. This natural world was an adventure for me, I have retained this feeling to this day and it fuels my interest, but now plants have become the object of my attention.
In the brief moments of their encounter, the men, my ancestors and forests would have exchanged energy. With trees inhaling what my ancestors have exhaled over the years and vice versa, the exchange of energy through breath could have been inevitable. Through touch and contact of human sole on the same soil that nurtures the forests, the trees must have transferred their humility to the humans.
The great misconception of our time is that we see ourselves as separate from nature, every day our choices are informed by the misconception of separation. But this can easily be reversed because these misconceptions aren’t truths found in the natural laws, there we find everything is interconnected, so also our own beliefs about ourselves, our direct environment and the world at large are interconnected.
Who decides when a woman will have her bleeding cycles, It’s purely a decision of her body that runs on synchronicity as complex as the movements of the planets. It’s an ancient gift that she has gotten from her ancestors. When no one can decide our sacred cycles then how delusional is it to pass laws that decide a women’s right to give birth or abort a child.
Nature in its rawest form doesn’t put barriers in ways of expression, sexuality is one of these expressions which can be explored, imagined, translated, and experienced in different magnitudes. Everyone has the right to be who they are and follow their deepest intent.
I know and feel that I am water, I am fluid and I can adjust, I am the container of it, of my soul and wisdom. All the teachings and learnings are already wishing me and water reflects all this back at me.
Even during these catastrophic events, we should not forget the beauty of Nature, the power of creation, she is almighty, she is forgiving, she is us and she can transform. For instance, the light from the sun has the energy to sustain an ongoing process of life on this planet even if, in terms of distance its million miles away. We can be located in any part of the world and still be a part of this healing process.
I shall like that this work makes us think about our place in the Nature and about the respect which we owe her, strongly current and political theme.
