Sometimes, the only way to change the world,
Is to live your life
As though the world already was changed,
And to live it loudly.
The world is continually evolving and going through cycles. We need to align ourselves with the rhythm of nature. If we do, the future can be an exciting time for new beginnings and growth. We need to pay close attention to what is going on around us and how it affects us, we might need to reassemble and rearrange our plans moving forward. Don’t worry, if we do, it will all work out for the best.
The old Norse people believed there was a fine balance between chaos and harmony, and that sometimes chaos had to erupt in order to bring about change and reclaim a new harmony. In such chaotic times, the “Jotne” (the giants) and the gods would fight, some gods would expire, but new heroes would arise, and those heroes would bring about the new harmony. The ultimate chaos was called “Ragnarok”. This was the time when the snake that kept the world in place would die, and all borders would fall.
I think we all go through such battles in our lives, be it an interior battle within ourselves, where chaos threatens to bring down our old beliefs and habits, or an exterior battle; chaos and unrest in the world, when humanity itself is plunged into chaos, and have to find new ways of life to cope with the disrupting changes, and to eventually restore harmony again.
As time passes there is change.
Some things get broken and some things get lost.
A bird loses its feather as it brushes against stone.
A hand touches the feather, bravely.
It carries life, eternity, unlimited grace.
There are ropes, tearing apart,
there is breaking free,
and cliffs, Rocks, Changing…
and gentle hands touching stone, bravely.
