Some of us (couples and families), are still, or even more, under pressure, these days.
Not talking about economics, or political situation, the whole rest…
It may feel like corona never ends, it will, but it will take time, and patience until then.
When we are confined from our Freedom, and restricted by forces we have not voluntarily chosen, we FEEL PRISONERS. Even we would rebel , we would still be or feel restricted in many ways. And none of us likes that.
But WE DO HAVE CHOICES, since we are confined in our “inner core”, more or less home, with few around. We still are, in a way, free, free inside.
The closest People (our partner, our kids) may become the focus of our frustrations, and our projections. Our rage may express many ways, and not necessarily be “understood” or “accepted” by them. They too have their own “issues”. All tensions may end by poisoning us, if it goes “wrong”, or by enriching us, if it goes “right”.
WE CHOOSE, not corona, not government, not restrictions.
“Things” to maybe reflect upon, in order not to submit or destroy our Relations, which are most important as the nearest Circle, could be…. (And surely there re plenty more…), to remember that…
Restrictions and what is happening “out there” is NOT what is happening in our Hearts.
(Our Hearts may be sad these days, or heavy, still…)
Our HEARTS, and our SOULS are and always will be FREE AND HEALTHY, whatever happens.
And LOVE, COMPASSION and PATIENCE always win, if there is anything to win, and our People are worth it.
We as Human Beings do have an exclusive way of expressing called COMMUNICATION.
At this moment we do need to TELL OUR TRUTH, masks are not possible when we are pressed together.
We have an opportunity to get to know ourselves and each other deeper, in “good and bad/black and white”, and “silly”, since there is no place to hide.
When we allow ourselves to EXPRESS sincerely, but keeping our Heart with us, WE MAY LEARN AND GROW , both within ourselves and within our closest Relations.
Another instrument we can use is LISTENING, still WITH OUR HEART.
And give ROOM, and moments of REST AND PEACE TO EACH ONE TO BE. It just needs to be taken care of.
We do have NATURE out there, to be with, and recharge.
We have SILENCE to turn to, good books, wise words by wise teachers, creative options, and prayers, meditation, blessings and gratitude to turn to. We got friends we can contact.
Some of us even have a spirituality to turn to. So many treasures!
Let us focus on what WE DO HAVE, instead of focus on what we do not.
And it all will probably be easier. (Well, if I did not believe it, I would not be writing it).
Whoever we are, wherever we live, and whatever we think or believe caused this worldwide thing called corona to “happen”, the fact is that we all are in it, one way or the other.
Exactly like climate change, and many other common issues on our Earth. Going “better” here, going “worse” there…
And whether we believe, feel or think, that we are One Conciousness, or not, we still all have to deal with all the issues, included this one, here in this Life.
Ohhhh! Who am I to speak and to be listened to? Just one of us. Anyone has the right and duty to express, or to remain silent.
I intake my place, “banal, right, wrong, wise”, if all these definitions have a meaning…
So, an “observation” here, you probably also have done…
Where are we? What can we do?
I would love to have a “solution”, but I obviously do not, or maybe I do, or maybe we do?
Maybe we can make “miracles”? In the quantum world, it should be possible.
It seems to me that four main “opposite” directions have appeared, probably more if we look closer.
And most of us move between these, trying to find some kind of balance. And they all are somehow “contagious”, and spread, exactly like corona. So…
Some of us seem to have “understood” and “accepted” that this new “state” we all are deeply involved in, can be used to “go deep into” what we otherwise may have interest in, maybe “difficulties with”, and usually “no time” for.
We “move inwards”, explore, and maybe “learn and grow” (hopefully).
We take the “we got to make the best out of it”, “shit happens sometimes”, or “I do not care, it will pass” position.
We, others, are “frozen” and have become “victims”. We fall into dispair and depression. Isolation makes us numb and passive, or fear disables us from any action or reaction. We are slowly drowning.
We, others, are “embraced” by rage, and engage in “fights” directed outward, and at times also inward.
There is no “right and wrong”, or at least, I am not the judge.
Though the “result” of our position may be of quite a different nature.
Swim, drown, or ban, our choice.
(And let us not be mistaken, we all move through all these, and more, states).
It would be very easy to say this is “my way”, and this is “how we survive”. There are thousands, millions ways to go about. If they work… maybe we got to pick some up and try, or to invent them.
Then, there is the “other dimension” to it, that some of us are into, too.
Transcendence… Moving a little “further away”, observing the Energy of what is happening, and dealing with this however we can, know and believe is “proper”.
And in any case, release or transform the Energy that “hurts us” into the one we can live and be “strong and comfortable” with , without closing our eyes, be false to ourselves, or get stuck in the “silly side” of the ego.
Transcend and sublimate from/in the “we all are One” position. And work in/from that dimension.
All positions will influence ourselves, our Relations, and our World.
Apathy, fear, and rage, are not very productive, when allowed to eat us up. Rage and fear can be transmuted into action that makes sense, without us being a “victim” of them.
And, should we believe that we all are One, let us watch, choose carefully, and do what is needed.
Let us NOT allow this thing, or anything else, to fuck us up!
Let us Live the best we can.
Health, Peace and Love to you, dear People.

Part of our World is closed down, and our future is uncertain. They tell Us to keep tight to our Families, and few Persons.
At this moment in time it is more and more necessary to HAVE A GOOD TIME. And most of Us know HOW to have a good time, and WHO We have a good time with. Though it may not always be easy to interreact within our little Human group, whatever group We have, especially when we are FORCED (in some places) to stay at home.
Here is my appeal, surely one on many millions, based on my experience with different kinds of groups and families.
Maybe this corona thing is giving Us the possibility to GROW in HUMANITY?
If…some kind of disturbancy should appear, maybe this text could be of inspiration?
It is simple, this does not mean easy, not necessarily.
*RESPECT Yourself and the Others.
Then, BE HONEST.
*LISTEN TO Yourself and to THE OTHERS.
We need COOPERATION RIGHT NOW, maybe more than before.
If uncomfortable feelings may arise, they need TO BE EXPRESSED, TAKEN CARE OF, and RELEASED. (We all are under pressure, so they may, soon or later).
*Then PATIENCE, (and about that We all always can learn a little more).
We may DEEPEN OUR RELATIONS, and LEARN MUCH about OURSELVES, and OUR HUMAN RELATIONS.
MAYBE NOT SO BAD?
And yes, We all know, and We all are capable, if We wish and care.
Our moment now is strange and tough, when we follow the news in our World. Many things are “on the balance”, and it can tip in different ways.
A few “things” are challenging Us from every side, and sure You know what I am talking about.
The “Limbo” state is changing into a more “fearful” one, for many of Us, regarding corona, one of the “few things”.
If We choose to keep Earth connection (connection to Our Bodies, Our Love, Our Reality, and what we need and love to do), and take care of each other (awake, aware and respectful), at least we will not get “too” lost, fearful, angry or depressed, (which even may “invite” sickness also, some of Us believe). We know, now We “have to” do.
We are Living in a weird movie, We got to deal with it, of course, and We will. Humans are good to adapt, so We do, We adapt, and survive.
“Living” may be different than “surviving”. How do We live with all this? We learn how.
Still…”the movie” is a movie, and making room between Us and “the movie” may be healthy, and lighter.
“The movie” was there before this movie, it just maybe did not feel so dramatic and scary, We were not “completely involved”. Now We are.
Nature was there before, and it is now. More and more of Us are starting to “use” Nature now, let it be a Friendship, and not “just use”, let it be that, what the Shamans, and many others always have told…
Let it be that We heal by coming closer to Earth. Let it be that We learn. Let it be that We open.
Let it be that We listen, that We look, that We feel.
Scary, a little. Possibility, new? Maybe.
We keep standing, and do Our Best.
We are Grateful for all that is, and all We have, and create positive Energy around Ourselves.
We all know how to move, and how to stop. We all know, if We look, what is “right”.
If We believe We can help by Healing, or Prayer, let Us do.
And why I am telling this? To remind You, and Me to Trust.
In this same occasion (Samheim), if wished and needed, we can reflect upon the patterns/behaviours and beliefs we have created this year, which do not serve our Light/Life any longer. Cleaning up is always good, and one can keep on and on.
We can look at them, and honor them, each one. Through them we have grown, and we are grateful for that. We can now choose to release them, shape and intake new Visions. We can choose to step in a new moment of Power and positive Awareness, a step further, for our Growth. And if we are loving, stronger and clearer, the World around us will reflect it, and be a better place for all.
Helped by the FullMoon, we can wash ourselves clean, while new Visions and Dreams can move forward and grow in our Conciousness.
So many small and big Deaths we go through our Lives!
We were working in a group the other evening, by a shelter.
Little trees, and Fields around us. Evening coming.
The theme “Peace (and Balance)”. It was raining quietly, Light slowly disappearing, Colors still strong.
I like to share with you what an Oak and a Birch told me. I have received, through the years, a few deep and important messages from Trees. They are benevolent Beings, caring for us People.
This Oak was a young one, dancing in two trunks, interwining. It called me, so I had to come very close.
And it said that Peace is like a Forest. There is Room for Anyone who cares and wishes Living there, Room for All, small and big, magnificent and humble.
As long as there is Room for All, and each Being have its own Space to Live and express its Life and itself, there is Peace and Balance.
Then, it showed me Spaces and Lines, like in Sacred Geometry, to notice.
And there was an area with Trees planted “in order” by Us, Human Beings, too.
It further said that “another kind of order” was necessary too, in some cases.
When I moved away, after thanking the Oak, I was guided to walk to a Birch.
The Birch was a young one also.
Its Trunk had been cut by someone’s knife?, and it looked like a “bad cut”, on one side, but if I removed my own “emotional judgement”, I could see the weird “Beauty” of the cut by its Color, and “accept it” somehow.
The Birch did not seem to “suffer”, and that I was happy for.
It said that “At times there may be some Pain involved in obtaining Peace and Balance”.
But Pain can be considered different than we usually do, maybe?
Thank you, dear Birch.
These messages were given to Me, and now to You, to reflect upon.
Thanx to You Trees for inspiration.
