As a facilitator who has been dealing with energy and other metaphysical areas for a long time, I have found many of my questions answered by people form the past generations and centuries long gone and not by many of the light tomes available in my now. I respect the traditions that carry with them answers and solutions; now I add my own twist and will add the modern if needed to make it prevalent, but the core of it remains unchanged.
Keeping it simple is one of my running themes. I try Being one with nature. Of being respectful of both the simplicity and complexity of our seasons and the natural flow of renewal that takes place day in and out, without a flow chart or advisory committee in sight. There is a saying out their" it takes a village to raise a child", I think it also takes a community to create lasting change. But each member of that community needs to be involved, not on a massive front but in their own homes and life. I love the simplicity of the community I live in around recycling. We are allowed to be totally passive in our recycling, we are giving blue bins and we put them out curb side once a week and they are emptied by a truck. Simple. Really effective and as a lot of people are competitive I have seen an increase over the years of more items being put out in my neighbourhood. Passive, simple and totally effective.
Now if only we could approach the other issues we as a society have facing us, with this type of simple inclusive approach. To stop being so isolationist and elitists in our thoughts and projects, especially on a government level.
Today I walk in simplicity, breathe in simplicity and leave my mind open to seeking simplicity, to being part of a solution and doing my 'bit' in any way small or large.
Just a thought
