Quiet days…watery days…
Feel like a dam with the waters rising. Only in the sense of too much to say. So I’m of to a lake-side, to ponder.
Water is clearly a huge and growing element in our consciousness.
Floods floods everywhere. Waters rising.
Biblical proportions in Oz. Floods in Brazil. Floods in Sri-Lanka. Flash floods, tsunami like floods. Hyperbole aside, this is one of the worst “seasons” of flooding in many many decades.
And it is only going to get worse. Why do I say that with such conviction?
Water, one of the key elements in the esoteric pantheon of the Five Elements (Earth, Air, Fire, Water, Aether), represents the emotional side of our existence.
Emotions, like water, run deep. And the deeper you go, the more you enter dark and unknown worlds. In the depths, we hide all our faces we do not like.
Our industrial world, so focussed on form and all but bereft of function, definitely bereft of organic function or form, has pushed those selves of ours even deeper, keeping us constantly distracted on the surface. Notice how a television screen looks like a vertical bowl of water? Or a laptop screen too? Dark, deep water at that.
And so we are being sent a signal. Many (me included) believe a strong element of weather modification gone out of hand in the current scenario, but that is as it is, of this time and so a necessary part of the mix.
Water, mostly our friend, but long misused, muddied, polluted, overfished, dammed, wasted, abused….is now sending us the message. Loud and clear as it were.
As without, so within. If we cannot heal our own inner waters, our micro-waters if you will, then macro waters will come and wipe the slate clean, literally, figuratively and meta-phorically.
Better yet, the same cycle of increasing intensity from the other elements will begin to manifest also.
Look for mega-storms to start hitting. Those involving water, fire (lightening), air (of course, giant swirling spirals of air), earth (slides, chunks, cracks)…..
We are, as a species, elementally out of balance. We are out of balance with-in and so completely out of balance with-out.
In our daily lives, there is no cognizance of the power and grace of the elements.
It is not for nothing and not out of fear (huge misconception) that ancients worshiped the elements and the elementals. Their deification was only a logical extension, making them available, gross.
It will do each of us well to look at ourselves as this elemental mix, be grateful and dive deep.
And hold on tight. This ride is going to whole new level shortly.
Incidentally, this blog is not temporal, for the most part.
Feel free to dig back in the archives vis Days I wrote on the right pane.
And be well.
There is no other.
