As I sit here at my desk, staring out the window at the view of the mountains for the 100th time today, I am struck by the something fundamental around the emerging story of gender energy on the planet right now: The paradox how our old stories about what is masculine and what is feminine no longer seem to apply.
Let me explain.
What is your story about time? Seriously.
Play with me if you are unsure about this.
Take a moment and complete these sentences to uncover your time story:
My days are……..
I am most focussed in the……
Time runs away when……
Time stops if I.……
My life is here to……
Okay, so, is there a pattern in all of this for you?
A few weeks ago something amazing happened to me.
I felt true peace for perhaps the first time since I had been born (in this lifetime at least).
Contentment – but more than that also
A sense of being really, truly present in the moment
A moment that could stretch on for eternity
It took me by surprise
And it was humbling
This weekend brought Storm Ciara to the UK.
She was relatively minor compared to some of the global symptoms of climate change that we are experiencing in various countries right now and yet dramatic enough for those living here on a small, grey, wet island.
The thing with living on an island is that you can become quite insular.
