As human ‘beings’ I believe that we have always sought a higher vision.
Whether this seeking is connected to our aspirations for our personal life, or the search for higher and more evolved forms of collective social purpose, we are naturally ‘questing’ creatures, constantly striving to know more, to be more and to experience more.
In the fast changing and tumultuous times we now find ourselves living in, our human hunger for ‘more’ can be seen for what it truly is – a force that is both enabling and destructive.
Hunger itself is neither bad nor good – it is simply the catalyst for a response to the call of evolution. When aligned with the classical hero’s journey, the traits of human hunger can be seen as either destructive or creative depending on our individual and collective response to them.
Yes, we are approaching Spring and Easter, but that is not why I am feeling called to write a storyhack with this title.
I was compelled to get up this morning, come down to my kitchen table and start writing because I realised that this is the story of my life.
Your life too I believe.
The saying that ‘life is full of death….’ may sound like a cliché, but let’s stop for a moment and consider those words.
Perhaps it’s more accurate to say that ‘life evolves through a series of mini deaths’, each one a shedding of an old way of living, an outworn belief, or even a global system that is long past the time of it being useful to ALL.
And ALL is the watch word of this decade. Watch and see.
At the time of writing this the world has irrevocably changed in just a short few weeks, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
And by the time I write next week’s storyhack it will have transformed completely once again.
Thing is – it always has.
This is the true nature of evolving life and consciousness on Earth (and beyond).
The real challenge has been one of distraction.
“These are the times when we grow”
I found myself writing this to a friend this evening.
This week my husband and I decided to start self-isolating.
Amongst the perceived confusion and chaos currently being experienced in the UK (and across the globe) due to the fast spreading COVID-19, there is a benign virus emerging and its called surrender.
