As I sit at home along with most everyone else in their homes, and I reflect on this amazing turn of events in so short a time, I am reminded of the American experimental film Koyaanisqatsi: Life Out of Balance (directed by Godfrey Reggio with music composed by Philip Glass and cinematography by Ron Fricke). Created in 1975, this was the first film of the QATSI trilogy. The title is a Hopi Indian word meaning “life out of balance.” It is described as “an apocalyptic vision of the collision of two different worlds – urban life and technology versus the environment”. The images were both beautiful and disconcerting.

Our current situation echoes this idea for me. Perhaps this is Nature is in the process of re-balancing a world gone out of balance, resetting how we live our lives and interact with the Earth. Maybe we have gone over a tipping point. Wisdom, Nature, Perfect Intelligence organically corrects . . . and maybe this is the correction. Nature is not punitive or personal . . . Nature just unfolds organically. And since we are part of Nature, we experience these natural adjustments.

So many of us have been too busy, doing too much, not being and doing in balance. Perhaps we didn’t pay attention to how to take enough loving care of ourselves collectively. We denied our inter-dependence and inter-connection. And so Nature will find a way to re-balance that which is out of balance. Think of the pressure built up in the earth that results in earthquakes or volcanoes. Or a cold front and a warm front colliding and the resulting thunderstorm. One way or another, the pressure has to be released and balance restored.

Life and times have changed dramatically. Everything is quiet, like a snow day without the snow. Perhaps we just needed to stop for a while, be still and reset. Life will eventually resume, and it will not be the way it was. It will always be different from now on, for more good . . . even if the path forward is very painful. We can bless what we observe and experience, because it allows us to make different, more loving, kinder choices.

I am also hearing from my guides that this is a wonderful time to call on those who have crossed over. There are legions of beings in Spirit able to help us from the other side. As always, we have to ask, say Yes, and receive. It’s all there for us, just for the asking . . . and receiving.

And as always, I send more love than you can imagine to everyone.
