How are we? We are okay, but not okay, we are fine but we are disturbed, our sleep is disrupted, we retreat into a safe corner only to find that there is no peace and then we seek something else reassuring.
The world is offering us plenty of entertainment, there is much to inspire us in the moment, or very long term, but the general conditions are in a state of flux and transition and this is being prolonged too long for comfort. Temporary solace and interesting vignettes are bountiful right now whilst the deep slow rumble of a reality being reconfigured incessantly continues.
Uranus in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn have been locked in conflict, ultimately creative conflict, for the last 3 years and we are now reaching the culmination, or close to the culmination of this psychological and sociological intensity. Not that we can expect the social situation just to be cured, but that the intensity will dissipate, maybe...
Uranus in Aries provokes novelty and distraction, the mind is also inspired to detach from the ways things are to explore and excite a new concept of life, but Pluto in Capricorn has more power.
Pluto in Capricorn compels a desperate need to control and maintain the status quo and impassions the desire for total control, absolute control, in response to its ultimate effect which is to dismantle, destroy and transform the social structure, the traditions, the status quo and the established reality.
We are locked into looking back to find the reassurance from the past or from commonsense or some mystical wisdom that is timeless. Yes the ageless wisdom of eastern mysticism is always relevant, but still the energetic condition of life right now keeps demanding our attention. And so we apply ourselves and what, no full answers are supplied. We cannot fully transcend without a radical ignore-ance of the churning wheel that is squeezing our whole reality.
“We as a species have the choice to continue to develop our bodies and brains in a healthy upward trajectory, or we can follow the Western example of recent decades and intentionally poison our population with genetically altered food, pharmaceuticals, vaccinations, and fast food that should be classified as a dangerous, addictive drug.” Vlad Putin who seems to be a voice for truth?
The economy has become an absurdity and politicians have become an Orwellian parody, the authority of science and religious institutions are a joke, but not particularly funny. The collective need to maintain the illusion of our social structure and its pretense of democracy, or to maintain the illusion of a free market of money, ideas and innovation and of the ideology that anyone in real power is actually trying to solve any of the world’s problems, is… understandable.
The change required seems much too big for us, so we push it away.
Within this emotional furnace, new qualities within human beings are emerging or attempting to emerge. We have largely adapted to the realization that the world is a crap house that rewards those that conform and take the corporate phallus unto themselves.
Life is still offering goodness, the corporatized monstrosity of the mainstream corrupted structure still inadvertently supplies. The rational position is now fully rationalistic, a self perpetuating logic that is consistent within the mind and yet totally divorced from the empirical evidence of reality.
It sucks, but technology is the reward and yet better is the appreciation of nature and of those we love and share with.
For as the malfunction increases it pushes us to love that which is worth loving.
An existential crisis that offers us the opportunity to enjoy or rather quietly appreciate the simplicity of existing with others and with the world as it is.
Trust in life itself.
Trust in life itself.
