Fall is a season we share our harvest with one another. We have the opportunity to extend our bounty and reap the benefits of feeling the gratitude from our neighbors. As the north begins to prepare for the hibernation of winter, the south is welcoming a respite from the sweltering heat and is coming out of hibernation.
"We must stop constantly fighting for human rights and equal justice in an unjust system, and start building a society where equal rights are an integral part of the design." - Jacque Fresco
A wise teacher of mine speaks of separation -- like when you realize the summer has given way to fall. That feeling that walks with us throughout our journey. This feeling of separation and the desire for unification can be a
force of destruction or of daily rebirth. It can manifest perceptions of opportunity, or manufacture fear and distrust. The experience of separation rests within us all, or perhaps the better word is "wrests." Our capacity to establish a daily practice that aligns our purpose, relaxes the body, quiets the mind, extends our flexibility is the tool for releasing us from the grips of fear and distrust for the practice lessens the experience of separation.
When we fight for human rights and equal rights in an unjust system, we focus on what is not right and therefore continue to be part of energizing that which we seek to end. When we are focused on building a society where equal rights are an integral part of the design we are creating, we are using the tools of cooperation and collaboration of co-creativity!! We are energizing what works. In turn we are dismantling the powers of fear, destruction and reducing the perception of separation.
Let us continue to work to discover what we have in common and build on that which is life-giving.
Happy Fall! Welcome to the season of colorful harvests and plenty.
