In times of change, be still

I believe in a continuous evolution of things. In conception, growth, change. Moved by a whispering urge that is rising from within. Slowly maybe, but surely. Initially invisible.

I believe in people doing the work. On the inside. From behind the scenes maybe. When that work is done, the harvesting will happen, as a matter of time.


I don’t believe that what appears as a revolution 'just' happens, as a single event. Even if the event itself seems to surprise you, the system was probably stirring long before you noticed it. And it will stir afterwards.

It's like a universal law on the nature of things. And we are all subject to it. As we ARE nature, however much we seem to have forgotten it. Or wish to deny it.


The nature of life holds an innate capacity to shift shapes, to grow. To blossom even, in the right circumstances. We are given birth. And at that exact same moment we are given death, as a matter of time.


On top of this, human species is gifted a magical toolset, including the power to create. By choice! With the world as a playground we are unlocking our toolbox' potential, with consciousness as one of the most mysterious and controversial assets.


Chaos is part of our creative process. In times of chaos, it is often enough to be still. Tidy up where you can and be still. Take time to witness what stirs inside, as that is a herald of what will manifest outside.



In times of change, be still.

Nothing can be harvested that wasn't planted before.

Choose your seeds.

Water your garden.

Care for your sanity.

And be still.


Once your harvest is wealthy, SHARE.

Share the good stuff,

the matters of the heart.

Let the worried mind rest.


When nothing is known, be still in not - knowing. Find the eye of the storm. And rest there. If you haven't practiced it before, this is probably a good moment to start learning. (For example by exploring meditation and body work)

Choose your seeds! Know that every story you adopt becomes yours. The mind is ready to take on whatever you present. Make sure to be very picky.


With love ♥️
