Restarting the World

“We are witnessing [a world on fire]…the phoenix falling into the ashes and rising again. We are participants…intimately connected to this planet, and part of a cycle of evolution, a reshuffling of how we will engage with global life…it is a time of healing and inner transformation, awakening. Hopefully it brings out the very best in us…as we move into a very different world, demanding that we discover new resources in ourselves.”

Carolyn Myss was an important spiritual teacher when I lived in the Bay area 20 years ago. Decades later, she continues to help me navigate the changing waters with amazing clarity.




And this…from Sonya Renee Taylor.

We will not go back to normal.

Normal never was. Our pre-corona existence was not normal other than we normalized greed, inequity, exhaustion, depletion, extraction, disconnection, confusion, rage, hoarding, hate and lack.

We should not long to return my friends.

We are being given the opportunity to stitch together a new garment.

One that fits all of humanity.

Sonya Renee Taylor is an author, poet, spoken word artist, speaker, humanitarian and social justice activist, educator, and founder of The Body is Not An Apology movement.
