As the world grips with the alter toward social seclusion, controlling pandemic-related stress, and an uncertain future, we at Wanderlust know that our greatest persuasiveness are the wisdom of our presidents and the strength of community.
We have reached out to the lighthouses in our teaching society to share some succinct, actionable penetrations with local communities, as well as to call on us to be bold and foresee how this shift can create a better macrocosm. Because fantastic occasions call for astonishing lead.
COPING IN THE PRESENT
These periods are challenging for certain. I don’t mean to diminish the amount of suffering out there physically and financially, but I do watch a big silver lining.
The foundation for delight to me is an insinuate alliance with quality. I have often said that the more we blur the line between where we end and where nature begins, the happier we will be.
This is especially true these days as our monetary device is in relation to a stall and anxiety becomes the new normal.
I turn off my news alerts and compile the time to download the doctrine of the beautiful into my soul each day. I start my mornings early under the stars in Bali. I ignited a candle and dirt. I breathe slowly, sit on the field and feel the reverberation of this planet. My litmus test for whether I am present or not is, do I examine to the song of the birds? I just relax and cause them sing them sing instantly to my heart.
On the best of eras, it helps to set my honcho straight, but as we all reduce our carbon footprint to close to zero you can nearly hear the Earth exhale. I would admonish everyone to take joy in the small things. Each bud, each sigh and each cloud.
Oddly, the universe works in strange modes because two years ago roughly to the day, I decided to radically cut back on my travelling so I could live here in Bali where I can surf, live a simple life with my family and write diaries. I wanted to live in harmony with the moon and the tides. I expected destiny to help me make it happen.
We didn’t plan on staying here but our flights were canceled and somehow, we ended up in the exact same villa we were living in two years ago. Our circle is small. We eat healthful nutrient from local farmers and imaginative liquors are flowing.
Answering THE CALL
This is an unprecedented experience where the whole world has been asked by Mother Nature to stop and go to our areas and think about the footpath we are on.
I feel parties are going to go one of two ways. One is to resort back to tribalism, to take no possession for the pandemic and accuse others for their affliction. They will disconnect from others who don’t make like them and face the situation with anger and hostility.
But there is a massive chance to push the needle in the other direction and recognize the talents that have been offered to us now. As we press intermission, we notice the profound stage that we are all interconnected. We have seen incredible acts of kindness in the emergency rooms and in our neighborhoods. Not many of us will take time with loved ones for awarded anymore.
Nor will we take mood for conceded anymore. My biggest hope is that we realize that we reassess our role we have with nature. When we deplete our clays, fill our shelves with processed food and complete our markets with swine life and pooing on top of each other, it’s obvious that we have become to busy or too disconnected to care about our impact on the planet. As a species have lost our internal compass to feel “whats right” anymore.
The big ask from our current situation is to shift from the illusion that we are the master to a client on this planet. As Chief Seattle reminds us, “We did not weave the web of life, but we are merely a strand.” In so many ways, we have fallen out of balance with nature.
It is so interesting to me that the one major displacement we all it is necessary represent reduction of our carbon footprint. This we have to do in a big way.
