As above, so below, as within, so without, as the universe, so the soul…Hermes Trismegistus
Hello Tribe. I’ve been MIA for a bit but it was all by choice. CHANGE of any sort often requires one to focus, go within and recalibrate. This most definitely applied to moi in 2022. Disconnecting from any form of social media was a natural course of action and quite liberating especially if you’re approaching the“Edge of Happiness” about to engage authentically in the world on you own terms.
Peering through the veil has only revealed much public unrest, conflict and even tragedy happening just below the surface. It has been absolutely mind blowing. Simply talking to and watching friends, family, neighbors and others can trigger a gambit of emotions from disbelief, sadness, disgust to anger or outright rage. The feelings of happiness, love and joy also linger somewhere in the middle creating the preverbal yin/yang energetic dynamic. These community novellas do not necessarily support one in maintaining a healthy and balanced mental state (especially for the individuals or clicks personally involved) but they do shed a light on our common and collective life struggles.
In this blog post, I thought about discussing some of those triggering events but instead choose to review them using an animated platform in order to not engage in more triggering diatribes and to allow some grace and levity for those individuals going through the drama. In reality, it could be any one us experiencing similar events. We are all HUMAN BEings still trying to understand, embrace and possibly CHANGE some of own own flaws and f*ckery. So if you look closely at the broader themes imbedded, you will definitely see the connections to real life challenges. The issues being exposed are 100 percent trUe and real indeed. Something is being said in this moment in time about us.
Perhaps we’ve sunk even deeper within the abyss and exposed situations once hidden. By un·veiling these events, there could be a profound foreshadowing about CHANGES yet to come. It also gives us an opportunity to reassess our own values and behavior and/or allows one to engage or sit on the sidelines and learn from someone else’s human lesson (pain or joy). This angst is a necessary first step for both growth and CHANGE as we steer hopefully towards a balanced, healthier and peaceful tomorrow. Until we create and embrace our own personal authenticity and a more humanitarian way of simply BEING, the battles and struggles will continue at the “Edge of Happiness.” Relax and brace yourself for the ride.
