There are no new ideas. There are only new ways of making them felt. ~ Audre Lorde.
As the new ways of living and working take hold, we all have to be grateful for the level of freedom that we can now enjoy. Many people around the world never have any of the things we take for granted. The last few months may have shown that we take too much without giving enough. Most of us in the West consume more than we need. We often devour more than is good for us, and waste large quantities of energy. New ways of living can help us to see a better version of ourselves through caring more for others.
Through our intention planning we can see a better vision of the future for everyone. Many people have lived in fear for most of this year, the new ways to breakout of the lockdown situation will be welcomed. Those most vulnerable, as usual, have suffered the worst. However, there are a growing number of forward-thinking people that do not want to return to old habits. Some enjoy working from home, having more time previously used for travelling and being relaxed not dressing for work.
The new ways of communication that we’ve all been a part of over the last twenty odd years aren’t going away. There’s likely to be even more modes of connection as people see more value in technology. This could have an adverse effect on future generations, but we can’t stop progress. There could be new ways of control and understanding coming to the fore. The pressure of the last few months has already created an explosion of mental health issues, divorce, and abuse. www.lionelpalatine.com
The next few months are likely to see economic problems and financial dilemmas for many families. More people watch television for their information than read books or newspapers. Sadly, we see more violence and perversion portrayed on the screen now, which must generate more in society. It’s only when we can find new ways to help others that we should be proud of ourselves. Setting new goals for ourselves at this point in history could lead us leaving a worthwhile legacy. www.lastwishes.world
Whenever people have looked for new ways to do anything, they have used a positive mindset, as the negative thinker wouldn’t even consider it. Our hopes to convert Blissland into a natural burial site have moved a step closer this last week. The entrance road across the field has been laid with stone to make access easier. This month our focus is on the planning permission we need and further practicalities like fitting a new waste treatment facility.
We spend so much time dealing with the mundane things that the excitement of moving forwards is often missed. When we look at old photos or think through what we have achieved a different perspective shows itself. The Healthy Happy Hub may need further alterations as new ways to do things present themselves. For now we’re pleased to be able to make a difference to whoever is willing to listen. As long as we continue to enjoy all that we do, we’ll carry on giving value where we can.
Namaste. Om Shanti. In Peace.
