The message is loud and clear. We have to SURRENDER. Stay home. The enemy is invisible and yet powerful. Surrendering is a profound spiritual concept. We can all learn so much as this time. Stop fighting. SURRENDER.

Definition of surrender

  • stop resisting to an enemy or opponent and submit to their authority
  • give up or hand over (a person, right, or possession), typically on compulsion or demand

In a time of crisis we naturally respond with either FIGHT or FLIGHT. We are now being asked to do something quite different. SURRENDER. It is time to submit and go with the flow. We need to understand that we are all connected here is SA and globally.

This time of lockdown will give nature time and space to breathe. This will be the greatest climate change experiment ever conducted. At the end of this process, we will have the data and evidence needed to track our impact on the planet. The world needs to stop this excessive drive for growth and consumption. It is an outdated 80’s concept which was when this cycle last began. Saturn conjunct Pluto between 21 January 1982 to 26 September 1983 and now again between 28 February 2019 to 24 November 2020. The world is looking for a new paradigm. We all have a part to play.

It is time to find the stillness within. We often blame our situation on others. Now we have to look deep within. There are no distractions. This is often an uncomfortable process, but very powerful. It is time to take personal and collective responsibility. We need to stop being so selfish. It’s not about you. It’s about us.

21 days. It is always said that new habits form in this time. There is no time like the present. Make changes to your life or lifestyle. Start a new practice. Meditation. Breathe work. Mindfulness. Drawing. Writing. Painting. Settle. Find calm. Do whatever it takes to get into the flow of life and living. Find the peace within. This is a profound time of letting go. There will be loss – life and resources. It is going to be incredibly challenging and yet we have an opportunity to do something quite different once this crisis has settled. Make this time count. You may never get another opportunity.
