Part 3 of “corona exposes” shows that we lived blindly a particular reality as if it were the only one. Many people, once at home due to the lockdown, forcefully adjusting their lifestyle to a new reality, started to see its benefits. Our collective eyes were opened. Of course many suffered and still suffer the economic consequences as their money dependent activities froze or even disappeared. It is hard to accept that such income and occupancy was purely related to one way of structuring our reality. When this broke apart the activities disappeared while others appeared within the societal importance that arose due to the alleged virus attack and need to attend the many flaws of the old reality within producing human resilience and comfort. A new reality (maybe even more then one) manifests itself, ready to be filled in by new human engagement and structuring.
To illustrate our collective blindness and sudden lifechanging awareness breakthroughs, I use this image. And I ask you “what do you see?”
Most people see a set of squares, with a certain depth due to its design. What most people don’t see are the 16 circles. Can you see them? If you do not you may even declare me crazy, making fun of you, looking at me in disbelief. Circles? That is because the circle reality is not yet part of your truth. And it is hard, if not impossible to accept someone else’s truth that you cannot perceive. There is no reason to “believe” me since there is no promise for a better life to do so, it is just an open invitation to have a more open look and maybe accept my guidance until you capture the new image. Not many accept this invitation (why should I? No need! No time! No patience. No inner curiosity?) if their reality is hooked onto the world of squares, not circles.
This is what happens when I ask people to open up to the reality of Sustainocracy, a society in which human wellness and resilience is leading, not money or political power. Most people ignore me, they don’t even perceive my invitation, because they are fully absorbed into the perception in their single reality. Those who do accept can go through a process of curiosity up to a point of engagement. For those that engage it is not a choice between the squares or circles, it is accepting a reality in which both are present and taking their benefit.
Corona opened up the eyes of many that the old reality may be limited and even potentially damaging. The new reality was often not yet clear, just like the world of circles in the pictures. We may have heard that they exist and now open up to looking broader. Others see the broader picture and start adjusting already.
For me my world changed in 1996 when I had to make very powerful choices. Entirely new dimensions of life reveiled themselves to me. My life has never been the same ever since. Yet I cannot blame others not to see what I see, or behave the way I do. Gradually, over the years more joined me in the new resonance. Now corona pushed even more over the line of awareness.
For those of you still looking at the squares and wanting to see the circles. Just concentrate on the little vertical lines between the squares. The circles will reveil themselves once you relax in the focus on the vertical lines.
