Darkest Clouds Brightest Rainbows

Each year when the Acacia trees blossom the darkest storm clouds gather for rain. It is the same with the time of the pink Cherry Blossoms ... each year when the Cherry trees blossom the storm clouds gather for rain.

The most dramatic of all are the white Acacia storms in May. The white blossoms are brightest of all against the dark grey storm clouds, that drift along between heavy rain showers, blue sky and bright sunlight. Later in the day, when the sun descends on the Western horizon, dramatic rainbows are cast onto the dark grey clouds in the East.

The brightest and most colourful rainbows shine magnificently, magnified in depth against the darkest storm clouds.

It is the same for humans and for the collective human society. Inside us exists everything we see and feel in nature. The only difference is, nature is not afraid of itself ... nature is! However, humans are afraid of this natural transformative power within the body, within the spirit, within the mind.

In general, humans are afraid of those dark psychic storms of the soul.

You know! Those massive storms that appear brooding and dark around the tallest mountains. Where the dark and brooding storm clouds embrace the topmost peaks of those mountains. Yet, in the midst of those dark storms one can experience the brightest and most powerful rainbows.

If people and planners were foolish or careless [or got too greedy], all their buildings can be washed away by the downpour of water and natural landslides that occur on vulnerable parts of the mountain slopes. It is the same in society. When people or organisations get too greedy, they attract what could be called "correctional storms".

The more greed people build, the deeper and darker the storms get. Because, we are a part of nature and the same processes of nature are taking place inside us and within our interrelationships with each other and with the Planet we live on.

It is totally natural that the Planet cleans itself every now and then. From hundreds of years to thousand of years cycles, the depth and power of the Earth's self-cleaning varies. Our ancestors used to know and understand this principle.

Native Americans warned: Forget the principles of balance and you get hit with the consequences.

The planetary storms are coming no matter whether we live in balance or not; but when societies live in balance they can deal with the storms better than societies who are out of balance. Why don't humans understand that?

Political & Social Change
As long as I have been on the Earth I have observed non-stop and endless calls for "change". The river is flowing to the right and it has to flow to the left. The river is flowing to left and it has to flow to the right. Let's change it !!

It's not change that we need .. we need balance.

When humans live in balance change is natural. When humans find balance the vehicle of planetary travel is living-in-balance where the fuel powering the journey is change.

Change is a natural outcome of balance / harmony.

Go back to the landscapes of nature, where life forces of Earth create balance - out of which weather patterns form. Humidity and precipitation change, temperatures change, one day there are clouds and the next day blue skies. Even desert temperatures and weather conditions change dramatically as day turns to night and as night turns to day.

In reality, humans do not want change (which means they have to adapt); but humans try to create static environments in which they live elaborate, self-indulgent and unnatural lives. The world systems are terrified of change, and in that respect invite conflict, division, fear and violence.

Human societies around the Planet are a mess because humans are not living in balance. They don't even seek balance. It is not something anyone cares too much about. The solution that will resolve much of the world's problems is not even on the psychic radar.

Rainbows are a perfect representation of balance. The entire Planet we live on is a perfect representation of balance. Even the human body (with its psychotic inhabitant) seeks to create balance within itself. The body is the best friend you have.

In Ancient Egypt - Early Dynasties - the body was the Temple .. a representation of divine order. The body was the measure of symmetry and balance. How many of us truly love our bodies? The same way one would love a dog or a cat or a beautiful garden? How many of us appreciate our own inner temple of balance?

Afraid of death?

Even physical death is a representation of balance. The same harmonics apply to death as apply to life.

You don't have to destroy society to change it...

All you need is to look for, find and understand balance .. and this is why a large number of people in Europe (for example) will return to the land in the next fifty to a hundred years. You want growth? Grow food, grow trees, grow forests, grow Hemp ... from Hemp you can eat the seeds and build houses .. and the Hemp plant also survives drought.

When we seek balance, change comes about naturally on its own. No one has to want change .. it will simply form as a natural part of the human landscape. This is not a question of political, social or religious ideology .. it is a question of relationship with oneself.

Let's just take one aspect as an example: We live our entire lives inside a human body and how many of us learn from the body or even listen to it? How many of us consider the body as a wise teacher? How many of us would dare to turn around for a second and notice that the body-mirror to the Self is there? The inner mirror of change...

That is where you will find, on that dark obsidian polished surface, your brightest rainbow.
