To build a fortress or to build a bridge. To tether oneself tightly to the ground or let the winds move us freely about. This is what our currant climate demands. What our collective mindset vacillates through. It is the eye of the storm, the unsettling calm. The knowing and the wait for what's next as we continue this marathon. Life as we know it.
It is in these times that celebrating life demands our focus, as this is the counter force to our current ills. No matter what ill one chooses to view at any given moment. It is the strengthening and supporting of our collective values that builds a stronger support structure. That weaves a stronger web. By uplifting the efforts of others and how we live day to day slowly creates a movement, a positive force that is fed upon.
There is a bigger picture that needs not to be missed, the creative forces that are moving us forward. The future positive is being built as I write this, if not faster. It is a matter of what we choose to see, the growing garden or the weed. These are not the worst of times, innovation is proving that. Despite our failing government, which admiringly has us bound by emotion and uncertainty can be best approached by a sports analogy. Keep your eyes on the ball and play the field. Life is said to be a game and can be best navigated through action and vision. Through support of the team and focussing on the goal.
It all comes down to the umbrella of support. The reaching out and gathering. A matter of support and supported. To build a home, one needs the makers and to build better health one needs the growers. This is applied directly to the future. What is supported now, supports what's to come. It is the water to the garden, the sun to the flower.
