The Mushroom At The End Of The World, is a fascinating and rich read into capitalism and nature and diversity that I am diving into after this book sat on my bedside table for months upon months. This particular part quoted above really struck me, as pertinent to this very moment. However, this book was published in 2015. Which means research and writing would have begun years before it. Don’t you find it strangely comfortable when you read something at a time when it feels like the earth is on the precipice of chaos, only to find it not describing this very moment, but all the moments just like it that have presented in humanity?
Right now, we are indeed in a strange new world, in 2021 with only four months until its closure, with many shifting, strange, odd fitting contours, it can often feel so discombobulating that it’s hard to stop the room from spinning. And putting one foot outside the bed on the ground, is not going to help. Nor will the ‘hangover’ necessarily wear off. So we have to begin to work with it. We have to allow our curiosity to peak, explore the new contours, even if blind, using other senses. We can stretch our imagination well beyond our conditioned mind, the media narrative, the outcries and fear, and wonder, how can we be of service in a new world such as this? What is required for us as individuals to stay grounded, deal with our triggers, not bash into other humans but embrace compassion and take a few deep breaths and get on with it. What action can be taken today, for you to align to your higher self?
