When I started noticing the little details in my life, the joy of living reappeared big time. And I became mighty curious of what life can be beyond the mirage. We are living in such interesting times!
Little details? Yes, things like the number 13 appearing in all important moments for instance. What does 13 mean? I have no idea! I’ve never been into Kabbalah or numbers, but I do start noticing. Does anybody know why 13?
Another one is a typo in my latest design for our think-and-do-tank Abundanism. I wanted to say sacred. And it came out as scared. I laughed. The Universe, Gaia, Nature is such a silly trickster. And she always talks to us in riddles.
Of course, I’m scared. At times, I’m scared shitless! But I know, I just know that life flows so much easier when I can tap into my curious, joyful energy of knowing everything is alive and sacred.
Word jokes. Numbers. Little things I notice since I’ve become aware of stuff.
They say ‘the devil is in the details’. Well, for me it’s pure magic. Pure joy. Pure laughing with the Gods on how evolution is playing out at this moment in time. I see way more than I did with just my rational brain. I understand way more by now.
The devil is in the details.
GOOGLE AND GAIA PAIR UP
Because I’m a bilingual writer, I often Google little phrases to see if the context is understandable for my English-reading audience. And what does Wikipedia say about ‘the devil is in the details’? I thought it would be about how perfectionism can get you off course. How details can muddle things up. But it can’t have been further from what I thought.
“The devil is in the details” is an idiom alluding to a catch or mysterious element hidden in the details. Something might seem simple at a first look but will take more time and effort to complete than expected. It comes from the earlier phrase “God is in the details”, expressing the idea that whatever one does should be done thoroughly; that is, details are important.” –Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_devil_is_in_the_details
Wow, this is interesting. What do I see?
- Whenever something gets mysterious, feminine, tangled, unexplained rationally, we call it The Devil
- God is details (expertise, specialism) and if you are connecting the dots, finding the connections, understanding how living systems work, how Nature works, you are studying The Devil
- You need time and effort to come from Devil to God
And I know, I just know I’m on the right path with my life and my writing. The new era is about connecting the dots, making space for Universal wisdom to come in via intuition. Mystery is how we will create more and better than was already there. And don’t think we need hard labor to do it.
Maybe the time for mindlessly doing is over and the time for mindfully being has arrived?
THE RIB AND FEMININITY
One more then. The other day I knew, I just knew I had to write about how we are going from the Anthropocene to the Syntropocene. I looked up syntropy. And in biology, it is the term for how a rib grows.
“A formation of a series of similar parts having the same orientation (such as the ribs)” –Wiktionary https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/syntropy
Wow, this is interesting. What do I see?
- I always explained Syntropy as the moment a river starts flowing. At first, it is a chaos full of vortexes. Then it becomes a full stream going in one direction, the horizon. This is the moment of time we are living in. The shift from chaos to flowing in one direction
- Google gives me ribs. Ribs? Why ribs? My first association is that in Christianity, Eve is created from Adam’s rib
And I know, I just know that we need ribs back into our lives. Femininity. Mystery. Intuition. Emotion. So, I spend my life rewilding our soils and our souls. Knowing that we will make progress. We will learn how to create living systems instead of the dead ones we try to hold on to now so badly.
Nature has all the answers. And the Universe shows us with little signs.
And I just don’t need to know it all rationally. I have made my biggest progress by leaning into the not-knowing. The mystery is too big anyway! Just give me 13, some sacred, and a rib and I’ll figure out the rest of the puzzle pieces with my feet standing in the sea.
How I love my life of nature-connection, curiosity, and wonder!
