A Portal

Post by holley » Tue Nov 30, 2021 4:09 am

“Whatever it is, coronavirus has made the mighty kneel and brought the world to a halt like nothing else could. Our minds are still racing back and forth, longing for a return to ‘normality,’ trying to stitch our future to our past and refusing to acknowledge the rupture. But the rupture exists. And in the midst of this terrible despair, it offers us a chance to rethink the doomsday machine we have built for ourselves. Nothing could be worse than a return to normality.

“Historically, pandemics have forced humans to break with the past and imagine their world anew. This one is no different. It is a portal, a gateway between one world and the next. We can choose to walk through it, dragging the carcasses of our prejudice and hatred, our avarice, our data banks and dead ideas, our dead rivers and smoky skies behind us. Or we can walk through lightly, with little luggage, ready to imagine another world. And ready to fight for it.”-Arundhati Roy

wounded healers

Post by holley » Thu Dec 23, 2021 2:25 am

In your practice may you "perform as beautifully as you can and, in doing so, shine a light on what it is to be human". May you "possess a light touch that can elevate darkness to the realm of stars" remembering that you, yourself, are wounded healers, healing.

Boom

Post by holley » Mon Jan 10, 2022 8:54 pm

"The universe is an ongoing explosion.
That's where you live.
In an explosion.
We absolutely don't know what living is.
Sometimes atoms just get very haunted.
That's us.
When an explosion explodes hard enough, dust wakes up and thinks about itself."
And writes poetry, sings and dances about it.
'Every Day is a god, each day a goddess and holiness pours forth in time."
