What does this mean… “To Embody the Energies of the Earth?” Another question we can now ask would be… “What are the energies of the Earth?” For me (Greg) there really is only one… Energy! “But!” you say… “What about the Good Healing and creative energies, and the opposite of that…wouldn’t we have destructive energy?” Everything else we can care to describe is on the line between these two judgements. And I say judgements because essentially, they really are… “How so?” you say. Let’s look at my favourite… a volcano. When one erupts we say how bad and destructive it is. What about all those poor animals killed and the destruction of forests and inconvenience we have when planes can’t fly. We are looking at this from a finite perspective of a “Non-infinite Being”. We fail to see how the ash (pulverised rock) creates new layers of nutrient rich soil and changes the landscape… so we could actually say that even an eruption is very creative, if we let go the judgements of what is right or wrong, and good or bad. I wonder how inconvenient it would get if the Earth forgot to let go and held her breath for a while… try it! What happens when you finally let go?
Within us we hold all the energies and we judge them as wrong or right, good or bad. Those we judge as negative we lock down and “try” to control and not let people see. We see the Haka given by a group of Maori, and our Bodies remember and come alive… not because of the spectacle, but because of the energy presented.
What is it we fear about these energies we perceive… loosing control? Being judged as wrong? What if by Embodiment (“Acknowledging” and “Being” these energies) we actually have greater control? What if being these energies we become more self-assured, and become even more Creative. Generative, and then… even begin to thrive?
