UP THERE

WE ALL WANT TO BE FREE UP THERE… BUT HOW ABOUT DOWN HERE ON EARTH?

Times like these show us how big the influence of our imaginary child is. It seems easier to dream than to deal efficiently and with discipline with new challenges.
Non-realistic solutions which of course need to be effectuated by others, pop up easily. As does the art of complaining and projecting responsibilities on others. This illusory innocence covers how difficult it is for us to deal with a new situation in a simple, focused, calm and responsible way, how much resistance we have to be here on earth when challenges show up.

The imaginary child in us doesn’t like discipline, doesn’t want to confront a situation he perceives as an intolerable limitation of his freedom, with common sense. He wants to keep on dreaming of better times, of solutions brought by others, of finding responsible persons outside himself.

It is mindblowing how a tiny little virus can shake our human world and lay bare its weak spots. Life is so surprising. It can’t be predicted. Every new situation is an opportunity to learn. And some lessons are really tough. But who promised you that life was going to be easy?
