23. september. herbst-tag-und-nacht-gleiche. das ende des sommers. eine zeit der kosmischen balance und zugleich der veränderung. hexen feiern die göttin in gestalt der mutter … und auch den gott, der sich auf tod und wiedergeburt vorbereitet.

der nun beginnende herbst gilt als gute zeit, um bilanz zu ziehen. für alles gute des jahres zu danken und die projekte des nächsten jahres zu planen.

was für ein magischer tag, was für eine magische zeit!

und … der tag, an dem ich voraussichtlich nach athen fliegen werde. dich wiedersehen werde. … <3 ...

pain

“Schmerz ist unvermeidlich. Leiden ist eine Option.” – Haruki Murakami

“Your pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding.
Even as the stone of the fruit must break, that its heart may stand in the sun, so must you know pain.
And could you keep your heart in wonder at the daily miracles of your life, your pain would not seem less wondrous than your joy;
And you would accept the seasons of your heart, even as you have always accepted the seasons that pass over your fields.” – Kahlil Gibran

pits & breakdowns

Just as the pit is the source of life for the fruit, breakdowns are the source of life for the relationship. Not just your relationship with him or her — but your relationship with everything and everyone, including yourself.

Nature is intelligent. Fruit is designed to be sweet and tasty because it attracts animals (us included) who eat them and carry them far from the tree and either drop them or poop them out and the seeds or pits go into the ground and grow new trees. This is nature’s doing. Nature is drawing us in so that we can help it to procreate.

Also, by our nature we are drawn to relationships because of the sweetness we naturally crave to experience. But that is just what draws us in. Just as the fruit draws us in to forward its own procreation, relationships draw us in by their own sweetness so that we will come to the pit, experience breakdowns, discover ourselves and be forced to evolve…

So the point behind all of this is that there is no use in resisting it. Breakdowns are designed to happen. They are meant to happen for the purpose of our own evolution. So let them come, celebrate them, cherish them and let them be a source of life. Welcome them, instead of letting them be a source of destruction, stagnation or de-evolution by resisting them.
