Kia ora kōutou

This morning I happened on a piece from Eckhart Tolle who talked about the opportunity of this "private retreat".

He continued that at this time of collective adversity affecting billions worldwide, the opportunity is for us to pay more attention to our unconscious projecting into the future.

That causes anxiety and suffering.


However, we can do so much in our private retreats.

For those of us working from home, we are adapting to a new way of working.

We still have māhī. I am thankful.

Tolle reminds us that we can use this precious time because we are in a time of awakening the consciousness of humanity.

On the surface this Level 4 lockdown looks like an obstacle to humanity from a conventional point of view, but it is an opportunity to awaken to a higher level of consciousness.

People are reaching out to each other.

Friends are asking how they can help.

My niece in Bali sent us a bone broth recipe which is an immunity booster.


She is also moving her Pilates online so we can join her in our private retreat.

The human condition to create is another opportunity during this time.

We are practising mindfulness.

On a collective scale I find that an extraordinary development.

It is our awakening consciousness.

Our beautiful planet was suffering under the burden of rampant consumerism and lack of mindfulness.

But now the water in the canals in Venice are now running clear.

Pollution in China has decreased.

The fish have returned to the coast of Italy.

This is the new paradigm and the Earth has given us a silver bullet.

It is in our minds where we can make the greatest change to humanity.

Be safe and take care of yourself and each other.
