As the Embrace of Planet Earth, I am what I am right now, unconditionally.
Today I’m a planet with cows and humans.
Some time ago I was a planet with dinosaurs.
Further back I was mainly home to bacteria and algae.
Tomorrow something new.
Though as the Embrace of the Planet, I don’t remember and I have no plans.
My memory is the present moment.
My plan is the unfolding of my next moment.
As a human being inside the Embrace of the Planet, I’m disappointed.
I would like to be guided and led. Being told what to do and not.
Be given some moral guidance.
Though I know the deep difference between the unconditional Embraces and the conditional relations between its parts. The difference between objects and subjectivity, between introrelations and interrelations. Between oneness and separation. We live inside both.
The Biosphere has been through five mass extinctions and is in the midst of the sixth.
But as the Embrace of the Biosphere, I have no memory, no opinions.
I’m just embracing all living beings on Earth, here and now, unconditionally.
As this human being, resting in the Embrace of the Biosphere, I sense all the other living beings around me, and how we are held together.
I can open myself, relax into alignment with everything around me.
Become aligned by the Embrace of the whole.
Resting in the Embrace of the Biosphere.
I’m held As this single, human being.
And all my organs and cells are held as well.
The Embrace of the Biosphere doesn’t favour one level over the other.
Alignment all the way up and down.
As the Embrace of Humanity, we felt lost today, confused and orphaned.
As the Embrace of the Biosphere, we felt solid and firm with our 3,7 billion years long history of life.
The idea that humans are the stewards of the planet and shall take care of the Biosphere, crossed our minds.
Annelie and I burst out into a great laugh.
It’s such a ridiculous and funny idea from this point of view.
