The Laugh of the Biosphere

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.

Humanity is a Teenager

When we leaned out into the Embrace of Humanity, I got the image of us being a teenager who has been growing too fast and who doesn’t know her strength or boundaries.

I know that this is an old metaphor, but I haven’t seen it so vivid before.

Humanity being a teenager who is just beginning to understand herself but is not at all ready to take responsibility for others, not even to see them. It’s all about her growth and inner life.

As the Embrace of Humanity, we held all humans and all our relations, unconditionally.

Maybe it will help us to mature on a collective level, perhaps not. But it helps my thinking to evolve.

Embracing One and All at the Same Time

As the Embrace of Humanity, we held all humans and all our relations, unconditionally. Letting the pain of the 80 000 children that have starved to death in Yemen, touch our human hearts.

Recognising that when we hug one human being, as conscious parts of the Embrace of Humanity, we embrace everyone. Holding one person at a time, and all at the same time.

Feeling into the potential of the Wider Embraces concept.
It’s powerful.
