'Conversation with Grief & Water' ~ with Megan Hollingsworth is part of a series of interviews with women and men engaging fully with our collapsing world, our dying systems, our collective grief and with our deep longing to fully participate in our world in ways of soul, imagination and beauty.
These interviews have one thread in common. A message that was given to me by Water on the 2nd of Dec 2016. This message is read to each person in all 'Conversations with Grief' activating a unique response.
Here is the message from Water at the River Dart, Devon, England on 2nd Dec 2016:
" My dear child do not worry about me, Water. I recover quickly with the song of our birds, the love of trees, with movement, moments of rest and the prayers moving around our Earth. I regain balance with your heartfelt tears, your remembered songs added to the ones of so many now. Do not focus your energy on 'Saving me'. Something way more profound is taking place right now, listen and observe!
All of us; Soil, Water, Plants, Air, Animals and all Ancestors are Calling YOU Humans, to Us so we can Save YOUR species. We know and have known for a while that you do not have much time left if you do not wake up to your birthright Belonging to Earth and come Home soon, real real soon. We keep dying, we keep Giving Away our Lives to shake you up from a deep and very long amnesia. Once you can allow the truth and quality of such Love to permeate through your traumatised being and desolate soul you will wake up from a life time of anesthesia to your immense grief and capacity for Love.
When you create containers of sacred beauty that opens your Heart to what Love truly is then you will realise with a massive Sob that you were loved all along, always have and for ever by all of Us who you think You are Saving!
You have five years as a species to Wake up, Mature and Remember in your bones who you are and that you belong in Life "

http://www.SOULand.org: SOULand is a response to our collapsing and transforming world. It is an active prayer to support the accompaniment of what is dying while Making the World of our Longing ~ even if it is to late for our own species… because it is an elegant gesture, of soul, courage and beauty for our Earth and for all Life, it is Soul Activism.
