... after our pillow talk, Sesto and me were wondering how much we (and all of us) are connected to the collective field in these days. We feel and think indeed very strongly! All the more it is important, that we don't drown in our personal struggles and let us and our aspirations not be broken by the breaking news.

We can release the old stories and paradigms that don't serve us any longer. Realizing how much we still can do for others in testing times - brings the insight, that we are not a helpless collective of ordinary people without power.

And I believe this is true for any place in the world!
