“The nagual is the part of us which we do not deal with at all ... At the time of birth, and for a while after, we are all nagual. We sense, then that in order to function we need a counterpart to what we have. The tonal is missing and that gives us, from the very beginning, a feeling of incompleteness. Then the tonal starts to develop and it becomes utterly important to our functioning, so important that it opaques the shine of the nagual, it overwhelms it. From the moment we become all tonal we do nothing else but to increment that old feeling of incompleteness which accompanies us from the moment of our birth and whichs tells us constantly that there is another part to give us completeness”

Earth’s Contractions


Another jewel from Charles Eisenstein’s Sacred Economics

“It is, for example, a positive feedback cascade of self-reinforcing, self-augmenting hormones that triggers the childbirth process. Childbirth labor is unsustainable–it would kill the mother if it continued too long–but once its goal is accomplished, the mother returns to homeostasis. Positive feedback phases take an organism or ecosystem from an old steady-state phase to a new one.

… Positive feedback processes always hit limits. Earth’s contractions intensify only up to a point–then a baby is born. What we see with alarm as an exponential growth curve is actually part of a phase transition curve.”

Not all births end with life (of mother and/or child). The more prepared, for the unknown intensity of birth, a mother arrives at birth the more likely she is to absorb the intensity and make a transition into the unknown.

In a similar way, the more prepared we are for the inevitable coming transition that will follow the peak of exponential economic growth, the more likely we are to make the transition into the unknown future that awaits us. From our current perspective there is a growing global community of beautiful people doing beautiful things … creating, demonstrating and sharing change and ultimately, readiness. Readiness both expedites and softens the transition.
