As I see it, in a sense our culture, our society, is dissolving. We’re entering collectively a chrysalis. Structures we’ve come to rely on and identify with are breaking down. And we don’t know what the next phase will be like. Things that we thought were not going to change are changing, and the new form isn’t clear yet. So we’re in this cocoon as a species. There’s climate change. There’s huge change that’s coming very fast. Learning to surrender, to let go in our own lives, in the space of the unknown, is essential to our collective learning to move through this time.
