I’ve been thinking about this time that we’re all experiencing together in terms of incubation. It reminds us that while it may appear like we’re doing nothing in the eyes of capitalism, we’re actively nurturing the new world into existence. Incubation allows us to observe the destruction that capitalism has on this living, breathing organism we exist on, as well as the bodies we exist within.
The world over, we’re being forced to do the exact same thing. This virus, like Aquarius, doesn’t discriminate. It takes everyone into consideration, everywhere. No one is spared. Therefore as we look at the world, and ourselves, from the inside out a consciousness shift is occurring. History shows us that major, fundamental changes in society, in how people think and what we think about is almost always accompanied by a collective event that forces the transmutation. It’s also often accompanied by great resistance from those who hold power.
This incubation means that Capitalisms’ biggest fear can be realised: when our forced participation is halted we have time and space to ask legitimate questions such as, “Why do we work to live and eat?” “Why are we contributing to systems that hurt us and the planet?” “How do we deconstruct the old and build a more inclusive, equitable, respectful new?” Whether you’re dependent on capitalism or capitalism is dependent on your poverty (financially, spiritually or mentally), the instability and inequality is being exposed and affecting everyone.
