When Circumstance change before we expect them to, the reality we built crash, we feel shattered. Left with beliefs, assumptions, interpretations, priorities and commitment pieces, we can create something that might be one of the most valuable things to come up with - a new perspective

Most parents are willing to step out of their comfort zone, some might even push beyond their boundaries and ‘non-negotiable’s to ensure a better world for their children. Comfort and safety are primary considerations for all parents. However, life is unpredictable, and even in the most controlled environments, unexpected events and Black Swan phenomena can occur.

Avoid Change

Some of the most personally valuable things are ubiquitous and sometimes may be invisible to us. The busier we become, the more we lose touch with the spirit that animates us. This can happen with our families too. We are biologically wired to feel at least a subtle strangeness around them. We become more self-aware and may feel odd, wired, weird, and overwhelmed in their presence. It’s not that we take them for granted, although it may feel like it when we inadvertently push them away. The subtle feeling of being overwhelmed can be particularly acute for teenagers. Life-changing experiences such as tribal initiation, military service, deep meditation, Kundalini rising, and various other experiences that contribute to heightened awareness and individualization may help us navigate these complex emotions. This discomfort lies at the root of our interpersonal existence and is at the heart of all narratives and fables.

The Cosmic Symphony Unleashed: A Visionary Painter's Masterpiece. In the heart of the Renaissance era, amidst the profound discoveries of Copernicus and Galileo, lived a painter whose brushstrokes were as daring as their dreams. A dear friend of these pioneering minds, this enigmatic artist found inspiration in the profound revelations about the cosmos and its influence on the navigation of our lives. Imagine a sprawling artist's studio, bathed in the golden glow of candlelight, where ancient manuscripts of astronomical knowledge and sketches of celestial bodies adorn the walls. Easels stand tall, canvases stretch wide, and the air is thick with the scent of linseed oil and pigment. Our visionary painter stands before an imposing canvas, the size of which mirrors the grandeur of their ideas. With eyes that gleam with an insatiable curiosity, they prepare to create their magnum opus—the masterpiece that will bridge the gap between science and art, philosophy and spirituality. In this creation, the painter seeks to capture the essence of Copernicus' heliocentric model, where the sun reigns supreme at the center of the universe, and the planets dance in elegant orbits around it. But this artwork transcends mere astronomical representation. It delves into the intricate relationship between cosmic revelations and the navigation of human destinies. The artist's palette resembles a celestial sphere, filled with vivid pigments that mirror the hues of distant galaxies. Blues that echo the vastness of the night sky, fiery reds that reflect the intensity of celestial bodies, and shimmering gold that represents the cosmic harmony discovered by Galileo. With each stroke of the brush, the painter breathes life into the canvas. The sun, the radiant center of the cosmos, emanates a luminous brilliance that illuminates the entire painting. The planets, swirling in graceful arcs, seem to transcend the canvas, inviting viewers into a cosmic ballet that mirrors the dance of fate and free will. In the corner of the artwork, a portrait of Copernicus and Galileo gazes upon the cosmic symphony with a mix of awe and pride. The painter's tribute to their dear friends, whose discoveries forever altered humanity's understanding of existence and the capacity to recalibrate one's journey. As the artist's hand moves with a sense of purpose, a mesmerizing spectacle unfolds. The Empedocles, a mystical figure from ancient times, emerges from the confines of the celestial spheres. Breaking through the crystal spheres that once encapsulated the heavens, Empedocles embodies the spirit of human curiosity and the courage to explore uncharted territories. The painting, Empedocles Breaks through the Crystal Spheres, becomes a reflection of the painter's own journey—a daring expedition to merge art, science, and the mysteries of the universe. It symbolizes the never-ending quest to Recalculate our place in the cosmos, embracing the changes that shape our lives while navigating the unexplored horizons of existence. This captivating visual masterpiece stands as a testament to the power of the human spirit—where art and science unite to inspire generations, evoking wonder and curiosity in those who behold it. As we stand before this monumental artwork, we are reminded that the universe is vast and ever-changing, and that our ability to Recalculate is what propels us to transcend boundaries and embrace the infinite possibilities that lie beyond the stars.

When it Finally Occurs

Life is constantly evolving, and what once worked for us may no longer align with the new opportunities and challenges that arise. We recalibrate when the universe changes our circumstances. Like a seasoned navigator adjusting their course in uncharted waters, we too must reassess our direction, beliefs, and choices in light of changing currents. We are all seasoned travelers, this ubiquitous and invisible fact may sometimes escape our notice.

Recalculate and Recalibrate

The act of recalculating and recalibrating invites us to rediscover ourselves, sometimes by encountering something unexpected that sheds light on aspects of our lives we’ve been questioning. This is an opportunity to choose who we want to be, reevaluate our core values, and focus on the fundamental questions that shape our existence. We get to challenge our beliefs and interpretations, question the validity of our current commitments, and gain fresh perspectives on our business ventures and relationships. All of this happens while we experience a multitude of sensations, feelings, and emotions, which can be categorized as a heightened state of being. Some may feel comfortable in this state, while others might resist it. Nevertheless, it is existentially important to make the best of it.

Stepping back to examine our behaviors with a discerning eye, pausing the hustle of daily life, and observing the rest of the world in a kind of a freeze state are part of the process of opening up. What aspects have been overlooked or overshadowed by daily routines and preoccupations? Where have we become too fixated on certain things that hinder our growth and prevent us from embracing new possibilities? The act of recalculating encourages us to find balance, make conscious decisions, and align with a new version of ourselves.

As we look towards the future, what most of us perceive as a challenging task can suddenly seem much easier in a moment of clarity. This enhanced understanding will allow us to envision where we want to be in a month, five or ten years from now. What should change in our lives to make them more desirable? Imagining the environment and lifestyle we aspire to, daily activities we enjoy, and services we can provide to others becomes part of a fluid dialogue with our inner selves. By delving into our futures, we gain clarity about what truly matters to us.

However, just knowing where we want to go is not enough; we must also identify the obstacles that stand in our way. What aspects of our current reality hinder the realization of our vision? Which habits or actions are incongruent with our aspirations? And what recent revelations have surfaced that show us alternative paths to achieve our goals, perhaps in ways we never expected?

Recalculating is not a one-time event; it is an ongoing process of self-discovery and growth. As the universe continues to change, we must remain adaptable and open to reassessing our course. Embracing the unknown with a willingness to recalibrate our beliefs, actions, and outlook on life allows us to move confidently into uncharted territories. So, take a moment, recalibrate, and embark on a journey towards a more fulfilling and authentic existence.
