The trash out is a reflection of the trash in

I reflected on this a couple years ago – returning to Belgrade after spending some time away, I was taking a walk by the Danube between Usce and Zemun…

I was shocked and really deeply disgusted by the amount of trash on the floor, on the river side and in the water… it was really a physical feeling of disgust…

Going on with my walk, what came to mind is that the trash outside was a reflection, a mirror view of the trash inside…

The physical feelings of disgust led me to perceive the nature of the trash inside as emotional trash, in the sense of, emotional burdens from the past, from recent past, all the way to ancient past – past trauma, all forms of abuse, aggression, suffering, abusing, being abused, being witness of abuse, all that carries a heavy, trashy load of emotions which is literally an inside pollution – just in the same way as trash on the ground and all around is outside pollution.

I felt like this trash laying all around was almost a cry for help – something showing on the outside, what’s going on inside and how critical it is, how disturbing and damaging the level of pollution is.

It made it clear to me that, as much as we keep picking up the trash on the floor, it seems to just keep coming back – the way to get out of this insanity and pollution, to STOP creating the presence of trash on the landscape, is to release, clear away, remove the inside trash, the emotional pollution, the emotional, traumatic burdens…

People who are emotionally clear within themselves not only have a taste for a clear outside environment, but it is what they create, what they generate…

That is my take to environmental and emotional pollution…
to environmental and emotional healthiness and clarity 🙂

Dedicated to Emotional Mastery for myself and all those who want it, I know we can make a difference, the tools, processes and abilities are there, the guides and support are there – we can create a healthy environment within, and all around us… THERE IS HOPE!

PS – as I put the final touch to this article, comes the thought that it is all about not only the environment as our landscape, habitat and living conditions, but the same goes to the whole of our environment… media and entertainment environment, political environment, social environment…. reflections apply all the same… and we know what to do to change and improve it all, just the same. there is, indeed and beyond all appearance, great hope available.
