Syria, Interdependance and Peace.

Awaken the World

Awaken the World


I apologize for posting so little as of late; I’ve been working a lot, and have also been quite under the weather with a cold.  I’ve pretty much just been in a repetitive loop of eat, sleep, work repeat, with a bit of snuggle time with my boyfriend squeezed in whenever we can find a few moments off at the same time.

I’m doing a lot of thinking during this time and I have to admit that Syria is on my mind a whole lot right now. I don’t want a war to happen, I want us to behave like the intelligent , loving  and inter-connected species we are and resolve things with one another without war. My parents were hippies and I was raised (and fully embraced) to be anti-war and anti-violence. I’m not wishy washy about it – I feel that there are times when physically defending ourselves is our only option, but I see it as a last resort and a really sad one at that.

I don’t claim to be a keen political mind, or a greatly educated person, but I do recognize a lie when I see/feel one, and right now we are not only being lied to by our governments, and our media, but in not rising up to put an end to war we are also telling ourselves a massive lie. Supporting corruption and greed is a lie we allow ourselves to tell our Spirit.  It is not Our nature  to stand by and allow injustice, it is not Our nature to standby and to turn a blind eye to the truth, which resonates deeply within all life.

We need to stop killing each other, and start loving each other.

Interdependence IS the solution.


About couleewind

I'm a 41 year old woman from a small city in Alberta Canada. I am whimsical and bitter-sweet and am essentially a marshmallow in a porcupine suit. I collect Pez dispensers and books and I love to talk, although I do tend to be fairly introspective. The sort of content which you will find here will vary depending on the day, my mood and what’s going on in my world or of interest to me. I mainly blog as method of reflecting on my day and on my life at the time of the post. I have a history of struggling with social anxiety and depression, as well as type two diabetes, and through living a plant-based, wholistically centered life I've made great strides in these areas. This blog is meant to reflect where I'm at in my life, and how I'm moving toward creating the life I see myself having in my dreams. I will often discuss, whole foods, meditation, personal growth and my day to day struggles and victories. I am also a highschool drop out who is returning to school at age 42, and a person who lives on a very tight fixed income currently, this will also be reflected in my blog.
