#039 Gratitude transforms
Persist in your transformation
Are you building a new habit? Practicing a new skill? Reflecting on how to deal with some change in life? Giving yourself time to heal? Last day of the 13-day cycle of the Blue Hand, our third wave, on its transcendence. How was it for you? I focused on manoeuvre COVID, and now finally that I am feeling recovered. The daily kin is #039 Blue Cosmic Storm guiding us, once more, through the concept of self-generation. Gratitude is the time orientation that transforms and allows us to observe with love and happiness our journey until here.
Time traveler's party
Did you know that Stephen Hawking hosted a party for time travelers in 2012? I visited him through this picture many times since then. Time, by the way, was the theme to which Stephen Hawking dedicated his life and work. And the movie “The Theory of Everything” takes us through the subject in a lovely way, whether you're a cosmology geek or a lover of medieval poetry. ;)
The movement of the stars is one of the most traditional ways for humanity to observe the passage of time. The moon's phases — and the moon's influence on nature around us — are a prime example. Years ago, I was introduced to this lunar calendar by my friend André Pollux and I was absolutely fascinated by the visual construction. How about having one at home?
Design with time
I love how my friend Ted Hunt produces his work around time. As a critical designer, he knows how to bring good questions to the conversation. I'll share here this compilation he calls "an argument for fourth-dimensional thinking that is really in sync with what we've been talking here. I am happy to say that soon we'll be both talking at the conference Primer 2022 in Amsterdam focused on "The Experience of Time".
The below conversation between School of Critical Design co-founder Gemma Jones and critical designer Ted Hunt and was documented concurrently with the event Design with Time as part of the ReDesign Business talks series during London Design Festival 2020. The pre-recorded introduction to the conversation is now documented at x-AXIS.
I shared recently about Time as flowing river, one of the concepts I bring during my Temporal Workshop. I am pleased to see today's illustration from Javir Royo on Instagram, called "Life". Synchronicities coming from the same field to touch us. :)
Time Traveling Hipster
The main image illustrating this post is known as "The Time Traveling Hipster", a stylish time traveler studying the past. On the Internet, there are several compilations of possible similar moments in human history when time travelers were possibly recorded, like this one and this one.
How is your relationship with time?
We are also completing the second sequel of 20 kin around the Tzolkin. I've been learning a lot sharing with you about new beginnings (Red Dragon), other temporalities (White Wizard), and healing (Blue Hand), as the main themes during the last 3 waves we started together. Now that we are about to start a new one, I would like to ask to you: how can I help with your own relationship with time? Write to me with your feedback, suggestions, comments, and ideas, dear traveler. I will read and answer every message.
Thanks in advance!
