After taxi revelations of my projected spirit last month I decided to take Scotland for a long walk, enquire what the deal was. I have been living in this country since 2006. Although I didn’t really know ‘why’ I came (apart from the obvious reason of starting a new job) I felt that somehow I was meant to be here. After few futile attempts to leave or re-locate, I have stopped pushing against my cosmic intention and arguing with what the ‘outer’ reality was telling me: that Scotland was somehow part of my soul purpose. Since 2012 I was acutely aware the purpose involved Scottish Independence. And there are perfectly logical reasons why I would relate to this concept but do they explain my passion? I don’t really care more about Scotland than I do about any other country, Queen Russia, King USA and other rooks and pawns in between included.
Of course I resonate with full autonomy because independence and freedom are integral and very empowering aspects of my personal life. Secondly, independence is a natural stage or unfoldment of any maturing spirit but also collective evolution of any society. From my point of view independence for Scotland is just a natural way forward, aligned with ‘direction’ (or multidimensionality) of evolution and expansion. Digging deeper I found the underlying ’cause’ of my determination: the ever present agenda of my soul to re-balance nations and disarm respective countries. Somehow, my non-logical aspects see Scotland as playing a pivotal role in balancing the ‘male’, collective Western thought and introducing currency glocalization which would bring realisation of my agenda closer to our experience. For that, Scottish Independence is a pre-requisite.
Scotland’s is an inspiring journey because it is seemingly striving to create something totally new which stands against its cultural efforts (and a great deal of monetary investment) to preserve history or ‘bring past to life’. However, today it stands much stronger than it did in September 2014, the intention of empowerment is spread wide and well grounded. Outburst of patriotism and loudspeakers did a great job last year, perhaps strategic planning will round the numbers next time. Of course, birthing of new reality would require a major shift in our thinking – we would need to start seeing ourselves in context of the world rather than that of Britain. Our social reforms would need to match innovation seen in Scotland’s sciences and technology. We would need to look beyond Scottishness and into more cosmopolitan attitudes and connections. All that is already here, sitting with people of Scotland.
Naturally, some say I should put my dream of Scottish passport on the top shelf, slot it between Greek myths and children’s stories. Yet, I still hold it gently in my hands, study its verses with loving attention, curious if it becomes clay in my hands, which, shaped by many, could become a reality experienced by all. Impossibility? Creativity at its best, aye say!
