This morning I woke up and discovered a new colony of ants in our kitchen. I stopped Stefan from killing them and first sat down to address them in my meditation. I love ants, they are beautiful creatures, they are clean, they have an amazing organisation and collaboration. And I love their sensitivity to energetic currents. I tell them so but then show them in my mind that they can’t be in the house and that the human inhabitants of the house, we or others, will kill them if they do so. They only have to move to the other side of the thin wall and then they are outside in the garden and totally free to live where they want and even be appreciated. Then I wait and listen whether they have something to say.
And an answer comes: “ Who do you think you are?” they say. “Do you think you can can influence the time and circumstances of our death? Don’t you know that it is already perfectly determined by a Higher intelligence than your little brain? What an arrogance! And only because you like to see yourself as good! You are a killer and you have to acknowledge your dark side without judgement. You have to take your place and play our role in the big pattern of Life without your poor judgement.
I remember I have read something similar in the Bhagavad Gita many years ago.
I start cleaning the kitchen thoroughly and kill the ants which are still there. Thanking them for helping me to accept my dark side.
