I keep being amazed how powerful it is to move through and express the emotions we feel, rather than (what we often have done too much of) suppressing them and letting them stagnate in the body. When we move, feel and express our emotions they release and we transform. This is healing in the most natural form. Allowing what’s in our dark to be brought into light. I love being a witness and a vehicle for these types of processes, capturing the power that they hold with my camera.
This amazing woman took me on a captivating and powerful journey through her inner landscape. Expressing her naked truth in an interaction with nature. The courage she holds and the truth in her expression truly moved and inspired me. So raw, so real. She later wrote a text about her experience and what she was going through at the moment, I’ll share parts of it here in the post. If you want to read the whole piece you find it HERE.
Thank you Margo for your trust in me and for inspiring me. I honour your courage and how you show yourself in the world goddess!
Hard core soil porn
Deeper, deeper into the darkness
Stronger growing to the light
More deeply rooted in the darkness
Opening wider to the light
Like the tree grounded in the soil
Reaching with its branches higher, higher up
How many times did I touch the dead-end?
Close observation leads me to the conclusion that all life comes from destruction,
and without destruction, there is no life.
Let’s take the hummus – black soil, as example.
What else is soil, or so called Mother Earth,
giving birth to all life,
if not product of the decomposition of something else, that existed before?
Annihilation and transformation of life into matter...
In the nature everything is eating each other... constantly.
There is nothing stable,
and balance is simply an equilibrium between eating and being eaten.
Soil represents the entire natural world.
Without soil there is no life.
I am the soil.
How many times do you touch the soil?
The body we can kiss, hug, touch and admire,
but we can not touch the Soul,
unless we slow down and close our eyes.
Soil is the outer o landscape,
and Soul, the inner landscape.
What we do to soil we do in fact to ourselves.
“When we walk, we are aware that the Earth is holding our steps. But Mother Earth is not just below us, under our feet, Mother Earth is inside of us. To think that Mother Earth is only environment outside of us, around us, is wrong. Mother Earth is inside of us. We don’t need to die to go back to Mother Earth. We are already in Mother Earth. That is why we have to learn how to take refuge in her.“
