Have you ever considered the difference between “normal” and “natural”? although the two words are often used interchangeably, they have very different meanings. Normal is conforming to the standard, typical or expected. Natural, on the other hand, is existing in nature, not caused or created by humankind. Then again, I can always argue everything I say as human language is so limited for me. One could argue that humankind IS part of nature but I think you get the picture as far as the point of considering that everything “normal” might not be particularly desirable.
I am, by no means, implying that everything “normal” is negative. There is much beauty all around us we can put our focus on and create more of. The course of change in each of our individual lives is directly affected by our reactions and contributions to the situations around us -- something I definitely need to remind myself of regularly.
This season of Mabon, Halloween, Samhain, and Dia De Los Muertos invites us to play a little more in the realm of the supernatural. Do you have celebrations and practices that uplift you? Were there practices in your past that might be fun to incorporate again today? Perhaps something new is more appropriate for the way you wish to change things in your world. However you choose to observe special holidays, or not, I honor you!
