Day 42 - 100 Days #FortheEarth

I want to take all my clothes off. Have you ever spent a thought on what would happen if you stood around naked in the middle of your city? If your only action would be to appear in the world as you once came to it? How long would it take before somebody would react, and what would they do? And what would happen if you kept on refusing to get dressed? 

How far do we go to avoid feeling uncomfortable?

Where could we go if we moved beyond our discomfort? 

If you and I take our clothes off in front of eachother. Piece by piece, slowly and deliberately. When do you start to feel something? Before you've even started? How do you spend the hours before we meet to undress? Do you think back and forth, analyzing and regretting you said yes? 

We are naked now. Carefully, we feel a slight wind touching our bodies. We are outside, the birds around us are singing quite beautifully and the air is warm. There is nothing between us. Our eyes meet, your breath is going a little faster, mine too. I stretch out my hand towards you and you grab hold of it. This is how we stand, facing eachother, naked, breathing. Hand in hand. Over time we start to relax a little more. We both see that it is indeed possible to be together like this. Nothing happens. The birds keep singing. We are two naked human beings. It feels different, yes. But it changes, too. How do you feel now, compared to when you had all your clothes on? 

I am taking all my clothes off. And never before have I felt so devoted in urging you to join me. For this is truly a time for us to start seeing eachother in every way we truly are.

This is a calling to slow down and listen. To take a deep breath and explore our personal connection with Mother Earth. The feminine and masculine, the beautiful and dirty, the real, the messy, the sacred. Once it was natural. Today it feels crucial. 

For the next 100 Days I will write a book to the Earth. For the Earth. With the Earth. The book, and the journey, is also to you. For you. And with you. Together, we are everything.

Love, Åsmund.
