year 5 in the 697 Olympic and our winter solsticeMerry xmas and a happy winter solstice and new years eve to you all
Today we witnessed the sun at its lowest flying point of the year in the Northern Hemisphere, a glorious day called winter solstice. It is a juxtaposing day of newborn light and hope as well as the darkest day of the year with the shortest amount of daylight to be seen and felt. Well, in some places there is, of course, no daylight at all.
Here in the Arctic, in the northern winter realms, polar night is in full swing this time of the year and the sun will not reappear in a real and proper way until 2017 have properly taken hold.music of the day

Life, like the winter solstice, is this unfolding string of biological chains, for some, an endless and beautiful field of swaying grass, choke full of options and hope and room for differing opinions and point of views in each gentle breeze and moving tree branch.
But for some, life is but a single chain that provides them with no room to move and evolve, a non-movable object that make it near impossible to change or comprehend that each day set its own layered path of stones.
Or if you so will, each day forge new links in that chain of events that once fully lived, is what will be the life we have chosen to make and for some that is limitless growth and possibilities, but for some that is a linear and hurtful path.
In 2011 the entire galaxy, NGC 4845, suddenly brightened by a factor of a thousand as astronomers watched the unfolding events of a black hole awakening from decades of slumber to slowly taste and sensuous merge with a nearby celestial object over the course of several months.
Celestial objects that sort of made love on a galactic seismic scale.
You might wonder what a distant, far away love sick galaxy has to do with life for you and me as we stand here, proudly beneath the winter sun, tucked knee deep in snowy fields of starry nights.
But the light of that far away and brightly burning galaxy do paint our everyday life every second of every moment. It is for all eternity what greets our good mornings.
It perpetually shines its auburn light at night, and it touches life itself.
It grows it. Or burn and melt it.
It do so here on earth, as well as on countless of other planets.
So today we are counting down towards the summer. We do so while we hear the call of the wild as we rapidly approach year 5 in the 697 Olympic. And soon the sun will float majestically across the sky once more.
But for now, we have the northern lights, the winter sun and polar night to provide us with unbridled amounts of winter beauty.

And yet, as grand as that is, and it certainly is, it might not have any real significance to your life in the big apple or the plain fields of Kenya. And that is perfectly okay to think and feel.
Life is always what we make it out to be, it is as beautiful as we choose to view it. Packed full of unlimited potential, but life is also as limited as the walls and views we and others create around us through our everyday journey.
Life is your art, through and through that will always hold true. We are a global and conscious spieces, and the time has come to act like it. But we can never forget that we are all individuals, and as such we all have to enjoy a healthy life.
So no matter how your own journey is unfolding, we all share that seed that we can choose to plant every single day.
We can all choose to make a better tomorrow or to make life even less.
We can all choose to allow the slaughter of innocent people and endangered animals, not because it makes any sense at all to anyone, but because it is just how it is, according to some that is.
Or better yet, we can all choose to acknowledge that it is completely and utterly selfish and meaningless, a futile exercise in stupidity, fear, superstition and narrow-minded views with no real reason at all for it to take place at all.
Because that is how it is, injustice will always happen, but not because it should or have to. Injustice only exists because some are willingly putting their blinders on, and thus, giving that negative cause and effect room to exist.
Some will always choose to not see and touch the grand beauty of life, willingly ignoring the mesmerizing beauty that you hold with your hopes and wishes and needs.
Some will only see the lake of lacking light and perpetual darkness that is the winter solstice, and that is 100% okay.
People are free beings of emotional and intellectual river beds. River beds that fluctuate with the ebb and flow of life. We grow, evolve, change, learn and forget as completely individual islands, and that is how it needs to be.
But while some will only see the lack of light in the deep polar night, plenty more will see the life and the riches and glorious light and wonders that you can only find in the night and light of the winter solstice and its long lasting polar night.
Unsolved, yet, just hinted at, but not yet fully grasped possibilities and beauty. Because that is what the dark winter is. It is not a place void of life and beauty, it has endless amounts of it, they just look in a slightly different way than what we see in the summer and spring.
But life is abundantly rich with undiscovered treasures.
Such as life on other planets, sustainable energy, less wars and famine.
Some see the dangers in autonomous vehicles, and the jobs that will be lost. But some see the potential for a better world for all of us.
Some see a world not poisoned by short-sighted personal greed.
A world where people live longer, healthier, happier lives.
A world where we do not wipe out other species to feed ourselves their horns as we prey to lacking and selfish, even hateful and depriving gods that, even if they do exist, never cured or cared for anyone's cancer.
Well, life is all that. And life has room for all those different kind of people.
It is beautiful in all the chaotic and ever-evolving existence that is life for us all, life is always beautiful.
You might not see it, or be capable of appreciating it today. But come tomorrow, you just might see life for all that it is. When the industrialization happened in Europe and America terror and fear spread through the population with the least, the lower classes, the workers that faced increased poverty. All the ones that felt sacrificed and tossed to the side by that times Donald Trumps. They feared, revolted and caused harm and violence due to how they felt exploited and used up by the political and financial elite.
That was the cause and effect of that time. And the solution was not increased injustice and poverty, the solution was inclusive societies, people being able to live better lives, people being embraced and brought into a more fulfilling life.
The industrialization itself caused immense harm of course. And countless of people were indeed sacrificed by the Donald Trumps of that age and time.
But that was then and now is now.
And we do have to learn from what happened between the years of 1894 and the end of world war 1. Unemployed and angry workers murdered their way through Europe and America during that time. And the road forward is of course not increased injustice or a step backward towards the many issues and unhealthy industries of that time. That era had its own day and now the time is here to move forward. Into a healthier world, that also happens to be a far more inclusive world.
As we approach year 5 in the 697 Olympic ( 2017 ) it might be a good time to remind yourself that all the various cultures and religions, all the various scientific ideas and new found fields that have passed beneath the bridge of time, they have all, at times been the growing room for stupidity and narrow-minded views.
But most of them, perhaps all, have also been the growing room for grand ideas, open minds with views and bright souls that continuously work towards bettering life and society.
So no matter the current state, there are riches in life's still untold tomorrow, to be shared and enjoyed equally by us all.
By you and me.
You are of course free to restrict and limit life, to make it less as we still dance in the light of the winter solstice.
But you are also free to tap right into life's every potential and make it as beautiful as its ever could be for you and everyone else.
You are free to dance in the dark and light of the summer and winter solstice and make it whatever your secret inner dreams thinks that life truly should be for us all.
You are free to do that all while that distant light from far away suns and galaxies bounce around, touching us all down here and far away on other planets and species in this vast ocean that is life.
What you can not be free to do is to impose a life diminishing will on other human beings, however. That is not how you improve life, and that is not how to be a good human being.
ISIS, racism, bigotry, poverty, air pollution, fossil fuel choices instead of a clean and sustainable future, abusive religious views, FGM, honor killings, cancer, and Alzheimer's those are all found in the same pool of ancient history and hate, sickness and illness that we all need to leave behind us.
But you know what.
That is exactly what year 5 in the 697 Olympic will do, provide us with one more stepping stone towards a better future that contains less of all those bad and ancient old things that we are slowly leaving behind us.
2017 will of course also provide us with one more year to think real hard about how we make sure to not leave individual human beings behind as we progress away from fossil fuel and old school economy towards those better options.
Because we can not pollute our air and water, soil and food anymore.
Billions of people suffer due to that. Bad health, and shorter lifespans, poverty, ever increasing risks for decades to come. The time has come for us all to face the music of reality.
But as we do that, we can also not discount the risk of poverty and the severe unhealth that leads to. No one can overlook the fear that all the billions of people are facing as we progress away from that old world of hate and unhealthy choices.
So as we march onwards to a better society where cars safely drive themselves without hurting our lungs and health, as we place one more stone towards clean and healthy energy production that does not damage the air we breathe and the water we drink, we also have to make sure that we do not repeat the sins of our forefathers and simply toss all the actual human beings that are affected on the graveyard of progress.
We all need a healthier world. I think everybody on this planet actually knows that no matter what party they belong to.
But a healthier world is always a world that provides much better for all of us.
And that is what 2017 is, that is what today's winter solstice really is, and that is what autonomous cars, tesla, hyperloop, healthy food, better food distribution, better elderly care and healthy schools and workplaces really are.
Clean fusion, ever improving solar power, reduced pollution, less wasteful organizations, less poverty, less unhealthy food, better water production, and distribution.
That is our future, and we are already living in it.
But we are also living in a time where some are still kicking on sick and injured, turning their backs on war-torn areas and the old and poor. Like an endless tale stuck on repeat they are choosing to repeat the sins of the fathers.
We are still living with the oak of religion and class. People are still killing their sisters and lovers, and others, for their families and religions perceived honor. When in fact what they are doing is something that is both terribly inhumane and weak, and hateful, cowardly acts of hate and violence that shame their own families and life for all eternity.
We are still living with unhealthy red meat farms and lacking health care and an entire health industry focused on making money instead of actually curing real people. We still have people that believe that their fantasy-based religious ideas and political party lines are more important than actual human beings getting proper, science-based health care and fulfilling, healthy lives to live.
So no, we are not yet perfect. And we all know that.
But we are and will continue to slowly become better as long as we do not forget that the future is about our collective heart and humanity walking hand in hand with real and actual science and facts.
The future´s never been about illusions and myths and deprived lives.
It is not about delusions and made up ideas that are stuck in the past. Our global and individual future will always be about real evolving change and making life on and beyond Earth better and healthier for us all.
So from me to you, a merry xmas and a happy winter solstice to you all.
Enjoy the new year and make sure to make the next year better for yourself and everybody else too.website versionhttps://www.anorseview.com/?q=23-4-life-amongst-flowers
