February has come!
This is the most anomalous, rebel and multidimensional month. It is not only the shortest month, but also a month that changes its duration from time to time! It is also the month of Carnival, the most transgressive festival of humanity.
February comes from the Latin verb “februare”, meaning “purify”. Februus was also the Roman god of purification. The first two days of February since ancient times have been celebrated as festivals of purification with events such as Imbolc, and later the Christian Feast of Candlemas on February 2nd.
Of course, today and the next few days, as well as all the days of February, can be days like many others. Moreover, these measurements of time are arbitrary and from a certain point of view illusory. At the same time your life is regulated by these measurements of time. You wake up at a certain time, work from one hour to another, take appointments based on days and times, etc. So during this unusual month, take advantage of it! Spend time doing something unusual, rebellious, out of the box! Make an appointment with your unconventional side, that part of you that you tend to repress, give it all your attention, and let it out, sharing it with others.
February is the month of purification, and of Carnival. And the biggest purification you can do is to let go of your usual identity, the costume and the mask you wear every day. In short, that costume and that mask need a spring cleaning, need to be washed from time to time!
Put everything in the washing machine and then hang your usual costumes to dry outdoors. And for a few hours or so, stay naked, or wear another costume, another mask! Perhaps the world does not wait for anything else, perhaps this is the opportunity you’ve always been waiting for.
