Wall of Berlin as a Symbol of Reunification
and Freedom – Separation is an Illusion
Last year, my dear friend Nancy gave me as a souvenir from her trip to Germany an original piece of the Wall of Berlin. It brought me so many memories from the day the wall fell! I remembered when I was studying International Relations and professors were coming to University with their books under their arms without knowing what to say since everything was changing so rapidly in those days!
During my studies, from 1987 to 1992, so many things happened. It was the end of the Cold War, the dissolution of the Soviet Union (USSR), the end of the KGB and Mikhail Gorbachev’s Perestroika, the introduction of Glasnost (a time for “openness”) and the reunification of East and West Germany. All these events, among others, represented greater freedom to people, which led to major changes in the global configuration.
November 9, 2014 marked the 25th anniversary since the fall of the Berlin Wall. I recall looking at the wall’s demolition as it was happening… it’s amazing how fast time passes by! This past Sunday, 8,000 balloons were released to the sky in commemoration of this occasion.

This symbolic event is a great representation of the White Mirror archetype, reminding us that walls are just an “illusion”.
As Pope Francis said, “Where there is a wall, there is a closing of hearts. We need bridges, not walls”. Hopefully, this message will spread in the hearts of all so we can continue letting go of walls that block our freedom and happiness, personally and collectively!

In Lak’esh means “I am another yourself!”, a Mayan greeting that recognizes the Divine in each living Being. It’s a message of Unity that reminds us that, when we give, we are also receiving. In this way, the Mayan honored and respected each other, reinforcing the belief that we are all interconnected: what we do to others and to our environment will also affect ourselves in the end…
Munay means both ‘Love’ and ‘Beauty’ in Quechua, the language of the Incas. Munay, translated as ‘To love’, is one of the three principles of the Andean way.
