When in conflict, we tend to think us and them, we are good they are evil. That separation is an illusion. On a deep collective consciousness level, we are one, regardless of whether we believe in it or not. It is like the force of gravity, it is there and always has been even though until Newton we didn’t know about it.
We are one organism and therefore we need to start talking and communicating. We need to let go of vested interests and start working for the highest benefit of everyone involved. I know a lot of people here would comment that it sounds like utopia. I believe it is a very practical way of living.
We can see everywhere how our current way of thinking is destroying the environment, we are killing ourselves. The short sighted, vested interests that led to the prohibition of cannabis, that chose Edison over Tesla, synthetic drugs over herbal medicines, the right to choose our own medicine and the way we want to heal ourselves, continue ruling this world.
Why are we told that other members of our society, the ones in power know what’s best for us more so than ourselves? In this context, do we really live in a free, democratic society or is this just an illusion?
Why do our politicians appear to be stuck in this old narrow minded way of thinking? However, in saying that I don’t think about them from a point of hate or aggression. They are part of this amazing organism called humanity and we are all in it together.
Someone said that our society invests a lot of money to keep us asleep. It is our choice to wake up to who we really are. Waking up applies to everyone, we must evolve and grow.
I believe, we can take the best out of many approaches, we need structure and rules, after all we are not a society of enlightened beings but at the same time the structure needs to be balanced, otherwise it becomes impossible to achieve anything. Going through tonnes of paperwork can be very demoralising.
The excessive red tape is an indication that as a society, we simply don’t trust each other, everything needs to be on paper just to cover ourselves. We need to let go of that. We need to teach our children emotional intelligence, communication, education and awareness. So, they will make the right choices not out of fear of penalty but out of wisdom and connection with who they really are.
Humanity is undergoing huge changes, we are constantly observing the forces of violence, destruction and senseless exploitation of our earth, depression, anxiety, loss of community connection, we are so lonely, we are craving love, we want to be embraced and healed. Where do we go from here?
We need to make choices that serve us and those around us. It is each person’s responsibility to contribute. We need to stand up and in an assertive, peaceful way state loud and clear what we believe in.
I strongly believe in the Gandhi way:
“Be the change that you wish to see in the world.”
