Social injustice, climate change, war, poverty, hunger…with all of the issues we face here on planet Earth, at times one may feel so overwhelmed that it becomes difficult to pick where to start troubleshooting.
While all the crises we are facing need to be faced, the root of the root of what we are looking at is truly a crisis of consciousness. Society has become polarized by labels, 0s and 1s, black and white, rich and poor, right and wrong, science or spirit. We have become so wrapped up in the name, the “ism”, that it is hard to see the forest through the trees.
If we dissolve the “ism”, we begin to see that there is only the “is”. The “is” being everything that exists, has existed, or will exist. Think of the “is” as the gigantic ocean of the everything, as Rumi said, “you are not a drop in the ocean, you are the entire ocean in a drop”. The ocean is not a he, she, or it…it just is.
For order to come from the chaos, a spiritual revolution must occur, a new type of “gnosis” to dissolve the polarization and to absorb back into the oneness. This revolution will not be televised, this revolution is gentle, calm, still…a revolution that is the evolution of our consciousness. A new understanding of all that is within being a reflection of the outside world, no placing blame on others, or trying to make anyone do anything, only focusing on being the best possible person you can be – so that others absorb your light by proxy.
Be the you-est you, and you will change the world.
