I am trying to steer clear of what is going on in the world right now, I don’t need the negative energy to try and suck me dry. At the same time I try to stay aware of what is going on, then release it so I can clear the space within. I am always trying to find the core issues of problems as many may well know, and what is going on now is no exception. It would take me pages to explain the why and how we got here, so I will just say ‘we are here’. The final battle is being waged and we are witness to it all play out. The rioters and occupiers are a very disturbing element being thrown into the the already surging fire of unrest. Any semblance of a normal reality has literally been blown out the window and we are left standing on ground that is roiling beneath our feet allowing us no balance or security. We are in unfamiliar territory.
So what is going on? I know I don’t think at all like any of the people doing this violent protesting. How can anyone get joy from destroying lives and livelihoods? Well, it takes a massive emptiness within to allow such depravity to take over. I remember the 60’s well as I was a part of that, and we too were looking to belong somewhere, to be heard and understood. The difference being we were all about peace and love and helping one another. What is occurring today is a result of humanities disconnection from self. We have lost vital connections in life that feed our souls and those connections are being replaced by demoralizing indoctrination via television, education and social media. It is insidious, it is weaponized and it is evil. We need to open our eyes and stay awake and aware!
Between materialism on a grand scale and people having little free time to be to themselves because of working 9-5 to survive and a media brainwashing our minds everyday 24 hours a day now, people have zoned out, they feel overly challenged and under prepared for what is going on. Especially the kids, especially the young adults who have essentially been tossed to the wolves at school where they are being indoctrinated, not allowed to think for themselves or pursue their dreams. They have massive holes within that need filling and sadly these violent groups are doing just that. I can see why, it’s just tragic that it is being allowed to continue with no push back from anyone. We have shoved our children out the door and expect them to survive in this dog eat dog world with little support or guidance. Yes they are angry and rightfully so! Money ,power and prestige are first and foremost in our society, NOT families, not communities, and certainly NOT our children.
Until we disengage from the constant distractions being forced upon us and begin to think for ourselves, we will never realize how far off track we have strayed. The riots are a glaring explanation of how we have failed one another by disconnecting from life. Facebook and Twitter etc. may be connecting people but not in a positive way. It is stealing minds and twisting them into oblivion. Connecting can only come from CARING and we have not shown one another that we care for a very long time. We are isolated and alone on separate islands trying to fit in, but fit into what? What do we offer our teens? We turn our backs on our kids the minute we shove them out the door onto the yellow indoctrination buses. The days of mother at home with the plate of warm cookies after school have long since disappeared from our reality. It’s all about texting and living in a digital world now. It is no longer warm a fuzzy, it’s cold and sharp edged and cut throat.
I don’t know how we become close to our kids anymore. We seem to be so far gone at this point. How can we make teenagers feel genuinely wanted and accepted? How can we help them feel they have a safe place to land when they need it? Most importantly how can we make them feel like they belong? That they are wanted and needed? These are all of the missing connections we have allowed to get us to this moment in time. It’s horrifying, it’s incredibly sad and it is very dangerous. Can’t we see at long last that we have to change how we are in the world? We ALL need lessons in re-connection, we must finally reel ourselves back in and stand for some thing that matters. It’s not about money, or power or control over others, that is the dark side’s way of operating. No, it is all about becoming whole again, in our souls, It’s about caring and respecting one another again. It’s time to wake up and face our reality of what we have done or didn’t do and finally get it right. Lots of work to be done!
Blessings and love to all,
