How do we bring about change in one another? How do we make the world a more loving and creative space? What is the answer to the question of what or who will change the world? The funny thing is the answer isn't far-fetched or some equation that only two people know. Michael Jackson sang about it, most spiritual leaders speak on it. It is simple, it is profound, it is layered, it is multi-dimensional… it, the thing that can change everything is you loving you, fully and without condition.
The trick is that it isn't about helping others in the way we have seen it done historically; it isn't about resisting what is. It is about steadily opening yourself up to what is. About accepting your world and seeing it, truly. It is about learning what you filter and why… who you are and how you came to be. It is about sharing that information with those around you and receiving others as they do the same. When you begin to accept you let go of what should or shouldn't be. This is where it gets big: when you stop denying you are able to receive what the truth behind the tragedy, the horror, the struggle and the confusion is. There is opportunity to find what you need to know everywhere around you. Most people have been taught that certain things should not exist, though they do, so those things keep happening because no one is actually seeing these things as truths, purposeful truths. Instead we turn away from the horror and condemn it as evil. We see tragedy and say that this was not supposed to happen. We hear pain and we turn away from it, saying it is wrong. How do we learn, then, from what is happening, if we deem it a mistake and pay no mind?
What is wrong? What is tragedy? What is acceptance? How do we learn about the human spirit? How do we discover unity? How do most people realize they are like others? These things, these lives that come and these lives that go, these moments that change us forever, they all have reasons. Some are discovered immediately and others are looked at best in conjunction with other similar happenings. Until we learn that it isn't about changing others we will constantly be forced inward to deal with you. There is a method to the madness, seriously… and this is where the layers start to peel back. There is a grand show being put on for your benefit. It is like an amazingly lucid and super-duper long lucid dream. Now it is your turn to switch it up, take control of what is happening and decide what is or is not necessary for a world full of love.
Until you accept where you are, where this world is, ain't nothing gonna change. This work I am suggesting you do takes love. You have to love yourself, you have to want love to be the driving force behind all things instead of the fear that moves most of us now. It isn't rocket science, it is bigger than that. Loving who you are, working on being the love you truly are on a moment to moment basis, is harder than anything anyone could do outside of yourself. You will have to accept your judgments, you will have to accept your shit. You will have to truly find compassion for all things and behave accordingly in order to change the world. You can do it, we all can, we all will.
The revolution is love.
