...and Freedom for All

“The moment the slave resolves that he will no longer be a slave, his fetters fall. He frees himself and shows the way to others.” Ghandi

“Like everyone else, you were born into bondage, born into a prison that you cannot smell or taste or touch. A prison…for your mind.” Morpheus in The Matrix

The Occupy movements that are taking place across the globe have given me so much hope and so much faith for the future of humanity. I have always been an idealist, with pie in the sky goals. I have always believed that this society is in need of major changes. Just by reading this blog you can clearly see that I know that things in this world can be better for everyone.

It’s beautiful to finally see millions of souls waking up. It’s amazing to witness the unity that is appearing worldwide. The time for change has come. We have been preparing for this for years, without any doubt that it would happen.  I know, as we all do, that there are many out there who are still asleep. There are countless numbers of lost souls who believe that they are comfortable enough to not pay any attention to what really matters. This is inevitable; there will always be large numbers of souls who are not yet ready to awaken. The best we can do is fight for them, one day, those souls will be found, and they will join us in occupying. 

For many of us, waking up was not our choice, it just happened. For many who are active in these movements have been fighting for us since the day they could express themselves. For many, this movement is what we have been waiting for. Though we mustn’t forget that this society still exists and there are still many prisoners who need to be freed. It is not easy to let go of what you have been conditioned to love. It’s not realistic to believe that these movements will accomplish the change that is needed without much suffering. There will be suffering, and there will be times where our efforts will seem to bring nothing fruitful. We must be patient through these times and we must never let go. The light at the end of this tunnel will be seen, as long as we travel united.

Right now, we occupy, just as the imperialists have occupied our lands for hundreds of years. For now, we slowly take the land back from them, and we give it back to the source. We must remember that this planet does not belong to any of us. We must always keep in mind that we are here to protect her. We must never forget that in order for the planet to sustain us, we must give to her. We cannot do as they did, we cannot repeat the same mistakes or else this will all go in vain. We must never be careless as they are, or else we will fall right into the trap of greed and selfishness. The planet is a soul as we are; we must protect her as much as we protect each other. We are occupying her lands, and we must occupy with respect, peace, wisdom and love. As long as we can continue to remember these truths, she will be kind to us. As long as we give to her more than what we take, she will sustain us. As long as we protect her as we would our own child, she will protect us. Never again can we take what we have for granted. We must not fall into a society of destruction, of waste, of carelessness and greed.  Our ancestors knew this, they knew how to treat the land, and they knew how to love the land. We must remember this, to always count our blessings, and never allow ourselves to fall into disharmony.

Forget about race, about color, about language, about religion, about borders and national anthems. Forget about separating each other by their means. Remember that there was always one source, and that all that we are is souls. We are not our senses, not female nor male. We must remember that we were once inseparable, and that our unity created the brightest light that the universe had ever witnessed. Our unity is what will change the world. Our unity is what will bring peace and justice into this realm permanently. 

We must not be in this for our own personal gains or else unity will not be accomplished. Push your ego aside, and let others speak for you, to you and with you. Give your opinion without expecting others to agree. Take opinions and agree if you truly do, do not use your pride to hide what you truly feel. Live alongside each other without expecting to take anything from each other. Give without wanting to take. Give all that you can and take as little as you possibly need. Live modestly and abundance will appear throughout.  Do not act on judgement. Remember that most of what we think we know has been taught to us by those who imprison our souls. What you know may not be what truth is. For facts are mere words and numbers put together to try to explain things that we will never prove as absolute truth. Keep your minds open, and never allow the structure to be built around your souls. Free yourselves from bondage and opt out of this system of fear and separation. This system of conditions will end and the new ways of unconditional love will begin. Fear will slowly subside and will no longer be the driving force in this world, Love will flourish and bloom and will be the driving force of this new world. 

There is no we and no them. We are the 99%, but remember that the 1% is still a part of us, a part that has broken off, and that needs to be mended back to create the 100%, this will bring lasting harmony…may we be patient, resilient and genuine while we wait for the 1% to join the 99…

With Love
