“We look forward to the time when the power of love will replace the love of power. Then will our world know the blessings of peace.” ~ British Prime Minister William Ewart Gladstone
Revolution: a forcible overthrow of a government or social order, in favor of a new system.
For thousands of years, humans have been living, leading, and governing from a belief that power and force of will is the way we create and maintain order. Well, from our current vantage point it appears that this model has simply perpetuated chaos via endless war. Geo-politically and socially our systems value power-over, social status, and the all mighty dollar over community, inclusion, and cooperation. We are stuck in petty win/lose battles artificially constructed over bits of false power. All leading to a sharp rise in anger, hatred, and ideological battles where the sides differ only minutely.
What is a way forward, a way to move out of the stalemate and division? Revolution! The bloodless coup begins on an individual level with a decision to move into our heart centers. We can each begin to diffuse the anger by taking responsibility for our emotions and learning to respond and not react. Seeking to understand another person’s point of view rather than pushing our worldview without reflection. We can choose to understand why we are triggered by another’s words or actions and take charge of healing our wounds.
Revolution of the social structure. Seeking cooperation instead of competition. A rising tide lifts all boats. Change can spread when one by one we engage with a beginner’s mind. Explore our opponent’s arguments with curiosity and a desire to come together. Rise up! Rise up from a distorted egoic third chakra engagement in life to the community-oriented, win/win fourth chakra engagement.
Are you ready for a revolution? Become a change maker, a catalyst, a peaceful revolutionary.
