We can see from the news that a ferment is occurring. Iranians have for years been demanding an end to theocracy. Myanmar’s dictators have released Aung Saan Su Ki. Tunisians recently insisted on an end to corruption. Egyptians are demanding democracy. Other nations predictably will follow.
You can see that the Chinese leadership is speaking in a manner that is unheard of. Gone is the saber-ratting against Taiwan and here instead are offers to rebuild the homes of people devastated by environmental disasters, acknowledgment that human right need attending to, offers to cooperate with the West.
The people of the West have also been demanding an end to the depredations of a cabal that has been making their lives miserable – invading their privacy, taking away civil rights, pushing them into poverty, etc.
On and on one could go pointing to indications that the people of the world have had enough of arbitrariness, exploitation, and neglect. This surely must be a sign of the times.
I personally don’t think it will be long before this ferment translates into effective action for the people, on the part of the Earth allies and our “unseen friends” from other regions of space and dimensions.
We are emerging as a world, throwing off our chains, and standing forth.
There is a power to our collectively saying “no” – and “yes.” Our “no” and “yes” need not be accompanied by a kick and a punch. It does not have to be said in a way that demeans another. “No” is “no” and “yes” is “yes.” It is saying them that is important and not destroying the opposition.
We are standing forth as a tribe of many colors, if you will, a parliament of peoples, a congress of free and sovereign beings. The time is past for wounding words, slighting actions, and tit-for-tat. The time is past for white men to feel superior to others, for any one religion to feel theirs is the only valid view of God, for any nation to feel that only they deserve a decent life and the rest of us are useless eaters.
We’ve never done anything like this as a world. I think it’s very important that, as we do it, we do it right – without creating fresh victims, more residue, more debts.
This is the time to open a new era, in which every sentient being on this planet deserves consideration, respect and and safety – every man, woman and child, eventually, every animal as well. This is not a time for settling scores. It is a time for acknowledgment and acceptance, allowance and forgiveness. What we do now will set the tone for the new life we’re soon to enter.
For those who are calculating the score they have to settle, let it go. For those who have suffered years of injustice, consider that that era is ending, if it has not already ended. Acknowledgment and recompense will follow.
Consider how important it is what you do next. You are monarch over yourself, not over anyone else. Your time, your life is yours to spend in the very best way. Make us all proud of your choices. Show us a way that all the world can walk, along with you. Don’t join issues. Join hands, voices, and hearts.
