We strongly believe that the occupation and fight must continue. We cannot afford to pack up and go home. The longer we occupy, the more attention will be brought to the issues including the police and other brutality that is unacceptable. To go home now would be to lose everything we’ve gained so far.
The movement is ready to move to the next level and your help is needed.

Quoted from the Avaaz website:
“The “occupy” movement is catching fire across the world and has achieved a radical shift in the way we think about our politics. Now, the world is asking, how can the movement win?
“From New York to London, politicians and the police have been bought off to protect corporate interests. They are forcibly evicting the peaceful protesters from public spaces and discrediting the movement in the media as “dirty hippies” and “violent criminals” with no clear agenda. It’s not hard to see why they’re so nervous: the occupiers have sparked a vital battle of ideas, and the corrupt, elite 1% stand to lose everything.
“Let’s help the movement win by funding a major global opinion poll in dozens of countries that clearly shows this is not a fringe movement that can be crushed, but a political project with massive public support.
“The poll will supercharge the movement and offer both a united vision and the mass-based public legitimacy it needs to take on and take down the system that feeds the 1%. The need is urgent — 10,000 of us donated in the first 24 hours! If another 10,000 donate now we will be able to run the poll across the world next week and run a huge media campaign to take this battle to the next level!”

Hello To All!
I believe that this movement is spiritual in nature. Sitting in meditation and actively connecting the centers of Occupy with a grid of light will help to spur movement. Non-movement is not a bad thing.
Of course they (Global Elite) has ignored us. They think this will go away. It will not, but will transform. What is next? Something significant. What will it look like? Something they will want to squash. When will it happen? When the timing is perfect. Anger is good, if it does no harm. Karma will do it’s work, it is working fast now.
Connect in your mind the centers where Occupy exists. Flood them with Light. Flood the centers of corporate America, that you know of with Light and see what will happen. Consciousness is tranforming, ride the wave!
I have had many “bad” days of struggle with “what is” vs what I hope for. I, and everyone else on this website understand your struggle, so don’t feel you are different. You do have good days or you would not be here. You do have hope, and dreams for Love and Unity.
Don’t let your dissappointment kill your enthusiasm. I believe the experiment we have been working on here, is no less than to have hope and faith in the power we hold within us to change ourselves and our world, no matter how hard life makes it for us. We have won. We are winning. The world is changing. We are changing. Our hopes and dreams will come true.
On a personal note, if you (all of us) did not have the challenges to our lives, our hearts’ flame would not have the opportunity to expand and grow into a massive, powerful focus of Love and Light that no darkness or challenge can extinguish. Try to see the challenges and the seeming “realness” of this illusion as a way to expand our light and develop our ability to hold the awesome power of an incorruptible, inextinguishable flame and know it as our very own being.
In Love and Unity with your struggle,
I would like to write a full short essay on my thoughts but I need to take advantage of the 45 degree weather here today in Montana to do some outside work. I have a quick one to leave as a starting point for discussion. I haven’t read Barry Rosen’s article yet but the title intrigued me and got me thinking.
To me, consciousness, which I personally define as awareness, is the crux of who and what we are about. We are evolving awareness, constantly refining and redefining awareness. As such, raising awareness/consciousness is why we are here or in any other world or dimension, forever. Therefore, ultimately, that is the center of this world movement called “Occupy”. Esoteric teaching relates the principle that “nature abhors a vacuum”, and that we must occupy space with our presence because that is our purpose. If good intentioned light bearers will not occupy time/space (psychic space/consciousness?), then service-to-self individuals will.
That seems true, as we now see that as the very reason why 1% have been able to rule us for so long. The 99% have refused to take responsiblity for their education and enlightenment and refining their awareness. Therefore, not quoting Jesus, the children of mammon (darkness, wolves in sheep’s clothing) are smarter (wiser) than the children of Light.
The 99% need to take responsibility for their lives and community definition and by our intent and numbers, simply make the elites and elite wannabe’s obsolete. We know what we want for our world and our communities, and it isn’t congruent with their aims.
So, we do need to “occupy”. We need to occupy our own selves, meaning refine our awareness so we can know what we want and not settle for anything else. And, of course, our intent must be in alignment with the Creator’s loving intent for us, and with each member of our community, which is ultimately the world, eventually the universe.
I think the movement will have to allow, being leaderless, that there will be other names and other websites and movements, yet they can all be a part of representing the 99%’s aims. It’s a huge project, and needs many people to contribute for it to succeed. Their is room for seemingly competeing focuses and concepts, that are really complementary. This is just the expression of the unique talents and focus of individuals, which do not detract from the whole, but enhance it. If we each waste energy arguing and fighting over which expression and wording is best, we will only delay the day of unity we all long for.
Thanks for listening.
I so appreciate this article and the video reminder of who we are….masterfully sung by some of most gifted artists. I now understand that all the 99% signs that we are seeing everywhere in the mass consciousness is a reminder of just how close we are, as a humanity, to stepping fully and 100% completely into Unconditional Love – a state of being that provides abundance and nurture for all life….Yes!
Unconditional Love for ALL LIFE. How quickly was the upliftment from the illusion of separation and lack to the True Reality where all is well and all is Love.
I believe it is very beautiful and important for each and all of us (double entendre) to hold this state as we journey daily in the walk of LIFE. The “enemy” has now been welcomed into the sacred Heart of this world into a space of quiet reflection and acceptance of LOVE. Believe in the 100%!
I don’t think they are going anywhere. The eviction articles are old (a lot has happened since nov 15 and 16) …
Kat – These are not intended as “news” or “current” articles but as a selection of views about Occupy’s future. I did however post the article you recommend. Thanks, Steve
… and most of the current info is about how they are refusing to leave camps (google for recent articles, but here is one – http://tinyurl.com/ows-staying-put), or some are in negotiations with their cities to occupy buildings with permission.
In the meantime, while the encampments continue across the country despite the crackdown, OWS seems to be quite aware of its expansion into ”everywhere” and are doing a great job helping promote occupation of foreclosed homes, etc. I love seeing all the angles they’re working even while retaining a presence in the streets.
Just thought I’d mention that the evictions and crackdowns aren’t really having any effect except to help spread the word and build the numbers stronger and the territories larger. I hope people don’t get the idea that OWS is freshly challenged in recent days or something and having to close up shop. This is far from true as far as I know.
I am sitting here thinking about what you have asked and this is what I have come to know. (I will be brief, as I know you are swamped). We have to love ourselves without condition. By doing so, we love all others, to include the police, the 1%, the reptilians; everyone. We have been part of a much larger plan in which we were not told the truth about our power and divinity; intentionally created as a “slave race”. We are waking up.
The occupy movement represents the first stirrings of our awakening… once we actually get up and begin walking around, what then? Polarity will not work. WE ARE ONE. The addictive nature of the human is one that demands a constant refusal of the chemical that feeds our addictions, in order to be free of them… and the chemical is released into our very form/brain whenever we do whatever it is we have chosen as our favorite addiction… it is not always pharmaceuticals, in fact, it is much more deadly… it is anger, sadness, low self esteem… all components of fear. Fear is the opposite of love and the answer to all of these is always the same. Love. We must not hate ourselves, but love ourselves and together with all the other parts of this “divine one” that we are, we will collaborate and discover an answer.
My message is always the same, love. It is a circle, once you forgive yourself, accepting who you actually are, you will love all others. I have many videos and they say pretty much the same thing. I will include them here, if you want to include them as part of your focus on this movement tomorrow..there is no one answer, because there is no one leader, there are many leaders and we have all divined very different looking lives. (I said this was going to be short, sorry…!)
