Here we are in the fire of life. Society in 2017 didn’t just happened, it evolved over time into what we can call crazy. So lets not be confused on why we are here, rather lets stand and act towards a better future.
The only problem: crazy loves to double down. This is one reason it’s hard to out crazy crazy.
Likewise when repressive leaders begin to feel weak: they double down in the hate and oppression. Heaven help us as we now have crazy repressive leaders doubling down upon doubling down.
Right now people are standing up in power, resisting oppression and hate. The reason I can safely say we are at a historic point is exactly because we are seeing oppression being doubling down by leaders. This is a pivot point in history. How people react to it, does shape the future and we have more say in that future than we might think.
So don’t be worn down by the waves of oppression doubling down over the next 6 months. Avoid being weakened by this tactic. In martial arts I teach students to use another person’s energy against them. As a person doubles down, change up your game, shift to the side and then trip them up against their own double down energy.
Understand that the doubling down we are beginning to see is a good sign that people are being successful in making a difference.
Double Back to your core strength. Don’t let the times double down you into depression, non action nor giving up your power.
Be smart to use the energy of the times to literally dance around the crazy. The only way to out crazy crazy is to double back and double up into your own life. We have to celebrate life and push living to be brighter.
Be inspired by the double down of oppression to double up in being better.
I look at our times as fuel towards personal inspiration in finding joy, connecting with others and being stronger.
For fun here is the old school dance version to Double Back.
