Rather experience Evolution.
The failure for many: being taught to think we must be the seed of revolution.
Don’t get trapped thinking that you need to force all change.
Push change with love rather than making change savage.
The truth is that:
The seed of revolution only comes from those in power who abuse their power. Revolution is only a tool to recreate a new system in the image of the old system.
Being revolutionary is a path that takes one away from life. We are people, working towards living our lives better every day. Instead lets release the profit based lifestyles that only consume your very life away.
The average person destroys or limits themselves in their very lifestyle choices. For example: if you work 110% , you only work yourself into crisis and to the grave 45% faster…and that means very quickly indeed.
We hold within ourselves the seed of evolution. Look for this seed of transformation by living a life better. If we stop living to wall street, to what corporations want us to buy, to mass media selling you everything you don’t need: It then becomes possible to live a good life and to shift the balance back to your own life.
This is all about kindness, non-judgement and people working together. This solution isn’t utopia! It’s about humanity being human and living as well as we all can… together.
You are not going to miss the great changes ahead, provided you take some time to slow down, be aware and work with others.
The moral: Don’t rush nor let your actions be defined by pain or from others trying to profit from you.
In evolving into a newer path understand this:
Even if you know your path, it takes persistence, patience and perseverance especially when creating a new path. Many people think because a path is hard, they may have the wrong path… Don’t doubt yourself. Be true with persistence, patience and perseverance.
We are all on a new path: the evolution of our times into more sustainable and graceful lifestyles.
To change the times is to realize:
You have vested interest in making these to be great times… Greatness only comes out from persistence.
A Time to Play
The process of the evolution is one of many smaller answers combining into larger more sustainable social changes. This means we have to be willing to play with the smaller changes first.
Playfulness is required now more than ever to change the world.
Innovation on a major scale is happening all around us… don’t make the mistake to think innovation will come from someone else. Innovation simply comes out of you living your life better now. Be open, play and innovate your life every day! Have faith to understand and put your own energy into your own life and what you would like to build…
Because the time to shift is now, while everything is still quite flexible. People might complain they are powerless, that larger power groups are messing everything up on purpose… Yes, things are being messed up on purpose by larger power brokers but that doesn’t mean that is our game.
Each one of us now, ironically has as much power to change the world as the larger power brokers. Because everything is in a chaotic mix… Even a butterfly wing beat adds to the shifting world.
Your voice, your actions, your lifestyle matter now, more than any other moment in the history of the modern world.
Make it count, live it gracefully, kindly, fully, amazingly and without hesitation to be GREAT.
I built a world wide Taoist practice that is growing and expanding and making a difference every day. 15 years ago, what I built would not have been possible. Yet it became possible because I dared to live as a Taoist Teacher, in a culture that actively works against Taoist principles of kindness, non judgement and grace…. And yet I am thriving… Because in this chaos so many people need help finding kindness again.
My point is this… It’s time to be great by living it. You won’t get this chance again 15 years from now, after society re-locks down into what ever it is we build it to become now…
Now is always the only time you get to make a difference…
Live well to build a new world now. This is your chance.
Our Inner Mirror
What we feel isn’t the mirror to the world. How you say something internally to yourself and how you re-phrase it to make sense for others are two different things all together.
Not everyone wants to change or evolve. Be careful on how you push your own change to others. Kindness means to listen and pace how you reach out to others based on who they are, not what you feel is true.
Yes we are all shifting. But we don’t all have to shift in the same absolute manner.
The Old Social System is Going to Lie.
Lets face it, the old social system doesn’t want to change. Those at the top will resist change, because they are at the top.
The old social system doesn’t know how to measure new change. We are on the edge of a totally fresh waves of change and such change at first is very disconcerting. Up to till recently everything pretty much flowed to momentum and predictability since the changes up to this point were cause and effect for the most part. In today’s situation: changes are becoming unpredictable. What we are experiencing is truly fresh. The media will lie and be surprised as events happen. No one is an expert when cultural fundamentals shift.
This means we all have much more to say and the capacity to help improve the society now. At first much resistance will be put forth, because society is a reflective process, it buffers its nature in how people act. That social buffering, will buffet us about and cause turmoil, don’t let your inner soul be in turmoil right now. This is just pre-change jitters.
Concentrate on how you can live your life kinder and help others in your community live kinder.
This is not a drill to hide away. This is a time to work out, to be present and active in your life again. In this lifestyle exercise, you regather together your personal rights to living your own full life. This is far better than being told what to do by others trying to take charge of your change.
