We were not incarnated in any other time (era) of human history. We were born now. To live during uncertainty, upheaval, and fear. You, me, all of us born now are here to witness and be an active part of redefining the way the human species lives on this planet.
We are living during the greatest time of imbalance, destruction, and greed that humans have ever seen.
Never before has the entire planet been sucked into the oily and suffocating influence of corporate power and greed.
It is sucking the life force out of the people and the planet. And yet we are conditioned to remain in the trance of the 'chase.' Chasing after status quo’s, labels, brands, and flourishing bank accounts.
Driven to our own demise following lifestyle suggestions pushed by industry, advertising, and tailor-made news stories.
Everywhere we look, including google results, is programmed and conditioning us to be the very best humans for their bottom line... numb and passion-less and consume-more.
But we are waking up to the truth.
We have had enough.
Mother Nature has had enough.
And enough molesting of the hope and dignity of people and planet.
It’s time we rise as a collective.
It’s time we stand strong hand in hand.
It’s time to stand in peace yet firmly grounded in our demand for a refined way of life.
We can create an "environmentally sustainable, spiritually fulfilled, and socially just human presence on this planet" as the Pachamama Alliance so clearly articulates with great hope. I believe in this. We are intelligent enough to weave sustainability, oneness, and reverence to our daily choices; industry included.
But we can’t wait for the corporations to change their ways.
Or governments to change the laws.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We are meant to rise together. And we are meant to rise now.
Our Mother has given us time to sit and reflect on the ways of the past with clearer eyes while we envision the way of the future from a higher intelligence.
It’s up to us.
It’s up to you.
It’s up to me.
We can do this.
We need to do this.
And I deeply believe, we will do this!
Say it with me...
WE WILL RISE!
WE ARE RISING!
AND WE HAVE RISEN!
