Whether we like it or not, we humans are on the verge of a huge transformation.
We are at a collective crossroads where a lot of things need to change in terms of what we think and believe and how we live our lives on a day to day basis. And most of what has to die and be reborn are social and cultural systems that have been in place for hundreds if not thousands of years that are challenging to our very survival.
The patriarchy needs to be dismantled… pronto. Late stage capitalism is eating us alive. White supremacy and racism are at the roots of terrible injustices that undermine our very humanity. The birds and trees and insects and animals are crying out to us to heal the planet so that they can flourish again. So that WE can flourish again.
This call to change is an invitation to think outside of ALL the boxes and to access our capacity to be wildly creative.
But like all transformations it will be messy and chaotic and frustrating. It will be an exercise of groping around in the dark and lurching forward then backwards then sideways and forward again. It won’t always feel good. In fact, It will often feel like nothing at all is happening or that things are getting worse.
This transformation will be anything but easy. It’s going to take work. And to play our part in it’s unfolding we need to hold onto the vision of how we WANT things to be. Whether it’s more justice for ALL people or saving the coral reefs or less guns on the streets or true equality for women and people of color or a world that is blooming and blossoming again and all children are cared for and loved your heart knows what that longing is for you.
And that desire to create something new needs your help to be born in this world. Embrace what you love with your whole heart and soul, that thing that you and ONLY you can bring into being and give it EVERYTHING you’ve got. This is not the time for holding back or collapsing into hopelessness and despair before you’ve even gotten into the game.
We need each other more than ever to pull this off. It could still go either way. Please make the choice to not give up or cave into the belief that all is lost. That will only be true if you refuse to both dream AND act.
This is an incredible time to be alive. A blessing to be part of something holy and awesomely transformative on so many levels. It’s a time to fight with everything in us for what we know is true. It’s a time for devotion to the life force and honoring the power of both your imagination and your capacity to take courageous action. A time to committing yourself to your vision of a better world for all. To staying true to your dream of healing and wholeness and then doing whatever it takes bring that vision into being.
And a time to remake this precious world through the power of love and your wild creative heart.
