I’ve been interested in the Occupy Wall Street movement, as it feels like there is an awakening in our society from a slumber of inertia, of ‘it’s just the way it is, I can’t do anything about it’. And this is a crucial beginning. Indeed there needs to be a calling out of greed and inequality in our culture. People should not seek and be content to prosper at the expense and suffering of others. The education and future of our children should not suffer due to lack of funds while the rich get richer. And our environment should not be desecrated and destroyed, for anything, especially the increased wealth of a few.
Seems to me we need a powerful group of leaders, who have a very wise and thought out plan. In different areas; finance, education, environment, etc. We need serious corporate reform, and we need serious government reform. And with ‘we the people’ insisting on it, in an active, organized and determined way, I believe we can make changes that reflect far greater consciousness and far greater support for the welfare of all.
There is a slow and waking realization that ‘we the people’ have more power than we realize. When we have a cause that is clear, that we believe in, when we have wise leaders to lead the way, and we are organized, we can bring on a revolution to change the way we live life on this planet.
I’m doing things to add my two cents. I’m writing talks, I’m writing songs, I’m recording a new cd of conscious music, supporting environmental and other social programs, and I am living as consciously as possible day to day. Always learning, always reflecting on how to refine. I look around and celebrate the expressions of greater consciousness in so many friends and people I meet, who are finding ways to contribute to the well being of the earth, of all beings, of all people. And for this, I give great thanks giving.
