I dream of a Soular Powered revolution; something Self-Sustainable.
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr said, “An individual has not started living until s/he can rise above the narrow confines of individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity.”
An individual can’t rise above the narrow confines of individualistic concerns—I won’t break out of the “Me” box, so to speak—until I’ve developed the core strength to embrace all of who I am. Otherwise, that which I am not ready to accept in myself will prevent me from connecting with others. If I am numb to my own emotions, stuck in runaway trains of thought, held hostage by self-doubt, or too exhausted by the fumes of a toxic environment to challenge my own perception, how can I address what lies beyond my box? Only when I accept myself unconditionally am I free to access my innate energy and evolve into an actively contributing, Soular Power-producing component of humanity.
The awkward, resistant, and/or destructive habits of thought and behavior that exist within each human being lie at the foundation of the fossil-fueled system we seek to change. But when it comes to addressing these concerns, the American public has a habit of neglect. Maybe we settle with ourselves for less because we figure that one person cannot save the world. This, however, isn’t the point. Each individual is responsible for the world s/he creates….
Sustainable community requires individual Response-ability. This Response-ability (or Invironmental Awareness) allows an individual to be of collective service. If we hope to save humanity, we must start where we are: addicted, anxious, afraid, attached. We can’t move forward if we’re holding back.
Taking Response-ability means empowering change.
I dream of our great awakening.
And it’s happening NOW, one day at a time.
