We are surrounded by mystery and magic
If God created us in His own image, He must be really be arrogant and lazy along with divine.
If you’re a god, creating humanity is not something to brag about.
We kill anything that gets in our way and destroy anything that can be exploited.
We steadily increase pollution so that the stars are obscured by artificial light, and we force ourselves to retreat into our air conditioned buildings.
We would rather have the miracle of life come to us through screens that filter out more than two dimensions than experience it directly.
Amazing things happen so fast that amazement has no time to register before the next amazing thing captures our attention, and we don’t even have time to see them.
Moments move into moments without being noticed.
And we wonder if we’re living in a simulation.
There is no shortage of irony in the human experience.
The things that concern us are race and riches. We oppress and attack our brothers and sisters proving we are still savages who have learned how to wear shoes and therefore think ourselves better than those who do not.
We have to change the way we do things.
We have drifted into a foggy darkness.
This isn’t working. Let’s imagine another reality. Together. Let’s dream together.
Let’s change our minds.
We have to change our minds. We can’t let this continue.
We know how this story ends. It becomes a self-fulfilling prophesy that profits off misery.
We have to change our minds.
Why should we continue to perpetuate systems and societies that exploit people, the earth and future generations?
We’ve got to change the way we do things. To do that, we’ve got to change our minds. We’ve got to liberate our hearts.
It will take changing our minds so we can find the reasons to make better choices. It will take changing our minds so we can see consequences and their causes.
It will take changing our minds so we can see how we get in our own way.
It will take changing our minds so our minds are willing to work with our hearts instead of ignoring the wisdom inherent in our heart.
We must change on a fundamental level.
We must change on a massive scale.
We must change before we can no longer do it.
Obviously we need a miracle. If you want to attribute that miracle to God or to magic or to people working with the laws of nature, it doesn’t matter. We all still need to do our part.
It’s the least we can do.
Spread the word.
Let’s dream together.
