“I find the word evil does not express what is going on internally
regarding the people who commit the acts about which we get upset.”
– Jennifer Hough
A dear friend recently asked me what do we do with the evil in the world.
Well, first we have to define evil. I find the word ‘evil’ does not express what is going on within the people who commit the acts causing such great upset. Any combination of the following may have happened to them, leading to actions described as ‘evil’.
Disenfranchisement, loneliness, abuse, severe disempowerment, lack of faith in love and communication based on their past, poverty, and therefore vulnerability, indoctrination by others who have felt the same, trying to find a place to belong, being heard, an expression of the deep resentment and anger they have internally for all the unfairness they perceive. It is coupled, or should I say fuelled, by a sprinkling of righteousness on all sides.
Ultimately, I only say this to offer that we focus on the big picture of what we can do to change the environment in which the entire human family exists. Ya, I know, biting off a big chunk there. But really? What choice do we have but to take on the dreams that are dreaming us; the very dreams that allow us to make a difference to our neighbor, community and countries, a little at a time. THAT’S BIG PICTURE. WE MUST WAKE UP.
Small picture, every day, coming back to our own hearts, minds, sense of empowerment, internal barometer and so on, to BE THE CHANGE.
Metaphysically, this is the biggest thing we can do, because in a fractal Universe, and a biophoton connected society, we can affect big, big change.
May we all be catalyzed to do and be all that we came here to do and be. May we have compassion for those who feel this disenfranchised by life while, in the meantime, building systems that deal with the heinous acts and the deprogramming of indoctrination.
It feels like more than one country could use a little of that medicine today.
The disease for me, is not in the people who commit these acts, it is in the world that would create an environment where people would separate and hate each other this deeply. We all came from the same place. At this point, in my mind we have to think big, as we are not on the ground. And more war, just begets more separation and less understanding.
We have to watch the war in our minds and hearts as well.
Being against another is not the solution, the only solution to change the world that I can see at this point is to create movements that include everyone, and which need to have visions that transcend any polarity and are available to every heart.
These movements must be bigger than current circumstances in the world.
People are looking to join, as long as it isn’t yet another politically affiliated movement, or more ‘right and wrong’ is going to happen.
Just my ramblings … thought they might hit home? Shake some fruit loose? Catalyze a deeper conversation?
Eclipses provide interesting timing and opportunities to re-choose a different future for ourselves, individually and collectively. I am ready to move forward on some global ideas that I’ve been chewing on with global thinkers.
And please, no political rhetoric. I’m not interested in side-ism. I’m interested in solutions that work for everyone.
