We have become use to thinking we have a right to all that we have. No matter what damage we do to the earth or other people. We have become detached and disconnected from reality. We have become detached from the earth, we have become detached from the feelings and lives of people else where if it interferes with our right to maintain our lifestyle. I would submit to you that we are on a course of leading to inevitable annihilation. Martin Luther King said the issue is not between non violence and violence, its between non violence and non existence. The course we are on in this world is a course of ultimate destruction. Do we want to be apart of this course of ultimate destruction? Or do we want to be a part of hope, affirmation and justice, for all people of the earth and for the earth itself... Without which we cannot live. Yes, I am talking about a non violent revolution of consciousness. Everyone comes to a point in life in which we reflect upon those things that matter. There are some who chose to ignore the depths of this question. And there others that follow this question into oblivion. Is it possible to walk the middle path? To ask these questions and yet embrace the possibility of never getting the answer? Is it possible to live our lives not in the absence of a corrupt world but to spite it. If you were asked to ponder the one thing that matters most in your life what would it be? Security, money, success, sex, power? Have you ever considered why we crave? Do we not have enough? What happens when we have all the money, all the security, all the success, sex, all the power? But haven't found peace. What happens if we gain the world without love or appreciation. We end up only wanting more... The world cant give enough of itself like humanity is a black hole devouring everything. When we receive these things our first instinct is to protect them from others. We distrust our neighbors because of them. We wage war to gain more of them. However, love is different... whenever love is presence our first instinct is to give it back. To help those who long to be truly free. Those who desire to give back... But what happens when no wants love anymore? What if no one desired freedom? What if the greatest epidemic ever know to man has already infected everyone. A whole race of humanity coned into believe that slavery is freedom, that fear is love, that suffering is happiness. Would you be able to recognize it if it were happening right now? Ask yourself... Look around... IS IT? is this the world we live in now?
