Healing the world is a journey, within ourselves and in the world, as we seek to transform our inner lives as well as our social, political and economic systems. Either without the other is an inadequate response to the challenges of our times.
In order to build a tall building, we dig a very deep hole in the ground. In order to affect most powerfully the horizontal planes of existence, we align ourselves with the vertical axis of consciousness and intention. Things transform from the inside out.
It is as important to meditate as it is to vote, as important to learn to forgive as to courageously tell truth to power. We must try to remove the hatred from our own hearts before we can even begin to consider ourselves conduits for a new and better world. Humanity is not bad, but we are deeply wounded. The woundedness of our psyches has been projected onto the world around us, and the pain of the world has further wounded our hearts.
The world is on a self-generating loop of pain affecting the majority of people alive, as unadulterated greed and its tyrannous hold on governments and economic systems run amok across the planet. While countless souls are harkening to the call of a new and better way, fear continues its deadly rampage and its hysterical resistance to the ways of love. We spend more money on ways to kill each other than we are willing to spend on ways to heal each other.
Collectively we have become a predatory species – toward the earth, toward animals, and even toward ourselves. Humanity will change, we will evolve, or it is reasonable to assume that one way or the other we might drive ourselves into extinction.
It is time to radically transform, and there is literally not a moment to spare. We can and must invoke a miracle. When enough hands are on deck, enough hearts are dedicated, and enough minds are functioning on high alert, then a mutative, resurrective breakthrough the likes of which none of us can imagine but which all of us yearn for will come to pass.
But not until, and not unless. The clock is ticking. The moment is urgent. Love awaits but we must not tarry. It is time for new birth. It is time to transform.– Marianne Williamson on social media
