Activist movements, protests are all passionately motivated by the intense desire for CHANGE.
Anger, frustration, impatience, unhappiness collect in a strong force to resist that which is oppressing. I have been passionately involved in movements, I used my anger to fuel me to engage in protests and speak about various topics that are affecting our known world. However, this anger, this feeling of injustice did not get me anywhere. Instead it fuelled the opposition and made me upset. I learned that WHAT WE RESIST, PERSISTS! ( I am in no way saying to stop spreading information about injustice, rather, to direct all of your expansive energy into solutions instead of the issues- which I will discuss below).
What we feed energy, grows. Be it a small child, an animal, a worrying thought, an illness, an idea, OR EVEN THIS BOLDED, CAPITAL TEXTS. IT WORKS BECAUSE MORE ENERGY IS PUT INTO IT, DRAWING YOUR ATTENTION AND FOCUS. I WANT YOU TO SEE IT, SO I MAKE IT LOUD!! BUT IF I KEEP SPEAKING LIKE THIS, IT LOOSES ITS POWER, IT DOESNT STAND OUT ANYMORE, and just seems very obnoxious. This is what happens when we fight something. We get loud, they get louder, then we get louder and its this never ending battle. Ultimately no one ends up where they want to be, they only end up reacting to the opposing force. Both sides get Nowhere, instead of now here. To be NOW HERE, you need to be neutral, calm, centered and immersed in universal truth, not a subjective reality.
When we resist and fight against something, that force will come back in an equal reaction.
This is true in protests, wars, fights, mental thoughts etc.
If you want change, then BE the CHANGE, as Gandhi said.
By demonstrating how you want to live, how you want to be, you are able to create your reality. Instead of enforce it on others.
When you follow your dream and stop telling everyone else that there’s is wrong, the push back is minimized.
THE ONLY PUSH BACK WILL BE YOUR OWN DOUBTS AND FEARS.
If we want change, then we have to make it in our own lives. Fighting and resisting will only create more tension.
Awareness is good, spreading information is good. But it is important to do so with a NEUTRAL/ UNBIASED MIND.
Energy needs to be directed in a POSITIVE AND HEALTHY way. Focus on the better alternative, focus on how you want to be, not what you don’t want to be.
If you want to take power ( LIFE) away from something, DONT FEED IT.
Feeding your passion to the devil, speaking about how bad they are, is causing them to gain power. Politics, corporations, celebrities all feed on publicity. If no one talks about them, then they loose their power. If no one buys their products they loose their power. It is like a plant. Stop giving it sunlight, water, food, it dies…
Same with everything you dont want in your life.
IF YOU WANT SOMETHING TO GO AWAY, TO STOP, TO END;
STOP FEEDING IT MENTALLY, PHYSICALLY, EMOTIONALLY.
Let your attention always be focused on love, light and peace, and that will surround you.
