CHANGEMAKERS WAKE UP. It’s time to make a new world!

(Psst……Song of the Beloved, the Gospel According to Mary Magdalene is available NOW.  Check it out HERE.)  Now on to today’s blog!

Have you felt like you were here for a reason, but perhaps didn’t know what that reason was?  Do you feel like you are here to change the world, but you don’t know how?  Have you struggled to fit in, often feeling like you were very different from the people you know (and even your family)?  Have you felt somewhat alone with in these thoughts? If so….YOU ARE NOT ALONE.  In fact, you are in really good company, there are lots of other people like you, we are finding each other and we are getting ready to CREATE A NEW WORLD!

Changemakers

Who are the changemakers?  If you are reading this blog, you are likely a changemaker (aka superhero, shitdisturber, rebel, discontent, mystic, starchild, starseed, starborne) and you are in really good company.  Changemakers are those who were born with the inherent gifts and a deep inner call to make the world a better place.  If you are a changemaker, you probably know it…..and WE NEED YOUR HELP because the world as we know it is coming to an end (THANK GOD!) and a new world is waiting to be born!

Politics and End times

If the most recent election is any sign of approaching end times, I don’t know what is.  Positions purchased by corporations.  The whole thing is rigged.  We no longer have a government by the people, for the people.  Instead, we have a government by greedy corporations for the sake of greedy corporations and we don’t need to look very far to see who benefits from this arrangement – healthcare corporations, academic institutions, pharmaceutical companies, Big oil, agricultural companies who are trying to make us sick (if not dead) through the alteration of our food stocks.  Big business benefits and the politicians who are in their pockets while the rest of the country is sick, unemployed and dying.  Something has to change!

Enter the Changemakers

We are a small voice, but we are getting louder.  No longer content to be obedient and do what we are told.  No longer content to live in a world of fear.  No longer content to watch our brothers and sisters toil away in crappy jobs for poverty wages.  No longer yearning after “The Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous,” or wanting what we see on MTV Cribs.  Tired of watching education, healthcare and government flushing themselves down the toilet as we get dumber, sicker and poorer.  Changemakers know it is TIME FOR A NEW WORLD!

The Key to Creating Change

The key to creating change, for making a new world is SELF KNOWLEDGE!  When we come to know ourselves – our TRUE SELVES – we know how we are uniquely gifted to not only find fulfillment in our own lives, but how we are called to contribute to the creation of the New World.  We grow in self- knowledge by being open to this search, and by finding the right kind of support.  This is where I come in.  During a recent gathering of the Superhero Academy,   I was reminded of my own unique giftedness and call – to Awaken, Equip and Empower CHANGEMAKERS (aka Superheroes).  I accomplish this task through writing (blogs, inspirational newsletters and books), one-on-one mentoring, classes and workshops.  If you are interested in harnessing your desire to MAKE A NEW WORLD, and haven’t acted yet, call (920) 230-1313 or email lauri@yourspiritualtruth.com today to start that journey.  We need your help in CREATING a new world!

Election Results

Made you look!  Today’s blog only has a little bit to do with the results of the presidential election and much more to do with how to maintain peace in the midst of what we might not want.

Obama Wins

As a bleeding-heart, liberal, democrat, I am pleased with the results of yesterday’s presidential election.  At least 40% of the US population and over 50% of the House of Representatives are not, however,  happy with these results.  With the make-up of Democrats vs. Republicans in the House and the Senate, President Obama will once again have his work cut out for him.  Posing an even bigger challenge will be the fact that many of our political leaders are no longer working with the best interests of the collective in mind, but instead work for the special interest groups and lobbyists that pad their pockets and fund their elections.  While Barack Obama has succeeded in winning this race, he might once again face a losing battle in accomplishing anything of meaning or value to the American people as policy change gets thwarted by bi-partisan politics.  Regardless of what may or may not happen in the forty-eight months ahead, today, there are many people who will be disappointed, frustrated and angry over the results of yesterday’s elections and even more who will be frustrated, angry and disappointed over the inability of our current form of government to affect positive change that is truly for the good of the people.  But, as I suggested in my August 12th blog, Elections and a Disturbance in the Force, the results of yesterday’s elections has nothing to bear on our ability to move forward with our lives enjoying peace, contentment, love and joy.

Timely Wisdom

I found confirmation of this truth while enjoying my morning meditation.  As usual, I begin by reading the daily scripture readings, then continue by listening to and sometimes singing sacred chant, ending in silence with maybe a little journaling to round things off.  In the first scripture reading, Paul had this to say to the Philippians:

Do everything without grumbling or questioning, that you may be blameless and innocent, children of God without blemish in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation.

Philippians 2

These words certainly apply to our response to yesterday’s election results – if we are not happy about the results, let’s not grumble about it, complain, throw stones, cast dispersions…instead….let’s move on and look toward how we can make the best of the situation.  For those happy with the results and who will become later frustrated by that battles that are sure to continue between parties and interest groups, again, let us not grumble, complain, throw stones, cast dispersions…instead….let’s move on and make the best of the situation.

Applying this to our everyday lives

The results of yesterday’s elections and the path ahead are but a drop of water in the pond of challenges that we face in our everyday lives.  What happens in Washington truly has little to bear on the day-to-day struggles that we face – death, job loss, illness, aging, unemployment, underemployment, divorce, heartbreak, children growing up and moving away, business failure, unfulfilling jobs and relationships, injuries, physical, emotional, mental, verbal and sexual abuse, assault, natural disasters, crop failures, etc. etc. etc.  No matter what happens in Washington, we will still face these challenges.  People we love will die.  We will find ourselves in unfulfilling and seemingly meaningless jobs.  We will age and experience illness.  Our businesses will fail.  Our hearts will be broken.  While it is appropriate and important to grieve these losses and disappointments, it is equally important to remember that the end result of healthy grief is ACCEPTANCE. It is in grieving the loss and finding acceptance that we once again know peace.  This peace is what Paul is inviting us to enjoy in the reading above.  Political races are lost. We don’t always get what we want.  We become frustrated when our efforts fall short.  Bad things happen to good people.  And…..in the midst of all of this is the promise of peace. As Paul says, this peace is found not in the grumbling, complaining or questioning, but is instead found in acceptance of what is and in trusting that this too is in the highest good, no matter what it might look like right now.
