Change is on the Way! Time to wake up!

Change is on the Way! Time to wake up!

Change is on the way. This is about discussing change. Not about the politics of this horrific Orlando nightclub shooting. I don’t want to discuss pointing fingers at others. I simply want to bring to light the need for more awareness in the field of mental health and the reality of what our nation and world is facing. Those asleep stay asleep but those waking up keep moving through and find others that support you. We are out there.

Many who read this will stop reading because the idea of not being “right” terrifies them. The idea of waking up and being completely in control of your actions, words, and the way you treat others is to much for most to even attempt to wrap their minds around. It’s easier to hate others and blame others and to point fingers. The idea of having to feel a feeling is to much for most.

Is Change Defined as Evil or Good?

Mateen the shooter had a chilling and daunting history that included talking about killing people, as well as beating his former wife and voicing hatred towards minorities, gays as well as Jews. We can debate all day long about ISIS and Obama but I want to go deeper to the underlying issues that drive these behaviors of hatred towards mankind. It breaks my heart that we are seeing in today’s time still such division of color, race and creed. We fight over land calling it ours. Countries pointing weapons of mass destruction as if to say, “Don’t mess with us or we will obliterate you.”

The ego has grown so out of control that we are now seeing the collapse of civilization. When we as a nation, and on a global level manifest such hate without even knowing or having experienced these statements as valid. It is called brainwashing.

The masses of people are spoon fed by the media and actually believe it is accurate. Let me ask you this question. Do you know who owns the media stations and funds them? NBC, CNN, FOX news? Big business do. Media is spun out of context, spoon fed to Americans, hyped up or watered down. A decision I made a long time ago was to not watch the news.

Change Wakes Us Up!

If I wake up each morning and turn on the t.v. and the first thing I hear is crime, murder, burglary, shootings, which politician is taking a mean or hateful tactic towards the others, then I am taking myself further out of alignment with my true authentic self. You are hooked as most do into believing that what is being reported is fact. Where is fact? This is all opinion. There is no right and wrong. There is conditioning. But yet we are so numbed down as a culture to believe everything we hear and to claim it as truth. No One ever ask questions. If your liberal then you watch MSNBC, CNN, The New Yorker and Slate media stations and if your conservative you watch Fox News, Which one is right? What is the definition of right? Is there a book that is the Right book?

Change Must Happen

FEAR CREATES FEAR! HATE CREATES HATE!

What I do know to be true is that it instills fear and hate in people. This fear drives people to divide, discriminate, judge others, etc. It leaves no room for individualization, self exploration, a middle approach, etc. News organizations want to play to their own audience so the skew the stories that make it onto the air. They have different viewpoints and cover them from different angles. They are in it for the money and so churn out hype, overstate the news to attract viewers to suit their preferences. Why in the world would they talk about acts of kindness, love generosity? Because it does not pay to feed the ego with these concepts.

Do the research. There are sights up such as thought catalog that are posting thousands of people praising the deaths of these innocent victims. Everyone feels so entitled to put their two cents in and give an opinion. But who is covering the story of love, the need to break down walls of inequality, to come up with solutions instead of pointing fingers?

CHANGE IS ON THE WAY

What I do know is that our youth is stomaching less and less of this garbage that is spoon fed to us. The older generation of black and white thinking, good and bad, right and wrong is coming to an end. Like it or not I believe we will see the downfall of greed, ego, hate, etc. The ego has grown so out of proportion that the only way to turn is to expansion and enlightenment. Human consciousness is on the rise and our teens and children are moving at a much faster vibration. They are smart, witty, enlightened.

I attribute this to the brave generation of parents today in their 30’s and 40’s who have been bold enough to stop and take a look at themselves, look at the conditioning that has been placed on them and stop the cycle from continuing. You all are the real hero. Sitting with uncomfortable feelings and taking ownership for your lives. You are changing the course of history. We will see the birth of new ideas, creative expression, compromise and harmony start to spread. This is why I love doing therapy with teens. They “get it”. To the awakened parents, I say this: Keep encouraging them to ask questions, seek other options, create space for them to explore and manifest. Great change is on the way. It may not be in the news but it’s the biggest shift in history. The awakening of mankind.
