This is where we are. Our society is sick. We were ill before the pandemic and the last week has been a heartbreaking reminder of how sick we really are.
Healing is no longer a choice- it’s a necessity.
We live in a world where police brutality and gun violence are not uncommon. We can’t trust our law enforcement or our politicians, corporations are more interested in profit than our children’s future, children are not safe in schools and many are not safe at home, women are not safe at home, people of color are not safe on the street.
Our society is profoundly ill.
There is no medication, supplement, diet, exercise or surgery that can heal this dis-ease. And the more each one of us tries to use those tools to fit into this profoundly sick society, the more we will all suffer. Healing is not about fitting into a dis-eased world. It’s about changing it.
We live in a world where it is not safe for individuals to be who we are.This is the poison that’s killing us. How is any one of us anywhere able to thrive if we aren’t safe to be who we are? Because that’s what we’re here to do. Every single life is essential. Each one of us is needed. If the greater intelligence wanted someone other than you to be here now, you wouldn’t have been born. It’s that simple. Each one of us is here to fulfill something essential. And you can only do that by being yourself.
But how can we be ourselves in a society where our safety is not guaranteed? How? I don’t have the answer- and I don’t think there is any one of us that does. This is a dis-ease of the collective and it’s going to take all of us to heal it. The path may look different for each one of us but the question remains the same. How can we create a world where it is safe to be ourselves? I invite you to share any thoughts or ideas you have about this so we can work together to create our collective wellbeing. #sevensenses #experiencesevensenses - 8 minutes ago
