This is for all the spiritual beings out there who genuinely want to make a difference in the world:
Let us start by saying, we're all glad you care and it's wonderful that you see clearly the need for change. Realizing that there's a problem is half the battle. But all we have right now is a lot is people jumping the gun. People who recognized that the current system is a strange form of prison and so they jumped ship. That's great, but unfortunately there isn't any place to go...yet!
We have to build a new ship and that takes time, power and resources and in this case...a small miracle! Is it possible? Yes, it's possible and don't let anyone feed you some bullshit, doomsday story that it's not. We can turn this around. But we aren't going to get there if we're all sitting around meditating all day. Listen, we are a microwave society (translation: we are lazy as fuck!) and we've lost our gumption.
Here's the thing, if you really want to help, do the conscious community a favor, and acquire a stable income first- a job, trade, career that gives you income and mobility. Why? Because that's the current paradigm we are in and in order to change it, it's going to take an awakened force of humans who have their shit together. We need people who are capable of navigating their way around this system; you can't change what you don't understand. Standing outside building with protest signs is a great way to meet like-minded people but it's probably not going to create any real change. We need people who know the laws and have the ability to play the game and win.
Is this debt slave reality ideal? Um...no. It absolutely has to change! That's something we can all agree on. But we didn't get here overnight and it's not going to change overnight. People are always saying, "money is the root of all evil." Yea well, guess what! In the hands of the right people, it's also the root of good and change and movement, as well.
It's not easy, but nothing worth doing ever is. Gather your resources and strengthen your skills. You're not going to find your way to financial freedom on the backs of people in need. They don't need your opinions or your random spiritual insight- they need change. Ask yourself this:
What are you giving people besides your opinion.
Earth warrior training 101: Find a way to provide for yourself so that your intentions can stay sincere and authentic. Nobody gives a shit about how spiritual you are. We're running out of time. It's game time! At this point, hands on action and involvement is the most spiritual thing you can do. What do you bring to the table? Figure out a way to be of service because we don't need another self-help guru who isn't willing to get their hands dirty. We need honest, authentic spirited humans that are ready to get uncomfortable. It's time for truth, divine success through spirit, generosity, real gratitude and real people. We need people who are out there giving more than they're taking.
It's true. It's not what you say, it's what you do.
And finding work where you know you are contributing to something bigger
Improving the world
The whole "work" component seems largely overlooked in the Millennial/spiritual world. A wise man once said, "Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work." There is truth in those words.
those things are not taking us anywhere!
Action is a spiritual act and a large part of our purpose here.
We all need to get off our "spiritual" asses and go to work.
Get up and do something!
