And as we awaken to the realisation that our society is coming up against limits to our outmoded thinking, belief systems and thresholds - to what is unbridled growth, we are starting to reflect on the inevitable consequences of business as usual.
When the joy of compassionate service is married to a practical and pragmatic drive to transform all existing economic, social, and political institutions, a radical and potentially all-transforming holy force is born.
This coming from the quintessential sacred activist, Andrew Harvey a global transition leader who invokes the sacred in every thought, deed and action in what is our collective … ever expanding cosmology.
If there was ever a time to fulfill our hearts calling for a better world, it has to be now.
From Mahatma Gandhi to Nelson Mandela, the Dalai Lama, and Martin Luther King, Jr., we have over the last century witnessed beings stand up to the status quo and against the odds, courageously show(ed) that their passion to represent the repressed and downtrodden continued, unabated.
Here in our country of Aotearoa we too have a growing number of people, who surrendering to a greater calling than service to self, devote their lives to doing what they feel, and intuitively know is right, to stand firm in the face of adversity as well as recognising the growing general consensus that things are definitely not sustainable.
Where once virtues, values and ethics were more deeply embedded in our community and that they were intrinsic to what we thought and felt society should embrace, yet we are also continuing to witness on a daily basis a greater void in the world. This emptiness is in many ways being foisted upon us from the global corporate juggernaut that has overreached itself and now, sacred activists are riding the pendulum thats finally starting to swing life back towards balance and that of community.
Todays new calling is for positive change, for deep dialogue, to open to new ideas, innovation and expanding the parameters of new paradigm thinking. At the same time bringing with it a warm hearted countenance, that unifies the spirit and connects with the common aspirations of so many people who have been affected, but have been struggling and unable to truly contribute to the world.
Thus, we are all being called to participate in this upwelling of transformation, in both the outer world and our inner realms especially our celebrating of our reverence for life.
So the question that now lends itself to your continuing curiosity, are you a sacred activist? Are you a metaphysical change agent? Do you know anyone who is? And, do you aspire to ignite your own inner wisdom and participate?
