The Revolution will not be Televised

…but it might be Youtubed and Facebooked. And it is happening now.

We, the people, are waking up to a system that is absolutely unsustainable.

And, as we do, we realize that no one “up above” is going to fix this for us. The larger systems of government, corporations and mass media rely too heavily on the continuation of injustice to be of any use to this movement. Based on their past behavior we can only count on them to distort information, dig their heals in and disempower the masses at each step along the way.

But it looks like the masses are getting over this dependency and are stepping forward despite these obstacles. It is happening on the street, person to person in real time. And it is being shared across the country and the world over the internet. This web we’re tapped into has turned out to be an amazing conduit for grass-roots communication.

We are sharing the word, receiving the messages, we are learning and growing together.

And we know, beyond any argument, that systems based on injustice and suffering create their own demise…

Standing up to empower the people at Occupy L.A., Marrianne Williamson says that even if we don’t know all the economic terms and lingo…we DO know enough to stand up for what is right. She says, “Capitalism is morally and ethically neutral…but modern American capitalism has lost its moral and ethical center.”1


“They tell you we are dreamers. The true dreamers are those who think things can go on indefinitely the way they are. We are not dreamers. We are awakening from a dream which is turning into a nightmare. We are not destroying anything. We are only witnessing how the system is destroying itself.”2

“This awakening is not just about economics, it’s about ecology and our love for what we know is valuable: community, healthcare, simple food, and time.”2

I’ve gathered a handful of the most potent communications I’ve received so far on this movement. Marrianne Williamson says “Keep it smart, keep it nonviolent and keep it growing.”So please check them out and educate yourself on the wave that is rising and moving across the planet.

Blogger’s Challenge: Step out of any preconceived notions you may have about politics and economics and center into a vision of the most harmonious way humankind could live together on this planet. Hold that vision like a precious treasure in your heart and allow yourself to believe that it’s possible.
