It seems quite fortuitous that I have started posting my video blogs here on my blogspot page as I am currently having a problem adding text to my YouTube upload.
In support of the Occupy Monsanto demonstrations around the world today a I suggest we all occupy our own realities with autonomous thought and action rather than allow corporate entities to take over and monopolise our existences.
We need to regain a sense of our own agency which has been depleted by the social brainwashing of popular culture as well as sociological theories which try to persuade us that there is no ‘doer’, only an intersection of social variables, the ultimate argument of despair and nihilism.
It is a clash of worldviews as those who operate under a paradigm of hierarchical dominance continue to try and establish and maintain control of systems that had evolved with inner adaptive control measures that are flexible and resilient. Each monad of consciousness acts autonomously and responds to the whole in order to remain in equilibrium rather than to always direct the responses of others.
We are Doers, and we are Agents, as each of us follows a unique path of experience which gives us the opportunity to grow. We define ourselves by the choices we make. The quality of the space we create, the reality we occupy is the manifestation of who we really are. ‘Know thyself’. ‘To thine own self be true’. If we allow others to occupy that space with their domination then we are abdicating our sovereignty. This has been going on for a very long time, we have sleepwalked into this for generations.
The answer lies within us as we become aware of ourselves and begin to take responsibility for how we deal with the challenges which face us, but the mettle of the inner person is only brought forth by the facing of the external events. Those that deny the importance of what happens in the world are missing the point. We cannot wholly control what arises from external situations, but we can control our own responses to them. The hero need not be undefeated, only undaunted. This is what the monopolists cannot abide. Material domination is only the lesser half of what they seek ~ the greater half is the domination and subjugation of the will. Occupy the space within yourself, within your consciousness and your heart and you will be part of that great wave which is spreading around the world and becoming ever stronger as we all reinforce its field.
