I Have A Dream…

I dream of a Soular Powered revolution; something Self-Sustainable.

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr said, “An individual has not started living until s/he can rise above the narrow confines of individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity.”

An individual can’t rise above the narrow confines of individualistic concerns—I won’t break out of the “Me” box, so to speak—until I’ve developed the core strength to embrace all of who I am.  Otherwise, that which I am not ready to accept in myself will consume me.  If I am numb to my own emotions, stuck in runaway trains of thought, held hostage by self-doubt, or too exhausted by the fumes of a toxic environment to challenge my own perception, how can I live?  Only when I accept myself unconditionally am I free to evolve into an actively contributing, Soular Power-producing component of humanity.

The awkward, resistant, and/or destructive habits of thought and behavior that exist within each human being lie at the foundation of the fossil-fueled system we seek to change.  But when it comes to addressing these concerns, the American public has a habit of neglect.  Maybe we settle with ourselves for less because we figure that one person cannot save the world.  This, however, is irrelevant.  Each individual is responsible for the world s/he creates….

Sustainable community requires individual Response-ability.  This Response-ability (or Invironmental Awareness) allows an individual to be of collective service.  If we hope to empower humanity, we must start where we are: addicted, anxious, afraid, attached.  We can’t move forward if we’re holding back.

  • It is our Response-ability to look each other in the eye and really feel what we’re working with.
  • It is our Response-ability to discern and acknowledge—and then, navigate accordingly.
  • It is our Response-ability to express thoughts and feelings without judgment or apology, building the capacity to thrive (otherwise we deprive ourselves of our own experience).
  • Dr. King also said, “A man can’t ride your back unless it’s bent.”  It is our Response-ability to stand up for ourselves.

This is the revolutionary energy of NOW.  Every dollar and every hour you spend is a vote cast.  Will you invest in your future or your past?

No need to wait for the institutions of old to turn new leaves

If we are the trees

We build the eaves on the roof that holds truth over our heads

Asleep in our beds

And waking up

One day at a time
