Break Down What Doesn’t Serve
In light of yet another mass shooting in Las Vegas and the tragically inadequate response to hurricane victims in Puerto Rico, I’m asking again these questions from my video clip, “Cataclysm: Hope in Breakdown (below).”
Can we, with conscious self-awareness and wisdom, help certain things fall apart on purpose? Can we break down the aspects of our lives that harm ourselves, each other, and the planet as a whole?
Individually, culturally, politically, religiously, we have to ask fierce questions and take brave actions to intentionally dismantle whatever does not serve life as a whole. Then from those surrendered, raw materials we can begin to make new interdependent, life-enhancing patterns and paths for the future. That kind of transformation will take time, dedication, healing, wisdom, and imagination.
