[thoughts from ~burning woman~ by Sha’Tara]
“We cannot fight change because we are a part of it.”
Doesn’t that read like a great thought? It reads as if change will happen without fighting for it, just because.
But what if the change spoken of is retrograde, what then?
If we cannot fight such change precisely because we are a part of it, then does it not behoove us, as intelligent, sentient, self-aware beings, spiritually and mentally aware, to separate ourselves from such retrograde change?
Must we ever remain victims of forces we believe are beyond our control?
The price we must be willing to pay if we would renounce our collusion with destructive, if not murderous beliefs, forces and powers, is to become self-empowered.
Did I just conclude that last sentence with a swear word?
Every religious; every political, every financial; every belief system, by nature of being a system, has stood viciously opposed to Earthians ever daring to become self empowered. Every teaching; every public education system has one refrain: study the accepted, recognized authority figures. You, as an individual, have no voice.
Self-empowerment equals the end of every controlling system on earth. No system can exist without our willingness to offer ourselves, in chains, upon the slave auction block. We’ve done this since we became what we proudly think of as homo sapiens sapiens. So long have we dutifully followed this path from conception to death that we’ve come to believe it is a sign of superiority, of power and great intelligence.
We love to be enslaved. We want to be led, no matter where, just as long as we don’t have to make that decision.
The opening quote comes from the movie, “Belle” based on a true story. It addresses the problem and horror of the slave trade in England circa 1750. A bit of a slow start – I almost turned it off – but it finally picks up to a mighty grand finale.
An intelligent movie. A great story.
