We are healing.
It may not seem like it, what with all the videos of cops beating or arresting peaceful protesters or pushing old men to the ground. But to heal something, you need to face it. And a light is being shined on the centuries of oppression and the foundations upon which sick systems were built.
Well-meaning people are starting to look inside and see how when we say or do nothing, or very little, it upholds the system that we White people quietly benefit from, even if we didn’t know before. We are asking ourselves, how have I contributed to this? Now that I know, do I want my children to continue on this path? As Maya Angelou said, ‘When we know better, we do better.’ It’s not about shame or blame, but equality. People are waking up.
Change can seem slow but have no doubt that a revolution is underway. The light is coming in in small cracks, which will grow and grow. Anything that isn’t authentic or true is falling away.
I don’t know what’s next, but look for the light to highlight / uncover corrupt health care systems (more like sick care), Big Pharma, education, food, and social media platforms.
In the near-ish future, small businesses will thrive, people will be less materialistic and more spiritual. People are already starting to grow their own food.
Healing isn’t linear so sometimes it will be two steps forward, one step back. But lasting change is underway as we speak.
Mark my words: a new, better era is coming. Keep your vibe high by doing what lights you up. Be the light.
P.s. There are some spiritual people I know/ spiritual leaders who say we are creating more division by acknowledging skin color. And I know most of them are coming from a place of love and want to see healing. And that they see us all as sacred souls. But I’m struggling with this: what’s wrong with acknowledging that certain skin colors are treated unfairly and have been for ages? What’s wrong with supporting and lifting up their voices, so that we all actually CAN be one? How does that create division? The division is already there—we’re just trying to heal it.
