From Gaiafield - Subtle Activism for Global Transformation
Like many people, I have been deeply troubled by the recent spate of violent incidents around the world and the rise of extremist elements in politics. A few mornings ago, I woke up with a clear inner knowing. I realized that these forces all use the energy of fear and hate as fuel. They possess the instinct of the dark that is not bothered by negative attention at all, but in fact thrives on it. If we direct our own disgust and contempt toward them, they use that energy to grow.
The best way to respond, I realized, is to avoid the temptation to react. Stay calm, stay positive. Choose to have faith that basic human decency will prevail. Keep your practice strong, if you have one. Find the funny side of things. The dark must be confronted courageously, but it is counterproductive to allow ourselves to be drawn into a fight on its own terms.
It is also an especially good time to do work on our own shadow material, which can be activated by the chaotic forces. And, most importantly, to channel our energy into positive action that advances the good.
The Gaiafield Project team has been preparing for such a moment as this for a long time. For more than ten years, we have been building foundations for the field we call subtle activism, to help us learn as a species how to truly harness the power of consciousness for positive social transformation.
This fall (in the northern hemisphere), our work will expand in several new and powerful ways. Over the coming months, we will share with you numerous opportunities to come together in deep communion with like-minded people from around the world to create an unstoppable wave of love and truth to help us move through this initiatory crisis.
In this period, we will likely send a few more emails than usual. We ask for your understanding -- and hope you will join us so that we can rise to the challenge of this moment together with the full capacities of our collective presence and awareness.
To start, here are several inspiring ways for you to channel your energy into right action over the next week.
