Becoming The Impetus For Change

Change is ever-present in our society.

Everywhere we look, in every realm we glance at, in every discipline we gaze into, there is a modicum of change taking place.

Some of this change is imposed by authority.  Much of it isn’t.

Throughout history, we have examples of conscious individuals that have spawned massive change through their actions and creative potential.  One of these individuals was Martin Luther King Jr.

Many people are quite familiar with King’s ‘I have a dream’ passage, and rightly so.  The  thoughts he expressed via that remark spawned wildfires that still burn to this day.

Another salient quote of his was:

“Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?'”

In a world where many people want change, where many people expect change, where many people demand change, those words would be wise for everyone to take to heart.

Many people will be quick to want others to change circumstances for them [i.e. politics], but not many will follow suit with thorough and tangible introspection to help themselves.

These days, the words from the above quote resonate with me more and more.

Helping others attain an awareness of what’s working against them in life is an idea that’s become a catalyst in my life for quite some time.  This is because the burgeoning issues we are facing physically, mentally, psychologically, and so on are only getting more pressing by the day, and it’s imperative for cognizant individuals to come to terms with it, because they stand to get run over by the very system they work for, the very system that harvests their every branch of life.

Being keenly aware of the dastardly clever comptrollers that work behind the scenes and their modalities is but a start.  Be it incessant propaganda with the mainstream media, an onslaught of social engineering in its many forms, or a veritable storm of mind control through other fashions, the scale at which we are facing troublesome issues is compounding quite rapidly.

Be that as it may, attaining individual self empowerment through proactive, responsible action is the gateway to our solutions.

By each of us employing conscious creativity and our unending inherent potential, we will finally be able to detach from the system-imposed paradigm we are brought into and reach more mindful pastures.

Therein, as we begin [or continue] to transition from a reactive and stagnant state, to a proactive and conscious state, those meddlesome issues that have plagued us will begin to melt away like snow in the dessert.

Always remember, the impetus for change begins with you, with your deeper consciousness.

Ponder a bit, what would Martin Luther King Jr. have accomplished if he chose to stay stagnant over the pressing issues that he faced?  The course of history would be far, far different.  Thankfully, that potentiality went by the wayside.

Ponder about what drives you; fight for what you believe in.  Don’t wait for issues to arrive at your doorstep before taking action because it will be too late.

Let’s quit falling into the whirlpool of twisted lies that are becoming more and more obvious every day.

Only through conscious action will we be able to reach the potential/goals that we each as an individual inherently has.

Keep searching.

Keep growing.

Keep learning.

Keep planting seeds.

The truth is far more important than anything else, and to be inactive when it needs us the most is the pull the plug on our own tomorrow.

Enjoy life – your gift – and make it count.

Become emboldened by your creative potential and let it take you into tomorrow.

After all, if you put your mind to it your creative potential cannot be thwarted.

What Happens To A Dream Deferred? Ask Martin Luther King Jr.

Martin Luther King Jr. could tell you what happens to dreams deferred. They explode.

As I point out in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, more than 50 years after King was assassinated, his dream of a world without racism, militarism and materialism remains a distant dream.

Indeed, the reality we must contend with is far different from King’s dream for the future: America has become a ticking time bomb of racial unrest and injustice, police militarization, surveillance, government corruption and ineptitude, the blowblack from a battlefield mindset and endless wars abroad, and a growing economic inequality between the haves and have nots.

King’s own legacy has suffered in the process.

The image of the hard-talking, charismatic leader, voice of authority, and militant, nonviolent activist minister/peace warrior who staged sit-ins, boycotts and marches and lived through police attack dogs, water cannons and jail cells has been so watered down that younger generations recognize his face but know very little about his message.

Rubbing salt in the wound, while those claiming to honor King’s legacy pay lip service to his life and the causes for which he died, they have done little to combat the evils about which King spoke and opposed so passionately: injustice, war, racism and economic inequality.

For instance, President Obama speaks frequently of King, but what has he done to bring about peace or combat the racial injustices that continue to be meted out to young black Americans by the police state?

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump plans to “honor” Martin Luther King Jr.’s legacy by speaking at a convocation at Liberty University, but what has he done to combat economic injustice?

Democratic presidential contender Hillary Clinton will pay tribute to King’s legacy by taking part in Columbia, South Carolina’s King Day at the Dome event, but has she done anything to dispel her track record’s impression that “machines and computers, profit motives and property rights are still considered more important than people”?

Unlike the politicians of our present day, King was a clear moral voice that cut through the fog of distortion. He spoke like a prophet and commanded that you listen. King dared to speak truth to the establishment and called for an end to oppression and racism. He raised his voice against the Vietnam War and challenged the military-industrial complex. And King didn’t just threaten boycotts and sit-ins for the sake of photo ops and media headlines. Rather, he carefully planned and staged them to great effect.

Two Things to Read on Martin Luther King Day

When evil men plot, good men must plan. When evil men burn and bomb, good men must build and bind. When evil men shout ugly words of hatred, good men must commit themselves to the glories of love. Where evil men seek to perpetrate an unjust ‘status quo’, good men must seek to bring into being a real order of justice.

– Martin Luther King Jr

The more I read of Dr. King’s words, the more impressed I become with his timeless wisdom, intellect and courage. On this day when we remember the man, it’s very important to appreciate two things. First, while MLK was a peaceful man, he was unquestionably a fierce revolutionary against the prevailing status quo. While his cause and struggle look so obvious in 2016, in his day many segments of American society considered him the enemy, including the U.S. government. For example, we now know that the FBI actually wrote him a letter suggesting he commit suicide.

As such, beyond his eloquent words, his message of love and a relentless fight for justice, we must also remember that the power structure was very much against the man and everything he stood for. Indeed, the reason “the state” is almost always on the wrong side of history, is because “the state” is typically nothing more than a collection of self-serving entrenched interests battling to preserve their wealth and power at all costs. All too often, such costs are the well being of the population in general. This is the situation we once again face in 2016.
