Revolutions and world leaders are on my mind. There is something to respect about having a clear vision for an entire country or empire and working for the power to see it through. Even those completely self-serving and corrupt visions; they were created with much blood, sweat, and tears of conviction. It takes incredible passion and intelligence to do such a thing effectively. Incredible resolve, foresight, preparation, negotiation, steadfast commitment, and straight up hard work. Yet, even so, there is always the next revolution.
These empires always fall, overtaken by the next visionary. The constant cycle of imposing wills; my way is the right way. Enforcement, domination. We honor violence like a God. We are constantly seeking “Freedom,” so oddly through domination. How will it come to pass that the collective conscious realizes it is already free to do as it wills, collectively and at peace? That conflict is only ever with the self as a tool for growth – not a reason to fight each other for the freedom we somehow believe is on the other side of the war?
We are each our own leader of our own sovereignty of self. Why try to rule anyone else? How many lessons do we keep trying to skip over by continuing this same cycle of TAKE OVER AND RULE. I have read that Karma is not retribution but merely a lesson not yet learned showing up again and again until it can be mastered and moved on from. We as a global people must face the lesson we continue to miss. History is repeating itself because we are refusing to learn. How will it come to pass that we will finally learn and move on?
