The collective shadow is revealing. Corruption becoming more and more evident. Wealth inequality is widening, and existing structures use every tactic to try and hold onto control of the crumbling systems that no longer work. Promises made that our compliance with these systems will allow us to return to “life as normal”. These systems are collapsing as they fail to serve the people they were created to support in the first place. Why would we want to go back to “normal”? Let these systems burn to the ground.
Financial systems, so toxic and so corrupt that trying to fix the system by changing tax rates or printing more money is like shuffling deck chairs on the Titanic. Hermes Trismegistus stated, “… as within so without… “, meaning that our outer world is a reflection of our inner world. Centralised corruption of power is a collective reflection of where we’ve given our personal power away.
Where have we trusted our corporations will solve environmental problems?
Where have we given our power to pharmaceutical companies (The CDC and others) in the hope that they know what your body needs more than you?
Where do you see your tax money blatantly being squandered and misappropriated but live in fear and compliance to keep contributing and supporting this broken system?
Where do you look at these systems and feel like you can’t make a difference? Tell yourself a story that the problem is too big to be solved? These collective internal stories create what we see reflected in the world. “… as within so without…”
The simplicity of this David Graeber quote fills me with optimism, “The ultimate, hidden truth of the world is that it is something that we make, and could just as easily make differently.” Our collective stories and narratives shape what we experience in the world.
And, the story that you tell about our world (even when no one is listening) makes a difference. When we tell a more empowering story, watch as the world around us begins to reflect a more empowering reality.
