my roots go down (on freedom during a time when so many are enslaved)

I have been thinking and writing about liberation lately. One thing the dominator culture fails to take into account is the real revolution happening right now in the minds and hearts of many.

This is not a revolution where we ask for equal rights, or we negotiate for freedom within the framework of dualism and dominance, this is a revolution in which freedom is experienced as a living reality, a reality that has simply been overlooked. Freedom is lived tacitly in the psyche. This quality of freedom is unbound, thus, the position of the dominator becomes irrelevant. It becomes forceless.

We represent an emerging paradigm of psychological, ecological and spiritual liberation. This new paradigm is emerging globally, in all systems, liberation is appearing in all walks of life and all schools of thought.

Much energy goes into keeping people, our earth home and our animal kin oppressed. Much energy.

Much energy is happening in the work of liberating ones own mind and coming to a personal recognition of innate freedom and intuitive ecological sanity. Much energy.

Do not for one moment underestimate the collective power and potential churning just below the surface of things.

There is no fight or struggle to be had in reclaiming what simply is. Freedom of being, freedom of true nature, simply is. That one recognition, when individually metabolized, is totally disruptive to the matrix of oppression. None but ourselves can free our mind.
For those of us working and co-creating down at the roots of social justice issues, for those who heal our living system in our own hearts and psyche directly, do not let anything distract from this most important work of liberation. The alchemy is real. Thank you, I stand with you, heart-to-heart forever in solidarity.
