Check out the One People flash mob – Occupy – YouTube which was held on November 19, 2011 at Occupy San Fransisco & Oakland with the aim of “dancing the world awake”.
What I loved was the t-shirt stating “we are the 100%”. One percent of the population may be making the decisions that affect the lives of the 99%.(More likely 1% of the 1% are holding the puppet strings to those in power, but that’s another post). But, as we lift the veils that have cloaked the corridors of power for hundreds of years, we are also being asked to participate in a shift in human consciousness. A shift from demonizing the other to recognizing that we are the other; the other lives in us, and, at this juncture, it is imperative that we embrace the other with love, compassion and tenderness.
The question that arises for me is: Am I loving myself, all of my self, from the power-broker to the victim to lover of life, in this moment?
