Activism: The Way to Demonstrate Your Spirituality


Activism is what the Earth needs right now especially from conscious individuals, conscious groups and conscious communities. Those who started their awakening process most likely can see that we are living in maya (as the ancient Buddhist teachings tell us), a fake world of deception or a giantMatrix. Many have already begun to see that close to everything is fake, from MSM (Mainstream Media) news to food to scientific research to Government itself. While it is true that to be effective we must address the cause of the problem – the dysfunction of the mind/ego complex inside all of us – it is also true that merely trying to be more spiritual or become enlightened in your own isolated and separate bubble is not going to help the state of the world and alleviate others’  suffering very much. Sure, by focusing on your own enlightenment you can avoid adding to the collective misery and pain, but what is the point of all that enlightenment if you’re not going to do anything with it?

The Enlightened State Recognizes that We Are All One Being

A characteristic of the truly enlightened state is the deep recognition that we are all connected, and that in fact we are literally all one being. Therefore, a natural corollary of becoming more enlightened that you would intuitively feel the urge to help those around you, with whom you are connected by love. How can you truly have inner peace when you look into your brother’s or sister’s eye and see pain and suffering? That is also your pain and suffering, because I am you and you are me.

We are all in this together. Didn’t a great spiritual master of 2000 years ago say that we must forgive our brothers and sisters, and make things right with them, before attempting to enter the temple of God (i.e. go within to feel inner peace)?

Becoming More Conscious = Ending Denial

To me, becoming more conscious means becoming more integrated and whole. It means accepting things as they are and giving up the constant need to judge and complain. It also means ending denial, for whatever you deny, you push away and refuse to look at. This may be the parts of your personality that you don’t like. It may also be parts of what is happening in the world that are too “heavy”, “intense” or “negative” for you to handle. Yet, it is an energetic truth that whatever you deny or repress only grows stronger. It festers and ferments in the shadows and returns, often in an even worse form, when you least want or expect it. One way or another, you’re going to have to deal with it. Why not do it right now?


Can Truly Conscious People Ignore the Worldwide Conspiracy Around Us?

There is a common belief prevalent among those in spiritual or conscious communities – namely that we should leave activism to others, and that we should not worry about the bad state of the world or focus on it too much, because whatever we focus on we create, and obviously we do not wish to create more pain. While this is true, it is also used as an excuse by many to hide behind denial. Part of the enlightenment process is to confront the dark and transmute it – not to ignore and hope with wishful thinking that it will just magical go away.

Remember what the most beloved US President of all, JFK, had to say in 1961:

“For we are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies on covert means for expanding its sphere of influence – on infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of elections, on intimidation instead of free choice, on guerrillas by night instead of armies by day. It is a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit, highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific and political operations.

Its preparations are concealed, not published. Its mistakes are buried, not headlined. Its dissenters are silenced, not praised. No expenditure is questioned, no rumor is printed, no secret is revealed.”

It is an open secret that JFK was killed not by Lee Harvey Oswald by rather by this close-knit group of powerful individuals who felt very threatened by his desire to end secrecy and expose the conspiracy to light. JFK was assassinated 52 years ago. Have we gotten past our denial and apathy, and gotten any closer to integrating this dark side of our world? Have we confronted the truth that wealthy bankers, businessmen and military-intelligence heads run the Government, not politicians? Have we educated ourselves enough to see through the web of lies being spun by the MSM? Or have we pushed it all to the recesses of our consciousness and thought “someone else can deal with it”? Are you accepting that you can’t handle the truth? Are you conscious enough to deal with the reality of what is happening on planet Earth?

Activism: Enlightened Action is the Complementary Outflow of the Enlightened State

Yes, we must take care of our inner state before we can hope to change the outer state (our society) for the better. However, what the world really needs right now is activism – enlightened action from an enlightened state. We need people to stand for peace and, with activism, challenge the war-loving governments of the world. We need people to stand for justice and, with activism, speak up against ongoing 21st century genocide (as the Zionist regime of Israel is doing to the Palestinians). We need people to stand for clean food by educating themselves about the dangers of GMOs and, with activism, demanding chemical-free food. We need people to stand for sovereignty and human rights in the face of corrupt courts that are happy to take away your freedom to make it easier for corporations and politicians to rule over you.

And so, I put out a call to all people on the conscious road: make activism part of your spiritual path. The joy you will feel from making the world a better place, of making a real difference, will be profound. Remember the vow of the Bodhisattva: to attain complete enlightenment for the sake of all sentient beings. We need to translate the divine inner peace of our inner states to the concrete action of activism in the outer world to end suffering.

    Yes, I’m all for it. Though I don’t know always what my activism causes in backfiring matters.
    Such as guilt and shame. I’m pretty much a rebel and typical Dutch, outspoken. In the UK, where I live now, moving through adjustment and culture shock in my first year here, I’ve noticed a complacency and tiredness of spirit that is baffling.

    A few months ago, at the height of my fury about complacency here (the approaching Referendum for UK membership in or out the EU showed me the evidence of it) I was at a busstop asking directions. The English timetables are most complicated and unclear. When I comment on it,
    people around me say “Oh, but we can’t do without complaining about public transport, it’s our favorite hobby!” typical British humour.

    Anyway, back on topic, in that busstop I waited for a response and I could see one of the waiting passengers taking a timetable on paper out of his pocket. Than, he began a conversation with his companion, without paying attention what was in his hand. I waited while looking at him, but no…
    there seemed to be no hope for advise. Suddenly all of my anger shot up and I shouted “You people, you all need a hard push in the butt and wake up, your country is being taken from you”

    The acoustics in the busstop were excellent and a shockwave moved through all the bodies around me. If there’s one thing the English don’t do, is making waves in that way in public. I was a bit shocked by my outburst and walked away to a cafe on the beach, in order to calm myself down.
    I’d never done such a thing and although I felt shame and guilt, at the same time I had a wide grin on my face for having shaken up that complacency.

    Once I found a place to sit, with a view on the sea, I decided to walk back to the busstop and offer my apologies. I didn’t look forward to be looked at as the weird woman who lost her marbles, ha ha.
    But I honestly felt I should offer my apologies, so I ran back, walked slowly and calm to the still waiting passengers in the busstop and offered my apologies. They just looked at me with glazed eyes, silent and very very cautious. The ripples of that shockwave hadn’t subsided yet, ha ha…

    Later that day, when I told of it to a girlfriend, who’s British, she laughed and said “That’s so typical English, to be passive when offered apologies, specially in public. It’s so not done here. But it’s an hilarious story and very good of you to have done that. That will teach them”.

    She than began to tell me of her own outburst in an event in a pub once, with all of her larger family, kicking the table in anger and upsetting the whole constellation, also literally. She had the same rush of anger, after building up pressure for a while. Hmmm…. there is of course a way to channel those kind of frustrations, by screaming in remote areas, kicking the dough hard, or turning the soil for a couple of hours, pretty full on.

    I’m saying goodbye to the village where I’ve lived for 1 year and since I know everybody almost, all have told me that they felt like my arrival was a breath of fresh air and a wake up call to end their complacency and laziness in thinking for themselves, excersize and outdoor activities.

    This is a complete surprise to me, for seldom have I received the same feedback while living in Holland. Let’s see what happens in the next chapter of my life, with the residents of the village I’m going to live soon. Nearer to where I wish to be in the UK, a druid county.

    My long replies here may raise questions in some of you, about the reason why I’m talking about my life in the real world out there….

    I strongly believe in the (presence) presenting of that 3D physical world, while communicating online.
    Without it the exchange of words remains on a rather vague and insubstantial level, as I perceive it.
    Also it’s a best possible way to include our physical awareness and body language, our senses and their messages, enhancing our self-reflection. Not restricted to our 3rd eye or 6th chakra activity, immersed in what’s perceived on screen and in “the cloud” hovering above it, so to speak.

    We’ve got often no idea about who the person is behind the world on that flat 2 dimensional screen, do we? The full body presence while communicating online makes a huge difference in conveying who we truly are and what our intentions are, finding resonance in a constructive way when that is our desire.

  2. Oh, I truly think living on this planet is free of interest, thatcrazytoaster. You’ve got the full and bright right to be alive and kicking, as much as you like. Just like me and everybody else, trailblazing 🙂
