A revolution that does not involve an escape from the ego is no revolution at all.
What about protests and uprisings? Exciting, a cause of great conflict, but activism only validates the legitimacy of centralized authority and does nothing to undo a system of egoic domination.
How about a violent overthrow? Terrifying, leaves a vacuum of power, and falls short of changing the way people think and behave.
Elections? You mean the ones run by a system of centralized authority designed to control and exploit you?
New technology? Possibly. Does it lead to the destruction of ego? Harmonious union? True abundance through creation being unleashed on a massive scale? Alignment with perfect love?
The world is insane. The wars, the exploitation, the destruction of the environment, the poverty, the general rudeness, aggression and ugliness that has become normal human interaction. Do you think any of this would change with a different party in power?
The cancer of the world is ego—a belief in separation, an identification with form which is manifested in attack. The consciousness revolution is the undoing of ego and the decentralization of a society based on the values of love.
We are currently stuck for one reason: we believe centralized authority has authority. Tomorrow we look, beyond fear, at a new social structure that is beginning to take form: decentralization.
The consciousness revolution is the only revolution that will lead to instant, lasting, fundamental change. It isn’t something we need to fight for—only look for within. It is a silent, peaceful shift and we do not need permission. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.
