Any revolution that does not involve an escape from the ego is no revolution at all.
What about huge protests and uprisings? This type of activism only validates the legitimacy of centralized authority (making it seem more real) 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 maintain power so that they may continue 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 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.
The consciousness revolution—the silent revolution of awakening within—is the only revolution that will lead to instant, lasting, fundamental change. It isn’t something we need to fight for. We need only decide that we want it. So far, not many people want it because they have yet to escape ego.
