Abortion: "an undertaking regarded by the speaker as unpleasant or badly made or carried out."
I've been largely silent during this current political landscape, but I'm hearing it's time I offer my perspective, and for those who've followed my story, you know I have to listen! As I see it, this crucial time is propelling us to a new evolution of humanity.
First, we need to determine what it is that we don't want, and that's exactly what our current politics (and leaders) are helping us do (and it doesn't matter which side you are on). Check.
Second, we need to determine what it is we DO want, and many of us are doing that right now. Check.
And lastly, we have to determine what it all means and where we are going with it. Not checked. Yet.
Let's take the current hot topic of abortion. Where we agree: No one wants to ever have to make that decision. No one wants the women they love to be placed in a life-threatening situation. WE ARE ALL ON THE SAME PAGE. We're just going about it from a political position, "the old way of doing things."
THAT'S what we are being forced to take a hard look at, being forced to change the structure.
What we are attempting to create right now is a world where there is no need for abortions because everyone is respected. Everyone makes a choice that is best for all. We won't have to abort because of lack of finances or food or family support, because those will be provided. We won't have to abort because of rape or incest because, when everyone respects everyone and acts as if we are all one, those acts won't exist anymore. Pregnancy will occur because that choice will be best for ALL involved.
Unbelievable? Impossible, you say?
But that's what this political landscape is trying to get us to see, albeit obliviously.
It's happening right now.
We're just going about it using the old paradigm, the old way of doing things.
This is how the human race is attempting to reach our goal of WE ARE ALL ONE. No one said it was going to be easy, but these are the first, extremely important steps.
I don't believe we are going backwards as a country, quite the opposite actually. I think we are charging forward in forcing us to unite for the common well-being of all. Appearances are deceiving, don't buy into the illusion.
So now, what do we do about it? Start having conversations about what is best for all. Discuss what: "What you do to yourself you do to all and what you do to others you do to yourself" really means to you. Envision what your world looks like when this becomes reality. Talk about it.
These aren't black or white conversations. Not republican or democrat. Not progressive or conservative.
These are humanitarian conversations. Have them. Join us on the cutting edge of change, it's what America is doing right now.
Believe it or not.
(I hope to begin holding discussion groups about this new paradigm...anyone want to join me?)
Carrie, with a lot of Spiritual guidance!
