Lynne Twist, co-founder of the PachaMama Alliance said something during the holidays that made a deep impression on me…
“The next decade is maybe the most important decade in the history of the world. 2020-2030 is where we absolutely got to turn around the global warming crisis, where we absolutely have to address the breakdown in governments and social justice. How are we going to end 2019 in a way that we move into 2020 with integrity and heart?”
Michael Beckwith, founder of Agape says: “We feel Joy when we are in integrity with our soul.” I resonate completely with that experience, and I believe that at this time of our personal and global transformation, bringing soul Joy into ALL areas of our life is key.
And, it presents us with some unpleasant challenges…
Marianne Williamson, author of A Return to Love”and presidential candidate said recently something along these lines: We as light-workers, as people on a spiritual path, have already created great changes in the world. In fact, whatever area we as a group chose to engage in, is changing as a result!
Take health, take relationships, take business, take environment… Even if there’s way to go still, so much progress has happened, there is so much more awareness, including in the main stream culture.
What Marianne Williamson then said was that there are some areas of life that have been so corrupted, so permeated by greed, power-games and disconnection from God that our natural reaction as spiritual beings was to turn our back on it all, to avoid it completely. And as a result there are areas of life where, globally speaking, little change has happened.
To give you a couple of examples, politics is one such area. We prefer to avoid watching news. Finances is another such area. We avoid engaging much with money. We don’t find much joy there and for good reasons! However…
There is now a need (and I see more and more spiritual leaders and teachers around the world express this)…There is a need for us to engage in all of it. In other words, the time has come to bring light, love and joy to all of it, not just some of it.
Of course, we will all do it differently, it’s a personal choice.
Personally, I can’t really see myself engage in politics. But maybe it will change at some point? Perhaps there comes a time where the Joy Keepers Network begins to interact with politicians? Who knows… But when it comes to creating a joyful relationship with money, that’s something that I actually have been interested in for a long time and feel called to.
How do you feel about all this?
