In the words of that poet Bruce Hornsby, “Somethings will never change, ah, but don’t you believe them.”
If your ancestors and mine had believed in the slave holders, segregationists and misogynistic titans who said that nothing would ever change, where would we be?
Today, there is a new kind of gatekeeper, but they are telling the same lie; “You’ll never make it, somethings will never change, and that’s just the way it is.”
Ah, but don’t you believe them.
You can make a difference, in your life and the environment around you.
To be consciously connected means to be consciously and intentionally connected to yourself and then to other like-hearted people.
You must first become aware of your true self; your core, the person you were always meant to be.
When you peel away the layers of what you’ve accepted, “just enough to get by,” and going along to get along, day in and day out, you will see the self you’ve left behind.
Once you’ve connected to your true self, you can consciously connect to the beauty of the world around you.
You will be able to make deliberate connections to like-minded folks. When you do, you will raise the vibration of the environment at home, work and in your community.
Others will be able to change and grow, or they will fade into the background of the conscious play you are creating.
If this sounds a bit new-agey, look around. Your phone has become smarter than you are and you get mad at your own computerized car.
The world is changing come along.
Be you, be well, be conscious.
