Our Energy Quality Determines Our Output Quality

At some point, humanity’s fear of the unknown becomes eclipsed by its horrible realization of what is known, because the evidence can no longer be denied, suppressed, or ignored. Such moments historically mark the occasions when human beings coalesce to bring about change.

Unfortunately, when we wait to initiate change until we absolutely hate what is present, real and true for us all, we then usually resort to desperate measures. These include warfare, bullying, suppression of competing ideas and beliefs, torture, mass murder, wholesale destruction of social institutions, etc.

These desperate measures mean we begin our new (next) social iteration from a place of conquest and destruction. That in turn leads to a fear that at some point we may ourselves be conquered by the formerly vanquishes. Our fear of such a conquest forcing us to regress back to the horrible times we are seeking to flee from means our institutions are grounded in preventing conquest, rather than in promoting the social welfare of the citizenry.

But what happens if, instead of coming from fear of our own past, we come instead from a state of quiet confidence that the changes we collectively wish to explore are being investigated to discover whether or not they might carry us to a HIGHER state of being than we are presently experiencing—even if there’s nothing significantly “wrong” with our present conditions. In that instance, we would be building and imagining new systems based on expanding and improving what’s already working, and on the playful and loving exploration of our own, already competent, capacities.

Clearly then, the ENERGY behind any impulse to change matters. When we seek to change something from a place of trust in our innate capacities, of openness to any new feedback that may arise, of courage in the face of the unknown, of compassion for ourselves whenever the conditioned impulse to express ourselves using the “old ways” arises, of patience with ourselves whenever our vision falters, and with a sense of inner peacefulness that what we are choosing can be intentionally redirected by life, with love, if that becomes necessary, then the new systems and capacities we manifest will surely be far, far different from the social systems and human capacities we’ve thus far manifested.
