I can answer this now. We ALL know someone in each of these categories. But how close are we to them? Have we spoken to them recently or are they just a name on a screen we avoid. Have we spent time having (albeit a difficult) conversation with them about their life experience, their childhood, their conditioning that brought them to the state they are in now?
Have we shown them that they are safe to express what they think and feel, or have we rejected them? Have we discussed differing views and ideas from a place of care, understanding and curiosity? If someone is reactive do we attack or throw our hands up and walk away? Or do we ask, HOW ARE THEY REALLY DOING? HOWS THEIR HEART? HOWS THEIR MIND? WHERE IS THE PAIN COMING FROM? HOW CAN WE HELP?
How can we come from a place of understanding and compassion - in our community NOW - to be part of a lasting solution to all these things that divide us?
To be brave and have the difficult conversations instead of bullying behind a keyboard and hoping that it all gets sorted by someone else.
How incredible would our world be if we could evolve on all these issues as one, even with our different conditioning, beliefs and opinions. To hold space for each other evolve and heal from old conditioning thats keeping so many stuck in a space of fear.
Some may call it impossible but waiting for an organisation or government to fix a problem hasn’t provided us with any lasting change. The way I see it, your life, your love, your community is your ground zero. Ready to get uncomfortable? Think of 5 people on your friend list that you DONT agree with and ask them if they are ok? Hold that space for them if they are not.
Statistically, so many of you won’t do this, will YOU though?
