The way that so-called "education" works in America is such that these conformity factories spit out a huge inventory of linear thinkers, people who are tragically unable to access their creativity in a constructive way toward understanding problems and engaging in the process of solving them. Those struck worse with this tragic disability are often promoted to the ranks of newscasters, politicians and bank CEOs. With their combined power they tell the rest of the country how to perceive what is going on with #OccupyWallStreet. They try to attach it to a specific group, a union, a candidate, but never really stop to question the sentiment that is driving this whole thing and the spiritual crisis which it represents.
When all the noisequiets down, it will become clear that #OccupyWallStreet is not so much about this issue or that, but rather it is a call to evolve. Evolution generally occurs as a response to a crisis. And we are facing a very serious crisis - one that the talking heads on TV and the sign carriers on the streets have only begun to address in fractions, in pieces. The crisis we face can be explained in very simple terms however - that the way in which we are living is simply unsustainable. We must evolve or leave a cruel apocalyptic legacy to the next generations to try to survive through. Any discussion of evolution that does not include a discussion of the glue that holds everything together, that being CONSCIOUSNESS, is an incomplete discussion. To me, and to many others as well, #OccupyWallStreet is the first bold collective step towards an evolution of consciousness.
"Why should there be hunger and deprivation in any land, in any city, at any table, when man has the resources and the scientific know-how to provide all mankind with the basic necessities of life?" ~Martin Luther King, Jr.
