We must take action. Spirituality without physical action is not true spirituality- because spirituality is about our real relationship with the present moment and the intent we wield in that present moment. Intention without action is not true intention. Intent equals action. When you intend to lift your hand, your hand lifts. When you intend to care for the other, you physically care for the other.
It is all too easy for the ego to justify inaction as the right thing to do. True loving intent questions even that, and sacrifices one’s comfort and certainty in the name of the whole whenever necessary.
We must take personal responsibility for our place in the world! In fact, we must take personal responsibility for the whole world!
Simultaneously, we do not need to be overwhelmed with the scope of the change required. We simply need to act where we are. As the saying goes, you must be the change that you wish to see in the world.
But this does not mean that you need to lose your peace. Your true nature transcends the rigorous “external” context. Your true nature is far greater than the ample opportunity around you to actualize that nature into our world. You are peace, and love, and freedom, and joy! And as you know that, you are able to then bring that to those around you in important physical and tangible ways. As you actualize both that physical change and also that change in your own consciousness, you help fulfill your extremely important role in the great expansion of being that is happening through this place.
