DEFINITION of LISTENING, UNLEARNING, UNITY: BLACK LIVES MATTER: This is a moment ripe for mass healing. Ripe for the 99% of the world to unite against the system. The system that has systematically repressed, held down and used African American humans since they were captured in violence and brought to America as slaves. The collective soul wound and trauma that has resulted from these crimes against humanity is a massive pocket of evil that is still felt in righteous rage and needs to be witnessed by all with deep and heart-wrenching compassion. The traumas, rapes, murders and abuses that have befallen black and brown humans in this country since the beginning has been truly mind-blowing, all due to a system set up for a very small number of white people to profit and control the resources of the planet. This is the system that is the "soup we swim in", that we accept as reality without question, and which subconsciously programs us from birth. We, the 99% of people who want peace in the world and have love in our hearts, need to rise up TOGETHER against this system. We need to stand together and demand justice for all humans and sentient life and for the planet itself. Yes, Black Lives Matter DO matter, a lot...And this moment could be the tipping point that unites us all to throw off the yokes of the system for good. And then we can build a new paradigm, together.
