I used to watch videos like this. Watching youth getting jazzed would give me a chill (a real thing) that would go all the way up my spine. But now, I only get a small shiver that is felt in only a small section of my spine. Is my physical response sending me a message?
When I watch videos like this, I know their intent is good. They are trying to get youth inspired, which is most important. But now I watch things like this and feel deeply that something is missing. This approach, exciting as it may be, has been attempted over the ages in different forms and mediums, and yet NOTHING has changed – Our situation has only gotten worse, hasn’t it?
I listen to my own voice monitoring what I am seeing, with the question ‘what is truth?’, while assuming my own voice may not be correct. The voice that speaks back is my TRUTH, as I see it today. Unfortunately, the truth that speaks is nothing close to what juiced up videos like this are trying to offer. SO WHAT IS MISSING?
Listen to the language in the video – It’s of ‘revolution’, not ‘evolution’. It is NOT about ‘evolving’, but rather about ‘revolting’. This is nothing but the same, which we have all seen through the millennia.
Humanity can NOT go through another REVOLUTION … It will take ALL of us down, not just some of us. The next revolution will be humanity’s last.
Instead, how do we move ourselves into an awareness of EVOLUTIONARY (not revolutionary) perspective? I want to see the youth dancing to an evolved way of being. No more to fighting what has never worked, except for an elitist few. It is time we tell that new story differently – the story of an evolved humanity.
I say this to the youth mostly … Since my generation, and those before me, have failed their future: WE NOW HAVE TO DEPEND ON YOU. MAKE IT SO. I for one will be there to support you in anyway that I can. Just call on me (Vic Desotelle 831-515-8141 email).
