“Do not be satisfied with the stories that come before you. Unfold your own myth.” - Rumi
Everywhere I look I am being “lobbied.” There are the political lobbyists, spiritual lobbyists, social activist lobbyists, materialism lobbyists, food lobbyists, life-style lobbyists, and our friends all lobbying on behalf of their causes. How do I sort these out?
So, let me be forthright. I am a soul lobbyist. I am passionate about each and every person finding their own truth, their own passion, their own unique self.
I deeply hold that as each of us discovers our true and unique self from deep spiritual inquiry and radical honesty we will be inexorably motivated to contribute in our own unique ways to the evolution of our species toward the highest good. Our personal calls to action will rise up out of deep soul connections from a place of infinite possibilities, including those of all those lobbyists in our lives.
When I inquiry deeply into what is behind the current “Occupy Movement” I feel a strong need to be seen and heard arising from my “other selves” — you. I feel this need to be seen and respected resonating from Being to Being below the level of symptoms. I hear “feel my pain, feel my longing for parity, see my tears, and feel my anger at injustice and blind eyes.” This is a primordial call to Oneness — “What you do to the least of my brethren you do unto me.”
I am deeply inspired to reaffirm my own soul’s journey into continued awakening, watching and “at the ready” as my own myth unfolds and points the way. I will do whatever it asks of me. I will continue to occupy myself first, and from this place passionately embrace whatever may arise from my others selves - you; calling me to action.
Thank you Rumi.
