Realize Your Potential: Occupy is a Consciousness-Expanding Phenomenon
By David DeGraw /

The global Occupy movement is much more than an economic or political movement. Occupy is a consciousness-expanding phenomenon.

The same people who mocked us before Occupy started, and said that there would never be a non-violent civil disobedience movement throughout the US, are now the same people saying that Occupy was a once in a lifetime or generational event. What these people fail to grasp or refuse to acknowledge is that Occupy was the first wave of a tsunami of transformation that has just begun to wash over the planet. It’s the first wave of evolution from a quickly maturing Internet generation. We are developing a highly sophisticated collective consciousness that transcends the conditioning of archaic shortsighted greed-addicted forces.

Every day more and more people are using the Internet to become more and more aware of the forces that limit human potential. And as their awareness grows, they are using the Internet to connect, communicate and organize with millions of other aware citizens on a scale unprecedented in human history. Occupy is the first cohesive expression of this evolution. It is the first ray of the new rising sun.

Occupy represents the new world evolving and transforming out of the old world. Occupy shifted mass consciousness and planted a flag in the global mental atmosphere. A critical mass of humanity is now awake and aware of the obsolete systems that limit our potential.

The fact that our economic, political and legal system has been overrun with corruption and is unjust, unsustainable and unstable is the awareness and common sense that unifies us all. The understanding that we need to transcend current economic and political realities, shift the paradigm, is what unifies us all.

Our current system of power and domination is built on manipulation and deceit. In the age of the Internet, they will no longer get away with it. It is an outdated paradigm; it’s an obsolete system of rule. Occupy represents the polar opposite to this system. Instead of manipulating and deceiving people, Occupy empowers them. This is an evolved approach.

The more you empower people, the more empowered you become. It creates a positive feedback loop, an evolutionary feedback loop that cannot be stopped.

The birth of the global Occupy movement was the big bang of humanity’s next phase of evolution. It created an unprecedented wild new ecosystem of energy throughout the world, an ecosystem of mass transformation. It empowered a new generation of aware and engaged leaders. Quickly evolving clusters of imaginal cells. Millions of people turned on, let out of the propaganda cage, freed from the mental police state, freed from conditioned consciousness.

That’s one way to conceptualize something so massive on a global scale. Another way, Occupy is humanity’s immune system, clusters of antibodies attacking the pathogen of greed, defending humanity against a virus, defense against systemic corruption and pathological shortsighted greed, humanity’s most severe disease.

The language of modern politics and economics is the language of a caveman, it’s all grunting noise once you tap into global consciousness and understand the potential and power that exists within us.

Watching Republicans and Democrats fight with each other is like watching two cavemen throw rocks at each other. It’s like listening to dinosaurs roar in the last days after the meteor hit.

Our government was created in the days of the horse and buggy. It took days or weeks to send one hand written message. People didn’t have the ability to instantaneously communicate with someone on the other side of the world. People didn’t have access to unlimited information at their fingertips. People couldn’t go online and take a course from MIT or watch a video lecture on quantum physics in the convenience of their own home.

A child with a smart phone in hand has more computing power than the president of the United States had only 25 years ago.

Time to evolve our system of government, don’t ya think?

Liquid democracy is where it’s at. Adapt or die, Mr. Washington.

As Jefferson prophetically put it, “Every generation needs a new revolution.”

We will soon have new ways of living that will make our modern age like look the stone age – alternative governments, alternative monetary systems, alternative energy, alternative healthcare, alternative education, alternative media, alternative food systems, the list goes on and on.

Occupy is a consciousness-expanding phenomenon.

Just choose a cause, an issue, a problem, a solution, an alternative, an action, a tactic, a location and set a date, and you can find a substantial group of people prepared to stand up and evolve with you, right now.

Make your intent clear. Organize, amplify and exemplify, and a community will quickly grow.

Organize, amplify and exemplify.

Play your cards right, build a network of like-minded groups, and you too will spark a mass movement that tears a hole through the sky and evolves society and humanity.

Decentralized self-organizing networks are organically growing and evolving, unleashing human potential far beyond what has previously existed. With each successive wave, strategies are honed, sophistication and effectiveness grow.

The ecosystem of mass transformation is now in place. One person with a smart phone in hand can spark a movement that topples a corrupt regime and evolves present circumstances.

We all aspire to freedom. Deep down in the source of our being, we all want to live free in a society where we can thrive, where we can work passionately at something to improve the human condition, and at the same time be able to take care of our children, give them a solid education, have quality medical care and keep a roof over their head in a healthy environment. That’s what we want from life. And with modern technology that is now something we can all truly achieve.

Sustainable prosperity for all is within reach.

Above all, we are in this together. We are people with opinions across the political and cultural spectrum coming together to find common ground. We are coming together to transcend conditioned consciousness, to transcend groupthink, to transcend divide-and-conquer propaganda.

We have now entered a new age of enlightenment. The renaissance has begun. The evolution is in process. Another world is happening.

Transcend conditioned consciousness. Free your mind. Occupy your potential. Now is our time.

Welcome to the ecosystem of mass transformation. Tap in.
