We occupy this planet with our energies, our bodies, our thoughts, and our actions. I have a personal consciousness, and with every sentient being, there is a collective consciousness. We are all interconnected.
What does it mean to occupy anything? Webster’s defines occupy: to engage the attention or energies of ; or a : to take up (a place or extent in space)
How do I want to reside here? What is my purpose? The Occupy Movement is a powerful reaction to what my friend calls “capitalism gone awry.” Because people are standing up, or sitting down, for what they believe, we are seeing police brutality, and the rights of citizens to gather and exercise free speech being taken away.
As one who marched against the war in Vietnam, and marched for peace, I am grateful for the Occupy Movement. It is a vehicle for group consciousness to express the serious need for change.
In his support of the OM, spoken word poet, Drew Dellinger said we are a “planet-wide tribe” and “how can we ask for anything less than the future?” He said it is “time for the people to peacefully fight back.”
We are all occupied with the daily struggles and joys of life. We question how we will survive in this contentious climate of economic lack. Ultimately, the quest is to discover truth, and for many the journey is to find inner and outer peace. This encompasses finances, wellness, purpose, and passion — to live a bounteous life. In Drew’s video, a woman carries a sign painted: occupy my heart. This is certainly where my truth and the direction to my future lie.
J Krishnamurti said, “In oneself lies the whole world and if you know how to look and learn, the door is there and the key is in your hand. Nobody on earth can give you either the key or the door to open, except yourself.”
