the time of tents is over

Occupy, in its mindset, is replaying the last breath of a revolutionary alternative to Capitalism from forty years ago... It is as if the children of the hippies and Maoists had taken to the streets to re-enact the dreams of their parents...

Power has now moved way from a centre, a head, a building, a location... People that are tied to a place are powerless...

All too easily Occupy has become two things: a thing that you LIKE on Facebook, and a personal self-improvement/endurance test in a tent. Neither of which have any effect on the flow of capital.

Capital does not occupy, it abandons, that is its threat and its power. To overthrow it we too must abandon, not occupy. We must abandon the non-places that Capital has colonised our countries with and invest in rebuilding real places once again. We must move our money to local credit unions, to local commodities and jobs; to circulation with local people. We must take what little we have and invest it in the places we inhabit and we must abandon their places, their malls and streets, their stores and banks. This is how we occupy. Not by pitching a tent on a piece of land and saying Here I am, count my number. But by silence, secrecy and abandonment.

The time of tents is over.

awakening from the darkness

For too long we, the human race, have been asleep spiritually.

We have forgotten our divinity and worthiness, and we have given away our power and uniqueness. We have allowed a few to control and mould us en-masse into something we are not by nature. We have let others impose limitations on us, thinking mistakenly that this will make us feel accepted, loved, valued or safe. This is why there is so much pain and suffering within the world.

Do not blame others, or God, for this, for we are all responsible, individually and collectively, for accepting this situation.

Now it is time to waken up and reconnect with our essential divinity and worthiness. Then we will see beyond the illusions of hierarchies and separation: our apparent limitations will fade away.

Your are not your social status, race, or religion. You are not the reflection or projection of another. You are a caretaker of Mother Earth, and all life upon her - we all are. We are all responsible for ourselves and for looking after each other.

We have been in darkness for a long time, but a new dawn is rising. Now we are awakening to the light that was always hidden within each and every one of us. Now we are tuning in to the waves of love and potential that are pulling our vibrational frequencies upwards.

Now we are remembering once again our divinity, our value, and our inner power. Now we are connecting to our hearts and souls, and our inner love light is starting to radiate out to others.

Now we are joining together, not for selfish ends, but for the highest good of all.
