“We who believe in freedom shall not rest until it comes.”
— Ella Baker
Revolution is not a lazy man’s path because true revolution requires unrelenting truth.
It requires the willingness to let everything you knew, everything you believed, everything you thought + everything you loved to catch flame + catch fire + crumble to the ground in a blazing inferno.
Revolution is not safe or sanitary.
It is not prim, polished or perfect.
There are no promises in revolution.
But revolution must always come if we are to make way for revolution.
When you ignite revolution from the inside out, you turn over your power and need to control and be in charge and run things to the Source-beyond-source, the divine creator and orchestrator of all that is.
Your ego gets out of the driver’s seat and remembers that God is the designated driver of all existence — including you.
When you ignite inner revolution, you stop pretending + performing perfection + align with soul which knows that ALL is already perfect, whole, ever expanding good.
There is nothing to fear and no need to pretend.
When you ignite revolution from the inside out, you surrender your weaponry of greed and desperation and laziness.
You come out from the bunkers of shame.
You set fire to the effigies of yourself, resurrected as false pretense.
You emerge from the fire of rebirth, blackened and whole — ready for whatever is in front of you.
Because inner revolution is inner alignment — self with soul with God.
Knowing that no weapon formed against you can thrive, stepping into all that you are and ever will be, in the eternal now.
Successful external revolutions only happen when you’ve woken up and have a revolution from within.
Put down your arms of perfection + performance.
Put down your arms of outsourced self-protection.
Put down your arms of blissful ignorance.
Put down your arms of wanting to be rescued.
This is it, baby. You are here to birth a new world.
It might look worse before it gets better.
So, hold fast. Stay focused. Keep your eye on the prize.
You are not a victim of life or circumstance.
You are more powerful than you know. Your soul is your savior — Align to it. Listen to it. Trust it. Be devoted to it.
No one outside of you is your authority.
Do not be distracted by people clamoring for your attention, trying to get you focused on THEIR priorities.
Stay the course as dictated by your own inner wisdom and create the life you want to live. Birth the world you want to occpy.
Liars gonna lie.
Colonizers gonna colonize.
Manipulators gonna manipulate.
Let them be themselves.
They are none of your business. Your work — your very sacred, one-of-a-kind, unprecedented, unparalleled, revolutionary work is the ONLY thing in front of you.
Let everything else fall away.
Be who you were born to be so that you can do what you were born to do.
No more waiting.
This is what inner revolution makes possible.
Now is your time. RISE.
