Everyone’s been primed by years of popular post-apocalyptic movies/shows, as well as a growing sense of dread and a general intuition that something’s gotta give soon. Please stay calm and let your better nature win out, humans. We can use this opportunity to transcend ourselves.~Caitlin Johnstone
How do we navigate this new territory
so long astray? Our browsing history
composed of questions avoided, rejected
spaces we cannot traverse. We’ve erected
walls of beliefs, each brick of fear
cages us helpless. Still this is the year
we rise above the paradigm, high time
we use heart speech. Abandon greed
capitalism revealed can never feed
our connected souls. Each essential voice
rejoice, we hold the space
receive your unique gift with grace.
We open up, distribute what’s been
hoarded, abundance flow escapes
the sordid hold. This new landscape
revealed, at last we see the web
connecting every living being,
a network respecting what we bring,
how we laugh and cry and love and sing.
