Inner Revolution

by Kay Packard

Krishnamurti said, “Change in society is of secondary importance; that will come about naturally, inevitably, when you as a human being bring about this change in yourself.” 

Only you can create the change you want to see in the world.  To see differently you must first examine your own thoughts and actions.  Then do something about that which no longer serves you.  Consider one thing in your life that isn’t working for you anymore.  Perhaps it’s an outdated belief, a relationship, a job, a personality trait, an addiction, a living condition, or simply a word.  Visualize that ‘something’ that is not working for you any longer. 

We can really get stuck in things that divide us from our core Self.  On one hand we desire peace and harmony and on the other we thrive on problem solving or believing ‘this will get better’.  Your intuitive self already knows the best way.  However, your patterns fixate you to the reoccurring and comfortable routine.  

If there is division within the self then there is conflict.  Conflict is actually an excellent force toward that which you do want.  So, do, be grateful for some level of internal disagreement and stress in your life.  However, use your discernment skills to assess how much internal clash is helpful for you. 

In my 20’s I worked in the Propulsion Lab of Hughes Space and Communications Company.  To position a satellite in space, liquid fuel was stored in tanks, carried through titanium tubing and ignited to create forceful flames for thrusting and boosting.  That burning fire is a source used to maneuver the spacecraft into the precise location and to keep it in position during its mission.  Exacting balance is required and combustion is actually a pathway to stability. 

Awakening

The balancing act of life requires opposites.  Transcendence of opposites brings a level of freedom because we are no longer attached to one side or the other.  To evolve we must experience the negative and the positive.  This doesn’t necessarily require discipline and control if the pattern can be recognized and modified or even released.  THIS is tricky business.  It’s not easy to see that which sits right before our very eyes.  A certain kind of ‘seeing’ is needed. 

Do you see with eyes of attachment or detachment?  Which might be more useful?  Or might a combination of the two be the best approach for positive change?  Only you can decide for yourself related to your particular ‘something’ that you’d like to alter, modify, transform or revolutionize.   

Suggestions for your inner revolution:

  • Pinpoint your Truth – now
  • Honor and aim for that Truth
  • Do what it takes to stay on course
  • Delight in your path
