Sunday’s SE MI Zeitgeist Meeting / Call to action!
In an effort to keep the lines of communication open we wanted to make sure that you are aware that we ARE having our monthly meeting this Sunday as planned. The meeting is at the Novi Public Library at 1:00 PM.
A lot of great things are happening behind the scenes these days, which is mainly what we will be reporting on during the meeting. We have at least five people that are actively working different initiatives and we expect to have some positive reports during the meeting.
We will also be talking about initiatives that we need help with. We will have a number of initiatives that YOU can personally be a part of!
On that same note, many of you have emailed with fire in your hearts, but most of the time that fire obviously, unfortunately subsides. This is obvious due to your lack of communication, attendance, & involvement.
So why is this?
We gave this thought challenge to one of the individuals that has been very active with the chapter (David). After talking at great lengths with active members (and watching a lot of J. Krishnamurti videos) he created the following statement:
Changes in perception can be caused by very subtle occurrences. The simple occurrence of learning a new word can vastly change how one perceives the world. When the cryptic symbols above a door are suddenly perceived as the word “Enter”, a whole new level of possibility, a new opportunity for insight is revealed. Once we perceive, we have the capacity to comprehend. Comprehension however, is only thought. Thought cannot change anything. Thought does not take us through the door. Thought will not bring us into the new realm of insight. Thought/Comprehension is only the key to unlock the door. Action is the child of comprehension, just as comprehension is the child of perception.
Each of us took the first step toward radical (fundamental) revolution of the mind when we decided to change our perceptions by watching the Zeitgeist movies and getting in touch with your local chapter. We were already aware, prior to viewing, that there was a crisis. We are now aware that it is a “crisis in consciousness”. It is “a crisis that cannot, anymore accept the old norms.” Once something is known, it can never be unknown. We can deny it. We can try to forget it, but it will always be there, “like a splinter in your mind”.
Comrades, this is a call to action! We act because the old norms are no longer acceptable, no longer feasible, no longer tolerable, and no longer suitable to a human existence. Once we begin to see the bars of our prison, at what point do we stop trying to escape? I say never! Action must be taken, because we can no longer live the way we did before our perceptions changed. Let us now act together, each of us doing our part, using our unique strengths, using our unique abilities. Each of us was born to play a part in demanding, acquiring, and securing our collective freedom. Our destinies have been crossed, and the movement is gaining momentum. We are one, let us act as one!
David, we applaud your (and J.K.’s) ability to put these thoughts into such clear statements. We hope that the above thoughts may help re-ignite that fire within all that receive this email!
Don’t worry about sending an RSVP, don’t worry about having a plan when you arrive, just show up and be counted!
See you Sunday,
