As America celebrates Independence Day this year, many are not feeling so independent. After being quarantined in our homes for months, our routines disrupted, jobs lost, asked to wear masks and gloves when going out for essentials, loved ones dying because of this virus, fear spreading everywhere and unrest in the streets, we’ve become more and more depended on a system that is collapsing before our eyes. America was founded on the truth that all men are created equal and we have the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. These principles were encoded with a spiritual energy that when fully understood and implemented created a power connecting humanity to infinite intelligence.
The magnitude of the words that the Declaration for Independence message was revealing has been forgotten. Some how we have strayed so far off course we can not go back to find it. We must now create a new road map. We must forge ahead and construct a path that is sustainable, practical, feasible, flexible, and possible. We must create a new declaration.
I believe that we need to celebrate interdependence. We need each other more than ever. Nothing functions independently in nature. Everything is connected. Our bodies work the same way. Sickness occurs when our cells are miscommunicating with one another. The planet is ailing because we have disconnected with nature. This is the major problem of the world today.
Just like addicts, we have become co-dependent. Relying too heavily on one another weakens the whole. There is a price to pay for freedom, health, happiness, and the good things in life. It is taking responsibility for your thoughts, words, actions, and deeds. What role can you take this Independence Day that will bring this change into the world? How can you show up differently? Who can you collaborate with to create something positive? Where can you go to look for answers? We are interdependent beings, connected by invisible threads. When we learn how to communicate harmoniously we will restore life, liberty and be happy!
