In truth, that is the un justice you are really fighting on the streets. It just looks like a "today" problem, but these patterns have been repeating themselves since the dawn of time. Don't you think more personal responsibility to heal would be teaching your children the truth and how to be the love you want to be and see in the world?
What holds you in the bondage of your past? How are you dealing with your pain ? Protesting? Fighting? Creating another cause? All conflict begins and ends within you. Marching does not make anything "right" it opposes, creating more conflict.
How do you think your children are learning to be the love you want to see in the world through your resistance? They are not. They are like most trying to use the same consciousness that created the problem to solve it.
There are ways to show your children without dividing their minds and hearts to be part of the loving solution by being the example of how you love yourself more and come back to the heart of peace when you find yourself conflicted. Don't share the story of your pain with them, turn their faces from it and show them the truth of life, the love of life, the God within it, and the perfection within everything.
Taking personal responsibility for the pain that keeps you trying to "right" the injustices of the world, (operative word being world) is the only way to heal the past and create a loving future.
Ancestral patterns created in the world continue to be passed down not genetically (that is binding and limiting human excuse for repeating unwanted behaviour) but through ignor-ance passed down generation after generation ENERGETICALLY . So the patterns are in you and perpetuated in the life you create until transformed, most often disguised as 'different' behaviour than your experience or someone else's story of it.
Isn't the perceived oppression of your parents when you were a child the REAL reason you oppose those like Trump? Your unspoken words as a child stuck in your craw. . . Don't you see people like him are just pushing a hot button already there? Can you see the truth for a minute and realize that our unhealed pain creates that reflection in external reality??? I know, I know, I am the bad guy now. . . simply by saying what you do not want to hear. Isn't that again your parents? Yes, it is , I know so.
There has not been ONE negative thought or feeling I have had where I couldn't go within and find my wounded child feeling that way at hands of either parent or one of my hurtful siblings.
Many of you convince yourself that because you are marching with a soy latte and malla beads on your left wrist, that somehow this makes your resistance (key word resistance) more spiritual or evolved.
My mother could have been considered a slave owner the way she ran 7 of her 8 children to do her chores. All of my rage about that could have been projected from within out into the world and I could have created the biggest march in history, against the parents! Humans are forever searching for something external to blame on their internal pain.
By today's neanderthalic standards I could argue, and unfortunately be supported, that her behaviour is inherent in her Germanic/ English genetics, (because she is white, the most commonly used buzz words) and that anyone with olive skin and brown hair would naturally be reduced to become her domestic work force, but that is just human conjecture, i.e. bullshit.
My mother wrote a rule book that my father enforced that dictated everything we did in our day from sun up to sundown. We were punished when we didn't sit up straight, eat our food incorrectly, spoke out of turn, when we did anything wrong or incomplete. She took away our freedom from activities that we loved, kept our home the temperature of the morgue, slapped us in the face and imposed her righteousness upon us keeping our spirits underwater our whole young lives.
The lily white colour of her skin and the olive skin of my Italian father didn't make them abusers , their pain did. The patterns of energy within those cultures, hence familial patterns, re-lived, re-visited, re- enforced and empowered through the undying stories of human experience of dominance and victimhood not allowed to die through transformation just kept adding fuel to the fire.
Not just from my mother' s dominant "side" but my father's that knelt in victimhood at the other end of that sword. All "sides" must take personal responsibility or they will forever be fighting on the battle field of pain and illusion.
Had I not taken responsibility to transform myself out of the energy field of abuses I endured as a child , those patterns would be repeated no matter how much I changed my outer world, the vibration would remain the same and so would the pattern.
Therefore when you don't learn to love yourself and heal, you believe you are teaching your children to be more loving through resistance in the outer world, but you are in fact teaching them to fight and remain divided , to remain in fear, blaming from one end of the sword or the other.
Because I choose to make love my reason for being, I continue to take responsibility to transform my pain from childhood where it all began this life, or I would be making Donald Trump, politicians, big business, wall street, money, other cultures and religions and all people I would hold in contempt to be the reason for any unhappiness I feel in my life. I would be against the world and marching to prove my anger, discontent and righteousness missing the point of life entirely and the opportunity to be part of the solution.
