Politics vs Spirituality. Marianne shares the significance of the consciousness shift of the 21st century. This will determine the sustainability of life on earth in the next 50 years. It’s the transition from individualism to collectivism. An integration of our interconnectedness to the rest of the world. We can no longer remain disconnected from our politics. If we don’t do politics – politics will do us. This is no longer a matter of choice. It’s a matter of evolution. If we don’t evolve our spirituality and our politics, Marianne shared her conviction, the human species will die.
“At a certain point, you will not be on the path alone, for you will be joined by mighty companions.”
Conscious Capitalism. We are here to heal and repair the world. Averting yourself away from compassion to avoid politics is what you call the new “capitalist spirituality”. Enlightened societies have both capitalism and socialism elements. Education, healthcare and economic opportunity allow hard working citizens to achieve their dreams.
“There’s no serious spiritual tradition that gives us a pass on the suffering of other sentient beings.”
Activate Your Spirit & Serve Life. Jesus didn’t say “love yourself”. He said to “Love Each Other”. The best version of ourselves is actually the worst version of ourselves… If it doesn’t include the version of our self extended into the public domain. We’re here to serve. We’re not indispensable. It’s vitally important to have an internal guidance system. Remember that you take care of the future by fully living in the present.
“Spiritual conviction is understanding that you only get to keep what you give to others.”
Power & Love. There is flow and synergy between love and power. Between divine masculinity and the divine feminine. Both elements are equally important. There is a dynamic power to the masculine and magnetic power to the feminine. As Martin Luther King put it:
“Power without love is reckless and abusive, and love without power is sentimental and anemic. Power at its best is love implementing the demands of justice, and justice at its best is power correcting everything that stands against love.”
Wage Peace. Wage peace. Wow. Marianne goes deep. Tune in and learn about the four statistical indicators that will show a higher incident of peace within a community. She believes that addressing the suffering of others should be our core political and spiritual mission. That’s just the beginning of how we wage peace.
“War is the absence of peace, peace is not the absence of war.”
