I talked in my prior post, What Does the Disconnect From Strawberry Fields Lead To?, about the disconnect that can so readily set in us.
This disconnect can lead us to feel out of touch with ourselves, others and the environment, and leave us feeling lonely and unable to make connections with others, even if we desire it so very much.
This is a problem endemic to society and has led to rampant substance abuse as a way to cope with the pain of this disconnect and the subsequent loneliness it leads to.
This is not only a problem for the individual, but it is a problem for society at large, in that this disconnect lies at the root of the world’s problems. You see, when you look below the surface of the problems we face – climate change, income inequality, wars, injustice and bigotry aimed towards various groups of people, special interest money influencing politics, health care, food quality and purity, and many others – at the heart of it is this same disconnect.
The people who have the most power in this country and world are human begins just like you and me, with the same flaws and foibles. When the disconnect shows up in these people, a part of their humanity dies. And when their humanity dies, they make decisions based on fear, greed and narcissism, in which what matters most to them is that their agenda is met.
And it all stems from the disconnect. If they felt more connected to themselves, to others, and to the environment, their actions would be different – they would make decisions that favored the public good over their interests. Their decisions would be more enlightened and the world would be a better place.
There is a vicious cycle to this dilemma. Our fast-paced world pushes us to be disconnected from ourselves, leading to decisions that are made that accelerate this disconnect, which then further reinforces the disconnect in people.
This is the trap we need to find our way out of. When we start to consciously move past this way of living, thinking, doing and being, that’s when we can become more connected to ourselves and feel more whole. And when this approach becomes more prevalent in our society, it is possible for the general thrust of society to change to a more connected place, one in which even the leaders start to realize that what matters most is the public good.
More and more people are starting to awaken to the reality of living a more connected life, and as they do, it is creating a revolution towards a more holistic, sustainable and enlightened society and world. The movement is growing, and it is welcoming you to join it.
This is the general thrust of my documentary film, On the Path to Strawberry Fields, that there is a growing movement and it is going to cause a revolution, a sea change in the way we conduct ourselves and the way the world operates.
