Inspiration Express – Finding Inspiration after Tragedy
WE ARE BETTER THAN THIS!
As the chilling accounts flooded the airways on February 14th of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Florida, I knew that this month’s Inspiration Express Blog was going to be a much different conversation. My thoughts today are not light and fluffy wisps of inspiration, but rather a calling to inspire all of us to seek imperative change for all our sakes.
On the Sunday before this shooting, I awoke in the throes of sobbing that went on all day. I could not figure out what was going on. My tears could have filled a bathtub. I couldn’t identify anything happening in my life to produce such a reaction. I am a very sensitive person and have experienced a reaction ahead of many major earth events and even 9-11. As the pictures and conversations continue to play out from this tragedy and follow the usual path of resistance to change, my tears continue to flow. For I know, deep in my heart, that WE ARE BETTER THAN THIS! Regardless of what side of the social issues we are on, we can all agree that the devastation that is happening almost every day in the world cannot be sustained much longer. Every person has a stake in the game and a responsibility for what is happening.
So how do we find inspiration after such horrible tragedies or in the fear that permeates the world? I want to offer as a starting point that we sit down together and agree, first and foremost, that WE ARE BETTER THAN THIS!
Humans have overcome many great challenges along the way. I think a lot of people thought that we had accomplished so much after the world wars through the 1940s and never thought we would have to meet such great threats to our existence again. We overcame the Cold War and proved that we had the capacity to overcome darkness in our world. There were thousands and thousands of examples of human heroics to draw inspiration from. However, darkness changed its tactics as we grew complacent. Darkness uses fear to keep its hold on the world and only Divine Inspiration, or Love, can overcome it.
I believe that we are at a serious tipping point at this time and it is going to take all of us to overcome darkness today. But I am hopeful, because I see this time on earth as darkness’s last hurrah. I see in the hearts of the millennials a new sense of Divine Inspiration coming through. These children, born after the Columbine High School mass shooting have lived with the threat of school violence since day 1. But instead of becoming cynical, they are becoming a positive force for change.
Today, the younger people are in a much higher consciousness than the older generations who are running the world. Many of these bright young people seem to be old souls that see past the fear-based consciousness on all of the social issues of today. They already know that WE ARE BETTER THAN THIS and they have already told us that they are not going to put up with our B.S.
It’s time for a greater number of the older generations to take a giant step back and look at the view from over the trees. We can experience a new Divine Inspiration about who we are as human beings and who we can become, by realizing in all of our dark situations that WE ARE BETTER THAN THIS. Look at the injustices in the world from the view of I AM BETTER THAN THIS!
It would be nice to be able to draw on a beautiful, fluffy example of Divine Inspiration for you to gather hope from today, but sadly I can’t. Not after a week of hearing the details of young people watching the horrific massacre that played out in front of them.
Sometimes Divine Inspiration has to come from Divine Activism inside that comes from Divine Outrage that calls us to be the better angels we know we can be. Sometimes we have to create the inspiration out of a sense of grief and injustice that spurs us to act.
Put yourself in the shoes of those children or their families for just one moment and tell me you are fine with the way things are going! Why is the fear of taking your guns away or your supposed 2nd Amendment rights more powerful than the fear of your children or your loved ones or neighbors being next? Why is waiting a few days longer to acquire a gun not a worthy sacrifice of a citizen, if it stops another school shooting or killing of an officer.
Look at the crimes against humanity and step back for one moment and set your own interests aside and come from a sense of personal responsibility for what goes on in the world, then ask yourself if you are better than the results you see before you.
Today, my tears are changing from tears of despair and anger to tears of hope. I know that I am better than this. I know that we are better than this. I know that we will overcome darkness in the world and I am divinely inspired to act!
Won’t you join me in proclaiming that WE ARE BETTER THAN THIS and act on this inspiration to create a peaceful, just world?
