I was reading a very good book recently on the dangers of digital technology and its impact on the plasticity of the brain. I’m not finished but I am sure that there will be a call to action of some sort as part of the conclusion of the work. I realized that this call to external action is a mantra of our current society.
I remembered that I am inundated by calls to external action. Petitions against big pharma, big agriculture, unjust actions by countries, global warming and various sides of immigration issues call me to participate by supporting or opposing something.
When was the last time you had a call to action to go inside? How often has someone challenged you to get quiet and decide what it is you believe? Clarity and desire are all about going inside. We have to look at what we believe, expect and love before we can act.
As I have said before clarity is a process that requires the inner work before the outer action. We change all the time. If we are aware of the inner self when the change happens we are more likely to be able to deal with it.
If no one has challenged you to go inside let me challenge you. When you decide you want something; stop. Ask yourself why you want it. Tell yourself the details of your desire. Awaken yourself to the wisdom that lives inside.
