We are seeing the world reforming in front of our eyes. The question is, do we like what we see? Reformation of any kind causes disruption to the old order as new truths are brought to light. Will we continue to play it safe and believe the narrative that we are weak and powerless? Or will we make an effort to seek the truth, call out hypocrisy and lies, and take action to build our lives anew?
Following on from last week’s podcast on injustice and corruption within our society, I ask why we find it necessary and even preferable, to fall into denial. This state of being thwarts change and allows the darkness to spread like a cancer within us and the collective. Presently, everything we have covered up, buried and denied will begin to awaken, so we need to decide whether to run from, or befriend, these sleeping giants in our unconscious.

In this week’s podcast I talk about freedom without consequences. It sounds like a movie title, doesn’t it? And in a way it is a fairy tale, yet this concept underpins so many of the social movements towards change. We spend so much time trying to change the behaviour of others, either in our personal lives or the collective, because we feel offended or threatened. Yet these feelings come from a deep sense of unworthiness; an unconscious feeling that we all have in common.
