It’s time to look at what it means to (r)evolve. A full revolution will take you 360°. That means going full-circle. When you have hit your beginning – and you will know when that is – you are ready to decide how you would like to proceed. Until you reach your beginning, you cannot start. It makes perfect sense. Perfect sense is where you want to be. In order to find perfect sense, you have to try different things. You might like a bit of this, a bit of that. It takes time to build for yourself a perfect picture.
Your revolution can happen any time you want it to. You must just be decisive. You cannot be wishy-washy when it comes to choosing revolution. What will it take for you to reach your beginning? It will take you facing up to yourself. That means looking equally long at your good and your bad. In your 360° revolution you will find yourself in every frame, different. You will understand from this finding that you are – in this particular embodiment – simply another challenge sent to face circumstance. We are all gladiators in this life. The key to a successful revolution is to accept yourself in every frame. It is not easy to accept every part of yourself, but it must be done. Be tolerant of whatever you present to yourself in terms of life trials, too, i.e. the choices you make. You make your choices consciously. Know one thing – they alone are what cause the calm or drama in your life. If you are tired of drama, remove yourself from the dramatic situation you are a part of and refrain from making the kind of choices that take you back there. It is as easy as that.
Once our (r)evolution is complete, we find ourselves in a new, clean headspace. In this headspace you will find your best, the part of you that has been watching, and learning, all along. Whilst you have been busy living – however you have chosen to do that – the work has been going on. That is the wonder of (r)evolution. It is not for you to be alarmed by the open ground ahead. The best news about open ground is that there is space to create what is needed. When you get given your reigns and the authority to manage without interference both your dark and light sides then you will find that you have every single tool at your disposal with which to craft perfection. If you are not interested in a perfect world then you are on the wrong planet.

Is the greatest commodity on this planet our headspace? How many different agencies are vying for our attention, clamouring for our ears, our eyes? Is their need to dominate our realities a real threat? To be rude, all you do is shut someone out. That is one of the greatest powers we hold as humans – the power to sever communications with another. There is nothing quite as brutal as not knowing why a silence has fallen. There is, too, huge defiance in staying silent. That kind of defiance is only justified, though, if the silence held holds a beautiful truth that does not need to explain itself to the outside world. For all beautiful truths resonate the same. They do not need to be spoken aloud to be realised. There is a low hum of truthful activity – whether that be saving the environment or healing the sick – alive on our planet. It is not possible to lose sight of that. In the battle between ignorance and environment I think the environment is starting to take the lead. I think there are more green-minded people right now than there are those who don’t give a shit. Unfortunately for the rest of us there are a lot of people who still don’t give a shit – I am bound here to rant about the UK yobs who can’t even spell ‘green’ and the Chinese who rape virtually everything natural that they come across. The list of offenders is endless. There are also a lot of people who are powerless to make big changes – like huge swathes of Chinese people who are bullied by a regimented state system. They protest and hope someone hears them. They have to shout loudly to be heard above the racket of communism in the background. How best to make a nation take themselves more seriously as human beings? That is no easy task, especially since so many Chinese seem now to be getting lost in the capitalist plot. Their ears are stuffed too full of designer labels for them to make sense of the ancient wisdom that sings somewhere within the soul of each Chinese person. Neglecting their heritage, they are playing a dangerous game with their evolution. We’ve all seen the results of ‘too much West too fast’. Look at what the missionaries did to a beautifully rich tribal culture. Look at what happens with the extremity of Sharia law. Look at the power of Hollywood, of Bollywood. I have to wonder what we learned from our empire-minded forebears if it was not cruelty, avarice, greed – and most importantly, loyalty to only the self?
What we choose to subscribe to shapes our person and defines our ‘work’ on this planet. For we all have a ‘work’ to do. When you find out what yours is, you will know. It might take you half your life to find that out. The better equipped you are to search for your work, the better. So take back your headspace. You need it. Use it to some pro-active end. Lose the thinking that you are what you have been taught. You are what you have learned. There is the difference.
