A Valentine's Day Message to Occupy

You are the heart and the soul of what we are all trying to become... You are the future of human community.

"Hello Occupy people of the world. You are the future of humanity. You are the heart and the soul of what we are all trying to become. Bless you. Valentine's Day is today, and this is my heart message to you. It's a great big thank you all about love, because love, Dear Ones, - you can't send anyone to do your loving for you. It isn't about representative democracy, it's about your kind of democracy, namely, everybody is equal, everybody votes with their life, and that's what you've been doing with all these blessed little villages you've put together. You are the future of human community.  Those of us who have been among you have nothing to say but thank you, we love you, and that's why you're getting a valentine today. Yes!"

A Love Letter to Occupy

You are announcing a planetary social transformation more profound than the changes from hunting and gathering to agriculture and  from  agriculture to industry.

You are announcing a planetary social transformation more profound than the changes from hunting and gathering to agriculture and  from  agriculture to industry.  Now the change is from human created machinery, factory and money to human collaboration, community and soul fulfillment.  Industrial jobs are declining while personal and societal roles are emerging.  The value and availability of money is declining while the creativity of individual meaning is rising.  The human soul is replacing the human machine as the economic and political archetype and icon of this age of global transformation.

Seeking soul is totally different from seeking money.  Money is enslaving and addicting; soul is liberating and purifying.  Money is momentary and transitory; soul is enduring and inspiring.

The food of money is property; the food of soul is love.  The politics of soul is totally different from the politics of money.  It is impossible to send anyone anywhere to do your loving for you.  That makes representative democracy obsolete and direct participative democracy emergent. 

The best most workable contexts and settings for direct democracy are local communities and neighborhoods.  They are small enough for the participants to know and care for each other and large enough to serve our planet by respecting and caring for the whole family of life.

There is a field of energy, idea, feeling, value and intention underlying and creating light, electricity and the formation of matter and life.  That field is Love which is the source, the substance and the future of all being in the universe.  Learning about the presence and power of that field of Love is the defining dynamic of human change and the beginning of conscious human evolution.  All of the transformative political and economic action for change is the working forth into human culture of the cosmic dynamic of Love.  Love is not just what we do; it is what we are, made so by the birth of our universe as a Love story.

Respectfully and thankfully yours,

August T. Jaccaci
