Anything is Possible – Yes We Can!
I am here in Seattle, USA and what a time to be here! I can hardly believe what is happening, even though I have imagined it, dreamt it, visioned it, been told by my inner knowing for my whole life that it would happen, still I feel I have woken up in the middle of my dream, only to find it is real after all. All I – and we – have ever imagined, visioned, felt to be true, hoped will be – is and will be, and in one night Obama with his win and his words has truly created a global energetic shift in consciousness, with everyone thinking the same thing: anything is possible!!!
All of us who have been awake and conscious of all that is going on around the world, knowing the unique potential and opportunity we have at this time to create a new world, have felt despair at times. Many have asked: will things ever shift in a positive direction on a mass, mainstream level? We have been told over and over again: not in our lifetime. I refused to believe this, and not just because of an inner knowing, but because the Earth and our old dysfunctional economic, environmental, social, political and health structures literally could not be sustained for much longer. We have been watching things collapse and crumble right before our eyes, and so it has not been a matter of whether things will shift, things are shifting, the question became, in which way will they shift? Which path will we as a people choose? The path of Destruction or Transformation? I believed the latter, I felt the latter, but I also knew it all depended on the outcome of last night’s election. After all, we as a humanity always have free will and choice, and the final decision would be made by the energy of the collective majority. What do the collective majority want? Are enough of us awake and conscious and ready for change? We dared to hope....but we couldn’t be sure....until now. Obama’s win last night answered our questions. If you have nearly given up, if you have been in any doubt, if you have let yourself slip into apathy – it is understandable. But it is time to get up! We have been given a second wind and new energy, and it’s time to get to work!
There is a wave of hope moving through the US today, and the world. Obama has instilled hope in all those who believed there was no hope left. He has given fresh energy to all those who have worked tirelessly for change for many years and were getting weary. He has shifted the global collective consciousness from fear, doubt and despair, to hope, faith and the feeling we have just entered the birth of a new world as we unite in the words: Anything Is Possible.
Yes it will take work. No it won't happen overnight. But it will happen. The people have spoken! They want change, they are ready for change, and they stood in the rain for three hours yesterday to say enough is enough! Yesterday as I watched them through the television screen, lining up in city after city, so determined to play their part in making a difference, knowing that this time it was different, knowing that the President they chose now will determine which way we go as a world over the next four years, I said thank you, and my heart was full of gratitude. Thank you to all those people, because the future of the world was quite literally in the hands of the US people yesterday. Climate change, the war in Iraq, global diplomacy and world peace, the economy, all of these issues that affect all humanity, regardless of the political party, race or country you belong to, can now be addressed in a positive way guided by an intelligent, visionary leader.
The media was on top of things this time. CNN had a voting hotline set up to call immediately if you encountered problems while trying to cast your vote. Nothing was going to stop the course of justice and the democratic process this time. Nothing will stop the will of the people this time. I wrote in my book A New Chapter that the only reason those in power have taken the world in a direction that isn’t serving us, is because on some level we let them. I wrote that it is time now to take our power back, and play our part in taking this world in a new direction, one based on unity and what is good for all, not good for some. Today we the people have taken back our power. We have said yes to playing our part in creating this new world, writing our page in our new chapter, making sure it is a fabulous new chapter, knowing your page counts! It is a good day.
Thank you Obama, you have come just in time.
“So today, I ask you to write our nation’s next great chapter. I ask you to believe – not just in my ability to bring about change, but in yours. ...You can choose hope over fear, unity over division, the promise of change over the status quo. If you give me your vote, we won’t just win this election – together, we will change this country and change the world.”
- Barack Obama, USA Today, November 4 2008
