Bow and arrow
If you want to shoot an arrow it is necessary to retract the bow and that backward tension enables the arrow to propel forward. The greater the backward pull the greater the potential for the arrow to propel forward. It is the backward pulling of the bow that enables the forward movement of the arrow. With a small backwards pull the arrow will not have enough power to be able to go very far forward. The bow and arrow works in this way due to a law of nature.
At the end of the presidency of George W. Bush the country was in a state of collapse and a lot of people were experiencing suffering from what was taking place. This opened up a door and a window of opportunity for people to hear the message of change that Barack Obama was presenting and it enabled enough people to vote for a man of color who was offering a different vision for our future.
As we know the resistance to the change that President Obama attempted to bring was enormous. But in spite of the never ending attempts to stop change President Obama was able to institute many important changes that assisted this country and the world in a forward movement. A result of the forward movement that was achieved during the Obama presidency was that a coalition of people and organizations in this country and in other countries congealed in a desperate attempt to stop change from taking place.
The people who are trying to stop change either consciously or unconsciously know that their time is up. They can see the writing on the wall and it has caused them to come out of the shadows in a last ditch attempt to stop change. These people are the predators, the exploiters and the oppressors of the world. They can sense humanity is changing and they want to make it stop and are therefore attempting to take us backward.
Humanity is in the process of changing from the belief that it is perfectly acceptable for me to prosper at the expense of everyone else which is a way of thinking that sees everyone as separate. The changes that are taking place are causing us to begin to realize and appreciate that we are an interconnected and interwoven whole and that our survival and our capacity to thrive is dependent on our understanding that this is the true nature of our being and therefore we are going to need to create structures that support this true understanding of ourselves.
Change is inevitable. All of life is in constant flux and all living things change and evolve. This is one of the basic laws of life. No matter how much effort is put into trying to keep us from evolving the effort to stop evolution is doomed to fail. The past is in a state of decay. It is change and evolution that will give us new life. So the people who are working so hard to prevent change from taking place and who want us to remain in the past are engaging in the process of self destruction. By attempting to stop change they are ensuring their own demise.
Due to a law of nature the forces that are trying to prevent change and to keep us in the past are supplying a powerful backward force that can be felt in the pressure and tension that is present today. That powerful attempt to pull us backward has been building up a massive amount of energy that is preparing to cause a vast forward movement. The bow and arrow gives us a way of understanding this. The desperate and powerful attempt to pull us backward is ensuring that a great leap forward is afoot. The amount of tension that is present would imply that change is likely very close at hand.
The forces that brought us Barack Obama are greater than the forces that want to destroy what he began. The forces that brought us Barack Obama are the evolutionary forces. It is clear that we are in a time of great change. It is clear that our behavior from the past that is struggling to continue in the present is unsustainable. Those forces would bring us all to self destruction.
Because we are part of an evolving universe that seeks survival we are in the process of evolving. That means that we are moving forward which means that we will be finding solutions that will put an end to the predatory, exploitative and oppressive way of being that has been the structure of the past. We each have an opportunity to decide which side of this divide we want to reside but the future is inevitable. We have the opportunity to align with the evolutionary forces and to assist in bringing the changes we want to see come about.
