NOT SO SUBTLE "SUBTLE ACTIVISM"

When we become aware, we activate our lives. When groups become aware, it becomes a social, spiritual, creative and political activation. 

  • Activism is turning an inner vision into an outward action that causes transformation in others, in community, and in the infinite relational connections we all share.

  • When we create focused intention and/or prayer on a particular group of individuals or an issue using mindfulness practices, meditation, and concentrated effort toward a cumulative goal, this is a very powerful form of activism that can move mountains.

 

  • Guided by intuition and their connection with the soul, a subtle activist would appeal to other like-minded souls to bring about peace, compassion, protection, freedom of expression, equality and equity for ALL.

 

  • By groups joining together to develop the body/mind machine, the effort one makes toward a desired goal is met.

 

  • Some individuals have the desire to affect social change but prefer to do it in this "subtle" way rather than with the more well known forms of protest like demonstrations, marches, sit-ins, or boycotts.  Both ways are effective. One form of subtle activism or another has been practiced for thousands of years. 

  • Subtle Activism uses focused pranic energy. Pranic energy is what makes us alive. It is the key ingredient in bringing ideas into reality. Prana manifests change. The very same life force energy that replaces our cells every 72 hours can be used to change our inner landscape. Since we are a microcosm of the larger cosmic structure, when we change our selves, we alter political landscapes and social stuctures. 

  • All the world's major spiritual and/or religious traditions have used spiritual practices for a collective as well as individual benefit. For example, practitioners of one of the world's most ancient religious traditions, shamans - who were often consulted on individual healing and problem solving - were essentially the ecological and spiritual guardians of the tribe as a whole. Through shamanic guidance, a community could activate transformation for the benefit of all through group trance, prayer and ritual.

 

  • According to Vedic tradition, mantras and sounds have the ability to change "reality" or the energetic structure of one's experience of time and space.

  • For example, there is something known as "Vedic defense" which was practiced by the followers of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi in the 1960's in order to change the vibrational frequency in discordant and violent communities.  Building on one of Patanjali's sutras (avert the danger before it arises), the practitioners utilized various transcendental meditation techniques to bring social harmony in populations plagued by violence and chaos.

  • In particular, there were many such assemblies during the height of the Israel-Lebanon war in 1983. Many studies were done of the "Maharishi Effect";  one of which was accepted for publication by Yale University's Journal of Conflict Resolution. In addition to a decrease in war deaths and in the level of fighting, the number of car accidents, crime rates and other seemingly unrelated non-war occurrences dropped as well. Some other examples of subtle activism include:

  • Have you ever heard of the "Big Ben Minute"? This involved the daily practice of silence by millions of people during the chiming of Big Ben on BBC radio just before the the nightly 9pm news. This provided moral and spiritual support for the Allied war effort in World War II. 

  • Linking more than 1,000 meditation gatherings in 59 countries, the "Be the Peace" event (as part of the UN designated International Day of Peace) occurred on September 21, 2014 with the shared intention to support a shift to planetary peace.
