A Great Disturbance in the Force

Sisters and brothers,

I write this to you with trembling fingers and an anxious heart. There is a grave disturbance in “The Force,” and if you too are an empath, you are likely feeling it.  I pen this today to assure you that you are not alone!

There is much in the world that is contributing to this disturbance:

These are just a few examples of what may be causing (or continuing to cause) a Disturbance in the Force, and they all point to one single thing:

Complete and total systemic collapse.

As Jesus said, “a kingdom divided against itself cannot stand (Mark 3:24, Matthew 12:25).”  Not only are we a kingdom divided. We are a world divided. The disturbances we are experiencing today will continue to heighten as we approach the end of the system of fear, power, oppression, and control that has ruled our world.  A system that by its own design is rooted in division and has no future but collapse.

We are witnessing and living through the collapse.

The question for many of us is, “how do we survive the collapse?”  Sadly, many have not, and many more will not. Human life is sadly one of the costs of collapse. With the reality of human casualties in mind, the first order of business is to:

tend to our dying and grieve their loss.

Tending to our dying and grieving their loss is and has become a necessary act of self-care. Tending to our grief will become increasingly critical as the world continues to divide in its journey toward collapse:

  • grieving relationships we might lose
  • grieving the loss of what we have known as our day-to-day lives
  • grieving the destruction of our planet
  • grieving the hardness of heart of some human beings
  • grieving the loss of the illusion of security, safety, and control
  • grieving the on-going unveiling of evil and corruption in our world
  • grieving the loss of the illusion of the “system having our back”

As the world as we have known it collapses, there has been and will continue to be much to grieve.

What support do you have for processing grief?

Speaking of grief, what support do you have for processing the shattering of illusions? A system based in fear, power, oppression, and control, gets that power through deception.  Straight up, bold-faced lies about how the system “protects, provides for, and cares about its citizens.”  A system built on fear, power, oppression, and control only cares about one thing – ITSELF.  As the system continues in its collapse, more and more of these falsehoods will be revealed along with the loathsome and hideous reality of what has been hiding behind the veil.

What support do you have for processing deception and betrayal?

As the veils hiding the reality of the system are torn away, so too will be the veils of those who have benefitted from the system. There is an old saying about “the Father of Lies” ruling the world.  Success in a world ruled by lies is best secured by those living the lie – either lying to themselves, or lying to the world about who they are and what they are offering and promising (ie: Joel Olsteen). Those lacking integrity will be made known  – some of whom you may have depended on as perceived sources of support.

What support do you have for grieving these lies?

While we cannot save a world in its collapse, we can take measures to support ourselves in navigating and hopefully surviving that collapse. 

  • It begins with paying attention to what is happening around us and being willing to see (and feel) the reality of things.
  • It is then a matter of self-care – caring for our fear, our grief, our anxiety, our worry, our sorrow, our disappointment, our shock and trauma. 
  • It is about knowing when we have exhausted our own efforts of self-care and when we need to reach out to another for support. 

Who are the people on your support team?

I want to close this musing with the reminder that on the other side of every loss, death, disappointment, betrayal, and systemic collapse, is the promise of new life. New life is found after we have taken the time to grieve our losses and heal our wounds, but the seeds of that new life have already been planted.  It is my hope and my vision that the new world on the other side of this collapse is kinder, gentler, more peaceful, collaborative and harmonious than the world we know today.  I, for one, am looking forward to that new world that I have already begun to build for myself.  Which brings me to my final question:

What tools do you have for building your own new world?
