‘Time for a Spiritual Revolution’ is an amazing and inspirational speech by Russell Brand.
I think this is an interesting time. I think that people are interested once more in formulating a different society. I think people are kind of board of being exploited, they’re bored of the cultural narrative that supports elitism and exploits the people.
The planet is being destroyed, we are creating an underclass, we are exploiting poor people all over the world and their genuine legitimate problems are not being addressed.
I suppose what’s happened, this is what I believe in mate, is that certain cultural narratives are promoted that are beneficial only to elites. There cultural narratives are not true.
I think of contemporary by-partisan and politics as a meaningless spectacle designed to distract you from where power truthfully dwells.
Politics just needs to be the administration of certain spiritual principles. For me the spiritual principles that’s important that we are all one, we are all together and every individual’s rights need to be respected.
I think that we need to see politics as the implementation of spiritual principles of oneness, togetherness, tolerance for one another and making sure that people are taken care of. This is what I think, I think we need a spiritual revolution more than a political one.
I believe profoundly in the power of humanity, I believe that we’re connected, I think there’s an imminent inevitability to us to a successful revolution. I think this is a changing consciousness that we are experiencing, I feel that we will survive. I feel there’ll be radical changes, I think we need to be looking at the world as one inclusive entity. We need to look at how many people are on the planet, we need to look at the resources that are available and what the most sensible thing to do with that. There’s going to be a massive change in the power structure that currently exists.
You cannot define yourself in reference to other external coordinates. You must define internally in your relationship to a higher entity. Figure yourself as a manifestation of some higher thing, some higher frequency. This is the visible realization and you know that because you can’t see atoms can you? You certainly can’t see forces that hold atoms together. There in the micro quantum world Richard, lie the answers to everything. We can’t understand it with our lytical rational minds but we feel it intuitively. Get yourself in alignment with that stuff and you beam like the sun.
I suppose the Ultimate Truth is Oneness, that this is a temporary illusion that we temporarily occupy these flesh bodies, we believe so much in our identity, we believe in our individualism. I’m a person who believes in the nature of my own individualism and my own identity. On a deeper level I recognize that all these things are transient and what is important is that we will find all things that we all share, love, unity, togetherness. As long as we have cultural narratives that share these ideas to suppress these ideas in favor of negative human traits, greed, selfishness, lust. As long as these ideas are promoted we will exist in opposition of one another and we’ll be exploitable by corporations that pray upon these negative facets of humanity.
There’s going to be a revolution, it’s totally going to happen.
