Soon after I hit Activist burnout. I was done! I decided I was going to sell all my shit and go travelling… What ensued was the most incredible voyage that led me through a very deep and profound spiritual journey, involving countless amounts of inner work, soul-searching and healing. I am not going to say I came out of this a fully empowered man, but I was more in my power than I ever knew was possible.
Returning to the UK after a few years in the sun, activism came back into my life, but this time I was armed with more stillness, more compassion and understanding. By this time however, I was seeing a huge increase in censorship of awakening information, an increase in division and an increase in distractions; meaning we as activists need to find new ways to effectively reach the masses with our awakening messages and hone in our abilities to be effective at what we do.
It is time to for us to step up. This is why platforms like Activists Toolbox must exist. To arm the activists of the world and awaken the dormant activist within those who have yet to realise their spark for getting involved in creating positive change. If we wish to help bring forth a new paradigm, we as activists also need to embrace love and spirituality in all that we do.
