This video share of Russell Brand with Jeremy Paxman of BBC’s Newsnight goes along with the theme of the RuPaul and Marianne Williamson video I posted a few days ago…more evidence of change taking form in the world-wide, collective reality.
Russell was invited, as guest editor of the New Statesman’s just-published revolution-themed issue, to explain to Jeremy why anyone should listen to a man who has never voted in his life.
Again, I’m the farthest thing from being political, as I work change in other ways, which is why what Russell shares here speaks a language I understand.
Not everyone will agree with what he has to say, and that is as valid as his free will and right to say it. Sometimes I feel that when something is uncomfortable and challenges us to think differently, our egos devise a mechanism to trap onto the one thing about the person or what they have to say that validates our fear, and makes us shut down to hear the crux and core message that is being conveyed.
I love what my friend Kelly Smith had to share this morning:
“Many people pass judgment on popular and unpopular opinion. Placing energy into the ‘fight’ is a distraction of sublime consciousness. Sublime is the rising of being. One can notice the fly, the mosquito, the insolent remark, and simply wave a hand in Peace.”
