An open space for global conversation
We continue here with Monday's Voices in the Wilderness theme. To what degree does your voice—do OUR voices—make a difference? The Occupy movement has spoken, shaken and rerouted the global discourse to center on a growing worldwide economic disparity. The collective cry of "This is not OK!" has registered on all fronts, of this there is little dispute.

What about the voices of change itself? Choosing to protest is accessible to many because you can stand in a crowd and stir your voice into the mix with minimum risk of being singled out as an instigator, or perhaps worse, a fool.
What about the people up front, facing the crowd—the ones facing the general assembly, sparking the people's mic with their inspiration or proposals?
A few truly relish this role—and many imagine trying it on. But a majority feel as though they'd rather enjoy a root canal than expose themselves to...well, let your imagination fill in the blank.
Even if you're an enthusiastic, front-of-the-crowd person, to what degree are you OK with passionate disagreement by others? How would you be? Would you get defensive, combative, belligerent—or slink away vowing to never do that again? Where do you draw the line with respect to how visible and audible you're willing to be? What might it be like to to stay present and open regardless of the response?
How might you expand your relationship with your voice—your presence? How might you increase trust and value with your voice, your ideas, your viewpoints, your intuition; trust that it's safe to speak up and speak out.
What we don't know we don't know holds us back–imprisons us behind invisible mental/emotional walls. Liberate awareness to Occupy Your Voice!
