The Future Is Now: Zapatista Memories of the Future

The Future Is Now: Zapatista Memories of the Future.

In the case of the Zapatistas, it is the desire for a world outside of neoliberal exploitation, in which life is not disposable. Or, as the Zapatistas are fond of saying, a world in which many worlds can fit.

For 10 years now, the Zapatistas have been living autonomously, creating a world not consumed by capitalism’s manufactured desire. It would be naive to assume that there haven’t been serious stumbling blocks to overcome, but nevertheless they have managed what many believe to be impossible, a life outside of capitalism’s culture of disposability. They have refused to be relegated to an undignified living death as excess and created a new world based on dignity, autonomy and sovereignty. The Zapatistas haven’t moved with the speed that many thinkers and activists would like, but that is perhaps the greatest lesson to be learned from them. In the First Declaration, they note that they are the product of 500 years of anti-colonial resistance, and each communiqué since then has highlighted the continued need to resist exploitation and exclusion in all their forms. Only through continuous resistance can people realize the memory of a non-disposable future. The process of de-colonialization and resistance to dehumanizing forces is never-ending, so patience is by far the most important virtue. Or, as the Zapatista axiom states, “we walk slowly because we are going far.”

Today’s energy stirs great passion.

There is a tremendous amount of energy that can be harnessed today. Take some time to think about where you are and where you want to be (mentally, physically, emotionally, etc.) The degree of the position of the Earth today is the energy of “a fire worshipper meditates on the ultimate realities of existence.” It is alchemical energy, able to create magic. It arouses and stokes an inner fire. What does your heart truly desire? The Universe hears and responds to this today. If the thing that is blocking you is you, there is an abundance of energy to push you out of that. The energy enables us to self-direct more effectively.

Some people will respond negatively to the passion that is incited today. Anger, inflexibility, manipulation, aggression, and controlling behavior are manifestations of this. Issues of dependency, appreciation, and recognition also arise. These are signs that something needs to change or shift.

An interesting feature of today’s energy is the ability to morph space-time. This means the past and the future are fluid and ripe for re-imprinting. Changing your view about a perceived loss or failure from the past will change your future. Can you take hold of the reins of your mind?

The principle of resonance (like attracting like) is also strong today. We are pulled toward those people, places, things, and ideas that are more akin to our soul’s code and the destiny of our lives. Psychic-type communications are also heightened.

The theme this month is revolutionary liberation. Today’s energy goes a long way toward this. Though we are aware that we are in the midst of a powerful energetic window of time that could be used for nefarious purposes, we also see the opportunity to harness passion for positive expression. The Spirit of Liberty reigns strong today, no matter where on Gaia Sophia you are.

In celebration of my favorite thing – freedom – I’ve posted the story of my initiation with the Mahavidyas on the About page here atwww.oraclereport.com. Scroll down to “Initiation with the Kalis.” Many people have asked me to tell the story of my first encounter with the Wisdom Goddesses. I am happy to tell it today.
