For so many years that term has been bandied about. A favorite buzz word of the religious right, a boogeyman to engender fear and hatred and to keep the public from thinking rationally. For a long time it had the desired effect, and otherwise good, thoughtful people shut down in the face of such a threatening specter.
The Homosexual Agenda has been characterized as a movement to undermine “traditional” values, to force a questioning of what society holds dear, to erode the foundations of American superiority and dominance.
Turns out, the Homosexual Agenda is real.
However, the Homosexual Agenda is not the Agenda of the Homosexuals. It is the Agenda of the Universe. It is an expression of a greater Life force, moving to break apart our ossified and irrelevant ideas of what it means to be human.
And it’s not only visible in the LGBTQ movement.
It’s also apparent in Occupy Wall Street, in the Women’s movement, in the Arab Spring and EarthFirst!, in every place where people have come together to demand change. It’s connected to the end of the Mayan Calendar Cycle, to the end of the Age of Pisces and the beginning of the Age of Aquarius. The Pixies called it a Wave of Mutilation and Kurt Cobain took the bullet for my generation. In Pulp Fiction, Jules chose to ride the wave and Vincent was destroyed by it.
Each individual is given a choice, to hang on to what is decrepit and outmoded, or to join the forces breaking Cain’s hegemony.
I hope that more people will choose to give up hatred, will choose to let go of thought patterns and habits that are harmful. I fear that many will be tricked into seeing Change as the Adversary, and will continue to fight, tooth and nail, to hold up that which is crumbling. There are those who will continue to look for an Enemy, whether it’s the Gays, the Immigrants, or whoever the Scapegoat of the day is. I am truly sorry for those folks, as they continue to choose separation and suffering instead of opening their hearts and minds.
But in the end, I don’t think it will matter. We are moving toward something greater, and we are moving faster and faster.
Those in power have always tried to resist. They have squashed dissent, imprisoned and murdered leaders. They have acted from fear and the delusion that Life can be controlled. And their actions have always backfired.
2000 years ago they crucified a man preaching liberation, and His legacy flourished. They then co-opted His legacy (rather successfully), and convinced His followers that His true spirit is dangerous and hateful. But that is crumbling, too. More and more of His followers are seeing the Light and aligning themselves with their Master’s vision.
Today we don’t need a single leader. We don’t need a Savior to walk amongst us. We are the ones we have been waiting for, and our waiting is over.
Of course, in real-time, human terms, the suffering continues, and will probably continue for some time. I wish there was some way around this. All I know how to do is to respond to what is in front of me, and give what comfort and succor I can in the moment.
I can’t tell you what to do. That is between you and Life. I suggest that if a course of action requires you to act from hatred or fear, it’s probably off base. If you can come from a place of open-heartedness at any moment, you are undoubtedly better off in the long term.
I am a white, straight American man. I am a life-long beneficiary of Cain’s Hegemony. I am ecstatic to see it fall.
Please go forward bravely, Life is inviting you in.
