Being Leaders of Greater Understanding and Action
Youth organizer Paloma Flores calls us to be leaders of change, knowing the fullness of our identity as interconnected extensions of Mother Earth. As we wake up, we have the opportunity to use technology for the benefit of all, or for distraction. Aware of the larger mission and responsibility that is emerging, the youth can use national and international forums to guide the process of awakening. We are living the prophecy of the Condor and the Eagle, moving from a time of the masculine and the industrial toward a time that in which being heart centered and intuitive. As long as our words and actions are aligned with the truth, we can move mountains.
