Isn’t the internet incredible? In yesterday’s post I talked about the way messages get morphed on the web and quoted the inspiring message written by Brian Piergrossi that is working its way around the world, and the day before I asked about the attribution of a painting. 24 hours later someone in Holland has told me where the painting is and who is the painter, and Brian has been in touch from the US to clarify his message. Since sometimes readers don’t read the comments section I’m going to quote Brian’s comment on my post here. The point he makes is very interesting:
Philip – Thanks for sharing this message and adding some context and history to the travels thus far of this poem which has touched the hearts of many around the world via the internet.
I would like to clarify one point about this piece which many have come to misunderstand.
I am definitely not advocating anonymity in this poem… quite the opposite.. I am suggesting this is the time for the millions of us around the world to come out of the cowardly proverbial closet… and stop feeling like we are alone.. to announce our names… who we are.. what we love.. where we live… and begin to join hands together… and begin to co-create together, in this dimension the world of our dreams and imaginings…
No one will do it if we do not. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.
This does not, and will not happen by remaining isolated and anonymous any longer…
This is the time to come forward and begin to co-create together… when we do this, and we step forward… we are realizing… this emerging consciousness we are a part of, is much more powerful, vast and populous then we ever imagined…
The internet is the tool for taking it to the next level.
We are truly the ones we’ve been waiting for.
Blessings and Inspiration to all
