“Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions.” – Albert Einstein
You won’t read about us in the newspaper.
You won’t hear about us on the radio.
We don’t seek any glory.
We don’t wear any uniform.
We come in all shapes and sizes, colours and styles.
Most of us work anonymously.
We are quietly working behind the scenes
in every country and culture of the world.
Cities big and small, mountains and valleys,
in farms and villages, tribes and remote islands.
You could pass by one of us on the street and not even notice.
We go undercover.
We remain behind the scenes.
It is of no concern to us who takes the final credit.
But simply that the work gets done.
Occasionally we spot each other in the street.
We give a quiet nod and continue on our way.
During the day many of us pretend we have normal jobs.
But behind the false storefront at night
is where the real work takes place.
Some call us the ‘Conscious Army.’
We are slowly creating a new world
with the power of our minds and hearts.
We are dropping soft, secret love bombs when no one is looking:
We are the world’s real artists, we work for change not dollars, and we will be spreading the creative virus on February 12th 2012.
Stemming from Occupy Melbourne, the home of the ‘tent monsters meme’, this day is all about coming at things from different angles, playing with reality and having some fun in these very serious times.
All Occupiers, from all Occupations are encouraged to get creative.
Here is a little video with an awesome revolutionary remix:
