How Effective Are the Protests Against Monsanto?

When asked if she’d participate in an anti-war rally, Mother Teresa said she would not. But, she said, she would participate in a peace rally.

One of our readers asked us if the protests against Monsanto are helping or hurting the efforts to remove genetically modified organisms from our food supply. Unless you’ve been meditating on a mountaintop the past few years, you know about this bitter controversy.

Here’s is the reader’s email:

Hi John,

I so enjoy reading your blog. Spirit’s messages always ring true with me.

I remember once reading that both John Lennon and Mother Teresa would never protest anything, because you are adding your energy to whatever you are against, thus supporting it in a way.

I have noticed many friends are against Monsanto, and thousands of people have recently protested around the globe. It seems that they may be raising awareness, and may even cause the government to make changes supporting them. (I doubt the government would make changes against Monsanto if no one said or did anything.)

I feel that I want to ignore it all and focus on what I want (a world without Monsanto), but in this case I am unsure.
Are these protests actually helping their cause or hindering it by giving more energy to what they do not want?

Warm Regards,
(Name withheld)

Spirit

Anything you protest against—be it big, such as war or Monsanto—or small, is pure and simple resistance.

Resistance, as you have heard us and others say many times, brings you only more of what you are resisting—more of what you do not want.

Are the worldwide protests against Monsanto raising awareness? Yes—among individuals and governments. That is a good thing. At least some good comes out of even the worst, most painful circumstances.

But let’s take a moment to look at this from a slightly different perspective—your perspective.

If you’re reading this you likely agree with us that resistance is largely counterprodtuctive. Not that we are asking you to agree with us all the time.

But if you, like John, find protests (against anything) futile and frustrating, then we want you to know there is a lot you can do to create a better world—in this case, a world without Monsanto—without having to protest, resist, and otherwise add to the negative energy already swirling around the issue.

Simply focus on what you can do in your own world, in the environment immediately around you.

You could, for example, help people increase their awareness of GMO issues—you could teach classes in your community, share your views with those open to them, create a blog to publicly share your thoughts.

Those are just a few of the many things you could do.

Because you will be approaching the issue from a positive stance, you will effectively be countering the negativity that protests virtually always generate.

You, one person standing alone, in a peaceful, positive place, are far more powerful and effective than the anger and bitterness generated by protests. You can—and will—make a positive difference.

And you will feel the better for it. If you make Monsanto wrong and their opponents right, you’re contributing to the problem, not the solution.

Monsanto may be the problem. But you are the solution.

Here an interesting video about how our world has dramatically shifted from an agrarian society to what it is today. (If you’re a vegetarian or animal rights advocate, parts of this video may be upsetting to you.)

In the early 1980s John took a spiritual development course, and was introduced to his first spirit guide, Lydia. After Lydia arrived, three other guides also came to him: Archangel Michael, Tamarra, and Chief Joseph. Today these are John’s four main guides.

Besides his four main ones, John has various other guides. The entire group is really a multidimensional collective consciousness. John refers to the entire group simply as “Spirit.”
