A note from Zo
“Blessed Unrest” is a prayer, and a call, to a particular way of being: Awake to the world as it is, devoted to the world as it could be, and engaged in bridging the gap.
Credit for the phrase “blessed unrest” goes to the dancer Martha Graham, for whom it describes a state of sacred discontent at the heart of every creative act. She said: “There is a vitality, a life force, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique…. There is only a queer divine dissatisfaction; a blessed unrest that keeps us marching…”
I learned the phrase through The Pachamama Alliance, whose transformational education program, Awakening the Dreamer, uses it to name the way of being our world needs from us. There’s a fierce urgency, but also a deep, boundless joy — even an equanimity from knowing you are doing what you’re here to do.
Paul Hawken uses the phrase for the title of his book, “Blessed Unrest,” in which he catalogues the incredible number of community and nongovernmental organizations working worldwide to advance social justice and environmental sustainability. These groups make up what he calls “the largest social movement in history,” an unprecedented collective “immune response” to the outdated paradigms and ideologies that have given rise to so much ecological damage and suffering to life on this planet.
