Occupy Your (Higher) Self (VIDEO)

The Occupy movement continues to fuel protests across the country, but there are "Be The Change" lessons we can all apply to our own personal lives to be learned from the political dissent.

Peggy Fitzsimmons transformed these lessons into poetry in a piece called "Occupy":

Occupy your (higher) Self. 100 %.

Occupy your heart.
Occupy the place where everything is connected.
Occupy your own rhythm.
Occupy compassion.
Occupy your creativity.

Watch the video above to read the poem in its entirety.
