Sometimes my friends and acquaintances on social media lament on the current state of the world, saying how bad the situation is. The rivers and oceans are polluted, the sky gets sprayed with chemicals, we have medical systems that treat symptoms (and often create more) rather than acknowledging the whole person, we spray our food with harmful pesticides, put mercury in our mouth when we have fillings that are caused by eating too much junk, we spend too much money buying too much crap that we don't need and we have education systems that squash the creativity and curiosity out of children. To some extent I see where they are coming from. Ugh! I also see something else, a different viewpoint.
There is so much more to us than this. Maybe we are reading too much alternative media and focussing on that. There is so much going well in the world and we don't often get to hear about all of that. There are so many people creating a different way of being on the planet. There are millions that do care and truly do their best to show up. If we only focus on the negative stuff, we are only going to attract more of it into our lives and get stuck. To be a person of the 21st century, one that truly hopes to make a difference in this crazy world we need to push aside all that negative news and information (even the 'alternative' stuff). Okay, we know the negative situations that are going on in many parts of the world and as much as possible, we can chose to have nothing to do with it (this is different from not caring, I care but if there is nothing I can do, I let it go and get positive, using my energy in a constructive way) . I am going to live my truth, share my viewpoints with those who are open to listening and accepting everyone else as they are, whatever stage they are at.
I no longer get annoyed at politicians and all those in the various systems that I consider to be adding to the problems. It's not a them and us situation, that just creates further division. We are all in this together. Each of us can do so much by being ourselves and allowing our unique vibration to expand out into the world. We don't need to judge those who we consider asleep or get annoyed when others act negatively. We just continue to live in a peaceful, powerful and positive way and ignore the negativity. By living this way we don't waste our energy focussing on what's not right in the world and we begin to have more of an effect on people and slowly, slowly things will change. For those of us that want a better world, respectful of each other, the planet and all of life, we don't need to wait for a utopian future, we just need to accept everything and everyone as it is now and get on with being the highest expression of love that we can manage. This is so much more effective than focussing on what is wrong in the world.
In spite of the crazy times we live in, I have so much faith in humanity. We are divine beings at our core. All of us. At the right time we will remember this. We are going to pull through and together, at the right moment, we will be once again be a healthy race (the human race), aware of our truth and who we really are. Many blessings to you.
