It seems like the world is in a constant state of watching and waiting. For what? For change. This is why change is so slow in coming despite our desire for it. Because we are waiting instead of being active and creating the change. It will not come about on its own. Love is what holds the world together like glue, but we have not been loving and now it is falling apart at the seams. It is not too late to make a difference, but it will take each of us getting off our butts, disregarding fear and stepping forward with courage to bring change forward. It begins with ourselves and how we see the world. Are we willing to see things differently? Are we willing to admit where we have failed in order to finally do what is right? Are we willing to accept the fact life up until this point has been one of lies and deceit? Shameful isn’t it, that we allowed ourselves to be duped by promises in order to have it all? And now what do we have to show for it? Poverty, disease, alienation from one another, loneliness, despair, fear, hopelessness, war, death and fake freedom.
It does not have to be this way if we can find the strength to face the truth and come together to create a better world for all. It takes each of us to stop believing the lies, it takes opening our hearts and minds so we can come together as one instead of seeing each other as not ourselves. Yes it takes courage, but isn’t that what the human spirit is all about? The will to go on despite the adversity, because deep within we know this is who we are. We are not the fallen we see laying before us. Yes we were lied to, yes everything we thought was real is not, but it is time to realize we must stop whining about what was and come together to create what can be. We seem to think it will be safer if we don’t make waves and rock the boat and just stay silent, but is it really? In the end it is the squeaky wheel that gets the grease. We see people suffering but because it is not happening to us or in our own neighborhoods we feel we can look away and do nothing. Really?
What happens when the suffering comes to YOUR neighborhood? I bet money you will be looking around for someone to help you and if they don’t come you will feel angry and let down and saddened about being ignored and forgotten. How can we expect help from anyone else, if we are not willing to help others? This is what life is really all about. It is not about working 9-5, not about how big our house is or what car we drive, or who we know or what our title in life is. It is all about learning to see the truth and being willing to become who we really are. It is about overcoming the lies we have been told that have been drilled into our brains since birth. It is finding the unexpected joy in helping others and helping them rise up from where they fell. It is about learning how to love and care for each other despite the differences, because inside we are really all the same. Human beings with feelings and desires and courage and caring and yes LOVE! We just have to find these attributes within ourselves once again and become active. No more sitting and waiting! We do not have the luxury of time on our side. It is now or never. This choice as always is ours to make.
