It seems time for us to step out of our sleepwalking stage and begin to take notice of life again. It is time to question life and even more importantly, we must thirst for that knowledge again. We are loosing that part of who we are. I saw someone on television today going on about how marvelous the state of our country is. In some ways I’d have to agree, but then again no. Take this article for instance. We can’t be all peachy keen, humming along and have such a high rate of suicide. Something is out of balance. We can see the anxiety in our lives, we can see depression that often leads to violence and we all mourn mass shootings and violence, but we never seem to ask WHY have we become this way? What is wrong in our lives that needs correcting. What is driving this unrest to the brink? We will never know the answers and find ways to fix the problems unless we first accept we have a problem and then start asking the important questions. It seems like the logical next step in our evolution.
It is a very good time in our human story to demand new ways of thinking. We can’t be expected to continue on making the same mistakes and not doing anything about them. We allow political agendas to get in the way, our needs and desires get pushed aside because to bring them forth and speak about them does not fit in with a particular agenda. This is so wrong and it is holding us hostage to outdated modes of thinking that do NOT move us forward. It takes making noise about it, however, if we are to be heard. The problems have to be noticed and talked about, not just swept under the rug and quickly forgotten until another time. The circle is endless and so too it seems our issues. They repeat and repeat and instead of growing and expanding we are shrinking and pulling within.
We are supposedly the greatest nation who has everything and yet her people are not displaying happy emotions. Many are anything but happy. We are out of balance and there is no need for this. We can’t learn anything new if we aren’t paying attention! From early on in childhood we begin learning by watching those around us. Today we barely even pay attention to who is around us. Humanity has been in the Big Sleep long enough, it time now to awaken ourselves and rejoin the living. As we enter into the holiday season, this is one of the greatest gifts we give one another. Caring enough to notice and speak out in favor of improving our stand as a society. Lets do our very best to question, pay attention and embrace life again. If we do this we come together and when we come together, we have great strength!
Love and caring to us all,
