How To Begin…
I have been thinking all day about people waking up or staying asleep to the harsh reality unfolding before us. If they do awaken, how will they know where to even begin making the necessary changes to move forward into a new world, a new way of being? Explaining to people how to be nice or good are such generalizations. I can see where newcomers will need a more specific explanation. So what do you tell someone just emerging from a long and troubled sleep? How do you break it all down and make changing how you live life doable to everybody?
I think you offer two clear options to choose between. People always need to know they have a choice which gives them back control. So what is it they can do to begin changing their lives in a way that is doable to them? I believe the core issues that need to be offered should be the choices of being either a Giver or a Taker in life. Its is all about how you live your life. Do you wish to give to others or do you wish to take from others. In order to be a giver your heart has to be open and be able to feel compassion for others. To be a taker one desires to live a more self absorbed life that sees life as they personally want it to be rather than for the good of all.
In order to have an open heart one must recognize we are all one, that what we do to others we ultimately do to ourselves. That old saying “Do unto others as you have them do unto you” is so true. It is a clear guide to how we can live our lives. Be kind, be gentle, be caring, be giving, be loving and live honestly, live life how you want others around you to live life and treat you. Choose the aspects you wish to embrace and live your life by them. If you choose to be a taker that is your choice and your right but be honest with yourselves as to which world you choose to live in. The new world is for givers, this old world is for takers. It is time to awaken and decide which life you wish to embark on. Choose wisely.
Blessings and love to all,
