I often ponder why the world is in it’s current state. Where people would prefer to help the environment, animals, or other causes instead of people. Which I must say I’ve been totally guilty of myself.
Perhaps people have forgotten what Love or Loving each other looks like? Maybe because we live in such a self centered, self promoting world that the majority of people just don’t care about others any more.
Oh how I don’t want to believe that. I think more than anything it was a subtle shift in society where we began to believe life was more about what we get, we do, we want, need, desire that we’ve forgotten that we are the ones who change what the world looks like.
Between people judging each others lives, choice, opinions, or even following others without even questioning what they believe – we’ve become less than what we were created to be. Powerful, Loving and Compassionate beings. It’s what separates us from the animals and yet in this time many would believe that animals have more compassion than any person they ever met. I know I did for such a long time.
It is none of my business that choices another makes unless they ask me my opinion. It is none of my business what acts or beliefs another has unless I have somehow been involved in a conversation which I was invited into. Having a relationship where influence is involved makes all the difference in the world when moving forward in this world.
I believe we were all created equal and it was man/woman who decided to change or treat others differently. But we have a choice and that is how we will live. We can choose, despite our circumstances that we were born into, what our life will look like. That has to do with our choices – is it hard? YES – but everyone has difficulty – yours are not greater than mine and mine are not greater than yours – THEY ARE DIFFERENT.
We need to stop comparing each other and listen to each other, find compassion and empathy for each other no matter what or where they came from or came through.
YOUR PART is TO BE – YOU. To consider those around you, to empathize with situations, think about the things they may or may not have been through that created who they are. NO ONE is born bad – NO ONE is made disposable. LOVING someone just because is not wasted, you may not see the results but know that the seed was planted and you just may have changed the stars in some one else’s life. Let that be enough – Let your effort to do good be all the reward you need and Let the rest be.
I want to change the world so that people will see the hearts of each other, see the gold, the goodness and no longer focus on the things they disagree with. AND what’s wrong with that? Let us all do our part and begin to see others as they are, as their hearts need to be.
LOVE is always the answer, we just need to understand what that looks like. LOVE IS PATIENT, KIND, ENDURING, NOT JEALOUS, BRAGGING, LOVE can change the world if you and I do our part.
Be kind and love one another.
