It’s no secret that your mind controls your life, and quantum physicists have proved that the mind programmes the body into proscribed reactions, such as anxiety, that then need to be trained back out. But what about positive thinking? How many of us try so hard and yet find our minds rebelling despite our best intentions.
Hands up, me too!
Yep I’ve been struggling. I know about the Law of Attraction and Cosmic Ordering, I know about visualising the life I want and not making too many rules about how it comes about, or precisely what it looks like. Visualise, turn up, do something, let the universe do its work.
However (and I hate that word sometimes)
I find myself living in a world I don’t recognise, where instead of healing division various factions from all walks of life, but especially the media, are creating reasons why we don’t like each other and selling them to us in a constant drip-feed of negativity.
Where people who wield power and influence pride themselves on all the problems they have, and share the damage, rather than sharing the solutions that made them whole again. Perhaps because they aren’t actually whole.
I Miss Queen Elizabeth
She was the one person I recall in my life, in a position of influence (she’d hate it to be referred to as power), that didn’t have an agenda of her own to press upon us. She had a duty, she was ‘Our Servant Elizabeth’, and her life was dedicated to trying to make things better wherever she went, whatever she did.
I so wish that our politicians, would be politicians, big stars with huge followings, influencers, and the media, would get with that programme.
It’s all about the young
Our society is getting worse by the day, more children murdered, young people stabbed on the streets, women abducted and murdered, innocent men being killed by someone who thinks it’s clever to wield a knife or try their marksmanship with a gun. And on and on and on.
We have gangs in the UK! Okay the Eastend traditionally had a gangland problem, but not as wide as we have now. I saw a heart-breaking news piece last year where young men were saying that if you didn’t join a gang they’d all come after you. So in this particular gang they took turns every hour to go and knock on every door and let all the mother’s know that they were okay. As they said “You can’t have mums worrying can you?”
Clearly decent and beautiful young men worthy of, and deserving of, a far better life than our advanced society is offering them.
Let’s stop blaming and think
It’s easy to say that someone else should have done something about (insert problem) a long time ago. But I can’t help feeling that we’re at the stage that we should all become the solution we want to see. Otherwise what kind of world are we leaving for future generations.
Instead of worrying about the problems and blaming others, let’s think about the way society ought to be and dedicate ourselves individually to being what we want to see.
Inclusion shouldn’t be a discussion. Acceptance isn’t a necessary conversation. Difference is something to celebrate.
Problems are there to be solved not traded on for money and fame. In many walks of life people would lose a reason to be if they solved all the problems, and maybe even their income.
Why raise your profile by highlighting problems when you can highlight solutions, or even BE those solutions?
Yes I’m a dreamer
And I know I’m not the only one. There are millions of us out there who see what’s going wrong and know how stupid it all is. We just need to be louder, prouder, and more determined to be heard.
People will always think we’re wrong. They will always denigrate us as dreamers, naïve, not understanding the real world, fluffy, and so many other things. But we are NOT wrong. We know what we’re seeing, we’re seeing the degeneration of society and how it’s affecting people, and we don’t need anyone to tell us that isn’t right. We know it.
Anyone calling us stupid or naïve, needs to give us good reasons why violence against women and children, using knives and guns, disparaging people because of their gender, race, colour, and creed, bullying in the workplace, and so on, are perfectly all right. They can never be right.
Don’t give up. Don’t give in. Don’t shut up. Because if you’re prepared to be the change you want to see and stand up for it, you are making the world a better place in a very real way.
You are a light in the darkness. Shine on for pity’s sake, for the sake of the children, the sake of the future, and the sake of the world.
To everyone’s happines
