well, i think every man of conscience wants to. every guilty soul on the planet thinks that it would be better if some of the bad things didn`t happen and if they could just wave a magic wand then the world would be a better place.
but then what?
there are those of us who wake up in the morning and read the paper and say that we are going to hell in a handbasket and there are those who wake up and do some breathing exercises and visualise the sun shining in thier heart and smile and find that this feeling propels them to the coffee shop and off to work with that smile still going.
which is real?
but don`t read the newspaper and expect to find a smile, o.k?
when it gets down to the real basis of all of this, when it gets to the truth in all of this, we are not in any position of power or control of anything but to choose to read the newspaper or to choose to smile.
these are the only choices.
we can go to work and plan and develop and be part of teams and love our kids and grow plants in the garden and go on holiday and win, lose or draw in a game or two, but the only chance you have to change the world is to control your thoughts.
as soon as you do that then everything else changes too.
everything is driven by what you choose to expose your consciousness to.
if you watch news reports about war and disease, your world will be filled with hostility and illness.if you focus on love and joy then that will be your reality.
you are doing it...............
it has to be you, there`s nobody else reading this.
you aren`t going to be able to stop wars or rid the world of famine. there`s no amount of money or human effort available to stop poverty or homelessness.
it`s only consience and guilt that gets us manipulated into believing that we can.
we can only come away distressed from these issues and we are powerless to have an effect.
if it was a matter of money and effort then the problems would have been dealt with a long time ago.
those who show you the images of famine and war are taking your soul.
take it back.
do what you can.
with your hands and your attitude.
if everyone minded thier own little patch out of unconditional love for themself there would be no issues.
you can change the world by loving yourself enough to know what you can do and do it.
and, who knows, maybe it will become the next cool thing to do.
