Music to read by below:
As I was looking at pictures to use in my posts I came across this
one and suddenly was struck with a powerful wave of loneliness. I looked
at it quite a long while trying to figure out why it made me feel this
way. Then I began to wonder what other people see when the look at this,
how do they feel. It reminded me of such an important point we should
all remember. We all see our lives differently because we are different
and we need to respect that. So often our egos try to force other people
to see things our way because we feel our way is the correct way
because that is how we perceive the world. We believe things about our world according to how we perceive it, not because that is the way it really is.
We really need to understand this fact as it is one that quite often
gets us into a great deal of trouble. If how we perceive something is
incorrect, then who are we to be pushing our ideas on others?
It is important we are all able to remain individuals, that is our
God-given right, but perhaps we all need to rethink how we think about
things. Not about everything obviously, but there should be more
universal thinking that we all share together as well as our own
individual thought processes. Our isolation into our personal tiny
worlds hastened along by the internet and social media, is keeping us
locked into this narrow way of thinking, we see the world with blinders
on, our world and nobody elses. Narrow thinking keeps us stuck in our
tiny worlds, expanded thinking allows us to see the world from many eyes
instead of just our own. This is all part of the process of learning
how to care about others. You have to know about the others and
understand them first before you can care about them.
This isolation we are living in is allowing all kinds of tragedy to
take place around the world, because if it is not happening in our
little worlds we do nothing! Life is not about just our tiny worlds we
exist in, it is about the whole of humanity everywhere. We are all one
species sharing a planet. I often hear people say “How is what is
happening in China or Syria hurting us?” It is hurting us because it
lessens who we are, it shows our disconnectedness and our lack of caring
and our unevolved( spell check says there is no such word as unevolved,
so I’m creating it!) way of living. If we allow inhumane things to
happen in other countries, who is to say those same misfortunes will not
fall on our door step one day? Our little worlds will not always be as
secure as they are forever and we must remember that. Everything changes
sooner or later. When you reach out to help others make change in
distant lands you are doing the same for your own country.
These times we are living in are obviously very challenging and bring
to us many lessons to be learned if we are to move beyond where we sit
now. These times are asking us to learn how to step outside of ourselves
and the worlds we live in and join up with the rest of the world.
Therein lies our power. When we climb outside of ourselves and reach out
to help others we grow inside and feel good about ourselves. Now
imagine the world if everyone was feeling good about themselves and
reaching out to others. This is why I keep hammering home the almighty
black box taking over your dens and living rooms. They keep your
thoughts isolated and unfortunately focused on falsehoods. They don’t
challenge your thinking and ask you to stretch it outside of your box!
Television diminishes you rather than expanding you. Turn it off and
start expanding your horizons to include the world at large, not just
the war and tragedy the dark ones would have you see. See your life
through love and compassion and blossom.
Blessings to us all,
