Be The Change You Want to See
Many people, especially the young are frustrated and despondent with what they find in daily life.
We live in troubled times. Whether more so than in history is debatable. While in some ways the present problems are more globally serious, particularly if we look at climate change and its predicted consequences. However, being immersed in the poverty, injustices, pain, hunger and the atrocities of world wars or any of the wars since then into the present, must feel like hell on earth, to those living it.
Even from our place of relative safety, issues involving struggles with costs of living, housing affordability and security and the task of finding sustainable employment, can be daunting. This can result in feelings of overwhelm or helplessness and hopelessness in the face of the scale of such enormities. So what can we do?
We have a choice.
We can sink into depression and inaction.
Or be mindful of our powerhouse. Our mind and its immeasurable capacity. We can decide to take our focus away from doom and disaster to something more uplifting and creative.
Create a vision of yourself being what you want to see in the world.
Think of one thing you can do. No matter how small. Dare to dream of this being here. Everything starts with a dream or a new idea. All it needs is the courage and motivation to make it a reality. Step by practical step, at your own pace.
This may start with something to uplift yourself, such as tapping into a remembrance of an old dream or experience and the use of the Wonder Questions, such as, ‘What if….? ‘How would it be to…? ‘Why not create…..?’ ‘Wouldn’t it be fun to create.. a product’, ‘discussion group….’, ‘a busy-bee for a much needed community task….’, or finally jump into your bucket list of dreams or dares. Learn a musical instrument, join a choir, a dance group, social group, build a garden; the lists are endless. If there is nothing out there that you want to join, create one.
Why not start with you and see where it takes you?
Many of us forget that we create our own reality to a large extent. Our thoughts and emotions have the power to manifest.
I am a person much like you who also experiences frustration and decided I would create my own bubble. A place where I offered services to create a way of helping people clear away the debris’ of their minds or the heaviness and pain in their hearts. Healing and clearing to gain more freedom and clarity to simply BE. In a way that assists them to connect to a purpose and as a bi-product serve my purpose and ongoing fulfilment as well, to sustain my ability to continue doing work I love. A win-win situation for all.
If more of us decided to use the power of our mind to be the change we want to see in the world, our world would have no choice to be in a constant state of change. Positive and progressive change in reclaiming our humanity, for what’s important to us.
In disconnected and depressed we give away our power.
Collectively we have immense power for creating what gives us joy.
Change in making sure we each have a say and a place in a world we want to live in.
