Crazy World…

“…something very beautiful happens to people when their world has fallen apart: a humility, a nobility, a higher intelligence emerges at just the point when our knees hit the floor.” ~ Marianne Williamson

Sometimes it feels like nothing makes sense anymore. From the political climate, to mother nature, it feels like the world has gone mad. Why is all this happening? I believe the universe is screaming at us to wake up!
I think everything (really everything) has gotten out of sync. There are too many people so deep in their heads, so unconscious to what is truly real, that the only way they will wake up is for their world to fall apart.
Why do we as humans have to reach a point of falling apart before we awaken?
We are at such a divided place as a country. People are being manipulated like pawns in a game, being played by people with power-hungry egos. What can change people’s thinking at this point, when we are so afraid to admit we may have been wrong? We are so afraid to admit that what we believed our whole lives was wrong.
Catastrophic things happen. Disasters are equal opportunity. Disasters don’t care about your race, social standing or money. In the middle of a disaster everyone is at the same level.
In the middle of chaos, the mind stops. When you can’t think anymore something else takes over. Your inner being, inner voice, your soul. THAT is the real you. Listen to it. Experience the world from that place, not with your mind.
Notice that at that moment that people that you may have judged, condemned or hated are still willing to help you and show you compassion. Talk to people, get to know people different than you, love people. THAT will change the world. LOVE.

Blog Post 12.15.12 (I want Peace…)

I am done with giving my energy to all the negative horrible news, bombarding me non-stop.  I have had so many thoughts running through my head, so I thought I would put them down in a post to share.  Some will agree with what I say, some will not.  But I thought I would get this off my chest and move on.

The last year or so I have been on a search.  You could call it a search for myself or a search for inner peace or a search for happiness.  Some will probably say I am in a “dream world”, or I am naive, but if you just allow yourself to open your mind you may see a different point of view.

Peace, we all say we want it.  But how do we exactly achieve it?  I do believe that we will never achieve it with violence (of any kind).  I believe that if we truly cared about others, their happiness, their well-being, we would eventually have peace.  We have to get out of our “what’s in it for me” mentality, well-being for everyone will only make things better for everyone (this includes healthcare, both physical & mental).  I think peace is contagious and it spreads.  Peace cannot be forced on someone.  It has to be shown by example.  ANYTHING negative or violent will NEVER achieve peace.

Guns = negativity = destruction.  There is nothing positive that would ever come from them.  You may try to rationalize it but the bottom line is all they do is destroy, that IS their function.  You can say protecting yourself is positive, but if your mentality is about protection, you are not thinking peace and it’s a negative thought.

People are not born wanting to hurt others.  That is put into people’s minds.  Everyday there is violence and negative energy on the news, on tv shows, on the roads and people’s attitudes.  Have you ever tried to say something nice or help someone that was angry toward you or meant harm? Maybe you should try it and you may be surprised!  I do believe everyone wants to be loved, it’s human nature, and a lot of people have never been given that.

Ok, I have expressed my opinion.  I will now stop commenting, “liking”, re-tweeting posts related to the horrible event from yesterday.  I will stick to my usual positive thoughts.  You may comment or share this post.  I will not comment on positive or negative thoughts, all my thoughts are above.  I will approve comments as long as they are constructive whether positive or negative.

Thank you for listening.

Peace…
