The most effective way to change

Love your self

They were right, you know

It’s always been right under our nose.

Specifically, under our rib cage.

But it takes courage to follow our heart

It’s not that easy.

But everyone has the strength.

It’s just sitting there waiting to be tapped

If you think you’re worth it.

and the river an ocean, the currents and tides more powerful than me.

“We are in the midst of a momentous event in the evolution of human consciousness, but they won’t be talking about it in the news tonight” -Eckhart Tolle

The media isn’t feeding me calm. It’s giving me excitement, constantly. So now I’m constantly treading water, head bent up, mouth barely above the water.

“Open up your mind, in pours the trash.” -Meat Puppets

The information age has empowered everyone. How to use that power determines your quality of life, and our evolution of consciousness.

Where are you directing your power?

You help create the environment that you live in

“We have no reason to distrust our world, for it is not against us. If it has terrors, they are our terrors. If it has an abyss, it is ours. If dangers are there, we must try to love them. And if we would live with faith in the value of what is challenging, then what now appears to us as most alien will become our truest, most trustworthy friend…Perhaps every terror is, in its deepest essence, something that needs our recognition or help.”

Finding differences between groups based on a few examples we see online or on TV exaggerates the superficial differences between all us human beings. But we are not different.

There is no us and them.

There are challenges for some people which can be too much to handle. These people cannot help develop bias and attitude because of their experiences. Whether a black person unjustly questioned and searched on the streets, or the officer on the streets being disrespected for being a cop.

These challenges are important to address, but they should not develop into lines drawn in the sand, divisions between people or races. Assuming negative of one group is just as bad as assuming negative of the other.

We help create the environment that we live in.  Any true divisions between us are faint.  We must be vigilant in not generalizing, catastrophizing, or amplifying those small differences, as much as these differences seem to stand out.

There is no us and them.

Don’t become a victim of the environment.

 

Our children will be taught

4.1.1

Our children will be taught what their parents, or parent, teaches them.

Our children will be taught what their community, and society, teaches them.

It can be a lesson that they are poor, so it teaches them a poverty of life.

And it can teach them that they are not valued, and that it’s not worth it to try. It can teach them hopelessness, so it teaches them a poverty of mind.

And what chance will they have after that?

How to make change real.

Obama-Hope-Change-Forward

We voted for change with a young, idealistic black man with our current president. Today, we look to an old, critical white man for the same change.
The most meaningful change to strive for is in our own life and our own community. The rest is…overblown. The work done up there in the halls of government is important, but not as important as the attention we give to our own lives and neighborhoods.
The best hope to have is in yourself and the friendships you forge.

The day you actually changed

“Everyone is crippled in some area, and everyone is somewhere on the path of evolution, some ahead of us and some behind. In the steps we have walked are the old lessons of life, and before us are new teachings.

There is nothing to feel guilty about and nothing to blame. There is no one to hate, but there is that which is better avoided, and such blind alleys will become increasingly apparent.”

The day you awaken is when you see the blind alleys you turn into.

The day you actually change is the day you know you are not that person anymore.

Follow me and I will take you away from the everyday.

If this is something you care about, then SHARE it.

Less observation.

More participation.

We can do better, if we choose the people who will do better by us.

“States will never be happy until rulers become philosophers or philosophers become rulers.”

Why are we voting for leaders who are career politicians? Why are we voting for leaders who want to rule us, with their rules, instead of guide us, and empower us?

Actually, we’re not voting for leaders. We are voting for managers, accountants, and technicians. Let’s vote for leaders, instead. Leaders who want to inspire us to do better in our life, not give us a life where the best deal becomes the paternal controls of a corporate employer driven by profits, or putting our retirement money in irresponsible investment bank 401k’s.

We can do better, if we choose the people who will do better by us.

It’s always been up to us. Despite all the money in politics, the biggest factor still comes down to your vote.


Follow me and I will take you away from the everyday.

If this is something you care about, then SHARE it. Let’s get out of the stands and into the game. Let’s interact.

It’s only after we’ve lost everything

No lives matter


 

Lose the egos. Stop the fighting, the static, the taking. Everyone had the privilege of being born out of the nothingness of the universe and is damn lucky for that.

Having the confidence to recognize that we have the power to do anything we want is the trick. Those who are too weak to see this need to be helped, yes, but not by petition, or internet clamoring, or government institutions, but rather by people.

It’s easy to let a program handle a problem rather than handling it ourselves. But it’s way less effective, or lasting, or powerful.

How to become more powerful than 99% of the population starting today

“Simple kindness to one’s self and all that lives is the most powerful transformational force of all.

It produces no backlash, has no downside, and never leads to loss or despair.

It increases one’s own true power without exacting any toll.

But to reach maximum power, such kindness can permit no exceptions, nor can it be practiced with some expectation of some selfish reward.”

-David Hawkins

And in order to provide meaningful kindness, you’ve got to have something meaningful to give.
