You must be the change you wish to see in the world.” M. K. Gandhi
Okay, yes and?
We look around at the world’s problems and wish they would go away, but do they? It’s not that people are bad or that evil is winning some kind of eternal battle. … toward an unknown future without any sense of morality or conscious purpose to direct it. … begins when we first find out about a social problem through the media, and viral impact of our technology spreading across the nation. Seriously, we look around at the world’s problems and wish they would go away, but they stubbornly persist despite our most heartfelt desires. So we end up living in a kind of ethical haze. The vast majority of us have good intentions when we go about our daily lives. It’s that we have been lulled into a sense of complacency around the world’s problems, like they are less than real occurrences so we react similar to how we might normalize strange events that occur while we’re in the middle of a dream. We are stuck in our daily routines of tick tock, living on auto-pilot when it comes to the rest of the world.
People starve, communities fall apart, violence thrives, families fade, and nature disappears, and we continue on with our lives as if nothing is wrong. But like a whisper in the back of our minds that stays with us always, we have the feeling that something has gone awry. We have lost our faith in each other. Politicians are corrupt, lawyers win cases without justice being served; it seems that everything and everyone is for sale. Nothing remains sacred. We feel that perhaps we can only truly rely on ourselves. When these negative beliefs become widespread, we disengage from the outer world, recoiling into our own personal lives. As we withdraw, we see our society rushing aimlessly toward an unknown future without any sense of morality or conscious purpose to direct it. Awash in a sea of knowledge, we lack the wisdom to guide our own destiny.
How did we end up here? Have we all become a nation of sleepwalkers? Are we that ignorant or is it that we cannot handle the truth? I think our friend recipient said it best in the replied response from his end to this email request to join along with this petition:
Awesome!! And this email below was a response from one soul that gets the biggest culprit, cynicism!
That is the Maya, the illusion, what would we expect but nothing more than another reaction out of the sheeples. What is the solution or what you say best ‘what are you we going to do about it’. The solution – stop buying the food from the grocery stores and start growing our own food. Oh my says everyone, that means we have to get off our asses and do some work, but rather than WORK we ALL bitch and complain, but to who? We have become a complaining negative lazy society not looking for solution but rather beating a path against the people we voted in, our demi gods – yes they will save us. We ALL know what the problem is and we certainly know what the solution is, don’t we!
The original email that no doubt went to a ton of addresses on Gmail!
In an obscene development, a Monsanto executive is winning this year’s ‘Nobel Prize of agriculture’ — the prestigious World Food Prize — for creating GMOs. Receiving it legitimizes the sort of rampant genetic modification Monsanto pioneered, and helps validate a ruthless business model that impoverishes farmers and monopolizes our food. If that wasn’t baffling enough, the founder of Syngenta, the same biotech giant joining Bayer in suing Europe to keep selling bee-killing pesticides, will also win the prize. The ceremony is in less than one week, so we need to act now.
Please join me in tell the World Food Prize Foundation not to reward Monsanto and bee-killer Syngenta’s outrageous practices… WE PURPOSELY did not add the link… for the shear fact its only spreading the problem… we don’t need to carry this one on…
Oh yah, then it ends with a…
Thank you. ?? Thank you for what exactly, we keep feeding the problems setting a petition is not going to stop what’s happening.
And so, that is where I had to begin this blog post…if only we can start sharing emails that hold us in a positive space, less negativity, less hate, less anger and ego rather we simply keep our mouths shut, and our hearts open to making a positive change in this world, and become part of a social change for the good. Giving, unconditional love, no judgement, observe it all with dispassion to save yourself from feeding into the negativity and that will go much farther in saving this world before the world ends us. Just Love… #JUSTLOVE one another.
Just build a Better YOU.
