Needed Changes

There are things in this world that need changing. There are outdated thought processes and leadership. There are outdated religious beliefs that bring about separation and division that shouldn’t be there. Any religion that teaches separation and nonacceptance is not of the Light. We will not win through negative means. We will not win through violence. We will not win through fear tactics. These are part of the outdated thought processes. These are the mechanisms of control that we have used for centuries and nothing changes for the better by their use.

We have watched entire nations destroyed, innocent killed because we are literally bring war to their door steps. These people did not ask for this. They did not ask to have their homes and lives destroyed. We are continuing cycles which will ultimately destroy man kind. We MUST learn to love and accept one another. We must learn to work together as one WORLD instead of working separately for our own countries benefit. We need to take back our power and our voices. We need to stop accepting what we are told and start asking the hard questions.

We won’t get there over night. No one expects this to be an easy thing, especially when the only way for us to get there is to face ourselves. Facing ourselves is actually our biggest fear. We create electronics and sit-coms, distractions to keep us from digging too deeply into ourselves. We are afraid of what we might find there. We are afraid of what we know is there and most of all we are afraid to admit a lot of the things that we find inside us. We don’t want to admit that we really screwed up that relationship or that we lost our cool when we shouldn’t have. We don’t want to objectively look at the events of our lives and see our own mistakes. It isn’t easy to see that we’ve lead ourselves to the exact places we didn’t want to be. It isn’t easy to take ownership of our actions, both good and bad.

Right now we are a country at war with itself and everyone else it seems. We are fighting over the election and the importance of skin color, we’re fighting over who people are allowed to love and what a woman is allowed to do with her own body. Have we forgotten that the human body is sovereign and a holy temple unto itself? Who are we to tell someone who to love, would you want someone to come in and tell you that you can’t love and be married to your spouse? Who are we to force any action upon any human being that they do not choose for themselves? If we force a woman to have a child she doesn’t want, then what? That child ends up in foster care or worse, abused because they were unwanted. Why is this such an important topic when there are already children in this world, in this COUNTRY who are starving? Why are we trying to dictate what can be done with the unborn while ignoring the plight of so many who are already walking among us?

We are fighting and making derogatory comments about raising the minimum wage, but how many of you need those restaurant workers in order to eat? How many of you are dependent on these workers because cooking wasn’t an important skill to learn? I look at the generation that I come from and the ones that have come after and I am appalled at the lack of knowledge and ability to feed yourselves. We talk about the people who work in fast food as if they are less than us; several of them have degrees or doctorates but can’t find work in their fields. Even if that isn’t the case, who are we to judge anyone who is trying to make an honest living? If you couldn’t do their job then who are you to say what they should be paid for it?

We all need to take a good hard look inside of us and get a grip on what really matters. We need to be focusing our energy on understanding one another rather than finding ways to separate ourselves from one another. We should be tossing the phone aside and having real and meaningful conversations. How much do you really know about the people you hang out with? What do you know of their dreams and fears? These are the things that matter, these are the things that drive us. Wake up America, the future is calling, you are moving in the wrong direction!!
