Let us keep love, keep hope alive - Contigo! ;)
As I close my eyes and drift away to a land where there is love, health, peace, and blessings. I wanted to take the time to think and reflect. The truth is that I have been taking the time to think about my previous thoughts. With regards to the monetary gain - I wanted to make it clear that as thinkers, we also do care about the economy. Worldly events are what shapes the economy. This is both a positive and a negative. I think that when thoughts are shared, it is important to take the time to think about these. If you are in disagreement, rather than taking the time to react, why not take the perspective of hmmmm why not? If, or but, or could it be... in a sense, think of thoughts as a lens that is being offered. A new way of seeing. A thought does not demand an external action however, it may demand the internal action of, thinking about the thought. It is simply an invitation, an initiation.
Lately as we have seen in the media, the election race has become quite devastating, not just for people who are following the lead up to the election, but also this election is really showing the divisions that exist internally in America. It is very unfortunate. The Clinton Campaign continuously is partnering with global leaders to develop schemes, infectious bloody schemes that are hurting, and tearing people apart at the micro and macro level. It is these macro division that are filtering down to the level of the individual.
We need to have a leader that can see past the illusions, someone who is strong enough to know that - yes these divisions exist, yet also posses a deep passion, a desire to try to heal the rifts. Any type of change is hard. As human beings we don't like change, because it is unsettling. It takes us away from our routines. This is why I have always thought that what if we began to change our rhetoric's? What if instead of saying "change" we said "continuous improvement" ? This word does not evoke a type of fear from change. It is suggesting we are improving. If you think about it - can we ever change anything? Yes, we can - change is the end result of continuous improvement. To get to the end result we have to continuously improve. And yet when we get to our end result, we find that there is more to be done, more improvements to be made. So in a sense, change is simply a cycle of of continuous improvements.
We have to have these improvements because society is hybrid. It is constantly evolving due to the social and technological changes. We are a much more integrated society, due to the evolution's of communications, this is not to say that we should not try to keep traditions alive. This is the beauty of continuous improvement. We can take out parts of the previous, to add it to the prospective. In other words. We don't have to discard a past to shape a present or a future. We can use a past to project a future. Find out what worked, and what did not work. Ask question of why, and take it from there. You see, history is important. This also needs to be preserved in some sort of way or fashion. History points out how and why we got to where we are now. I think that today we are actually quite blessed to have history, because we have instant access to what worked and what did not work. In the same sense we must not loose our hope to heal the rifts and the divides. Regardless of the bloodshed's, schemes and natural disasters, that we hear of. We must not loose this sense of hope.
At this point I am reminded of Einstein who encouraged the watching of fairy tales. Yes, I admit I still like to watch fairy tales. Why? Because it takes us away from the harsh realities, into a world of lessons, projections, goodness and love. We are renewed with a sense of hope. That the world can be a harmonious place to live. We ourselves are renewed. As human beings we ourselves need to keep this hope alive within. Maybe it won't be in the form of a fairy tale, it could be any positive form outlet. Whatever the mechanism or means, we must keep hope alive. We must never loose hope of continuously striving to improve. It is easy to accept what is, it takes a large amount of courage to stand up for what is right. It takes a lot of introspection to unsettle the norms, to hope and shape for continuous improvements.
Let us hope, let us believe in love, in life. :)
Our thoughts, to invite and inspire. With Love & kindness. :)
