Over the last year, the attempts to divide and conquer have become more obvious than ever before. People who may have been in denial that such arrogant and sociopathic behavior exists in corporate agendas and world politics are beginning to stand up for what is right, perhaps not even knowing what that is.
The behavior of our American government has declined into chaos and many are pointing fingers at each other. How is that working? For some reason, we continue to believe we are separate from each other and the aberrant behavior has nothing to do with us. It does. We’ve supported it, either willingly or unwillingly by remaining silent.
In the 21st century now, we still act like immature hooligans toward each other and it is on display for everyone to see so there can be no argument about it. It’s just how it is right now, today. Change. What about change? It’s frightening to many if not most people.
We don’t have training on how to adapt and grow; ascend from the fear to find freedom and the ability to do the right things. Our world is being torn apart. How is it done and who is putting it back together in some better fashion that serves everyone? If we cannot identify those latter folks, then it’s time we made some serious changes in how we see ourselves and the leadership we allow to be guiding our communities, states, and nation. Afraid of a New World Order that seeks to control and dominate?
Get off your couch and do something in your community to make a difference. Do something to build a healthier community instead of sitting in your walled communities, not even knowing your neighbors. We have become so self-centered and selfish in our behavior that we’ve forgotten what it is like to be caring, compassionate, and concerned about our children’s children’s children’s future.
Change is indeed frightening, even though we know it is necessary. Chaos to order has been perceived as arduous in a similar fashion, and in the midst of chaos, fear is the most prevalent.
We think of the journey from chaos to order as arduous. It is not. In fact, moving out of chaos is an enjoyable journey, beginning with the first step and supported afterward by the unseen hand that has guided us all along. It becomes an awe-inspiring meandering through the process, different and fulfilling for each person.
These aren’t just words. I’ve made the shift and am on a trajectory that inspires me daily, affects my attitude with gratitude and it’s shared with my wonderful wife, who is also deeply engaged in the process. Yes, having support surely makes a difference. It was an independent journey for decades.
Consider two people from opposite sides of the world, raised with seemingly diametrically opposed governmental ideals, coming together through a kind of cosmic conspiracy. We’ve found harmony in bridging differences by focusing on what we know is the same in everyone, simply the desire to love and to be loved unconditionally. What is it that assists you in loving so profoundly?
