Are we changing the world by having an opinion?

If you could release your inner darkness and help heal the rest of your family and the world by simply letting go of hatred and judgement in the form of forcing your values on others and judging anyone for anything… and replacing all of that with love, compassion and understanding – would you?

No more time spent on politics, hate and rumor mongering, propaganda, name calling (i.e. millennials?), blaming, labeling, separating, walls, vaccines, abortions, guns or anything else meant to divide us. Because what good is all of that really doing? Are we changing the world by having an opinion? And forcing that opinion down others throats?

It is making us mean, hateful and hurtful. Period. That’s not how problems are solved. That’s how more problems are created.

When it comes time to vote, then vote. But until then, let’s make peace and stop pointing fingers and causing rifts where there doesn’t need to be any. And above all else; BE KIND.

If I told you, you absolutely could heal yourself and your family by doing this… would you?

Because you can. And what matters more than that?

Acceptance and the Great Divide

Humanity is going through it right now. There is a massive shift in consciousness and some are all too aware and others have no clue. But regardless, we must remain as “one.”

Right now, I, personally, feel a struggle from within to accept all humans and all behaviors and to get to a state of true acceptance and love.

For instance, I see grandparents and parents on social media condemning people who have abortions and calling them “murderers.” Then I see one of their family members who has had an abortion, for whatever reason, suffering at the hateful words of a loved one.

It is dividing us as humans and it saddens me to my very core. I struggle to understand how people can sit in judgment and ever condemn the actions of others when they don’t even recognize their own transgressions or the harm that they are causing others.

It is not for us to ever judge another human for any reason. We are only supposed to love and accept. Sadly, that’s probably the hardest concept for anyone to wrap their head around. Especially in this day and age.

It is great to have an opinion and choose to live your life a certain way. But when you impose that on others it only sets you up for judgement and hate. So all I can do is pray for peace and accepting times.

We were all given the gift of free will and must try to understand that others are free to exercise theirs as well.

We, ourselves, are the core root of any struggle and problem that we face. It’s time to start healing ourselves as individuals. Then and only then will we find peace.

When you are at peace with your transgressions – feel free to judge me for mine. But at that point – I don’t believe that you will.

Imaginary Lines

It’s bad enough that we, as in humanity, have drawn imaginary lines that separate and label us and that they are used to pass judgement, create stereotypes and even start wars – but in this day and age to even consider putting up actual walls to separate us even further – seems like regression.

Is this the kind of world that god intended? That’s what I find myself asking myself. And if not, maybe we should consider getting closer to that idea as opposed to getting further and further away from it.

It’s not compassionate nor humanitarian to group all people from one region into one or even two specific types. There are good, bad and indifferent everywhere you go and it’s probably roughly the same percentage rate across the board.

I’m not sure why all the scare tactics and propaganda are necessary right now but I would assume it’s to either lead us into a war or to divert our attention from what’s really going on in the world.

Either way it makes my heart hurt. Things that are meant to divide us are doing just that. Creating sides and opposition and fighting. And for what, honestly?

I see how widespread panic has been initiated and I see where people are buying in to the “We’re the greatest and we must protect our freedom” stuff that is going around… but what are you really afraid of and who do we need to be better than?

They say ‘veterans over refugees’ and where the hell did that come from? I would wager that if we build a wall… all of the veterans won’t magically be taken care of in every way. As a matter of fact – with the government shut down over the matter, our country is already suffering losses on our own soil.

There’s a better way to handle “border security” without walls. Handle it like when the immigrants first came to this country to settle it. I understand that it looks scary to see a large group of people headed towards the country wanting refuge and you may see criminals – but I see mothers and fathers willing to travel the world over to try and make a better life for their children.

It has been presented that everyone in Mexico that wants to come here is a sex trafficking drug lord. Is that what people are honestly choosing to believe?? There are bad people everywhere. But most people wanting to come here are willing to work for their pay. They are not looking for handouts.

I feel people’s attention is being diverted from the real problems of the world. We should start a go fund me for global warming (which is NOT a “hoax” and IS relevant) and start being concerned over the resources of the WORLD and stop acting elitist and better than everyone, because we aren’t doing anything better than anyone, plus that’s not even what matters for our survival.

We’re all humans and I believe that compassion and caring is the key to our future. Not borders and walls.

Plus, the main threat to ourselves – is truly ourselves, not anyone else.
