The Goodness of Humans

“I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples.” ~ Mother Teresa

Sometimes we humans are mean, greedy and petty, with a penchant for violence. But when a catastrophe comes along such as Mother Nature being unhinged, we all come together in a beautiful union.

Calamity brings out the best in us. It brings out our true Spirits of love and caring humans here on this planet to help one another. This is a good thing because in times of disaster we certainly need to join forces for survival.

We are in survival everyday on this planet; we just don’t know it. Our Earth could be wiped out in a second. So instead of raising fists, or guns into the air, or being right or left, or actually thinking we are better than our neighbor because of skin color etc., how about coming together as one making life good for all.

Think of all the good things we could do if we took all that negative energy that’s fueled by the fear of losing who we think we are and turned it around to all things positive. If we came together the way we do when disaster comes a knocking, think of all we could accomplish in our world.

There is so much goodness in humans. We just need to grow up, get over ourselves and let it flow out.  We need to finally learn the lessons of life.

“The idea of karma is that you continually get the teachings that you need to open your heart.” ~ Pema Chodron
