It’s Time

Renewal

Yes, it’s time for Peace.

“When the power of love overcomes the love of power the world will know Peace.” ~ Jimi Hendrix

But peace won’t come until real Change starts to happen, and we can actually feel and see it taking shape.

“You have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.”
~ Harriet Tubman

Something will still be missing for peace to come and that is Healing.

“There is force in the universe, which if we permit it, will flow through us and produce miraculous results.” ~ Mahatma Gandhi

This force is the Healing we and our planet so need before peace will come.

Change, Healing, Peace. This will be hard for some because it’s a different way of thinking and living.

Start by emptying all the misinformation stuck in the brain that has been passed on from generation to generation. Look at life with a new perspective. Practice forgiveness, acceptance and humility. Open the door and let love in to banish hate for good. And get rid of fear. Many times when we don’t understand something or someone we fear it and pass on negative judgments.

Just like the picture of the flowering strawberries above, we too are ready for renewal that will lead us to Peace. So let’s begin.

Get Over It

“Whatever we can’t love or accept in another, is a mirror of something we can’t love or accept in ourselves.”
~ Brenda Shoshanna

It’s 2020 and some of us still have trouble getting along and accepting one another no matter what color our skin or what religion we happen to be. Really? It’s getting exhausting don’t you think? It’s not rocket science that we humans all have a right to be on planet Earth, along with all the other beings.

We humans are supposed to be the guardians of our planet, but how are we supposed to do that if we can’t even care for one another? There is no superior race; we are the human race, simple as that. There is no right or superior religion. Everyone should believe, or not believe whatever they want. No one has all the right answers, or for that matter, any answers. In truth, we are all just trying to figure it out.

Whatever pompous reason some think they have to hate and not trust, or causes some to feel they are better, just stop it. I say, try opening your arms and be accepting for all our beautiful differences. Diversity rocks, and we need one another to survive.

“We are all a little weird and life’s a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love.”
~ Dr. Seuss

If this is what it takes, then let’s all be a little weird, and get over it and live in peace.

Open Up

Beautiful

The beauty of nature can cure even the grumpiness of days. Get outside, breathe in the sweet air, and if you’re lucky, the sun will plant a great big kiss on your face. Feel the trees embracing you as they do a swing dance in the breeze. What about those silly flowers? Well, they’re busy laughing and telling the bees all the latest gossip and perhaps a few of the secrets you keep.

Come on, open yourself up to nature and go play… at least for a day.

Tiny Puzzle Pieces

 

“When we see others as the enemy we risk becoming what we hate. When we oppress others, we end up oppressing ourselves. All of our humanity is dependent upon recognizing the humanity in others.”  ~ Desmond Tutu

Each of us possesses a piece of the puzzle to make humanity work and save our planet. Great and small minds alike have ideas that can work; we just don’t know we have such a thing hidden deep inside us.

Overcrowding, pollution of all kinds, hatred, greed, evil ideologies, etc., we do have the answers to solve. It just takes a strong desire and a pulling together. Maybe that’s our calling and why we are here on Planet Earth.

The only thing we have to fear is the fear inside of us and the fear and mistrust we have for one another. The only way to combat this fear is acceptance. We need to get over our prejudices, superiorities, judgments, and all around memes in our minds.

Find out what your tiny puzzle piece can do to make a difference. Crafting great letters to your representatives, writing articles to inform and educate, volunteering for cleanups, volunteering for anything, asking your neighbors not to use poisons on their lawns and plants, watching out for each other, and just being kind to all beings.

If we don’t come together with a tiny piece of the puzzle and start making changes we might all be doomed. Dig deep and find your power. A little bit here, a little bit there, it all will make a difference.

Let’s all walk gentle upon our Earth and feel the need to protect her and all the beings that live here, including the crazy humans. If we don’t, who will?

“The Earth is just not our environment. We are the Earth and the Earth is us. We have always been one with the Earth.” ~Thich Nhat Han

Ignorance

Ignorance produces fear and fear produces hate. We fear what we don’t understand, and we become ignorant when we don’t take the time to educate ourselves so we can understand.

Stop letting ignorance drive you to hate because hate will ultimately destroy all of us and this beautiful place we call Earth.

“Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.”

~ Martin Luther King, Jr.

Renewal

It’s spring and all is awakening and new… are you?

This is your time to start fresh and throw the old habits far, far, away.

As you awaken do you feel nature nudging you?

Nature too is feeling all anew, and is in full force so depending on you… will you be there?

Perfection is overrated, and maybe you shouldn’t be trying to place it in nature. So, can you give up the green, green, lawn and the perfect of perfect roses?

Don’t try and control, but instead, just flow.

If nature can live with imperfection, so can you, you know?

Let’s give up the toxins used to create an imposed utopia and live in balance with flora and fauna.

Our planet is fragile you see, and we all need to walk upon it carefully.

So this is your time to awaken and be new, and to also protect the Earth that is feeding you.

“Walk as if you are kissing the Earth with your feet.”

~ Thich Nhat Hanh

Be the Light

Be the one that lights the way for others to follow, and be that person that others are drawn to. You see, when you are the light that shows the way, you bring peace and harmony to everyone that passes your way.

When you’re the light you bring comfort to those that are near. As others watch you closely and are drawn to your smile, kindness and warmth, you become contagious, and they too become the light and can’t help but pass it on.

On and on the light that started with you is passed from person to person and what finally happens might be called a miracle. Everyone feels good inside–no drugs needed for euphoria. Everyone loves every living being–hatred disappears and acceptance takes its place. Everyone is content–wars disappear.

Be the light that saves someone’s day, and maybe, just maybe, as this continues on we as ONE can cast a strong enough beam that will light the way to save all of our days.

This is my wish for peace and harmony here on planet Earth.

Go, and Be the Light.
