Go the Way of Gentleness

IMG_0988

In this crazy world we’re living in, sometimes we see and hear disturbing things on the news and all around us. It’s enough to make us lose ourselves and become out of sorts. At times, we feel so irritated that we lash out at one another and become rude or even mean. That’s not us, and that’s not the way to live.

We need to bring back our gentler side when we feel this way. The soft side that makes us warm caring humans. Yes, it’s easy to become tough and non caring when the world is cruel, and the urge to put on the boxing gloves is very tempting, but fight that force.

Let’s try creating a world around us of gentleness, and just maybe the outer world will eventually act in kind.

We Can

IMG_0633

We can be the change that needs to be.

We can be the beauty we long to see.

We can be the love that’s waiting to be freed.

But nothing will ever change unless we wake up, raise our voices, and demand the time is now!

Don’t go home and close the door behind you thinking you’re closing the world away because you’re not. Nothing gets better on its own. We are all connected, and when one part is sick we are all sick.

We can all do our part to make the world we live in a better place. Change can happen by how we vote, treat each other, and how we choose to live our lives. The important thing is to be connected and never give up the fight for change that needs to be.

The World’s Beauty is Enough

“At some point in life the world’s beauty becomes enough. You don’t need to photograph, paint or even remember it. It is enough.” ~ Toni Morrison

When I’m sitting on my deck and looking out at the simplicity and beauty of nature the problems and ugliness of the world we live in disappears. All I see is beauty, and I wonder, with this beauty how can the world be so cruel?

Maybe in life we all need to stop what we’re doing and really go outside and witness the beauty that’s before us. When was the last time you went out in the darkness and looked up at the stars and talked to the moon? How about a sunrise or sunset?

The world we live in is filled with so much beauty but we’re sometimes too busy to notice. We hear all the bad stuff that’s happening to our world, and we fear this is a bad place to be. But despite what man continues to do, the beauty is always present.

When you find yourself surrounded by the beauty of nature that is the world you live in, it takes your breath away. Standing there in the stillness you know that you can never duplicate, or truly explain what you are feeling. You have now become one with the universe.

When the world is upside down and tragedy is the word of the day, pull in closer to those you love.

When the world has gone mad and you don’t know who to trust, pull in closer to those you care about.

Go outside and sit down on the grass and feel the earth beneath you. Dig your fingernails deep into the dirt to know that yes, earth is still here and so are you.

Close your eyes, feel the warmth of the sun, and know that yes, the cold of the tragedy will soon be gone.

Hear the birds chatter away and know that there is still life on this planet, and tomorrow will be a better day.

But until then… hold your children closer tonight and smother them with hugs and kisses. Protect them while you can from the craziness of the world they live in.

let us all draw in a little bit closer, and care more for each other because we’re all we’ve got when the world goes mad, and aren’t we all just one?
