So many painful events seem to have taken over the world in the last few days. I find myself pondering whether or not there is the option, the ability to change any of that.
I feel like we are meant to understand that there are more important things on this planet. We shifted our thoughts regarding religion and leadership many times before and we are able to do that again. A pattern, a system no longer suits the needs of the people it governs and we change it. It is time to do that again.
I don’t think a higher power created this universe, this Earth, these beings to allow it to go to shit. It is most assuredly our responsibility to fix it.
People say that money is the root of all evil. I would amend that the LOVE of money is the root of all evil. The love of something changes how we look at it. When we love something, we would do anything for it. We have to stop loving money. That shifts our focus. We have replaced our irreplaceable world with material possessions. We have the luxury of being able to choose what we want to do with our time. We are no longer in actual survival mode (as compared to our hunter/gatherer predecessors) as most of our needs are provided for us or we are able to obtain them with relative ease. Because of this, we are able to create a system that allows for frivolity. The monetary system was designed with the intention of providing freedom for those who work for it. Our idea of value became skewed and we no longer understand where true value lies.
I have to say that I truly don’t believe any higher power would have put anyone in these terrible situations, taken them out of it only to allow it to continue happening. We are meant to WAKE UP and to learn from the terrible things that happen on this Earth and to improve upon them. We are meant to see that there is more to this world than money and fear.
I understand perfectly that this world, this system we have created, with a money hungry society, with the mentality that our actions don’t affect others, with the belief that we still have to fight for survival is NOT WORKING. The system is broken. It benefits few, harms most, destroys the earth and perpetuates that cycle. I have to believe that we are meant to do more than consume, maim, hurt, and destroy each other. We are meant to find what love really means. We are meant to unify and care for our precious lives. That means all lives.
