Our Wake Up Call
One has to notice a trend – it’s becoming more common lately to hear about these mass killings and the perpetrators killing themselves. We have to ask ourselves, What is going on? Some people are saying we need to strengthen gun laws. Others are saying we need to look at the resources and help available to those with a chemical imbalance or mental illness. Both of these statements are true; these areas need to be improved upon.
But, I am saying we also need to go further and look at why this is happening. There has to be a cause; it’s happening too often to not notice something isn’t right.
So what is the underlying reason? I believe it has to (at least a good part) do with the world we live in or more exactly, mass consciousness. These young people are tuning into thought-forms of greed, lack, selfishness, dishonesty, every man for himself, fear, hate, judgment, etc.
This is a wake-up call for all of us. We need to start talking our talk. We can no longer think it’s up to someone else to change things. To believe it’s not my fault the world is the way it is, I didn’t have anything to do with it or someone else made this mess. Thinking like that is an error on our part. Unless we are the solution, we are part of the problem.
So what can you do to help?
You can start by holding yourself accountable for how you live your own life. And that includes your thoughts. Are you holding your thoughts as high as possible? When you find yourself slipping, do you catch yourself and send forgiveness and blessings instead? Are you showing courtesy and warmth to your neighbors, people you come into contact with during your day?
If you are a parent, grandparent, legal guardian, aunt, uncle, teacher, or other professionals who are in contact with children it is our job to teach them about the virtues of life. Spend time with them, show them you care, uplift their spirits, plant seeds of confidence, pride, and good self-esteem.
A person can either tune into Divine Mind or Truth or Mass Consciousness. When a person knows to follow their own intuition and act on their inner guidance they can steer their life to one that is filled with happiness, love, and abundance in all ways.
We need to teach young people about the Truth so they have the best opportunities to create a life that is in harmony with their true nature
To follow your dreams and often times the road less traveled takes courage. To do this one needs to know to always listen to that inner voice and to not care what others think. There is a lot of pressure and mixed messages coming from the media, and everywhere in the world. It is up to us to help steer our children in the right direction so they can find their way.
This goes for the adults in your life too. Take time to give someone a compliment. Tell them what you admire about them. Life goes by fast and we often don’t think to do this. We all need to know we are cared about and to feel valued.
We can’t just get by doing the minimal. This is a time to get more proactive. Speak out against a cause if you feel it is worthy. Or volunteer someplace that holds meaning for you. We can’t be complacent anymore. It’s time to get more vocal and create the world that we desire to live in.
Last night, President Obama said pretty much just this. He was saying that we need to take action and demand a change. He said he would use all the power his office held to make changes. But he can only do so much. I think most of us, myself included, have been complacent for a long time. We don’t realize the power that we do have, especially with the internet today. Let’s be heard and create a better world today and for our future.
Ask yourself, Are you happy? Are you living life from love or fear? Only you know what will truly make you happy. You don’t have to live your life to fill anyone else’s expectations or ideals.
Take back your precious time and life. Only you know if you are on the right path. Each one of us is here to walk a different path so no one can tell you what is right for you.
Most importantly take care of yourself. If you don’t feel like your wells are full, you won’t have anything to give away.
Remember to send good thoughts to those in your life; to pray for others and our planet. Reach out to others, especially around the holidays it can be difficult for people who are single and don’t have many people in their life. And also the elderly or those who are in poor health need to be remembered.
What strikes me is how we all pull together in a crisis. I can feel us doing it again. It is inspiring. Let tragedies be the catalyst for change. We don’t want to live in a world where killings like what’s been going on are a common stance. Remember, until we begin to make shifts in our own lives, we are part of the problem. We are all responsible for what happened on Friday in a small town in Connecticut.
And until we realize that, we can’t begin to change any of it.
