How to Change the World!

We are all praying, crying or begging for change. We all wish for “A Better World” There is so much pain in the world. I cannot pretend to be deaf, blind or dumb to it. Everyday I witness more and more people protesting injustice, hurting, bleeding, numb, lost, confused, resigned, resentful and caged. From police violence to racism, from virus diseases to lost aircrafts to suicides. But I also can’t help but see the good too. From Michael Franti’s song to Kindness blogs, upworthy news, inspiring stories, inspiring ideas, inspiring people, amazing people doing amazing things. I’ve said this before. If you really look, depending on the vision you have, you will see: There is Inspiration Everywhere The issue again is: Consciousness. It is a deep yearning of the soul to live in harmony and enjoy a peaceful world overcoming fears that separate us. Spirituality teaches us that we are actors in the stage of Life and that the masks that we use to relate to and interact with others are not our true identity. The true self is behind those masks, the spark of light that animates the body we inhabit. What the world needs is a SHIFT. A shift in mindset, in attitude, in vision.

So how do we create a change? By BEING the Change.

We all know HOW to be Good. Kind. Loving. Honest. Happy. Beautiful. Friendly. Peaceful. Supportive. Cooperative. Generous. Caring… but how many of us put it into practice?

May 2015 be your time to make a leap of courage, from material consciousness to spiritual awareness. That eternal leap from your masks to that spark of light: the great journey to our original nature. From spiritual consciousness, a friendly and respectful coexistence emerges naturally and change becomes a reality. We celebrate the conscious choice that drives us to the eternal beauty of the simple things, enjoying the grace of each moment. Congratulations to you, you gorgeous soul for this wondrous journey you’re on and thank you for joining me along the way. I wish nothing but the best for you in 2015. Make it your best one yet. 2015

Happy New Year!!!!!

Pedro Reyes is a Mexican artist who has taken 6,700 seized and decommissioned guns donated by the Mexican government and turned them into musical instruments! The result is a haunting version of John Lennon’s “Imagine” like nothing I’ve ever heard before. When you see the instruments up close, you realize how awesome it is.

This goes to show that everything we create is beautiful. The intention of the creation of those weapons was far from holy, but the Universe had always intented them to end up in Reyes’ hands. Reyes says, he is “turning these agents of death into instruments of life.”

William Morris once proclaimed

The capacity of seeing beauty means the capacity for art. If you have a population which cannot see beauty, you will have a population which cannot produce beauty: a population which, even if a small amount of beauty is produced by the élite, will not generally acknowledge that beauty.

It’s true that there are bad things happening out there right now, people using guns to subdue others, but I dream of a day where weapons are no longer used, where they are recycled to make instruments, to decorate, to collect as memorabilia. The Universe always finds a balance. Always.

Today, I say a little prayer for artists. They are our future. Our hope. A manifestation of our deepest fears and dreams. There’s a tiny little artist in each of us with the capacity to create. Reach out and give your inner artist a hug today 🙂

The Lost Thing.

Put life aside for 15 minutes and watch this video.
Yes, I know what I said and I mean it.
I promise you it is worth each and every valuable second of your precious time.
This is a short film done by Shaun Tan. Now, I don’t know Shaun. But I love him. He resonates with my mind and soul.

I remembered this video and wanted to share it with you today when I began to clean my room. Lol. Hear me out just a little longer.

So I began to clear my room and I thought to myself “I need to find a place for everything.” Every item that I was trying to organize had to have a designated spot in order for things to look neat. But some of my stuff don’t have a “place”. They’re just all over the place or they could be in different places at different times. But that causes disorder.

So I started to think about us human beings and how funny enough we’ve seemed to kind of created a sort of “tidy room”. We know where we’re supposed to be at all times. At home, or work or in traffic or at a dentist appointment. When we stray is when terrible or amazing things happen, or so we think. It’s only so because it’s unexpected.

So what would happen… if we all got messy for a day? There would be chaos wouldn’t there? Well this video touches on the subject of belonging and if you haven’t thought about it before, it will surely get you thinking about your place in this vast space.

What doesn’t kill you…

What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger
Stand a little taller
Doesn’t mean I’m lonely when I’m alone

What doesn’t kill you makes a fighter
Footsteps even lighter
Doesn’t mean I’m over ’cause you’re gone

What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, stronger
Just me, myself and I

 

That which doesn’t kill us makes us stronger is a famous saying by German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche. This quote has reasoning that suffering is an inevitable part of life thus human being have developed many ways to try to ease it–one of which is bestowing upon it transformative powers.

The quote talks about experience. If you survive a challenge, you come out physically and mentally stronger.

Stronger.

Strength.

Let’s talk about that for a second.

What does it mean… To be strong?

We think we know the right answer. But if you really think about it, what we really know is what the wrong answers are.

Being physically strong, for example, is a wrong answer. Being Stone Cold like Steve Austin… also a wrong answer. Is it about being mentally strong? Or emotionally strong? Being able to resist a temptation?

what is TRUE strength?

To me, true strength lies in being vulnerable. In accepting your weakness and learning from your fears. It is standing at a tip of a mountain with no guarantee that the wind won’t blow you over.

To be strong is to embrace the weak in you and carry it with love.

To be strong has nothing to do with strength at all.
