There is much suffering going on in this world right now. You only need to switch on the news and see, you don’t need me to remind you.
How can we help with any of this?
Activism. Giving. Taking action. Generosity. Coming together. Working together. Stepping up. Speaking out. Helping people. Understanding. Being patient. Prayer. Co-operating. Doing what you can to help people with the resources, experience, skills, privilege, knowledge and time you have.
Compassion and Love.
Two things that may really help in our collective healing are compassion and love.
We need to step up the self love and the self compassion. We need to step up the love and compassion we have for our family and friends. We need to step up the love and compassion we have for those in our communities, in our countries, in different countries and for every living being on this planet.
How we all act, think and be as an individual effects the collective. And how we act, think and be as a collective consciousness effects the very world we live in, the events we see and the state of our planet.
We need to work to understand each other and love each other. We have to forgive. We have to care for each other. We have to deepen our compassion and our love. We have to want to be at peace over being right. Because we are all one of the same thing. We are all human beings. We are all one part of one collective body. We are all of the same essence. We are all one.
I challenge myself with this as much as I challenge you all reading. Girlfrand over here is not a perfect unicorn only spreading sparkly cupcakes and rainbows. I can still sometimes make quick judgements on the people I am supposed to love, I still battle with a harsh inner critic and I can let my ego run riot in wanting to be right over being at peace. And I still have a lot I can do to help this planet and healing the environment. I have work to do. We all have work to do. We need to step up and do the work so that we can create a world in which our great grandchildren are like, yes, they made this world a more peaceful place and healed this planet of ours.
I have hope that if we develop more love, kindness and compassion then we can make some good changes in this world. I know things are very complex and you might think this is all a bit airy fairy, but I think it is definitely worth a try. Plus, I think the Dalai Lama knows what he is talking about 🙂
Happy Weekending 🙂
