Christmas time, it’s foggy and misty outside and I feel that it is my duty as a writer to be inspired by the season and write something meaningful while I sip from a cup of hot chocolate in front of me.
However what I want to say is nothing new or christmasy. I just want to take a couple of minutes to share how grateful I am for this precious journey of life, everyday is truly a gift and an opportunity to create a positive impact.
In spite of all the things that are backwards in this world, in spite of this huge need for human beings to kill everything and everyone around them just to feel “superior”, I find the space to be thankful because I know that each day the chance for change is reborn.
I am thankful for the people that choose peace over violence everyday, for the people that look inside themselves to find true happiness instead of hoping to reach it someday, for the people that have opened their eyes and don’t settle for the current model of society a few are selling, I am thankful for all of those who listen to their hearts, spread their wings and fly.
The end of the year brings the countdown and remembrance of accomplishments and the new goals for the year to come, would it be possible to include one action to benefit all other living beings in this long list full of self-satisfying delusions?
Wouldn’t it be great to count down how many lives we served and how we helped to eradicate violence, hate, hunger, war, corruption, abuse, environmental devastation?
This human life is so precious that we have the opportunity to create our own reality and help those who are not in the circumstances to do so.
What if instead of supporting the destroyers of Earth buying all of this things and ideas that we don’t need we used that energy and that money in a practical way to actually change the world?
Walk more, drive less, meditate and treat others with kindness, acknowledge how important and kind others are, treat the world with respect and realize it’s possible to share.
Stop identifying yourself with one religion and one country, understand that we are all human, we are all important and we all want the same thing: love.
All living beings deserve the same freedom and respect as you think you deserve, it’s time to stop the violence towards our planet… we have the power to change the world what number of year are we waiting for to begin?
