The events of the current times calls for super human response from us,
The beauty of evolving as humans,
Beyond our passive feelings
To our empowered, proactive feelings.
Our feelings can be automatic
We can't choose to have and to feel
The healthiest, most forward-thinking feelings humanly possible,
The kind of feelings that make miracles possible.
Think for a moment of all of the qualities that you wish people had,
Think of what you wish you were seeing more of,
Courage, kindness, good deeds, the helpers, love, gratitude, forgiveness...
Focus on those who embody these qualities,
Embody these qualities yourself,
When all else fails, focus on what you are grateful for.
Thoughts can be proactive, courageous thoughts and feelings,
Courageousness itself can inspire others embody these.
Dare to be courageous! And forgiving and kind, etc.
Our thoughts, feelings, beliefs and our ways of being all have a ripple effect throughout the world, throughout our communities,
Do you wish there were more Gandhis? more mother Teresas? More MLKs and more RFKs?
Then embody their values.
We all know who they are, and all the good they have done,
Bring them into your own world, your own communities, your own families,
through your own being.
It's up to each of us.
