So, where do we go from here?
Quiet simply the world is in our hands.. Its all about our choices, not our neighbours or our governments, Its about the choices We make which make a difference.
My own thoughts are that we have to start and embrace a simpler way of living, we have to stop ‘Wanting’ all the time.. We Want what is ‘best for a children’, We want the ‘best Money can Buy’ We Want the ‘Best Education’ We Want the ‘Best Health Care’.. We Want ‘Peace’ We Want ‘Better Lifestyles’ We Want ‘our Freedom’! We want! Want! and Want! .And yet none of these are relevant if we haven’t the Planet on which to live and enjoy these Wants..
I don’t propose we go back to primitive lifestyles, But we need to look at all the waste products we create, What we buy, how we recycle. What foods we Eat.
We can no longer bury our heads in the sand and hope it all goes away..We all need to rethink the way we each live our lives.. We are going to all have to take stock about what we Want for our future generations to come, and we are all of us in the future are going to have to adjust to living simpler life styles as the changes on our planet take effect.
Our World is Changing before our eyes, we are all of us witnessing the ‘Shift’ in our awareness as we link into the mass consciousness of like minded thinking..
But how do we Change?
Where do we go from here to create these changes?
We need to start thinking differently about ourselves, we need to start and Live Consciously within our daily lives.. Those choices we make every day- We the consumer have impact in our societies,and we impact globally.. Its already happening Here and Here it starts small, but its happening.
How many of us have seen our communities die as Big supermarkets come to town,.. We all want to buy cheapest, but at what cost.. Did you really look at your labels and did you support your local community? Do we really think about recycling the paper and plastic we buy and throw away? What ways are we helping our environment and local communities? Did you look around your own Towns lately and see just how many boarded up shops are on the high street?
I was so pleased with the responses from my last post The Domino Effect and all the comments. This post broke my record of the most likes in one day of 40 likes, and the comments were remarkable..
I want to share some of those comments here with you…
Livingsimplyfree Said—-….”If each of us took a stand for what we really believe in, staying true to our values, as I am trying to do I think we could make huge changes that the government and those corporations would have to listen to. For instance, my local grocer has listened to us ask for local and organic foods. During our growing season you will find the vast majority of the produce section set out with the signs telling you exactly which farm (and location) the food came from. That’s a huge difference from past years. I will only buy what I need from the local farmers in the store when available. That’s staying true to my values. “
Duma Key Said…………“The system is fundamentally flawed and the links are missing, the whole thing set out to provide and protect as become so lost, that it no longer knows what it is.
Its crazy that in this day and age, people struggle to feed their families, struggle to heat there homes….and yet day by day we churn out more and more rubbish that we don’t need………..”
DavidTenn Said ….” This internal change is only the start and once we have changed ourselves the world will begin to follow. As you say Sue when 100 of us monkeys come together in like mind Wow! Watch out world! Here we come.”
beverley Said … “There is so much noise in the world today that too many people do no feel or hear the rhythm of life that is going on all around us……………”
penpusherpen Said….. “the choice is definitely ours, Sue, and some days it’s hits you like a smack in the face that things are not right, will never be right ’til we all face up to our responsibilities…….”
Bodhirose Said…… “I hardly pay attention to the news and media blitzes any more because what you place your attention on is what will expand in your consciousness. I’ve realized that I need only be the best that I can be..the most positive in my own life and that will trickle out by that domino effect and reach out into the world. I believe every vibration that we emit goes onward and outward into infinity. That’s all and the best I can do……………”
andrewmstevenson said….. “………………It is possible, if desired, to live a simpler life. We lack only the will. I do believe there is a shift globally to put the future in more capable hands: our own!…..”
These are just some of a few selected comments, you can read them all in full and my replies on my Post. So what do we do and Where do we go from here? Have you even stopped to think about it and see ways in which you too can help change our environment and ways of living with recycling and creating ways to make your earnings go further? I know many out there are now sharing ways in which they are doing just that.
As you know I am a great advocate of our Minds over Matter, and our thoughts DO have a huge impact as we send out our vibrations into the world.. I resonated deeply with Bodhirose’s comment in what we place our attention on it will expand in consciousness..
If we Fear the changes we see taking place as the Crisis’s seemingly escalate around our world then Fear is what we will draw to us and chaos will reign .. But if we embrace these changes and do things in our own lives to help sustain and benefit not only our own lives but our local communities we are sending out a ripple to open up our hearts to each other..
We need now to stop fearing and start once again to trusting in each other, instead we huddle in our homes, locking doors behind us, no longer do we even know our neighbours, We need now to pull together..
That is why sometimes it takes a disaster in our lives to bring the community together again.. Lets not wait for a disaster to do that.. But reach out with your hearts now…. Even a Smile to a stranger is a start..
Its the intent that you send out with your minds that ripple out into that domino effect.. Let them be positive and full of love….
So My Question is.. Where Do We Go from Here?
And I would love to hear your Answers..
