How much longer must we choose to ignore ourselves and our fellow people? How much longer will we ignore our children? Our animals? Our trees? When will we say that life does not have to be like this... we all know it in our hearts. Life could be beautiful and cohesive.... natural. How many times will we take a puff off of that cigarette and play the rationalize game with what we know it is doing to us?
When will we finally realize that the reason things are the way they are is because of all of our actions, not just the big corporations, or evil governments...or religions. Do not blame.. accept responsibility and take action. When do we get off our couches and make a difference? Too big of a problem for you to handle alone? Then don't... Do what you can in your own life.... but do. Create the intention for change and power it with action. You will contribute that to the collective... you do not have the necessary perspective to see all the different lives that assist you...and vise versa... have faith.
When will we as a society stop encouraging greed and start listening to our voice that tells us right from wrong? When will we say that buying things with the intention of breaking down so we can buy more is unnatural? When will we shed this cyclic consumerism and go back to the natural path of conservation? Of making something that is built to last. When will we take pride in our work again... in ourselves? When will we redefine what is sexy? when will we finally be aware that these bodies are all just vehicles and our obsession with them is so silly... and devastating.
When will we release our hate and fear for those that challenge our own self image and realize that we have more in common than we could ever have in difference? When will our holy men realize that fear separates and divides...and choose the path of love? That if they only truly tried to understand what connects them.... the drive for peace and love...brotherhood and integrity...is so much stronger than fear and the beliefs that separate them.
What about feeding the hungry and eliminating poverty? What we are not capable? when will we start to ask questions and moving for change? How many days must we choose to dehumanize our classmates and friends.. strangers behind the register.. just because we choose not to question why? Why do we feel this way? Why are we not happy... when we all want to be?
Why must a handful of people decide what is best for all? How is that even physically possible? Why must we drive such big gasoline hungry cars when some part of each of us knows that we are bleeding our mother..... by cutting down our trees we are eliminating our source of oxygen?. when will we find our courage to make a stand? To say NO.... enough is enough.
I want a life where my children do not have to suffer and toil to just to survive in a society without morals and compassion. When will we break the cycle? When do we move our stationary ideas? When do we become compassionate towards all life? I used to think most people were just out for themselves... now I know the truth...most people are generally good people... you are led to believe that you as an individual are small and have no power...just like we teach our children... an adult can seem as big and as frightening as our corporations and governments make us feel at times. Keep that in mind... it is fear that makes us feel so small.... we as humans built the corporations and religions and governments.... without us they would be powerless.... We are the power. When will we rediscover it and change everything?
When will we realize that we are robbing our children of the very lessons they came to teach us? When will we nurture imagination and integrity like we do sex and money? When will we realize that the system is broken... that money is a slave collar around our necks? When will we be brave enough to step into the unknown and create something new...
a society based on consciousness and love? Impossible you say? Possible I say. When will we change our thoughts from we are weak and nobody cares to we are strong ...and love is what connects us.
Every discovery must begin with a question.
Love!! - David
