“Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world… today I am wise so I am changing myself” – Rumi
We are now living in a time unlike any other that the human race has previously seen. We can connect with one another and share information in a matter of a second either through television, Internet, cellphone, satellite radio etc… With all of this new “connectivity” we have these days, it’s no wonder that so many noble souls are using this as an opportunity to try and change the world.
Regardless of whether someone thinks it is the result of the global shift in consciousness or just a natural by-product of us being so connected with one another, there is no doubting that the excessive sharing of information and international friendships that are forming is having an effect on the whole of humanity.
With all the new information being shared about things like where tax-payers money is being appropriated, pharmaceutical companies creating customers not cures, chemtrails, etc.. it’s no wonder that people have gotten riled up. So much so that they are making it their main focus to tell everyone how messed up things are, how angry they should be, and how outraged they are by the lies. But is this the most effective method? Is getting people angered, frustrated and ready to fight someone going to be the best way to bring change unto the world?
“Dedicating your time to being AGAINST something is the same as dedicating your life to something that you hate; you feed it with your energy. Use what you are against to decide what you are FOR, and pour all of your focus and time and energy into that instead” – Teal Swan
We’ve all heard by now that everything in the universe is made of energy, even thoughts and feelings. The energy behind being against something is fear. The mere fact that we are against it indicates that there is a part of us that believes it may be more powerful than us, otherwise why would we spend time and energy being “against” it? Since our subconscious beliefs manifest as our outer reality, when we spend all of our time focused on what we are afraid of happening instead of what we desire to happen, we are operating from the subconscious belief that we are a victim or in danger of becoming one.
The underlying belief is “I don’t believe I am powerful enough to be my own solution, I believe other people, the government, the Illuminati, are more powerful than I am, they are a force to be feared therefore I need to spread more fear to everyone else by telling them how angry and outraged they should be.”
The problem with only focusing on what we are against instead of focusing on what we are for is that the energy of fear is lower vibrational energy, which means it’s not as effective or powerful as love, which is a higher vibrational energy.
Not only that, but we must ask ourselves, what exactly is achieved by getting everyone angry and ready to do something unless there is a solution in place? You can post a million memes about the ways the government or whoever has lied but if you are not promoting one solution to the problem then what exactly have you changed except for the fact that you may have made some more people angry about the same things you are angry about? Almost all people are motivated by pleasure.
If we align ourselves with the solutions instead of the problems we are much more likely to get other people motivated to want to be like us than we would if we are trying to convince them how angry they should be. The only way to effectively change the way we perceive the world and in effect, change the way we approach changing the world, is to change our relationship with ourselves. Hostile people see a hostile world, whereas peaceful people see a peaceful world.
So if someone is constantly finding problems and upsets in their external reality it is a perfect time for them to get introspective, look within and deal with their own problems and upsets about themselves. It is only at this point that a person is able to more rooted in compassion, understanding and forgiveness. It doesn’t mean we turn a blind eye to what is happening or we deny that it is happening, it’s just that we become more in vibration with the solutions to the problems instead of the problems themselves.
For example, let’s say a person is against GMO foods. Instead of being focused on how terrible Monsanto is, or how outraged we should be by what they’ve done, they can instead focus on eating organic, they could talk about recipes for non-processed foods, or tell everyone how great they feel and look after cutting out GMO foods from their diet. They have now switched the focus from hate and fear to love.
Or another person may be against war, so instead of talking solely about how we are being lied to and this person and that person are for the war and we need to hate these people, they can focus on war relief. They can tell people about a charity they can donate to that will help the victims of the war or invite people to pray or participate in mass meditations that are for the countries who are involved in the wars. These methods would be much more effective because it’s actually giving people an actual action to follow and a solution to the “problem”.
“There is no real need to save others, because they will help themselves learning from us, when we choose to shine our light of unconditional love. Through our loving examples others can create for themselves and opportunity to act the way they are inspired by us” – Raphael Zernoff
Being the change we wish to see in the world is always going to be more effective than just talking about the fact that things need to change. If we tell people what they need to do or what they should or shouldn’t do they are much less likely to listen. However, when we SHOW them how happy we are or how peaceful we can be in the face of life’s challenges, we let our life be our message.
If people see us being loving, kind, and positive, they are much more likely to ask us how we do it, or to follow our example because it is a human being’s innate nature to want to be cooperative and kind and helpful. If everyone just turns their attention inward first and foremost, and deals with their own “flaws” and “shortcomings” by practicing unconditional love for themselves first, we can all start to make this world a happier and more peaceful place to live by changing the one thing we for sure have control over…ourselves.
