Eyes Wide Open November 9, 2010

_0001cObserving what is happening is the first step in bringing about the paradigm shift we need to manifest if we are to continue to co-exist with Planet Earth.

After all, if people are operating under the illusion that “all is right with the world” what reason would they have to band together to change it?

Quote:  Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has. ~ Margaret Mead

Aah . . . that’s better!

I must agree, Nancy.

I would add that the first step in dealing with any ongoing problem is bringing it to active consciousness.

A second notion, one that is likely to draw some fire, is that anger about known issues that are not being addressed is a very high state of consciousness, one that if properly applied, leads to personal realization and action.

I agree. The first step is to acknowledge “where we are,” and then decide “where we want to go from here.”

Anger can be incredibly motivating, as long as we’re not too focused on just fanning the flames.

Actually, without us humans mucking it up, all IS (or would be) right with the world! 😀

Exactly. The Planet will continue to exist . . . with or without us.

A journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step … read that somewhere …

One candle flame lights the next . . . without diminishing in intensity.

I love that quote by Margaret Mead. It reminds me of the fact that Jesus took 12 men, invested three years in them, went away and let them change the world.

Are you sure Jesus left? 🙂
