I can only speak for me... for me I do what I can to help others, and not harm in obvious ways. I quit supporting things that I know bring harm to me
and others. Being as everything we do effects everyone, and yes I do believe that, I modified my behaviour and beliefs. I do not have all the
answers for everyone, nor do I claim to. I am making a attempt at raising the awareness that blaming other people, places, things does nothing but
create angst. I take responsibility for my thoughts, actions, demeanour.. I do not put myself down because I have faults, and allow others to be
themselves. No one is perfect.
I have seen so many things in life, lived through so very much. I blamed everyone for hurting me, in serious ways, but I changed that. I found a way,
not to forgive, but to be grateful for everything, and gave up blame and used my past as the lessons that were intended for me. So much of what we
live through is history... we wallow in it... which helps nothing.
A huge part of the situations of the world is because of history. We bring it up to justify today's behaviour.. the same is true for crimes, and
crimes against humanity. It even applies within the family system. We are stuck in the old ways, but many of us are attempting to change that. The
resistance to change is immense. We can all do it, one person at a time, one step at a time. What we have been doing for thousands of years
obviously isn't working.
We as individual's, and part of the 'We', must change ourselves. No one can do it for us. It is Us that must do it. Most people think people,
places and things would fix us... But that is not the truth. There is not enough money, stuff, whatever in the world to fix us for more than a
moment. Our minds deceive us in so many ways, making us believe that things outside us can make us happy.. but that is happy for a moment..
So many unsettled folks on this planet.. something much bigger is going on... I steer from using certain words, because language is limited and puts
certain idea's in others heads. I know this though, only certain people, few people, are not afraid to admit, and this includes me, that the
problems of this world is not them. It is Us, and We... and I am part of that. I am not saying some people do not antagonize the current issues, I
am merely saying that we do not have to feed into that, and the more we take responsibility for our part, the further we will evolve.
