Can you see the world we live in? Fenced, gated, and sealed we hide with our possessions not letting any in. Our neighbors are foreigners to our lives and our love goes not beyond our border. We sit with empty, shallow consciousness oblivious to realities truth. It Is much more pleasant, easy, and welcoming to create our own version that fits within the parameters of our check a box lifestyle. Entertainment is always more enjoyable than the repugnant bitterness of a cold, harsh truth. So we smile at our ability to ignore, grow our uncaring with every pretend smile, and regress with each dismissal of any moment that we feel is negative. Not listening to each other with open, objective curiosity we hinder our own evolution. If the problem isn’t knocking at our door we aren’t opening it to see. We have sealed our senses to anything beyond our own enjoyment and harbored the darkness as friends. Can you see the world we live in?
Can you see the world we will create? Far beyond the current selfishness, a word removed from hatred, anger, and violence. A world where understanding prevails and neighbors have become loved, accepted as kin. I see the gentle kindness of consideration exemplified by all through compassionate listening. Morality has become intrinsically righteous. Iniquity is no longer known and leadership is filled with spiritual pursuit. The adage of “live and let live” has been replaced with “live and help live”. The energies given off from each other are peacefully joyous and welcoming. A stranger smiles at another stranger, each wanting nothing but love for the other. I see future generations who stop to help someone who has fallen, it matters not if they are strangers or friends to each other. I see a world where the flora and fauna thrive with renewed vigor. The animals are no longer going extinct due to habitat loss and climate change. They have become co-owners of this beautiful reality. I see how love has changed the world. Can you see the world we will create?
