The state of today's society is indeed one that stems directly from this principle:COMFORT above all.We go to work daily.We may not like it,but it pays the bills.We may not like our boss,but we need the paycheck to support the family.We then return home,where our main diversion is.... what else?Watching TV of course.Maybe sitting at the computer for a distraction from our previous distraction.That of course leads to lack of communication,strained family relationships,personal dissatisfaction and on the physical level obesity,various diseases and allergies...you name it.We claim we don't like our current reality.We hate the government,the education system,the health care system,the fact that we are not richer.We blame the rich,the politicians,God.....anyone else but ourselves.I have come to realise,after a rather unpleasant experience that no one is going to miraculously change things for me.Or for humanity as a whole.Unless we realise that we are the change.
I will repeat that.WE are the change.God cannot interfere with free will,which he so generously gave us.About time we used that free will.About time we woke up. If you want to change your poor self-image,do something about it.Work out.Eat wholesome, healthy foods insteads of packaged junk.Get out of the house and move.Your body was not made to be sitting still.It was made to move,to be free.In order not to feel lonely,again,the only way to meet people is to go out.Communicate more.Smile.Nothing is more drastic for boosting one's psychology than human interaction.You want to change things around you?Educate yourself.Network.Get your information from other sources than the television.Finally,TAKE ACTION.No action equals no change.
The lesson I learnt rather harshly-and I got to say this,it hit me like a freight train-is that inaction will only bring personal dissatisfaction,poor self-image and self-hate and of course it will bring no change.If you want something get up from the couch,the computer,anything that represents comfort for you.Run from it as far as possible.Get comfortable feeling uncomfortable and take the action which is necessary to take you to the direction of whatever it is that you want.Action brings change and God knows how necessary it is nowadays.Take action and change the world.
Till the next post,stay happy,stay safe and healthy.
With love and light,
