I have not watched the news in a long time. Simply because of its determination to ensure that every soul in this country is a recipient of negativity, hate, and anger. However, last night (after watching The Apprentice), I left the TV on to get an idea about what is happening in Aleppo, Syria. The pain is very real for those individuals experiencing that crisis. But on watching that footage, it sparked in me a reality/feeling/thought that I had never experienced before.
I believe that the UNIVERSE is daring us to make a change. Bear with me as I try to explain my position. Many people look at the universe as a container within which we reside. We view it as this vessel that stores our stars, moon, sky, earth and ourselves. However, we do not truly consider, that like us it has its own set of laws. If we can believe in the butterfly effect;
“A butterfly could flap its wings and set molecules of air in motion, which would move other molecules of air, in turn moving more molecules of air— eventually capable of starting a hurricane on the other side of the planet.”
Then surely the universe has its own set of rules to which we are not adhering to. I believe that the increasing negativity, hatred, and wars are the UNIVERSE’S desperate attempt to push us in a direction of love, patience, cooperation, and connection. In the UNIVERSE, we are tiny, yet our actions here on earth are causing hurricanes somewhere else.
Constantly we are faced with the question, what would I do if ….? Well today, start with realising that you are not powerless to create change. You can start by showing love to yourself. Accepting that you are capable of creating a better society, through the love you demonstrate to yourself, which will naturally radiate to others.
The crisis in Syria, is not a Syrian problem, it is a world’s realisation of the way we treat each other. The crisis in Syria is not bad, it is awful, and if we are not careful, the next time it could be you living that reality.
My personal final thought
My hope for this post is that it reaches people who can read more than more words but feel my words and sentiment. For the reader to take action and for us all to realise that LOVE is powerful and as strong a word as HATE.
