Ultimately, humanity is one, and this small planet is our only home. If we are to protect this home of ours, each of us needs to feel a vivid sense of universal altruism. It is only this feeling that can remove the self-centered motives that cause people to deceive and misuse one another. If you have a sincere and open heart, you naturally feel self-worth and confidence, and there is no need to be fearful of others.HH Dalai Lama
My Ordinary friend, Kathryn, told me about this site.
"Only Love Prevails."
Their idea is that it takes a small number of us (proportionally) to effect a shift in attitude, consciousness, direction. They are making it easy for those of us who are wanting to create the paradigm shift to be known to each other.
I am already doing many of their suggestions. I stopped watching TV about 10 years ago. I stopped reading the newspaper several years ago. Now I skim the headlines of an online headline email and read only what calls to me--not much negativity gets through. I can't tolerate listening to the news on the radio.
I am working toward changing my thinking and my speaking. While I have not arrived where I hope to be ultimately, I eliminate some negativity daily. Yay me. Yay us. Yay for the planet.
My latest challenge is finding movies that I want to watch. Violence, sexual assault, drugs, violence, crudity, poor production values, unintelligent and unintelligible dialog, dysfunction, mean people, crime, war, violence--did I mention violence?
Watching movies in the evening is my major form of entertainment. I am unwilling to subject myself to a continual onslaught of traumatic images. Not. Entertaining. (May the movie industry find this site soon, too...please.)
So, join me, please. Let's make peace. Together we can.
