for us all to fully realize that we are dreaming our reality into being together; that the harmful things we do, our negative actions, ripple out and affect us all, as do the positive ones.
If we truly know this, maybe we will finally open up to the truth Ghandi spoke when he said we must be the change we wish to see in the world.
Maybe it will give us the strength to follow our bliss instead of slaving away at things that burn away our time on this earth but that don't really matter, that subvert our life's purpose and distract us from making positive change in our world. Would we find it gives us the courage to not only become what we most want to be and live the life we most want to live, but to encourage others on their journey as well (as opposed to holding them down with petty jealousy, catty remarks, and devastating 'helpful advice' that discourages them from following their bliss)? Maybe, in that realization, we'd find the ability to accept not only our deepest selves as we are, and truly and unconditionally love ourselves, but also our fellow man, and, as parents, accept our children and love them for who they are rather than who we wish they would be.
If we understand that not only is anything possible, but we create it together, we may find we can harness that to remake the world.
Then the question becomes: What kind of world do you want?
Be careful what you wish for.
Create a masterpiece.
